Snowflakes 101: University of Arizona distributes 20-page booklet on how to deal with microaggressions - recommending the offended say 'OUCH' and the offender 'OOPS'
I would love to stand up in a class at this university and shout (((Trump))) and watch the bastards go into convulsions!
In an attempt to create a more respectful campus environment, the University of Arizona has released a booklet on handling microaggressions.
The 20-page packet discusses a number of guidelines for inside and outside the classroom for teachers and students to follow.
One section titled 'Oops/Ouch' discusses one possible method to use in identifying and reacting to microaggressions in a classroom.
One section titled 'Oops/Ouch' discusses one possible method to use in identifying and reacting to microaggressions in a classroom
The guideline reads: 'If a student feels hurt or offended by another student's comment, the hurt student can say 'ouch.'
'In acknowledgment, the student who made the hurtful comment says 'oops.' If necessary, there can be further dialogue about this exchange.'
The suggested 'oops/ouch' approach is one of a number of possible intervention strategies professors can use in classroom scenarios that may make marginalized groups uncomfortable provided by the booklet.
The definition of a microaggression is also lined out in the booklet, which was approved by the University's Vice Provost for Inclusive Excellence Jesús Treviño, Ph.D.
The suggested 'oops/ouch' approach is one of a number of possible intervention strategies professors can use in classroom scenarios that may make marginalized groups uncomfortable
He was hired in May 2016 to help promote diversity and inclusion on the school's campus.
A microaggression is defined as 'the everyday verbal, nonverbal, and environmental slights, snubs or insults, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative messages to target persons based solely upon their marginalized group membership.'
These include perpetuating a number of race-based or gender-based stereotypes which often aren't considered offensive, but have subtle underlying tones of heteronormativity, sexism, and racism.
Continuing to mispronounce the names of students after they have corrected you time and time again
Professor: 'Is Jose Cuinantila here?' Student: 'I am here, but my name is Jesús Quintanilla.'
• Scheduling tests and project due dates on religious or cultural holidays
'It has just been pointed out to me that I scheduled the mid-term during Rosh Hashanah, but we are okay because I don't see any Jewish students in the class.'
• Setting low expectations for students from particular groups or high schools 'Oh, so Robert, you're from Pine Ridge High School? You are going to need lots of academic help in my class!'
• Calling on and validating male students and ignoring female students during class discussions
'Let's call on John again. He seems to have lots of great responses to some of these problems.'
• Expressing racially charged political opinions in class assuming that people with those racial/ethnic identities do not exist in class
'I think illegal aliens are criminals because they are breaking the law and need to be rounded up and sent back to Mexico.'
• Singling students out in class because of their backgrounds
'You're Asian! Can you tell us what the Japanese think about our trade policies?'
• Denying the experiences of students by questioning the credibility and validity of their stories
'I've eaten and shopped plenty of times in that part of town and it's nothing like you describe it. How long have you lived there and who are you hanging out with?'
• Assigning class projects that are heterosexist, sexist, racist, or promote other oppressions
'For the class project, I want you to think about a romantic relationship that you have had with a member of the opposite sex. Think and write about your observations.'
• Not respecting students gender pronouns, especially students who use gender neutral pronouns
'Alex, you use 'they/them' pronouns. No, that's too confusing. They is plural. I'm going to use him for you.'
• Using heterosexist or sexist examples or language in class.
'Atoms sometimes attract each other like this male and female here. At the same time, atoms sometimes repel each other like these two males here.'
• Assigning projects that ignore differences in socioeconomic class status 'For this class, you are required to visit four art galleries located in the downtown area. The entrance fees vary, but I am sure you can afford it.'
• Assuming that all students are from the U.S and fully understand American culture and the English language (i.e., be aware that there may be international students in the class)
'What do you mean you have never heard of The Cosby Show? Where have you been hiding?'
