    It took 14 months for the noose to show up. Fourteen months where Marcus Boyd says he endured racist comments, slights, even threats in a hostile workplace run by General Motors. A workplace where people declared bathrooms were for "whites only," where black supervisors were denounced as "boy" and ignored by their subordinates, where black employees were called "monkey," or told to "go back to Africa." A workplace where black employees were warned a white colleague's "daddy" was in the Ku Klux Klan. Where white workers wore shirts with Nazi symbols underneath their coveralls. In Ohio. In 2018. All those...
  • ESPN Host Suggests Trump Was Racist for Serving Clemson Players Fast Food

    An ESPN host suggested Wednesday it was racist for President Donald Trump to serve fast food to the Clemson football team at the White House, saying such food being given to players of a "predominately black sport" gave her pause. Paid for by Trump, the White House offered a spread of Wendy's, McDonald's, Burger King and Domino's pizza to the Clemson players on Monday when they visited to celebrate their national championship win. While the players appeared to enjoy the food, some political and sports observers took Trump to task for what they considered a low-class gesture.
  • Bar accused of having 'racist' dress code: 'Steer clear of this place'

    A new bar in Jersey City, N.J., is already racking up a bad reputation — for displaying a dress code that was interpreted as “racist.” The Ashford is a highly anticipated addition to the up-and-coming area, but its debut seems to have fallen flat during the first week, based on some reviews. And although a number of people have posted some semi-flattering comments about the food and interior of the speakeasy-style eatery, others couldn’t get past a sign that was posted outside its front door. “Confused with the dress code,” a Yelp reviewer named Sam K. wrote. “My blonde female...

    Anyone who’s NOT a leftist Democrat has been called a racist. If you want lower taxes, you’re a racist. But lower taxes are for all races, not just one. If you want capitalism over socialism, you’re a racist. But blacks or anyone of any other race who makes a million or billion dollars under capitalism gets to keep it. True racists would not want this. What’s the implication here? That “people of color” cannot succeed or achieve? And therefore they need socialism? No other implication could be made from the constant, hysterical shrieking by leftists that anyone who opposes their...

    Sirius XM radio host David Webb, who happens to be black, had an awkward moment on his show this week when a CNN analyst began lecturing him on his alleged “white privilege.” [snip] “David, by virtue of being a white male you have white privilege,” the guest replied. “Areva, I hate to break it to you, but you should’ve been better prepped. I’m black,” the Fox News contributor deadpanned. “You went immediately with an assumption. You’re talking to a black man who started out in rock radio in Boston, who crossed the paths into hip-hop rebuilding one of the greatest...

    Shopkeepers in Philadelphia's neighborhood convenience stores that serve food and beverages, locally referred to as "beer delis," face a legal prohibition on the thick glass barriers around cashiers that protect them from stickup artists wielding guns, knives, and other weapons. Because the shopkeepers predominately are Asian, and the customers (and robbers) are mostly black, this imbroglio looks a lot like a racist quest for vengeance against a commercially successful minority group.(Koreans) Julie Shaw of the Philadelphia Inquirer provides the details: Despite strong opposition from Asian American beer deli owners and their supporters, Philadelphia City Council voted, 14-3, Thursday to approve...

    Democratic councilwoman says the safety measure relied on in low-income neighborhoods hurts shoppers' feelings. Philadelphia is one step closer to getting rid of bulletproof glass in many of its small businesses as part of a larger effort to crack down on loitering, public urination and potential drug sales -- but it's triggered backlash from the shopkeepers.
  • Bill would force Philly's 'stop-and-go' stores to remove bulletproof glass

    A Philadelphia city councilwoman is defending her controversial bill that would force certain businesses to remove bulletproof barriers separating cashiers and customers. Councilwoman Cindy Bass said in a statement her proposed legislation only affects stores applying for a "large establishment" license, or sit-down restaurants where food is served and there is seating and tables for 30 or more people. The goal is to crack down on so-called "stop-and-go" shops, or convenience stores that sell hot food and alcohol, many of which have become nuisances to neighborhoods with intoxicated and unruly customers, according to Bass and other lawmakers.

    Earlier this month, Councilwoman Cindy Bass introduced a bill to better regulate the hundreds of “stop and go” convenience stores that operate predominantly in Philadelphia’s low-income neighborhoods. Among its stipulations, the controversial measure would prohibit any physical barrier that separates cashiers from customers at these so-called “nuisance” establishments – including protective bulletproof glass. According to Bass, these storefronts take advantage of the city’s lax restaurant liquor license provision while contributing to a variety of quality-of-life issues in low-income communities. Content to rely solely on the sale of cigarettes and alcohol, along with a bag of Doritos or two, many of...

    Newly elected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., in a recent "60 Minutes" interview, said there is "no question" that President Donald Trump is "racist." If Democrats -- the party of slavery and segregation and whose congressional members voted for the 1964 Civil Rights Act at a lesser percentage than Republicans -- stand for anything today, it's anti-racism and anti-bigotry. Except when it comes to liberal racism and liberal bigotry. Former CNN pundit and "media studies and urban education" professor Marc Lamont Hill, for example, condemned what he called Trump's pursuit of "racial division, white supremacy and xenophobia." The President, Hill said,...

    In a recent interview on the popular radio show The Breakfast Club, Temple University professor and former CNN contributor Marc Lamont Hill affectionately referred to Nation Of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan as “my brother.” Moreover, Hill pushed back against whites who suggested that he and other black pundits should, in Hill's words, “throw [Farrakhan] away wholesale” because of the latter’s long history of incendiary racial rhetoric. Noting that no one had ever urged him to similarly distance himself from what he describes as “extreme” conservatives like Bill O'Reilly and Ann Coulter when he was a Fox News contributor years ago,...

    Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) told PJM that the federal government should conduct a study of reparations for descendants of slaves to be able to determine the best way to “repair some of the damage" that slavery has caused to the African-American community. Jackson Lee became the lead sponsor of H.R. 40, the Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act, after Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) resigned from Congress. The legislation seeks to “address the fundamental injustice, cruelty, brutality, and inhumanity of slavery in the United States and the 13 American colonies between 1619 and 1865 and to...

    After complaints from various activist groups, the song "Vanilla Ice Cream" has been banned from Broadway. She song, which is featured in the Tony Award winning musical, "She Loves Me" has been deemed racist by the ruling committee. When asked about the decision, one Broadway official said, "in today's political climate, we can no longer include a song with such an overt racist message as Vanilla Ice Cream. The song is nothing but pure hate speech." Another Broadway executive added, "We are no longer a nation of vanilla. We are also chocolate, strawberry, and so many other flavors. Vanilla ice...

    The American left has perfected the art of changing the meaning of words or phrases. For example, gun confiscation is reshaped to now mean “sensible gun safety measures.” White male now means privileged. Republican and racist are now interchangeable words. Voter ID laws for fair and clean elections means voter suppression to liberals. Moreover, political violence—torching buildings and bludgeoning innocent Americans on the street is now synonymous in their lexicon, as a peaceful protest. The American left has struggled for a long time dealing with another term: liberal. Conservatives were successful at demonizing the term when George H.W. Bush labeled...
