    Several posters containing the salutation “Dear White People” appeared at North Carolina State University Thursday, accusing white students of “perpetuating racism and white supremacy.” “Dear white people, there is no such thing as being ‘colorblind.’ You are perpetuating racism and white supremacy,” one poster stated, with another informing “white people” that “black people can’t be racist.”

    The Southern Poverty Law Center,a liberal civil rights organization, cited Stephen Bannon by name as a "purveyor of white nationalist propaganda" in a fundraising letter it sent soliciting help in fighting back against hate groups. Further, Dees says Trump's victory has been interpreted as a "license to harass and intimidate minorities."

    As part of "Diversity Education Week," NC State’s Union Activities Board hosted an event today called "Dear White People," in which white students are told directly that they are racist. The signs ranged from asking white people if they have read the 13th Amendment to statements that said that "dating a black person to piss off your parents is a form of racism." Another sign read, "Dear White People: Are you tired of your hum drum, Wonderbread existence of accidental racism and wishing you could sip on Henny out yo crunk cup without a [expletive] giving you the side-eye?

    Like the United States, the United Kingdom is struggling to talk about immigration without the discussion turning into an exercise in name-calling. “We’ve been unwilling to talk about some difficult issues around both migration and integration for fear of being labeled racist, or just not wanting to provoke a difficult conversation,” said Jill Rutter, director of strategy and relationships at British Future, a nonpartisan think tank focused on integration and immigration. Rutter said that fear holds some people back from having an open and honest debate. The debate on immigration hasn’t faded in the nine months since the nation was...

    The appointment of University of Southern California Professor Raphael Bostic as president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta garnered praise from some leading Democrats in Congress. Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown, top Democrat on the Senate Banking Committee, hailed the appointment, calling it "a long overdue injection of new blood into the governance of monetary policy. Up to now there has been no one to represent a gay black perspective on interest rates, banking, and the economy. Dr. Bostic's ascendance to this prominent position plugs a gap that has stigmatized Fed policy for over 100 years." California's Rep. Maxine Waters,...

    Koritha Mitchell, an associate Professor of English at Ohio State University, has declared that most problems in the United States "can be traced" to "our country’s standards for white people." Professor Mitchell wrote this on her personal website; her specific article was titled, "Low Standards for Whites. That’s What’s Killing Us." "It doesn’t take much at all for a white person to be considered good," Mitchell argues. "As long as they avoid killing someone themselves, no one is going to demand anything else of them. Whites don’t need to do anything decent for anyone." Most white people contribute little to...

    Myles E. Johnson, who the New York Times lists as a "contributing writer" and children's-book author, argued last week that whiteness must be "abolished" because it is inherently "greedy" and "can't create anything on its own." This, as well as other racially-charged comments, were written publicly by Johnson last week. "Whiteness is greedy," Johnson wrote on the 16th, "and it even arrives in language. White people's use of the N-word is to show there is no place they can't arrive." Eventually, Johnson argued, that "whiteness" will always try to "show dominance" and "it will always be there until it is...

    To suggest that a sovereign nation should be free to determine its own future was the rallying cry of the Brexiteers, the thought (and fact) of a country’s destiny being decided by outsiders who have no care nor affinity for it was enough to tip the balance and win the EU referendum for the Leave camp. But the calls for independence from Scotland are not this, and as much as the media and the SNP (Scots National Party) would like to conflate the two, the parallels just don’t exist. Scotland’s First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, does not want a free, independent...

    Thursday, March 16, 2017 The Price of Privilege Posted by Daniel Greenfield A proposal has been making its way through the social justice sewer system to have white people pay a 5% privilege tax. That would be a lot cheaper than the current wealth redistribution built into the tax system. In 2004, black people made up 12% of the population and 20% of those who didn’t file taxes at all. It was estimated that 50.7% of African American households, 52% of Hispanic households and 37% of white households paid no income taxes. The numbers would likely have only gotten worse...

    Actress Thandie Newton has said she "can't work" in the UK because there are no roles for black and minority ethnic actors in historical dramas. London-born Newton said the number of costume dramas had led to "slim pickings for people of colour". Her criticism comes after British Film Institute research found that 59% of UK films since 2006 had no black actors in any role. Newton's next UK TV role will see her appear in BBC One's Line of Duty. Speaking to the Sunday Times Magazine, the mother-of-three said: "I love being here, but I can't work, because I can't...

The alt-right usually take up minimal space at anti-racism rallies—the most minimal space possible. Rule 2? They’re not likely to live in “gentrified” upper-middle-class city neighborhoods. Rules 4 and 5? They don’t care about the “diversity” of their organizations, they presumably don’t have black friends,...

A statement like “we’re all equal,” Harvey says, “actually blocks white children from recognizing or taking seriously racism when they see it or hear about it.” To give you an idea where Harvey, a religion professor, is coming from, she links to several (allegedly) white-perpetrated hate crimes, and associates them with the rise of now-President Donald Trump. She is “dismayed” that her daughter’s school’s...

