Black college students will pay a price because the country’s largest government employee union doesn’t like the conservative philanthropist Koch brothers.
BuzzFeed reports that the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees didn’t like that the United Negro College Fund accepted $25 million from Koch Industries and the Charles Koch Foundation, and that the fund’s president spoke at a Koch-funded summit.
Naturally, the appropriate target is black college students.
AFSCME’s relationship with the UNCF revolved around their Union Scholars Program, in which sophomore- and junior-year college students could work with AFSCME during the summer and receive scholarship support aftwerward [sic].
That program will cease on Sept. 1.
“We must hold ourselves to the same standards that we promote through the Union Scholars Program,” [union president Lee] Saunders wrote. “To practice what we preach, to fight for social justice, and to stand up for what we beleive [sic]. I cannot in good conscience face these students or AFSCME’s members if I looked the other way and ignored your actions.”
The Wire says that’s no chump change for students:
For over a decade sophomores and juniors have been able to intern with the union, and received a $4,000 stipend plus a $5,000 scholarship. A union spokesman told The Huffington Post that AFSCME donates $50,000 to $60,000 a year for the scholarship program and “hundreds of thousands” of dollars annually.
The college fund gave a pleasant middle finger to the union, telling BuzzFeed:
“UNCF has over 100,000 donors with a wide range of views, but they all have one thing in common: they believe in helping young students of color realize their dreams of a college education. For over 70 years we have never had a litmus test and we have asked all Americans to support our cause.”
If you get your news from the Obama Administration or the U.S. State Department you probably haven’t heard about this yet. That’s because the U.S. President, a man who far too often comments on issues of racism with the purpose of stirring emotions, has not held a press conference about what might be the largest act of racism in modern history.
It is now confirmed that President of Zimbabwe Robert Mugabe has sealed the deal as dictator and declared that whites are no longer allowed to own land in his country. He’s officially booting all white farmers and taking their land.
Via Daily Nation.
The 90 year-old old leader, who launched a violent land reform programme in 2,000 that displaced the majority of the 4,000 white commercial farmers, on Wednesday said Zimbabwe was no country for white farmers.
“There are white farmers who are still on the land and have the protection of some Cabinet ministers and politicians as well as traditional leaders,” President Mugabe said.
“That should never happen and we will deal with ministers but as for our chiefs we do not want to harass you. We do not want trouble.
“I have been given a list of 35 white farmers in Mashonaland West (province) alone and in just a few districts that have been audited.
“We say no to whites owning our land and they should go.
“They can own companies and apartments in our towns and cities but not the soil.
“It is ours and that message should ring loud and clear in Britain and the United States.”
President Mugabe has often justified the wholesale seizure of productive farms saying he was correcting historical injustices.
This ignorant statement ignores the fact that most of these farmers, if not all of them, personally had nothing to do with any ‘historical injustices.’ This sets a dangerous precedence and it’s shameful the world’s leaders aren’t denouncing it.
If only she was a Democrat then MSNBC would have a week’s worth of programming.
A Florida Republican congressional candidate’s campaign sign was vandalized with whiteface paint last week in a district with overwhelmingly Democratic voter registration. The attack follows a string of bias incidents against black Republicans.
Glo Smith, who reports that she has also had a number of signs stolen, tells National Review Online she became aware of the racist defacement of an eight-foot-by-four-foot sign Tuesday. The sign was situated on private property in view of Interstate 10 in Jacksonville. The vandal sprayed white paint over the face of Smith, who is African-American. The paint job appears to be carefully done and leaves the eyes untouched, creating a very creepy effect.
Police in Cleveland, Ohio are investigating what they suspect may be a hate crime after a 13 year-old girl attacked a 10 year-old.
The teenage attacker is black; the 10 year-old is white.
A YouTube video shows the camera was rolling before the attack, suggesting that it might have been planned. The attacker is seen looking back at the camera before springing towards the 10 year-old, who was riding by on a scooter.
