Civil rights leader condemns McAuliffe’s race-based teachers’ plan as’ racist ‘and’ insulting ‘
A civil rights leader and parent activists in Virginia condemned Virginia Democratic candidate for governor Terry McAuliffe for highlighting the race of teachers in the Virginia public school system and lamenting that more teachers are white while ‘About half of Virginia’s public school students are not.

“This is explicitly and implicitly a racist approach to education,” Bob Woodson, a civil rights veteran and president of the Woodson Center, told Fox News on Monday.

“We had to work hard to diversify our teacher base,” McAuliffe said at a campaign event in Manassas on Sunday. “Fifty percent of our students are students of color; 80% of the teachers are white, so what I am going to do for you, we will be the first state in America. If you’re going to teach in Virginia for five years in a high demand area – it could be geographic, it could be classes – we’ll pay for room, board, tuition, any college, any university or any HBCU [historically Black colleges and universities] here in Virginia. “

Woodson condemned this idea as insulting and racist.

“The assumption is that in order to recruit more black teachers than you have to subsidize candidates to teach, they don’t offer that to white candidates,” the civil rights veteran said, adding that it assumes that Black students “need grants to teach.”

“It’s really insulting too,” he said. “Why is he talking about providing special assistance to teachers, candidates, and then talking about HBCUs? It’s more than a [racist] dog whistle – it’s a dog megaphone. ” CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR TOP STORY.

Anti-Biden rallying cry “Lets Go Brandon” causes collapse of mainstream media
Corporate media and liberal journalists have come together, united in a common cause as everyone from supposedly neutral journalists to far-left pundits went nuclear in an attempt to silence three words: Come on Brandon.

The phrase became an internet sensation last month after an NBC reporter at a NASCAR Xfinity Series race mistakenly reported that fans in the stands were chanting “Let’s Go Brandon” after a victory for driver Brandon Brown, as they were really shouting, “F– k Joe Biden!”

Memes, jokes and comments immediately began to spread across the internet, posted by users mocking NBC’s coverage during the interview. The “F – k Joe Biden!” the chants, which began at some major sporting events across the country as the President’s poll numbers sag, have now been replaced in some venues with “Let’s Go Brandon” chants.

“This is, I think, a witty and funny viral version of media dishonesty telling us something that is clearly not true that we can see with our own eyes, and that is why I think it is. is so popular with so many people, ”Outkick founder Clay Travis told“ America’s Newsroom ”Monday.

But the popularity of the song infuriated the left, leading to an onslaught of angry tweets, columns and hot-shot shots from liberal pundits. NPR called the term “vulgar” and CNN’s Edward-Issac Dovere was so offended by the phrase that he called it “an inside joke telling the President of the United States to engage in a sexual act.”

Washington Post reporters Ashley Parker and Carissa Wolf wrote about what they saw as “vitriolic” from Biden critics in an article titled “Biden Critics Launches Increasingly Vulgar Taunts” . CLICK HERE FOR MORE.

Russian and Chinese leaders absent from COP26 climate summit
Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping are not among world leaders present at the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow, Scotland, this week, raising questions among attendees about their commitment to reduce gas emissions at greenhouse effect.

Xi chose not to attend the UN summit in person, instead submitting a written statement calling on developed countries to take action, but not including a new commitment on climate action. China is considered the largest emitter of greenhouse gases in the world.

Putin also chose not to attend the summit in person, citing concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic. A Kremlin spokesman said the Russian government sees climate action as “one of our foreign policy priorities,” although the United States and other countries have criticized Putin for slow progress.

President Biden slammed China and Russia after a meeting of G-20 countries in Rome on Sunday, accusing the two countries of making a poor effort to tackle climate change on the eve of the Glasgow summit .

“The disappointment is that Russia, and including not only Russia, but China, has basically not come forward in terms of commitments to tackle climate change,” Biden told reporters on Sunday. “And there’s a reason people should be disappointed with this. I found it disappointing myself.” CLICK HERE FOR MORE.

A FEW WORDS OF APART
