    Editor’s Note: This story contains spoilers for the film Black Panther. Black Panther’s Wakanda is a near-utopic vision of how a country could look; perhaps the best depiction of Afrofuturism ever captured on film. There were thriving and ideological-diverse cities surrounded by expansive and bucolic countrysides. There was modern technology perfectly weaved in to cultural tradition, a melding that was symbiotic instead of antagonistic. And while I didn’t see this happening during the movie, I’m sure Wakanda has amazing bottomless brunches. Unfortunately, a present-day attempt to recreate Wakanda would be unrealistic. Mainly because we’re roughly 20,000 years behind Wakandan tech....

    Over the week, there have been waves of backlash at The Metropolitan Opera’s newest season announcement. A recent Washington Post made the rounds, taking to task the institution’s insistence on an entirely white and male composer list, as well as a completely male roster of conductors taking the podium. As a white man, there have been and continue to be countless times in which I have needed to recognize that privilege, white supremacy, homophobia, toxic masculinity, and gender normativity are layered issues. It’s easy to call a Nazi a racist because they are so obviously a racist. Not all racists...
  • Kevin Durant says comments about him and LeBron James by news pundit were 'racist'

    Kevin Durant and LeBron James' video on Uninterrupted covered a multitude of topics: being All-Stars, being rich black men and living under President Donald Trump. James has been a vocal critic of Trump in the past, and this was no different. "(Trump) doesn't give a f--- about people," James said, and Durant agreed with him. That prompted Fox News host Laura Ingraham to respond to their comments about Trump. She said they should "shut up and dribble" instead of giving their thoughts on the president of The United States. In an interview with USA Today's Sam Amick, Durant responded to...

    Once upon a time, American schools were something to be proud of, with high expectations and students who – by some accounts – graduated high school with what is now the equivalent of two years of college under their belts. Most schools were under local control and were highly responsive to parents. Today all that has changed. We rank 36th on the world stage. Despite spending on average $12,000 per student per year, public education has become a joke. Why? There are endless reasons, but I’ll give two. One, public education does not permit competition among schools. Journalist and columnist...

    The President of Evergreen State College announced this week that the college is predicting a 20 percent drop in enrollment for the upcoming fall semester. Evergreen president George Bridges announced this week that the college is facing a 20 percent drop in enrollment for the upcoming fall semester. The school currently boasts a student body of 3,800, but with the graduation of the current class of seniors this spring and the introduction of a smaller freshman class this fall, the total student body will drop to 3,100 students. The college was also hit with a five percent drop in enrollment...

    The Occidental Observer ^ | Feb 14, 2018 | Hewitt E. Moore
    After all, freedom of speech is one of the pillars of “White supremacy.” Which, ironically enough, enables people like Mr Blow to publicly call the most powerful man in the world racial epithets on a daily basis. The fact is that if Mr Blow couldn’t write about “racism,” he wouldn’t have anything to write about. In reality, the rhetoric surrounding race has been hijacked and weaponized for political gain by those with an anti-White agenda. A word that has transcended its literal definition and evolved into a slur used relentlessly against non-conforming Whites as a modus operandi for character assassination....

I need to ask you a question. Are you sick of living in a racist country that has twice elected a black president? And are you sick of living in a racist country where a movie featuring a black actor as a black superhero is poised to set box office records? Are you tired of that racist country? Are you tired...

Rhondesia Betton claims in her lawsuit that officers didn't make sure the people who were kicked out of the restaurant following the earlier disturbance had left the scene completely.

    NFL players kneeling during the National Anthem had a lot of people upset this past season. Even the discussion of politics that took over sports was enough to put some fans off the game. Yet players and their supporters insisted they had a right to be heard. Of course, we're hearing now that San Francisco 49er Reuben Foster, one of that team's "kneelers" who wanted to protest police brutality, has been arrested for domestic violence: Mere weeks after being arrested in his native Alabama on marijuana charges, the 2017 first-round pick is in even more hot water off the field....

