    The statue is featured in a Dutch exhibition that pairs Egyptian antiquities with works from Black culture.What did the ancient Egyptians look like? A new exhibition at National Museum of Antiquities in Leiden, the Netherlands, has sparked controversy by including a contemporary artwork that appears to depict the Pharaoh Tutankhamun as Black. “Kemet: Egypt in Hip-Hop, Jazz, Soul and Funk” pairs Egyptian antiquities from the museum’s collection with work inspired by ancient Egyptian culture by created by musicians of the African diaspora, including Miles Davis, Erykah Badu, Beyoncé, and Rihanna. The Leiden exhibition acknowledges that while generations of Black musicians...

    Before there was J6, there was J1. On May 29th, 2020, the nationwide insurrection by the racist hate group BLM and its leftist allies arrived in the nation’s capital in a very big way. On Friday night, a violent racist leftist mob, falsely described as “peaceful” by its media allies, converged on the White House. The insurrectionists assaulted Secret Service and Park Police officers. They shouted obscenities and threatened President Trump even as they fought their way past law enforcement personnel to reach the White House. “It looks like a war zone outside the White House,” Adam Parkhomenko, the former...

  • BLM’s Financial Fall Proves it Only Used Dead Black People to Cash in

    Some lottery winners have described their situation as being at the right place at the right time to receive their fortuitous ticket to wealth. Their windfall immediately changes their lives, making them responsible for managing an amount of money they’d never dreamt of having. People believe money changes a person, but I believe it only accentuates what was already within: The money just makes it easier to exhibit it. The national Black Lives Matter organization got its golden ticket off the corpses of black people and leveraged their unfortunate deaths against the emotional turmoil of a nation for profit.

    About 20 years ago I read a piece about the North Miami police department eliminating the swimming requirement for the police. With a working knowledge of geography and having visited Miami many times, I thought this was a bit odd and kind of a bad idea. After all, North Miami has hundreds of miles of canals, lakes and beaches. Predictably, the reason the requirement was being dropped was because “blacks are less likely than whites to know how to swim because of economic disparities between the groups…” Basically because not enough blacks were qualifying to become police. That was long...

    D.C.’s lead prosecutor has turned a blind eye to a six-month campaign of terror in the nation’s capital in 2020 so he could keep his sights on the mostly nonviolent protesters of January 6, 2021. "Our office prosecutes all acts of violence, regardless of political motivation, the same.” So said U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Matthew Graves—under oath, mind you, and with a straight face—during a hearing of the House Oversight Committee earlier this month. Representative Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) questioned Graves’ disparate treatment of Black Lives Matters rioters who terrorized Washington, D.C., in 2020 versus Trump supporters involved...

    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has issued a warning of “a heightened threat environment,” including possible attacks against such institutions as churches and the police, as the 2024 election draws closer. Just The News reports that the Memorial Day bulletin issued by the DHS also warned of political violence that could be sparked by “legislative or judicial decisions pertaining to sociopolitical issues.” “The United States remains in a heightened threat environment,” the bulletin declares. “Lone offenders and small groups motivated by a range of ideological beliefs and personal grievances continue to pose a persistent and lethal threat to the...

    Allies of former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie reportedly launched a super PAC to support his likely run for the presidency. The New York Times, citing unnamed sources, reported Monday that Christie's 2024 campaign kickoff is expected in the next two weeks. The political action committee, called Tell It Like It Is, will be led by Brian Jones, an aide who advised Sen. John McCain's presidential bid in 2008 and Mitt Romney's in 2012. In a statement to the Times, Jones said Christie "is willing to confront the hard truths that currently threaten the future of the Republican Party. Now...

    San Francisco Mayor London Breed is pushing back against reports of a retail “collapse” in the city’s downtown, saying that the departure of many high-end stores is the result of “changes to retail” in the economy in general. As Breitbart News has reported, there is an ongoing retail exodus from San Francisco, particularly in the area around Union Square and Market Street, at the terminus of the city’s famed cable car, where tourists arrive. The reasons are many, but chief among them is the rise of crime in the downtown area, which spiked with the emergence of “mass looting” events,...

    Sure, only a third of American eighth graders are “proficient” in reading, just a quarter in math, and barely one in ten when it comes to U.S. history. But now, high-school students near you may get to spend up to seven weeks of class time asking “How does white rage fuel the racial wealth gap?” before lobbying their peers on what model “the U.S. should use to determine and provide monetary” reparations to descendants of slaves. Indeed, last week, the same minds who brought you prolonged school shutdowns extracted nearly $200 billion from taxpayers in Covid slush funds, unleashed unprecedented...
  • US cities to pay record $80m to people injured in 2020 racial justice protests

    Cities across the US have agreed to pay out a total of more than $80m in settlements to protesters injured by police during 2020 racial justice protests – a figure experts believe is unprecedented and will rise further as many lawsuits are still playing out. The brutal murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police officers on 25 May 2020 sparked the largest nationwide demonstrations since the civil rights era, as upwards of 26 million people gathered to protest racism and police brutality. But, three years later, at least 19 US cities will pay more than $80m total to protesters who...

    Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors has been quietly let go from her Warner Bros TV deal after producing no content. Cullors, 39, signed the deal with the media giant in 2020 to much fanfare but it ended in secret in October 2022, it emerged on Friday. The deal, unfortunately, did not result in any produced shows,' a source told the New York Post. Cullors claimed in January 2022 that she was working on a documentary about how reparations were similar to the idea of landback, where Native Americans got back their lands, and another about black social mobility. She...

    MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A man who drove the car that helped pull down the statue of a Civil War hero and abolitionist outside of the Wisconsin state Capitol during a night of protests in 2020 has been sentenced to six months in jail. The statue of Hans Christian Heg was toppled and beheaded during a protest in downtown Madison in June 2020 against police brutality. Protests began a month earlier over the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police and flared up again that June after Madison police arrested a Black activist. Kelsey D. Nelson, 33, was sentenced for...

    Black Lives Matter bled cash and suffered blistering investment losses in 2022, according to a copy of its tax return obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation ran an $8.5 million deficit and saw the value of its investment accounts plummet by nearly $10 million in the most recent tax year, financial disclosures show. The group logged a $961,000 loss on a securities sale of $172,000, suggesting the charity weathered a staggering 85 percent loss on the transaction. These troubles didn’t stop BLM from doling out seven-figure contracts to friends and family of its former...

All the members of Occupy Wall Street, Antifa and BLM are capitalists, even if they don’t know it or won’t admit it.Capital is anything used in production that is not a free gift of the earth like land or human effort like labor or entrepreneurship.

    Black Lives Matter ended last year on a nearly $9 million deficit — while still paying out millions to organizers as well as relatives of controversial co-founder Patrisse Cullors. Tax documents shared by The Washington Free Beacon show that BLM’s Global Network Foundation ended the financial year in the red to the tune of $8,559,748. The filings show that the non-profit recorded revenue of $8.5 million — roughly half the more than $17 million it spent. That deficit is made even more extreme given that the previous year it actually increased its piggybank, earning nearly $42 million after expenses. The...

    Black Lives Matter's national organization is at risk of going bankrupt after its finances plunged $8.5 million into the red last year - while simultaneously handing multiple staff seven-figure salaries. Financial disclosures obtained by The Washington Free Beacon show the perilous state of BLM's Global Network Foundation, which officially emerged in November 2020, as a more formal way of structuring the civil rights movement. For the previous year, 2021, tax filings revealed that BLM paid a company owned by Damon Turner, the father of Cullors' child, nearly $970,000 to help 'produce live events' and provide other 'creative services.' While Patrisse...
