Black Female Apple Diversity Chief Forced Out After Saying White Men Can Also Be ‘Diverse’

An ominous message has been sent to women of color by Apple. Get with the program or get out.

Zerohedge

Silicon Valley’s disdain for its mostly white, mostly male tech workforce has reached absurd new heights.

The New York Post [4] is reporting that, after just six months on the job, Apple Diversity Chief Denise Young Smith, who was named vice president of diversity and inclusion in May, has resigned her post after making a “controversial” comment last month during a summit in Bogota, Colombia.

What was Young’s crime? She insinuated that “diversity” can still exist among a group of white men because of their different life experiences.

“There can be 12 white, blue-eyed, blond men in a room and they’re going to be diverse too because they’re going to bring a different life experience and life perspective to the conversation,” the inaugural diversity chief said.

DENISE YOUNG SMITH. SHE TOLD AN UNWANTED TRUTH.

“Diversity is the human experience,” she said, according to Quartz. “I get a little bit frustrated when diversity or the term diversity is tagged to the people of color, or the women, or the LGBT.”

That’s right: Young, who is – for the record – a black woman, has been forced out of Apple because her views on diversity were too inclusive.

As the Post pointed out, Young’s comments appeared to defend Apple’s overwhelmingly white and male leadership at a time when the company’s makeup is markedly uneven. This begs the question: What, exactly, was she defending them from?

Young, a 20-year Apple veteran who previously served as the company’s head of worldwide human resources (a senior level position), was later forced to apologize for her remarks, telling Apple staff that her comments “were not representative of how I think about diversity or how Apple sees it.”

“For that, I’m sorry,” she said in an email. “More importantly, I want to assure you Apple’s view and our dedication to diversity has not changed.”

“We deeply believe that diversity drives innovation,” an Apple spokesman told TechCrunch in a statement. “We’re thrilled to welcome an accomplished leader like Christie Smith to help us continue the progress we’ve made toward a more diverse workplace.”

In 2017, only 3 percent of Apple’s leaders were black, and women held just 23 percent of tech jobs, according to Fortune. Female leadership stood at 29 percent, Apple said.

“Meaningful change takes time,” the company said in its diversity report. “We’re proud of our accomplishments, but we have much more work to do.”

Smith will leave the company at the end of the year. Taking over as VP of inclusion and diversity will be Christie Smith, who spent 17 years as a principal at Deloitte.

She is also a white woman.

Like the writer at Zerohedge said, the word “absurd” best explains this insanity. Denise Young Smith simply wasn’t anti-white and that wasn’t good enough for Apple.

Out of curiosity I looked up a photo of Miss Smith’s replacement, “white” Christie Smith. OK, is she Jewish or not? Lesbian or normal?

Assistant Police Chief Shares “Racist” Facebook Meme, Resigns Amid Backlash

OFFENDED SOME PEOPLE.

That meme above offended some, but you can bet that others laughed because they found it to be funny.

Facebook is a career killer, for sure. People must learn not to be stupid on social media, which leaves a digital fingerprint.

Atlanta Black Star

An assistant police chief in Estherwood, La., has resigned from his position after sharing an outwardly racist and threatening meme on his Facebook page.

Wayne Welsh of the Estherwood Police Department shared a post Sunday, July 30, showing an image of a white woman holding a young child’s head underwater in a bathtub with the caption, “When’s your daughter’s first crush is a little Negro boy.”

The image sparked immediate backlash, as social media users quickly snapped screenshots of the law enforcement officer’s post and shared it across the internet. Local station KATC initially declined to release Welsh’s identity, but internet users managed to snag it before his Facebook page was made private.

Estherwood’s police chief Ernest Villejoin said he was dumbfounded when he saw the offensive post.

“When I found out about it, I couldn’t believe I had to call him,” Villejoin told news station KADN earlier this week. “I called him at work and asked him what the hell is going on?”

“He’d done it,” the police chief added. “He said it and he realized what he had done after he done it and he deleted it — but it was too late.”

Villejoin later confirmed to The Huffington Post that Welsh had stepped down from his position, noting that “the situation had been taken care of.”

The Louisiana man has since issued an apology, yet made it clear he doesn’t believe he did anything to warrant his resignation.

