    Via the Right Newz and Newsbusters, this one’s much easier than Lawrence O’Donnell’s tortured “golf = racist” theory last night. Just a few easy steps: Obama administration –> corruption –> “Chicago” –> black neighborhoods –> racism. Say this for Tingles: In a week packed with moronic media race-baiting, with his co-hosts at MSNBC locked in an endless game of dog-whistle oneupsmanship, he’s somehow managed to stand out. This is really his niche; the rest of the press will play racial code-word parlor games sporadically, when the GOP is on the offensive and the left needs a little extra help, but...

Suffice it to say, he knows a lot about prejudice and bigotry.Yet in response to Mitt Romney’s lame joke about not needing a birth certificate to prove he was from Michigan, Dyson proclaimed, to the approval of a collection of sage pundits on MSNBC, that Romney was resorting to “some of the basest, most...

The photograph shows an old and worn leather bound book that appears to have several hundred pages. Matthews said the photograph was sent to him by a former Bain investor who told him the book pictured is the one that Republicans, including presidential candidate Mitt Romney, have used as a source for racial coding since the Reagan era. After showing the photograph Matthews exploded with emotion. “We now have the proof that exposes...

A fourth person was arrested for having no identification. A group of about 50 protesters this afternoon blocked Gay Street adjacent to the City County Building, north of the Gay Street Bridge. One large sign read, "Racism hurts," and evoked Knox County Sheriff Jimmy "J.J." Jones' name. The protesters spanned sidewalk to sidewalk, blocking the intersection at Gay Street and Hill Avenue. Vehicles couldn't pass. The protesters said they are challenging anti-immigrant policies and racial profiling. Specifically,...

It’s his first and best chance to tell his personal story and warm up before a national audience in prime time. (Did you know his real first name is “Willard?”). The GOP ticket is still trailing the competition in national polls. Republicans must make a tricky pitch: Convince voters that the reserved, wealthy businessman can “save” America from a personally popular incumbent.

Kelli Goff, the political writer for The Root, informs us that Ryan not only has a "Black sister-in-law," but that "his 'college sweetheart' was African-American" as well.

    If you thought the twin subjects of race and racism as they pertain to Barack Obama had finally wheezed their last when a black MSNBC host charged Mitt Romney with “n**gerizing” the president, think again. Ta-Nehisi Coates, a senior editor for The Atlantic, has a piece in the magazine’s September issue titled “Fear of a Black President.” There appears to be a deliberate ambiguity in that title inasmuch as the essay goes on to imply that the fear is Obama’s—that he has perforce walked on eggshells throughout his presidency because America is still not ready to accept a black man...

In fact, he refered to this observation as the 'niggerization' of Obama.

Are the confirmed reports of this anger mere racial code-words on the part of Obama's trusted aides? We are asked to believe that this must be the case. So,...

Washington Post editorialist Jonathan Capehart claimed Biden doesn't have "anything to apologize for." But earlier, Willie Geist opined that had Paul Ryan said such a thing, "there would be calls" for Ryan and Romney "to get out of the race." Taking the cluelessness cake, Mika Brzezinski found it inconceivable that Biden might have been playing the race card. View the video here.

Matthews’ outrage came from an ad put out by the Romney campaign suggesting that President Obama, "announced a plan to gut welfare reform by dropping work requirements," which, his administration most certainly did. Since there's nothing factually assailable about the ad, Matthews decided that the best approach for criticizing the spot was claiming it was "Willie Horton stuff." Of course, the 1988 Willie Horton ad was also 100 percent factually unassailable, which is why that ad...

Both candidates will raise and spend unprecedented amounts of money on political advertisements, as will their respective parties and allied super PACs.

    One advantage of defeating Barack Obama in November, apart from saving the country from financial ruin and the rest, is that conservatives will presumably be able to criticize liberal policies again without automatically being accused of racism. These charges aren't just emanating from the fringe groups; they're not just being uttered by radical leftist bloggers or Occupy Wall Street zealots. They are no longer the exclusive province of race hustlers whose professional careers depend on stirring up animosity among racial groups. In August 2011, the level of polarization seemed to reach a fever pitch, when Congressional Black Caucus Whip Andre...

