    Toxic ideologies often start around family dinner tables. It's not just an uncle saying a racist joke, or a grandmother determining her xenophobic ideas as “a part of her time.” These comments seep into how we make decisions in voting booths, how judges rule in their chambers, how teachers guide students in school classrooms, how employment decisions are made, and how police react in high-stakes situations. After a year of relentless atrocities that don’t always make for easy conversation at the dinner table, it's important to make Thanksgiving preparations beyond the tablescape and the menu. This year, I want you...

    Consider two Americans. One is named Mike. Mike is a straight white Christian male from a decaying industrial city in Ohio or Michigan. He never knew his father. His mother is hooked on painkillers. His home life isn’t great. Mom’s various boyfriends enjoy smacking him in the face. He gets passed around to a variety of family members. He gets into drugs early. Crime too. He drifts around high school and doesn’t graduate. He has no skills and no prospects. The other American is Malia Obama. Who has the privilege here? Which one of these citizens is going to have...

    Ellen Pompeo took a stand in an on camera interview for Net-A-Porter, calling out the publication during an actress roundtable interview. The “Grey’s Anatomy” star appeared in the video interview opposite Gina Rodriguez, Gabrielle Union, and Emma Roberts. When the conversation turned to representation in front of and behind the camera, Pompeo took a moment to address the elephant in the room and advocate for more inclusive sets of all shapes and sizes. “This day has been incredible, and there’s a ton of women in the room. But I don’t see enough color,” Pompeo said about the Net-A-Porter set. “I...

    Artificial intelligence is “shockingly” racist and sexist, a study has revealed. Researchers looked at a range of systems and datasets and found examples where AI had provided inaccurate information for women and minorities.

    A Chipotle manager was fired from a Saint Paul, Minnesota branch after a video of her refusing to serve black customers went viral. But social media users pointed to old tweets from the man who posted the video that suggested he had a history of dining and dashing. In the video, posted to Twitter last week, the white manager is seen laughing and telling the group of men, “You gotta pay cause you never have money when you come in here.” As one of the men is filming, a white customer was allegedly given their meal for free, according to...

    This week, Republican Gov Phil Bryant’s expression of puzzlement that there is no media outrage over the 20 million black babies killed by the abortion industry since 1973’s Roe v. Wade Supreme Court ruling drew a vicious backlash from Mississippi Reproductive Freedom Fund Executive Director Laurie Bertram Roberts. “Gov Bryant’s concern is disgusting and vile,” Roberts asserted. “It’s racist to single out the black mothers who choose to abort their babies.” ThinkProgress, a left-wing pro-abortion news site, slammed Bryant as a “misogynoir. His notion that abortion poses a distinct threat against black lives is a myth.” Claiming something is a...

    President Donald Trump has come under fire from liberals, who are accusing him of racism for honoring Elvis Presley with a Medal of Freedom Award. President Trump is awarding the Presidential honor to seven Americans on Friday, but it's his inclusion of the late rock star that has (un)surprisingly drawn irk from the left.

    Veteran Alabama law enforcement officer Mark Pettway grew up in a black neighborhood called “Dynamite Hill” because the Ku Klux Klan bombed so many houses there in the 1950s and ’60s. Now, after becoming the first black person elected sheriff in Birmingham — on the same day voters elected the community’s first black district attorney — Pettway sees himself as part of a new wave of officers and court officials tasked with enforcing laws and rebuilding community trust fractured by police shootings, mass incarceration, and uneven enforcement that critics call racist. In a state where conservative politicians typically preach about...
  • Vanity: “White People Behaving Badly” Stories

    11/16/2018 6:46:20 AM PST · by TigerClaws · 25 replies
    Every week I’m seeing a “white people behaving badly” story. A woman questions a black man about entering his own expensive townhouse. White woman berates Hispanic woman about speaking Spanish. White middle school boys do a Hitler salute. These stories are widely reported nationally and internationally (Daily Mail). Why? The events are so rare they warrant press attention? Perhaps. More likely they fit a narrative the MSM is constantly pushing and serve as reinforcement. Narrative: whites are evil. Other minority citizens are victims. The victim mentality is part of a divide and conquer tactic of leftists. Keep blacks, women (who...

