  • Being White Is Awesome, so How Could We Be Racist?

    Being white is pretty awesome. Don't get me wrong, if I were a white male instead of a white woman, my life would be even more awesome, but being a white female is still powerful. Being white is an unearned privilege; I did absolutely nothing to get the white skin I have. Yet my white skin gives me power and credibility. I am not just a member of the club; I am a member of THE club. And the best part is that I don't have to show a membership card; the color of my skin is my membership card,...
  • The Vetting - Exclusive: Obama Letter to Bell to Blurb 'Dreams from My Father'

    Breitbart ^ | 4/26/2012 | Joel B. Pollak
    Barack Obama’s association with radical Critical Race Theory professor Derrick Bell did not end after Harvard Law School--and certainly not at the April 24, 1990 rally at which Obama embraced Bell, literally and figuratively. Breitbart News has discovered a letter sent by Obama to Bell in February 1995 in which Obama asks Bell to review--and to blurb--an early version of Obama’s autobiography, then entitled Dreams of My Father.

    Just when we thought things were beginning to look up for Oprah Winfrey, her highly successful magazine takes a fall. According to a new report, O, The Oprah Magazine is down millions of dollars in advertising sales in comparison to last year. The Association of Magazine Media reports that ad sale revenue for O, The Oprah Magazine was $48.8 million in 2011. However, this year ad sales are at a low of $34.2 million, which translates to a decrease of 24.1 percent. The magazine's newsstand sales have also been declining as of late. According to the Audit Bureau of Circulations,...

    When I was 12 years old, I used to play tennis at a certain public park in the Bronx. One day it got back to me that a black fellow at the courts, whose name I forget, said, "Selwyn doesn't like black people." This raised my eyebrows. You see, I had never really thought about the man one way or the other. And what occupied my mind were forehands, backhands, topspin, and volleys, not race. So the only thing I could figure was that I was probably in a funk one day and didn't hear and acknowledge a greeting he...
  • US Justice Department to monitor Tuesday's election in Wisconsin

    04/02/2012 2:20:26 PM PDT · by afraidfortherepublic · 20 replies
    The U.S. Justice Department says it is dispatching observers to watch over Wisconsin's presidential primary on Tuesday. The Justice Department said Monday its poll watchers will be in Milwaukee to ensure compliance with the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and other federal voting rights laws. The Voting Rights Act prohibits discrimination in the election process on the basis of race, color or membership in a minority language group. Milwaukee is required under the law to provide assistance to Spanish-speaking voters. The Justice Department sends hundreds federal observers to monitor elections around the country every year.

    American Thinker ^ | March 31, 2012 | Jason Lee, M.D.
    The liberal Supreme Court justices have demonstrated profound and shocking ignorance of the American health care system. Here's one of the most jarring examples: "What percentage of the American people who took their son or daughter to an emergency room and that child was turned away because the parent didn't have insurance," asked Sotomayor, "... do you think there's a large percentage of the American population that would stand for the death of that child -- (who) had an allergic reaction and a simple shot would have saved the child?" I have a precise answer for Justice Sonia Sotomayor. The...

    During an odd and fiery interview on CNN Monday night, Anderson Cooper tussled with Mikhail Muhammad of The New Black Panther Party over the group’s reaction to the death of Florida Teen Trayvon Martin. The New Black Panther Party has offered a reward for the capture of Martin’s shooter George Zimmerman, and cited “street people law” during the interview Monday night as justification for charging murder against George Zimmerman while calling for a citizen’s arrest. When pressed by Cooper on the legality, he responded that he could make a citizen’s arrest of Zimmerman, who has not yet been charged for...

    American Thinker ^ | 03/18/2012 | Clarice Feldman
    In 1961 a play titled "The Blacks : A Clown Show" by the French petty criminal and homosexual prostitute Jean Genet, was the avant garde sensation of New York. At the St. Marks Playhouse it starred a cast of Black actors, then young but now well-known to us all -- people like James Earl Jones, Louis Gossett, Cecily Tyson, Godfrey Cambridge, Maya Angelou, and Roscoe Lee Brown. As I recall --though the cast most certainly changed over time -- it remained one of the longest running off-Broadway plays of that decade. In its review of the play, the NYT's Taubman...
  • Native American tribe given permit to kill bald eagles (for religious purposes)

    Fox News/AP ^ | March 14, 2012 | Associated Press
    CHEYENNE, Wyo. – The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has taken the unusual step of issuing a permit allowing an American Indian tribe in Wyoming to kill two bald eagles for religious purposes. The agency's decision comes after the Northern Arapaho Tribe filed a federal lawsuit last year contending the refusal to issue such permits violates tribal members' religious freedom. Although thousands of American Indians apply for eagle feathers and carcasses from a federal repository, permits allowing the killing of bald eagles are exceedingly rare, according to both tribal and legal experts on the matter.

