A Top Black Lives Matter Leader Just Got A New Job Somewhere You’d Never Expect

One of the leaders of the movement America’s police officers say has put them in the cross hairs will be teaching at Yale Divinity School this fall.

#BlackLivesMatter activist Deray McKesson will teach “Transformational Leadership in the #BlackLivesMatter Movement,” as part of the school’s “Transformational Leadership for Church and Society” program.

“Yale has a long tradition of training individuals to lead in churches, institutions of higher learning, and society. We envision this new program as a means to bring students into contact with proven leaders who will challenge them not only to think about leading in new and creative ways but inspire them to reach beyond their current aspirations,” Yale Divinity School Dean Greg Sterling said in a statement.

Not everyone is thrilled.

“This is a guy who has made a living out of race hustling, of dividing people by skin color, making totally unfounded, stupid claims, who doesn’t appear particularly erudite,” said Tucker Carlson on Saturday’s Fox and Friends.

Yale student Aryssa Damron joined Carlson on the program to express her disdain for the project.

“The other teachers teaching the other courses at divinity school are senators and reverends, or Yale alumni, and yet we have this random Twitter star teaching a course because Beyonce follows him on Twitter maybe,” she said.

According to McKesson’s LinkedIn profile, his only teaching experience was between May 2007 and June 2009, when he was a middle school math teacher.

“I hate seeing that Yale is creating leaders who are going to divide instead of leaders who are going to unite,” said Damron, a sophomore at Yale.

Carlson noted that McKesson’s teaching gig was one more liberal step by a university that is synonymous with liberalism.

“Does this devalue the Yale brand?” he asked. “Or is there anything that could devalue the brand of Yale in the minds of Americans?”

Idiot Professors Being The Racist Pots Calling The Kettle Black

There is a very distressing post by Mac Slavo at SHTFplan.com, about these college professors who not only suggest that their students act like fools in censoring themselves and in being overly self-conscious for being white, but the faux teachers are actually threatening to give students lower grades for not complying with the censorship.

So these professors are actually telling the world just how intolerant and closed-minded they are, and now they are telling the parents of these students that those parents’ tuition payments are worthless. Why send your kids to college where they would get good grades if they do good work and learn the course material in normal circumstances, when now it appears that the students might fail a course for not being sufficiently moronic like these idiot professors?

At Washington State University, for example, if students use terms such as “male” and “female” (I am not. Making. This. Up.), “students risk a failing grade,” according to a “Women and Popular Culture” professor’s syllabus. I’m glad I didn’t take a “Women in Popular Culture” course when I was in college. Obviously, that course material will be critical in getting better paying jobs after college graduation!

Another Washington State University professor writes in his syllabus, “understand and consider the rage of people who are victims of systematic injustice…” (You mean like all the qualified white people who are denied jobs or placement in colleges because of their whiteness?); and he concludes, “James Baldwin wrote that people of color have an obligation to feel rage over this nation’s history of racism.” It is a shame that some elitist professor is putting all that pressure on some young black student to “feel rage,” when all the guy really wants to do is get through his classes so he can go back to the dorm and party it up, like all the other students.

The first professor also says the students risk a failing grade for not “deferring” to “non-white” students. How insulting, in my view. I mean insulting to the “non-white” students! But this just shows what these idiot professors think of their black students, that the black students need to be “deferred” to, like they are cripples or something. If I were a young black student, I would say “No thanks” to the clown masquerading as a college professor. Just treat me as just another student, if you don’t mind. I think that many of these professors smoked a lot of pot and did other drugs as well, really frying their brains so that they don’t think rationally by the time they are in their mid-20s. (And frankly, look at all the burn-outs we have in the White House and other Washington apparatchiks; they are totally fried.)

This “white guilt” crap really is just that, a lot of crap. Only collectivists think that way. If you are someone who has not harmed anyone, then you have no guilt, black or white, Asian or Hispanic, etc. You are an individual. The real racist is someone who tells others that they have guilt or are bad just because of what their skin color is. And these professors are also racists when they demean black students by making them out to be cripples. And I think those racist professors should cut it out.

Watch: Fox News Co-Host Just Asked 1 Question About ‘Black Lives Matter’ That Will Have Them Outraged

As America reels from the execution-style slaying of a Texas police officer on Friday and the violent anti-police rhetoric chanted by Black Lives Matter marchers in Minnesota on Saturday, one reporter has asked this simple question: How much hate can one group incite before it is classified as a hate group?

