The question is will this outcome affect Jesse Jackson’s scholarship offer for the accuser?
He said he is waiting until the woman is “strong enough” to meet with him for prayer, and so he can formally offer her a scholarship. He said the offer stands, regardless of the outcome of the case.
Solidarity predicts end of affirmative action May 3, 2007Posted by C.A.R.D in affirmative action, African Americans, African-American, Black, Blacks, Citizens Against Racism and Discrimination, Indian, Johannesburg, Racism, Racist, reverse racism, South Africa, White, Whites.
A Johannesburg metro police campaign to recruit white, coloured and Indian members could be part of the slow death of affirmative action, the trade union Solidarity said on Thursday.
The scrapping of affirmative action — and discrimination against young white people — at entry-level is “a rapidly growing trend”, said Solidarity’s deputy general secretary, Dirk Hermann.
Apart from the Johannesburg metro police, several mining houses and large businesses are actively recruiting white people at lower levels, he said.
“This means that affirmative action is slowly dying from the bottom up.”
Solidarity saw the move as the first step in a process of exempting young people from affirmative action.
However, Hermann said it should not only be scrapped at the lower levels of the labour market, but throughout.
At the moment — in the metro police — minorities are being given the message that they are being recruited, but should not expect promotion.

From globalpolitician.com :
I had written much of this essay more than a year before I finally decided to post it online. A couple of personal experiences brought me onto the subject of non-white racism. I hesitated to post it, mainly because I instinctively dislike writing about anything related to race. I was brought up that way. Partly, I also convinced myself that I was first and foremost against Islam, and that writing about skin color would only complicate this fight.
However, after thinking about it for some time, I find that none of these arguments hold true. I am tired of ideological censorship. Western nations can never mount a defense against Muslim immigration if this is always dismissed as “racism.” But above all, if you believe that non-white racism exists, it is actually immoral not to deal with the problem and its victims. I am convinced that not just non-white, but also anti-white racism, are real and underestimated phenomena.
In London, an elderly driver who had a heart attack careered into a bus. Here you had a dying man, people trying to save him and police trying to clear the scene. Meanwhile, black youths at the scene just wanted to fight the cops. They shouted, ‘Who cares — it’s just a white man’.”
It is becoming increasingly clear that some in the African National Congress want to ensconce affirmative action as a permanent measure and thus enforce a new form of apartheid, the Freedom Front Plus (FF+) said on Tuesday.
The party intends asking the International Labour Organisation (ILO) to pay urgent attention to its complaint about affirmative action, handed to the ILO’s Pretoria office on Youth Day last year, FF+ spokesperson Willie Spies said.
The complaint specifically deals with the fact that affirmative action in South Africa is increasingly being given a permanent nature, and that the position is being worsened through often-repeated populist statements in this regard by Labour Minister Membathisi Mdladlana.
“Mdladlana has this past weekend once again made the news when he said affirmative action will never be phased out in South Africa, but to the contrary will be sharpened.”
Spies said that going by Mdladlana’s past statements, it is clear he not only condones black-against-white prejudice, but even encourages it. “The ILO should take note of Mdladlana’s reckless actions in this regard.”
Houston’s affirmative action program — it was created to stop discrimination but now it’s helping the rich get richer. If you think affirmative action was controversial before, wait until you see what a multi-million dollar mess it has become.
Drive south on the bridge to Kemah and look to your right. It’s hard not to notice an 11,000 square foot mansion. The property appraises at about $2 million. Do the owners look like they need affirmative action help from Houston’s city hall? Well, they got it — to the tune of $12 million.
We asked city affirmative action director Velma Laws, “Do you think it’s fair that people with mansions can get affirmative action contracts?”
“I believe it’s fair if they are qualified to participate in the program,” she responded.
Imagine a big icebox pie, except this one doesn’t just have lemon filling. It’s full of money — city contracts. For 22 years Houston’s city hall has used affirmative action to make sure qualified minority and women-owned companies get a piece of the pie. Contractors wanting city business have to make a good faith pledge that a percentage of the work will go there.
