Controversy immediately erupted, when the Arizona State University offered a course titled, "English 401: U.S. Race Theory & the Problem of Whiteness." Students enrolling in the course will read, "The Possessive Investment in Whiteness," "Critical Race Theory," "Everyday Language of White Racism," "Playing in the Dark," and "The Alchemy of Race and Rights." Although the syllabus was not made public, the reading list clearly indicates a strictly one sided and profoundly anti-white agenda. Outrage, discussion and activism have put this class and the university in the cross hairs, and for good reason.

Following a meeting, attended by so called anti-racist supporters of Lee Bebout, an assistant professor of English, at Arizona State University in Tempe, AZ, the attendees decided to collect signatures of faculty, students and residents for a petition and hold a public display at the Tempe campus on March 3 at 11:30 am. 

“When they use that speech to promote violence against an individual or group of people in a public space or online, that should not be allowed,” Pieter Turley, a justice studies graduate student and vice president of Local to Global Justice said. Local self-titled 'anarchists' and left wing agitators also made plans to attend the demonstration. Of course, they showed up.

Campus staff and students claimed to have been threatened by the National Youth Front, despite a lack of any concrete evidence. Apparently, literature distribution constitutes a threat and not a Constitutionally guaranteed right. To the best of my knowledge, there's no police investigation, nor have any arrests been made. In reality, it was the side of the so called 'anti-racists' that were the ones promoting violence and not with words, I might add. 

At 11:30 am, Myself, Cpl. Thora Jaeger, several supporters and John Hess, of the National Youth Front, gathered at the corner of College Ave. & University Dr. to exercise our First Amendment rights, in a peaceful fashion. The National Socialist Movement stood in solidarity with the National Youth Front. As a member of NSM Media, I recorded video and took photographs of the day's events. 

I saw plenty of irony and hypocrisy, as these people condemned racism, while supporting a class that singled our an entire race of people and identifying them as a "problem." We did not promote violence, however, ASU Associate Professor in Justice Studies, Robert Poe, did verbally advocate violence, while one of his groupies took it to the next level and charged at N.Y.F.'s John Hess, while shouting profanities.  

During a recent 'teach in,' Robert Poe stated, "I advocate violence against racists who choose to politically mobilize." It makes me wonder how many more violent loons the Arizona State University has created, through their violent anti-white indoctrination.

Arizona State University is a taxpayer-supported public university, and this sort racially centered course has no legitimate place in a curriculum. In my opinion, A.S.U.'s administration has some explaining to do. That's one thing, Robert Poe and I can agree on (although, for different reasons). Imagine offering a “Problem of Blackness” class and the guaranteed fallout from that? "Why are Whites no longer entitled to their own racial and cultural space? Why must we share everything with other ethnic groups, whose hostile intent towards us is so blatantly obvious?" 4

Mariah Stewart is a black woman and a respected journalist. However, when an apparently drunk white guy violently overreacted to a perceived slight by a black motorist, Stewart tried to portray his reactions as emblematic of the Ferguson, Missouri police and by inference, white people in general.

Before you scream, 'It's not fair...YOU weren't THERE!', let's take a look at the evolving 'facts' about Ferguson. By the way, I'm NOT picking at the white guy, as EVERY ETHNIC GROUP HAS ITS 'BAD APPLES.' Some have more than others, while some may have generally less.

According to the latest news reports, police officers in Ferguson seem to have helped make the city a lot of money in automobile-related tickets. Further, the case has been tried to be drawn by various media outlets that the Ferguson police are 'racist,' simply because they most of their 'catches' are black.

However, while the alleged practices of the Ferguson police would be considered 'old-fashioned' and likely unethical in practice, the assertion is inherently flawed by false logic.

Because the population of Ferguson, Missouri is by and large mostly black, there is the GREATER STATISTICAL LIKELIHOOD that a black person in in the town will be caught for a motor vehicle violation. It would be the same if a majority of the town were Jewish, Hispanic, or of any noticeable socioethnic group.

To establish that the Ferguson police force was inherently 'racist,' one would have to prove a prevailing undercurrent of formal and informal practices and worldviews supporting that assertion.

