The last I heard, Mr Livingstone was still hiding in a disabled toilet with a crowd of journalists outside shouting questions about Hitler. Has he flushed himself yet?

Re the young woman pictured above - the one constantly interrupting, screaming “fuck you!” and waving her big arms about – our budding intellectual - I very much doubt her passion is driven by the finer points of free speech or social equity or whatever. Little Miss Cliché Mountain Well, the Tumblr Tank got the attention she was so desperately seeking...
...at risk of seeming unkind, readers are invited to compare the mugshots of Mr Perry and Mr Grylls, these two contrasting expressions of modern masculinity, and ponder which is likely to attract the more widespread and vigorous sexual attention. On a related note, Iowahawk has this to say about a certain aspect of "modern" masculinity.
wtp, I used to work for an imaging company in San Diego that did that (among many other things), and I assume they still do. I have a scanner and could do it myself, but if I were to pay someone to do the drudgery of scanning them en masse, that's who I'd call. They seem to have survived the last two recessions, but they're in a much smaller, but nicer facility than when I worked there. I'm guessing that the photographic lab department I was a part of no longer exists.

Ms Kai Cheng Thom is, of course, a social worker and an aspiring therapist. Oh, great. Just what the Narcissist needs: a steady supply of vulnerable, easily manipulated victims.

David, ...logically, it’s hard to see how encouraging black students to plan ahead and turn up on time gives some crushing advantage to white students. It doesn't, in itself, give whites an "advantage" so much as they (the Educators™) do not believe black students are capable of it. They are (unwittingly?) employing the same overtly racist concepts the Klu Klux Klan used a century ago, ergo, blacks are inherently savage and can never be truly civilized.

Tanker, Why are SJWs so racist as to encourage non-whites to be utter failures, good only for the plantation? Because they're "Progressives" who really have always been Eugenicists. They've never quite given it up; thanks to their erstwhile fellow travelers in Germany c. 1933-45, they just can't admit it publicly anymore, so they invent foggy euphemisms that they believe might fly over the heads of us peasants.

Jeff Goldstein shoos people off his front porch... Of course, an Instapundit link to that beautiful rant drew in the Trumpsters, who proved Jeff to be absolutely correct.

Heather Mac Donald on the anti-rational horseshit that is “critical race theory.” Somewhat related, I suppose: SJWs want to train whites as monkeys.

Jonathan, I bet she's told all her comrades how she totally owned two oppressive white males Some of the comments at the Hypeline link appear to claim that very thing.

It's not like people would fake these things to get attention on social media. Wait...what? Have any of these "racist incidents" of recent years turned out to be genuine?

Apparently, they just laughed when Jamie and Adam said "Don't try this at home."

How did the aggrieved students vote? Did they raise their hands? Perhaps they nodded or shook their heads. I assume nodding one's head in agreement is still acceptable.

I used to think she was just an over-indulged child with the internet as a plaything. Now I think that's too generous.

RY, Do any these students take time out of protesting and being offended to, you know, *study* anything? I think it's a safe bet that they're all Grievance Studies majors, so I'd wager they get class credit for their protesting/disrupting/beclowning.

It’s one of the reasons I don’t have a Twitter account. The only reason I have a Twitter account: This old-school master of internet snark.

Microagression has reached a new level of absurdity. (I thought it might be parody, until I scrolled down their Twitter feed. Oh dear lord.)

Hedgehog, Really a transparent ploy to get at least some of the advocates of the changes some employment when they graduate... Exactly... and all too predictable. They think they're being "progressive" and "revolutionary", but they haven't changed their tune in decades.

Well, I know what my name would have been: my parents claimed I was conceived in the back seat of a '49 Mercury... maybe that's why I've been a "car guy" as long as I can remember.

Burnsie, Odds are her mother didn't know what the word meant, just that it sounded "pretty". In American urban black culture, there almost seems to be competition to come up with the most unique (pronounced yoo-nee-kwa) girls' names (sometimes boys' as well); the one with the most "creative" and unpronounceable spelling wins. Perhaps it began as a rejection of "dominate white culture", but who knows... (Too be fair, something similar exists in the yuppie/hipster white culture as well. Surnames as first names have been en vogue since the 1980s at least -- and spread to middle class suburbia -- for long enough that it's become almost a cliché.)

mojo, But that's running into that annoying supply/demand thingie. Which is why the self-styled "social justice warrior" types have been loudly demanding since the 1970s that these programs be expanded.
