#ncga: House GOP buying into “equity and diversity training” for cops?

That’s what it looks like: The House Select Committee on School Safety approved 14 recommendations to make schools safer. These recommendations made on Thursday, May 10, include more funding for school resource officers, licensing reciprocity for school psychologists, and requiring peer-to-peer counseling programs in schools. The school safety committee was created after the mass school shooting Feb. 14 in Parkland, Florida. Two subcommittees, one focused on mental health services and the other on physical safety measures, were formed from the full committee. Committee Chairman Rep. David Lewis, R-Harnett, said this isn’t the end of the process. The committee will continue…

$17 million worth of Dee-versity!!! (Um, yay?)

We’ve got yet another nugget for you to feast on and seethe over the next time some pointy-headed edu-crat tries to tell you there just isn’t enough of other people’s cash to “educate” all of those young skulls-of-mush: Public universities in North Carolina spend nearly $17 million per year on salaries for diversity and equal opportunity staffers, a new report has revealed. The University of North Carolina Equal Opportunity and Inclusion Study discovered that the systemwide diversity apparatus costs taxpayers $16,615,724 annually, not including an estimated $5,467,663 in benefits and $1,902,312 in office supplies and related materials. The numbers reflect cumulative costs…

Twenty-one pages of DIVERSITY courses?

Yep.  That’s what you’ll find in the course catalog for the Colleges of Arts & Sciences at UNC-Charlotte. Ah, yes. You can shovel all your hard-earned money over to the UNC campus in the Queen City so your young skulls of mush can prepare for the job market and adulthood with gems like “Introduction to Hip-Hop,” “West African Dance,”  “Gender and Communication,” and its sequel “Gender, Culture and Communication.” *Racist* departments like ROTC and Biology don’t appear to have any “diversity” courses.  But I’m sure the mob will fix that soooooooon.  Back to diversity.  UNC-C actually has a course on…

Yes, Duke University, “diversity training” IS a big waste of time.

I have a rule here.  This is a conservative site.  But a little debate never hurts anything.  Lefties are always welcome here.  Though I do make them comply with some simple rules: (1) no profanity, (2) no slander, and (3) sign up with an email that IDs you if you post under an alias.  Violate any of these three, and you get blocked.  You’d be amazed at how many lefties we have to kick out of here for not adhering to rule #1. It’s as though most of them can’t communicate without cursing.  Lefties are famous for claiming that they…

Now, open up and eat some of this DIVERSITY!

In 2015, Sandhills Community College hired an Associate Dean of Campus Diversity and Cultural Programs.  What’s that got to do with a school whose focus is job skills training?  Not a whole lot.     In the era of Obama — and for decades on a lot of college campuses — diversity means “white, conservative-thinking, Christian, heterosexual males need to bow their heads, shut their mouths, and know their place.” “Diversity” means set-asides — dorms, clubs, scholarships, special events, admissions policies — for preferred groups.  Anybody who is NOT Christian, white, heterosexual,male and / or conservative-thinking counts as a member of…

Readin’, Ritin’ & (*CRACK!*) Re-educatin’

When you think of community colleges, you tend to think of things like, oh, job training and continuing education.  Somehow, on a lot of community college campuses, the lines are being blurred between what you find there and at traditional four year colleges and universities.  As an example, take a look at a new hire just announced at Sandhills Community College:  Alfreda Stroman has been named Associate Dean of Campus Diversity and Cultural Programs at Sandhills Community College. In this newly created position, Stroman will work to promote employee and student engagement in activities that enrich campus understanding of diversity and…
