  • More than 30 ‘White Student Union’ pages created on Facebook in last week

    The College Fix ^ | November 23, 2015 | Jason Weaver, University of Michigan
    More than 30 “White Student Union” pages have recently sprung up over the last several days on Facebook, pages that affiliate themselves with various universities around the nation. The creation of an “Illini White Student Union” Facebook page that surfaced Nov. 18 in response to a “Black Student Solidarity Rally” at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign gained national attention, but apparently it’s just the tip of the iceberg. Over the last week, at least 33 other “White Student Union” pages have appeared on Facebook, according to research conducted Sunday by The College Fix. Notably, “White Student Union” Facebook pages...
  • Obama collecting personal data for a secret race database

    A key part of President Obama’s legacy will be the fed’s unprecedented collection of sensitive data on Americans by race. The government is prying into our most personal information at the most local levels, all for the purpose of “racial and economic justice.” Unbeknown to most Americans, Obama’s racial bean counters are furiously mining data on their health, home loans, credit cards, places of work, neighborhoods, even how their kids are disciplined in school — all to document “inequalities” between minorities and whites.

    Update: Campus spokeswoman Robin Kaler said the University will continue to work with Facebook to have the Illini White Student Union page removed from the site. “It is disturbing and cowardly that someone would create an anonymous and senseless social media page specifically designed to intimidate others, including and especially our students. When we became aware of the page, we immediately contacted Facebook and requested that it be removed," Kaler said in an email. "Facebook has been responsive to our requests, but the page continues to be reposted. We are continuing to work with Facebook to address this matter. We...
  • Sen. Sherrod Brown: Mostly “White Males” Who Have Committed Terrorism In U.S. Since 9/11

    “They are generally white males, who have shot up people in movie theaters and schools. Those are terrorist attacks, they’re just different kinds of terrorists.” (AUDIO-AT-LINK)Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown says most terrorist attacks in the country since the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks have been committed by “generally white males.” “I think most of us recognize, we’re concerned but we also know that we trust the FBI and our security forces to do this right,” the senator from Ohio said on WAKR radio on Thursday morning. “Since the beginning of the Bush administration when we were attacked, September 11th, we’ve not...

    Obesity is still rising among American adults, despite more than a decade of public-awareness campaigns and other efforts to get people to watch their weight, and women have now overtaken men in the obese category, new government research shows. For the past several years, experts thought the nation's alarming, decades-long rise in obesity had leveled off. But the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in a report Thursday that the obesity rate has climbed to nearly 38 percent of adults, up from 32 percent about a decade earlier.

    Daily Journal/WaPo ^ | 11/3/2015 | Lenny Bernstein and Joel Achenbach
    A large segment of white middle-aged Americans has suffered a startling rise in its death rate since 1999, reversing decades of progress, according to a new review of statistics published Monday. The mortality rate for white men and women between the ages of 45 and 54 with less than a college education increased by half a percent per year between 1999 and 2013, most likely because of problems with legal and illegal drugs, alcohol, and suicide, according to the study released in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.... The rising death rate was accompanied by a parallel increase...

    Something startling is happening to middle-aged white Americans. Unlike every other age group, unlike every other racial and ethnic group, unlike their counterparts in other rich countries, death rates in this group have been rising, not falling. That finding was reported Monday by two Princeton economists, Angus Deaton, who last month won the 2015 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Science, and Anne Case. Analyzing health and mortality data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and from other sources, they concluded that rising annual death rates among this group are being driven not by the big killers like heart...

    Rachel Dolezal has finally admitted that she’s white. The disgraced former president of the Spokane chapter of the NAACP acknowledged her racial background during an intense interview on Fox’s “The Real” on Monday. “I acknowledge that I was biologically born white to white parents, but I identify as black,” Dolezal said at the conclusion of an intense round of questioning from the show’s all-minority, all-female panel. The 37-year-old civil rights activist made national headlines in June when it was revealed that she had falsely claimed to be black for years. Dolezal’s white parents, who live in Montana, told reporters at...

    White South Africans are in grave danger; there may be a solution. Things are very bad in South Africa. When the scourge of apartheid was finally smashed to pieces in 1994, the country seemed to have a bright future ahead of it. Eight years later, in 2002, 60 percent of South Africans said life had been better under apartheid. Hard to believe — but that's how bad things were in 2002. And now they're even worse. When apartheid ended, the life expectancy in South Africa was 64, the same as in Turkey and Russia. Now it's 56, the same as...

    Despite President Obama's two election victories, the nation has become increasingly racially divided in its politics and "tribal" in its voting patterns, according to the president's election pollster. "We've come a long way in a lot of different ways around race in this country, but if you look at our voting patterns, we're as segregated in how we vote today as we were 40-some years ago," said Cornell Belcher, president of Brilliant Corners Research & Strategies and a Harvard University fellow...

