    Wanna bet? On Good Morning America today, Robin Robert said that when she asked the lawyer for the two men arrested at a Philadelphia Starbucks whether they were planning to sue Starbucks or the City of Philadelphia, he replied: “That’s not what they’re thinking about at this time. That they want to be a part of the process. Remember Kevin Johnson, the CEO, said that they wanted those gentlemen to be part of the process. They say they’re still working that out.” But here was the real tell: “They’re going to allow us, GMA, to follow along and follow up...

    Wes Johnson was about 18 years old when he was murdered in a cotton field in southern Alabama. It was 1937, and according to newspaper reports at the time, a mob of men had dragged him from his jail cell before he could stand trial for the charge against him: assaulting a white woman. Today, only one photograph is known to exist of Johnson, a single picture to preserve his image for posterity—his lifeless body hanging from a tree. Bryan Stevenson wants to honor the legacy of Johnson, and thousands like him, with a new memorial for victims of lynching...

    When World War II ended, America was about to swing into the most affluent, progressive and prosperous period of our history, and the pie was big enough for everybody to have a piece. But our nation had a cancer rapidly metastasizing on its underbelly. Some of the same soldiers who fought against the Germans on D-Day, Guadalcanal and the Battle of Berlin came home to find that risking their lives fighting America's battles did not elevate them above the second-rate citizenship they left behind when they went off to war. Looking back and remembering those days quite well from my...
  • Professors claim farmers’ markets cultivate racism: ‘Habits of white people are normalized’

    Two professors from San Diego State University claim in a new book that farmers’ markets in urban areas are weed-like “white spaces” responsible for oppression. Pascale Joassart-Marcelli and Fernando J Bosco are part of an anthology released this month titled “Just Green Enough.” The work, published by Routledge, claims there is a correlation between the “whiteness of farmers’ markets” and gentrification. “Farmers’ markets are often white spaces where the food consumption habits of white people are normalized,” the SDSU professors write, the education watchdog Campus Reform reported Wednesday.
  • Shelby Steele Claims That African-American 'Oppression is Over'

    11/08/2017 4:44:48 AM PST · by Strac6 · 18 replies
    WASHINGTON -- African-American writer and social critic Shelby Steele argued on Thursday that black oppression is over in the U.S., while calling on blacks to stop blaming racism for their own inability to harness freedom. In a pointed speech at the Heritage Foundation, Stanford University Hoover Institution senior fellow Steele also described the Black Lives Matter movement as “a comfort zone where people land because they are afraid of freedom.” “Liberalism, I think, has effectively become the new racism,” Steele said. “It mimics segregation by seeing blacks as helpless inferiors. Black inferiority is its greatest sort of cause … and...

    "The base of the Democratic party used to be working people, regardless of race, ethnic, or ethnic identity, sexual orientation, et cetera. That was a Roosevelt agenda. That was the Truman agenda. Over time, and I think particularly over the last eight years, the Democratic Party has moved into interest group politics and in many cases white working people have become the whipping post, or were. I think what you saw in this election here is white working people in these rural areas seeing that someone actually was articulating the fact that they had become disenfranchised and they gravitated toward...

    Andre Iguodala made it clear that even if the Warriors wind up meeting with President Trump at the White House, he won’t be going. When asked by USA Today’s Sam Amick if he would accept an invitation from Trump, Iguodala said, “Hell nah.” The Warriors downplayed the potential presidential controversy Monday, saying in a statement, “Today is all about celebrating our championship. We have not received an invitation to the White House but will make those decisions when and if necessary.” The Warriors’ standout sixth man posed a possible scenario where he would join the team for a White House...

    A Queen’s University student theatre company has cancelled a production of Shakespeare’s Othello set to open this month following an outcry over the decision to cast a white woman in the title role of a black man. “For the safety and mental health of our entire team we unfortunately feel the need to suspend our production of Othello,” the artistic directors wrote on Facebook Wednesday. They subsequently apologized to the Kingston, Ont., university’s black community for what they called an “oppressive” artistic decision. After September auditions, Queen’s Vagabond Theatre made what its directors acknowledged was a risky decision: Lauren Broadhurst,...

