  • Is Eric Holder Trying to Railroad Ferguson Cop?

    If anyone thought the Obama administration planned to sit on the sidelines during the riots in Ferguson, Mo., those thoughts ought to be dispelled by now. Last Wednesday, Attorney General Eric Holder visited the suburban St. Louis community. Evidence suggests his ulterior motive was to conduct the groundwork for a criminal indictment against a white police officer, Darren Wilson, who on August 9 shot to death a local black youth, Michael Brown. All credible evidence reveals that Wilson, far from being a trigger-happy "racist" cop, had acted in self-defense. Brown sucker-punched Wilson, tried to take his gun, and then, after...

    The Constitution lives. Even as the news is brutal — it instructs for those willing to pay attention. American journalist James Foley has been beheaded by ISIS. And an American teenager named Michael Brown was shot dead by a Ferguson, Missouri police officer named Darren Wilson. In the case of Michael Brown, Ferguson, Missouri remains in an uproar. The town is awash in protesters, both from Ferguson and outsiders. There has been a steady diet of rioting and looting. The President of the United States is involved. The Attorney General of the United States is involved, going to Ferguson personally...

You don't want to end up looking like Rich Lowry, National Review editor, whose March 23, 2012, column on the Trayvon Martin shooting was titled, "Al Sharpton Is Right."

    Man, 21, fatally shot by police on Far South Side By Jeremy Gorner A man on a bike was fatally shot by police on the Far South Side after he aimed a gun at officers, authorities said. A Calumet District tactical team had tried to stop the 21-year-old man for questioning as he rode a bicycle in the 13300 block of South Forrestville Avenue about 9:45 p.m. Tuesday, authorities said. Someone had earlier called police about an armed man on a bike, according to a preliminary statement from the Chicago Police Department. Police: 21-year-old man fatally shot Pat Camden, spokesman...

    An online friend “Miss Marple” notes the similarities between the thuggery in Ferguson, Missouri and the depredations of the Middle East’s jihadi wild packs: I read a book by the historian Barbara Tuchman [A Distant Mirror. The Calmitous 14th Century] which theorized that the Hundred Years War was caused by a culture that was adolescent, because so many older people had died during the Black Plague. All of the nobles and rulers at that time were in their late teens and had not much guidance from older, calmer heads. That idea has remained with me ever since I read the...

    TIME ^ | July 31, 2014 | by Massimo Calabresi
    Citing concerns about equal justice in sentencing, Attorney General Eric Holder has decided to oppose certain statistical tools used in determining jail time, putting the Obama Administration at odds with a popular and increasingly effective method for managing prison populations. Holder says if such rankings are used broadly, they could have a disparate and adverse impact on the poor, on socially disadvantaged offenders, and on minorities. Holder says using static factors from a criminal’s background could perpetuate racial bias in a system that already delivers 20% longer sentences for young black men than for other offenders.

He said in a 2013 Los Angeles Times interview, “I believed the lie that because I was black, I wasn't going to be able to make it because of the white man....

    One of the reasons for being glad to be as old as I am is that I may be spared living to see a race war in America. Race wars are often wars in which nobody wins and everybody ends up much worse off than they were before. Initial skirmishes in that race war have already begun and have in fact been going on for some years. But public officials pretend that it is not happening, and the mainstream media seldom publish it at all, except in ways that conceal what is really taking place.

    Bob Costas is one of the premier sportscasters and a very smart guy, so it was somewhat surprising to see him join the chorus of those decrying the fact that the owner of the Washington Redskins is resisting the pressures to change the name of his football team. The argument is that American Indians are offended by the name, though there is no compelling evidence that most American Indians are worked up about it. Nor is there any evidence that anyone intended the name to be insulting, either by this team or any number of other sports teams that have...

    Years ago, someone said that, according to the laws of aerodynamics, bumblebees cannot fly. But the bumblebees, not knowing the laws of aerodynamics, go ahead and fly anyway. Something like that happens among people. There have been many ponderous academic writings and dour editorials in the mainstream media, lamenting that most people born poor cannot rise in American society any more. Meanwhile, many poor immigrants arrive here from various parts of Asia, and rise on up the ladder anyway. Often these Asian immigrants arrive not only with very little money, but also very little knowledge of English. They start out...

