  • Lawsuit claims GM plant had nooses, 'whites only' signs and managers did not stop racism

    It took 14 months for the noose to show up. Fourteen months where Marcus Boyd says he endured racist comments, slights, even threats in a hostile workplace run by General Motors. A workplace where people declared bathrooms were for "whites only," where black supervisors were denounced as "boy" and ignored by their subordinates, where black employees were called "monkey," or told to "go back to Africa." A workplace where black employees were warned a white colleague's "daddy" was in the Ku Klux Klan. Where white workers wore shirts with Nazi symbols underneath their coveralls. In Ohio. In 2018. All those...

    President Donald Trump, following the recommendation of a national commission on school safety chaired by Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, will repeal the Obama administration's "Dear Colleague Letter" on school discipline. The letter, issued in 2014, advised school superintendents nationwide that racial disparities in suspension rates would be grounds for finding school districts in violation of federal anti-discrimination law, and therefore at risk of losing federal funding. The directive, cast as a "guidance," in fact formalized a fundamental shift in the Department of Education's approach to civil rights enforcement. Prior to the Dear Colleague Letter, the standard held that civil...
  • MSNBC's Wallace Lamely Claims 'There Isn't a Strain of Racism on the Left'

    On Tuesday's Deadline: White House, MSNBC host and former Republican Nicolle Wallace was in denial about the existence of racism within her new home on the left as she ridiculously claimed that "there isn't a strain of racism on the left." Her comments came during a discussion of Iowa Republican Congressman Steve King's flirtations with white nationalists that have drawn condemnation from fellow Republicans. But the MSNBC host was overlooking several facets of racism that exist on the left that the dominant liberal media typically ignore.

    On Friday's News One Now on TV One, substitute host Michelle Bernard presided over a panel in which one guest asserted that the push to repeal ObamaCare by Donald Trump supporters is fueled by a desire for "eugenics" against minorities to bolster "white supremacy." She further claimed that there was a desire to "eliminate" and "annihilate" minorities. Neither host Bernard nor even the token Republican on the panel voiced any disagreement with her incendiary claims.

    GARDEN CITY, Long Island (WABC) -- A former New York City teacher who was fired for teaching a demonstrative lesson on slavery announced Thursday she intends to sue the New York City Department of Education and many others for $1 billion. Patricia Cummings, of Farmingville, Long Island, says a school investigation found that there was no proof that she placed her knee in the back of a student while teaching the lesson. According to Cummings, she had her students at William W Niles School/MS 118 in the Bronx sit close together on the floor last January to show them how...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y) criticized CBS News Saturday night for what she considered lack of diversity in its team of reporters covering the upcoming 2020 presidential election. “This WH admin has made having a functional understanding of race in America one of the most important core competencies for a political journalist to have, yet [CBS News] hasn’t assigned a *single* black journalist to cover the 2020 election,” Ocasio-Cortez said in a tweet. “Unacceptable in 2019. Try again,” Ocasio-Cortez added.

    Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory revoked the honorary titles held by its longtime leader James D. Watson on Friday, describing as “unsubstantiated and reckless” his recent remarks about genetic differences in intelligence among racial groups. Dr. Watson, one of the most influential scientists of the 20th century, had apologized after making similar comments to a British newspaper in 2007. At the time, he was forced to retire from his job as chancellor at Cold Spring Harbor on Long Island, but he has retained his office there, as well as the titles of chancellor emeritus, Oliver R. Grace professor emeritus and honorary...

    State of Oregon ^ | 01/11/2019 | DENNIS RICHARDSON
    Portland Public Schools (PPS) has an unacceptably high achievement gap of 53% between white and African-American students. This gap is far worse than the state average. There are also troubling gaps in student achievement for students who are Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, Hispanic/Latino, or economically disadvantaged. My team’s recent audit of PPS revealed a system that is grossly underserving low-income students and students of color. This is not acceptable in Portland, or anywhere. Every Oregonian should be alarmed and angered by these findings. Our kids deserve better. High Funding But Low Results Despite higher funding and lower poverty rates than most...

    A race row has broken out in South Africa after health officials advertised for 100 new doctors, but did not allow white medics to apply for specialist roles. The health department in the KwaZulu-Natal province expanded its registrar programme for 2019 from 314 to 414, but aimed to fill the new posts with only black candidates. Health bosses said the move was implemented to redress the country's historical racial imbalance of Apartheid that saw most high-ranking positions filed by white doctors.

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez branded Donald Trump's border wall 'a campaign fantasy' and said he has a track record of discrimination against non-white people. The newly sworn-in congresswoman spoke of the 'dysfunction that the President is advancing' in the offices on Capitol Hill as the Government shutdown continues with no sign of a breakthrough. Ocasio-Cortez gave her reaction following Trump's address to the nation on The Rachel Maddow Show tonight.

    The tragic case of Jazmine Barnes has relit the fires of racial animosity thanks to the media and the investigating law enforcement on the case. Jazmine’s mother and other witnesses identified a white man as the culprit and the sheriff’s department immediately released the details and sketches. Professional outrage activist Shaun King wasted no time in crying racism and stirring up animosity under the guise of fighting race-based crime. Days later it was discovered that Jazmine’s killer wasn’t white but a black man - perhaps two. In the chaos of the incident people had identified a man they saw speeding...

    Newly sworn-in House Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said on Sunday that there's 'no question' whether or not Donald Trump is a racist. Ocasio-Cortez, the Democrat who stunned the political world by winning her party primary last year against an establishment politician, was asked by Anderson Cooper of CBS' 60 Minutes whether she believed the president 'is a racist?' 'Yeah. Yeah. No question,' Ocasio-Cortez replied. 'When you look at the words that he uses, which are historic dog whistles of white supremacy,' Ocasio-Cortez said.

    When I was younger, I wanted to be like Khadijah James when I grew up. She had a really “black”-sounding name like mine, ran her own magazine business, was not too girlie, remained down for the people, achieved what she wanted, was loyal to her friends and had a fine man. She was also fictional. But that just made it better: The actress who played her on “Living Single,” Dana Owens, better known as Queen Latifah, was from New Jersey — just like me. Today I laugh at my early-90s notion of making it. Yet, at its core, it never...

    Former NFL player Burgess Owens said socialism and Marxism are pushing an “anti-white” and “anti-American” agenda that’s hurting the black community. Burgess was discussing the NFL’s ratings boost as national anthem protests begin to fade and said America is fighting for its soul. ... “The biggest takeaway from the last two years — we are in the fight for the heart and soul of our nation,” Burgess said Friday on “Fox & Friends.” “We are fighting for our American, Judeo-Christian values and we’re fighting against a very evil force of socialism and Marxism that destroy everything they come close to....

    As regular readers likely know, I’m generally a fan of any story that gets PETA up in arms. But in this case, I came to the headline in question needing a lot more information. It involves a report of a protest by a comedian named Tiffany Haddish. Despite the fact that I’m a big fan of standup comedy and watch plenty of comedians’ specials, I’d never heard of her. It turns out she’s been featured quite a bit and appeared in some movies I’d never seen, but I somehow missed her act up until now.This tale doesn’t have anything to...
