    This is a meltdown that took place on the radio yesterday. To set this up. Kim Wade is a conservative black talk show host in the Jackson area. David L. Archie is black and a "community activist". He ran for Hinds County Supervisor (Supervisors are like city council but for a county) and lost. He was in the Bennie Thompson black power crowd and loves to use the phrase "Uncle Tom". The incumbent he faced is black minister and a former fire chief.They ran all kinds of dirty ads on him. He was backed by whites and blacks and won...

    The cold-blooded Roanoke killer kept getting fired, kept threatening co-workers, and kept claiming he was the real victim. Vester Lee Flanagan claimed in a suicide note Wednesday that June’s massacre of black parishioners at a South Carolina church was “the tipping point” that sent him on the path to murdering two journalists on live television Wednesday. But in court papers and interviews with The Daily Beast, former colleagues describe Flanagan as a problematic employee, who was repeatedly reprimanded for his harsh treatment of coworkers, and complained racism was behind harsh evaluations of his work. “He just had a history of...

    Dinesh D’Souza, conservative author, movie-maker, columnist and pundit, took to Twitter to do some trolling on left-leaning pages and post some counter-views on the widely reported shooting deaths of two white television crew members by a black man – even suggesting President Obama better stand on the side of blind justice, not race-based politics. In reference to Vester Flanagan, the black former television journalist whose on-air name was Bryce Williams, D’Souza tweeted: “When a black gay guy goes nuts and kills white people, is it safe to call it a DOUBLE hate crime?” Flanagan, prior to killing himself, was believed...

    As his poll numbers steadily keep him in a comfortable first place in the crowded GOP field, and he packs stadiums—receiving raucous applause in Alabama and along the Mexican border—his fiery and divisive rhetoric has taken on a new meaning. His positions have now become the focal point of the GOP field and all candidates must respond to Trump before they can proceed. What he and his supporters say can no longer be considered a joke. During his rally in Mobile, Alabama screams of “white power” could be heard from the audience. And last week, two white ex-cons from Boston...

But not long into the trip train staff began asking them to quiet down. Before the journey was half over, they were escorted off the train, where police officers were waiting for them, according to the Associated Press. “We didn’t do anything wrong and we still feel this is about race....

Nine people were killed, and a white man has been charged in that rampage. The network cited Flanagan as saying he had suffered racial discrimination, sexual harassment and bullying at work. He had been attacked by black men and white women, and for being a gay black man, he said.

    Getting wine-drunk on a train in Napa Valley sounds pretty good if you're the guys from Sideways or the parents in Bob's Burgers, but it's apparently a lot less fun if you're a black woman with a loud laugh. A group of 11 women, members of the Sistahs on the Edge book club, were kicked off the Napa Valley Wine Train last Saturday for allegedly being too loud and disturbing other passengers—but the women say it was because of their race. One of the book club's members, Lisa Johnson, chronicled the event on Facebook, igniting an outcry across social media...

    Henderson State University in Arkadelphia, Arkansas, is facing accusations of racism after attempting to crack down on people wearing saggy pants on campus. The college has not officially banned saggy pants in its dress code, as the school has no official dress code, but signs warning that saggy pants will not be tolerated have gone up around campus and in the student center, the Daily Caller reported. A spokeswoman for the college, Tonya Smith, said that the signs, which also warn against profanity and rude behavior, were intended to discourage disruptive behavior on campus. “Our faculty in particular had experienced...

    Elections are supposed to be color-blind, but not under Obama Black Americans today receive preferential treatment in the realm of elections and voting rights because the Left needs them to acquire and keep political power. To left-wingers it’s 1815, not 2015. Blacks today are unquestionably full citizens unhindered by officially sanctioned discrimination, but to the Left there are still crosses burning in front of black families’ houses while residents cower in terror inside.

    Apple has always meticulously policed its content — especially in its App Store, where what gets uploaded and downloaded can be something of a free-for-all. Often, in the store or the iTunes library, a team from Apple will swiftly remove content for broken links, ugly design or even microscopic mentions of the company’s competitors. And yet racist and sexist apps and ringtones have remained for use and for sale — in some cases for years — despite clearly violating Apple’s policies prohibiting “defamatory, offensive (or) mean-spirited” content against religious, cultural or ethnic groups.

    The New York Times is playing the race card on Donald Trump. Surprise! In a front page story on Friday the so-called "paper of record" headlined the surging GOP presidential this way: "Donald Trump's Instinct for Racially Charged Rhetoric, Before His Presidential Bid." So, you might ask. What are Times readers about to discover in this latest liberal media hit piece on The Donald? We've now been through the media manufactured Trump/McCain crisis. In the aftermath his poll numbers went up, not down, as almost universally predicted by all with the solitary exception of Rush Limbaugh. Rush shrewdly understood that...

