This is a list of infuriating items. I post them as a personal catharsis and would not blame anyone who chooses to not look at them at all.
1. Apple fires black diversity officer and hires white one, because the black one dared to use reason for a moment and forgot that what matters in diversity is the perfect uniformity of Marxist thought that only White people seem to be able to do.
Cultural appropriation is the adoption of the customs, practices, or ideas of a culture, which is not said to be authentic or sensitive enough to minority groups.
Left-wing campaigners have claimed that sombreros and other fancy dress costumes, and some types of food, are offensive as they are appropriated.
Last year, Magdalen College was criticised for a 1920s-themed ball. Some students said it could cause offense to female and ethnic minority students on the basis that “people of colour and women were entirely absent from college spaces” during the time period.
(Of course cultural appropriation is never a problem if a black or Chinese person wants to go medical school. I mean, thats a purely Greek thought institution and all but hey cultural appropriation, like interfaith outreach, is a one way bridge right?)
French police have arrested four individuals in connection with organised drug dealing and have also found a massive arsenal of weapons including fully automatic rifles and anti-tank rocket launchers.
The four men were arrested in the regions of Eure-et-Loir, Eure and Yvelines which lies just west of Paris. Republic of Chartres prosecutor Rémi Coutin commented on the case saying investigators had found narcotics, 13,000 euros in cash and a massive arsenal of military-grade weaponry, radio broadcaster Europe 1 reports.
“The investigators seized seven weapons of war, including two loaded and ready-to-run M80 rocket launchers capable of destroying a tank, two Kalashnikovs, one Spanish assault rifle, two machine guns,” Coutin said.
(The article never gives a clue as to who was arrested, but that is a clue by itself. Also it references many similar busts in no go zones and of muslims.)
4. Pat Condell tweet:
The UK government’s programme to de-radicalise jihadis focusses too much on Muslims, says the pro-Islam “think tank” that invented the phoney word “Islamophobia” in the 1990s as a censorship tool. Okey dokey.https://t.co/6JfQiHX6qM

Officers opened fire on the man, believed to be a Frenchman of north African origin, after he began to shout in Arabic when the vehicle he was travelling in was intercepted at a motorway toll near La Jonquera on the Spanish side of the border.
He was hit in the leg and rushed to a nearby hospital.
(Spanish police need to spend more time at the range)
Islam came to Mexico in spurts over the past decades, with immigrants from Lebanan and Syria, and even a group of Spanish Sufi Muslims who came to convert members of the Zapatista revolutionaries in the ‘90s. It caught on quickly. The country now has around 5,270 Muslims—triple what it had 15 years ago, Iacolutti says. An Arabic teacher helps them read the Quran and a scholarship offers a chance to study at a medina in Yemen.
In Mexico, which is largely Catholic, Iacolutti found that having a belief system is more important than following a particular religion. She spoke to Catholic mothers who didn’t want their daughters to convert to Islam, but were pleased when the change inspired a more pious way of life. “In Mexico it’s better to convert to Islam than in Europe,” she says. “They don’t think of terrorists.”
(They are correct. When you surrender, the enemy is nicer to you at first)
Thank you all who sent in these stories, Richard, M., Wrath of Khan and many many more.
