    Allure ^ | August 18, 2017 | Janet Mock
    I’ve been meditating on an image of Kerry Washington wearing her curls wild and free for the past week. She stepped out Sunday with her curly fro in Los Angeles, and it has brought me much joy. I haven’t seen Kerry’s hair big and frizzing since 2001 when I cut class to watch Save the Last Dance. Her hair, occupying more space in a world intent on blocking black girls from our blessings, was a dose of beauty, affirmation, and strength that I needed — especially now. Just a day before, a mob of racist white people holding tightly to...

    Gates of Vienna ^ | 08/18/2017 | Baron Bodissey
    The clash between the alt-right and the hard left at last Saturday’s aborted “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville ended in what appeared to be a deliberate atrocity on 4th Street just below the Downtown Mall. One woman was killed, and nineteen others wounded when James Fields ran them down with his car. The reason for the car’s sudden acceleration is not yet clear, but the Antifa action with the baseball bat immediately prior to the incident does raise questions (see this post for more).Given the speed at which the car was traveling, and the number of people on...

    III Publishing ^ | 2004 | William P. Meyers
    This pamphlet is designed to give its readers a solid overview of the Democratic Party's history. Genocide, Hickory and Slavery: The Origins of the Party The Democratic Party, as a party distinct from the Democratic-Republican Party, began with the beliefs and ambitions of one man: Andrew Jackson. Nicknamed Old Hickory, he became the President of the United States from 1829 to 1837. However, had not Jackson's ideas and ambitions appealed to many Americans in the 1820's and 30's, the Democratic Party would never have formed around him. Andrew Jackson was born in North Carolina in 1767. He became a successful...

    American Thinker ^ | 08/18/2017 | Patricia McCarthy
    The ridiculous campaign by virtually every media outlet, every Democrat and far too many squishy Republicans to label Trump some kind of  racist and Nazi sympathizer is beginning to have the stink of an orchestrated smear.   The conflagration in Charlottesville is beginning to feel like a set-up, perhaps weeks or months in the planning.  Planned by whom?  Time may tell.  We know that Michael Signer, the mayor of Charlottesville, declared his city to be the "capital of the resistance" just after Trump's inauguration.  We know that Gov. Terry McAuliffe is a corruptocrat, joined at the hip to the Clintons. ...

    OAKLAND, Calif. — Last weekend, when a 27-year-old bike messenger showed up at the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Va., he came ready for battle. He joined a human chain that stretched in front of Emancipation Park and linked his arms with others, blocking waves of white supremacists — some of them in full Nazi regalia — from entering. “As soon as they got close,” said the young man, who declined to give his real name and goes by Frank Sabaté after the famous Spanish anarchist, “they started swinging clubs, fists, shields. I’m not embarrassed to say that we...

    WASHINGTON — Kara Young, a biracial model who dated Donald J. Trump for two years before he married another model named Melania Knauss, remembers clearly bringing up her race with the real estate tycoon early in their relationship. As with so many issues, he steered the conversation to celebrity. “I didn’t hide my race from Donald Trump. He knew,” Ms. Young said in a rare interview. “He would say, ‘You’re like Derek Jeter.’ And I would say, ‘Exactly.’” “I never heard him say a disparaging comment towards any race of people,” she added. The furor that Mr. Trump has created...

    Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to cheer on Communists and Nazis punching each other in major American cities while civil society disintegrates around them. In Dallas, a black nationalist activist shot and killed 5 police officers at a Black Lives Matter anti-police rally. Instead of condemning BLM, Barack Obama defended a racist hate group whose role model is Assata Shakur, a wanted black nationalist cop killer, at the funerals of the murdered officers. The left killed civil rights and replaced it with black nationalism. The racial supremacism of black nationalism that killed those officers is everywhere....

