    Ferguson will hold municipal elections on April 7. The mayor and five of the six city councilpersons are white. Three are up for reelection. Since Michael Brown was gunned down by former Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson on August 9, the one loud refrain has repeatedly been how could a city where African-Americans make up the overwhelming majority of the population be policed by a nearly all-white police force, and governed by a nearly all-white city administration? The thought was that the Brown slaying angered and engaged so many thousands that it was almost a done deal. The first chance...
  • Obama: I'll Use Clemency Power 'More Aggressively'

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK) President Barack Obama plans to grant clemency to federal offenders "more aggressively" during the remainder of his presidency, he said in a sit-down interview with The Huffington Post on Friday. Obama has faced criticism for rarely using his power to grant pardons and commutations. In December, he commuted the sentences of eight federal drug offenders, including four who had been sentenced to life. That brought his total number of commutations to 18. Obama said he had granted clemency so infrequently because of problems in the Justice Department's Office of the Pardon Attorney. The former head of that office, who...

    Fanatics believe their opinions are unbiased and unassailable. Conservatives, who contemptuously ridicule everything Barack Obama, believe their opinions sacred and his ideas sacrilegious. They have not come to terms with the fact that a black person occupies the White House as president, and not as a cook. Many conservatives grudgingly admit that his Bloody Sunday speech in Selma was a great speech, but could not resist belittling it. He has been accused of fomenting strife, opening old wounds and politicizing the event. Bloody Sunday was politicized when the Congressional GOP leadership announced they would not attend. They were pandering to...
  • Why I didn't call the police when I saw two black boys with guns next door (Idiocy)

    MSN / The Guardian & Observer ^ | March 19, 2015 | Victoria Brown
    On the first day of winter’s thaw, I saw two teenage boys on the roof next door holding guns. I don’t know much about guns, except that they kill and that young black men holding them are likely to be killed. I called my husband, trying to keep panic out of my voice so as not alarm my own children. He looked out the window. “Jesus. Call the police”. After Michael Brown, John Crawford, Eric Garner, Tamir Rice - especially after Tamir - calling the police didn’t seem like the solution here. “Don’t you see who it is”? I told...

    "It's also interesting because I'm actually black, but you assumed otherwise," Jay Smooth told Nancy Giles. Starbucks' campaign to get people talking about race has already birthed a very public, very cringeworthy conversation about race. Jay Smooth, a radio DJ and video blogger, was on MSNBC's All In With Chris Hayes Tuesday night, discussing the coffee company's "Race Together" campaign with fellow guest Nancy Giles, a contributor to CBS Sunday Morning. As they discussed the efficacy of a campaign like Race Together — with Giles defending it and Smooth pushing back — Hayes played one of Smooth's most popular videos,...

    Dear Azealia Banks, I read about your interview with Playboy magazine where you apparently took off your clothes and talked about how much you hate white people. Just another day at the office for you, I suppose. I confess I didn’t read the whole exchange, though I’m sure it was packed with penetrating insight and searing self-reflection. I did notice, however, this portion: “I hate everything about this country. Like, I hate fat white Americans… All the people who are crunched into the middle of America, the real fat and meat of America, are these racist conservative white people who...

    Latino Americans – or Hispanics – occupy a stigmatized status in America alongside blacks. For some, that is cause for activism, social change, lobbying for legislative action, or preservation of their ethnic heritage. For others, it is a reason to deny their own heritage and abandon their genetic makeup. Sadly, the number of folks who choose the latter option seems to be growing. According to a recent Pew Research study, more than one million Americans who previously identified as Hispanic and “some other race” on the 2000 US Census checked Hispanic and white on the 2010 census form. While the...

    It was on a year-long walk retracing the path of slavery between Africa and the United States that Teegrey Iannuzzi says she finally woke up. She was taking part in the Interfaith Pilgrimage of the Middle Passage, a walk retracing the trans-Atlantic slave trade between South Africa and the American colonies. The trek began in 1998 and was organized by Leverett Buddhist Sister Clare Carter, who meant for the journey to unite people of various racial and religious backgrounds in a visceral understanding of slavery’s cost. Iannuzzi, now in her late 40s and living in Shutesbury, was already interested in...

Great, let's talk. But about what, exactly? About the racial attitudes we like to think are not quite so overt anymore? About other chapters of that fraternity and other fraternities at other universities that have engaged in similarly racist behavior without attracting the same national attention? About how, in the wake of the Oklahoma incident, online comment boards were filled with people defending the frat boys' free speech...

    Members of the tea party movement are “screw-loosers” who range from “sort of a generic racism” to “bald-faced racists,” and they tend to become further more racist the further the longer they associate with tea party ideas. Also, “tea partiers are not overly concerned about the economy,” love “gun rallies,” want power in the hands of white people and hate President Barack Obama because he “broke the white monopoly on the presidency.” Such was the message of a speaker on the first day of this year’s White Privilege Conference, currently happening at a posh hotel in downtown Louisville, Ky.

