  • Ferguson protest at Missouri State homecoming elicits slurs

    Demonstrators at Missouri State University who were met with racial slurs and gun gestures during a silent march protesting fatal police shootings are receiving apologies and support from the school. University officials said in a statement Tuesday that the school does not condone or tolerate the harassment of people who were exercising their free speech rights during the protest through Saturday's homecoming festivities, The Springfield News-Leader reported....

    The Week's The Compass ^ | October 23, 2014 | Marc Ambinder
    In August, after a Ferguson, Missouri police officer shot and killed a young, unarmed black man named Michael Brown, the reaction by local residents, civil rights activists, and the media instantly went nuclear. The DNA of our political and legal systems rest on principles of equality and color-blindness, and here was yet another example of a major genetic mutation that we've been unable to fix: young black men being murdered by the police because they're young and black. Still. Even in 2014, this happened, at a time when adults are supposed to be racially enlightened. Ferguson checked several boxes. The...

    Ferguson, Mo., police officer Darren Wilson shot and killed unarmed teenager Michael Brown after they fought for control of the officer’s gun and after Brown moved toward Wilson as they faced off in the street, according to interviews, news accounts and the full report of the St. Louis County autopsy of Brown’s body. Because Wilson is white and Brown was black, the case has ignited intense debate over how police interact with African American men. But more than a half-dozen unnamed black witnesses have provided testimony to a St. Louis County grand jury that largely supports Wilson’s account of events...

    June 9, 2014: For years, President Obama and black civil rights leaders have been telling the nation that voter ID laws are being pushed by racist Republicans who want to disenfranchise blacks. "The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act was passed in to law nearly five decades ago," Mr. Obama told a conference hosted by Al Sharpton earlier this year. Dismissing the notion that voter ID laws could have anything to do with ballot integrity, the president said that "the real voter fraud is people trying to...

    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | October 21, 2014 | Alana Goodman
    Arkansas Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor argued that the federal government’s desegregation of Arkansas’s largest public school in 1957 was an “unwilling invasion” that took “a local problem out of the local authorities’ hands” and led to deep suspicions of democracy in the state, according to a copy of his college thesis obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. Written in 1985, the 30-page paper—which also suggested that the state’s Democratic Party was hindering economic progress, and attributed policies such as welfare and the Equal Rights Amendment to “wild-eyed liberals”—could add to Pryor’s difficulties as he fights to protect his seat from...

A reader has sent us this early-voting turnout mailer sent out by the Georgia Democratic party that focuses on the shooting of Michael Brown and subsequent unrest in Ferguson, Mo. It contains an interesting line that concedes the problem of low interest among black voters: “If we want a better, safer future for our children, it’s up to us to vote for change. The choices may not always be perfect, but the cost of inaction is simply too great.” Here’s a complete look: And...

How did we get to a point in America where people are PROUD to tell you that they’re “victims?” There are a lot of reasons things have gone so wrong on this front, but ironically, the biggest is that our nation has had so much success.

    According to Merriam-Webster, the first known use of the term “racism” was in 1933, but the practice of racism was well learned by that time. In the United States, slaves were brought to this land by Europeans who thought that the skin color and customs of the African captives made them less than equal to the “civilized” White settlers. That belief system permeated the treatment of Blacks in this country for hundreds of years, and in many ways, has yet to cease. The term is defined by Merriam-Webster as, “a belief that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a...

On Friday, the Daily Caller reported that child care centers in a Melbourne, Australia, suburb, are changing the lyrics of the centuries-old children's song "Baa Baa Black Sheep" because the word "black" has racist connotations. Additionally, one line is said to be sexist. "Staff at childcare centres in the south-eastern suburbs told the Herald Sun the lyric was being changed because of concerns over the racial connotations of 'black,' and to reflect a multicultural community,” the Australian Herald Sun reported.

    Lots of folks think Democrats oppose voter ID laws because they want to cheat and such laws interfere with their plans. That’s an attractive explanation, but it ignores the far more complex architecture of voter ID opposition. Here’s the real reasons Democrats oppose voter ID. Understanding these three reasons will help you decode the whole narrative behind voter ID. 1. Opposition to Voter ID Is a Base-Mobilization Tool. Simply, Democrats and civil rights groups spend millions of dollars opposing voter ID because they are trying to scare minority voters into thinking that Jim Crow is back. If Jim Crow is...

    The Supreme Court recently upheld a Texas voter ID law. This outrageous piece of legislation would require voters to present a photo ID prior to voting.

Yet here in the United States requiring a photo ID to vote is met with howls of racism from the Democrats. Interestingly here in Michigan to vote in the Democrats Presidential primary in 2012 voters had to present...

    Despite some pro-Michael Brown witnesses stating that at no point did Brown and officer Darren Wilson struggle in Wilson's police car, new forensics show that Brown's blood was in the car, on Wilson's gun, and on Wilson's person. According to a witness put forward by the NAACP, the witness “did not see Michael Brown struggling with the police officer inside his car at any point. They did witness the incident from the time it started from the time of the initial stop by the police car.” This is categorically false. The forensics irrefutably show Brown's blood splattered on the car,...

    Police in Minneapolis have discovered a new way to fight the wave of black violence and mayhem that is now an every day fact of life in their city: Blame the white victims for drinking too much. Why not: Nothing else has worked. First, Minneapolis police tried ignoring the problem. But dozens of victims, videos, witnesses, police reports and 911 calls made that impossible. Then they tried denying it: A spokesman for Minneapolis police department told me that race has nothing to do with anything involving crime and anyone who thinks differently is a bad person.

