    CNN political commentator Angela Rye called for reparations during a heated discussion with Donald Trump supporter Carl Higbie on air Tuesday afternoon. ... Higbie, a former Navy SEAL and conservative pundit, started by commenting on how New York City’s skyline represents Donald Trump’s accomplishments and how every other American wants to achieve the same thing. He added that the Democratic Party wants to keep Americans dependent on the government. Rye, the former executive director of the Congressional Black Caucus, became visibly angry at Higbie’s statement.

    Prof. William Darity, public policy, Duke University, and Kirsten Mullen, a folklorist and art consultant, addressed racial discrimination and its profound effect on economic inequality in the United States at a lecture Thursday. Mullen discussed how some of our country’s most prominent investment banks, insurance companies and institutions — including Wachovia, Lehman Brothers and Ivy League universities — have ties to slavery. Slavery in the United States was “not that long ago” from a generational perspective, according to Mullen. “It ended … 149 years ago,” she explained. “If a new generation comes into existence every 30 years, the youngest generation...

    "Human rights" panel accuses American police of being modern-day lynchers.Just when you thought the United Nations could not sink any lower, a UN panel has issued a report recommending that the United States pay “reparations” to African-Americans for its “legacy of colonial history, enslavement, racial subordination and segregation, racial terrorism and racial inequality.” The report accuses the United States of maintaining “institutional and structural racial discrimination and racism against people of African descent.” The panel that issued this claptrap is the self-styled Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent, which reported on the visit of three of its...

    A United Nations working group is getting into the fray on U.S. racial discrimination. After 14 years, and 20 days of speaking with U.S. officials, activists, and families of people killed by police in major American cities, it has issued its conclusions: the slave trade was a crime against humanity and the U.S. government should pay reparations. “Contemporary police killings and the trauma it creates are reminiscent of the racial terror lynching in the past,” a French member of the working group of U.N. experts, Mireille Fanon-Mendes-France, said after their meetings in the U.S. The U.N. experts traveled to major...

    A group of descendants of slaves sold by Georgetown University in 1838 was unsatisfied with the unprecedented steps the college took to accommodate them, and demanded partnership in a $1 billion foundation vaguely aimed at producing "reconciliation." In 1838, amid dire financial trouble, Georgetown University sold off 272 slaves for $115,000 (over $3 million in today's dollars). Last week, the university's president, John DeGioia, announced Georgetown would offer special admissions preference for any of the descendants of those slaves, and he promised to build an on-campus memorial to the slaves and renamed a building after one of them. He also...

Those ties go back nearly two centuries, when the Washington, D.C., school sold 272 slaves and used the proceeds to pay off debt. Georgetown President John J. DeGioia will offer a public apology Thursday afternoon for the 1838 sale and will also outline what the university plans to do to acknowledge racism in its past. In addition to offering descendants the same preferential status in admissions that Georgetown currently offers children of alumni,...

    A new website allows non-white people to ask for and receive “reparations” from white people, more often than not in the form of a financial windfall: free laptops, tuition for Ivy League schools, an engagement ring and credit assistance are a few examples of reparations requested, offered or already paid out on the site. Reparations.me, founded by a black woman named Natasha Marin, has a Craigslist-like layout where non-white people post their requests for reparations from white people. White people can fulfill requests as well as post their own offers of reparations.

Marin put together the Reparations site and accompanying Facebook event. It was a place where people of color could post needs and white people could help meet those needs.

    In the last two years that I’ve organized around antiblack violence and within the #BlackLivesMatter movement, I’ve witnessed white people showing up more and more to protests and rallies. At first, when we were protesting for Mike Brown for months in 2014, personally I was a lot more open to welcoming white allies who wanted to come out and help us fight. My personal/political naiveté and the need for more bodies trumped questioning their motives in the heat of the moment of something so important. But after a while, I started realizing that trying to work with white people in...

Roger Williams (R-Tex.) said, "the spread of misinformation and constant instigation by prominent leaders, including our president" contributed to the killings. Rep.

    Just a question: Should the police killings by people inspired by (or belonging to) Black Lives Matter be used as a justification to deprive law-abiding Americans of their gun rights, as Republicans now appear to be supporting? Or should we conservatives instead tell everyone to take a deep breath and first have the administration show that they're willing to deal with Black Lives Matter as a terrorist group, as they should have been dealt with practically from the start? After that, then we can discuss what, if any steps, need to be taken to cut down on mass killings.

    NEW YORK (AP) -- Since the birth of the Black Lives Matter movement three years ago, many white Americans have wrestled with how to respond. Some chose racist-tinged ridicule. Others, by word or deed, sought to show solidarity as blacks protested the deaths of fellow blacks in encounters with police. Still others, untouched personally, watched from a distance in silence. This past week, as graphic videos portrayed two more such deaths and five police officers were slain at a march in Dallas protesting the killings, whites have joined blacks in forceful calls for unity that cut across color lines.

    Just heard a news show with a statement from Valerie's man child where he said that Black Lives Matter doesn't think they are racist. They also, he says, think Blue Lives Matter AND that All Lives Matter. The media apparently hasn't challenged these LIES by Obama.

    Morning Joe did a very decent job today of covering the shooting of police officers in Dallas and the issue of police shootings of African-American. The remarks were generally even-handed. Even Al Sharpton was cautious and balanced in his comments. And so it was surprising that of all people, Chuck Todd made the most tendentious remark. Speaking of the shooting of Philando Castile in St. Paul, Minnesota, and discussing the need for better police training, Todd said: “how do you train prejudice and hate out of somebody’s heart? That’s a tough thing.” Is there racism among police? Of course, as...

    "The mob that came to disrupt the Trump rally in Chicago was neither spontaneous nor innocent, nor new. It was a mob that has been forming ever since the Seattle riots against the World Trade Organization in 1999, whose target was global capitalism. The Seattle rioters repeated their outrages for the next two years and then transformed itself into the so-called “anti-war” movement to save the Saddam dictatorship in Iraq. Same leaders, funders and troops. The enemy was always America and its Republican defenders. When Obama invaded countries and blew up families in Muslim countries, there was no anti-war movement...

    A recent survey on voters’ attitudes about race shows that Clinton’s supporters are more likely to see Blacks as violent people and criminals. The survey report was released Wednesday, June 29. The questionnaires included 21 questions that concerned the issues of race and were handed out to over 16,000 of possible voters in the period between April and June. The outcome of the poll was shocking; it showed that one-third of Clinton’s supporters considered Black people to be “violent criminals” compared to Whites. More than 20 percent of the former Secretary of State’s supporters saw Black people as “lazy”, alleging...

    The vice president said he’d like to take away federal funding from those universities. Less than a month after Vice President Joe Biden penned an emotional letter to the woman sexually assaulted by Brock Turner, the White House has announced sweeping new rules for future visits to colleges campuses. Under the policy, President Barack Obama, Biden, their wives and members of the Cabinet will no longer visit higher education institutions where officials are deemed to be doing a poor job tackling the troubling frequency of reported sexual assaults, according to The Washington Post’s Juliet Eilperin. The move is the latest...
