    Video: White man begging for mercy viciously beaten by black mob In Charlotte Daily Wire September 22, 2016 As rioting continues in Charlotte, North Carolina, supposedly over the shooting of armed black man Keith Lamont Hill by a black police officer, video has now emerged reportedly showing some of the roving rioters beating a white man in a parking lot as he begs to be left alone. The rioters kick and punch the man; at one point seven men are in a circle around the prone man, pummeling him. The rioters continue to stomp at his head and neck as...

    Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton vows she’ll tackle the racism in the nation’s law enforcement system. “We gotta tackle the systemic racism, this horrible shooting again, how many times do we have to see this in our country?” she said in an appearance on the Steve Harvey show. Clinton was specifically referring to the police shooting of Terence Crutcher in Tulsa, Oklahoma, saying he had his “hands in the air” when he was killed. “This is unbearable and it needs to be intolerable,” she said. Clinton told Harvey that if the African-American community came out and voted for her, she...

    Blacks kill other blacks, push drugs, rape and lie because white Americans have made them do it, Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam, told a packed and enthusiastic audience at a church in Washington, D.C., Sept. 18. During the hour-and-a-half address at Union Temple Baptist Church, Farrakhan said the idea that the white man is responsible for the sins of black people did not originate with him, but with his predecessor, Elijah Muhammad – whom he holds up as the messiah who will one day return to earth on a vehicle like a spaceship. According to Farrakhan, Muhammad...

    A national poll out Thursday shows Hillary Clinton ahead of Donald Trump by double-digits. The poll also breaks down support by religion and finds that white Protestants are Trump’s most supportive demographic. The Public Religion Research Institute found that Clinton leads nationwide among registered voters with 48 percent, Trump follows with 35 percent and two percent backed Libertarian Gary Johnson. This poll, unlike others, broke down support for each candidate by registered voters’ religious preferences. Trump’s support is strongest among white evangelical Protestants. Sixty-two percent of them back Trump and 23 percent support Clinton. Trump also leads among white mainline...

    The State University of New York at Binghamton (SUNY-Binghamton) is offering a training class titled “StopWhitePeople2k16,” to instruct residential assistants (RAs) on how to deal with “uneducated” people who don’t believe in ideas like white privilege. The class is just one of several available to RAs at the school, and was discovered by the Binghamton Review, a student newspaper. Residential assistants are students who agree to assist with overseeing and monitoring residential life in return for receiving a free room from the school. Apparently, though, Binghamton RAs also have the responsibility of “stopping” white people. “The premise of this session...

The board is displayed in the Plemmons Student Union building, which ASU calls “the centerpiece of the Appalachian campus.” The board contains various different posters that condemn white, male, cisgender, heterosexual, Christian, and able-bodied persons who are unaware of their inherent societal privilege.

    "White Christian America is dying," proclaims the headline on a Monkey Cage blogpost by the perceptive political scientist John Sides. Like many headlines, it's an exaggeration of the thrust of the article that follows, which is an interview with Robert Jones, head of the Public Religion Research Institute, on his new book The End of White Christian America, based on PRRI and other research on religious beliefs and practices of Americans. Sides's questions and Jones's answers are pretty much neutral in tone, but many readers will detect a tone of triumphalism in the book's title and in the thrust of...

Pool says he took it as a sign locals were angry but didn’t assume that meant it was unsafe for him to continue to cover events. “Things started to get really tense...

    A new website allows non-white people to ask for and receive “reparations” from white people, more often than not in the form of a financial windfall: free laptops, tuition for Ivy League schools, an engagement ring and credit assistance are a few examples of reparations requested, offered or already paid out on the site. Reparations.me, founded by a black woman named Natasha Marin, has a Craigslist-like layout where non-white people post their requests for reparations from white people. White people can fulfill requests as well as post their own offers of reparations.

    And in their rush to condemn Trump, are journalists betraying their values? Glenn Greenwald says yes to both. The release of hacked Democratic National Committee emails last week was followed on Wednesday by Donald Trump’s invitation to Russia to find and release Hillary Clinton’s missing emails. Trump has since claimed that he was being “sarcastic,” but some believe that he is all too happy to rely on hacked materials to further his campaign for the White House—and doesn’t appreciate the national security implications of Russian intelligence’s alleged breach of DNC servers. Others believe that Trump’s more isolationist foreign policy ideas,...

    Prepare to be mindblown. A black dude is going to tell you why the GOP’s winning strategy is to focus like a laser on the white vote. One key result of the increased polarization happening in America under President Obama is that Republicans have a chance to decisively capture the white vote in a historic fashion. In fact, the key to a Trump victory will be the white vote, not the Hispanic vote, the black vote, or any other vote. Why? For one, the Democratic Party has already lost the white vote, and lost it big. Mitt Romney won the...

For blacks, the answer is clear: 65% say “it is a lot more difficult to be black in this country than it is to be white.” Fewer than half as many whites (27%) agree. The racial gap in perceptions of white advantages is even starker: 62% of blacks say “white people benefit a great deal from advantages in society that black people do not have.” Just...

    NEW YORK (AP) -- Since the birth of the Black Lives Matter movement three years ago, many white Americans have wrestled with how to respond. Some chose racist-tinged ridicule. Others, by word or deed, sought to show solidarity as blacks protested the deaths of fellow blacks in encounters with police. Still others, untouched personally, watched from a distance in silence. This past week, as graphic videos portrayed two more such deaths and five police officers were slain at a march in Dallas protesting the killings, whites have joined blacks in forceful calls for unity that cut across color lines.

