    I'll kick it off with this crackerjack...

    The good old USA can beat us at it any day,

    "Congress allocated nearly $200 billion in COVID-19 relief funds for K-12 schools over the past year. While this money was intended to help reopen schools and mitigate learning loss, President Joe Biden’s Department of Education is encouraging school districts to spend some of it on a different purpose: providing “free, antiracist therapy for white educators”.

    The American Rescue Plan requires districts to reserve 20% of funds for “evidence-based” interventions that “respond to students’ academic, social and emotional needs” – a very sensible charge. But the devil is in the definition, and Team Biden’s guidance booklet for spending ARP funds suggests that students’ social and emotional needs include the disruption of “whiteness” and the propagation of critical race theory."

    I get this feeling being white, male and over a certain age makes us the target of "hate crime" sinkov.

    Where can I go to make a complaint?

    Back in February, the Ministry of Defence recruited a new Diversity Director. Now that she has got her feet under the table, Samantha de Forges is launching a probe into gender in the armed forces and hoping find out whether the various ranks are sufficiently inclusive and, if necessary, rebrand them. According to the Express, the move has prompted a bit of a backlash.

    "Samantha de Forges was appointed Director of Diversity and Inclusion in February and will lead a review into military titles and determine which ranks do not offer enough inclusivity. An assessment is set to be conducted into positions officials believe are outdated and other titles will be rebranded if they cannot be gender-neutral, defence sources say.

    The head of the Royal Navy, Lord Ian West, last week described demands to change ranks as “ultra, ultra-woke”.

    The expected overhaul of military titles has triggered a backlash from a number of Britons on social media, including a former Brexit Party MEP.

    In a post on Twitter, Christina Jordan wrote: “When defending our country, diversity matters.” Her post was accompanied by a rolling eyes emoji.

    Several users agreed with the former MEP and in response one user said: “Disgusting. The armed forces don’t need a diversity chief. More woke rubbish.”

    Another said: “Where are they finding these woke lunatics.”

    Others shared their opposition to the plans and hit out at the huge salary being offered – which is higher than that of a major, colonel or brigadier.

    A user said: “I would think the MoD could think of better things to do with 110,000 a year.”

    "Spectators at the Tokyo Olympics could be ejected if they break rules by cheering or applauding."