And if recent revelations about one very high-profile former Ferguson, Missouri police officer is put forth, there is little to support discussion that police in that town are anything but perhaps a bit greedy.

KKK Bridge?
Posted March 6, 2015 by 1st. Sgt Justin
I seen this on Yahoo news. Obama is going to be there for this march. Also they are trying to change the name of the bridge. They are taking down or changing all the southern land marks.

Tell me what you think.

Civil rights landmark bridge is named for reputed KKK leader

SELMA, Ala. (AP) — When the nation's first black president steps onto the Edmund Pettus Bridge to honor the marchers beaten there 50 years ago, he'll be standing on a structure that's at once synonymous with the civil rights struggle and a tribute to a reputed Ku Klux Klan leader.The latter fact had all but faded from local memory until recently, when a Selma student group launched an online petition to rename the landmark bridge.

During his 50th anniversary address Saturday, President Barack Obama will be flanked on one side by a new historic marker commemorating "Bloody Sunday," when white police beat demonstrators marching for black voting rights on March 7, 1965. The sign, erected earlier this year by the state tourism department, notes Obama's 2007 appearance there just before his election and the accolades for "Selma," the recent film about the march.

It offers no details about Edmund Winston Pettus, a Confederate general and U.S. senator who lived in Selma after the Civil War. The Encyclopedia of Alabama, an online database sponsored by the University of Alabama, Auburn University and the Alabama Department of Education, says Pettus held the title of grand dragon of the Alabama Klan in 1877 — an assertion that's questioned by some historians.

Just beyond the other end of the bridge, a billboard erected recently bears a heroic image of another Confederate general, Klan founder Nathan Bedford Forrest. The ad, sponsored by a group dedicated to honoring Forrest, invites visitors to see Selma's "War Between the States" historic sites; next month is the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Selma, in which Forrest fought.

As the "Bloody Sunday" anniversary approaches, a student group in Selma is petitioning to rename the bridge, whose twin metal arches soar above the murky Alabama River. The online petition, addressed to Selma Mayor George Patrick Evans and to the National Parks Service, has been up for about two weeks. It does not propose a new name for the bridge.ohn Gainey, executive director of Students UNITE, a racially integrated youth group that began the petition, said having a white supremacist's name attached to the city's most visible landmark illustrates the city's deep racial divisions a half-century after the marchers were beaten at the bridge.

Just as in the 1960s, Gainey said, Selma is split by race. Blacks attend public schools, most whites go to private academies and many blacks still live in run-down shanties while whites occupy nice homes with manicured lawns, he said. Yet the town of nearly 20,000 people is about 80 percent black.

"We think it really does represent something larger," said Gainey.

The Rev. Joseph Lowery, a veteran civil rights leader, agrees the bridge's name should be changed to quit honoring someone with alleged Klan ties.

"They're responsible for too much death and misery. We don't need to honor them," said Lowery, a lieutenant of Martin Luther King Jr. who participated in the 1965 Selma-to-Montgomery march. "I'm with the kids. Let's change it."However, Selma historian Alston Fitts doubts Pettus had anything to do with the KKK. Although the city was a hub of racial animus in the 1960s, Selma was known as a "safe place" for blacks aligned with liberal Republicans after the Civil War during Reconstruction partly because of a lack of Klan activity, he said.

"He was a pretty lousy Klan leader if that's what he was," said Fitts.

Pettus' views on race were widely known during Reconstruction. In July 1871, when Pettus testified before a congressional committee investigating the Klan, he made it clear he believed whites, not blacks, were the victims in the post-Civil War South.

Pettus asserted that any campaign of intimidation was being waged by Republicans and "carpet-baggers" seeking to incite blacks to commit "acts of aggression on their part against the white people," according to congressional archives.

Michael Fitzgerald, a professor of history at St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota, is researching a book on Reconstruction-era Alabama. He said he hasn't found "persuasive evidence" that Pettus was a Klan officer or even member, but he said Pettus was "almost certainly" involved with the White League, a later terrorist organization."He is a Confederate general, he is a Democratic leader when white supremacy is their slogan — is what they exist to do," he said. "What I would say is Edmund Pettus is definitely a strong white supremacist."