The racial polarization of America and the war against police officers were the topics being discussed Monday on Fox News’ Fox and Friends when co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck asked guest Kevin Jackson of the National Review that big question.

“Kevin, why has the Black Lives Matter movement not been classified yet as a hate group? I mean, how much more has to go in this direction before someone actually labels it as such?” she asked.

Jackson had much to say in response.

“Well, they should do it; but unfortunately it’s being financed by the leftists. And ironically, it’s people that have nothing, really no concern at all about black lives,” he said.

Jackson also asserted that the Black Lives Matter movement needs to address black community issues before turning its rage on others.

“The sad part about it is the impact that it’s gonna have in the black community and the fact that it takes away so much thought about what really is the problem in the black community, which is a lack of whole black families,” Jackson said. “What it allows people to do is sort of say, “Hey, let’s point the finger at everything but where it really needs to point.’”

“If we had more black families whole in the community, we would have a lot less of this,” he continued. “If we had clergy who were willing to support real issues and change in the black community, we’d have a lot less of this. And of course, we’ve got the Congressional Black Caucus, who actually loves this type of strife.”

It’s Time We Stop Ignoring Racism In America

Yesterday, Donald Trump said: “The shooting in Virginia is a mental health problem, not a gun problem.”

I slightly disagree. Yes, we need to consider the mental health concerns when it comes to gun violence; however, in this case, it is a racism problem.

Too many people want to ignore the giant pink elephant in the room, hoping it will just disappear. Well guess what? We have ignored it so much that it is bigger than the room.

America has a racism problem, but not the kind that the liberals, mainstream media and special interest groups want you to think we have. America has a reverse racism epidemic.

Liberals are pandering to their base, using division, false narratives of discrimination and wars on everything.

Victimization is the new normal. The new criminals are the victims; and if you’re White, you should feel guilty for your God-given pigmentation or lack thereof.

White people are not the only ones with a bullseye on their foreheads; Christians, Patriots, Conservatives, and free thinkers are enemies of the state.

It’s time we stop ignoring the real issue. So many people are afraid to broach the subject for fear of being called a racist. Racism exists, and it is getting worse. Not because of people, but because of policies that lead to division and special interest groups who promote it.

If we continue to ignore the problem, the pink elephant will turn into Godzilla. Politicians and churches, especially Black churches, have a responsibility to confront this problem. You know it’s there. Stop ignoring it because of political correctness or fear. Political correctness is what’s tearing our country apart.

Wake up! It’s time to come together and tell these zealots: your agenda is no longer welcome.

After This Insane Comment About On-Air Killer, #BlackLivesMatter Activist Tries To Cover His Tracks

A self-proclaimed leader of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement who has played his hard line social activism and eager community agitation into a chance to peddle his race-centered views through left-leaning media, DeRay McKesson, many would say, is nothing if not an opportunist. And when the opportunity arose yesterday to whip the horses of his race-baiting bandwagon in the immediate wake of the horrific on-air ambush murders of two white TV journalists, McKesson wasted no time.

As pointed out on the Twitter-monitoring website Twitchy, McKesson had heard initially that “the man who shot and killed a WDBJ7 reporter and photographer…was a white man, and instinct took over.”

That “whiteness will explain away nearly everything” comment quickly drew sharp criticism from Twitter users who pushed back hard against McKesson’s presumption of “white guilt,” noting that the BLM race-baiter’s rush to judgment exposed his own deep-seated racial prejudice.





After the truth came out — that the fired TV station employee who shot and killed his former colleagues was a black, gay, Obama-supporter known for making trouble in the workplace — the prominent BLM activist tried to cover his Twitter tracks, as Breitbart News pointed out:

DeRay — who gained fame as social media activist and inserted himself into the Baltimore and Ferguson riots – then reportedly added his own comments [to earlier race-based tweets]. The tweet by DeRay has been removed from his Twitter timeline.

Since the social media episode in which the BLM agitator tried to jump on what he may have thought would be a way to divert attention from black-on-black killings, McKesson has tried to explain away his initial instinct to blame “whiteness.”

The latest backtrack came Thursday morning on his Twitter feed:


Of course, in the minds of many, all this effort to say he was simply reacting to initial news reports about the horrific TV killings only serves to underscore this black activist’s own prejudicial instinct to make everything — even a terrible tragedy such as the slaughter of two young TV journalists — about race. Clearly, not everything can be viewed and judged in such black and white terms.
