    Athletes across the country have been sitting or kneeling during the national anthem in recent weeks to protest police brutality and racism. But a football game in Washington, D.C. may mark the first time a squad of cheerleaders has taken a knee during the song. Cheerleaders at Howard University joined a national protest on Saturday afternoon by kneeling during the anthem at the AT&T Nation's Football Classic at RFK Stadium.

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Did you hear what Obama said? This happened when I was away. When this happened, when I heard about this, I almost got on the plane and flew 12 hours back here. I could have done it on the phone but I don't trust it. Obama in his commencement speech at Howard University, do you remember what he said? Here's what he said to the class of 2016 at Howard University: "Yes, you've worked hard, but you've also been lucky," and that's a pet peeve of mine. "People have been successful and don't realize they've been lucky,...

    In so many ways and to our great hurt, Obama really has kept his promise to 'fundamentally change America' In his recent commencement address at Howard University our president’s racism-laced message to graduates strategically included the words, “Have confidence in your blackness.” But what most got my attention was that his entire speech was presented in his own version of ‘homeboy’ with a clumsy Ebonic lilt/cadence. The down-home, laid-back talk that he couldn’t quite pull off was, in my view, an embarrassing insult to the noble scholars and their parents, many of whom just wanted to enjoy the moment and...

    The White House says President Barack Obama will deliver his final commencement speeches as president at Rutgers University, Howard University and the Air Force Academy. The president typically delivers just a few graduation speeches every year, including one to a service academy. Last year, he spoke to graduates of Lake Area Technical Institute in Watertown, South Dakota, and the cadets of the Coast Guard Academy. …

    In the hot days of summer, the progressive revolution that took over cities and even the national government is frenziedly devouring itself. The media is pounding away at Hillary Clinton, not because it cares about her foundation’s dirty deals or the contents of her email server, but because it doesn’t trust her ideological commitment. If the media were sure of that, both stories would have been treated like Benghazi; mocked, ridiculed, falsely fact checked and then buried in a haunted Indian graveyard under the New York Times building at midnight. Instead the media pined for Elizabeth Warren. When the Native...

    Why was America so shocked by homegirl hoaxer Rachel Dolezal? The spray-tanned con artist, who resigned this week as head of the Spokane chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of (Artificially) Colored People, is the inevitable outcome of academia's cult of manufactured victimhood. College campuses have been grooming a cadre of professional minority fakers and fraudsters for decades. The notorious pretendians Ward Churchill and Elizabeth Warren faked their Native American status to bolster their faculty credentials at the University of Colorado and Harvard, respectively. It was a mutually beneficial racket for all poseur parties involved. Churchill and Warren...

    The NAACP official who today resigned in the face of evidence that she masqueraded as black once sued Howard University for denying her teaching posts and a scholarship because she was a white woman, The Smoking Gun has learned. Rachel Dolezal, 37, who headed the NAACP’s Spokane, Washington chapter, sued Howard for discrimination in 2002, the year she graduated from the historically black college with a Master of Fine Arts degree. Dolezal, then known as Rachel Moore, named the university and Professor Alfred Smith as defendants in a lawsuit filed in Washington, D.C.’s Superior Court. During the pendency of the...

    Rachel Dolezal, the former head of the Spokane chapter of the NAACP, sued Howard University after she received her graduate degree there, claiming the historically black college had discriminated against her because she was white. [Snip] WTTG reported that Dolezal filed her lawsuit against Howard in 2002, asking for damages due to "medical and emotional distress." Dolezal, who then went by her married name, Rachel Moore, claimed the university blocked her appointment as a teaching assistant, failed to hire her as an art teacher upon graduation and removed some of her pieces from a student art exhibition in favor of...

    Langston Hughes looked kindly on racial “passing.” In his essay, Fooling Our White Folks, he describes it as a con at the expense of whites who deserve whatever they get: “Because our American whites are stupid in so many ways, racially speaking, I have great tolerance for persons of color who deliberately set out to fool our white folks.”Our white folks are very easily fooled. Being so simple about race, why shouldn’t they be? . . . since they are prejudiced, there’s no harm in fooling the devil, is there? . . . Most colored folks think that as long...

