    Chaunte Lee Ford, 27, is charged with third-degree DWI, collision with an unattended vehicle, careless driving, and interfering with a peace office for the Aug. 5 incident outside of the NE Palace Bar. Ford was allegedly “hostile to the officers” and made “obscene gestures and comments toward them.” When asked if she needed an ambulance, Ford yelled, "F--- you. I don't need an ambulance. F--- that and f--- you." She also made general anti-police statements such as, "F--- the police! I f---ing hate cops and I hate that I'm a cop! All you guys do is harass black people!" At...

    A Yale University employee is out of a job, and the school is out a window, after he used a broomstick to smash a stained-glass window he complained was racist. Until recently, Thomas Menafee worked as a dishwasher for Yale. But he says he grew enraged that, while working at Yale’s Calhoun College, he had to see a stained glass window which shows black laborers harvesting cotton. The window, he said, was an offensive portrayal of slavery, and so on June 13 he impulsively decided to eliminate it by force. “I took a broomstick, and it was kind of high,...
  • Newspeak Alert: The Word “Eskimo” Is Now Racist

    Control language and you control thought. That is why progressives have been erasing our language one word at a time, boxing us into an ever smaller corner of what they decide should be permissible. The latest word to be banished is “Eskimo.” The taxpayer-funded thought police at NPR explain that although the word comes from the Ojibwe language, it has a “controversial history.” That is, it could be tainted with Western culture: -People in many parts of the Arctic consider Eskimo a derogatory term because it was widely used by racist, non-native colonizers.- Anything used by the colonizers who brought...
  • Albuquerque activist group calls university’s official seal racist

    Some students at the University of New Mexico want the university to throw out the school’s official seal. They said it’s racist and hurtful to Native Americans and now they’re passing around a flyer with a doctored seal to make their point. The university has had two other similar seals before it. Because it’s mainly stamped on diplomas and other graduation papers, it has some students concerned. “This is the stamp that legitimizes it all,” sophomore Jennifer Marley said. “For people who don’t understand why the seal is offensive, it’s the depiction of a conquistador and a frontiersman and the...

    The multi-university Afrikan Black Coalition is calling for black people to engage in revolution and overthrow the Constitution, citing the need to “stop white people” in the “white supremacist world” of America. The Coalition goes on to declare that institutional racism (the same ‘evil’ the student protestors at the University of Missouri claimed to be combatting) can’t be overcome unless the Constitution is overthrown. “A Constitution written by only white men will never serve the interests Black [sic] people. The Constitution was written for the ruling class of white men which constructed whiteness to be more valuable than any other...

    A major national conference for teachers and school administrators starting on Saturday, October 10, in Baltimore will focus exclusively on race and racism, featuring workshops on “interrupting whiteness” in American schools, the “dominance of White supremacy” in society, “White privilege” enjoyed by Caucasian students, “white domination of thought,” and how to “decenter whiteness.” The conference, officially titled The National Summit for Courageous Conversation 2015, is organized by the Pacific Educational Group (PEG), a large and influential consulting firm hired by hundreds of school districts nationwide — often under pressure from the federal government — to address “racial gaps” in scholastic...

    Hoop skirts will go the way of Confederate uniforms as special-event attire for Greek organizations at the University of Georgia — into the past. The hoop skirt ban came after UGA Student Affairs administrators met Monday with some UGA fraternity and sorority leaders, including representatives of the UGA chapters of Sigma Alpha Epsilon and Kappa Alpha fraternities, both of which have deep roots in the Southern Confederacy. The ban comes a week after the University of Oklahoma expelled two SAE fraternity members and shut down the university’s SAE chapter because of a racist video made by members. In the video,...

    A student at Kalamazoo College has been attacked and labeled “homophobic” and "racist" by student government representatives because he wanted to facilitate a discussion about campus carry. In an audio recording exclusively obtained by Campus Reform, students at a Student Commission meeting—K-College’s student government—interrupted Alexander Ross, a sophomore political science major, as he requested that the students engage in a conversation about campus carry, a request he had been asking the Commission for five straight weeks. After his allotted time expired, Ross and his pro-Second Amendment advocacy were berated by the Kalamazoo student government. Another student commissioner at K-College, said...

One military official says using the word to describe ‘a person having origins in any of the black racial groups of Africa’ might be for people who prefer to refer to themselves this way. But another calls it ‘the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. What year is it again? Army regulations still allow for black soldiers to be labeled Negro — a term that faded in the late 1960s. The archaic policy was spelled out as recently as Oct. 22, when the...

Brown, who recently said that illegal immigrants from Mexico were "all welcome in California," praised his administration's immigration policies. He said that California is "setting the pace" on immigration laws and mentioned bills he signed that gave driver's licenses to illegal immigrants, made California a sanctuary state (Trust Act), and granted in-state tuition to illegal immigrants (CA DREAM Act).

    WASHINGTON – Errico Auricchio produced cheese with his family in Italy until he brought his trade to the United States more than 30 years ago. Now, the European Union is saying his cheese isn't authentic enough to carry a European name. As part of trade talks, the EU wants to ban the use of names like Parmesan, feta and Gorgonzola on cheese made in the United States. The argument is that the American-made cheeses are shadows of the original European varieties and cut into sales and identity of the European cheeses. Auricchio, president of Wisconsin-based BelGioioso Cheese Inc., says he...

Members of the group "Call 2 Action: Graduate Students of Color" organized the sit-in and said the mere act of correcting a black student's paper was “micro-aggression.” “A hostile campus climate has been the norm for Students of Color in this class throughout the quarter as our epistemological and methodological commitments have been repeatedly questioned by our classmates and our instructor,” the group told the college...

