    A former Georgia police officer was sentenced to 12 years in prison Friday for the killing of a mentally ill, unarmed and naked black man in 2015. DeKalb County Superior Court Judge LaTisha Dear Jackson gave Robert "Chip" Olsen a 20-year term, with 12 years to be served in custody. Under the sentence, Olsen is prohibited from working in law enforcement, possessing firearms or profiting from the case. Dear Jackson praised what she said was the strength, fortitude and compassion of the family of the victim, 26-year-old Afghanistan war veteran Anthony Hill. She said she had also watched the defendant...

    Dr. Williams is a well known conservative economist and longtime John Olin Chair faculty at George Mason University in eastern Virginia, author of 12 books and syndicated columnist. In the past, he has been substitute host on the Rush Limbaugh radio program. He is almost like family to me, and I have benefited from his essays and books over the years. This past week, I saw and read his essay on disparities in crime rates among races that was picked up by Military in its October 2019 issue. What got Dr. Williams going was the article by Matthew DeLisi of...

    Robert Mugabe, the longtime leader of Zimbabwe who was forced to resign in 2017 after a military takeover, has died. His successor Emmerson Mnangagwa confirmed Mugabe’s death in a tweet Friday, mourning him as an “icon of liberation.” Mugabe was a former guerrilla chief who took power after the end of white minority rule in 1980 and presided over a country whose early promise was eroded by economic turmoil and human rights violations.

    Teachers at Cherry Creek School District in Colorado were asked to take a “white privilege” survey to make sure that they “reflect on their own racial identity and to think about how their experience in the world shapes their identity.” A school district in Colorado asked its teachers to take a “white privilege” survey, according to a report by PJ Media. The worksheet asked teachers a bizarre series of questions that have nothing to do with race, such as, for example, “Because of my race and/or color… If I should need to move, I can be pretty sure of hassle-free...

But why is this white boy begging for money in a Black neighborhood? Is he stupid?” I shake the evil out of my head and go into the subway. He comes every Spring.

    The Left is succeeding in demonizing the honorable profession of police officer to the point where cops are getting so fed they’re quitting and departments are plagued with officer shortages because fewer Americans want to subject themselves to the abuse. Police officers are racist, the Left screams. They ‘prey’ on young black men. After all, we have to believe that because Colin Kaepernick, Mr. Black Privilege, says so. But a new study by researchers from Michigan State University not only debunks that myth, it blows it out of the water with this bombshell conclusion: There’s just no evidence to support...

    An offer has been made to settle a legal dispute over an incident at a York County golf course that made national headlines. But that offer isn’t likely to settle anything any time soon. When police were called about five black women playing at the Grandview Golf Course on April 21, 2018, the complaint alleged against them was that they were playing too slowly. This claim, refuted by other golfers playing behind the women, did not result in any charged being filed. The group of women then filed a lawsuit in response, alleging that the call to police was due...

    Earlier this month, a jury awarded Gibson’s Bakery $11 million following a month-long trial stemming from the bakery’s lawsuit against Oberlin College and Vice President and Dean of Students Meredith Raimondo. Then, last Thursday, it added $33 million in punitive damages. This stunning decision — which strikes a serious blow against free speech on college campuses across the country — has garnered significant attention in major media outlets such as CNN and The New York Times, as well as on social media and various personal blogs. The tension between the College and Gibson’s began in November 2016, when three Black...

    ... On Thursday, responding to longstanding concerns that the system penalizes black and Hispanic students, Mr. de Blasio announced new rules that will limit arrests in schools for low-level offenses. In addition, it’s likely that the maximum amount of time for suspensions will be sharply reduced. For decades, city statistics have shown that the New York City school system has disciplined black and Hispanic students at higher rates than white and Asian children — an unsettling yet consistent feature of the nation’s largest school district. The new guidelines represent perhaps Mr. de Blasio’s most dramatic attempt to change how students...

    A black parolee arrested for raping and bashing a white woman on the roof of his Bronx apartment building allegedly told a witness that she “deserved” the brutal attack because of slavery, according to court papers. “She was a white girl. She deserved it because us minorities have been through slavery,” Temar Bishop, 23, allegedly said to someone who witnessed the bloodied 20-year-old woman after the assaults, according to a criminal complaint. “This is what they used to do to us. This is what they did to us during slavery. They used to beat us and whip us.” Temar Bishop,...

    A Black Lives Matter chapter in Memphis is demanding “a truthful accounting” of the marshals’ actions that led to a black man’s death, igniting anti-police riots Wednesday night. The activist group said it wants “transparency and accountability” for the death of suspect Brandon Webber, 20, who was wanted for allegedly committing armed robbery earlier in June. Webber reportedly crashed a stolen vehicle into a police car Wednesday evening, commencing a firefight between himself and federal agents that resulted in his death. Webber “reportedly rammed his vehicle into the officers’ vehicles multiple times before exiting with a weapon,” the Tennessee Bureau...

    Almost a year after Oregon state Rep. Janelle Bynum’s story of being questioned by police after a 911 call on her as she campaigned in her district went viral and sparked the hashtag #CampaigningWhileBlack, Oregon state senators have passed a bill that would allow the victims of frivolous, discriminatory 911 calls to sue the callers. On Monday, the Oregon state Senate passed House bill 3216, a measure introduced by the state’s three black Democratic legislators, including Bynum. The bill allows victims of these calls to sue a 911 caller for as much as $250 if the victim can prove that...

    Barron's ^ | June 9, 2019 | Jillian Berman
    The experience of repaying student loans is unpleasant for millions of graduates, but for some borrowers, paying off student debt is an almost insurmountable challenge. Twelve years after entering college, white men have paid off 44% of their student-loan balance on average, according to an analysis released Thursday by Demos, a left-leaning think tank. For white women, that share drops to 28%. For black borrowers, the picture is even bleaker. Black women see their loan balances actually grow 13% on average, 12 years after leaving school, while black men see their balances grow 11%. The age at which students enter...

    A judiciary panel at the University of Georgia has concluded that a teaching assistant and graduate student who came under scrutiny last January for making racially charged statements did not violate the student code of conduct. The graduate student had been accused of purposefully omitting a trespassing arrest from his UGA admissions application, among other allegations. University of Georgia (UGA) TA and graduate student, Irami Osei-Frimpong, was cleared by the panel on Tuesday after facing expulsion over allegations that he had failed to list his previous attendance the University of Chicago, as well as that he had purposefully omitted a...
