TOP SITES OF 2016

For 2016, based on SPLC and ADL research, we have determined the Daily Stormer is the most Anti-Semitic website in the world. Please contact their ISP and demand they shut down this pernicious hate website, before its articles propagate all over the Internet in other languages. Anti-Semitism has been on the fringe since its epic defeat in 1945, but is moving toward the mainstream in 2015 and 2016 with websites like DavidDuke.com, Stormfront.org, VNNForum.com and DailyStormer.com being cited regularly by mainstream media sources.

1. The Daily Stormer: http://www.dailystormer.com/ – One of the most popular alt-right hate news websites in the world. We were very successful in getting it blocked in several European countries.

2. Storm Front http://www.stormfront.org – the post popular hate forum in the world, blocked by Canada, and most countries in Europe. We were successful in getting this website blocked in Italy.

3. VNN Forum http://www.vnnforum.com – Alex Linder is very dangerous, he is in the process of turning the most Anti-Semitic books ever written into audio-books. Don’t let those audio-books get spread on YouTube or other media sharing websites, please report this one to the authorities. We were successful in getting this website blocked in Italy.

4. Holocaust Deprogramming Course https://holocaustdeprogrammingcourse.com/ – do whatever it takes to get these videos deleted of YouTube, turn the pressure up. This website is blocked in Canada and Europe. Please help us get these videos deleted from YouTube before the propagandists use www.ClipConverter.cc to download them and then re-upload it to other video sharing web sites. Tied for fourth is #5. Holocaust Handbooks http://holocausthandbooks.com/ which ranked as the fifth most anti-Semitic website in the world for 2015, make sure none of these books get listed on wikipedia.org and we hope it gets shut down before its books get any chance to propagate

5. Leo Frank Case and Trial Research Library http://www.leofrank.org – The kangaroo court trial of Atlanta B’nai B’rith President Mr. Leo Max Frank resulted in his conviction and galvanized B’nai B’rith to found Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith about a month or so later in October 1913. This horrifying research website by John de Nugent claims ADL was born in the blood of Mary Phagan and alleges the evidence against Leo Frank is what soundly convicted him, not Anti-Semitism. This hate website says it’s dedicated to undoing 100 years of “Jewish Supremacist” and anti-Gentile propaganda by making the original legal documents of the case available online. Please press everywhere to have countries ban it from the Internet. Please sign up to Wikipedia and lets try to remove any evidence that’s incriminating of Leo Frank on his article entry.

6. Sonnenrad TV – we were successful in getting TruTube.TV shut down after relentless attacks against them, but then its replacement sprung up to darken the internet with anti-Semitism. https://www.sonnenrad.tv/

7. OmniPhi Media – Using compelling graphics, stock footage and imagery to spread the specter of falsehood about Jews. – www.Omniphi.tv

#8. White Girl Bleed A lot http://whitegirlbleedalot.com (racist)

#9 Metapedia http://www.metapedia.org – the anti-Semitic alternative to Wikipedia, which haters claim is controlled by Jews.

#10.  www.SolarGeneral.com is so anti-Semitic that it needs to be listed several times.

Suppression Experts: The Most Effective Way Of Censoring Hate

Special thanks to a follower of http://www.theycant.com for recommendations. “They Can’t” has been at the forefront of getting videos deleted and censored off of many video sharing sites. More than 1,000 hate videos and counting have been shut down!!! The key is to get the hate videos deleted as quickly as possible, before people can make copies of them using many of the apps available and then post them on other video sharing sites. This web tool www.ClipConverter.cc is making it possible for haters to download videos and then re-upload them elsewhere.

Voluntary use of Race to Achieve Diversity in Postsecondary Education

The New York Times, and several other Associated Press publications, recently wrote about the Obama administration’s 10-page guideline that essentially “throws out” the Bush-era interpretation of a supreme court ruling that limited affirmative action in admissions. The new guideline provide Postsecondary Education with practical remedies to achieving diversity among their student population. To read the full New York Times article, click on the link below.

Published: December 2, 2011

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/12/03/education/us-urges-campus-creativity-to-gain-diversity.html


“The new guidelines issued by the Departments of Justice and Education replaced a 2008 document that essentially warned colleges and universities against considering race at all. Instead, the guidelines focus on the wiggle room in the court decisions involving the University of Michigan, suggesting that institutions use other criteria — students’ socioeconomic profiles, residential instability, the hardships they have overcome — that are often proxies for race. Schools could even grant preferences to students from certain schools selected for, among other things, their racial composition, the new document says.”

Whitehall Health Care of Ann Arbor Sued by EEOC for Religious Discrimination

U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission
Press Release
12/9/11

Nursing Home Fired Jehovah’s Witness Because of Her Need to Attend Religious Services, Federal Agency Charged

DETROIT — An Ann Arbor, Mich., nursing home violated federal law when it fired a Jehovah’s Witness based on her religion and need for a religious accommodation, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) charged in a lawsuit it filed today.

