    This weekend, leaders from Ole Miss Greek life convened upon Camp Hopewell in Lafayette County for a three-day retreat designed to build leaders and bring campus closer together. The retreat was cut short Saturday night, however, after three black students found a banana peel in a tree in front of one of the campís cabins. The students shared what they found with National Pan-Hellenic Council leaders, sparking a dayís worth of camp-wide conversation surrounding symbolism, intended or not. In the midst of the open and sometimes heated discussion, senior accounting major Ryan Swanson said he put the banana peel in...

    The national movement to change racially offensive names of buildings, sports teams and landmarks will soon touch a group of schools in southeast Portland. Lynch Meadows, Lynch Wood and Lynch View elementary schools will shed their "Lynch" before the upcoming school year in response to growing concern about the word's racial connotations. The schools, part of the Centennial School District, were named for the Lynch family, which donated land over a century ago to build the first of the schools. But Centennial Superintendent Paul Coakley says many newer families coming into the district associate the name with America's violent racial...
  • Lawyers sue Times, CNN, Fox News for racial discrimination

    Three of the nationís largest media organizations are being sued ó two by the same lawyer ó for ≠racial discrimination. A half-dozen people have filed suits against the New York Times and Fox News, while as many as 175 current and former employees have contacted lawyers about joining a class-action suit against CNN. The Times plaintiffs claim in a suit filed last year by New York lawyer Douglas Wigdor that ďthe Gray LadyĒ prefers to hire white employees to help target a white audience. ďUnbeknownst to the world at large, not only does the Times have an ideal customer (young,...

  • Savagery and Murder: An Epidemic of Black Violence Against Elderly Whites

    For quite some time, Democrats and other leftists have lamented the ample presence of whites in America. Oprah Winfrey, for example, memorably remarked that for ďracismĒ to end, old whites ďare going to have to die.Ē Given the pervasive phenomenon of black-on-elderly white violence and murder, and the utter silence about it, itís admittedly tempting to think that perhaps the extinction of elderly whites canít happen quickly enough for some of those on the left. Whatever the reason for the suppression of this epidemic, black-on-elderly white violence is very, very real. Paul Monchnik survived combat in World War II. He...

    Ordinarily, it is not a good idea to base how you vote on just one issue. But if black lives really matter, as they should matter like all other lives, then it is hard to see any racial issue that matters as much as education. The government could double the amount of money it spends on food stamps or triple the amount it spends on housing subsidies, and it will mean very little if the next generation of young blacks goes out into the world as adults without a decent education. Many things that are supposed to help blacks actually...

    Healing After Dallas, Without Obama When the president repeatedly assumes the worst about police, he sends a dangerous message. By Jason L. Riley July 11, 2016 7:06 p.m. ET President Obama is scheduled to speak in Dallas Tuesday at a memorial service for the five police officers gunned down last weekóbut havenít we already heard enough from him? Mr. Obamaís initial response to the shootings was more of the same: equivocation mixed with an attempt to change the subject. He said there is no possible justification for violence against law enforcement, but then added a line about racial disparities in...

Using Census Bureau information released with 2014 population estimates, Pew found that the US is becoming ever more diverse, at the local level as well as nationally. In 2014, 364 counties, independent cities and other county-level equivalents did not have non-Hispanic white majorities, the most in modern history, and more than twice the level in 1980.(snip)(snip)

    I’ve been feeling down lately. You see, I’m a white heterosexual American Christian. That means I’m the worst thing to ever draw breath on the planet. By virtue of existing, my kind if responsible for all the injustice in the world. Wars splintering apart Mesopotamia? Famine raging in Africa? Poverty in Latin America? All my fault. White colonialism has ransacked the entire globe, leaving it razed and destitute. All the world’s problems, from hunger to strife to impoverishment, fall squarely on the back on the white man. And those are just the issues that affect people beyond America’s borders. On...

    Last Thursday night, more than 100 community members gathered at the Waterloo Center for the Arts for a panel discussion of Racial Justice. The forum engaged the philosophy behind the Black Lives Matter movement and discussed the system of racial injustice here in the Cedar Valley and in the nation. Panel members included the Reverend Abraham Funchess, the Reverend Belinda Creighton-Smith, the Reverend Mary E. Robinson, Public Defender Aaron Hawbaker, and Chief Dan Trelka. As panelists eloquently explained, the Black Lives Matter movement is about reasserting the inherent dignity and respect of a group of people who have been diminished...

    False claims of racism and hate crimes related to sexuality seem to be endemic. So desirable is the status of victim that some people, especially those in academia, have been known to vandalize their own cars, attach nooses to their office doors, and otherwise fabricate hate crimes against themselves. Oberlin College, with a history of hysteria over fake hate crimes, even generated worldwide headlines for its overwrought response to a series of ďhate crimesĒ that turned out to be false. We donít know what percentage of hate crime reports are self-generated hoaxes by the purported victims. Often there is no...

    The government has seized information at all levels regarding our personal information, all for the purpose of "racial and economic justice." The media is in a frenzy. President Barack Obama, and his clan of leftists in the Democrat Party (and the infiltrators in the Republican Party) have had a good few weeks. He is achieving his goals. They are fundamentally transforming the United States of America, while weakening our stance worldwide, and they are keeping records through technology to keep their winning streak alive. The Affordable Care Act was saved once again by Justice Roberts, a man trying to save...

    Obama administration unveiled new rules Wednesday to rid the country of racially segregated neighborhoods by directing cities and towns to set goals for reducing segregation, and then regularly report their progress to the feds. Communities nationwide will be given a series of questions designed to help them figure out whether racial bias is causing segregated neighborhoods, racial or ethnically concentrated areas of poverty, unequal access to opportunity or disproportionate housing needs in their jurisdiction. They will be required to set goals related to that data and publicly report on their progress every three to five years. The Department of Housing...