A narrator behind the camera is then heard calling for an end to the beating, saying “Alright,” and then the name of the attacking girl.
Witnesses to the beating said that the 13 year-old called her younger victim a “cracker,” according to the Cleveland Plain-Dealer. Other neighbors corroborated that the girl has hurled the slur at her children as well, according to a 19 Action News telecast.
“The little girl next door taunts my daughters too,” said a neighbor of the 13 year-old attacker. “She tells them she doesn’t like them because they’re white.”
“Nobody was waiting,” a woman at the attacker’s home told 19 Action News. “I don’t have to talk to you. It’ll all come out in court.”

I do not enjoy being “mean” to this woman, but she is as dumb as a box of rocks. Honestly, does she think before speaking?
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry drew parallels between the NBA and slavery on the Saturday episode of her eponymous show. She teased a segment on Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban by saying “you can’t really talk about reparations and ignore the modern day wealthy Americans who own teams made up predominantly of black men and profit from their bodies and labor.”
Harris-Perry’s segment on the NBA involved an update on the latest move to transfer ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers and video clips of Mark Cuban’s comments regarding racial prejudice. Harris-Perry then issued a summary of the two stories: “Wealthy owners, check. Profit made from the sale of black bodies, check. Racial angst, check.” Harris-Perry then teased a continuation of the show’s discussion of reparations for slavery.
Frankly I am getting to the point where stupidity of this magnitude hurts my head. In what alternate universe does Harris-Perry reside? In America, sometimes slaves were allowed to earn money, and keep it. But they were not “free” to choose for themselves. They were still slaves. In the NBA the players are free, and they make millions of dollars. No one is “selling” them, they are part of a team, and they are payed according to their ability. Harris-Perry really ought to consider what slavery was before she shoots her mouth off. Frankly, if a Conservative dared compare anything to slavery, people like Harris-Perry would jump all over them, calling them racists and accusing them of defending slavery. But, of course Liberals are allowed to play by very different rules aren’t they?
Sen. Ron Johnson tears into Sen. Rockefeller for calling Obamacare opponents racists, explaining very substantive reasons why he opposes Obamacare. And Johnson makes clear he doesn’t like being called a racist.
But make sure you watch all the way to the end because that’s where Rockefeller and Johnson get into it directly after Rockefeller tries to smear Sen. Johnson’s ideas over what healthcare should be.
Al Sharpton Defends Racist Rants: ‘It Was Only One Jew’
On May 3, 2014, Jason Mattera confronted Rev. Al Sharpton over his long history of racist rants.
This was great.
Sharpton said it was just one Jewish dude.
Via The Daily Surge:
Dr. David Pook, a professor at Granite State College, told the audience at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics that he helped write Common Core standards for English Language Arts in an effort to end “white privilege.”
“The reason why I helped write the standards and the reason why I am here today is that as a white male in society I am given a lot of privilege that I didn’t earn.”
The audience reacts with gasps, boos, and sounds of disbelief before a panel member yells “Hey!” to hush them.
So Common Core has racial and gender-based motivations – coming from this Administration’s Department of Education, who could be surprised? Promoting division has been a common theme throughout this presidency.
All Frank Otero wanted was a little help getting the word out about his campaign.
After meeting with Rep. Miguel Garcia, D-Albuquerque, at a political event, Garcia reached out.
“We talked on the phone he said he really wanted to help me and help my campaign,” Otero said.
And Garcia stayed true to his word, sending an email addressed to “Fellow House Members, Senate Colleagues, Elected Official Friends” Monday night.
That email enthusiastically backed Otero and fellow Valencia County Democrat Andrew Barreras in their bids in neighboring districts to unseat Republican Reps Kelly Fajardo and Alonzo Baldonado.
