  • Justice Sotomayor and the affirmative action bitter-enders have lost bigtime(Warning-graphic image)

    The American public has woken up to the folly of trying to end racial discrimination by practicing it, dooming affirmative action to a slow death, and the racialist left is not taking the news very well. That is the only conclusion to draw from the extraordinary dissenting opinion yesterday by Justice Sonia Sotomayor in Schuette v BAMN, the case in which the Court upheld Michigan’s law outlawing racial preferences in state-funded higher education. Sotomayor took the unusual step of reading the dissent aloud from the bench, indicating her vehemence. Justice Sotomayor’s dissent was actually longer than all the other opinions...

    Republicans “still can’t bring themselves to admit that the Affordable Care Act is working,” President Obama told a news conference on Thursday. He also took aim at states that have not expanded their Medicaid programs:“This does frustrate me—states that have chosen not to expand Medicaid for no other reason than political spite. You got 5 million people who could be having health insurance right now at no cost to these states—zero cost to these states—other than ideological reasons they have chosen not to provide health insurance for their citizens.”But some governors, pointing to President Obama’s own broken promises, simply don't...

    U.S. President Barack Obama speaks during a visit to Bladensburg High School April 7, 2014 in Bladensburg, Maryland. Last weekend, I appeared on Melissa Harris-Perry’s weekend MSNBC show to discuss my cover story on racial politics. It was … not quite what I expected. The segment lasted 12 and a half minutes, and Harris-Perry spent almost half that time on an extended soliloquy about how I am wrong, only allowing me to join the discussion about my story for the second half. There was also a panel following that segment, consisting of four panelists who agree with Harris-Perry and none...

    Last week, the president's lap dog blew his dog whistle. In case you didn't know, in politics a "dog whistle" is coded language that has a superficial meaning for everybody, but also a special resonance for certain constituencies. Using dog whistles lets politicians deny they meant to say anything nasty, bigoted or controversial. Speaking to the National Action Network the day after a testy but racially irrelevant exchange with Republican members of a House panel, Attorney General Eric Holder said, "The last five years have been defined ... by lasting reforms even in the face of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly and...

    So "Racism" once more stalks among us! The Obama administration and its congressional minions are in full-court press style on the topic. The country's president and chief magistrate asserted the other day at a political rally put on by, of all racial demagogues, Al Sharpton that poor people and black people find it harder than ever to vote. Along came Atty. Gen. Eric Holder with his own tale of racial woe. A Republican-dominated House committee had roughed him up, he thought. "What attorney general," he asked the same political gathering, "has ever had to deal with that kind of...

"People need to realize, if you're a young faculty member, in a lot of places if you're a young member of a news department and you have the wrong views – meaning conservative – you have no career," Gingrich said on "This Week with George Stephanopoulos."

    Until this month, supporters of racial preferences in California have enjoyed a cozy narrative. 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. It was a huge about-face. His Senate Constitutional...

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}

    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.

Actually, Sharpton claimed that Pagones had raped Brawley, anally raped Brawley and then scrawled the initials "KKK" on Brawley's torso in feces. "We stated openly that Steven Pagones did it," Sharpton proclaimed. "If we're lying, sue us, so we can go into court with you and prove you did it. Sue us — sue us right now." Pagones sued. Pagones won. But Sharpton never apologized and had his supporters foot...

Now leading the city of about 175,000 is Chokwe Lumumba – who has a long history of radical activism and whose plans for the largest city in Mississippi could be called “revolutionary.” A co-founder of the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement, which promotes black “self-determination,” Lumumba was sworn...

The perpetrators were black teenagers, who admitted they were “bored” and decided to kill Mr. Lane for “the fun of it.” The case has garnered massive international media attention. Mr. Obama’s response: silence. He refuses to speak out on the issue. Contrast this with the Trayvon Martin case. The president publicly denounced the killing of the 17-year-old black teenager prior to the trial of the shooter, George Zimmerman. In fact, Mr....

However, now that racism has been largely relegated to the fringes of American society (the KKK, the New Black Panthers, the Nation of Islam, La Raza, MEChA, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, American Nazi Party, etc.), the Democrats are constantly wagging their fingers about it. Of course naturally, given the racist history of the Democrat Party, liberals have managed to rig the rules in order to benefit themselves and hurt their political opponents. That's a pretty neat albeit despicable trick that they've managed to pull off. 1)...

There are times when there is a convergence of ideas, a meeting of minds, such that a particular strategy has the potential to galvanize a movement. This appears to be one of those times. The idea of boycotting Florida is not a Ron Daniels idea or Institute of the Black World 21st Century (IBW) call. Rather,...

The issue of “race in America” was clearly illustrated in the attention African-Americans paid to the Zimmerman trial. Nowadays, Black Americans are no longer asking, rather, they’re demanding “Justice for Trayvon Martin.” If Zimmerman thought he’d live out his days as a happy camper, he’s sadly mistaken. The “Justice for Trayvon Martin” campaign has morphed into an enterprise that’s not going anywhere, anytime soon, especially if Parks & Crump, attorneys at law, have any say in the matter. Parks &...