Black-on-white Halloween attackers get probation, house arrest February 4, 2007Posted by C.A.R.D in "People are going to be screaming about this", African Americans, African-American, Andrea Bouas, Anti-White, Black, Black on White, Blacks, Card, Citizens Against Racism and Discrimination, court, Cyn Yamashiro, Gibson Lee, Halloween attack, Halloween Hate Crime, Hate Crime, hate-crime enhancements, house arrest, Judge Gibson Lee, Juvenile Court, Juvenile Law, Laura Schneider, Long Beach, Long Beach attack, Long Beach hate crime, Loren Hyman, Los Angeles, Michelle Smith, probation, reverse racism.
In a decision that shocked both sides – and left the prosecutor in tears – a Los Angeles County judge yesterday released four black teens to their parents to serve 60 days of house arrest for the severe beating of three young white women on Halloween night. The attack on Laura Schneider, 21, Michelle Smith, 19, and Loren Hyman, 19, which occurred in in the Bixby Knolls section of Long Beach, was carried out by a large group of black teens – as many as 30, according to reports. The upscale neighborhood is known for lavish Halloween displays and has long attracted crowds.
Ten teens were charged in the attack. All maintained their innocence throughout the trial. Juvenile Court Judge Gibson Lee [ (562) 491-6159 (dept. 246) ] found nine of them guilty last month.
“Perhaps the only thing worse than suffering 13 facial fractures was seeing my friend Laura lying on the ground lifeless,” Hyman told the court earlier this week, as victim-impact statements were offered before sentencing.
Schneider suffered a concussion after being struck by a skateboard when someone yelled out a racial slur.
Hyman, who was scheduled to have 4 1/2-hour facial reconstruction surgery yesterday, sustained multiple fractures in her nose and around her eye.
“I hope they’re still in jail when our injuries are finally healed,” Schneider said.
Both asked for “the harshest punishment possible” for the nine minors, saying they had done nothing to provoke the beatings and have been scared to leave their homes ever since.
But the sentences for the first four of the defendants issued yesterday were far from harsh. Instead of the nine months in probation camp Deputy Dist. Atty. Andrea Bouas had requested for three of the teens, Gibson sentenced them to probation until age 21, house arrest for 60 days and 250 hours of community service.
Pleasantville school official alleges reverse racism by school board January 31, 2007Posted by C.A.R.D in Anti-White, Discriminate, Discrimination, Lawsuit, Pleasantville school, Racism, Racist, reverse racism, Van Syoc, White, Whites.
A longtime school district official is suing the Board of Education for alleged reverse discrimination, claiming the board puts race above qualifications in its hiring practices. Ben Mora, who is white, claims the board has “demonstrated a clear pattern of discrimination against Caucasians and in favor of minority candidates for key administrative positions over approximately the last 15 years,” according to the lawsuit filed last week.
Mora is currently the district’s director of funded programs.
“They’ve been looking past objective qualifications, including the minimum legal requirements, and hiring people who aren’t qualified for these positions based, apparently, on their skin color,” said Clifford Van Syoc, who is representing Mora. “It’s wrong. It’s unlawful.”
None of the past five superintendents has been white, and the district went 15 years before hiring a white candidate as a principal at any of its schools, the suit claims.
Board President Jayson Adams said he has not seen the suit, but defended the board’s hiring practices, saying there is no discrimination. “If there’s an accusation of reverse discrimination in the school district, overall the highest-paid administrators are not minorities,” he said.
Opposition call for Justice minister to resign over refusal to appoint White judges January 28, 2007Posted by C.A.R.D in Brigitte Mabandla, Free State, Democratic Alliance, Inkatha Freedom Party, Freedom Front Plus, discrimination aginst whites, Koos van der Merwe, Geoff Budlinder, ANC Racism, White, Citizens Against Racism and Discrimination, Card, Anti-White, Whites, reverse racism.
Opposition parties have called for the resignation of Justice Minister Brigitte Mabandla, and accused her of racism and of sabotaging the judiciary for her refusal to appoint white male acting judges in the Free State to fill temporary vacancies.
The Democratic Alliance, Freedom Front Plus and the Inkatha Freedom Party warned yesterday that Mabandla’s refusal will further serve to hamper the sound administration of justice and lead to further backlogs in the Free State court.
Mabandla’s ban on the appointment of white judges in the Free State, which was reported earlier this week, sent shockwaves through the opposition, with the DA’s Justice spokeswoman Sheila Camerer accusing her of putting “politicking around transformation issues ahead of sound justice administration”.
