  • Can Blacks Be Racist?

    What if it's not injustice that has led so many blacks across America to feel disenfranchised? What if it's judgment? Last week on two separate occasions guests on Sean Hannity's radio program reiterated Jesse Jackson's decades old mantra that "blacks can't be racist because we have no institutional power." This may be a clandestine way to excuse blacks for destroying cities like Ferguson, MO in the name of justice for Michael Brown, but it's hardly worth addressing seriously. Unknown to many is the fact that blacks hold more government jobs by percentage than any other ethnicity. In an article entitled...

While debating the controversial “Religious Freedom Bill” recently signed into law by Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, Rep.

    The already contentious debate over Indiana’s proposed “religious freedom” bill took a surreal twist Monday afternoon when — in the midst of discussion on the bill — a Democratic lawmaker said that a Republican lawmaker’s child was “scared” of her because she is black. The comment by Rep. Vanessa Summers drew audible gasps, in no small part because the child — the son of Rep. Jud McMillin — is 18 months old. “I told Jud McMillin I love his son, but he’s scared of me because of my color,” Summers told McMillin, who is white, during debate over the Religious...

    After investigating a racist chant sung by Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity brothers on their way to an SAE Founders Day event, University of Oklahoma officials have concluded that members of the fraternity learned the words at a leadership event hosted by SAE’s national headquarters four years earlier. The university found that the chant migrated to Oklahoma and had become “part of the institutionalized culture of the chapter” and its pledging process, implying that it was not a song belonging to a small number of people and instead was part of the fraternity’s recent traditions.

    Arabs Actually Benefit from Reverse Racism in Israel -- Rather Than Suffering from Perverse Racism The ironies have never been greater, as will be the representation of the Arabs in the new Israeli parliament now in formation. Prime Minister Netanyahu has been accused of racism upon trying to get out his base to vote by pointing out that the press was observing that Arabs were coming out in droves on Election Day. But what does this tell us? Even the most anti-Semitic Israel basher and Netanyahu basher has to concede that the fact that Arabs were coming out in droves...

    Ron Fournier is a columnist for National Journal and a cable news mainstay who served as the Associated Press' Washington bureau chief for years. In his new opinion-based role, he's worked to carve out a niche as a 'pox on both houses' purveyor of common sense, a detector of BS, a practitioner of intellectual honesty, and Chief of the Civility Police.  In that last capacity, Fournier expended much indignant energy denouncing Rudy Giuliani's acerbic commentary about President Obama's patriotism -- wrongly asserting that Obama would never say such nasty things about his political opponents.  Regardless of that particular blind spot, Fournier would likely tell you that he feels...

    Last month, the Department of Justice announced that it would not prosecute George Zimmerman for shooting and killing Trayvon Martin. Due to the skewering of Zimmerman by much of the media following the DOJ’s decision, he declined all interviews and press. However, Zimmerman did open up to his divorce lawyer on March 8th. And what he had to say included some choice words for President Obama. The Orlando Sentinel has more on what Zimmerman had to say: “The president should never have allowed the DOJ investigation and is guilty of ramping up racial tension when he said, “If I had...

    On the March 20 episode of Real Time With Bill Maher, NBC Sportscaster Bob Costas laughed off criticism of his many pro-gun control comments and added to them by asking if people really believe the Founding Fathers wanted “private citizens… to purchase cop-killer, armor-piercing bullets” and an “AK-47″? Maher opened the door for Costas to do so by citing topics Costas has spoken on –“gay, guns, head injuries”– and suggesting Costas “has to” talk about these things because not other “sportscaster” or “broadcaster” is doing it. The focus then turned to Costas’ April 2014 suggestion that athletes can’t be trusted...

    The proper response to liberals spewing AntiCruz hate and rhetoric is to remind them that they are just: "RACISTS that hate the idea of a Hispanic President". Who want Hispanics trimming their hedges, or cutting their grass, and voting how they are told to, rather than running for President. Remind them that all of their opposition to Cruz and his ideas are based in their own Racist Privilege. If they ask how such a thing can be, remind them of the MANY examples we have been given of this over the last seven years by the likes of: OPRAH WINFREY:...

