Liberal Democrats and the Minority Voter

Democrats are going after the black vote by deliberately spreading false information.  Apparently it has worked pretty well in the past, but this may be changing.

Homeschooling: Restoring Parents' Right to Raise Their Children as God Intended.  Years ago, I spoke to a class of black students at a Baltimore middle school.  I asked each student to state their name.  Stunningly, I had to ask several students to repeat their name numerous times before I understood what they were saying.  They mumbled.  I thought, why would their teacher allow such lazy speech?  It is the bigotry of low expectations.

Another American City Destroyed by the Democrats.  [As Peter Collier] points out, the vast majority of America's voiceless, powerless, and impoverished people are concentrated in cities that have been run exclusively by Democrats for decades — even generations — without interruption.  These are cities where stratospheric rates of crime, poverty, unemployment, out-of-wedlock births, homes without fathers and failed school systems have become a way of life — along with oppressive and confiscatory taxes whose only discernible achievement is to keep the leaky ship of city government afloat for as long as possible before it is inevitably capsized by economic and social calamity.  Minneapolis, Minnesota is perhaps the least likely case in point.  Camouflaged by the state as a whole, a synonym for plainspoken stability, it is just one of the many American cities that were once thriving centers of industry, prosperity and optimism — until Democrats took them over.

Democrats Said Melania's White Dress Was Racist, Then Wore White to Trump's Speech.  When Republicans wear white, it's because they're trying to subliminally convey how much they hate black people.  When Democrats wear white, it's because they love women, liberty, and progress.

In February, Democrats Wrap Up Black Amnesia Month.  Democrats stood shoulder to shoulder for decades with the late U.S. senator and former Klansman Robert Byrd (D., W.Va.).  As the Washington Post explained, Byrd recruited 150 Klansmen for the Crab Orchard, W.Va., KKK.  His local chapter unanimously elected him "Exalted Cyclops."  Byrd wrote the KKK's Imperial Wizard in 1946:  "The Klan is needed today as never before and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia."  Democrats ignored all of this and embraced Byrd as their Senate leader as recently as 1989.  Hillary Clinton called Byrd "my friend and mentor."  At Byrd's July 2010 funeral, President Obama eulogized this hatemonger:  "It seems to me that his life bent toward justice."  Compare Democrats' half century of solidarity with Byrd, an actual Ku Klux Klan leader, with their unbridled, race-fueled vitriol against Attorney General Jeff Sessions, a non-KKK alumnus man who helped steer Klansman Henry Francis Hays into Alabama's electric chair.

Why Social-Justice Warriors Think It's Okay to Be Racist Towards Asians.  The same self-proclaimed liberals who tweet BlackLivesMatter and ChangeTheName, who work for a social-media network that fills its YouTube page with explainers telling you all you need to know about racism, have revealed a shocking blind spot when it comes to racism against Asian-Americans.

Diversify this.  Along with his remarked-upon shortfalls in diplomacy, nuance, finesse, rationality and often good manners, our 45th president has also been docked for his diversity shortfall.  This means he is surrounded by too many persons of pallor and of masculinity, in other words, by white males. [...] Trump could have found some more people of qualification with additional melanin and without the Y chromosome had he looked harder, but the fact remains that Republicans face an additional problem concerning diversity that their critics don't mention:  No sooner do they elect or appoint a female, Hispanic, black and/or Asian to any post whatsoever than that person loses all authenticity as a member of whatever group he or she may belong to.  Thus they become, in the eyes of the press and the Democrats, an imposter, a sell-out, a traitor, a Quisling, a monster, a fraud.

Ted Cruz Is Right about the Democrats and Racism.  Psychiatrists call the phenomena Warren exhibited as transference, the ascribing to others the faults you yourself possess.  Warren attempted to call former Sen. Jeff Sessions a "racist" and, by implication, his party and President Trump as well, on the Senate floor, a severe breech of protocol.  As Sen. Cruz pointed out in his reaction, Sen. Warren and her party had better look in the mirror of history: [...]

Not So Fast, UN: The US Owes No 'Reparations' to Blacks.  Though our racial history is undeniable, also undeniable is that most racial woes here were caused by the party of history blackout — the Democrats.  Let's get that history straight — a history with few teaching it and fewer knowing it.  Somewhere it's been said that one is a member of the Democratic Party by either decision, or deceit, meaning ignorance of their modus operandi.  The Democratic Party is irrevocably and inextricably tied to the racial attitudes, policy, organizations, violence and lynching in this nation's past while those more sympathetic Republicans, and particularly white men, are often referred to by that resurrected, hit-term, racist, the ne plus ultra label of the shrill and vitriolic left.

Immigration Rulings Continue Democrats' Strategy to Collect Votes.  The Democratic Party has long established itself as an "identity group" party.  It has divided the nation up into a list of groups of persons based on ethnicity and race and targeted these groups in their campaigns.  Slogans such as "black lives matter" are intended to influence voters into believing that the Democratic Party alone sympathizes with and will act, using government control of agencies and benefits, to improve the lives of those who are members of these groups.  These actions by the Democrats have a clearly defined and troubling theme in common:  the manipulation of groups of human beings into regions under Democratic control so as to build up and exploit their numbers.  In return, these groups support the Democratic Party and maintain its political power.

Trump Overseeing the Destruction of the Democrat Coalition.  [Scroll down]  The "KKKrazy glue" that holds the Democrats together is starting to dry out.  Last week's Women's March on Washington was the biggest anti-Trump demonstration yet.  There was just one problem:  the conspicuous absence of minorities.  Various Black Lives Matter groups spoke out about the absence of colored attendees.  Even before the event, the predominately white presence behind the march was a big point of contention among organizers.  One BLM activist took to Instagram to lecture white women on their inherent privilege and demanded they start "listening more, talking less, spend time observing, taking in media and art created by people of color, researching, and unlearning the things you have been taught about this country."  So much for feminine togetherness!

The Democratic party has lost its mind — and its soul.  Democrats claim to stand for the poor, immigrants and nonwhites.  Yet given a chance to actually support someone who is dedicated to improving education for all America's children, especially those trapped in failing urban schools, the Dems said no, [emphatically] no.  Joined by two Republicans, they stood in the schoolhouse door to block vital change, casting their lot with teachers unions that fear reform the way a vampire fears garlic.  Throw away all the subtexts and subterfuge, a defense of the rotten status quo is the only explanation for the bid to block DeVos.  The teachers unions pulled the strings, and the political puppets danced to their masters' tune.

The Breathtaking Hypocrisy of Senate Democrats.  In 1937, leftist icon Franklin Roosevelt appointed to the Supreme Court of the United States Attorney General Hugo Black, a man who had actually been a member of the Ku Klux Klan and never denied that fact. [...] House Democrats chose for majority whip a man who openly and clearly advocated "white supremacy," John Sparkman.  Senate Democrats chose Sparkman to be chairman of three important Senate committees.  His overt racism and links to the Ku Klux Klan were publicly called out by Republicans, but Democrats simply ignored these.  How openly did Democrats accept this Senate Democrat who was overtly opposed to civil rights for blacks?  Senator John Sparkman was selected by Adlai Stevenson to be his running mate on the 1952 Democrat presidential ticket, and not one single Senate Democrat opposed this ticket.

Cory Booker And The Party Of Robert Byrd.  The Democratic bench is thin these days and perhaps Cory Booker thought the crisis a Democratic Party decimated by the policies of Barack Obama would be a terrible thing to waste.  In, as Democrats might say, an unprecedented move, Cory Booker stepped to the plate as the designated character assassin of fellow Sen. Jeff Sessions.  It was a forum of great attention that perhaps Booker thought might launch a 2020 presidential run like another freshman Senator, Barack Obama, whose 2004 Democratic Convention speech launched his presidential campaign.

On Fire:  The Racist Anti-Racists at MTV News.  On Tuesday [1/10/2017], just before the confirmation hearing for Attorney General nominee and Alabama GOP Sen. Jeff Sessions kicked off, an MTV News reporter demonstrated his high and mighty commitment to racial tolerance ... by mocking Sen. Sessions' half-Asian granddaughter.  Sessions' daughter, Ruth, is married to Asian-American John Walk.  They have four girls.  Upon spotting Sessions with one of his multiracial granddaughters sitting on his lap as he waited for the proceedings to begin, MTV News "culture writer" Ira Madison III tweeted a photo of them and snarked:  "Sessions, sir, kindly return this Asian baby to the Toys 'R' Us you stole her from."  So much for liberals celebrating diversity.  So much for Michelle Obama's rallying cry to the left that "our motto is, when they go low, we go high."

At Sessions' hearing, Dems live up to the party's tradition of racism.  Like tired old racists clinging to their discredited past and divisive politics, Democrats wheezed exhaustively on their racial dogwhistles Tuesday in their increasingly futile bid to derail Sen. Jeff Sessions' nomination to become the next attorney general.  The disgraceful charade proved nothing except that Democrats have learned absolutely zilch since suffering a devastating rejection by voters in November's election, in which they shamelessly and relentlessly tried segregating the country along the lines of race, religion and sex.

Hope and humility.  [Scroll down]  Humility is the polar opposite of what Michelle Obama displayed to Oprah and what the president has mirrored during his eight years in office.  Throughout his presidency, you might have thought the pronoun "I" was his first initial for all the times he referred to himself.  The Obamas could have offered real hope, especially in the hearts of African-American children, by leading the poor among them out of failing inner-city schools and giving their parents a choice of where to send them for a better education, which would have led to a better life.  They rightly sent their daughters to elite private schools, rather than bad D.C. Public Schools, but denied that choice to those less affluent, thus perpetuating a spirit of hopelessness in those voters who had hoped for something beyond a "let's move" exercise program and a vegetable garden on the White House lawn.

Illinois has the Highest Black Unemployment Rate in the Country.  Illinois has maintained the horrible distinction of having the nation's highest black unemployment rate for the 15th month in a row, according to a new analysis from the Economic Policy Institute, or EPI.  Illinois' black unemployment rate is 14.2 percent, compared to the next highest state, Pennsylvania, at 11.8 percent.  Illinois' slow economic growth and weak industrial job creation, along with heavy regulations on occupational licensing and poor school options for many minority children have had a pronounced effect on black job opportunities.  Ironically, for almost the same duration of time that Illinois has had the highest black unemployment rate, Illinois' Democratic legislative leaders have insisted economic reforms are unnecessary for Illinois' economy, putting them at odds with Gov. Bruce Rauner.

How the Left Strangled Itself With Identity Politics.  Listen up, dimwits:  When you encourage racial pride in all groups except whites, you aren't exactly making a case against "racism."

Senate Dems shamed for nearly all-white top staffers.  Senate Democrats are facing growing pressure to break the white male stranglehold on senior staff positions in their ranks — a push that's uniting consultants and lobbyists inside the Beltway with Black Lives Matter and other minority leaders who are accusing the party of "soft bigotry."  The attacks are prompting uncomfortable discussions among Democrats even as they welcome their historic Senate freshman class, which includes the chamber's first Latina and Indian-American members.  Frustrations over the lack of diversity among the ranks of top Senate Democratic aides began seeping into public view after Hillary Clinton's stunning loss deprived the party's donors and lobbyists of a critical opening to build on the Obama administration's minority-hiring efforts.

Proposed Class Action Lawsuit Alleges Discrimination Against Black Employees at CNN, TBS.  A new court filing alleges that Turner employees faced racial discrimination that held them back in their careers and led to at least one former assistant being fired.  Roughly two dozen current and former employees of CNN and TBS (both owned by Turner) claim that there is a systematic problem with "discriminatory practices being implemented throughout all of Turner's Networks [sic]," according to a complaint filed Tuesday evening [12/6/2016].  The complaint cites statistics showing that black employees at Turner are promoted at a much lower rate than whites.

Black Employees Matter.  Politically-correct broadcaster CNN and its parent company face a big racial discrimination lawsuit in the US.  The class action lawsuit was filed this week by current and former black employees.

Black CNN employees in Atlanta sue the company for racial discrimination claiming they've had lower salaries and fewer promotions for 20 years.  Black employees of CNN are suing the company and its affiliates for racial discrimination.  The class action was filed in Atlanta, Georgia, on Wednesday on behalf of two workers, Celeslie Henley and Ernest Colbert Jr, but alleges widespread discrimination throughout the organizations.  'Dramatic' differences in pay, harsher evaluations for black males and fewer available promotions are among evidence of the prejudice, the lawsuit alleges.

CNN Gleefully Mocks Dr. Ben Carson — Exhibit Stunning Level of Ridicule Against Black Cabinet Nominee.  During a presented Don Lemon discussion panel Monday night [12/5/2016], the severity of ridicule against Dr. Ben Carson was jaw-dropping and unprofessional in the extreme.  Removing all pretense of substantive discussion, Don Lemon, Marc Lamont Hill and Peter Beinart began openly mocking the nomination of Dr. Carson for Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  The scope and severity of the exhibited ridicule was so over the top, fellow CNN panelist Brian Stelter was both visibly trying to hide his glee and simultaneously uncomfortable joining in amid the laughter and mockery.

Hello Democrats, I'm Here to Help.  Dear Democratic friends: your tribalist identity politics stinks.  Politics is division, and a very dangerous thing that we all need to keep in its box.  So when you terrify blacks and Hispanics and single women and LGBTs into tribalism with your identity politics you are setting up a monster; you are teaching the white deplorable majority to adopt identity politics too.  Instead, you should be teaching the victims to grow out of their identity ghettos and just become hyphenless responsible American citizens.

30 Blocks of "Black" Friday.  The black voters on the 30 Blocks of Squalor, ignored and taken for granted by Democrat politicians since the 1950s, cast 93% of their votes for Crooked Hillary.  It is baffling how these people would continue to vote for their own servitude, trapped in squalor, dependent upon the state for survival, and wallowing in ignorance produced by government indoctrination public schools.

Keith Ellison Once Proposed Making A Separate Country For Blacks.  Some newly discovered columns shed light on the shocking views expressed by one of the Democrat's favorite politicians.  Rep. Keith Ellison of Minnesota, now in the running to be DNC Chair, has attracted the support of Sens.  Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Harry Reid.  Many think that Ellison, an African-American Muslim, would make a powerful statement leading the DNC.  Ellison's past has gained attention from the media, with Ellison being accused of anti-Semitism and ties to the Nation of Islam.

In Milwaukee, hard-pressed black voters dumped Clinton.  Wisconsin's largest city is also America's most racially segregated one, according to a study based on the 2010 census.  And Wisconsin served up one of the biggest surprises of an election day that shocked America and the world:  no one thought the midwestern state would fall to the Republican billionaire.  Clinton was so sure of victory she did not even bother to campaign here after the Democratic primaries, instead sending her daughter Chelsea or her husband, former president Bill Clinton.

The MSM Is Right:  There Is a Racist Party in America.  Like their predecessors who fought a war to keep slavery legal, who founded the KKK, who passed the Jim Crow laws, who fought for school segregation, and who opposed the Civil Rights Act of 1964, modern Democrat politicians are constantly working to ensure that blacks be poor, ignorant, and totally dependent on the government.  Slave-owning Democrats believed that blacks were not really smart enough to run their own lives.  Modern Democrat talking heads constantly declare that in a country where Japanese Americans could go from Democrat-mandated prison camps to having one of the highest per household incomes in America, without Democrat help, blacks somehow can't manage to do anything.  It's the same paternalistic attitude that earlier Democrats used to justify slavery.  Of course, the new slavery is different from the old:  instead of picking cotton for hours in the blazing sun, modern blacks only have to vote Democrat, settle for unsafe neighborhoods, and be willing to live with the fact that their children will never get a decent education.

Why I find the black community's response to Trump's election a little embarrassing.  Just fifty years ago, our people were bravely marching for our freedom while facing the threat of bombings, lynchings, and ruthless beatings.  Are we — predominantly middle-class blacks — now going to cower in fear of a few racial slurs?  And for those who think the latter a precursor to the former:  the people making insensitive remarks in your workplace are not the same people who would burn a cross on your lawn.

The left is 'projecting' its own evil onto conservatives.  Everything the left witnesses is shot through the prism of race.  Race is their oxygen, and they can't take a breath without it.  Of late, Lebron James, and the liberal press, thinks a reference to the people with whom he travels as his "posse" is racist.  (The pendulum is hitting the wall.)  Gene Autry and Roy Rogers had posses — was that racist?  The absurdity and prevalence of these instances requires no further comment.  Who invites race into each discussion or dissection of the events of the day?  The "projecting" left.

Why Trump Won.  [Scroll down]  Finally, the more Clinton Inc. talked about the Latino vote, the black vote, the gay vote, the woman vote, the more Americans tired of the same old identity politics pandering.  What if minority bloc voters who had turned out for Obama might not be as sympathetic to a middle-aged, multimillionaire white woman?  And what if the working white classes might flock to the politically incorrect populist Trump in a way that they would not to a leftist elitist like Hillary Clinton?  In other words, the more Clinton played the identity politics card, the more she earned fewer returns for herself and more voters for Trump.

The Media's Mass Delusion About Donald Trump.  [Scroll down]  This pitch for journalists to throw objectivity to the wind was eagerly seconded by Hillary Clinton, who spoke to the National Association of Black Journalists and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists at their joint gathering in Washington, saying:  "Now I think journalists have a special responsibility to our democracy in a time like this."  That "special responsibility", of course, meaning these journalists should use their reporting to attack her opponent.  (And note well the irony:  Trump was accused by Rutenberg, the Times and the Post among many, many other others of being a racist.  The fact that Clinton addressed not one but two groups of journalists who quite openly divided themselves into racial groupings of "black journalists" and "Hispanic journalists" caused no one to blink, much less think twice.)

Is Affirmative Action the New Noblesse Oblige?  The idea of a privileged class bestowing gifts and benefits to lower classes — their economic and social inferiors, by definition — rubs against our egalitarian principles.  It's an implicitly condescending attitude, but that's not the worst part.  Noblesse oblige was despised in Revolutionary France because it inhibited social progress.  As the peasantry pushed for meaningful reforms that might transform the state of their condition, French patricians patted themselves on the back for bestowing kindness on the poor peasants, remaining oblivious to their actual grievances.  There seems to be a bit of a parallel here to affirmative action policies in the United States.

Black Church Leaders:  Democratic Party 'Asks for Everything, Gives Nothing'.  Leaders of the black church in America are reminding black voters that the Democratic Party has "sold out the black community and our Christian heritage," and they are urging blacks across the country to abandon the Democratic Party this election day. [...] "As someone who wants to see our community grow stronger and more prosperous, and who wants to see family and faith respected and preserved, I find that the Democratic Party no longer has room for me," says Rev. Owens.  "I realized that my relationship with the Democrats was completely one-sided.  They asked for everything — support, votes, loyalty.  And gave nothing in return."

Black Leaders to Their Voters: 'We Won't Allow Ourselves to Be Used' by Democratic Party.  Leaders of the black church in America are urging African American voters to abandon the Democratic Party once and for all as Election Day approaches.  In new videos released today, Rev. William Owens and his wife Dr. Deborah Owens of the Coalition of African American Pastors say the relationship between the black community and Democrats in America is "one-sided."

How white liberals really view black voters.  Ami Horowitz produced this wonderful clip for Fox News titled, "How white liberals really view black voters."  The concept is simple.  He heads to the progressive bastion of Berkeley, California and does a series of man-on-the-street interviews, asking white people about voter ID laws.  A number of people volunteer that voter ID laws are a bad idea and also racist.

Low turnout in early voting reveals Hillary Clinton's limited appeal among blacks.  Democrats' fears are coming true about Hillary Clinton's limited appeal among blacks, as numbers from early-voting states show the bloc isn't as fired up for the Democratic nominee as it was for President Obama.  In key battleground states such as Florida, North Carolina and Ohio, early voting patterns show that blacks aren't casting ballots in the same numbers they did four years ago, when they helped propel Mr. Obama to re-election.

Hillary eats soul food, campaigns in churches to boost lagging black turnout.  Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's tours of soul food restaurants and black churches to court black voters in recent weeks doesn't seem to be paying off.  The turnout of black voters is down in many areas compared to 2012, including key battleground states, providing the latest evidence that the former first lady's campaign may be circling the drain. [...] The black voter turnout in the key state of North Carolina is down 16 percent in early voting.  It's a similar situation in Florida, where black voters heading to the polls in person has decreased from 25 percent in 2012 to a current rate of 15 percent, despite expanded early voting opportunities.

Project Veritas Video — Top Democrat Donors Compare Black Republicans To Nazi Sympathizers.  In this video released by Project Veritas Action, a top Democratic donor is caught on camera disparaging members of the African American community at a fundraiser for North Carolina U.S. Senate candidate Deborah Ross.  In the video, prominent Ross donor Benjamin Barber expresses his opinion about blacks who vote Republican by comparing them to Nazis.

Clinton ally compares black Republicans to Jews who aided Nazis in Project Veritas video.  A longtime Clinton ally and donor has a theory about black Republicans:  They're like the Jewish guards in concentration camps who tried to save their own skins by helping the Nazis kill Jews.  In a hidden-camera video released Wednesday by Project Veritas Action, author and academic Benjamin R. Barber compared black Republicans to the "Sonderkommandos" during a Sept. 19 fundraiser for North Carolina Senate candidate Deborah Ross.  He described the Sonderkommandos as "Jewish guards who in effect helped murder Jews in the camps so they could live a little longer."

Dem Strategist:  Clinton Should Be In "Panic Mode" Over Enthusiasm Gap With Black Voters, "Nothing She Can Do," "It's Over".  Leslie Wimes, the president of the Democratic African-American women's caucus, joins MSNBC's Hallie Jackson to discuss the Clinton campaign being in "panic mode" about low voter enthusiasm in the black community.  "We love President Obama," she said.  "That doesn't transfer to Hillary Clinton by osmosis."  "It's over now as far as the African-American community is concerned.  She had time back then to get into the community and get people out to vote.  Now, you know, the numbers are the numbers.  There's nothing she can do now."

Black faith leaders reproach Hillary Clinton on religious freedom as enthusiasm chills.  On the 499th anniversary of Martin Luther's 95 Theses, a group of black minsters is nailing a missive to the door of the Democratic Party demanding a political reformation on the issues black people care about.  Delivered to Hillary Clinton's campaign headquarters on Monday [10/31/2016], the blistering letter is signed by more than 25 interdenominational black bishops and pastors, and finds fault with the Democratic presidential nominee's lackluster commitment to religious liberty, wholesale adoption of the LGBT movement's agenda and uncompromising support for abortion rights.

Black Leaders Warn Of Clinton Threat To Religious Liberty In Blistering Letter.  Black leaders slammed Hillary Clinton's position toward the poor in a letter delivered to her campaign Monday, saying her economic ideas won't help black communities in crisis and that her social views pose a threat to their religious liberty.  "Today in the United States more than ten million people of African descent face a crisis of catastrophic proportions," the letter begins.  "Life in our major post-industrial centers can be poor, nasty, brutish and short."

Blacks aren't supposed to catch on.  For those who don't remember, Eric Garner was the New York City resident who died following an altercation with police over his selling loose cigarettes.  After police wrestled him to the ground, Garner was whisked away and later died of a heart attack.  Ms. Garner is furious over the emails that show the Clinton people discussing how best to use Garner's death for the campaign.

Blacks aren't supposed to catch on.  [Scroll down]  But the truth is, Democrats have been using blacks to push their agenda for decades.  Their one hope has been that blacks don't catch on to that fact.  Hillary's campaign has been using blacks as pawns since the very beginning.  She needs their votes so desperately that nothing is off the table.  Hillary glommed on to the "Mothers of the Movement" group not because she cares about blacks, but because she cares about black votes.

Wikileaks: Erica Garner Rips Clinton Campaign for Calculating How to 'Use' Father's Death.  Erica Garner took to social media to express her outrage at private conversations from Hillary Clinton's campaign — which revealed political calculations on how they would use the death of her father in messaging.

Clinton Foundation Left Harlem For Wall Street Space With Goldman Sachs.  Clinton Foundation officials decided in 2011 to move their offices from Harlem to the Wall Street financial district in lower Manhattan and share the office with financial giant Goldman Sachs, according to a WikiLeaks email made public Friday [10/14/2016].  It moved into one of the most prestigious addresses in the financial district.  The building's owner boasts that 77 Water Street "sits at the epicenter of New York's financial district," and "is considered one of Wall Street's most recognizable buildings."  It was a far cry from 2001 when former President Bill Clinton proudly spoke in front of 2,000 people extolling his commitment to the poor people of Harlem.

Former Clinton Admin Chef:  Hillary Called Black Servant the 'N-Word', Clintons Made Racist Comments on a Routine Basis.  Hillary Clinton angrily referred to a black servant as the n-word, according to a bombshell claim by Tracey Martin, a former traveling chef who worked under the first Clinton administration.

Dunbar High School After 100 Years.  In 1899, when it was called "the M Street School," a test was given in Washington's four academic public high schools, three white and one black.  The black high school scored higher than two of the three white high schools.  Today, it would be considered Utopian even to set that as a goal, much less expect to see it happen.  The M Street School had neither of two so-called "prerequisites" for quality education.  There was no "diversity."  It was an all-black school from its beginning, and on through its life as a high quality institution under the name Dunbar High School.  But its days as a high quality institution ended abruptly in the middle of the 1950s.  After that, it became just another failing ghetto school.

