  • New York’s “Whites on jury duty” effect just being noticed by the media

    Coach is Right ^ | 6/19/14 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    Nevertheless, those who recognized what they were looking at when they were called to jury duty during the Rudy Giuliani years (1994 – 2001) had no trouble understanding why crime was going down in New York City. My own experience told me all I needed to know about why the “good guys” had started to win the war to save the city. In May 1995 I was called to serve on a jury in Richmond County one of the five counties that make up New York City. I had served as a police officer in the county (known as Staten...

    Tupac would have turned 43 today. In age of Trayvon and Jordan Davis, here's why we have a hard time letting him go. Tupac Shakur lived for twenty-five years. I was nine years-old when he died and twenty-five seemed so grown to me. Twenty-five sounded like you had lived. It wasn’t until I started approaching twenty-five myself that I realized how close to black boyhood Tupac, born forty-three years ago to the day, was when he died. I think that’s part of the reason we have a hard time letting him go. For all of his faults (and there were...

    If left-leaning publications value diversity, why don't they have any?On the staff of The American Prospect, I’m the only member of an ethnic minority. That's not because I bring all the variety the magazine needs, or because the editors don't think diversity is valuable. Everyone on the masthead of this liberal publication is committed to being inclusive—not just of racial and ethnic minorities but of women; gays, lesbians, and transgender people; and the poor. Nearly 40 percent of the country is non-white and/or Hispanic, but the number of minorities at the outlets included in this article's tally—most of them self-identified...

    Let’s be clear: I don’t hate white people. In fact, many of my best friends are white (yes, that was a joke, since I hear this often said about black people). I have a view of white America that is not built on being unnecessarily angry at anyone, but I have no fear about being justifiably disappointed by the lack of accountability being taken for the role that white America has played in creating the condition of my people: We fill up the prisons for things that white guys get away with all the time, we are overrun with poverty...

    A video titled “White Guys: We Suck and We’re Sorry,” which argues that white men need to apologize for their privilege and past transgressions, was recently picked up by the Huffington Post. The video didn’t sit well with Glenn Beck, who saw it around 3 a.m. on Thursday and immediately wrote a response to deliver on his radio program Thursday. “I don’t know what we’re doing as a society,” Beck began. “We’re tearing apart absolutely everything and splitting [ourselves] into little groups. Now white men suck, and we need to apologize.”

    Some things are predictable to observant students of human nature. There is a Newtonian principle of equal and opposite reactions in social, political and cultural trends. After the radical anti-war protests and bohemian lifestyle experimentation of the 1960s — LSD, campus sit-in demonstrations, psychedelic rock, hippie communes and meditation gurus — a discernible backlash took hold. This was first manifested in politics: Ronald Reagan’s election as governor of California was perhaps the first omen, as his campaign made a clear issue of opposition to student radicalism at the University of California Berkeley. The 1968 election of Richard Nixon, when Democrat...

    A new study suggests that politically unaffiliated white Americans who are experiencing a shift to minority status will feel threatened by that shift and subsequently embrace more conservative policies. They will align themselves, therefore, with the Republican Party, providing that party with a more stable base in the midst of racial divisiveness. The revealing study, conducted by Maureen Craig and Jennifer Richeson at Northwestern University, was published by the professional journal Psychological Science and noted by Paul Bedard at the Washington Examiner. The research challenges the notion that the Republican Party will diminish as its aging white members die and...

The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and...

They are in Austin because of the major role of President Lyndon Johnson in pushing the legislation through in the first months of his presidential administration in 1964.

    The White Privilege Conference claims everyone is racist, even those involved in helping the black community even if they are not African American themselves. But now a taxpayer-funded event is attempting to teach people that white people can never help but be racist and claims they should be treated like alcoholics. In a related report by The Inquisitr, Bill O’Reilly believes President Obama believes in the white privilege concept, which was denounced by students when a Wisconsin school began teaching it: “They’re dividing the students. They’re saying to non-whites, ‘You have been oppressed and you’re still being oppressed. This is...

A study found that one in three people from white families had long-standing illnesses, compared to only one in five of those from non-white ethnic groups. White people were almost twice as likely as black and Asian people to have long-term illnesses which limit their lifestyle, the research suggests. The figures, released by the Office for National Statistics (ONS), show that 36 percent of people from white ethnic groups had long-standing illnesses, while among non-white groups the proportion was 21 percent. …

    When the Provisional Irish Republican Army agreed to end its paramilitary insurgency (and/or terrorist campaign) against British rule in Northern Ireland with the Good Friday accords of 1998, it was unambiguously a good thing for the people of Ireland and their British next-door neighbors. It’s not like everything suddenly became hunky-dory in the long and troubled historical relationship between those islands, but the peace has largely held – splinter groups and isolated sectarian violence aside – and an era of relative normalcy and increasing prosperity has followed. Given the global context of the 21st century, an intractable religious-cum-nationalist dispute between...