Not true, says Cohn. Long-term it’s true that a candidate who appeals almost exclusively to whites is a sure loser in a national election, but there’s good reason to think that the national exit polls in 2012 understated how many white working-class voters showed up to vote that year —...

Among African Americans, Hispanics and even the oldest white Americans, death rates have continued to fall. But for white women in what should be the prime of their lives, death rates have spiked upward. In one of the hardest-hit groups — rural white women in their late 40s — the death rate...
  • On Slavery, Colonialism and Reparations

    The White race has over many centuries unleashed untold mayhem on black people; but these crimes against humanity are glossed over while the world champions the causes of myriad peoples from the Jews to the Armenians. What reason could be advanced for such gross injustice other than the very racism that led to the perpetration of these crimes in the first place. The world and her jaundiced multilateral organisations can try as they might to divert the world’s attention from these ugly historical facts; but like a cork being pushed deep into the water, these truths will continue to float...
  • Obama Administration Sticking it to Whitey

    Is the Obama administration, or at least some officials in it, hostile toward whites? This is certainly an awkward, publicly unspeakable question -- and answering it is exceptionally difficult. Not easy to discern the motives of countless Washington bureaucrats.  Nevertheless, recent events outside of Baltimore, MD suggest that enmity toward whites does afflict some Obama administrators and our proof, though short of the smoking gun standard, is probably as good as it gets.  In a nutshell, thanks to Washington’s money and political pressure, thousands of poor blacks will now be re-located from Baltimore’s slums to upgraded housing in the surrounding,...
  • It's time to talk about 'black privilege'

    Here's some good news for all you black folks complaining about racism in America. You don't know how good you have it. At least that's the message I heard during one of the strangest conversations I've ever had about race. I was talking about the concept of white privilege -- the belief that being white comes with unearned advantages and everyday perks that its recipients are often unaware of. I asked a white retiree if he believed in the existence of white privilege. He said no, but there was another type of privilege he wanted to talk about: "Black privilege."...

    Seattle Weekly News ^ | March 15, 2016 | Daniel Person, news editor
    Earlier this year, Bernie Sanders was asked whether he would support reparations for slavery in America. His answer, more or less, was no. And yet the fact that a serious presidential candidate addressed reparations speaks to the idea’s recent resurgence. In Seattle, reparations have found a champion in Anne Hirsch, a certified midwife and member of the Uhuru Solidarity Movement, an organization of white people who work under the leadership of the African People’s Socialist Party. We spoke with Hirsch about the growing momentum behind reparations. SW: Why do you feel it is important for white Americans to engage in...

    Ann Coulter comments on Donald Trump's interview this week with Wisconsin radio host Charlie Sykes and the myth of the media backing Donald Trump: "I've been right from the beginning. Try to find me on TV. I'm what's known as a Trump supporter. Banned." [relevant portion beginning around 11:00] ANN COULTER: I don't think [Rubio voters] have [smoothly transitioned into supporting Cruz]. Not the actual voters... Everyone keeps assuming, as they did with Romney. Any vote that is not for Donald Trump must be, I hate Donald Trump with the burning passion of 1,000 suns... That hasn't been true. This...

    Gregory Alfred, 25, told police he set out to find white people to slice back on Mar. 10 because he blamed them and “the system” for preventing him from freely smoking weed, sources said. The slasher chose to take out his anger on 53-year-old Janina Popko, and cut her across the neck as she was walking near the corner of Beverly and Rugby roads that morning in Ditmas Park, sources said. “He’s just a sick person,” Popko told The Post on Tuesday. “I’m very lucky to be okay. I am still shaky.” “I never was racial. I grew up in...

    White men narrowly backed Hillary Clinton in her 2008 race for president, but they are resisting her candidacy this time around in major battleground states, rattling some Democrats about her general-election strategy. While Mrs. Clinton swept the five major primaries on Tuesday, she lost white men in all of them, and by double-digit margins in Missouri, North Carolina and Ohio, exit polls showed — a sharp turnabout from 2008, when she won double-digit victories among white male voters in all three states. She also performed poorly on Tuesday with independents, who have never been among her core supporters. But white...

    People who refuse to vote for Hillary Clinton on principle may be able to ride out the storm of a Republican administration. Many of us can't As it becomes ever more likely that Hillary Clinton will win the Democratic nomination, a host of people have announced that they either won't vote for Clinton, or won't vote at all, if Bernie Sanders isn't the candidate on the ballot. I believe there's a self-righteousness about this that only people with a certain level of privilege can afford to have. Among them is the author of the recent Huffington Post column, "The Problem...

    Bernie Sanders, the Senator representing the socialist paradise of Vermont, has apparently never seen a poor white person. This is understandable since about 1% of the state's population is black. But Sanders considers himself an expert on the racial divide in poverty. And at last night's debate with Hillary Clinton, the Senator expounded on his theories of race and poverty. Daily Caller: During the CNN Democratic debate Thursday night Sen. Bernie Sanders claimed that if someone was white they don’t know what it’s like to be poor or live in a ghetto. “When you’re white you don’t know what...

    Bernie Sanders Doesn't Care About Poor White People in Vermont March 7, 2016 Daniel Greenfield Bernie Sanders has no idea that poor white people exist. So much for the whole Socialist "fighting for the poor" routine. "When you are white, you don’t know what it’s like to be living in a ghetto, you don’t know what it’s like to be poor," Bernie Sanders said at the Flint debate. While Bernie Sanders may not encounter them in his rallies at college towns, plenty of poor white people exist. And the situation has actually become critical in some parts of the country...
