Cornell Offers a Racially Segregated Rock Climbing Course, Then Scrubs Its Website to Hide Their Racism
Cornell University is very woke. They’re so woke that they offered a rock climbing course for BIPOC students only. BIPOC, for those of you unwoke, stands for black, Indigenous, and people of color — a catchall for everyone oppressed by white people.
The course ain’t cheap. Campus Reform reports that the school charges “$1,890—including the standard cost of a one-credit course, $1,575, and an additional mandatory ‘course fee’ of $315.”
It’s expensive to get woke at Cornell.
Campus Reform confronted school authorities about the blatantly racist course description, which led to the school scrubbing its website to change the course requirements.
If you’re going to be a racist, you should own it.
According to the new description, posted on Cornell’s website, the class will provide a “high degree of individual attention” and a “supportive space” where students will discuss “BIPOC individuals and groups in rock climbing.” The new description states that the class is now “open to all” students who are “interested in learning rock climbing with this special focus.“

Swalwell Pushes for ‘White Nationalism Task Force’
Democratic California Rep. Eric Swalwell called for “a white nationalism task force” at the Department of Justice Monday.
“They’re going to need, I believe, at the Department of Justice, a white nationalism task force to make sure that they’re understanding at the earliest of ages how people are being radicalized, if there are in fact training camps,” Swalwell said on “MSNBC Live With Katy Tur.”…
“There is no moving on. You know, January 6 is a day, sadly, that we’ll all remember. I do think that we have to take a approach that we took after September 11 and root out white nationalism, terrorism from our country,” Swalwell said.
“I do believe we need a September 11-style commission taken outside of Congress. I don’t want this in Congress, frankly,” Swallwell said.
I distinctly remember that it didn’t take long for Mediagov to appease Muslims after 9/11. There were a few misguided attacks on perceived Muslims following the attacks, and the media has been working diligently ever since on polishing the image of Islam in the West. A clear distinction was made between Islamic Extremism (“Islamism”) and moderate Islam. No such distinction will be made between moderate white-nationalists and right-wing extremists.
USAToday had a piece on anti-Asian violence:
Lawmakers denounce ‘crisis point’ of anti-Asian violence, call for action to prevent future attacks
Many of the lawmakers speaking Friday laid the blame at the feet of leaders like former President Donald Trump, who has blamed China for the pandemic and used derisive terms for the coronavirus. Advocates and Asian American lawmakers warned the language would inflame anti-Asian American sentiment…
The article seems to lay the blame on “white-supremacy,” which is always (in their eyes) closely linked to Trump and his supporters. All of the incidents listed in the article, and the included video, feature black perpetrators – and yet the article completely avoids that fact, instead making it look like black Americans have nothing to do with it, and are actually protectors of Asian interests:
And Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Calif., a former chairwoman of the Black Caucus, called for concrete actions, telling reporters, “as an African American woman, this is an issue that we know so well in the Black community. It’s an issue we cannot just turn our back to and just say … we stand in support.”

Judge Issues Shock Decision: Woman Who Pushed ‘White B****’ Into Path of Oncoming Bus Won’t See Prison Anytime Soon
A 40-year-old woman who shoved an elderly retiree in front of a moving bus has been spared jail time because the liberal judge sided with the defense attorney’s claim that the assailant is a good person who had a bad day.
Using this flimflam rationale, you could also excuse murderers, rapists and child molesters for their crimes.
The incident occurred in May 2018, when Amelia Doris — a 40-year-old black woman who has been dubbed the “Pimlico Pusher” — was captured on video pushing Linda Lancaster, who is white and in her 60s, onto a London street just as a bus plowed forward.
The races of the parties are relevant because prosecutors said the defendant uttered a racial slur at the victim before pushing her.
We get this story from the New York Post:
Bronx educator claims she was fired after sharing Holocaust story, refusing ‘Wakanda’ salute
A veteran Bronx superintendent once praised by Chancellor Richard Carranza for her successes in the classroom claims her career was derailed by his “equity” agenda — forcing her to take a demotion in a desperate bid to preserve her pension, according to a $150 million lawsuit.
Karen Ames, a 30-year Department of Education employee, says she was targeted by Carranza’s “Disrupt and Dismantle” campaign to oust or marginalize longtime employees because she is over 40, and Jewish…
At an implicit-bias workshop where superintendents were asked to tell their personal stories, Amestalked about her grandparents’ loss of two children during the Holocaust — only to have colleague Rasheda Amon tell her, “you better check yourself,” the lawsuit alleges.
“That is not about being Jewish! It’s about black and brown boys of color only,” court papers quote Amon as scolding.

Smith College Staffer Quits Over Anti-White Racism
A staffer at Smith College has resigned, publishing a letter accusing the elite women’s university of creating a “racially hostile environment” against white people…
An alumna of the private liberal arts institution, Shaw said the culture had changed forcefully after a 2018 incident when a black student accused a white staffer of racism for calling campus security on her. An investigation showed no evidence of racial bias, but the college put in place a list of initiatives aimed at fighting “systemic racism” on campus.
Yet the ideology driving the efforts seemed more concerned with inflaming anti-white sentiment rather than mitigating any form of racism, based on Shaw’s account.
“I endured racially hostile comments, and was expected to participate in racially prejudicial behavior as a continued condition of my employment. I endured meetings in which another staff member violently banged his fist on the table, chanting ‘Rich, white women! Rich, white women!’ in reference to Smith alumnae. I listened to my supervisor openly name preferred racial quotas for job openings in our department. I was given supplemental literature in which the world’s population was reduced to two categories—‘dominant group members’ and ‘subordinated group members’—based solely on characteristics like race,” Shaw’s letter says…
In January 2020, Shaw said, she attended a mandatory staff retreat “focused on racial issues.”
She said she wasn’t comfortable answering personal questions from the hired facilitator about race and “racial identity.”
“Later, the facilitators told everyone present that a white person’s discomfort at discussing their race is a symptom of ‘white fragility.’ They said that the white person may seem like they are in distress but that it is actually a ‘power play,’” she wrote.
“In other words, because I am white, my genuine discomfort was framed as an act of aggression. I was shamed and humiliated in front of all of my colleagues.”