    Racists across Twitter and Tumblr have created "fightawhite day," in which people are supposed to go up to white people and literally start a fight. Those following "fightawhite day" are also claiming that it's not just one day, but is everyday and are looking to attack white people. The day apparently started with "Canadad," a Tumbler user who describes himself as a "21 years old canadian cis male student." His post eventually garnered over 3,000 "notes" on Tumblr and has been plastered on hundreds of blogs and Twitter feeds since it was proposed:

    Netanyahu’s conservative Likud Party got its best numbers not in Jerusalem, where it only won a quarter of the vote, or Sderot, the city under siege where it still got less than half, or Maaleh Adumim, a city of some 40,000 known as a “settlement” because it is located in ’67 Israel where it also took less than half. Its best numbers appear to have come from Arab-al-Naim, a Bedouin settlement, where it scored three-quarters of the vote.The residents were uninterested in any of the accusations of racism being aimed at Netanyahu by the media.

And what was the motivation for those who spewed the venom in the direction of Franklin Graham—joint head of both the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association as well as Samaritan’s Purse? Put simply Franklin Graham offered three concrete reminders for how we as a nation could remedy some—if not many—instances in which...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK) Congratulations, Internet haters! Well done, keepers of the one-true-way-to-talk-about-race! If we don't tamp down the backlash against Starbucks "Race Together" campaign, I fear that no major corporation will even try to talk about race again -- for maybe 10 or 20 years. Is that really what we want? Look, I get it. Asking baristas to hold conversations about race is a lot to demand of already hard-working employees. Not to mention, the topic should probably be called "systematic racism," not just "race." And there are legitimate questions about what Starbucks could realistically hope to accomplish, here.

These stickers had been posted around stores in Austin: For days no one knew who had posted them and why could only be speculated. The answer has been solved today: the stickers were posted by Austin lawyer Adam Reposa who did it to point out the "gentrification" of Austin and the displacement of minorities. “They’re getting pushed out, and pretty quick.

In the Post op-ed published Monday, Mr. Capehart argued that 18-year-old Michael Brown did not have his hands in the air when he was fatally shot by police, writing that former Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson was justified in the killing. During his monologue Thursday night, Mr. Capehart mentioned how actress Ashley Judd announced this week that she is pressing charges against...

In fact, the veteran lawmaker referred to the judicial nominee as “especially dangerous” for, among other things, being “Latino.” Additionally, Durbin has voted against several Republican presidential nominees who also happened to be ethnic minorities—Janice Rogers Brown, an African-American on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, the first African-American female Secretary of...

You know the standards of the media have hit rock bottom when a liberal commentator makes news for telling the truth.

The online test, which Forest Management Director Bryan Rice urged other agency directors to use as well, specifically warns of problems when it is taken “outside of the safeguards of a research institution.” Users also are told to be careful about how far to go in interpreting the results.

Why engage in accusation by innuendo? By all means, name them, shame them – make them famous. In the meantime, while Powell composes his list, we compile some questions to some possible left-leaning “dark veins of intolerance”: What color was Rep. Maxine Waters’, D-Calif., “vein”...

    Many of us who did not vote for Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential election found some solace in the notion that Obama’s presidency, if nothing else, would ease racial tensions. The poll numbers suggested the same. In the month of Obama’s inauguration, 79 percent of whites and 63 percent of blacks held a favorable view of race relations in America, something of a high water mark in recent history. Those paying close attention, however, saw reason to worry. There were forces on the left, the White House included, that were prepared to use Obama’s presidency to drive the races...

U.S. workers for the coffee chain that is best known for its Frappuccinos have been told to write "Race Together" on cups.

Most recently in Ferguson, where even Bill O’Reilly bought into it. Rand Paul has been preaching the gospel of racial victimization to anyone who will listen. He even went to Ferguson to let them...

