  • #BlackLivesMatter Costs Black Lives

    National Review ^ | 09/03/2015 | David French
    The problem is so bad that even the New York Times is taking notice. There is, in fact, a sudden, sharp rise in murders in major American cities. The chart below is sobering: That’s a total of 330 additional murders, year-to-date, in just ten cities — with the three biggest percentage increases taking place in cities rocked by recent policing scandals. What’s different about this year? Why — after years of declining or stagnant crime rates — are more men dying in the streets? According to the Times, the “experts” have some rather unconvincing ideas. In Chicago, the police superintendent...

    It's time to expose the Black Lives Matter [BLM] movement for what it is: a racist, violent hate group that promotes the execution of police officers. The evidence is in their rhetoric and written on their shirts. If you take a look at the Black Lives Matter Twitter feed, you'll find photos of activists wearing shirts that say, "Assata Taught Me."  Looks like it's going down in Cleveland.

    In the past week, two television reporters in Roanoke, Va. -- Alison Parker and Adam Ward -- were murdered by a black man who hated whites, and a white police officer in Houston -- Darren Goforth -- was murdered by a black man. Neither crime has been labeled a hate crime. And no mainstream media reporting of the murders attributes either to race-based hate. For the mainstream media, the Roanoke murders were committed by "a disgruntled former employee," and regarding the Houston policeman, the media report that, in the words of The New York Times, "a motive for the shooting...

    A South Florida bus driver is upset after he was suspended from work for several days months after he was viciously attacked by a passenger. According to the victim, his employers told him he should have handled the altercation differently. Sixty-six-year-old Ken Legler was on his routine drive July 15 when a woman stepped onto the bus. Legler said she handed over her bus pass, but he noticed it had been tampered with and then called his dispatcher to inform them regarding the pass. "I've been a bus driver 28 years. This is the way I was trained to do...

    Remember Ferguson—Colin Ferguson, that is. This year was the 20th anniversary of the conviction of the lunatic who, two years earlier, had killed six people on the Long Island Railroad. And it’s significant, I think, that he’s remembered primarily as a lunatic—not as a black man on an anti-white crusade. The left is now filled (almost exclusively, it sometimes seems) with hair-trigger liar-propagandists happy to seize any opportunity to argue that the media constantly downplay crimes by white racists and play up crimes by blacks. On the contrary, I’ve worked in TV news at more than one network and can...

    In the present postmodern world, we are told that there is no such thing as a biologically distinct gender. Instead, gender is now socially constructed. It can be defined by the individual in almost any way he or she sees fit. In the old days, many clinical psychologists would have believed that Caitlyn Jenner — who first came to fame as Olympian Bruce Jenner — is experiencing a well-chronicled psychological state known as transvestism, or the innate pleasure in wearing the clothes and assuming the manners and appearance of the opposite sex. Jenner, however, identifies as transgendered. But even if...

N.W.A. helped popularize “gangsta rap” in the late 1980s, and even this hagiography can’t hide the fact that its legacy has endured to the detriment of poor black communities.

    It's the second coming of Rachel Dolezal. Shaun King, a prominent leader in the Black Lives Matter movement, may have just been outed as a white man. Boasting a vast following on Twitter, a title as justice columnist for a social progressive website, and acquiring a full-ride college scholarship from Oprah Winfrey to Morehouse (an award designated for black men) are the markings which have made King, 35, a go-to source for breaking news on police brutality against African-Americans around the country. But there seems to be one hitch: He isn't actually black, according to recent findings from conservative news...

    The rhetoric of "I feel" is the bane of truth. It allows for the creation of power structures based not on facts, but on feelings, based not on laws, but on attitudes. Obama's Ferguson address doesn't focus on the facts. It can't. Even his militant pal Holder couldn't find enough to be able to indict anyone. Instead the administration had to settle for lynching some city officials over politically incorrect emails. No gentle giant. No "Hands up, Don't Shoot". It was a lie. It was all a lie. Even Obama can't keep that lie going. He mentions the "tragic death...

    “Thank you, Seattle, for being one of the most progressive cities in the United States of America,” socialist-cum-Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders shouted to the large crowd in the City of Goodwill. Seconds later, two women with a local Black Lives Matter group jumped the stage, threatening to shut down the event. Quickly, they were rewarded for their extortion-by-tantrum. Sen. Sanders and company relinquished the microphone, podium and stage. Timber! That was the sound of Sanders’s “presidential timber” — his ability to stand up in the face of conflict — come crashing down. With a thunderous thud. Now, this is...

    Media and Democrats have pushed the idea that blacks suffer discrimination at the hands of whites, in particular white policemen who they say are all too happy to shoot a black man to death. The actual numbers do not bear this out, and police are in a position of being accused of racial discrimination no matter what they do. This week alone, a black woman tried screaming rape when pulled over, and was only found to be lying when the dash cam video showed nothing like that had occurred. This same black woman also was a professor at the local...

    WASHINGTON -- Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) says the proper way to address racial issues in America is by concentrating on what brings people together rather than focusing on "racial discord." Doing the latter, the presidential candidate argued Sunday, could risk generating even more unrest. Walker was campaigning outside a restaurant in Spartanburg, South Carolina, when a reporter asked him about the anniversary of the death of teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and what it portends for race relations in South Carolina. The governor answered that Americans should emulate the families of the victims of the Charleston church shooting....

A couple of years ago, Margaret Sanger was named one of Time magazine’s “20 Most Influential Americans of All Time.” Given her enduring influence, it’s worth considering what the woman who founded Planned Parenthood contributed to the eugenics movement. Sanger shaped the eugenics movement in America and beyond in the 1930s and 1940s. Her views and those of her peers in the movement contributed to...

Rubio told reporters that "decades and decades of discriminatory practices" have yielded a lack of economic opportunity for many minorities and sour relationships between law enforcement and minority communities, particularly African-Americans. "It's important for us to confront these issues because we can't fulfill our promise as a nation if we have a significant percentage of the population feeling as if the American dream is out of...

    The Social Memo ^ | 7/29/15 | Aurelius
    According to the University of Toronto Mississauga's student union, racism against whites simply does not exist. In a post published on the union's official Facebook page, the students claimed that "an oppressed group cannot be racist against a dominant group (white people)." The UTM student union added the "(white people)." The student union explained that minorities can't be racist towards whites because they do not hold a position of power. Yes, minorities can hate whites because of the color of their skin, but that is not racist. That's "prejudice," according to the group. You can see the post below:

    While there are going to be a lot of fond farewells to Jon Stewart, who will do his final episode of The Daily Show August 6, Wyatt Cenac has a much more complicated memory of the late-night host. Cenac, who was a writer and correspondent on The Daily Show for over four years, spoke with Marc Maron on his "WTF" podcast about what it was like working with Stewart. Maron asked, "And you got along with Jon?" "Naw," replied Cenac. While Cenac initially wanted to see Stewart as a father figure, he didn't get that. What he remembers instead is...

    Charles Haley is the only player in NFL history who's been a part of five Super Bowl winning teams, so it was no surprise in May when one of those teams, the 49ers, asked him to speak to their rookies. What might come as a surprise to some people though is what Haley said to those 49ers rookies. "As far as the rookies, and I know they probably got mad, but I said, 'Why don't you all act like the white guys? You never see them in the paper getting high or hitting people," Haley said, via the San Jose...

    A former Baltimore police officer said Wednesday that he plans to perform an Al Jolson routine in blackface to raise money for the six Baltimore officers who have been indicted in the death of Freddie Gray.
