    In an op-ed featured in the California State University-Long Beach student paper Daily 49er, Samantha Diaz follows up on stories about the silly usurpation of milk by white supremacists by arguing that yes, the dairy beverage really is racist. All of us have been so accustomed to hearing the benefits of milk, Diaz writes, that you probably didnt even realize the subtle racism hidden in our health facts. But arent our dietary guidelines science? And arent progressives all about science, especially in this Age of Trump? Apparently not when there is a deep-rooted [American] tradition to suppress an entire...

    A handful of ESPN personalities bared their claws Thursday in response to radio host Dan Le Batards Magic Johnson takedown, which at least one of his colleagues believed to be racially motivated. Debating Johnsons recent promotion to the Lakers president of basketball operations with co-host Jon Stugotz Weiner on his ESPN radio show Thursday morning, Le Batard sounded dumbfounded by the Lakers faith in their former star who, according to the talking head, hasnt proven himself in any of his careers outside of basketball. What youve got here, though, is a testament to the power of fame. And a testament...

Jeffries on Friday told MSNBC that any meeting between Trump and the Congressional Black Caucus must exclude Bannon. "We're looking forward to an open dialogue, but Steve Bannon should not be in the room," Jeffries said. Asked to elaborate on his position, he said that he does not wish to normalize Bannon. "Well listen he's a stone cold racist and a white supremacist sympathizer. It'd be hard for me to participate in any meeting with Steve...

NBC hired Kelly away from Fox earlier this year in a deal that may have led to Halls departure. She has co-hosted the third hour of the Today Show with Al Roker. NBC has been a leader for diversity in broadcasting, but recent reports that Hall and Roker will be replaced by former Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly are being seen by industry professionals as whitewashing, the group said...

    On Inauguration Day, America got an unsettling portrait of the smug, white, privileged blended clan now anchoring the White House. Throughout the inauguration hoopla on Friday, the newly installed president was flanked by his family. Trump glowered in his dark suit and peculiarly long red tie, taking the oath, speechifying, signing documents. Beside him all the while, Melania glimmered like a comely aquatic alien in her powder blue Ralph Lauren coat. The children were there too: Ivanka and Tiffany streamlined in suffragette-white, Don Jr. and Eric with identically slicked-back hair, Barron looking older than his 10 years. They seemed to...

Jeff Sessions began the defense of his nomination for Donald Trump's attorney general by emphasizing a theme of enforcing law and order and strongly pushed back against allegations of racism in his long career. Sessions also diverged from his prepared remarks to address "head on" the very allegations that helped sink his nomination for a judgeship in 1986. "I abhor the Klan and its hateful ideology," Sessions said. "I never declared the NAACP was un-American." Sessions also pledged to recuse himself from all investigations involving Hillary Clinton based on inflammatory comments he made during a "contentious" campaign season, and...

Barack Obama took office, and race immediately became a focal point in a way that was unprecedented in American history. No matter his accomplishments, he seemed destined to be remembered foremost as the first black man to lead the worlds most powerful nation. But eight years later, Obamas racial legacy is as complicated as the president himself.

Ricardo Rossello, 37, proposed several measures aimed at alleviating the crisis shortly after he was sworn in at midnight. Among them is a proposal to hold a referendum that would ask voters whether they prefer statehood or independence. Many have argued that Puerto Ricos political status has contributed to its decade-long crisis that has prompted more than 200,000 people to flee to the U.S. mainland in recent years.

Norris declared that Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan clearly had a racial component, since America was...

The result that Donald Trump will officially enter the Oval Office on Jan. 20 was affirmed by the Electoral College, an institution the Left is now casting as racist and anti-Democratic.

The interviewer, Chris Matthews, reacted to the hideous expression with amusement. Mr. Frank's image of Scalia as fag-burner dramatically illustrates what psychologists call a relational frame. His absurd and abusive statement is evidence that he is cognitively fused to a relational frame that is contextually functional for him. For years, left-wing ideologues like Frank have sounded mentally ill, in part because of their outlandish vilification of people they disagree with. The left wing...

After several years and long after the Bush-blaming had outstayed its welcome Obama finally found a new scapegoat. Suddenly, all of the administrations shortcomings had to do with a racist electorate. At one point Obama even claimed that racism holds all black people back, including his own family.

