  • Video: Here’s What Minneapolis Looks Like Morning After Protests, Riots And Looting

    Violent protests erupted for a second night in Minneapolis on Wednesday over the police killing of George Floyd, a black man who was seen on video pleading for medical assistance on the ground as an officer placed a knee upon his neck while detaining him. But the intention of some “protesters” or should I say, looters had nothing to do with police brutality! There was a video of one man down on the ground being treated by police outside of a business last night. The man was reportedly shot after trying to loot a pawn shop. Though few details have...
  • Looters Trash Minneapolis After George Floyd’s Needless Death, But They Won’t Bring Justice

    By all accounts, the death of George Floyd looks like murder by a police officer. Attempting to burn down one of the Midwest’s most beloved cities won’t ensure justice. In downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota — Rep. Ilhan Omar’s district, to be specific — rioters descended upon the police station and even nearby businesses Wednesday evening, breaking windows, setting fires, and looting. The mob gathered in response to the horrifying death of George Floyd. This video shows multiple officers pinning unarmed Floyd to the ground, one with his knee on Floyd’s neck, cutting off his airway. For nearly five excruciating minutes, Floyd...

    A video posted on social media this week shows a police officer keeping his knee planted on the neck of a black man who pleaded that he couldn’t breathe and subsequently died shortly afterward. It happened Monday night, when cops were responding to a “forgery in progress.” Police arrived and saw the suspect sitting in a car. According to the Department, the man resisted arrest so he was placed in handcuffs, adding “he appeared to be suffering medical distress.” The Police Dept. added, “At no time were weapons of any type used by anyone involved in this incident.” What the...

  • Why Fomenting Identity Politics Matters More To Democrats Than Asian Americans

    Than Asian Americans Artificially diversifying universities through quotas does not help to close the very real racial achievement gap in education. CaliforniaÂ’s legislature is trying, yet again, to bring back racial preferences in college admissions. Never mind that its residents overwhelmingly approved a ban against such discrimination in a referendum. If lawmakers succeed, they will penalize Chinese Americans, a growing force in the state. So why such dogged determination that could backfire politically?Several forces are at work here. One is that without such inducements as the racial preferences of affirmative action, the whole structure of identity politics eventually collapses. Those...

    The New York Times editorial board published a column this weekend that asked readers to consider, "Why Does the U.S. Military Celebrate White Supremacy?" At the crux of their argument, the board, self-described as "a group of opinion journalists whose views are informed by expertise, research, debate and certain longstanding values," says that military bases in the southern states bearing the names of Confederate leaders should be renamed. "It is time to rename bases for American heroes — not racist traitors," the article promises readers as its thesis. To support the argument, the writers compare the history of the Confederacy...
  • Another Racist Video From Joe Biden Resurface: “You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent”

    CNN waited 12 hours to cover Joe Biden’s “you ain’t black” comment — while ABC, CBS, and NBC averaged only one minute of discussion about his shocking remarks. During an appearance on the Breakfast Club radio show on Friday, the presumptive Democrat nominee told the black host, Charlamagne Tha God, that if you choose Trump over him, “you ain’t black.” The comment rapidly went viral and drew condemnation from both sides of the aisle. But mainstream media cover-up and Biden’s racist comments are not new. In 2006 Biden said: “You can’t go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin Donuts unless...

    In an interview on the "Breakfast Club" Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden told host Charlamagne Tha God that "if you have a problem figuring out whether you're for me or Trump, then you ain't black." Biden's statement was in response to Charlemagne's attempt to go over the originally allotted 20 minutes set aside for the interview by pleading "we've got more questions." While Biden's assertion that skin color determines political ideology reeks of racism, Fox News commentator, and former spokesperson for the State Department under President Barack Obama, Marie Harf insisted "it definitely was not racist. We all say things...

I've never, never, ever taken the African American community for granted." . . . @TimMurtaugh on Biden apology: “Joe Biden made the mistake today of saying what he really thinks and it showed his arrogance and sense of entitlement. No wonder his handlers rarely let him go out without a script.”

