    Anthony McClanahan, 46, has been charged with killing his 28-year-old wife Keri "KC" McClanahan. A FORMER professional NFL player murdered his wife by slitting her throat with a knife as she desperately tried to fight him off, prosecutors say. Anthony McClanahan, who trained with the Dallas Cowboys in the 1990s, has been charged with killing his 28-year-old wife Keri "KC" McClanahan. The 46-year-old allegedly sliced his wife's neck and then crawled on the ground outside their rented Utah home in the Park Regency in Park City before flagging down a police officer, officials said.

    For someone who is in love and recently married, a wedge of “very odd pain” is lodged in Mpho Tutu van Furth’s heart. It is caused by the South African Anglican church’s refusal to allow the daughter of one of the world’s best known Christian leaders to continue to work as a priest after she married the person with whom she has pledged to share the rest of her life: a woman. “It was hard for me to give up my [priest’s] licence, it felt incredibly sad,” Tutu van Furth – whose father, Desmond Tutu, won the Nobel peace prize...

    Full disclosure: I have a daughter-in-law who has a Black father and three grandchildren who have a Black grandfather. I notice on the few commercials that show an interracial couple it is, without exception, a Black man and a White woman. It is never the reverse of that. I understand that it is much more common for a Black male to marry a White female than the reverse and I don't care who marries who, (as long a they are of two, separate genders), but why is this?

    Don't hold your breath waiting for Holder to launch a hate crime investigation. SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - A Savannah couple says they were attacked in Ellis Square because they are not the same race. Andrew Quade's eye is swollen shut and his face is swollen after the 23 year old says he was attacked in Ellis Square Friday night. He was with his African-American girlfriend walking through the square when he says three men shouted racial slurs at them. The next thing the couple remembers, Quade was unconcious on the ground. "He was basically left for dead. I don't want...

    If you’re a 20-year-old black male, you can beat an 85-year-old white woman to death and pummel her 90-year-old white husband straight into ICU, and it won’t make the national news. Yep. Tyrone Woodfork, a black male who -- much like Trayvon Martin -- looks like Obama’s son, allegedly killed Nancy Strait and broke her husband Bob’s jaw, several ribs and shot him in the face with a BB gun last month in Tulsa. 20-year-old Tyrone also raped the nearly blind 97-pound Mrs. Strait, a great-great-grandmother, before he murdered her. Did the above monstrous crime make the national news? Are...

    TULSA — Several members of the Tulsa chapter of the NAACP gathered at a north Tulsa church Friday evening for an emergency meeting to discuss what police have characterized as a possible "shooting spree" that targeted five people early Friday morning. As news spread that the police are looking for a white man in connection with the shootings of five black people, people began saying they believe the shootings were racially motivated. KRMG spoke with Tulsa City Councilor Jack Henderson as the meeting continued in the 2200 block of N. Peoria Avenue. When asked if people in the community felt...

    TULSA - Community leaders in North Tulsa are calling Friday morning's shooting spree a hate crime. The shooting spree left three people dead and two others seriously wounded. Police believe the victims were targeted at random. Authorities are focused on finding a white man driving a white pickup truck, who was seen in the area at the time of the shootings. "If you systematically target black folks and that's all you shot, and you come to the north side of town and you're a white male, and we know he was a white male, then what is one left to...
  • Expert: Zimmerman whispered 'punks' before shooting Trayvon Martin

    SANFORD, Florida (CNN) - A forensic audio expert who analyzed 911 recordings disagrees with speculation that George Zimmerman uttered a racial slur moments before shooting Trayvon Martin to death. What the neighborhood watch volunteer whispered as he followed the teen leading up to the deadly confrontation could weigh into the decision about charges against Zimmerman. The garbled word that raised controversy was "punks," not "coons," said Tom Owen, chairman emeritus of the American Board of Recorded Evidence. When Owen used a computer application to remove cell phone interference, the word became clearer, he said. After discussions with linguists, he became...

    President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign website has removed several videos that pitched alarmist messages to African-American voters, following reporting by The Daily Caller and the Fox News Channel. In one video that the campaign yanked from the “African-Americans for Obama” section of its website Tuesday, actress Tatyana Ali seemed to predict that a second Obama term would bring a host of benefits to African-Americans once the president no longer had to concern himself with campaigning.

