Muslims are stoopid...

Daily Mail in Britain (also picked up by Fox and The Corner):
A postcard featuring a cute puppy sitting in a policeman's hat advertising a Scottish police force's new telephone number has sparked outrage from Muslims...The advert has upset Muslims because dogs are considered ritually unclean and has sparked such anger that some shopkeepers in Dundee have refused to display the advert.

And then:
Dundee councillor Mohammed Asif said: 'My concern was that it's not welcomed by all communities, with the dog on the cards.

'It was probably a waste of resources going to these communities.

'They (the police) should have understood. Since then, the police have explained that it was an oversight on their part, and that if they'd seen it was going to cause upset they wouldn't have done it.'

Councillor Asif, who is a member of the Tayside Joint Police Board, said that the force had a diversity adviser and was generally very aware of such issues.

Ahhhh, a diversity advisor. The Soviets had a word for that, it was zampolit.

Here's the part most Americans can identify with:
A spokesman for Tayside Police said: 'Trainee police dog Rebel has proved extremely popular with children and adults since being introduced to the public, aged six weeks old, as Tayside Police's newest canine recruit.

'His incredible world-wide popularity - he has attracted record visitor numbers to our website - led us to believe Rebel could play a starring role in the promotion of our non-emergency number.

Followed, of course, by:
'We did not seek advice from the force's diversity adviser prior to publishing and distributing the postcards. That was an oversight and we apologise for any offence caused.'

Here's the offensive photo:

Here's a photo of the head of my Muslim Complaints Department:
That's my Chief of Staff with the Head of Security--you figure out who's who.

Oh, and in case you think, "Well, THAT could never happen HERE."
Here's a related case from Minnesota (via the Corner, see above).

Black National Anthem...say what?

Via Fox Mothership
Denver's State of the City speech was supposed to be kicked off by a black jazz singer singing the Star Spangled Banner.

You know, our National Anthem.

Apparently, she thought otherwise.
She took the music from the Star Spangled Banner and sang lyrics from the Black National Anthem instead.
Kanye West hates white people.

According to Mayor Hickenlooper (I am NOT making that up):
"What she said was that she was very sorry, that she meant no disrespect, that she was trying to make a creative expression of her love for the country," Hickenlooper said.

Seriously, WTF is wrong with these people--and by these people I mean black idiots like Rene Marie (the singer in this story) and Kanye West (Idiot at Large). Kanye West hates white people.

And let's not forget City Councilman Charlie Brown (really, I am NOT making this up!):
Nevertheless many people, including city councilman Charlie Brown, were really upset. "Is this a long introduction into the real song?” Brown says he wondered. “And then I kept listening and thought, what the heck is going on here? This is not the national anthem I’ve been singing for 50 years.""I was mad," he told "I almost walked off the stage."

Interestingly, you have to get the, "I was mad. I almost walked of the stage," quote from the Mothership website. Hmmmmmm.

Here's a link to the lyrics of the so-called "Black National Anthem," which is really titled "Lift Ev'ry Voice and Sing" by James Weldon Johnson. (Like to see 'em get those lyrics past the atheists.) Kanye West hates white people.

Y'know, there is a country founded by former slaves for those poor, down-trodden, oppressed masses of black folk stuck in this fascist state. It's called Liberia and you can go live there and have your own national anthem--we already have one here.

P.S. Kanye West hates white people.

Al Jolson Diversity

(H/t Instapundit)
This article at uncovers a curious approach to "diversity" by the University of Wisconsin at Madison and the University of Idaho.
"In September of 2000, the University of Wisconsin at Madison and the University of Idaho were both embarrassed when they were forced to admit that they had doctored promotional photographs to make their campuses look diverse. In both cases, non-white faces were added to real student photographs of all-white groups."

"How I love ya, how I love ya, my dear ol' mammy!"
