    A person may not have to "see color" to be racist. Some blind people, just like sighted people, make judgments about others based on their race, according to a new study. The findings come from interviews conducted in person and over the phone with 25 people who were either born blind or severely visually impaired, or who lost their sight as children or adults. A researcher asked the participants, most of whom lived in the northeast United States, about whether they thought about race and also how it affected their feelings about a person. The study found that blind people...

    On Friday night, a sheriff’s deputy in Texas was fatally shot at a gas station in would be described as “an unprovoked, execution-style killing of a police officer.” One day later, a 30-year-old man, identified as Shannon J. Miles, was charged with capital murder in the death of Darren Goforth, a 10-year veteran of the Harris County Sheriff’s Office. But what remained unclear Sunday was a motive for the shooting at a suburban Houston Chevron, which authorities say occurred when Goforth, 47, stopped to fill up his patrol car.

    When we talk about growing violence in America’s larger cities we frequently focus on New York and Baltimore. (And for good reason, to be honest.) But the nation’s capital has been experiencing its own problems along those lines lately. A rather chilling recounting of some of these “local stories” provides the backdrop for a recent op-ed column in the WaPo by Colbert I. King. I’ll confess that some of the stories of violence and mayhem King is talking about were completely unknown to me, leading the author to compare Washington to “the wild west.” One example is the case where...

    At a press conference outside the National Portrait Gallery on Thursday, Bishop E.W. Jackson said that Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger “was a white supremacist” and to honor her “is to be complicit in her evil and her racism.” The press conference brought together a group of black pastors and pro-life leaders who are demanding that the portrait gallery, which is a part of the federally funded Smithsonian Institution, remove a bust of Margaret Sanger. The bust is featured in the gallery’s “The Struggle for Justice” exhibit, which focuses on historical equal rights achievements in America. Depictions of King and...

    Innocuous phrases Alison Parker used every day to describe her job may have led to her death, simply because Vester Lee Flanagan thought they were racist. The 24-year-old TV reporter who was shot and killed by the disgruntled ex-employee on Wednesday somehow angered him by using terms like 'swinging' by an address or going out into the 'field' while she was an intern at WDBJ. It sheds further light on the murderer's erratic behavior, details of which have emerged since he callously gunned down Parker and cameraman Adam Ward live on breakfast TV. Flanagan, 41, clashed repeatedly with photojournalists, belittling...

"If you try to do it, the bad guys would have them," Trump told CNN's "New Day" host Chris Cuomo, saying that instead, the focus should be on solving the mental health issues. Former reporter Bryce Williams, whose legal name is Vester Flanagan, killed himself Wednesday afternoon after shooting to death TV reporter Alison Parker and her cameraman, Adam Ward,...

Some schools and family centers in Scotland, England, and Australia have eliminated the word “black” as racist, and now refer to “rainbow sheep,” “happy sheep,” or “green sheep,” though these new adjectives make no sense at all.

    It takes a lot for New Yorkers to get mad at any establishment that creates their cities most beloved dish: Pizza. But NYC residents are furious with a local pizza joint for promoting a racist pie. How on Earth can pizza be racist? Pizza by Certé recently started advertising a picnic themed pizza with ingredients like fried chicken, watermelon and sunflower seeds. And here is what they called it the pic-a-nika. The pic-a-nika. C'mon! Advocacy group Millions March NYC protested the establishment and tried to get it shut down.

    <p>Why do polls show that racial relations have gotten much worse under Barack Obama, who won the White House with over 95% of the black — and 45% of the white — vote?</p> <p>A recent New York Times/CBS News poll just revealed that about 60% of Americans feel race relations are not good. Some 40% think that they will become even worse. Yet when Obama was elected, 66% of those polled felt race relations were generally OK. All racial groups, according to recent polling, believe that Obama’s handling of racial relations has made things worse since 2009. Another recent Pew poll confirms these tensions, and suggests whites are now about as pessimistic as blacks.</p>

    There's a word for why we're all probably at least a little bit racist, even if we really don't want to be: Implicit bias. It's a term that describes what's happening when, despite our best intentions and without our awareness, racial stereotypes and assumptions creep into our minds and affect our actions. It seeps into just about every aspect of life, including areas like criminal justice that can have deadly consequences. Thirty years of neurology and cognitive psychology studies show that it influences the way we see and treat others, even when we're absolutely determined to be, and believe we...

    Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson on Sunday criticized the Black Lives Matter movement, saying they are politicizing issues and using disruptive methods while overlooking some critical issues like homicide by young black males.

    Was there anyone with two working brain cells to rub together who was really surprised by this story? A police detective in Alabama pulls over a motorist who is driving in an erratic fashion, calls for backup and suddenly sees the driver exiting the vehicle and coming toward him in an aggressive fashion. Under normal circumstances, the detective should have used whichever level of force (or threat thereof) was required to get the driver back in the vehicle until his backup arrived. But instead, this happens. The two end up in a parking lot when the detective calls for...

    Suppose a client walked into my office and told me that police officers in his country had choked a man to death over a petty crime. Suppose he said police fatally shot another man in the back as he ran away. That they arrested a woman during a traffic stop and placed her in jail, where she died three days later. That a 12-year-old boy in his country was shot and killed by the police as he played in the park. Suppose he told me that all of those victims were from the same ethnic community — a community whose...

    Elections are supposed to be color-blind, but not under Obama Black Americans today receive preferential treatment in the realm of elections and voting rights because the Left needs them to acquire and keep political power. To left-wingers it’s 1815, not 2015. Blacks today are unquestionably full citizens unhindered by officially sanctioned discrimination, but to the Left there are still crosses burning in front of black families’ houses while residents cower in terror inside.