    As Barack Obama's lead over Mitt Romney in the polls narrows, and his presumed fundraising advantage seems about to become a disadvantage, it's alibi time for some of his backers. His problem, they say, is that some voters don't like him because he's black. Or they don't like his policies because they don't like having a black president. So, you see, if you don't like Obamacare, it's not because it threatens to take away your health insurance, or to deny coverage for some treatments. It's because you don't like black people.

Numerous Canadians have been fined for "speech crimes." The commission is seen as a relic of the Soviet Union by conservatives. The commission has also been accused of carrying out politically motivated vendettas. Prominent Canadian leaders have even used the commission to try to intimidate Americans, such as Ann Coulter, from...

    In February 2009, Attorney General Eric Holder said America is a “nation of cowards” on race because we don’t talk about. So let’s talk about it. Voter ID Progressives are up in arms over the prospect of voters being required to show something at the polls they must show regularly to function as a productive member of society – a photo ID. It’s because progressives, particularly progressive Democrats, have a vested interest in preventing as many people as possible, especially minorities, from becoming productive members of society. Productive members of society – and those who aspire to be – don’t...

    OKLAHOMA CITY — The Thunder say Lil Wayne is welcome to attend a playoff game in Oklahoma City, but needs to buy a ticket just like everyone else. The rapper created a stir Thursday night by posting on Twitter that he was “going to go to the Thunder game tonight but was denied by the team to be in their arena.” Thunder spokesman Dan Mahoney says Lil Wayne’s representatives did contact the team requesting tickets but insisted that he sit on the front row, and none of those seats was available. Oklahoma City sold out every home game during the...

    The ever so modest Phillip Phillips won "American Idol" Wednesday night, and while some say it was well deserved others have insisted that the show is "rigged." After the Georgia hometown boy won "American Idol" Wednesday night, many came forward and insisted that that enough was enough on the singing show, which according to some is clearly "racist." "[In the] last 3 in finals, one was black, who was the best singer, one was brown who was also great singer, one was white who was a karaoke singer; guess who won, the white one of course, when will America stop...

    That President Obama lost roughly 40 percent of the vote in Democratic primaries in Arkansas, Kentucky and West Virginia over the last two weeks has drawn massive national headlines. Those headlines have drawn a collective eyeroll from Democrats — and many others who closely follow national politics — who ascribe the underperformance by the incumbent to a very simple thing: racism. No, none of these Democrats are willing to put their name to that allegation — either generally or for this story. But, it is, without question the prevalent viewpoint they hold privately.

    And in what might be the biggest projection of all-time, Sharpton claims Republicans have a “long history of fear and smear.” Via Newsbusters: SHARPTON: We start in 1988 with the attack add against Michael Dukakis. And we saw it again in 2004 with the swiftboating of John Kerry. The party has run entire campaigns on character assassination. But the latest effort, it’s about more than just winning an election. It’s about dehumanizing President Obama. . . . I think we went through that four years ago, everyone knows where the president stands. I think this was more geared trial to...

    House Dems trained to make race the issue byJoel Gehrke House Democrats received training this week on how to address the issue of race to defend government programs, according to training materials obtained by The Washington Examiner. The prepared content of a Tuesday presentation to the House Democratic Caucus and staff indicates that Democrats will seek to portray apparently neutral free-market rhetoric as being charged with racial bias, conscious or unconscious. In her distributed remarks, Maya Wiley of the Center for Social Inclusion criticized "conservative messages [that are] racially 'coded' and had images of people of color that we commonly...

    Before resigning last month as the Memphis officer heard on a police radio allegedly having sexual relations with a woman, Dion D. Anthony claimed that the encounter was a charade. He claimed he faked sexually explicit comments and sounds with a woman and broadcast them to expose racism and unfairness in the Memphis Police Department. Anthony, 37, raised the issues in an interview during an internal investigation at the department of the 58 seconds of sex talk broadcast over an open microphone on the police radio about 8:40 p.m. on March 12. "I was not having sex on duty," Anthony...

    The Rev. Al Sharpton is lord of all he surveys. “Check out this,” the flamboyant civil rights leader told me during breakfast at his organization’s annual meeting this week. He flipped through the program until he found a full-page ad with the logos of Fox News, the New York Post and the Wall Street Journal. “News Corporation Proudly Supports National Action Network’s 2012 Convention,” it said. Sharpton grinned. “They bash me on Fox News,” he said. “But they sponsor my conference.” Everybody wants to be on Sharpton’s good side these days. No fewer than five Cabinet officers and a senior...
