    A few days before President Trump’s Twitter rant against four congresswomen of color, a few thousand progressives gathered in Philadelphia to hear speakers exhort them to make race a central issue in the 2020 election. “We’ve got to center racial justice,” Rashad Robinson, the executive director of Color of Change, told the Netroots Nation conference. Robinson told the audience that “racial justice is a strategy for gaining power and winning power.” Robinson represents a left wing of the party that wants to confront Trump’s demagoguery on race and identity head on, not shying away from the topic. “Democrats for years...

    LAS VEGAS — Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Ind., on Saturday directly confronted one of his biggest vulnerabilities as a contender for the Democratic presidential nomination: running as a white man who has led a life of relative privilege at a time when many in his party are eager for a woman or a minority candidate to become their next leader. Speaking at a fund-raiser for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender causes, Mr. Buttigieg drew on his own experiences as a gay man in a predominantly straight society. But he also rejected the idea that “there are equivalencies”...

    Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren is escalating her call for Democrats to end the 60-vote requirement for many major bills to clear the Senate if her party wins the White House and Republicans try to block their agenda. The 2020 Democratic presidential candidate is set to speak Friday at the National Action Network convention in New York. According to her prepared remarks, she will say that “the filibuster was used as a tool to block progress on racial justice.” …

    The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is a “highly profitable scam” that “never lived up to the values it espoused,” according to former SPLC staffer Bob Moser. The New Yorker on Thursday published a scathing essay from Moser, now a Rolling Stone reporter, accusing the left-wing non-profit of “ripping off donors” while turning a blind eye to sexual harassment and racial discrimination within its own ranks. The SPLC fired co-founder Morris Dees on March 13 over unspecified conduct issues. The SPLC announced Dees’ firing after roughly two dozen SPLC employees previously signed a letter to the organization’s leadership expressing their...

    Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris said Thursday that there should be a federal moratorium on executions. The senator from California discussed the matter on National Public Radio, a day after Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom of California granted reprieves to 737 death row inmates and signed an executive order placing a moratorium on executions. Harris was asked if there should be “a federal equivalent” to Newsom’s order. She said, “Yes, I think that there should be.” […] She noted that black and Latino defendants were more likely to be executed than white defendants, as were poor defendants with poor legal representation...

    Several Ole Miss basketball players knelt during the national anthem Saturday afternoon, before a game against the University of Georgia that was played about a mile away from a Mississippi pro-confederacy rally. Hundreds of Confederate 901 and Hiwaymen protestors marched through Oxford, Mississippi at the same time the game began, according to Clarion-Ledger reporter Nick Suss, who was live-tweeting the event. Counter protestors joined the march through the University of Mississippi campus, according to Suss.

    This year's Super Bowl was a relatively blasé affair by most accounts. The Patriots won for the six time in its career. There were no memorable commercials except for a "Twilight Zone" reboot tease and an ad celebrating 100 years of the NFL. The halftime show was pretty underwhelming except for a jarring "Spongebob Squarepants" transition. The one good thing that anybody could say about the game is that there were barely any politics throughout the proceedings. Barely. About an hour before the game proper started, Al Sharpton gave an accusatory address to the NFL and its fans on MSNBC's...

    Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) said Sunday that President Trump is a racist. "This country hasn't dealt well with issues of race. We have a president who's a racist," Brown, who is considering running for president in 2020, said during an interview on NBC's "Meet the Press." Host Chuck Todd then pressed Brown over whether he believes that Trump "in his heart" is a racist. Brown pointed to Trump's past claims that former President Obama wasn't born in the U.S. and allegations that he discriminated against black people as a real estate owner. "I don't know what 'in his heart' means....

    Baltimore’s top prosecutor has filed a rarely used legal petition intended to vacate 3,778 convictions for possession of marijuana, arguing an extraordinary legal strategy is necessary to “right an extraordinary wrong.” In a highly unusual “Maryland v. Maryland” filing in state court, State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby used a petition called “writ of error coram nobis” that allows a court to reopen cases when substantial error is found that wasn’t apparent in initial judgments. The petition, if granted, could wipe out thousands of pot possession convictions. Mosby’s arguments are based on what she paints as an opportunity to achieve retroactive justice...

    Kamala Harris, that vaunted self-righteous feminist candidate who's using her 'year of the woman' chops to challenge President Trump in 2020, has a little problem: She slept her way to the top. You know, the mistress thing, not exactly moving on up based on hard work or merit, that little advantage of good looks, employed to their optimal practical use. Her political patron, former lawyer to pimps, Mayor of San Francisco, and State Assembly Speaker Willie Brown, admitted he helped her get her political start, writing in his bloggy San Francisco Chronicle column: Yes, we dated. It was more than...

    California Sen. Kamala Harris announced Monday that she will run for president in 2020, joining an increasingly crowded field of Democrats seeking to challenge President Donald Trump. Harris' announcement, made on "Good Morning America," comes following months of speculation surrounding the Democrat, a rising star in the party who was elected California's junior senator in 2016 after two terms as the state's attorney general. "I love my country. I love my country," she said. "This is a moment in time that I feel a sense of responsibility to stand up and fight for the best of who we are."

    Imaginary Tyranny: As POTUS Donald Trump soldiers on in his quest to Make America Great Again, the unhinged Left continues to see things that normal, rational people aren’t seeing. Like tyranny and oppression. Like the destruction of the Constitution. Like officially-sanctioned racism, as if Trump were handing down edicts from the Oval Office instructing his federal bureaucracy to return America to the 1850s. It’s madness to even think POTUS is a bigoted, racist tyrant-in-the-making, let alone that he even wants to be. But that’s the state of the Left as Trump Derangement Syndrome courses through their veins like a virus....

    The story of five black women who were asked to leave a York County golf course for reportedly playing too slowly is making headlines and causing outrage across the country. The group of regular golfers said they were confronted at the second hole by Steve Chronister, one of the owners of the Grandview Golf Course and a former county commissioner, who accused them of lagging and offered to refund their money if they would leave. They were the only African Americans or all-female groups on the course in Dover Township, according to Sandra Thompson, who posted a detailed account of...

    In the days after white golf course owners called the police on five African American women they said were not playing fast enough, a Pennsylvania state senator has called for an investigation into the incident and the club is losing local business. On April 21, the women were told by owners and employees of the Grandview Golf Course in York County, Pa., that they were taking too long. The club offered to refund their memberships and then called 911.

    Netflix has inked a multiyear deal with the Obamas for original programming — but the content from the former First Couple will not have any political bias, according to chief content officer Ted Sarandos. “This is not The Obama Network,” said Sarandos, speaking Tuesday at the Paley Center for Media in New York. “There’s no political slant to the programming.” Sarandos was interviewed journalist Ken Auletta at the event. Noting that the Netflix exec is a Democrat, Auletta asked what he would say to Republicans about Netflix’s seeming push to the political left — including the appointment of former Obama...

    DETROIT (AP) — A black 14-year-old boy who got lost in a Detroit suburban neighborhood while trying to get to school was shot at by a white homeowner after knocking on a door to ask directions, prosecutors said Friday, citing home security video and the account of the boy. Jeffery Zeigler, a retired Detroit firefighter, was arraigned Friday on charges including assault with intent to murder. Oakland County sheriff's deputies were called to Zeigler's Rochester Hills' home about 8:20 a.m. Thursday after a woman told 911 that her husband had chased a black male who tried to break in.