But Garcia also lobbed race-based attacks against Otero and Barreras’ primary opponents, fellow Democrats Jim Danner and Teresa Smith de Cherif. Under a section titled “Treachery in Our Ranks Undermine Barreras and Otero”, Garcia wrote:
A minority of unsuspecting Democratic leaders are supporting the Democratic Anglo newcomer opponents in Andrew’s and Frank’s primary races. Anglo Democrats with egos as big as Texas, mouths as big as the Grand Canyon, and much “green” [moolah] from the East and the West Coast.
Garcia’s money reference appears to be more to Smith de Cherif, who has raised more than $10,000 of her campaign funds from out of state per finance records posted online.
Otero immediately condemned Garcia’s racial comments against his opponent Tuesday.
“I just don’t believe in that,” Otero said. “My grandmother was half-Hispanic and half-Anglo. Some of those comments are offensive even to my family.”
“Those kind of comments just don’t fly in any capacity.”
Otero says he believes Garcia owes Danner an apology.
The remarks also caught the attention of House Speaker Ken Martinez, D-Grants, who says he’ll have a talk with Garcia.
“I just have to tell you I’m a little troubled by it and it really doesn’t reflect House Democratic values,” Martinez said in a phone interview. “I just don’t like race to raise its head as one of the issues you should vote one way or the other.”
Garcia declined to answer questions on his comments in the email or back off.
“I did not send the email to the media,” Garcia wrote in a text message. “I have nothing to share regarding my email seeking support for two outstanding candidates.”
Reached by phone, Andrew Barreras said he hadn’t seen the email yet. Also reached by phone, Danner declined to comment on Garcia’s attack on him. Smith de Cherif did not respond to an emailed request for comment in time for this story.
Garcia’s email also included another strange attack on a fellow Democratic representative. In talking about the balance of power in the House, Garcia said Democrats had a 37-33 edge over Republicans but currently “have a renegade Democrat who licks the Governor’s [armpits].”
That reference appears to be to Rep. Sandra Jeff, D-Crownpoint, who has sided with the Governor on several key issues. Jeff was tossed off the Democratic primary ballot after it was ruled she didn’t have enough valid petition signatures.
A family of eight, “just enjoying their Mother’s Day weekend in Savannah,” were savagely attacked by an unknown number of blacks in the Georgia city, that left several family members injured, including a 6-year-old girl who was “punched in the stomach.”
Family members said they had finished eating dinner in a Savannah restaurant and were walking along River Street.
According to a crime report from the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department posted on Facebook, an officer described responding to the family of Rob Gray, his brother-in-law and others.
“All of a sudden,” the police report said, “a black male and a black female forcefully walked through his [Mr. Thomas'] family bumping into him and the small children in his family.”
“Thomas then advised that he then said something to the black male about his actions. He then explained that the black male then stopped and turned around and charged at him and assaulted him. Mr. Thomas then advised that several more unknown black individual[s] came from behind and attacked his family including the children. Mr. Thomas advised that he does not know how many people were attacking him and his family, but they ran off after the assault,” the report said.
A surging number of black mob attacks, mostly on white victims, has been in the news for several years, and specific incidents have been documented in author Colin Flaherty’s book, “White Girl Bleed A Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It.“
The attacks include random mobs attacking visitors to their neighborhoods, people walking down streets near their own homes, and attacks at public events such as festivals and fairs. Among the attacks are those described as the “Knockout Game,” in which an attacker aims to hit someone in the head hard enough to knock him out.
Multiple fatalities have been reported because of the attacks, police confirm.
Of the Savannah attack, Flaherty said: “This is just one of a series of black mob violence episodes over the Mother’s Day weekend. And just the latest in a series of racial attacks in Savannah. Curiously the local paper has not run a story on this. But they did do a major story on a white-on-black attack involving a father and his stepdaughter’s boyfriend, labeling it a hate crime.
“They also had a major feature on turtle attacks. But nothing on a family of eight that is attacked, pursued, and chased into a local business, while the black mob that created the violence waited outside threatening more. This is the kind of racial violence and denial that happens far too often. And many people still deny it exists.”
