    For years, Shaun King has risen as one of the more high-profile activists of his era and that in turn has led to a growing number of critics from all sides who believed his efforts were questionable. Amid a chorus of dissent, King has released what he has deemed is an independent review of his finances and fundraising efforts to prove that he has not taken any monies for himself or family. The report was published via Medium and features the research work of Tamika Mallory, Co-Chair of The Women’s March and Co-Founder of Justice League NYC and civil rights...
  • How Black Lives Matter is moving into the schools

    In a few tumultuous years, Black Lives Matter has become the progressive left’s primary vehicle for anti-racist activism. Now, through the efforts of activist teachers, BLM is moving beyond street protests to establish a growing presence in the nation’s public schools. The initiative began in Seattle, where teachers organized a “Black Lives Matter at School Day,” in October, 2016. News of the event spread, and after the National Education Association adopted a resolution of endorsement, BLM at School Day became the BLM at School National Week of Action, to be held annually the first week of February to set the...

    Their falsehoods were immoral, divisive, and quite possibly unlawful. On Friday afternoon, two of the leading contenders in the Democratic presidential primary lied. There’s no other fair way to put it. They flat-out spread fiction, libeled an innocent man, and stoked American divisions — all for political gain. Five years ago, a Ferguson, Mo., police officer named Darren Wilson shot a young black man named Michael Brown to death after an altercation in the street. False rumors about Brown’s death — namely that he was shot in cold blood while trying to surrender with his hands in the air —...

    Shaun King, a columnist at the Intercept and alumnus of the New York Daily News, praised the antifa activist who was killed while attacking a migrant detention facility in Tacoma, WA, in a series of social media posts he has since deleted. On Monday, King described 69-year-old Willem Van Spronsen as a “martyr” for approaching a building used by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), armed with a loaded gun and throwing incendiary devices at cars and a propane tank. An ICE spokesman told Breitbart News that the attack “could have resulted in the mass murder of staff and detainees housed...

    A town hall featuring South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg devolved into chaos Sunday as the city struggled to respond to a deadly police-involved shooting last week. In his opening remarks, the 37-year-old Buttigieg, a Democrat and candidate for president, said he would send a letter to the Justice Department requesting that its civil rights division look into the June 16 shooting of 54-year-old Eric Logan, who was black. The mayor added that he would notify the local prosecutor that he'd like an independent investigator appointed.

    The network of street and campus demagogues known as Black Lives Matter pretty much has operated with impunity since its founding. But a court ruling late last month could make these social media-based grievance peddlers think twice before targeting cops.  On April 24, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit unanimously ruled that an injured Baton Rouge, La., police officer has legal standing to sue DeRay Mckesson (he prefers not to capitalize the “k”), Black Lives Matter’s unofficial mouthpiece and most visible organizer. Mckesson, the complaint read, in coaxing a large group of demonstrators...

    Fox News host Jeanine Pirro has scored a courtroom victory over Black Lives Matter activist DeRay McKesson, whose defamation lawsuit against Pirro has been dismissed. During a 2017 broadcast about injuries suffered by a Baton Rouge, Louisiana, police officer, Pirro said that McKesson “was directing” violence against the officer. McKesson then sued. According to his decision, New York State Supreme Court Justice Robert Kalish, sitting in Manhattan, said Pirro had the right to express her In his ruling, he said Pirro’s own lawyer labeled her style “loud, caustic and hard hitting.” “Pirro’s lack of temperament, and caustic commentary is what she is known,...

    ... In Baltimore, you can tell a lot about the politics of the person you’re talking with by the word he or she uses to describe the events of April 27, 2015. Some people, and most media outlets, call them the “riots”; some the “unrest.” Guy was among those who always referred to them as the “uprising,” a word that connoted something justifiable and positive: the first step, however tumultuous, toward a freer and fairer city. Policing in Baltimore, Guy and many other residents believed, was broken, with officers serving as an occupying army in enemy territory — harassing African-American...

    BALTIMORE — A Maryland woman whose death last year was blamed on an attack by a panhandler was actually killed by her husband and his adult daughter, police said Sunday. Keith Smith, 52, had told police that his wife, Jacquelyn, an engineer from Harford County, was trying to give money to a panhandler at a traffic light when she was robbed and fatally stabbed. Both were arrested in Harlingen, Texas, near the Mexico border. Harrison said the two were preparing to leave the country.

    In 2015, I documented that crime in Baltimore was rising rapidly as police resources became stretched as they dealt with riots and anger following the death of Freddie Gray. I warned that the city could tip into a permanently higher crime rate. It’s now become clear that is exactly what happened as an investigative report by The Trace reveals: "Instead of getting backup, detectives were pulled from their cases, sometimes for days at a time, to help quell the violence. By 2016, homicide investigators cumulatively spent 10,000 hours working riot duty and patrol rather than tracking down murderers… In the...

I think all lives matter, yes,” Pelosi responded. “But there has — we really have to redress past grievances in terms of how we have addressed the African-American community.
