    Netflix has secured a deal with former President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama to produce series and movies for the streaming service. The former first couple will, according to an announcement Monday from the company, potentially work on scripted and unscripted series as well as docu-series, documentary films, and features under the multi-year deal. "Michelle and I are so excited to partner with Netflix — we hope to cultivate and curate the talented, inspiring, creative voices who are able to promote greater empathy and understanding between peoples, and help them share their stories with the entire world.” Barack...

    Leading the way was race hustler Al Sharpton, the MSNBC host who carved out a very comfortable living for himself shaking down corporations. Speaking at a rally Saturday put on by his National Action Network, Sharpton took the lovely union of two people in love to say the royal wedding is proof that white male supremacy is coming to an end, the New York Daily News reported.

    Rev. Al Sharpton said Saturday’s nuptials between the U.K.’s Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, a biracial American actress, show that white male supremacy is “on its last breath.” "When you got little white girls in Wales saying, 'I want to be like Meghan,' there's a shift worldwide that white male supremacy is on its last breath," Sharpton said. Sharpton was speaking during his weekly National Action Network rally in Harlem as the couple were wed at Windsor Castle, The New York Daily reported. Etc...

    By bizarrely going after Sam Harris, Majid Nawaaz, and others, the once venerable organization has abandoned its core mission, focusing instead on dirty partisan politics Shortly after the election of Donald Trump in November of 2016, a lot of people I knew wrote biggish checks to the Southern Poverty Law Center. They weren’t alone: According to tax filings, the group took in $136 million last year alone, bringing its total assets to a whopping half-a-billion dollars.This surge in the organization’s popularity makes sense: The SPLC, after all, is the group that had once, nearly four decades ago, protected Vietnamese shrimpers...
  • Black reparations? Let's call the Democrats' bluff

    Now we are talking about reparations? Why now? Americans elected our first black president, gave him full control over both houses of Congress and high support from the press. Why didn’t Obama fight for reparations as president? It’s the same reason Democrats don’t really fight for DACA – they only want to use the issue. It is their technique to paint Republicans as anti-black. If Congress were to ask for reparations, it would really be great to see Trump out-Trump them again as he did on DACA. He should ask them to propose a bill for him to consider. This...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden recently told MSNBC's Rev. Al Sharpton that the GOP wants voter identification laws for one reason. Racist Republicans so despise blacks and are so determined to oppress them, that they seek to prevent all blacks from voting. Biden said: "It's what these guys are all about, man. These Republicans don't want working-class people voting. They don't want black folks voting." What Republicans "are all about," according to Biden, is the push in some states for voter ID laws, which Democrats call "voter suppression." Then-Attorney General Eric Holder characterized the call for voter ID laws as...

    The story of five black women who were asked to leave a York County golf course for reportedly playing too slowly is making headlines and causing outrage across the country. The group of regular golfers said they were confronted at the second hole by Steve Chronister, one of the owners of the Grandview Golf Course and a former county commissioner, who accused them of lagging and offered to refund their money if they would leave. They were the only African Americans or all-female groups on the course in Dover Township, according to Sandra Thompson, who posted a detailed account of...

    On Monday, political leaders and many media outlets shared thoughts and prayers for former first lady Barbara Bush, who recently left hospitalization so that she could spend the remainder of her life at home, surrounded by the comfort of loved ones. Some in the media however, couldn’t help but remind everyone of her supposedly tarnished legacy when it came to race relations in America, because if you’re a rabid member of the resistance, you can’t even wait one morning to attack a conservative’s character, even if she is at the point of passing on.

    During The Lead With Jake Tapper, former State Department spokeswoman and Obama communications director under President Obama Jen Psaki accused President Trump's new nickname for the former President, "Cheatin' Obama" of having racial undertones. President Trump, who has become known for branding opponents in both political parties with nicknames, finally unveiled a nickname for his predecessor. When pointing to a Rasmussen poll showing that he had a 50 percent approval rating, the President said that his approval rating was higher than that of “Cheatin’ Obama” at the same time during his presidency. Host Jake Tapper asked Psaki, now a CNN...

