  • Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey Is In Bed With DeRay Mckesson

    Many of our readers will now be aware of Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos’ recent permanent suspension from Twitter. Twitter claims to be an unbiased platform, open to all voices. Yet the company’s CEO is far from neutral, and his attitudes regularly seep down into Twitter’s policies. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s political biases have been prevalent on the platform for years, constantly bending the social media services rules for those whose political views align with his own, while harshly punishing their political opponents. A perfect example of this is Twitters open support of the Black Lives Matter movement. Jack Dorsey...

    Editor’s Note: This story contains spoilers for the film Black Panther. Black Panther’s Wakanda is a near-utopic vision of how a country could look; perhaps the best depiction of Afrofuturism ever captured on film. There were thriving and ideological-diverse cities surrounded by expansive and bucolic countrysides. There was modern technology perfectly weaved in to cultural tradition, a melding that was symbiotic instead of antagonistic. And while I didn’t see this happening during the movie, I’m sure Wakanda has amazing bottomless brunches. Unfortunately, a present-day attempt to recreate Wakanda would be unrealistic. Mainly because we’re roughly 20,000 years behind Wakandan tech....

    New data released Wednesday by the Census Bureau shows an estimated 61.4 percent of Americans over the age of 18 cast ballots, down from the 61.8 percent who voted in 2012 and well below the 63.8 percent who voted in 2004, the recent high-point of voter participation. White voters were most likely to turn out; 65.3 percent of whites told Census Bureau surveyors they voted in 2016, more than a full percentage point higher than their participation rate in 2012.  But voter turnout among black voters fell almost seven percentage points, to 59.4 percent, the Census figures show — after...

    Sean Hannity and other right-wing conservatives are calling out President Barack Obama‘s presidential portrait, accusing the painting of having hidden perversion. In a blog post published on Tuesday and subsequently deleted, the Fox News anchor’s staff reports that “industry insiders” believe Kehinde Wiley secretly placed concealed images of sperm throughout his painting. “Controversy surrounding Kehinde Wiley’s wildly non-traditional portrait of the Commander-in-Chief broke out within minutes of its unveiling; with industry insiders claiming the artist secretly inserted his trademark technique -concealing images of sperm within his paintings,” the post reads. Hannity’s blog post also brings up comments Wiley made in...

    Full title of article: A Racist Con-Man: Obama’s Portrait Artist, Who Hires Cheap Chinese Labor To Paint “His” Work, Says “Kill Whitey” Is A Major Theme Since Obama’s portrait was unveiled, I’ve received a flurry of text messages from outraged artist friends I made while living in New York. No, they weren’t outraged because they saw Kehinde Wiley’s other painting that feature black women murdering white women. They were outraged because Kehinde Wiley is a terrible artist who only rose to prominence, something they have been attempting to do their entire lives, in the art world because he is a...

    At his first polygraph test to enter the CIA, the future director had a secret. John Brennan on Thursday recalled being asked a standard question for a top security clearance at his early CIA lie detector test: Have you ever worked with or for a group that was dedicated to overthrowing the US? "I froze," Brennan said during a panel discussion about diversity in the intelligence community at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation's annual conference. "This was back in 1980, and I thought back to a previous election where I voted, and I voted for the Communist Party candidate,"

    Users on an anonymous image board discovered there appears to be a sperm cell drawn onto Barack Obama's forehead in his official presidential portrait, which now hangs in the Smithsonian Institution's National Portrait Gallery. Some may simply discount it as a vein, but oddly enough the artist who painted this portrait, Kehinde Wiley, has a history of adding semen into his art: [See examples in the article]

    “In Wiley’s rendering, Judith is depicted as a black woman and Holofernes as a white woman.” “Fans of the Obama portrait will recognize Wiley’s photo-realistic human figures, distinct colors and prominent use of floral backgrounds.” “Wiley translates this image of a courageous, powerful woman into a contemporary version that resonates with fury and righteousness.”

    Twitter users noted on Monday morning that Amy Sherald's portrait of former first lady Michelle Obama resembled someone else, not its muse. The former first lady's painting was done by Sherald, a Baltimore-based artist who won the Gallery's 2016 Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition. "As you may have guessed, I don't think there's anybody in my family who's had a portrait done, let alone a portrait that will hang in the National Gallery," Obama told attendees. "I am a little overwhelmed, to say the least," she added. "I am humbled. I am honored. I'm proud, but most of all, I am...

    The National Portrait Gallery on Monday unveiled portraits of former President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama — to a very mixed reception. Even though Barack Obama praised Baltimore-based artist Amy Sherald “for so spectacularly capturing the grace and beauty and intelligence and charm and hotness of the woman I love,” many critics on social media slammed the rendition of the former first lady. Their main question: Is that really her? […] For the portrait, the former first lady was painted in “grayscale” — a charcoal color with taupe undertones. She’s seated, with her hair falling around her shoulders,...

    WASHINGTON — The National Portrait Gallery will unveil official portraits of former President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle on Monday — with the art world wondering how they will be portrayed by the noted African-American artists they selected to portray them. Obama, the nation’s first African-American president, selected Kehinde Wiley; Mrs. Obama picked Amy Sherald. Both artists are known for their painting of African-Americans. Wiley and Sherald are the first African-Americans to be commissioned by the gallery to paint official portraits. The gallery, part of the Smithsonian Institution, has the only complete collection of presidential portraits outside of the...

    The Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery unveiled its commissioned portraits of former President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama on Monday. Barack Obama image, painted by artist Kehinde Wiley, shows him seated in front of an ivy backdrop, while Michelle Obama was painted by Amy Sherald in a pale blue setting. Wiley and Sherald were the first black artists commissioned to paint a presidential couple for the Smithsonian. “Kehinde was working at a disadvantage,” the 44th U.S. president joked at the ceremony. “His subject was less becoming. Not as fly.” “I tried to negotiate less gray hair, but Kehinde’s artistic...

    Who is Barack Obama’s? I mean really, who is he? Many Conservatives feared the worst when Obama was elected. I smelled a racist and a Marxist. Earlier this month we learned that Obama’s liked to rub elbowed with a famously vicious anti-Semite, Louis Farrakhan. The picture of the two shaking hands and grinning gleefully never circulated until now. Now we find out that Obama’s official portrait artist drew herself holding the heads of beheaded white women. Who is Barack Obama, America? Who is he really and what has he done?