Globalism, Soros, and Charlotte:  Now I Get It.  It's obvious.  They divide and conquer.  They set the people in each nation state against each other.  They divide them up by class, by race, by gender, by tribe:  Black Lives Matter; La Raza; Human Rights Campaign, CAIR.  With one ring to rule them all.  So that is why George Sauron and all the top-tier foundations are funding groups like Black Lives Matter.  That is why the globalists are all in favor of unlimited immigration.  The more that the people in America think of themselves as black or white or Hispanic or gay or Muslim rather than American, the easier it is for the global elite to "pierce the shell of state sovereignty" while we are all busy fighting each other.

The Left Insists On Everything Being A Consideration Of Race.  The lack of common sense among liberals is astounding.  On Fox's afternoon program "The Five" one hears the program's liberal member, Juan Williams, boringly often complaining that young black men are killed by police at a greater rate than their racial representation in the nation would predict, ignoring the fact that young black men commit crimes out of all proportion to the number of blacks in the larger population.  Eric Bolling, one of the conservative members of the program, has repeatedly reminded Williams that even though blacks make up a small percentage of the American population, they are sought out by the police in proportion to their commission of crimes, not in proportion to their racial percentage of the population, and the number of crimes they commit is far greater than their shear percentage of the overall population.

Charlotte riots, Tulsa doesn't.  For inexplicable reasons, leftists believe that the violence wrought by angry minorities will benefit them, so they encourage it.  They subsidize it.  Obama has given his not-so-tacit permission to riot every time one of these tragic events occurs, from the Henry Louis Gates minor incident to the killings of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, and the Dallas officers.  And now BLM is rolling in money, $100M from "social justice" organizations.  Soros gave them $33M.  What we see in Charlotte is what they pay for.  They are not wasting their money in Tulsa because Oklahoma is in the bag for Trump.

Farrakhan to Obama:  Let Trump Do Want He Wants, You Failed Inner City Blacks.  Sunday at the Men's Day program hosted at Union Temple Baptist Church in Washington, DC, Nation of Islam leader Minister Louis Farrakhan said to President Barack Obama, "Your people are suffering and dying in the streets," of Chicago, so "you failed to do what should have been done."  Farrakhan continued by saying it is time to let Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump do "what he wants to because he is not destroying your legacy."

DOJ Sends Same Unit to Charlotte That Helped Ferguson, Baltimore Rioters Organize.  In moments of social unrest featuring violence and crime, one would expect the only proper role of the taxpayer-funded federal government is to quash the disturbance.  However, a unit of progressive attorneys within the Department of Justice has been at the center of every significant riot during the Obama administration, and this unit — the Community Relations Service, or CRS — was not at those scenes to protect the safety of all citizens.  In fact, the CRS was caught encouraging the chaos.  Not only did CRS side only with the protesters and not with law enforcement, they actively facilitated the protests, even as they were turning violent.  Additionally, this same unit has a serious fraud and corruption problem.

Prepare For a Massive Racial Onslaught From The Professional Left.  Hillary Clinton is in a complete state of electoral collapse.  Her polling is far worse than what the media is capable of propping up.  Once the professional left cross a particular desperation threshold, what follows becomes predictable; this will be similar to Brexit's "Operation Fear" only with a traditional American-left-wing twist, the use of race to drive the needed division.  Before laying out substance for this tripwire prediction, we cannot emphasize enough how important it is to grasp the scope of what they are going to attempt to pull off.

Democrats Are Losing Control of Black Americans.  Regardless of the outcome of the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump's rise will force the Democratic Party to eventually have to address how its elected officials have neglected black Americans, its most loyal constituency.  The Democratic Party's worse nightmare happened when Donald Trump reached out to black Americans at a campaign rally in Wisconsin.  Trump's outreach was prefaced by challenging blacks to do an honest assessment of their return on investment after 50 years of voting Democrat.  The most damning words that Trump spoke were "what [...] do you have to lose" by voting Trump?  The last thing Democrats want blacks to do is to ponder that very question, knowing that the answer is nothing.

Liberals Claim To Know What Hispanics Want Better Than Hispanics Do.  Recent articles in The Thinker and The Hill express the position that Hispanics have broader and more areas of concern in life than the single subject of immigration when they consider the presidential candidacy of Donald Trump.  They care even more for the economy, health care, jobs and the deficit because these subject impact their lives and the lives of their families more than the appeal and faux persuasiveness of immigration.  And very often Hispanics who are American citizens don't want immigration reform, they want our immigration laws enforced and illegals kept out because criminals crossing our border are as much a threat to them and their welfare as it is to any other American citizen.

Joy Reid:  Not True That Republicans Passed Civil Rights for African-Americans That Democrats Opposed.  Saturday on MSNBC's "AM Joy," host Joy Reid disagreed with chairman of the Black Republican Caucus of Florida Sean P. Jackson when he said that if it was not for Republicans, African-Americans would still be enslaved.

Racial Issues.  [Scroll down]  The relations between the police and the black community are another issue that has gotten a lot of attention, and produced counterproductive results.  After all the rhetoric and all the efforts towards more tightly restraining the police, the net result has been that murder rates have soared in cities where that policy has been followed — and most of the people killed have been black.  None of the most popular political panaceas for helping black communities has a track record of making things better, and some have made things much worse.

Hillary's 'Deplorable' Ain't the Half of It.  Let's have a reality check about the -isms and the -phobias.  Racism is a problem?  You mean in the country that went to war to free the slaves, that passed the civil rights acts?  That elected a black president?  Sexism?  You mean the country that gave women the vote, that has encouraged women, indeed, has mandated that women get preference at the university and the workplace?  Homophobia?  You mean the country that doesn't riot in indignation when elite gays get to harass the little people for not wanting to bake a gay wedding cake?  Islamophobia?  You mean the country in which a supermarket checker gets to wear the hijab, a defiant statement of separation and act of segregation in my book, and gets to live to tell the tale?  You know what I think?  I think that the ordinary white middle class has shown the most amazing patience and sturdiness as they have marked time for the last 50 years while liberals deployed government force to help blacks, women, gays, Hispanics, Muslims at their expense.

Why Is Hillary Clinton Still Honoring A Segregationist And Anti-Semite?  Has anyone asked Hillary Clinton if the segregationist and anti-Semite J. William Fulbright was "deplorable?"  Seems like a reasonable question, since we're playing this game.  After all, her name is on the prestigious J. William Fulbright-Hillary Rodham Clinton Public Policy Fellowship.  Fulbright wasn't just a nut with despicable ideas about minorities.  He was gifted, influential politician who for decades worked to keep the races segregated through state force.  He signed the Southern Manifesto (he helped edit it, actually), opposed Brown v. Board, filibustered the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and voted against the 1965 Voting Rights Act.  He even voted against Hawaiian statehood to keep its large non-white population out of the union.

Why African Americans should desert Clinton and the Democrats.  The Democrats, including most notably Hillary Clinton, want to distract us from the reality that their "Big Government" programs and policies have failed to deliver widespread prosperity, and in particular have harmed black Americans, who keep falling further behind in academics and earnings.  The distraction comes in the form of a virulent "us-versus-them" mentality directed against Republicans and conservatives — as though they are the cause of the blacks' fading prospects — when the true culprit is the liberal-progressive element that dominates the Democratic Party.  This strategy may get votes for Hillary Clinton, but it is profoundly immoral, because it victimizes all of us, especially blacks.

Young Blacks Voice Skepticism on Hillary Clinton, Worrying Democrats.  "What am I supposed to do if I don't like him and I don't trust her?" a millennial black woman in Ohio asked.  "Choose between being stabbed and being shot?  No way!"  "She was part of the whole problem that started sending blacks to jail," a young black man, also from Ohio, observed about Mrs. Clinton.  "He's a racist, and she is a liar, so really what's the difference in choosing both or choosing neither?" another young black woman from Ohio said.

Hillary Cares About You?  Ask the Haitians She Ripped Off.  The group of Haitians demonstrating on the sidewalk at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia were furious with Bill and Hillary Clinton.  A passionate Haitian-American named Joseph Mathieu frankly accused the couple of "destroying Haiti for the decades.  They pretend to be our friends when in reality they are our number one enemies... the Clintons were running Haiti, stealing our money, our resources and we are out here, outraged for the crimes of the Clintons!"  Then Mathieu labeled the international power couple racists:  "The Clintons don't like black people," he thundered.  "All they do is more welfare, more jails, more food stamps — we don't need that, we need more opportunity, more education!"

5 Eye-Opening Revelations In The Dems' Secret 'Black Lives Matter' Memo.  An internal memo drafted by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee last November saw the light of day this week when The Smoking Gun posted the two-page document on its website.  The memo — written by the DCCC's then-diversity director Troy Perry — explains how congressmen and their staff should "respond to the tactics of the Black Lives Matter movement."  But it also reveals some things that Perry probably never intended.

Don't anger Black Lives Matters activists by mentioning 'black-on-black crime': What Democratic staff were told.  In the midst a spate of Black Lives Matter protests that put presidential candidates on the spot during speeches last year, a staffer for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee coached Democratic staffers on how to avoid antagonizing the group.  The memo, which was published on the web site of hacker Guccifer 2.0, provides step-by-step guidance on how candidates can avoid ticking off protesters.  "Do not say 'all lives matter' and nor [sic] mention 'black on black crime,'" it advises.  "If approached by BLM activists, campaign staff should offer to meet with local activists.  Invited BLM attendees should be limited," according to the memo.

Obama's Indian Policy Threatens All Americans, Both Tribal and Non-tribal Citizens.  Tragically, among the most seriously harmed victims in this federal government/tribal government collusion are the vast majority of tribal families that, for the most part, are still living in poverty and squalor.  Meanwhile, tribal leaders, the Indian lobbyist industry, and their paid politicians pocket not only huge casino profits, but also the unaudited rivers of cash provided by the U.S. taxpayers via the ever-expanding proliferation of federal programs.  The politicians, tribal leaders, and their propagandists adroitly exploit the sympathies of decent Americans and manipulate their feelings of guilt over past wrongs (both real and fictional) against the Indian tribes.  But their real goal is building their own wealth and power, not alleviating the plight of the tribal members.

The Real Racist in the 2016 Presidential Race.  Aside from attempting to block the Civil Rights Act, the Democrats have a rich racist history, conveniently overlooked by the media and the Democrats themselves.  The KKK originated with the Democrats.  Founded in 1866, it was "a vehicle for white southern resistance to the Republican Party's Reconstruction-era policies aimed at establishing political and economic equality for blacks."  Not a Republican creation; instead, "the organization saw its primary goal — the reestablishment of white supremacy — fulfilled through Democratic victories in state legislatures across the South in the 1870s."  Ignored by Mrs. Clinton and her media fanboys who continue trying to tie the KKK to the GOP.

Claims of Racism Are The Last Refuge Of A Shrill Harridan.  Hillary's racism lie, in which she linked Republicans to the kreepy klown kar her party created and in which her senatorial mentor Robert Byrd served as a Grand Imperial Cyborg Wizard Dragon or something, was not just your typical leftist slander against normal Americans.  It was an attempt to marginalize fully 40% of the electorate desperate enough to avoid her no-doubt catastrophic reign by voting for Donald Trump.  She and the left want to write this entire chunk of the electorate out of any voice in their own governance by authorizing her progressive supporters to disregard any duty to consider, represent or respect those alleged troglodytes.

Sorry, Hillary:  Trump's policies are clearly better for blacks.  On everything from education to jobs to crime, Trump's policies offer a lifeline to people who have been losing ground for decades.  Hillary's policies will just exacerbate them.  And no amount of speeches will change that.  On education, Trump strongly supports school choice.  This would give inner-city blacks a way out of horribly performing public schools.  Clinton attacks charters and clearly opposes other forms of school choice, opting to protect teachers unions at the expense of students.  And who's harmed the most by illegal immigration?  Who's most likely to suffer unemployment or wage reductions due to the added competition?  Young, unskilled blacks and Hispanics.  The biggest beneficiaries?  Wealthy people who get to pay less for lawn care and housecleaning.  But crime is the immediate, life-and-death issue for so many blacks and Hispanics trapped in high-crime urban areas.  Too many come to physical harm, have their property stolen, or lose their jobs as businesses are driven from their neighborhoods.  Clinton seems more focused on helping criminals rather than their victims.

Flashback: KKK gave Hillary $20,000 — 'Clinton is our choice'.  Hillary Clinton is poised to give a speech today supposedly tying Donald Trump to the Ku Klux Klan, but she likely won't address the $20,000 the group says it gave her.  "For the KKK, Clinton is our choice," Will Quigg, a Grand Dragon in a California branch of the KKK, said in April.  "She is friends with the Klan," Quigg said.  "A lot of people don't realize that.  She's friends with Senator Byrd.  He's been an Exulted Cyclops in the Klan.  He's been King Kleagle."

White House rejects Trump's claim that blacks are worse off under Obama.  Despite government data supporting Donald Trump's claim that blacks are worse off under President Obama, the White House insisted Thursday [8/25/2016] that blacks have made progress under the first black president and that the Republican nominee would reverse those gains.  Mr. Trump's pitch that black Americans have "nothing to lose" by voting for him is clearly irritating the White House, which tried but failed to muster much convincing evidence that life for blacks in America has improved over the past eight years.

Hillary's Race War.  Hillary Clinton has met with leaders of a racist hate group responsible for torching cities and inciting the murders of police officers.  Deray McKesson, one of the Black Lives Matter hate group leaders she met with, had praised the looting of white people and endorsed cop killers Assata Shakur and Mumia Abu-Jamal.  The Black Lives Matter hate group had specifically made a point of targeting white people in "white spaces" for harassment.  It would go on to incite the mass murder of police officers in Dallas and other racist atrocities.  Despite all this, Hillary Clinton has never disavowed the racist hate group.  Instead she doubled down on supporting the hate group and its icons at the Democratic National Convention.  Now, after Trump's appeal to the black community, Hillary is desperately trying to divide us by race.

Trump: Democrats Have Run Cities For Decades And "Have Produced Only Poverty, Failing Schools and Broken Homes".  Donald Trump rips Hillary Clinton and the Democratic party for leaving the black and Latino community in poverty.  "The Democratic party has run nearly every inner city for 50 years, 60 years, 70 years, and even more than 100 years they have produced only poverty, failing schools, and broken homes," Trump said at a Monday night [8/22/2016] campaign rally in Akron, Ohio.  "Hillary Clinton has totally forgotten the first rule of public service, the job of an elected official is to serve the citizens of the United States," Trump also said.

Donald Trump to black voters: 'What do you have to lose?'.  Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has made a direct appeal to African-American voters, saying "What do you have to lose?"  Mr Trump told a nearly all-white audience in Michigan that black voters "are living in poverty" and their "schools are no good".  He promised to "produce" for African-Americans where Democrats had failed.  "If you keep voting for the same people, you will keep getting exactly the same result," he said.

Irony Squared:  Could Donald Trump Be the Savior of Black America?  Be careful what you wish for, as they say, because Holder and Obama — whatever they pretended and pretend to themselves and others — were seeking to use this dialogue to expand the liberal/progressive agenda for minority communities initiated by Lyndon Johnson, which largely has been a disaster by almost all measures compared to the majority culture.  The principal substantive result to come from Johnson's War on Poverty was the validation of that famous prediction attributed to the Texan:  "I'll have those [N-words] voting for us for the next two hundred years." That proved to be true and the outcome of that repulsive statement, these days, is the black family has been decimated, African-American unemployment (particularly among the young) is massive, and violence is extreme and growing in their urban neighborhoods.  Obama and Holder, intelligent men, must realize this on some level, which makes their adherence to the same strategy — more and more welfare, more and more food stamps, more and more reliance on government, year after year — more than slightly sinister, even veering to the sadistic.

The Scourge Of Racism In America.  Oh yes, there is significant racism in America today.  It is alive and well, and it is systemic.  Not in the way progressive activists would have you believe — that it's "open season on young black men," for example — but in the way the Democratic Party views and treats black Americans.  It's every bit as nefarious and damaging as Democrats' segregationist past; only this time the bigotry is couched in compassion. [...] To say Democrats take black voters for granted is an understatement.  To take someone for granted is to be confident they'll always be there, no matter how you treat them.

Trump: The Democrats Have Taken Advantage Of African-American Voters.  [Scroll down]  "My opponent, Hillary, would rather protect the offender than the victim," he said.  "That is a big problem in our society."  He continued:  "Hillary Clinton-backed policies are responsible for the problems in the inner cities today and a vote for her is a vote for another generation of poverty, high crime, and lost opportunities.  I care too much about my country to let this happen."  At this, the crowd broke into a chant of:  "USA! USA! USA!"

Lamont Hill:  Just Because Poor Cities Are Run by Democrats, Doesn't Mean Democrats Are to Blame.  On Wednesday's [8/17/2016] CNN New Day, Chris Cuomo brought on CNN commentator, author and host of BET News Marc Lamont Hill and former Secret Service agent and current candidate for congress in Florida Dan Bongino, to discuss Trump polling poorly with African-Americans.  While Bongino argued that democrat run cities have failed black communities, Lamont Hill claimed that poverty and Democrat machines are connected, but that "doesn't mean" being a Democrat makes you poor.  After Cuomo brought up a new ABC News/WSJ poll that predicted only one percent of blacks would vote for Trump, he asked Bongino why Trump was unable to make the case to blacks that their Democrat-run communities would only keep them in poverty.

Lying Black Folks to Death.  Leftists — aided by our corrupt news media — are past masters of replacing truth with narrative. [...] When it comes to the problems of black Americans, the left outdoes itself in the art of deception.  Virtually every assertion of the violent Black Lives Matter hate movement is a falsehood.  Even the name of this vicious collection of groups is offensive.  When challenged by those who respond with "All Lives Matter," the BLM people thug-splain that what they really meant was "Black Lives Matter too."  But this assumes that white people don't know this, that blacks in this country are treated as if their lives matter less than others.

Clinton Chooses Black Lives Matter Over Law Enforcement Support.  Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton pursued the endorsement of Black Lives Matter activists but blew off the largest police union in the United States.  After almost a year of meeting with Black Lives Matter representatives, Clinton failed to garner the support of the movement's co-founder Alicia Garza, but she managed to receive the endorsement of mothers championed by the Black Lives Matter movement.  Garza recently slammed Clinton, saying the former secretary of state only "uses black people for votes" and "photo ops," but doesn't "do anything for black communities" after getting elected.

DNC Corruption At the Core — The Latest Evidence.  [Scroll down] The DNC emails also prove how they take for granted the Hispanic and the black vote.  Multiple emails from DNC staffers referred to the "buckets" of voters, based on race.  They further prove how they take those voters for granted by claiming that they are the most "brand-loyal" voters for the party.  It should be immensely disturbing to those voters that they're assumed to be so loyal that they are merely blind puppets of the party that panders to their special interests.  Equally disturbing was the pejorative way they are sometimes referenced by the DNC.  One staff member, and Obama campaign veteran, Rebecca Christopher, referred to their courtship of Hispanic voters as "taco bowl outreach."  That kind of "branding" should cause all sentient Hispanic voters to rethink their commitment and fealty to the DNC.

Obama's news conference:  Everything wrong with Democrats, encapsulated.  In President Obama's news conference [8/4/2016], he was correct that so many young people going to prison has devastated communities, but he fails to recognize that many of the policies that he and the Democrats advocate contribute greatly to the problem.  The anti-poverty Great Society programs from the 1960s contributed greatly to the breakup of families, especially minority families.  The majority of minority children are born out of wedlock, and single parenthood is the greatest indicator of who will end up in poverty and dependent on government.  Democrats generally want to expand these programs, even with their terrible results.  It helps greatly to have two parents as role models.  Also, it is generally Democrats who block big box stores from building in inner cities.  This takes away opportunities for inner-city youth to start moving up the economic ladder.  This causes teens and young adults to be on the street more or join gangs, and this causes more young people to commit crimes and end up in prison.  Now Democrats want to massively increase the minimum wage which, along with other costly regulations like Obamacare, further takes away opportunities.

Michelle Obama and the Content of Her Character.  [Scroll down]  She and her husband cannot shed the belief that "being an authentic black person involves in some elemental way seeing oneself as an object of mistreatment by white people, while participating in a collective consciousness of that mistreatment with other black people."  Thus, America is reminded that Michelle "wakes up every morning in a house that was built by slaves."  Does she explain that Hillary Clinton — the woman she supports — received enormous sums of money from countries where slavery still exists?  Does Michelle proudly assert the enormous strides America has made in ending slavery whereas the African nation of Mauritania is now the number one slave capital of the world?  Does Michelle acknowledge the blood spilled by black and white people who despised slavery and gave the last true measure of their devotion?  Does the First Lady acknowledge that the Democratic Party voted against the 13th, 14th and 15th amendments?  Does she remind her audience that the Republican Party was the party of ending slavery and that the KKK was actually the military arm of the Democratic Party?  Hardly.

Do Black Lives Really Matter to Democrats?  The Black Lives Matter movement arose in 2014 in response to what it perceived as a spike in extrajudicial killings of unarmed African-American men by police officers.  An analysis of police killings of black men from January of 2013 through June of 2016, though, shows that the cities in which the vast majority of these killings occurred were in cities that the Democratic Party has controlled for generations.  According to data compiled by the Mapping Police Violence research collaborative, there are 67 city police departments whose officers have killed two or more black men since the beginning of 2013.  Just seven of those departments are in cities with a Republican mayor.

The secret history of the Democratic Party.  [P]rogressives who are forced to acknowledge the Democratic Party's pro-slavery history promptly respond, "We admit to being the party of slavery, and we did uphold the institution for more than a century, but slavery ended in 1865, so all of this was such a long time ago.  You can't blame us now for the antebellum wrongs of the Democratic Party."  Yes, but what about the postbellum crimes of the Democratic Party?  From Democratic support for slavery, let's turn to the party's complicity in segregation and the Ku Klux Klan.  Democrats in the 1880s invented segregation and Jim Crow laws that lasted through the 1960s.  Democrats also came up with the "separate but equal" rationale that justified segregation and pretended that it was for the benefit of African Americans.  The Ku Klux Klan was founded in 1866 in Pulaski, Tennessee by a group of former confederate soldiers; its first grand wizard was a confederate general who was also a delegate to the Democratic National Convention. [...] Leading Democrats including at least one president, two Supreme Court justices, and innumerable Senators and Congressmen were Klan members.  The last one, Robert Byrd, died in 2010 and was eulogized by President Obama and former President Bill Clinton.

Black Votes Matter.  If Republicans could get 20 percent of black votes, the Democrats would be ruined.  This is highly unlikely, given the approach used by Republicans.  However, the point is that Democrats must not only continue to get nine-tenths of black votes, they also need to get a high turnout of black voters on election day.  People who expected the election of President Barack Obama to lead to racial healing and a post-racial society failed to take account of the political reality that racial healing and a post-racial society would, at a minimum, reduce black voter turnout.  Black votes matter to many politicians — more so than black lives.

Keith Ellison Embarrassed After Falsely Calling Racist Democrat George Wallace a Republican.  Rep.  Tom Cole (R., Okla.) embarrassed Rep.  Keith Ellison (D., Minn.) on ABC Sunday morning [7/24/2016] when the latter falsely claimed that former Democratic Alabama governor George Wallace was a Republican.  Wallace is perhaps best remembered as being one of the most strident supporters of segregation in the 20th century.  He sought the Democratic nomination for president multiple times, with racist stances as a key of his platform.  In 1968, he ran as the American Independent Party candidate and received 46 electoral votes, making him the most recent third-party candidate to capture votes in the Electoral College.  Ellison was attacking Donald Trump when he made his false charge.

Racist DNC Email Flagrantly Makes Fun Of Black Woman's Name.  Democratic operatives made fun of a black woman's name in an email chain recently leaked by the website Wikileaks.  An email with Scott Comer, the finance chief of staff and LGBT finance director for the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Zachary Allen with the firm TIPAH Consulting, makes fun of LaQueenia Gibson's name.  Gibson is an executive assistant for the company Haddad Brands.

Check Out The Incredibly Racist DNC Emails Uncovered In The WikiLeaks Document Dump.  Democrats have long styled themselves as champions of American minorities.  However, the DNC emails recently released by WikiLeaks paint a much more dark picture of the Democratic National Committee.  One email, addressed to DNC Finance Chief of Staff Scott Comer, pokes fun at the name of an African American Executive Assistant for apparel company Haddad Brands named LaQueenia Gibson.  "LaQueenia is a NAME!" the email reads.  "I'm sorry, boo.  I hope you got a raise with this title."

The Anti-Cop President.  [The 1960s] sexual revolution removed the stigma from out-of-wedlock pregnancy.  An explosion of inner-city illegitimacy ensued, with between 70 and 90 percent of black children born to single mothers, depending on the city. [...] So by the early 1990s, murders in New York, for example — mostly by young black men killing other blacks — were occurring on average every four hours, every day.  The same spirit of elite racial contrition made generous welfare payments, with virtually no questions asked, seem like appropriate reparations for the long mistreatment of African Americans.  In this way, government ended up enabling the spread of out-of-wedlock childbearing, which the culture had legitimated.  But those fatherless welfare families proved far from ideal for raising successful, law-abiding children.  What came to be called the cycle of poverty — single parenthood, school dropout, drug use, crime, non-work, welfare dependency — went into overdrive.