• Discouraging students from working on projects that explore their own social identities 'If you are Native American, I don't want you to write your paper on Native Americans. You already know everything about that group and besides you will be biased in your writing.'
• Asking people with invisible disabilities to identify themselves in class
'This is the last time that I am going to ask. Anybody with a disability who needs extra help, raise your hand!'
• Making assumptions about students and their backgrounds:
'You're Latino, and you don't speak Spanish? You should be ashamed of yourself!'

Chelsea Clinton cashes in on Elizabeth Warren rally cry with new children's book 'She Persisted' after her global health tome is massive flop
I'm sure you heard this past January Chelsea released her worldwide health book 'Governing Global Health: Who Runs the World and Why?'
The book proved to be a dismal failure for Chelsea, who claimed she never even bothered to promote the book in the wake of her mother Hillary's defeat in last year's election.
That might explain why the book performed so poorly, and just two months after its release is number 128,444 on the Amazon bestsellers list. But Chelsea should look at the bright side.
Pelosi's book is #477,717 on Amazon's bestsellers list selling like 3,000 copies!
Chelsea Clinton will be releasing her first children's book it was announced on Thursday, with the former first daughter penning a collection of stories about remarkable American women.
'She Persisted' will hit bookshelves this May, and tell the true-life tales of 13 women 'who never took no for an answer.'
The collection of stories was inspired by Elizabeth Warren according to a release sent out by publisher Penguin Young Readers, and as evidenced by Chelsea's decision to use the Massachusetts senator's rally cry for the title of the book.
That rallying cry was born out of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's attack of Warren on the Senate floor in February when she opted to read a letter written by Coretta Scott King criticizing Jeff Sessions while debating his nomination for Attorney General.
After she refused to stop reading the letter, which broke an arcane rule that states no Senator shall impugn a fellow Senator, McConnell stood at his podium and said: 'She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.'
And after all that it appears that Chelsea will be the first to cash in on the popular catchphrase, with a spokesperson for Penguin offering no comment when asked by DailyMail.com if any of the proceeds from the book will be going to charity.
Yes...The Clinton Foundation.
Teamwork: Chelsea Clinton (above in 2014 with Warren) will release a children's picture book this May that was inspired by Senator Elizabeth Warren's refusal to be silenced
I'm sure her new book is headed for the same fate as 'Governing Global Health: Who Runs the World and Why?' I wonder in the foreword if Indian squaw 'Lizzie' will discribe how she used to skin buffalo back when she was with the Cherokees?

No different than any other time right?
Watch how different it was for Barry pitched softball questions and in unison, they genuflect at his beck and call. I remember once during the IRS scandal a
reporter loyalist asked Josh Earnest what Barry ate for lunch! Now imagine that scandal took place during the Trump administration targeting libs.
- “Golf, what does it do for you?” – CBSCBS’s Harry Smith opened an interview with Obama during his first year in office by mocking the notion that liberal reporters could be biased and then concluded it by asking the leader of the free world about golf. “Golf, what does it do for you?” the brave reporter asked.
- “I’m wondering if you think that [Republican presidential candidates are] uninformed, out of touch, or irresponsible?” – CNNCNN reporters have been especially indignant that conservative media outlets are being called on at White House press conferences. But the outlet’s journalists weren’t always so tough on the White House. In November 2011, CNN’s Dan Lothian spoke truth to power by asking then-President Obama if he thought Republican presidential candidates Michele Bachmann and Herman Cain were “uninformed, out of touch, or irresponsible?“
- “Do you have a vindictive streak?” -NBCNBC “Nightly News” anchor Lester Holt, who moderated one of the 2016 presidential debates, held Obama’s feet to the fire in one of his last interviews as president with questions like: “Do you have a vindictive streak?”
- What has “Enchanted you the most from serving in this office?” – The New York TimesEarly on in Obama’s presidency, New York Times reporter Jeff Zeleny — with a straight face — asked Obama about what most “enchanted” him in his first 100 days in office.WATCH:Video 334Zeleny is now CNN’s senior White House correspondent.
