    YORK, Pa.—Are you OK? Where are you? Barbara Estep kept texting her daughter, Nylaya Way, who was not responding. Donald Trump had stunned the nation by winning the presidency the night before, and now frightening things were happening at Nylaya’s vocational high school, York County School of Technology. Racial tensions had been building in the school’s corridors, cafeteria, and parking lot throughout the historically divisive campaign. Then, hours after Trump claimed victory in the election, they boiled over as a group of white students held aloft Trump campaign signs and chanted in a hallway, “White power!’’ A brief video clip...

    Police in Claremont, New Hampshire are investigating the alleged hanging of a biracial boy on August 28. So my son is being flown to Dartmouth after a 14 year old kid decided to hang him from a tree, Cassandra Merlin wrote in a now-deleted Facebook post. I dont care if this was a so called accident or not. My son almost died because of little shit teenage kids. She said her son is okay, and included several pictures of the boys neck. The childs uncle Lyrik Merlin wrote about it that same day, sharing one of the same images.

    Its pretty gross but very effective. Recently, a HuffPo contributor found out that her background wasnt 100% African American like she thought. Turns out she is part white. Cue the meltdown You see, her whole life, Chistine Michel Carter had been told that she was Black and Native American, so when she found out that her Native American heritage negligible, she was pretty confused. Further complicating matters was the fact that the DNA test also told her that she was 31.5% European, which Carter said made her feel shame and disorient. Of all the emotions which materialized from the results,...

    MADISON, Wis. A white Wisconsin police officer won't face criminal charges for fatally shooting an unarmed 19-year-old biracial man whom witnesses say was acting erratically and had assaulted two people, a prosecutor announced Tuesday. Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne, who is biracial but identifies as black, said he won't file charges against Madison Officer Matt Kenny in the death of Tony Robinson. Kenny shot Robinson on March 6 in an apartment house near the state Capitol building.

    Long before Michelle Obama became First Lady, her mother had misgivings about her marrying a young man named Barack Obama because he was biracial. In a Chicago TV interview that aired during Obamas 2004 U.S. Senate campaign and newly resurrected by Michelle Obama biographer Peter Slevin in a book due out next month Marion Robinson confessed to being a little bit wary about her future son-in-law being the product of a white mom and black dad. But it couldve been worse, according to Robinson. That didnt concern me as much as had he been completely white, Robinson...

    Fox News reporter Adam Housley has some harsh words for those who levy racially-charged insults at him and his wife Tamera Mowry over their interracial marriage. Earlier today we reported on OWNs special interview with TV star Mowry, in which she tearfully recounted being called a white mans whore, among other slurs. Speaking with TV Newser, Housley excoriated those who wish to cut down their relationship. The fact that in this day and age, we get attacked for our interracial relationship is beyond sadit is pathetic, he said. Yes I am white. Yes she is half black. Marrying a white...

    Conservative journalist and author Michelle Malkin is speaking out in support of Tamera Mowry, the former child star who said last week that she was subjected to hurtful racism online because she has a white husband. Mowry, who starred along with her identical twin on the '90s sitcom "Sister, Sister," is biracial and married Fox News correspondent Adam Housley in 2011. Speaking Friday on an episode of the OWN network's "Oprah: Where Are They Now?" the 35-year-old said she was shocked by some of the comments she read about her relationship online. "I get called 'white man's whore,'" she said...

    By checking 'black' as his race on the census form, President Obama is at odds with clear demographic trends toward multiracial pride. The number of Americans identifying as both white and black jumped 134% in 10 years. It could have been a historic teaching moment. Instead, President Obama, the most famous mixed-race person in the world, checked off only one race black last year on his census form. And in so doing, he missed an opportunity to articulate a more nuanced racial vision for the increasingly diverse country he heads. The president also bucked a trend. Last month,...

    How can CBS News explain this photoshopped picture? What possible explanation could they have? Accompanying their election coverage on their website, CBS published this photoshopped picture of a half black/half white President Obama with Republicans and Democrats on either side of him as if to say he is split between the two. Needless to say Obama's white side is on the side of the GOP's John Boehner and Eric Cantor. His black half is on the side of Harry Reid and Charles Schumer. Are they saying that Obama will have to act white with Republicans? How could anyone think that...

