    “Let’s just call a spade a spade. Tennessee is racist. Period,” Lamar said in the video. “Period. Like, Tennessee is racist.” There’s no subtly there… but to ensure clarity she specifically named “white people,” before proceeding to call them stupid. “Most of the Tennesseans who voted Republican are uneducated. So, they don’t even know that they showed up to the polls to vote against their own interest,” she added

    Friday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” former Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele called President Donald Trump’s proposal to end birthright citizenship via executive order engaging “in stupid at a level that we have never seen before.” Steele said, “It is better from Trump’s perspective to have a base that is angry and mad at someone other than him. It is sort of the 1950s racism that has been reintroduced into the body politic, and he is thriving on that. So, you know, a great jobs number, and wages going up, and tax cuts, and Supreme Court appointment s appointments,...

    ESPN personality Jemele Hill announced she would be leaving the company Friday. Hill's was an anchor for "Sportscenter," the network's signature program, before going to work with company website The Undefeated in January. Hill's departure came after she was briefly suspended last year for messages she posted on social media, including one calling President Donald Trump a "white supremacist." At the time, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Hill's comments were a "fireable offense." Trump also criticized her last year, saying she was the reason the network ratings "tanked." She announced her decision on her Twitter, mentioning that...
  • Trump’s ‘That Dog’ Attack Is the Latest in a String of Insults Aimed at Black People

    WASHINGTON — President Trump on Tuesday added his former White House aide, Omarosa Manigault Newman, to the growing list of African-Americans he has publicly denigrated on Twitter, calling her “that dog” and a “crazed, crying lowlife” in the wake of her allegations against him of mental deterioration and racism. Even for a president who consistently takes to Twitter to assail his adversaries, the morning tweet about Ms. Manigault Newman was a remarkably crude use of the presidential bully pulpit to disparage a minority woman who once served at the highest levels in his White House. The tweet reprised Mr. Trump’s...

    Dear son, You're still young. Young enough to decide what you want to do with your life with all options on the table. Your life will be your own. Your choices your own. I'm only here to offer my advice, my guidance. As such, I beg you, please never become a police officer. Allow me to explain. When I was a young boy, I held police officers in such high regard that, as corny as it was, I would actually stop and stand at attention and salute them whenever they rolled by in their patrol cars in Rahway. When they...

    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. Deputies...

"I was angry, sad, frustrated, and humiliated all at the same time. It was so emotional it's hard to describe. I know there is a lot of racism out there, but I have never been faced with it up close."

    “We’ve never really reckoned with the issue of race in this country. We just haven’t. It’s almost like the Civil War ended and kind of like the child in a divorce. Like, you know, a conflict-averse child. ‘Okay, okay, it’s over, let’s not talk about that ever again.’ And that’s obviously not what needed to happen.” What did need to happen? Apparently something of biblical proportions. “There needs to be a reckoning, a true one. And that’s how we’ll make progress, and move forward.”

    Get your popcorn ready, as Terrell Owens would say. Despite the controversy swirling around the Colin Kaepernick-inspired NFL player protests for racial justice, CBS Sports told Sporting News it will televise the playing of the national anthem before Thursday night's Packers-Bears game at Lambeau Field. "The anthem will be live," promised CBS Sports spokeswoman Jennifer Sabatelle. CBS is handling production on the game that will air on CBS Sports, NFL Network and Amazon Prime Video (8 p.m. ET). There were loud boos heard in the home stadiums of the Jets, Cardinals and Lions. Will the same thing happen tonight at...

    Almost everyone except those psychologically and politically dependent on accusing others of being racists can agree that racism is evil. I think almost everyone except those malignant defamers, who denounce all with whom they disagree as racist, can agree that all people are fundamentally equal and must be treated equally; that all definable groups of people are equal in their human merit; and that all such groups, unless they are defined by sociopathic goals, should be proud of whatever it is that defines them as a group. I cannot think of a more stupid and unjust reason for hiring or...

    It wasn’t a Cinco de Mayo party. It had no sombreros or tacos, as far as anyone knows. Yet the University of Chicago’s Phi Gamma Delta, known casually as FIJI, has nonetheless been reported for the “bias incident” of throwing a party where attendees wore construction outfits. Relevant to know: Its fraternity house has been “under renovation and construction for two years.” But activists don’t care about context. If the left-wing arbiters of cultural appropriation get their way, FIJI’s members could face disciplinary action. The Chicago Maroon reports that the party was originally scheduled for May 5, but its start...

"Jim Crow might be dead," Jeffries said at the beginning of his speech. "He's got some nieces and nephews that are alive and well, and a few of them are running around 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue." The audience laughed and cheered in agreement with Jeffries' claim.

    Rev. Al Sharpton is not happy with what he perceives as the White House's special treatment of President Trump's daughter. . . . "Giving a office on the West Wing of Ivanka Trump, somebody explain to me how you can give security clearance, access to classified material, and a office to somebody that don't have a title or job?" Sharpton said. "They say now she ain't got no title. She ain't got no role. We ain't payin' her no money. But she can see everything classified."