Of course not. The only surprise was that it was Jesse Jackson, whose exploits in racial demagoguery have of late been plagued by a relative lugubriousness in comparison to more ebullient contenders like Al Sharpton and Louis Farrakhan, who commandeered the train by insinuating himself among Duncan’s family members to accuse Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital of bigotry...

The first resolution, which passed unanimously last week, officially condemned “the racist, offensive name of the Washington, D.C. football franchise.” One councilmember said the name is an affront to “a...

The original figure turned out to be the number of previously registered voters who had re-registered to change their address or other personal information, Rita Days, St. Louis County’s director of elections, said.

Would a ban on travel from countries struggling to contain Ebola actually work? Maybe, maybe not. But that doesn’t matter, apparently. The real problem with the travel ban is that it’s obviously racist:(VIDEO-AT-LINK)MSNBC’s Toure Neblett called the idea of a travel ban “immoral.” If you’re unfamiliar w/ Neblett, you’re not alone. His programming appears on MSNBC, which not very many people watch. But since Neblett has dabbled in 9/11 Trutherism, he’s clearly the best person to ask about the...

And his partner even said he's from Liberia." Banfield is referring to reports that Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital...

  • The “Stop Rush” founder may want to explain some old racist, homophobic writing

    Angelo Carusone is probably one of the most famous people you’ve never heard of. A prolific warrior for disaffected minorities and the underserved liberal masses, Carusone is the founder of Stop Rush. (As in Limbaugh.) He was also a guiding force behind the parallel Stop Beck effort. The recipient of massive financial support from George Soros, Carusone went on to become the Executive Vice President of Media Matters, acting as a tireless champion of both racial minorities and LGBT citizens and fighting the regressive, hateful conservative movement.In light of all this, it may turn out to be rather curious...

    The Atlantic ^ | October 5, 2014 | Ta-Nehisi Coates, senior editor
    I started this narrative bibliography for "The Case for Reparations" back in June, but, regrettably, I didn't finish the final section before I left for the summer. Some time has passed but I think it is very important that, as much as possible, I complete this public acknowledgement of all the previous work that contributed to my own. As I've written, the process began with the understanding that racism was a "done thing" and not an irrepressible clash between people of different hues. Another way of putting this is to say white supremacy is not an invention of white people;...

    In a strange twist of fate, two age-old Civil Rights cases collide in Ferguson, MO -- half a century later. Is it just coincidence? Or could there be a deeper subliminal message lying tucked between the levels of America's consciousness? I decided to take a closer look. Forever connected, yet perched on the opposite ends of the spectrum, Plessy v. Ferguson (1896) and Brown v. Board of Education (1954) are two landmark Supreme Court cases in the fight for African-American civil rights. The former case legalized racial segregation under the "separate but equal" law, while the latter case outlawed the...

    video On MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry Show this weekend, the absent host's panel once again caused trouble, as they agreed that even proposing a ban on travel from Ebola outbreak nations is racist. Guests Laurie Garrett of the Council on Foreign Relations and Frankie Edozien, New York Times columnist and editor of The AFRican Magazine, first raised the specter of slavery before going straight for the racist label: GARRETT: "I was on Capitol Hill yesterday. I spoke to lot of the political leadership of the United States and I have to say I was stunned by how many felt the solution...

    In Dallas and other cities home to large populations of African immigrants, worries are abounding among many that their standing in the United States has been tainted by one Liberian man infected with Ebola being treated in Texas. "Some people around here see us as bringing the disease and that's just not right," said a Liberian who asked to be called Sekou, fearful that he and other West African immigrants are going to face bias in their U.S. home because of the sick man. Because many Americans have little knowledge of Africa's geography and the politics of countries on the...

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | 10/03/2014 | BY: Andrew Stiles
    Liberals tend to devote a significant portion of their daily lives to proving how not racist they are. One particularly expedient way of doing this is to declare that something a conservative has said or done is totally racist, and then to place oneself in opposition to the thing that was racist: “See, I’m not a racist!”As result, the List of Things That Are Racist has grown incomprehensibly long. The Free Beacon‘s devotion to public service obligates us to provide this list (not exhaustive by any means) of what liberals do and do not consider to be racist.Things That...

    TORONTO - The Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO) is offering their members a workshop on “white privilege.” That’s right. It doesn’t question whether white privilege exists. That’s a given. No debate about whether all white people have special status. They just do. And the union representing more than 76,000 teachers is teaching its membership how to deal with it. White privilege exists, therefore ETFO will have a workshop on it. Frankly, as a white person who’s struggled all my life to become privileged, I really wish I knew what white privilege is, because I’d like a heaping helping. If...

    Fans of the zany Tom and Jerry cartoons from the golden age of animation might be in for a shock, as the classic shorts now carry a politically-correct warning on Amazon's streaming video service. On Tuesday, BBC correspondent Sean Coughlan reported that on Amazon Prime, the "Tom and Jerry: The Complete Second Volume is accompanied by the caution: 'Tom and Jerry shorts may depict some ethnic and racial prejudices that were once commonplace in American society. Such depictions were wrong then and are wrong today.'" Coughlan spotlighted the criticism of University of Kent professor of sociology Frank Furendi, who blasted...
  • Author: Slavery Gives US 'Responsibility' to Not Ban Flights from Liberia

    Breitbart ^ | 10-3-14
    David Quammen, an author of multiple books on science and diseases, including “Ebola,” and "Spillover," argued against a ban on flights to Liberia by stating the US has a “responsibility” to the nation “given the fact that this is a country that was founded in the 1820s, 1830s because of American slavery” on Thursday’s “AC360” on CNN. Quammen first argued that such a ban would not be feasible because “it’s impossible to track them [people flying from Liberia],” and “you can't isolate neighborhoods, you can’t isolate nations. It doesn't work.” He then said, “people talk about ‘well, we should not...
