    The climate of hate in Dallas was real,and it had real consequences,”wrote former New York Times columnist Frank Rich in response to a letter to the editor criticizing his 2011 New York Magazine essay titled “What Killed JFK.” So the obvious question:New York City’s current police commissioner Bill Bratton said this past Saturday night of the cold-blooded murder of NYPD officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos:“They were, quite simply,assassinated—targeted for their uniform,and for the responsibility they embraced.”.................Whether it’s inviting the infamous race agitator Al Sharpton to the White House dozens upon dozens of times(Obama)or giving speeches in which the message...

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is hearing it from all sides today as he pays the consequences for his ill considered remarks following the failure of a grand jury to indict a police officer in the death of Eric Garner. De Blasio enraged police when he told a crowd of supporters in Staten Island earlier this month that he feared for his bi-racial son’s safety when dealing with the police: Chirlane and I have had to talk to Dante for years about the danger that he may face … how to take special care in any encounters he...

    "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants." So observed a sanguine Thomas Jefferson in 1787, responding to news of violent uprising in Massachusetts. But who ranks as a patriot? And what counts as tyranny? As it turns out, it depends on skin color. Just look in a history textbook. If whites are involved, uprisings tend to be framed as rebellions. Flip through the index of any social studies text, and you'll find several of them: Bacon's Rebellion, Shays's Rebellion, Dorr's Rebellion. The list goes on. When blacks are involved,...

    Mayor Bill de Blasio said this is 'not the time for politics' following the murder of two police officers in Brooklyn on Saturday. This as New York City's police commissioner said the gunman who ambushed and killed two police officers had made online posts that were 'very anti-police.' Police Commissioner William Bratton choked up at a news conference at the Woodhull medical Center on Saturday afternoon as he talked about the fatal shootings of two officers in Brooklyn's Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood. Meanwhile, an eyewitness who spoke to The Daily Beast said that 'a lot of people were clapping and laughing' following...

    The Minneapolis, Minnesota, school system has a big problem. According to Superintendent Bernadeia Johnson and the Justice Department, the vast majority of its 2,300 teachers are racists. To solve this problem, Johnson says the district must implement racism against white and Asian students. It is part of President Barack Obama and the Justice Department’s new protocols to combat racism. But does it really make sense to try to solve a perceived racism problem in teachers by institutionalizing racism against innocent students? Does using racism to solve any kind of problem make sense? Here’s what is happening: Black students in Minneapolis...

    A few weeks ago, on the night of the Ferguson decision, my son returned home after a nightly run. It had been raining, but he hadn’t run yet that day, so after a few hours of homework he ventured out, eager to run three miles. I hadn’t paid attention to his leaving, for I was working, but when he returned home, my heart sank. I wanted to grab and shake him and ask, “Why do you feel as if you have the right to run the streets at night?” My 15-year-old biracial son lives in tony Barrington with us, and...

    With the recent defeat of Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu — which leaves three Democratic Southern U.S. Senators — the common wisdom is that Democrats should bid farewell to the South. Even with favorable changing national demographics that benefit Democrats, an abandonment of the South and, on a larger scale, a viable moderate wing would be a mistake. Recently, writer Michael Tomasky argued that the South, a “reactionary, prejudice-infested” region, should be left to Republicans to create a “free market Jesus paradise.” Few sentiments better show what is wrong with Democrats today and why ironic Republican arguments that it is the...

It wasn’t enough for the NBA to reach out to the NYPD to prepare for the four-day All-Star festivities in February — the league also had a “straight line of communication” with the Rev. Al Sharpton, a source told The Post. The league is still hammering out the final details for the Feb. 15 All-Star Game at the Garden, but is planning the “biggest security operation” to date, the source said. No plans for protests are in the works by Sharpton or his National Action Network. Sharpton did not immediately respond to requests...

Why didn’t the emperor clean up Chicago neighborhoods with his pen and his phone while he was there? Cabs likely would have stopped more frequently if the city, especially the South and West Sides, wasn't infested by crime....

    We need law and policing reform, but first we have to want to end state-sanctioned violence against African-Americans. As the countless protests, tear gas, National Guard deployments and looting proved, police brutality provokes more anger than other outrages because it’s the supreme violation of our individual rights in a democracy. It is the state actor, as another person, violently snatching our breath away “under color of law.” That the state’s victims throughout our history have been overwhelmingly African-American stamps it as an indelible “badge of slavery,” which means that nothing makes you feel more black in America than experiencing police...

A conversation about race.JUDNICK: I feel like this is just an extension of the our “favorite” iMessage topic but in the light of the recent grand jury events with Mike Brown and Eric Garner (not to mention the promise of more to come with Tamir Rice and the others they’ve shot to death) I’ve been reminding friends that they do not have to answer to white people about their feelings. RAWIYA: Unlike many people,...