    Trayvon Martin’s hoodie became a nationwide symbol following his fatal shooting, and now the director of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History wants the original. The museum’s director, Lonnie Bunch, said Mr. Martin’s hoodie, the one he was wearing the night of his death on Feb. 26, 2012, represents a unique opportunity to further the discussion about race in America, The Washington Post reported.

    The Hill ^ | 07/31/2013 | By Mike Lillis
    House Democratic leaders launched an effort this week to curb racial discrimination in the nation’s criminal justice system, arguing that the current process treats minority groups unfairly. The lawmakers are examining what Congress can do — if anything — to fight racial profiling, iron out sentencing disparities and rein in other deep-rooted biases they say plague both the legal process and the country as a whole. The push comes weeks after George Zimmerman, a Florida neighborhood watch volunteer, was acquitted of murder charges in the killing of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed African-American teenager, in a gated subdivision last year. The...

    Arkansas state Rep. Butch Wilkins, a Democrat, blasted one of his Republican colleagues in the Arkansas state House for using racist language. How did Wilkins know that former Rep. John Hubbard’s language was racist? Because Wilkins heard similar words and phrases at a Klu Klux Klan rally he once attended. Wilkins took to Facebook recently to criticize a guest column written by Jon Hubbard in the Jonesboro Sun. “How many of you have ever attended a Klan rally,” asked Wilkins in a Facebook post. “I did once out of pure curiosity in the early 1960’s. The babbling of the speaker...

    Absolutely predictable. It turns out that communists are stirring racial tensions and are directly involved and behind the Trayvon Martin protests in numerous cities including Oakland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago and New York. All Progressive strongholds. Meet Bob Avakian of the Revolutionary Communist Party. At 70, he’s still getting his kicks with fomenting mob violence, race baiting and cop hatred. From KeyWiki: Bob Avakian is the Chairman of the anti-capitalism, Maoist Communist party formed in 1975 within the United States, the Revolutionary Communist Party. In “From Ike to Mao and Beyond” (2005), Avakian tells the story of a middle-class...

That happens to me, at least before I was a senator.” ~ Potus 44Don’t Patronize Me Bro- By: Larry Walker, II -Whatever you do, don’t listen to anything Potus 44 says, period. The truth is that there are very few Black men who haven’t experienced an auto theft, or attempted carjacking. Both have happened to me, twice in my early 20’s and again in my late 30’s.This past week, diving headlong into Bizarro World,...

    It seems to me that almost every time President Obama talks publicly about race, he stirs things up rather than calms them down. Whether intentional or not, it's unfortunate -- and damaging. It's difficult to express opinions on race that don't conform to the politically correct narrative, because race baiters are always lying in wait to denounce anyone who dissents from their assessment as a bigot. Indeed, many leftists who call for a national dialogue on race routinely brand conservatives as racists -- merely because they are conservative -- even when they remain silent on racially sensitive issues. But understand...

    ... six days after George Zimmerman's acquittal in the death of Trayvon Martin, a time when the rallying has died down, the interviews tapered to a precious few and relative calm has returned to this long, hot summer, along comes President Obama to stir the pot - again. Obama's surprise appearance in the White House briefing room yesterday was a mixture of self indulgence and political exploitation of the tragic death of the Florida teenager. It did nothing to advance the cause of better race relations - even as the president himself had to acknowledge that life is indeed better...

    National Review ^ | July 20, 2013 | Andrew C. McCarthy
    The first thing to remember is that, with the Obama administration, there are no coincidences. The attorney general of the United States is engaged in a shocking extrajudicial publicity campaign. Eric Holder is prosecuting George Zimmerman in the court of public opinion because he knows he wouldn't have a prayer of convicting him in a court of law. Worse, in doing so, Holder is quite deliberately stoking resentment and tension - under the guise of leading a "national conversation" about race. At precisely the same time, the United States secretary of health and human services has loathsomely injected race into...

    WASHINGTON - Defense attorneys for George Zimmerman released a response to President Barack Obama's remarks on "stand your ground" laws and how the Trayvon Martin verdict is affecting the community. "We have listened to President Obama’s comments about the verdict in the Zimmerman Case. People are focusing on this quote: 'Trayvon Martin could’ve been me 35 years ago.' To focus on this one line misses the nuances of the President’s message, which includes comments about how African Americans view the Zimmerman Case in the context of the history of racial disparity in America," the defense wrote on their website, GZLegalCase.com....

Instead, Holder targeted the "Stand Your Ground" laws as the REAL problem...

    The following dreck appeared in the opinion section of the July 2nd, 2013 edition of The Miami Herald : *** "With the Supreme Court’s historic rulings on DOMA and Proposition 8, as well as the generational shift on civil marriage equality, it is clear that same-sex marriage will one day be a reality in Florida and the rest of the nation. It’s just a question of time. Until then, religious justifications and definitions of marriage will continue to be used in opposition to civil same-sex marriage. Less than 50 years ago, similar religious and moral justifications for prohibiting civil interracial...
