    They gathered at the Beverly Wilshire, the men in tuxes, the women draped in evening gowns. The finest black talent in Hollywood was there that night in 2002, Quincy Jones, Samuel L. Jackson, Morgan Freeman, James Lassiter, Doug McHenry and Sean "P. Diddy" Combs among them. It was an annual gathering held at one posh hotel or another on the eve of the Academy Awards. Officially, it was called the Tree of Life Awards. But most people called it by its informal name: the Black Oscars.

    There is a dangerous silence which currently exists among polite and public company in America today regarding the issue of race, a silence which is more dangerous than any perceived outrage by any of the parties which have a stake in the outcome. As a white Christian Southerner -- and a white Christian American -- I know very few people who look like me who think less of black Americans simply because of the colour of their skin. I'm sure there are those who do; I just do not keep company with them. Likewise, I have many black Christian friends...

    Former University of Missouri President Tim Wolfe, who resigned from his post amid protests over the school's handling of racial matters on campus, sent a confidential email to supporters last week complaining about the incident. In the email, which was leaked to local media, Mr. Wolfe compiled a list of people he believed made it impossible for him to keep his job at the university, including outgoing Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin, ex-Mizzou football coach Gary Pinkel and the players that joined a strike, and an unnamed "significant Ferguson protester," most likely a reference to Black Lives Matter activist DeRay McKesson....

    Does American University want to teach students about oppression, or does it want to subject them to it? Members of the Washington, D.C.-based private university’s faculty are engaged in the process of “reimagining” the university’s core curriculum: the courses that all students, regardless of major, must take in order to graduate. Core curriculums are a way for universities to make sure that everyone on campus absorbs a common set of skills and values deemed fundamental to a liberal arts education—they often include basic instruction in writing, history, and mathematical reasoning, for instance. American plans to modernize its curriculum by 2017,...

    The Oscar Blackout protesters are peddling a neurotoxin to African Americans. "You are helpless", they insist. "Organized and all-powerful white supremacists control every detail of life. You can do nothing to create art. Your only hope is to note every moment when white people appear to have more than you. Rage against and envy that greater amount of something. The more angry and destructive the protest, the better. Think Ferguson, think Baltimore. Shame, mock, and vilify whites. Only then can the good things of life be yours." This message ruins lives.

    Many white Americans like to believe the United States is a country with a level playing field, where everyone has a fair chance of making it. But a recent Bloomberg article states that race has a lot to do with your economic success. Bloomberg gathered data from economists at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. Writer Victoria Stilwell also posed the question: Would it be possible to calculate the odds of being a millionaire for anyone in the U.S., based on age, education and race? The economists, who had already conducted extensive research on the subject, found that race...

    Lou Holtz once said, "Don't tell your problems to people: eighty percent don't care; and the other twenty percent are glad you have them." Unfortunately, Lou Holtz is a man out-of-step with our whiny age. Today, people will not shut up about their problems. They want to let you know about every issue they have, every "microaggression" and every time they're offended. It's a bottomless sea of discontent. Worse yet, our generation of complainers never seems to blame themselves for their own problems. Instead they've picked out a group of designated fall guys that it's always okay to blame for...

Rampling entered the debate early on Friday saying that plans to boycott the Oscars were misguided and calls to get more minority nominees were 'anti-white racism'.

    At least one thousand students skipped New Trier High School's mandatory day of "racial identity" classes on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. The suburban Chicago high school, which ranks among the top public high schools in the country, held class on the public holiday, and scheduled seminars on "systemic racism" that sought to increase students' awareness "of their own racial identities and the identities of others." But students stayed away in droves.

    Last week Bernie Sanders was asked whether he was in favor of “reparations for slavery.” It is worth considering Sanders’s response in full: No, I don’t think so. First of all, its likelihood of getting through Congress is nil. Second of all, I think it would be very divisive. The real issue is when we look at the poverty rate among the African American community, when we look at the high unemployment rate within the African American community, we have a lot of work to do.

    Last July, Anthony Hervey, an outspoken black advocate for the Confederate flag, was killed in a car crash. Arlene Barnum, a surviving passenger in the vehicle, told authorities and the media that they had been forced off the road by a carload of "angry young black men" after Hervey, while wearing his Confederate kepi, stopped at a convenience store en route to his home in Oxford, Mississippi. His death was in no small part caused by the gross level of ignorance, organized deceit and anger about the War of 1861. Much of the ignorance stems from the fact that most...

