  • Jesse Jackson Accidentally Says "Al Capone would be Jealous" of his Business Model

    The Social Memo ^ | 7/3/15 | Aurelius
    Jesse Jackson held an extremely disastrous interview on Reddit, which hosts events in which its users ask celebrities questions. These are called "AMAs," or "Ask Me Anything." Jackson no doubts regrets the entire AMA, which was met with derision from Reddit's users. However, he might regret the answer to one of the questions the most. At one point in the AMA, Jackson was asked (emphasis mine): Mr. Jackson, You are an immoral, hate-filled race baiter that has figured out how to manipulate the political system for your own gain. You've personally set back race relations year after year and continue...

    And yeah, we used the word, because we're going to deal with instead of running from it I got a phone call yesterday morning from my pastor, wanting my help with a matter that had come up. That in itself is not unusual, but the nature of the matter was. In recent weeks we’d had a series of break-in attempts at the church, and while they hadn’t succeeded in getting inside the building, they had stolen the very large grill we keep outside for church barbecues and other special events. Well that can be replaced, although not cheaply. But whoever...

    Despite Blacks coming together to speak up for Black Lives many are ignoring the Black unborn child in the womb targeted by abortion. In addition, at least one abortion clinic has publicly pledged to donate a portion of each abortion they perform to a new Black Movement in Cleveland. From Friday July 24 to Sunday July 26th, 2015, hundreds of Black activists from around the country convene in Cleveland, Ohio for the inaugural Movement for Black Lives. From the event website: Now, after months of intense action, our people need space to begin the creation of a collective mission that...

    Geneticists at the University of Vermont have revealed links between eye color and alcohol dependency, suggesting it occurs more frequently among people with blue eyes and less frequently among those with dark brown eyes. The study, which offers another piece of evidence that alcohol dependency has a genetic component, involved a sample of 1,263 individual genetic profiles. They were pulled from a database that only contains genetic profiles of people diagnosed with at least one psychiatric illness, which includes an addiction to, or dependence on, drugs or alcohol. For this study, the geneticists filtered the database for patients with alcohol...

    The statue of Confederate General P.G.T. Beauregard has been spray-painted with the words 'Black Lives Matter' on both sides of its base. The statue stands at the main entrance to City Park in the circle where North Carrollton and Esplanade avenues intersect, directly in front of the New Orleans Museum of Art. Beauregard was considered the first prominent general of the Confederate States Army during the American Civil War. According to New Orleans Historical, it took twenty years to raise the $22,000 needed for the monument, which was completed in 1915....

    Bobby Jindal of Louisiana is, we are informed by all the best people, insufficiently ethnic. Governor Jindal, born in Baton Rouge, is Punjabi in the sense that your average Philadelphian with a surname ending in a vowel is Italian: ancestrally, trivially. Governor Jindal’s speech, culture, mannerisms, politics, religion, habits, and affect are as far removed from Chandigarh, the north Indian city where his parents met, as they are from Bogota or Stuttgart. The governor insistently rejects the tossed salad model in favor of the melting pot: an American is an American is an American, in his view. For his political...

Yes, really (listen to the audio here): "You know, I understand the effort to remove the Confederate flag from state capitols in the South and anywhere else in this country.

    ~~Well-intended forgiveness has been seized on by the media and those in power as an excuse to ignore white supremacy~~ Unfortunately, forgiveness, that element of moral sanctity which facilitates assuaging of grief, has morphed into a barrier obstructing the path to justice and accountability in the United States — a place weakened by the ubiquitousness and insidiousness of racism. Although it’s tough to direct a critical lens at the concept of forgiveness when the situation involves grieving family members tearfully addressing an expressionless, depraved killer who isn’t even asking for it, for posterity’s sake this must be done. What happened...

    Why do normal people deny that institutional racism still exists in America? President Obama and other liberals are not wrong when they point out this reality. They are simply disingenuous about who’s behind it. Let’s face it. The legacy of the Democratic Party is buried in the Confederate South. Its DNA oozes slavery, bigotry, and discrimination. The nation’s first half-black president even said as much in a recent interview with comedian Marc Maron. Liberal public schools have done a great job deemphasizing the Democratic Party’s mortifying history of racism. The party’s platforms supported slavery from 1840-1860. The Jim Crow...

    One hundred fifty years too late, the Confederacy may finally be coming to an end. Finishing it off, however, will require more than getting rid of an offensive flag. Not that the astounding progress this week toward consigning the Confederate battle flag to the ignominy it deserves is a small thing. Flags are among the most important symbols because they signify allegiance — in this case, to a treasonous rebellion that sought the unimpeded right to buy and sell human beings and brutally compel their unpaid labor. It should not have taken the murder of nine African-American worshipers at Emanuel...

