    A race activist referred to a historically black college’s marching band as “coons” for playing at President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration. Tariq Nasheed, a black writer and activist, used a racist trope to describe Talladega College’s marching band. “So the HBCU [historically black colleges and universities] Talladega College Marching Band has agreed to perform at the Trump inauguration…that’s interesting,” Nasheed wrote, adding a picture of a group of raccoons playing instruments.

    CNN's Marc Lamont Hill referred to Trump diversity team member Bruce LeVell as a part of a group of "mediocre Negroes" who met with the president-elect. The characterization, which includes Pastor Darryl Scott and television host and comedian Steve Harvey, came during a panel discussion with host Don Lemon on "CNN Tonight" on Monday. “They (the Trump transition team) keep bringing up comedians and and actors athletes to represent black interests. It’s demeaning, it’s disrespectful, and it’s condescending,” Hill argued. “Bring some people up there with expertise, Donald Trump, don’t just bring up people to entertain.”

    It’s finally happened. Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) has smacked a Twitter troll into last week. In response to being called a “house n***a,” a disparaging term routinely used by the left to mock black conservatives, Scott fired back with a one-word response. Ouch. The racially insensitive tweet was ultimately deleted — and then the account was too. Some of the Twitter reactions are gold snip As the first black Republican senator since Reconstruction, Scott has had to put up with more than his fair share of racial jabs from his liberal critics. Clearly, he's figured out how to handle it...

Shaw will also be required to undergo sensitivity training, according to the NHL. The suspension means Shaw will miss Game 5 of the team's series against the Blues, where they are facing elimination.

    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...

    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. John Wooten, the head of the Fritz Pollard Alliance, which monitors diversity in the league, told ESPN that he thinks the automatic fifteen-yard penalty should apply to first-time offenders, while second infractions should be punished with ejection. "I will be totally shocked if the competition committee does not uphold us on what we're trying to do," Wooten said. "We want this word to be policed from the parking lot to the...

    The head of the Fritz Pollard Alliance, which monitors diversity in the NFL, expects the league to institute a rule where players would be penalized 15 yards for using the N-word on the field. John Wooten, the head of the Fritz Pollard Alliance, anticipates that the NFL's competition committee will enact the rule at the owners' meeting next month. "We did talk about it, I'm sure that you saw near the end of the year that Fritz Pollard (Alliance) came out very strong with the message that the league needs to do something about the language on the field," said...

    The NFL could be set for a radical rule change. The new penalty, which will be automatic 15-yards if a player uses the N-word, is set to be introduced during the league’s owner’s meetings in March, according to a CBS Sports report. John Wooten, who heads up the Fritz Pollard Alliance which pays attention to diversity in the NFL, says he expects the NFL’s competition committee to suggest creating a rule penalizing players who use the N-word. The rule would also include the potential for players to get ejected from the game, if they use the word a second time....
  • Media too quick to label Texas Tech fan a racist

    Last Saturday, Marcus Smart, a 19-year-old Oklahoma State player, shoved a fan (as in perfect attendance fanatic) named Jeff Orr, a 52-year-old who apparently chooses to devote his time and money to closely following Texas Tech basketball, which is played by kids. 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.

    The mayor of Houston, Texas, Annise Parker, is once again attacking  'Duck Dynasty' star Phil Robertson by calling him a “wingnut” and “completely irrelevant.” Mayor Parker is one of the few openly gay mayors in the country. Why Mayor Parker thinks anyone cares what her opinion is of the Louisiana TV star is another question, but Mayor Parker made the comments on Lone Star Q, a website that focuses on the gay scene in Texas. I have never watched ‘Duck Dynasty,’ so I don’t think about it much at all. I’ve been a gay community activist since the mid-70s. It...

    <p>There will be no trademark for “Redskins Hog Rinds,” a bad omen for the Washington Redskins in the legal battle over their name. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has rejected a request from a company to sell pork rinds using the word “Redskins” because it deemed the term to be “derogatory slang.”</p>

    A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!” “I’m walking down some block by myself and then the next thing I know, I’m surrounded by a group of Hasidic Jewish men and they’re attacking me,”...
