  • New frontiers in hypersensitivity:State Department officer says‘holding down the fort’is racist

    John M. Robinson, the Chief Diversity Officer at the U.S. Department of State, wants America’s diplomats to know that common phrases and idioms like “holding down the fort” are, in fact, deeply racist. Robinson, who also serves as director of the Department’s Office of Civil Rights, used his “Diversity Notes” feature in the July/August issue of the official “State Magazine” to examine the hateful roots of everyday sayings. In one recent public relations kerfuffle at Nike, Inc., he wrote, the company torpedoed a sneaker called the “Black and Tan.” “What a wonderful celebratory gesture and appreciation for Irish culture. Not!”...

After seeing several posts over time mentioning the slow performance, I wanted to be sure to give you kudos for whatever tweaks you did. Cheers, knewshound

    A Democrat is poised to take the reins of power in Washington, D.C., and Fresno resident Jim Robinson is feeling a sense of deja vu. It was President Bill Clinton's 1992 election that sparked Robinson's political activism, driving him to create a Web site that made him a grass-roots leader among conservatives before Clinton's term was over. This year, as Barack Obama prepares to sweep into office on another tide of Democratic votes, Robinson and denizens of that Web site,, are preparing to do battle again. "We'll double and redouble our efforts to fight for what is right," Robinson...

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A convicted serial killer is facing the death penalty again. Wednesday, a federal grand jury in Kansas City indicted 62-year-old John E. Robinson in the death of Suzette Trouten. Robinson is on hold for lethal injection in Kansas. He was convicted in Trouten's murder in Kansas state court and he received the death penalty. But the statute used to convict Robinson was struck down by the Kansas Supreme Court in December 2004. Now, federal prosecutors are taking on the case. "Justice demands the ultimate penalty for the ultimate crime, and in this district, we're going to...

    John Robinson’s Farewell Letter to the Pilgrims Loving Christian friends, I do heartily and in the Lord salute you all, as being they with whom I am present in my best affection, and most earnest longings after you, though I be constrained for a while to be bodily absent from you. I say constrained, God knowing how willingly, and much rather than otherwise, I would have born my part with you in this first brunt, were I not by strong necessity held back for the present. Make account of me in the mean while, as of a man divided...

    Project Homestead backers rail against media GREENSBORO — A group of prominent black leaders and politicians warned Monday that Project Homestead will collapse unless the News & Record ends its “negative publicity” of the nonprofit, low-income housing builder. “It is virtually impossible for Project Homestead to continue to operate in this climate,” said state Rep. Alma Adams, a Greensboro Democrat who led the press conference held by the “Friends of Project Homestead” at Homestead’s former headquarters on Martin Luther King Drive. “The newspaper is intent on destroying this organization,” declared state Rep. Earl Jones, also a Greensboro Democrat. News &...
