    The crash near the interchange of the 118 and 210 freeways left others hospitalized in critical conditionA big rig driver suffered what authorities described as a "coughing attack" at the wheel before crashing off a Southern California freeway and slamming into a pickup in a fatal collision that involved several other vehicles. The northern San Fernando Valley crash, which left four people hospitalized in critical condition, occurred under the 210 Freeway-118 Freeway interchange near the Paxton Street exit. The big rig crashed off the 210 Freeway freeway and down an embankment before crossing an exit ramp and slamming into the...
  • (Indiana) School District Excludes All White Students From Third-Grade Field Trips To Local Colleges

    Public school officials in South Bend, Ind. are segregating elementary schools students by race and ferrying black students — and only black students — on visits to local colleges. The students facing racial segregation in America in the year 2015 are third graders at seven elementary schools, reports local ABC affiliate WBND. School district officials say they do not intend for the taxpayer-funded reenactment of Jim Crow-era race racial segregation to be discriminatory. Instead, they say, the intent is to inform black students about college because low numbers of black students attend college.

    According to a teacher at Cornell University, race is a determinant of "coolness." Yesterday, Dexter Thomas, who is helping teach the course "Asian 1104 "FWS: let's talk about cool stuff, #swag"" at Cornell this semester, wrote an article in the Guardian titled, "Why white people aren’t as cool as black people." According to Thomas, as opposed to whites, "Black people have an effortless cool about them, almost no matter what they do." President Obama, Thomas continues, "seems to be the King Midas of political cool. Any topic he touches – whether it’s climate change, rap music, or health care –...

The free event was sponsored by the YWCA of Greater Portland at Marantha Church on Northeast 12th Avenue. Fulton, whose teenage son was shot and killed by George Zimmerman in an incident that sparked a nationwide debate about race, talked about transforming the tragedy into social change. “It’s not a speech, it’s not a lecture,” Fulton said. “It’s a message.” The mother of two shared the...

In a new article titled, “Black people are not here to teach you: What so many white Americans just can’t grasp,” author Kali Holloway says she has had enough. “America loves teachable moments, those real-life Very Special Episodes of supposed cross-cultural exchange and transracial learning,” she beings. “The problem with those teachable moments,” she scoffs, “is that the same people always end up doing all the teaching.” No more, says Holloway. “In matters of race, the marginalized are tasked with being educators,” she writes, “That is,...

      The Democratic Party has been waging war against Blacks since the election of the first Democratic President, Andrew Jackson who owned slaves. They were the party of slavery whose voters included the cotton farmers. In their party platforms from 1840 to 1860, the Democrats supported slavery. In the 1860 elections, the country was deeply divided. Abraham Lincoln and his main Republican rival, William H Seward both wanted to abolish slavery. As we all know Lincoln won the nomination and later was elected President. On the Democratic side, the party was split between Northern and Southern Democrats. The southern...

The parents argued for a tougher sentence for the man convicted of busting into their Louisville home at gunpoint while their daughter watched "Spongebob Square Pants," according to the Courier-Journal. Judge Olu Stevens blasted Jordan and Tommy Gray's victim impact statement at a court hearing in February and again recently in a Facebook post he later deleted.

    It’s never been a secret that the politically regressive “progressives” on the New York Times editorial board hate freedom. And so, in last Sunday’s lead editorial, they came out full square for a totalitarian state under the iron boot of Supreme Leader Barack Obama. The Times is concerned that, as the failed Obama presidency heads into the final stretch and his policies become a greater concern to voting Americans, frightened citizens, especially those that have never voted before, will continue replacing tangential establishment Republicans in Congress with robust conservative-libertarian-tea partiers. That is why the Times finds the return of a...

    Lawrence Wilkerson is a contradictory figure. Wilkerson is a career military man, who served as chief of staff for Secretary of State Colin Powell; but he has also voiced reluctance to involve American forces in foreign conflicts, and slammed the Bush administration for its handling of the Iraq War. He is also a lifelong Republican who, far from just criticizing his party, has actually gone on the warpath against it at times. When Powell was attacked by conservatives in 2012 for endorsing Barack Obama for reelection — Mitt Romney surrogate John Sununu famously suggested that the endorsement was motivated by...

This has brought lots of grumbles and raised eyebrows from GOP hard liners who say that he isn’t the right fit for the GOP trying desperately to take back the White House.

His letter was titled, “Intentional or not, microaggressions severely impact underrepresented members of society.” According to Timmons, people who “are not privileged” are suffering greatly from the intentional and unintentional triggers that others are causing. “On a campus,” he writes, ” — and nation at large — in which whiteness, patriarchy, heteronormativity, cissexism, ableism and classism prevail, students that are not privileged by these constructs often have difficulty navigating hegemonic, oppressive environments.” Timmons writes about different maladies...

He gets several yards away before the officer aims his gun toward his back. Eight shots later, the man falls to the ground. By that point, he appears to be at least 25 feet from the officer.

    Is Ayaan Hirsi Ali a racist? She was born in Somalia, from which she escaped to avoid an arranged marriage, and she eventually became a member of Parliament in the Netherlands. She helped produce a film with Theo Van Gogh which criticized Islam's treatment of women. Van Gogh was shot to death by a Muslim in retaliation, and a note was pinned to his chest with a knife — a note that threatened Ayaan Hirsi Ali. She made her way to the United States, and has since written two books critical of Islam:

In addition, the groups plan a flurry of demonstrations and news conferences focused on two other goals — opposing state- level religious objections bills, seen as discriminatory against gays...

