“I’m rooting for everybody black,” she said from the red carpet. “I am!”
This is the natural result of identity obsession

A woman with both feet firmly planted in the 19th century took great issue with a Texas Hobby Lobby selling cotton as a decorative home accessory.
In a Facebook post, Daniell Rider projected her personal, racially tinged tastes on a hyper-sensitive nation.
“There is nothing decorative about raw cotton,” Rider declared. “A commodity which was gained at the expense of African-American slaves. A little sensitivity goes a long way. Please remove this decor.”
How dare Bill Belichick celebrate the death of terrorists? Of course, Tariq Nasheed can use this to claim RAAAAACISM! So he is OK with it, selling false victim status is just how he rolls. He race baits, and, $$$$ follows, just like his buddy DeRay, and his blue vests! Coded messages, dog whistles, institutional racism, White privilege, blah, blah, blah.
Heat Street has some very racist things Tariq has spewed in his work as an anti-racism strategist. I would add misogynist to these words of, well, something
In one great part of the episode Nasheed describes how the SARS and bird flu epidemics made Asian women less valuable.
“So Asian girls kind of dropped down a notch, and I’m saying this because I used to love me some Asian broads around 2001-2002. Those were my main team players, but I had to start cutting them off the team.”
“Asian girls are still salvageable, you can salvage them.”
“Asian females like I said were hot for a minute, but then all of a sudden the damn bird flu started coming into play and chicken fever, all types of shit, SARS, they started getting all types of shit coming from these Asian broads. So that kind of threw everybody off from Asian girls for a minute, all these little strange Asian diseases started popping up. Because right after that happened, everybody started focusing on the Latina girls.
“For awhile Asian girls were the shit, but a nigga didn’t want to get feathers on his dick from the bird flu or whatever was popping off.”
“I’m not saying that every Filipino girl is a drug user, but a lot of them are. A lot of girls from those poorer countries are major drug users. But damn near all of them, especially the attractive ones, are attention whores.”
“Now with Puerto Rican females, you gotta step to them with confidence, and you gotta get them young. Not underage, don’t get your ass on MSNBC, Dateline as a pedophile, but you gotta get them at 18, 19. You gotta get them out of their community.”
“You gotta get them young, fresh off the boat.”
“A lot of Puerto Rican bitches will hit the wall at 30. By the time they get to 30 years old, they look a hot mess. I don’t know what it is in the Puerto Rican water, or the Chupacabra monster got them, but they hit the wall.”
“A lot of girls here from Brazil, Columbia, they be on some gangsta shit. Bitches be drug mules or high class call girls. You kind of have to have your foot in the game to deal with women like that, cause if a Brazilian broad has gotten out of her country, that bitch got some hustling under her belt. And she did something to get out of her country. She done sold some dope, she done sold some pussy, she done sold something to get up out of that country.”
“Brazilian girls and a lot of women from South America have bad breath. I know that sounds kinda weird, but whenever I meet a girl from South America, all them bitches breath smells funny.”
Smell the tolerance and anti-racism folks. And oh yes, he is anti-cop
Classy! He just spews, and tries to talk over Carlson, which shows he is simply an empty suit who has found a way to make money. He is all about creating anger and division. What a leech!
In an opinion piece on The Conversation and re-published in the Billings Gazette, Professor Charlton Mcllwain writes about the inherent racism of the Internet, created by in part by search engines and links between sites.
Professor Mcllwain first argues that “the internet does appear in fact segregated along racial lines,” saying his research “demonstrates that websites focusing on racial issues are visited less often, and are less visible in search result rankings than sites with different, or broader, focuses.”
“This phenomenon is not based on anything that individual website producers do. Rather, it appears to be a product of how users themselves find and share information online, a process mediated mostly by search engines and, increasingly, social media platforms,” he writes.
His work searches for “online analogues” of systemic racism—that is, racism that applies to “cultures and societies at large”—in which “subtle biases permeate culture and society in ways that yield overwhelming advantages for whites, at the expense of nonwhites.”
“Specifically, I am trying to determine whether the online environment, one completely constructed by humans, systematically produces advantages and disadvantages along racial lines – whether intentionally or inadvertently,” he writes, conceding that this is “a difficult question to approach.”
What professor dipwad is missing is that people, well normal people really do not care about race. They also would not be interested in sites run by those obsessed with skin color
For those that have not heard, LeBron James, who is the best basketball player on earth and really rich, and really blessed, had some idiot paint that word we are only allowed to give the first letter of on his home.
The media, of course, is using this to further the “America is perpetually and hopelessly racist” narrative
NBA star LeBron has spoken up about a racist incident that took place at his Los Angeles home, telling reporters that it is “tough” to be black in the US.
