    Last week, Captain Ron Johnson of the Missouri State Highway Patrol was chosen by Governor Jay Nixon to “coordinate law enforcement agencies” in their response to rioting and civil unrest after the shooting of Michael Brown by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson. “I’m a man first, a black man second, I’m a husband, I’m a father, I’m a son. A trooper? There’s a lot of things I am before I’m a trooper, said Johnson to the assembled news networks. He sounded very much like AG Eric Holder who, upon arriving in Ferguson for no apparent reason other than political race...

    Attorney General Eric Holder said Wednesday that he understands why many black Americans distrust the police as he made a one-day swing through the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, Mo., where a black teenager was fatally shot by a white police officer almost two weeks earlier. Holder made the comments during a meeting with about 50 community leaders at the Florissant campus of St. Louis Community College in which he heard about their own issues with law enforcement officials. Ferguson has endured more than a week of unrest since the August 9 death of 18-year-old Michael Brown, who was shot...

    The left, the race batters, and this administration want a particular narrative about Ferguson, and they have a willing and abetting media to help make it happen and maintain it. Simply put...that's why this incident is lasting so long in the media. This Ferguson narrative of a white cop deliberately executing an unarmed black teenager who was just walking down the street continues their race touble propaganda, distracts from the much more serious issues of the day, and they hope will give them political cover for the fall election. This Ferguson narrative also has no basis whatsoever in the...

    The Brown family legal team discussed the independent autopsy conducted on Michael Brown, the unarmed teenager who was shot by a Ferguson police officer over one week ago. The attorneys said that the autopsy report was consistent with eyewitness accounts that Brown was attempting to surrender, and that the back-to-front path of the two head shots should have led to the arrest of the officer. Attorney Daryl Parks said that the two head shots, one of which was considered not survivable, both entered from the top of Brown’s head and exited out the front, one through his forehead and one...

    The Obama administration has done little to calm racial tensions as they spread from Manhattan to St. Louis to Los Angeles. Quite the opposite, some top officials have fueled African-American fears of racism with false accusations of anti-black discrimination. Attorney General Eric Holder’s race-baiting is no secret. Justice Department documents show the nation’s top cop gave thousands of dollars to help the Rev. Al Sharpton organize marches protesting the death of Trayvon Martin. Now he’s sent the civil-rights unit to St. Louis to do the same thing in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown. Less known, however, is the role...

Yes, the man who once race-baited by pretending that Trayvon Martin was his own son, now dead and gone, is definitely the father of this version of our country. The likeness and resemblance is too striking for him not to be. Congratulations Daddy! “On Wednesday night,” reports the New York Times, “scores of police officers in riot gear and in armored trucks showed up to disperse protesters [in Ferguson] who had gathered on the streets near...

    In March, the Senate filibustered Obama’s pick to be the nation’s top civil rights lawyer because of election-year politics — and what’s happening in Missouri is unlikely to change that. The Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division, which has been tasked by Attorney General Eric Holder to help lead an investigation into the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, has been without a confirmed leader since July 2013. And because of Congressional gridlock and election-year politics, it’s likely that the civil rights department will not get a confirmed assistant attorney general any time soon.

    For white America, confronting its own racism is a lot like attitudes surrounding the virus that can lead to AIDS.Witnessing the death of Eric Garner, at the hands of uniformed police in New York City, got me to thinking about racism in America. This African-American man was confronted by police for selling single, probably-untaxed, cigarettes on the street. When the man resisted, he was held in a chokehold – a practice deemed unlawful for over 20 years – which was horrifyingly caught on tape. The man was obese and carried no firearm, yet he was wrestled to the ground and...

    By now you've probably seen the reaction to Tuesday night’s Mississippi Republican Senate primary election, in which shaky incumbent Thad Cochran eked out a victory over Tea Party insurgent Chris McDaniel by making use of some rather unconventional electoral tactics.Cochran dedicated most of his efforts to pursuing Democrats, and specifically the black community. He went so far as to threaten his new voting base by saying McDaniel would cut food stamps,and made conspicuous charges of racism against both McDaniel and the Tea Party. There were further allegations, substantiated in news reports, of “street money” paid to Democratic fixers to turn...

