  • Democrats and Racial Division

    Wall Street Journal ^ | November 30, 2018
    Democrats are taking racial politics to new heights—and no wonder, since the tactic has again succeeded. This week Republican Senator Tim Scott said he will oppose the nomination of Thomas Farr, tapped for a federal judgeship in North Carolina. Senator Jeff Flake is voting no to showcase his opposition to Donald Trump, and the two GOP defections are enough to torpedo Mr. Farr’s appointment this year. Mr. Scott cited legal work that Mr. Farr performed decades ago for North Carolina’s then-Senator Jesse Helms. After the 1990 election, the Justice Department accused Helms of trying to intimidate black voters by sending...

    Voters in Mississippi on Tuesday will decide a U.S. Senate special election runoff marked by racial controversy and capped by a last-minute visit by President Donald Trump to shore up the beleaguered Republican incumbent. Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith, a white former state lawmaker who was appointed to the seat in April, is still favored over black Democrat Mike Espy in the reliably Republican state, which has not sent a Democrat to the U.S. Senate since 1982. But she has been engulfed in a political storm since a video surfaced showing her praising a supporter at a Nov. 2 public event by...

    It's "cui bono?" in Latin. Francophones ask, "à qui profite le crime?" Whatever your linguistic leanings, the point is the same. If you're trying to figure out who committed a crime, figure out who benefits from it. Let's apply the principle to the racially-charged Senate run-off race in Mississippi, in which the African-American Dem, Mike Espy, faces Republican Cindy Hyde-Smith. One day before today's election, two nooses are found at the state capitol. So . . . who benefits? CNN's Joe Johns supplied the answer on this morning's New Day: "The President defending Hyde-Smith, and directly attacking her challenger, the...

    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,...

    During an appearance on NBC’s “Late Night” with Seth Meyers, film maker Michael Moore called on “angry white American guys” to “give it up” because their demographic time is over. “They are fanatical about this because they know their time is up. And it’s sort of the angry white guy, which actually — I’m really Trump’s demographic,” said Moore. “I’m an angry white guy over 50 with a high school education. So that’s me. So if I could just speak to my fellow angry white American guys who are semi-uneducated like me. Dudes, give it up. We’ve been running the...

    "This November 6 election is very much a referendum on not only me, it's a referendum on your religion, it's a referendum on free speech and the First Amendment. It's a referendum on so much," Trump told the assemblage of pastors and other Christian leaders gathered in the State Dining Room, according to a recording from people in the room. "It's not a question of like or dislike, it's a question that they will overturn everything that we've done and they will do it quickly and violently. And violently. There is violence. When you look at Antifa -- these are...

    Washington is bracing for a white nationalist rally [Unite the Right 2] that law enforcement agencies will try to prevent from descending into a melee like the one in Charlottesville, Virginia, that cast a shadow over Donald Trump’s presidency a year ago. .... Marking the anniversary on Saturday, Trump condemned “all types of racism and acts of violence,” a shift from his widely-criticized equivocation of 2017. ..... “I think there is blame on both sides,” Trump said during a press conference in the lobby of Trump Tower in New York. He added that the white nationalist protesters in Charlottesville included...

    Troublemaker: The “Rev.” Al Sharpton, like all of his race-baiting colleagues, long ago ceased to be a useful force for change in America. That’s because long ago — in the 1960s — our country adopted a series of civil rights laws and regulations cementing the Constitution’s promise of equal treatment and justice for all. But in 2018 Sharpton continues to pretend like our country has made no progress at all when it comes to civil rights, so every time there is an incident involving a black man killed by a white person, he has to show up and needlessly stir...

    Clinton aide called Comey 'a bad choice' for FBI director, leaked emails reveal WASHINGTON ? A senior aide to Hillary Clinton privately dismissed FBI Director James Comey as "a bad choice" in October 2015, according to hacked emails published Thursday. The blunt assessment foreshadowed the dramatic tension that has escalated between Comey and the Democratic presidential candidate in the final days before the election. Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri forwarded to colleagues a news article in which the FBI director suggested that crime could be rising because police officers were becoming less aggressive as a result of the "Ferguson effect,"...

