Racism and Comedy, Or; How to Make a Point
By: Barry Belmont

How is the “debate” about the supposedly “racist” skit done by a comedy troupe here in Reno even still an issue? No person involved is a racist. It seems that no person involved has been offended. No one cares. This. Shouldn’t. Be. An. Issue. But it seems to be and to prove a point I’m going [...]

Racist Comedy at UNR…
By: Barry Belmont

No, no, we’re not talking about the ever-present farce that are diversity initiatives, we’re talking about a recent comedy skit performed for the ASUN Leadership conference.

By: Barry Belmont

Looking back on the brief experience I had with ASUN, I can’t help but laugh when the student officers and bureaucrats alike would have entire meetings trying to determine the reasons why people on campus do not become more involved with their affairs. Ignore for a moment their tarnished superiority complex or why the Students [...]

Diversity as Viewed by a Sample of UNR
By: Barry Belmont

This is not a joke. Try, as an academic exercise, to see why we think diversity initiatives are both counterproductive and a contemporary form of racism/xenophobia/prejudice of all kind. It tries to teach that You + I > Them for our “enlightened” thinking. This is straight from the Sagebrush whose recent issue we will probably [...]

Diversity Initiatives: A Cancerous Scourge on Society and Campus
By: John Russell

An undeniable premise in programs and laws which are designed to support a class of people differently than that of another is this: “You are too weak to support yourself, so let me help you help yourself.” Such programs imply that those of diversity (color, creed, orientation, ethnicity, sex, etc) are too weak to handle [...]
