  • In Reply to a Beloved Black Christian Brother Regarding the Kavanaugh SCOTUS Nomination

    Christian Post ^ | 07/18/2018 | Darrell B. Harrison
    I recently came across an article on Christianity Today by John C. Richards, Jr., a self-described "Christian person of color", entitled 'Brett Kavanaugh Is a Troubling Supreme Court Pick For Black Christians'. As the article's title suggests, Richards is expressing concern over the potential impacts the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court by President Donald J. Trump might have on black Christians in America. The commentary was penned as a reply by Richards to an article written by Dr. Ed Stetzer, who supports the Kavanaugh nomination. Richards, who, according to his article, has partnered with...

    Ten Washington University students, all black and all incoming freshmen, were stopped by Clayton police this month while walking to a MetroLink stop from a late-night dinner and told they were suspected of leaving the IHOP restaurant without paying, university officials said. Even though some of the students had receipts showing they had paid for their meals, police made all of them walk three blocks back to the restaurant, with six squad cars following them. At the restaurant, the manager told officers the students were not those who had left without paying...

    Papa John’s pizza founder John Schnatter resigned Wednesday as chairman of the board after he apologized for using a racial slur during a conference call in May. After news of Schnatter’s use of the N-word during a training call, Major League Baseball indefinitely suspended its Papa Slam promotion with Papa John’s, Yahoo Sports reported.

    A week that began with reports that Papa John’s founder Papa “John” Schnatter somehow worked an overt hard-r racial slur into a conference call with a marketing company is ending with the removal of Schnatter’s name from virtually everything on which it had previously been emblazoned. There are only so many of these left at this point, but the University of Louisville announced on Friday that it would begin the work of prying Papa’s brand off their football stadium and, uh, The John H. Schnatter Center for Free Enterprise at the Louisville College of Business. He had already withdrawn from...

    The New York Yankees have joined the growing list of businesses which are distancing themselves from Papa John's. The club released this statement Friday afternoon: "In response to the reprehensible remarks made by Papa John's founder and owner, the New York Yankees are suspending their relationship with the company." Papa John's founder John Schnatter resigned as chairman of the board on Wednesday, hours after Schnatter apologized for using a racial slur during a conference call in May.

    Major League Baseball is doing its best to cut all ties with Papa John’s and its racist founder, with Derek Jeter and the Miami Marlins leading the charge. A recording of John Schnatter using the N-word was uncovered by Forbes on Wednesday, and the ex-CEO stepped down shortly after.

    Papa John’s founder John Schnatter resigned as the company’s chairman on Wednesday night after fallout over his use of the n-word during a conference call. ... Schnatter used the n-word on a conference call in May. The call was specifically designed as a role-playing exercise to prevent future public-relations disasters. “Colonel Sanders called blacks n—–s,” Schnatter said, before complaining that Sanders never faced public backlash...

    Screen Rant ^ | July 6, 2018 | Cooper Hood
    Margot Robbie is hoping to have a diverse cast around her for Birds of Prey. One of the DCEU's greatest strengths so far is the diverse nature of their lineup. Jason Momoa's Aquaman, for example, is very different from the traditional Arthur Curry look. However, they've also been a prime example of giving females starring roles and seeing the success that can come with it. Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman is their highest grossing and best critically received movie. Meanwhile, Suicide Squad introduced Robbie as Harley Quinn, and the film still made over $700 million at the box office despite a...

    Campus Reform ^ | July 6, 2018 | Marina Jaimes and Benjamin Whittington
    Students at Iowa State University encountered a new form of arboreal activism on campus this week in the form of a “Tree of Oppression” funded by the student government. According to the images obtained by Campus Reform, the tree was located on campus and appeared to have several multi-colored plastic chains wrapped around its trunk and branches. The political display was also accompanied by a “tree of oppression” sign that explained the message behind the initiative.

    Breitbart ^ | 7-4-2018
    Young white Americans are fleeing the Democrat Party en masse following the election of President Donald Trump in 2016, a new poll reveals. The latest Reuters/Ipsos Poll surveyed more than 16,000 registered voters between the ages 18 to 34 over the course of the last three months of 2018. This same poll was conducted in 2016 around the same time period. Young white Americans, in 2016, favored Democrats over Republicans in 2016 by a 47 to 33 percent margin. Since Trump’s election — and his booming economy which has secured high-paying jobs and record job opportunities — young white Americans’...