James spoke about the incident, which is being investigated as a possible hate crime, in a press conference scheduled for the opening of the NBA Finals.
“No matter how much money you have, no matter how famous you are, no matter how many people admire you, being black in America is tough,” he said
“We got a long way to go for us as a society and for us as African Americans until we feel equal in America.”
No, LeBron, no, and no again. What happened to your home was done by an idiot. To parrot the “this shows we have a long way to go” line is BS frankly. Most, and I mean a heavy majority of Americans, of all races really do not care about skin color. Yes, there are outliers, there always will be. But they are few. Hell, I have had people write nasty things, some racial, on vehicles. My father has as well. Guess what, those were outliers as well
It is way past time incidents like this are overblown and used to paint America as inherently flawed. America is the most racially diverse and tolerant nation on earth. No, LeBron, being Black, or any race in America is not tough, it is a blessing. So, stop playing the victim card
How dare Shea Moisture put White women in their ad! Yes, really!
Black women’s hair. You don’t know the shtruggle.
Shea Moisture is a hair product that helps with that shtruggle. Put a white woman in the commercial and the shtrugglers will destroy you. BLACK ONLY!
WHITES NEED NOT APPLY Shea moisture cream
Here is the super offensive ad
So, apparently this company is trying to sale more of their product, and this ad targets people who maybe are not their traditional patrons. How, in any rational sense, is this offensive? Are we really this petty, childish, and emotionally overwrought in America? Are we this obsessed with freaking hair? Are the Black women bitching about this so insecure and pathetic that they are truly offended? I would guess that about 99% of Black women are too busy having lives to be “offended” over the fact that this product might be used by White women. But, of course, the company has apologized for, I guess daring to advertise to Whitey or something
After the backlash, SheaMoisture issued an apology, saying they “f-ed this one up”:
Wow, okay – so guys, listen, we really f-ed this one up. Please know that our intention was not – and would never be – to disrespect our community, and as such, we are pulling this piece immediately because it does not represent what we intended to communicate. You guys know that we have always stood for inclusion in beauty and have always fought for our community and given them credit for not just building our business but for shifting the beauty landscape.
The company admitted that while the purpose of the ad was to demonstrate different “hair journeys,” they will try harder to make sure the black community is “well-represented”:
While this campaign included several different videos showing different ethnicities and hair types to demonstrate the breadth and depth of each individual’s hair journey, we must absolutely ensure moving forward that our community is well-represented in each one so that the women who have led this movement never feel that their hair journey is minimized in any way. We are keenly aware of the journey that WOC face – and our work will continue to serve as the inspiration for work like the Perception Institute’s Good Hair Study/Implicit Association Test that suggests that a majority of people, regardless of race and gender, hold some bias towards women of color based on their textured or natural hair. So, you’re right. We are different – and we should know better.
Oh good grief! What a groveling “apology” Someone grab me a vomit bag. The ad that so offended some malcontents was the first in a series of ads that features a variety of women with a variety of hair needs that Shea felt its product can help. There is something striking here. The CEO of Shea was being interviewed about this and noted that other makers of hair care products are trying to broaden their demographic appeal by targeting a more diverse pool of women. These ads brought down no anger did they? No one went to YouTube to make outrageously outraged videos. No White women whined and pretended to be offended and aggrieved. Apparently diversity is a one way street where the race mongers are concerned. Honestly it is a freaking hair care product ad!
Oh, one more thing that must be made clear. If you are offended by this ad, then you are the problem, because you are being racist. It is you that needs to take a long look in your mirror! Frankly, anyone offended by this deserves but one response. A two-word response. Wanna take a guess what those words are? Yes, the first one does rhyme with luck
It has come to this, segregated playgrounds
Like most mothers with young children, Coverdale enjoys opportunities to socialise with other mothers of children the same age while on maternity leave, especially in her neighbourhood in inner-city Sydney.
So when a Russian-born friend mentioned a playgroup on Thursdays, at the Alexandria Park Community Centre, she was enthusiastic.
Two weeks ago, on a humid Thursday morning, she bundled her eight-month-old baby in the pram and walked with her four-year-old son the short distance to the community centre.
When she arrived, her red-haired son raced off to play while she looked around for her friend.
That was when a staff member approached and asked if it was her first day. Coverdale thought how nice that she was so attentive.
But then the woman said: “Can I ask what your cultural background is?”
Taken aback, Coverdale, who has blonde hair and freckles, said: “I’m Australian”.
Immediately, the woman said: “I’m sorry, you can’t come here. It’s for multicultural families and people who speak languages other than English at home.”
