    Boston Globe ^ | June 25, 2017 | Jim O'Sullivan
    Bostonians are fairly evenly divided over whether theirs is a racist town, 42 percent saying yes and 45 percent believing it is not, according to a new Suffolk University/Boston Globe poll. But, perhaps unsurprisingly, views vary dramatically among the races themselves. Fifty-seven percent of those who identify as black said the city is racist, compared with 37 percent of those who call themselves white. Hispanics fell in the middle, with 44 percent believing their hometown is racist.

White women: it is time to do your part! Your white children reinforce the white supremacist society that benefits you.

    We share a strength of mind and spirit that defies centuries of efforts to break us. So, I know: We are resilient. But today, I am angry and troubled and, I am wanting to lash out. • I am angry at a government that allows my people to be hunted and killed by rabid police officers. • I am troubled by the structure that allows two white men who killed prison guards to live, but deems it justifiable to kill a black child playing with a toy gun. • I lash out at a system that thinks it’s okay to...

Trinity College’s Johnny Eric Williams’ social media feed after the June 14 shooting of Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise included racial tirades and commentary calling on minorities to “confront” white people and “end this now,” a reference to an alleged system of “white supremacy.” “It is past time for the racially oppressed to do what people who believe themselves to be ‘white’ will not do, put end to the vectors of their destructive mythology of...

If you claim to be progressive, and yet willingly birth white children by your own choice, you are a hypocrite. White women should be encouraged to abort their white children, and to use their freed-up time and resources to assist women of color who have no other choice but to raise their children. Women of color are in need of financial and humanitarian resources. As this white supremacist society continues to imprison black fathers, women of color are forced to...

    Essex County College professor Lisa Durden was indefinitely suspended two days after a fiery and belligerent appearance on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight. On Tucker Carlson’s June 6 program, Durden launched a fierce defense of a black-only Black Lives Matter Memorial Day party restricting whites from attending based solely on their skin color. Carlson challenged her position, asking why it’s okay to exclude people based on their race. “I thought the whole point of Black Lives Matter, or one of the points, would be to speak out against singling people out on the basis of their race and punishing them...

    Parents are outraged that a North Carolina school district which faces a nearly $6 million budget shortfall is paying for so-called “equity training” for school staff which includes topics such as “structural racism” and “white privilege.” Rockingham County Schools is paying OpenSource Strategic Consulting a flat fee of $45,000 and will reimburse up to $1,500 for travel expenses over the course of the training, according to a June 20 report by A.P. Dillon of American Lens. Rockingham County commissioners recently cut the county’s education allotment by $269,000. The district faces around a $5.7 million shortfall, the report said.

    A Connecticut college is facing national outrage after a professor posted a series of Facebook messages attacking white people – along with a link to an essay that suggested first responders to last week’s congressional shootings should’ve let the lawmakers “f***ing” die. Trinity College Professor Johnny Eric Williams also reportedly shared an essay posted on Medium that included a photograph of Majority Leader Steve Scalise, titled, “Let Them F***ing Die.” The anonymous essayist opined that the Capitol police officers should’ve let Rep. Scalise and otherRepublican lawmakers die in last week’s ball park attack. “Saving the life of those that would...

    I remember the day after the 2016 Election, a friend of mine who happens to be white, remarked on social media that he "finally wasn't embarrassed of America and our President." I sprained my eyes rolling them and they have never fully recovered. Since then I've heard this sentiment echoed by more white folks than I can count, especially in recent months; supposed relief at once again having a leader who instills pride. I don't have the time to ask each of the individually, I'll ask here: So, you were embarrassed for the past 8 years, huh? Really? What exactly...

    Jay Z is continuing his fight against the criminal justice system by helping men who have been incarcerated but can’t get release due to exorbitant bail bonds. In an essay for Time magazine, Hov attacks the “exploitative bail industry” for their practices that he deems are unfair to black and brown people. “If you’re from neighborhoods like the Brooklyn one I grew up in, if you’re unable to afford a private attorney, then you can be disappeared into our jail system simply because you can’t afford bail,” Jay writes. “Millions of people are separated from their families for months at...

    The Skittles candy company’s colorless campaign, meant to celebrate LGBTQ Pride Month, is being bashed and called a “poorly veiled white supremacist” stunt by social media users. Skittles ditched it’s iconic colorful rainbow bags and released an ad that said: “During Pride, only one rainbow matters. So, we’ve given up ours to show our support.” A portion of the profits from each bag of fruit-flavored candy (purchased exclusively at Tesco grocery stores) will go to LGBT charities, the company said. But the ad campaign was slammed on social media, with several offended users equating the company’s use of an all-white...

    Fifty years after Mildred and Richard Loving's landmark legal challenge shattered the laws against interracial marriage in the U.S., some couples of different races still talk of facing discrimination, disapproval and sometimes outright hostility from their fellow Americans. Although the racist laws against mixed marriages are gone, several interracial couples said in interviews they still get nasty looks, insults and sometimes even violence when people find out about their relationships. "I have not yet counseled an interracial wedding where someone didn't have a problem on the bride's or the groom's side," said the Rev. Kimberly D. Lucas of St. Margaret's...

    Following their decision to narrow the scope of the case to an injunction against Minister King Shabazz, a spokesman for the Department of Justice stated that "Claims were dismissed against the other defendants based on a careful assessment of the facts and the law."[3] The Department of Justice also stated that the "facts and the law did not support pursuing the claims against three of the defendants", and that "As a result, the department dismissed those claims."[16] Questions about the validity of this explanation have served as the basis for subsequent controversy over the case, which has been investigated by...