    Amy Wax, a University of Pennsylvania law professor, has come under attack and scathing criticism because she dared criticize the school's racial preferences program. In an interview with Brown University economist Glenn Loury, discussing affirmative action, Wax mentioned how racial preferences hinder the ability of blacks to succeed academically by admitting them into schools at which they are in over their heads academically. At UPenn's seventh-ranked law school, Wax said, she doesn't think that she has ever seen a black law student graduate in the top quarter of his class, and "rarely" is a black student in the top half....

    The Detroit Tigers have just issued a press release saying that they have fired pitching coach Chris Bosio, citing “insensitive comments that violated Club policy and his Uniform Employee Contract.” The comments are not specified, but I’m sure we’ll be hearing more about them later. Jason Beck reports that the comments were made to a team employee.

    Washington Post ^ | June 27, 2018 | Michael Scherer and David Weigel
    The newest star of the Democratic Party, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, launched her New York congressional campaign by declaring “women like me aren’t supposed to run for office” — a jarring embrace of her distinction as a 28-year-old Latina less than a year removed from a job tending bar. Her campaign slogan: “It’s time for one of us.” That appeal to the tribal identities of class, age, gender and ethnicity turned out to be a good gamble, steering her to the nomination in a year when Democratic voters are increasingly embracing diversity as a way to realize the change they seek in...

    And you will know her name. A day before Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, 28, clinched her remarkable Democratic primary victory in New York's 14th Congressional District, she took a moment to note how she was being described in the political press. "A Girl Has No Name: Headlines from the Political Patriarchy," she tweeted. In the tabloids and on some local television stations, she was, over and again, simply Rep. Joe Crowley's "primary opponent."

    Britain’s prison population is at its lowest in eight years thanks to new government rules which have boosted early releases by more than 50 percent in the last six months. Ministry of Justice figures show that the number of inmates put on home detention curfew (HDC) has risen to 3,304 from 2,196 in January when ministers told prison guards to increase their use in order to free up space in overcrowded jails. This increase was reported as the primary factor in the prison population falling more than 1,500 in six months to 82,694, which is the lowest figure since January...

    You probably think your opinions matter. You probably think you’re an individual with unique experiences, thoughts and ambitions. Well, I hate to break it to you, but according to current leftist orthodoxy, you’re wrong. You see, your opinion only matters relative to your identity—and where that identity ranks on the hierarchy of intersectionality. If you’re now thinking, “What the hell are you talking about?” you haven’t spent much time on a modern college campus. Intersectionality is a form of identity politics in which the value of your opinion depends on how many victim groups you belong to. At the bottom...

    I thought white people were evil. I was wrong. Whenever anyone mentions the historical atrocity of chattel slavery, white people will emerge from the dark crevices of humanity to gnaw away at the assertion like roaches on a discarded Cheeto. They will explain how most white people didn’t own slaves. They will offer a convoluted explanation about the Confederacy and Southern heritage. They will introduce the concept of “presentism”—the idea that we shouldn’t judge the actions of people in the past using modern-day standards—as if the white people of the past couldn’t quite grasp the idea of inhumanity and brutality...

    Penn Law Professor Amy Wax has become a controversial figure because of her politically incorrect comments advocating in favor of bourgeois values and the WASP culture from which they stem, and in her claims that black students had generally performed at lower levels than other students in her classes in context of a conversation about the downsides of affirmative action -- comments that got her ousted from teaching the first year civil procedure class for which she had previously won an award for "teaching excellence." Professor Wax and I touched on her beliefs regarding bourgeois values, the comments on race...

    The 17,000 individuals named in the NYPD’s gang registry are 99 percent black or Latino, Chief of Detectives Dermot F. Shea revealed this week, according to the Juvenile Justice Information Exchange. Shea, testifying Wednesday before the City Council’s Committee on Public Safety, was talking publicly for the first time about one of the department’s most popular crime-fighting tools. He said the database is 65 percent African Americans, 24 percent non-white Hispanics, and 10 percent black Hispanics. He said the average age of those included is 27 and that 1,460 of those listed are younger than 18.

    A white man confronted a black female swimmer at a ritzy California hotel’s pool on Monday, questioning whether she bathed before taking a dip, according to video of the incident. The man insisted he was perfectly within his rights to ask such an intrusive question at the Westin Hotel in Pasadena, footage posted Wednesday by the woman, Texas resident Carle Wheeler, showed.