This is what is happening to Western culture. The obsessive emphasis on identity and multiculturalism has led us here. It has led us to a place where the way people “look” is all that matters. A place where people are using “anti-discrimination” to discriminate.
This story also has a positive ending though
After being alerted to the problem on Friday, Education Minister Rob Stokes and his department, to their credit, instructed Fletcher to allow all families to attend the playgroup.
“I was disappointed to hear that a mum and her young child felt they were not welcome… This is not acceptable. Everyone, regardless of their background, should feel included in these wonderful community activities.”
The Education Department also has “counselled the program facilitator [Fletcher] regarding the requirement of the program to be inclusive”, said a spokesman late Friday.
In this case the media reported on the bigotry, and a wrong was righted. But not the cause of the problem. The Left has taken a noble and good cause, ending racism, and slowly, but surely twisted it into a charge for encoding racism, as long as it is perpetrated against the right groups. They are creating a culture where discrimination is the worst sin on earth if perpetrated against certain groups, but completely justified and righteous if it targets other groups. Once more we see that Leftism destroys everything it touches.
I have opined before that Leftism destroys everything it touches. But, after reading this story at Moonbattery I would say that those who embrace Leftism might as well ingest rattlesnake venom
A whites-only group has been started at MIT. Is this pushback against the militant anti-Caucasian racism that dominates college campuses? Of course not, or the group would have been banned. The group is devoted to racial self-hatred:
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) now has a “White Person’s Accountability Group” to help white people understand their “roles both in perpetuating systemic racism and in dismantling it.”
An objective of the group is to develop a “sense of anger about racism.”
…begin holding monthly meetings to “hold one another accountable to advancing racial justice in [their] own personal, institutional, and societal spheres.”
To achieve absolute equality (i.e., “racial justice”), anyone who rises above the lowest common denominator must hold himself down with self-hatred.
MIT students and faculty who wish to start a “white caucus” are advised to “provide a summary report of each meeting [to] people of color,” remembering that “people of color should be the ones to determine what is appropriate,” but are also warned that “there is a fine line between seeking accountability and adding another burden on people of color.”
In short anyone who is not a member of a preferred race must not only hate themselves, and bear guilt for imagined crimes, but they must also force themselves to grovel like slaves before their “victims”. On the despicability scale, this ranks high. This is naked racism and anyone who embraces such moral backasswardness is doomed to a life of misery and self-loathing. And those that teach this garbage are no better than a KKK member, or any other bottom feeding bigot.
Again, one of life’s inescapable truths is that leftism destroys everything it touches, and anyone who embraces and accepts its morally depraved ideals.
Yes gun targets are now, well, you know
The No More Black Targets campaign argues that shooting ranges and instructors should not use “menacing” black targets, and is petitioning to end the practice, citing trigger bias.
“Young black men are 3X more likely to be shot by trained shooters than their white peers,” notes the site for the campaign. “A disturbing potential correlation: The most popular target for shooters to learn to use their firearm is a black silhouette. Unconscious bias can be deadly.”
Good Freaking Grief! But perhaps the most asinine claim is this
The group references a study by University of Illinois researchers that concluded shooters were more likely to fire at a black target.
One of the researhers in that study, Yara Mekawi, told National Public Radio in 2015 that people were “quicker to shoot black targets with a gun relative to white targets with a gun. And…people were more trigger-happy when shooting black targets compared to shooting white targets.”

The Caucus of Working Educators, a branch of a teachers union, wants educators to wear Black Lives Matter gear in the classroom and teach lessons based on the movement, reports ABC News.
The themes for the lessons vary day to day. Jan. 23’s lessons are supposed to cover ideas of “restorative justice, empathy and loving engagement,” while Jan. 24 will deal with diversity and globalism.
In other words Marxism, social justice, and propaganda about how racist America and its police forces are. Go read it all, and you will likely come to the conclusion that this is nothing more than indoctrination into radical left values. Please recall that BLM was forged based on a lies, the lies about Trayvon Martin being hunted down, the “hands up, don’t shoot” lie. The movement is infested with radicals, racists, and is backed by George Soros, a rabidly anti-American radical himself.
I have no problem teaching students about BLM, but I want the truth taught, not propaganda.
If you are skeptical, consider the 13 principles that BLM claims to be founded upon.
Do not expect to see anything remotely resembling a call to address the out of wedlock birthrate in the Black community. Or for a call for Blacks to leave gangs, and stop killing other Blacks Over 90% of Blacks killed are killed by Black people, usually young Black men with illegal firearms. Do not look for a call to reign in the disproportionate rate of violent crime committed by young Black men. Do not look for any call for anything that might actually save Black lives, or improve living conditions in the inner city. Those things just are not important to BLM.
