    The Denver Post is wondering if Union Station is itself racist. Columnist Ray Mark Rinaldi wonders, "Did diversity miss the train in Union Station's architecture?" He continues, (emphasis mine) "The urban playground at Union Station isn't drawing people of color and it may be the building's fault." How can an inanimate object be racist? The newly designed Union Station is very popular, says Rinaldi. "If, that is," he warns, "you are white and not paying attention. Or if you think diversity doesn't matter." It's design is an "Architecture of exclusivity," he writes. "The symmetry, arched windows, ornate cornice and stacked,...

    <p>On Tuesday, Slate and everyone else posted a video of a woman who is harassed more than 100 times by men as she walks around New York City for ten hours. More specifically, it’s a video of a young white woman who is harassed by mostly black and Latino men as she walks around New York City for ten hours. The one dude who turns around and says, “Nice,” is white, but the guys who do the most egregious things—like the one who harangues her, “Somebody’s acknowledging you for being beautiful! You should say thank you more,” or the one who follows her down the street too closely for five whole minutes—are not.</p>

    A few years ago, I relayed the following experience: Multiculturalists would tell the four year-old boy in the photo that he was being white-washed. They would tell the 40 year old blogger hammering this post out on his keyboard, that he is a twinkie: White on the inside, yellow on the out. If I were black, maybe I’d be an Uncle Tom and a sellout. I spent 6 years of my college time living with two of my teammates, who were brothers. They also happened to be middle-class black, from Alburqurque. One day, a student asked Greg, the younger brother,...

    After 50 years of voting Democrat the black community is still overwhelmingly plagued by poverty, crime, drug abuse, and broken families. In fact, since Barack Obama became president, fewer African Americans own homes and businesses than under George Bush and their workforce participation is at its lowest rate since the 1970's. So much for "hope" and "change". Regardless of what the NAACP, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson tell their brethren, the Democratic party is driven by a selfish desire to blackmail blacks with the threat of losing their welfare, social entitlements, instead of empowering their constituents to find a better...

    Ferguson protesters have threatened to rape the wife of a police officer. The exchange was caught on camera. The incident began when the unnamed officer sat in a police car. Ferguson protesters approached the car and demanded to know why another officer was not wearing a body camera. The questions very quickly became insults, then threats, when the officer did not respond. A brief transcript of the encounter is below: ... Protester 1: This is our s**t.

A letter, signed by seven superintendents, was sent to St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch. A spokesperson for Mr. McCulloch says he is considering the matter. It was penned by Riverview Gardens School District, and signed by an additional six superintendents. The letter says that when the decision is released, it would be best after school.

Specifically, some Seahawks players think third-year quarterback Russell Wilson is too close to the front office, and doesn't always take blame for his mistakes. Then there's this: "There is also an element of race that needs to be discussed," Freeman wrote. "My feeling on this -- and it's backed up by several interviews with Seahawks players -- is that some of the black players think Wilson isn't black enough." We talked about Wilson's blackness on the Eye on...

Because Wilson is white and Brown was black, the case has ignited intense debate over how police interact with African American men. But more than a half-dozen unnamed black witnesses have provided testimony to a St. Louis County grand jury that largely supports Wilson’s account of events...

    Despite some pro-Michael Brown witnesses stating that at no point did Brown and officer Darren Wilson struggle in Wilson's police car, new forensics show that Brown's blood was in the car, on Wilson's gun, and on Wilson's person. According to a witness put forward by the NAACP, the witness “did not see Michael Brown struggling with the police officer inside his car at any point. They did witness the incident from the time it started from the time of the initial stop by the police car.” This is categorically false. The forensics irrefutably show Brown's blood splattered on the car,...

Before his death, Brown was caught on video in a strong-arm robbery of a convenience store. The video shows Brown was “unarmed” and used his personal strength to push away and assault a store clerk who tried to stop him from stealing a $50 pack of cigars. When Officer Darren Wilson stopped Brown and a friend in the middle of the road, an altercation allegedly occurred....

Interestingly many of the protesters were from outside of St. Louis, including a number of east coast college students. They want to be apart of “change” which of course means they want to impose their views on everyone else. Protesters even had the opportunity to play with toy animals in a sandbox under the watchful eyes of a graduate student from the University of Missouri. Clearly they’re sticking it to the man.

