    Yesterday the House Oversight and Reform Subcommittee on National Security and Subcommittee on Civil Rights and Civil Liberties held a hearing on “confronting white supremacy.” This is part of the Democrats’ battlespace preparation for the 2020 elections. White supremacy is everywhere! Actually, it is hard to find. I have yet to meet my first white supremacist. But the Democrats have a story and they are sticking to it. Candace Owens was the only witness at the House hearing who was not there to advance the Democrats’ narrative.

    As he smiled for the camera, the young man must have felt the costume and make-up he was wearing were mere harmless fun: Just another night for a party boy who loved dressing up. In one snap, he’s elaborately costumed as Aladdin for an end-of-year ‘Arabian Nights’ do at a smart private school in British Columbia. His fellow teachers barely bothered to dress up for the 2001 event, but Justin Trudeau has gone for it, donning a white robe, theatrical turban and even dark make-up on his hands, face and neck.

    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau apologized again for wearing blackface on Thursday after two additional photos of him donning dark make-up emerged following an original, damning image of him at an Arabian Nights party. Trudeau first apologized on Wednesday night after a 2001 photograph of him emerged in brown face at an Arabian Nights party when he was a teacher. He also referred to a high school incident where he dressed up as Harry Belafonte to sing the Jamaican song Day-O. A photograph of the Day-O performance came out on Thursday morning but since then, a video of a third...

    The medical school at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center will stop considering race as a factor in admissions, per an agreement sought by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights to resolve a 2004 complaint. In the resolution agreement — which was signed in February and first reported by the Wall Street Journal this week — the medical school agreed to “discontinue all consideration of an applicant’s race and/or national origin” in the admissions process. Eric Bentley, vice chancellor and general counsel of the Texas Tech University System, said in an agreement letter that the medical school...
  • BET founder Robert Johnson on Trump: ‘I give the president credit for doing positive things’

    President Donald Trump has done “positive things” for the economy that have greatly benefited African Americans, said Robert Johnson, the successful Democratic businessman who started the BET television network nearly 40 years ago. “For African Americans, the trend continues to be favorable,” Johnson said Thursday on CNBC’s “Squawk Box.” “There used to be an old saying, ‘When White America catches a cold, African Americans get pneumonia.’ It’s going the opposite way now. White unemployment is going down, African American unemployment is going down. That’s a plus-plus that you can’t argue with.” “I give the president credit for doing positive things;...

    Philadelphia 76ers forward Mike Scott got into a fight with Eagles fans at Sunday's game against the visiting Washington Redskins after allegedly receiving racial taunts from tailgaters. A video was posted before Sunday's kickoff showing a person, apparently Scott, in a fight with Eagles fans outside the stadium. He did not appear to get hurt, and fans tweeted afterward that Scott took selfies with them. According to PhillyVoice, which interviewed around a dozen witnesses and reviewed video evidence, the incident began with playful ribbing, but turned ugly when some individuals directed racial slurs, including the n-word, at Scott.

    Papa John’s founder and CEO John Schnatter, in his first interview since stepping down amid controversy, told FOX Business in an exclusive interview with Maria Bartiromo on “Mornings with Maria” that he resigned because he was ready to retire. ...“There's never been any racial slurs," he said. "There has been never been any use of the word. That's probably been the most frustrating. That's not true at all. The call was 52 minutes and it was totally anti-racist. At the very end of the call, I simply stated what it was another founder said in the way he went about...

    We know a little more about the dust-up between Antonio Brown and Oakland Raiders general manager Mike Mayock and, not surprisingly, the details aren’t pretty. Brown saw Mayock, who sent Brown a letter informing him he’d be fined for missing a workout before the Raiders’ preseason game in Canada, watching practice on Wednesday. So during practice he initiated an argument with Mayock, according to ESPN’s Josina Anderson. During that argument, he called Mayock a “cracker,” Anderson reported. A day later the Raiders leaked a report that they were considering suspending Brown, who wasn’t at practice Thursday. The Raiders listed him...

