  • Who Was Jim Crow and Why is He Calling Me a Racist?

    Jim Crow laws touched every part of life When All in the Family made its big splash back in the 1970s, I couldn’t see why it was supposed to be a comedy when it reflected the home I grew up in so closely. I looked for cameras outside our windows. Yet I bought into MLK’s vision of a color-blind America. I wanted and still want to see a land where people are judged by the content of their character instead of by any arbitrary circumstances, skin color, social class, nationality, or anything else. In the segregated South and the bigoted...

    Booker T. Washington In 1857, the Supreme Court, with seven of the nine justices being Democrat, decided that Dred Scott was not a citizen, but property. Chief Justice Roger Taney, appointed by Democrat President Andrew Jackson, wrote that slaves were “so far inferior … that the Negro might justly and lawfully be reduced to slavery for their own benefit.” After the Civil War, the 13th Amendment was adopted Dec. 6, 1865, abolishing slavery in America. Once Southern Democrats were forced to free their slaves, they attempted to effectively re-enslave them by passing “Black Codes” and “Jim Crow Laws” which...

    Since we are “cleansing” America of everything Confederate let’s start with the Confederacy’s successors: The Democrat Party. The Civil War was fought over slavery. Only duplicitous liberal apologists say otherwise and their presentations are not very convincing. The Civil War saw Union soldiers who were Republicans fighting and giving their lives to free the slaves held by Southern Democrats. During the War the Democrat Party in the North did everything it could to undermine the Union cause and committed countless acts of treason in order to keep Black people in chains. The Democrat mayor of New York City even tried...

    Summer is here, which means reviving the contentious debate over whether or not a favorite ice cream topping’s name has racist origins. “I’ve heard them called jimmies ... It’s after Jim Crow,” said Carly Fishkin, 25, who grew up in Wellesley and prefers to call them sprinkles. Her nearby friend, Izak Shapiro, also 25, agreed. They are two of many who have heard that the word jimmies has deeply racist connotations.

    Last month marked the 40th anniversary of the fall of Saigon, a moment vividly encapsulated by the frenzied scene of South Vietnamese desperately trying to reach the last helicopter on the roof of the American embassy. April was also the 150th anniversary of the surrender at Appomattox, when Robert E. Lee capitulated to Ulysses S. Grant, bringing the bloodiest fighting of the Civil War to an end.The two episodes seemingly have little to do with each other. But each, in its way, illustrates one of the bleakly recurring themes of US military history: When America's armed forces prematurely abandon the...

The Indiana governor has managed to step on an impressive number of parts of his own anatomy recently and in the process gravely injured what was already a long-shot ambition to run for president in 2016. Earlier this month he signed the Religious Freedom and Restoration Act in a private ceremony. In attendance were prominent opponents of gay marriage. In response, great algae plumes of righteous outrage erupted across the Internet. Gay-rights groups, the Democratic party,...

A war is being waged on democracy in America. Brazenly, with a smiling face, the Right is working to shore up the accumulated wealth and power of the 1% against any incursion by the voting hordes.

    This final installment exposes the hatred Democrats have for all minorities and for conservatives. It wraps up the argument for never letting these people be in charge of our lives. Jim Crow Laws When the Democrats were forced at gun point to free their slaves they passed new laws called Jim Crow laws which added subtlety to their oppression. The result of these laws brought about de facto rather than de jure slavery. From 1876 through 1965 the Democrats did whatever they could to destroy the hopes and dreams of African Americans living in the old Confederacy. They made racial...

    A string of leaks to the media protecting Darren Wilson are part of a very big problem. Here's the sordid history. On those rare occasions when it makes a real effort to grapple with the raw brutality of Jim Crow, the American mainstream media usually returns to a particular set of images that, by their very nature, are jarring and extraordinary: the burning cross, the hangman’s knot, the Klansman on horseback. This isn’t a bad thing; you can’t understand Jim Crow without understanding the significance of the Klan, for example. But it’s not an entirely good one, either. The problem...

They would be burning the homes of gang members. They would be fighting for the single black mother who is facing up to three years in prison for deciding to defend her life with a firearm. In short… They would be rampaging against the morally bankrupt hustlers of victimhood and dependency. Or, to put it another way, they would be voting...

    Throughout my life, I have been impacted by the work of Martin Luther King and others as they worked to bring equality to people of my race. It is interesting, however, the way in which people interpret the events that have brought us to this point. Most importantly, as the nation marks the fiftieth anniversary of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, there is much about this historic piece of legislation that has been forgotten or deliberately misrepresented. Few contemporary American students may remember that its supposed champion, President Lyndon B. Johnson, left office under the cloud of the increasingly unpopular...

    Recently former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice added her voice to those who have long been urging the Republican Party to reach out to black voters. Not only is that long overdue, what is also long overdue is putting some time — and, above all, some serious thought — into how to go about doing it. Too many Republicans seem to think that the way to "reach out" is to offer blacks and other minorities what the Democrats are offering them. Some have even suggested that the channels to use are organizations like the NAACP and black "leaders" like Jesse...

Those who used this analogy, though, either do not understand RFRA, do not understand Jim Crow, or both. The opponents claimed it would have allowed business owners to deny gays access to public accommodations. A Christian Post analysis of the bill concluded that was not true. In a letter sent to Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) before she vetoed the bill, 11 law professors,...

