    A white woman called the cops on a black father at his child’s soccer game — claiming he yelled at the referee, when he was actually just cheering on his son, according to local reports. Two other women who were at the teen match in Ponte Vedro, Fla., over the weekend took videos and posted about the incident on Facebook — uploading images of the field marshal who called the police, showing her sitting in a blue golfcart with a phone to her ear and nicknaming her “Golfcart Gail.” “A parent at my son’s soccer game had the police called...

    Alpha and Omega Ministries ^ | 10/19/18 | James White
    Started off with a rebuttal of the misrepresentation published by Dr. Eric Mason in his new book (endorsed by many Reformed leaders) regarding yours truly and the May 11th meme I posted that insists that there is no room for “black spaces” or “white spaces” at the Lord’s Table, but only room for a singular focus upon Christ. This led to Mason calling for an “ecumenical council” to deal with “heretics” like…me.
  • Warren Highlights the Danger of Racial Identity

    She was mocked as "Fauxcahontas" long before President Donald Trump began referring to her as "Pocahontas," and frankly, Sen. Elizabeth Warren invited the ridicule. She is a poster child for the pitfalls of basing identity on race, and reminds us of the many furies such self-definition can unleash. What people choose to call themselves shouldn't matter to outsiders. If I want to call myself a post-Jerseyite dog lover, no one would care - unless there is affirmative action for former Jersey residents who can't skip dog videos on Twitter. What made Elizabeth Warren infuriating is that she was gaming the...
  • When Identity Politics Eats Its Own: In a heated D.C. election, a black female Democrat [tr]

    American Conservative ^ | October 18, 2018 | Casey Chalk
    Identity politics is a double-edged sword. That’s the lesson to be learned from one of this year’s District of Columbia Council elections. The race pits incumbent D.C. Councilmember Elissa Silverman (I-At Large) against third-generation Washingtonian (and Democrat) Dionne Reeder. Both are women and both are liberal. Yet one is white and Jewish, while the other is black. And that, unfortunately, is making all the difference in this increasingly bitter race. The peculiar acrimony of this campaign should be a reminder to voters of all political persuasions that identity politics is a worrisome trend, an ineffective way of promoting the common...

    An 18-year-old man has been arrested in Brooklyn after surveillance video showed him attacking an Orthodox Jewish man with a tree branch on Monday afternoon. The footage shows the 26-year-old victim, dressed in a black suit and hat, crossing Empire Boulevard at Albany Avenue in the Crown Heights neighbourhood when he is confronted by the suspect, identified as Shervy Taylor. The younger man, dressed in a white T-shirt and dark-colored jeans, chases the Jewish man across the intersection while brandishing a large tree limb.

    Over a dozen juveniles were arrested and cited after police say a large brawl involving up to 200 school students erupted outside of a McDonald’s in the Hunting Park section of Philadelphia. Police say they were called for a report of a large fight on Broad Street and Hunting Park Avenue around 3:40 p.m. Police say when they arrived it “immediately deteriorated into a riotous condition” with roughly 150 to 200 students fighting and instigating.

    Late Show host Stephen Colbert described President Donald Trump’s jokes about Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) as a “racist tirade” amid the ongoing drama over her supposed American Indian ancestry. On Tuesday, Warren released test results indicating that she had a maximum of 1.6 percent “Mesoamerican” heritage, which is far below the minimum requirement to claim membership of most Native American tribes. “After years of mocking Elizabeth Warren, clearly the President must have had a lot to say about these test results,” Colbert said, before playing a clip of Trump saying he did not care about the test results. “You care!...

    Harvard Crimson ^ | October 15, 2018 | Elyse D. Pham
    “It’s incredible you got into Harvard — especially with its racist admission policies!” I heard the sentiment of this impassioned exclamation all too frequently in the months following my acceptance. Everyone guilty of saying it meant well. They probably even believed that the last bit — the one that never failed to provoke an internal grimace — strengthened the compliment, elevating the gravity of my achievement. Of course, I’d happily accept the praise if the sentiments fueling it didn’t have the potential to harm other equally-deserving Harvard hopefuls. Unfortunately, that potential remains strong, more so now than ever. During this...

    The chancellor of North Carolina's flagship public university apologized Friday for the school's history of slavery, adding that words alone are not enough to atone for using enslaved people to build and maintain the campus. "As chancellor of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, I offer our university's deepest apology for the profound injustices of slavery, our full acknowledgment of the strength of enslaved peoples in the face of their suffering, and our respect and indebtedness to them," Chancellor Carol Folt said during a celebration of the school's 225th anniversary. "And I reaffirm our university's commitment to facing...

