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] you didn't know that? ....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.


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 [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.



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 [] .....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.


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.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