    For example, one will virtually never hear that the Palmer Raids, Prohibition, or American eugenics were thoroughly progressive phenomena. These are sins America itself must atone for. Meanwhile, real or alleged “conservative” misdeeds — say McCarthyism — are always the exclusive fault of conservatives and a sign of the policies they would repeat if given power. The only culpable mistake that liberals make is failing to fight “hard enough” for their principles. Liberals are never responsible for historic misdeeds because they feel no compulsion to defend the inherent goodness of America. Conservatives, meanwhile, not only take the blame for events...

Children are also taught that Jim Crow was banished by legal reforms such as the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the 1954 Supreme Court decision Brown v. Board of Education. Yet in one important part of American life, Jim Crow...

    A progressive foundation and a labor union have combined to pour millions of dollars into a “racial justice” group that was hostile to voter ID laws during the 2012 campaign season, according to a conservative watchdog group in Wisconsin. While True the Vote and other right-leaning campaigns were promoting ID requirements for voters and monitoring the implementation of ID laws at the state level, the Applied Research Center (ARC) was pushing back with claims that photo ID requirements at polling places were thinly veiled expressions of racism. Media Trackers, the conservative Wisconsin group, reported Monday that the W.K. Kellogg Foundation,...

    The Supreme Court heard arguments Wednesday in the latest battle over racial discrimination in the college admissions process. The case at hand centers on Abigail Fisher, who was denied admission to the University of Texas at Austin but claims her grades and extra-curricular activities were far superior to those of students chosen ahead of her. Why? Fisher said it’s because she is white and was a victim of the university’s preference toward minority students. School leaders do not deny using race as a criterion but will not say how much of a factor that is in their admission decisions. Last...

    “For more than 200 years, our party has led the fight for civil rights, health care, Social Security, workers’ rights, and women’s rights.” — from a history of the Democratic Party, on DNC Web site. A number of readers asked about this brief (20 paragraphs or so) history of the Democratic party, especially the first sentence. It certainly appears to ignore the party’s long and troubled history with race, literally leaping from the “200 years” phrase to 1920, when the women’s suffrage amendment was enacted. The Web history mentions the leadership of President Woodrow Wilson in helping pass the 19th...

    University of Colorado to segregate dorms for students with concealed-carry gun permits Two University of Colorado campuses will soon feature dorms that allow students over 21 with gun permits to live. Currently, firearms are banned in all on-campus housing facilities. The University of Colorado said it is going to begin segregating students with valid gun permits when assigning on-campus housing. Two CU campuses - the main campus in Boulder and another in Colorado Springs - will establish a designated residential area for students over the age of 21 with gun permits, school officials told the Denver Post. In any other...

    The Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia, in Michigan, US, contains a vast range of posters, toys and signs depicting shocking stereotypes of African American people. It includes outdated theories of evolution, instructions on how to “black up” for the theatre and even a full-size replica of a lynching tree. The collection, which makes for extremely uncomfortable viewing in the modern day, is said to be the largest of its kind in the world. It was amassed by the founder and curator of the museum David Pilgrim, who began collecting the pieces as a teenager.

    As a result of a racialized criminal justice system, black folk are disproportionately stripped on their right to vote, denied participation on juries, and discriminated against for employment and housing. Those most in need of assistance are denied public housing, food stamps, access to education, and any number of other resources for restorative support. With no job, no house, no food, and no allies is it any wonder that there is a 70% recidivism rate? Every year, our legal system robs millions of the achievements made by the heroes of the Civil Rights movement.

    When the Civil War ended, and after Republican President Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves, Democrats initiated Jim Crow laws to keep the black man down. Democrats didn’t much like blacks. In fact, the KKK, as you know, was founded as the the terrorist wing of the Democrat Party. Setting the Record Straight A group of black activists led by Wayne Perryman has filed a brief against the Democrat Party for its long history of racism and discrimination of the black community.

    On Martin Bashir's television program this afternoon, Democratic strategist and MSNBC analyst Karen Finney said that Republicans are supporting Herman Cain because of his race: One of the things about Herman Cain is, I think that he makes that white Republican base of the party feel okay, feel like they are not racist because they can like this guy," Finney said. "I think he giving that base a free pass. And I think they like him because they think he's a black man who knows his place. I know that's harsh, but that's how it sure seems to me."

    I grew up in the deep South and once, when I was going to high school, I went to a friend's party. A couple dozen of us were hanging around downstairs, enjoying ourselves, when we found out that the father of the girl who was throwing the party wouldn't let a kid into his house because he was black. You may be wondering if there was any other motive. Maybe the kid mouthed off, he was dressed like a thug, the two of the them had some kind of run-in before...none of that was true. The father was just a...

    Back in the day, if students wanted easy credits, they signed up for underwater basket-weaving. Now they just need a political cause. The University of California, Berkeley is offering students college credit to work for an expressly political organization fighting for affirmative action and immigrant rights. This semester, the African Studies department at Berkeley is offering a two-credit class called “Fighting to Learn, Learning to Fight: Building the Movement for Public Education and Equality.” The class is sponsored by BAMN — The Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, Integration, and Immigrants Rights And Fight for Equality By Any Means Necessary —...