Obama Is The Last Person To Turn To For Healing And Peace.  [Scroll down]  The Democrats have established their future voting block and re-election efforts on poor people, disproportionately black under the Obama administration, whose population is also disproportionately unemployed and poorly educated with no fathers in the home and whose mothers are swamped with too many welfare children to raise alone on a barely existent welfare budget and living in crime-ridden areas.

Ignorance of Facts Fuels the Anti-Cop 'Movement'.  After the shooting deaths of black suspects at the hands of the police in Minnesota and Louisiana, Hillary Clinton said, "White people ... have to start listening to the legitimate cries" of black people.  This is the usual kind of condescending pap we always hear from Democrats.  But in their case, the reason is votes.  In order for the Democratic Party to maintain the 95 percent monolithic hold they have with black voters, they need to create scenarios of anger and fear against so-called "structural" or "institutional" or "systemic" racism. [...] And there's this.  What's hard about complying with a cop's order so you don't get shot?  There is no right to defy a lawful order.

How The War On Drugs Fails Black Communities.  Writing for the Cato Institute, John McWhorter noted:  "It has become a norm for black children to grow up in single-parent homes, their fathers away in prison for long spells and barely knowing them.  In poor and working-class black America, a man and a woman raising their children together is, of all things, an unusual sight."  The drug war plays an oversize role in this trend.  Keeping drugs illegal makes selling them more profitable than they would otherwise be.  As such, the war on drugs creates incentives for young black men to seek employment in the drug business rather than seek lower-paying legal employment.  This incentive structure unfortunately starts a vicious circle of incarceration followed by "a failure to build the job skills for legal employment that serve as a foundation for a productive existence in middle and later life," McWhorter continued.

11 Horrible Things Hillary Said To The NAACP About Cops And Race.  On Monday [7/18/2016], Hillary Clinton descended on the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) to pander to black Americans by bashing the police while telling black folks that every complaint they ever had about the cops is fully justified.  Hillary's ham-handed approach to pandering has been well-established:  whether she's painting herself as a Hispanic abuela or Tweeting in fluent Spanish or pretending she carries around hot sauce to pander to black radio hosts, Hillary's pandering is obvious and mechanical.

America's Worst President?  [Scroll down]  Believing that welfare payments constituted well-deserved reparations for 300 years of slavery and oppression, we New Yorkers created a come-and-get-it dole that ended up with one in eight of our neighbors on the welfare rolls — paid for by the rest of us and resulting in a multi-generational underclass.  We entertained the foolish notion that black crime was a manly revolt against oppression — that black criminals were only protesting against the closure of all avenues of honest advancement for their race, as well as against the daily humiliation heaped on African-Americans.  The resulting depolicing of black neighborhoods and unwillingness of courts to punish black criminals drove crime to Hobbesian levels and turned minority neighborhoods into killing fields, where mothers put their kids to bed in the bathtub, trying to keep them safe from stray bullets.  They would never send them out for a bottle of milk or take them into the street to learn to ride a bike.

Black against White.  Anyone who believed that Obama's policies were going to improve the lives of black Americans were oblivious to reality.  Economic advancement comes through hard work, coupled by the right policies.  Obama offered the wrong policies and allowed people to think that they no longer needed to put in the extra hours.  He would take care of them, would liberate them from the oppressive shackles of white racism.  His constituents refuse to see Obama as a Pied Piper so they continue to keep blaming white people.  Obama has not failed them.  White racists have obstructed his agenda and did not allow it to benefit them.  Yet, if you tell blacks that they are not responsible for their lives and tht anything bad that they do is the fault of their white puppet-masters, you are teaching a debilitating lesson.  They are learning that they are not responsible for their own actions.  If the deck is stacked against you, why bother?  Exonerating blacks while blaming white has been the hallmark of the Obama administration.

Why Dems Try to Break Black Hearts and Only Trump Can Fix It.  This election cycle is dominated by Democrat race-baiting as usual.  Trump's massively popular nationalist platform to stop illegal immigration and suspend Muslim immigration is labeled racist.  What is new are perfidious Republican leaders and pundits rushing to join Democrats in their false accusation against Trump.  Democrats have called every Presidential candidate for decades racist.  They have to.  Telling blacks that Republicans wish them ill keeps Democrats in power.  They don't care about the damage they are doing to the country and to black lives.  Blacks are cannon fodder in the Democrat war for power.  There is something profoundly depressing and pathetic that until Trump, our Republican leaders have been willing to write off the black vote and accept the Democrat poison that our party is made up of racist white people.

One Week After Orlando, Democrats Feature Anti-Gay Imam at Banquet.  On June 19th, the Florida Democratic Party held its annual Leadership Blue Gala event.  US Senator from New Jersey, Cory Booker, was the keynote speaker.  Also listed as speakers were House Democratic Leader-Designate Janet Cruz, Senate Democratic Leader-Designate Oscar Braynon, DNC Chair and Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, US Senator Bill Nelson, and Florida Democratic Chair Allison Tant.  However, one of the other speakers, Maulana Shafayat Mohamed, who partook in opening prayers, should have been the main concern.  Shafayat Mohamed is the imam of the Darul Uloom mosque, located in Pembroke Pines, Florida.  The mosque has been a haven for terror-related individuals, many of whom have been imprisoned — or, in one case, killed in an overseas anti-insurgent raid — due to their jihadist activities.

The Modern Enemies of Native Americans.  North America's native tribes are as complex and diverse as the immigrants which now populate the continent.  Historically, the federal government sought devious and violent means to control indigenous populations, and ultimately segregated most tribes by 'giving' them tribal lands and reservations.  This social experiment has failed many Native Americans, yet many more have successfully assimilated into contemporary life and economic activities.  But universally valued by native tribes are their ancient cultural identities and ancestral lands.  Despite "progress," the 21st Century finds the federal government still warring with some native tribes, while the American Left, namely the environmentalist movement, exploits their grievances, real or fabricated, to advance a progressive agenda.  Stories illustrating ongoing conflicts between Native Americans and federal agencies, environmentalist groups, and each other, are many and often heartbreaking.

The Killing Fields of Chicago.  Heather MacDonald's analysis of what is happening in Chicago today is accurate and frightening.  She shows what happens when cynical politicians and idealistic social justice warriors hijack law enforcement to impose a narrative on reality. [...] The larger narrative attempts to explain away the fact that the Obama presidency has been a miserable failure, especially when it comes to the lives of the inner city blacks who supported him so fervently.  As with all things Obama, the president's failures are explained away by racism.  As for the notion of exculpating criminals and terrorists, the response to the terrorist attack on the Pulse nightclub has shown us the pathetic spectacle of leftists, liberals and progressive shifting the blame from Islam, from Muslims and from the Obama administration... onto guns and on Christians.  In their eyes it all comes down to white privilege.

90% of the Racism in America Comes from the Democratic Party and the Left.  I am uniquely positioned to say this because I spent most of my life on the Left and was a civil rights worker in the South in my early twenties.  I was also, to my everlasting regret, a donor to the Black Panther Party in the seventies.  So I have seen this personally from both sides and my conclusion is inescapable.  The Left is far, far worse.  They are obsessed with race in a manner that does not allow them to see straight.  Further, they project racism onto others continually, exacerbating situations, which in most instances weren't even there in the first place.  From Al Sharpton to Hillary Clinton, they all do it.  Barack Obama is one of the worst offenders in this regard.

Trump and Democratic Political Incorrectness.  Remember the time a presidential candidate suggested that Gandhi used to run "a gas station down in St.  Louis."  No it wasn't Trump.  That was Hillary Clinton.  Had Trump said it, we would still be hearing about it.  But since Hillary Clinton was responsible for it, it went down the memory hole.  Along with her more recent "Colored People Time" gag.  And who can forget the time that Trump said, "You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent."  But that wasn't Trump.  It was actually Vice President Joe Biden.  But still it was indisputably offensive when Trump told the Asian Chamber of Commerce, "I don't think you're smarter than anybody else, but you've convinced a lot of us you are."  Then he followed that up by joking, "One problem that I've had today is keeping my Wongs straight."  You would have to be ridiculously politically incorrect or an outright buffoon to say something like that to the Asian Chamber of Commerce.  And this is exactly why Trump is... but wait, those lines actually came from Democratic Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid.

Sheriff Clarke:  Democrats 'decimated the black family'.  Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Sunday accused the Democratic Party of "bigotry" that has "decimated the black family."  Clarke, who has become a leading conservative black voice on gun rights and other issues, was responding to Hillary Clinton's charge Saturday evening that a Trump presidency would put "more kids at risk of violence and bigotry."  "If black kids are at risk from anybody, it's from other black kids in black-on-black crime," Clarke said.

The Democratic Party's Evolving Racism Toward Blacks.  [Scroll down]  Perhaps there is no clearer indicator that the Democratic Party cannot shake its historic view of African American potential than affirmative action.  They refuse to consider replacing race based affirmative action with affirmative action based on socio-economic status.  In other words, they insist that colleges lower admission standards for black students from wealthy families as compared to white students from poor families, since the African Americans are (always) "disadvantaged."  Further signs that, in reality, Democrats continue to hold African Americans in low regard is their venomous attack on blacks that don't support the liberal cause.  Today, Democrat treatment of conservative blacks is reminiscent of their treatment of all blacks before the "great party switch" of the 1960s.

Black Pastors Slam Obama Admin's Equivalence of Gender Identity Ideology with Black Civil Rights.  The president of the Coalition of African-American Pastors (CAAP) says that the Obama administration's assertion that single-sex bathrooms are discriminating against gender-confused individuals in much the same way that blacks experienced discrimination in the United States is a "gross insult" to all who fought for equality for African-Americans.

Where are racial gaps in school test scores worst?  The new national database of school-district test scores created by education researchers at Stanford and Harvard reveals that the single widest white-black racial gap in American public school districts is in the city most synonymous with leftism since 1964: Berkeley, California.  How badly do blacks lag whites in Berkeley public schools?  Berkeley's white-black gap is 1.60 standard deviations.  In other words, the median black student would score at only the 5th percentile if he were white.  Yet, Berkeley is ferociously antiracist.

The Secret Racist History of the Democratic Party.  Have you heard of Josiah Walls or Hiram Rhodes Revels?  How about Joseph Hayne Rainey?  If not, you're not alone.  I taught history and I never knew half of our nation's past until I began to re-educate myself by learning from original source materials, rather than modern textbooks written by progressive Democrats with an agenda.  Interestingly, Democrats have long ago erased these historic figures from our textbooks, only to offer deceitful propaganda and economic enticements in an effort to convince people, especially black Americans, that it's the Democrats rather than Republicans who are the true saviors of civil liberties.  Luckily, we can still venture back into America's real historical record to find that facts are stubborn things.

Why has there been an exodus of black residents from West Coast liberal hubs?  The Black Lives Matter movement has brought the challenges facing black America to the fore, and introduced racially conscious quality-of-life questions into the national debate.  How are black residents in America's cities faring?  And how are those cities doing in meeting the aspirations of their black residents, judged especially by the ultimate barometer: whether blacks choose to move to these cities, or stay in them?  Though results vary to some extent, the broad trend is clear:  West Coast progressive enclaves are either seeing an exodus of blacks or are failing to attract them.  Midwestern and Northeastern urban areas are attracting blacks to the extent that they are affordable or providing middle class economic opportunities.  And Southern cities are now experiencing the most significant gains.

Symbolism Instead of History.  [Scroll down]  In fact, Obama has done little for black people.  Larry Elder lays out the cold hard facts:  "The net worth of all non-white families has fallen almost 20 percent since Obama took office.  For blacks, it's even worse. [...]"  And the black unemployment rate is 9.2 percent, twice that of whites.  Black pundits, professors, and race-baiters have cleaned up on white guilt and vote-trolling Democrats, but blacks most in need have been abandoned.  Having done little for a majority of blacks, Obama instead has peddled the symbolic racial politics of outfits like Black Lives Matter, which claims that there is an epidemic of policemen wantonly gunning down innocent black men in the streets.

The Liberal War on Black Men.  In 1991, President George H.W. Bush nominated Clarence Thomas, then a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, and former chairman of the Equal Opportunity Employment Commission, to replace Thurgood Marshall on the U.S. Supreme Court. [...] The Senate Judiciary Committee, under the chairmanship of now-Vice President Joe Biden, allowed Thomas's nomination hearings to become a circus in which Thomas was dragged through a personal hell, resulting in him saying, after his confirmation:  "Mere confirmation, even to the Supreme Court, seemed pitifully small compensation for what had been done to me." [...] Rather than the nomination and appointment of a black man, who rose from humble and poor roots, to the U.S. Supreme Court, becoming a moment of pride for the nation and for black Americans, it was transformed, at these hearings, into an opportunity for character assassination and shame.

The long war against Clarence Thomas.  In its war for America, the left never rests, sometimes falters but rarely allows itself to fail.  It works tirelessly to "fundamentally transform the nation" and smashes anyone and anything that gets in its way.  Consider the pitched battle it has waged against Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas over the past quarter-century.  Instead of celebrating and honoring a black man who rose from grinding poverty in the segregated South to sit on the nation's highest court, the left sees an existential threat:  a black pro-life, pro-gun conservative who has spent his life crushing leftist orthodoxy.  He must, therefore, not simply be opposed, but destroyed, regardless of how long it takes.

Report: Chicago police have 'no regard' for minority lives.  Police in Chicago have "no regard for the sanctity of life when it comes to people of color" and have alienated blacks and Hispanics for decades by using excessive force and honoring a code of silence, a task force declared Wednesday [4/13/2016] in a report that seeks sweeping changes to the nation's third-largest police force.

Task force accuses Chicago police of institutional racism.  Chicago is once again seething with rage after a deadly shooting by a police officer, the latest in a spate of violence that has strained relations between the community and law enforcement.  Hundreds of residents took to the streets Tuesday night [4/12/2016], one day after authorities identified the person shot and killed by police as 16-year-old Pierre Loury.

The Editor says...
Before you get angry at the cops, ask yourself this question:  Which political party has ruled Chicago for the last several decades?  If there is a system that condones excessive force and permits a "code of silence," who is to blame?  The correct answer is:  the Democrats!

Sanders Says He'll Apologize For Slavery.  He Should Start By Apologizing For Socialism.  [Scroll down]  Sanders thinks he has a shot at the nomination if he can just pry enough black support away from Hillary.  So he'll say anything, including imputing pro-slavery motivations to his opponents.  In reality, of course, the president apologizing for slavery 150 years after its conclusion only exacerbates racial tensions by reinforcing the notion that America is irredeemably racist; Sanders' protestations that he wants to "wipe the slate clean" are nonsense.  Teaching yet another generation of young black people that America was born in sin and raised in evil and bears a stain that will never be washed away — all of that will do nothing to empower individuals to take responsibility for their own lives.  But Sanders doesn't want individuals taking responsibility for their own lives.  It's government's job to take responsibility for everybody's life — to seize from them their property and their labor for its own ends.  Which, come to think of it, sounds a lot more like involuntary servitude than freedom.

Under Obama, race relations [are] at [an] all-time low.  A poll finds that more than one-third of Americans say they worry "a great deal" about the state of race relations in the United States, the highest number in the poll's 15-year span.  Thirty-five percent of Americans in the Gallup survey released Monday [4/11/2016] said they are extremely worried about the state of race relations, up from 28 percent in 2015.  That number is also up by more than 100 percent since 2014, when 17 percent of Americans said they were greatly worried about racial strife in America.  The numbers fluctuated in the teens during President Obama's first six years in office, but race relations tumbled to a new low during the first black president's last two years.

Magic Honky Theory.  For as long as most people reading this have been alive, the cult in charge of America has preached the need for full integration.  This has led to endless campaigns to "desegregate" the schools, housing, jobs, sports clubs, etc. [...] The way around this has been to argue that "diversity" makes everyone better somehow.  This proximity effect only works in your neighborhood, of course.  The bunkered enclaves where our betters live are almost all white.  Like so much of what these people say in public, it is intended to obscure, not explain.  Ask these people why diversity is good and they start mumbling about their favorite Ethiopian restaurant.  Western civilization did OK without having a single Ethiopian restaurant for a few millennia, but we're to believe it is now a necessity.

When Black Voters Exited Left.  While the passage of the Civil Rights Act helped Johnson earn support from 94 percent of black voters in 1964, there is a gulf between what black Americans hoped the legislation would achieve and what Democratic politicians actually delivered.  Although the Civil Rights Act of 1964 helped end apartheid conditions in the South, a critical objective for which grassroots black Southern activists fought and died, the legislation did little to address the structures of racism that shaped black lives in cities like Chicago, Los Angeles, and Philadelphia.  This was an intentional consequence of how the bill's sponsors, largely liberals from the North, Midwest, and West, crafted the legislation.

Con Artists: How the Democrat Party Eviscerated the Black Family Unit.  It's well known how in 1965 Daniel Patrick Moynihan, assistant secretary of labor to Democrat President Johnson, warned that the black family was on the verge of a "complete breakdown" because of growing illegitimacy rates:  in 1963 the out-of-wedlock birth rate for whites was 3 percent, and for blacks it was 23.6 percent.  Moynihan was part of a generation of Democrats who cared about lifting blacks up into the ranks of equal opportunity with whites, back in the days before the Democrat Party became completely morally corrupt.  In his 1965 "The Negro Family: The Case for National Action," Moynihan observed that because more blacks were being born into unmarried homes, more blacks were becoming dependent on welfare to survive.

Blacks Mainly Backslide under Obama.  With President Obama's gas tank now less than an eighth full, it's amazing where he has taken black Americans.  Mainly, it's been a long ride in reverse.  Even liberal black broadcaster Tavis Smiley has criticized Obama for this.  As Smiley told HuffPost Live's Alyona Minkovski, "Sadly — and it pains me to say this — over the last decade, black folk, in the era of Obama, have lost ground in every major economic category."  Smiley is almost completely correct.  Based on the Obama administration's own latest-available statistics by the most basic economic-performance metrics — with one key exception — black Americans are worse off now than when Obama was sworn in on January 20, 2009.

A Trump-Lover's Manifesto.  [Scroll down]  People who engage in these real forms of racism always keep their agenda secret, which is why they are the loudest attackers against Trump.  He blows their cover by getting people everywhere to say what they really think about race instead of continuing America's politically correct charade.  True malevolence adores secrecy and dissembling.  More often than not, racial injustice thrives under disguises of condescension, exploitation, and mental manipulation.  Higher education, Hollywood, and big-city bureaucracies are the biggest foes of Black Lives Matter despite the fact that they are universally led by Democrats who claim to love and defend people of color.

Widely Held Beliefs That Are Either Untrue or Meaningless, Part 2.  A pillar of contemporary leftism is the notion of "white privilege."  Given that a generation of high school and college students are being taught that a great number of "unearned privileges" accrue to white Americans — the charge of white privilege demands rational inquiry.  The assertion turns out to be largely meaningless.  And more significantly, it does great harm to blacks. [...] So, then why all this left-wing talk about white privilege?  The major reason is in order to portray blacks as victims.  This achieves two huge goals for the left, one political, the other philosophical.  The political goal is to ensure that blacks continue to view America as racist.  The left knows that the only way to retain political power in America is to perpetuate the belief among black Americans that their primary problem is white racism.  Only then will blacks continue to regard the left and the Democrats as indispensable.

A Refresher on Supreme Court Nominations.  [Scroll down]  As the hearing progressed the Democrats saw that they were losing this battle.  Committee Chairmen Joe Biden's questioning had failed to reveal a chink in the defensive armor of [Clarence] Thomas.  The Democrats were reduced to bringing in a ringer; an unknown [woman] named Anita Hill.  Her testimony elicited the intended, feigned outrage, fueled by coordinated efforts.  However, Thomas, now justifiably outraged, struck back:  "This is a circus.  It's a national disgrace.  And from my standpoint as a black American, as far as I'm concerned, it is a high-tech lynching for uppity blacks who in any way deign to think for themselves, to do for themselves, to have different ideas, and it is a message that unless you kowtow to an old order, this is what will happen to you.  You will be lynched, destroyed, caricatured by a committee of the U.S. Senate, rather than hung from a tree."  Thomas fought back and was confirmed by the narrowest of margins.

With An All-White Candidate Slate, Democrats Fret About White Voters.  The Democrats' continuous bean-counting about race may just be catching up to them.  Last week, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid defended the patently undemocratic "superdelegate" system in the early Democratic Iowa caucus and New Hampshire primary, (both of which stiffed Bernie Sanders on delegates) as necessary because the states' Democratic voters are just too white for him.

Hillary X.  [Scroll down]  Hillary as a candidate and a person has no connection to the black community.  Her husband was routinely called "the first black president" during his tenure, but that was meaningless shtick used to placate discontented voters.  What has Hillary done to earn anyone's vote, let alone support specifically from black voters?  Nothing.  Well, nothing except pandering.  Progressives derive their power from division — race, gender, sexuality, income, you name it.  Racial division is their political "comfort food," their most successful weapon.  And it's about to be deployed like never before.

White Lady with $650K Speaking Fee Wants Black Americans to Know She's Down with Their Struggle.  [Scroll down]  I'm glad we are finally getting around to airing out a subject that's been put on the back burner for so long.  After the Democrats got a free pass on making the African-American citizens of Detroit significantly poorer for almost half of a century, Hillary probably rightfully feels that there is no level of Demspeak feel-good pandering that she can't get away with now.

Why Are Liberals So Racist When It Comes to Clarence Thomas?  There's something endlessly fascinating about the left's insistence that Clarence Thomas is not "authentically" black — that this descendant of slaves, this grandson of sharecroppers, this hardworking man who rose to the grandest heights of the legal profession, is a traitor to his race and his class.  I don't know what it is about Thomas that drives the left so nuts, but it's there, and it's very real.  Could you imagine what would happen if someone on the right described a brilliant liberal African-American of being no more than a slave controlled by white devils?

Bernie Sanders confronted by supporters demanding slavery reparations as he courts the black vote.  Bernie Sanders was repeatedly pressed to endorse reparations tonight by his own supporters at a 'Black America' community forum.  'I know you're scared to say 'black,' I know you're scared to say 'reparations,' panelist Felicia Perry said, then told him, 'Can you please talk specifically about black people and reparations?'  Sanders replied, 'You and I may have a disagreement on this,' but 'it's not just black.  This is Latinos.  There are areas of America, more rural areas where its whites, OK?  As he talked about income inequality and poverty in the 'African-American community an audience member interrupted to urge him to use the term 'black.'  'I've said 'black' 50 times.  That's the 51st,' Sanders declared.

Black lives don't matter to Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton — only black votes.  Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is running such a white campaign that he rushed to New York City the day after his New Hampshire win to have breakfast with Al Sharpton to buy, I mean beg, for the black vote.  Fresh off the heels of walloping Hillary by 22 percent margin, one would think Sanders would take a moment to celebrate or head to the next primary state South Carolina to campaign.  But ironically for the Democrat Party that professes diversity, Sanders is the whitest candidate running.  He represents Vermont, one of the whitest states in the US; he won the New Hampshire primary, one of the whitest primaries (with over 90 percent white population).

Sanders: We Must End Over-Policing in African-American Neighborhoods.  Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) called for an end of "over-policing" in black neighborhoods during the PBS Democratic presidential debate in Milwaukee, Wis., on Thursday night [2/11/2016].  "What we have to do is end over-policing in African-American neighborhoods.  The reality is that both the African-American community and the white community do marijuana at about equal rates," Sanders said.  "The reality is four times as many blacks get arrested for marijuana.  Truth is that far more blacks get stopped for traffic violations."

The Editor says...
Who says those neighborhoods are over-policed?  The police should go where the crimes and criminals are.  Is Bernie's concern really about (the votes of) blacks, or is he really after the legalization of marijuana?

The Myths of Black Lives Matter.  A television ad for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign now airing in South Carolina shows the candidate declaring that "too many encounters with law enforcement end tragically."  She later adds:  "We have to face up to the hard truth of injustice and systemic racism."

Ben Carson: Black Dependence on Democrats Has Meant 'Poverty and Broken Homes and Crime and Incarceration'.  GOP presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson discussed the overwhelming level of support for the Democrat Party among Black Americans during an interview on Breitbart News Daily interview with host Stephen K. Bannon.  Carson says that relationship, "has yielded more poverty and broken homes and crime and incarceration and it's completely unnecessary."  "We need to talk about the effects of out of wedlock birth.  How that stops that woman's education and sends that child into poverty," he later added.

The Four Types of Socialists.  Socialists reject the idea that the government serves the people and embrace the idea that the government rules the people.  After all, if the people are too stupid to wisely spend their own money they clearly need help in surviving life.  The attitude is very similar to the one slave owners used in an attempt to justify slavery.  According to the slavers, Blacks just couldn't take care of themselves and they needed the "helping hand" of white folk to survive.

Left spin cycle: Cruz and Rubio aren't, you know... Latino Latino.  We're having ourselves an historic presidential campaign in case you hadn't noticed.  Sure, we've only had one state vote so far, but a new record has been set.  We now have not one, but two Hispanic candidates who have received more votes and more delegates than any other in the history of presidential primaries.  This is a truly great day for diversity and the future of the American melting pot.  Or at least it would be if either of them had been Democrats.

