  • Mother Jones: "Eating Three Meals a Day is Racist"

    Pundit Press ^ | 3/5/15 | Aurelius
    In one of the dumbest articles ever to see the light of day, Mother Jones has declared that eating three meals a day is "racist." The piece, titled "Why You Should Stop Eating Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner," was written by Kiera Butler, a senior editor, and was published yesterday. How is eating food racist? Butler explains that white Europeans brought the tradition of eating three meals a day with them to the "New World." "When European settlers got to America, they also imported their meal habits," Butler writes, "a light meal—maybe cold mush and radishes—in the morning, a heavier, cooked...

    Political correctness is a pathological disorder. You can't say "niggardly" or "black holes" or "chink in the armor" without provoking protests or risking your job. You can't invoke the Constitution or call illegal behavior "illegal" without being accused of hatred. And now, you can't goof around at a high school basketball game in silly costumes without the world accusing you of "racial insensitivity." Last week, thanks to hyperbolic grievance-mongers and irresponsible reporters, the students of Holy Spirit High School in Absecon, N.J., garnered international headlines and Internet infamy. "Shocking moment students at Catholic school dressed as monkeys and a banana...

    It seems like not a day goes by without me reading about some new absurdity. I ran across an article written by some left-wing lunatic who purports to be an English teacher and who is part of what she calls the “social justice movement”. She writes for a blog called Everyday Feminist. She claims that demanding that everyone speak proper English grammar is “grammar snobbery” and is oppressive and racist. Why is it oppressive and racist? Because the dictionary was written by a white supremacist, heteropatriarchal system:

    I owe Democrats an apology. Flipping through some of my hate mail (I lead a tremendously exciting life, as you can see) it dawned on me that it’s quite possible conservatives are a little too hard on our liberal friends. (Also: I’m trolling for more hate mail.) And so, with reserved humility, I sat down with a drink (less than 32 ounces) and a pen, and made a list of things for which we conservatives ought to apologize. It’s the least I can do:I am sorry about labeling Net Neutrality “broadband-socialism”. Clearly my distrust in the folks who brought us...
  • 5 Signs Scott Walker Is Using GOP’s Racist ‘Southern Strategy’ to Win in 2016

    Global News ^ | March 3, 2015 | must have been a group effort
    Walker demonizes unions, the poor and voters of color in order to appeal to whites. Wisconsin Republican Gov. Scott Walker’s drive for an anti-labor “right to work” law covering private-sector workers is deeply rooted in the racism of the Deep South’s former slaveholding states. They are yet more evidence that he is following a template known as the Republican Party’s “Southern strategy,” which plays to white voters’ racial resentment, even though his budding presidential campaign is based in snow-encrusted Wisconsin. This emerging strategy is reminiscent of Richard Nixon’s original “Southern strategy” of 1968 and Ronald Reagan’s 1980 campaign kickoff event....

Earlier today on Sirius XM Urban View, an African-American talk station, the guest was Daryl Scott, president of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History. The conversation turned to STEM — science, technology, engineering, and math — education, and the origins of the ongoing push to encourage institutions and students to focus on those subjects. Can you guess what happened? In 1983, the guest explained, a commission empaneled by the secretary of education issued...

    Conversations about reparations are not about money but about people and about the way that people are seen and valued in our society. These are difficult conversations, and we have found that what is most challenging about the idea of reparations today is the notion that America still owes a debt to black people.. We have spent the past eight months wrestling with the question about whether reparations — as Ta-Nehisi Coates so eloquently argued — could ameliorate inequality for black people in America. We believe that the answer to this question is connected to how well one can understand...

    Outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder just couldn’t help himself. With his time as the nation’s chief law enforcement official coming to a close, Holder reflected on one of his deepest regrets: Failing to deliver civil rights charges for the variety figures embroiled in racial controversies over the course of his tenure.When a Florida jury failed to convict George Zimmerman for role in the death of Trayvon Martin, the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division opened an investigation to determine whether Zimmerman had violated Martin’s civil rights. It was a response to the outrage displayed by those who were invested...

    The breakdown of the black family is a sensitive topic, though it's not new and it's not in dispute. President Barack Obama, who grew up with an absent father, often urges black men to be responsible parents. Nor is there any doubt that African-American children would be better off living with their married parents. Kids who grow up in households headed by a single mother are far more likely than others to be poor, quit school, get pregnant as teens and end up in jail. But these facts were once inflammatory. Fifty years ago next month, a Labor Department official...

    At its essence, politics is the art of answering the question, "What's in it for me?" If a politician wants to win a vote, whether it's from citizens on Election Day or from another politician in some legislative hall somewhere, he needs to have an answer for the ubiquitous question. And generally speaking, when Republican leaders have put that question to Barack Obama, the president has been unable to provide a viable answer. But sometimes it is. Like when former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani proclaimed last week that Obama does not love America. Guiliani might not have been...

