Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Here in Portland OR, smack dab in the middle of one the most concentrated areas of white supremacists in the country [the I-5 corridor from NorCal to the Canadian border]....bet you didn't know that? http://www.splcenter.org/... ....A local channel this morning did a '10 second' story on the Western Washington University president mentioning that their campus needs to be more diverse. University
President Bruce Shepard just wants to have his campus reflect the diversity of the larger community around them.

HOW DARE HE!!

Intro

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

A quick search of WHITE and WWU brings in the expected websites; the dailycaller, redstate, da freepers, etc etc [no more free mentions here] going absolutely batshit about it.  But my 'favorite' site, right there by Tucker Carlson's POS site is ni**ermania.dumbshits or something like that.  It appears the story started at campusreform.org [a conservative student site] and the author Kaitlyn Schallhorn.  A newly graduated 'journalist' I guess.  Six paragraphs is an article right?  If I'm lucky I'll have more paragraphs.

When.

I.

Finish this story.

Than her.

I am amazed that these stories are so conveniently placed right around another short-coming from the conservative side of things, like a mass shooting, by a racists.  I just find that odd that these stories appear, when needed.  Case in point, the author refers to a 2012 speech and RECENT blog post by the President of Western Washington University [http://www.wwu.edu/...] .....from January of this year.  Since when is 3 months recent, on the web?  So, this recent blog post upset the author so much that to put fingers to keyboard took 3 months.  I hope the author is getting the help they need.  Judging from the plethora of stories, 30, all the waaaaay back to uh, February of this year, researching must be soooo hard for the author.

Paragraph WIN!

Carry On and Be Surprised.

SQUIRREL!

Update:  CBS This Morning Just had to weigh in on this 'controversial' story  So, there you go, the birth, rearing and maturity of a faux outrage story.  Just another of another of another. Be WARNED:  Lars Larson makes an appearance in the video . . . sorry.
