    The first African-American elected to serve as a commissioner for Hennepin County, Minnesota, was sworn in using a copy of the “The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness,” by Michelle Alexander, a best-selling book that examines how mass incarceration has devastated the black community. According to The Minneapolis Star Tribune, Angela Conley is the first African-American to serve as commissioner in the county’s 166-year history. In representing the county’s fourth district, Conley will be representing parts of Minneapolis, it added. The first African-American elected to serve as a commissioner for Hennepin County, Minnesota, was sworn in...

    LOS ANGELES — A dead man was found early Monday in the Los Angeles-area apartment of the Democratic fundraiser Ed Buck, authorities said — the second time a body has been discovered in his home in the last year and a half. The dead man, whose identity wasn't disclosed, was found at 1:05 a.m. (4:05 a.m. ET) in Buck's apartment in West Hollywood after someone called 911, said Los Angeles County sheriff's Deputy Charles Moore, who said that while the Homicide Bureau was investigating, the cause of death remained unknown. Federal election records show that Buck, 63, who has advocated...

    Earlier this week, the State’s Attorney released a report which indicated that excessive force was not used in the 2017 shooting that killed a 20-year-old from New Britain. Today, family members of two teenagers who were shot at by Police, gathered for a news conference to address the report and dash cam video. “It was horrific,” said Gwen Cordero, the Mother of 18-year-old Noah Young. The deadly shooting that killed Zoe Dowdell occurred on Dec. 14, 2017 in the area of Chapman Street. Young and 15-year-old Caleb Tisdol were passengers in a car that matched the description of a car...

    “Another question from a student. Shelly Ward, a senior studying journalism and media studies. Shelly, what’s your question?” MSNBC host Joy Reid stated. “Congratulations on the election,” Ward said before asking, “Do you support the Black Lives Matter movement?” “Well, I support the recognition that black lives matter, for sure. And I have incorporated that in many of my statements. 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. I had a real privilege yesterday to address the swearing-in of the new black...

    As regular readers likely know, I’m generally a fan of any story that gets PETA up in arms. But in this case, I came to the headline in question needing a lot more information. It involves a report of a protest by a comedian named Tiffany Haddish. Despite the fact that I’m a big fan of standup comedy and watch plenty of comedians’ specials, I’d never heard of her. It turns out she’s been featured quite a bit and appeared in some movies I’d never seen, but I somehow missed her act up until now.This tale doesn’t have anything to...

    Jay-Z isn't the only person upset with Travis Scott for agreeing to perform with Maroon 5 at the 2019 Super Bowl halftime show. Rev. Al Sharpton slammed Scott, claiming that Scott essentially turned his back on the Black Lives Matter movement and police brutality against people of color by agreeing to perform at the NFL's biggest night. "I think anyone that goes into the halftime show is in effect directly violating those that want to raise the question that the NFL should come to terms with what they have done and continue to do to Colin Kaepernick and those that...

    hile money is not the root of all evil, it is undeniably responsible for the transformation of the University of Oregon (UO). It changed from a typical state flagship where athletics were a nice diversion for some students and alums into a sports powerhouse where the quest for glory in football and basketball dominates the school. The person directly responsible for that is Phil Knight, the founder of the athletic shoe and apparel giant Nike. At a time when the university’s president was desperately looking for outside funding for the school, Knight, an Oregon alum and huge athletics booster, was...

    For a man facing daily attacks for his activism and liberal vision of the world, George Soros was in a curiously buoyant mood on a sunswept afternoon in Marrakesh. He had just visited South Africa, home to his first philanthropic foray in the late 1970s, when he funded black students under apartheid. This time he learnt that Soros-backed investigative media and civil society groups had helped thwart an allegedly corrupt nuclear power plant contract with Russia. “It was a tremendous boost to reinforce my belief that we are doing something right,” says Mr Soros. “We haven’t stopped having a beneficial...

