  • As many African-American see it, there are 2 Ben Carsons

    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Ayauna King-Baker loved Ben Carson’s “Gifted Hands” memoir so much that she made her daughter Shaliya read it. So when Carson showed up in town to sign copies of his new book, King-Baker dragged the giggly 13-year-old along to the bookstore so they could both meet him. To King-Baker, Carson’s “up-by-your-bootstraps” life story makes him a genuine celebrity worth emulating in the African-American community. But she’s also a Pompano Beach Democrat watching Carson rise in the Republican presidential polls. For King-Baker and many other African-Americans, the vast majority of whom are Democrats, there are two...

    About 100 people gathered outside the Fourth Precinct police station in north Minneapolis on Thursday to celebrate ­Thanksgiving with friends and family brought together in a time of turmoil. They huddled around fires, prayed and gave thanks while sharing overflowing plates of donated food beneath the falling snow. It marked the 12th day of protests outside the precinct headquarters since Jamar Clark died after being shot by police Nov. 15. The gathering, which protesters called “BlacksGiving,” came a day after Clark’s ­family laid him to rest. At the Wednesday funeral, more than 300 people paid their respects and said goodbye...

    Donald Trump's notorious Twitter presence landed him in a little hot water with segments of the internet commentariat Sunday with a tweet about black-on-black crime.Trump appears to have been arguing that the new national focus on criminal justice reform is perhaps misguided, as most slain African-Americans are killed by other African-Americans, not police officers. Trump's argument and the graphic he shared immediately drew the ire of some thinkers. Some argued that Trump was pandering to sentiment that was already prevalent within the Republican base.Additionally, some took exception to the veracity of the claims in Trump's graphic, arguing particularly that the...

The tweet was apparently Trump’s response to a Twitter thread about support from white supremacists for the GOP front-runner. It also comes the day after a Black Lives Matter protester said he was physically and verbally assaulted at a Trump rally.

    It pays to have friends in high places. Al Sharpton gave himself a 71 percent raise last year after his National Action Network group drew a record $6.9 million in donations — as the controversial cleric’s association with Mayor de Blasio and President Obama lent him a newfound air of legitimacy. De Blasio’s election gave Sharpton a seat at City Hall, as the mayor treated him as an adviser and presented him at a press event next to Police Commissioner Bill Bratton after the death of Eric Garner. Also in 2014, Obama addressed NAN’s annual convention, bringing along five...

    Jennifer Harvey, a Professor of Religion at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, is calling on "white Christians" to repent for their forefathers' sins and their current privilege by paying reparations. Speaking at Drew Theological School, Dr. Harvey said that calling all races "equal" is "a morally incoherent paradigm" that cannot solve the racial injustices that are in the United States. Instead, white Christians need to "repent" by paying reparations to African Americans. "Reconciliation rests on the assumption that all of our differences can be similarly celebrated and embraced," she explained. "I can come to better love and appreciate your...

If you missed that debate, you can be forgiven because the DNC very intentionally wanted as few people to watch it as possible. However, thanks to a South Park scene of that debate many more people will become aware of it, including a topicthat Hillary Clinton would prefer you not dwell upon.

    In a stinging rebuke to President Barack Obama by Republicans and Democrats, the House ignored a veto threat Thursday and overwhelmingly approved GOP legislation erecting fresh hurdles for Syrian and Iraqi refugees trying to enter the United States. Forty-seven Democrats joined all but two Republicans as the House passed the measure by a veto-proof 289-137 margin, a major setback to the lame duck president on an issue —the Islamic State group and the refugees fleeing it — that shows no signs of easing. The vote exceeded the two-thirds majority required to override a veto, and came despite a rushed, early...

    Half a century ago, student activists liberated themselves—partly, at least—from in loco parentis: the paternalistic notion that college administrators should serve as watchful guardians, restricting students’ activities and rights in order to provide a safe environment for them, the way a mother or father would. Today, students across the country are determined to undo this liberation. At Yale University, a group of aggrieved minority students have demanded the resignations of administrators who wisely rejected calls for emotional coddling. Nicholas Christakis, the master of Yale’s Silliman College, and his wife, Erika Christakis, an early childhood educator at Yale, conveyed to students...

Mizzou president Timothy Wolfe announced his resignation on Monday after members of the school's 4-5 football team announced they would boycott team activities unless the school acceded to certain demands surrounding racial equality. Unsurprisingly, Wolfe's resignation did little to quell the mob. On Monday afternoon, activists who had demanded Wolfe's resignation abruptly demanded that...

    In the past few months the Black Lives Matter organization has managed to largely hijack the Democrat primaries by strong-arming both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders into vouching for the movement, despite its radical calls for violence against the police and divisive rhetoric against putative white supremacy. Democrat spokespeople and the main-stream media routinely brush this aside as unrepresentative of the organization in general, though no BLM leader has condemned the incitement. On FOX, Bill O’Reilly has repeatedly confronted the media, Democrat operatives and leftist intellectuals for excusing BLM’s divisiveness and calls for violence.

