One of the tenets of Critical Race Theory is to see racism in everything. I talked about that in my ebook – “Racism Reimagined: How Critical Race Theory Imperils the American Workplace.” Whenever I see reports of hate crimes, I tend to be skeptical. This is not to say that hate crimes do not exist. They certainly do. However, I do not believe that they occur at the rates the mainstream media and the culture of leftist victimhood would have me believe. Case in point, check out this quote from Campus Reform:
Over the past five years, nearly 1,200 Michigan State University students and staff members reported racial discrimination incidents. Only eight instances, however, truly violated the school’s bias and discrimination policies.
According to data provided to the Lansing State Journal by Michigan State’s Office of Institutional Equity, affiliates reported 1,187 instances of race-based bias and discrimination between 2015 and September 2020. Of those instances, 76 revealed issues with conduct, and of those 76 issues, eight instances — less than 1 percent of all reported — constituted violations of the school’s policies.
Campus Reform independently confirmed this data with Michigan State University Office of Institutional Equity spokesperson Christian Chapman.
Nevertheless, Tanya Jachimiak — the head of the Office of Institutional Equity — told the Lansing State Journal that a committee is currently “looking at how and where our policy is able to address and be part of the solution to breaking down systems of oppression.”
Similarly, in spite of an average of less than two racial bias incidents per year, several departments and schools at Michigan State recently released statements and calls to action against racism.
When I read that I was not surprised as I think some of my readers may be. Last year, in the face of Jussie Smollett and Bubba Wallace race hoaxes, I did research on race hoaxes and produced a timeline of race hoaxes ranging from 2007 – 2020. I found 100+. Click here to review the timeline. At some point, I had to stop because it was beginning to feel overwhelming. If you want a more recent list of race crime hoaxes, check out the fake hate crimes database or HoaxHateCrimes.com.
And while we are on the topic of racism, it is amazing to me the standards that are acceptable in our society because clearly some of it is acceptable. It just depends on the group you are in. (Critical Race Theory supports this assertion. Oh, how I hate it.) For example, consider what happened recently at Yale University. NBC News reported:
The Justice Department told a federal judge Wednesday that it is dropping a high-profile discrimination lawsuit against Yale University that was brought by the Trump administration.
A two-sentence filing in U.S. District Court in Connecticut gave notice of the government’s “voluntary dismissal of this action.”

The case had marked an escalation in the Trump Justice Department’s attacks on affirmative action programs that many conservatives consider illegal.
Yale said it was gratified by the decision to drop the lawsuit.
What was the gist of the lawsuit? NBC explains further.
The lawsuit, which was filed in October, said a two-year investigation had determined that the Ivy League college illegally discriminated against Asian American and white students in admissions. It said they were only one-tenth to one-fourth as likely to be admitted as African American applicants with comparable academic records.
For the record, it is wrong and illegal to discriminate against any group. When the 2-year Yale investigation concluded last year, it was determined that “race is the determinative factor in hundreds of admissions decisions each year,” in violation of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, according to the Department of Justice. (Read it on the DOJ website for yourself.) And while this move may benefit African Americans, it is still wrong and unfair. Despite that, it is acceptable racism because Asians and Whites typically are of higher class, economically speaking. Consider the chart below.
Since Asians and Whites have the highest degree of household income in America, it’s okay to discriminate against them because the Hispanic and Black households are oppressed; argument being, the rich are rich because the poor are oppressed. The idea of someone being oppressed (or an oppressor) simply because of the color of their skin is something I very much disagree with. (In case you’re curious, listen to my podcast episode “Its Culture Not Color That Holds Us Back” or my rather lengthy article by the same name. But, I digress.
Both are provably true.
Pass it on.
‘The Purge’ by Big Tech targets conservatives, including us
Just when we thought the Covid-19 lockdowns were ending and our ability to stay afloat was improving, censorship reared its ugly head.
For the last few months, NOQ Report has appealed to our readers for assistance in staying afloat through Covid-19 lockdowns. The downturn in the economy has limited our ability to generate proper ad revenue just as our traffic was skyrocketing. We had our first sustained stretch of three months with over a million visitors in November, December, and January, but February saw a dip.
It wasn’t just the shortened month. We expected that. We also expected the continuation of dropping traffic from “woke” Big Tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Twitter, but it has actually been much worse than anticipated. Our Twitter account was banned. One of our YouTube accounts was banned and another has been suspended. Facebook “fact-checks” everything we post. Spotify canceled us. Why? Because we believe in the truth prevailing, and that means we will continue to discuss “taboo” topics.
The 2020 presidential election was stolen. You can’t say that on Big Tech platforms without risking cancelation, but we’d rather get cancelled for telling the truth rather than staying around to repeat mainstream media’s lies. They have been covering it up since before the election and they’ve convinced the vast majority of conservative news outlets that they will be harmed if they continue to discuss voter fraud. We refuse to back down. The truth is the truth.
The lies associated with Covid-19 are only slightly more prevalent than the suppression of valid scientific information that runs counter to the prescribed narrative. We should be allowed to ask questions about the vaccines, for example, as there is ample evidence for concern. One does not have to be an “anti-vaxxer” in order to want answers about vaccines that are still considered experimental and that have a track record in a short period of time of having side-effects. These questions are not allowed on Big Tech which is just another reason we are getting cancelled.
There are more topics that they refuse to allow. In turn, we refuse to stop discussing them. This is why we desperately need your help. The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We are on track to be short by about $5300 per month in order to maintain operations.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. We had 5,657,724 sessions on our website from November, 2020, through February, 2021. Our intention is to elevate that to higher levels this year by focusing on a strategy that relies on free speech rather than being beholden to progressive Big Tech companies.
During that four-month stretch, Twitter and Facebook accounted for about 20% of our traffic. We are actively working on operating as if that traffic is zero, replacing it with platforms that operate more freely such as Gab, Parler, and others. While we were never as dependent on Big Tech as most conservative sites, we’d like to be completely free from them. That doesn’t mean we will block them, but we refuse to be beholden to companies that absolutely despise us simply because of our political ideology.
We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
Join fellow patriots as we form a grassroots movement to advance the cause of conservatism. The coronavirus crisis has prompted many, even some conservatives, to promote authoritarianism. It’s understandable to some extent now, but it must not be allowed to embed itself in American life. We currently have 11,000+ patriots with us in a very short time. If you are interested, please join us to receive updates.