Here is one you might find interesting Emphasis mine
We are committed to disrupting the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, and especially “our” children to the degree that mothers, parents and children are comfortable.
So, with a lack of Black fathers being a large issue in the inner cities, BLM wants to further “disrupt” the traditional family?
All the other principles are based in Marxism. Heather Mac Donald offers some important insight
For almost two years, a protest movement known as “Black Lives Matter” has convulsed the nation. Triggered by the police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, in August 2014, the Black Lives Matter movement holds that racist police officers are the greatest threat facing young black men today. This belief has triggered riots, “die-ins,” the murder and attempted murder of police officers, a campaign to eliminate traditional grand jury proceedings when police use lethal force, and a presidential task force on policing.
Even though the U.S. Justice Department has resoundingly disproven the lie that a pacific Michael Brown was shot in cold blood while trying to surrender, Brown is still venerated as a martyr. And now police officers are backing off of proactive policing in the face of the relentless venom directed at them on the street and in the media. As a result, violent crime is on the rise.
The need is urgent, therefore, to examine the Black Lives Matter movement’s central thesis—that police pose the greatest threat to young black men. I propose two counter hypotheses: first, that there is no government agency more dedicated to the idea that black lives matter than the police; and second, that we have been talking obsessively about alleged police racism over the last 20 years in order to avoid talking about a far larger problem—black-on-black crime.
This is an excellent source that exposes the Black Lives Matter scam. Go read it all, and pass it around. In closing let me add this from Mac Donald, it is powerful
Who are some of the victims of elevated urban crime? On March 11, 2015, as protesters were once again converging on the Ferguson police headquarters demanding the resignation of the entire department, a six-year-old boy named Marcus Johnson was killed a few miles away in a St. Louis park, the victim of a drive-by shooting. No one protested his killing. Al Sharpton did not demand a federal investigation. Few people outside of his immediate community know his name.
Ten children under the age of ten were killed in Baltimore last year. In Cleveland, three children five and younger were killed in September. A seven-year-old boy was killed in Chicago over the Fourth of July weekend by a bullet intended for his father. In November, a nine-year-old in Chicago was lured into an alley and killed by his father’s gang enemies; the father refused to cooperate with the police. In August, a nine-year-old girl was doing her homework on her mother’s bed in Ferguson when a bullet fired into the house killed her. In Cincinnati in July, a four-year-old girl was shot in the head and a six-year-old girl was left paralyzed and partially blind from two separate drive-by shootings. This mindless violence seems almost to be regarded as normal, given the lack of attention it receives from the same people who would be out in droves if any of these had been police shootings.
Yet, none of this matters to Black Lives Matter? I implore everyone to ask why, and then consider what IS behind BLM?
The newest “trigger” for the modern day Brown Shirts is, it seems, something called “Cultural Appropriation”. This appropriation, and the Leftist freak out that follows, occurs when someone dares cook a dish or style their hair in a way that is deemed to belong to a certain race or color. Some examples include anyone who is not Black cooking greens, or fried chicken, or other Southern dishes. This is idiotic of course, because Southern is not a color, and Southerners of all races have been eating such foods for generations. It is also asinine because no Southerner in their right mind gets offended if a Yankee decides to make cornbread, collards and fried pork chops. Why the Hell would we get offended, if anything such an act would be a compliment. Further, why should we be putting up barriers between ethnicities and cultures? Is this not the polar opposite of being color blind?
Today, however, being color-blind is no longer a value the Left espouses. In fact, the opposite is true. Now, being a person who judges people based on shared ideals and values rather than race are smeared as racists. It is the politics of division the Left champions now. It has even gotten so bad that, as actress, Ellen Pompeo found out that White people using “Black” emojis are attacked for RAAAAACISM!
Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo has been criticized by woke social justice warriors after using black emojis on Twitter, with some users accusing her of overstepping her bounds as “a privileged white woman”.
One user, who has since set her account private, wrote: “It’s not fair to see a privileged white woman use [people of color] emojis just because you can.”
“It comes off as really obnoxious,” she added.
Obnoxious you say? As obnoxious as attacking someone because they do not segregate their emojis? REALLY! But, this miscreant was not alone in her outrageously outrageous outrage! Pompeo, being a reasonable person offered up this tweet
Of course, she was answered with more “tolerance”
This sparked further tweets directed at the actress accusing her of racism. After she said that it’s “sad to see racism is still alive and well on all sides,” people attacked her suggesting reverse-racism is real. One person wrote: “reverse racism isn’t real. White people don’t experience racism”.
