    RUSH: We obviously start in Baltimore today with the Baltimore state attorney, Marilyn Mosby, a press conference a little over an hour ago, announcing that six officers are going to be charged with varying degrees of second-degree murder and manslaughter in the transportation death -- ah, ah, ah -- in the death of Freddie Gray. Now, many people are wondering what is really going on here. I would like to explain to you. I would like for somebody else to explain to you in one sound bite what is going on here.

    Today's predictable "Baltimore! Oh Baltimore!"editorial in the Wall St. Journal (The Blue-City Model) comes to an obvious conclusion with the old policy bromides the Journal's editors always slather on: Of late the progressives have been making a comeback, led by Bill de Blasio in New York and the challenge to sometime reform Mayor Rahm Emanuel in Chicago. This week’s nightmare in Baltimore shows where this leads. It’s time for a new urban renewal, this time built on the ideas of private economic development, personal responsibility, “broken windows” policing, and education choice. All of which would lead sensible people -- those...

    Rep. Bobby Rush (D-Ill.) took to the House floor Tuesday night to urge African-American mothers follow the example of a Baltimore woman who forced her son to leave the city's riots. Video of Toya Graham slapping her son for participating in the Baltimore riots went viral. Rush, a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, said mothers of African-American children should use their "awesome powers" to push back against violence. "I would like to make a special appeal to African-American mothers across this country. That they begin to use their awesome powers to take back our streets from the daily violence...

    During his press conference today, President Obama addressed the violence in Baltimore, claiming his political agenda would help solve some of the problems found in impoverished urban communities, such as the one where the violence occurred. “There’s a bunch of my agenda that would make difference right now in that,” he said, calling for more funding for early education, criminal justice reform and job training. Obama criticized members of Congress for blocking his agenda items, but encouraged Americans to do some “soul searching” during his joint press conference with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe this afternoon. “I’m under no illusion...

    It turns out that the person who has been posting "whites only" stickers around Austin, Texas is actually a liberal "social justice warrior" looking to bring attention to the racism of whites. These stickers had been posted around stores in Austin: For days no one knew who had posted them and why could only be speculated. The answer has been solved today: the stickers were posted by Austin lawyer Adam Reposa who did it to point out the "gentrification" of Austin and the displacement of minorities. “They’re getting pushed out, and pretty quick.

    Holder Frames Ferguson PD For Racism Using Bogus 'Disparate Impact' Stats 03/05/2015 Racial Politics: Unable to pin racism charges on Ferguson policeman Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown, Attorney General Eric Holder is using half-baked data to manufacture a case of racism against his entire police force. Holder's race-baiting civil rights crew combed through several years of Ferguson Police Department data on traffic stops, searches and arrests and "found a pattern of racial disparities in Ferguson's police activities." "African Americans are overrepresented in FPD's vehicular stops" and victims of "racial bias," Holder concludes in his report. He...

Obama said that while he has had extraordinary opportunities, “there were moments in my life where I’ve been treated differently because of the color of my skin.” As he touted the importance of religious tolerance, he noted the persistent false rumors that he is a Muslim, not a Christian. “There have been times where my faith has at times...

Asked in an NPR interview set to air starting Monday whether the nation is more racially divided than six years ago, Obama said "No." "I actually think that it's probably in its day-to-day interactions less racially divided," Obama told "Morning Edition" host Steve Inskeep. Excerpts of the interview were released before broadcast by NPR. A majority of Americans, 53 percent, believe that race relations have worsened under America's first black president, compared to 36 percent who say they have stayed the same...

Addressing Democratic donors at a fundraiser in Rhode Island and another in New York, Obama said Republicans had realized that blocking all progress led Americans to become cynical about government. Republicans consider that "a pretty good thing" because they don't believe in government to begin with, Obama said.

All we do know about Michael Brown is really he was shot unarmed six times." “It seems to me that the police act as judge, jury, and executioner, and even on the worse scenario, if [Brown] hit [Wilson] on the face, does...

Jackson had called Brown’s death a “state execution” and linked it to a pattern of law enforcement violence against African Americans, violence that almost always goes unpunished. Carson responded that the incarceration and violence in black communities was largely a matter of personal responsibility, not racial disparities. “If you take race out of the issue altogether...

When it comes to race relations, a similar rule applies. 400,000 civilians have been murdered in Darfur, but one death of a black man in Missouri, allegedly due to white police brutality, is infinitely more newsworthy. The national media are currently obsessed with Michael Brown's killing by a policeman in Ferguson, Missouri, just as they obsessed over Trayvon Martin's killing in Sanford, Florida. Our media...

    Every big-city mayor and police chief in America — including the guys from Chicago — are watching what is happening outside of St. Louis, in the town of Ferguson. Ferguson was once a white suburb. Now it is predominantly black. And it's hurting. A young African-American man, Michael Brown, is dead, shot by police. In the days since there have been anger, rioting, looting and, of course, the politics of race. And the thug behavior of the looters accomplishes something else: It helps lock Americans into various camps from which we're comfortable listing grievances and condemning the behavior of others.

    The making of the Black man into Public Enemy Number 1 began long before a rainy, dark night in a gated Florida community where a White person with a gun would be seen as a gun enthusiast -- a Second Amendment scholar -- but a Black man with a gun could only be a thug. Where an unarmed innocent did not know that he had no rights to innocence. Where a Black child’s skin convicted him on sight. Trayvon Martin had to be guilty of something so George Zimmerman’s defense attorney charged him with being armed with a sidewalk. The...

    “Elected six times to the House from the state of Georgia, Cynthia McKinney cut a trail through Congressional deceit like a hot ember through ash. She discovered legislators who passed laws without reading them… [and] black-skinned individuals shilling for the white status quo. She excoriated government lassitude over Hurricane Katrina… [and] held the only critical Congressional briefing on 9/11… She read truth into the Congressional Record, held town hall and hearings, led protests, showed up while others played along to get along... This is the Cynthia McKinney saga as it stands to date—what she saw, what she learned, and how...

    Sebelius: Obamacare Opponents Are Like Segregationists By Andrew Johnson July 22, 2013 4:20 PM As Andy McCarthy noted in his column over the weekend, during her speech to the NAACP last week, Health and Human Services secretary Kathleen Sebelius likened opponents of the Affordable Care Act to opponents of desegregation. She also tried to draw similarities between the creation of Medicare and Medicaid and the enactment of civil-rights legislation from the same era. “What we heard back then is what we’re hearing now, the same arguments against change, the same fear and misinformation that opponents used are the ones opponents...

    If Tom Wolfe were writing The Bonfire of the Vanities today, he'd need a scene in the Grand Havana Room in New York City. It's an Olympian den fit for what Wolfe called "Masters of the Universe" -- the super-rich gods of finance who today go by "the one percent." Taking up the penthouse floor of 666 Fifth Ave., the Grand Havana Room is a private, by-invitation-only cigar club and four-star restaurant. Through its windows, you can see the toiling salary men 39 floors below as they scurry about like ants, some furtively smoking in doorways, ever fearful of Nanny...

    It’s hard to describe the days following last weekend’s Zimmerman verdict as educational, but we have surely learned some things. Some are uplifting, some downright depressing. But for what they are worth, here are my ten top takeaways from a crazy week: 1. Sometimes, even in these cynical times, a jury gets it right. Here in the era of O.J. and the $3 million hot coffee civil suit, it is easy to grow jaded about the failings of our human jury system. But on rare occasions, under the harsh glare and pressure of public scrutiny, jurors will gather and surround...