    House Speaker Paul Ryan says the police-involved shootings in Charlotte and Tulsa, and the resulting violence in Charlotte, were “heartbreaking.” “And this country has to find new ways of learning how to heal and understand all the different perspectives,” Ryan told CBS’s “Face the Nation.” “Each of us have to get better perspectives, get outside of our comfort zones, understand what other people are thinking and saying and what they see, and then try and come up with common-ground solutions. And that’s, to me, the kind of healing that has to occur. And you’re not going to have that done...

    Last year's college news was about demands for safe spaces, trigger warnings and bans on insensitivity. This year's college news is about black student demands for segregated campus housing and other racially segregated campus spaces and programs. I totally disagree with these calls by black students. It's a gross dereliction of duty for college administrators to cave to these demands, but I truly sympathize with the problems that many black college students face. For college administrators and leftist faculty, the actual fate of black students is not nearly so important as the good feelings they receive from a black presence...

    Any member of an organization that truly cares about the group will not hesitate to hold the leadership accountable for the group’s actions, if they deem them to be inconsistent with the mission of the group. This is because they want to see the group succeed in fulfilling its mission. Many in the Republican Party have criticized Trump’s campaign, not because they want Trump to win, but because “they” don’t want to lose. They don’t want to lose their “power.” They want to be re-elected to their various congressional and gubernatorial offices strictly for the sake of having power, not...

    President Obama's historic election, considered one of the biggest-ever advances for African Americans, has faded in importance for blacks due to his failure to fix race relations, according to a new Gallup report.When elected, 71 percent believed that the "Obama effect" was "one of the most important" advances for blacks, but now just 32 percent agree. More disturbing: Slightly more, 33 percent, believe that his election and presidency is "not that important" for blacks.

    What an Honest Discussion on Race Would Look Like And why Obama and the Left would avoid it like the plague. July 22, 2016 Jack Kerwick    On Thursday, July 14, Barack Obama held a nationally televised “town hall” meeting on American race relations—and, unsurprisingly, punted on that “honest” discussion of race that he and his ilk accuse the rest of us of deferring. A truly honest discussion of race, you see, threatens the Racism-Industrial-Complex (RIC) or, alternately, Big Racism. A truly honest discussion of race would mention that for virtually every kind of crime, blacks are perpetrators in...

    A new poll finds that more than one-third of Americans say they worry “a great deal” about the current state of race relations in the United States, the highest number in the poll’s 15-year span. Thirty-five percent of Americans in Monday’s Gallup survey said they are extremely worried about the state of race relations, up from 28 percent in 2015. That number is also up by more than 100 percent since 2014, when 17 percent of Americans said they were greatly worried about racial strife in America. Although the numbers fluctuated in the teens during President Obama’s first six years...

    I would call this breaking news, but the only real headline here is that Time Magazine felt the need to point this out as if it were some sort of surprise. Ask anyone of any race, gender, age or religion how they think things are going in terms of race relations and unrest around the country these days and you're going to get a fairly gloomy response. But one recent survey shows that it's even worse than some of us imagined... in fact, it hasn't been this bad since the bad old days under Bill Clinton. (Time)

    Why does it surprise anyone when chaos reigns in America's inner cities when it just reflects the chaos now reigning in our whole country? I open my dictionary to the word "civilize" and I read: "1. to bring out of a condition of savagery or barbarism; to instruct in the ways of an advanced society. 2. to better the habits or manners of; refine." Somehow it's lost in today's liberal-controlled America that a civilized society does not emerge spontaneously from individuals giving maximum vent to their impulses. Civilization is the product of living by truths and rules, received through tradition,...

    he Wednesday morning murders of 24-year-old Roanoke TV reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward, 27, were a racist atrocity, a hate crime. Were they not white, they would be alive today. Their killer, Vester L. Flanagan II, said as much in his farewell screed. He ordered his murder weapon, he said, two days after the slaughter of nine congregants at the African-American AME church in Charleston, South Carolina. “What sent me over the top was the church shooting,” said Flanagan. To be sure, racism does not fully explain why Flanagan, fired from that same WDBJ7 station, committed this act...