    A Janitor's View ^ | August 16, 2017 | reasonmclucus
    Jesse Washington has reported that many dark skinned Americans recognize that they are not "African" Americans in spite of what some racists say. Th e term "African-American" perpetuates the principle tenet of Southern racism: "part black, all black" under the "one drop rule". Those who use the term are in effect segregating Americans with dark complexions from the rest of the population they may be related to. Those who use the term believe that those with dark complexions should only be able to claim their African ancestors and should forget about ancestors who came from Europe, North America or Asia...

    Assault against history goes way beyond the confederacy. It has become identity politics on steroids. The way to destroy liberty is to destroy the history, especially if the hero in history is a dead white European male. . . The liberal left’s desire to tear down any and all memories of the Confederate States of America is reaching a crescendo. Statues are being torn down. State flags are being redesigned and burned. According to the Democrats, and their Black Lives Matter brethren, all vestiges of the dark time when the Southern States practiced slavery must be stricken from the record....

    White House Chief Strategist Stephen Bannon condemned white nationalist "clowns" in an interview Wednesday, but continued to hit Democrats over "identity politics", saying if they talked about race every day he could ensure Republican election victories. “The Democrats, the longer they talk about identity politics, I got ’em," the former head of Breitbart told The American Prospect in an interview. "I want them to talk about racism every day." "If the left is focused on race and identity, and we go with economic nationalism, we can crush the Democrats,” he added. Bannon's comments came after a white supremacist rally in...

    He was not supposed to be back until Thursday, but President Trump’s Tuesday afternoon may have been too much for Joe Scarborough as he returned to air a day early. The Morning Joe host beamed in to co-anchor his namesake show from what appeared to be a living room in Maine to denounce the Commander-in-Chief after the comments he made during his Trump Tower press conference on Tuesday. 'He has now officially become the president of the white nationalist movement,' said Scarborough. 'The president has chosen sides, and it is very clear. Not only morally, but also politically.' Scarborough then...

    Appearing as a guest on Wednesday's CNN Newsroom, CNN senior political reporter Nia-Malika Henderson claimed that the Republican party has been "playing the race card" for "many decades" as she commented on Republican reaction to President Donald Trump's recent comments in which he seemed to give cover to white racist rally participants in Charlottesville. At 9:08 a.m. ET, after recounting Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio's reaction to Trump's comments, Henderson continued: CNN's Henderson Claims GOP Have 'Played the Race Card' for 'Many Decades'   I think you have Republicans who are going to have to figure out what they're going...

    The American Conservative ^ | 08/13/2017 | Rod Dreher
    Charlottesville is the kind of America that identity politics is calling into being. It’s time for straight talk about that. On the Right, the story is fairly straightforward. Neo-Nazis, white nationalists, and their ilk have to be condemned in no uncertain terms, and marginalized. The president’s coy rhetoric, dancing around these people for fear of alienating them, has to end. (I don’t expect it to end, but others on the Right need to speak up to condemn him.) It is not enough for conservative politicians and thought leaders to condemn these incidents. In their rhetoric, they need to start criticizing...

    When I was young, I was taught to hate Black conservatives. I regarded African-Americans like Clarence Thomas and Ben Carson as Uncle Toms and sellouts. However, after the age of Barack Obama, I had to reassess my thinking about Clarence Thomas. Was he right all along and the civil rights establishment wrong? What have Black Republicans done, how have they harmed the Black community? How has being loyal to Democrats benefited the Black masses? Recently, the civil rights establishment jumped on Steve Harvey and Ray Lewis for meeting privately with Donald Trump. It gets irritating that the liberal establishment hand-picks...

    The Democrat Party: Nothing Has Changed Except the Hood The Ku Klux Klan was founded as the activist wing of the Democratic Party. kkk rally 2 On September 28, 1868, a mob of Democrats massacred nearly 300 African-American Republicans in Opelousas, Louisiana. The savagery began when racist Democrats attacked a newspaper editor, a white Republican and schoolteacher for ex-slaves. Several African-Americans rushed to the assistance of their friend, and in response, Democrats went on a “Negro hunt,” killing every African-American (all of whom were Republicans) in the area they could find. (Via Grand Old Partisan) Democrats in hoods slaughtered hundreds...