The IFP’s Justice spokesman Koos van der Merwe said yesterday that Mabandla has demonstrated, through the ban, that she is racist and that she has no regard for the judiciary.
“This is not the first time that racism has reared its ugly head in the appointment of judges,” Van der Merwe said in a statement.
“We vividly remember how advocate Geoff Budlinder SC, a staunch ANC supporter, was refused an appointment as a judge simply because he is white. We also remember the words of Judge Cachalia, referring to the lack of skills of judges, when he said: ‘our chickens are coming home to roost’.” (more…)
After a racist anti-Asian article was printed in Princeton University’s student newspaper, the newspaper staff defended printing it in order to supposedly “lampoon racism”:
An article in the annual joke issue of Princeton University’s student newspaper has left some readers accusing its staff of racism. The Daily Princetonian issue included a column with a byline that closely resembles the name of Jian Li, an 18-year-old Asian man who filed a civil rights complaint against the university last summer after he was denied admission.
Under a byline of Lian Ji, the article published Wednesday used broken English and spouted racial stereotypes to bash the school for his rejection.
“Hi Princeton! Remember me? I so good at math and science. Perfect 2400 SAT score. Ring Bells?” the article begins. “Just in case, let me refresh your memories. I the super smart Asian. Princeton the super dumb college, not accept me.”

About a month after members of the Duke lacrosse team were falsely accused of raping a stripper last year, 88 members of the Duke faculty fanned the flames of hysteria by signing a letter announcing that they were “listening” to students “who know themselves to be objects of racism and sexism.”
Maybe they should have been listening to the accused, several of whom had iron-clad alibis. Now the professors are going to need a new example of “racism and sexism” at Duke since their case in chief has turned out to be a fraud.
In lieu of a gang rape perpetrated by high-stepping white male athletes against a poor black woman, the Duke lacrosse case has turned out to be another in a long string of hoax hate crimes in which whites are falsely accused.
The lacrosse players denied that any rape had occurred and immediately submitted their DNA to the state, confident that the DNA would prove them innocent.
It did: Not a trace of DNA from any of the lacrosse players was found on the accuser, though this girl had more DNA in her than a refrigerator at a fertility clinic.
She had DNA from five other men, which ought to have raised suspicions about her story that she had not had sex with anyone for the week before the alleged gang rape. Well, that was one of the several versions of events the accuser has offered police to date, although my personal favorite was the one in which Elvis came back from the dead and sexually assaulted her. (I think that was version No. 3—I’d have to check my notes.)
This is the second time this woman has accused a group of men of gang-raping her. One more time and it’s officially considered a hobby.
Late last month Uppsala University was found guilty of discrimination against Swedes by the Swedish Supreme Court (Högsta domstolen). Three years ago, the university refused to enroll Cecilia Lönn and Josefine Milander in its Law Faculty even though they had better grades than thirty other students with a foreign background.
In 2003, thirty of the available places for the law courses had been reserved for students with a foreign background. Cecilia Lönn and Josefine Milander, both with better grades than all of those thirty students who were allowed in, were refused by the university. The two young ladies sued the university. They won twice in lower courts. Now the Supreme Court, too, has ruled in their favor and ordered the university to pay them a compensation of SEK 75,000 (approximately €8,200). The court expenses they made, about SEK 41,000 (approximately $4,500), will be reimbursed by the state.
Neither the Supreme Court nor the two women question the principle of positive discrimination, as long as it is practised between candidates who are equally qualified. Not so, however, when somebody with a foreign background is favored even though the Swede had better grades, since this is not positive discrimination, but just plain discrimination. Hence the Supreme Court wanted to set a clear example of what cannot be considered to be positive discrimination and therefore is illegal.

WASHINGTON TWP. | The Family Guidance Center of Warren County is a defendant in a federal civil rights suit filed last month by two former staffers.
Michael A. DeLuzio of Kresgeville, Pa., and Jane Evans of Kutztown, Pa., allege they were the victims of racial and gender discrimination while working at the human services agency on Route 57.
The suit filed in U.S. District Court in Trenton alleges a black supervisor subjected them to racially and gender-motivated harassment and retaliation.
Former Crisis Unit Supervisor Michele Scrubb began speaking to DeLuzio and Evans “in a degrading and harassing manner based upon the plaintiffs’ race and sex,” according to the lawsuit.