    Abraham Lincoln, when informed that General Ulysses S. Grant was a drunk, famously asked Grant's accusers what whiskey he was drinking so Lincoln could send a barrel to every general in the army. Keep this in mind when President Donald Trump's critics accuse him of "racism" against blacks. Under this "racist" President, black unemployment, since the government began keeping numbers, hit an all-time low in May. Polls show that inner-city parents want choice in education: specifically, they want the means to opt out of sending their children to an under-performing government school the child has been mandated to attend....

    Lawyers suing President Donald Trump over his decision to end special protections shielding certain immigrants from deportation are seeking unaired footage from his reality TV show “The Apprentice” to try to bolster their case alleging the move was racially motivated, the attorneys said Wednesday. Lawyers for Civil Rights, which sued Trump in February , has issued subpoenas to MGM Holdings Inc. and Trump Productions LLC demanding any footage shot during the production of the show in which Trump “uses racial and/or ethnic slurs” or “makes remarks concerning race, nationality and/or ethnic background.” Former White House staffer and fellow reality-TV star...

    Lorena Martin was hired just over a year ago to fill a position unique to baseball. No other organization before the Seattle Mariners had a director of high performance in the baseball operations department. But on Monday, just over a month after the Mariners fired her, Lorena Martin posted a string of heavy comments to her Instagram and Twitter accounts, leveling accusations of racism and discrimination and specifically naming general manager Jerry Dipoto, manager Scott Servais and director of player development Andy McKay.

    Actress Jada Pinkett Smith admitted on Monday she holds prejudice against white women with blonde hair, claiming that they bullied her throughout her childhood because of her appearance. “I think what crushes me, specifically in my relationship with white women, the thing that really breaks my heart is that white women understand what it feels to be oppressed,” Pinkett Smith said during an episode of her Facebook chat show, “Red Table Talk.” “Because of their sex,” her 17-year-old daughter Willow interjects. “Exactly. Because of their sex,” she responds. “What it feels like to be ostracized or not being treated as...

    Actress Jada Pinkett Smith revealed Monday that white women with blond hair trigger deep-seated prejudices in her that she’s carried since she was a child. The “Girls Trip” star said on the new episode of her Facebook chat show, “Red Table Talk,” that she’s had to keep herself in check when it comes to judging white women, acknowledging that they share the oppression she’s also experienced because of their gender. “White women understand what it feels to be oppressed … because of their sex,” Mrs. Pinkett Smith said. “What it feels to be ostracized or not being treated as an...

    A white retired firefighter in Michigan found guilty of firing a shotgun from his porch at a black teenager who knocked on his front door because he was lost was sentenced Tuesday to four to 10 years in prison.

He was convicted on Oct. 12. The sentences will...

Fifty-four percent of Democrats view Republicans as “ignorant,” with 49 percent of Republicans similarly viewing Democrats. Fifty percent of Republicans cast Democrats as “evil,” with 44 percent of Democrats doing the same with Republicans.

    April Ryan, who is White House correspondent and Washington bureau chief for American Urban Radio Networks, referred to Trump's attacks on a number of prominent black women recently: On Wednesday, Trump was telling reporters about his low opinion of CNN reporter, Jim Acosta after their altercation at a presser, when he changed tack and said that Ryan was "a loser, she doesn’t know what the hell she’s doing". “She gets publicity and then she gets the pay raise...she’s very nasty and she shouldn’t be," he said, adding that “you have got to treat the White House and the office of the presidency...

    The midterms left us with a lot of things to think about. One of the most mind-numbing was when Oprah and Obama made it pretty clear that they believe America still oppresses black people. “All of us may have been created equal,” a preachy Oprah said at her Stacey Abrams rally. “But if ya woke! If you woke; if you woke just-a lil’ bit – you got sense enough to know that everybody’s not treated equally. The reality is this: We see injustices – big and small – all around us every single day of our lives. … (A)s our...
