    Detroit Metro Times ^ | August 16, 2018 | Violet Ikonomova
    More than a dozen community groups have called on Rep. Bettie Cook Scott (D-Detroit) to apologize for a series of racial slurs sources say she used to describe her primary election opponent, Rep. Stephanie Chang (D-Detroit). Scott is alleged to have referred to Chang as "ching-chang" and "the ching-chong" to multiple voters outside polling precincts during last Tuesday's election. She's also said to have called one of Chang's campaign volunteers an “immigrant,” saying “you don’t belong here” and “I want you out of my country.”
  • Calling 911 On Black People May Be Hate Crime Under Proposed Law

    CROWN HEIGHTS, BROOKLYN — New Yorkers who call 911 on law-abiding people of color are committing hate crimes and should be prosecuted, according to a state senator who was recently reported to police for campaigning in his own district. State Senator Jesse Hamilton, who represents Brownsville, Crown Heights and Flatbush, proposed new legislation a week after a self-described Trump fan called police to report him for speaking to constituents in public. It would criminalize 911 calls against people of color without evidence of malice. "That's gonna be a hate crime," Hamilton said. "This pattern of calling the police on black...

    Another person who gave testimony said: "We are going to take the land, even if it means we're going back to the dark ages. This country must be African. We are African." A man wearing a T-shirt of the right-wing Freedom Front Plus party said that his Afrikaner people had been farming in the Western Cape for the past 300 years. "When my forefathers came, they found no-one but the Khoi and the San. My people got what they have in this country not by theft, not by genocide, but by fair means." Some land owners threatened war to defend...

    The white and black oppressors of the lawless Left Democratic Party, who abhor Almighty God the Creator and His RIGHTEOUSNESS (Rom. 1:18-32) only seek to agitate, control, use, enrage and scare their black Democratic voters and to keep them on their state plantation. The very ones who are their lawless oppressors are usually put back in power each time by Black America; making heavier their chains of social ills. The Left is horrified of losing their political strangle hold and power and truly care nothing about black America. The black population are only a vessel to be used and oppressed...

    Idris Elba is one of many stars to be linked to the role of James Bond, as speculation continues over who will take over from Daniel Craig when he leaves the franchise. And the actor, 45, appears to be back in the running for the coveted 007 role after Bond producer Barbara Broccoli said 'it is time' for a non-white leading man to play the character. Speaking with American filmmaker Antoine Fuqua on Thursday about who could next take on the role she said it 'will happen eventually' and Idris is a clear favourite.

    Here is Conservative Candace Owens on MSNBC where she went head-to-head with Leftist Michael Eric Dyson. Owens did an outstanding job putting MSNBC on the spot for ignoring the enormous issue of violence in Chicago that is taking the lives of so many African-American people. Instead, they want to attack Donald Trump as a “racist.” Dyson is a guy who does nothing but talk about race. He droned on with one nutcase, Leftist talking point after another. Then, Candace Owens lowered the BOOM! She just ripped Dyson and the Democrats up one side and down the other for their “racist...

    A day after scoring 39 points against Portland, Michael Jordan took a different sort of shot this afternoon -- from one of his teammates. Craig Hodges, the Bulls' 3-point shooting specialist and one of the league's best, chided Jordan and other National Basketball Association players for failing to use their visibility to call attention to pressing social and political issues, from the deepening plight of inner-city youth to the failure of owners to hire more black head coaches. Hodges spoke after the other Bulls had left practice for the day, and Jordan could not be reached for comment. The 31-year-old...

    James G. Martin Center for Academic Renewal ^ | August 1, 2018 | John Staddon
    Like most Americans, I have always assumed that color blindness is our ideal. Not any more: color blindness is now become the new racism. So much for a 70-year struggle to fulfill Martin Luther King Jr.’s wish that his children be “judged not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” So much for the noble aim to treat people as individuals rather than as representatives of an identity group. How is color blindness not a virtue? Is it really racist now? Where on earth does such an idea come from? The answer seems to...

