Baker, a Republican, signed the measure on Friday as part of a supplemental coronavirus spending bill. He said making June 19 an annual state holiday would help "recognize the continued need to ensure racial freedom and equality."

    No group of people is in greater need of a hobby than social justice warriors. Yes, they think they have one. But toppling statues of long-dead people is more of an activity, and likely the closest these mutant army members have come to weightlifting in their lives if you don’t count curls with Mao’s Little Red Book. In the absence of any meaning in their lives, they’ve found meaning in ruining the lives of others. But they aren’t content with that, because each victory is as empty as the space behind their angry, vacant eyes. Finding nothing to give them...
  • Not The Onion: NY Times on Minneapolis Liberals Trying Not to Call the Cops

    It wasn't meant to be funny but when you read Wednesday's New York Times story about virtue-signaling liberals living in the Minneapolis neighborhood of Powderhorn Park trying to avoid calling police despite rising crime due to a new homeless encampment it comes off as hilarious inadvertent comedy. A big factor in the comedic entertainment is provided by Times reporter Caitlin Dickerson writing in all seriousness about how the besieged neighborhood liberals can enforce the law without actually calling law enforcement. The comedy begins with the very title of the story, "A Minneapolis Neighborhood Vowed to Check Its Privilege. It’s Already...

  • Nestlé to change 'out of step' Red Skins and Chicos brands

    Nestlé is rebranding its Red Skins and Chicos sweets, saying that their controversial names — which feature offensive racial overtones — are "out of step" with the company's values. The products, which are sold in Australia, have prompted complaints for several years. Allen's, the Nestlé (NSRGF) brand which produces the sweets, said in a statement posted to Facebook on Tuesday that the decision to rename the products was made to avoid marginalizing its friends, neighbors and colleagues. Redskin is a slur used to describe Native Americans, while chico can be a stereotypical term for Latin Americans.

    American Thinker ^ | June 21, 2020 | Clarice Feldman
    ... As soon as the mayhem began in Minnesota, a number of houses on the next block sprouted commercially prepared lawn signs supporting Black Lives Matter. (Many of these same homes earlier sported lawn signs saying “Hate has no Home here” and “All Are Welcome” when the President halted immigration from countries where background checks were decidedly unreliable.) Frankly, I was never under the impression that black lives didn’t matter. I’m old school enough to think all lives matter. Indeed, I think treating all people equally and entitled to the protection of their person, property, and rights of civil enjoyment...

    Prince Harry has backed the moves to ban Swing Low, Sweet Chariot from rugby games due to its association with slavery. He has sung the rugby anthem many times since childhood and he is a fan and patron of the Rugby Football Union (RFU). Prince Harry has signaled support for the RFU’s review into the song, written by Wallace Willis, a freed Oklahoma slave, in light of the Black Lives Matter movement, The Sunday Times reported. The anthem rings around the stands at Twickenham and is being reviewed by the RFU, which has launched a wide-ranging probe into racism. Written...

The guidelines shared by Mayor Horvath went on to advise: “Don’t join in on the chant ‘Whose streets? Our Streets!’ – these streets are not ‘Our Streets.’ Instead, carry signs and participate in chants that challenge white supremacy.” The suggested protocols also discouraged white people from speaking...

    VIDEO Almost unnoticed in the coverage of the Democrats performing a virtue signal kneeling ceremony in the U.S. Capitol was the fact that one of them did not kneel... Jerry Nadler. Perhaps he knew he would suffer the same fate as Nancy Pelosi and not be able to get up. Also he might have known that too much weight on his knee would require more than one person to help him get up namely a paramedic team. Another factor could be that he knew that something could rip on the way down. Fortunately for Nadler, he barely appeared much...

She took to Instagram on Monday, sharing resources that explain the movement in detail following the death of George Floyd at the hands of police on May 25. The 38-year-old said: 'My whole life, police have made me feel safe. But that's exactly the center of my white privilege.

    Thousands of Facebook workers demanded that their boss, CEO Mark Zuckerberg, flag President Trump’s controversial post about ‘looting and shooting’ as a third employee has resigned in protest of the company’s hands-off policy. Internal documents leaked to The Washington Post revealed that most of the 5,500 Facebook employees who voted in a poll wanted Zuckerberg to change the company’s policy allowing politicians virtually unfettered free speech. ‘Fact checking and removal of hate speech shouldn’t be exempt for politicians,’ the Facebook employees wrote. This demand was raised before Zuckerberg when the boss held a virtual town hall this week.

    To @realdonaldtrump Through my ongoing conversations with friends, teammates, and leaders in the black community, I realize this is not an issue about the American flag. It has never been. We can no longer use the flag to turn people away or distract them from the real issues that face our black communities. We did this back in 2017, and regretfully I brought it back with my comments this week. We must stop talking about the flag and shift our attention to the real issues of systemic racial injustice, economic oppression, police brutality, and judicial & prison reform. We are...

    Serena Williams' Reddit co-founder husband Alexis Ohanian has resigned from the company's board because he is a 'father who needs to be able to answer his black daughter when she asks: 'What did you do?'' The tech founder, who shares two-year-old daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian, Jr. with his tennis star wife, made the shock announcement in a video uploaded to his Instagram page around midday Friday. In the footage, he says he is stepping down 'for me, for my family, and for my country' so that his seat on the board can be filled by a black candidate and so...