    In 1955, a study published in the sociological journal, “Social Problems,” found that most students in fraternities and sororities were more racist than their non-Greek classmates. That was 60 years ago, but it explains precisely the origin of the Oklahoma Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity’s racist chant last week about hanging Black people and not letting them in its organization. A culture of racism, euphemized as exclusivity, has existed from the beginning and, in fact, was part of the principles on which frats were created: no Blacks. To wit: SAE was founded at Alabama in 1856 in the “Deep South,” it...

Have we come a long ways simply because the President of the United States looks like us? Or have we arrived in the promised land spoken of by Martin Luther King Jr. simply because we can visit the upscale side of town, drive nice cars, live in nice houses, vote, write books and make six figures?

    An Illinois high school principal is defending his decision to exclude white students from a “Black Lives Matter” event held at his school. On February 27th, Oak Park and River Forest High School principal, Nathaniel Rouse, hosted a “Black Lives Matter” event exclusively for black students. The assembly was intended to culminate Black History Month with a discussion on race relations. Approximately 350 black individuals attended the event. When white students attempted to attend the assembly, however, they were denied entry. Parents who were upset over the school’s decision to exclude non-black students from the event voiced their opinion to...

    While there are countless critics who contend President Obama has not done enough for Black people, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach took a different, preposterous approach. The staunch anti-immigration advocate agreed with a caller on his radio show that said Obama would forgive African-Americans “accused of a crime, charged with a crime, is not going to be prosecuted, regardless of the crime,” based on his recent immigration action. Kobach, unfortunately, did not dispute the caller, named “Stu.” In fact, he added to the outlandish notion. “Well, it’s already happened more or less in the case of civil rights laws,”...

    Holder Frames Ferguson PD For Racism Using Bogus 'Disparate Impact' Stats 03/05/2015 Racial Politics: Unable to pin racism charges on Ferguson policeman Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown, Attorney General Eric Holder is using half-baked data to manufacture a case of racism against his entire police force. Holder's race-baiting civil rights crew combed through several years of Ferguson Police Department data on traffic stops, searches and arrests and "found a pattern of racial disparities in Ferguson's police activities." "African Americans are overrepresented in FPD's vehicular stops" and victims of "racial bias," Holder concludes in his report. He...

He didn’t grow up like we grew up.’” “How did you grow up, Giuliani?” asked Farrakhan. “A privileged cracker?” After that line got enormous applause, he added: “Or I should say, a...

    It's not about being a good person because racism makes you feel bad. At a recent Black Lives Matter rally, I saw a middle-aged woman come nervously to the microphone. She began to speak about her white privilege. While she chided herself for past wrongs and oversights, she said next to nothing about the events that called the rally forth: the police killings of innocent black women and men, and the failure of the justice system to hold the killers accountable. Perhaps she didn't address these issues because she feared that in doing so, she would come across as a...

    Black people are too intent on holding on to wrongdoings from the past. Therefore, they keep blaming someone else for their problems.The list of wrongs done to Black people throughout their history in the U.S. that are still resonating in their lives today is extensive and extremely disturbing. As a result of hundreds of years of subjugation in an oppressive, racist system, Black households have one-tenth the wealth of white households in this country.

    When we look back on what happened in Ferguson, Mo., in 2014, it will be easy to think of it as yet one more episode of black rage ignited by yet another police killing of an unarmed African-American male. But that has it precisely backward. What we've actually seen is the latest outbreak of white rage. Sure, it is cloaked in the niceties of law and order, but it is rage nonetheless. Protests and looting naturally capture attention. But the real rage smolders in meetings where officials redraw precincts to dilute African-American voting strength or seek to slash the government...

    Smoke and fire, sirens blaring, horns honking, a sudden hail of bullets. This is what passes for the American dialogue on race and justice. It's hidden until it explodes. "By 10 p.m.," the Wall Street Journal informed us, "a St. Louis County Police squad car burned just down the street from the Ferguson Police Department, with spare ammunition 'cooking off' or exploding in the car." Those who want to shake their heads in disgust can do so. American institutional racism conceals itself so neatly from those who prefer not to see it and, of course, aren't victimized by it. And...

    The FBI has released its latest statistics on Hate Crimes in America and the numbers will certainly be ignored by the media. The first statistic that jumps off the page when reviewing the Bureau’s Uniform Crime Report Hate Crime Statistics, 2013 is that claims that America is a hate filled nation are wishful thinking lies. The total number of “hate crimes” reported nationwide in 2013 was, at 5928, not even 6000! For a population of approximately 315 million people this number is low enough to support a claim that Hate Crimes don’t happen in our polyglot nation. Nevertheless, of course...