    Former ESPN host Jemele Hill is being slammed as 'racist' and 'pro-segregationist' for urging African-American athletes to spurn predominantly white colleges in favor of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). In her first magazine piece for The Atlantic, Hill contends that black athletes are helping the fortunes of major universities like Michigan, Alabama, and Miami, while HBCUs have struggled to compete financially, both in the athletic department and in terms of overall endowment. HBCUs were established before the Civil Rights Act of 1964 in order to provide African-Americans a college education during an age of rampant segregation. There are more...

    The year of 2018 saw huge strides in diversity and inclusion in film — mainly because of the release of Marvel Studios’ Black Panther and the Warner Bros. rom-com Crazy Rich Asians. Although both features broke ground and were a watershed moment for the Black and Asian communities, it doesn’t mean everything is hunky-dory with the representation of underrepresented and marginalized communities in film. A new report from Professor Stacy L. Smith and the Annenberg Inclusion Initiative at USC’s Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism shows that there has been improvement toward inclusion but the needle could and should be...

    Trump supporters say they’re “tired of being called racists.” At a recent rally in Cincinnati, the Atlantic reported, white attendees defended themselves against the charge by citing the “evidence”: They had donated money to help black foster children; they deeply loved their black and mixed-race grandchildren. Shortly after rejecting the “racist” label, however, these same rallygoers made racist remarks to the journalist who interviewed them. Regarding Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), who came to the United States as a Somali refugee, one woman offered: “I don’t want her stinkin’ Muslim crap in my country.” Making racist remarks while claiming not to...

    This Wednesday marks the 56th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s iconic “I Have a Dream” speech. It was as historic as it was inspiring for all Americans to look to a future where our society would be one. While there’s certainly more work to be done on that front, there’s much to celebrate today about the great new opportunities for black Americans to achieve the American dream. I know that my uncle would have been proud of everything that President Trump has done to make those opportunities possible for our community. For instance, for the past two and...

    Beto O'Rourke, Woke Why did the Civil Rights movement succeed? It might have failed. In the U.S., unlike in South Africa, black Americans didn’t make up a huge, oppressed majority. They constituted just 11 percent of the population. Nor did they wield proportionate economic power — the heritage of slavery and Jim Crow had seen to that. They weren’t well-armed. Gun control laws, which always disarm the most helpless, had made quite sure of that. The militant approach favored by Malcolm X, and later the Black Panthers, certainly frightened white people. But it could have just as easily provoked...

    Teachers at Cherry Creek School District in Colorado were asked to take a “white privilege” survey to make sure that they “reflect on their own racial identity and to think about how their experience in the world shapes their identity.” A school district in Colorado asked its teachers to take a “white privilege” survey, according to a report by PJ Media. The worksheet asked teachers a bizarre series of questions that have nothing to do with race, such as, for example, “Because of my race and/or color… If I should need to move, I can be pretty sure of hassle-free...

According to WTVD, Kazeem was in his boxer shorts in the foyer of his house starring down the barrel of a Raleigh Police officer's gun. "This was one of the most humiliating experiences of my life," said Kazeem. Kazeem says a friend spent the night and tripped the alarm unknowingly.

    One of the great debates of the 2020 campaign will be whether the key date in defining America is 1619 or 1776. The left will assert that America is a terrible country and that its defining moment was the introduction of slavery. Most Americans will see that as a racist definition of history in its own right and will continue to believe in the exceptionalism created in 1776 by the Declaration of Independence and implemented in 1787 by the Constitution. This debate is being created by The New York Times’ determination to replace its failed crusade about President Trump and...

    What was the embittered left - Democratic presidential candidates and their media allies - supposed to do when their hopes of Russia-Trump collusion crashed on the boulevard of broken dreams? Pivot. They had invested so much in their fantasy that President Donald Trump was a treasonous agent of Russian boss Vladimir Putin. But when special counsel Robert Mueller’s report came out, and there was no collusion, no crime charged, their fantasy collapsed. And so, after a brief spasm of despair, the left pivoted to their default position: race. Race. Race. Race. Race. Race. With Americans working and with money in...
