White Privilege Conference Opens In Kansas City April 27-30White Privilege Conference Opens In Kansas City April 27-30

A lthough the term “white privilege” has been around for quite some time, in the last few years become part of the larger American lexicon. Predictably, it makes some of its beneficiaries (i.e., white folks) uncomfortable.

And yet, this is why the annual conference that study privilege and ways to dismantle it is so important. Some 2,500 people—including college and high school students, teachers, university faculty, social activists, counselors, clergy and business people—gathered for the 17th annual conference in Philadelphia a year ago.

The event was founded by Eddie Moore Jr. , who now leads The Privilege Institute in Colorado. This year for the first time, the conference heads to Kansas City, Missouri – and will meet from April 27 to 30.

According to its website, the conference “examines challenging concepts of privilege and oppression” to build strategies “toward a more equitable world.”

Its flyer reads:  “Our strategy in addressing issues of inequality involves bringing together a consummate network of both national and regional lead learners and practitioners to work and learn from each other. This synergistic collaboration produces both paradigm shifts and personal action. As our evaluations confirm, the WPC provides
an opportunity for participants to discuss how white privilege, white supremacy, and oppression affects daily life while gaining strategies for addressing issues of privilege and oppression and advancing social and economic justice .”

Keynote speakers for this year include Amer F. Ahmed, Ed.D, Director of Intercultural Teaching (DIT) and Faculty Development at University of Massachusetts Amherst; Jacqueline Keeler , Co-Founder of Eradicating Offensive Native Mascotry and author and pundit Michael Eric Dyson.

Registration cost for the conference ranges from $230 for students to $400 for individuals for the full session, and $100 to $175 for single days.

Trump’s Daughter Booed At Event In Germany

Trump’s Daughter Booed At Event In GermanyTrump’s Daughter Booed At Event In Germany

F irst Daughter Ivanka Trump received an earful from an audience of female entrepreneurs in Berlin, Germany on Tuesday, Politico reports.

Trump was a panelist on the W20 Summit at the invitation of German Chancellor Angela Merkel . The audience at the international conference for women booed and hissed Trump when she praised her father, President Donald Trump , as an advocate of women in the workplace and “a tremendous champion of supporting families and enabling them to thrive.”

She made that statement despite his derogatory comments about women during the presidential campaign, as well as a dozen women stepping forward to accuse the president of sexual misconduct.

When pressed on the issue by the moderator, Trump blamed the media, which prompted laughter from the audience.

There was also confusion and curiosity about Trump’s role in her father’s administration, Politico reported.

Trump was invited to the conference as a senior White House official, yet she defended her father as a “loyal daughter,” the outlet said.

Bill Cosby’s Youngest Daughter Defends Her Dad: ‘He Is Not Abusive, Violent Or A Rapist’

Bill Cosby’s Youngest Daughter Defends Her Dad: ‘He Is Not Abusive, Violent Or A Rapist’Bill Cosby’s Youngest Daughter Defends Her Dad: ‘He Is Not Abusive, Violent Or A Rapist’

E vin Cosby, the youngest of Bill Cosby ’s children, unexpectedly dropped a heartfelt defense of her father on his Facebook page early Wednesday morning.

I know that my father loves me, loves my sisters and my mother. He loves and respects women. He is not abusive, violent or a rapist, ” Evin Cosby, 40, wrote.

“The public persecution of my dad, my kids’ grandfather, and the cruelty of the media and those who speak out branding my father a “rapist” without ever knowing the truth and who shame our family and our friends for defending my dad, makes all of this so much worse for my family and children ,” she writes.

Later she adds, “ Sure, like many celebrities tempted by opportunity, he had his affairs, but that was between him and my mother. They have worked through it and moved on, and I am glad they did for them and for our family.”

Evin Cosby makes mention of her brother Ennis’ 1997 murder and says that “her family’s pain has been a trigger for people to seize upon us harder.”

She ends the missive by saying that her family helped her, a single mom, raise her children, and teaches them family values. And that the allegations are old news.

“The harsh and hurtful accusations of things that supposedly happened 40 or 50 years ago, before I was born, in another lifetime, and that have been carelessly repeated as truth without allowing my dad to defend himself and without requiring proof, has punished not just my dad but every one of us ,” she wrote.

Bill Cosby, 79, has been accused by more than 50 women of sexual abuse and harassment spanning more than four decades.

He is set to go to trial in June over one of the allegations brought by former Temple University employee Andrea Constand.

Baltimore’s 2017 Murder Rate Surpasses 100 Before End Of April

Baltimore’s 2017 Murder Rate Surpasses 100 Before End Of AprilBaltimore’s 2017 Murder Rate Surpasses 100 Before End Of April

B altimore officials recorded the 101st homicide this year on Monday, marking the first time since 1998 that the city reached that grim milestone before the end of April, ABC News reports.

The 2017 murder rate is 34 percent higher than the same time last year, according the Baltimore Sun .

“We have to engage this community or it’s going to continue to be a bloodbath,” the Rev.  Donte Hickman , pastor of the Southern Baptist Church, told the Sun.

A surge of violence began after the 2015 death of Freddie Gray in police custody, which sparked riots in the city.

“We’re continuing to do everything we can to impact that number so it doesn’t continue to grow,” a Baltimore Police Department spokesman told The Sun.
