    Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) told CNN Tuesday that she believes President Trump “made clear” that “he wants basically white people” to come to the U.S. based on remarks he reportedly made in an immigration meeting last week referring to countries like Haiti as “sh**hole countries.”“He made clear that day that he met with Dick Durbin and Lindsey Graham that he wants basically white people to come to our country,” Hirono said. Sen. Mazie Hirono says Trump "made clear ... he wants, basically, white people to come to our country." https://t.co/HuVHNyjcUS— New Day (@NewDay) January 16, 2018 “It’s hard not to...

    'This is just an evil, evil man' Jan 12, 2018    The media reaction to President Trump using the word "sh*thole" to describe countries some immigrants are fleeing was swift, harsh, and ... hysterically hyperbolic. 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. To help keep track of it all, we've assembled the following compendium of the most unhinged media reactions to Trump's comments over the last 18 hours. 1)...

    Playing the race card won't pay the rent, but a good job will, in a booming economy I just love watching and reading liberal Washington Post and New York Times columnists rant and rave over what they perceive to be a racist and white supremacist president. These so-called experts see racism everywhere. Criticism of Obamas mediocre presidency is racist. Criticism of Obamacare is racist. Criticizing some Mexicans illegally crossing into America and engaging in rapes, murders and drug-dealing is also considered racist. And more recently, criticism of such failed and corrupt states as Haiti and certain African countries as sh*tholes...

    This article is part of the Opinion Today newsletter. You can sign up here to receive the newsletter each weekday. When it comes to President Trump and race, there is a predictable cycle. He makes a remark that seems racist, and people engage in an extended debate about whether he is personally racist. His critics say he is. His defenders argue for an interpretation in which race plays a secondary role (such as: Haiti really is a worse place to live than Norway). Its time to end this cycle. No one except Trump can know what Trumps private thoughts or...

Who could have anything bad to say about this?

You can see the thread here, but it's so good I'm going to preserve it for posterity in this post - because this is the sort of thing that gets people banned from Twitter these days. 1. Tamarisk trees in Palm Springs, California. 2. The ice cream truck song. 3. Credit scores. 4. Car insurance. 5. Crime statistics. 6. Halloween costumes. 7. Calling Elizabeth Warren "Pocahontas." 8.

    The New York Times has blasted France for shamefully caving in to racism after a prominent black journalist was sacked from a government-sponsored internet advisory body because of her controversial views. (President Emmanuel) Macron has tried to project the image of a forward-looking, inclusive leader. This is a blot on that image and highlights the pressing need in France for an open debate on racism, the newspaper wrote in an editorial. Rokhaya Diallo was sacked earlier this month from the National Digital Council (CNNum), prompting almost all its members to resign in protest from the body that advises the government...

    Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, who was accused by a United Airlines passenger of bumping her from a first-class seat, said in a Twitter screed on Tuesday that she believes the incident is all about race. Since this was not any fault of mine, the way the individual continued to act appeared to be, upon reflection, because I was an African American woman, seemingly an easy target along with the African American flight attendant who was very, very nice, the Texas Democrat wrote in a post. This saddens me, especially at this time of year given all of the things we...

    December 24, 2017 Daniel Greenfield Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D - Enron) is entitled to the privileges of her position. Like discriminating against the disabled and other people's airline seats. A judge has refused to dismiss a federal lawsuit accusing Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of discriminating against and mocking a disabled staffer charges the Texas Democrat denies. Mrs. Jackson Lees legal team sought to have the complaint dismissed, arguing in part that actions concerning her staff are protected under the Speech or Debate clause of the Constitution. In a lengthy ruling, the judge disagreed. And as a civil rights...

    (CNN)Parents like to see themselves as purveyors of possibility. We want our children to inhabit a world in which identities are both mutable and equal, and imagination and empathy reign supreme! But young children, as dictated by their tastes in popular culture, have something else in mind. They're drawn to worlds in which identities are fixed, order trumps imagination and transgressions are met with routine punishment. This clash between what parents desire for their children and what children desire for themselves is most easily observable in cartoon preferences. So often, the more parents dislike a show, the more their children...

    A row of 'racist' trees standing between an African-American neighborhood and a city golf course will be removed, local officials in Palm Springs, California, told neighborhood residents. On Sunday, Palm Springs Mayor Robert Moon told residents of the historically black Crossley Tract neighborhood that the city would remove the line of tamarisk trees and a chain link fence that runs between the neighborhood and the Tahquitz Creek Golf Course, reports the Desert Sun. The decision to remove the trees and fence comes after neighborhood residents complained that the 50-foot tall tamarisk trees an invasive species that blocks views of...

    The Washington Post faced swift backlash on Twitter Sunday evening after tweeting White nationalists angered by Mexican immigrants acquittal in Kate Steinles killing. While yes, White Nationalists are in fact angry about the slaying and subsequent acquittal, they certainly arent alone and being angry doesnt mean that you are one. Angry Twitter users promptly seized upon the tweet to slam the outlet for their poor-taste in framing the issue: "So if you're mad a seven time convicted felon got away with murder you must be a white nationalist. " "You guys have been taking too many lessons from the...

    In his commentary "Unions ignore long history of excluding minorities from jobs," Missouri Rep. Shamed Dogan (R)highlighted past discriminatory practices in organized labors history as reason for implementing our states currently pending "right to work" law, along with other anti-worker measures such as ending prevailing wage and minimum wage requirements. To claim that unions continue to exclude minorities and are detrimental to working people is ridiculous and erroneous in the face of the facts. The truth is, enacting right to workand other anti-worker laws would only hurt the minority communities Dogan seeks to protect, by lowering wages, reducing benefits and...

    We didn’t go there, did we? I mean seriously? Did Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC), the third ranking member of the House Democratic Caucus, pretty much insinuate that the accusations against Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) shouldn’t be believed because the accusers are white? Conyers is under fire for sexual misconduct. In 2015, he settled a sexual harassment claim to the tune of $27,000 in taxpayer money. Melanie Sloan, a Washington lawyer, claimed to be the subject of verbal abuse by Conyers, even walking into his office to have the Michigan Democrat half-dressed. She has not alleged any sexual harassment, but Deanna...

    It was the thick of Black History Month and I worked as an art administrator for a program in Baltimore City. The site I was assigned to was managed by a white woman who cloaked her racism with a bright smile and photos on Facebook with Black students that garnered ooos and ahhs from the white liberal peanut gallery in the comment section. I once told her that since we celebrated Latinx Heritage Month, that we should celebrate Black History Month with our students. Her response, dripping with anti-Blackness, was that celebrating Black History Month would be too overwhelming. I...

Rev. Jamie Johnson was appointed in April to lead DHS Center for Faith-Based & Neighborhood Partnerships, which works with churches and community organizations on disaster response.

    The theory goes that Trump was the only politician to speak to the working classs financial fears, exacerbated by the daunting forces of globalization, immigration and mechanization. This ignores Trumps overt sexist and racist appeals during the campaign and repackages them as legitimate economic grievances. In this world, it wasnt Trumps conflation of Mexican immigrants with rapists that motivated his supporters; it was his criticism of the North American Free Trade Agreement and the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

    Austin Mayor Steve Adler announced he will not participate in this years Veterans Day Parade, held Saturday on Congress Avenue, because some groups signed up to march will be carrying the Confederate flag. Veterans Day should only be about honoring United States Military Veterans, Adler said in a statement Thursday morning. Symbols of racism, Civil War secession, and white supremacy should not be forgotten or erased, but they need to be remembered and studied in museums and classrooms not cheered and applauded in parades.