Journalists seem to support the “one drop rule” or “part black all black”.

The Civil War saw Union soldiers who were Republicans fighting and giving their lives to free the slaves held by Southern Democrats. During the War the Democrat Party in the North did everything it could to undermine the Union cause and committed countless acts of treason in order to keep Black people in chains.

The GOP consensus of 20 years ago was that the display of the Confederate battle flag was up to the ones displaying it. Now they are falling over each other to denounce its public display. None of...

    In so many ways, the story of Dylann Roof, the shooting suspect who allegedly killed nine people in an historic South Carolina black church, is a parallel to the story of America itself. Who, at this point, can feign surprise at this latest massacre when it sits at the nexus of so much that is familiar and perfectly in line with the U.S. that we know? We are a country where mass shootings are weekly news, where gun violence is a fact of daily life, where there is a legacy of terror against black people and communities, where white racists...

    When horrible things happen, such as the tragic mass murder that occurred at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina, we try to understand because it is through understanding that we solve problems. Speaking about the incident, Hillary Clinton said: "It is tempting to dismiss a tragedy like this as an isolated incident -- to believe that in today's America, bigotry is largely behind us, that institutionalized racism no longer exists. But despite our best efforts and our highest hopes, America's long struggle with race is far from finished." Some of the Republican candidates for president are taking heat because...

    The autopsy conducted on Freddie Gray helps the case of the six Baltimore police officers charged in the 25-year-old’s death, a law professor tells The Daily Caller. John Banzhaf, a law professor at George Washington University, also says that the autopsy, a review of which was published Tuesday by The Baltimore Sun, indicates that Baltimore city state’s attorney Marilyn Mosby “downplayed” the medical examiner’s findings when she publicly announced charges against the officers on May 1. “I think this autopsy report is very, very helpful to the defense in many ways,” Banzhaf told The Daily Caller in a phone interview....
  • The Democratic Party Should Change its Name (vanity)

    The Democratic Party should change its name because of its history as the source of the KKK, Jim Crow laws and opposition to racial integration. The name is a symbol of the hate and racial prejudices of its past that our country should no longer give legitimacy.

  • Did You Know the First Legal Slave Owner in America Was a Black Man?

    Here’s something you won’t read about in the US history books. The first legal slave owner in America was black and he owned white slaves. Anthony Johnson (BC 1600 – 1670) was an Angolan who achieved freedom in the early 17th century Colony of Virginia. Johnson was captured in his native Angola by an enemy tribe and sold to Arab (Muslim) slave traders. He was eventually sold as an indentured servant to a merchant working for the Virginia Company. Sometime after 1635, Antonio and Mary gained their freedom from indenture. Antonio changed his name to Anthony Johnson. In 1651 Anthony...
  • Rand Paul Backs Confederate Flag Removal, Calls It Symbol of Racism and Murder

    Sen. Rand Paul said he agrees with South Carolina Gov. (and fellow Republican) Nikki Haley that the Confederate flag should be removed from its previous place of honor on the grounds of the State House. In a radio interview this morning, Paul referred to the flag as “inescapably a symbol of human bondage and slavery,” as well as a reminder of Dylan Roof’s horrific murders: “I think the flag is inescapably a symbol of human bondage and slavery, and particularly when people use it, you know, obviously for murder and to justify hated so vicious that you would kill somebody,...

      The pipe of the racism piper is playing and the lemmings hear the call. One after another politicians run to the front of the political correctness cliff and jump off blathering about how the Confederate flag has to come down and even how the next symbol of oppression must also find the dustbin of history: Senate Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has joined calls to remove a statue of Kentucky-native Jefferson Davis from the state capitol building. The statue of Jefferson Davis has been in the rotunda of the Kentucky Capitol building since 1936, but it has come under...

    Dylann Storm Roof’s name will deservedly go down in infamy as one of America’s most depraved and retrograde serial killers. He should also go down in history as one of the least competent interpreters of that history. By this point, nearly everyone knows that Roof’s self-described moment of racial “awakening,” so to speak, was the Trayvon Martin case, in which the 17-year-old teen Trayvon Martin was shot in self-defense by George Zimmerman. Roof, in his nauseating manifesto, says he first came to be a racist when he read about this case on Wikipedia, and, to paraphrase him, didn’t see what...
