    Even in marketing efforts, the racist quality of milk is emphasized: "Early milk promoters associated the whiteness of milk with the putative purity of racial whiteness," Freeman writes. Freeman's academic paper, "The Unbearable Whiteness of Milk: Food Oppression and the USDA," looks at the broader issue of "food oppression" as well, noting that "food oppression is a difficult concept for many to embrace because of the powerful rhetoric regarding personal choice that is endemic in the United States."

    MSNBC's facelift over the past two years has cut the airtime of some of its most prominent minority personalities - and it is starting to be noticed. The National Association of Black Journalists expressed concerns about MSNBC's record in the wake of the noisy exit of weekend host Melissa Harris-Perry. The network said Thursday that it is proud of its diversity effort and noted that people of all ethnicities have seen their roles reduced or eliminated as part of a transition to more breaking news coverage. Harris-Perry, who is black, had been proud of bringing new voices to television on...

    In one of the most exhaustive and damning reports on diversity in Hollywood, a new study finds that the films and television produced by major media companies are "whitewashed," and that an "epidemic of invisibility" runs top to bottom through the industry for women, minorities and LGBT people. A study to be released Monday by the Media, Diversity and Social Change Initiative at the University of Southern California's Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism offers one of the most wide-ranging examinations of the film and television industries, including a pointed "inclusivity index" of 10 major media companies -- from Disney...

Now that we have had time to observe the Donald Trump phenomenon, there is enough evidence to make a clear assessment of what it represents. The rise of Trump is an epic expression of frustration with the American political system, and it is a natural outgrowth of frustrations with Americaís changing demographics; the hollowing out of white working class values and culture, as Charles Murray has documented extensively; and what life is like when governed by...

"The goal of the protest is to send a message to the Academy, send a message to Hollywood, send a message to the film industry," said Earl Ofari Hutchinson, head of the LA Urban Policy Roundtable group.

    Forget the possibility of the enemy at the gates. The enemy has breached the gates. The enemy is within. The enemy is in Washington, D.C., and in Ferguson, Missouri. The ideology that has grabbed a hold of Ferguson is the same one that destroyed Detroit. Black Nationalism. Imagine mixing a little Marxism, a generous portion of Islamism, and throwing in bits and pieces of class envy, class warfare, and a compromised version of Christianity that Jesus Christ would fail to recognize, stir it all together with a generous portion of anger and hate thrown in, and youíve got Black Nationalism.

    The hospital said Mr. Duncan had been cared for by a team of 50 doctors and nurses 24 hours a day. It said Mr Duncan was not given the experimental drug ZMapp because the manufacturer hasn't got any more stocks and he was not given a blood transfusion from an Ebola survivor because he was a different blood group. Details of his care were released as Duncan's nephew launched a renewed attack on the Dallas hospital, claiming his uncle had received inferior treatment. Josephus Weeks told MSNBC: 'He is a poor black man. He had a very deep accent coming...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Have you heard this? A couple members of the Congressional Black Caucasians -- one of them is Elijah Cummings, the other one is Emanuel Cleaver -- are running around, and they are saying that their constituents (who would obviously be African-Americans) are asking them if the Secret Service is purposely letting people in the White House because Obama's black and they don't care as much about protecting him. You know where that story is? That story is in the -- dadelut dadelut dadelut, wait for it -- the New York Times. So the crowd at Zabar's this...

    ďWhether they wear blue jeans or blue uniforms, criminals must be held accountableĒ Civil rights leaders called Thursday for the federal government to intervene in criminal investigations into the deaths of two unarmed black men killed by police. Officials from the National Urban League, the National Action Network and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People condemned the law enforcement response to both the cases of Michael Brown, who was shot by a Missouri police officer on Aug. 9, and Eric Garner, who died after being held in a chokehold by New York police earlier this summer. A...

    ST. LOUIS (AP) ó Lamont Jones and Keith Stephens stood 60 feet from each other, separated by four lanes of pavement and a thousand miles of perception. Stephens was wearing a T-shirt printed with a police shield bearing the phrase "OFFICER DARREN WILSON I STAND BY YOU," as part of a rally supporting the white policeman who killed the unarmed black teenager Michael Brown. Jones was across the street, holding up a sign that said, in blood-red letters: "Darren Wilson is a Murderer." There was no overlap in the facts as seen by Jones and Stephens at the demonstrations staged...

    The U.S. government and society need to recognize the direct connections between continuing racial disparities in this country and the wrongs that gave rise to them. ... One of the most important aspects of successful transitional justice, therefore, lies in illuminating not only the victimsí suffering, but the ways in which an entire society continues to bear the burdens of history.

    Until we get rid of the race baiters, the virus will continue to destroy lives that would otherwise be rich and full and successful In 1984, I lived in North Philadelphia. At that time (I have not been back for several years, so I canít speak of the areaís current status), the area was almost entirely populated by black and Hispanic residents. Iím white, by the way, and there were literally weeks that went by when I didnít see another white person in my neighborhood. I grew up in a small town in Idaho. I had a few Hispanic, Native...