    Often you need to hit bottom before you can start working your way back up. We Southern Democrats are basically at that point. With control of only two of 22 legislative bodies, three of 11 governors’ mansions and precious few other statewide offices, Southern Democrats are an endangered species indeed. In 1969, Republican strategist Kevin Phillips argued that the South was “shaping up as the pillar of a national conservative party.” He was half right: Although Democrats have made great strides elsewhere, between 1992 and 2012 Republicans won the governorships and legislatures of all but two Southern states.

The Durango is red, which is unimportant. The teenagers are black, which is important.

    CLEVELAND, Ohio (CBS Cleveland) - Cleveland authorities have made several arrests following the mob beating of a disabled Army veteran by a group of teenagers.

Robinson told WOIO that he was attacked by the teens, then robbed of his possessions. During the attack, the teens made several derogatory remarks about Robinson. “What they were saying was, ‘Knock that boy out!’ ‘White boy.’ ‘Cracker,’” he was quoted as saying about the incident. “They were saying, ‘Knock that white boy out.’” This week,...

    Yale has released the latest of its biannual reports regarding sexual assault claims handled through the university's due process-unfriendly disciplinary system. The report testifies to some interesting changes, strongly suggesting that Yale adjudicates sexual assault claims less on a principle of justice and more out of a concern with avoiding negative public relations. The background for this new release comes in Yale's previous report, which appeared in September and was penned (as were all previous reports) by Yale Deputy Provost Stephanie Spangler. Like other Spangler offerings, it offered hints of the Orwellian nature of sexual assault proceedings at Yale while...

After spending four years scouring the streets for willing subjects she discovered the majority of caregivers, aged 23 to 60, were immigrants living on the minimum wage with no sick pay, holidays or health benefits.

    The high-profile bullying case of a black student has thrust San Jose State under an intense spotlight to improve the college experience for its minority students and diversify its predominately white faculty.

At San Jose State, 59 percent of the faculty are listed as white, although 10 percent of the professors didn't specify a race. The faculty at...

They ranged from the absurd—that you can't call the 20-year-old a victim or say that he was "killed" because he was (allegedly) breaking into a car—to the downright vicious and un-American defenses of the right to execute a young man before he's proved guilty of breaking into a car. #No investigation was needed, they allege repeatedly. Property crime should bring punishment by death. And it got worse. He was a "thug." He...

    The “knockout game” or variations of the disturbing trend goes back to at least 1992, research by Epoch Times shows. The investigation included exploring claims on conservative blogs and media outlets regarding black on white racism, or that blacks are mostly perpetrating the vicious game and white people are the victims. Epoch Times analyzed 37 incidents that span from September 18, 1992 through November 24, 2013 using news reports and information from local governments. The analysis shows that the knockout game—where people try to knockout a random person with one punch—stretches back much further and was more widespread than previously...

How will I know if I cross its path?’ I have asked several people. The problem then is the responses: no two are alike. It seems this white privilege thing is quite controversial, and while no two people who believe in this thing can agree on specifics, they all agree it exists. Apparently it’s not a physical creature at all but a ‘societal truth’. It’s kind of like...

Initial skirmishes in that race war have already begun, and have in fact been going on for some years. But public officials pretend that it is not happening, and the mainstream media seldom publish it at all, except in ways that conceal what is really taking place. For American society, a dangerous...

Though the bill in its current form will most likely die in the Senate, the fact that Republicans would even pass it should concern us.

In the latest incident, the suspect passed a 31-year-old rider on the M60 bus riding through Harlem, on West 127th Street, between Amsterdam Avenue and Morningside Drive, around 2:45 p.m., Friday, when he shouted the racial slur and punched the victim in the face, breaking his nose and eye...

    The Nation ^ | September 11, 2013 | Krystie Yandoli and StudentNation
    #WhiteGenocide: these were the words Indiana University students found written on fliers and in chalk around their campus last March. This white power message references the theory among supremacists that the increasing non-white population in the United States is a threat to eliminate “white culture.” One student, Aidan Crane, explained in the Indiana Daily Student that he took it upon himself to tear down every flier he saw. He also encouraged his fellow Hoosiers to follow suit. “Dangerous movements grow from small seeds,” Crane wrote. “We have a responsibility to stop racism and white nationalism whenever they rear their ugly...

    MSNBC's The Grio ^ | September 5, 2013 | George Yancy
    At the New York Times, professor of philosophy George Yancy writes an incisive piece about white people's fear of blacks, which he says is global and has origins in Europe. For centuries, black people have been reduced to constricting and false stereotypes that force them to move through social spaces in a way designed to put whites at ease, he says. "We fear that our black bodies incite an accusation," he writes. My point here is to say that the white gaze is global and historically mobile. And its origins, while from Europe, are deeply seated in the making of...

