  • KANYE WEST: RACIST (Wait...what?)

    An excerpt from this video: "Kayne West listens to Jordan Petersen. And as I write this, I have discovered that he has quoted the smartest man on planet Earth, Thomas Sowell. Kanye West quoted Thomas Sowell. (pretend faints) Sorry about that. Kanye West has 28 million Twitter followers. 28 million people just heard from Thomas Sowell. Another 28 million I'm guessing that the number who have never heard of Thomas Sowell before is somewhere around oh, 28 million. Now that means that Kanye has to renounce his conservative crimes, oh, he just HAS to. And for the biggest reason of...

    Candace just put this up a few minutes ago. Assured, she pinpoints how blacks have been entrapped. Worth the 4 minute listen if you are so inclined.

    Candace spent yesterday in Minnesota. As Scott described here, she spoke at a lunch forum for Center of the American Experiment, the think tank that I run. We booked Candace before her sudden burst of publicity–sometimes you get lucky–and ticket sales went through the roof as her fame grew. Ultimately, 550 people attended the lunch forum. Candace said that she was stunned both by the size of the crowd and the warmth The audience, as you would expect, was mostly white, but we did draw a good number of African-Americans. During the Q and A session, a middle-aged black woman...

    Rap superstar and culture critic Kanye West accused many in the black community of hypocrisy by focusing more of their outrage on white violence against black people or his decision to wear a Donald Trump campaign hat than the problems in black communities. “Black people have a tendency to focus and march when a white person kills a black person or wears a hat, but when it’s 700 kids being killed in Chicago it’s O.K.,” Kanye West said during a lengthy and wide-ranging interview with TMZ boss Harvey Levin on Tuesday. The Grammy-winning rapper-producer’s words infuriated Van Lathan, a black...

    Twitchy ^ | may 1 gmt | Sam J
    Last week, Twitchy covered Kanye West tweeting that he couldn’t be a conservative because he hadn’t done enough research into what it means to be one. Sounds fair? Well today, to prove that he’s doing his homework perhaps, Kanye shared multiple texts on Twitter showing different viewpoints on the history of Republicans. And it’s fascinating. We’re going to guess Democrats would not like Kanye tweeting , but it’s the reality of the Democratic Party.

    Discrimination and Disparities by Thomas Sowell, Basic Books, New York, March 20, 2018 (143 pages, $28.00, hardcover) "Just the facts, ma'am." That was Joe Friday's interrogation refrain on Dragnet. The same comment could serve as the subtitle of Thomas Sowell's recent book, Discrimination and Disparities. Few works on politically explosive topics maintain such a consistent focus on empirical evidence while avoiding rhetorical jabs at opponents. On the other hand, empirical evidence cuts deep, especially when critics can't protest the author's "nasty" style. As radio talker Larry Elder observes, "[f]acts are to liberals what kryptonite is to Superman." Sowell's title, if...

    One kangaroo was killed and another injured at a zoo in southeast China after visitors to their enclosure pelted the animals with rocks and other objects in an apparent attempt to get the kangaroos to hop around. The abuse has sparked fury online and prompted renewed scrutiny into the mistreatment of animals at Chinese zoos, several of which have gained notoriety in recent years for cramped and cruel conditions. Zookeepers at the Fuzhou Zoo in Fujian Province told the Haixia Metropolis News this week that at least one visitor threw “multiple” sharp-edged rocks at a 12-year-old female kangaroo in March...

The House Judiciary Committee announced: On Thursday, April 26, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. the House Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing to examine social media filtering and policing practices. This hearing will focus on what metrics social media platforms use to moderate content, how filtering decisions are made, and whether viewpoints have been silenced on some of the most popular and widely used platforms.

The pro-Trump pair posted on the embattled social media platform on Friday night, saying after months of correspondence, they were deemed to be “unsafe to the community.” “Diamond And Silk have been corresponding since September 7, 2017, with Facebook (owned by Mark Zuckerberg), about their bias censorship and discrimination against D&S brand page,” they wrote. “Finally after several emails, chats, phone calls, appeals, beating around the bush, lies, and giving us the run around, Facebook gave us another bogus reason why Millions of people...

    10 Black Homeschool Moms You Should Follow Words: Camille Kirksey If you're looking for homeschoolers who look like you and your family, these 10 Black homeschool moms are a good place to start. Homeschooling may seem like the new kid on the block when it comes to educating our children, however it’s the world’s oldest education model.Prior to compulsory schooling, educating children at home was considered part of a parent’s responsibility. It was a way to ensure a family-centered upbringing that included morals, ethics, religious doctrine, and often times taught the children how to run the household from a young...

    ‘Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn’t go away,” observed― Philip K. Dick in “I Hope I Shall Arrive Soon.” Somewhere deep in a file drawer, or on a computer server humming away in a basement, are thousands upon thousands of numbers, with names and identities attached. They’re called grades. They represent an objective reality, which exists independent of what people want reality to be. They sit silently, completely indifferent to indignation, angry petitions, irritable gestures, teachers’ removal from classrooms—all the furor and clamor of institutional politics. Those numbers are now solely within the control of...

    A Texas woman who lied to police that three black men raped her pleaded guilty to felony charges last week. Breana Harmon was found guilty of tampering with evidence and documents Thursday after making up the March 8, 2017, story about her alleged abduction, according to KSAT-TV. Harmon’s fiancé reported her missing that same day after finding her car abandoned when he returned to their Denison home. She told police three men wearing ski masks kidnaped her and then raped her in a wooded area. Before that, she walked into a church wearing a shirt, bra and underwear claiming she...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | February 13, 2018 | Jason L. Riley
    The Trump administration spent much of its first year blocking or delaying its predecessor’s regulations. Thankfully, that work continues apace in year two. Any day now, look for the Education Department to halt implementation of an Obama -era rule on racial disparities in special education that was set to take full effect in July. Black students are more likely than white students to be placed in special-education classes, and the Obama administration attributed the disparity (along with nearly every black-white gap) to racial bias. Thus in late 2016, weeks before leaving office, Obama officials issued a rule that threatened school...