To which Pompeo replied saying “I’ve been called a white B**** and countless other things 50000 times today what would you call it?”
Despite this, the people continued ganging up on the actress, saying “you literally said reverse racism exist JUST APOLOGIZE AND LOG OFF stop embarrassing and contradicting yourself”.
See? Tolerance! This is what the Left’s incessant message of identity politics, and grievance mongering has wrought. People so consumed with bigotry and bitterness that they attack people based on nothing more being the wrong color. I feel badly for Pompeo, she seems like a nice person, but being nice, nor being a Liberal are of any use when you transgress against the new Brown Shirts! Not at all. You must walk the line, or else! Of course, there is a positive here. The more the unhinged Left acts out the more Americans will reject such despicable attitudes and bigotry which permeate the Left.
Convicted drug trafficker Frank “Scooterbug” Clark was shot and killed by Durham Police earlier this week after he reached for a gun in his waistband after being confronted by cops, and his family and allies are really mad that violent felons aren’t treated with more respect by officers who know they are violent, woman-abusing drug dealers.
Family and friends are voicing their frustrations and concerns one day after police shot and killed a Durham man.
Frank Nathaniel Clark, 34, died after being shot during a struggle with three officers. Durham Police Chief C.J. Davis said the officers – Charles Barkley, Monte Southerland and Christopher Goss – stopped to talk to Clark when he reached for a gun in his waistband and they heard a shot.
About a dozen demonstrators marched a little over a mile from Fayetteville Road, near the McDougald Terrace community where Clark was shot, to Durham Police Headquarters, voicing their concerns about what they describe as a broken relationship between Durham police officers and the community.
The demonstrators took their call for justice to the front door of police headquarters before returning to the street and forming a circle in the middle of Chapel Hill Street, shutting down the intersection between Duke Street and Gregson Street.
“Not only do I want change, the community wants change too,” said Clark’s brother, Michael Clark.
Michael Clark said he and his brother, who was known to the community as “Bug,” grew up in the McDougald Terrace neighborhood. He said he wants Durham police officers to be more respectful to residents and that many who joined the march feel intimidated by police.
“The physical contact with the community, how they go about it; there’s another way instead of just hopping out, saying ‘put your hands up’, searching and patting you down for guns,” Michael Clark said.
There is also another way for people with long records of beating women, carrying illegal weapons and, dealing drugs to conduct themselves isn’t there? How about not pulling your illegal firearm on police? How about respect for law enforcement from the “community”? After all, the police are trying to protect innocent people from thugs like Clark. Consider this quote from the news article
“This community deserves safety and community policing has not created more safety. It has led directly to the death of Frank Clark,” said demonstrator Serena Sebring.
Hmmm, it seems Clark was the type of person that makes these communities unsafe. And, to be blunt, Clark caused his own death by pulling his illegal weapon on police. So, my suggestion to these protesters would be to stop excusing bad behavior. Stop blaming police for doing their jobs. If the police can improve their tactics, then fine. But, the excusing of criminals and thugs must stop.
Today, the Left has so perverted the definition of racism, that the only way to not be racist, is to be overtly racist somehow.
White students at Pomona College have launched a new student group dedicated to “owning our racism” and “deconstructing our whiteness.”
The organization—which calls itself “We’ve Got Work To Do: White People for Deconstructing Whiteness”—held its inaugural gathering Tuesday evening on Pomona’s campus, though students from all five schools in the Claremont College consortium are welcome to join.
“This is a group for White people at the 5C’s to work on owning our racism, deconstructing our Whiteness, and to engage in movement & action toward dismantling White Supremacy,” the organization explains on its Facebook page.
“Recognizing that White identity is a self-fashioned, hierarchical fantasy, Whites should attempt to dismantle Whiteness as it currently exists,” the description adds, drawing from a selection in the book Critical Race Theory: The Cutting Edge. “Whites should renounce their privileged racial character, though not simply out of guilt or any sense of self-deprecation. Rather, they should dismantle the edifice of Whiteness because this mythological construct stands at the vortex of racial inequality in America.”