NYT Column: Cruz & Rubio [are] Not Really Latino Because [they are] Not Liberal.  Your last name could be Cruz or Rubio but unless you pass the stringent political tests of certain self-appointed gatekeepers, you are not authentically Latino.  One such gatekeeper is Roberto Suro who wrote in a New York Times column that Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio can't be considered to really be Latino because they do not subscribe to liberal identity politics.

Colorblind America: A Malignant Fallacy.  Yes, African Americans are slightly more conservative than white Americans on social issues such as abortion and school prayer.  The problem is that African Americans do not vote on these issues.  They vote on one issue:  race.  Wealthy blacks are just as likely as poor blacks to vote for the Democratic candidate.  The reason is simple:  The Democrats are willing to give blacks more goodies.  Republicans should recognize that in the short term there is no way to win the black vote.  What they should do, therefore, is allow the Democratic Party to be the party of blacks and black demands.

Is the Left Even on America's Side Anymore?  [Scroll down]  The Left is blind to the responsibility of inner-city populations for their off-the-charts violent-crime rates.  The failure to embrace the responsibilities of parenthood is as characteristic of the progressive attitude as is its blindness to the betrayal of inner-city communities by Democrats, responsible almost entirely for the disgraceful condition of America's cities.  Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore, St. Louis, and numerous other centers of out-of-control black poverty, failed public-school systems, and black-on-black violence are 100 percent controlled by the Democratic party and have been so for 50 to 100 years.  Yet 95 percent of the black vote and 100 percent of the progressive vote continues to go to Democrats who oppress African Americans.

The Nastiest Insult to Call a Black Man, According to Liberals.  When you're an outspoken black conservative like I am, you grow accustomed to vile names, hate mail, disdainful attitudes, snide comments, and the like.  For reasons unknown, Caucasians espousing conservative values are not sellouts to their fellow white folk, but blacks and Hispanics are. [...] Pretty much all of these personal attacks come from self-described open-minded, inclusive, minority-loving liberal types who cannot see the blatant hypocrisy of their own positions.

Why Fund Amtrak? Because All Must Serve The Capitol.  [Scroll down]  The left is always dabbling in fictional dystopias where there is a yawning chasm between rich and poor, where the country is riven by racial conflict, and where the whole nation has to be impoverished to serve the power and vanity of the Capitol — and yet somehow this is the system they always create when they're in power, in places like Baltimore and Chicago.

Obama and the Democrats' War on Black America.  It may appear to Black Americans that Barack Obama is in their corner, but it's a cunning deception.  His presidency has had a truly malevolent effect on the Black community — by design.  The sole evidence that the White House has any interest whatever in Black America has been an unending stream of rhetoric alleging racism by police against Blacks.  Such a campaign can only spawn more resistance to police in encounters between Blacks and cops.  And since crime is far more prevalent in Black neighborhoods, those encounters are inevitable.  An ancillary Obama campaign makes constant reference to Jim Crow seeping out of every crevice in our society.  In an interview with comedian Marc Maron, he actually driveled this out, after admitting that "race relations have improved significantly during my lifetime."

Rename the Racist Democrat Party.  Former Democratic President Woodrow Wilson may be purged from his alma mater, Princeton University. [...] But if Princeton has to rename anything carrying Woodrow Wilson's name, are there any Democratic presidents that the party and its faithful partisans can keep?  FDR enforced segregation through red-lining and liked to tell jokes about "darkies".  Truman wrote, "I think one man is as good as another so long as he's honest and decent and not a n--ger or a Chinaman."  JFK was disgusted by interracial marriage.  LBJ liked to describe the Civil Rights Act as "the n--ger bill".  Jimmy Carter ran for governor promising that "I can win this election without a single black vote" and accused his opponent of liking Martin Luther King.  Bill Clinton's view of Obama?  "A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee."  If Woodrow Wilson gets the boot for being racist, there isn't a single Democratic president from the last century who can survive the politically correct inquisition.  They were all racist.  Every last one of them.

Does Any of This Campus Turmoil Have to Do with Race?  It is important not to be fooled by all the outward appearances of these campus Chernobyls.  First of all, a small percentage of students are involved in these shenanigans.  Most are busy trying to finish their work or looking on in horror.  Second, racial minorities are simply being exploited in a gigantic bait and switch.  It is usually not students, but rather provocateurs off campus or nestled in the administration who are behind the sit-ins, snap-fests, marches, and mass confessionals.  The easiest way to prove this is by looking at the lists of demands.  There is invariably a lot of bizarre attention paid to the misdeeds of some administrative position and calls for a reorganization of the bureaucratic leadership.  "Fire the vice provost and promote the associate director."  Students don't write stuff like that.

The Curious Case of Black Advocates and MSM Hatred for Dr. Ben Carson.  Racism along with every other sin will exist until Jesus returns.  However, the notion that blacks are suffering, held back, routinely murdered by cops, and victimized by "white privilege" is absurd.  These narratives are manipulative tools to keep blacks voting for Democrats.  Suckered blacks believe voting for Democrats will keep racist white America and Republicans at bay.  After 50 years of voting for Democrats, black life continues to spiral downward in cites controlled by Democrats. [...] The undeniable truth is the American dream is alive and well for all who choose to go for it.  The only real stumbling block for blacks is Obama's economy.

Why the Conventional Wisdom Has Been All Wrong This Election Season.  After Barack Obama's two successful presidential elections, liberal and supposedly far more inclusive Democrats declared themselves the only party that looks like the new multiracial America.  Republicans, in contrast, were written off as mostly old white fogies — has-beens bitterly clinging to their fading prior privilege.  The campaign has exploded that myth too.  The Republican field is far more diverse, although the candidates see their ethnicity as incidental rather than essential, in bumper-sticker fashion, to their personas.

Apache leader offended by Redskins name wore blackface for Halloween.  An American Indian leader and outspoken opponent of the Washington Redskins' team name reportedly dressed up in blackface for Halloween.  Terry Rambler, chairman of the San Carlos Apache Tribe in Arizona, posted a Facebook picture of himself as Jamaican reggae star Bob Marley, complete with a dreadlocks wig and blackface makeup, the New York Post reported.

Apache leader who criticized Redskins is sorry for Halloween blackface costume.  Two years ago, San Carlos Apache chairman Terry Rambler was at the White House, meeting with President Barack Obama to discuss the "racially offensive" name of the Washington Redskins.  Last week, Rambler was in blackface.  On Sunday [11/1/2015], the Arizona tribe leader posted a Facebook photo of himself dressed as Bob Marley for Halloween, complete with fake dreadlocks and blackface makeup.  The picture has caused outrage, especially given Rambler's own public protests against racism towards Native Americans.

Video Proof: CNN's Attack On Ben Carson's Biography Is Racially-Motivated.  CNN's recent and troubling history of anti-black bias is well documented.  The left-wing network has been sued for racial bias, is infamous for ginning up violence in predominantly black neighborhoods, and has faced scrutiny by the National Association of Black Journalists for its treatment of black staffers.  It is no surprise, then, to discover that CNN is currently on a racially-motivated rampage to undermine Ben Carson's biography, and by extension, his presidential ambitions.

'Colored Person' Association president calls Ben Carson 'safe negro'.  I thought terms like "colored people" and "negro" were considered derogatory to blacks.  And yet we still have organizations called The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and the United Negro College Fund.  The Brooklyn head of the NAACP in an interview referred to Ben Carson as a "Safe Negro."  After an uproar, she claimed she was referring to what other people thought of Carson, though she still affirmed that she thought he was "safe" for Republican voters.

Why Are Asian-Americans Such Loyal Democrats?  In just two decades, Asian-American support for the Democratic presidential candidate more than doubled, from the 31 percent Bill Clinton got in 1992 to the 73 percent cast for President Obama in 2012, according to exit polls.  This shift followed the collapse of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War, developments that freed anti-Communist Asian immigrants — those with roots in China or Korea, for example — from single-issue ideological concerns that had previously drawn them to the Republican Party.  Today, Asian-Americans, a population of 17.2 million, are among the fastest growing constituencies of the Democratic Party.

'Dangerous Token Negro': DC Media's Destruction Of Carson Is Just getting Started.  Let me be very, very clear about one thing:  The DC Media cannot allow Dr. Ben Carson to become President of the United States.  And if the DC Media has to put on white robes, burn crosses, grab firehoses, and sic German Shepherds on Carson, they will.  In fact, they already have.  Not literally, but the tactics and the goals are exactly the same:  By any means necessary, destroy the free-thinking black man who threatens our power.

Welfare Mom Has 52 Kids/Grand-kids: A victim of Leftist Deceptions, Promises and Betrayals.  Barbara's life could have been so much more.  Barbara's life is the legacy of loyalty to Democrats.  For fifty years Democrats have been promising blacks better lives from government dependency and voting Democrat.  And yet, today rather than fewer Barbaras, in Baltimore and other cities controlled by Democrats, there are more Barbaras than ever.  Over 70 percent of black kids grow up in fatherless, government dependent households which breeds poverty, incarceration, black on black crime, epidemic school dropouts and substance abuse.

Welfare and race
Welfare and Race.  A single graphic explains why it is a waste of time for the GOP to try to challenge Democrat hegemony among blacks and Hispanics.


African Americans keep waiting for 'better' from Emanuel.  Black Chicago must be suffering from a bad case of buyer's remorse.  Mayor Rahm Emanuel was re-elected on April 7 in a hard-fought runoff election.  African-American voters bought in and elected a mayor who promised to "do better" for Chicago.  Black voters made the difference then and in 2011, when Emanuel was first elected on the strength of his high-powered résumé and his close ties to Barack Obama, America's first black president.

Obama's Tragic Legacy for Black Americans.  At the urging of labor unions, President Obama has pushed for higher minimum wages that price a disproportionate percentage of blacks out of the labor force.  At the urging of teachers unions, he has fought voucher programs that give ghetto children access to better schools.  Both policies have a lengthy track record of keeping millions of blacks ill-educated and unemployed.

Mike Barnicle: Ben Carson a 'Political Nut-Boy'.  For nearly three decades, Ben Carson was the head of pediatric neurosurgery at one of the world's best hospitals.  To MSNBC panelist Mike Barnicle, however, Carson is a "political nut-boy" who reminds him of a patient at a certain type of hospital.

Virginia's first black governor says Obama ignored blacks.  L. Douglas Wilder, in his new autobiography Son of Virginia, expressed deep disappointment with America's first black president, calling him "aloof" and "tone deaf" to blacks' needs, leaving African-Americans to ask, "When is our time coming?"  Wilder, governor from 2005-09, and who served twice as mayor of Richmond, wrote, "This was not the 'hope and change' president we had expected."

Black Lives and the Death of a Culture.  Do black lives matter?  You wouldn't know it by looking at the governmental policies that have been in place since the Civil Rights Movement.  No policy since then has done anything but make black lives worse.  Affirmative Action, Aid to Dependent Children, food stamps, welfare.  Okay.  These programs have allowed for the accumulation of TVs and cars and microwaves and AC.  But those things don't give a person purpose or a sense of self-worth, a hope for the future.  Are these young people angry because white cops are mowing them down willy-nilly? No — because that isn't happening.  Are they starving?  No — EBT cards allow them the same diet the rest of have and they don't even have to work.  But there's the rub.  Work provides much more than a living.  Work can provide a goal, a hope, a possibility.  You can feed a body with food, but a soul requires a more esoteric diet.  It requires actual achievement, actual struggle to arrive at that success.  It requires self-understanding and respect.  It requires reason — things have to make sense.  It requires truth.  These angry young people have had none of that.

Reality Therapy for Liberals.  Look at what has happened to our black urban communities since the father was made irrelevant by Lyndon Johnson's Great Society policies.  Here we are now, nearly a half century later and the ghettos are worse than ever, over 70% of black mothers are single moms, in New York City 69% of black pregnancies end in abortion.  High school graduation for blacks is only 69%.  Unemployment especially amongst young black males peaked in 2009 at 49%, drug use and incarceration rates are off the charts.  Obviously, a society cannot function without strong families headed by strong fathers; it takes no leap of faith to reach that conclusion.  Yet people still contend that family is merely a human construct and can be redefined willy-nilly.

#BlackLivesMatter's agenda is costing black lives.  I've seen this movie before.  And for the last 25 years, I thought I'd never have to watch it again.  But now it's playing, not in theaters, but all over mainstream media, with something like rave reviews from the president and his administration.  The theme of the movie is that there is an epidemic of racist white policemen, gunning down innocent black people.  The movie's message, implicit but unambiguous, is that the police must be restrained from vigorous enforcement of the law.  That was the message of the Black Power movement half a century ago, and it is the message of the #BlackLivesMatter movement today.

How Democrats Created America's Social Caste System.  For over two hundred years Democrats have worked to create and maintain a low caste based upon race.  For example, it was Democrats who wanted to maintain the South's system of race-based labor exploitation known as slavery.  In the 1820s Democrats who were anxious to maintain the low caste refused to follow federal laws that banned the existence of this caste in new states.  America's Civil War was not started by the North to abolish slavery.  Rather, it was started by the South in order to preserve slavery. [...] To this day, many blacks and Hispanics do not realize that the poverty and racial segregation they endure has been created by Democrats.  Democrats preach equality but seek to make the social castes unequal.  This is done to maintain their political power and control over the nation.

Surprise: Murder Rates Rise In Mostly Democratic Party Run Cities.  One has to ask why Liberals are not only not concerned by the high violent crime rates within the Black community, but why they seemingly defend Blacks killing each other off [and why] they deflect attention away from this.  Do they just not care?  One can even stretch and think that Liberals want Blacks to kill each other off.  They've obtained a situation where Blacks live in high concentrations in liberal cities, and vote Democratic Party at a rate that would make 3rd world dictators happy.  All while Democratic Party policies create highly negative living conditions and high rates of violent crime.

The left's deranged attack on Clarence Thomas.  Black lives matter — unless, apparently, you're Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.  The left is renewing its venomous, racist attacks on Thomas in the aftermath of his dissent in the Supreme Court's 6-3 ruling in favor of gay marriage.  Actor George Takei smeared Thomas as a "clown in blackface."  The Huffington Post called his dissent "beyond ridiculous" and tarred him as a hypocrite for opposing a court-created "right" to gay marriage:  "Clarence Thomas is married to a white woman — something that would be illegal today, if it weren't for the Supreme Court's historic Loving v. Virginia ruling."  As if his personal life is fair game.

The Democrats: Too Old and Too White?  [Scroll down]  For Democratic progressives, Hawaiian Barack Obama could not be of mixed ancestry and decidedly middle class, but simply "black" or "African American" — as if he had shared the Jim Crow experience of Clarence Thomas.  Nor was there any allowance that race itself had become hard to sort into neat categories in a nation of immigration, intermarriage, and assimilation, in which millions of Americans were one-half this and one-quarter that.  Rachel Dolezal and Shaun King proved that well enough by successfully constructing themselves as white for quite a long time.  Liberals had reversed the vision of Martin Luther King Jr.:  The color of our skin, not the content of our character, is what matters.

Generations of Stolen Black Dreams.  Black unemployment, particularly under Obama, is extremely high.  While many blacks have achieved their American dream, many have not.  That is not white America's fault.  Behavioral issues are laying waste to the black community.  Over 70% fatherless households and 70% school dropouts leads to gangs, drugs, blacks murdering blacks and incarceration; all resulting in poverty.  So what is Obama's solution to fixing these problems plaguing blacks?  He lets drug dealers who prey on urban youths out of jail, claiming their crime is non-violent.  He has his DOJ bully police across America to back off urban thugs.  Obama minion Baltimore mayor said, "Let them loot.  It's only property."  Violent crime is up big-time in Chicago, New York and Baltimore.

Marco Rubio: The Newest Member of Black Lives Matter.  Every politician has a go-to guy for black issues:  A black person to keep it real with the latest information from the streets about riots, rampage and rap.  Senator Corey Booker's guy is named T-Bone.  Booker met T-Bone — a drug dealer — when Booker moved into The Ghetto of Newark during his second year of Yale Law School.  Booker started telling stories about T-Bone during his unsuccessful race for mayor of Newark in 2002. [...] One problem:  T-Bone was a dream.  A fairy tale.  A lie.

Hillary Clinton: Let's Be Honest, Black Men In Hoodies Are Scary.  Add this one to the "imagine if she were a Republican" files:  old white lady expresses fear of young black men, political funeral details to come.  During a campaign speech on Thursday [7/23/2015], Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton touched on race, saying that even "open-minded white people" are sometimes afraid of hoodie-wearing black people:  [Video clip]

Under Obama, Blacks Are Worse Off — Far Worse.  Ninety-five percent of black voters in 2008 voted for then-Sen. Barack Obama.  Surely a "progressive" black president would care about, empathize with and understand black America in a way no other president ever has or could, right? [...] After six years, the report card is in.  The grades are not pretty.  By every key economic measurement, blacks are worse off under Obama.  In some cases, far worse off.  What about poverty?  In 2009, when Obama took office, the black poverty rate was 25.8 percent.  As of 2014, according to Pew Research Center, the black poverty rate was 27.2 percent.  What about income?  CNNMoney says, "Minority households' median income fell 9 percent between 2010 and 2013, compared to a drop of only 1 percent for whites."

Alveda King to Congressional Black Caucus: Lead Investigations of Planned Parenthood.  Dear Congressional Black Caucus, I am writing to you today because my heart is heavy over the deafening silence coming from you regarding a recent video that has gone viral exposing Planned Parenthood's practice of harvesting and selling aborted babies' body parts.  If they or anyone else had been exposed for harvesting and selling animal body parts, there would be such an outrage from the left and right.  "Save the whales!  Save the dolphins!  Save the doggies and cats!" people would declare.  But for some reason it seems to be okay to chop up the unborn babies and harvest their body parts.

If the Confederate flag offends you, ask who designed it.  After alleged mass murderer Dylann Roof was captured, news media discovered a photo of him with the Confederate battle flag.  Somehow, this flag has become an issue that more than one Democratic spokesperson has asserted will become a problem for Republicans in the 2016 election.  How can that be? [...] This flag was designed by Democrats.  Democrats whipped slaves under this flag.  After the Confederacy was defeated, Democrat Nathan Bedford Forrest founded the Ku Klux Klan, which continued to carry the Confederate battle flag during a reign of terror against blacks and Republicans.  The Confederate battle flag was raised on the grounds of the state house in South Carolina by a Democratic governor.  A Republican governor ordered it taken down.  Why would this be a problem for Republicans?

Thanks to Obama, Racial Division Will Never End.  Obama is the president of the United States, yet he persists on dividing us, not uniting us.  It is the goal of the Left to break us all down into groups, so that you can be "treated fairly" by your benevolent government.  Let's say you are black.  No matter what your background, experience, family life, likes, dislikes, work ethic, whether you are a professional or unemployed, you are going to be treated as if the government has to fix things for you, even if you don't want them "fixed" — and it's all for your own good.

For Planned Parenthood Black Livers Matter.  If you have ever witnessed one of those "spontaneous" pro-abortion demonstrations held in Washington whenever Congress contemplates curtailing taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood, you may have noticed that there was something missing — African-American demonstrators.  This is odd, considering that black women are far more likely to have abortions than are their Caucasian counterparts.  And, examined in light of the now infamous video of a white Planned Parenthood official discussing how to crush a baby without damaging marketable livers and other organs, it is particularly ominous.  Why?  Because the terminated baby will probably have been black, and that is no coincidence

America, the Beautiful.  As a black man in my sixties, yes, I have encountered racism.  But for the most part, whites and America have been extremely good to me.  When I was a boy in the hood of Baltimore, several white politicians awarded me scholarships to pursue my dream of becoming a graphic artist.  During and after college several so-called "evil white men" according to a NY Times article, employed me, treated me well, and furthered my career.  And yet, when I say I love my country and am proud to be an American, Leftists/Democrats look at me cross-eyed, accuse me of disloyalty to my race.  I am supposed to be mad, feel resentful and victimized.  Sorry, but I can't go there, embracing hate and a victim mindset.

Donald Trump's Criminal Illegal Immigrants.  [Scroll down]  The only way illegal immigrants can ever obtain good jobs is by obtaining a good education, yet Democrats and their liberal enablers intentionally have successfully forced, through Federal regulation, all product labels, election ballots, and so on be printed in Spanish as well as English.  This action permanently disables illegal immigrants and their children from ever obtaining good paying, English speaking, jobs.  The progressives want them to be low paid, just as they've always wanted black voters to be low paid.  So here we have proof that progressives don't want to pay illegal immigrants much money for their menial work.  This is the exact attitude that they claim capitalists have toward the masses of workers.

Fiddling Away the Future.  Forty-three years ago, there were roughly 1,500 black elected officials nationwide.  According to the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, by 2011 there were roughly 10,500 black elected officials, including a black president.  But what were the fruits?  By most any measure, the problems are worse.  There is the greatest black poverty, poorest education, highest crime and greatest family instability in cities such as:  Detroit, St. Louis, Oakland, Calif., Memphis, Tenn., Birmingham, Ala., Atlanta, Baltimore, Cleveland, Philadelphia and Buffalo, N.Y.  The most common characteristic of these predominantly black cities is that, for decades, all of them have been run by Democratic and presumably liberal administrations.  What's more is that in most of these cities, blacks have been mayors, chiefs of police, school superintendents and principals and have dominated city councils.

The White Privilege Lie.  Of all the invectives launched against the United States by the resurgent American Left, the charge that in America, White Privilege reigns supreme is the most insidious and culturally ruinous.  Its intent is unambiguous:  leftists perpetuate the White Privilege lie to smear America and its institutions as inherently racist, and therefore unworthy of adulation and in need of fundamental socioeconomic transformation.  The ultimate power of the White Privilege calumny lies in its capacity to impugn the virtue of American patriotism and the idea of American exceptionalism.

The Editor says...
Liberals keep talking about white privilege, as if it's a bad thing.  But logically, if being white is a privilege, it must be superior to the alternatives.  Anyone who gives a moment's thought to their logic can see that "white privilege" is a problem that doesn't exist.

Why it's Republicans, not Democrats, who really offer African-Americans hope for a better life.  Fifty years ago, Republicans and Democrats came together to enshrine in law the principle that all of us, regardless of race, color, or national origin, are created equal.  Because of that, today America is a better, more tolerant and more welcoming place than it has ever been.  So why is it that so many black families still feel left behind?  A quarter of African-Americans live below the poverty line, even with federal programs like food stamps and housing subsidies, and the supplemental poverty rate for African-Americans is nearly double the rate for other Americans.

Progressive Mass Hysteria.  [Scroll down]  In fact, no president of the 20th century disliked blacks in general and integration in particular as much as the Southern segregationist Woodrow Wilson, although he adroitly cloaked his racial hatred with a thin veneer of liberal academic respectability as president of Princeton University and author of several progressive tracts.  The writings and speeches of Margaret Sanger, founder of what evolved into Planned Parenthood, trumped the biases of Wilson.  Her progressive version of eugenics fueled much of her family-planning agenda.  She saw reproductive rights as inseparable from discouraging the supposedly less gifted (in her view, mostly non-whites) from having lots of children.

Will Democrats Apologize for Slavery and Segregation?  Dear Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz: [...] In 1860 your platform said:  "Resolved, That the Democratic party will abide by the decision of the Supreme Court of the United States upon these questions of Constitutional law."  This was, in fact, an endorsement of the infamous Dred Scott decision by the Court, a decision which legal scholars say was designed to write slavery into the Constitution.  And your party approved of it.  As the Civil War was ending your party opposed the passage of the Thirteenth Amendment — which ended slavery. [...] For decades your party gave free rein to the Klan and its rabid, racist violence.  In 1924 the Klan ran your Democratic Convention in New York's Madison Square Garden, known to history as the "Klan bake" convention.  Time and time and time again your party selected Klan members to represent it in the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House as well as state governorships and all manner of local officials.

Will Dems apologize?  In an open letter to DNC Chairman Debbie Blabbermouth Schultz, Jeffrey Lord provides a readout of the tangled history of the Democratic Party with slavery, segregation, lynching, and the Ku Klux Klan.  Lord draws on the Democratic Party platforms of 1840, 1844, 1856 and 1860.  He adds that, as the Civil War drew to a close, the Democrats opposed the passage of the Thirteenth Amendment (ending slavery), and proceeded afterwards also to oppose the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments.  Lord has more, all in the spirit of the moment; Lord calls on Schultz to apologize on behalf of the party.

The Top Five Most Racist Presidents.  [#3]  Franklin Delano Roosevelt:  FDR spoke at the 1924 Democrat National Convention, also known as the "Klanbake" for the "heavy representation of Ku Klux Klan-friendly delegates," as reported at the Wall Street Journal.  According to Digital History, after the Klanbake, "some 20,000 Klan supporters wearing white hoods and robes held a picnic in New Jersey... "  Roosevelt appointed "confidant" James Byrnes to the Supreme Court, who was so powerful that he was known as the "assistant president on the home front" and who "believed in racial segregation... and worked to defeat anti-lynching bills introduced in Congress."  Despite the fact that Byrnes was not elected by the people, FDR "assigned Byrnes more powers than ever held by a public official."  Even worse, FDR appointed prominent Ku Klux Klan member Hugo Black to the Supreme Court.