    Russian agents who favored Donald Trump's presidential candidacy harnessed the major players of America's tech industry in a sophisticated propaganda effort that was far more extensive than originally understood, according to a detailed analysis prepared for the Senate intelligence committee. The Russian efforts included an attempt to suppress the votes of African-Americans. Researchers combed through millions of posts from Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube created by the Internet Research Agency, the St. Petersburg-based firm run by a close ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin whose key executives have been indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller on charges of defrauding the...

    President Donald Trump rejects the narrative that Russia wanted him to win. USA Today examined each of the 3,517 Facebook ads bought by the Russian-based Internet Research Agency, the company that employed 12 of the 13 Russians indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller for interfering with the 2016 election. It turns out only about 100 of its ads explicitly endorsed Trump or opposed Hillary Clinton. Most of the fake ads focused on racial division, with many of the ads attempting to exploit what Russia perceives, or wants America to perceive, as severe racial tension between blacks and whites. Think of...

    In a note to Judge Michael Aloise in Queens Supreme Court on Tuesday night, the jury wrote: “After deliberating for the entire day we are split. It doesn’t seem like we can make progress. We feel that we have exhausted all of our options.” Lewis’ attorney then moved for a mistrial and Aloise granted it. “I’m inclined to agree even though it’s only been a day and a half,” Aloise said. “There were extensive deliberations. They covered issues central to the debate.” Aloise then wished members of the jury a happy holiday before dismissing them.

    When a mob of left-wing Antifa activists descended Wednesday night on Fox News personality Tucker Carlson’s D.C. home, it signaled a new phase in the political violence and angry confrontations that now are targeting the news media.Political violence has been rising in the U.S. since 2012, according to the Global Terrorism Database. Increasingly aggressive activists have pushed political confrontation to the limit since 2016, accosting Republican lawmakers and Trump administration officials in restaurants and in the halls of Congress. And now they’re going after conservative journalists at their homes.“Tucker Carlson, we will fight. We know where you sleep at night!”...

    Police in Pasadena, Calif., arrested a Black Lives Matter protester on two outstanding warrants for terrorist threats, assault, trespassing, and petty theft among other alleged crimes. The Pasadena Star-News reports that Jasmine Richards’ arrest emerged out of a protest that took place last week. Richards’ arrest appears to have occurred shortly before a meeting of the Pasadena City Council. The Black Lives Matter chapters in Los Angeles and Pasadena issued a statement claiming the police misused their authority in arresting the 28-year-old protester, who became a member of the organization after visiting Ferguson, Mo., in August 2014. “Since her return...

    Race, class, love, death, white privilege, black disadvantage. Those heavy subjects are present, alongside the seemingly foregone conclusions that the system is rigged against those at the bottom by those at the top, you can’t fight city hall (but you absolutely must not give in to despair). Alongside the kaleidoscopic chaos of just plain being a teenager in 21st-century America, these global themes carom off each other in this wise and bittersweet adaptation of Angie Thomas’ best-selling young-adult novel.

    Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum graduated from an Oakland, California-based training school for progressive revolutionaries that has spawned a list of activists who have gone on to become the who’s who of the far-left leadership world, with many taking senior positions at organizations financed by billionaire George Soros. In scores of cases, graduates of the Rockwood Leadership Institute founded or directed notorious Soros-financed activist groups, such as Black Lives Matter, Media Matters for America, MoveOn.org and the Tides Foundation, one of the nation’s largest funders of progressive groups. Soros’s own Open Society Foundations sent top staff to Rockwood for training....

    Antifa and Black Lives Matter protesters in Portland bully an elderly motorist, verbally attack a senior citizen in a wheelchair and disrupt traffic during a weekend demonstration caught in a series of stunning videos -- that also show no police presence as the chaos unfolds. The group of more than 100 people initially began marching through the streets of the Oregon city Saturday to protest the death of Patrick Kimmons, who was fatally shot by police Sept. 30 after a gunfight that left two men wounded at a parking lot near Southwest Third Avenue. -snip- videos show some members of...
