NYC Principal makes racist comments

A NYC Principal of Pan American International High School that serves immigrant students who have been in the country for less than four years, has been accused of making racist remarks about a few non-white teachers. Read more about this via the link below.


A Queens high school principal has drawn the ire of community members after allegedly making racially charged remarks about several employees.

...

Minerva Zanca, the principal of Pan American International High School, allegedly targeted several black teachers who recently filed complaints with the Department of Education Office of Equal Opportunity, according to the Queens Tribune.

Two of the teachers, who were fired, say they were victims of harassment and that their poor performance ratings were a result of racial discrimination. Another teacher, who quit, said she also felt targeted because of her race.

In a witness statement, the school's assistant principal, Anthony Riccardo confirmed their claims. He said Zanca called the teachers "gorillas" and made comments about their "big lips" and "nappy hair," according to WNYC.

"We're the only African-American teachers, and all three of us have left – which means there is no African-American teachers at the school when over half the population of the students look like us," Lisa-Erika James, the teacher who quit, told CBS New York.

"We really just want them to hold the principal accountable for her actions," John Flanagan, who was fired, told DNAinfo.

NYPD cop says to target black males 14 to 21

A NYPD officer named Pedro Serrano secretly recorded a conversation with Deputy Inspector Christopher McCormack, who told him to target black males from the 14-21 age range.

A top Bronx cop was caught on tape telling an NYPD whistleblower to specifically target "male blacks 14 to 21" for stop-and-frisk because they commit crimes.

Stop "the right people, the right time, the right location," Deputy Inspector Christopher McCormack is heard saying on the recording.

"He meant blacks and Hispanics," Officer Pedro Serrano, who made the secret recording, testified Thursday in Manhattan federal court.

"So what am I supposed to do: Stop every black and Hispanic?” Serrano was heard saying on the tape, which was recorded last month at the 40th Precinct in the Bronx.

McCormack said to focus on the Mott Haven section, where the problem "was robberies and grand larcenies."

"I have no problem telling you this," the inspector said on the tape. "Male blacks. And I told you at roll call, and I have no problem [to] tell you this, male blacks 14 to 21."

During cross examination, City lawyer Brenda Cooke got Serrano to admit that McCormack never said he wanted Serrano to stop all blacks and Hispanics.

"Those specific words, no," he told her.

Minority students at University of Texas targeted

Minority students that are walking near the West Campus apartments of University of Texas at Austin are being targeted with bleach ballons being dropped from above and trying to hit the students. This apparently has been happening since June.

The University of Texas in Austin is reeling from reports of black and Asian students seemingly being targeted and hit with bleach-filled balloons while off campus.

Dozens of students, alumni and faculty protested the attacks on campus Tuesday, after four students filed reports with the UT police department Monday saying they had been targeted.

Each of the students reported being hit while walking near West Campus apartments, a location that is off UT's campus, according to Cindy Posey, public information officer for the UT police department.

The incidents occurred from June through September, but students only came forward to report the attacks after being contacted by the UT police chief, Posey said.

...

The targets in all of the attacks are students of color who say the bleach balloons fell from high-rise buildings toward them.

"It's very frustrating to know that it's 2012 and that stuff like this still happens," UT student Jaysen Runnels told ABC News affiliate KVUE-TV.

The African-American student said he had been hit twice by "bleach bombs" on two separate occasions in the area known as West Campus.

"A bleach bomb fell and hit me, my roommate," said Runnels, who is among the students who filed a police report. "Well, almost hit us. It barely missed us."

Victoria's Secret Geisha Lingerie pulled after some thought it was racist

What do you think? Do you think the way the lingerie was being advertised was racist? Make sure to read the whole article and the original blog posts in the quoted article below.

It all started here. "I saw a link to [Victoria's Secret's Go East] line on the blog, Angry Asian Man," she says.

"Hooray for exotic orientalist bull----," wrote the blogger who included a link to the "Asian-inspired" lingerie line's centerpiece: "The Sexy Little Geisha," a mesh teddy that comes with an obi belt, chopsticks and a fan.

...

Immediately Jacinto sat down to write an insightful post on why she found the outfit, and the line in general, offensive. "It's the kind of overt racism masked behind claims of inspired fashion and exploring sexual fantasy that makes my skin crawl," she wrote in article published September 6 on the blog Racialicious, a site for commentary on the intersection of culture and race.

"There's a long-standing trend to represent Asian women as hypersexualized objects of fantasy," wrote Jacinto. She also took umbrage with the lingerie description as "your ticket to an exotic adventure" and the fact that none of the models for the collection were of Asian descent.

...

Jacinto, meanwhile, has gotten a lot of responses from commenters questioning why she cares so much about some bras and underwear. "It's important that companies like VS know that capitalizing on a stereotype and on a culture is tasteless and offensive," she explains. "The messaging we insert in our culture shapes people's attitudes—so questioning clothing like this is important."