The History of the Racist Democrat Party.  Mark Levin spent much of his first hour last night laying out the evil 'missing history' of the racist Democratic Party, digging in deeper than most to reveal things that many just don't know.  [Audio clip.]

The Monuments to the Framers of The Southern Manifesto of 1956.  If there is no honor in the memories evoked by the Confederate flag, then there is even less to be found in the statues depicting those prominent politicians who fought for segregation well into the 20th century.

The Progressive Timeline.  Race is the most obvious big social issue which has been totally controlled by Progressives.  Since the 1950's, the Left has had a free hand in trying to[ ]make the races get along.  They even control the definition of "getting along."  Despite this, the last few years has been a non-stop campaign to "fix" race, as well as a cynical effort to cause a race war.  After the church shooting, every member of the Cult was out in the streets claiming nothing has changed since the last time a white guy killed a bunch of black people, which was fifty years ago.  Normal people would look at the near total absence of white on black crime in the South, relative to the bad old days, as an amazing development.  To the Left, this has not happened and it is still 1955.

Another Racist To Be Evicted from American History: Woodrow Wilson.  If our public life is going to be all race all the time, with a view toward expunging all traces of racists from honored positions in American history, then Woodrow Wilson is a prime candidate for the memory hole.  At InstaPundit, Randy Barnett sets out Wilson's record as a racist in detail.  Wilson re-segregated federal agencies that had been integrated during Reconstruction.  W.E.B. DuBois called Wilson's segregationist and discriminatory policies the "gravest attack on the liberties" of African Americans since Emancipation.  Booker T. Washington visited D.C. during Wilson's first term and reported, "I have never seen the colored people so discouraged and bitter as they are at the present time."  Wilson was an unequivocal and outspoken supporter of segregation.  "Segregation is not humiliating but a benefit, and ought to be so regarded by you gentlemen," he told African-Americans.

The Last Thing the Left Wants is Racial Healing.  While the media was all abuzz over Obama using the "n" word, I was outraged over him accusing my country of being a nation filled with racists.  Folks, our president actually said racism is in our DNA and is passed on from generation to generation.  Dude, you're a black man whom white folks — because blacks are only 12% of the population — made leader of the free world two times.  Stop it with the "blacks are victims" nonsense.  Millennial blacks have never or rarely experience bona-fide racism.  So why are Obama and his fellow Leftists hell-bent on instilling racial paranoia and resentment against whites in millennial blacks?  The answer is simple:  this is how Democrats keep their monopoly of the black vote.  Instill in blacks that America is eternally racist and voting for Democrats is the only way to keep the haters which are the majority at bay.

When Erasing Symbols of Slavery, Don't Forget the Democratic Party.  [Scroll down]  Andrew Jackson, Martin Van Buren (anti-abolitionist), James K. Polk (slavery compromiser), and Stephen A. Douglas (slavery fence-sitter) founded the current Democratic Party.  The abolitionists wandered in the wilderness for a while, mixing with Whigs, and finally coalescing into the Republican Party in 1854, with abolition as its singular purpose.  During the first half of the 1800's, slavery was a contentious and persistent issue.  Many slave owners and Democrats viewed slavery as a necessary evil, and abolition as unnecessary contention.  Thomas Jefferson advocated for mass emancipation and deportation, for he viewed the black race as too childish, and based on the 1791 Haiti rebellion, unable to handle the anger engendered by their enslavement.  Another common view held that the black race was simply unable to care for itself, and thus slaves were better off under the care of their masters, and that slavery only needed greater compassion, a view still held by the Democratic Party to this day.  Why do you think Democrats promote government assistance programs for African Americans?

Why Are We Not Removing All Things Related To Robert "KKK" Byrd?  Should we remove George Washington and Thomas Jefferson from Mount Rushmore?  How about all statues, streets, monuments, and references to the two?  Despite being opposed to slavery, they had been slave owners at one time.  Better yet, why are we not calling for the removal of all things named after Robert "KKK" Byrd (Democrat), as well as any and all statues?  The man was an actual high ranking member of the KKK. [...] Byrd made many racist pronouncements.  He was a virulent racist.  Let's remove all references to him.

90% of the Racism in America Comes from the Democratic Party and the Left.  Ninety percent of the racism in America today comes from the Democratic Party and the Left.  They live off it and exploit it.  It is unconscionable to the degree they do this, ruining the lives and futures of the very people they say they are helping in the process.  I am uniquely positioned to say this because I spent most of my life on the Left and was a civil rights worker in the South in my early twenties.  I was also, to my everlasting regret, a donor to the Black Panther Party in the seventies.  So I have seen this personally from both sides and my conclusion is inescapable.  The Left is far, far worse.  They are obsessed with race in a manner that does not allow them to see straight.  Further, they project racism onto others continually, exacerbating situations, which in most instances weren't even there in the first place.  From Al Sharpton to Hillary Clinton, they all do it.  Barack Obama is one of the worst offenders in this regard.

The Media's Despicable, Racist Attack on Bobby Jindal.  The defining moment of the blatantly racist attacks against Republican Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal will always be the MSNBC segment where guest Arsalan Iftikhar claimed Jindal's criticism of radical Islam was him "trying to scrub some of the brown off of his skin."  Those comments were so bad MSNBC was forced to apologize and promise never to have Iftikhar on again.  Before that of course, there was Vox.com's Matt Yglesias questioning whether people thought Jindal was smart because of his race.

Black Chamber of Commerce: EPA Clean Air Plan Will Increase Black Poverty 23%, Strip 7,000,000 Black Jobs.  A study commissioned by the National Black Chamber of Commerce, which represents 2.1 million black-owned businesses in the United States, found that the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Clean Power Plan would increase black poverty by 23 percent and cause the loss of 7 million jobs for black Americans by 2035.  The study also found that the EPA' plan would increase Hispanic poverty by 26 percent and cause the loss of 12 million jobs for Hispanic Americans by 2035.

Black Chamber of Commerce: EPA Clean Air Plan Will Increase Black Poverty 23%, Strip 7,000,000 Black Jobs.  A study commissioned by the National Black Chamber of Commerce, which represents 2.1 million black-owned businesses in the United States, found that the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Clean Power Plan would increase black poverty by 23 percent and cause the loss of 7 million jobs for black Americans by 2035.  The study also found that the EPA' plan would increase Hispanic poverty by 26 percent and cause the loss of 12 million jobs for Hispanic Americans by 2035.

Fairness in Cleansing.  To begin, I want to know when the countless bridges, schools, highways and buildings named for Robert Byrd will be changed to that of someone who was NOT an Exalted Cyclops of the KKK?  When will portraits of him be removed from all Federal and State buildings?  When will his statue in West Virginia's Capitol Rotunda be pulled down? [...] While we're at it, let's make certain Harry Reid's legacy faces a similar fate for his comments that candidate Obama could be successful thanks, in part, to his "light-skinned" appearance and speaking patterns "... with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one."

Hillary arrives by private jet for Ferguson-area speech on race relations and Charleston 'terrorism'.  Hillary Clinton arrived in a private jet on Tuesday [6/23/2015] to talk race relations at a church whose rooftops can see Ferguson, Missouri.  And she left some in St. Louis's urban black community feeling cold, coming to town for a campaign speech nearly a year after the riot-inducing shooting death of Michael Brown.

Dylann Roof, Southern Democrat Throwback.  It turns out the suspect, Dylann Roof, is an ideological amalgam of old-line Southern segregationist Democrat KKK white supremacy combined with 21st century emo-progressive-anarchist sensibilities.  Top that off with a horrendous androgynous emo bowl cut and a drug arrest, and you've got a poster child for new age leftist counter-culture abomination.  The guy is a product of the Democrat Party and contemporary moody emo-oriented pop-cultural leftism.

Hillary Clinton fights post-Obama apathy in bid to energize South Carolina blacks.  She has mastered the art of affecting a folksy twang when speaking to Southern crowds and her husband once boasted that he was the first black president, but Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton has a long way to go to win over black voters crucial to victory in South Carolina's early primary.  Mrs. Clinton, who on Wednesday will make her second visit to the Palmetto State, moved early and forcefully to shore up support of black voters, but that Democratic bloc has yet to coalesce behind her.  That includes young blacks who say they have lost faith in politics after their experience with President Obama.

Black Chicago Pastor: 'Democrats Have Taken Advantage of Our Community'.  Corey Brooks, pastor of New Beginnings Church on the infamous south side of Chicago, wants Republican presidential candidates to speak to his congregation, because being black doesn't mean you have to be a member of the Democrat Party — which he says has failed to help his community.

Hillary Sweeps Left in Houston, Sells Early Voting as Civil Rights Issue.  Hillary Clinton ran one of the most boring, tired football plays in Houston this week — Wishbone Sweep Left.  We've seen it over and over again:  tell Democrats that Republicans are out to bring back Jim Crow, energize a moribund, racially motivated base by scaring them into thinking the Voting Rights Act has vanished, and claim that not having a month-long election day means blacks are being targeted for vote "suppression."  The play is tired, familiar, and goes nowhere.

Hillary goes ugly early with racism claims.  Down in Texas for a campaign event aimed at restoring her relationship with black Democrats who rejected her 2008 candidacy, Clinton said that laws requiring voters to show identification at polls were part of "a sweeping effort to disempower and disenfranchise people of color, poor people and young people from one end of our country to the other."  Note the language here.  It's not a misguided effort with an unfortunate result, it is a deliberate effort to prevent minorities from voting.  That's not just racist, that's evil.

Black Chicago Pastor: Dems 'Failing' Us.  It is difficult to imagine a less likely GOP presidential campaign stop than O Block.  After all, it's the most dangerous stretch of Martin Luther King Jr. Drive in Chicago and one of the toughest territories in the city.  But if Republicans stand a chance of chipping away at Democrats' dominance over the black vote in this city and elsewhere, it might be something to consider.

Hillary Clinton Cannot Afford to Lose Black Voters.  Barack Obama didn't need to do much — almost anything — to win record turnout from African-American voters.  Hillary Clinton will need to pull out all the stops to score just a fraction of that support.  An exaggeration?  Black political leaders don't think so.

The War against Black Children.  There is a statistic out there that almost half the adults in Detroit are functionally illiterate.  They can't fill out job applications.  They can't read the instructions on a pill bottle.  So when we talk about a war against black children, let's not think first about guns.  Think about the weapon that is doing the most damage.  That would be our public schools.  You cannot have functionality illiterate children at the high school level unless the school system systematically evades teaching those children to read at the elementary school level.  That's exactly what is happening in cities across America.

What is wrong with Democrats?  Why do Democrats embrace Al Sharpton, an anti-white anti-Semite, liar, con man hustler who extorts millions from corporations and who is a habitual tax cheat?  He has received a lot of attention lately, not because of his carnivalesque talk show on MSNBC that few watch, but because Barack Obama has appointed and anointed him as his point man on race.  The riots in Ferguson and Baltimore and the tragic death of Eric Garner are fuel for Al Sharpton (he may not need much food in the wake of his bariatric surgery but he needs riots and mayhem — and when they aren't there, he creates them).  But he has been welcomed by Democrats for many years.

Univision keeping the lid on Democrats' coalition of victims.  One key to the future viability of the Democratic Party is suppressing the serious conflicts of interest between its black and Hispanic constituents.  The influx of 12 to 16 million mostly low-skilled labor force entrants across the southern border has driven down wages and employment opportunities for blacks.  The single most effective means to raising incomes for those who sell low-skill labor would be to close the border and repatriate those who violated our laws in coming here.  But Democrats need the votes of both blacks and Hispanics to sustain their coalition of purported victims, those needing to appropriate the income earned by others through welfare and redistribution programs in order to enjoy what they consider an acceptable lifestyle.  So any consciousness among blacks that the influx of Hispanics is costing them opportunities must be suppressed.

The Big Tent Party Collapses.  While the Democratic Party has moved toward leftist purity in which Hillary Clinton's policy positions are virtually indistinguishable from socialist Bernie Sanders', the Republican Party has become to political positions what COEXIST bumper stickers are to religion — an embrace of all and, thereby, a perversion of all.  The media enjoy suggesting that the Republican Party has never been more right-wing, but the opposite is true:  the Republican Party has never been more heterogeneous, and the Democratic Party has never been more radically homogenous.

Can you guess when it's okay for whites to use the n-word?  [Scroll down]  You see, liberals like Doctor Seuss.  And if liberals like someone, any kind of behavior is acceptable.  If a politician was a former leader of the Ku Klux Klan, it's okay...if he was a liberal.  See Robert Byrd.  If another politician says Obama can be successful because he's a light-skinned black and doesn't speak with a "negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one," that's okay... if it's a liberal like Harry Reid.  If someone says that Obama is the first Black candidate who is "bright and clean-cut," that is okay... as long as he's a liberal like Joe Biden.

Black Columnist Brands Dr. Ben Carson as 'a Court Jester, a Minstrel Show'.  Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Cynthia Tucker criticized Dr. Ben Carson for his conservative political and religious views, referring to the retired pediatric neurosurgeon and 2016 presidential candidate as "the GOP's latest black mascot, a court jester, a minstrel show."  Carson, who was raised in a poor, single-parent household in inner-city Detroit, became the director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland at age 33.  He made medical history when he became the first surgeon to successfully separate conjoined twins attached at the head. [...] Claiming to speak for the black community, Tucker said that Carson's non-politically correct views on homosexuality, evolution and religion threaten to eclipse his many accomplishments, and that because of his conservative views he "stands to lose his place as one of the nation's most admired men."

The Halperin-Cruz teaching moment.  There is more to this story than a simple case of media gotcha.  It's one thing to ask a candidate what newspapers she reads, or whether he can identify the president of Mexico.  It's quite another to set out to show that the candidate isn't who he says he is because he doesn't meet your subjective standard for determining who's who and what's what.  Actually, as should be obvious to anyone who has watched the clip, this was no interview.  It was an interrogation.  Journalists conduct interviews to obtain information.  That's not what Halperin did here.  He was on the attack, quizzing Cruz about his Cuban-ness to make the 2016 Republican presidential hopeful look like a phony.

Halperin Interview Of Ted Cruz Shows Left's Plantation Attitude Toward Latinos.  In a classic gotcha interview with a GOP candidate, Bloomberg big shot Mark Halperin sought to discredit Ted Cruz as a "real" Latino with patronizing questions.  It goes to show the proprietary sense that the left has toward minorities.

Time for the Welfare State to Stand Trial.  As of 1950, "only 9% of black families with children were headed by a single parent."  Between 1940 and 1960, "the black poverty rate had been cut in half." [...] By 2012, the black illegitimacy rate was at 73%, starkly high in contrast to other demographic segments.  And the moral decay that came with this trend is not obscure.  "According to the National Fatherhood Initiative, 60% of rapists, 72% of adolescent murderers, and 70% of long-term prison inmates are men who grew up in fatherless homes."  In light of these facts, these statistics may be less surprising:  In 2010, blacks (approximately 13% of the population) accounted for 48.7% of all arrests for homicide, 31.8% of all arrests for forcible rape, 33.5% for aggravated assault, and 55% of arrests for robbery.  It was by design that the social structure provided by government supplanted the social structure of the family.

Po-Po and the Missing Papas.  The rage of Baltimore's ghetto boys against cops is not due to an epidemic of police killing black men.  That's a big lie of the left wing.  It is mainly caused by brainwashing black youth to hate the only effective discipline they have had in their lives.  Subjecting ghetto youth to any discipline is a threat to the idea that they cannot be responsible citizens.  Law enforcement in the ghetto is a threat to the creed of victimization, which wealthy, privileged black leaders use to subjugate and control people.

Liberals' petri dish laid bare in Baltimore.  All the mayhem unfolding in Baltimore is nothing short of an unspeakable American tragedy.  Laid bare are the failures of cradle-to-grave social policies held so dear by politicians in both parties, but embraced and celebrated most lustily by Democrats.  These self-proclaimed Robin Hoods and do-gooders have issued open and unashamed invitations to the most vulnerable in society to become completely dependent upon government for everything from food to cellphones to home heating oil.  Left in the wake is the utter annihilation of families and the destruction of cohesive neighborhoods.  Complete dependency comes at such a high and bitter cost.  All in return for what really amounts to a sad pittance of welfare payments.  It is a twisted mockery of the American dream.

Blacks, Hispanics reject Obama climate change agenda over concerns about poor.  The very same voters who helped put Barack Obama in the White House increasingly are turning against the president's climate change agenda, with influential black and Hispanic leaders warning that stiff regulations to limit carbon emissions will have a devastating effect on the poor and will further stifle economic opportunity for minorities.  Some of Mr. Obama's most ardent supporters say they simply cannot go along with the administration's increasingly ambitious program to combat global warming.  They argue that, contrary to the Environmental Protection Agency's claims, the carbon regulations will drive up utility bills for poor households and will stunt economic growth in low-income areas.

The Editor says...
Carbon dioxide is not carbon, for the same reason that water is not hydrogen.  If you're writing an article about the climate, and the subject is carbon dioxide, don't call it carbon

Blacks Lose Ground Under Obama.  This economy has left blacks with little to show for their loyalty to Obama and the Democrats.

Record High 12,202,000 Black Americans Not In Labor Force.  Anyone doubt for a second a white Republican president would under constant attack by the Dems for their "racist" economic policies against black Americans?

Mr. Noah and the Flood.  So-called liberals habitually tolerate black anti-Semitism.  Jesse "Hymietown" Jackson remains a revered figure in the Democratic party; Al "Bloodsuckers" Sharpton was inflicted upon the general viewing public, or at least a couple of hundred members of it, by MSNBC; progressives are happy to stand with vile anti-Semites such as Louis Farrakhan, and Democratic organizations are happy to host them.  So-called liberals tolerate black anti-Semitism because they believe in their hearts that blacks are their wards and that they cannot be expected to know any better.  If unfunny anti-Semitism of the Nation of Islam variety is to be indulged, what's an unkind joke or three?

Imagine the current state of black Americans under a Republican administration.  Imagine if the president were a Republican, and if during the second half of his second term, after having been elected both times with record turnout by blacks, the black unemployment rate remained stagnant at 11 percent while the black poverty rate hit a record high of 27 percent.  What would black politicians be saying about that Republican president?

150 Years Later, Democrats Are Still Fighting Efforts to End Slavery.  The Democratic Party is the Party of Slavery.  They are the party that decided to secede from the Union.  They are the party that started a Civil War over the right to treat people as property.  They are the party that, once their side lost the war, set up structures to keep American citizens from exercising their civil rights.  And now, 150 years after the Civil War, the Democratic Party is at it again.

The Left's Destruction of Inner-City Communities.  Progressives and Democrats control every major city of any size and every major inner city of any size in America, as you've heard me say before.  Everything's that's wrong with the inner cities of America, that policy can affect progressives, leftists, Democrats are responsible for.  They have monopoly control in all these cities:  Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia, St. Louis.  There's not a Republican in sight.  Progressive welfare policies destroyed the black family beginning in the 1960s.  Seventy-five percent of African American children were born to two parents at that time.  Now, 80 percent in the inner cities are born out of wedlock.  The absence of a father and authority figure in the home, often complicated when the mother works as well as raising her children, has produced a series of pathologies which we summarize as the underclass, which were predicted by Daniel Moynihan in 1965, of violence, drug abuse, and criminality.

The Democrats' War on Women and Blacks.  Barack Obama, the first black president, comes into office and black unemployment actually increases while, for the first time in years, relations between the races in our country are reported in a recent poll to be worse by both blacks and whites.  Something's wrong with that picture too.  Did Americans suddenly become more racist or is it something else — that something being the policies of the Democratic Party, encouraging division and then living off those same divisions like a parasitic animal?

A Marxist View of the Democrats' Entitlement Economy.  Karl Marx, considered the founding figure in the rise of communism, divided all persons into two classes:  the bourgeoisie and the proletariat. [...] Democrats create highly segregated communities whose boundaries are defined by racism so that they could represent minority neighborhoods in elections.  All racially segregated communities are under Democrat control and its residents suffer very high rates of poverty, single motherhood, crime, high dropout rates, high unemployment, zero economic growth, misery, and death.  And the solutions Democrats always put forth to correct these social ills are always more community programs and entitlements.  These programs only serve to expand their political control of the entitlementariat through dependency.  The benefit the Democrat bourgoisie gets is political power.  The racial segregation found in big cities is proof that the Democrat bourgeoisie creates and maintains the entitlementariat.  Recently illegal immigration has been used to create an Hispanic entitlementariat.

Why Do Democrats Hate Asian-Americans? Because They're Smart and Successful.  This piece appeared in the Los Angeles Times recently, and it deserves a lot more notice from conservatives than it's received so far.  It's not that it doesn't tell us things we didn't already know — it's that the Left is so blatant about its prejudices, and so determined to tear down any semblance of meritocracy regarding college admissions.  And, mostly, it reminds us that Asian-Americans need to recognize who their enemies are.

Sounds like someone is perpetuating harmful stereotypes.
Obama to Amnesty Beneficiaries: 'There's Going to Be a President Rodriguez Someday'.  Republicans should stop fighting amnesty, President Obama said on Thursday [2/26/2015], because one day a Hispanic will become president.  "Over the long term, this is going to get solved, because at some point there's going to be a President Rodriguez or there's going to be a President Chen," Obama told a Florida International University town hall audience, hosted by Telemundo and MSNBC.

Here's How Obama will be Remembered During Black History Month.  Unemployment among blacks rose 42 percent in Obama's first five years as president — worse than unemployment for whites and Hispanics and far worse than the 20 percent decrease in unemployment among black adults during Ronald Reagan's presidency.  Other statistics tell a similar story:  inflation-adjusted gross income is down for African-Americans, while slightly up for whites and Hispanics, and many African-American children remain trapped in failing schools and violent neighborhoods.

Manufacturing Outrage.  The most disgraceful use of this strategy has been the deliberate stoking of black rage against whites.  Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown became martyrs not perpetrators.  Al Sharpton was anointed healer-in-chief and Obama's point man on race (the arsonist becomes the fire department chief — such are the perversions Barack Obama has inflicted on America).  Barack Obama has fanned the flames by comments such as "racism is deeply rooted in American society" and his Attorney General Eric Holder has race-baited throughout his tenure, routinely claiming civil rights violations at the height of the strife triggered by the deaths of Martin and Brown — and routinely being frustrated by the facts.  Joe Biden told a black audience that "Republicans are "going to put y'all back in chains." [...] And so it has been throughout Obama's presidency.  He has never missed an opportunity to manufacture outrage.

Liberals Exploit Race & Gender.  The growth and impoverishment of the black underclass in cities governed for decades by Democrats is our greatest domestic tragedy.  Blaming it on mostly mythical white racism obscures the real causes, prevents solutions.  But if liberals acknowledged the progress that's been made, more blacks might wonder why all the "help" they've gotten from Democrats has done them so little good.  So they pretend every year is 1963.

Selma and LBJ.  Why exactly did Dr. King have to spend his life marching for civil rights?  Why in fact did Selma — the march, not the movie — have to happen in the first place?  The Selma march took place in 1965, after the Civil Rights bill of 1964 has been passed with the help of Republicans and signed into law by President Lyndon Johnson.  What the Selma marchers were about was voting rights.  The basic, all-American right to vote.  Of course, they already had the right to vote. [...] Not a single Democrat in the U.S. House of Representatives voted for the [15th] amendment.  Only eight Democrats in the Senate signed on.

Ronan Farrow's Awkwardly Condescending Exchange with Black Teen.  As we've written here many times before, Ronan Farrow's MSNBC show is something to behold: An awkward mess of obvious inexperience, nepotism, self-congratulatory sanctimony, and preening condescension. Today's [1/20/2015] edition of the program showcased the lattermost element.

15 Statistics That Destroy Liberal Narratives.  [#13] The more progressive the city, the worse a place it is to be poor and/or black.  The most pronounced economic inequality in the United States is not in some Republican redoubt in Texas but in San Francisco, an extraordinarily expensive city in which half of all black households make do with less than $25,000 a year.  Blacks in San Francisco are arrested on drug felonies at ten times their share of the general population.  At 6 percent of the population, they represent 40 percent of those arrested for homicides.  Whether you believe that that is the result of a racially biased criminal-justice system or the result of higher crime incidence related to socioeconomic conditions within black communities (or some combination of those factors) what is undeniable is that results for black Americans are far worse in our most progressive, Democrat-dominated cities than they are elsewhere.  The progressives have had the run of things for a generation in these cities, and the results are precisely what you see.

Liberals' Use of Black People.  Johns Hopkins University sociologist Andrew Cherlin told us: "It has yet to be shown that the absence of a father was directly responsible for any of the supposed deficiencies of broken homes. ... (The problem) is not the lack of male presence but the lack of male income."  The liberal vision is that fathers and husbands can be replaced by a welfare check.  Liberals desperately need blacks.  If the Democratic Party lost just 30 percent of the black vote, it would mean the end of the liberal agenda.

Black Conservative Son Educates Dad on Dems' Race Lies.  When presidential candidate Obama told Joe the Plumber that he planned to spread the wealth around, I knew he was nothing more than another socialist/progressive liberal who hated America as founded.  My 86-year-old black dad, on the other hand, is a lifelong Democrat.  He believed that Dems are for the little guy and that voting Republican is like voting for the KKK.  Despite being a God-fearing Christian preacher and pastor for over 50 years, Dad rejected evidence of Obama's anti-Christian leanings and voted for him solely because he is black.

