  • Lib Writer Suddenly Discovers She’s Part White; Does This INSTANTLY…

    It’s pretty gross but very effective. Recently, a HuffPo contributor found out that her background wasn’t 100% African American like she thought. Turns out she is part white. Cue the meltdown… You see, her whole life, Chistine Michel Carter had been told that she was Black and Native American, so when she found out that her Native American heritage negligible, she was pretty confused. Further complicating matters was the fact that the DNA test also told her that she was 31.5% European, which Carter said made her feel “shame” and “disorient.” “Of all the emotions which materialized from the results,...
  • New evidence on the political views of mixed-race adopted and step-families

    Not surprisingly, there is no statistically significant left-right political differences in the proportion of adopted or step-families that are in mixed race households. Indeed, among families with step-children or adopted children, 11 percent of conservatives were living in mixed race households compared to 10 percent of liberals living in mixed-race households. Similarly, 9.4 percent of Republicans living in step- or adopted families were in mixed-race households, compared to only 8.8 percent of Democrats in such families. (Again, this small advantage for Republicans is not large enough to be statistically significant). If one breaks things down further by both party and...
  • 11% of conservatives and 10% of liberals with adopted or stepchildren live in mixed-race households

    Among the 11 percent is tea-party favorite Tim Huelskamp, although as Ace notes, on Twitter that’s only further evidence of Huelskamp’s racism. If you’re into persecuting minorities, there’s no deeper deep cover than adopting kids who are minorities. It just proves how far you’re willing to go for the cause. This is interesting work by Jim Lindgren but it won’t change a single mind. Republican racism is a “political fact” whether or not it’s an actual one. Coming soon to MSNBC: “Whopping 89 percent of conservatives with step- or adopted kids have no family members from other races.”

    From NPR: "First thing that always pops into my head regarding our president is that all of the people who are setting up this barrier for him ... they just conveniently forget that Barack had a mama, and she was white — very white American, Kansas, middle of America," Freeman said.

    Are you a Conservative and not caucasion? Caucasion but married or in a relationship with someone who isn't? Have an immediate family member in a welcome and accepted mixed-race relationship? Speak up and rebuke the NAACP's charges of "racism" in the Tea Party movement, and amongst Conservatives in general, opposing the policies of the Obama Administration and Big Govt Statists everywhere. Show that Conservatives are the ones who have truly embraced Martin Luther King Jr's dream, that we judge others by the content of their character and NOT the color of their skin.And by the way, I still wish the...
  • It’s official: Obama is black

    He may be the world's foremost mixed-race leader, but when it came to the official government head count, President Barack Obama gave only one answer to the question about his ethnic background: African-American. The White House confirmed Friday that Obama did not check multiple boxes on his U.S. Census form, or choose the option that allows him to elaborate on his racial heritage. He ticked the box that says "Black, African Am., or Negro."

    On blogs and around kitchen tables across the country, mixed-race Americans are celebrating the fact that, for the first time, a biracial person, Barack Obama, will be a major party's nominee for president of the United States. Obama identifies as African American, and much has been made of the historic nature of his candidacy, which could make him the country's first black president. But he also frequently evokes his mixed heritage: his white mother from Kansas and his black father from Kenya. His presence on the national political stage is being embraced by multiracial Americans as an opportunity to focus...

         Who Are We? ― I Would Expect We Are Americans April 3, 2008 Not incredibly, in its recent article, Who Are We? New Dialogue on Mixed Race, the New York Times is now pandering to tribalism. Talk about reaping what you sow.... It’s little wonder why the stock price of the NYT has collapsed by 50% over the last 5 years while the value of the Dow Jones Industrial Average has increased by 50% in the same period. The NYT can’t even understand what being an American really means. When the Times ponders something as idiotic as, “Being accepted. Proving loyalty. (and)...
