    University of Washington Tacoma - An "antiracist" poster in a college writing center insists American grammar is "racist" and an "unjust language structure," promising to prioritize rhetoric over "grammatical 'correctness.'" The poster, written by the director, staff, and tutors of the University of Washington, Tacoma's Writing Center, states "racism is the normal condition of things," declaring that it permeates rules, systems, expectations, in courses, school and society. "Linguistic and writing research has shown clearly for many decades that there is no inherent 'standard' of English," proclaims the writing center's statement. "Language is constantly changing. These two facts make it very...

    Racism everywhere! You already know that ESPN has fallen very far, from its heyday as the global leader in sports programming to its current pathetic state as a pusher of left-wing social sensibilities that uses sports a foil. ESPN celebrates on-air personalities like Tony Kornheiser, Michael Wilbon and Stephen A. Smith for their courageous liberal pronouncements. (For the record, I love Smith . . . but he is what he is.) ESPN fires conservatives like Curt Schilling who express their opinions, even when they do so off the air and completely apart from their role on ESPN.

    Ordinary black people cannot afford to go along with the liberal agenda that calls for undermining police authority. That agenda makes for more black crime victims.Let’s look at what works and what doesn’t work.In 1990, New York City adopted the practice in which its police officers might stop and question a pedestrian. If there was suspicion, they would frisk the person for weapons and other contraband. This practice, well within the law, is known as a “Terry stop.”After two decades of this proactive police program, New York City’s homicides fell from over 2,200 per year to about 300. Blacks were...

Elizabeth Warren (Mass) excoriated the Trump Administration's "deplorable xenophobia in placing the interests of American citizens ahead of the interests of humanity." "Hillary warned us of the transcendent evil that Trump poses to the progressive values President Obama strove to embed in our government's policies," Warren screeched in her Senate tirade against the confirmation of Sen.

    In the Obama years, America’s public education system embarked on a vast social experiment that threatened to turn schools into educational free-fire zones. The campaign—carried out in the name of “racial equity”—sought to reduce dramatically the suspension rate of black students, who get referred for discipline at much higher rates than other students. From the top down, the U.S. Department of Education drove the effort; from the bottom up, local educational bureaucrats have supported and implemented it. “Racial equity” has become the all-purpose justification for dubious educational policies. Equity proponents view “disparate impact”—when the same policies yield different outcomes among...

It was also known as “Klanbake.” In Madison Square Garden, New York City, from June 24 to July 9, a dispute during came up revolving around an attempt by non-Klan delegates, led by Forney Johnston of Alabama, to condemn the organization for its violence in the Democratic Party’s platform. But Klan delegates defeated the platform plank in a series of floor debates. To celebrate, tens of thousands of hooded Klansmen rallied in a field in New Jersey, across the river from New York City. This event, known subsequently as the...

    Basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has penned an editorial highly critical of President-elect Trump. “Never before in modern history have we had a president-elect so ill-informed, ill-tempered, irrational and ill-equipped to deal with the major issues that face this country,” Abdul-Jabbar writes in the new edition of The Hollywood Reporter. […] Abdul-Jabbar argues that “a quick look at two of the black faces that Trump parades on television as proof of the diversity of his entourage is actually evidence of his using black shills to distract us from his paternalistic policies to dismantle civil liberties for people of color, women, the...

    In audio obtained by Motor City Muckraker, a voice, which the newspaper claims belongs to Jim Fouts, the mayor of Warren, MI is heard making racist remarks as well as derogatory, profane comments about older women. Fouts has strongly denied making the comments and has questioned the authenticity of the recording. “You know, blacks do look like chimpanzees,” Fouts (or someone sounding like him) said in the recording. “I was watching this black woman with her daughter and they looked like two chimps.”

    CNN's Marc Lamont Hill referred to Trump diversity team member Bruce LeVell as a part of a group of "mediocre Negroes" who met with the president-elect. The characterization, which includes Pastor Darryl Scott and television host and comedian Steve Harvey, came during a panel discussion with host Don Lemon on "CNN Tonight" on Monday. “They (the Trump transition team) keep bringing up comedians and and actors athletes to represent black interests. It’s demeaning, it’s disrespectful, and it’s condescending,” Hill argued. “Bring some people up there with expertise, Donald Trump, don’t just bring up people to entertain.”

    According to The New York Times, Jennifer Willis was planning to travel up to D.C. from South Carolina with her two daughters to attend the Women’s March on Washington on the day after Donald Trump’s inauguration. She thought it’d be a great opportunity to stand alongside her sisters and protest Trump’s misogyny. Then she got a harsh lesson in how the political left conducts itself. One of the event’s organizers, a black woman from Brooklyn, lectured on Facebook in excluding language that white “allies” should listen more and talk less, adding, “You don’t get to join because now you’re scared...

    Mary Kinney quietly retired last year as Ginnie Mae’s chief operating officer after officials there paid $900,000 to settle a subordinate’s racism complaint against her, then cashed in on her public service experience to land a position in a firm that uses minority status to win non-competitive government contracts. Kinney — who is caucasian — also claimed the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) picked her for its most prestigious employee award in 2015, after it found out about conduct it called “utterly humiliating” and “race denigrating” toward blacks and determined that “discriminatory malice permeated her mindset.” But HUD...

    By Craig Johnson This weekend marks the 88th anniversary of the birth of the late Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (January 15, 1929).  It also marks the 119th anniversary of the famous letter, “J’accuse!” It was written by influential French writer, Emile Zola, and published in the French newspaper, L’Aurore, on January 13, 1898. Zola wrote the open letter to Felix Faure, President of France.  “J’accuse” is French for “I accuse”.  Zola accused President Faure of antisemitism in the unfair charging and convicting of French Army staff officer Alfed Dreyfus.  The charge was espionage, which carried a sentence of...

    The people who want to destroy the Trump presidency demand that John Lewis, be awarded absolute moral authority (shades of Cindy Sheehan) for his public denial of the legitimacy of the next commander-in-chief. At least that is the conclusion one must draw from the torrent of abuse Donald Trump has received for his tweets suggesting that Lewis should better spend his time helping his constituents. Lewis is invariably described as a “civil rights icon,” but the man is an utter fraud. He has been coasting on his 50-year-old reputation for decades. Andrew Breitbart exposed Lewis as a liar when he...

    ....such partisan rhetorical overkill has come naturally to Lewis throughout his public life. He characteristically demanded the impeachment of George W. Bush for authorizing the National Security Agency to conduct wiretaps without a warrant. When Barack Obama did the same thing, Lewis didn’t even offer criticism. Here are some other famous but forgotten slurs from Lewis in recent years:

    The Rev. Al Sharpton on Sunday praised President Obama and touted his accomplishments while in office. "I am so proud of President Barack Obama, not just because he was and is my color, but because he was America's kind," Sharpton said on MSNBC's "Politics Nation." "He helped this country like no president I've seen in my lifetime. We should thank God we lived in the age of Obama." Sharpton said Americans must be "concerned" about the future of the country when President-elect Donald Trump is inaugurated next week. He went on to tout Obama's record, including his work on improving...
