  • Professors forcing students to support a political cause; not just unconstitutional, it's criminal

    Coach is Right ^ | 6/23/13 | Emma Karlin
    The next time we hear about a conservative college professor forcing his/her students to support a political position will be the first time such news comes to us. Pulling stunts like that is the province of the Left. Like most people of the Left, college professors are cowards and bullies who will do anything to force Americans to support their causes. Leftist college professors have created a “hostile” environment in our college classrooms. From first-hand experience I know this has been the case for at least forty years. Being one of only three straights (of 25 students) in a cynically...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Hispanics now outnumber African-Americans for the first time in most U.S. metropolitan areas, shifting the political and racial dynamics in cities once dominated by whites and blacks. Census figures released Thursday highlight the growing diversity of the nation's 366 metro areas, which were home to a record 83.7 percent share of the U.S. population.

    THE GREAT BLACK-HISPANIC SPLIT IT GOES FAR BEYOND CLINTON VS. OBAMA By STEVEN MALANGA Jackson: Long term, couldn't ease blacks' fears on immigration. January 22, 2008 -- FIERCE fighting over the minority vote may be the real surprise of the '08 Democratic race, with many blacks gravitating to Sen. Barack Obama and Hispanics to Sen. Hillary Clinton. But this split isn't just about these candidates; it's been a long time coming. The tensions have many sources, but the one few analysts

    Black anger grows as illegal immigrants transform urban neighborhoods. Terry Anderson is angry. From his KRLA-AM radio perch in Los Angeles, the black talk-show host thunders, “I have gone on the streets and talked to people at random here in the black community, and they all ask me the same question: ‘Why are our politicians and leaders letting this happen?’ ” What’s got Anderson—motto: “If You Ain’t Mad, You Ain’t Payin’ Attention”—so worked up isn’t the Jena Six or nooses on Columbia University doorknobs; it’s the illegal immigrants who allegedly murdered three Newark college students last August. And when he...

    Rainbow Coalition racism By Tribune-Review Something to consider, though. The superheros of the black movement -- Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton -- are noticeably absent when a black Republican is attacked. They have no problem donning their race-card capes when a liberal black is attacked. But they had a hard time finding Maryland on the map when New York Sen. Chuck Schumer's henchmen did an illegal credit check on Michael Steele. Where was their outrage? Their circus-like news conferences?

    The American Conservative ^ | December 19, 2005 | Roger D. McGrath
    South Central Los Angeles ushers in a new era of racial tension—this time between blacks and Hispanics. Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow Coalition has a ways to go in Los Angeles, where Mexicans and blacks are killing each other at record rates. The action is particularly hot in South Central Los Angeles and in nearby Compton, two areas that have undergone a dramatic shift during the last two decades from virtually all black to half or more Hispanic. Most of the schools in these areas are now majority Latino, something I could not possibly have imagined when I was in high school...

    On a day meant to celebrate a great man and his legacy, all Americans should be grateful. We should all be grateful for our freedom, for our quality of life, for our neighbors, and for this entire country we call home. Yet every year new outcries of inequality and hatred arise on this day. What a shame for Dr. King’s legacy.

    Martin Luther King Jr. would have supported same-sex "marriage," a former aide to the slain civil rights leader said last night at an event sponsored by the Smithsonian Institution's Anacostia Museum.     Speaking of King's "Christian commitment to a socially conscious democracy," former Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) activist Jack O'Dell asked, "Why would he exclude people because of their sexual preference?"     The homosexual rights movement is "another dimension of the struggle for human rights," Mr. O'Dell said at an annual observance of King's birth, held at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History. He described as "unconscionable" the November...

    In his recent op-ed column in the Chicago Sun Times, Rev. Jesse Jackson claimed, “Republicans have no monopoly on religion or faith”. I agree. No social ideology has a “monopoly” on religion or faith. No political party can claim to be the voice of God. Rev. Jackson, you’re absolutely right. He goes on to make a point that, during the presidency of George W. Bush, “poverty...including childhood poverty...is up.” To tell you the truth, I don’t know if he’s right, or not on this. He didn’t site any statistics. He didn’t quote any figures. He just said, “under this president,...

    Forget Florida. And Ohio. And Pennsylvania. The next President of the United States may well be elected in Michigan. In 2000, Al Gore carried the Wolverine State by more than 200,000 votes. This year's conventional wisdom has conceded it to John Kerry. Two weeks ago, Democratic operatives began telling reporters that Michigan was in the bag. They were wrong. Last Thursday, a poll in the Detroit News put President Bush ahead in Michigan by 4 points. A Knight-Ridder survey showed the race is a virtual tie. This came as a shock to the Kerry camp, which has concentrated its efforts...

    Motor City Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick is right to be distancing himself from a City Council proposal to create a racially exclusive business district in Detroit to help black entrepreneurs. Not only would the plan, dubbed African Town, heighten racial tensions unnecessarily. It could also exacerbate the very problem it aims to solve. The insidious premise of this economic development plan, which was approved last week in a 7-to-2 vote overriding Mr. Kilpatrick's earlier veto, is that immigrants from Latin America, Asia and the Middle East are "stealing" jobs and resources from native blacks. But for the presence of these foreigners,...

    WASHINGTON - Civil rights activist Jesse Jackson joined the campaign of Sen. John Kerry on Wednesday as a poll showed support for the presidential candidate slipping among black Americans, a critical Democratic constituency. The Pew Research Center said Tuesday its latest poll showed 73 percent of blacks supporting Kerry compared to 12 percent supporting President Bush. In 2000, Al Gore won 90 percent of the black vote. Democratic groups have aired campaign ads criticizing Republican efforts to woo black voters. The Kerry campaign said Jackson, who will serve as a senior adviser, will travel to battleground states to energize Democratic...

    With roughly 100,000 Chicagoans between 16 and 24 out of work or not in school, Rainbow Push was hoping to call to action disenfranchised young people, but a group of people disenchanted with Jesse Jackson led a spirited protest that sometimes drowned out the message of more jobs. Hundreds converged upon a frigid Federal Plaza today to hear politicians and political candidates talk passionately about creating more jobs. "Since this is a union working town the unions need to provide job training and set up a trade school in the city of Chicago," said Sen. James Meeks, 15th District. However...

    What Legacy from the Radical Internationalism of 1968? Max Elbaum Seattle used to be just a city. Since December 1999, it has become shorthand for grassroots protest against the injustices of global capitalism. This is hardly the first time a place-name has come to symbolize a watershed in opposition movements. There were a host of such markers in the huge wave of U.S. protests against racism and the Vietnam War during and after 1968: "Chicago" (referring to the 1968 Democratic Convention where police beat demonstrators as they chanted "the whole world is watching"); "San Francisco State" (where a 1968-69 strike...

    How fitting that the Rev. Jesse Jackson has subjected NASCAR to his unique brand of activism. Like so much of Jackson's world, car racing involves noise, smoke, and spinning in circles while ultimately going nowhere. Meanwhile, poor blacks in the bleachers wonder how this helps them. "The fact of the matter is there is frustration because of exclusion," Jackson told a 1999 conference attended by NASCAR chairman, Bill France Jr. "We must now turn that pain to power. We were qualified to play baseball before 1947. We are qualified to race cars now." NASCAR responded by paying $150,000 to sponsor...
