    Dear USC Dornsife Community,
    As we are met with images of both peaceful protest and violent conflict, we are confronted once again with the ugly reality that racial injustice remains a pernicious and deeply rooted problem in America. We as a nation still haven’t figured out how to affect the change that is badly needed.
    Emotions are raw. I don’t pretend to know what you are feeling right now, and there are no words I can offer that will fix what is happening. What I can say to you is this: USC Dornsife is here for you. As a community dedicated to truth and learning, everything we do is driven by a desire for understanding, for empathy, and human flourishing. We are a family that represents the shifting demographics of our city, state, and nation. And we are a family that has your back.
    The cruel and senseless death of George Floyd amplifies our collective responsibility to meet racism not with the force of brutality, but with decency and solidarity. I am encouraged by the diverse group of people who are coming together to grieve and protest — passionately and peacefully.
    As a USC Dornsife community, I promise you that we will continue to dedicate ourselves together to valuing different perspectives and achieving true diversity, equity, and inclusion. Because without this, we cannot, together, meet our full potential. We will continue to show the world that we truly live and act on our core values.
    In the coming days, we will be looking to our community of teachers and scholars to help us make sense of where we are, and to identify the most constructive paths forward.
    Please take care of yourselves, your family, and our extended community. If you or someone you care about needs additional help navigating this difficult period, please remember the resources below.
    Warmly,
    Amber D. Miller, Ph.D.
    Dean


    Odd to me that they never sent anything out about the Tyndall rapes.

    As with most of you, I suspect, my inbox is deluged with smarmy "we stand in the fight for social justice" crap from all sorts of corporations. I'm doing a lot of "unsubscribing" lately.

    Pernicious and deeply rooted?

    When the Left talks about dog whistles, this sounds like dog whistling from the left...

    No shit. Because nobody can commit to what exactly the problem is and what will fix it. All we get are slogans and bromides. And, oh yeah, fix it at the ballot box in November (because Orange Man Bad is the source of all our political and racial problems).

    Funny the BLM protesters aren't out there demanding SCOTUS rescind its invention of qualified immunity for law enforcement officers, or attacking the Fraternal Order of Police and other stalwart public employee unions that band together to protect their own.

    Nope, let's just stick with "the system" is racist.

    With this carefully crafted political statement the Dornsife dean helps to sustain the false narrative of 'institutionalized racism' in the police establishment. All the rhetoric from the Left is designed and calculated to demonize our American traditional social institutions. It's one big lie and all part of the larger plan to bring about Socialism. The immediate objective, of course, is to bring down President Trump who stands in their way.

    An email provider that had a bullshit filter along with the spam filter would dominate the market
