Kaepernick Forgot One Thing In His Drive To Become A Black Lives Matter Hero

Posted by: ST on September 3, 2016 at 12:52 pm » 1 Comment

Much has been written in the aftermath of San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s highly controversial decision to sit during the national anthem prior to the start of all 2016 pre-season games, mostly notably last week’s 49ers game against the Green Bay Packers at Levi’s Stadium. Most commentary has revolved around Kaepernick’s “right” to speak his […]

 

My latest at IJ Review

My two most recent posts at IJ Review deal with hot button topics that have captured both statewide and national attention in recent weeks. One has to do with the emerging issue in the south of Confederate monuments/memorials being vandalized, and North Carolina has become no stranger to the issue. There were two back to […]

 

NC NAACP oversight fail of local chapter’s election causes national org to step in

My latest at IJ Review discusses how the national NAACP has stepped in to investigate the Winston-Salem, NC branch after allegations and complaints surfaced of vote tampering, paper ballots (supposedly against the rules), and campaign literature being illegally distributed at a January election of executive board members.   Because there had been so much dissension last […]

 

#Hillary2016’s pre-campaign hires spark allegations of “white dudefest 2016”

Posted by: ST on January 26, 2015 at 5:29 pm » 6 Comments

The Daily Beast’s Tim Mak has an unintentionally hilarious piece on the state of La Clinton’s “pre-campaign” hires and how the current “all-white, all-male” cast has Democrat strategists hitting the panic button: Hillary Clinton’s pre-presidential campaign has made some high-profile hires recently—but all of them, so far, are white males. And Democrats have noticed. Does […]

Oh. My. Man shopping for coffee creamer at Walmart attacked by vigilante for carrying gun he was legally permitted to have Clarence Daniels had just crossed the threshold of Walmart’s front doors on Tuesday, in search of coffee creamer for his wife, when the gun in hip holster gave a well-intentioned vigilante the idea he […]

 

How about we stop demanding apologies from public figures?

Posted by: ST on January 20, 2015 at 8:58 pm » 3 Comments

For the very simple reason that most of the time it’s forced – and they really don’t mean them anyway. And making them rationalize their remarks in depth serves to expose them even more. Brought this up after reading the story of an MSNBC contributor who made a despicable remark about Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-LA), […]

 

(Video) Who are the real racists: liberals or conservatives?

Posted by: Phineas on October 27, 2014 at 1:14 pm » 6 Comments

**Posted by Phineas If you’re a conservative, or just someone who thinks everyone should be treated equally, you’ve probably been called a racist at one point or another. And if, like most people, you’re a decent person, you’ve probably been taken aback and left wondering if maybe, subconsciously, you did hold beliefs and attitudes that […]

 

“Why is racism treated differently when it comes from the left?”

A fantastic column from Ron Christie in today’s Daily Beast regarding the disgusting racist attacks being waged by Democrats in Kentucky against former Secretary of Labor (and wife of KY Senator/Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell) Elaine Cho (hat tip): But Democrats who imagine racist slights and “dog whistles” at every turn would be wise to […]

 

LOL: CBC upset DCCC supports overturn of #FLGOP redistricting, implies racism

Posted by: ST on August 5, 2014 at 9:24 am » Comments Off on LOL: CBC upset DCCC supports overturn of #FLGOP redistricting, implies racism

I’ll be chuckling over this one for a while: Black Democrats in Congress are sharply criticizing their party’s leadership for supporting efforts to overturn the GOP-drawn congressional map in Florida and cut into Republicans’ House majority. Last week, Congressional Black Caucus Chairwoman Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) sent a sharply worded letter to Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman […]

 

Tampon earring-wearing MSNBC host equates Gov. Perry to segregationists

Posted by: ST on July 28, 2014 at 12:31 pm » 2 Comments

Another stuck-on-stupid moment from MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry (via Jeffrey Meyer at Newsbusters): Weekend MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry is known for making controversial statements about race, such as when she mocked Mitt Romney for having adopted black grandson, and on Saturday, July 26 she made yet another controversial statement on race. Perry used her weekend platform […]
