A law that requires materials and services funded using taxpayer dollars to be provided in English. Laws such as these have only been passed in areas where the vast majority of people speak English, and have for centuries.

Liberals view this as radical and racist because it supports the needs of one group over another. Liberals, as always, are free to fund it by themselves if they feel so strongly about it. But then that goes against the central tenet of these left-leaners: "We just come up with the moral compass, we shouldn't have to pay for it."
Juanita has been living illegally in Texas for 10 years and wants to send her kids to public schools. Unfortunately, they're English only and she doesn't want to learn English or teach them English at home, so she and her friends demand the schools hire translators to teach their kids in Spanish. This, of course, neglects the Chinese, etc. Soon, our country will be a place where everyone can learn but noone can understand each other.

A strategy to silence political opponents by attempting to destroy their economic prosperity. POLTER is an acronym for "Political Offense Leads To Economic Revenge".

POLTER is a strategy often used by Highly Offendable Groups (HOGS) when facts do not favor their most cherished beliefs. Historically, fear and intimidation have been just as successful, if not more, than logic and debate in silencing opponents, not to mention quicker and more expedient (for example, the ignorant are rarely swayed by logic, but fear is universal).
A former president of Harvard once suggested that genetics might be responsible for the disparity between men and women in the highest positions of math and science. It was merely a suggestion, but unfortunately one that was heretical to feminist groups. Subsequently, they decided to POLTER him, spearheading a campaign to get him fired and stigmatized by the media so that his next employment opportunity would be at least less prestigious and profitable than the current one.

A slang term for the degree of risk white employers take when hiring black employees. It was coined in honor of a black female contestant on a reality show called "The Apprentice" who had very little value as an employee and an infamous ability to irritate all those around her. She wore her race and gender on her sleeve, using them to bait or bash other contestants on the show. When "fired" from the show, she immediately accused the cast members of calling her a "nigger" and of racial antagonism during the show. She received a lot of media attention, as those who play the race card usually do, and despite her lack of credibility (e.g. she *forgot* who it was that called her a "nigger", whether or not anyone else was around, when it happened, and why the cameras didn't catch it), she was invited back to the show. Thus demonstrating that there is a penalty for those called a racist, but not for those who call others a racist and are proven to be liars.

Companies fear hiring people like Omorosa. People who sell themselves very strongly, display up-front confidence and have a suitable resume, yet in the end offer no value to the company as an employee, create an environment of conflict and hatred among other employees, and is a walking time bomb waiting to scream "racism" or "sexism" the moment something doesn't go their way (e.g. denied a raise, promotion, or is fired).

The Omorosa factor is a value that ranges from zero (no risk) to one (the employee is actually Omorosa herself). It is used to multiply another value called the O-cost, which is typically a fixed percentage of the company's value. This is amount that will normally be sued for. Multiplying the two gives a company an idea of how much risk they are taking on by hiring the employee.
Subordinate: "Sir, management wants to increase diversity in our department. Perhaps we should give extra weight to minority applicants."
Manager: "Agreed. We can kill two birds with one stone by hiring a black woman, that way we get gender and race at the same time. Do we have any that are handicapped or veterans as well? That would be the best!"
Subordinate: "No, sir, just this one black woman is on the list: Jawanda. She seems fairly qualified."
Manager: "Invite her in."
Jawanda: "I am a strong, black woman from the Bronx and I will kick ass in this white male-dominated field."
Manager: "Sorry, your Omorosa factor is too high. Next..."

Awfully Corrupt Officials for Registring Negroes (ACORN) is yet another corrupt political group hiding under the guise of helping the poor and advancing civil rights.
ACORN might do at least a little good despite their repeated offenses at advising people on how to effectively commit tax fraud and defrauding people to believe they are simply registering voters when they are really aiming to register democratic voters. But isn't it *truly* a mark of shame for the democrats when they benefit so extremely disproportionately from an effort at registering the nation's most uneducated, uninterested and ignorant people to vote? What will they do in the next tight election, court the violent pedophile vote?

Afrocentrism is a set of beliefs that depicts ancient African achievement as the driver and foundation for modern philosophical thoughts and technologies. Afrocentrism verges on being classified as a religious faith because of the required suspension of skepticism and the irrelevance of empirical evidence. Afrocentrism is a backlash against the pervasive and powerful negative images of black (African) people that exist in the world today. These images arise from the countries, regions and cities that are dominated by blacks, each one being mired in poverty, violence, AIDS, famine and in constant need of support from other countries or other races. Without words, these images stir up powerful needs among blacks to imagine a glorious past where they were once the center of the world and looked down upon everyone else. To conduct Afrocentric research, one simply searches for evidence that could be interpreted as blacks ruling over others or inventing things. No further thought process is required.
Napoleon shot of the Spinx's nose because it "looked" like a black nose and he didn't want the world to know that blacks ruled ancient Egypt. Or, images within an Egyptian tomb that appear similar to a glider are evidence that blacks "invented" flight because, of course, the Egyptians were black then even though they are not now. And where is the physical evidence of these devices and their implementation? Again, no further thought process is required.

Apparently in the black community, this is a racist term because it has the word "black" in it without any words of praise surrounding it. Because of its political incorrectness, please note that it has now been renamed an African American Quantum Singularity.
John Wiley Price, the Mayor of Dallas and a black judge recently were offended and demanded an apology (no, I'm not making this up) for a white councilman referring to the traffic office as a "black hole" where paperwork is sent and never seen again. "How would you like it if I called it a 'white hole'?" Mr. Wiley-Price immediately retorted. Next on the list: Blackjack, Blackberry and Blackbird.
