    Some are incapable of viewing the MAGA-hat-wearing teens from Covington Catholic as anything other than pure evil. In the nearly two hours of video footage that greatly elucidate what happened between a group of boys from Covington Catholic High School and Native American veteran Nathan Phillips, there are many moments that turn the media's initial, false narrative—racist teens harass well-meaning elderly man—on its head. ...Undoubtedly, it is a teachable moment for everyone who rushed to join the social media mob condemning the kids as abominable racists, including prominent journalists on the left, right, and center. To their credit, many have...

    Anything, and everybody white is racist nowadays. Who knew that the 1953 Chevy Corvette that came only in Polo White, with white wall tires, was the ultimate in racist symbolism? We are covered in the white down of racism every day.

    An ESPN host suggested Wednesday it was racist for President Donald Trump to serve fast food to the Clemson football team at the White House, saying such food being given to players of a "predominately black sport" gave her pause. Paid for by Trump, the White House offered a spread of Wendy's, McDonald's, Burger King and Domino's pizza to the Clemson players on Monday when they visited to celebrate their national championship win. While the players appeared to enjoy the food, some political and sports observers took Trump to task for what they considered a low-class gesture.

    Newly sworn-in House Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said on Sunday that there's 'no question' whether or not Donald Trump is a racist. Ocasio-Cortez, the Democrat who stunned the political world by winning her party primary last year against an establishment politician, was asked by Anderson Cooper of CBS' 60 Minutes whether she believed the president 'is a racist?' 'Yeah. Yeah. No question,' Ocasio-Cortez replied. 'When you look at the words that he uses, which are historic dog whistles of white supremacy,' Ocasio-Cortez said.

    ... Four black coaches were fired Sunday or Monday, including the Jets’ Todd Bowles, who was let go shortly after his team’s final loss Sunday. The Jets had a 14-34 record in the last three seasons under Bowles. Marvin Lewis, who had been at the helm of the Cincinnati Bengals since 2003, was fired Monday. Though he had resurrected the moribund Bengals and took them to the playoffs multiple times, he never won a playoff game and this season was Cincinnati’s third consecutive one with a losing record. Also fired Monday was Denver Broncos Coach Vance Joseph, who had presided...

    Reporters used to report the news. Reporters used to stand up for free speech. All that is gone in the Progressive Era of news as the likes of CNN’s Oliver Darcy use their reporting to censor the news and free speech by campaigning to get their competitors and ideological opponents deplatformed or driven off the air by advertiser boycotts. Now comes the Washington Post’s tech policy reporter Tony Romm who attempted to get the wildly popular border wall fundraiser taken down by GoFundMe

    LEXINGTON, Va. -- Mark Rush could not name the last movie in the past 10 years that gave him a belly laugh -- or made him snort or chuckle or laugh out loud, at least for any extended period of time. "The last side-splitting movies I saw were 'Caddyshack' or 'Blazing Saddles,'" the politics and law professor at Washington and Lee College said. "That was way too long ago." Rush and I were talking over dinner at the Red Hen, a farm-to-table restaurant that made headlines earlier this year for its unfortunate decision to refuse service to White House spokeswoman...

    HuffPost, a liberal news site, was lampooned after saying Christmas classic “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” was “seriously problematic” over claims that it features sexism and bullying. “Viewers are noticing the tale may not be so jolly after all,” the outlet’s video said. “And they’re sharing their observations online.” Among those observations was the suggestion that the TV classic was a story about racism and homophobia, while calling Santa Claus abusive and bigoted. “Yearly reminder that #Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is a parable on racism & homophobia w/Santa as a bigoted exploitative prick,” read one comment shared by HuffPost. “Santa’s operation...

    Liberals are preparing for Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris’s possible expulsion from the Senate Judiciary Committee by highlighting she is a black woman. In the event that Republican Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith wins the Mississippi runoff election on Nov. 27, the makeup of the Senate Judiciary Committee will shift in favor of the GOP, with a seat currently held by a Democrat flipping red. Consequently, Harris, the most junior Democratic member of the committee, will likely be squeezed out. “Not only would it be unconscionable to remove the only African American woman from the committee, but Senator Harris also is the most...

    “What you see Trump and Rick Scott and other Republicans doing here is counting on the power of racism to serve as fact," said an Emory University professor. Most weeks the Broward County Elections Office, nestled in the Lauderhill Mall just off US 441 in Lauderhill, Florida, isn’t the kind of place that draws a crowd. But on Election Day earlier this month, as Bob Henry Sr. stood in the parking lot closest to the county office, what he saw looked like something just short of a mob. The parking lot had become a locus for the frustrated, the distrustful,...

    Even if Elvis popularized an art form that people of another race largely invented, it’s hard to argue that a lots and lots of successful black artists didn’t walk right through the doors he opened. Presley was initially a hero among black musicians in Memphis for that reason, and there’s no reason to think Elvis himself was racist. Quite the opposite, in fact. In 1956, it was reported the ‘“the rock ’n’ roll phenomenon cracked Memphis’s segregation laws” by attending the Memphis Fairgrounds amusement park “during what is designated as ‘colored night.’”Elvis’s personal reputation for being opposed to racism is...

    “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

    “On the campaign trail, you called yourself a nationalist,” she began. “Some people saw that as emboldingly white nationalist. Now people are also saying…” Trump interrupted her, saying, “I don’t know why you’d say that — such a racist question.” She kept going. “There are some people who are saying the Republican Party is seen as supporting white nationalists because of that rhetoric.” Trump replied, “Honestly? … Let me tell you, that’s a racist question.” The Washington Press Corps was floored. . . “This president said he was a nationalist … Yamiche asked a real question because there is a...

    In the wake of a racist robocall in Georgia by someone impersonating Oprah Winfrey, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams said she is concerned state residents may feel like "their votes don't count." "This is the magical negro, Oprah Winfrey, asking you to make my fellow negress, Stacey Abrams, the governor of Georgia," the call said in part. The message also included a slew of racist language including references to Aunt Jemima. Both campaigns have denounced the calls, which were paid for by a group called Road to Power. "Are you concerned these racist appeals are going to work?" ABC News...

Some social media users asked why it was all right for him to dress up as a Caucasian character, while NBC canceled his colleague Megyn Kelly’s show after her controversial blackface comments. “I’m going to say this one last time, but the folks who get it, understand and the ones who DON’T, won’t,” Roker tweeted to explain why his ‘80s-themed costume was not an example of whiteface. “I...

Don Lemon may be one of the most mentally challenged people on television. He was talking to Fredo Cuomo, who’s on that list as well, and they were talking about recent shootings and mailed pipe bombs. Fredo said to Lemon, “There was another hate-filled criminal just last week Kentucky, another white guy in custody for shooting and killing two African-Americans at a grocery store. And we barely had time to cover it. Don...

    The true threat to this country’s stability is not one ethnicity or people group, CNN host Don Lemon lectured at the end of Chris Cuomo’s show Monday night, before contradicting himself by stating that white conservative men are actually the biggest terror threat America faces. Lemon made that statement as Cuomo was signing off his primetime show October 29, as the pair complained about Trump’s rhetoric on illegal immigration. The liberal journalists, taking a note from their peers, tied it to the recent horrific murders at a Pittsburgh synagogue and a Kroger grocery store (because of course somehow everything is...