    In his youth, Herschel Walker’s freakish athleticism allowed him to channel a quiet rage that allowed him to excel in football, bobsledding, sprinting and mixed martial arts. Walker, now 56, isn’t quite the athletic marvel that he was when he was in his 20s, but that doesn’t mean that fire in his belly is gone. Unfortunately for Don Lemon, Walker is directing every last bit of his fire toward the CNN host after a controversial segment Tuesday on Kanye West’s visit to the White House. Lemon, along with political commentators Bakari Sellers and Tara Setmayer, sparked outrage with comments about...

    LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles County inspector general is investigating whether sheriff’s deputies racially profiled drivers when they stopped thousands of innocent Latinos in search of drugs on a major freeway, the Los Angeles Times reported Monday. The investigation began after the newspaper reported that 69 percent of drivers who were stopped between 2012 and 2017 as part of an enforcement operation on Interstate 5 were Latino. Two-thirds of the Latinos stopped by the Los Angeles County sheriff’s Domestic Highway Enforcement Team had their cars searched, a rate far higher than other racial groups, the newspaper reported. County Supervisor...

    The Dutch public broadcaster said Wednesday it had decided to change the appearance of the traditional Christmas-time character Black Pete whose blackface outfit sparks an annual controversy. NTR said the character of Zwarte Piet - the helper of Saint Nicholas, or Sinterklaas as he is known in Dutch - would this year only have soot smudges on his face for his official arrival in November. 'The NTR respects both tradition and change, but it is our public duty as an independent public broadcaster to reflect these changes in society,' said the broadcaster, which makes the programme for his arrival.

    A student production of West Side Story at Kent State University has been cancelled after uproar that white students had been cast to play Latino characters. Latino students who auditioned for roles playing members of the 'Sharks', a Puerto Rican street gang in the musical, were outraged after the three leading roles all went to non-Latino students. Kent State musical theater major Bridgett Martinez, whose parents are from Puerto Rico, auditioned for her dream role as the romantic lead Maria, and was devastated when a white student landed the part. The musical, an adaptation of Romeo And Juliet, is set...

    In a push to improve diversity at District 15 middle schools in Brooklyn, Mayor de Blasio last week approved a plan to remove admission standards at all of them. In liberal Park Slope and the surrounding areas, the news was received with mixed reactions. Those against the plan were quoted anonymously in various news outlets, lest they somehow appear to oppose diversity. They had seen what happened to Upper West Side parents who were named and shamed in articles when they opposed proposals for their schools.

    n the great span of world history, nearly all change and progress has come from an under-served and out-of-power group pushing, prodding, and pounding on those who hold power to expand it to include a wider and more diverse population. Unfortunately, nearly every time, those in power don’t have the foresight or humility to expand the circles without this external threat. As a white male Christian in America, I am part of a dwindling subset that has held the levers of power politically and economically in nearly every field for the entire history of the United States. And though my...

    The final trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald contained a jaw-dropping character reveal that has some Harry Potter fans fuming. As it turns out, one of the prequel franchise’s “new” characters, played by Claudia Kim, is actually a familiar villain from the original series: Voldemort’s evil snake companion Nagini. Author and screenwriter J.K. Rowling tweeted that she’d been sitting on this secret “for around 20 years.” But social media skeptics say that Nagini’s shocking past as a Korean woman seems highly implausible and possibly racist.

    An insurance agent claims he should qualify as a minority business owner, because a DNA test shows he’s 4 percent African — enough, he believes, to make him “a certified black man.” Ralph Taylor knows on the outside he looks like an average white guy, but he is trying using the results from his AncestryByDNA test to bolster his business in Lynnwood, Washington. “I’ve always known that I’m multiracial,” the 55-year-old declared to the Washington Post. The 2010 test showed that he’s 90 percent European, 6 percent indigenous American and 4 percent sub-Saharan African. This gizmo can turbocharge the DNA-identification...

    Tulane University now requires all incoming students to enroll in a “Race and Inclusion” course, a new addition to the curriculum that has been condemned by some students for its lack of acknowledgment of viewpoint diversity. In a recent press release, Tulane announced that all new enrollees will be mandated to enroll in a course that focuses at least 60 percent of it content on “race and inclusion” to help students understand the “increasingly diverse society” they live in.

    A sociolinguist from Stanford University claims the way African-Americans speak leads to discrimination across the board — in the court system, interactions with police, education, and employment. Professor John Rickford says “Black Vernacular English” is viewed as less “trustworthy, intelligent and well-educated” than so-called standard “white” English, and that “dismantling this construction is part of the fight for racial justice.”
