    The fog of war still obscures many of the events surrounding MH17 and it’s still too early to draw any hard conclusions about what occurred, but in the age of instant information, everyone is dissecting the smallest bit of information, however well or poorly verified it might be. Today the lazy and not-very-bright Josh Marshall waded into these waters, with predictable results: Following up on my piece from last night about Putin’s epic goof, here’s an amazing little nugget from David Remnick’s post about the Malaysian Air shoot down. The reference is to the puffed up separatist ‘warlord’ who appears...

    (Offensive Language Warning) Sunday on HuffPost Live, comedian Joan Rivers and host Marc Lamont Hill were discussing the country getting too politically correct in our race descriptions when the 81-year old said the "n-word" and then attempted to balance it out by racially with a Jewish insult, who is Jewish. Lamont Hill looked stunned by Rivers using the word and balked when Rivers said "get over it." Lamont Hill shot back, "It's tough though," and moved on to the views questions segment. ...more (w/video)...
  • "Native Americans" a Much Worse Term than "Redskins"

    Lawrence journal world ^ | June 25, 2014 | Reasonmclucus
    The white hypocrites who complain about the term "redskins" use the term "native American" which when used in the way they are using it isn't much better than the other n-word. The word "redskins" is a physically descriptive term that doesn't have inherently negative characteristics. The word is one of the English translations of the Ottawa term "Oklahoma". If we consider the characteristics of the people the term "redskins" was first applied to, it's a positive term. The word "native" has two different uses. In general use the term "native " followed by a geographic region is used to indicate...

    It seems as though the racist accusations have turned on First Lady Michelle Obama after she made a grammar gaffe on Monday while speaking about part-time job salaries. Unlike when she inappropriately slanders someone or something for being racist, in her recent offending comments she was in fact acting the part. The First Lady used the word “gypped” while describing the earnings for part-time jobs, with specific regard to when she herself was a working mother as an ABC news reporter at the White House Summit on Working Families. The remark is now drawing some criticism from media outlets for...

Copeland, 82, one of three commissioners in the small town on the shores of Lake Winnepesaukee, used the racial slur in an email to the other commissioners. “I believe I did use the N-word in reference to the current occupant of the White House,” Copeland said. “For this, I do not apologize – he meets and exceeds my criteria for such.” Copeland...

    St. Louis Rams at Seattle SeahawksThe NFL Competition Committee has been engaged in talks since last Friday, discussing a variety of issues important to the league. One such matter is the proposed 15-yard penalty on players using the “N-word” on the field. Seattle Seahawks player Richard Sherman (pictured) is against the ban of the word, calling the potential rule “almost racist” in an interview. According to Sports Illustrated’s MMBQ, there remains a chance that the N-word ban may not go into effect but there could be a higher focus on language during games by officials. As it stands, the committee...

    RUSH: Have you heard about this? The NFL wants to penalize the use of the N-word -- 15 yards -- when used by the players on the field during the game. It'll be a 15-yard penalty for use of the N-word in a league populated by 75% African-Americans. Seventy-five percent of the players are African-American. Therefore, 75% statistically of the use of the word would be by black players. Fifteen-yard penalty. Now, there's a bunch of ways of looking at that. BREAK TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Anyway, the N-word.

    The NFL's competition committee is expected to enact a rule at their March owners meeting that would penalize players fifteen yards if they use the n-word on the field.

There are tons of Jeff Orrs. I don’t get it, and the more I see it — and it’s everywhere — the less I get it. There are thousands of otherwise well-adjusted adults who just can’t get close enough to college basketball teams. They begin to pant; their hearts go pitter-patter.

    In his speech to the Republican National Convention earlier this year, actor Clint Eastwood told the assembled crowd that there are more conservatives and moderates in Hollywood than they might think. Such people “play closer to the vest. They do not go around hot dogging it,” Eastwood said. Unfortunately, actress Stacey Dash is finding out the hard way what happens to those celebrities who are willing to think for themselves: they get attacked by the very people who claim to preach “tolerance” and “peace.” (Note: This blog post is “not safe for work” and certainly not for children.) The self-proclaimed...

    Actress Stacey Dash, who has starred in everything from the 90′s hit Clueless to CSI, prompted a firestorm on Twitter after publicly endorsing Republican nominee Mitt Romney, and then standing by her opinion. “Vote for Romney. The only choice for your future. @mittromney @teamromney #mittromney #VOTE #voteromney,” Dash wrote on her official Twitter page, accompanied by a photo of herself with an American flag. Not long after, presumed Obama supporters began insulting Dash for her opinion, saying she isn’t “black” enough, several even asking if the actress would just “kill herself.” One man wrote: “This hurts but you a Romney...

    Vice-President Biden tells blacks, Romney’s “gonna put y’all back in chains.” Mitt Romney accuses Obama of running a campaign of “anger and division.” Then MSNBC host Toure charges Romney with engaging in the “niggerization” of Obama. WHAT? As my black father (note emphasis) said, “That’s the most unintellectual thing I’ve ever heard. Is he [Toure] making up words” ? Toure’s making up words and spinning fiction! (Evidently, that’s what a former musical journalist turned political pundit does.) If Biden had included the “n-word” in his me (white) versus “you blacks” statement, Toure may have expressed mild outrage at the remarks....

    LEOMINSTER, Mass. - A Leominster officer who investigators say directed a racial slur at Boston Red Sox outfielder Carl Crawford has been fired by Mayor Dean Mazzarella.

The witnesses said Perrault, who was off-duty, called Crawford a "Monday," which the player interpreted as a racial slur. The word can be used as a derogatory term for blacks, and is often associated with Mondays being one of the least-liked days of...

    During Sunday’s broadcast of “CNN Newsroom,” correspondent Susan Candiotti — the reporter covering the recent shootings of five black men in Tulsa, Okla. — used a racial slur on live television.