A post at The Right Scoop shows that this kind of moronic “analysis” wasn’t confined to MSNBC.

Chief Justice Roger Taney, appointed by Democrat President Andrew Jackson, wrote that slaves were “so far inferior … that the Negro might justly and lawfully be reduced to slavery for their own benefit.” After the Civil War, the 13th Amendment was adopted Dec. 6, 1865, abolishing slavery in America. Once Southern Democrats were forced to free their slaves, they attempted to effectively re-enslave them by passing “Black Codes” and “Jim Crow Laws” which...

One unsolved murder down, countless more to go. * Most pulling the triggers or wielding the knives are believed to be African American males, too.

The context of Gohmert’s remarks was the nationwide condemnation of the Confederate flag, leading to a congressional attempt to boot the banner from some federally managed properties. Gohmert first reminded the cause of the shooting at the Charleston, South Carolina, church that left nine dead...

Speaking at the new Whitney museum in New York City’s meat packing district last week, Obama said she grew up thinking that museums were not places “for someone who looks like me.”

    Depending on your perspective, President Obama's performance at the White House Correspondents Dinner Saturday night was either funny or filled with rage. Or perhaps it was funny about being filled with rage. Either way, there's no doubt that Obama, by incorporating comedian Keegan-Michael Key into his act, went public with the anger — specifically, the black anger — that has become part of the general conversation about Obama's time in office. Key and partner Jordan Peele do a Comedy Central routine in which Peele, playing Obama, delivers a calm, measured speech while Key, playing Obama's "anger translator," named Luther, acts...

Still, key policy positions — particularly his changing stance on immigration and his attacks on public sector unions — reveal a carefully directed appeal. In 2011, Walker successfully sponsored legislation repealing most collective bargaining rights for government employees.

The Georgia teen’s story story sparked outrage, and the hospital quickly reversed its decision, giving him priority on the transplant list.

    Comrades, glorious news! You can now upgrade your old, outdated Race Card™ to a Gay Card™! What's a Gay Card? Why, it's like the old fashioned Race Card, but on steroids. You see, the venerable Race Card is starting to lose its edge, and white people are becoming less and less prone to bouts of guilt, self-doubt, and introspective soul searching for deep, subconscious, genetically coded racist tendencies. In fact, some white people even laugh off the Race Card when it's presented. But those days are over! That's right, with the new Gay Card you can do anything the...

    A litany of prominent Democrats have said race has played a role in the delay of Loretta Lynch’s confirmation as attorney general. But the White House won’t say whether it agrees. Lynch would become the first African-American woman to serve as the nation’s top law enforcement officer, but she has gone 137 days without receiving a confirmation vote in the Senate. Press secretary Josh Earnest was asked five times Wednesday whether Republicans are delaying a vote on Lynch because of her race. He dodged the question each time. “I think that the delay we have seen from Senate Republicans...

    Ron Fournier is a columnist for National Journal and a cable news mainstay who served as the Associated Press' Washington bureau chief for years. In his new opinion-based role, he's worked to carve out a niche as a 'pox on both houses' purveyor of common sense, a detector of BS, a practitioner of intellectual honesty, and Chief of the Civility Police.  In that last capacity, Fournier expended much indignant energy denouncing Rudy Giuliani's acerbic commentary about President Obama's patriotism -- wrongly asserting that Obama would never say such nasty things about his political opponents.  Regardless of that particular blind spot, Fournier would likely tell you that he feels...

    Illinois Senator Dick Durbin took to the senate floor recently and showed once again that Democrats (and he personally) have no shame. The Illinois Democrat whipped out the race card to play over the Senate’s refusal to confirm Obama nominee Loretta Lynch as the next attorney general for the United States of America. Durbin, well known during the Bush Administration for his comparison of our troops serving at the Guantanamo Bay detention facility to the “Soviet Gulag, Pol Pot, and Nazi Germany”, is now comparing the actions of Republican senators to pushing Ms. Lynch to “the back of the bus”....

    Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin has a lot of nerve to accuse Republicans of racism for delaying President Obama’s nominee for Attorney General considering he’s the only sitting senator who actually opposed a candidate specifically because of race. In fact, the veteran lawmaker referred to the judicial nominee as “especially dangerous” for, among other things, being “Latino.” Additionally, Durbin has voted against several Republican presidential nominees who also happened to be ethnic minorities—Janice Rogers Brown, an African-American on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, the first African-American female Secretary of...