Many people believe that white privilege is a tool that is used to make white Americans feel guilty about their success by claiming that the mere fact that they were born with white skin gave them an upper hand in life (especially white heterosexual males). Once made to feel guilty, the white individuals soon begin to hate themselves for...

Chief Greg Suhr announced Friday that he has asked a police oversight committee to approve firing the officers. Six others face disciplinary actions that include reassignment to positions that don't have contact with the public. Another officer tied to the investigation already has resigned. The text messages "are of such despicable thinking that those responsible clearly fall below the minimum standards required to be a police officer," Suhr said in...

In this clip a man who appeared to be a manager attempted to get protesters out of the eatery to no avail — not even when a woman told them, “You’re scaring the children!” (VIDEO-AT-LINK)[continued]
  • Too many Asians? NY Dem lawmaker explores segregating public housing by race

    Apparently upset that “blocs” of Asians are taking over blocks of public housing in her district, a New York City councilwoman last week suggested “culture” be included when assigning people to public housing. “There could be some benefit to housing people by culture,” Councilwoman Laurie Cumbo told the New York Post. “I think it needs to be discussed.” lauriecumbo0330 Photo: New York Post If Cumbo weren’t a black woman Democrat from New York City in 2015 – if she were, say, a white male Democrat from Alabama in 1965 – everyone would know exactly what she was talking about when...

    Daily Caller ^ | 3/30/2015
    New York City’s 334 public housing developments’ bland, dilapidated-before-they-were-even-built housing projects have blighted the urban landscape for decades. Now, though, a Big Apple councilwoman has added further insult by bizarrely endorsing the segregation of residents living in two housing projects in Brooklyn’s Fort Greene neighborhood by ethnic groups. The Daily Caller is not making this up. The councilwoman is Democrat Laurie Cumbo, the New York Post reports. Cumbo, who is black, is concerned that “blocs” of Asians have been moving into the Fort Greene housing projects. “How is it that one specific ethnic group has had the opportunity to move...

    This weekend Kirsten Powers and Jonathan Merritt stirred up controversy by writing in the Daily Beast that Christians have no biblical basis for claiming that religious belief should allow them to refuse to serve a same-sex wedding:Before considering legal rights, Christians wrestling with this issue must first resolve the primary issue of whether the Bible calls Christians to deny services to people who are engaging in behavior they believe violates the teachings of Christianity regarding marriage. The answer is, it does not. Nor does the Bible teach that providing such a service should be construed as participation or affirmation. Yet...
  • Video Captures Violent Attack on St. Louis Train That Began After Michael Brown Question

    WARNING: THIS VIDEO CONTAINS IMAGES AND LANGUAGE THAT MAY OFFEND SOME VIEWERS. When one man sat down next to a second man in a St. Louis light rail car late Monday and asked him his opinion on the shooting of Michael Brown, it was not the beginning of a discussion. It was the start of an assault, police said. The second man, who was white, didn’t want to answer the question. Then the first man, who was black, boxed him in the face. Two more African-American men joined in the beating, according to a police report.

    During a heated debate over an Indiana “religious freedom” bill, a Democratic representative took the opportunity to accuse the child of one of her colleagues of racism. The child is an 18-month-old toddler. “I told Jud McMillin I love his son, but he’s scared of me because of my color and that’s horrible,” Summers said, to groans. “It’s true,” she insisted. She urged McMillin to “introduce your child to some people of color so that he won’t live his life as a prejudiced person.”

    Salon.com has declared that if you are white, you are racist. Period. No questions asked. How you feel about different races, how you act with other people, and what you've done in your life matter not. If you are white, you are a racist and that's that. Salon announced the statement on their official twitter page. In it they stated unequivocally, "If you're white, you're racist and don't realize it:" The site somehow doesn't realize the irony of judging people solely on their skin is the definition of racism... and they did it. The tweet linked to an article titled,...

    By now you’ve already heard about the “backlash” being directed toward the entire state of Indiana over the recent passage of their new religious freedom law. The NCAA is hinting about moving their basketball tournament away. They might even lose their comic book convention. (How much of a “loss” that would be is subjective.) But one of the more interesting threats being made comes from the CEO of online review site Yelp. Yelp CEO Jeremy Stoppelman isn’t happy. He penned an open letter on Thursday bashing Indiana’s new religious freedom bill, railing against “laws that would allow for business to...

    What if it's not injustice that has led so many blacks across America to feel disenfranchised? What if it's judgment? Last week on two separate occasions guests on Sean Hannity's radio program reiterated Jesse Jackson's decades old mantra that "blacks can't be racist because we have no institutional power." This may be a clandestine way to excuse blacks for destroying cities like Ferguson, MO in the name of justice for Michael Brown, but it's hardly worth addressing seriously. Unknown to many is the fact that blacks hold more government jobs by percentage than any other ethnicity. In an article entitled...

    The already contentious debate over Indiana’s proposed “religious freedom” bill took a surreal twist Monday afternoon when — in the midst of discussion on the bill — a Democratic lawmaker said that a Republican lawmaker’s child was “scared” of her because she is black. The comment by Rep. Vanessa Summers drew audible gasps, in no small part because the child — the son of Rep. Jud McMillin — is 18 months old. “I told Jud McMillin I love his son, but he’s scared of me because of my color,” Summers told McMillin, who is white, during debate over the Religious...
