    WASHINGTON – Academy Award-winning actor Denzel Washington said it’s up to the American people to “ask questions about each other and engage” as a way to improve race relations in the country because the U.S. president cannot “legislate love.”Washington also had a direct message for anyone wondering which candidate he voted for in the 2016 presidential election: “None of your business.”Washington’s comments were his first since he was the subject of a false article that claimed Washington shocked Hollywood and endorsed Donald Trump for president.The post was shared more than 22,000 times on Facebook before being removed.Politifact and BBC...

    The American Conservative ^ | December 2, 2016 | Robert Verbruggen
    A bit before Thanksgiving, John Lott and Carlisle Moody of the Crime Prevention Research Center released new research on race and police killings, finding, among much else, “no statistically significant difference between killings of black suspects by black and white officers.” It’s received a handful of light, friendly writeups in conservative outlets while being ignored in the mainstream media. That’s a shame, for two reasons. One, the study rewards careful, critical reading—I often found myself pausing to consider exactly how Lott and Moody had set up their analysis and what, precisely, we can infer from the results. And two, the...

    More white Americans are now dying than being born in a third of U.S. states, according to a study released Tuesday, which shows white deaths outpacing births in a record 17 states stretching from California to Maine. The study, by the University of New Hampshire, found natural decreases in the white population across 17 states in 2014, including Florida, New Mexico, Pennsylvania and West Virginia, which together comprise 38% of the U.S. population. That’s a big shift from 2004 when only four states had more white deaths than births. The declines, exacerbated by the Great Recession, are largely driven by...

A celebrated film about a boy growing up gay, black and poor in Miami, “Moonlight,” virtually swept the night, taking best feature, best screenplay, a special jury award for best ensemble and the audience award. The Gothams, which honor independent film, are essentially the kick-off to Hollywood’s long awards season.

    Okay, the media failed supremely in not realizing Americans could elect an empty-headed, knee-jerk liar as President. But, still, I say the greatest media shortcoming of the past half century was not recognizing that Fidel Castro was the most dedicated and powerful proponent of racial justice the world has ever known. Castro's commitment to black Americans was shown early on, notably in 1960, when he came to New York City fresh from his leftist revolution in Cuba, and sat with Malcolm X in Harlem, cameras clicking for all the world to see.

    For college students especially, American Thanksgiving might be one of the best holidays of the year. Free food and childhood nostalgia can easily eclipse its dirty origin story. In truth, Thanksgiving has racist roots that are widely ignored by the American public. The glorification of colonialism and stereotyping of Native Americans should make anyone, regardless of race, pause and consider the cultural racism that has been a part of our childhood socialization.

    There are many toxic aspects of multiculturalism but one of the most wicked concerns the way it has brainwashed the majority of white people to be ashamed of their own race on some level. Even proud white patriots on the so-called alt-right who are strongly opposed to the relentless transformation of their nations have been infected by this brainwashing to some degree as you’ll now discover. It’s important to remember that multiculturalism is a deception created by Marxists to bring about the destruction of the capitalist West.

The fans claiming they watch less of the NFL cited the following reasons: • Protests by Colin Kaepernick and others • Lack of opportunity to watch the NFL...
