  • Are Race Riots News? (Thomas Sowell)

    When I first saw a book with the title, "White Girl Bleed A Lot" by Colin Flaherty, I instantly knew what it was about, even though I had not seen the book reviewed anywhere, and knew nothing about the author. That is because I had encountered that phrase before, while doing research for the four new chapters on intellectuals and race that I added to the revised edition of my own book, "Intellectuals and Society," published this year. That phrase was spoken by a member of a mob of young blacks who attacked whites at random at a Fourth of...

    An open letter to African America: In the late ’90s, the Internet belched forth a rumor that the Voting Rights Act was soon to expire and that black folks would lose the vote as a result. Though stupid and untrue, the rumor spread like a dust cloud till it was inescapable. Flash forward to 2012. Now the threat is real. There is a sustained effort to suppress the black vote as we approach this pivotal election. And what is our response? Silence. Here is what is going on in that silence. In Washington, D.C., conservative Republicans are seeking to gut...

    I posted the above article by Colin Flaherty a couple of hours ago and it was pulled by the Moderator as being "too much." The article at WND begins with a video of a young black man named Mike Hagler who is basically asking (based on his observations) why blacks have to always be so violent at public events. I posted one comment: ["Yes, I guess I'm a racist. You see I believe the human race is far superior to any other. If I'm not mistaken, "race" originated with the secular humanists pushing evolution, eugenics and other such nonsense. "Race"...

    “The FBI found no racial bias behind George Zimmerman’s shooting of Miami Gardens teen Trayvon Martin, according to dozens of documents related to the case released Thursday.” Wait, what? A white Hispanic shoots and kills an unarmed black male and race wasn’t the underlying cause? Imagine the frenzy in the NBC News editing booth as they wrestle with how to slice and dice that cognitively dissonant piece of info. But FBI investigators, after talking to just about everyone Zimmerman has known since birth, haven’t been able to come up with so much as an errant N-word, let alone a burning...

    Shocking, yes. Surprising? no. Abd (Arabic: عبد‎) is an Arabic word meaning slave or black (interchangeable) -- one who is totally subordinated; a slave or a servant. Are black leaders in America who urge their constituents to convert to Islam telling them that blacks are referred to as their abid (slave) and abeed (slaves) in Islam? Are the imams who are converting black convicts by the thousands in the prisons revealing this to their new followers? Louis Farrakhan has a lot of 'splainin to do.

    Los Angeles Times ^ | July 12, 2012, 11:23 a.m. | E. Scott Reckard
    No 1. home lender Wells Fargo & Co. has agreed to pay at least $175 million to settle federal allegations that it systematically overcharged minorities during the frenzied housing boom, including steering African Americans and Latinos into more expensive subprime mortgages. The agreement was announced Thursday by the Justice Department, which described it as the second-largest fair-lending settlement in the department’s history. (In the largest, reached last December, Bank of America Corp. agreed to pay $335 million to settle claims against Countrywide Financial Corp., the aggressive Calabasas lender it acquired in 2008.) Asst. Atty. Gen. Thomas E. Perez said “a...

    A Latina aide to the lieutenant governor of Florida has been caught up in a sex scandal involving her boss. A former employee of Florida Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll claims the Sunshine State’s second in command had a tryst with top aide Beatriz Ramos, and even caught them in a “compromising position” inside Carroll’s office. The lieutenant governor denies the allegations, which were included in a court filing made late last week by the attorney representing former top aide Carletha Cole. Cole was arrested last October on charges that she gave an illegally taped conversation with another Carroll aide to...

    Mediaite ^ | July 10, 2012 | Andrew Kirell
    On Tuesday’s edition of Fox News’ The Five, the panel debated whether Americans have become too dependent on government assistance today — with liberal co-host Bob Beckel being the lone dissenter on the notion. When the rest of the hosts played a clip from Rep. Allen West (R-FL) reinforcing their point, calling Social Security “modern 21st-century slavery,” Beckel went on a tirade, telling the congressman to “shut up” while calling him a “blowhard.” Republican nominee Mitt Romney needs to make clear the difference between himself and President Barack Obama, emphasizing the question: “Do you see the average American as an...