    The Star Spangled Banner will no longer be played at rallies at California High School in San Ramon after student leaders determined the song is racially insensitive. "It was brought to our attention that the national anthem’s third verse is outdated and racially offensive, wrote the president of the school's Associated Study Body. "We had nothing but good intentions by removing the song so that we could be fully inclusive to our student body." [Snip] The student body president posted a letter on the high school's website defending the decision to ban the song by citing a third verse that...

    RUSH: Brian, throw this on the switcher. Social media is having the greatest time with the portraits of Barack Hussein O and Michelle (My Belle) O. And I just want to show you one example. The Obama portrait interestingly is getting more heat than the Michelle portrait because of the “what is it” factor. What are these two trying to do? It’s obvious these two portraits are not gonna look like any other portrait anywhere, and that’s probably one of the objectives. But I think there are other components here. What we’ve just flashed up on the Dittocam is one...

    Who is Barack Obama’s? I mean really, who is he? Many Conservatives feared the worst when Obama was elected. I smelled a racist and a Marxist. Earlier this month we learned that Obama’s liked to rub elbowed with a famously vicious anti-Semite, Louis Farrakhan. The picture of the two shaking hands and grinning gleefully never circulated until now. Now we find out that Obama’s official portrait artist drew herself holding the heads of beheaded white women. Who is Barack Obama, America? Who is he really and what has he done?

    The artist who painted former President Obama’s portrait for the Portrait Gallery, part of the Smithsonian Institution, has an interesting past. While reviewing previous works by artist Kehinde Wiley, it was discovered that he has a great fondness for painting black women beheading white women. Both beheading pieces are titled “Judith beheading Holofernes”, referencing a story in the Book of Judith, which involves a beautiful woman who seduces an invading general before he is able to destroy their land, gets him drunk, and then decapitates him.

We all know those hypocrites are never going to do that.

    The Austin Justice Coalition is asking community members to donate copies from a specific list of fiction and nonfiction titles to the Carver Branch of the library system. The city came up with the list of 126 works at the group’s request, and the donations will expand Carver’s collection. “For me, even if we get two books, it’s better than nothing,” said Ishia Lynette, AJC’s social media and community service director. She’s organizing the Black Literature Matters donation event Monday as part of the organization’s Black Unity Week. Carver already has a piece of its collection dedicated to African American...

    The Boston Police Department apologized early Monday after tweeting a Black History Month tribute post that honored a white man. The tweet, which was deleted less than an hour after it went up Sunday night, was posted on the department’s official account “in honor of #BlackHistoryMonth.” However, the tweet celebrated the accomplishments of former Boston Celtics coach and president Red Auerbach, who was white. Police officials responded to mounting criticism Monday on Twitter.
  • Vice Airs Documentary On Black ‘Healing Retreats’ For People Who Need ‘A Break From White People’

    A new video from Vice News published Friday focuses on a healing retreats for “Women of Color” where participants can go to get away from white people. The founder says that white people are so destructive that they “shouldn’t even have passports.” The retreat is called the “Women of Color Healing Retreat” and takes place in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica. Vice News notes that it “specifically banned white people.” The narrator notes that one attendee “needed a break–from white people.” The founder, Andrea X, expressed the opinion that white people–but white Americans specifically, shouldn’t be allowed to have passports or...

    When everything is about race, nothing is about race. The left plays the race card as often as it plays the Nazi or gender card, its hackneyed alternative to any substantive discussion about issues and policy. It's much like those pull-string dolls: pull the string of a liberal and hear about race, gender, skin color, or immigration status. And not much else. Race became the National Football League theme this year, as a bunch of privileged young athletes, being paid millions of dollars for playing a game, supported by an organization worth $75 billion, found it necessary to take a...

    It’s been less than a week and I’ve already found something else the SJWs have ruined: the Olympics. It seems there was a bit of a kerfuffle over who would carry the flag for Team USA in the opening ceremony. The honor is determined by a vote of the the eight American winter sports federations that participate in the Olympics. This year their vote split 4-4 for Erin Hamlin (female, white) and Shani Davis (male, black). In the event of a tie the US Olympic committee has previously established a procedure whereby the designated flag bearer is determined by the...