    The Rev. Al Sharpton has been praised as a civil rights icon by prominent figures in politics, and "60 Minutes" reported that he has become President Barack Obama's "go-to black leader." Sharpton has been frequently in the media for leading protests against grand jury decisions exonerating white policemen in the deaths of unarmed African-Americans in Ferguson, Missouri, and Staten Island, New York. But many in the mainstream media have sought to downplay the negatives surrounding the firebrand minister, who has been accused of being a rabble-rouser out for personal gain, including: 1. When Sharpton sought involvement in the funeral of...

      Cera Byers published a Facebook post, which was picked up by Salon.com, addressed “to my white male Facebook friends”.  I never saw the post on Facebook, mostly because I’m not Facebook friends with Cera Byers.  I don’t know anything about her except the one sentence written at the bottom of the post. Cera Byer is a dancemaker and teacher based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her favorite Ninja Turtle is Donatello I am a white male, and since the post was republished on Salon.com, I assumed it must also be addressed to me.  I may be wrong.  Perhaps...

    First there was Fergusson, where James Brown, a black teenager, stole a few Cigarillos. He was punished by death. Darren Wilson, a trigger-happy white cop, didn't have to stand trial for the murder. a grand jury let him off the hook. The resulting unrest in the community was severe. Fourteen businesses were looted and torched, and 3,000 national guardsmen were brought in to quiet things down. Then another minor offense, selling cigarettes without tax stamps on the packages was punished by death at the hands of a white officer. He used a chokehold, forbidden by New York City Police Department...

    With all the recent race clanging on MSNBC and other cable news networks, now’s probably a good time to remind everyone that America is among the least racist countries in the world. I know this statement will be shocking news to regular viewers of “PoliticsNation,” but it also has the quality of being true. From 2010 to 2014, the World Values Survey asked residents in over 50 countries who they would not want as neighbors. Just over five percent of respondents in the United States said “people of a difference race.” That’s far more tolerant a response than citizens of...

    A Washington state Democrat said that Republicans dubbed the Affordable Care Act “Obamacare” so that they could symbolically destroy President Obama when they destroy the bill. Rep. Jim McDermott (D-Wash.) said GOPs in Congress are just trying “more of the same game” in efforts to defund and dismantle Obamacare. “They’ve been trying to discredit it. Tear it apart. Tear it down, repeal it. Whatever you want to do. They’re trying to do it as long as they get rid of healthcare for the American people,” McDermott told MSNBC, branding Obamacare adviser Jonathan Gruber’s comments “careless remarks people make in situations.”...

    WEST BARNSTABLE – “I’m racist,” Elenita Muñiz told a crowd gathered at Cape Cod Community College on Tuesday. Muniz, coordinator of the Barnstable County Human Rights Commission, said she took an online quiz, showing that even she, a blue-eyed Puerto Rican and human rights advocate, harbors racist views. Muniz served on a panel to observe national Human Rights Day, which is today. The discussion focused on the shooting death of Michael Brown, 18, an unarmed black man killed by Officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9 in Ferguson, Missouri, and similar national incidents. Wilson, who resigned from the police force after...

    (AUDIO-AT-LINK)The Philadelphia chapter of the NAACP has elected a new president. Minister Rodney Muhammad has led North Philadelphia's Mosque Number 12 of the Nation of Islam for 23 years. He's moving from first vice president to president of the local NAACP chapter. In his new role, he said he would focus on bringing jobs to the city. "Traditionally, we may have stood outside of somebody's business and demanded that people of color have their fair share of jobs," he said. "But I think today we got to think a little beyond that, and think about how to sit down with...

    Newsweek Magazine ^ | December 9, 2014 | Bernard J. Tyson, chairman and CEO, Kaiser Permanente.
    With the entire country seeing demonstrations following the Ferguson decision, I’ve had colleagues and business partners ask me my thoughts—not from my perspective as the chairman and CEO of a $55 billion organization—but as a black man in America. You would think my experience as a top executive would be different from a black man who is working in a retail or food-service job to support his family. Yet, he and I both understand the commonality of the black male experience that remains consistent no matter what the economic status or job title. This piece is not to complain about...

    What the hell is happening in America? Are some people so threatened by the election of Barack Obama that it's open season on minorities? How did we come to this unequal and disturbing place where a white 18-year-old can carry a gun into a grocery store legally, yet an unarmed black teen is killed for being tall? Or wearing a hoodie? Or playing with a toy gun? Many things have been said about Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, Michael Brown and so many others. They were using marijuana. They were selling illegal cigarettes. They were menacing. They robbed someone. And, the...

    ...When the St. Louis County grand jury, after deliberating over whether to indict Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown Jr., decided not to bring any charges against him, it was the spark that reignited the longstanding anger and simmering distrust of the system among African Americans in Ferguson and across the nation. Their "cup of endurance" had run over. The inconvenient truth is that many African Americans see that decision as further confirmation of their belief that nothing has changed since the Kerner Report of 1968, and that nothing will; a police officer who...