Richard McDonnell, executive director of the guidance center, said Evans and DeLuzio brought their complaints to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to no avail.
McDonnell — who did not work for family guidance at the time of the alleged harassment — said nevertheless the two former employees have a right to file a lawsuit.
Waverly, Pa., attorney Peter G. Loftus denied McDonnell’s assertion that the EEOC complaints did not lead anywhere. But Loftus declined to elaborate and said he never comments on lawsuits because he is often misquoted.
He and Trenton area attorney Kristin Accardi filed the suit on behalf of DeLuzio and Evans. Accardi could not be reached for comment after regular business hours Wednesday.
The family guidance center offers mental health and other services primarily to county residents who cannot afford private physicians. The agency gets its money to operate from the state and county governments.
Victory Against Racism: Delay of Affirmative Action Ban Rejected January 2, 2007Posted by C.A.R.D in Discrimination, Racism, Racist, Citizens Against Racism and Discrimination, Card, Discriminate, affirmative action, First amendment, admissions, reverse racism.
A federal appeals court on Friday ordered Michigan’s universities to stop using affirmative action in admissions immediately — rejecting an agreement approved by a lower court to let the institutions keep affirmative action for the current admissions cycle. The appeals court’s analysis also suggested that groups challenging Michigan’s new statewide ban on affirmative action face an uphill climb.
The ruling was a blow to the efforts of universities to mitigate the short-term effects of the Michigan Civil Rights Initiative, adopted by a wide margin of voters in November, which bars public colleges from using affirmative action in admissions. Higher education leaders opposed the measure and some groups that favor affirmative action have sued in federal court to overturn the initiative, which is commonly known as Proposal 2.
Friday’s ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit threw out an agreement that had been pushed hard by Michigan and Wayne State Universities and the University of Michigan. Under an accord they reached with the state’s attorney general last month, the universities were allowed to push back the start date of Proposal 2 from December 23 to after the completion of this year’s admissions and financial aid cycle.
Tidewater Community College is accused of discrimination. The school will not comment on the allegations because officials say it is a personnel issue. Officials add the school policy is to hire without regard to race or color.
Ed Tompkins, a trucker from Chesapeake, and Russell Luck, who lives in Portsmouth, say combined, they’ve driven more than three million miles accident free and Luck says that safety record is no accident, “That’s not by chance. I mean you really have to pay attention.”
So it’s no wonder a friend suggested both apply to be tractor-trailer instructors for Tidewater Community College’s Portsmouth campus. Tompkins says there were a total of five applicants there, “I felt that I was probably more qualified than anybody else who was sitting there.”
But in June 2005, they learned neither man got either of the two openings. Tompkins has 15 years experience, Luck 18.
Luck says, “I’ve done everything I can in 18 years to do my best and it’s like somebody walks up and slaps you in the face.”
Luck may sound like he has an extreme case of sour grapes. But the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission determined this fall there was something rotten in TCC’s hiring process– discrimination. EEOC documents for both truckers read quote,”There is reasonable cause to believe that the charging party was denied hire because of his race, white.” The two people TCC did hire, the truckers charged, were African-American. Tompkins says,
University of Michigan to alter admissions for Proposal 2 November 29, 2006Posted by C.A.R.D in admissions, affirmative action, Card, Citizens Against Racism and Discrimination, Discriminate, Discrimination, Racism, Racist, reverse racism.
The University of Michigan will remove consideration of race and gender from undergraduate admissions by the effective date of Proposal 2, the voter-approved ballot question banning some affirmative action programs.
U-M Provost Teresa Sullivan, speaking before the university’s faculty Senate Assembly on Monday, said the changes will be in place if Proposal 2 takes effect Dec. 22 as scheduled.
A pro-affirmative action group, By Any Means Necessary, has filed a federal lawsuit challenging Proposal 2 as unconstitutional. However, legal experts and Proposal 2 supporters have noted that similar challenges in other states have failed, meaning the amendment, approved by 58 percent of voters in the Nov. 7 election, will likely take effect as mandated, 45 days after the vote.
Sullivan told faculty Monday that a group of U-M officials reporting to undergraduate admissions and the provost’s office will help in making immediate “tactical” decisions regarding the admissions process.
Some of the questions, admissions officers say, include how to continue to keep track of applicants’ race and gender information, which is mandated by the federal government, while keeping it out of the hands of the readers who judge the applications.
