  • Clinton and Obama, First Heal Yourselves on Race

    Hillary Clinton is the worst kind of political animal, one who will exploit anything for political gain, distort facts and shift her positions at will for votes, significantly more than your garden-variety pandering politician. Remember when Clinton was for the Iraq War and then later savaged anyone who believed as she had as if they were reprobates? Remember when she opined that marriage is between a man and a woman? Remember her claim that she left the White House "not only dead broke but in debt"? Her pathetically laughable yarn that she came under sniper fire in Bosnia in the...

    If America were a song, the killing of unarmed black people by the police would be a standard chord progression or rhythm, the sort of indistinguishable background noise that you hear so often you might not even notice it anymore. On Friday, in Tulsa, Oklahoma, a 40-year-old black man named Terence Crutcher had car troubles. The police approached him. Crutcher responded by putting his hands in the air. The Tulsa police used a Taser on Crutcher. A Tulsa police officer, Betty Shelby, then shot him dead. They left him bleeding in the street for almost a minute before rendering any...

    Posted September 16th, 2016 @ 11:01am in #Trump #Clinton #Birther Moments ago, Donald Trump acknowledged that Barack Obama was born in the United States. You all know that’s a big deal because Trump was the leader of the so-called “birther” movement, which critics called racist. But watch the festival of cognitive dissonance that happens today among Trump’s critics and the media. They need to explain why the birther thing was racist. What exactly is the reasoning for that connection? Jake Tapper says the connection between the birther movement and racism is so obvious that you would have to be “naive”...

    Georgetown will offer an admissions edge to descendants of slaves as part of a comprehensive atonement for the university's historical ties to slavery, its president announced Thursday. Those ties go back nearly two centuries, when the Washington, D.C., school sold 272 slaves and used the proceeds to pay off debt. Georgetown President John J. DeGioia will offer a public apology Thursday afternoon for the 1838 sale and will also outline what the university plans to do to acknowledge racism in its past. In addition to offering descendants the same preferential status in admissions that Georgetown currently offers children of alumni,...

Alex Walker, of the San Francisco Bay Area Independent Media Center, got the conspiracy ball rolling with the help of single quotation marks and a bit of idyllic prose: They are calling it a 'suicide.'

On April 22, 17-year-old Allen was arrested by the Bossier Sheriff's Office and charged with contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile and possession of child pornography.

Kayla McKelvey, 25, of Union Township, pleaded guilty to a single count of third-degree creating a false public alarm, acting Union County Prosecutor Grace Park said in a statement. In exchange for her plea, the prosecutor's office will recommend she receive a 90-day jail sentence, Park said. McKelvey, who is black, must also agree to pay $82,000 in restitution for the police response and investigation of the threats.

There is no comprehensive list of such sites, and many have been destroyed. Still, in places such as Charlotte and Orange and Bedford and Hendersonville and Tuscaloosa, the ground undulates over those believed to have been slaves. There are places in the political landscape, too, where the ground shifts ever so slightly, where slavery has warped the electoral terrain. In the South, it seems, old prejudices have persisted.

    A person may not have to "see color" to be racist. Some blind people, just like sighted people, make judgments about others based on their race, according to a new study. The findings come from interviews conducted in person and over the phone with 25 people who were either born blind or severely visually impaired, or who lost their sight as children or adults. A researcher asked the participants, most of whom lived in the northeast United States, about whether they thought about race and also how it affected their feelings about a person.

    Regardless of what Democrats and the media say, White Privilege is hogwash. The word privilege means “a special right, advantage, or immunity granted or available only to a particular person or group of people.” Privilege is, therefore, not based on accomplishment but rather something given by another person of entity. The most glaring example of Black Privilege is that which is enjoyed by Barack Obama. He is at best an incompetent fool but more properly an enemy of America who Black Privilege status keeps him from being described this way. In almost every walk of life from schools to workplaces...

