    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.

    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.

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.

    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.)

    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.

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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

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...

    The following quotes are from the paperback edition from Three Rivers Press (New York), ISBN 978-1-4000-8277-3. The content is also verifiable from Google Books. It is important to state up front, and reiterate later, that the racist content of Dreams from My Father is 100 percent consistent with Mr. Obama's open association with hate-mongers like Jeremiah Wright and Al Sharpton. Pages 99-101 of the book are particularly informative because Barack Obama talks very explicitly of his racial identity politics. He identifies very clearly as an African-American as opposed to a melting pot American, which makes him totally unqualified to be...

    As Barack Obama's lead over Mitt Romney in the polls narrows, and his presumed fundraising advantage seems about to become a disadvantage, it's alibi time for some of his backers. His problem, they say, is that some voters don't like him because he's black. Or they don't like his policies because they don't like having a black president. So, you see, if you don't like Obamacare, it's not because it threatens to take away your health insurance, or to deny coverage for some treatments. It's because you don't like black people.

Just weeks ago, a group of 10-15 hoodie-wearing blacks allegedly stole clothing and raced out of the store. Their actions were captured on video. So far, the evidence makes it looks like just one more of the hundreds of episodes of racial lawlessness that have taken place in more than 60 cities over the last three years. But on a local forum, the reaction gave the situation a truly unique flavor: “As...

    Investigators are searching for dozens of teens reportedly involved in mob assaults on two consecutive nights in a Southeast Portland park. The Portland Police Bureau reports that a little after 10:30 p.m. Wednesday, responding officers found several groups of teens roaming the park. As they were telling the teens to clear out, a witness directed them to a 14-year-old boy who had sustained facial injuries in an alleged attack. The boy told police that he was with a friend when a group of African American teens approached him, beat him up, and stole his cell phone, iPod, headphones and hat....

    Looking over one of the worst crimes scenes in the history of downtown Indianapolis, state trooper Rod Russell was sad. “It’s just a few people who make it bad for everyone,” Russell said. But the “few” were thousands of blacks who roamed the streets of downtown in the aftermath of an Indianapolis Black Expo marred by fighting, vandalizing, assaulting and even shooting. Lots of shooting. Ten people were taken to local hospitals with bullet wounds. “Why did we find an AK-47 in the back of someone’s car,” asked Frank Straub, director of public safety, about the 2010 rampage. No one...

    NewsBusters reported moments ago that MSNBC contributor Julian Epstein strongly suggested President Obama being interrupted during a press conference in the White House Rose Garden Friday was because he was African-American. About an hour later, MSNBC's Touré took it a step further saying definitively, "This disrespect of this human being cannot be disconnected from the fact that he’s black” (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary): (VIDEO AT LINK) After Touré said this on the Dylan Ratigan Show, fellow MSNBC contributor Krystal Ball agreed saying, “100 percent.” Host Ratigan asked Touré to elaborate. “There is a basic, lesser humanity generally...

    A Politico reporter has suggested that racism was behind Neil Munro's questioning of President Obama at the White House yesterday. Saying "it's very, very difficult to place race outside of this context," the Politico's Joe Williams claimed racially-motivated direspect of PBO is part of a pattern among conservatives, citing Rep. Joe Wilson, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, and the Tea Party. View the video here.

    CLEVELAND — President Barack Obama's presidential campaign checked the identification of the supporters attending Obama's "framing" event at Cuyahoga Community College today. The 1,500 supporters in attendance picked up tickets at campaign offices in Northeast Ohio beginning on Monday, though tickets to the event made no mention of an ID requirement. Jessica Kershaw, the Obama campaign's Ohio Press Secretary, confirmed in a statement to BuzzFeed that the campaign checked every supporter's identification at the door. "We checked every ID at the door to make sure it matched with the name on the ticket that supporters filled out," she said. "We...
  • Dirty secret of black-on-Asian violence is out

    San Francisco Chronicle ^ | May 2, 2010 | C.W. Nevius
    San Francisco's hidden truth is out. That's what community organizer Carol Mo calls the realization that Asian residents are being targeted for robberies, burglaries and intimidation by young black men. "It is San Francisco's dirty little secret," said Mo, a former Safety Network Community organizer in the Sunset District. "It's not news to us." Hundreds of people marched into Tuesday's Board of Supervisors meeting to express their fear, frustration and outrage. But so far the response has been disappointing, particularly from the San Francisco Police Department. It seems intent on downplaying the role of race and its impact in the...

    The San Francisco Examiner calls it a “dirty secret:” Groups of black people targeting Asians for violence, robbery and even murder. “In 85 percent of (300) physical assault crimes, the victims were Asian and the perpetrators were African American,” the newspaper said recently, citing a police study. In Philadelphia, secrets may be even more violent and widespread. Over the last three years, the Philadelphia Daily News found “at least 15 home invasions or other attacks on Asian business owners outside their businesses in Philadelphia, Delaware and Montgomery counties in 2008, followed by another spike of at least 19 actual or...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Chicago Police hope surveillance pictures help lead them to one of three weekend mob attacks on people downtown. As WBBM Newsradio’s Bernie Tafoya reports, around 10:30 p.m. Saturday, a 23-year-old man was beaten up on the CTA Red Line near the State-Lake stop Saturday by a group of about six teenagers. The teens had just stolen the man’s 24-year-old wife’s iPhone 4S. She had dropped the phone, and a teen had picked it up and taken it for himself. The man told the teen to give his wife her iPhone back. But they instead began punching him...

    If a white man with no business experience of any kind, on any level, were elected president and his economic plan increased government spending, increased government intrusion into private business, and increased taxes on the so-called rich–what would criticism of him be because he is white? If this same white president employed failed Keynesian economic strategies which resulted in his increasing our total national debt more than the first 41 presidents combined, in less than three years of his first term in office–would criticism of him be because he is white? If this hypothetical white president were driving us off...

    I have written numerous articles about how Jasper, TX Police Chief Rodney Pearson is not a good guy. I just wrote an article today about how this Jasper, TX Police Chief was finally fired. I am sure it will not be long before all the liberal media and civil rights groups come out of the woodworks to cry racism. They will pull the race card and say that Rodney Pearson was fired because he was black. They will ignore the facts that show that Rodney Pearson was fired because he was just not a good police chief who should not...