According to the EEOC’s suit (Case No. 2:11-cv-15407), filed in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, Whitehall Healthcare terminated the discrimination victim, a Jehovah’s Witness from Ann Arbor, from her job as a certified nursing assistant due to her need to have Wednesdays and Sundays off to attend religious services.

Such alleged conduct violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which protects employees against discrimination based on religion and requires employers to provide employees with reasonable accommodations to allow them to practice their sincerely held religious beliefs. The EEOC filed suit after first attempting to reach a pre-litigation settlement through its conciliation process. The EEOC is seeking an injunction to prohibit the company from engaging in this type of discrimination in the future, as well as monetary relief on the behalf of the victim.

“An employer has a legal duty to accommodate an employee’s sincerely held religious beliefs, plain and simple,” said Lauren Gibbs, trial attorney for the EEOC’s Detroit Field Office. “Firing someone for asserting that right violates federal law against religious discrimination and only makes a bad situation worse.”

The EEOC enforces federal laws prohibiting employment discrimination. Further information about the EEOC is available on the agency’s website at www.eeoc.gov.

OFCCP Announces Proposed Rules on Disability Law

News Release

OFCCP News Release: [12/08/2011]
Contact Name: Laura McGinnis or Mike Trupo
Phone Number: (202) 693-4653 or x6588
Release Number: 11-1614-NAT

US Labor Department seeks to improve job opportunities for Americans with disabilities by setting historic hiring goal for federal contractors and subcontractors

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Department of Labor is proposing a new rule that would require federal contractors and subcontractors to set a hiring goal of having 7 percent of their workforces be people with disabilities, among other requirements. The department’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs invites public comment on this proposal, which will be published in the Dec. 9 edition of the Federal Register.

OFCCP’s proposed rule would strengthen the affirmative action requirements established in Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 obligating federal contractors and subcontractors to ensure equal employment opportunities for qualified workers with disabilities. The proposed regulatory changes detail specific actions contractors must take in the areas of recruitment, training, record keeping and policy dissemination — similar to those that have long been required to promote workplace equality for women and minorities. In addition, the rule would clarify OFCCP’s expectations for contractors by providing specific guidance on how to comply with the law.

“This proposed rule represents one of the most significant advances in protecting the civil rights of workers with disabilities since the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act,” said Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis. “President Obama has demonstrated a commitment to people with disabilities. This proposed rule would help federal contractors better fulfill their legal responsibility to hire qualified workers with disabilities.”

Although Section 503 regulations have been in place for decades, the current unemployment rate for people with disabilities is 13 percent, 1 1/2 times the rate of those without disabilities. Even more discouraging, data published last week by the department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics show stark disparities facing working-age individuals with disabilities, with 79.2 percent outside the labor force altogether, compared to 30.5 percent of those without disabilities.

“For nearly 40 years, the rules have said that contractors simply need to make a ‘good faith’ effort to recruit and hire people with disabilities. Clearly, that’s not working,” said OFCCP Director Patricia A. Shiu. “Our proposal would define specific goals, require real accountability and provide the clearest possible guidance for employers seeking to comply with the law. What gets measured gets done. And we’re in the business of getting things done.”

Establishing a 7 percent hiring goal for the employment of individuals with disabilities would be a tool for contractors to measure the effectiveness of their affirmative action efforts and thereby inform their decision-making. The proposed rule also would enhance data collection and record-keeping requirements — including for documentation and processing of requests for reasonable accommodation — in order to improve accountability. Additionally, it would ensure annual self-reviews of employers’ recruitment and outreach efforts, and add a new requirement for contractors to list job openings to increase their pools of qualified applicants.

To read the notice of proposed rulemaking or submit a comment, visit the federal e-rulemaking portal at http://www.regulations.gov. Comments also can be submitted by mail to Debra Carr, Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs, U.S. Department of Labor, Room C-3325, 200 Constitution Ave. NW, Washington, D.C. 20210. All comments must be received by Feb. 7, 2012, and should include identification number (RIN) 1250-AA02.

In addition to Section 503, OFCCP enforces Executive Order 11246 and the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974. As amended, these three laws require those who do business with the federal government, both contractors and subcontractors, to follow the fair and reasonable standard that they take affirmative action and not discriminate in employment on the basis of sex, race, color, religion, national origin, disability or status as a protected veteran. For general information, call OFCCP’s toll-free helpline at 800-397-6251 or visit its website at http://www.dol.gov/ofccp/.

Letter from OFCCP Director on Proposed Disability Regs

U.S. Department of LaborDecember 9, 2011

Dear Friends:

Today we made history at the Department of Labor. This morning, OFCCP proposed a new rule to strengthen the affirmative action obligations of federal contractors and subcontractors to improve job opportunities for people with disabilities.

Our proposed rule would revise and update Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, giving millions of Americans with disabilities a better and fairer shot at competing for jobs. The proposal also aims to give businesses greater clarity on what is expected of them, leveling the playing field so that employers who play by the rules don’t have to compete at a disadvantage against those who shirk their legal responsibilities.

The rule we are proposing is historic: businesses with at least 50 employees and $50,000 or more in government contracts would be required to set a hiring goal of 7 percent for workers with disabilities.