    Azealia Banks is ready to end her music career to take on a new mission – tracking down the descendants of slave traders and making them pay reparations. The 23-year-old rapper revealed her new passion after posting an article about the DeWolf family, who traded slaves from 1769 through 1820. “I wonder where the descendants of the ‘DeWolf’ family are today. they should all have their houses burned and their finances seized,” Azealia tweeted. “This generation of young black kids needs to make a CONCERTED effort to seek out living descendants of major slave trading families. They Owe us Money.”(continued)

    Baltimore — More than 500 protesters marched from Empowerment Temple Church on Primrose Avenue north on Reisterstown Road to Reisterstown Road Plaza for "Black Lives Matter Sunday." On Reisterstown Road, near the entrance to the shopping center, the protesters formed a circle and many laid down to stage a die-in to show solidarity with Michael Brown.CHICAGO — Everyone understands that words matter. Observers of my writing know that I hopscotch my way through racial and ethnic labels quite a bit, using the conventions of my source materials whenever possible so as to not tinge my point with an easily misperceived...

    The Daily Caller ^ | December 23, 2014 | Alex Griswold, media reporter
    The New York City group that called for “dead cops” in a widely circulated video is most likely– no joke — the Trayvon Martin Organizing Committee (TMOC). In a piece outing “The Monsters Who Screamed For Dead Cops,” The Daily Beast’s Jacob Siegel cites a “web of circumstantial ties” to the group. The man who shot the disturbing video — showing marchers chanting, “What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want them? Now!” — told Siegel that he saw the group marching with signs reading “No Cops, No Prison.” Siegel produces evidence from Instagram that the TMOC marched...

    Doing its part to contribute to the racial divisiveness ripping through the country, radical, social justice educator group Rethinking Schools has posted on its website an article that instructs how to teach the United States history of “white men killing unarmed black boys and men with little to no consequence.” Renee Watson’s article “Happening Yesterday, Happened Tomorrow,” is subtitled, “Teaching the ongoing murders of black men.” Rethinking Schools’ website states the piece is “especially urgent given the decision of the grand jury not to indict Officer Darren Wilson in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown, and the national protests in...

    New population projections released by the U.S. Census Bureau show that whites will become a “minority” by 2044, replaced by a “majority” of minority groups, mostly blacks and Hispanics.The new projections, analyzed in a Brookings Institution report, show the huge rise of Hispanics, projected to make up 25.1 percent of the U.S. population in 2044, double African-Americans.According to the analysis, the white will make up 49.7 percent of the country in 2044, minorities the rest. What’s more, by 2060, whites will account for just 44 percent of the country.Brookings attributed the shift to a “majority minority nation” this way:— The...

    Sybrina Fulton, the mother of Trayvon Martin, says whites do not understand the protests about the deaths of young black men. CNN's Anderson Cooper cited polls that reveal white people do not view the issue the same way as black people. "It's not happening to them, so they don't quite get it," Fulton told Cooper in an interview that aired Friday on CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360." "They don't quite understand. They think that it's a small group of African-Americans that's complaining: 'Oh, what are they complaining about now?'" Cooper asked: "You hear that from people?" "Oh yeah," Fulton said. "The...

A conversation about race.JUDNICK: I feel like this is just an extension of the our “favorite” iMessage topic but in the light of the recent grand jury events with Mike Brown and Eric Garner (not to mention the promise of more to come with Tamir Rice and the others they’ve shot to death) I’ve been reminding friends that they do not have to answer to white people about their feelings.

    A few hours after demonstrators in their ongoing Black Lives Matter protest unsuccessfully attempted to disrupt a professional basketball game in Brooklyn attended by the British Prince William and his wife Kate, a black man with a large knife entered a synagogue/study hall a few miles away, yelling, "Kill the Jews!"  The large building complex in Brooklyn's Crown Heights neighborhood is the headquarters of a large religious Jewish movement renowned for its outreach to Jews around the world and is open all day, all night for those who want to study and/or pray. Carrying out his threat, he slashed...

    With the national uproar surrounding the unpunished police killings of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, some white Americans say they are rethinking the lack of diversity in their lives—and the work they need to do to help create social change that lasts. Take Philadelphia artist Katherine Fritz. In her attempt to understand events in Ferguson, she stumbled upon a 2013 national survey finding that white American social circles tend to be 91 percent white. Intrigued, she tested this finding in her own life. A self-described liberal who uses the term “micro-aggressions,” she was surprised to find that her social circle...

    On its surface, the recently released music video produced by the PAC Stand with Hillary, not quite a formal part of Hillary Clinton’s not quite announced campaign for the Democratic nomination in 2016, is little more than further evidence of the difficulty Hillary Clinton may encounter turning a sterling resume and impressive intellect into a strong campaign. Frank Bruni, writing in Sunday’s New York Times, suggests that the video “positions [Hillary Clinton] first and foremost as all woman. The references are incessant,” and is part of an effort by Clinton strategists to position their candidate as the woman’s candidate. Leaving...