He died in a bullet-riddled blue Hyundai targeted by 116 police rounds, which also wounded four innocent bystanders.

But that is false, and Barack Obama knows it is false.

The officer was shot close to the area impacted by protests last month over the shooting of Michael Brown, a senior local police source with official knowledge of the situation told NBC News. St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said he did not think the officer's shooting was related to two separate protests about Michael Brown's shooting that were...

    FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — Police and protesters clashed briefly in Ferguson just hours after the St. Louis suburb's police chief issued an apology to the family of Michael Brown, a black 18-year-old who was fatally shot by a white police officer last month. Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson appeared outside the police department in civilian clothes late Thursday to assure protesters that there would be changes in the wake of Brown's killing, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported (http://bit.ly/1rnGlrg ). "All those things that are causing mistrust are being evaluated and we are going to be making changes," Jackson said. The...

    During their tenure, both Holder and Obama have also used the Justice Department as a vehicle to promote racial grievances, and they’ve made no secret of their obsession. It’s hard to miss that they both view the United States justice system as deeply tainted by institutional racism. They would have us believe that the system routinely and habitually discriminates against blacks and that law enforcement officials throughout the nation target blacks across the board, from traffic stops to drug charges to criminal assault and other violent crimes.

    “Whether they wear blue jeans or blue uniforms, criminals must be held accountable” Civil rights leaders called Thursday for the federal government to intervene in criminal investigations into the deaths of two unarmed black men killed by police. Officials from the National Urban League, the National Action Network and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People condemned the law enforcement response to both the cases of Michael Brown, who was shot by a Missouri police officer on Aug. 9, and Eric Garner, who died after being held in a chokehold by New York police earlier this summer. A...

    James Golden, better known to Rush Limbaugh’s listeners as call screener “Bo Snerdly,” sat down with Ginni Thomas for a thirty minute interview for the Daily Caller. Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, spent the first half of the interview talking about black America and the second half talking about Golden’s experiences working for 26 years with Limbaugh. The comments Golden made about the black community and its experience, much of it drawn from his own personal life growing up in Jamaica, Queens, NY, was incredibly interesting. And it will certainly be controversial. Here are 5 key quotes...

    Cher might be wishing she could turn back time after a new lawsuit claims she was being racist. According to TMZ, the veteran diva was auditioning dancers for her 2014 Dressed To Kill tour when choreographer Kevin Wilson had a particular liking for a "minority female dancer." Cher allegedly told Wilson to seek out a white, blonde dancer, saying, "We have too much color onstage." He claims in the suit that she also requested not to cast "anymore dark skinned black dancers on the tour."

    Make sure you watch both videos! See how the two videos give two different stories. Someone call Al Sharpton quickly before he gets the pitchforks out. With the nation a racial tinderbox in the wake of 18-year-old Michael Brown’s shooting death by a white police officer, a California firefighter threw out what could have been an incendiary spark by accusing a cop of treating him differently because he’s black. Little did Oakland firefighter Keith Jones know that the officer was wearing a body-cam video recorder when their tense encounter unfolded. And the video didn’t quite match the complaint Jones filed...

    Charlie Crist is siding with the teachers union — not African-American ministers — over a new lawsuit that seeks to dismantle the state’s major school-choice program..... Crist made his choice clear Wednesday when he refused to heed the request of a major Panhandle civil-rights leader, the Rev. H.K. Matthews, who asked the Democrat to “publicly denounce” a new teacher union-led lawsuit that seeks to dismantle the major school-choice program. “You cannot stay silent on this lawsuit,” Matthews wrote. “These families deserve to know if you support or oppose the lawsuit to evict 70,000 poor — and mostly minority — children...

    When Pepsi-Cola President Walter Mack recognized his company could sell more product to black Americans in the 1940s, he initiated a racially-targeted marketing effort to increase sales. It worked and the company’s market share rose dramatically in just a few years. The strategy was so successful, some inside the company were concerned it might be off-putting to white consumers, prompting Mack to declare that Pepsi would not, “become known as a n----r drink.”This infamous racial slur, unapologetically stated in the presence of African-American ad executives, ran through my mind after reading media reports about the racist emails from Atlanta Hawks...