This is self-loathing delusion, nothing more. The end result of years of indoctrination is as disturbing as it can be. There can be nothing more racist than demented blatherings such as this. This is solely about stamping every person of a certain race as despicable, and inherently flawed. There was a time when being color blind was honored by liberals. Now, to be color blind will get you described as a racist monster somehow. As I have written before, the Left latches on to just causes, like ending racism, and slowly perverts that cause into a new way to poison minds, divide people, and, of course further Collectivist thinking. One time Liberals fought racism, now, they perpetuate it
Redefining pathetic. This Communist does nothing but divide, divide, and divide some more, he cries about racism while acting in a racist fashion himself. Many things elected Trump. Dislike of Hillary, a sickness of the elites, and yes, a push back against the race hustlers like Van Jones, who is too stupid to even grasp that it is he who is the bigot
My Great-Great-Grandfather Allan Dean McWhorter fought Yankees with the 4th South Carolina Cavalry during the War of Northern Aggression. He was a “guest” at Point Lookout Prison Camp in Maryland, where conditions were horrific, with over 3,500 prisoners dying in the over crowded Hell hole in less than two years. So, I suppose Grandaddy Mac, as my Grandfather called him was lucky to get out alive. Anyway, I thought of my ancestor, one of many who fought for the Confederacy when I read this today
A South Carolina college is hosting a Confederate history event—but has banned the Confederate flag from being displayed.
York Technical College entered into a contract leasing space on campus to the Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV) for a convention in March 2017, and almost immediately after the information became public knowledge the school fell under intense scrutiny.
According to The Herald, the area NAACP chapter and other local citizens expressed concern that the Confederate flag would be publicly displayed and create controversy, arguing that a public institution should not agree to host any group that promotes the banner.
Oh, but of course the Leftist race baiters at the NAACP would take any opportunity to agitate and divide people instead of trying to fix actual problems facing Black Americans. Face it the NAACP makes bank on RAAAAACISM, even if they have to fabricate it, and their cash cow must be protected.
Local NAACP leaders were also at the conference, and assured the crowd they would be seeking legal counsel.
Member Jacques Days said the NAACP would hold York Tech accountable to its promise of prohibiting Confederate flags, but he also told the crowd there is still a possibility York Tech would not have to actually honor the contract, though he did not specify how that might be accomplished.
Days emphasized that the NAACP’s goal is to completely stop the convention from happening, citing the Confederate flag’s status as a symbol of “divisive history” and “division, racism, and hatred.”
See? History-free history! Stalin would be very proud. Again the Left shows itself to be an ideology of intellectual cowardice and an ideology of lies, and liars. Face it, if the bottom feeders at the NAACP were so sure history was on their side, they would welcome this event. Instead they seek, again, to erase history rather than to discuss or debate it. And, if the NAACP cared, truly cared about black people, they would be fighting to correct the obscene out of wedlock birth rate, the high violent crime rate, Black on Black murder, gangs, and other pertinent issues. That they are fighting to censor or silence historical events tells you every last thing you need to know about the NAACP
No, I should not use her name because frankly, she is likely looking for attention with this stunt
MIAMI (AP) A woman performing the national anthem before an NBA preseason game in Miami on Friday night did so while kneeling at midcourt, and opening her jacket to show a shirt with the phrase ”Black Lives Matter.”
The singer was identified by the Heat as Denasia Lawrence. It was unclear if she remained in the arena after the performance, and messages left for her were not immediately returned.
I would like to hear her excuse for her actions. I would imagine she would echo the ignorance of this uninformed buffoon
Leah Tysse was called upon to deliver the national anthem during the Sacramento Kings game, and as she ended her rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” she kneeled to protest “injustice” in America.
“This act embodies the conflict many of us feel,” Tysse explained of her actions in a Facebook post following her performance. “I love and honor my country as deeply as anyone yet it is my responsibility as an American to speak up against injustice as it affects my fellow Americans. I have sung the anthem before but this time taking a knee felt like the most patriotic thing I could do.”
