List of monuments and memorials of the Confederate States of America[edit]

I added List of monuments and memorials of the Confederate States of America to WikiProject Discrimination. The history of these monuments and memorials is intertwined with the Jim Crow era and similar efforts to terrorize African-Americans. Many monuments are explicitly monuments to white supremacy. It's horrible. The article and talk page could really use some fresh eyes. Right now, there's a small group of older, conservative "military history" types who I believe are holding the article back from what it could become. Anyway, check it out. We could use the help. Thanks everyone. Fluous (talk) 07:18, 5 October 2017 (UTC)

Antisemitism in 21st-century Italy[edit]

This page is outdated (2012), NNPOV and most likely non-encyclopedic in contents. What should be done?--Dans (talk) 19:20, 12 November 2017 (UTC)

The subject probably isn't notable, and any useful content should be merged into Antisemitism in Italy. Oh, wait -- that subject isn't sufficiently notable for its own article, so it redirects to Antisemitism in Europe#Italy. — MShabazz Talk/Stalk 19:29, 12 November 2017 (UTC)

African-American Civil Rights Movement (1954–1968) requested move[edit]

There is an ongoing move request for the African-American Civil Rights Movement (1954–1968) and similar pages. Please feel free to comment at the move request page. Thanks  — Amakuru (talk) 15:41, 23 November 2017 (UTC)

Coffey v. State Educational Finance Commission[edit]

It seems like we should have an article on Coffey v. State Educational Finance Commission.[1] The case was significant setback to the efforts to preserve school segregation in Mississippi. The appendix to the case has some interesting tables that have been cited by historians.[2]

WikiProject collaboration notice from the Portals WikiProject[edit]

The reason I am contacting you is because there are one or more portals that fall under this subject, and the Portals WikiProject is currently undertaking a major drive to automate portals that may affect them.

Portals are being redesigned.

The new design features are being applied to existing portals.

At present, we are gearing up for a maintenance pass of portals in which the introduction section will be upgraded to no longer need a subpage. In place of static copied and pasted excerpts will be self-updating excerpts displayed through selective transclusion, using the template {{Transclude lead excerpt}}.

The discussion about this can be found here.

Maintainers of specific portals are encouraged to sign up as project members here, noting the portals they maintain, so that those portals are skipped by the maintenance pass. Currently, we are interested in upgrading neglected and abandoned portals. There will be opportunity for maintained portals to opt-in later, or the portal maintainers can handle upgrading (the portals they maintain) personally at any time.

Background[edit]

On April 8th, 2018, an RfC ("Request for comment") proposal was made to eliminate all portals and the portal namespace. On April 17th, the Portals WikiProject was rebooted to handle the revitalization of the portal system. On May 12th, the RfC was closed with the result to keep portals, by a margin of about 2 to 1 in favor of keeping portals.

There's an article in the current edition of the Signpost interviewing project members about the RfC and the Portals WikiProject.

Since the reboot, the Portals WikiProject has been busy building tools and components to upgrade portals.

So far, 84 editors have joined.

If you would like to keep abreast of what is happening with portals, see the newsletter archive.

If you have any questions about what is happening with portals or the Portals WikiProject, please post them on the WikiProject's talk page.

Thank you.    — The Transhumanist   07:34, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

Possible merge?[edit]

I was wondering if The Pink Tax should be merged into Gender-based price discrimination in the United States. An argument against the merge would be that the pink tax article could be about the term itself and has some content to that extent, however an argument against is that it does cover some of the same information as well and could be seen as largely redundant.

This was part of a student's class assignment and while I do like the article, I'm also concerned that it takes a specific viewpoint and doesn't use as strong of sourcing as they could - a lot of it looks to be Internet media as opposed to academic and scholarly sourcing.

What do you guys think? Shalor (Wiki Ed) (talk) 17:14, 15 June 2018 (UTC)

Embassy chapels[edit]

Hi everyone, I created a new page, Embassy chapel, that displays an interesting and underrated feature of Religion persecution: Embassy chapels. For example, before Catholicism was legal, English Catholics were able to worship at the Embassy chapels of foreign governments, like the French, Portuguese, or Sardinian embassy. Four London churches today have roots in those embassies (Church of St Anselm and St Cecilia, St Etheldreda's Church, Church of our Lady of the Assumption and Saint Gregory, St James's, Spanish Place. The page also talks about other embassy chapels around the world (for example, protestant churches in Italy of churches in China and the Ottoman Empire), which provided religious havens to persecuted religions thanks to diplomatic immunity. I've linked a lot of resources but I don't have much time to fill in the page. Any and all help is welcome. Eccekevin (talk) 18:43, 26 June 2018 (UTC)

Intersectionality[edit]

Hello, can someone check the Intersectionality page? The "Criticism" section was full of non notable and irrelevant content. Rupert Loup (talk) 12:10, 20 September 2018 (UTC)

Hello again, there is currently an RfC in Wikipedia:Neutral point of view/Noticeboard#Intersectionality, comments are appreciated. Rupert Loup (talk) 10:57, 3 October 2018 (UTC)