    If you’re not an American millennial or university professor, you might be confused by the concept of “intersectionality.” First coined in 1989 by race theorist Kimberlé Williams Crenshaw, it has become a left-wing buzzword to define the lumping together of all self-described “oppressed” groups under a single umbrella. According to proponents of this radical fad — which amounts to an elimination of independent critical thought — not only must a person toe a particular ideological line, but he may never slip, even accidentally, into the realm of nuance or distinction. Someone who supports gay marriage, for example, has to oppose...

    As President Trump focuses on jobs, Barack Obama’s oddness as a President is thrown into relief.  How little we heard about jobs during Obama’s two terms -- not even jobs in the inner city.  We did hear a great deal about racism and sexism and homophobia on college campuses.  On college campuses?    The media created the impression that Obama didn’t do much as president besides fundraise and play golf.  He was actually both busy and effective in radicalizing his chosen identity groups. It is not necessary for the hard-left to win over a majority of their targeted demographics.  They...

    A black waitress who received thousands of dollars in donations after she claimed she received a racist note and no tip from a patron last month, fabricated the incident, the customer claims. Kelly Carter, a waitress at Anita’s New Mexico Cafe in Ashburn, Va., claimed that a white man stiffed her on his $30.52 restaurant bill and wrote “Great service, don’t tip black people” at the bottom of his receipt. But the receipt was fabricated, says Daniel Hebda, a lawyer for the patron. Hebda said in a statement Friday that his client did leave Carter a small tip — one...

    Members of the media cheered during a screening of the racial horror-comedy film Get Out when the black protagonist murdered an all-white family one-by-one. Conservative film critic Armond White reported the "all-media" audience's reaction on Friday, in his scathing review of the film in National Review. The New York Film Critics Circle removed White from its group after he allegedly made insulting comments about black director Steve McQueen during an annual awards ceremony. He called McQueen an “embarrassing doorman and garbageman,” according to Entertainment Weekly. White compared the film's director Jordan Peele, of Comedy Central's "Key and Peele," to President...

    The Black Student Union (BSU) at Oakton High School in Oakton, Virginia, part of the Fairfax County Public School district has organized a "black history spirit week," to run from February 21-24, 2017. In a Twitter post made February 18, the BSU announced the event, to include days such as "Afrocentric day," "Black-out day," and of course, "Trayvon Martin Day." It is not immediately clear whether this event is school-sponsored, but spirit weeks usually are. According to several BSU members, the school administration tried to walk back their support of Trayvon Day due to criticism from "white boys," but the...

    The Democratic National Committee will choose its next leader on Saturday, and when it does it should choose a leader who will resist the pressure to pursue the wrong white people. ... The way to win [Whites] back is by being more progressive, not less. [Snip] Keith Ellison, a D.N.C. chairman candidate, has a proven record of engaging core Democratic voters rather than chasing the elusive conservative whites, and the party would be in good hands under his stewardship. [Snip] Whoever prevails as chairman must resist the pressure to follow an uninformed and ill-fated quest for winning over conservative white...

    NEPTUNE — Congressman Frank Pallone called President Trump a “racist” during a Black History Month event on Saturday. Encouraging the audience at the Monmouth County Democrats Black American Caucus to be active and aware of racism like Martin Luther King, Pallone said, “the guy in the White House – he’s a racist. He also doesn’t believe there’s any role in government other than his own ideology,” according to the Asbury Park Press. The 6th district Democrat has been outspoken against Trump on his Twitter feed, calling for disciplinary action against Kellyanne Conway after she asked people to buy Ivanka Trump’s...

    The Writing Center at the University of Washington is telling students that expecting Americans to use proper grammar perpetuates racism. A press release put out by the University of Washington’s Writing Center argues that “there is no inherent ‘standard’ of English,” and that pressure to conform to proper American grammar standards perpetuate systems of racism. “Linguistic and writing research has shown clearly for many decades that there is no inherent ‘standard’ of English,” claims the writing center’s statement. “Language is constantly changing. These two facts make it very difficult to justify placing people in hierarchies or restricting opportunities and privileges because of...

    A conference on race took place at The Crossing Church in Tampa Bay, Florida, last week. The forum, titled “Under Our Skin,” attracted sports figures such as Super Bowl champion Tony Dungy, former player Ben Watson, and current ESPN anchor Sage Steele. The forum’s purpose was to “discuss the intersection of race and faith in America today.” That topic certainly received plenty of coverage at the conference. More notable, however, is how no one in the sports media covered what was actually said there.

    Of course, Donald Trump visiting the African American History Museum in Washington D.C. is a problem for journalists. April Ryan on Tuesday wondered what was the point of the President’s visit, considering he thinks that “white America” built the country. ABC reporter Cecilia Vega also demanded to know if Trump will show forgiveness to illegals.  But first, Ryan of American Urban Radio, demanded, “What did the President gain from his tour today? You talked about where he visited, the exhibits that he visited. Did he also visit slavery?” Lest her point be unclear, she added, “The reason why I'm asking this...