    He may be the world's foremost mixed-race leader, but when it came to the official government head count, President Barack Obama gave only one answer to the question about his ethnic background: African-American. The White House confirmed Friday that Obama did not check multiple boxes on his U.S. Census form, or choose the option that allows him to elaborate on his racial heritage. He ticked the box that says "Black, African Am., or Negro."

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) apologized today for referring to President Barack Obama as "light skinned" and "with no Negro dialect" in private conversations during the 2008 presidential campaign. "I deeply regret using such a poor choice of words," said Reid in a statement. "I sincerely apologize for offending any and all Americans, especially African Americans for my improper comments." The Senate Majority Leader was officially neutral in the primary fight between Obama and then Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (N.Y.). Reid's remarks about Obama were revealed in "Game Change", a book detailing the 2008 race penned by Time's Mark...

    Is there anyway to remind the ones calling everyone who disagrees with the potus "a racist" that he is also white? What I want to know is why is he considered a black man? Last time I checked he was born from a white mother, whose parents were both white as well. Why is he soley black? To consider him "ONLY BLACK" is racist! Why won't the conservative voices of the airwaves raise that question? I think by considering himself to be only black or all of the voices calling those who disagree a racist, should remember he is as...

    The American Thinker ^ | May 23, 2009 | Kevin Jackson
    received an email from a black man who was attempting to convince me that, though I am completely black, I have no experience growing up black in America. The bulk of his theory on my blackness' was based on the fact that I constantly lampoon Obama in my blog. He counseled me to embrace Obama, as Obama could help me to "rediscover the black experience." He warned that "whites would never see me, as I see me." Touting Obama as the poster child for blackness is a ridiculous notion. Further, the idea that Obama can teach me "blackness" is equally...

    Multiracial Pupils to Be Counted in New Groups By Michael Alison Chandler and Maria Glod Washington Post Staff Writers March 23, 2009 Public schools in the Washington region and elsewhere are abandoning their check-one-box approach to gathering information about race and ethnicity in an effort to develop a more accurate portrait of classrooms transformed by immigration and interracial marriage. Next year, they will begin a separate count of students who are of more than one race. For many families in the District, Montgomery and other local counties that have felt forced to deny a part of their children's heritage, the...

    A perplexing new chapter is unfolding in Barack Obama's racial saga: Many people insist that "the first black president" is actually not black. Debate over whether to call this son of a white Kansan and a black Kenyan biracial, African-American, mixed-race, half-and-half, multiracial or, in Obama's own words, a "mutt" has reached a crescendo since Obama's election shattered assumptions about race. Obama has said, "I identify as African-American that's how I'm treated and that's how I'm viewed. I'm proud of it." In other words, the world gave Obama no choice but to be black, and he was...

    He is also half white. Unless the one-drop rule still applies, our president-elect is not black. We call him that -- he calls himself that -- because we use dated language and logic. After more than 300 years and much difficult history, we hew to the old racist rule: Part-black is all black. Fifty percent equals a hundred. There's no in-between. That was my reaction when I read these words on the front page of this newspaper the day after the election: "Obama Makes History: U.S. Decisively Elects First Black President."

    Is Obama black? It depends on who - and when - you ask. For some of us, the heralding of Barack Obama as the first black president of the United States seems a rather uncontroversial claim. ... The bulk of the people protesting against references to Obama as a black man, however, grant that he is "part" black (by way of his father), but assert that because he also has a white mother it is not "accurate" to call him black. ... For us, being black and mixed-race are not mutually exclusive. We have learned to live with the contradictions....

We, too, should acknowledge our fastest-growing ethnic minority In America in the spring of this year, 2008, a widow named Mildred Dolores Loving died at the age of 67. Let me hand the story over to the late Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court, Earl Warren, writing in 1967. In June 1958, Warren explained, two residents of Virginia, Mildred Jeter, a negro woman, and Richard Loving, a white man, were married in the District of Columbia pursuant to its laws. But not pursuant...
