    He entered the White House a living symbol, breaking a color line that stood for 220 years. Barack Obama took office, and race immediately became a focal point in a way that was unprecedented in American history. No matter his accomplishments, he seemed destined to be remembered foremost as the first black man to lead the worlds most powerful nation. But eight years later, Obamas racial legacy is as complicated as the president himself. [] Perhaps most strikingly, the presidents successor, Donald Trump, is seen by many as the antithesis of a colorblind society, a one-time leader of the birther...

    The virus, and fear, took over the U.S. on Nov. 8, and this is how we ended up with Donald Trump as president-elect.The only photograph I have with James Alan McPherson is from the beginning of the Obama era; it turned out to be far more symbolic than I could have imagined. In the picture, Jims students flank him, a fairly mixed group of mostly smiling faces: three white women, two black men, a black woman, a Korean-American man, a white man. The lone white man in the workshop was named Roman, and his arm is crisscrossed with mine behind...

    Brandi Allen says she learned her son Brian Ogle had been beaten Friday night only moments after she caught sight of him while she drove by. "I wish I had stopped," she said.

Sylacauga police said investigators have met with Talladega County District Attorney Steve Giddens to obtain...

    The White House said Thursday that protesters angered by the fatal police shooting of a black man in Charlotte, North Carolina, are raising legitimate concerns about racial disparities in the criminal-justice system. Those are difficult questions that must be confronted, said White House press secretary Josh Earnest. They cannot be ignored. After a second night of rioting and confrontations with police in Charlotte, President Obama spoke by phone Thursday with North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory to receive an update on the situation. Mr. Earnest said the president wants authorities to ensure the safety of protesters.

    1. Both were in Dallas at the time of the shooting. July 7, 2016. Here's a video of Gavin "Cosmo" Long indicating he was in Dallas. It appears to be taken in a hotel room. He refers to "Europeans" as "devils" and the futility of non-violent protesting: 2. The Dallas shooter said he was "not affiliated" with any group. Cosmo posted a video he was "not affiliated": If he claimed to be part of a group, it would open the door to further investigation and conspiracy charges. 3. Cosmo lived in Houston.

    Beyoncé didn't bring back the Black Panthers when she and an Afro-frizzed dance team donned black leather jackets and berets during Super Bowl 50's halftime show. That's because the Black Panthers never actually left. The Panthers were more than militants; they were pioneers in American pop and political culture. The Black Lives Matter movement, the rise of social media, music and sports, even Donald Trump -- all were shaped by the Panthers in some way, historians and ex-Panthers say. On the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Black Panther Party, people are taking a second look at the group....

    Princeton University has become the latest school to be embroiled in a race scandal with 30 student's staging a sit-in inside their president's office. The Black Justice League (BJL) have told President Christopher L. Eisgruber they won't leave until Woodrow Wilson's name is removed from a college and international affairs school, and a mural to him in a dining hall is demolished. The group believe the former President, who led the formation of the League of Nations and helped all women get the vote, was a 'proud Clansman' who has a 'racist legacy'. They also want a 'cultural space' only...

    NY Times ^ | 9-4-15 | Editorial Board
    The Republican Party and its acolytes in the news media are trying to demonize the protest movement that has sprung up in response to the all-too-common police killings of unarmed African-Americans across the country. The intent of the campaign evident in comments by politicians like Gov. Nikki Haley of South Carolina, Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin and Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky is to cast the phrase Black Lives Matter as an inflammatory or even hateful anti-white expression that has no legitimate place in a civil rights campaign

    On his way to Alaska this afternoon, President Obama called Kathleen Goforth, the widow of the slain Texas Deputy Sheriff Darren Goforth who was shot and killed at a gas station while he was fueling a police cruiser. On behalf of the American people, I offered Mrs. Goforth my condolences and told her that Michelle and I would keep her and her family in our prayers, Obama said in a statement released this evening. Obama said that he promised Goforths widow that he would continue to praise bravery of police officers who served their communities.

    If we’re going to purge “The Dukes of Hazzard,” we might as well get Confederate flags out of American car culture entirely, I guess.For once, I think this is more than mindless corporate piggybacking on a social trend. According to a study done last year, NASCAR has a whiter audience than any other major American sport. Yes, really: At 94 percent, it’s even whiter than the NHL’s (slightly) and the PGA’s. Having the rebel flag in the infield won’t help change that. “As members of the NASCAR industry, we join NASCAR in the desire to make our events among...

    Singer Pat Boone has been one of the foremost voices of Christian conservatism in America for quite some time, and now the 1950s teen idol has spoken out yet again, this time on President Barack Obamas handling of the Charleston shooting. In an op-ed, Boone posited that the presidents insistence on labeling all crimes involving black victims racist ignored the true problem evil. As the president who came to office, a black man promising to bring people together, a man ideally suited for that job since you were born both black and white, you had a God-given chance to...

    A couple of days ago, I wrote about the difficulties Apple would face if it tried to censor the Confederate flag in its online stores. Unfortunately, the company - under Tim Cook's leadership - wasted no time in engaging in reactionary censorship of the Confederate flag in its app store. Touch Arcade and other sites are reporting that Apple has begun a ham-handed purge of the app store. The company has removed games and apps that include the Confederate flag: It's looking like Apple has pulled everything from the App Store that features a Confederate flag, regardless of context. The...