Glancing at the person opposite on the Tube the other day, I thought if only I could be that colour. He was in his late thirties, maybe, south Asian, maybe Sri-Lankan; and his skin was that beautiful golden brown that whispers that this is how humans were supposed to look.

    The Washington Examiner ^ | October 12, 2015 | Dan Hannan
    Last week, the "welfare and diversity officer" at Goldsmiths College in London was charged with sending an offensive message. Bahar Mustafa, 28, had posted a Tweet with the hashtag #KillAllWhiteMen. As so often, the police couldn't tell the difference between between a repugnant remark and an incitement to violence, and Ms. Mustafa will appear before magistrates next month. Now Ms. Mustafa comes across as a pretty unsympathetic character. She caused a fuss earlier this year when she banned men and white women from a student union event. "If you've been invited and you're a man and/or white PLEASE DON'T COME,"...

    If Americas 58th presidential election validates Ted Cruzs audacious base plus strategy, he will have refuted assumptions about the importance of independent swing voters and the inertia of many missing voters. Critics say his plan for pursuing the Republican nomination precludes winning the presidency. Jason Johnson, Cruzs chief strategist, responds: Im working backward from Election Day, because Cruzs plan for winning the necessary 1,236 convention delegates is an extrapolation from his strategy for winning 270 electoral votes. All presidential campaigns aspire to favorably change the composition of the electorate. Cruz aims to substantially reconfigure the electorate as it has recently...

    There are plenty of gun control laws in America, but the President isn't enforcing them. Maybe that's because the illegal guns are used by blacks to kill blacks. After the mass shooting at a community college in Oregon, President Barack Obama once again took the opportunity to lecture us Americans with righteous indignation about guns in America. Somehow this has become routine. The reporting is routine. My response here at this podium ends up being routine. The conversation in the aftermath of it. Weve become numb to this.

The videos, WSB said, "are filled with profanity and hate for white people." Nedd also called for activists to "take over" police stations. In one video removed by YouTube, she is seen issuing threats against white people, declaring "open season" on "crackas," a racist term referring to whites.

Tuesday afternoons conversation, The Intersection Between Education and Justice, was moderated by Bomboka and Bowdoin...

    Summer is over. And Donald Trump is -- still -- at the top of the 2016 Republican primary field. That makes lots and lots of Republicans with an eye on winning the White House in 2016 (or even 2020) very, very nervous. That unease -- and its origins -- are explained brilliantly in this paragraph, taken from a broader piece entitled "The GOP is Killing Itself," by former Bush administration official Pete Wehner: The message being sent to voters is this: The Republican Party is led by people who are profoundly uncomfortable with the changing (and inevitable) demographic nature of...

Recently, he even complained that Baltimore has been set back 35 years in one night because the police werent allowed to protect people. We need law and...

Obamas White House Science Advisor John Holdren later elaborated, We need to de-develop the United States to bring our economic system into line with the realities of ecology and the global resource situation. The so-called Clean Power Plan proposed by Obamas EPA is well-designed to do precisely that -- de-develop the United States.

    An optimist would say the Black Lives Matter movement is working. Even if there were no other signs of progress, the incessant, contorted attacks the movement now faces from the right would be evidence enough. Only a movement thats making inroads would draw such ire and condemnation.

On Fox News, Black Lives Matter is the new Benghazi, the newest favorite target of the panoply of conservative commentators and conservative...

    Is the white vote returning to American politics? Four recent national polls all confirm what is likely to be the galvanizing force of the GOP presidential primary season at least through next spring and what is almost certainly behind Donald Trump's "Make America Great Again" surge: an effort to bring disaffected white voters back to voting booths. Nearly every political and social scientist in America has predicted for years that demographics are shifting inexorably against the Republican Party nationally -- that growing numbers of Hispanic and Millennial voters will join black voters in keeping the GOP from capturing the White...

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump clearly prides himself in shunning focus-group research. He refuses big campaign donations that he asserts make his opponents beholden to special interests. He seems to target no specific constituency. Many pollsters remain puzzled by Trumps political appeal. Republican support for Donald Trump just continues to grow, said Patrick Murray, director of Monmouth Polling after its August survey, with no clear sense of who his constituency really is. Yet a constituency is emerging. Trumps strongest supporters, roughly a quarter of Republican voters across the polls, are not dissuaded by any increased media scrutiny of their candidate....

    Sunday marked the one-year anniversary of Michael Brown's death, an unarmed black 18-year-old killed by Darren Wilson, a white police officer.

(He is still alive, though in critical condition.) It's yet another sad reminder of the fact that despite some reform inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, the issue of police brutality is still very much alive, however justified this particular shooting seems at the...

WND inquired last week with the U.S. Attorney's Office, asking for an opinion as to whether Farrakhan's call for 10,000 men to "rise up" and to "stalk them" and "kill them," warranted any sort of criminal investigation.

