    Don Mullen: Why don’t America’s hotels provide hair products for black as well as white hair? Is there a way to get them to correct this “micro-aggression”? Jenée Desmond-Harris: Thanks for your question. I thought about the issue of hotel toiletries when I was writing the Race Manners column that answered the question, “Is Using Lotion a Black Thing?” In my opinion, the tiny moisturizer that most hotels provide is very clearly not designed for those who want or need to use it on their entire body (read: most black people). But off the top of my head, I’m not...

    Attorney General Eric Holder, in a recent interview, reiterates the theme heard from the very beginning of President Barack Obama's administration: opposition to Obama's agenda equals racism. "There's a certain level of vehemence, it seems to me, that's directed at me (and) directed at the president." What is Holder's proof -- to the extent that any is required? After all, following his election, Obama's favorable ratings reached nearly 80 percent, higher than any president-elect since John F. Kennedy. Obama, in 2008, received a greater percentage of the "white vote" than did John Kerry. Polls, studies and statistics, for Holder, aren't...

The discussion is part of President Barack Obama’s “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative, which the administration announced in February. That initiative created a task force including Duncan as education secretary, and is meant to develop proposals to “enhance positive outcomes and eliminate or reduce negative ones” for young black and Hispanic men.

It is similar to the debate regarding the “N” word as some believe it is only a problem when white people use the term,...

    Few mixtures in American life are more emotionally combustible than the one formed by the combination of politics and race. That helps explain why Democrats, in general, and President Obama, in particular, have tended to steer clear of overtly raising race as an issue to explain some of the opposition to Obama's presidency and agenda. There seems to be a shift in recent days, however. Top Democratic party officials have either directly or indirectly blamed race for some of the hostility to Obama, his policies, or both. Is this partly about activating minority voters during a midterm election year in...

Every roadblock the government erects makes those dreams slightly less possible. And, those roadblocks aren’t tripping up the lavishly rich. In this case, an unnecessary regulation in Mississippi was keeping hundreds of working- and middle-class black women from making a living doing something their community wanted to pay them for— hairbraiding. One woman fought for seven years to change that. The result is pretty much the whole reason I believe what I believe.I’ve known this...

    March 17, 2014 Corrupt Pennsylvania officials caught in sting are all black Democrats Dr. Eowyn This would be funny if it weren’t so disturbing.Angela Couloumbis and Craig R. McCoy report for The Philadelphia Inquirer, March 16, 2014, that a 3-year undercover sting operation by the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office captured five state officials on tape accepting money. All five corrupt officials not only are Democrats, they’re also black.Yet no one was charged with a crime.Prosecutors began the sting in 2010 when Republican Tom Corbett was attorney general. After Democrat Kathleen G. Kane took office in 2013, she shut it down,...

    Charlie Crist, a former Republican governor of Florida (now running for the position as a Democrat), was asked on “The Colbert Report” about his 2009 hug with President Barack Obama and Crist said the blowback he received for the hug was due to Obama being “not just a Democrat, [but] an African-American.” Crist appeared on Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report” to discuss his book, “The Party’s Over.” As the summary on Comedy Central states, Crist was there to explain “how the rise of the Tea Party drove him to become a Democrat.” …

    You had to know this was coming. Obama has been flailing around for all of 2013 in what has been called the worst year of his Presidency. As he sinks in the polls, Obama whips out the race card and he is no stranger to this. Ralph Nader accused Obama of that in 2008. "He wants to appeal to white guilt. You appeal to white guilt not by coming on as black is beautiful, black is powerful. Basically, he's coming on as someone who is not going to threaten the white power structure, whether it's corporate or whether it's simply...

    What were you expecting? We refer here to that dustup last week over an official MSNBC pre-Super Bowl tweet about a Cheerios commercial that featured a bi-racial family. The tweet read: Maybe the rightwing will hate it, but everyone else will go awww: the adorable new #Cheerios ad w/ biracial family, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus picked up the phone and protested directly to MSNBC president Phil Griffin. Griffin apologized, the tweet was deleted and the employee fired. Nothing to see here, folks, move on. Not so fast. Again, what were you expecting? What else could possibly make some MSNBC employee...
  • Jerry Seinfeld's Blunt Take on Diversity in Comedy: 'Who Cares?'

    According to Jerry Seinfeld, comedy and political correctness don't mix. The "Seinfeld" star had some surprisingly blunt things to say about the perceived lack of diversity on his shows in a chat with BuzzFeed and CBS News. In the clip above, the host brings up the fact that most of the guests Seinfeld has had on his Web series, "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee," have been white males. Seinfeld is clearly uncomfortable with the line of questioning, muttering, "Oh, this really pisses me off." He continues, "People think it's the census or something? Does this [have to] represent the actual...

    At a recent forum at the University of Michigan, MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry explained to her audience that white people will never understand why things are racist, because they lack an innate “racial trigger,” that instantly tells them when to be outraged. Harris-Perry, on the other hand, has a very finely-tuned racial trigger. “I know that this moment is racist because it trips my racial trigger, because it makes me feel nauseous,” she said, according to The Michigan Daily. “I’m not generally angry, but you just made me mad.” While lamenting that her ‘white allies’ would never be fully able...

    January 30, 2014, 04:23 pm MSNBC president apologizes to Priebus By Mario Trujillo MSNBC President Phil Griffin on Thursday apologized for the network’s offensive tweet aimed at the GOP and said he had fired the staffer responsible. A tweet sent from MSNBC's official Twitter account on Wednesday night said the right wing might hate a new Cheerios ad that features a biracial family, but the rest of the country would love it. Griffin said he personally apologized to Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus after the chairman threatened a boycott of the network until he received an apology. “The tweet...

    Once again, the curmudgeonly Sarah Palin didn't let a holiday pass without reminding us that she has Facebook page. On Martin Luther King Day, she posted a response to President Obama's New Yorker interview where she called on him to honor MLK by not playing the race card. The president had said that his approval rating suffers because some people don't like the idea of having a black president. Now her post doesn't rival some of her other holiday harangues, such as her book "Good Tidings and Great Joys," a how-to-guide to fighting back against the War on Christmas, or...

    Obama’s former pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, gave a speech to a largely black crowd in Delaware on MLK Day. The vile Chicago pastor said the Tea Party is “a 2.0 upgrade of the lynch mobs.” Reverend Wright spewed his toxic nonsense in Delaware yesterday at the 30th Annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Annual Breakfast in Wilmington, Delaware. Rather than rejecting his hate speech the crowd gave him a standing ovation.: (VIDEO-AT-LINK)The crowd loved it and gave him a standing ovation. Delaware Online reported, via The Last Tradition: The controversial Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright told a crowd celebrating Martin...

    The Week ^ | January 21, 2014 | Peter Weber, senior editor
    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) caused a small kerfuffle on Monday by requesting of President Obama, on her Facebook page: "Mr. President, in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. and all who commit to ending any racial divide, no more playing the race card." Nobody seems quite sure what prompted the request, though USA Today and Talking Points Memo, among others, suggest it was a new Obama profile in The New Yorker, in which the president famously says that marijuana is no worse for people than cigarettes and alcohol. In the germane passage regarding race, Obama tells interviewer David...