    This is the full text of Enoch Powell's so-alled 'Rivers of Blood' speech, which was delivered to a Conservative Association meeting in Birmingham on April 20 1968. The supreme function of statesmanship is to provide against preventable evils. In seeking to do so, it encounters obstacles which are deeply rooted in human nature. One is that by the very order of things such evils are not demonstrable until they have occurred: at each stage in their onset there is room for doubt and for dispute whether they be real or imaginary. By the same token, they attract little attention in...

"Brothers who have successfully fled to Black neighborhoods should be protected against police brutality by the righteous defense of our turf," Stokes asserted. "We need to take heed of how Muslim communities in cities in Europe have defended their turf from the intrusion of infidel police.

    Imperial College London has found that two networks of genes determine whether people are intelligent or not so bright. Genes which make people intelligent have been discovered and scientists believe they could be manipulated to boost brain power. Researchers have believed for some time that intellect is inherited with studies suggesting that up to 75 per cent of IQ is genetic, and the rest down to environmental factors such as schooling and friendship groups. But until now, nobody has been able to pin-point exactly which genes are responsible for better memory, attention, processing speed or reasoning skills. Now Imperial College...

Blumstein said that the University of Texas-Austin thought that it can use "race as a proxy for characteristics" in their admissions process. However, the first Fisher v. Texas case "drew a line [with] no special preference" for race and sent the case back down the legal system until the recent...

NCAAP spokesperson Shakeel Infante maintained that "forcing an African-American woman to bear a baby she doesn't want negates the promise of freedom we are striving to implement in this country. Motherhood has burdens. Forcing those burdens on an unwilling woman is slavery, pure and simple."

At oral argument, Justice Scalia said: There are those who contend that it does not benefit African-Americans to get them into the University of Texas...

The building is named after Clyde A. Lynch, who was president of Lebanon Valley College from 1932 until his death in 1950.

The pattern, detected in a recent study by researchers at the University of California, San Francisco, is almost entirely driven by low-income patients. The non-poor don't show much change in admissions at all. The researchers suspect this trend may point to an underlying challenge for the poor: Food stamps, given out in a lump sum at the start of each month, run out for many families before they reach the...

By virtue of existing, my kind if responsible for all the injustice in the world. Wars splintering apart Mesopotamia? Famine raging in Africa? Poverty in Latin America? All my fault. White colonialism has ransacked the entire globe, leaving it razed and destitute. All the world’s problems, from hunger to strife to impoverishment, fall squarely on the back on the white man. And those are just the issues that affect people beyond America’s borders. On...

    Donald Trump's highly publicized meeting with a group of black pastors was met immediately with reactions ranging from skepticism to condemnation. Critics were immediately justified when numerous individuals on Trump's "endorsement" list spoke out to clarify that they had only agreed to meet with the real estate mogul turned presidential candidate, rather than agreeing to endorse him. Those who did lend their names to the Trump candidacy were predictably branded sellouts. But what was missed in all the name calling and outrage was the overall necessity of Trump's move, even if it was poorly executed. Trump recognizes what Romney did...

    About 15 per cent of the city’s black infant deaths are the result of unsafe sleeping conditions: placing the baby stomach down, using loose blankets rather than a secure sheet, and letting the baby share a bed with his or her parents. This, in theory, is very fixable stuff, and the mayor and his partners have been trying.

    I remember once hearing a question posed by some would be philosopher: "If you could do something that cured all of the ills of the world, but only if someone you despised would get the credit, would you do it?" It's an interesting question with a number of elements to it. Are you really a humanitarian or do you just want to be seen as such? What's more important, your legacy or the lives of others? Are you able to overcome petty jealousy for the "greater good"? Of course as it's a hypothetical question you can answer and gain all...
  • “Delusional Fools” Attack Police For Taking The Colorado Springs Shooter Alive

    I've noticed the same comments on social media that I suspect many other have about the capture of the man responsible for the shooting from (not of) the Planned Parenthood location in Colorado Springs. Three people were killed and nine wounded in the attack, including one police officer who was killed and four more injured attempting to save citizens who were taking fire. Very opinionated but very ignorant people have claimed that the shooter was taken alive because he was white, and also claim that if he was a minority, that police would have gunned him down. These idiots-let's call...

    Allow me to generalize: no. The answer is no. No, Yale is not a hotbed of racism. Neither is Dartmouth. Neither is Columbia. Neither is Princeton. No reasonable person of color on any of these campuses really believes that he suffers interminable racial discrimination sanctioned by such institutions. The best inducement to cathartic rage the Ivy Leaguers can find is strips of black electric tape on some old portraits (unclear whether it's a hoax) or the last name of one of the more progressive Democrats in history. You know you're desperate when your slogan is "We Will Not Surrender...
