    ABC’s “The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg has joined fellow “View” co-host Raven-Symoné in rejecting the extremely racist term “African-American”. “You know what uh uh! This is my country,” Goldberg said. “My mother, my grandmother, my great-grand folks, we busted ass to be here. I’m sorry. I’m an American. I’m not an African-American, I’m not a chick American, I’m an American!”

    To meet the Obama administration's goal of "implementing a robust diversity strategy" at the Department of Defense (DOD), the agency's director of diversity violated government rules by distributing hundreds of thousands of dollars to controversial leftist groups. Adding insult to injury, a "consulting" firm gets nearly half a million dollars from the DOD to help distribute the money to groups--even those that don't qualify--that support the Pentagon's "diversity strategy and program objectives." Among the recipients is the notorious open borders group League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), Minority Access Inc., a Maryland-based nonprofit committed to decreasing disparities and reducing...

Aside from the fact that he's shown himself to be a sexist bigot, if Donald Trump isn't even perceptive enough to notice a seagull nesting on his head then how the hell can he run a country? Only the most racist and player-hatery of my White homies could possibly be pro-Trump. And if that's what you're about, then that's your business. But don't ruin the Presidential Elections for the rest of us this month. Keep it to yourself until March. Let us enjoy our last Black History Month with a Black president in peace.</p>

    Connecticut officers who drew their stun guns on the job last year were more likely to fire when the suspect was black or Hispanic, according to a first-of-its-kind set of statistics that could stoke the nation's debate over race and police use of force. The raw, preliminary data was obtained by The Associated Press ahead of an official analysis expected in the coming weeks. While police and state officials cautioned against passing judgment until then, at least one criminal justice expert said he would not be surprised to see similar findings elsewhere around the country. Some civil rights groups said...

    Records of all the officers involved in the Laquan McDonald shooting case could be destroyed by 2019 if the city of Chicago enforces the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) contract. Section 8.4 of the police union contract calls for all misconduct files to be destroyed five years after the date of the incident. "Does that say that these police officers can go to another jurisdiction and not have their past practices looked at?" asks Renell Perry, of the NAACP. The NAACP joins a number of organizations asking for the records to be preserved. To prevent the destruction of records dating...

The PRRI American Values Survey broke the data down further into racial and political demographics that show the disparity between responses. “Half (50%) of white Americans agree that discrimination against whites has become as big a problem today as discrimination against blacks and other minorities, while fewer...

While not naming her Democratic rival directly, Clinton said before the Charleston, South Carolina, branch of the NAACP Friday that talking about 'urban' gun violence, as Sanders did at the first debate, was simply code for 'black.' 'There are some who say that it is an urban problem,' Clinton stated. 'Sometimes what they mean by that is: It's a black problem. But it's not. It's not black. It's...

Lee, and General "Stonewall" Jackson be sand blasted off the side of Stone Mountain in Georgia. Chapter leader Richard Rose is telling local news outlets, "Those guys need to go." They can be sand-blasted off, or somebody could carefully remove a slab of that and auction it off to the highest bidder.

She described how, after graduating magna cum laude from Tuskegee University, she got wait-listed at every law school to which she applied because of her LSAT scores.