Ward Connerly: Affirmative Action Over November 28, 2006Posted by C.A.R.D in affirmative action, African Americans, anti-affirmative action, Blacks, California, Card, Citizens Against Racism and Discrimination, Michigan, reverse racism, Whites.
The days of the much-criticized affirmative action policy are numbered, the program’s biggest critic says.
“I think the end is at hand for affirmative action as we know it,” former University of California regent Ward Connolly told the Los Angeles Times, noting that an “anti-affirmative action wave washing over America” will bring to an end the race-based preferences used for decades to help African-Americans, Latinos and other disadvantaged ethnic groups. No one in America, he said, should receive preference in education, jobs or government contracts because of their skin color or sex.
Encouraged by his victory in Michigan, where a ballot measure banning racial preferences in public education and hiring won handily, Connerly said he is considering sponsoring similar ballot measures in one or more states, including Oregon, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Missouri or South Dakota.
BU College Republicans mock race preferences November 22, 2006Posted by C.A.R.D in affirmative action, African-American, Card, Citizens Against Racism and Discrimination, Discriminate, Discrimination, Diversity, Latino, reverse racism.
Drawing attention to what they call “the worst form of bigotry confronting America today” Boston University’s College Republicans are offering a “Caucasian Achievement and Recognition Scholarship” as a mocking assault on racial preferences.
Applicants must submit two essays: one describing their ancestry and another describing “what it means to you to be a Caucasian-American today.”
The $250 scholarship also requires applicants to be at least 25 percent Caucasian.
BUCR President Joe Mroszczyk, a senior from Danvers, said the last requirement and the essays are based on prerequisites for the National Hispanic Recognition Scholarship.
“We think it’s silly to quantify race like that, just as it’s silly to give any scholarship based on race,” said Mroszczyk, a political science and history major. “We don’t think racial preferences are good or have a place on a college campus.”
Affirmative action is discrimination November 21, 2006Posted by C.A.R.D in affirmative action, Card, Citizens Against Racism and Discrimination, Discriminate, Discrimination, Diversity, ethnicity, Michigan, national origin, Racism, Racist, reverse racism.
Last week, Michigan voters overwhelmingly passed the Michigan Civil Rights Initiative and made Michigan the fourth state to ban affirmative action for minorities and women in public universities and state government. The outcome of the vote is a huge blow to those who subscribe to the religion of “diversity,” especially University of Michigan President Mary Sue Coleman. For those of us who believe all individuals should be treated equal under the law regardless of their gender or skin color, MCRI’s passage is a sign that we may be on the verge of winning the fight against the inherently discriminatory practice of affirmative action.
MCRI is similar to the ballot initiatives passed in California in 1996 and Washington state in 1998 as it prohibits “public institutions from using affirmative-action programs that give preferential treatment to groups or individuals based on their race, gender, color, ethnicity or national origin for public employment, education or contracting purposes.” Florida is the other state that banned the use of racial preferences. In 1999 Gov. Jeb Bush pre-empted a threatened-ballot initiative by issuing an executive order banning affirmative action in state agencies and universities.
Ward Connerly and Jennifer Gratz have voluntarily put the burden upon themselves to fight racial preferences. Connerly is a conservative, black businessman and former regent of the University of California system who previously led the effort in California to ban affirmative action. Gratz was the lead plaintiff in Gratz v. Bollinger, one of the cases challenging the University of Michigan affirmative action’s policy cases decided by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2003. Gratz and Ward led the small, poorly funded operation to a 58-42 victory on MCRI despite being outspent, 3 to 1.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Governor Jeb Bush says the state’s spending on contracts with businesses owned by minority group members and women has nearly tripled since he abolished affirmative action nearly eight years ago.
A record 761-point-2 million dollars was spent with certified minority and female-owned contractors in the last budget year, which ended June 30. According to the governor’s office, that’s 497 million dollars — or 189 percent — more than for the 1998-99 budget year.
The spending total includes 135-point-3 million dollars in contracts with African Americans, 158-point-8 million dollars with Hispanics, 45 million dollars with Asian Americans, 11-point-2 million dollars with American Indians and 410 million dollars with non-minority women.
Bush in 1999 did away with affirmative action programs for state contracting and university admission that gave minority group members a race-based edge and replaced it with his “One Florida” initiative.