    Is there a black-on-white crime epidemic in America that is not being reported by police and reporters who cover up the incidences of abuse and violence in fear of being called racist? Has the time come to stop being called a “racist” when it is reported that white people are being viciously attacked because of the color of their skin?

    Syndicated columnist Pat Buchanan made a statement Friday guaranteed to make liberal media members' heads spin. During a discussion about Affirmative Action on PBS's McLaughlin Group, Buchanan said, "Whites are the only group that you can discriminate against legally in America now" (video follows with transcript and commentary): (VIDEO-AT-LINK)JOHN MCLAUGHLIN, HOST: Are you saying college admissions should be based on diversity? ELEANOR CLIFT, NEWSWEEK/DAILY BEAST: Yeah, I mean, I think lots of factors go into diversity. I think race can be one of them, and I think the Supreme Court so far agrees with that. MCLAUGHLIN: 67 percent opposed it,...

    Dear Chancellor Miller: On May 9, you announced that you were initiating a process to "rethink" our university's approach to diversity and inclusion. Then, on August 16, you announced that eleven individuals agreed to serve on your Chancellor’s Committee on Diversity and Inclusion. For the following reasons, I find the composition of the committee to be deeply problematic. 1. Your inclusion committee is 0% white male. I have written three books dealing with campus diversity issues. I have been invited to speak on issues of diversity (largely ideological) at 78 college campuses. Over the last ten years, I have written...

    <p>White people are products of their own whitewashed, sanitized environment. Black people have been systematically excluded from white neighborhoods. Black stories rarely surface in popular culture. The history of race in high school textbooks has been boiled down to a handful of bedtime stories about Jackie Robinson and Rosa Parks. Try to tap into the average white person's feelings on race and you won't necessarily find feelings of hate and antipathy. You just won't find much of anything, no fully formed or well-considered thoughts about race of any kind. There's nothing really there. Even white people who want black friends don't know where to start.</p>

    Progressive radio host and frequent MSNBC guest, Earl Ofari Hutchinson, appeared on MSNBC with Thomas Roberts on Tuesday where he dug into Republican efforts to deflect criticism that state-level voter identification laws are designed to disenfranchise minority voters. Hutchinson said that racially insensitive attacks on President Barack Obama appeal to the GOP’s base voters, personified by a rodeo clown who was recently criticized for wearing an Obama mask. “The relentless racial assault on Obama has been the one unyielding constant from the moment that Obama declared his presidential candidacy in 2007,” Hutchinson recently wrote on his blog. Asked to...

    Georgia State University’s official roster of more than 300 campus organizations includes everything from the Bengali Student Association to the Women’s Ultimate Frisbee Club. But one student group you won’t find on the list — the new White Student Union — is already making headlines nationwide. Freshman Patrick Sharp says he launched the White Student Union this summer in order to recognize and appreciate white culture. As he told the Atlanta Journal Constitution, “All we want to do is celebrate white identity. This is about being in touch with who you are as a white person and being proud of...

    Connie Schultz’s July 20 column, “Feeling conspicuously white after the Zimmerman verdict,” put words to exactly how I have been feeling since the verdict was rendered in the trial of George Zimmerman — conspicuously white. While I do not have a problem with the “Stand Your Ground” law in theory, consistency in its application appears to be difficult. I do not believe it is racially biased in and of itself, but where racial bias exists it could have a corrupting influence. If memory serves, I believe Mr. Zimmerman was originally released without charges by the Sanford Police Department based on...

    Coach is Right ^ | 7/31/13 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    In a surprising acknowledgement of the truth, the Associated Press has reported, “Four out of 5 U.S. adults struggle with joblessness, near poverty or reliance on welfare for at least parts of their lives, a sign of deteriorating economic security and an elusive American dream.” The damning report based on what the AP calls exclusive survey data continues with, “…the widening gap between rich and poor and loss of good-paying manufacturing jobs as reasons for the trend.” Given Barack Obama’s latest “pivot” toward the problems of unemployed Americans – which by some accounts was his 19th announced such “pivot”- the...

    In 2002, Michael Green extracted a single promise from me during the year I spent reporting about his life after he spent 13 years in prison for a rape he did not commit. Green, who is African-American, knew I’d be giving a lot of speeches about his story, including at high schools in Cleveland. He saw an opportunity to save lives. “Tell the boys,” he said to me over and over. “Tell the boys this comes from me: If the police stop you, don’t ever run. Take your hands out of your pockets. Immediately. Put your hands over your head....