OK, let us not question her patriotism, or motives for second. What “injustices” are upsetting her? This is from her Facebook page
Why I took a knee while singing the Anthem at a Sacramento Kings NBA game: This act embodies the conflict many of us feel. I love and honor my country as deeply as anyone yet it is my responsibility as an American to speak up against injustice as it affects my fellow Americans. I have sung the anthem before but this time taking a knee felt like the most patriotic thing I could do. I cannot idly stand by as black people are unlawfully profiled, harassed and killed by our law enforcement over and over and without a drop of accountability. I believe that the majority of police are good and are against this too and as a nation we all need to speak up. We should all be outraged and demand justice and an end to the brutality. Let’s look around our communities for those facilitating healthy interactions between law enforcement and communities of color and support. The sad reality is, as a white American I am bestowed a certain privilege in this nation that is not enjoyed by all people. Black families are having much different conversations with their children about how to interact with the police than white families. Let’s be honest. Until we can recognize that white privilege exists we cannot have a dialogue about race. Whether or not you can see if from your vantage point, there is a deep system of institutionalized racism in America, from everyday discrimination to disproportionate incarceration of people of color to people losing their lives at the hands of the police simply for being black. This is not who we claim to be as a nation. It is wrong and I won’t stand for it
So, it would appear that she is, indeed, a highly indoctrinated American. A victim of our education system, and of the media narrative about America, race, police, and crime. Consider her belief that police are brutally targeting Blacks
I cannot idly stand by as black people are unlawfully profiled, harassed and killed by our law enforcement over and over and without a drop of accountability
This is a very common misconception that groups like Black Lives Matter have pushed repeatedly. That police are never held to account for “hunting down” Black Americans. This is patently untrue. Every police shooting is investigated, ballistic, forensic, and eye-witness testimony are weighed and yes, some officers are charged, some are not. Some who are charged are convicted, some are not. Police, like everyone deserve justice be allowed to work. The problem with “Social Justice” is that it has no interest in actual justice. Take the next statement from Tysse
Whether or not you can see if from your vantage point, there is a deep system of institutionalized racism in America, from everyday discrimination to disproportionate incarceration of people of color to people losing their lives at the hands of the police simply for being black
Again, she makes a patently false accusation that police are shooting Blacks for their skin color. She then goes into the narrative of “disproportioante incarceration”, which is also false. Social Justice types look at Blacks, and say they are 13% of the population, yet they are, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons, 37.8% of the prison poulation Whites make up 58.7%. To the Social Justice Warrior, or SJW, this is glaring evidence of racism. But what happens when you compare the number of Blacks who commit crimes, to the number incarcerated? According to the FBI numbers of those arrested for crimes, all crimes is 28.3%. Now look at the rates for violent crime only. The FBI defines Violent crimes as offenses of murder and non-negligent manslaughter, rape, robbery, and aggravated assault.
For 2014 the violent crime arrest rate for Whites was 59.4 %. Comapre that to the prison poulation for Whites 58.7%. Now compare the Black pison poulation, 37.8% to the violent crime arrests of Blacks which is 37.7%. Disproportionate? Hardly. The percentage of Blacks arrested for violent crimes is alomost identical to the percentage of Blacks incacerated. The numbers or arrests from 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013 are almost the same. the only thing that stands out as “disproportionate” is the violent crime rate in the Black community.
Perhaps Tysse, and her fellow SJW’s should do a bit of research BEFORE denouncing police, America, and our justice system? Tysse wrote this on Fcaebook, maybe she should ammend this
Let’s be honest. Until we can recognize that white privilege exists we cannot have a dialogue about race.
No, let us be truly honest Ms. Tysse, until people like yourself start addressing the real issues here, the disproportionate violent crime rate among young Black men, gangs, the victim mentality, and the abscence of fathers in so many young Black people’s lives, the plight of so many Blacks will not improve
Like trying to unite people, by dividing them
Emory University’s Campus Life Department will soon host what it hopes will become a regular social hour, but invitations will only be extended to students and staff “of color.”
DeLa Sweeney, Emory’s interim director for Multicultural Programs, sent an email to staff at the school’s Campus Life Department, inviting them to attend an upcoming social “for students, alumni, faculty, and Emory Campus Life staff of color” only.
Sweeney defended that nature of the event in an exchange with Campus Reform, arguing that the participants will benefit from the opportunity to explore their “shared interests” in the absence of white peers.
In short, Sweeney, who is a blatant racist, is saying that non-White people share certain interests, because they are non-White. Of course many of those interests are likely shared by people of all races. In fact, it would be far more productive if events for people with similar interests were arranged. But, of course, then the Liberal social engineers could not vent their twisted views, and further divide people based on skin color.
Funny how Leftists like these parasites are perfectly willing to embrace Capitalism when it benefits them.
Universities are in the business of making money off corrosive and divisive leftist ideology. Looks like the students are learning their lessons:
Students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison are asking people to buy sweatshirts promoting violence against police officers and classifying all white people as racists.
Hopefully no one misses the irony of racistly denouncing every member of a race for being racist:
Here are two of the shirts, and the wannabe thugs that are selling them
Pathetic? Check! Threatening and thuggish? Check! Two points really quick. The member of the Religion of Peace has likely never encountered any officer whit a God complex. She likes to pretend to be a victim, and, apparently to play a bad ass cop killer as well. Secondly, the guy thinks somehow that being racist is OK for him, because of his skin color. Dude, check your privilege!
Then why was Trenton Trevon Lovell not killed by police? The narrative on cops goes like this. America is racist, American police are racists, and they are hunting young Black men, and shooting them without provocation. Several high-profile cases have been used to push this highly emotional, and highly false narrative. Every case starts the same it seems. A young Black man is shot and killed by police. Immediately the Social Justice Warriors come out in full agitation mode. They loudly proclaim that the young Black man was a “good boy” was “unarmed” and was simply gunned down for being Black. They accuse the police of murder by racism, paint the person shot as an angel, and the media, of course, allows them ample air time to try to convict the officers involved in the court of public opinion.
