    In light of all of the racially incendiary “reportage” of a media elite bent on creating a narrative to fit their agenda (regardless of whatever the facts are), it seems appropriate to go beyond the murky circumstances surrounding the death of Trayvon Martin.

    The boy raised his hand, eager to answer the question. “What would you know about it?” exclaimed the teacher dismissively. “You’re not our race.”This was not dialogue from a Hollywood movie. According to a woman named Melissa Coon, it was what a teacher at East High School in Kansas City told her 13-year-old son, Allen, when he attempted to answer a question during Black History Month. Coon identifies that teacher as Mrs. Karla Dorsey, who is black; Allen is white.As has already been reported, Allen was a victim of a vicious racial attack last week in which two older black...

    On March 17th, three white men were leaving an Applebees restaurant after midnight in Seneca, South Carolina.

Moore's friends say that he was zapped with a tazer and then stomped on after he fell to the crowd. The victim suffered several serious head injuries...

    The 911 call that George Zimmerman made to report Trayvon Martin as a "suspicious guy," has been sent to FBI headquarters in Washington D.C. for further analysis to determine if he uttered a racial slur, is exclusively reporting. As previously reported, Martin was killed as he was walking through a gated community, carrying candy and iced tea. Neighborhood crime-watch volunteer George Zimmerman shot the teen, claiming it was in self defense. During the 911 call, there has been speculation that Zimmerman uttered the racial slur, under his breath, " f*king c**ns" after he tells the dispatcher that Martin...

    MIAMI (AP) -- The U.S. Justice Department could bring a hate crime charge against the shooter in the killing of black Florida teenager Trayvon Martin if there is sufficient evidence the slaying was motivated by racial bias and not simply a fight that spiraled out of control, legal experts and former prosecutors say.

    I don't know if George Zimmerman is guilty or not. I wasn't there. That's not what this post is about. I had already noticed that Zimmerman was always referred to as White but every picture I had seen of him looked Hispanic. I assumed that this the old "White on Black crime fits the narrative" trick of the media we've all grown used to. But it was brought to my attention that there may be an insidious official aspect to this matter that no one has mentioned. Look at this PDF file. Notice that it's located on That's as...

The boy was just two blocks from his home in Kansas City Tuesday when two teenagers began to follow him and then attacked him, his mother, Melissa Coon, said. Police have described the suspects as black 16-year-olds, while the victim is white. "We were told it's a hate crime," Coon told KTLA.