Night Thoughts.  Now and then, I think back to why I rejected the Left, many years ago — when I was in college.  One of the reasons was, they always kept the racial pot boiling.  They would never let the pot cool off.  It seemed to me they did not want racial harmony.  They preferred strife, regarding it as more "authentic" or something.  Harmony was for Toms.

Do Black Lives Really Matter to Liberals?  Surprisingly, the same liberals who say they are concerned about the tiny percentage of blacks killed by police not only don't care about the mass elimination of blacks in the womb, but they in fact work constantly to protect those who slaughter blacks.  Eighty percent of abortion facilities are in minority neighborhoods, and blacks are three times as likely to kill their unborn child as whites are.  If black lives mattered to liberals, they'd be up in arms over this racist effort by organizations like Planned Parenthood.  Instead, the same folks who are ignoring the facts of the Ferguson case and imputing nonexistent racism to the Garner case tend to be strong and proud supporters of Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion organizations that target blacks.

Making Whitey Suffer.  From a complaint against two white police officers in the death of black men, these latest protests have morphed into a general and bitter repudiation of law enforcement, in general, and even of the capitalistic system in America, fueled by an irrational hatred for all businesses and industries, whether they employ a few people or millions.  It is doubtful that most protestors speak entirely from personal experience.  Their outrage echoes the far left litany and its deadly chokehold on American academia.  Even as demonstrations are applauded and encouraged, the aim of the left extends well (or ill) beyond empathy for a person's right to protest wrongs.  The ultimate goal is to destroy America as they see it and to substitute their "progressive" dream of utopia.

What evil lurks? The liberals know.  On a good day, about 80 percent of the content generated by left-leaning websites will be spent explaining why Republican positions on x, y and z are really expressions of their fear and loathing of non-white Americans, and how modern conservatives descend from John C. Calhoun, Jefferson Davis, the 1948 presidential campaign of Strom Thurmond and the Ku Klux Klan in its entirety in one straight and unbroken line.  MSNBC frets over the threat of the "dog whistle," by which one uses a commonplace phrase to send a sinister message to one's fellow bigots.  Only their network's anchors are apparently able to hear them.

Two Americas.  Why did it take until 100 years after the Civil War, until 1964, to pass a Civil Rights Act?  Because the Democratic Party would not take its boot off the neck of the black man until Martin Luther King made the black vote a political force.  Dedicated to being in power above all else, the Democrats had to make a U-turn on their race policy in the 1960s and join the Republicans in passing the Civil Rights Act because they realized that after the black vote was counted, they were not going to win any more national elections without it.  But there was a problem.  How was the Democratic Party going to overcome its deplorable record on race?  It was the party of slavery, segregation, lynching, and the Klan.

The True History of the Democratic Racist Party.  If only blacks knew of the true history of the Democratic Party.  "Black History Month" has been observed for 29 years, yet many blacks know little to nothing about the parties' respective roles in advancing or hindering the civil rights of blacks.  How many blacks know that following the Civil War, 23 blacks — 13 of them ex-slaves — were elected to Congress, all as Republicans?  The first black Democrat was not elected to Congress until 1935, from the state of Illinois.  The first black congressional Democrat from a Southern state was not elected until 1973.  Democrats, in 1854, passed the Kansas-Nebraska Act.  This overturned the Missouri Compromise and allowed for the importation of slaves into the territories.  Disgusted with the passage of this Act, free-soilers and anti-slavery members of the Whig and Democratic parties founded the Republican Party — not just to stop the spread of slavery, but to eventually abolish it. [...] In 1872 congressional investigations, Democrats admitted beginning the Klan as an effort to stop the spread of the Republican Party and to re-establish Democratic control in Southern states.

Call Ferguson Demonstrations What They Are: 'Obama Riots'.  The truth is that these riots are about so much more than Brown.  They are about the monstrous discontent over every aspect of life for so many people finally boiling over.  Mr. Obama ran and won two presidential campaigns on promises that he would heal these very people.  It was either stupidity or dishonesty to make such reckless promises to such vulnerable people just to win a couple of political elections.  The rioting lays bare the complete failure that is this presidency.  In the end, the only thing this president has accomplished is proving that the American people, for all their flaws, would elect a black president.  And then re-elect him despite a very disappointing first four years.

Obama's Amnesty and the Democrats' War on Black Americans.  Obama's proclamation of amnesty to illegal aliens is just the latest step in a long-running war conducted by Democrats against American citizens of African descent.  But, there are early signs that the African-American community is waking up to the decades-long, false claim by Democrats, heralded since the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as being the political party most concerned with the condition of Blacks.  Obama's dictatorial edict granting functional amnesty to millions of Hispanic illegal immigrants is not being well-received by some African-Americans who feel betrayed by the first Black President.

Obama's condescending stereotype of Mexicans.  It is unbelievable that the president of the United States would say something this elitist regarding the nation's largest minority group — and perhaps just as worse that it's gone virtually unreported. [...] Not all Mexicans do the type of work that Obama described, especially the ones who have been in the country for several generations and have gone to college.  This is just more of the same, sadly, to be expected from this arrogant president who jaunts around the world on luxury vacations, and whose favorite past time is golf, not charity and actually helping those less fortunate.

Juan Williams: 'Insulting to Black People' That White House Elevates Sharpton.  Fox's Eric Bolling went after Al Sharpton today for his tax issues that have somehow not stopped his White House invitations.  Juan Williams agreed and went so far as to say it's "insulting to black people" for the White House to be elevating Sharpton like that.  Williams suspected that the Obama White House just doesn't like Jesse Jackson and since Sharpton is the only big alternative, the White House just "anointed him as their official black leader," which people find insulting.

Giving Up On Black America.  [A]s shocked and depressed as I was over his election in 2008, it was Barack Obama's re-election in 2012 that helped to confirm my worst suspicions about black America.  In spite of lingering double-digit black unemployment, increasing black homelessness, food pantries with block long lines, inner-city schools that were still failing to meet even nominal standards of proficiency in reading, writing, and arithmetic, and headline news levels of racial strife, blacks still gave Barack Obama 93% of their vote.  This non sequitur helped me to face some important facts.

Dear Black People: The Democrats Are About To Break Up With You.  For decades, the black vote in the United States almost uniformly has gone to Democrats.  How's that working out?  Black unemployment is twice the national average, poverty rates are higher than before Democrats offered "help," and the education system fails a disproportionate number of black children.  That's what 50-plus years of blind voting loyalty to Democrats has earned.  And, thanks to those same Democrats and the nation's first black president, it's about to get a lot worse.  President Obama is set to legalize upwards of 5 million illegal aliens, with the dream of granting amnesty and citizenship to 6 million to 25 million more, based on estimates and chain migration.  These aren't Ph.D.s with seed capital ready to start tech companies; they're low- and no-skilled workers with limited English skills ready to take any job available, especially entry-level jobs.

Is This the End Game for Liberal Racism?  Every day in every way corporations are converting your tired and your poor into middle-class workers glad to serve the stranger, make the customer king, act friendly with everyone.  No wonder lefties hate corporations; they are teaching people how to break out of liberal tribalism and join the global middle class.

Explosive Charges: Black Democrat Alleges Racism in Lawsuit against Ohio Democratic Party.  An African American lawmaker — a Democrat — is charging the Ohio Democratic Party and chairman Chris Redfern with racism and defamation in a lawsuit filed this week, telling reporters there is a "plantation mentality" in the party that treats black lawmakers as a monolithic voting bloc.

Time for the GOP to stand up to the radical left's false racism claims.  One of the quickest arms in the radical liberal arsenal is to accuse Republicans of being racist.  It is just one more of their tactics to scare the people and offer themselves as saviors.  If the leftists couldn't scream "racism" they'd have little to say.  It's core their constituent building via victimhood strategy.  Screaming "racist" is a tactic designed to shut down debate and liberals need that since they can't win on the merits.  This is also why liberals save their most vicious attacks for minority members who dare to stray to the right.  Liberals know that if a small but critical mass were to venture off the house of cards they run would fold.

Liberal Racism: Hispanics Are Next.  Roughly ninety-five percent of racism in America today now either emanates from liberals or is generated by them.  The Democratic Party relies on racism because, without the perception of serious ongoing racism in our culture, the identity politics on which the party depends would disintegrate.  As presently constituted, they wouldn't win another national or statewide election.  This makes the Democratic Party by necessity a virtual racism-manufacturing machine.  The Al Sharptons and Jesse Jacksons are not anomalies.  They are the motor that drives the car.  Barack Obama could in no way be a post-racial president as promised, even if he wanted to be (doubtful).  He wouldn't have had a party anymore.  Do I exaggerate?  Actually it's worse.

Liberals Desperate To Keep Blacks On Their Plantation.  Democrats are beginning their racist attacks against Dr. Ben Carson.  The conservative neurosurgeon, who is black, recently changed his party affiliation from "Independent" to "Republican" and is about to air a 40-minute video in 22 states to introduce him to the American People.  The odds are pretty good he's going to run for President.  Of course, liberals are well aware of Carson — and they're terrified of him.  That's why he's repeatedly called an "Uncle Tom" or worse by liberals who can't stand that a black person — again — has ventured off the plantation and is able to think for [himself].

Employment Situation Improves in October — Except for African Americans.  The employment situation in October improved in every way for most Americans, except for African Americans, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).  The number of African Americans who were employed in the United States in October dropped by 41,000; and the number of African-Americans not participating in the labor force increased by 114,000.

How did it all go so wrong with Wendy Davis?  [Scroll down]  Too many strategists fall into the trap of treating demographic groups of people as if they were monolithic entries in pigeonholes which can be placed on a war room map and shoved back and forth.  Yes, the demographics of Texas are shifting (along with much of the country) and the voting base is becoming decidedly more Hispanic.  But despite repeated evidence that the Hispanic population frequently leans toward social conservative views, the Democrat Monday morning quarterbacks still seem to base their analysis on the assumption that nobody could ever possibly vote for a Republican except for elderly white people.

Clyburn Dismisses Tim Scott: Just Because He's Black, That Doesn't Mean Progress.  On Tuesday evening [11/4/2014], interim Republican Sen. Tim Scott won South Carolina's special election to fill the remaining two years of retired Sen. Jim DeMint's term.  Despite that electoral victory making Scott the first black senator elected by South Carolina, fellow South Carolinian James Clyburn is not impressed.

Jay Carney to GOP: Your Party is Racist — and 'You Know It'.  Former Obama White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, now a political commentator for CNN, casually admitted that, yes, his party uses race to convince minorities that Republicans seek to oppress them.  Before the midterm election, Carney said:  "Republicans are going to pick up seats in the Senate and the House, and they may win control of the Senate.  So (Democrats) need to mobilize their base voters, and that is especially true of minority voters."

Typhoid Barry.  Blacks account for a quarter of the vote for Democrats nationally, and without their utter continued solidarity, the party is in deep trouble.  But blacks continue to identify with President Obama, no matter how badly he screws things up.  It is awfully tricky for Democrats to distance themselves from him, or even turn on him, without risking black turnout in 2016 elections.

Well-financed Democrat Lies Won't Confuse Blacks This Time.  The way for a Party to get support is to deliver success.  When there is no record of success, lies, distortion, and fear become the operative tools, in hope that uninformed voters will buy the garbage.

Michelle To Black Voters: Just Vote Democrat, Then Celebrate With Fried Chicken.  First lady Michelle Obama has a message to black voters:  Don't worry about what candidates have done or said — just vote for the Democrats.

Michelle Obama grants black people permission to eat fried chicken if they vote today.  Speaking to Roland Martin on a black-oriented radio program, News One for Black America, Michelle Obama engaged in racial stereotyping that would get a white politician excommunicated from decent society, while joking about her belief in her own status as food czar.

Celebrating Six Years of Broken Promises.  Always insecure about his authenticity, Obama has, from the beginning, tried to reassure his base that he was a real African-American and not just someone who played one on TV.  This anxiety has led to a series of distortions, none more outsized than his claim as a candidate in 2007 that the events at Selma, Alabama, in 1965 stirred his parents to ignore the obvious obstacles to their multicultural romance and give birth to baby Barack.  "They got together and Barack Obama Jr. was born," said Obama to a largely black audience.  "So don't tell me I don't have a claim on Selma, Alabama.  Don't tell me I'm not coming home to Selma, Alabama."  He didn't, and he wasn't.  In reality, Obama's father had long since abandoned the family by the time of the famous march.  While protestors were confronting angry white state troopers in Alabama, the three-year-old Obama was collecting seashells with his white grandfather in Waikiki.

Race and Reaction.  [Scroll down]  And here we are now, with the nation led by a president who went to a Black Liberation Theology church in Chicago, and a first lady whose thesis was on Black Power, and an attorney general who whines about his treatment as the most powerful law-enforcement figure in the nation, and we find ourselves fully under attack because of the color of our skin.  The left has racialized every single thing that occurs in the country, and in each instance, it is non-liberal whites who are evil and blacks or Hispanics who are victims.

FLOTUS: No Matter Who's on the Ballot, Our Community Should Always Vote for Dem Ticket.  Monday on TV One, a cable channel who's programming is geared for African-American adults, first lady Michelle Obama told Roland Martin the candidate on the ballot and what they say or do should not matter to African-Americans because voting for a straight Democratic ticket best serves their communities.

Is This the Beginning of the End for Blacks and Dems?  Black voter enthusiasm has been at an all-time high during the era of the first black president, but will this enthusiasm last in the post Obama era?

Desperate Dems Are Turning to Racial Attacks.  This year is shaping up to be a great one for conservatives.  Real Clear Politics projects that Republicans are on track to pick up seven Senate seats, and there's a real possibility that come January 2015, they'll hold a 54 or 55-seat majority.  This has left Democrats utterly panicked as they scramble to motivate their base at a time when President Obama's approval rating has stalled at 39 percent.  They have turned to an old hat — race-baiting — in hopes of scaring African-American voters to the polls.

Whites say Obama's America is 'divided,' blacks feel robbed.  Over six in 10 whites believe that America is more divided now than it was just four years ago when the Tea Party rose up and helped the GOP take control of the House, and blacks feel Washington is robbing them.  A startling new poll from Rasmussen Reports finds that 65 percent of white voters believe the country is divided, and a sizable number of non-black minorities agree.  Even more — 44 percent — Democrats agree than not, 41 percent.

If It Damages America, It's Good for Democrats.  In almost every area of American life, the better things are, the worse it is for the Democratic Party. [...] Blacks who are not angry at America, especially white America, are more likely than those who harbor such anger to vote Republican.  On the other hand, the more a black American considers America a racist society, the more he or she is a guaranteed Democratic voter.  Therefore, it is in the Democratic Party's interest to ensure that as many blacks as possible regard America negatively.

Alarmed By Planned Immigration 'Surge', Civil Rights Advocate Tells Obama Amnesty Harms Black Workers.  A top civil rights advocate is warning President Obama that extending executive amnesty to millions of illegal aliens will deeply harm black workers.  Peter Kirsanow, as U.S. Civil Rights Commissioner, says in an Oct. 27 letter to Obama and the Congressional Black Caucus that U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services' recently revealed preparations for a huge ID "surge" upped his alarm over what the president has planned.  "Granting work authorization to millions of illegal immigrants will devastate the black community, which is already struggling in the wake of the recession that began in 2007 and the subsequent years of malaise," he explained.

Democratic Party: America's Resident Evil.  A New York Times article exposed that the Democrats are expecting to have their clocks cleaned in the election in a week or so.  Democrats believe that their only hope is to get out the black vote.  How do they plan to achieve this?  Of course, with their tried and true tactic of race-baiting.  In other words, the Democrats and their MSM operatives have launched an all-hands-on-deck deplorable effort to convince black Americans that white Americans are out to suppress and even murder them.  Democrats pray that hordes of enraged blacks will forget about how they have suffered under Obama and flock to the polls to vote for Democrats. [...] All that these Democrat politicians and their MSM sycophantic minions care about is infecting blacks with a victim mindset, which keeps blacks dependent on government, which keeps Democrats fat and happy with power.

Black pastor endorses Republican for governor — guess what happens next.  Corey Brooks is the pastor of New Beginnings church on the south side of Chicago.  Pastor Brooks, who is black, endorsed Bruce Rauner for governor of Illinois, going so far as to appear in television ads with the candidate.  Normally I wouldn't find it necessary to describe the skin color of anyone I write about.  However, in this case, it's central.  Because ever since Pastor Brooks endorsed a Republican for office, he and his church have experienced threats and attacks.  More specifically, the pastor and his family have received hundreds of death threats.  Most recently, his church was vandalized.

Demagogue Al Sharpton: The Democratic Party's New 'Civil Rights' Leader.  The Democratic Party no longer fights for actual civil rights for African Americans.  It has become beholden to race hustlers and demagogues, those who inflame passions based on memories of the real racism that existed decades ago but which is no longer relevant to the present-day American experience.

There's No Place Like Utopia.  [Scroll down]  Along the way [Joel] Gilbert bumps into notables like Jesse Jackson, Michelle Obama's mother, and most interestingly, Peggy Joseph, the Florida woman who scored brief internet fame for announcing after the 2008 election that she would no longer have to work because Obama was going to pay her mortgage and her gas.  Much to Joseph's disappointment, Obama not only didn't follow through, but her mortgage and gas prices are even higher.  She educated herself politically since 2008, and does not support him today.  Neither do some of Gilbert's other interviewees, poor blacks in communities increasingly devastated over the decades by progressive policies.

Blacks On Barack: 'Worst President Ever, He Chose Illegals Over Americans'.  These Chicago residents put Obama on blast for choosing to pour millions of dollars into helping illegal aliens instead of the communities with high levels of violence and crime in the United States.

Black disappointment with Obama threatens Democrats.  Black voters' disappointment with President Barack Obama, who they so eagerly embraced for so many years, could be costly on Election Day to Democrats, who badly need a big African-American turnout to win Senate and gubernatorial races in key states.  Instead, many African-Americans see an unemployment rate well above the national average, continuing problems with crime in many neighborhoods, and a president more interested in trying to help other voting blocs that didn't give him such unwavering support.

Political TV Ad Claims Obama Is Bad for African Americans.  A new television ad airing in Louisiana makes the case that the nation's first black president has been bad for the black community.  The ad comes from a group called "Progressives for Immigration Reform" and uses images of Hurricane Katrina devastation and blacks standing in unemployment lines to argue that "our own president" wants to allow in millions of illegal immigrant workers to "take jobs when many of us still can't find jobs."

The Democrats Go Back to Their Racist Roots.  The Democratic Party is trying to use the shooting of Michael Brown by police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri to stimulate black turnout.  There is zero reason to believe that the Brown incident had anything to do with race.  Is there any evidence that Wilson, if attacked by a 6' 4", 292 pound white man, would not have shot him?  No.  Wilson may or may not have overreacted; we may never know for sure.  But connecting the incident to race is sheer political opportunism by the Democrats.

Jeff Sessions: Obama's Immigration Policies Hammer Black Workers.  Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) told Breitbart News that black workers across America should be wary of supporting Democrats because of President Obama and other Democrats' support for immigration policies that displace them economically.  "A nation owes its first obligation to its own citizens," Sessions said in an emailed statement.  "But our current immigration policy advantages the citizens of other countries over our own.  Undeniably, one of the groups most hurt economically by unjust immigration policies are African-American citizens."

Why Do Democrats Oppose Voter ID?  Leftist opponents of voter ID truly think minorities are less able to function in American life.  I learned this when a Department of Justice Voting Section lawyer opposed to voter ID told me he thought blacks were more likely to forget their photo identification than whites were.  Their lives "were more disorganized," he said.  This is a lawyer currently still working in the Civil Rights Division at the Justice Department.  This is a perfect example of the "soft bigotry of low expectations."

Districts drawn to elect minorities may cost Democrats control of House.  Black residents of this small southeast Florida town like their congressman.  Rep. Alcee Hastings looks like them.  He understands them.  "If the person has the same race as you, I think they care about you more.  They understand where you come from," said Michael Foreman, a personal trainer.  Hastings, a black Democrat, represents a surgically drawn district where a majority of the population is black, one of dozens of majority-minority districts around the country.  For three decades, lawmakers have increasingly crafted similar districts so that historically underrepresented populations will have adequate representation.

The Racism of Open Borders.  Over the years since the mid-1960s, when the white left discovered how easy it was to convince black supremacists (e.g., the Black Panthers) that they should not integrate, but self-segregate into Black Student Unions, Black Business Leaders Associations, the Black Community, etc., black people have been cynically manipulated into believing and embracing all sorts of negative, disastrously damaging things about themselves.  First and worst is the idea that they cannot possibly succeed in life, due to the racism of white people, without the massive intervention and help of [...] WHITE liberal Democrats!  They managed to convince the vast majority of black people that all whites hate them and spend a large part of their time scheming and coming up with ways to keep black people down.  The frightening thing is that just a cursory look around America makes this idea about as ludicrous a notion as you could possibly come up with.  Yet black people have bought into it, big time.  They have also let the White Left convince them that welfare is not only acceptable, but that they are somehow entitled to it to make up for the way white people have kept them from succeeding.

Amazing ad tells Louisiana blacks that Mary Landrieu has failed them.  Senator Elbert Guillory of the Louisiana State Senate is known as a maverick, a black Republican in a state where the Democratic Party is sustained by solid support by the African-American population.  But that doesn't stop him from tyelling the hard truths he believes African-Americans must face.

Black Genocide And The Black Leaders Who Support It.  This weekend, the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) is proudly hosting an event with Planned Parenthood on Capitol Hill. BET Networks is sponsoring the issue forum on "reproductive freedom".  The nation's largest abortion chain, never missing an opportunity to target the black community, is addressing how the Hobby Lobby decision will impact — you got it — black women.  The Hobby Lobby decision does nothing to reduce anyone's access to birth control.  The Supreme Court decision ruled that a closely held corporation cannot be forced to pay for an employee's abortifacients, including Plan B, Ella, and hormonal and copper IUDs.  The lawsuit never opposed the other 16 forms of contraception, and the ruling doesn't touch those.  But this weekend's conference isn't about birth control, but spin control with a racial twist.

Should Joe Biden Step Down?  Vice President Biden is being urged by liberal activists to "brush up his Shakespeare."  His friends are trying desperately to clean up the latest mess that Joe Biden has caused.  He recently told a group at a Legal Services Corporation event that his son, Beau Biden, had worked to protect our soldiers from "Shylocks" — whom he described as unscrupulous lenders.  This is only one of the oldest anti-Semitic slurs in our language.

Rush Limbaugh's Call Screener: 'What Liberalism Has Done To Black Communities Is Horrific'.  Most Rush listeners know James as either "Snerdley," the call screener, or the "Official Obama Criticizer."  Golden was in Washington recently for a CURE meeting and that's where we got the chance to sit down with him for this exclusive 30 minute video interview.  For the first half of the interview, Golden waxed passionately about race in America, and how America's first black president has only harmed race relations in this country.

Yes, I Blame White Liberals.  At every turn, liberals send the message that blacks are lesser Americans.  Liberals say it is hateful for conservatives/Republicans to expect blacks to speak English correctly, show an ID to vote, refrain from murdering each other, and stop dropping out of school.  White liberals say asking blacks to refrain from having babies out of wedlock is culturally insensitive and imposes morality on them.  Libs ignore the truth that fatherless households contribute to gang membership, black-on-black violence, and poverty.  Do you see the pattern?  White liberals insinuate that urban blacks are poor uncouth savages.

The Sad Irony of John Lewis Playing the Race Card.  It was one of [Governor George] Wallace's state troopers who shot to death Jimmie Lee Jackson, a civil rights demonstrator, in Marion, Alabama.  A few days later, on what is now known to history as "Bloody Sunday" — March 7, 1965 — civil rights protesters led by a young activist named John Lewis sought to cross the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma on a 55-mile walk to the state capital of Montgomery.  They didn't get far.  Governor Wallace had his state troopers waiting for them, and along with local law enforcement the troopers charged the demonstrators, beating the living hell out of them, John Lewis included.  The incident spurred the passage of the 1965 Voting Rights Act — itself a re-do of the Republican-passed Fifteenth Amendment that was ratified in 1870, 95 years earlier and repeatedly ignored by elected Democrats.

At Risk in Senate, Democrats Seek to Rally Blacks.  In black churches and on black talk radio, African-American civic leaders have begun invoking the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, along with conservative calls to impeach Mr. Obama, as they urge black voters to channel their anger by voting Democratic in the midterm elections, in which minority turnout is typically lower.

Democratic Party Has Roots in Violence, Racism and Bigotry.  When I read this morning that a high school in the South was going to drop its racist, confederate name, I immediately thought of Democrats Strom Thurmond or Robert Byrd, who were Klan members and staunch segregationists.  But no ... the school is Nathan B. Forrest High School in Jacksonville, Fla. Forrest was a Confederate General and a leader of the Ku Klux Klan.  I decided to research a little bit into General Forrest and it turns out he was honored at the 1868 Democratic National Convention.  In fact, the KKK was founded by Democrats to terrorize blacks and white Republicans.

