    The founder and former CEO of Papa John’s allegedly used a racial slur during a May conference call on how to avoid unflattering public relations incidents, Forbes reported Wednesday. John Schnatter, the company’s chairman and public face, allegedly used the slur during an exercise on handling public relations for the company after he faced blowback for tying the NFL's national anthem protests to lower sales for Papa John’s, according to the magazine. Forbes reported that Schnatter used the slur after being asked how he would distance himself from racist groups, and tried to play down the impact of his statement...

    Former Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul tweeted out a racist and anti-Semitic cartoon Monday before swiftly deleting it amid a backlash on social media. The cartoon featured a range of minorities depicted in stereotypical terms—including a Jewish man with a hooked nose, a black man with large lips as well as portrayals of Asians and Latinos. The four men are shown punching up at an Uncle Sam figure together with a speech bubble that reads, “Cultural Marxism!” Together, with the cartoon, Paul wrote: “Are you stunned by what has become of American culture? Well, it’s not an accident. You’ve probably...

    In a fawning profile for NBC News Foreign Correspondent Andrea Mitchell for the latest issue of InStyle magazine, colleague and Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd gushed that the veteran liberal reporter was “like the LeBron James of foreign correspondents.” He added: “It’s the same awe that I have watching him play after all these years. Why are you still this good? Aren’t you tired?” On Tuesday’s Today show, correspondent Stephanie Gosk touted the article: “The magazine hits news stands on July 6. It includes profiles of dozens of women, from Serena Williams to Aly Raisman to our own Andrea...

    The US Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) has removed Laura Ingalls Wilder's name from one of its awards over racist views and language. The association had received complaints for years over the Little House on the Prairie author's "anti-Native and anti-Black sentiments in her work". The ALSC board voted unanimously on Saturday to remove Wilder's name from the children's literature award. The medal will be renamed as the Children's Literature Legacy award. The ALSC, a division of the American Library Association, said Wilder's novels and "expressions of stereotypical attitudes" were "inconsistent with ALSC's core values". Wilder's children's novels...

    Guardian ^ | 20/6/18
    The far right in the UK is mobilising itself around protests over the imprisonment of the former English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson, a group of MPs, union leaders and political activists have said. In a letter to the Guardian, they say a violent 15,000-strong far-right protest in support of Robinson in central London on 9 June raised concerns for those who value diversity. “The racist right are using Robinson to reorganise,” the letter says. It says Nazi salutes and Islamophobia were central features of the protest. At one point demonstrators chased police through the streets of Whitehall. “This is...

    RUSH: You want to hear something odd, grab audio sound bite No. 23. On CBS This Morning, Co-Host Norah O’Donnell is speaking with The Oprah, well-known media mogul, about the impact The Oprah’s television show had on America. Question: “I think you captured people’s minds by talking about issues that people weren’t talking about on television — race and sexual abuse.” Now, before we play the answer here, the idea that we weren’t talking about before The Oprah came along? They still say that to this day. How many times you hear Eric Holder? “You don’t have the guts to...

    May 29, 2018 | MosesKnows
    Who Are the Racist? I noodled this question based on a belief that racism not acted upon is relatively benign. With that notion in mind which political party appears to be more racist than another? A belief that races and cultures are not equal need not assign inferiority. However, when that belief does assign and act upon inferiority that belief it is no longer benign. Political positions appear to divide into two points of view. The Conservative view is that representation and consideration must include all people. Their reason is that the Constitution does not empower legislation that does not...

    This afternoon, over 8,000 Starbucks locations will shut their doors so employees can attend diversity training. If you're looking for your afternoon jolt, you'll have to go elsewhere. Last month, Rashon Nelson and Donte Robinson were arrested in a Philadelphia Starbucks while waiting for a business meeting. A video capturing the arrest went viral. The coffee chain's CEO, Kevin Johnson, issued a personal apology on Good Morning America, calling the incident “completely inappropriate” and “reprehensible.” “While this is not limited to Starbucks, we’re committed to being a part of the solution,” Johnson said. “Closing our stores for racial bias training...

