    Geneticists at the University of Vermont have revealed links between eye color and alcohol dependency, suggesting it occurs more frequently among people with blue eyes and less frequently among those with dark brown eyes. The study, which offers another piece of evidence that alcohol dependency has a genetic component, involved a sample of 1,263 individual genetic profiles. They were pulled from a database that only contains genetic profiles of people diagnosed with at least one psychiatric illness, which includes an addiction to, or dependence on, drugs or alcohol. For this study, the geneticists filtered the database for patients with alcohol...

    Fair enough. Let’s almost not execute him. This seems to answer the lingering question of what was running through this degenerate’s mind while he sat through a Bible study meeting with a group of people he intended to murder in cold blood. I was thinking about that last night and couldn’t recall another case where a terrorist spent time getting to know his victims in an intimate setting before opening fire. To the extent you can understand the mind of a mass murderer, you would think dehumanization of the target is key. And the easiest way to dehumanize is to...

Salon is demanding all of “white America answer for” these murders: The story is still developing. At present, Charleston authorities are reporting that this mass shooting and likely right-wing domestic terrorist assault is a hate crime. While this horrific event is one more murderous and racist blow to the African-American community in Charleston–the killing of Walter Scott by a white thug cop being the...

    Spokane police suspended all reported hate crimes against fake black activists Rachel Dolezal on Friday. Investigators said the controversial letters did not have a post office stamp or barcode and therefore were most likely placed into the box by someone with a key. Rachel Dolezal said she was disappointed the investigation did not produce any arrests. She told KXLY News, “As a mother of two black sons I would never terrorize my children.” Dolezal claims she was the victim of hate crimes but police suspended their investigation after suspicious letters lacked postal markings. Dolezal was outed as a fake black...

    Last month, after finally announcing his candidacy for mayor of Houston, Adrian Garcia stepped down as Harris County Sheriff and county leaders appointed someone strikingly different – an older white Republican lawman who's been itching for job ever since Garcia hinted he might resign to run for mayor. As with most transitions of power, there was a sweeping, abrupt shakeup within the top ranks when former Precinct 4 Constable Ron Hickman took the reins as sheriff. Just two weeks after his appointment, Hickman had fired numerous people, demoted many others, and replaced his first several commander positions – top brass...

    Republicans are debating whether their path to the presidency in 2016 runs through the blue-collar Rust Belt states, or the demographically changing new South and Sunbelt states. For Democrats looking to retake the Senate, however, the formula is more clear-cut: Win back white working-class voters, or be consigned to a longer-term minority. (SNIP) Exit polls show that Rust Belt Democrats performed dismally among non-college-educated white voters in these states in 2010. Feingold won just 40 percent of their vote in 2010, five points behind Obama's vote share in the state two years later. In Ohio, Strickland tallied just 40 percent...

The rising seas will swallow us all, and if crops can't be harvested, none of us will eat. But a poll found that the public is more savvy than this story would have you believe. A report by the Public Religion Research Institute and the American Academy of Religion found that race is a consistent predictor both of people's concern toward climate change and inclination to act on it, which suggests members of the public sense that the harms...

    A seventeen year old boy in Memphis faced a nightmare while he was working a shift at Kroger.  A mob was attacking people in the parking lot.  This thin teenager tried to run but was caught and pummeled into unconsciousness, then viciously kicked and beaten as he lay helpless.  As is the custom these dark days, bystanders caught it on video, which was posted to the Internet and picked up by local television. Todd Starnes reported on this for Fox News: The thug who attacked Mr. Sauser’s son is a teenager with a lengthy criminal history. So far 11 people...

    Two women were arrested after they robbed and then intimidated three tenants out of their Brooklyn apartment — and the crime was partly motivated by race and class resentment, law enforcement sources said. Precious Parker, 30, and Sabrina James, 23, knocked on the door of an apartment building on Ocean Ave. near Newkirk Ave. in Flatbush at 9:30 p.m. on Thursday and held a 34-year-old man, a 37-year-old man, and a 25-year-old woman at gunpoint demanding they move out or be killed, police said. The women then stole $800, an iPhone and personal information

    Research confirms that the “acting white” charge is a real problem that intimidates some black students. Our job is to confront it. As kids go back to school this week, when it comes to black ones, it’s time to do some myth-busting. This week’s topic: black teens calling their nerdy black peers “white” for liking school. It’s a problem, because too often, black kids who want to fit in end up letting their grades slip. The social scientists John Ogbu and Signithia Fordham first called attention to this phenomenon in the 1980s. But over the past 10 years, a myth...

Thirty five percent of Americans believe that race relations have gotten worse in the Obama era -- including 40 percent of whites and 21 percent of blacks. Fifty-two percent of Americans polled said that race relations have stayed about the same.
  • Dick move: Erick Erickson won’t admit he was wrong about Michael Brown

    Just a week after Michael Brown was shot– before any concrete facts had emerged– Erick Erickson placed blame squarely on then-unnamed Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson specifically, and a racist America, generally… Must We Have a Dead White Kid? The facts that seem undisputed, and in these situations that is so rare, are that an unarmed eighteen year old named Michael Brown was walking in a street. An altercation occurred with a police officer. Undisputed is that the officer gave chase to Mr. Brown after the scuffle and shot Mr. Brown, at least once in the back.

    Perhaps it’s time to finally concede that Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and their fellow civil-rights crusaders have apparently been correct all along: There is indeed a whole lot of racism in America that just won’t go away. It may be time to admit that Sharpton is justified in so passionately condemning the recent police “execution” of Michael Brown in Missouri—calling it a “defining moment” for our country, a moment where the nation itself, with all its weighty, racist baggage, “is on trial.” The numbers, after all, don’t lie. During the most recent five-year period for which single-offender, interracial crime statistics...