    Jihad scammers rightfully tossed out of court. You remember “Clockmed,” aka Ahmed Mohamed. Mohamed took apart an LCD digital clock and stuck it in a box. What he put together resembled a homemade bomb. Even though he admitted it looked “suspicious,” Ahmed brought it to school. When teachers and school administration officials became concerned for the safety of the students, they walked into Clockmed’s trap. Ahmed played the Islamofauxbia victim to the hilt. Lauded by President Obama, the Pope, 97 world leaders, the UN, hailed by NYC Mayor Bill deBlasio, who declared “Ahmed Day,” he became an enemedia icon and...

    Ava DuVernay, a black activist who directed a whole movie arguing that mass incarceration (a multi-racial problem) is a continuation of race-based slavery, suggested that racism explains why her latest movie, "A Wrinkle in Time," got bad reviews. DuVernay gave a back-handed compliment to Vulture's Kyle Buchanan, who wrote about the "subtle, resonant" theme of the black main character's insecurity about her hair. "You were the only Caucasian journalist of any gender to see it, understand it and seriously ask me about it. Appreciate the chat, the sensitivity and the writing," the director tweeted. snip) Hair is indeed a sensitive...

    MSNBC political analyst Nicolle Wallace suggested Thursday gun violence would not be a topic of discussion if “17 white kids” we’re not the victims of the Valentine’s Day massacre in Florida. During the segment, MSNBC contributor Eddie Glaude explained, “Every day, in certain communities, babies are walking to school having to deal with gun violence.” “Every day, in certain communities, certain parents are burying their children because of gun violence,” Glaude said.” And it’s all because … this gun culture that makes people money.” Following a brief rant by John Heilemann On “Deadline: White House” about “toxic masculinity,” Wallace stepped...

    White people who do a downward-facing dog are contributing to a “system of power, privilege, and oppression,” according to a Michigan State University professor.Shreena Gandhi, a religious studies professor at Michigan State, claims in an article she recently co-authored that Americans who practice yoga are contributing to white supremacy and promote the “yoga industrial complex.”White Americans should learn yoga’s history, acknowledge the cultural appropriation they engage in and possibly reduce the cost of yoga classes for poor people, a group that often includes people of color and “recent immigrants, such as Indian women to whom this practice rightfully belongs,” Gandhi...

    In an interview with USA Today, the former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-FL) said President Donald Trump’s alleged “shithole countries” comments were “racist.” Bush said, “When you call Haiti, whether it’s an ’s-house’ or an ’s-hole,’ I mean it really doesn’t matter, you disparage a lot of people that love this country that are here making a contribution and making a difference. Why? Why do you do that?”

    The Democratic Party have a tested and true playbook that is as predictable as the sunrise – when backed into a corner, cry racism. Last year, liberal college professors called racist everything from math, to the song “Jingle Bells,” to showing up on time. During the Obama administration, every policy disagreement was labeled racist. Now, pointing out the reality of living conditions in countries where people routinely risk their lives to flee is racist. And just like with every “problem” liberals find, they have a government solution for it. In the case of President Donald Trump and his “s-hole countries”...

    A black law professor argues that African Americans should embrace the notion that being black in America is a disability as a new legal strategy toward enacting protections for the black community against unconscious bias, stereotyping and structural inequality. Kimani Paul-Emile, an associate professor of law at Fordham University and associate director of its law school’s Center on Race, Law & Justice, argues that while Africans Americans might initially spurn the “blackness as disability” label, it can actually be a wise courtroom plan. The Americans with Disabilities Act defines “disability” as “a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one...

In the hours after The Washington Post's report surfaced, reporters and anchors on the major news networks called the president "evil," a "neo-Nazi," a "terrorist sympathizer," a "danger" to non-white Americans, and so, so much more.