"That man called me boy," he finally told me, unprompted, while pointing his eyes toward an older white gentleman in blue overalls.

    Some Democrats are beginning to openly wonder if identity politics did them in on election day, and left them watching Donald Trump and congressional Republicans win the White House and keep control of Congress. The soul-searching seems likely to continue for months, possibly right up until the next election. But less than two weeks after their unexpected election day results, some are saying Democrats might be focusing too much on urban minorities and the targeting of various blocs, while ignoring the economic plight of working class votes in rural areas that the GOP overwhelmingly carried to victory. Sen. Bernie Sanders,...

  • CNN Guest Argues Trumps Drain the Swamp Rhetoric Is an Appeal to Racists

    11/22/2016 10:15:00 AM PST · by TigerClaws · 57 replies
    During an interview with CNN Tuesday, Southern Poverty Law Center senior editor Ryan Lenz claimed that president-elect Donald Trumps use of the term and hashtag Drain the Swamp was a dogwhistle intended as a subtle wink to white supremacists. Yesterday, Donald Trump released his 100-day plan on YouTube, and he announced some very thorough, specific things he was doing by executive action. And he referenced a phrase he said hes going to drain the swamp, Lenz noted. #DrainTheSwamp was a meme, a Twitter hashtag that grew exploded, really after Donald Trump came forward with allegations it was a rigged election....

    Donald Trump has repudiated the fringe "alt-right" group that celebrated his election win with Nazi salutes. In a far-ranging interview with the New York Times, the US president-elect was quoted as saying: "I condemn them. I disavow, and I condemn." He said he did not want to "energise" the group, which includes neo-Nazis, white nationalists and anti-Semites.

    On CNN's Michael Smercornish (@smercornish) Nov/18/16, law prof. Carol Swain and Civil Rights Atty Areva Martin debated about president elect Trump's pick of Sen. Jeff Session for AG. Carol Swain said something very simple: the democrats, on whoever is going to be picked, will charge at as being "racist." She added that we should look at his 20 yes in practice as a senator. To this Areva Martn tried to argue that Sessions was very hardline in immigration. As if it's something bad or "racist." I didn't get her point how this is connected.

    The CEO of the Wauwatosa-based company Penzeys Spices is drawing social media ire from conservatives and praise from liberals for his comments that Republicans who voted for President-elect Donald Trump "just committed the biggest act of racism in American history since Wallace stood in the schoolhouse doorway 53 years ago." The comments, sent in an email to Penzeys Spices customers and posted on the company's Facebook page, were apparently made in an effort to clarify a previous weekly email that CEO Bill Penzey sent to his customers. In that previous email, the very liberal Penzey who has...

    Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama is about to face a wave of intense scrutiny as he seeks confirmation to become attorney general and head the Justice Department in President-elect Donald Trump's upcoming administration. Trump said Friday that it was an "honor to nominate" a "world-class legal mind" to the position. Sessions said, should he be confirmed, that he will give "all my strength to advance" its "highest ideals" and will be dedicated to "fairness and impartiality." But Sessions is likely to face heavy examination over his overall record, as well as decades-old allegations of racism that are now certain to...

    Monday night in Austin, TX, at the screening for his film LBJ in an interview with FOX 7 Austin, liberal actor and director Rob Reiner said the victory of President-elect Donald Trump represents the final fight of the Civil War. Reiner said, Trump is hanging on to the what Ive said is its the last fight of the Civil War. Its the last gasp and the last throws of people who are just desperately hanging on to this kind of white nationalism that existed prior to LBJ passing the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act and all of...

    Anyone who is surprised at the appointment of right-wing guru Steve Bannon as the Donald Trump administration's chief strategist and counselor has been living in an alternate universe, the universe in which President-elect Trump would "pivot" into something resembling a mainline GOP conservative. And anyone who is amazed at Trump's temerity in putting a white nationalist into the White House has gravely misunderstood the power of racism in fueling his campaign, and the desire to "turn back the clock" to a time when white men supposedly ruled supreme. Above all, they've forgotten the cardinal rule of Trumpworld: attachment to profit...