    A black porn star from the Bronx says he was duped into performing in a hardcore-racist adult film that depicts his white co-star calling him the N-word without his consent. Maurice McKnight, who goes by the stage name Moe the Monster, claims in a new lawsuit the hate speech was spewed during a shocking shoot in Tarzana, Calif., last July. McKnight says director James Joseph Camp tried - and failed - on two separate occasions during the production to get his pre-approval for use of the despicable dialogue. He claims Camp first approached him before filming began and said the...

    Liberals can go marching at the drop of a hat over any causes they feel are going to make them feel better about themselves at the time - even if they don’t have a grasp of the public policy issue which is the central purpose for that particular march. In this case, The Left was marching against the Left. Yes, liberals have been trying their darnedest to hang the Nazis on the Right since Hitler murdered six million Jews. But they were the National Socialist German Worker’s Party. But the Left always wants to rewrite history to make it in...

    Racism and discrimination continue to grab headlines throughout the country on a near daily basis. These incidents present themselves often in tangible, visible ways that lend themselves to those very headlines naturally, but not always. For example, one of them has hung prominently in school classrooms for decades as doctrine of healthy living despite, some argue, inequities of who exactly it is healthy for. Doctor Milton Mills explained these inequalities of the US Department of Agriculture’s dietary guidelines at length, painting a picture of the historical negligence of the US government when it comes to crafting their food recommendations to...

    Former first lady Michelle Obama said Saturday that she isn't interested in running for office, cautioning that "it doesn't matter who runs" for the presidency until the U.S. becomes unified. The remark came in an interview with actress Tracee Ellis Ross at the United State of Women Summit in Los Angeles when Obama appeared to respond to an audience member urging her to seek office. "Well, that's a whole other story because, that's not the answer either. And when I hear people say, 'you run,' it's part of the problem. We still didn't get 'yes we can' right," she said,...

    Bowing to criticism from Tamika Mallory, the radical Women's March organizer who's in deep with Louis Farrakhan, Starbucks has quietly dropped the Anti-Defamation League from its roster of groups that are supposed to come in and deliver to all its supposedly racist employees their "sensitivity training."
  • Student Of Racist “Promposal” Apologizes, Quits All School Events, BLM Threatens

    04/25/2018 1:52:48 PM PDT · by Liberty7732 · 26 replies
    The Florida high school student who made a racist sign asking his girlfriend to the prom has issued a profuse apology. His family issued a more profuse apology. But the promposal brouhaha is forcing him to forgo all the rest of his high school activities — a decision made in conjunction with the high school administration. There will be no prom, no graduation experience or anything else for him. So, quite a lot of consequences and punishment for a racist, but likely just stupid teenage boy stunt to get a girl. Lesson learned, move on, right? We all know that...

Mann, a white man who has spent years in the education industry, has begun leading workshops in San Francisco that encourage people in his demographic to explore feelings about race and gender and think about how to better assist women and nonwhites in their workplaces. Most diversity training is inclusive of all races and genders. But Stepping Up, Mann’s program that began in January, is unusual because the workshops are...

    Half-a-century ago today, Enoch Powell gave the speech that ended his political ambitions within the British Conservative Party, but ensured that he would be a more consequential figure than any of the hack timeservers who prospered in the Tory cabinets of Edward Heath. It's known to history as "the 'Rivers of Blood' speech", which is a slight misrendering of a characteristically Powellite classical allusion - even then, in the pre-soundbite era, a risky business for a politician seeking to curry favor with the media. To mark the anniversary, BBC Radio, controversially, aired a re-enactment of the speech, read by Ian...

Ieshaa Cash says last year Hylton was hired on as a manager at the 18th and Spruce Starbucks in Philadelphia and employees warned her that her new boss was “controlling, aggressive, and emotional.” That Starbucks location is under fire because that is where two Black men were arrested while sitting and waiting for a...

    A Brooklyn legislator was accused Wednesday of delivering a bizarre tirade against Jews, while ripping Mayor Bill de Blasio as a sellout, during a local community board meeting this week. Assemblywoman Diane Richardson’s 50-minute rant during the Board 17 meeting Monday night faulted Jews for gentrifying in her district, which includes East Flatbush, Flatbush, Crown Heights and Prospect Lefferts Gardens, according to an eyewitness.