Then it says, retaliation is prescribed in matters of the slain. Retaliation is a...

    Joan Walsh breaks down the origins of the new hot word to describe milder-mannered but no less evil conservatives than Donald Trump: Then cuckservative started showing up in my Twitter mentions last week, after I suggested Donald Trump supporters might not be the brightest bulbs. As I clicked around, I came to a shocking conclusion: Ive been uncharacteristically downplaying the amount of racism and misogyny powering the right today. The spread of the epithet cuckservative is a sign that the crudest psycho-sexual insecurity animates the far right. Cuckservative, you see, is short for a cuckolded conservative. Its not about a...

    Ready to get uncomfortable with us? asked the official MTV Twitter account on Wednesday, preparing its audience for the documentary White People, which aired that night. In the hour-long special, Pulitzer Prizewinning reporter Jose Antonio Vargas talks to young people many of them white about race in America. While white people arent the only ones talking, they are involved in every conversation, and each segment has some focus on the white experience of race: a white guy who goes to a historically black college, the white teachers at a school on an Oglala Sioux reservation, white people who...

    ate at night on June 17, after he and his wife had gone to bed, Matthew Heimbachs phone rang on his nightstand. On the other end of the line was a man from the South Carolina field office of the FBI. The man asked Heimbach if he knew a man called Dylann Roof and, if so, if he knew where Roof was. Heimbach told the officer that he had never heard of Roof and wondered what the call was about. Without explaining further, the officer thanked him and hung up. Thats when things got weird, Heimbach says. Soon calls were...

    In the wake of the mass murder of nine Black church members in Charleston, S.C. and the rash of unsolved fires at Black churches in the South, a coalition of Black groups are calling on President Barack Obama to issue an executive order to establish a reparatory justice commission. This is a moment in which you have to act and we believe that from Ferguson to Baltimore to Charleston and obviously before that there is an urgent need to ask why this keeps happening and to definitely have the kind of conversation and action to move the nation forward, said...

    Democratic presidential candidates Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Martin OMalley came face to face with the tragic state of American progressivism last week, when an 11,000-strong rally of progressive activists was disrupted by #BlackLivesMatter protesters. Activists marched into the room chanting protest songs before taking the stage in front of a bemused OMalley to demand concrete commitments on police violence. Never mind that OMalley and Sanders are, among presidential candidates, by far the most sympathetic to the concerns of the Black Lives Matter movement: because theyre white, they cannot be trusted, and deserve to have whatever theyre talking about shoved...

    Readers of this website may not realize it, but Americas foremost public intellectual, especially on matters of race, is a fellow named Ta-Nehisi Coates, who for the mainstream media and liberal elites is the go-to guy. If youve never heard of him, dont worry, you dont matter. Coates is a canny writer and blogger at the Atlantic magazine and the author of two widely praised books. Like President Obamas books, one is a coming-of-age memoir, the other an Ive made it memoir -- but still got a lot to complain about. Hes also written two influential articles on race. Generally,...

    In what seemed like a political nanosecond, the Republican National Committee (RNC) released a statement on Saturday condemning Donald Trumps callous assertion that day that Sen. John McCain is not a war hero. Senator McCain is an American hero because he served his country and sacrificed more than most can imagine. Period. There is no place in our party or our country for comments that disparage those who have served honorably. The RNC is 100 percent correct. McCain is a hero. His sacrifice and service to this country when so many like Trump looked for ways to avoid the Vietnam...

    We live in an information age. Yet with all the avenues of information available to us, we still have far too many people who dont or wont understand the problems facing this nation. A few cases in point: Rep. Luis Guitierrez, (D) Illinois called the murder of Kate Steinle at the hands of an illegal immigrant, A little thing. I am sure it brings comfort to her family and friends that an elected official thinks so little of those cut down in the prime of their lives, murdered by someone in the United States thanks only to the efforts of...

    Crime makes people angry and distrustful. It collapses communities and fuels divisions. It also allows agitators such as the black-lives-matter crew to cherry-pick depredations and ignore the bigger picture: Black teens are 4.5 times more likely to die from homicide than non-Hispanic whites, concluded a 2014 study at Northwestern University into death rates in delinquent youth. Stanley Steemer Black Americans make up around 13 percent of the population, but committed more than half of all homicides recorded by the Bureau of Justice Statistics between 1980 and 2008. Yet the black-lives-matter mob couldnt care less. It is...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Its true. Black America spends a good amount of time discussing race, thinking about race, experiencing race, and living through the trauma these conversations and incidents based on race bring. No surprise there our Black and Brown skin has for so long bound us to a contentious relationship with a country that created a system of privileges and rules that disenfranchise and oppress minorities. Thats true, too. And although conversations about race have dominated media and social media, although Black and Brown people are still being unjustly treated or killed, and although a gunman stormed a historically Black church...