Remember Los Angeles-based street artist Shepard Fairey's famous red, beige and blue Obama "Hope" poster for the 2008 campaign? In the heady days of early 2009, the New Yorker magazine's art critic declared that Fairey had "created the most efficacious American political illustration since 'Uncle Sam Wants You.'"

    LOS ANGELES, July 25, 2013 — July 19 marked the 50th anniversary of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech. The commemoration of this powerful and world-changing oratory was co-opted for two reasons. One was President Obama’s impromptu ramblings on race a week after the Zimmerman acquittal. The other reason was the marches across 100 cities to protest that same verdict, and to put pressure on the Department of Justice to lodge civil rights charges against George Zimmerman. So how effective were the protests? If news coverage is any indication, not very. National papers like the New...

    Justice: Only about a quarter of the public closely followed the Zimmerman trial, yet the media treat it as the event of the century. They, like their professional agitator cohorts, thrive on racial animosity. A new Pew Research Center weekend survey finds that a mere 26% of Americans followed Zimmerman's trial for second degree murder of Trayvon Martin "very closely." But Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and NAACP chief Ben Jealous have shown in media appearances that they are racial arsonists, stoking the flames of racial discord in a country that has virtually eliminated the discrimination that existed before the civil...

    There are no winners in the trial of George Zimmerman. The only question is whether the damage that has been done has been transient or irreparable. Legally speaking, Zimmerman has won his freedom. But he can still be sued in a civil case, and he will probably never be safe to live his life in peace, as he could have before this case made him the focus of national attention and orchestrated hate. More important than the fate of George Zimmerman, however, is the fate of the American justice system and of the public's faith in that system and in...

As the postmodern professor par excellence explained to radio host Tavis Smiley last Sunday, the advances made by gays and lesbians mean that “we black folk are just being pushed to the back of the bus”: Again this has something to do of course with what history books will say. The irony of the age of Obama in which black folks found themselves pushed to the back, [and] our gay brothers and lesbian sisters more and more pushed to the center. Perhaps West is right,...

    While the Supreme Court rolls back the Voting Rights Act of 1965, condemning it as an unnecessary vestige of the civil-rights era, President Obama is acting as if America were still in the mid-'60s. His race-obsessed administration is bringing racial preferences and affirmative action back with a vengeance. And it's doing so outside the legislative process, largely behind the scenes, through executive orders, regulations and prosecutions, effectively expanding existing civil-rights law. Consider the following race-based policy moves, which have gone largely unreported by the major media — and unnoticed by the general public (which polls show overwhelming oppose racial quotas...

    One of the most vexing questions in African-American history is whether free African Americans themselves owned slaves. The short answer to this question, as you might suspect, is yes, of course; some free black people in this country bought and sold other black people, and did so at least since 1654, continuing to do so right through the Civil War. For me, the really fascinating questions about black slave-owning are how many black "masters" were involved, how many slaves did they own and why did they own slaves? The answers to these questions are complex, and historians have been arguing...

    The recent dust-up between the NAACP and the tea partiers over charges of "racism" appear to be yet one more instance of blacks accusing whites of insensitivities, real or imagined. In reality, however, these exchanges reflect far deeper animosities that will not vanish with "clarifications" or expelling "racist" tea partiers. The NAACP and its numerous allies have for decades led the charge to expand government power, including intruding into areas once considered absolutely off-limits to Washington, let alone local government. Tea Partiers are not libertarians but they've had enough with government power run amok. This disagreement is, to use Thomas...

    Racism is the belief that race is a primary determinant of a person's ability or character and that one race is inherently superior to another. The natural expression of racism is discrimination. Racism is unethical, abhorrent, and conflicts with America's foundational Judeo-Christian value system. Do-gooders have been striving for decades to combat racism through legislation and other policies that outlaw discrimination based upon race. These policies have spawned an industry within and outside of government that has institutionalized the identification, study, and analysis of race. This industry feeds upon the existence of racism to justify even more discussion, funding, and...

Frederick Motz said, “The alleged connection is even more implausible when considered against the background of other factors leading to...