    An illegal immigrant MS-13 gang member the Obama administration had released on bond committed an unprovoked attack on a sheriff's deputy, slugging the deputy as he worked on a traffic report while sitting in his car, the Frederick County, Md., sheriff's department said Friday. Jose Misael Reyes-Reyes, 18, had been arrested in May on weapons charges and in June on charges of malicious destruction of property, but federal immigration authorities had left him free on bond while he awaited a deportation hearing, the sheriff's office said. Given his age, Mr. Reyes-Reyes was potentially part of the recent surge of illegal...

    Writing for the Huffington Post, Zeba Blay lauded and quoted statements that compared white people to "rattlesnakes" and which said that 90% of white people could be racists. Blay posted a video of Muhammad Ali from 1971 in which Ali said it's counter-productive to say that not all white people are racist. In the article, Blay quotes Ali as saying: There are many white people who mean right and in their hearts wanna do right. If 10,000 snakes were coming down that aisle now, and I had a door that I could shut, and in that 10,000, 1,000 meant right,...

    In case you've missed it, Quentin Tarantino has tripled down on comments he made during an anti-cop protest two weeks ago when he implied police officers are murderers. Not only has Tarantino refused to apologize, he's playing the victim. Fox News' Greg Gutfeld is having none of it and called the Hollywood director a "flat faced," "loud mouth putz" yesterday on The Five. "The flat faced fool went on MSNBC to extend on his anti-cop blather, linking it to white supremacy," Gutfeld says. "The clueless cretin then cites the First Amendment, as if anyone's denying his right to yak. No...

    Quentin Tarantino defended comments that have triggered boycotts from police unions, and argued police brutality “ultimately what I feel is a problem of white supremacy in this country” on Wednesday’s “All In with Chris Hayes” on MSNBC. Tarantino explained his statement that triggered the boycott by saying, “Well, we were at a rally that was dealing with unarmed people, mostly black and brown, who have been shot and killed, or beaten, or strangled by the police, and I was obviously referring to the people in those type of situations. I was referring to Eric Garner. I was referring to Sam...

    Discussing the Black Lives Matter movement and racial reconciliation, Glenn Beck said Wednesday on his television show that the country needs to “atone” for its past. “I know a lot of people disagree with this — they’re still yelling about slavery — I’m sorry, dude, 600,000 people, most of them white, lost their lives,” Beck said. “The country was washed in blood and Abraham Lincoln was willing to lose it all … against slavery.” atoned for slavery then, but “picked it right back up” in reconstruction. “We just changed from slavery to something else, … but there was no atonement...

    HH: I begin with Columnist To the World, Mark Steyn, from www.steynonline.com. And Mark, probably the most important news of the day is that the Gunnison Sage Groush is probably going to be listed as endangered in Colorado, this shocking people across the Rocky Mountain State.

    Would somebody please explain the Bill of Rights to Quentin Tarantino? The film director apparently thinks that Freedom of Speech is a one-way street: he gets to call cops "murderers," but they don't get to criticize him for it. Appearing on MSNBC show this evening, asked by Chris Hayes if he was surprised by the "vitriol" of police reaction to his speech at a recent rally in New York at which he called police "murderers," Quentin whined: "I was under the impression I was an American and that I had First Amendment rights." Poor baby. Yeah, you do. So do...

    (Snip) Lights! Sirens! Demands for ID without even giving a reason! Trayvon Martin! Somehow, though, Professor Bland managed to escape with her life and go on to publish her accusations. Unfortunately for her, it turns out that the police had a dash cam in their car and they were on microphones for the entire encounter. As described at Fox News, the short movie which unfolds tells a rather different story. Or perhaps I should say, an entirely different story. (Snip) Former Dallas mayor Ron Kirk (who is also black) referred to Bland as someone looking for her Skip Gates moment....

    On Oct. 27, the Michigan Senate Judiciary Committee met in Lansing for a hearing on two bills that address an aspect of overcriminalization that has been the subject of many Mackinac Center studies and commentaries, namely, the failure of criminal statutes to specify a culpable mental state for the commission of a crime. The bills were Senate Bill 20, sponsored by Sen. Mike Shirkey, R-Clarklake, and House Bill 4713, sponsored by Rep. Ed McBroom, R-Vulcan. In their current versions, SB 20 and HB 4713 take different tacks in reversing the trend of passing criminal laws that remain silent as to...

    Imagine a city where all the major economic planks of the statist or "progressive" platform have been enacted: A "living wage" ordinance, far above the federal minimum wage, for all public employees and private contractors. A school system that spends significantly more per pupil than the national average. A powerful school employee union that militantly defends the exceptional pay, benefits and job security it has won for its members. Other government employee unions that do the same for their members. A tax system that aggressively redistributes income from businesses and the wealthy to the poor and to government bureaucracies. Would...

    FLINT, MI -- The Michigan chapter of Al Sharpton's National Action Network says the state needs to set up a special court to hear criminal cases against juveniles who may have been poisoned by lead contaminants in Flint water. "All juvenile offenders arrested, charged or incarcerated in Genesee County that may have consumed Flint water during the period of lead contamination should be tested for lead content in their blood," Sam Riddle, state political director of Michigan NAN, said in a news release.
