Black Lives Matter protestors surrounded the car of a black, transgender city council vice president Andrea Jenkins at a Pride event in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and held Jenkins “hostage” until the official agreed to sign a list of demands which included dropping the criminal charges against rioters.

Fox News reported, “The incident happened Sunday afternoon while Jenkins was attending the Taking Back Pride event in Loring Park, as the video shows her sitting in the front passenger seat of a white vehicle being blocked by a group of extreme Black Lives Matter demonstrators, many with their cellphones out recording.”

In a video uploaded to Facebook by violent “activist” Donald Hooker Jr., Jenkins can be heard telling someone on the phone, “It might be three days before I get out of here.”

“Hooker shows the camera a list of ‘The People’s Demands’ that Jenkins must agree to before she’s free to leave,” Fox News reported. “The handwritten note calls for the formation of a ‘community police accountability commission,’ to ‘reopen all the cases of murderers,’ to ‘drop the charges for all 646 protesters and other protesters for 2020,’ and to ‘make all information on the murder of Winston Smith available.’ It also demands the resignation of Mayor Jacob Frey and to ‘leave George Floyd Square alone. PERIOD.’”

Fox News added, “The protesters shouted each demand and asked if they had Jenkins’ support. She agreed, ‘Yes,’ to the first few before shaking her head when protesters called for Frey’s resignation. The crowd shouted again until Jenkins finally agreed and she asked, ‘Do you understand English? I already said it.’”

Jenkins released a statement addressing the incident on Tuesday, writing, “On Sunday afternoon, while attending a Pride event in Loring Park, something I’ve done on the last weekend in June for the past 20 plus years, I was verbally attacked, berated and held ‘hostage’ against my will by a large group of angry protesters.”

The statement added, “I continue to be willing to sit down with activists, advocates and protesters to understand their policy change demands and recommendations. I refused however to be bullied and held hostage to somehow accomplish that. Every citizen of this City has a right to bring forward their concerns, but no citizen has the right to detain and coerce anyone to do anything, that includes elected officials.”

    Karma is a b—h. Maybe she understands now what her idiot policies have done to the people of MPLS who don’t have some cushy political post. I bet she wanted to call the police…..

    Can’t foresee the creation of mob tyranny whilst focusing on individual acts of tyranny by a few policemen that probably have PTSD from dealing with scofflaws for life ?

Condoleezza Rice Dismantles Critical Race Theory

“I don’t have to make white kids feel bad for being white. So somehow, this is a conversation that has gone in the wrong direction.”

Condoleezza Rice

During an interview on ABC’s “The View” on Wednesday, Condoleezza Rice, a former Secretary of State and current Director of the Hoover Institution, slammed Critical Race Theory, saying that white people should not “feel guilty” over the past and that it is wrong to cause black people feel “disempowered by race.”

Her comments suggesting that people should be judged off the content of their character and not the color of their skin were made while discussing the issue of if parents should be able to have control over what their children are taught in school.

“If I could take a moment to talk about the whole issue of Critical Race Theory and what is, and is not being taught, I come out of an academic institution, and this is something that academics debate. What is the role of race and so forth?” Rice said. “And let me be very clear; I grew up in segregated, Birmingham, Alabama. I couldn’t go to a movie theater, or to a restaurant with my parents. I went to segregated schools till we moved to Denver. My parents never thought I was going to grow up in a world without prejudice, but they also told me, ‘That’s somebody else’s problem, not yours. You’re going to overcome it, and you are going to be anything you want to be.’ And that’s the message that I think we ought to be sending to kids.”

“One of the worries that I have about the way that we’re talking about race is that it either seems so big that somehow white people now have to feel guilty for everything that happened in the past. I don’t think that’s very productive,” Rice added. “Or black people have to feel disempowered by race. I would like black kids to be completely empowered, to know that they are beautiful in their blackness, but in order to do that, I don’t have to make white kids feel bad for being white. So somehow, this is a conversation that has gone in the wrong direction.”

Chicago County White Employees Mandated to Take ‘Racial Equity’ Re-Education Program

Published

Chicago

White employees of Chicago’s Cook County will now be required to take a new “racial equity” re-education curriculum mandated by Board President Toni Preckwinkle. The curriculum, obtained by Chicago City Wire, reports the White employees “will be required to acknowledge they are racist, that they behave in a biased way towards blacks and are responsible for blacks having lower average incomes than whites.”

The curriculum is part of Preckwinkle’s push towards “embedding racial equity into local government.” She announced the new policy via executive order on September 7, and it took effect beginning September 13.

Employees are required to take the “Racial Equity 101” and “Racial Equity 102” and be instructed in “racial equity basics” by so-called “expert” trainers, all funded by the taxpayers. The “policy of ‘racial equity’ calls for favoring black employees and contractors over white ones in pursuit of equality of outcome by racial group.”

Chicago City Wire reports “Module 1” assesses which employees have adequate “emotional intelligence… to be able to recognize their invisible biases in personal and professional lives towards people with protected class identities,” a workshop outline explains.
“Outcome: recognize how bias impacts (your) daily behavioral decisions.”

Additionally, the Objectives states: “build on self-awareness, reflection and identity,” the outline reads. “What is bias? What are the implications of bias? What formed your biases? Which biases are good and which are harmful?”

Preckwinkle argues that discrimination against whites is necessary to combat income differences in Cook County that have resulted from “public policies that led to patterns of exclusion” and have prevented residents from “full inclusion…in the economic, social and political life of Cook County.”

According to the policy “Racial equity is essential for national, regional and local prosperity.” Also, “Equity and inclusion is more than just the right thing to do; It is an absolute economic imperative.”

“Racial equity’ is the condition that would be achieved if race one’s racial identity no longer predicted, in a statistical sense, how one fares” the policy states.
