  • Wisconsin’s Capitol City Is Trying To Ban White People From Police Oversight Board

    Heralded as a serious effort at 'equity' and 'inclusion,' Madison’s Police Civilian Oversight Board openly states that white people need not apply and are not welcome.When Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. took to the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in 1963 to deliver his famous “I Have a Dream” speech, he offered Americans, of all races, a compelling vision of a society no longer prejudiced by race. He envisioned a country where citizens are judged “by the content of their character” and not “the color of their skin.” But to listen to today’s most prominent “antiracists,” King’s dream is what...
  • The Compromise of 2021

    2020 is shaping up to be the most hotly contested presidential election since 1876. In that inauspicious year, as you may recall, Democrat Samuel Tilden won the popular vote, but after a protracted Electoral College battle, Republican Rutherford B. Hayes was declared the winner in exchange for his promise to end Reconstruction and remove federal troops from the South.The Compromise of 1877 – as it was called – was a historical tragedy which paved the ways for decades of Jim Crow. However, the precedent it set could be used for nobler purposes today. Donald Trump should take a leaf from...
  • Democrats & Jim Crow: A Century of Racist History the Democratic Party Prefers You'd Forget

    In the last Presidential election, Donald Trump was lauded for his performance among black voters – he scored 4 percent of female black voters and a whopping 13 percent of black male voters, the highest since Richard Nixon. This isn’t shocking. Black voters have voted en masse for the Democratic Party since the mid-60s and the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act and the social welfare programs of the Great Society. This solidified black voters behind the Democratic Party, but they had been moving there since the New Deal. However, it’s a historical anomaly in...
  • NYU student group demands Black-only student housing on campus

    New York University officials signaled they are open to a student group's demands to create Black residence floors on campus next year, but the petition is already receiving backlash for proposing students segregate themselves. "[Residential] Life staff have reached out to the authors of the petition to discuss how we might move forward with their goals," an NYU spokesperson told Washington Square News, NYU's student newspaper. "Given the COVID-related challenges to the student housing system for 2020-2021, these conversations would be aiming towards 2021-2022.” A "themed engagement floor" for Black students is being pushed by a group called Black Violets...
  • Government institutions are driving anti-white racism in America

    American Thinker ^ | 08/22/2020 | Andrea Widburg
    One of the things people forget when they consider the scourge of Jim Crow is that it lasted so long because it was a government institution. Those white people who would have liked to rent hotel rooms or give restaurant seats to black people, whether because of principle or for profit, were not allowed to do so. The Southern Democrat governments made racism a state institution. That Jim Crow mindset – which sees the government enforcing racism – is reappearing across America.To appreciate why this is happening, one has to remember that leftism is, by definition, an institutional ideology....

    In 1857, the Supreme Court, with 7 of the 9 Justices being Democrat, decided that Dred Scott was not a citizen, but property. Chief Justice Roger Taney was appointed by the first Democrat President, Andrew Jackson. Taney wrote in his Dred Scott decision that slaves were "so far inferior ... that the Negro might justly and lawfully be reduced to slavery for their own benefit." Abraham Lincoln rejected this. He did not believe in "stare decisis" - that he had to honor the precedent of the Dred Scott decision, stating June 28, 1857: "We think the Dred Scott decision is...

    The death of Congressman and civil rights icon John Lewis, coming as it has amidst urban riots in Democrat-run cities following the murder of George Floyd by a deranged cop in a Democrat-run city offer the Democrats another opportunity for a Paul Wellstone-type funeral, a somber event to be transformed into a political rally in an election year. The October 29, 2002 funeral service for the late Sen. Paul Wellstone of Minnesota quickly morphed into a political rally against the administration of Bush 43. The Democrats filled the basketball arena chosen for the event and if you never heard booing...

    The HBG Flea, a monthly “curated pop-up market,” has announced that it will hold its first event since March, a limited event on Saturday that will require face masks and encourage social distancing. “We’re excited to be back - this is like our family and we miss the vendors and community a lot,” Mary Imgrund and Meghan Weaver, co-founders of The HBG Flea said in an e-mail. The show’s organizers also announced via its Facebook page earlier this week that in an attempt to be more inclusive, people of color from here on out will be able to get a...

    The Washington Times ^ | June 16, 2020 | Aubrey Shines
    The great irony here is that yes, there’s plenty of systemic racism in our country; it’s all wrapped up in the history of the Democratic Party. The rot goes deep, back to the post-Civil War era. Former slaves and their children were forced for decades to endure the cruel, wretched Jim Crow laws that kept them from advancing in the South. And who was all too happy to keep those laws in place? The Democrats. Systemic racism is indeed a vile problem, one that must be addressed immediately. When Democrats stop pointing fingers and look in the mirror, we can...

    Democrats like to pretend they have a long history of fighting racism, but the truth is that it was Democrats who supported slavery, upheld Jim Crow laws, and were so deeply involved in the Ku Klux Klan that the 1924 Democratic National Convention at Madison Square Garden in New York City is called the “Klanbake” convention. Republicans fought against slavery in the south while Democrats defended it, and while Democrats pushed for segregation and Jim Crow laws, Republicans supported the Civil Rights act of 1964. The Democratic Party’s history of racism is undeniable in the picture below, taken at the...

    Wait long enough, and everything comes around again. Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), one of the wokest womyn in the world, has this week blazed bold new trails by calling for the revival of not one, but two tried-and-true practices that have inexplicably fallen into neglect in American politics: Jim Crow segregation laws and the arrest of one’s political opponents. This brave leader said in a Detroit speech that if Trump Cabinet members failed to comply with congressional subpoenas, “they’re trying to figure out, no joke, is it the D.C. police that goes and gets them? We don’t know. Where do...

    Editor's Note: The column was co-authored by Lori Roman. America’s founders understood that the right to own firearms — the right to use effectual force to defend oneself, one’s family, one’s neighborhood, one’s nation — was the difference between a mere subject and a free, independent, equal citizen. The United States was designed to enjoy a government of, by, and for the people, as President Lincoln put it. To that end every citizen was entitled, and often required, to own firearms. On the frontier, defending the community was the responsibility of every man.For black communities, however, the threat has rarely...

    OK, CNN. Meaning CNN could go even lower, drilling through the rock to fall into some netherworld. Though the original tweet has been deleted, the question and quote remain in the original article. (The Daily Show's Amber Ruffin, among others, captured the original in all its unglory.)

    COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Former Vice President Joe Biden charged Saturday that Jim Crow is “sneaking back in” as he emphasized voting rights at his first presidential campaign stop in South Carolina, where black voters play a key role in the South’s first presidential primary.In criticizing Republican efforts to adopt more stringent voting rules, including identification requirements and curtailing early voting hours, Biden recalled the racial segregation laws of the past.“You’ve got Jim Crow sneaking back in,” he said, referring to the era before the civil rights movement. “You know what happens when you have an equal right to vote?...

    The long arm of the PC police has reached back to the ’30s and arrested, prosecuted, and sentenced the late singer Kate Smith. Smith, who popularized Irving Berlin’s song “God Bless America” and was a female pioneer in early television, recorded songs that today in hindsight are viewed as racist. An old friend, Harry Covert, writes to recall the early days of black-and-white TV when he (and I) watched Smith’s television program. Covert remembers one show interrupted by a news bulletin announcing the attempted assassination of Harry S. Truman by militant Puerto Rican activists. He notes that today’s Puerto Ricans...

    There’s an odious Supreme Court case from 1971, Palmer v. Thompson, that most people don’t remember and that most who do remember wish they could forget. It’s a relic of a bygone era—one of the last pieces of the Jim Crow system that the Supreme Court ever sustained. On our current Supreme Court, Palmer v. Thompson looks to be having a moment. Its reasoning stealthily drove last year’s decision in Trump v. Hawaii, in which the court’s five-justice conservative majority upheld the travel restrictions that the president had planned during the campaign to be a “Muslim ban.” And this week’s...

    "One of the biggest arguments against the Democratic Party is centered around racism, so we ask the question, are the Democrats racist? Through-out the years, their members/affiliates have made blatant and also subtle racist remarks which the party does not deny (mostly). The interesting part, though, is that their main line of defense is a claim that doesn’t really have any grounds to it. The claim is that the Democratic and Republican parties have at some point switched stances in terms of racism." *Warning: This article was written by me, if posting it is not appropriate let me know and...

    " “Those two teachers had to deal with all of us each and every day,” she remembers. “But they made sure that we were not leaving Prospect until we were ready for the next level.” Prospect was Scott County’s only African-American school. It was located at the top of the hill on Manville Road in Gate City, in the communities known locally as Sticktown and Trot. The historic school closed because of integration in 1964, and the recent reunion was the first time the alumni had ever gathered as a group to catch up with one another. ... the new...