“I just don’t feel like I should have to resign on this because there is not a policy saying I can’t do this on Facebook,” he told KADN. “To me, I’m not racist, and I knew it wasn’t. It was picture that everybody shared and you can get on anybody’s [Facebook] and still see it. It’s still there, but I was wrong for sharing it for being a police officer.”

Welsh also took to his Facebook page to say, “I posted something on Facebook that made a lot of people mad/ Well, I’m sorry for what happen. Ya have a blessed day.”

This isn’t the assistant police chief’s first time posting offensive content, however. A social media user pulled up a post from Welsh’s page earlier this year that made disparaging remarks about Muslims in burqas.

KATC reported that Estherwood’s city council decided this week that it would not address Welsh’s controversial post, arguing that city leaders have no authority over the local police department.

To reiterate what I believe would be a fair policy in keeping with American tradition and freedom of speech: No one should be fired or have to resign for jokes or other nonthreatening political statements.

Trump Skips Diversity Nonsense, Appoints Predominantly White Male Judges

DONALD TRUMP WITH HIS SUPREME COURT NOMINEE NEAL GORSUCH.

White people may be impatient with Trump’s failure to have built the wall already or with his failure to get a rebellious Congress to repeal Obamacare, but when it comes to judges, Trump is allegedly getting white males in place to rule for the next generation.

I say allegedly because this AP analysis does not mention Jewish judges. I hope all these white males are actually Euro-Americans.

Excerpt from Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is nominating white men to America’s federal courts at a rate not seen in nearly 30 years, threatening to reverse a slow transformation toward a judiciary that more closely reflects the nation’s diversity.

So far, 91 percent of Trump’s nominees are white, and 81 percent are male, an Associated Press analysis has found. Three of every four are white men, with few African-Americans and Hispanics in the mix. The last president to nominate a similarly homogenous group was George H.W. Bush.

Walmart Shooting Leaves Three Dead, White Man on the Run, and Twitter Demanding Gun Control

Al-Jazeera

At least three people have been killed after a shooting near a Walmart store in the US state of Colorado, police sources said.

The shooting in the Denver suburb of Thornton took place on Wednesday evening and left three people dead including two men who were killed at the scene, and a woman who died later at a hospital after being transported away from the scene by emergency services.

Thornton police said the incident was not being currently treated as “an active shooter” situation, the description normally given to mass shooting events in the US.

Investigators were reviewing security footage and interviewing witnesses, the department said on its Twitter page.

No suspect is currently in custody but police did release pictures of a man they described as a “person of interest” and a car he is believed to have driven.

Local news outlet, the Denver Post, reported that the sound of gunshots sent people running in fear for their lives at the Walmart store.

It also said that witnesses saw someone being arrested but it is not clear if that arrest was connected to the shooting.

Gun crime is a regular occurrence in the US and on average 12,000 die of homicidesinvolving a firearm in the country each year.

Wednesday’s shooting comes nearly a month after Stephen Paddock allegedly shot and killed 58 people and injured hundreds more at country music festival in Las Vegas, Nevada, renewing calls for stricter gun control in the US.

American civilians own more guns per person than civilians in any other country in the world.

Gun rights advocates argue the right to bear arms is enshrined in the country’s Second Amendment.

But many opponents see a need for universal background checks, tougher restrictions on the types of guns that can be bought and the tightening loopholes for gun ownership, among other reforms.

I could easily refute all these liberal Tweets, but it’s not worth my time to do so. I’m certain you can see the flawed thinking and the anti-white male mindset here:

Suspicious: Couple with Henderson ties die in crash after surviving Las Vegas shooting

This story was at the top of the Las Vegas Review-Journal website Sunday evening. It’s the latest suspicious death involving a survivor of the Las Vegas massacre.

A redditor has put together a short post that identifies at least four suspicious deaths related to the mass shooting.

Las Vegas Review Journal

They couldn’t live without each other.

When Dennis Carver realized the loud cracks weren’t fireworks but instead rapid gunfire, he jumped on top of his wife, Lorraine Carver, to shield her from the bullets.

“That’s just the kind of love they had for each other,” Brooke Carver, the couple’s oldest daughter, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “Their love was selfless.”