    Rudy Giuliani entered McCarthyist territory with his grotesque personal attack on President Barack Obama’s patriotism. Speaking to a hardcore Republican crowd, New York City’s former mayor said: “I know this is a horrible thing to say. But I do not believe that the president loves America.” Giuliani is 100% right, what he said was horrible, yet he said it anyway, which makes Giuliani a horrible human being. By uttering such defamatory words he instantly went from America’s Mayor to America’s Mooncalf. While Giuliani’s insults may have thrilled the Republican base, they turned out to be baseless.

I had no idea that it was acceptable in public high schools in California to promote the idea that an entire race of people are racist simply based on the color of their skin.

The Fresh Prince of Bel Air has also sparked rumors that he may be making a return to the music business with the help of one of hip-hop’s biggest stars, Kanye West. Smith has spent more than 25 years in the acting business, something that often leaves big stars disconnected from the issues impacting people who don’t benefit from fame and...

    Last night during fairly boring Academy Awards ceremony, singer John Legend and hip-hop rapper Common performed their Oscar-nominated and Oscar-winning song “Glory,” from the movie “Selma.” Aside from a few lyrical references, the song is pretty good. The performance itself was stirring, resulting in a standing ovation the performance received, accompanied with several people- Oprah, Chris Pine, Jessica Chastain, among others- visibly moved to tears. But, the performance was overshadowed by the politically incoherent acceptance speech John Legend and Common gave- more so, John Legend- after winning their Oscar. Legend started his politically-charged acceptance speech by saying, “We wrote this...

Even though the FCC hasn't yet ruled on the proposed merger between Comcast and Time Warner Cable, one group has already filed a lawsuit claiming at least $20 billion in damages from the way the two giants allegedly discriminate against black-owned media. The complaint, filed in California on Friday, comes from the National Association of African-American Owned Media, which also filed a similar suit against AT&T and DirecTV in December. This time, the plaintiff is not only targeting both Comcast and TWC on...

However small, the demonstration will revive debate about diversity at the Oscars-awarding Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, whose voting members are overwhelmingly white and with an average age in their 60s. "The goal of the protest is to send a message to the Academy, send a message to Hollywood, send a message to the film industry," said Earl Ofari Hutchinson, head of the LA Urban Policy Roundtable group.

    Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani accused President Barack Obama of not loving his country. Some agreed with those comments; others thought they were silly and even a little offensive. When the former mayor went on to defend that assertion, he insisted that Obama’s personal background and progressives’ antipathy toward European colonial history generally informed his opinions on matters including Islamic radicalism and the moral value of the Crusades. Again, some thought these remarks were tasteless and unfounded while others believed that Giuliani had a point. The press, predictably, fell all to one side of this controversy. Many in...

    In an article published in Time, one of their writers states that she finds "white men" attractive. The only logical conclusion for her is that she is a racist. Oddly, instead of posting the article under "Opinions" or "Op-eds," Time actually released the article under "Race," as if the article were fact. The piece, not ironically called "I Think I’m Attracted to White Men Because of My Own Internalized Racism," was written by Keziyah Lewis. Lewis begins the article by explaining that she hates having crushes because she has "social anxiety." The article then takes an odd turn, as she...

    Protest at the Ferguson Police Department.“Ferguson” has become shorthand for police brutality without indictment. It is idiomatic for injustice, for protest (violent and nonviolent), for segregation. The city of Ferguson is now treated as the epicenter for racial injustice in this country, although, of course, Ferguson’s injustices are not unique. Its scars reflect those of many American cities, really. But as that community attempts to heal, perhaps it can offer a path toward transformation. “There’s a short memory in the American psyche. People don’t remember that people’s parents lived in segregated America—some communities are still de facto segregated,” says David...

    TUBA CITY, Ariz. (RNS) As I pass through the Navajo Nation on my 4,000-mile drive across America, I catch a disturbing glimpse of a white-power insurgency happening in all regions. White settlement of the Southwest meant dislodging the native population at gunpoint. U.S. Army troops slaughtered the Navajo at will. Whites broke one treaty after another, then forced the Navajo in 1864 onto a “Long Walk” of 300 miles away from their tribal lands. When a pregnant Navajo woman came to childbirth, an impatient Army soldier simply shot her. The Navajo were allowed to return four years later to a...

    Today's liberals are not racists, but they often behave that way. They would benefit immensely from considering some of the arguments in award-winning scholar Dr. Shelby Steele's forthcoming book, "Shame: How America's Past Sins Have Polarized Our Country." Steele, a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, explains that in matters of race, there is an ideological vision that completely ignores truth -- a vision he calls "poetic truth." In literature, poetic license takes liberties with grammatical rules, as well as realities, in order to create a more beautiful or powerful effect than would be otherwise possible. Liberals have a poetic...

Unfortunately, Blacks are bound to be seen and heard when 400 to 500 murders are committed each year on Chicago’s West and South sides. That’s the sort of...