Police said in their report that they contacted Roberta La Branche, Owen Thoma[s], Julia Thomas, Noa Thomas, Savannah Gray and Sara Thomas, who reported they were “OK.”
“I then noticed another injured family member of Mr. Thomas that had a left swollen eye. I then walked over to make contact and asked him his name. He replied, ‘Rob Gray,’ and he appeared to be upset due to the incident… [He] advised that he was held down and was punched in the eye.”
One of the victims posted an account on Facebook.
“In order to escape further attack we rushed into an ice cream/candy store which was merely 10 feet away from where the incident took place on the Riverwalk. Our attackers stood out front in a mob, waiting for us. The shop owner, yelled at us that he didn’t need any of this in his store to hurt his business.”
Authorities said they were checking nearby surveillance cameras for more information.
One vehicle also was damaged in the attack, police reported. The vehicle was a 2004 Infinity G35 and the driver side mirror was broken and was dented also on the rear driver side.
WTEV-TV said the visitors from Atlanta were “just enjoying their Mother’s Day weekend in Savannah.”
“I took a punch to my eye and cracked my orbital,” Rob Gray told the station.
“I was grabbed by the back of my head at a full run and he smashed my head into the car and I hit the ground,” said Jim Thomas. “This is a violent, malicious attack on a family of eight people.”
He told the station his wife was attacked, too.
“There was a man holding her by the nape of her neck, with her hair and dragging her,” he said. “My 6-year-old daughter was punched in the stomach by an adult.”
Gray said the incident was “devastating.”
“My family the whole way back was, ‘Daddy we thought you were going to die. We knew they were going to kill you.’”
Earlier on TV One’s “News One Now,” comedian Aries Spears told host Roland Martin that while he does believe not all white people are racist, as a race white people are known for racism, adding many cross their arms in anger at the mere mention of President Barack Obama’s name…
Imagine if a White comedian aid “not all Blacks are racists, but they are known for racism”. That comedian would be being raked over the coals, accused of being a racist, and might even be sent to re-education camp. But, double standards! Also note that this buffoon says he will support Obama no matter how bad he performs as president. He will support him, apparently ONLY because of his skin color. Again, THIS is racist, as is noted idiot Roland Martin who laughs over Spears remarks. So, where is the outrage? Oh, that is right, this does not fit the narrative.

So, Don Lemon love shim some Nation of Islam? The well documented anti-White, anti-Semitic, and openly anti-Gay hate group? I guess Left Wing hate is OK
A strange thing happened on CNN on Saturday May 3 prior to the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. CNN host Don Lemon, appearing alongside Professor Marc Lamont Hill, professed his admiration for the Nation of Islam, a well-known hate group.
Lemon proclaimed that Hill thinks he “look[s] like a member of the Nation of Islam. That’s okay. I like them. I live on 123rd Street. They’re always at 125th Street subway stop and I buy my Final Call.”
The Final Call is the official newspaper of the Nation of Islam, and Lemon cheered on their work: “I buy The Final Call…The Final Call today, the one that they were selling was about torture in America in American prisons. I buy it every time I see them.”
It seems odd that Lemon, who himself is openly gay, would endorse a group whose leader Louis Farrakhan has openly condemned gay marriage. Odds are that the Nation of Islam doesn’t share the same admiration for the CNN host. Despite this, Lemon seemed perfectly content supporting the Nation of Islam and even hyped their claims that U.S. prisoners were being tortured.
I would expect Lemon’s guest, noted buffoon and race baiter Marc Lamont Hill to be all in for the Black Klan, but I thought Lemon had better sense. Obviously he does not. Even the SPLC lists the nation of Islam as a hate group!