Facts? Please! Evidence that racism had anything to do with the shooting? The Social Justice Warriors don’t need no stinkin’ evidence because RAAAAAACISM! They will trot out stats on “disproportionate” police stops, arrests, and shootings of young Black men. Then, slowly, in almost every high-profile case the facts start to seep out. Soon, we, at least those of us that wait until actual evidence starts to emerge, learn that the person shot was not a “good boy” at all. Usually their lengthy criminal record, and often violent past comes to light. Then we learn that they were, in fact not “unarmed”, or were attacking a police officer. Or that they were refusing to show their hands, instead reaching into their waistbands or pockets where a weapon can easily be concealed. Then, the narrative tends to fall apart completely, as we realize that the officer really had no choice. Of course, the Social Justice Warriors continue their propaganda, never acknowledging the facts. They still use Michael Brown as an example of police racism for example. Even though every shred of eyewitness accounts, forensic evidence, and even the Obama Justice Department found that the officer that shot Brown, acted completely properly and was completely justified, the narrative is still pushed.
Another part of the narrative that continues is that police never allow Black suspects to surrender, as they do with suspects of other races. If this is true then why is Trenton Trevon Lovell still alive? Lovell executed an officer in cold blood, yet he was taken alive.
A Los Angeles County sheriff’s sergeant was the victim of “a calculated execution” by a parolee with a long history of arrests who pumped bullets into his body as he lay wounded, Sheriff Jim McDonnell said Thursday.
Sgt. Steven Owen, 53, was shot Sunday as he responded to a report of a burglary in progress at an apartment building in Lancaster.
Owen went behind the building, where the gunman shot him with a stolen gun then stood over his body and fired four more times, McDonnell said at a news conference.
“He then unsuccessfully searched the body for the sergeant’s weapon, with the intent to use it to murder the first responding deputy,” the sheriff said.
The suspect did not stop there
Authorities said he pointed a gun at a deputy who responded and was shot in the shoulder before stealing Owens’ patrol car, backing up and ramming another patrol car with it.
He then ran into a house where two teenagers were cowering before SWAT team members rescued them and forced Lovell to run out the back, McDonnell said.
Lovell was treated for his wound and remained jailed without bail. It was not clear if he has an attorney.
Yet, he was taken alive. Why? I mean Black Lives Matter types will tell us that police ALWAYS murder Black suspects. So why did Lovell survive? I would surmise that police prefer NOT killing a suspect, and in this case they were simply able to achieve that preferred ending. Maybe a better question is this. Why was Lovell out walking around when he had shown himself a danger to the public.
Lovell has been arrested a dozen times, including one on suspicion of selling marijuana when he was a juvenile. He has also served two state prison sentences, McDonnell said.
Lovell was on parole following a 2009 conviction and six-year prison sentence for robbing a USC community safety officer at gunpoint, the Los Angeles Times reported (http://lat.ms/2cVCvaJ ). McDonnell said he had been classified as a “moderate risk.”
Ignore that loud boom, that is just my head exploding
A Michigan school district called the historic “Betsy Ross” flag a symbol of hate and profusely apologized after students displayed the flag at a recent high school football game.
“To wave a historical version of our flag, that to some symbolizes exclusion and hate, injects hostility and confusion to an event where no one intended to do so,” wrote Forest Hills Public Schools Superintendent Daniel Behm in a letter to parents.
The controversy surrounding the 13-star flag erupted on Sept. 9th during a football game between predominantly white Forest Hills Central High School and predominantly black Ottawa Hills High School, MLive reports.
Forest Hills students not only waved a “Betsy Ross” flag, but they also displayed a Donald Trump banner (behavior guaranteed to get you labeled deplorable).
At least one parent was “shocked” to hear students chanting, “USA” and wearing red, white and blue.
Oh, the horror.
“You can’t deny the overt, intentional racism and intimidation,” said Briana Urena-Ravelo, co-founder of the Grand Rapids Black Lives Matter group.
Ms. Urena-Ravelo, who represents a group that specializes in overt intentional racism and intimidation, told television station WOOD that the students intended to be racist.
“For these white kids from a white school to bring out a flag of the colonies with the ‘Make America Great Again’ Trump flag to a game with black students on the field, it’s all very obvious,” she told the television station.
There is but one fitting retort to Junior Race Baiter-in-Training Ms. Urena-Ravelo