    In light of Brian Williams sanction, MSNBC host's lies deserve review With its swift and severe punishment of Brian Williams, NBCUniversal declared yesterday that it will not stand for on-air talent lying to viewers. Now that the media conglomerate has delineated that bright line, when does the Rev. Al Sharpton’s suspension without pay begin?

    I didn’t intend to file a report on the Grammys this year, butt alas I feel compelled as the politics of race have once again injected themselves into what should have been just another celebrity self-celebratory event. It wasn’t a shut out of black entertainers like the Oscar nominations, butt Beyoncé did not win the album of the year award as Kanye West felt she should have. So he took it upon himself, just as he did when Taylor Swift won instead of BFF Bey in 2009, to take to the stage in order to let the world know that...

    Bashing white America and stirring the pot of racial discord has become in vogue all year round. But every February, the usual suspects (race profiteers and America haters) use Black History Month to double down on their rhetoric. Their operatives who control our public schools lay guilt trips on white students for being white while teaching blacks kids to feel victimized and resentful. White America is once again beat over the head with slavery as liberals argue the need for federal government payback (reparations). In a nutshell, the Left's annual message is America is still racist and owes blacks, big...

    Criticisms of America's first black president, sometimes, come with a wink and a nudge. A union rep in coal country delivered his in carefully coded language. "He was supposed to represent both sides," the West Virginia man said in a recent interview, describing his disenchantment with Barack Obama, whom he'd once supported. What sides was he talking about? The man paused at the question, cast a furtive glance around the room and looked down at the little machine recording the conversation. "You know," he said in a hushed tone, "his mom was as white as you and me." He completed...
  • Anna Duggar Causes “Controversy” Over Black History Month Tweet

    Anna Duggar has done it now. Online "entertainment" news sites are up in arms that a woman would actually express her…gasp…opinion via Twitter! The Duggars are known for being unapologetically pro-life, and they are absurdly hated by those who rabidly defend a choice their mothers never made (ironically being alive to spew their pro-abortion nonsense). What did Anna do that has E! Online, RadarOnline, FishWrapper, InTouchWeekly and even Mommyish and Opposing Views so riled? She retweeted a Black History Month meme that I created and posted, via The Radiance Foundation, to highlight abortion’s devastating impact in the black community. “Human...

    As the recollection of Trayvon Martin hoodie marches dims and “Hands up! Don’t shoot!” chants softly echo, here is some American (my name for Black) History Month advice for Black liberals. Since “White Supremacy” expressed as public safety is their obsession, I submit the following solutions: 1. Avoid Being a Felon. The behavior connected with serious crime amounts to a blinking red light for police officers as it warns them: “Stop me, I’m up to no good.” It’s behavior which includes: loitering in high crime street areas and/or where you were arrested before; wearing the “uniform of the day” thug...

    Gospel songs rang through the sanctuary of a Florida church Sunday afternoon just before Trayvon Martin’s father exhorted the congregation to combat gun violence in black communities or risk losing a generation of young adults. Tracy Martin told a “Black Lives Matter” ceremony at the Praise and Deliverance Church of God By Faith that while police shootings of young black men is a serious issue, it’s not the biggest one in black neighborhoods. A far larger problem, Martin said, is the current generation of African-American children growing up without adult guidance and parental love. While acknowledging America’s intransigent racial divide....

    Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg reportedly argued Friday that guns need to be kept out of the hands of minorities in order to keep them alive. While speaking at the Aspen Institute, Mr. Bloomberg, 72, said 95 percent of murders fall into a specific category: a male minority between the ages of 15 and 25, The Aspen Times reported. Cities need to get guns out of this group’s hands and keep them alive, the former three-term mayor said, according to The Times. “These kids think they’re going to get killed anyway because all their friends are getting killed,” Mr....

    According to The Aspen Times, Bloomberg addressed a variety of topics, and after commenting on poverty and education, he discussed guns. The Times reported that he said, “Cities need to get guns out of [the] … hands” of persons who are “male, minority, and between the ages of 15 and 25.”

    Every now and then, liberals let their masks slip off to reveal their true feelings and agendas. That was the case Friday, when former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg took the stage at the Aspen Institute to discuss marijuana legalization, which he decried as stupid, according to the Aspen Times. He also touted vocational education and, of course, his favorite topic, gun grabbing. The latter point was glossed over by the Times but deserves a hard look. Not only did Bloomberg call for taking away Americans’ right to arms, as he usually does, but this time, he suggested targeting...

    The families of a victim and his killer displayed grief, forgiveness and redemption Thursday as a Spokane judge sent 17-year-old Kenan Adams-Kinard to prison for 20 years in the beating death of World War II veteran Delbert “Shorty” Belton. The 2013 murder garnered national media attention as much for Belton’s status as a war veteran as for the racial overtones: The two teens suspected of attacking and robbing him as he sat in his parked car outside the Eagles Lodge in north Spokane are black; Belton, who later died from the beating, is white. Demetruis Glenn, the other teen accused...