Minutes earlier, the couple had been line dancing and singing along to country performer Jason Aldean at the Route 91 Harvest music festival on Oct. 1.

It was during the third or fourth lull in gunfire when the two got up, hand in hand, and started running. They ran for their lives and didn’t stop until they got out uninjured, their daughter said.

Two days after the shooting attack, the couple, who lived in Henderson part time and owned a plumbing company, returned to their Riverside County home in California.

They would go on to spend the next two weeks more in love than ever with each other and with life.

“After the shooting, they heard from all of the people they cared about most. They were so happy,” said Brooke, 20. “The last two weeks of their lives were really just spent living in the moment.”

But on the night of Oct. 16, the couple’s younger daughter, 16-year-old Madison Carver, heard a loud bang outside her window. When she ran down the street and rounded the corner, a familiar vehicle engulfed in flames came into view. Dennis, 52, and Lorraine, 53, had died together less than half a mile from their home.

According to the Riverside County Fire Department, their vehicle crashed into a metal gate outside their community at 10:50 p.m. on the 20000 block of Avenida De Arboles. It took firefighters nearly an hour to completely put out the fire, the department said in a statement.

‘Little pieces of them’
Where others see a tragedy, the couple’s daughters see a show of love.

If they had to lose both their parents at the same time, they said they’re thankful it happened so close to the time of the Las Vegas massacre.

“We were so relieved when they got out of the shooting alive,” Brooke said. “But I also think we’ve been given little pieces of them that we would’ve never gotten if the shooting hadn’t happened right before they died.”

Their father was strong and independent and always put the people he loved first. Their mother was humble and generous and appreciated the simple things in life — like a hearty laugh or a colorful flower arrangement.

Three days after the shooting, Brooke said she was on the phone with her father. They asked about each other’s days and their plans for the weekend.

“Hey, you think I should get roses or different flowers for your mom?” her dad asked her.

There was no special occasion — no birthday, no anniversary.

“He just wanted to give my mom a reason to smile after the shooting,” she said. “I swear they were more in love those two weeks than the last 20 years.”

There’s a lot of treacle in this article designed to deflect attention away from the unbelievable circumstances under which this couple died.

The mysteries, contradictions, and suspicious behavior associated with the Las Vegas massacre are just too much to be coincidence.

So, what’s going on?

White Man’s Confession: “I was a racist cop.”

A white male ex-cop has turned social justice warrior and is telling his story.

There’s really nothing dramatic in his tale. He doesn’t like the way police work is done. The most dramtic event in his story is when a cop tells a dying Negro injured in a car wreck that he’s dying, while using the term “Nigger.”

Thee are no beatings or murders of black thugs that he recounts. HIs is a story of a weak-minded white man who picked the wrong line of work.

Huffington Post

[trigger warning: racial slurs and offensive language]

I was a racist cop.

Years ago, I was helping a supervisor at a single-car crash. A black man collided head-on into a concrete divider, and died at the scene. I was detouring the ensnarled traffic when my corporal, who had been alongside the victim, shared an update.

“When I got here he was alive, but fading. His eyes were opening and closing real slow and I could feel his pulse slowing down.” He paused, and with the smoothness of a perfectly timed punch line, the corporal said “So, I whispered in his ear, ‘Today is the day you die, nigger.’”

I stood horrified.

Then, I did nothing.

Silence is the culture of many police departments. In my second year as a cop ― a career that would span more than a decade across three states ― I was taught the ramifications of speaking out. After a sergeant stole from an impounded car, another whistleblower and I reported him up the chain of command. Within days, I was fired. It was just before Christmas; young, a child on the way, and now my fledgling career tarnished. I received the message loud and clear: Do not kneel.

Our ex-white cop is referring to Colin Kaepernick’s kneeling protests. He’s using the term symbolically.

Stephen Paddock’s Brother Arrested for Child Porn, Alleged Shooter’s Hard Drive Missing

BRUCE PADDOCK. ALLEGED VEGAS SHOOTER’S BROTHER.

Every computer built in the last 10 years can be accessed remotely in order to plant child porn (or other illegal material) on it via Intel Core Vpro.