Reid argued that it’s not “race, poverty, gangs, or even video games and movies” that tie these shooting together. It’s access to guns. “These are obviously two...

The lawsuit stems from a letter submitted in January by New York City lawyer James H. Freeman on behalf the 10 contestants to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The letter cited ”cruel and inhumane” treatment, claiming that Idol‘s producers have only publicly disqualified 10 contestants in the show’s history, all of whom were black. Freeman also claimed that the show illegally dredged up arrest records to make the black contestants appear to be “violent criminals, liars and sexual...

I’m not saying that he had “little support” or “less support” than President Obama — who, I don’t think I need to remind you, is half-black. Romney, the official Republican presidential candidate as of last week, polled absolutely no support. Zero percent for Romney, 94 percent for Obama. (The rest, I presume, will be voting for me.) I’ll assume the poll is accurate because of the quality of the news organizations involved. Accurate...

    Maybe it's an accident, or maybe some insensitive punk slipped one by the honchos, but the Google start page today looks like a black man standing on a watermelon. Blacks and watermelons is a very old stereotype.Even worse, it is animated. Google Those wacky lefties at Google (90%plus donation to Democrats).

    Gabby Douglas just captured America's hearts with a stirring victory as women's gymnastics all-around gold medalist at the Summer Olympics in London. Despite this, George Stephanopoulos on ABC's This Week Sunday actually botched her name calling her Gabby Daniels (video follows with transcript and commentary): George Stephanopoulos Botches Olympics Sweetheart Gabby Douglas's Last Name - Daniels? GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: Overall medal count right now, neck and neck. Gold medals, US over China 27 to 25. That's on the gold medals. Tied in overall medals, 55 each with China. Van, let me go to you, your best moment of the week. VAN...
  • Liberal group calls Romney too white for blacks to like

    In advance of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s speech Wednesday to the NAACP, a liberal group headed by a former New York Times reporter and ex-Media Matter executive have produced a video “satire” that claims blacks don’t like Romney, who they dub so white he makes “Wonder Bread look like pumpernickel.” The YouTube from “The Message,” an online “media hub,” is described as a satirical video of Romney getting advice on what to say to the civil rights group. Or, as they said in a release, the video “lacerates Romney and his advisors as they prepare for his speech to...

    Commentary: You’re Going to Celebrate BHM With Fried Chicken, Really? Is Black History Month turning into a stereotypical holiday? I love Black History Month because it serves as a time to acknowledge the contributions of little-known Black inventors, learn the struggles of Black ancestors and celebrate the victories of how far Black people have come as a whole. Companies, schools, churches and organizations across the country organize events to pay tribute, but is there an appropriate way to honor Black History Month? After recent reports in the news, I’m thinking the answer to that question may be "yes." In a...

    This shocking video shows Memphis talk radio host Thaddeus Matthews insulting and humiliating Republican congressional candidate Charlotte Bergmann on air. Matthews later tells Bergmann to "get your stupid, ignorant ass out of my studio" and refuses to shake her hand because he doesn't want her "whiteness" to "rub off" on him.
  • ‘That’s Racist’ - The accusation becomes a punch line.

    'That's Racist' The accusation becomes a punch line. ‘That’s racist.” It’s a comedic catchphrase these days, popularized by an online clip from a 2005 TV show Wonder Showzen on MTV2. It’s not as iconic as Gary Coleman’s “What ’chu talkin’ ’bout, Willis?” or Fonzie’s “Ayyyyyy” or even Bart Simpson’s “Don’t have a cow, man.” But what it lacks in pedigree, it makes up for in ubiquity and social relevance. Across the country, it’s a staple of schoolyards, Internet discussion groups, Twitter, and sitcoms. For instance, when a character on NBC’s Parks and Recreation explains to a co-worker how to do...
  • Ronald Reagan: The 100-Year-Old Racist?

    Ronald Reagan "tortured" blacks. Tavis Smiley, the PBS television host, once said this about the former president. NBC's Bryant Gumbel and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman, among many others, consider Reagan a racist. "There they go again," as Reagan might have said. The economic lot for blacks and Hispanics improved far more than it did for whites after Reagan's steep tax cuts. In late 1982, Reagan's second year in office, the unemployment rate for blacks was 20.4 percent. By 1989, his last year, the black unemployment rate had fallen to 11.4 percent -- a 9 percent drop. In late...

    DES MOINES - Despite Democratic objections that it was a "solution in search of a problem," the Iowa House approved requiring Iowans to show a photo ID to vote. "This is a bill created to create a problem," Rep. Beth Wessel-Kroeschell, D-Ames, said before the House voted 60-40 to send the measure to the Senate. Floor manager Rep. Renee Schulte, R-Cedar Rapids, called the bill necessary to protect the integrity of elections and to make voting more uniform across the state. Now, election official may ask for a photo ID. HF 95 would remove that subjectivity by requiring everyone to...

      Here’s a federal job listing by way of Moonbattery. As you can see, there’s still time to apply: Over 200k just to separate the white males from the rest in order to contribute to a more colorblind society free from sexual discrimination? That sounds like a job I could handle — if I wasn’t a white guy. Sure the salary might seem high, but as you can see, the benefits are far inferior to those offered in the private sector. Just look at this skimpy list of bennies: BENEFITS: FHFA offers a wide array of benefits: 1. HEALTH INSURANCE...