The ADL pulls no punches about the naked bigotry of the Nation
The Nation of Islam (NOI), the oldest Black Nationalist organization in the U.S., has maintained a consistent record of racism and anti-Semitism under the guise of instilling African-Americans with a sense of empowerment since its founding in the 1930s.
Under the guidance of Louis Farrakhan, who has expressed anti-Semitic and racist rhetoric for nearly 30 years as NOI leader, the organization has used its programs, institutions and publications to disseminate its message of hate. Despite this record, the NOI has been given a measure of legitimacy by some political and media figures.
Despite formally relinquishing his leadership role in September 2006 due to illness, Farrakhan continues to speak regularly on behalf of his organization at NOI and other events around the country. His public expressions of anti-Semitism have escalated significantly since 2009, during which time he has delivered several speeches and interviews rife with conspiracy theories about Jews and Israel, and about Jewish control of government, finance and entertainment.
During these speaking engagements, including his keynote address at the group’s 2011 Saviours’ Day convention, Farrakhan has promoted anti-Semitic charges of Jewish deicide, denied Jewish claim to the word “Semite” and charged that Blacks, not Jews, are the “real” children of Israel. He has also repeated many of his past accusations about Jewish involvement in the transatlantic slave trade and exploitation of Black labor in the cotton trade—accusations he has attempted to bolster by promoting multiple anti-Semitic books, including a second volume of the NOI’s anti-Semitic 1991 work, The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews.
In summer of 2010 Farrakhan joined with several African American Muslim leaders to form the Coalition of African American Muslims (CAAM). The initiative’s first major effort, a September press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, was held to express support for the controversial proposed Islamic community center near Ground Zero.
And Don Lemon wants to support these bigots? REALLY?
This strikes me as idiotic, and unconstitutional, and I wish every parent would not only tell their child to wear such a shirt, but would WALK them into the school wearing one themselves.
Students in a California school district will not be allowed to wear American flag T-shirts on Cinco de Mayo, due to concerns that such displays of patriotism would inflame racial tensions by offending Mexican students on their holiday.
The district’s policy concerned many free speech advocates, but was upheld by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
In response, Tea Party groups plan to protest outside Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill. And they will be wearing American flag T-shirts.
The trouble dates back to Cinco de Mayo in 2010, when the school forced four students to remove their American flag T-shirts. Administrators worried that fighting would break out between white and Latino students if the shirts were noticed, and so the four offending students were sent home.
The practice of limiting one group’s free speech rights because that speech might cause another group to react violently is known as the “heckler’s veto.” It is understood by free speech enthusiasts to have a chilling effect on First Amendment rights.
This is, I must say unacceptable by any reasonable standard. Not only is it an unnecessary departure from American tradition but it is extremely racist towards Mexican students. Basically what the school district is saying here is that student of Mexican descent are so inherently intolerant and racist that they would attack any student wearing an American flag shirt. Why is this district stereotyping Hispanic students?
In other news, apparently eating tacos or drinking tequilla on Cinco De Mayo is also RAAAAACIST!
Northwestern University continued to stumble over diversity issues this week as Mexican students voiced disagreement with a campuswide letter that advised students not to celebrate Cinco de Mayo by engaging in racially-offensive activities, such as eating tacos and drinking tequila.
The letter was sent to students via e-mail, and published in The Daily Northwestern last week. Leaders of Alianza, a Latino student group, and the Associated Student Government called on students to remember that Cinco de Mayo commemorates Mexico’s victory over France in the Battle of Puebla. It is not a day to throw a sombrero-themed party, they said.
“Some of our peers choose to throw ‘Mexican-themed’ parties that are culturally insensitive, offensive, and detrimental to the Northwestern community,” said the letter, which noted that this was a problem year after year. “Drinking tequila shots, eating tacos, and wearing sombreros do not commemorate Mexican culture; on the contrary, that offends, marginalizes, and isolates many of our friends, classmates, and community members, and casts our entire community in poor light.”
Good Freaking Grief Everyone is a victim!