Let's play 'What if a Republican Said It' with Harry Reid's racially insensitive jokes.  Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) found himself in some hot water on Friday [8/22/2014].  According to Time Magazine's Zeke Miller, the Senate Majority Leader "drew laughter from an Asian audience Thursday with a pair of Asian-themed jokes."

The Real Villain of Ferguson.  The Great Society, which I voted for and supported from the bottom of my heart, is the villain behind Ferguson.  Ferguson is the Great Society writ large because the Great Society convinced, and then reassured, black people that they were victims, taught them that being a victim and playing a victim was the way to go always and forever.  And then it repeated the point ad infinitum from its debut in 1964 until now — a conveniently easy to compute fifty years — as it all became a self-fulfilling prophecy.  The Great Society and similar policies screwed black people to the wall.  It was racist to the core without knowing it.

Democrats Pay Black Staffers 30% Less.  If you're a person of color hoping to get hired by a political campaign, here's the ugly truth:  You'll probably get paid less than your white counterparts, if you're even hired at all.  On both sides of the aisle, there is a racial pay gap in campaign politics.  Asian, Black and Latino staffers are paid less than their white counterparts, according to an analysis by the New Organizing Institute.

Former NFL Pro Explains Why He's a Republican: Democrats Are Destroying Black Communities.  Garry Cobb played football for USC and then for 11 years with the Philadelphia Eagles.  He is now running for New Jersey's 1st District seat as a Republican, and his explanation of why he is no longer a Democrat is very compelling.

Charge: Obama plan to legalize millions of immigrants 'disastrous' to blacks.  President Obama's much-rumored executive order granting legal status to potentially millions of illegal immigrants will be "disastrous" to African-American job seekers and a slap in the fact to others proceeding through the tedious legal immigration process, charges a member of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights.

NBC News, Politico Bury Nunn Campaign's Asian Slur.  You would think that a major U.S. Senate campaign caught referring to an ethnic group as financially "very tight" would thrill a media that loves nothing more than political scandal mixed with race.  Well, not when it's a Democrat campaign.  When that's the case, the media circle the wagons to pretend it didn't happen, or in this case, reassure everyone there's nothing to see here, because this is just how campaigns are run.

20 Examples of What Liberalism REALLY Is.  [#5] Liberalism is people who say that asking for voter ID is racist while claiming that black Americans are too uniquely stupid and lazy to get an ID.

Is the race card all that's left in the administration's deck?.  Blacks rightly feel jilted after pledging so much loyalty and emotion to a man they thought was one of their own.  They are painfully learning that President Obama is like the fast-talking peddler of magical elixirs who promises a cure-all, then skips town before you find out you've been bamboozled.  The protesters feel used and now the president and the Democrats seem to have jilted them in favor of the Hispanic vote.  That's what the unbridled illegal immigration debate is all about.

The Secret War On Black Republicans.  According to former Republican National Committee Chair Michael Steele, who is African-American, the media do not seem particularly interested in covering perceived racial slights when the victim is a black conservative.  "In my race for the U.S. Senate, I was painted in blackface with big red lips and called an Uncle Tom," Steele told the Beast.  "I had Oreo cookies thrown at me during the Lieutenant Governor debate in 2002.  "And there seems to be this attitude they can get away with it and in a large number of ways they do.  Because the press does not go after such attitudes the way they would if, for example, a conservative were seen holding a poster of Barack Obama in a disparaging caricature."

A Primer on Race.  Back in the heyday of the British Empire, a man from one of the colonies addressed a London audience.  "Please do not do any more good in my country," he said.  "We have suffered too much already from all the good that you have done."  That is essentially the message of an outstanding new book by Jason Riley about blacks in America.  Its title is "Please Stop Helping Us."  Its theme is that many policies designed to help blacks are in fact harmful, sometimes devastatingly so.  These counterproductive policies range from minimum wage laws to "affirmative action" quotas.

Why liberals should stop trying to 'help' black Americans.  The civil-rights struggles of the mid-20th century were liberalism at its best. The efforts culminated in the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which outlawed racial discrimination in employment and education and ensured the ability of blacks to register and vote.  But what about the social policy and thinking that arose from the ruins of Jim Crow?  Good intentions aside, which efforts have facilitated black advancement, and which efforts have impeded it?  Many liberals today don't seem particularly interested in asking this question, even though 50 years into the war on poverty the picture isn't pretty.

Did Obama Fail Black America?  For many African-Americans, he has been a hero — but also a disappointment.  On critical matters of racial justice, he has posited no agenda, unveiled no vision, set forth no overarching mission to be accomplished.

Democrat Says Of Hispanic Republican: 'We Need To Send Her Back To Wherever She Really Came From'.  Is Alan Webber intending to win any votes from Hispanics?  He's a Democrat vying for the party's gubernatorial nomination in New Mexico, and his recent comments about incumbent Republican Governor Susana Martinez aren't likely to make him many friends.  Video obtained by The Weekly Standard shows Webber at a candidate forum where he made the questionable remarks.

Reparations and the Great Unmentionable.  Call it American history à la carte.  Over at the Atlantic, Ta-Nehisi Coates, the magazine's national correspondent, has written a long and instructive piece titled "The Case for Reparations."  In which Coates supports Congressman John Conyers's H.R. 40, the Commission to Study Reparation Proposals for African Americans Act.  Let me start here by saying I don't doubt Mr. Coates's sincerity.  And since one of his objectives is doubtless to launch a serious discussion on the issue of race and specifically the issue of reparations, I'm happy to oblige.  This is a long and serious article.  Yet for all of the facts and passion, Coates never gets around to the Great Unmentionable. [...] What is the pattern here — a very telling pattern?  Everything was perpetrated by some vague "Mississippi" or, when named, a collection of people with titles like "governor" (Vardaman) or "senator" (Bilbo and Calhoun) or "Red Shirts" or "Klansmen" or just plain "Woodrow Wilson."  The Great Unmentionable in the Coates article is... the Democratic Party.  Progressives.  Democratic political fortunes were built on racial politics.

Jim Crow alive and well in Eric Holder's Justice Department.  Jim Crow is now making a huge comeback, thanks to the identity politics so common among liberals, especially on college campuses.  As PJ Media columnist and former U.S. Department of Justice civil rights attorney J. Christian Adams notes, a federal court recently struck down a law in the Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands that allowed only people of "Northern Mariana descent" to vote on constitutional referendums. In Guam, the new Jim Crow appears in a law that allows voter registration only by those with ancestors living there prior to 1950, thus effectively limiting the ballot to individuals descended from the Chamorro people.

Obama Looks to Bypass Congress and Promote Racial Spoils in Hawaii.  When we pledge allegiance to the flag, we also pledge allegiance to the Republic for which it stands — "one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."  The modern American left has put each of these qualities up for grabs.  For example, implementing "social justice" would make it logically impossible to provide justice for all of us as individuals.  The left is also unfavorably disposed to the idea of one indivisible nation.  The Akaka Bill was a good example.  As Gail Heriot and Peter Kirsanow explained, this legislation, which the House passed in 2010, would have enabled the nation's approximately 400,000 ethnic Hawaiians to organize themselves into one vast Indian tribe. [...] Existing Indian tribes have a degree of sovereignty.  But this was an attempt to establish and empower a tribe where none existed, and to do so along racial lines.  Naturally, as Heriot and Kirsanow explained, the attempt was really about funneling billions of dollars to ethnic Hawaiians, a Democratic constituency.

White people be playing the race card.  The Republicans-hate-blacks narrative remains crucial to maintaining the monolithic 95 percent Democratic black vote, without which the Democratic Party cannot succeed.  Economist Thomas Sowell writes, "If Republicans can get just a fourth or a fifth of the black vote nationwide, that can shift the balance of power decisively in their favor."  As recently as 1956, nearly 39 percent of blacks voted Republican in the presidential election.

What White Democrats Really Think About Black Americans.  On any given day of the week, one can turn on the liberal media and hear how the Democratic Party is the one party that cares for black Americans. [...] Just a few weeks ago, Nancy Pelosi told Americans that Republicans were trying to take food out the mouths of black Americans by cutting food stamps.  She then stated that 50% of food stamp recipients are black Americans.  And let us not forget that the Democrats are fighting hard against the supposedly racist voter ID laws on behalf of the poor blacks who are either unable or too stupid to get an ID card in 2014.  When Newt Gingrich called President Obama "the food stamp President" during a presidential debate in 2012, both Chris Matthews and Lawrence O'Donnell immediately thought of black people and accused him of racism.  As a black American, it is infuriating for me to listen to white Democrats' claims of helping blacks when all they are doing is making sure that blacks remain dependent upon Government handouts.  That stance reveals what they really think about black Americans.

Condoleezza Rice too privileged to be role model for blacks: Fox's Bob Beckel.  Fox News' Bob Beckel suggested Monday [5/19/2014] that Condoleezza Rice, the first female and first black secretary of state, is not a good icon for young black people because she didn't grow up in the "ghetto." [...] Mr. Beckel said there's a "lot of truth" to Mr. Holder's notion that racism is still alive and well in America.

Democratic Congressman Condemns Chicago Sun Times Article.  A leading African American member of Congress from Illinois condemned the Chicago Sun-Times for running an "over the top" column last month that compared black Republican voters to Jews who collaborated with the Nazis.  Democratic Rep. Danny Davis told the Washington Free Beacon on Tuesday [5/20/2014] that the piece by Sun-Times columnist Neil Steinberg was surprising, "inaccurate," and "over the top."  Steinberg's piece sparked a row in the Jewish and black communities last month after Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn's reelection campaign tweeted — and then quietly deleted — several messages praising the article and encouraging followers to read it.

Bloomberg Writer: Black Republicans Are a 'Lower' Group.  Bloomberg writer Francis Wilkinson recently wrote a piece claiming that Republican Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina — an African American — only became a senator because Republicans "lowered the bar" for his appointment.  He also claimed that Scott's candidacy serves as a "shield" for racist Tea Party members to hide behind.  In an article that is more invective than analysis, Wilkinson essentially called Senator Scott a do-nothing senator.

Democratic Congressman Makes Shocking Racial Comments About Republicans, Clarence Thomas, Mitch McConnell.  A Mississippi Democratic Congressman says Clarence Thomas is an "Uncle Tom," Mitch McConnell is a "racist," and that Republicans are only anti-big government and anti-Obamacare because President Obama is black.  Rep. Bennie Thompson made the comments over the weekend while appearing on a New Nation of Islam radio program.

NJ Democrat Caught on Tape, Fears Her Town May Become [...].  Conveniently the Star-Ledger leaves out the part about her being a Democrat.

The Radical Left Rewrites the History of Civil Rights.  The general thrust of left-wing pundit Richard Cohen's syndicated column of April 17, 2014 is an attack on Rand Paul's (and other prospective GOP presidential candidates') lack of experience. [...] Bad as Cohen's attack on Paul (and others) is, his sly effort to rewrite the history of the Republican Party's (and by implication, the Democrat Party's) role in the struggle for blacks' civil rights is even worse.  Unhappily, however, Cohen's historical revisionism typifies the American left's all-too-successful efforts to change Americans' memories of the roles of the two major political parties on behalf of blacks' civil rights.

Some Lessons from Cliven Bundy.  I am not a lawyer, and am not going to pretend to be one.  Neither do I give any credence to the claims about Bundy's "racist" comments that were engineered by the New York Times' Adam Nagourney, a left-wing gay man following the "progressive" playbook of demonizing those against whom you can't argue.  I would only note that Bundy didn't actually make any "racist" comments.  Instead, what he DID do was point out how terribly, terribly destructive that Democrats and the rest of the "progressive" movement have been for black Americans over the past few decades.  If there's anything racist going on, it involves trapping African-Americans in a grinding cycle of poverty and despair, while psychologically bullying them into continuing to support the very people — the Democrats — who trapped them in the first place.

Obama program aims to reduce 'births' among blacks, Latinos.  President Barack Obama is attempting to lower the rate of "births" — and separately, pregnancies — among blacks and Latinos.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lists reducing "births" as one of the top goals of Obama's "Teen Pregnancy Prevention Initiative."  The language on the CDC's website makes clear that the program seeks to reduce the rate of both pregnancies and "births" among minorities.

Erasing the race card.  The race cards have been flying so fast and furious lately, one can hardly tell the kings from the queens.  Leading the weird lately has been Democratic Alabama state Rep. Alvin Holmes, who called Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina "Uncle Toms."  Holmes, who also has said that it's fine by him if men want to marry mules and, while we're exorcising demons, that white people are only pro-life until their daughter gets pregnant by a black man.

Black Lives, Democrat Lies.  A fascinating article by Francis Wilkinson appeared in Bloomberg View last week (h/t Instapundit).  Wilkinson detailed the fact that income inequality between whites and blacks is worse in leftist cities: [...] Now to someone like me — a former liberal who became a conservative, in part, because I saw the devastation wrought on poor black neighborhoods by leftist policies — this is no surprise, not even all that interesting.  What I did find riveting though were the desperate attempts by presumably left-leaning social scientists to explain the discrepancy away.

Progressive Insurance.  No one asks Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to step down from the Supreme Court; but in a quite frightening remark, she quipped that she was surprised about the uproar over abortion:  "Frankly I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don't want to have too many of."  Frankly, that seemed a savage thing to say, especially given the inordinate percentages of abortions among minorities and the poor.

Blacks must reject purveyors of dependency, victimhood.  During the dark days of slavery in America, there were many geographic areas where the number of slaves significantly surpassed the number of whites and slave owners.  This occasioned appropriate anxiety for the owners, who cleverly sowed seeds of discord among the different groups of slaves in an attempt to effectively destroy unity.  For example, field slaves were told that the house slaves thought of themselves as superior. [...] In today's culture, there are political forces that see the descendents of slaves as useful objects for maintaining their positions of wealth and power.  By promising to care for their every need, they create dependency.

The states with the most segregated public schools are epicenters of liberalism.  The state with the most segregated public schools is New York.  Other states with exceptionally segregated schools include California, Illinois and Michigan.  These findings come from a longitudinal study of enrollment figures conducted by the Civil Rights Project at the University of California at Los Angeles, The Associated Press reports.  The period studied was 1998 through 2010.

Report: NY Schools Are Most Racially Segregated.  New York state has the most segregated public schools in the nation, with many black and Latino students attending schools with virtually no white classmates, according to a report released Wednesday [3/26/2014].

Few African Americans Enrolling in Covered California.  African Americans make up about 7 percent of California's population but just 3 percent of Covered CA enrollees.  But the situation is actually worse than that because African Americans make up 17 percent of the state's uninsured population, the very people Obamacare was supposed to attract.

The Democratic Party's War on Black People and How to Counter It.  As one of the relatively few people (percentage wise) to have spent more than a decade on both sides of our political divide, and also to have participated personally in the civil rights movement in the South in the sixties, I am going to say something that will be extremely controversial to liberals, indeed make them hate me.  Given all those years I spent on the two sides, I have observed liberals to be vastly more racist than conservatives and libertarians.  It isn't even close.  During the time I was on the left, I heard many racially disparaging comments by my associates either offered in confidence or as off-hand remarks.

Unruly Progressives.  Sure, once in a while, a prominent liberal will run afoul of his brethren.  MSNBC dropped its relationship with Alec Baldwin shortly after suspending him in the wake of video footage of the actor allegedly shouting homophobic slurs to a paparazzo.  Around the same time, Martin Bashir resigned after he declared, on air, that someone should defecate in Sarah Palin's mouth.  But Democrats are given a wide, wide berth for comments they themselves would be quick to label racist.  South Carolina Democratic chairman Dick Harpootlian, for example, urged his party to "send Nikki Haley back to wherever the hell she came from."  (That would be Bamberg, S.C., but her parents were Sikh immigrants from India.)

How 'My Brother's Keeper' Stands to Destroy Already Bad Schools.  Though the Obama presidency has years to go, he has already initiated his legacy project.  It's called My Brother's Keeper and attempts to help "at risk" young men of color — those prone to crime, mayhem, drug addiction, and fathering illegitimate children. [...] That's the good news.  The bad news is that Obama's putative cure is a modern-day Progressive nightmare.  It will fail while further generating government make-work jobs, and most importantly, it will hurt the education of millions of minority children.  This awaiting nightmare is hardly hidden, and tellingly, everything starts with more government jobs.

When Blacks Voted 80 Percent Dem, Malcolm X Called Them 'Chumps'.  When blacks gave 80 percent of their vote to the Democratic Party in 1964, black activist Malcolm X called them "political chumps."  White voters, X said, "are so evenly divided that every time they vote, the race is so close they have to go back and count the votes all over again.  Which means that any bloc, any minority that has a bloc that sticks together is in a strategic position.  Either way you go, that's who gets it."  Yet Democrats, said Malcolm X, failed to deliver on a promised and much anticipated new civil rights bill, knowing the party could still count on their blind support in the next election.

Poll: Just 11% of blacks say life under Obama is better for young African-Americans.  President Obama is going to have to do a whole lot more than promise to make things better for young blacks under his new "My Brother's Keeper" initiative, because 71 percent of voters in a new poll say life for the group is the same or worse than before he came into office.

The Left versus minorities and charter schools.  If anyone wanted to pick a time and place where the political Left's avowed concern for minorities was definitively exposed as a fraud, it would be now — and the place would be New York City, where far-Left Mayor Bill de Blasio has launched an attack on charter schools, cutting their funding, among other things.  These schools have given thousands of low-income minority children their only shot at a decent education, which often means their only shot at a decent life.  Last year, 82 percent of the students at a charter school called Success Academy passed city-wide mathematics exams, compared to 30 percent of the students in the city as a whole.

Florida Democrat: we need immigration reform to get hotel maids and lawn guys.  It's a [very] good thing for Alex Sink, the Democrat running against David Jolly in a tight Florida special election for Congress, that she isn't a Republican.  If she had an (R) after her name, there would be nothing left of her after remarking that immigration reform is vitally necessary to keep hotels full of maids, and lawns well-tended: [...]

Biden: 'I May Be a White Boy, But I Can Jump'.  During a celebration of African-American History Month, Vice President Joe Biden said, "I may be a white boy, but I can jump."  The comments were made at Biden's home, the Naval Observatory.

Black Pastors: Impeach Holder.  A coalition of black pastors announced on Tuesday at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. that they are launching a campaign to gather one million signatures on a petition calling for the impeachment of Attorney General Eric Holder for violating his oath of office by trying "to coerce states to fall in line with the same-sex 'marriage' agenda."  "President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder have turned their backs on the values the American people hold dear, values particularly cherished in the black community:  values like marriage, which should be strengthened and promoted, rather than weakened and undermined," says a statement by the Coalition of African American Pastors that has been posted online with their impeachment petition.

White House pushes for black enrollees.  The Obama administration is engaged in a "final coordinated push" to enroll blacks in ObamaCare, White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett said Friday [2/21/2014].  Jarrett said blacks have a "disproportionately low rate of coverage," and called enrolling them the administration's "top priority."

NYC: More Black Babies Killed by Abortion Than Born.  In 2012, there were more black babies killed by abortion (31,328) in New York City than were born there (24,758), and the black children killed comprised 42.4% of the total number of abortions in the Big Apple, according to a report by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.  The report is entitled, Summary of Vital Statistics 2012 The City of New York, Pregnancy Outcomes, and was prepared by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, Office of Vital Statistics.

Black America: Stop The Insanity!  Why do you continue sleeping with the enemy, voting for liberal Democrats whose policies imply that you are inferior, stupid, and culturally immoral?  When the NAACP and Democrats claim that requiring a photo ID disenfranchises blacks, such implies we are stupid.  For the life of me, I do not understand why millions of blacks are not highly insulted by this absurd claim.  Do blacks fly?  Do blacks drive cars?  Do blacks cash checks?  When Democrats and liberals accept over 70% out-of-wedlock births and fatherless households as a cultural norm in the black community, I am offended.  And yet, I am called a sellout.

Spot the Black Dummies.  All forty-one voting members of the CBC have dutifully cast their ballots with the Democrats over 90% of the time during their tenures in Congress with most having done so more than 94% of the time.  The aforementioned John Conyers, in his 47 years in the U.S. House has voted in lockstep with the Democratic Party nearly 94% of the time.  Charles Rangel has used his vote to break ranks with the Democrats a paltry 4.5% of the time in over four decades.  Yet no one from the NCAAP or other far-left organizations ever raises the notion that these individuals are just dummies doing the work of their masters, even though the data would certainly point toward that conclusion.

Seven Minimum Wage Facts That Have Democrats Worried.  [#5]  Minorities and the poor are hit hardest by the minimum wage.  Nobel Prize-winning economist Milton Friedman famously noted that "the most anti-black law on the books of this land is the minimum wage law."  Higher wages mean employers seek higher, more skilled workers.  That, said Friedman, puts those with disproportionately less education and experience at a significant disadvantage when looking to put their foot on the first rung of the employment ladder.

Romney grandchild [is the] latest victim of racist media.  Now there has been a lot of this "knockout" game going around where thugs sneak up on unsuspecting victims and cold-cock them to the pavement.  The goal is for innocents to drop like sacks of potatoes, without even a defensive flinch.  It has been done to young people, mothers, students, elderly men and even elderly women.  But never before has such an attack been caught on video where it was performed so ruthlessly against a defenseless infant.  Since you, like most Americans, do not watch MSNBC and have never heard of any of these thuggish characters, I will describe what they did.

Barack Obama's Presidency Is A Complete Failure By His Own, Self-Imposed Standards.  In November, black unemployment was still 12.5%, after 5 years under President Obama.  The Hispanic, or Latino, unemployment rate was still 8.7%.  The teenage unemployment rate, reflecting Obama Democrat experiments with the minimum wage, was 20.8%.  The black teenage unemployment rate was 35.8%. [...] More than 3 times as many jobs were created for African-American women in Reagan's first term, compared to Obama's first term, even though the population was much larger in Obama's first term.  Jobs for African American women rose by 15.1% in Reagan's first term, compared to 2.6% in Obama's first term.

MSNBC's Attack On Romney Child Exposes Left's Racism.  In the season when charity for our fellows should be in our hearts, MSNBC mocks Mitt Romney's family Christmas photo for prominently featuring his black grandson.  The real bigots are on the left.

A deep sickness on race on MSNBC and CNN.  It used to be unacceptable for national news shows to broadcast race hatred as commentary.  No longer.  So extreme is the loathing of white Republicans that black commentators on two cable news channels have uttered patently ridiculous and shameful comments on a Romney family photo that shows the former presidential candidate with his black adoptive grandson on his knee.

The Great Race Hoax.  When Barack Obama rose to national prominence following his 2004 keynote address at the Democratic National Convention, his African-American heritage was a footnote to the fawning reception he received from the media and from most Americans. [...] Fast forward to today.  President Obama's race is no longer a footnote.  It is central to his presidency.  It is arguably his defining characteristic.  Unity and bipartisanship are nowhere to be found.  Who is responsible for this?  The blame rests squarely with the American Left, and specifically, with the racialists.

New report shows poor minorities in the South are disproportionately shut out of insurance options under Obamacare.  Nearly 5 million poor, uninsured adults will have no subsidized coverage options under the Affordable Care Act next year.  Three-quarters of them live in the South and more than half are minorities, according a new report by the nonprofit Kaiser Family Foundation.

Minorities disproportionately represented in health care 'coverage gap'.  New data from the Kaiser Family Foundation shows that minorities will make up 53 percent of the estimated 4.8 million low-income Americans who will fall into the "coverage gap," leaving them without viable options to obtain health insurance next year.  In the 25 states that won't expand eligibility for the Medicaid program, many adults earn too much to qualify for Medicaid, but not enough to qualify for tax credits that would help them purchase marketplace insurance.  That puts them into the bureaucratic no-man's land known as the "coverage gap."

On the Road to Itascas.  Martin Luther King Jr. said, "We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope." [...] Was Reverend King referring to the infinite hope for more food stamps, Medicaid, and Obamaphones?  That is all socialist entitlement offers.

Blacks and Obama.  There is every indication to suggest that Obama's presidency will be seen as a failure similar to that of Jimmy Carter's.  That's bad news for the nation but especially bad news for black Americans.  No white presidential candidate had to live down the disgraced presidency of Carter, but I'm all too fearful that a future black presidential candidate will find himself carrying the heavy baggage of a failed black president.

Blacks and Obama.  There is every indication to suggest that Obama's presidency will be seen as a failure similar to that of Jimmy Carter's.  That's bad news for the nation but especially bad news for black Americans.  No white presidential candidate had to live down the disgraced presidency of Carter, but I'm all too fearful that a future black presidential candidate will find himself carrying the heavy baggage of a failed black president.  That's not a problem for white liberals who voted for Obama — they received their one-time guilt-relieving dose from voting for a black man to be president — but it is a problem for future generations of black Americans.

The War on Conservative Minorities.  Members of both political parties use sharp elbows to rough up and discredit the opposition, but the media are supposed to call "foul" on the worst abuses.  But when the media are ideologically opposed to conservatives — especially minority conservatives — the abuses sometimes get lost in the shuffle.

