  • Racism Is Only Racism If It Comes From Groups the Left Hates

    05/10/2017 10:34:52 AM PDT · by Cubs Fan · 6 replies
    This week, an odd tweet appeared in my mentions from verified Twitter users — users prominent enough to be granted a blue check mark by Twitter itself. This one came courtesy of a rapper named Talib Kweli Greene. I'll admit I'd never heard of Greene until he appeared in my mentions calling me a "racist ass." It turns out Greene is a rapper with well over 1 million Twitter followers and a long history of "social activism." A quick search of Greene's Twitter feed showed a wide variety of instances of the rapper calling people "white boy" and "coon." He...

  • Clemson ‘Diversity’ Training: Time Is Culturally Relative, Expecting Promptness Is Racist

    Cybercast News Service ^ | April 14, 2017 | 1:38 PM EDT | Craig Bannister
    Clemson University’s ‘diversity education and training” teaches employees that every “cultural perspective regarding time” is equally valid, so it’s wrong to expect people to be prompt. Clemson is spending $26,945 on “diversity education and training” for its faculty members. […] In one slide, employees are taught that tardiness is acceptable because the concept of time is culturally relative. Thus, every culture’s perception of the actual time must be respected — since one “cultural perspective regarding time is neither more nor less valid than any other.” …

  • April Ryan, Maxine Waters and now Susan Rice: Black Women the Natural Enemy of Trump

    The Root ^ | April 4, 2017 | by Jason Johnson
    Nature shows us many examples of ‘natural enemies’ in the wild. Which explains why Trump-era republicans are lashing out at any black woman they can find, whether it’s White House reporter April Ryan, Congresswoman Maxine Waters and now former National Security Advisor Susan Rice. Trump-era republicans hate and fear black women, and they’re convinced their downfall will be at the hands of a black woman’s pen, policy or protest. This is not some essentialist “black queen as savior of our men” polemic masquerading as commentary. It’s a stone cold fact that while many Americans are waking up to the havoc...

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XzbJn2UAoIs He was Major League Baseball's first superstar. The first man ever inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. And he still has the game's highest career batting average – .366 – almost 90 years after he retired. His name is Ty Cobb. Yet, despite his historic achievements, he is often remembered for being the worst racist and the dirtiest player ever to take the field. If you know baseball, you've heard the stories: Ty Cobb would pistol-whip black men he passed on the street. He once stabbed to death a black waiter in Cleveland just because the young man...

    An influential activist who met with members of the Obama Administration to promote net neutrality campaigned on behalf of a convicted Al Qaeda supporter, Breitbart Tech can reveal. Evan Greer is the campaign director for Fight For The Future, which led grassroots efforts to promote net neutrality to the Obama Administration. Her writing has appeared in The Guardian, and she describes herself as a “touring queer riot-folksinger.” For three years, she also campaigned on behalf of Tarek Mehanna, an open admirer of Osama Bin Laden who was convicted of aiding al-Qaeda in 2012.Mehanna was convicted in 2012, after prosecutors proved that in 2004...

    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 didn’t even realize the subtle racism hidden in our health facts.” But … aren’t our dietary guidelines science? And aren’t progressives all about science, especially in this Age of Trump? Apparently not when “there is a deep-rooted [American] tradition to suppress an entire...

    President Donald Trump’s aide Stephen Miller has been lurking below decks on the Trump administration’s ship of fools, staying out of sight as the Spicer-Conway-Trump circus occupies the public eye. But he just made a crucial mistake that just catapulted him to notoriety. In this official photograph from the White House, Stephen Miller is making a white power symbol with his hands. Three fingers for “w,” the pinched thumb and index making the “p.” Miller is from Santa Monica, California, where even as a youth, the ultraconservative Miller “bemoaned the [high] school’s Spanish-language announcements, the colorful festivals of minority cultures,...

    A handful of ESPN personalities bared their claws Thursday in response to radio host Dan Le Batard’s Magic Johnson takedown, which at least one of his colleagues believed to be racially motivated. Debating Johnson’s 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, hasn’t proven himself in any of his careers outside of basketball. “What you’ve got here, though, is a testament to the power of fame. And a testament...
  • Dem rep: Steve Bannon 'is a stone cold racist'

    Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) on Friday accused President Trump's senior adviser Steve Bannon of being "a stone cold racist and a white supremacist sympathizer." 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...

    Congressional Black Caucus member Rep. Hakeem Jeffries has called presidential assistant Steve Bannon a “stone-cold racist.” Jeffries offered that description during an interview with Katy Tur on her MSNBC show yesterday in explaining why it would be “hard” for him to attend a meeting between President Trump and the CBC if Bannon were present. Joy Reid played the Jeffries clip on her MSNBC show this morning during a discussion of a possible meeting between the president and the CBC. April Ryan, the reporter that President Trump had requested, at this week’s press conference, to set up a meeting with the...

    Statement by AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka on the confirmation of Jeff Sessions as Attorney General: The AFL-CIO opposed the nomination of Jeff Sessions to be Attorney General because of the nominee's long record of working to undermine the rights the Attorney General must uphold. The very process by which he was confirmed—the silencing of Senator Elizabeth Warren for reading a letter from Coretta Scott King on the Senate floor--demonstrated what his nomination was really about. Now that he has been confirmed, Senator Sessions has the chance to show us wrong—to uphold the law and protect the Constitution, to protect all...

    Doug Adler does tennis commentary for ESPN. Strike that. Doug Adler used to do tennis commentary for ESPN. After several years working matches for the sports channel, the former tennis pro was advised that his services would no longer be necessary. Full disclosure. I've known Adler for 20 years. Before two back surgeries and a shoulder surgery put my tennis-playing days out to pasture, I hit balls with him at a neighborhood club. More precisely, he would hit the ball to me, and I would attempt to return it. At the club, Adler was well-liked. If there were a bad...

    The National Association of Black Journalists is slamming NBC for Tamron Hall's abrupt departure on Wednesday, accusing the network of “whitewashing” to make way for Fox News star Megyn Kelly’s arrival. NBC hired Kelly away from Fox earlier this year in a deal that may have led to Hall’s 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...

    Sally Boynton Brown, a white woman running for chair of the Democratic National Committee, said Monday that if she is chosen to lead the party her job will be to “shut other white people down.” “My job is to shut other white people down when they want to interrupt,” Brown said during a DNC candidate forum. Brown, the executive director of the Idaho Democratic Committee, is running for the chair position against six other candidates, including three African-American candidates and one Hispanic, former Labor Secretary Tom Perez.

    Candidates aspiring to take over as chairman for the Democratic National Committee met Monday night to discuss what went wrong in 2016 and how to get the party back on track. Early into the event the candidates gravitated toward a particular scapegoat for the party’s poor showing in November: Political consultancies owned by white people. “We have to stop, particularly with the consultants,” said the chairman of the South Carolina Democratic Party, Jaime Harrison. “You cannot come to the DNC and get a contract and the only minority face you have is the person answering the phone.” Minority consultants “need...
