  • Black Like Us: The Race Clownery of Obama-Biden

    Looks like Vice President Joe Biden has been taking extracurricular Democratic jive-talking lessons. The results of condescending liberals' cynical racial pandering attempts are, as always, seismically cringe-inducing. At a campaign event in Danville, Va., the gaffetastic veep dropped his g's and picked up a bizarre twang in front of an audience of black voters. Middle-Class Joe swapped his Home Depot apron for an A.M.E. preacher's robe and sermonized about the big, bad GOP. Romney's "gonna let the big banks once again write their own rules," Biden shouted. "Unnnn-chain Wall Street," he exclaimed with pulpit bravado. "They're gonna put y'all back...

    Few words have been more popular in recent years than "diversity." And few concepts have been more destructive. Destructive of our social fabric, destructive of our moral well-being, destructive of our ability to make judgments. In schools, non-profits and government programs across the nation, diversity has been held up as a great and noble prize. Some objective to be fought for and given prominence. It has become the top priority in institutions from colleges to corporations. And it has become a philosphy handed down like the word of god from the pulpits of education, business and government. And yet it...
  • Republicans and Democrats Did Not Switch Sides On Racism

    National Black Republicans ^ | Monday, June 18, 2012 | Frances Rice
    As a result of unrelenting efforts by Democrats to shift their racist past onto the backs of Republicans, using the mantra: "the parties switched sides", a lot of people have requested an article addressing this issue. It does not make sense to believe that racist Democrats suddenly rushed into the Republican Party, especially after Republicans spent nearly 150 years fighting for black civil rights. In fact, the racist Democrats declared they would rather vote for a "yellow dog" than a Republican because the Republican Party was known as the party for blacks.

    AUGUST 9--In an embarrassing screw-up, Florida prosecutors today accidentally distributed a post-mortem photo of Trayvon Martin as well as copies of George Zimmerman’s college records, material that Florida law considers confidential and exempt from disclosure. The documents were inadvertently included in supplemental discovery records distributed this morning by prosecutor Angela Corey’s office. The material was sent to a variety of media outlets, including TSG, that have paid fees to receive discovery provided by the government to Zimmerman’s lawyer.

    LA TIMES ^ | 8/9/12 | David Lauter
    President Obama appeals to women by pushing the issue of access to contraceptives, while Mitt Romney accuses him of watering down welfare reform — an issue that tends to stir up feelings about race among whites. With the election still locked in a near-tie, the politics of gender and race have moved into the spotlight of the presidential campaign. For most of the summer, the debate has focused on two things: the state of the economy and Mitt Romney's background in business. But in recent days, the two campaigns have added new, sharp-edged issues to the mix.

    The real election in the city of St. Louis occurred last Tuesday when Missouri held its Democratic primary. Six primary races pit white Democrats versus black Democrats, including high-profile races for U.S. Congress, the state senate, three state house races and sheriff. Like most major cities, the general election here is a foregone conclusion. Republicans haven't been a force in city politics for more than a half-century. In fact, you'd have to time-travel back to the misty mid-1940s before you could find a Republican occupying the mayor's office. St. Louis's last GOP mayor was a lawyer named Aloys Kaufmann, who...

    Color is the bugaboo that we just cannot escape – even and especially when it should be the least important thing discussed. Which brings me to the discussions that the ignorant, race-mongers are having pursuant to Gabby Douglas. Miss Douglas has won two gold medals at the London Olympic Games. But in her case, winning two gold medals isn’t enough. The obligatory focus on the color of her skin by the politically correct, is sickening, but the ridicule she is receiving from blacks punctuates the statement made by Rev. James Manning that “black people are honorless, incorrigible idiots.”

    Regardless of the electoral outcome, the possibility of civil unrest should not be discounted.Our societal divide has become a widening and deepening chasm to the point that regardless of who wins the presidential election civil unrest seems increasingly likely. I wrote here about the Civil War of 1861 - 65 and here about the constitutional implications and causes of that war. Should violence follow the November election, the conflagration and its context will be very different. It will have less to do with North versus South or with our few remaining States' rights.

    Gallup has just released Barack Obama’s job approval rating for the first half of 2012, broken down by state, and the news is not encouraging for the president. Obama’s approval rating is below 50 percent in 37 states, ranging from a 26 percent rating in Utah to a 49 percent rating in Michigan. Obama is at 50 percent or higher in just 13 states, from a 50 percent rating in Minnesota to a 63 percent rating in Hawaii. The president is most popular in Washington DC, where his job approval rating is an astonishing 83 percent.

Indeed, it is in part because I am black that the following must be said. All things considered, blacks and the civil rights culture surrounding them are the most open and prolific purveyors of racism in America. This is an ironic travesty which spits upon the graves of history’s abolitionists...

    The meaning of "racism" has changed for the worse. There was a time when the adjective "racist" was properly applied to those who based their judgments, words and deeds on race. People and organizations are now characterized as "racist," or not, with little regard to what they think, say or do. "Racist" is now rarely applied to those who rely on, and actively seek to foster, racial hatred and to seek political and financial gain by doing so; perhaps that is because most who do it (and it has become quite fashionable) are in the Librul camp. They apply the...
