  • The Search for Racism - It grows more desperate and trivial

    The American Spectator ^ | December 3, 2014 | George Neumayr
    The self-appointed champions of “civil rights” render the term racism increasingly meaningless. Where juries see self-defense, they see homicidal racial animus. They turn aggressors into victims and demand that society accord the victims the status of heroes, deserving of memorials in public schools, a suggestion that the White House recently touted for Michael Brown. A desire for power, not justice, is driving their protests. Their willingness to commit injustices during the protests underscores their lack of interest in justice. They are perfectly willing to harm innocent people for the sake of attaining power. “No justice, no peace” is just a...
  • Teaching American Students They're Victims Is A Grave Disservice

    Goddard College's recent decision to have its students addressed from prison by a convicted cop killer is just one of many unbelievably irresponsible self-indulgences by "educators" in our schools and colleges. Such "educators" teach minorities born with an incredibly valuable windfall gain — American citizenship — that they are victims who have a grievance against people today who have done nothing to them, because of what other people did in other times. If those individuals who feel aggrieved could sell their American citizenship to eager buyers from around the world and leave, everybody would probably be better off. Those who...
  • Washington Post Suspects Racism In GOP Opposition To Rice Nomination

    As I wrote this morning to the NewsBusters editor who alerted me to the Washington Post's editorial, "The GOP’s bizarre attack on Susan Rice," I don't read WaPo much, but somehow assume they're not quite as extreme as the New York Times. Silly me, judging by WaPo's ugly, over-the-top opinion item. Here's the ugly last paragraph from today's editorial: "Could it be, as members of the Congressional Black Caucus are charging, that the signatories of the letter are targeting Ms. Rice because she is an African American woman? The signatories deny that, and we can’t know their hearts. What we...

    Just as one fire involving a MSNBC contributor and their description of President Obama is finally put out, might a new one be starting? Today on Morning Joe, Mark Halperin returned to the show after his suspension for calling Obama a “dick.”Yet moments after Halperin completed his analysis of the debt deal, it was Pat Buchanan’s turn to address his fresh controversy. Last night we questioned the terminology used by Buchanan in a debate with Al Sharpton, and Buchanan didn’t waste any time attempting to set the record straight: “Let me clarify something that happened last night on the Al...

    PARIS (JTA) -- A video of fashion designer John Galliano saying he loves Hitler has emerged after he was suspended from the Christian Dior fashion house for allegedly harassing a couple, using anti-Semitic and racist slurs. The video, posted Monday on the website of the British The Sun newspaper, shows Galliano yelling at a different couple at the same cafe at a different time, and captures him saying "I love Hitler." He also tells the couple "People like you would be dead. Your mothers, your forefathers, would all be f**king gassed." Last week's altercation, which resulted in Galliano's suspension, took...

    The more I think about the dismissal of the Black Panther case in light of the additional video footage that has appeared with Black Panther leadership saying “I hate all white people!” and "that if you want freedom then you gonna have to kill some crackers!" the more I question our leaders and our media. Where is the outrage from the left over this blatant racism? We have not heard a thing from any of our elected officials denouncing this reprehensible behavior. Of course these very same people are quick to label Conservatives, people that attend Tea Parties, and those...

    With friends like the Democrats, black people don’t need any enemies. The latest Democrat poster child comes from Missouri, where Governor Jay Nixon delivers metaphorical lashes to his black constituents. As The Beacon reports: “For the first time since 1971, there will be no African-Americans serving on the nine-person board [UM Board of Curators]. Each hails from one of the state’s nine congressional districts, and all require confirmation by the state Senate. There also is a non-voting student representative. The only African-American curator that had been on the board, Cheryl Walker, is officially off now that Nixon on Tuesday named...

The Governor of Missouri says openly that Barack Obama conspired to misuse his state's law enforcement resources to "threaten and intimidate his critics."We cannot overemphasize the gravity of Governor Blunt's accusation.

My allegiance is to America, its people, and their rights as put forth in that superb document. I shall not discard my principles and commitment to my God and Country, just because. I applaud Senator Obama for his accomplishment, however, there is no way I will vote for someone that is so contrary to my beliefs in lower taxes, limited government, individual...

    Black conservatives conflicted on Obama campaign By FREDERIC J. FROMMER, Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON - Black conservative talk show host Armstrong Williams has never voted for a Democrat for president. That could change this year with Barack Obama as the Democratic Party's nominee. "I don't necessarily like his policies; I don't like much that he advocates, but for the first time in my life, history thrusts me to really seriously think about it," Williams said. "I can honestly say I have no idea who I'm going to pull that lever for in November. And to me, that's incredible." Just as...

    LOS ANGELES - Alejandro "Bird" Martinez and a crew of fellow gangbangers were joyriding in a stolen van when they came upon a black man parking his car — and decided to kill him. Three of them riddled Kenneth Kurry Wilson and his Cadillac with bullets from a .357-caliber revolver and a 9 mm semiautomatic and blasts from a 12-gauge shotgun. This month, Martinez and three other members of the Avenues, a Hispanic gang entrenched in one Los Angeles neighborhood, were convicted of federal hate crimes usually tagged on white supremacists. Although the slaying was seven years ago, the verdict...

Normally this is the type of thing becomes a mainstream media frenzy. Normally this is the lead report on every network national and local telecast. Rodney King was. So were the incidents in Inglewood and Cincinnati. This also proved true nearly five years ago, when a similar incident occurred just before the Republican convention in Philadelphia. This time there is no saturation coverage in the national media. Charles Baum, who is white and...

Scarborough has used the airwaves to initiate a campaign to have MCI fire Glover as its spokesperson due to the actor’s position against the war in Iraq.

I didn't catch much from Bloom-- Mr. Inter-Continental, the TV face known for speaking a few lines of French. Contrary to the so-called 'stain', this group was impressed that the criticism largely came from within, signaling a change in the party. Also noting Bush's sincere anger, noting how the jovial birthday scene laughed at all the 'good ol' boy jokes', but went stone cold silent at Lott's racial undertones.

    The bogus anti-Muslim hate-crime wave Posted: December 13, 2002 1:00 a.m. Eastern By Matt Kaufman © 2002 WorldNetDaily.com Did vengeful Americans unleash an orgy of anti-Muslim violence in the wake of 9-11? You'd think so to judge by the media coverage that followed the recent release of the FBI's 2001 hate-crimes report. Reality's another story. First, the media version. "According to the FBI, hate crimes in America targeting Muslims or people who just appear to be Middle Eastern surged in the aftermath of 9-11," Dan Rather announced grimly. "There were 500 such hate-motivated attacks reported last year; the year before,...

No contract has been signed yet, but Memphis City Schools has agreed to pay millions more than necessary to replace heating and cooling in the two schools, according to external estimates. The overpayment has staggering implications for taxpayers: The two schools are first in a group of 26 waiting for new air-conditioning and heating.

    It might be easier if all racists were like Bobby Frank Cherry: easily identified, cartoon character good old boys. It might be simpler if all racism manifested itself in violent, clumsy ways. But like any virus, in order to survive, racism adapts to its conditions. These complex times call for a more subtle approach. Today, some racists wear suits and ties, run big bureaucracies or work in government and private corporations. Some are those who have declared racism dead, that the playing field has been leveled, and that affirmative action unnecessary and in itself racist. Today’s racists are those who...
