    An online petition has gathered more than 1,300 signatures on behalf of a popular Virginia high school teacher who was kicked out of the classroom earlier this month for using a racial slur. The petition claims history teacher Lynne Pierce, who is white, did nothing wrong when she uttered the “N-word” during a discussion with her students at Heritage High School in Newport News about racism, derogatory terms and the nickname of the Washington Redskins. Heritage is 90 percent black.

    In Texas, a 14-year-old girl was raped by a member of her own family and then beaten to induce abortion after he realized she was pregnant. The beating lasted six grueling hours and the teen told police that she was a virgin when she was assaulted. Additionally, reports reveal that the young girl was eight months pregnant when she was attacked. Now Dallas News reports that the four relatives involved in the induced abortion, Cedric Jones, Sharon Lee Jones, Lonnell McDonald, and Cecila McDonald have been charged with engaging in organized crime. Prior to the beating, Sharon tried to induce...

    'Piers who,' now? Constitution-denier Piers Morgan: Whites who use the N-word should be jailedYou may remember Piers Morgan as “that British guy used to have a show on CNN.” He famously challenged a certain Mr. Herman Cain to a debate after I wrote a few pieces about his moronic anti-2nd Amendment diatribes. At the time, he arrogantly waved around a copy of the U.S. Constitution and referred to it dismissively as “your little book.” Then his show was cancelled and he was, pretty much, never seen again. ...But here at “The Cain” we like to keep tabs on our old...

    Say this for the guy: It takes some Jedi-level trolling to make yourself part of another country’s national debate about racism after a mass murder when you don’t even count as a celebrity there anymore.I like that he calls for actual jail time, not a fine or parole or some other more ceremonial penalty. If we’re going to carve out First Amendment exceptions for thoughtcrimes, might as well be bold about it. What would I do with white people who use the N-word?

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK) President Barack Obama used the n-word during an interview released Monday to make a point that there's still plenty of room for America to combat racism. "Racism, we are not cured of it. And it's not just a matter of it not being polite to say nigger in public," Obama said in an interview for the podcast "WTF with Marc Maron.""That's not the measure of whether racism still exists or not. It's not just a matter of overt discrimination. Societies don't, overnight, completely erase everything that happened 200 to 300 years prior." The jarring comment comes as the nation...

    Most major media outlets try to cover up their ideology.  They still push it in articles, but they like to beat around the bush, speaking indirectly and acting a bit timid about pushing their real agenda because of its radical nature. But you don't see that kind of rhetorical hesitancy at the Huffington Post.  Their forces of radical progressivism are always the first to charge over the top of Brokeback Mountain, championing communism and the destruction of our culture and our nation-state, and always with a strong emphasis on sexual deviancy, as befitting a publication named after Arianna Huffington's...

    According to the latest census data, African Americans make up just over 13% of the US population. That means out of the 317 million people living in the USA, there are about 41 million blacks -- just over the total population of California. However, looking at the popular culture you'd never know that. Black music dominates popular music. Black culture is how most people define "cool." And most of all, what might offend blacks dominates popular culture, media, education, and entertainment. Fred Reed writes:

    Don’t Gimme An “N”: “Redskins” is nothing like the “N-word” by Daniel Clark If you’ve watched any media panel discussions about the Washington Redskins’ nickname, you’ve noticed that the typical, knee-jerk liberal response is, “Calling a team the Redskins is no different from calling it the N-word.” A more honest critic would stop to wonder why that’s never been done. It can’t be that people have been more sensitive about offending blacks than Indians. Back when many sports teams were given their nicknames, nobody would have guessed that a racial slur would one day be censored as “the N-word.” The...

Not like he has anything else to do, right? There’s nothing unusual about the president hitting the golf course – he’s done it at least a record-setting 177 times over his term. But it’s who he is playing golf with that’s interesting.

Lemon addressed the wounds inflicted by black males onto their community on his “No Talking Points” segment Saturday afternoon, saying he was able to bring this up now that the George Zimmerman trial had concluded. Before the verdict, right wing media had consistently asked why the “liberal media” was fixating on Trayvon Martin while ignoring rampant black-on-black violence, a “deflection,” in Lemon’s words, from the injustices of...

In the deposition, Deen acknowledges using the racial slur more than once "a very long time" ago. "This lawsuit has never been about the N-word," Jackson says in the statement, provided to CNN's Don Lemon by...

    Just how much of a hole did Paula Deen dig for herself? With the Food Network's announcement that it would not be renewing its contract with the Paula's Home Cooking star, along with QVC distancing itself from the celebrity chef and Smithfield Foods cutting ties with her altogether after she admitted to past use of the N-word and other hurtful remarks, it would seem that Deen's culinary empire is currently up in flames. But her bank account isn't under as much fire as one might think. Sure, her ranking as Forbes' No. 4 highest-earning celeb chef is definitely at risk...but...

    Television chef Paula Deen, who lost her gig Friday with the Food Network after admitting and apologizing for having used racial epithets, including the “N-word,” is a supporter of President Barack Obama, campaigning on his behalf in 2008 and cultivating a friendship with first lady Michelle Obama. Though Deen allegedly called Obama the “N-word” in front of her employees, according to a lawsuit, the Southern-bred television personality actually campaigned with Obama in 2008, invited Michelle Obama onto one of her television programs, and praised the first lady’s healthy eating agenda. …

    Celebrity chef Paula Deen was today sacked from her job at the Food Network despite begging the public for forgiveness over her past use of racial slurs in a heavily-edited video apology. A Food Network spokesman issued this statement today: 'Food Network will not renew Paula Deen's contract when it expires at the end of this month.' It came just hours after she released the 45-second video in which she says: 'I want to apologize to everybody for the wrong I have done. I want to learn and grow from this. 'Inappropriate, hurtful language is totally, totally unacceptable. I have...

    Paula Deen is again defending herself after an admission went public this week about her past use of the N-word. The celebrity chef has come under fire after a newly filed deposition revealed that she used the widely condemned racial slur years earlier. On Wednesday, her lawyer released a statement that said the Food Network star "does not condone or find the use of racial epithets acceptable." A day later, Paula Deen Enterprises released a new statement echoing that position. "During a deposition where she swore to tell the truth, Ms. Deen recounted having used a racial epithet in the...

    Libertarian Internet impresario Matt Drudge, who delights in mischief above all else, is no doubt enjoying the sh*tstorm he created Wednesday by splashing the N-word seven times in bold capital letters (spelled out except for substituting “*” for the “i”) at the top of his homepage. DRUDGE REPORT Matt Drudge from The Drudge Report. (Michael Caulfield/AP) Other than going for shock and awe, Drudge’s purpose wasn’t entirely clear, although he linked his repetitively epithetic headline to a film review of Quentin Tarantino’s latest violent mockudrama, Django Unchained, about a mid-19th Century former slave (played by Jamie Foxx) who wreaks...

    Vice-President Biden tells blacks, Romney’s “gonna put y’all back in chains.” Mitt Romney accuses Obama of running a campaign of “anger and division.” Then MSNBC host Toure charges Romney with engaging in the “niggerization” of Obama. WHAT? As my black father (note emphasis) said, “That’s the most unintellectual thing I’ve ever heard. Is he [Toure] making up words” ? Toure’s making up words and spinning fiction! (Evidently, that’s what a former musical journalist turned political pundit does.) If Biden had included the “n-word” in his me (white) versus “you blacks” statement, Toure may have expressed mild outrage at the remarks....