Stephen Paddock’s brother must know something that the feds don’t want us to know. If the child porn wasn’t planted on his computer then Stephen Paddock must have been importing child sex slaves from the Philippines with the help of his Flip girlfriend. I hear that the (((power elites))) are strongly into pedophilia.

Likewise, Stephen Paddock’s hard drive must have something on it that would implicate the Deep State’s power elites in human trafficking or gun running.

You don’t have to be a conspiracy theorist to smell something fishy.

Zerohedge

The story of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock’s family just keeps getting weirder.

The Los Angeles Times [4] is reporting one of Paddock’s estranged younger brothers, Bruce Paddock, has been detained in North Hollywood on suspicion of crimes related to child pornography. Paddock, 58, was taken into custody Wednesday morning.

The LAPD said a man was detained in the 5300 block of Laurel Canyon Boulevard on suspicion of crimes related to child pornography. However the LAPD would not reveal the name of the man. The LAPD confirmed the investigation into Bruce Paddock predates the Las Vegas shooting and the two incidents are not connected.

Police said they began investigating Paddock after “evidence was discovered” in a business he was squatting in after he was was evicted from the building.

Police added that Paddock “could not be located” for some time after the investigation began, as he was transient following his eviction. They released Paddock’s mugshot “in case there may be victims of unreported incidents.” His bail was set at $60,000.

ALLEGED SHOOTER STEPHEN PADDOCK.

The Paddocks’ father, Benjamin Paddock, was famously revealed to be a former bank robber and con man who once made the FBI’s “most wanted” list. Paddock’s family has mostly avoided the media, though his youngest brother, Eric, spoke out when reporters descended on his Florida home in the days following the shooting. Eric Paddock said he wasn’t close with most of his brothers, but had once been involved in a lucrative real estate venture with Stephen. He said he was shocked to learn that his brother had been the shooter, and said his brother gave no indication that he might carry out such an atrocious act.

The 64-year-old Stephen Paddock opened fire on a Las Vegas crowd of 20,000 people attending a country music festival on Oct. 1. Paddock killed 60 people, including himself, in the meticulously planned attack.

Meanwhile, police have repeatedly changed their timeline for the shooting, and MGM Resorts, the owner of the Mandalay Bay hotel, has taken efforts to stop more information about the timeline of events from leaking to the public, for fear it could face lawsuits from Paddock’s victims.

* *

Separately, as the search for a motive behind the deadliest mass shooting in US history appears to have hit a wall – and while the multiple changes in the timeline of events have raised questions about the effectiveness of the initial response – ABC [7]News reports that the laptop computer recovered from Paddock’s room was missing its hard drive, depriving investigators of a potential key source of information into Paddock’s frame of mind at the time of the shooting.

Paddock is believed to have removed the hard drive before fatally shooting himself, and the missing device has not yet been recovered.

Investigators digging into Paddock’s background also learned he purchased software designed to erase files from a hard drive, but without the hard drive to examine, it is impossible to know if he ever used the software. Searches of Paddock’s car and homes turned up an arsenal of guns and explosive materials – but data gleaned from his computers has provided precious little for investigators to go on.

He is not the first mass shooter to destroy or hide digital clues, ABC noted.

In 2007, Virginia Tech shooter Cho Seung Hui removed the hard drive of his computer and disposed of his cell phone shortly before the massacre. They were never recovered.

The 2008 Northern Illinois shooter, Steven Kazmierczak, removed the SIM card from his phone and the hard drive from his laptop, and neither was recovered.

In 2012, Sandy Hook shooter Adam Lanza removed the hard drive from his computer and smashed it with a hammer or screwdriver.

Paddock spent months assembling the arsenal in a way that didn’t attract the attention of authorities. Authorities are examining every aspect of Paddock’s life — from his family, friends and associates to his travel patterns, health and finances. A sudden deterioration in his finances has been ruled out as a motive, as one source told ABC [7]that Paddock had settled debts he had with casinos shortly before the attack.

Other mass murders have left behind clues as to their motives – who can forget the unabomber’s manifesto? Paddock, however, left behind no such writings or evidence.

Chad Nishimura, the valet who parked Paddock’s car at Mandalay Bay, was allegedly murdered. I can’t vouch for that strange development in the story. Less than 10 minutes. Lots of cursing.