    In the latest chapter of the left’s ongoing campaign to immortalize the grandfather clause of social justice, but more specifically to compensate America along racial lines, comes the politically convenient creation of “White Privilege”. Because the word “racism” obviously doesn’t denote enough singular intent to indict white America as the sole purveyors of hate, victimization has now evolved into blaming the pale subjects of suburbia as the greatest impetus for urban crime, poverty, civil unrest, and societal division. If “White Privilege” is truly designed to infer advantage or favoritism, then why did I grow up in a blue collar home,...

It was not enough that the Department of Justice had exonerated former officer Darren Wilson. No–the mob, told by President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder that Ferguson was still guilty of racism, wanted “justice.”

As we all remember, immediately following the shooting of Michel Brown in the St. Louis County community of Ferguson Al Sharpton rolled into town with his one-man circus and fanned the flames of racial unrest. Unrest...

    A day after it was announced that the U.S. Department of Justice is unlikely to pursue a civil rights case against ex-Ferguson, Mo., Officer Darren Wilson, a Black conservative sheriff David Clarke (pictured) has applauded the decision and slammed civil rights leaders in a Fox News interview, according Mediaite. RELATED: Report: No Federal Charges To Be Filed Against Darren Wilson In Death Of Michael Brown Milwaukee County Sheriff Clarke told “Fox & Friends” Thursday that the decision not to pursue a civil rights case against Wilson was vindication for the officer and an indictment against “race hustlers” like U.S. Attorney...

    Kenya Barris, creator of ABC’s “black-ish,” was motivated to write the comedy about an African-American family’s efforts to honor its heritage in part by the unreality of what he grew up watching on television. “I saw ‘Friends’ and ‘Seinfeld’ and thought, ‘What part of New York is this?’” recalled Barris, who is black. “It’s not about being diverse. It’s about being true to the world.”His show comes 15 years after civil rights groups, galvanized by a lineup of new network series almost entirely devoid of minority characters, sought and ultimately won agreements from major broadcasters to put programs on the...

    “In the time of Staten Island and Ferguson,” Sharpton said, “to have one of the most shutout Oscar nights in recent memory is something that is incongruous. The only category we’re well represented is in the best picture nomination and it’s a movie about blacks being shut out of society. And now we’re shut out of Hollywood.”

    The Rev. Al Sharpton was left fuming mad after the Oscars revealed its all-white list of nominees for this year's Oscar awards on Thursday. "The movie industry is like the Rocky Mountains, the higher you get, the whiter it gets," Sharpton quipped in a statement released later in the afternoon. Sharpton, a critic of the lack of diversity in Hollywood, also announced he was holding an "emergency meeting" next week to address the issue. "I have called an emergency meeting early next week in Hollywood with the task force to discuss possible action around the Academy Awards," he said.

    I have been putting off writing this op-ed piece for the past several months hoping in vain that our President and Attorney Eric Holder would become real leaders and not continue down the racist road they have been traveling. However the most recent police murders in New York City have prompted me to break my silence. I did not vote for President Obama when he first ran nor did I vote for him in 2012. When he was first elected I hoped that as a person of color he would move race relations forward and become a good, if not...
  • That’s it Obama: Go Wrap Yourself in a Dead Cop

    Let’s make one thing absolutely clear at the outset: Neither Barack Obama nor Bill De Blasio ever considered a political action they didn’t respect. These guys are all politics, all the time. If any of their kids got killed they’d figure out how to do a fundraiser off of it or run a campaign. And if that’s an exaggeration then the burden of proof is on them to disprove it. Because we have ample evidence that they lack the normal human decency that tells the rest of us when we have gone too far. Exhibit One from the White House...

    I'm not one for boycotts, but I am one for data. And I like this kind of data. It's just good to have data when spending money. That's all. I mean, if I have no choice in keeping a SIGNIFICANTLY large portion of my money from being squandered by the folks that I've freaking employed up on the Hill (like drunk girls on Spring break with their Daddy's credit cards), I'm going to be as informed as possible with what's left of said money. Thus, the data thing. You know. According to the source article above and the New York...
