    Here are the best responses to Phillips' question, "Do you think that is committing cultural appropriation?": "Uh ... what?" "I guess it could be perceived as that." "I don't like when people do it to my culture, so, it's just kind of, like, how can I say I don’t like people who do it to my culture and then do it to someone else's?" "Uh ... hm. I honestly don't know." "I honestly have never even thought about it." "That's, like, a really touchy subject. I don't like, to, like, make an assumption about that when I'm not Irish." "Honestly,...

    DOUGLAS COUNTY, Ga. - The Douglas County school district is investigating a complaint that a 7-year-old girl played a racist character in a school play. In a video of the play, Anastasia Bertram can be seen holding up a sign saying, "Please go home" on one side and "Cursed is the man who integrates" on the other side. Anastasia's parents said she was asked by her teacher, Jamila James, to fill the role of a white girl opposed to school desegregation during a March 2 play at Burnett Elementary School. Her teacher told the parents Anastasia volunteered after another student...

    I was driving around St. Louis last fall, very near Ferguson, where recently a white cop shot dead a black teen. A black man, V, was waiting at a bus stop alone. I figured I could get him home half an hour earlier than the bus, so I stopped and offered him a ride. As we talked, I learned that his entire life experience has been in one locale, North St. Louis. I asked him what the news is around here and what's going on. I referenced Ferguson. That got V going.

    “Microaggression” list scorns would-be bigots An official University of California list of racist “microaggressions” asserts that saying “I’m not racist” is racist. The university guide defines microaggressions as, “everyday verbal, nonverbal, and environmental slights, snubs, or insults, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative messages to target persons based solely upon their marginalized group membership.” Examples listed on the university’s official website include telling someone, “you speak English very well,” telling an Asian person that they are good at math and insisting that “America is a melting pot”. Using the phrase, “I’m not racist, I have several...

    National Geographic acknowledged on Monday that it covered the world through a racist lens for generations, with its magazine portrayals of bare-breasted women and naive brown-skinned tribesmen as savage, unsophisticated and unintelligent. "We had to own our story to move beyond it," editor-in-chief Susan Goldberg told The Associated Press in an interview about the yellow-bordered magazine's April issue, which is devoted to race.

    ational Geographic has admitted its past reporting on different cultures around the world was racist. The US magazine acknowledged in an editorial that for decades its “coverage was racist”, adding that the only way to rise above its past was to “acknowledge it”. For its upcoming issue, dedicated solely to race and how it “defines, separates, and unites us”, the magazine asked a preeminent historian to examine the publication’s own history.

"On behalf of Pearl Street Films, Matt Damon, @BenAffleck, Jennifer Todd, Drew Vinton & I will be adopting the #InclusionRider for all of our projects moving forward," Cox DiGiovanni tweeted Monday, responding to Michael B. Jordan's tweet from last week in which he announced that his production company, Outlier Society, would also begin adopting inclusion riders. An inclusion rider is a reference to the belief by some that there should...

    (Skip) “Most evangelical Christians like me exclaimed, ‘Who are these people?’” wrote Mark Galli, the editor in chief of Christianity Today, in his essay. “‘I know hardly anyone, let alone any evangelical Christian[s], who voted for Trump.’” In trying to understand Trump-supporting evangelicals, journalists and commentators have often smoothed over the vast diversity within evangelicalism. “Many of us shake our heads at the ‘evangelical leaders’ that the news media anoints for us,” wrote Tom Lin, the president of InterVarsity Fellowship, in his essay. (Skip) Fundamentalism, argued Mark Labberton, the president of Fuller Theological Seminary, is the driving force behind the...

    Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif) promised an audience in Selma, Alabama that "we will provide reparations for slavery to all African-Americans by 2020 if we take back the House this November. We are going to divert those billion dollar tax cuts Trump gave to corporations and white people and pay off every Black man, woman, and child in America, except for 'Uncle Toms' like Ben Carson." Waters brushed aside difficulties in trying to distinguish between whites who owned slaves and the millions of white soldiers who fought in the Civil War that ended slavery in this country. "It's not about guilt...