    GQ magazine was severely mocked for publishing an opinion piece that incorrectly said former Alabama segregationist governor George Wallace was a Republican. The op-ed, penned by Laura Bassett, described Wallace, a former presidential candidate, as a Republican who backed abortion so there would be fewer children for the government to support. Just one catch: Wallace was a Democrat.

    Joe Biden committed yet another bizarre outburst of virulent racism on Friday morning when he told black America that if they don’t vote for him in November “then you ain’t black.” As is usually the case, the 77-year-old looked confused and tired during his virtual interview with Charlamagne tha God, co-host of the Breakfast Club, a popular syndicated radio show. The entire interview was a disaster. Biden slurred his words, lost his train of thought, and looked frail and more than a little out of it. So it would have been an embarrassment even without the racist outburst.

    Joe Biden really stepped in it this morning during his interview with ‘The Breakfast Club’ where the presumed Democratic presidential nominee said if there is any black person who doesn’t know if they will vote for Trump or Biden they ‘ain’t black.’ . . . WTF…because I don't support your failed policies. Things like the 94 crime bill, Obamacare and others "I ain't black" based on @JoeBiden's words. That is basically saying the Dem party owns me because of skin color. I wonder if Rep. Wexton feels the same way. #VA10 — Jeffery A Dove Jr.

    Officials in an Ohio county declared that racism is a public health crisis that has been highlighted by the coronavirus pandemic. Franklin County Commissioners declared that “racism is a public health crisis affecting our entire country” in a resolution passed Tuesday. The resolution declares that the “disparity is highlighted” by county coronavirus data showing black residents are hospitalized at twice the rate of other demographic groups. “Racism has been a pandemic long before the current coronavirus pandemic,” Commissioner Kevin L. Boyce said in a statement released . “Our declaration today is important, but it’s not saying anything that hasn’t been...

    “Dear Mitch McConnell,” wrote Miami Herald columnist Leonard Pitts, Jr., last week. “Why don’t you just go ahead and call Barack Obama the n-word? You know you want to.”What led to this over-the-top racial attack from Pitts? Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had the audacity to disagree with an approach taken by former President Barack Obama, who leaked audio of himself critiquing the Trump administration after new revelations about his involvement spying on the incoming Trump administration. McConnell thought it an unwise deviation from norms.The political media used to agree about the importance of this norm. In 2007, former...

    EXCLUSIVE: ABC News will present three days of special coverage to how the coronavirus has reflected, exposed or exacerbated racial, ethnic and socioeconomic divides. Starting on Wednesday, the reports, titled Pandemic — A Nation Divided, will appear across all of the network’s platforms. The series is rooted in statistics showing a disproportionate impact of the virus on African Americans and Latinos and other communities. For instance, in New York City, African Americans are twice as likely to die of the virus, according to the network. In Washington, D.C., Latinos have been seven times more likely to be infected than white...

    Stacey Abrams has another distinction to add to her resume — she is among the most preposterous potential vice presidential candidates ever. Her attempt to leverage a failed Georgia gubernatorial bid into a spot on the Democratic ticket is so brazenly absurd that it’s hard to think of precedents. But the 46-year-old African American activist isn’t one to be constrained by standard political practice — or reality. She refused to concede her narrow but clear 2018 gubernatorial loss, instead alleging she’d been undone by a massive voter suppression scheme. A recent 2014 video that surfaced on the internet reveals the...

    It’s all over the news, two white guys shot a black man in Georgia while he was jogging because they thought he was a burglar. The racial aspect touched a nerve, which was compounded because Gregory McMichael and his son Travis McMichael took the law into their own hands. It looked like the Trayvon Martin fatal shooting all over again. And things got worse when more details started coming out. So is this a modern day racist lynching, as some like Al Sharpton are claiming, or is it merely an unfortunate situation? Now it’s too early to pass judgment, since...
