    Two street preachers have been convicted of public order offences, after a public prosecutor claimed that quoting parts of the King James Bible in the context of modern British society "must be considered to be abusive and is a criminal matter". The prosecutor had argued that free speech must yield to multicultural reality in modern Britain, and that there was a clear threat to violence due to the words of the preachers and the criticism of Islam. Michael Overd and Michael Stockwell were convicted today (28th February) at Bristol Magistrates' Court. On Friday (25th February) the court dismissed the case...

    A black waitress who received thousands of dollars in donations after she claimed she received a racist note and no tip from a patron last month fabricated the incident, the customer claims. Kelly Carter, a waitress at Anitaís New Mexico Cafe in Ashburn, Va., claimed that a white man stiffed her on his $30.52 restaurant bill and wrote ďGreat service, donít tip black peopleĒ at the bottom of his receipt. But the note was forged, says Daniel Hebda, a lawyer for the customer.

    Have you ever been in downtown Los Angeles? I have been there MANY times, especially in the wholesale district. One thing about downtown L.A. is that you have to have situational awareness and be on alert at all times. Why? Because that area is chock full of people who are drunks, drug addicts, or flat out insane. In many cases they are all three. In fact it was rare to visit that area without seeing at least one case of outright lunacy. So the fact that another one of those downtown lunatics was in the news is no surprise....

    Last week in Chicago, a white special-needs teenager was held captive by four black youths. The victim was bound, gagged, tortured, forced to drink toilet water, partially scalped, and subject to racially and politically motivated verbal abuse. The perpetrators streamed portions of their violent savagery on Facebook. After the victim escaped from his assailants and was found on the streets by a police officer, a Chicago police commander initially said he was unsure whether the attack constituted a hate crime -- as if that distinction might calibrate the crime's viciousness. President Obama was likewise initially hesitant to label this cruelty...

    The horrific beating of a mentally disabled white man in Chicago by four black assailants broadcast on social media is highlighting anti-white hate crimes at a time of increased racial strife in the United States. But federal statistics and experts say anti-white incidents remain a smaller percentage of overall hate crimes. Anti-black hate crimes are still the largest number of cases. According to the 2015 FBI hate crime statistics, the latest available, there were 613 anti-white-related crimes out of 5,850 total cases. Thatís around 10.5 percent of all reported hate crimes, and within the yearly average, federal numbers show. By...
