    Colin Kaepernick has yet to throw a regular-season pass, but the 49ers' backup quarterback's decision to kneel during the national anthem to protest social inequality has made an impact that extends well beyond a football game. As Kaepernick continues to protest, he has been joined by other NFL players, and athletes -- both professional and amateur -- in other sports. It has become a divisive topic nationally, especially in light of recent shootings of African-American men by police officers in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Charlotte, North Carolina. On Friday night, Kaepernick was in Oakland at Castlemont High School, where he...

    It's time to recognize what freedom really entails. It's not the freedom to destroy by invoking "free speech," but the freedom to work, produce and build a strong family, community and nation The war of semantics has overshadowed the rising tempers among special interest minority groups. In an effort to diffuse or whitewash (look it up if you’re inclined to infer racist overtones) the growing divide between communities in the United States, talking heads have come up with another ‘softening’ term for plain old racism. By employing this newspeak term, “racialism,” pundits seek to deflect from identifying their remarks as...

    Black men may have a legitimate reason to flee Boston police during investigatory or “Terry” stops, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court ruled Tuesday. The court found that systemic racism in the Boston Police Department may be considered in conjunction with a suspect’s decision to flee from police during a stop. A Terry stop, named for the U.S. Supreme Court case which sanctioned the practice, refers to a brief detention and search of an individual due to reasonable suspicion of criminal conduct. In this case, a black male named Jimmy Warren was arrested in 2011

    Invisible Reports on Black-on-White Violence Reflections on the white victims the media never told you about. September 22, 2016 Jack Kerwick An “unarmed” black man, Terence Crutcher, has been fatally shot by police officers in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  In the wake of this event, “anger mounts.” In North Carolina, on Tuesday night, black thugs—“protesters”—besieged Charlotte’s Finest with rocks, bottles, and traffic cones and shut down the interstate after a black police officer shot and killed another “unarmed” black man, Keith Lamont Scott. In spite of its predictability, or perhaps because of it, the response on the part of black activists...

[…] “I think Chicago needs stop and frisk,” Trump said. “When you have 3,000 people shot and so many people dying, I mean it’s worse than some of the places we’re hearing about like Afghanistan, you know, the war-torn nations.” …

Robert Pittenger, whose district includes parts of Charlotte and its suburbs, was asked by an interviewer for Britain’s “BBC Newsnight” what grievance the protesters have. In the video posted online Thursday, Pittenger responded: “The grievance in their mind is — the animus, the anger — they hate white people because white people are successful and they're not.” He also complained that the government has spent too much on welfare programs that ultimately hold people back.

Sixty-six-year-old Paul Davis, a cab driver and son of Mississippi sharecroppers, decided to pay $1,500 in rent atop his mortgage just to get his son Robert out of some of the nation’s most violent schools by establishing residency in a better school district.

    This was nuts. Far left activist Richard Fowler told the panel on Sunday Morning Futures the word “terror” is an offensive term because Muslims may have hurt feelings. Richard Fowler: Here’s what DeBlasio tried to do yesterday, right? Yes, it was an intentional act. Yes, it was an act of terror. The problem is when you say the word ‘terror’ because of word association it automatically assumes you are talking about people of the Muslim faith. And that is why he said an intentional act and not terrorism because we don’t know if it was Muslim. None of these organizations...

    Many, including me, have lamented that political correctness, especially on university campuses, is undermining free speech. That's true, but I'm not sure that political correctness is the only culprit or that free speech is the only casualty. Most of us have heard about "white privilege," "trigger warnings," "microaggressions" and "safe spaces." Let me provide rough definitions from an online dictionary and other websites. I'm sure that I could be accused of a microaggression for failing to be more precise, but I'm trying. White privilege is the notion that whites have an advantage in getting societal benefits in Western countries, to...

To simplify his findings, he says, White and rich neighborhoods have better Walmarts than Black and poor neighborhoods. “People used words like ‘unorganized’, ‘nasty’ and ‘worst’ to describe stores in communities of color much more than they used those words to describe Walmarts in Whiter communities,” Reich said in a Skype interview....

