Over the past few weeks, Americans have had provided to them two new and diverse sets of emojis to reflect, more precisely, their exact physical characteristics: Latino emojis and curly-haired emojis.

Zubi Advertising released the Latino-culture emoji keyboard and Unilever’s Dove crafted the “curly-haired” emojis, both available to download for free.

Many campuses are seeing sets of “Demands” issued by students to administrations, often seeking to suppress speech the students deem offensive and to increase faculty and student affirmative action policies and programs.

It’s not surprising that the Demand movement has come to my alma mater, Hamilton College, in upstate New York.

Illegal immigration and terrorism are hot political issues in the 2016 election, which makes things difficult for Democrats who aren’t allowed to say “radical Islam” or “illegal immigrants.”

This is the next battlefield, which already has arrived.

As far as the feds are concerned, it is unlawful discrimination if a school provides anything less than full, unrestricted access for male transgender students to areas previously deemed private girls-only areas, such as showers and locker rooms.

Not very, according to a study done by The Cornell Daily Sun, the student newspaper. By dollar volume, 96.62% of political donations during 2011-2014 went to Democratic candidates or related PACs, and just 2.76% to Republicans or related PACs.

Ithaca College is pretty sensitive to “microaggressions.”

What is a microaggression? Where have you been, under a rock? (I hope that didn’t offend you.)

One of the inventors of the terminology and theory describes it this way:

Microaggressions are the everyday verbal, nonverbal, and environmental slights, snubs, or insults, whether intentional or unintentional, which...