That’s never been done before.

I believe that what gets measured gets done. When four out of every five working-age individuals with a disability are outside the labor force, we have serious work to do. This proposed rule is a concrete step we can take to help close that gap, to ensure that discouraged workers in the disability community have a reason to believe they too can have meaningful opportunities to work.

The concept of setting a goal is not new. A goal is yardstick for employers to assess how they’re doing and a tool to help us better evaluate their efforts. Our proposal would require employers to take specific actions with respect to recruitment, training, record-keeping and the dissemination of policies – actions similar to those which have long been required to promote equal opportunity in the workplace for women and minorities.

I invite you to read our proposal and submit comments on how we can make it better. Throughout this rulemaking process, we have sought as much input as possible from workers, employers, advocates, experts, scholars and the public at-large. Last year, we published an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking – the government equivalent of a national brainstorming session – to get ideas on what this rule should look like. The input we received on the ANPRM and in stakeholder and town hall meetings throughout the country helped shape the rule we put before you now.

Our proposed rule is open for public comment from now until February 7, 2012. My staff and I will read, review and consider every comment we receive. That is part of the public trust we hold at the Department of Labor.

Now we need you to please look over our proposal and give us your honest and constructive feedback. Go to http://www.dol.gov/ofccp/503 to read and comment on the rule. There, you will also find a short summary of the proposed rule, a fact sheet you can print and share, answers to frequently asked questions and other useful materials.

Today we made history. Now we ask you to help us make possibility.

Many thanks,

Patricia A. Shiu

Census 2010: December Update to Census / SOC Crosswalk File

Three (3) more changes to the crosswalk table that was sent with the “Sixth Informal Update on Status of ACS 2006-2010 Special EEO File.”

Table of Changes to Census/SOC Crosswalk (PDF)
Complete (Revised) Census/SOC Crosswalk (PDF)

The April 4, 2011 version of the Census to SOC to OPM and EEO job codes is the base document from which changes are being made This version of the table incorporates all changes to date and is not expected to be revised again until the final version is released in December 2012. The changes made to this crosswalk table were the result of additional discussions among staff from Census, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, EEOC and other individuals or organizations. The three changes were in the assignment of Census/SOC occupations into the EEO-1 (9) and EEO (14) categories, as can be seen in the attached document on changes.

Also, the number of detailed Census occupations contained in this table is the maximum that could be released by Census. However, due to Census rules protecting confidentiality, the number of occupations may have to be reduced. As with previous versions of the Special EEO File, the reduction will achieved by combining smaller occupations with similar categories so that confidentiality will not be compromised.

American Association for Affirmative Action Commends the Obama Administration for Supporting Equal Opportunity and Diversity

American Association for Affirmative Action Commends the Obama Administration for Supporting Equal Opportunity and Diversity in Education Programs

Association of Equal Opportunity Professionals Applauds the Departments of Education and Justice for Issuing Guidance that Supports Educational Opportunities for All Students

For Immediate Release
December 5, 2011
Contact:

Shirley J. Wilcher, Executive Director
202-349-9855; 240-893-9475

Washington, DC, December 5, 2011 – The American Association for Affirmative Action (AAAA), an organization of more than one thousand equal opportunity, affirmative action and diversity professionals and institutions highly commends the Obama Administration for issuing guidance that recognizes the “benefits that flow from achieving a diverse student body.” Citing the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2003 decisions in Gratz and Grutter v. Bollinger the US Departments of Education and Justice issued a joint guidance document that explains what colleges and universities can lawfully do to promote a diverse student body. In so doing, the Obama Administration has stated unequivocally that educational institutions can voluntarily consider race among other factors to promote student body diversity.

“What the Departments of Education and Justice have done is to correctly interpret the Supreme Court’s decisions and to allay any concerns that colleges and universities may have had that their efforts to achieve a diverse student body were inconsistent with the law,” said AAAA President Gregory T. Chambers. “The Administration rightly acknowledged that programs to promote access, equity and diversity benefit all students and assist those who have been historically disadvantaged to compete in the global marketplace,” Chambers added.

OCR and Justice acknowledged the legal necessity of seeking race-neutral alternatives unless they are unworkable and of using a holistic and individual assessment of the student, with race as one of many factors. Institutions can also use socio-economic status, geography, a history of hardships, or percentage plans as in the State of Texas, as additional considerations. What is significant is that the Administration has encouraged recruitment to broaden the pool of qualified applicants, partnerships with Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUS) and “feeder schools” that are identifiable based on their demographics. This expands upon the range of schools that selective colleges and universities may currently use in their admissions considerations; schools that heretofore (e.g. college prep schools) may have benefited only students who were economically or racially advantaged.

Founded in 1974, the American Association for Affirmative Action (AAAA) is a national not-for-profit association of professionals working in the areas of affirmative action, equal opportunity, and diversity. We assist our members to be more successful and productive in their careers. We also promote understanding and advocacy of affirmative action to enhance access, equity and diversity in employment, economic and educational opportunities.
