    In the hot days of summer, the progressive revolution that took over cities and even the national government is frenziedly devouring itself. The media is pounding away at Hillary Clinton, not because it cares about her foundation’s dirty deals or the contents of her email server, but because it doesn’t trust her ideological commitment. If the media were sure of that, both stories would have been treated like Benghazi; mocked, ridiculed, falsely fact checked and then buried in a haunted Indian graveyard under the New York Times building at midnight. Instead the media pined for Elizabeth Warren. When the Native...

    Hold on. Courage, Matt, courage. Breathe. OK, I’m ready. This is it. I’m coming out. I want the world to know. I’m a black, lesbian platypus trapped in a white, straight guy’s body. This is my truth. It’s my experience. It’s how I identify. It’s my reality (actual reality notwithstanding). Transracial, transgender and transpecies lives matter (#TransLivesMatter), and I’m declaring myself an out and proud member of the LGBTTT community. Crazy, you say? Don’t judge me, hater.

Then when we learned of a Rachel Dolezal sex tape, I thought: okay, it wasn’t complete before, but now it is. Yet the story still wasn’t finished. Rachel Dolezal had not yet proclaimed herself to be a polysexual pervert: Rachel Dolezal, the former NAACP President accused of misrepresenting her race and masquerading as a black woman, revealed she is bisexual in an interview with NBC Nightly News. “I’m bisexual.

    Someday, we’ll recall these as the days of struggle, comrades, in pursuit of redistribution of heritage. After all, why should the Irish get all the blarney, or the Italians all the pasta? And don’t even get me started on the Swiss. On the other hand, if Rachel Dolezal’s motivation came from a deep-seated need to appropriate the claimed victimhood of others, maybe she no longer needs to fake her ethnicity any longer, since she’s become almost universally rejected for her own fakery. Spokane’s city council unanimously decided to end Dolezal’s association with the city, although the action comes in response...

    Fresh off a stinging courtroom defeat, the national NAACP leadership reveals how little it considers its legacy. They sued an actual black (biracial) man for “harming” its reputation for accurately calling them out on their radical support for abortion. But a white woman pretending to be black, who generated hate and bitterness over false “hate crimes” reports, who stole a full scholarship meant for an actual black American, who pretended to be a mother, who pretended to have a black father, who lied about nearly everything about herself was worth an immediate defense by the NAACP.

Dolezal did not deny her parents are white, that she was born white, or that she has changed how she looks at herself over the years in an interview on NBC's "Today" show. And she admitted not having corrected various published reports over the years labeling her as transracial, biracial and black. At the same time, Dolezal -- while admitting...

Exactly which production companies and which networks might be interested is unknown at this time, but considering the publicity she’s...

The woman who sparked a national debate on race has no black relatives dating back to 1671; in fact her family were entirely white including some who were Mormons. Archives show that Rachel’s ancestors came to the US from Europe and have no bloodlines linking them to slaves or Africa. Even a great grandmother who has almost identical features to Rachel was identified as white in two census documents. Our reporters commissioned Massachusetts-based genealogist...

The flames erupting in Ferguson are the fires burning in the hearts of mothers of black sons in this nation. We cry for the life nurtured inside us those nine months,...

The images, taken in Washington state in September 2012, show the civil rights activist posing on top of rocks as she flashes a pierced bellybutton beneath a short crocheted top. In another set of photos, she leans towards the camera in a floor-length purple gown while displaying her knee-length, blonde braids. The striking look is a far cry from the freckled-faced photos...

A better title would have been ‘The Slave Ship.” That’s the title that Romantic landscape painter J.M.W. Turner gave to his 1840 masterpiece, which hangs in the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. ... While Dolezal’s painting is not identical pixel for pixel, the style and content are unmistakably lifted from the Turner work. Unlike the Turner painting, which is priceless, Dolezal’s near-knockoff comes with a price: $5,100. Maybe a psychiatric evaluation wouldn’t be such a bad idea after all.

Her parents have said she has falsely portrayed herself as black for years though she is actually white. Dolezal sent out an email Sunday cancelling the meeting "due to the need to continue discussion with regional and national NAACP leaders." Some, however, questioned whether she had the power to do so.

    I's hard to think of a more bizarre story, or one more representative of contemporary America, than that of Rachel Dolezal. Dolezal is an academic and activist who represented herself as African American for many years, earning a degree in Africana studies, even ascending to the position of president of the Spokane, Wash., chapter of the NAACP. As police killings show, the African American community needs more change As police killings show, the African American community needs more change Dolezal's parents, however, have recently made matters uncomfortable for her, telling the media that she is in fact Caucasian and showing...

    The families of a victim and his killer displayed grief, forgiveness and redemption Thursday as a Spokane judge sent 17-year-old Kenan Adams-Kinard to prison for 20 years in the beating death of World War II veteran Delbert “Shorty” Belton. The 2013 murder garnered national media attention as much for Belton’s status as a war veteran as for the racial overtones: The two teens suspected of attacking and robbing him as he sat in his parked car outside the Eagles Lodge in north Spokane are black; Belton, who later died from the beating, is white. Demetruis Glenn, the other teen accused...

    Mike Boyer got his 15 minutes of fame when he became the first person in Spokane to buy recreational pot on Tuesday. On Wednesday Boyer posted his resume on Craigslist, saying Kodiak Security had fired him. Kodiak officials told the Spokesman-Review, though, that Boyer still had a job with the company.

    Two teenage boys are charged in the bloody beating of Delbert Belton outside a Spokane, Washington ice skating rink and investigators are now suggesting the soldier—who took a bullet in the Battle of Okinawa—tried to stop the apparent robbery. Police say that enraged the teens and turned their petty theft into full-blown murder as they continued to beat him into submission with ‘big, heavy flashlights.’ ‘Our information is that the individual fought back and that may have made this, you know, a worse situation,’ said Spokane Police Chief Frank Straub in a Monday press conference.