- “In this fatherless world, where did you learn to love?” – CBSIn one of the harder-hitting questions of all time, CBS reporter Harry Smith asked Obama about the way he acquired feelings. “In this fatherless world, where did you learn to love?” Smith asked.
- “What hard things do you want to tackle at this point?” – CNNCNN’s Jim Acosta, who has been especially upset about conservative media access to the White House, held Obama’s feet to the fire by noting, “it seems that you’ve built up some political capital for the remaining months of your presidency,” before asking: “What hard things do you want to tackle at this point?”
- “Are you ready to call yourself the ‘comeback kid’?” – ReutersReuters’s Caren Bohan gushed over Obama at a 2010 press conference, saying he “racked up a lot of wins in the last few weeks that a lot of people thought would be difficult to come by” before asking: “Are you ready to call yourself the ‘comeback kid’?
- “You definitely have some impressive accomplishments….And more than a lot of presidents who manage to get reelected. My question is, is it enough?” – CBSCBS’s Steve Kroft was mocked in 2011 when he spent an interview with Obama on “60 Minutes” lobbing softball question after softball question, including this remarkable exchange:KROFT: You definitely have some impressive accomplishments.OBAMA: Thank you, Steve.KROFT: No, you do. And more than a lot of presidents who manage to get reelected. My question is, is it enough? Why do you think you deserve to be reelected?The Atlantic’s Conor Friedersdorf called the interview “a typical example of a broadcast journalist failing to hold a powerful politician accountable.”
- “Have you given up on the Republicans?” – CBSNot to be content with praising the interviewee’s accomplishments, Kroft went on to ask the president whether he had “given up” on the GOP. “Have you given up on the Republicans?” Kroft asked. “Have you stopped reaching out to them? Are you just out there now trying to get your message across?”
- “Tell me, what do you consider your major accomplishments?” – CBS (Again)After buttering Obama up with soft questions about his golf game and whether he had given up on Republicans, Kroft finally went in for the kill. “Tell me, what do you consider your major accomplishments?” he asked. The Washington Free Beacon compiled some of Kroft’s most openly affectionate moments towards Obama.WATCH:
Get a barf bag first.Video 335
- “[W]hat do you think Republicans will be sipping and saying next year?” – CNNIn the same press conference where Obama was asked if he was the “comeback kid,” CNN’s Dan Lothian asked the president what he thought “Republicans will be sipping and saying next year?”
- “How do you avoid the dangers of being too cocky?” – CNBCCNBC’s John Harwood, whose closeness with the Clinton campaign was exposed by WikiLeaks last year, found it necessary to ask the president in 2009 how he avoids “being too cocky.” “How confident are you that your plan is going to work, and how do you avoid the dangers of being too cocky?” Harwood asked.
- “How does your golf game hold up next to Tiger’s?” – ABCIn 2013, Obama was finally pressed on the issue that matters most: his golf game. “How does your golf game hold up next to Tiger’s?” asked Dan Ashley, a reporter at ABC News’s San Francisco affiliate.

On a tip from
TO TRULY UNDERSTAND THE IMPACT, CLICK ON YOUR STATE!!!
"Always Challenge the Status Quo."
THIS IS JAW DROPPING DATA
Check out the numbers for your state.
We’ve all known for a long time, that many Illegals don’t pay taxes, because they work for cash, yet they get a lot of government freebies like food stamps, phones, school, medical, utilities, rent, etc.
We’ve got so many Americans, veterans, elderly, mentally incapable, etc.
that are now homeless and that can’t figure out the ”system"
to get the help they really deserve. And That Sucks!!
When ‘open border’ liberal assholes see this eye-popping data I wonder what goes through their mind? In what way, shape, or form does this benefit America?
Here is a State by state detailed infographic on
How much illegal aliens burden you and your state:
