    At 15, Mimi Groves said the n-word word in an attempt to be 'cool,' and the video sat for years. It wasn't until it was weaponized against her that anyone cared at all.A high school senior is proud of having ruined a classmate’s life by posting a three-second video clip the classmate had long since forgotten about. In fact, he thinks of it as a learning moment, and he’s happy about it. So is The New York Times.In an article that went viral over the weekend, Times writer Dan Levin walked readers through the triumphant tale of Jimmy Galligan, who...
  • Trump’s Growth In Support Among Minorities Destroys Racism Narrative

    Liberals are tying themselves in knots trying to explain President Trump’s growing popularity among Black and Hispanic voters. The left is heavily invested in the narrative it has constructed of Donald Trump as an unrepentant “white nationalist” whose supposedly “racist” rhetoric is driving minorities away from the Republican Party in droves. The president’s critics have repeated this lie so many times that they’ve actually started to believe it — which is making for some highly amusing logical contortions as they try to navigate their own cognitive dissonance.At first, all they had to do was dismiss the accuracy of polls showing...

    The tragic death of George Floyd and recent events have fueled widespread protests and a renewed call for racial equality nationwide. Amid this, our country has been compelled to reflect on issues that are often uncomfortable, and leaders have been driven to examine their organizations in ways like never before. The Air Force, in many ways, is no different. But as a war-fighting organization we cannot afford to squander this moment, because our future — and national security — depends on it. Pursuing equality means we must be sure that we are attracting the most capable members of our society,...

    Fairfax County spent $44,000 on promoting critical race theorist Ibram X. Kendi for this one event—almost an entire year’s salary for a first-year teacher. FAIRFAX COUNTY, Va. — Sitting in their living rooms, kitchens, and dining rooms on the morning of August 6, principals, teachers, and other leaders from Fairfax County Public Schools here in northern Virginia tuned into an “exclusive” one-hour “conversation” with author Ibram Kendi. The bill: $20,000, or $333.33 per minute of the chat.Because I was curious what my son’s school district had spent for a one-hour talk by a celebrity author, I broke the news...
  • Breonna Taylor Case: Black Kentucky Attorney General Called 'Sellout,' Compared to Slavemaster

    Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron, who spoke at the Republican National Convention, declined to bring murder charges against the three white officers involved in the tragic shooting of Louisville's Breonna Taylor, a Black woman. Contrary to the public assertion made by a Taylor family lawyer, Cameron, who is Black, said the Louisville police did not go to the wrong address when executing a search warrant. Nor was Taylor shot and killed in her bed, as also publicly asserted by the family lawyer. Ben Crump, a spokesman and defense attorney for the Taylor family, falsely claimed the police went to the...

    America under the sway of the Black Lives Matter movement is reminding me of life in the Soviet Union: One's entire existence is premised on something believed to be untrue. The worst thing about socialism is not empty grocery stores or even the Gulags. The worst thing is harder to represent visually or to pinpoint, but it’s inescapable, and its damage extends for generations. The worst thing about socialism is what being forced to live a lie does to one’s psyche. Save for the few true believers whose numbers dwindle as time passes, virtually everyone experiences this mental toll.By “living...

    When Oprah said that “whiteness” gave the poorest of the poor an advantage over blacks, strangely, it reminded me of Whitney Houston. Houston went from singing the most heart-stirring version of the national anthem I’d ever heard in 1991, to the reality show train wreck that tarnished all she ever did in life.   “Crack is whack!” she told a skeptical Diane Sawyer in a 2002 Primetime interview. “I partied a lot, trust me. [But] You get to a point where you know the party’s over.” Sawyer tried to make her see the obvious, but Whitney wasn’t listening.I remember wondering whether the...

    Sports journalist Jason Whitlock wrote Tuesday that the early narrative surrounding the death of George Floyd amounted to a "race hoax" after leaked body camera footage of the incident that led to Floyd's death May 25 was made public. "The George Floyd case is not a race crime," Whitlock, who is Black, wrote on OutKick.com. "No rational person can watch that footage and conclude the police were motivated by Floyd’s Black race." The footage shows four Minneapolis police officers struggling with Floyd before one of them, Derek Chauvin, ultimately pins Floyd to the ground in a scene that was broadcast...

The confrontation was captured on cellphone video. Takelia Hill, who is black, told the Detroit Free Press that her daughter asked Wuestenberg to apologize after she bumped into her outside of a...

    Lin-Manuel Miranda issued an apology to fans of Hamilton for the Broadway show’s failure to publicly denounce systemic racism sooner on Saturday. The 40-year-old playwright and actor also affirmed the show’s support for the Black Lives Matter, as protests have roiled major cities across the nation in the wake of the death of George Floyd. He began his short Twitter statement by pointing out how quickly the show was to respond to previous crises and incidents of racism and hatred. “We spoke out on the day of the Pulse shooting. We spoke out when Vice President Mike Pence came to...

    EXCLUSIVE: ABC News will present three days of special coverage to how the coronavirus has reflected, exposed or exacerbated racial, ethnic and socioeconomic divides. Starting on Wednesday, the reports, titled Pandemic — A Nation Divided, will appear across all of the network’s platforms. The series is rooted in statistics showing a disproportionate impact of the virus on African Americans and Latinos and other communities. For instance, in New York City, African Americans are twice as likely to die of the virus, according to the network. In Washington, D.C., Latinos have been seven times more likely to be infected than white...

    On Tuesday, the hosts of CBS This Morning warned viewers that common words and phrases with no racial context whatsoever were now somehow examples of “racism” in everyday life. It was all part of a segment designed to promote a “new book teaching kids the roots of racism.” “Many headlines referred to the stock market plunge yesterday as ‘Black Monday,’ and that is just one of the subtle and not-so-subtle ways that racism has been braided into our everyday culture,” co-host Tony Dokoupil lectured at the top of the 8:30 a.m. ET half hour

    Imagine you’re trying to count every single person living in the United States. There are two main ways that you can mess up; you can count some people twice and you can miss some people out. In 2010, the Census Bureau made both mistakes, as it always does, because counting people is hard. It double-counted about 3% of people and omitted another 3% and, because those mistakes work in opposite directions, the overall population count was almost perfectly accurate. What’s revealing though is who gets counted twice and who gets left out altogether. That’s where race has historically played a...

    As we head back to South Carolina, the state that fought to protect the white primary until the 1950s, it’s as if black voters don’t matter – again In 1896, a moment marked by increased lynchings, violence and disfranchisement, South Carolina added to the woes and created the white primary. The law, which the rest of the one-party south would adopt throughout the Jim Crow era, said only white people could vote in the Democratic primary election. White people, mostly men, would alone choose who would go on to the general election in November. Then, and only then could African...

    At a recent rally, President Donald Trump got cheers from supporters as he positioned himself and his administration as an important line of defense in the supposed “War on Thanksgiving,” an evocative image of the threat posed by progressives to America’s cherished cultural traditions, as they wish to include a more inclusive narrative of the holiday’s history. A clearer example of the racially divisive attitudes harbored and perhaps even enabled by this administration is represented by White House adviser, Stephen Miller. Miller was recently found to have written hundreds of emails demonstrating his support for white nationalist ideology. Whether spinning...

    Two 17-year-old boys accused of harassing four African-American middle schoolgirls — using racial slurs and urinating on one of the victims — are facing charges including bias intimidation and lewdness. Police say the boys are of Indian descent. Instead of asking what the boys’ reported racial identity tells us about the nature of the attack, we should see the boys as enacting American whiteness through anti-black assault in a very traditional way.
