Good grief: The head of the Missouri Chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People said Thursday that a rodeo clown who donned a mask of President Obama at the Missouri State Fair had committed a hate crime. “I think that a hate crime has occurred,” Mary Ratliff told KXNT Radio in […]

 

Props to @DonLemonCNN regarding his contributions to the national convo on race

In the days and weeks following the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial, many pundits, politicos, and average Joe and Jane Americans were calling for the national dialogue on race we’ve needed to have for a long time but can’t thanks to lifetime race hustlers like Rev. Al Sharpton, Rev. Jesse Jackson, and their race-baiting […]

 

Unhinged Democrat Rangel: Tea Party like Old South racists, GOP worse than terrorists

Posted by: ST on August 2, 2013 at 3:02 pm » 7 Comments

Disgusting – but not surprising he’d say this kind of garbage (hat tip): There is little question that Rangel is nearing the end. First elected 43 years ago, after having defeated the man whose name adorns the building where the congressman keeps his office, he is musing aloud now about what he once forbade anyone to […]

**Posted by Phineas There’s a great article by Shelby Steele in the Wall St. Journal on the decline and decay of the American civil rights movement, a fall made almost inevitable by its very success.  And, on the so-called leaders of today’s movement, Steele nails the real reasons they went after George Zimmerman: to pretend they’re still […]

 

Can’t make it up: Liberals accuse *conservatives* of overuse of the race card

Posted by: ST on July 20, 2013 at 9:12 am » 7 Comments

Danger, danger! Time for a reality check, liberals. Sadly, liberal blogger Josh Marshall was indicative last night in expressing and agreeing with the line of thinking of several influential left-wing writer/commentator types on the issue of racism, and I called him out on it: @joshtpm "As 'racism' has been redefined on right as talking abt […]

Posted by: ST on June 28, 2013 at 9:32 am » 13 Comments

As everyone knows already, the trial of George Zimmerman in the death of Trayvon Martin started on Monday. I’ve not been able to watch it live but have kept up with it pretty well through a Twitter list of journos and other key players I created.  The list is like a virtual play by play […]