    Kanye West wants freedom—white freedom. I could only have seen it there, on the waxed hardwood floor of my elementary-school auditorium, because I was young then, barely seven years old, and cable had not yet come to the city, and if it had, my father would not have believed in it. Yes, it had to have happened like this, like folk wisdom, because when I think of that era, I do not think of MTV, but of the futile attempt to stay awake and navigate the yawning whiteness of Friday Night Videos, and I remember that there were no VCRs...

    Starbucks is planning to follow up on its CEO’s promise to implement “unconscious bias” training by closing more than 8,000 company-owned stores across the U.S. on May 29 to conduct “racial bias training,” per a Starbucks news release. “I’ve spent the last few days in Philadelphia with my leadership team listening to the community, learning what we did wrong and the steps we need to take to fix it,” said Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson in the statement. “While this is not limited to Starbucks, we’re committed to being a part of the solution. Closing our stores for racial bias training...

    The biggest Black Lives Matter page on Facebook … was fake news. Citing “a review of the page and associated accounts and websites,” CNN reported Monday that the page titled Black Lives Matter “was a scam with ties to a middle-aged white man in Australia.” The official Black Lives Matter page (https://www.facebook.com/BlackLivesMatter) has less than 330,000 “Likes” and “Follows.” According to CNN, the Australian page had more than twice that many. Facebook had suspended the Australian page by the time of CNN’s Monday report, but only because, CNN claimed, “it had suspended a user account that administrated the page.” The...

    Trayvon sparked a movement that stands up to fascism and white supremacy. We need to hold him in our memories. February 5th marks five years and 339 days since Trayvon Martin’s memorial service; it would also be his 23rd birthday. The day is necessarily somber. Nearly six years ago, Trayvon’s death at the hands of white supremacist vigilante violence indicated the beginning of an escalating attack on Black lives and demanded that this nation confront its overtly racist past and present. The urgency of #Justice4TrayvonMartin turned into a global urgency to fight for Black lives — one which persists today....

    An FBI report on the rise of black “extremists” is stirring fears of a return to practices used during the civil rights movement, when the bureau spied on activist groups without evidence they had broken any laws. The FBI said it doesn’t target specific groups, and the report is one of many its intelligence analysts produce to make law enforcement aware of what they see as emerging trends. A similar bulletin on white supremacists, for example, came out about the same time. The 12-page report, issued in August, says “black identity extremists” are increasingly targeting law enforcement after police killings...

    The Washington Post editorial board slammed the Latino Victory Fund’s “vile” and “despicable” ad and chided Virginia Democrat gubernatorial candidate Ralph Northam for not calling out that ad featuring an Ed Gillespie supporter chasing down minority children. The Latino Victory Fund pulled their ad in the wake of a terrorist attack in New York City that featured a man running several people over with a truck and reportedly shouting “Allahu Akbar.” Cristobal Alex, the president of the Latino Victory Fund, said in a statement to Breitbart News, “We knew our ad would ruffle feathers. We held a mirror to the...

    Dressing children up as Disney's Moana this Halloween is racist, according to one parenting blogger. While parents should also think twice about letting their brood dress up as Elsa from Frozen because her character promotes 'white beauty'. Writing in her popular blog Raising Race Conscious Children, parent blogger activist Sachi Feris urged parents not to dress their children up as characters from backgrounds different to their own as it is 'cultural appropriation.'  Although many would see the strong-minded Moana as a perfect role model for their child, Feris said it's racially insensitive and risks parodying Polynesian culture. Describing her own discussions with her...

    Parents! Remember these rules for dressing your kids for Halloween: The Raising Race Conscious Children blog offered the following advice on how to have a white supremacist-free Halloween: 1. White parents who want to dismantle White supremacy have a special burden to check their entitlement on Halloween—and make sure that their children’s costume choices are not reinforcing a culture of racism. 2. Dressing up as a White person (from the dominant culture of power and privilege) is not cultural appropriation—but consider the development of children’s healthy racial identities on Halloween. 3. Halloween is an opportunity to have a conversation with...
