    Most black Americans do not think Confederate statues should be removed because they are offensive, a Marist poll released Thursday found. Forty-four percent of African Americans believe the Confederate statues should stay in place, while 11 percent said they’re unsure. The remaining 40 percent of African Americans polled said the statues should be removed. Those surveyed were asked whether statues “honoring leaders of the Confederacy” should “remain as a historical symbol” or “be removed because they are offensive to some people,” or whether the respondent is unsure. NPR and PBS News Hour conducted the Marist poll Monday and Tuesday, following a...

    Steve Damron paced back and forth in front of the old courthouse building in Brooksville Friday. On his shoulder, Damron carried a large Confederate battle flag as he stood in front of a Confederate statue that was first put up in Brooksville in 1916. “I’m here to protect history. I’m here to protect these monuments,” said Damron As he spoke, car after car drove by honking, waving and shouting support for Damron’s efforts. Tampa businessmen may have bonded together on Thursday to raise more than $140,000 dollars to take down a Confederate memorial, but this is Brooksville and things are...
  • Leader Of Boston Group Calls To Rename Faneuil Hall

    BOSTON (CBS) — How would you feel if Faneuil Hall was renamed? Boston religious leaders gathered on Wednesday at the historic building to condemn the violence in Charlottesville. That is when Kevin Peterson, founder of the New Democracy Coalition, suggested it. “Here in this very place on this very ground, we see an embarrassment to the community of color in Boston, an embarrassment to white people of good mind and good spirit in Boston because this place is named after a man who engaged in the sale of human flesh and we should be quite frankly embarrassed by that. I’ve...

    Netflix has released a trailer for it’s new show ‘Dear White People’ and the show appears to look like a giant white shaming series. What Netflix is doing is racist, divisive, disgusting, and really just sad. People need to think long and hard if they want their hard earned money going to a company that promotes racial division and prejudice. Watch the trailer below:

    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...

  • Yale Employee Smashes Historic Stained Glass Window Because ‘It’s 2016’

    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...

    Jim Boggess, whose "White History Month" sign at his New Jersey deli ignited a firestorm, has posted a new placard. This one says: "Forced Out of Business." And he's also created a GoFundMe page pleading for money from strangers. On the crowd-sourcing site, Boggess writes,"On march 1st, I hung a sign in my deli window saying, 'Celebrate your white heritage in March, White History Month". . . Then the bottom dropped out and customers were no longer coming into my deli." Saying he was forced to close his dying business, Boggess bemoans his fate and says he lost "my American...

    The Franklin County Speedway in Callaway is known for mud bogging and even more so for its summer-time racing. Though the stands are empty now, this Sunday the owner hopes for a big crowd. Whitey Taylor, the track owner, is trying a new marketing strategy: African-Americans will get in free of charge. “Sunday afternoon at 3 p.m., all African-Americans; black people, we're going to invite them to come down,” said Taylor. He's doing this in hopes of attracting more African-Americans to the race track. “We have families that come here; they love the place. But I want to open this...

    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...