An attorney who entered the Confederate army as a major in 1861 and rose to the rank of brigadier general by 1863, Pettus was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1897 after Reconstruction and served until his death in 1907 at age 86.

Pettus' legacy was still well known in Selma when the bridge was constructed just east of downtown in 1940, so the span was named for a man revered locally as a tenacious Southern leader. With Jim Crow laws still in effect, blacks had virtually no say in the decision.

And until now, there has never been a serious effort to rename it.

'White History Month' sign stirs up Flemington

White History Month Jim Boggess
Jim Boggess of Jimbo's Deli exercises his right to express himself.

Jim Boggess, proprietor of Jimbo's Deli on Main at 22 Main St., says, "No matter what you are -- Muslim, Jewish, black, white, gay, straight -- you should be proud of what you are. I shouldn't have to feel bad about being white."

But a neighbor and former customer, Bhakti Curtis, who is bi-racial, doesn't accept that. He said the sign, is "mocking Black History Month," especially the way the T was crossed in "WHITE." The cross piece was not right at the top, it was lower down, in a style used by the Ku Klux Klan and other white-power groups, Curtis said. That cross piece of the T has since been broadened to make it a more traditional, if top-heavy, capital T.

On March 3, Curtis saw the sign, told Boggess it offended him, but got no satisfaction. So he filed a complaint with the Flemington police. Detective Sgt. William Svard said Cpl. Louis Hribik's report indicates that Curtis said the sign is "racist," that he felt harassed by it and wanted to know what would be done about it.

Hribik went to Jimbo's, looked at the sign, spoke with Boggess and decided that the sign wasn't derogatory or racist and that no further police action was needed.

Boggess agrees with that assessment and believes he's lawfully exercising his right of free expression. He keeps a copy of the Bill of Rights in his establishment for ready reference.

He said reaction to the sign has been mixed. Lots of people have been photographing his sign with their phones and giving him a thumbs-up. But others have objected, including someone from the Business Improvement District who asked him to take it down, he said.

Another critic of the sign is John Puckett, owner of the Main Street Bagel Co. a couple doors away. He said the sign is "an embarrassment" to Flemington "and makes us look like a town full of inbreds."

Boggess said, "If there's any racial discrimination going on, it's by people who are objecting to his sign "because I'm white." He said that while other groups have their own celebrations, "I just want to be included. Why is this such a big deal? I don't get it."

He said, "I love everybody and everybody should celebrate what they are."

But Curtis is not feeling the love. "A business can't go putting racist signs in the window because everybody has a right to go in that store. Everybody! And have a right to buy something from that man and not feel demoralized or degraded."

He said that racial parity has not yet been achieved, as evidenced, for example, by the recent shootings nationwide of unarmed black men by police.

Boggess notes that he didn't invent White History Month; it has its own website, which celebrates it in April. "But I'm having it in March," he said.

So is the sign staying up? Boggess said on Wednesday, March 4, he'd leave it up for as long as he can, "but I'm getting a lot of pressure."

That same morning, Curtis encountered Sgt. Svard and Police Chief George Becker in Cocco's Cafe and asked them about the case. The conversation got unpleasant. Afterward Curtis went to the Hunterdon County Prosecutor's Office to file a complaint that he had been unfairly threatened with arrest. "You can't use authority like that," he said.

Because of the involvement of the Prosecutor's Office, Svard said he could not comment yet on what transpired at Cocco's.

Curtis observed about the Cocco's episode, "I'm big and black and have a loud voice. But that's not against the law." Curtis is determined to stand up for himself and continue his exploration of what is and isn't against the law. On Wednesday morning, he said he was going to see a lawyer to talk about whether his civil rights have been violated by the police and by the sign.

For the record, although Curtis has a problem with White History Month, he is part white. "I'm black, Irish and Polish," he said, "but I look black. I grew up in a white family, and I love white people. I just hate racism."