    Whites in South Africa face uncompensated land seizure, as recently amended by law—a move drawing comparisons to early Zimbabwe, and putting the fate of South Africa’s white population in question. The South African Parliament recently passed a motion to amend laws so that land could be taken from white farmers without compensation, although a committee will review the decision and is expected to report back by Aug. 30, The Independent reported. Quartz reported that the vote to amend the constitution passed on Feb. 27. The move to legally allow expropriation of white-owned land in South Africa comes as Zimbabwe that...

    My friend was even annoyed by praises showered upon Billy Graham in response to his death. Though he would deny it, my friend has a deep hatred for whites. And yet I have witnessed God use him to bless people. I've come to realize that neither facts nor truth can penetrate my friend erroneously viewing white Americans as blacks' nemesis. Therefore, I am praying for God to heal his vengeful heart against white Americans. On the bright side, I caught an interview with black Supreme Court justice Clarence Thomas, a hero of mine. Justice Thomas said he is worn down...

    (Skip) For the in group, it’s easy to see the appeal of the philosophy. There’s an animating purpose — fighting injustice, racism, and inequality. There’s the original sin of “privilege.” There’s a conversion experience — becoming “woke.” And much as the Christian church puts a premium on each person’s finding his or her precise role in the body of Christ, intersectionality can provide a person with a specific purpose and role based on individual identity and experience. The faith is fierce. Intolerance in the name of tolerance is the norm. (Skip) Indeed, you can often prove your faith through your...

    Despite the present situation of the academy, some of us nevertheless remain committed to the classical ideal of a liberal arts education, and we remain hopeful that the militant left that has taken control of the University will not succeed in its endeavor to vanquish this ideal.This being said, it would be dishonest to say that there isn’t an all-too frequent number of occasions when my hope is tested.Recent happenings provide several cases in point. 1. At the University of Chicago, several activist student groups—Reparations at UChicago, the UChicago Socialists, UofC Resists, a graduate student union, and a local chapter of...

    Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan is an anti-Semite. This isn't in question. It's a fact, and one the minister continues to underscore with each speech. Last week, he spoke before the 2018 Saviours' Day event in Chicago. He stated: "White folks are going down. And Satan is going down. And Farrakhan, by God's grace, has pulled the cover off the eyes of that Satanic Jew, and I'm here to say your time is up, your world is through." Just for good measure, he added, "Jews were responsible for all of this filth and degenerate behavior that Hollywood is putting...

    Authorities are so far refusing to point to racism as a motive after a black man who vowed to shoot up a school and “kill all white people” reportedly murdered six random white people along biking trails in Kansas City, Missouri. According to this, police say 22-year-old Frederick Demond went on a random killing spree last August, leaving six strangers dead along walking and biking paths. Five were middle-aged white men, while one victim was a homeless white woman. All six had been shot with a handgun. Scott was indicted for all six murders late last week. The Washington Post...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer voted against one of President Trump’s judicial nominees simply because he is a white male. “The nomination of Marvin Quattlebaum [the judicial nominee] speaks to the overall lack of diversity in President Trump’s selections for the federal judiciary,” Schumer said on the Senate floor Wednesday. “Quattlebaum replaces not one, but two scuttled Obama nominees who were African-American.” The Democratic leader lamented the fact that the majority of Trump’s nominees were white. Regardless of Quattlebaum’s qualifications, Schumer thought he was unfit for the job due to his race.

    Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters alleged Sunday that President Donald Trump is "racist" because he questioned her IQ level. On Saturday night, President Trump addressed the annual Gridiron Club Dinner, an event that is known for its humor. Trump took jabs at his own administration and many of his rivals, and at one point joked that Rep. Waters should "immediately take an IQ test." [Snip] The California Democrat did not think the joke was funny and questioned Trump’s own mental agility before accusing him of racism.