    The vast majority of Americans are not racist. In fact, minorities in this country enjoy legal protections not found in many other countries, and the American spirit of pulling oneself up by the bootstraps is pretty much the gauge by which the population lives. It is absurd, for example, to cry racism (Al Sharpton) when millions of white men rabidly cheer for mostly black professional sports teams. In 2008, the country even elected a black man as president. So it is with bitter irony that we note the escalation of race baiting at the highest levels of politics and media....

And squarely behind that movement, the film argues, are the Koch brothers.

    Calling someone a "racist" used to mean that a person disliked certain people because of their skin color. Today, MOST OF THE TIME, it means something entirely different. Now, if someone is better and smarter than a liberal, a liberal cries "white privilege." If a liberal is failing and he doesn't know what to do about it, he yells "racism." If a liberal doesn't know how to counter your argument, he calls it "racist." If liberal can't counter your political argument, he screams out "bigot." So, if you're conservative, it's almost a backwards compliment at this point. "You're just...

They were able to dismiss the 55 percent of voters who passed Proposition 209, which barred race and gender preferences in university admissions, hiring and public contracts in 1996, as over-entitled fear-obsessed white folks with little understanding of and sympathy for the obstacles that daunt minority students. That ended Monday when California state Sen. Ed Hernandez was forced to put a hold on a measure to allow voters in November to restore racial preferences in public education.

Somewhere along the way he picked up a gold lined cape, a purple turban and a stepladder on which he used to stand while giving speeches outside the stores of Harlem's dwindling Jewish community. The cape and the turban were combined with Nazi style military shirt and jackboots, for the quixotic uniform of a man who is remembered today as a pioneering labor leader-- but was known back then as the Black Hitler. {snip}

    Liberal CNN commentators lashed out at Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas on Tuesday for stating that he received worse race-based treatment from New England liberals than from fellow Georgians during his youth in the 1960s. “The worst I have been treated was by northern liberal elites,” said the justice. “The absolute worst I have ever been treated.” (1) Thomas had prefaced his comment with the recollection that race “rarely came up” while he was a child in the deep South. “In the mid-60s, when he was a kid, you could get killed if you were a black person for speaking...

    … I don’t know who that white woman dancing with Chubby on the Huckabee show was, whether she was in the civil rights movement too, but I sincerely doubt she was any kind of racist. White people loved to dance to Chubby back then—and eventually with Chubby. Soon enough white people were dancing with black people and Latino people and Asian people. I know I was—and most of my friends were too. I had a Puerto Rican girlfriend, a Chinese-American girlfriend and a Ghanaian girlfriend. (Okay, I had a lot of girlfriends.) Nobody cared. And nobody should. Yet racism is...

    On MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry this morning, the host apologized for remarks she made on her show last weekend, a story first broken here at The Right Scoop. She apologized "without reservation or qualification" to the Romney family, and very emotionally to interracial families everywhere: ... So the only group due an apology yet to hear one, and who will almost certainly never hear one, are Republicans across the nation, who are caricatured and characterized as obviously racist every single day, based solely on their party affiliation. Unfortunately, as we'll show later today in a follow-up post, the racist assumption about...

    Come on, Oprah. You're way too smart to be this stupid. When are you going to get off this kick about Barack Obama being disrespected more than previous presidents just because he is a black man? It's getting embarrassing, Oprah. You're one of America's great talents and greatest success stories. You're a self-made billionaire, an astute multimedia mogul, a beloved cultural icon. You're admired around the world for your generosity and good works. Your opinions and endorsements influence what millions of people read, how they think and who they vote for. But after five years of President Obama's reign, you...

    President Obama's election was supposed to usher in an era of racial unity greater than any Americans had previously experienced. By making the historic move to place the first black president in the White House, Americans signified that they were ready to move beyond the racial conflicts of the past and move forward, arm-in-arm. At least that's what we were told. So much for that. In the last two weeks, MSNBC's Chris Matthews, official hot-air-trial balloon for the Obama administration's public relations strategy, has played the race card incessantly. First, he proclaimed that Republican New Jersey senatorial candidate Steve Lonegan...
