  • Could It Be Time To Deny White Men The Franchise?

    This redistribution of the world’s wealth is long overdue, and it is not just South Africa where white males own a disproportionate amount of wealth. ... It is time to wrestle control of the world back from white males, and the first step will be a temporary restriction of the franchise to them. ... Although this may seem unfair and unjust, allowing white males to continue to call the shots politically and economically, following their actions over the past 500 years, is the greater injustice.

    Veronica Roth, the author of the Divergent series, recently came out with the first novel in an upcoming series called "Carve the Mark". The novel is about war between special species who are born with special powers. One of the species is coded to be representative of a white elite society while another species is coded as dark skinned, brutal and not civilized. I do not have an issue with alien species representing races we are already familiar with. Representation is important and rare in science fiction series, so the idea of representation is awesome. However, my issue lies here:...

    Prosecutors MIGHT consider it a hate crime, if the Political Wind blows in its favor-because the Victim is 'White' and the Perps are African-American.

    Regardless of what President-elect Donald Trump’s plans are for immigration, President Barack Obama says there will be “inevitable” changes to the demographics of the United States. “If you stopped all immigration today, just by virtue of birth rates, this is going to be a browner country,” Obama told NPR’s Steve Inskeep in an interview that aired Monday. “And if we’re not thinking right now about how we make sure that next generation is getting a good education and are instilled with a common creed and the values that make America so special and are cared for and nurtured and loved...

    Marc Lamont Hill said Jim Brown's comment that he "fell in love" after meeting with President-elect Donald Trump on Tuesday is "disturbing." "For Donald Trump to have gone through -- to suggest that he's going through some admirable process is disturbing to me. So I don't have any admiration for Donald Trump or his process," Lamont Hill said to Don Lemon on Tuesday's broadcast of CNN Tonight. "I don't have a problem with Jim Brown saying, look, we want to do urban development," Lamont Hill approved. "We want housing. We want to make demands of you, but to say you...

    Here’s some real talk from President Barack Obama, taken from his conversations with Ta-Nehisi Coates at the Atlantic: I’m careful not to attribute any particular resistance or slight or opposition to race. But what I do believe is that if somebody didn’t have a problem with their daddy being employed by the federal government, and didn’t have a problem with the Tennessee Valley Authority electrifying certain communities, and didn’t have a problem with the interstate highway system being built, and didn’t have a problem with the GI Bill, and didn’t have a problem with the [Federal Housing Administration] subsidizing the...

    Now, as he departs office, those hopes have largely evaporated. Tensions between African-American communities and police departments have deteriorated following a slate of high-profile shootings of unarmed black men. ... A majority of Americans now say relations between blacks and whites have worsened since Obama took office. Obama has said he never believed his election could completely erase centuries of racial conflict in America. But the decline in racial ties is nonetheless an ironic legacy for the first African-American president, one Fareed Zakaria explores in the CNN Special Report "The Legacy of Barack Obama" airing Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET....

    Between 1940 and 1970, something remarkable happened to Asian Americans. Not only did they surpass African Americans in average household earnings, but they also closed the wage gap with whites. ... [The real secret to Asian American success was not education] How did that happen? About the same time that Asian Americans were climbing the socioeconomic ladder, they also experienced a major shift in their public image. At the outset of the 20th century, Asian Americans had often been portrayed as threatening, exotic and degenerate. But by the 1950s and 1960s, the idea of the model minority had begun to...

    Why were dirt farmers the official enemy class in both Russia and China? Because if the people can eat, they can hold out against 'thought reform'. In 1792 France, it was anyone with a cross. In 1933 Germany, it was anyone with a star. It doesn't matter which group you target as unreformable bad people--despicables in the current parliance--Alinsky taught that you need some enemy, it doesn't matter which, to use as a standing pretext to 'rub raw the resentments of the people of the community; fan the latent hostilities of many of the people to the point of overt...

    It's time to recognize what freedom really entails. It's not the freedom to destroy by invoking "free speech," but the freedom to work, produce and build a strong family, community and nation The war of semantics has overshadowed the rising tempers among special interest minority groups. In an effort to diffuse or whitewash (look it up if you’re inclined to infer racist overtones) the growing divide between communities in the United States, talking heads have come up with another ‘softening’ term for plain old racism. By employing this newspeak term, “racialism,” pundits seek to deflect from identifying their remarks as...

Everyone else in the situation was Black or accompanying an African-American. I will only describe the circumstances, including the body language, but not using rash judgment by trying to read people's minds.The people in front of us were two women and an child, they had held up the line to do more shopping. The guy behind me was Black and the woman White, the people behind him were both Black.All the people behind in the line were...

    Baltimore is now paying the price for irresponsible words and actions, not only by young thugs in the streets, but also by its mayor and the state prosecutor, both of whom threw the police to the wolves, in order to curry favor with local voters. Now murders in Baltimore in May have been more than double what they were in May last year, and higher than in any May in the past 15 years. Meanwhile, the number of arrests is down by more than 50 percent. Various other communities across the country are experiencing very similar explosions of crime and...

    This lunacy is mainstream thought at the Department of Justice. Vanita Gupta, head of the Department of Justice Civil Rights Division, has told a lawyers group in Colorado that slavery and Jim Crow helped fuel the Ferguson and Baltimore riots. The last few days have seen a number of fanciful stories with the Obama administration seemingly questioning the authority of local police. I’ve long maintained that the administration is nakedly seeking to federalize policing standards — but get rid of local police? No way, that sounds like something broadcast from a shortwave station in Austin, Texas. But then up steps...

    Numerous publications close to the White House have reported that Labor Secretary Tom Perez has emerged as the leading candidate to replace Attorney General Eric Holder. That Perez has a documented and repeating history of dishonesty, racialism, and radicalism shows that this administration feels unrestrained by conventional political wisdom. That the White House is dropping his name before an election should demonstrate to every Republican that Obama is fundamentally transforming politics in corrosive ways that the GOP seems ill-equipped to contain. So who is Tom Perez? Perez ran for Maryland attorney general in 2006. But his campaign ended when he...

    In Ferguson and many towns like it, majority African-American communities most grapple with mostly white county governments. How this leads to dysfunction, racial tension, and a skewed justice system. As we watch Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson bumble his way through press conferences, let’s take a couple steps back and think about how this two-thirds African-American town has retained such a nearly complete all-white power structure. It is partly, as Slate noted, a question of voting power, as whites are more entrenched and vote in greater numbers. But there’s a larger story here about race in America that involves the...