Black leftists like Angela Rye, Symone Sanders, etc. always in arguments with white conservatives like Ben Ferguson, etc. What's the tipping point? How does this end? How much more can America take?

    Five Thirty Eight ^ | July 31, 2018 | Perry Bacon, Jr.
    LeBron James attended a Cleveland campaign rally for Hillary Clinton in 2016 even though she was likely to lose his home state of Ohio. After Donald Trump’s election, James repeatedly blasted the president. When Laura Ingraham said James should “shut up and dribble,” he rebutted the Fox News host by saying he had never heard of her before her remark. And now this: On Monday, James wouldn’t rule out running for president in 2020. James began to get involved in political issues during the Obama years — publicly backing the first African-American president and the Black Lives Matter movement, for...

    A black woman says she had the police called on her by a female while she was sheltering from a thunderstorm in the doorway of a Brooklyn apartment building. Darsell Obregon filmed her encounter with the woman in the wealthy Park Slope neighborhood and posted the footage on Facebook last week. Obregon said she was on her way to a subway station when the rain started and sought cover in a small space outside the apartment building while she called an Uber. She claims the woman, identified as Arabella Juniper Torres, came out of the building and demanded that she...

    Dear Ms. Anne Hathaway, Two black sisters at an Oakland, California, subway station were attacked by a knife-wielding white man. He killed one sister, Nia Wilson, and injured the other. The Bay Area Rapid Transit police arrested him. His family reportedly told authorities that he suffered from mental problems. The authorities say that, for now, no evidence suggests that the suspect was motivated by race. But you did not need to wait for evidence of a hate crime, something you insist blacks worry about from sunup to sunset. You wrote: "(Wilson's murder) is unspeakable and MUST NOT BE MET with...

    Activists are planning to boycott Boston's Faneuil Hall after their calls for a name change to the historic site, which is named after a slave owner, have went unanswered. The hall has served as a home for civic rhetoric from the time colonists congregated to talk about freedom from the British.

    Minneapolis police released multiple videos on Sunday of the frenetic chase that led to the fatal shooting of a 31-year-old man in an alley as he fled from officers. The video shows the chase, which lasted only about a minute from when police officers Justin Schmidt and Ryan Kelly pulled up to the scene to when Thurman Blevins was shot and killed in an alley in North Minneapolis. The officers were responding to the area after a 911 call was made saying someone was firing a gun into the air.

    ATLANTA -- Atlanta Braves pitcher Sean Newcomb apologized Sunday for a series of offensive tweets he sent as a teenager, calling them "some stupid stuff.'' The 25-year-old Newcomb spoke less than an hour after he nearly pitched a no-hitter against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The tweets were sent in 2011 and 2012, when Newcomb was a senior in high school. One tweet included a racial epithet that was part of a rap lyric, and several others contained gay slurs. "I just wanted to apologize for any insensitive material,'' Newcomb said. "It was a long time ago, six or seven years...

He trails the field of Democrats in fundraising, though he has often used it to tout that he is the only "non-millionaire" in the race... ...."He's not trying to run a color-blind campaign," said Daniel Smith, a professor of political science at the University of Florida: "There's no question Andrew Gillum is running as a black man.

    We live in an age of unbridled white id. Many days it is anything goes, baby, from the White House to the baseball stands; objecting often draws a scornful wave of the hand and a lecture on political correctness. The latest eruption comes courtesy of Josh Hader, a 24-year-old white relief pitcher with a smoking fastball and a Twitter account filled with hideous thoughts typed when he was 17 and 18. A Hader sampler: “White Power, lol” (with an emoji of a clenched fist), “KKK,” and “I hate gay people.” He also used that vilest of words for black people....

    American Thinker ^ | 7/25/2018
    Whatever you thought crazy was, put it aside. Because no matter what you think is the craziest story of black violence – and the denial, deceit, and delusion surrounding it – this recent story out of Oakland is way past that. It began simply and sadly enough on a BART system in the Oakland area. Two younger black people killed two older white guys. The reaction from BART was as predictable as it was lame: BART is safe; murder and violence are isolated; and no, you cannot see the videos from any of the hundreds of cameras in the stations....