    Santa Rosa City Schools officials are investigating what some students at Maria Carrillo High School claim was a “racist” pep rally skit that depicts Latino immigrants being rounded up by immigration officials. According to students who attended the school rally last Friday and a brief video on YouTube, the skit shows students — some of them Latino — dancing to regional Mexican music, or banda norteńa. Suddenly the dancers are interrupted by a siren and immigration enforcement officers. They are forced to show their green cards. One of the students, presumably an undocumented immigrant, tries to run away and is...

    The most recent news from Ferguson concerns what Eric Holder has rightly called the “ambush shooting” of two police officers outside the city’s police department. This incident occurred in the wake of two detailed reports released by the Department of Justice. The first report deals in depth with the shooting of Michael Brown by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. The report recommended that the case against him be closed. The second DOJ report contained a scathing indictment of the sad state of affairs within the entire criminal justice system of Ferguson. The combined effect of these two reports is likely...

    Turn on the news and you expect to see people of different races and politics denouncing each other. That's why what happened last week on "The Kelly File," Megyn Kelly's Fox News program, was so remarkable. Following the expulsion of Parker Rice and Levi Pettit, two Sigma Alpha Epsilon members at the University of Oklahoma, upon the video release of a racist sing-a-long they led, Isaac Hill, the president of the university's Black Student Association, told Kelly the students should be forgiven. Kelly, who is normally in complete control, was stunned and nearly speechless. It was not what she...

    Full headline: Huh? Mother Jones Explains Why Eating 3 Square Meals A Day is Actually Racist.According to an essay by Mother Jones Senior Editor Kiera Butler, eating three meals a day is “anti-science, racist, and might actually be making you sick.” Butler’s astounding proclamation that three square meals is “racist” is supported by her interview with Historian Abigail Carroll, who wrote the book Three Squares: The Invention of the American Meal: When European settlers got to America, they also imported their meal habits: a light meal—maybe cold mush and radishes—in the morning, a heavier, cooked one midday, and a third...

    A conservative radio show host used the story of Black teenage girls viciously assaulting another girl at a Brooklyn McDonald’s as an opportunity to direct a stunningly inaccurate and racist diatribe against the entire Black race. During a recent segment on his show, Texas-based host Michael Berry attempted to draw a comparison between the behavior of Black people and white people while attacking the girls involved in the McDonald’s beating. “We have people living in our country who are savages. Absolutely, positively savages, to engage in this kind of behavior,” Berry said, making it clear he’s talking about Black people....

    White students were discriminated against at Ryerson University because, ironically, they had never been discriminated against. Two students tried to attend Ryerson’s Racialized Students’ Collective on March 11. However, when Trevor Hewitt and Julia Knope tried to enter, they were told they were “not victims of racialization,” and were thus barred from entering. The judgement was apparently made based solely on the color of Hewitt’s and Knope’s skin. “It felt really bad… kind of embarrassing,” Knope told the campus paper. “If their goal in these meetings was to end racialization then it needs to be something everybody is involved in....

    Professor of multicutural education at Westfield State University Robin DiAngelo has a message for white people living in the United States: it doesn't matter what hardships you've had to face, you still have white privilege. In an interview published today, Professor DiAngelo talked about "white fragility," or how white people dismiss racial issues like "white privilege." According to the interviewer, Sam Adler-Bell, a story about a Jewish person's struggle against Nazi tyranny "followed a familiar script" for Dr. DiAngelo: a white person is offended when someone says they still are privileged, even though they've faced hardships in their lives. "It’s...

    There is no defense for the shooting of two police officers in Ferguson, Missouri ("2 Ferguson police officers shot in protest outside station," March 13 news story). It was a cowardly act and the perpetrators should be punished to the full extent of the law. However, even more problematic to me is that the event wasn’t shocking. With our culture of gun violence and regular shootings of young black males, only someone who has no understanding of America could be genuinely shocked. Blacks have come far — we can celebrate a black president and attorney general — but racism is...