My entire family sat around the dinner table, doing what the Skolniks love to politics. Of course we ate turkey. cranberry sauce. mashed potatoes. the usual. a little tofurkey for the vegetarians in the crew. The tone was light. Soft jabs. No heavy punching, since we all come from the same political cloth. But when the conversation turned to race, the tone got a little bit...
  • America's Racial Obsession

    When Barack Obama was elected to office in 2008, there was talk of a post-racial America. It seemed as though racism was on an exit route out the back pipe of American society. As the years passed, it became more obvious that this was all just a fantasy. Those who criticized the policies of President Obama were labeled racists within the first year of his presidency. Still, today, his opponents are often branded as bigots. Morgan Freeman, during an interview with Piers Morgan, called the Tea Party racist for making Obama's defeat a part of its agenda. During the 2004...

    The American Spectator ^ | July 9, 2012 | Ross Kaminsky
    Liberals really are a single-minded lot: In their view, the only possible explanation for a person hoping that Barack Obama loses his next election is racism. All things political are analyzed through a filter of skin color, putting today's left directly at odds with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s dream that his children "will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character." Conservatives might argue that leftists are hypocritical on this score, that they are judging Obama by his skin color and judging...

  • The Tea Party Is Not Racist

    Since the Tea Party exploded onto the political scene a few years ago, critics have derided it as a movement full of racists. This is a bizarre notion, since the Tea Party originally began in response to the bank bailouts of the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008, which created the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP). As you might remember, this bill was passed under President George W. Bush, not President Barack Obama.

    CNN ^ | July 5, 2012 | Charles Garcia
    (CNN) -- Last month's Supreme Court decision in the landmark Arizona immigration case was groundbreaking for what it omitted: the words "illegal immigrants" and "illegal aliens," except when quoting other sources. The court's nonjudgmental language established a humanistic approach to our current restructuring of immigration policy. When you label someone an "illegal alien" or "illegal immigrant" or just plain "illegal," you are effectively saying the individual, as opposed to the actions the person has taken, is unlawful. The terms imply the very existence of an unauthorized migrant in America is criminal. In this country, there is still a presumption of...

    Rep. Charlie Rangel, D-N.Y., once said: "George (W.) Bush is our 'Bull' Connor -- and if that doesn't get to you, nothing will be able to get to you. It's time for us to be able to say that we're sick and tired, we're fired up and we're not going to take it anymore." Connor was a racist sheriff who sicced dogs and water hoses on civil rights workers in the '60s. Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., says Republicans "want to literally drag us all the way back to Jim Crow laws." The tactic is as obvious...

    This is what it smells like... Anybody out there care to hazard a guess as to what the uproar might be like if a Caucasian  presidential candidate -like Mitt Romney- actually produced and published a YouTube video pleading for ALL WHITE PEOPLE to unite for the sole purpose of ensuring we have a WHITE PRESIDENT? That it's their DUTY... and even that they owe it to their forebears? Perhaps the better question is 'Could Obama possibly be any more divisive?'  For me that's hard to imagine, anything shy of an all-out Helter-Skelter race war, anyway. The video below announced the 2012 launch...

    Ford and others, such as MSNBC news anchor Melissa Harris-Perry, say the media should not report news if it makes black people look bad. But most racial crimes and violence from black mobs in the New York area are usually not reported – not by the mainstream media anyway. Witnesses and others who know often find a way to drop a dime, or a video or Internet posting. Just a few days before the Heinberg beating, a group of students from a predominately black school in a predominantly black neighborhood in Brooklyn were “evicted” from the 9/11 Memorial site in...

    Repeat something and it becomes heard. Repeat something often and it becomes accepted fact. Repeat a lie and people believe it even if it defies logic. But if you’re a prominent person and you repeat something that has no factual basis, you truly are a disgusting individual. One of the accusations that the supporters and allies of President Obama have continued to assert is that challenges to Obama are based on something other than disagreement with his governing policies or philosophies. Unwilling to listen to opposing arguments, they’re convinced that every difference of opinion has to be based on distaste...