    This was in 2002, before the “transition.” According to a Court of Appeals opinion, Dolezal’s lawsuit “claimed discrimination based on race, pregnancy, family responsibilities and gender.” She alleged that Smith and other school officials improperly blocked her appointment to a teaching assistant post, rejected her application for a post-graduate instructorship, and denied her scholarship aid while she was a student.The court opinion also noted that Dolezal claimed that the university’s decision to remove some of her artworks from a February 2001 student exhibition was “motivated by a discriminatory purpose to favor African-American students over” her.As detailed in the court...

    Barack Obama went on the Frank Ski Show Monday at 4:10 PM. President Barack Obama attacked Republicans as ‘un-American’ in an interview on Monday. Obama made the incendiary remarks while speaking to Frank Ski on WHUR-FM, the radio station of Howard University in Washington, D.C. Howard University bills itself as the “nation’s premier Historically Black College and University.” Obama called Republicans “un-American” for efforts to ‘restrict the franchise’ of voting by calling for voter ID laws and moving to curtail early and weekend voting. In April of this year, Obama agreed with a supporter at a Democratic Party fundraiser in...

    A patient who was evaluated for Ebola at Howard University Hospital in Washington, D.C., does not have the disease, according to the DC Department of Health and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The Patient had traveled to Nigeria recently. That person was admitted to the hospital in stable condition and was isolated. The hospital continues to treat the patient for other illnesses. In a White House briefing Friday, Sylvia Burwell, the U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services, said of the Howard case, "What you see are people taking precautions." There are no confirmed cases of Ebola...

    There is nothing the cable channels love more than a good murder trial, especially if the violence is spiced with the irresistible seasoning of race. But you don't understand much about America if you don't know that only some racial recipes are newsworthy. If the victim is white and the killer is black, it's not interesting (unless the killer is a celebrity). If the victims are both white, it's only interesting if the victim or the murderer is a comely blond female (preferably a nymphomaniac). If the victim and killer are both black, it's a yawn. If the victim is...

    Rand Paul’s speech at Howard University yielded about what would have been expected. The media focused on the crowd’s tepid reactions. Various liberal pundits dwelled on Paul’s awkward moments: the senator unwisely choosing a “did you know” riff that assumed his audience’s ignorance about certain historical points of reference, while he blanked on the name of Edward Brooke, a Republican who happened to be the only black man in the 20th Century who won a Senate election; and Paul’s tortured effort to contextualize his criticism of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. If Paul was simply showing up as a token...

    'We'll have to see what the Howard students thought,' Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul shouted from an elevator Wednesday afternoon, answering MailOnline's question about whether his foray into winning the hearts and minds of black youths was successful. Paul, a Republican darling who is already laying the groundwork for a 2016 presidential run with a coming appearance in New Hampshire, had just wrapped up a two-hour appearance at the Howard University School of Business. Howard is among the U.S. colleges classified as 'historically black,' and the audience of approximately 300 included few white faces apart from those belonging to reporters. (VIDEO...

    Sen. Rand Paul R-Ky. delivered an effective speech at Howard University, even though he rhetorically stumbled at points. The audience was mostly silent through Paul’s prepared speech, which highlighted traditional Republican policies such as school choice, free markets, and limited government. Paul’s more libertarian ideas, however, appeared to resonate with the audience, as they applauded for his views on reduced jail penalties for non-violent drug users and a more humble foreign policy. “Republicans are often miscast as uncaring or condemning of kids who make bad choices,” Paul said. “I, for one, plan to change that.” Paul admitted that Republicans had...

    The GOP minority outreach efforts continue: This time, it’s Sen. Rand Paul taking the message to a historically black university. How the libertarian-minded senator is received will indicate how well GOP is making inroads with minorities. Paul will be delivering a speech at Howard University on Wednesday, where he’ll talk about “the importance of outreach to younger voters, as well as minority groups,” according to his office. He also plans to address school choice and civil liberties. The Kentucky Republican’s appearance echoes the recommendations made in the Republican National Committee’s autopsy report, detailing why the party lost the 2012 election...

One featured participant said President Obama, “does not deserve a pass anymore” regarding confronting Black issues head on and asked that the President “summon his courage” and “find his voice” on economic inequality in America. **SNIP** There has been discussion on what some refer to as a “cone of silence” over the Obama presidency regarding issues dealing with race and racial disparities in America. The Washington Monthly magazine featured Obama and race on their front cover...
