    The Democratic Party is looking to include reparations in their 2022 platform, along with Medicare for all United States residents, and free higher education that is fully paid for by American taxpayers. In an exclusive report by the Washington Free Beacon, Democrats and liberal donors are pushing for an even further left agenda by 2022. That agenda was revealed during the Democracy Alliance’s latest conference called “Way to Win: 2022 Victory Party,” which featured guests such as the Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) Chairman Tom Perez, former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, and Democratic Georgia candidate for governor, Stacey Abrams. The Free...

    Ok, I have to admit that he fooled me too.Liberal coffee and beverage corporation Starbucks has had a really, really tough week by anyone’s standards. The firestorm after the arrest of two black loiterers at a Philadelphia store led to the usual weeping and gnashing of teeth by racial grievance mongers who quickly bullied the chain into announcing a shutdown of around 8,000 of their stores for mandatory racial bias training.A viral video by a black man who goes by the handle Hotep Jesus made the rounds in which the man – whose real name is Bryan Sharpe –...

    A white Starbucks barista probably violated company policy when she handed over a free coffee to a black man who demanded it in the name of race “reparations.” Bryan Sharpe, who goes by “Hotep Jesus” on Twitter, filmed himself going into a Starbucks store to demand a “free coffee” because they’re “racist.” __________________________________________________ Starbucks is racist — Hotep Jesus 🧠 (@VibeHi) April 15, 2018 __________________________________________________ “I heard ya’ll was racist, so I came to get my free coffee,” Sharpe says in the video to the white barista taking his order. “I saw that!” the girls responds. “I heard you...

    Last Thursday, an employee at a Philadelphia Starbucks called the police on two black men who were waiting for the arrival of a business partner without having ordered anything at the counter. When police arrived, the men were arrested for trespassing. A bystander caught the encounter on video, which showed the men resigned to their fate as other white patrons protested the arrest, and the incident went viral. Starbucks is now in full-on damage-control mode, with plans to shut down its stores nationwide for an afternoon of employee unconscious bias training. Meanwhile, Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross said that the...

Example: “Hey, were you able to download the newest version of GradeQuick?” “Brothas just have so much swag.” “Huh?”

    A white North Carolina Democratic candidate brushed aside questions earlier this week about ensuring diversity in his state by saying he is a member of the black community. House of Representatives candidate Gary Shipman said he doesn’t need to worry about diversity because he has already experienced it as a member of the African-American community, reported The News & Observer Wednesday.
  • Black Political Power Means Zilch

    It's often thought to be beyond question that black political power is necessary for economic power and enhanced socio-economic welfare. That's an idea that lends itself to testing and analysis.Between 1970 and 2012, the number of black elected officials rose from fewer than 1,500 to more than 10,000. Plus, a black man was elected to the presidency twice. Jason Riley, a fellow at the Manhattan Institute, tells how this surge in political power has had little beneficial impact on the black community.In a PragerU video, "Blacks in Power Don't Empower Blacks," Riley says the conventional wisdom was based on the...

    Our wintry spring has impinged on my work life. Hustling through one nor’easter after another, I’ve not attended to news as much as I usually do. In spite of my relative inattention, two news stories resonated. National Public Radio sounded a familiar drumbeat: “Police shoot unarmed black man, father of two, in his grandmother’s backyard.” I heard those words, all carefully selected, repeated several times throughout the day, with the shrill, persistent urgency of a tornado warning. Tornado warnings demand that you abandon what you are doing and move to a shelter. “Police kill unarmed black man” demands that...

  • 'White American Bible Belt' Often Worshiped Racism and Called It Jesus Christ, Says Russell Moore

    Christian Post ^ | 04/04/2018 | Michael Gryboski
    Often in history, the "White American Bible Belt" paid homage to racism while calling it "Jesus Christ," according to prominent evangelical Russell Moore. Delivering a speech at the MLK 50 Conference in Memphis, Tennessee, on Tuesday, Moore drew a parallel between America's struggle for racial equality and the ancient Israelites being told to choose between serving God or serving Baal. "Time and time again, when told they could not serve both, the people of God tragically often chose to worship Baal but to rename him God," said Moore, president of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission. "And...

    ‘I am worried,” writes Harvard geneticist David Reich in the New York Times, “that well-meaning people who deny the possibility of substantial biological differences among human populations are digging themselves into an indefensible position, one that will not survive the onslaught of science.”Reich was responding to anticipated resistance to his forthcoming book, Who We Are and How We Got Here: Ancient DNA and the New Science of the Human Past. The “well-meaning people” Reich references are those who argue that race is a “social construct,” that there are no significant genetic differences among people of different racial ancestry. Maybe there...

The Spun once again hosted its now annual “Most Annoying Person In Sports Media” tournament, and defending champion Stephen A.

    I grew up in a Christian home, where a photo of Jesus hung on my bedroom wall. I still have it. It is schmaltzy and rather tacky in that 1970s kind of way, but as a little girl I loved it. In this picture, Jesus looks kind and gentle, he gazes down at me lovingly. He is also light-haired, blue-eyed, and very white. The problem is, Jesus was not white.

    People are uncomfortable with the term “privileged.” Several readers took offense recently when I differentiated between privileged youths and underprivileged youths in a column about the March for Our Lives. “Categorizing and generalizing of this type are just veiled forms of discrimination and/or racism,” one man wrote. I’d like to take this opportunity to set the record straight. If you are a white person in America, you were born privileged. That’s just a fact. It’s nothing to be ashamed of. It’s not anybody’s fault. There’s no need to get defensive about it. The best thing to do is just acknowledge...