    KNOXVILLE — A Tennessee judge was so addicted to prescription drugs during his final two years on the bench, he was having sex and buying pills during courtroom breaks, at times purchasing from convicts he had previously sentenced, an investigation found. His behavior has called into question many of the cases he presided over, including one of Knoxville's most notorious murders. Many people didn't realize Criminal Court Judge Richard Baumgartner had a problem until he stepped down from the bench and pleaded guilty in March 2011 to a single count of official misconduct. It would be another eight months before...

    Marion Barry complains of Asian-owned 'dirty' shops after winning DC primary Published April 05, 2012 | Former D.C. Mayor Marion Barry is once again attracting the wrong kind of attention, after he used his election-night victory speech to decry Asian-owned stores. "We've got to do something about these Asians coming in, opening up businesses -- those dirty shops," Barry said Tuesday night, after winning the Democratic primary for the city's Ward 8 seat and effectively securing a third council term. Barry went on to say: "They ought to go. I'll just say that right now, you know. But we...

    Ward 8 D.C. Councilman Marion Barry is on the hot seat again. Celebrating his victory in the Democratic primary on Tuesday night, Barry spoke up about the prominence of businesses owned by Asians in the District. “We got to do something about these Asians coming in and opening up businesses and dirty shops,” Barry said in remarks first reported by WRC-TV. “They ought to go. I’m going to say that right now. But we need African-American businesspeople to be able to take their places, too.” Barry, who won't be opposed in November's general election as he seeks his third consecutive...

    Six black men assaulted a white man outside a restaurant in Seneca, S.C. on March 17 after insulting him with a racial remark. Such was the severity of the beating and obvious racial motive that local police have referred the case to federal officials. However, contrary to their usual reaction in such matters, the national media have yet to jump on the case, and civil rights leaders have said nothing about it. The leftist media’s and “civil rights” groups' silence on the subject stands in sharp contrast to their handling of the tragic killing of Trayvon Martin on Feb. 26...

    "At this point in my life," says Audrey, age 39, "I thought I'd be married with children." A native of southeast Washington, D.C., and the child of parents who are approaching their 50th wedding anniversary, Audrey seems like the proverbial "good catch"—smart, funny, well-educated, attractive. Audrey earns a good living, too, with an income from management consulting that far surpasses what her parents ever made. Her social life is busy as well, filled with family, friends and church. Only about one in 20 black women is interracially married; they are much less likely than black men to cross the race...

    I’m trying to pick-up the habit of using my Thursday blogging for humor, using pop-psych as the theme. Unfortunately, I’m new enough to this great-big-bloggity-world that the habit hasn’t quite stuck yet. So, when I read an Essence editorial by Jill Scott today, courtesy of that #1 news aggregator, Drudge, my humorous idea for good dose of post- racial therapy ran smack into the wall of a pretty ugly reality. Ms. Scott is an accomplished artist but at this point that is about the highest mention I can give her. Although, I should probably congratulate her on accomplishing something that...

    The hubbub over the Tiger Mom model presented in a recent best-seller left some recalling the stereotype of the Jewish mother. But what happens when couples are Asian and Jewish? Asian-Jewish couples share remarkably similar values — but they’re not rearing their children like Tiger Mother Amy Chua, a new study reports. Noah Leavitt and Helen Kim — a married couple and both sociologists at Whitman College in Walla Walla, Wash. — interviewed 37 Asian-Jewish couples over two years. The families lived in Northern and Southern California, Philadelphia and New York City. They included Asian-American men married to Jewish women...

    Americans nationwide are evenly divided over the issue of same sex marriage. But Republicans in Mississippi are divided over a wholly different wedlock issue: interracial marriage. In a PPP poll [pdf] released Thursday, a 46% plurality of registered Republican voters said they thought interracial marriage was not just wrong, but that it should be illegal. 40% said interracial marriage should be legal. Gov. Haley Barbour, with a home state advantage in Mississippi, also topped PPP's survey of the GOP primary field at 37%, followed by Mike Huckabee at 19%, and Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich at 10%.