Pastor Mark Burns, an African-American Trump supporter, is being accused by the media of racism for posting this "racially offensive" cartoon that mocked Hillary Clinton's racially offensive pandering to black people by depicting her in blackface.

    Violence, racism, intolerance and religious bigotry made headlines this summer and the American Academy of Pediatrics took notice. These issues are impacting children and the organization wants to address the societal problems proactively with kids and their families.“We need to talk more about this, definitely,” said Dr. Sylvia Blaustein of St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center in Paterson. “I think everybody should be discussing these issues because of what’s going on nationally and internationally.”  The AAP was pushed to action in early July after shootings in Baton Rouge and Dallas. It announced an initiative aimed at addressing gun violence as...

    Let's go to the tape... According to Hillary and her surrogates, Trump is a horrible racist. He’s a bigot, he hates pretty much everybody and, if he wasn’t running for President, he’d probably be riding around the deep south wearing a sheet. He’s just that awful. Of course, no one ever said any of this during the last 40 years - over the course of which Trump was a very public figure. It’s amazing that someone could be so famous, and yet no one, anywhere, ever mentioned his rampant bigotry. Like so many others, Trump’s supposed racism only came to...

    Football banana-throwing racism What’s the basis for the racist symbolism of hurling bananas at black football players? by David Catchpoole Published: 30 August 2016 (GMT+10) Australian Rules Football player Eddie Betts, of the Adelaide ‘Crows’, was not even aware that a Port Adelaide ‘Power’ supporter in the grandstand had hurled a banana towards him until he was told about it after the game had finished. When a spectator threw a banana towards a player at an Australian Rules Football match recently, it triggered a frenzy of outrage in social and other media.1 Within hours, an online video clip of the...

    Colin Kaepernick, I don't know if you will ever read this, but you should. Enough of the name-calling and demands that you leave the country. Just read... My wife came here as in illegal alien, a status not well-liked to this day. I forced (yeah...forced) her to get residency a quick as possible and then citizenship, to learn English to fluency, to drive a 5-speed manual transmission vehicle and to show respect for MY culture, this country, our laws and yes, our national anthem. I didn't do it in a really nice way...I didn't give her a choice. The hardest...

    Hillary Clinton is trying to smear Donald Trump with a faked charge that he is connected to the Klu Klux Klan. This is clearly a panicked response to how well Trump is doing with Black voters. It is exactly the kind of insulting trash Democrats think they can use to fool people, both Black and White. As usual the Democrat is lying. It is Hillary Clinton who accepted a $20,000 donation from the Klu Klux Klan, not Trump. Recently leaked DNC Emails reveal the Democrat hierarchy plotted to destroy the candidacy of Bernie Sanders by, among other things using his...

    GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump's bid to woo black votes by persuading them that Democratic policies have ruined their lives was denounced by rival candidate former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in a major policy speech she gave in Reno, Nevada this week. "Democrats and blacks have been together for a long time," Clinton told a crowd that easily surpassed double digits. "It's kind of like we have a 'common law marriage.' It's outrageous for an outsider like Trump to try to alienate our mutual affections. Sure there have been some rough patches. Every marriage has rough patches. Bill and...

    Whatever the “Alt Right” might be, it’s politically irrelevant compared with what we’ll call the “Alt Left.” What is the “Alt Left”? It’s a movement of phony self-righteousness and “compassion” that it uses to gain power. It will do anything...say anything to achieve its goal of hammerlock control not only of government, but every significant cultural institution – from schools, universities and the press to churches, foundations, Hollywood and unions. And here’s the kicker: It’s racist to the core! The “Alt Left” supports population control, eugenics and repression of minorities. It does this in several ways: Stands silent amid the...

    SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Colin Kaepernick did not stand during the national anthem Friday because he refused to “show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” he told the NFL Network’s Steve Wyche after the game. “To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way,” Kaepernick said. “There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.” The San Francisco 49ers quarterback has been outspoken on his Twitter and Instagram account about racial issues, including...