    White racism is back. Not so much any actual racist behavior by any actual white people, but rather the charge leveled against political opponents of President Obama. Obama's election supposedly ushered in a new post-racial era where old animosities would fade from memory, but if anything, charges of white racial vitriol are as prominent as ever. Let me try to explain this eruption and suggest why accusations of white racism will become increasingly strident. In a nutshell, white racism has become the glib reason for imperfect racial progress, and the term's definitional fuzziness, it's resistance to scientific confirmation makes it

    Amid the orchestrated phony protests over President Barack Obama’s health care reform efforts, a new report by the Southern Poverty Law Center, SPLC, documents another threat to the health of the Black community and the nation’s stability: rising racism within right-wing militias. In its report entitled “Return of the Militias,” the Southern Poverty Law Center points out that the militia movement, that faded in the 1990s, is back and that “One big difference from the militia movement of the 1990s is that the face of the federal government — the enemy that almost all parts of the extreme right see...

    In my youth, I lived a wild and crazy life; drugs, women and partying, basically 24/7. Scholarships permitted me to attend art college where I hung with hippies. While the hippies preached peace and love, most were extremely angry at America. There I was, a black student from the ghetto of east Baltimore, who could not figure out what these spoiled white kids from well to do families were so p-o-ed about. However, their philosophy was free love and drugs. So, I said, "Right on!" I grew weary of my lifestyle and asked God to help me. He did. I...

    Sonia Sotomayor will be the newest associate justice on the United States Supreme Court. There was nothing in her long judicial record that was particularly damning or controversial, the Ricci Case notwithstanding. As in any case, there were two legitimate sides, she just reflexively came down on the government-sanctioned racial preference side. Trampling a few working class white guys to achieve racial justice is a small price to pay. We have surrendered to the multicultural race hustlers Who wants to be called a bigot? It's easier to just shut up and go about your business, leaving this nonsense to the...

  • Their time is gone[LULAC, NAACP]

    Letters to the Editor: 2.24.09 Their time is gone I read the article in the Feb. 19 edition about Geraldo Rivera applauding LULAC’s mission. Believe me, I’m not an idealist, but I am a thinker. What would happen if LULAC and the NAACP went away? I believe we would all be fine. It seems to me that organizations that represent people solely on the basis of race tend to be more racist than the causes that they fight so adamantly against. Why can’t we have a single Chamber of Commerce that represents Hispanic and black interests as well as their...

    Yesterday morning, I marveled at the p.c. idiocy of Dallas County (TX) commissioner John Wiley Price, who protested when his colleague Kenneth Mayfield used the term “black hole” to refer to lost paperwork. The local Fox station in Dallas-Fort Worth has the video of the exchange. The ignorance and sanctimony of John Wiley Price are something to behold.

    Segments of Americans are gearing up to oppose Senator Barack Obama because they fear he will be more considerate of the debt America owes to Blacks. Anti-Obama whites, in particular, are concerned he’ll get into the White House and put Blacks on track for “a reparations gravy train.” CNN debate moderator Anderson Cooper put Black Reparations on track to be a part of the presidential dialogue during the South Carolina Primaries. The African-American vote in South Carolina was very important, and that made the reparations question relevant in the Democratic Debate. At that event former Senator John Edwards said “...

    On Tuesday morning, following Rev Jeremiah Wright's incendiary National Press Club appearance, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said on ABC's Good Morning America that Rev.Wright "went out of his way to weaken Obama...I think Reverend Wright has a greater interest in his self-importance". Indeed Rev Wright is deliberately damaging Barack Obama-but for a more cynical reason than ego preservation. For sure, Rev. Wright's supersized ego has boxed out Obama's ambition. But ego preservation pales when compared to Rev. Wright's real purpose -- keeping the pledge payments flowing and collection plates full. Wright's root agenda, in perfect alignment with the far...

    TRENTON, New Jersey: New Jersey lawmakers begin considering this week a measure that would make theirs the first northern U.S. state to offer an expression of regret for slavery, an institution that one Republican lawmaker said blacks today should remember led to their becoming Americans. The resolution, which is to be discussed in a state Assembly committee on Thursday, expresses "profound regret" for the state's role in slavery and apologizes for the wrongs inflicted by slavery in the U.S. If approved, it would make New Jersey the fifth U.S. state to offer a similar apology or expression of regret for...