After news came down today that the Obama administration had successfully blocked a Texas voter ID law from going into effect Greg Abbott, the Texas Attorney General, took to twitter to announce he was suing Eric Holder and the Department of Justice. The Texas Attorney General also released this statement on his website today: “The Justice Department’s decision to deny preclearance to Texas’ Voter ID law is no surprise given the Obama Administration’s denial of a similar law in South Carolina....

    (CBS News) President Obama's approval rating has hit the lowest level ever in CBS News polling, according to the latest CBS News/New York Times survey. The drop may be partially attributable to rising gas prices. Just 41 percent of Americans approve of the job Mr. Obama is doing as president, according to the poll, conducted from March 7 to 11. Another 47 percent disapprove of his performance, up from 41 percent last month. Mr. Obama's approval rating was 50 percent last month. The average U.S. price of a gallon of gasoline has jumped 12 cents over the past two weeks....

    There is a short phrase, just four words, inscribed up above the main entryway into United States Supreme Court, "Equal Justice Under Law." I took note of this inscription on April 1, 2003, when my case, Gratz v. Bollinger, and a companion case, Grutter v. Bollinger, were heard by the high court. My case challenged affirmative action policies in admissions at the University of Michigan's undergraduate school; Barb Grutter's challenged affirmative action policies at the law school. By the time my case was heard by the Supreme Court the University of Michigan admitted that their affirmative action policy gave a...

    The Justice Department is objecting to a new photo ID law in Texas for voters, saying the state has failed to demonstrate that the the law is not discriminatory by design against Hispanic voters. The department's head of the civil rights division, Tom Perez, wrote a a six-page letter to Texas' director of elections saying that Texas has not "sustained its burden" under Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act to show that the new law will not have a discriminatory effect on minority voters. About 11 percent of Hispanic voters reportedly lack state-issued identification. Perez wrote that while the...

    So not only is Elena Kagan a conflict of interest in the ObamaCARE SCOTUS case, because she was Solicitor General for Obama while the bill was being past, but she also edited an article by Derrick Bell while at Harvard that makes clear that Critical Race Theory sees the U.S. Constitution as a form of “original sin.” So not only is Kagan a conflict of interest in maybe the most important case ever to hit the Supreme Court, she is also anti-constitution that she is supposed to uphold and defend as SCOTUS judge. Great. From Breitbart: In November 1985, the...

    In light of video surfacing this week showing President Barack Obama fully embracing radical Harvard Professor Derrick Bell, the man who said he lived to "harass white folks," an editing war on the Derrick Bell Wikipedia page has erupted. It looks as though editors are arguing about whether or not to even mention Obama's affiliation with Bell, despite evidence showing that the two were closely connected. It also looks like the page was set as "protected" at one point to avoid controversy. Notice the editing war started on the evening of March 7, just after the connect between Bell and...

    Via Dan Riehl and Ace, this almost too good to check. Go read Rebel Pundit’s post for an explanation, then skip to 2:00 below. (If you missed Ed’s post this morning, by all means watch the whole thing.) After sneering at Joel Pollak for supposedly mischaracterizing the discipline and then refusing to define it herself, she finally demonstrates her grasp of Critical Race Theory by uncorking a definition that’s curiously similar to … the opening of Wikipedia’s intro on CRT, replete with the noncolloquial use of “intersection” to describe an interdisciplinary study. Could be a coincidence — the definition she...

    The wraps came off high-definition DVD players at this year's annual Consumer Electronics Show, offering the final component to replicate the movie theater experience at home. And while a fierce DVD format war likely will delay the mass adoption of such devices, digital video is here to stay - the Consumer Electronics Association trade group estimates 25 million U.S. homes will have a high-def TV set by year's end. But big, expensive flat-panel sets aside, this year's gadget show offered plenty of smaller screens for video...

    The California Recovery Team, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's 2005 special election initiatives committee, settled a case brought before the state's Fair Political Practices Commission today by the Alliance for a Better California, a public employee unions coalition. ABC had charged that the Arnold campaign committee violated state elections law last year by not filing daily reports detailing its large expenditures on behalf of the governor's four unsuccessful "Year of Reform" initiatives. The committee (CRT) has agreed to pay a fine of some 200,000 dollars. That is less than the $263,000 levied against Democratic gubernatorial candidate Cruz Bustamante in the 2003 recall...

    The BigonAlbert Manque is a physicist of the old school. "Fifty years ago physicists could make experiments using material from the hardware store," says Manque, who works at the Centre de l'Etude des Choses Assez Minuscules in Paris. "I too prefer to work on a small scale." His penchant for tabletop research recently paid off. He and a colleague at the center have discovered an extraordinary new fundamental particle. Although the particle exists for just millionths of a second, it is the size of a bowling ball. Its existence, says Manque, could possibly explain a host of mysterious phenomena. Manque...
