    Booking photos of Colinford Mattis and Urooj Rahman taken on May 30, 2020. In a dramatic hearing on Thursday, a federal judge sentenced a corporate attorney who firebombed a police car during the 2020 Black Lives Matter protests to a year in jail, arguing that his prestigious education — boarding school, Princeton, a law degree from New York University — should have rendered him a peacekeeper, not an instigator. “You’re not one of the oppressed. You’re one of the privileged,” senior Eastern District of New York Judge Brian Cogan told Colinford Mattis, even as he expressed admiration for what the...

Keenan Anderson, 31, a teacher and father, died at a hospital in Santa Monica. Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) have released body camera footage of the 3 January encounter. It shows Mr Anderson begging for help as officers hold him down. At one point he can be heard saying, "They're trying to George Floyd me!" - a reference to the May 2020 murder of a black man in Minneapolis, Minnesota, by a policeman.
  • Cori Bush, a liberal racist against Republicans ‘blacking wrong’

    “FWIW, @ByronDonalds is not a historic candidate for Speaker. He is a prop. Despite being Black, he supports a policy agenda intent on upholding and perpetuating white supremacy. His name being in the mix is not progress — it’s pathetic,” Bush tweeted Wednesday. If progressives like Bush actually cared about black people being used as props or tokens, she would have had a problem with Joe Biden wanting specifically a black woman to be his vice president before selecting Kamala Harris. She would have wagged her finger at Democratic pundits and strategists advocating a black female to take a Supreme...

    As an organization committed to fighting all forms of hate, we know that this brutal death follows an explosion of racist murders and hate crimes across the U.S. “The national rage expressed about the murder of Mr. Floyd reflects the depth of pain over the injustice that People of Color — and particularly Black men — have been subjected to throughout the generations. In recent months we have seen, yet again, too many devastating examples of persistent systemic racism, “For the past two days, the Jewish community observed Shavuot, a holiday rooted in learning and action that commemorates when the...
  • Hulu to release ‘1619 Project' docuseries — woke propaganda pushes many subscribers to cancel video service

    Hulu, the video subscription service, released on Tuesday a preview of its upcoming docuseries, an adaptation of New York Times journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones' controversial endeavor, "The 1619 Project." The project, which Hannah-Jones launched in 2019, "aims to reframe the country's history by placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black Americans at the very center of our national narrative." Supporters of the project believe that Americans need to be reeducated about the impact "anti-Black racism and inequality" has had on the country's past and present. However, the project's historical accuracy has been repeatedly contested and debunked. Roger Ross...

    When homicides surged across America during the pandemic, murders of Black women and girls rose more dramatically than other groups. At the same time, the proportion of those killings solved by police fell faster than other demographics in nearly two dozen cities. Some 2,077 Black women and girls were killed in 2021, a 51% increase over 2019 and the largest jump of any racial or gender group during that period, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Overall, the number of killings nationwide increased 34% during that time frame. Meanwhile, the number of unsolved homicides of Black women...

    There's no silver cloud for which the identity-politics crowd can't detect a downbeat lining! Take the news of black women being appointed to some of the country's most prestigious positions. You'd think that would be cause for unqualified celebration in liberal circles. But not so fast! On Mehdi Hasan's MSNBC show today, guest host Melissa Murray led a segment on "the glass cliff." The notion is that women, particularly women of color, tend only to be appointed to prestigious positions at institutions that are in crisis, and thereby are being "set up to fail."Get the rest of the story and...

    In San Francisco, the Asian-American community has drawn a lot of press for having had it up to here with crime, bums, dereliction, drugs, hookers, lootings, wokester education, and openly declared violent hate-crimes on the street. They threw out a slew of Board of Education wokesters plus the wokester let-'em-out district attorney, Chesa Boudin, in recall earlier this year, but little has changed, wokerism remains, the mayor isn't up to the job because she still thinks the solution is to throw money at the problems, and the crime keeps spreading. With no plan in action, citizens there elected more Democrats...

    The head of a historically black college has defended police being called to arrest a student who was arguing with her professor. Addressing the viral video of Leilla Hamoud, 20, being detained at Winston-Salem State University following a fallout with lecturer Cynthia Villagome over her essay, Chancellor Elwood Robinson said the school was in the right. 'We understand that the weaponization of police is a prevalent problem in our community, however, that is not what happened in this incident,' Robinson wrote in a letter to students and staff, adding that initial 'de-escalation efforts' had failed. 'We strive for a safe,...

    McDonald’s will have to defend itself against a $10 billion lawsuit from media mogul Byron Allen over an allegation that the fast food chain doesn’t advertise with Black-owned media. A federal court ruled last week said that Allen and his company, Allen Media Group, can try to prove in court that McDonald’s violated civil rights laws. Allen said in a press release that only a small portion — about $5 million of McDonald’s $1.6 billion annual advertising budget — goes to Black-owned media and that the company has “refused to advertise” on his networks, which include the Weather Channel and...

    A "Karen" was bullied and mocked for her tears on Thursday's episode of Dr. Phil that featured two race activists whose mission it is to get White women to "acknowledge their privilege" and racism. A woman named Ambrosia, who was featured in a viral video a few years ago for feuding with the staff at a UPS store, partially due to the store’s COVID-19 policy, was one guest. She was dubbed a "Karen" after the video, a word the Dr. Phil show defined as "alleged obnoxious, angry, entitled, and perceived racist White woman who uses inherent privilege to get their...

    Democratic Washington Gov. Jay Inslee held a recent equity summit that included a governor-appointed state education agency telling other state agencies that concepts like "objectivity" and "individualism" are rooted in "White supremacy culture" and should be rejected in favor of "indigenous relational pedagogy." During Inslee’s "2022 Governor’s Equity Summit" in Tacoma on Nov. 30, the interim executive director of the state’s Professional Educator Standards Board (PESB), which consists of 12 governor-appointed members dedicated to advancing "educational justice," gave a PowerPoint presentation titled "Internal Transformation: How an Education Agency is Transforming Itself in the Name of Justice." PESB’s presentation began with...

    A teacher in Baltimore, Maryland, celebrated "indoctrinating" students while dancing in a post on TikTok. "Put the taxes in the bag," the teacher's post on TikTok said, as the middle school Spanish teacher jovially danced. The teacher was responding to criticism of using a song in which she lip-synched "f--- up on your b----" in a video adorning her classroom in pride materials. Fox News Digital identified the teacher as Alexa Sciuto, who works at Pine Grove Middle School in the Baltimore County School District. Sciuto responded to a user, who said, "None of this is what education is supposed...

    A Minnesota science teacher in the Saint Paul Public Schools district lambasted cell biology lessons, particularly on mitochondrion, for containing "capitalist" propaganda, Fox News Digital found. Mandi Jung, a teacher at Highland Park Middle School, said, "Lately, there's been a lot of conversation about teachers indoctrinating students to their beliefs. And I always find this funny because our children are seeped in capitalist indoctrination from like the second they're born, basically." Jung proceeded to provide the "perfect example" of how "capitalist indoctrination" is expressed in her seventh grade science classes. "Seventh grade science… [is] the year that you learn that...