Obamacare and the Death of Liberalism.  [Scroll down]  These "smart" people can't even run a website.  The eternal liberal dependence on class warfare and racism?  Yes indeed, the party of slavery, segregation, lynching, the Ku Klux Klan, racial quotas and illegal immigration never blinked at the shameful firing of an Obamacare operator — a black single mom — for the "crime" of answering Sean Hannity's questions honestly.  And doing so while keeping on a rich white woman named Kathleen Sebelius whose management of Obamacare has been as incompetent as it is dishonest.

The truth about civil rights and the Democrat Party.  After appearing on MSNBC this week where he compared the Tea Party movement to the Ku Klux Klan, Democrat Congressman Alan Grayson (D-Florida) stirred controversy when his KKK-themed fundraising email surfaced featuring a burning cross, men in white sheets, and the words Tea Party spelled out in flaming letters.  If anyone would know what the Ku Klux Klan stands for, it would be Grayson and his Democrat Party.

Alan Grayson Flaunts His Ignorance.  The Ku Klux Klan was the vicious thug wing of the Democratic Party.  You know, that political party which endorsed the KKK, refused to recognize the 14th Amendment?  The political party that encouraged the KKK to attack and kill Republicans and blacks.  That encouraged the KKK to burn down Republican offices, attack Republican homes, lynch blacks and in all ways try and destroy the Reconstruction of the South. [...] No less an authority than historian David Barton says in his book 'Setting the Record Straight: American History in Black & White' that not only did the Democrats work hand-in-glove with the Ku Klux Klan for generations, they started the KKK and endorsed its mayhem.

Did MSNBC'S Chris Hayes Use 'KKK' Image For Cruz, Paul, Rubio?  Chris Hayes, host of MSNBC's All In, has a favorite tactic — though not an original one:  connecting today's Republicans with the racist Democrats of the old South.

Equal Employment Opportunity Commission Accused of Using Racial Stereotypes.  Several groups have accused the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission of using racial stereotypes as the foundation for a lawsuit charging an education company with discriminating against minorities in its hiring process, according to a legal brief in the case.  The EEOC alleges in Equal Employment Opportunity Commission v. Kaplan Higher Education Corp., et. al., that Kaplan's screening of applicants' credit histories has a "disparate impact" on minorities.

Boxer Calls Ex KKK Member Byrd One of the Great 'Senators and Historians'.  Byrd famously joined the KKK at the age of 24 and proceeded to rise to the lofty rank of Exalted Cyclops, leading his local chapter.  The former West Virginia senator also refused to join the military during World War II out of fear he may have to serve with African Americans, or as the great senate historian put it:  "race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds."

Tavis Smiley: 'Black People Will Have Lost Ground in Every Single Economic Indicator' Under Obama.  PBS's Tavis Smiley made a comment Thursday [10/10/2013] that every African-American as well as liberal media member should sit up and take notice.  Appearing on Fox News's Hannity, Smiley said, "The data is going to indicate sadly that when the Obama administration is over, black people will have lost ground in every single leading economic indicator category".

What Democrats Really Care About.  Black unemployment is twice that of whites.  Yet not only do liberals refuse to try to improve the black inner-city schools so that blacks have a fighting chance of using their talents to support themselves, but they actually work to ensure that public education stays bad.  Obama ended a school choice program that disproportionately helped blacks in D.C., and Obama's administration is suing Louisiana to end a school voucher program that is primarily helping poor blacks.  Any competition would result in the public schools having to improve, but if they do, then there will be fewer dependent people, and that is bad for Obama.  Obama proves he cares more about power than about the poor when he works to ensure that the public schools in poor areas remain horrible.

Jobless Rate for Black Teens: 38.2%.  The unemployment rate for African American teenagers aged 16 to 19 was 38.2 percent in August, according to the latest figures released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).  This figure is nearly twice the 20.5 percent unemployment rate for white teens of the same age, and down less than a percentage point from the 38.8 percent black teen unemployment rate BLS reported in August 2012.  The jobless rate for black teenagers hovered in the 40 percent range all summer, prime earning time for students trying to save for college.  It peaked in June at 43.6 percent, compared to 20.4 percent for white teenagers.

13.0%: Unemployment Climbs in African American Community; 210,000 Fewer Jobs.  The unemployment rate in the African American community climbed from 12.6 percent in July to 13.0 percent in August, according to data released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.  At the same time, the number of African Americans 16 year [sic] or older who held jobs dropped from 16,318,000 in July to 16,108,000 in August — a decline of 210,000.

President's policies are hurting Hispanics.  Hispanic unemployment is getting worse — spiking up to 9.4 percent — and more are descending deeper into poverty every day.  Hopelessness is spreading and people are giving up — as the labor force participation rate has fallen from 66 percent in 2008 to 63.4 percent today.  The number of Americans receiving foods stamps has surged to 47.6 million — a 13 percent annual increase during the same time, and now we read Obamacare is turning many full-time jobs into thousands of part-time jobs.

Obama's War on Black Education.  And now through his Justice Department, President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder are again seeking to restrict poorer, inner-city black families to under-performing inner-city schools. [...] Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal (R) called the action "shameful" and said President Obama and A.G. Holder "are trying to keep kids trapped in failing public schools against the wishes of their parents."

The Dream is No More.  [Scroll down]  Today, African-Americans are the most manipulated and abused segment of the American population.  Black children are deliberately ill-educated, as the unions and politicians are more concerned with their own welfare than that of the children.  The Democratic Party Establishment, content in the knowledge that Black America has been conditioned to vote for their candidates in overwhelming numbers regardless of circumstances, views the vast majority of blacks with condescension and disdain.

Douthat Can't Say It, But I Can.  You liberals were the guys that said never again would the U.S. countenance racist thugs like Lester Maddox and George Wallace.  Today, in 2013, it is liberals that not merely condone but actually encourage the racist Reverends who go out every morning to remind African Americans that Jim Crow is just around the corner.

The Hood Comes to Duncan, Oklahoma.  The nation's hoods and increasingly, barrios are modern-day reservations, where independence, initiative, self-worth, and self-respect have been stripped from residents.  Where family, community, and church have been debased in favor of the government handout machine... and minority leaders who pimp their own people for gain. [...] Gangs are replacements for families; they lend identity, security, and worth.

Obama's Economy — We've Fallen And Can't Get Up.  Household incomes are still down 4.4% since the recession ended four years ago.  Meanwhile, the unemployment picture may be even worse than we think. [...] The picture gets even grimmer the deeper you dive into the data.  The most vulnerable groups — blacks, Hispanics, female-headed families and the young — have fared far worse under Obama than everyone else.  Black households' median income has plunged 11% since the "recovery" started.  Hispanic households are off 4.5%.  For single moms, median household income dropped 7.5%.  For those households with three or more children, it fell even more — 9.2%.

The International Gay War on Black People.  Crystal Dixon was an African-American administrator in Toledo who authored a rebuttal against someone who'd accused the University of Toledo of economic discrimination against homosexual couples.  Dixon said, "I take great umbrage at the notion that those choosing the homosexual lifestyle are 'civil rights victims.'  Here's why.  I cannot wake up tomorrow and not be a Black woman."  She went on to clarify the illegitimacy of the economic comparison.

Progressives and Blacks.  Progressives treat blacks as victims in need of kid glove treatment and special favors, such as racial quotas and preferences.  This approach has been tried in education for decades and has revealed itself a failure.  I say it's time we explore other approaches.

Hillary's race card.  Madam Secretary hasn't missed a beat.  She knows that the calling card of Democrats in the Barack Obama era is a polarizing politics that seeks to fire up minority voters by stirring fears of fire hoses and police dogs.  Its basic vocabulary is imputations of racism; its evidentiary standard is low and dishonest; and its ethic is whatever works — so long as its stirs fear, anger, and resentment.  Get ready for Hope and Change 2.0.  The latest target is the state of North Carolina, which is accused of soiling itself with a new voter ID law, among other changes in its election laws.

End the Civil Rights Movement.  It's a relic of the 1960s about as relevant as bell bottom trousers.  When we are debating Oprah Winfrey's right to buy a thirty-five thousand dollar purse or whether Barack Obama's dog should be flown to Martha's Vineyard in the canine's own private state-of-the art military transport, you know it's finished.  Or should be.  It's also time for the NAACP and the Black Caucus to close up shop.  They are dinosaurs from another era, making life miserable for the very people they are intended to help.

Hey Cowards, Let's Have a Conversation.  With no doubt of their superior subtlety of mind, the most rabidly pro-abortion people are now heating up their keyboards with swellers about the value of precious black life.  On July 30, Nancy Pelosi is hosting a "Conversation on Race" in which shame-and-blame phraseologists will get a chance to fascinate each other at taxpayer expense.  No one else is listening anymore.  The epidemic of black-on-black murder, child-killings, flash mobs, and horrors like the killing of baby Santiago, combined with travesties like the racist dereliction of Holder, are imploding the liberal rhetorical frame.

And the Oscar Goes to... Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin!  Through their nakedly deceptive public speaking tours, Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton, parents of Trayvon Martin, are all but ensuring that a high percentage of American black males will continue to end up in the cradle-to-prison pipeline.  By glorifying their son's lifestyle, they push young wayward blacks away from the truth and into further trouble.

In Detroit, racial rhetoric concealed corruption.  Living in the Detroit metro area most of the last decade, I have experienced many of the events leading to its bankruptcy.  Take, for example, the 2008 State of the City address by then-mayor Kwame Kilpatrick.  With Detroit facing a perilous fiscal future and him facing ethics complaints, Kirkpatrick highlighted race.  He sparked controversy by using the "n-word" while referencing an insult he received from some random person.  Kirkpatrick vowed to stand strong against this attack, and asked citizens to stand by him against a "lynch mob mentality."  He essentially used that slur to leverage racial tension, inciting and dividing the mostly-black city against mostly-white suburbs.

The Criminal Profiling of Conservative White Males.  [Scroll down]  Once-upon-a-time, leftists displayed no lugubrious solicitude for blacks and other non-whites.  During the 1930s, for example, FDR — a patron saint for American Left-wingers — did little or nothing about segregation in the South, because doing so would offend southern white (and Democrat) pols whose votes were needed for New Deal legislation.  Never forget, also, that Roosevelt was president in 1942 when American citizens of Japanese descent were shipped to "resettlement centers" because of their ethnicity.  As recently as the early 1960s, JFK had to be practically dragged into acting on behalf of southern blacks.

Played Out: the Liberal Racists' "Uncle Tom" Card.  Holding a black man to a different intellectual standard based on his skin color.  Accusing a non-white conservative of collectivist race traitorism.  Employing one of the most infamous, overused epithets against minority conservatives in the Democratic lexicon.  "Apologizing," but disclaiming responsibility.  Sorry ... that he got caught.  Just another day at the left-wing racist office.

Democrats put Blacks in the Back of the Bus.  Currently the unemployment rate for black Americans is 13.5%, vs. 6.7% for whites, but the rate for black teens is 42.6%, vs. 21.6% for whites.  It's clear that the Obama economy has had a very disparate impact on blacks.  This is in large part due to the much lower skill levels of blacks than whites.  While 94.4% of whites finish High School only 88.1% of blacks do.  Similarly while 39.2% of whites have at least a Bachelors degree only 20.1% of blacks do.  There are many theories as to why this gap exists but a likely cause is the horrible state of public education in the inner cities where Democrat politicians and teachers unions work together with little concern for the children they're supposed to serve.

Prominent Blacks Deserting the Liberal Plantation.  In the last few months we have seen the rise to national prominence of the conservative Dr. Ben Carson of Maryland, the surprise emergence of Bishop E.W. Jackson as the Republican candidate for Lt. Governor in Virginia, and now Louisiana State Senator Elbert Guillory has switched parties with a video that has gone viral.  During this period Republican Congressman Tim Scott also became the junior US Senator from South Carolina.  Note, too, that about a year ago former Alabama Congressman Artur Davis switched parties.

More Black Democrats May Be Ready to Switch Parties.  After two black Democrat state legislators switched parties in the span of a month, more frustrated black Democrats may be willing to join them.

Rewriting history and 'Looking Backward'.  A quick Internet search reveals the following:  69 percent of Senate Democrats supported the Civil Rights Act of 1964, but that margin of support was far surpassed by the Republican Party — where the bill had 82 percent support!  It was virtually the same story in the House, where only 63 percent of Democrats supported the end of Jim Crow laws, but fully 80 percent of Republicans did!  Makes sense considering that Republicans were the party of Lincoln, abolition and emancipation!  By the following year, Democrats were starting to come along, and a larger proportion of them supported the Voting Rights Act of 1965, but they still trailed behind Republicans.

Black America shouldn't give Obama a pass.  I hope President Obama appreciates the grand bargain he's getting from African Americans:  unwavering support, stratospheric approval rating, muted exasperation when he disappoints, vociferous defense when he's under attack.  But what do black people get in return?

KKK Lynched 3,446 Blacks in 86 Years — Abortion Claims That Many Black Babies in 'Less Than Four Days'.  Over 86 years, the Ku Klux Klan lynched 3,446 blacks — a figure matched in less than four days if tallying the number of black babies who are aborted.  Walter Hoye, founder and president of the Issues4Life Foundation, shared those statistics at a press conference on Tuesday where black clergy and other leaders gathered in response to the guilty verdict in the trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell, who was convicted of murdering three newborn babies.

25 Reasons To Dislike Liberals.  [#18]  Liberals have been big supporters of slavery, Indian massacres, the KKK, eugenics, fascism, communism and Jim Crow laws.  Then, down the road, after liberals finally join everyone else, they try to claim that conservatives still support all the practices that we fought liberals on from the beginning.  [#19]  Liberals think black Americans are inferior to whites, which is why the worst, most crime-ridden places to live in America are inevitably run by liberals.  That's acceptable to liberals because they don't think black Americans deserve any better.

Barack Obama's America.  Barack Obama's America is a place where the president's daughters can vacation on the taxpayers' dime in the Caribbean and twice at ski resorts, all within three months, plus attend ritzy private schools, while poor black children at horribly failing schools in the District of Columbia have their "opportunity scholarships" taken away.  Barack Obama's America is one where a black man can be elected president and a black man can be appointed attorney general, and then where both they and their sub-appointees can argue that huge parts of America are still fundamentally racist.

The Minimum Wage Hurts Unskilled Black Workers.  Historically, [...] minimum wage laws and unions have actually hurt the black community.  Did you know that there was a time in our country, after the Civil War, when white unemployment was higher than black unemployment?  It seems almost unfathomable now, but that was the case in the early decades of the 20th Century.  This was intentionally changed after Congress enacted the first federal minimum wage law:  the Davis-Bacon Act of 1931.

School for scandal.  The seven were nicknamed "the chosen" and, according to Georgia state investigator Richard Hyde, the less than magnificent seven sat in a locked room without windows, erasing wrong answers and inserting correct ones.  It's one thing for a child to cheat on a test; it's quite another for teachers to do it.  Compounding the cheating scandal is that the children in this elementary school are mostly poor and African-American.  How are they helped to develop a moral sense, not to mention an academic foundation that will lift them out of poverty, if they get the message that cheating is better than achieving?

The Party of Civil Rights.  Of the 21 Democratic senators who opposed the 1964 [civil rights] act, only one would ever change parties.  Nor did the segregationist constituencies that elected these Democrats throw them out in favor of Republicans:  The remaining 20 continued to be elected as Democrats or were replaced by Democrats.  It was, on average, nearly a quarter of a century before those seats went Republican.  If southern rednecks ditched the Democrats because of a civil-rights law passed in 1964, it is strange that they waited until the late 1980s and early 1990s to do so.

History Lesson: Racist Democrats and the Big Lie.  It makes [Democrats] profoundly uncomfortable that among the 21 who voted against the Civil Rights Act of 1964 can be found Albert Arnold Gore, Sr., the founder of the Hillbilly Dynasty; Robert "KKK" Byrd, the Conscience of the Senate; and Sleepin' Sam Ervin of Watergate fame.

No Guns, No School: Liberal Racism In Obama's Chicago.  Facing a billion-dollar budget shortfall, the Chicago Public Schools' plan to close 54 schools, mostly in black and low-income neighborhoods, forces many students to cross gang boundaries to get a mediocre education.

25 Examples of Liberal Racism in Quotes.  [None that I would care to print on akdart.com ]

Race-Baiting Perez Would Enforce Hiring Quotas At Labor.  By putting his civil-rights pit bull in charge of the Labor Department, the president thinks he can force businesses to hire minorities amid record joblessness.  But he'll only alienate employers more.

Minimum wage responsible for black unemployment, Sowell says.  In an appearance on Fox News Channel's "Hannity" with fill-in host and Daily Caller editor in chief Tucker Carlson, author Thomas Sowell argued that the federal minimum wage law has been used to undermine companies that employ blacks.  In the fourth quarter of 2012, the black unemployment rate was more than double the rate for whites.  But prior to the 1930s, Sowell said, black unemployment was actually lower than white unemployment.

Ensuring Black Kids Get Inferior Education: a Civil Rights Issue?  The single greatest civil rights issue in modern America is the inferior quality of education that so many black Americans are receiving.  If the KKK were in charge of the school system in cities like Detroit and Atlanta, the kids couldn't be getting a much poorer education.  But, as long as there are black, liberal Democrats running the show and wetting their beaks, nobody seems to care whether the children get educated.

President Obama's War On Women And Minorities.  The 2012 election featured the bottom feeding charge of a Republican War on Women.  The grounds for such a charge were less than zero.  But with the Democrat Party outright controlling so much of the national media, every Democrat talking point takes on added weight.  Is opposition to abortion indicative of a "war on women?"  That would overlook the fact that at least half of babies aborted are female.  Maybe it is a liberal war on women.

'Know Your Place': Elite Media Target Herman Cain.  There is no greater danger to the left (and therefore the media) than minorities who "forget their place" and join the Republican Party.  Each time this occurs, it represents a two-part existential threat.  First, these apostates undermine the cherished media narrative that portrays Republicans as intolerant of anyone who isn't white or male.  Second, those who think for themselves might give others ideas.  And so, in order to terrify others into "knowing their place," the media targets "runners" for personal destruction.

20 Of The Most Embarrassing Moments In The History Of The Democrat Party.  [#6] Democrats Successfully Stop Republicans From Making Lynching A Federal Crime (1922):  "The U.S. House adopted Rep. Leonidas Dyer's (R., Mo.) bill making lynching a federal crime.  Filibustering Senate Democrats killed the measure." [...] [#12] Fire Hoses And Attack Dogs Used On Children (1963):  Birmingham, Alabama's notorious Commissioner of Public Safety, Democrat Bull Connor, used attack dogs and fire hoses on children and teenagers marching for civil rights.  Ultimately, thousands of them would also be arrested.  [#13] Stand In The Schoolhouse Door (1963):  Democrat George Wallace gave his notorious speech against integrating schools at the University of Alabama in which he said, "segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever."

Black Leaders: 'Direct Correlation Between Gun Control and Black People Control'.  Gun control dates back to laws before and after the Civil War that prohibited or restricted African Americans from owning firearms, a group of black leaders said Friday [2/22/2013] at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.  "History is [rife] with examples.  There's a direct correlation between gun control and black people control," Stacy Swimp, president and CFO of the Frederick Douglass Society, said at the event.

Star Parker: Blacks Who Back Gun Control Need to Study History of Slavery and Jim Crow.  [Scroll down]  Parker said:  "Well, I'd say they need to revisit their history — black history, black slave history, black Jim Crow history — and they should visit the histories of other tyrant nations where we had people like Hitler and Stalin and Mao.  Every single time there is someone who wants to take away all other rights of the people, the first right they take away is your right to bear arms."  "I believe that the the Congressional Black community, or the Congressional Black Caucus is absolutely out of step with black America today on this issue," Parker said.

That Could NEVER Happen Here...  On February 19th, 1942 FDR willfully and intentionally violated The Constitution, an act for which he should have been impeached.  I am speaking of the Japanese internment — the rounding up of over 100,000 people who were frog-marched into Concentration Camps on American soil.  Far more than half were American Citizens with a full and complete set of alleged Constitutional Rights.

Pro-Obama election flyer marked with NAACP seal featured Klan, lynching imagery.  A presidential election flier disseminated in North Carolina and marked with a seal for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) featured Ku Klux Klan and lynching imagery as part of its presentation urging voters to head to the polls.  Another pro-Obama flier in North Carolina informed African-American voters that Mitt Romney would relegate them to "picking cotton" if elected president.

The Minority Youth Unemployment Act.  In his latest attempt to increase the minority youth jobless rate, President Obama is proposing to raise the minimum wage.  In his State of the Union address, Mr. Obama proposed an increase to $9 an hour by 2015 from $7.25, and then indexing the minimum to inflation.  "Employers may get a more stable workforce due to reduced turnover and increased productivity," the White House says.  No doubt employers are slamming their foreheads wondering why they didn't think of that.

Against the Ghetto Plantation.  If Frederick Douglass walked today's ghettos, he would witness a new-age style of slavery, plantations without the lash and chains.  He would soon be outraged that government overseers are perpetuating generations of dependency through policies designed to capture the votes of the ignorant.

Harry Belafonte Condemns "White America," Pleads for Civilian Disarmament.  Lest we forget, southern racists created America's first gun control laws.  They depended on it.  Without gun control, they couldn't have raped, tortured, disenfranchised and murdered blacks.  Today's gun control laws continue to leave African Americans — in specific — defenseless against the vicious criminals that prey upon their communities.  Not to put too fine a point on it, gun control is racism.

NAACP president: Black people worse off under Obama.  NAACP President and CEO Benjamin Jealous said Sunday [1/27/2013], perhaps unwittingly, that black Americans "are doing far worse" than when President Obama first took office.  "The country's back to pretty much where it was when this president started," Mr. Jealous told MSNBC host David Gregory on "Meet the Press."  "White people in this country are doing a bit better.  Black people are doing far worse."

The Editor says...
Maybe next time you should vote for someone who knows how to run a business and put people to work, and who can improve your situation, instead of voting for an incompetent "community organizer" just because he's your favorite color.

Obama's Mention of Gay Rights May Raise Eyebrows Among Black Backers.  By linking the founding moments of women's rights (Seneca Falls, N.Y.), African-American rights (Selma, Ala.), and gay rights (Stonewall Inn), President Obama stepped forcefully into a politically charged zone.  He became the first president to mention the word "gay" and the issue of gay rights in an inaugural address, according to ABC News.  While praised by gay-rights advocates, the remark might raise eyebrows in the African-American community, where social conservatism runs deep, as does skepticism about gay rights.

Liberalism Versus Blacks.  San Francisco is a classic example of a city unexcelled in its liberalism.  But the black population of San Francisco today is less than half of what it was back in 1970, even though the city's total population has grown.  Severe restrictions on building housing in San Francisco have driven rents and home prices so high that blacks and other people with low or moderate incomes have been driven out of the city.  The same thing has happened in a number of other California communities dominated by liberals.

Kwanzaa, Liberalism And Hypocrisy.  I have never met a Black liberal who truly embraces the kind of self-determination Kwanzaa proposes, which calls for one to define themselves and speak for themselves.  Black liberals have been indoctrinated by an ideology which makes it instinctive to malign, slander, and assassinate any idea, definition, or expression that does not espouse liberal Democrat policies.  Liberal Black Americans do not self-define.  They are defined by the Democrat Party and they fight to promote those definitions.

Radio Host on Tim Scott: 'Black Only in Skin Color'.  Tim Scott has been appointed to fill the South Carolina Senate seat being vacated by the retiring Jim DeMint and immediately the racebaiters jumped in with both feet to attack him.  One of the early hatemongers was Amos Brown, a host on a religious radio station in Indianapolis, Indiana.  Brown used his Twitter account to claim that African American Tim Scott isn't really a black man.

MI Union destroys hot dog cart, calls owner an 'Uncle Tom' over right-to-work.  Clint Tarver's hot dog cart, which he has operated since 1996, is another casualty of the union protest against the right-to-work law.  Union members destroyed the cart and called Tarver an "Uncle Tom," among other racist epithets, for serving right-to-work proponents.  After destroying the Americans for Prosperity tent, where Tarver was catering hotdogs, the mob turned there [sic] attention to the hot dog cart.

Union Thugs Demolish Lansing, Michigan Hot Dog Vendor Clint Tarver's Equipment.  Everyone who has passed the hot dog cart knows what a kind and caring individual Clint is.  He never fails to bestow a smile or friendly greeting.  In no way [did] he provoke this attack, nor any of the behavior displayed toward him.

Union Goons Destroyed Man's Hot Dog Cart While Calling Him [Names].  So Mr. Tarver runs a business, semi retires, operates a hot dog cart for so long that it becomes a local icon, then gets himself hired by those Koch minions and somehow gets the unions' tolerant and thoughtful ones to call him names and wreck his business, er, if you're a liberal and buy the alternate history view of Tuesday's events.  That's one of the longest and weirdest false flag operations I've ever heard of.

Saturday Night Card Game (WaPo plays the Rice card).  Everytime I think the Democratic race card players could not get more vile, more deranged, more patronizingly demeaning to blacks, someone manages to defy even my vivid imagination.

For Some, Obama Was Just Good Enough.  Blacks and Hispanics in particular believe the country is headed in the right direction.  Black voters appear to feel that way despite soaring black unemployment.  By contrast, the real explanation for Obama's strong showing among Hispanic voters may have less to do with Republican immigration policy and more to do with the fact that two-thirds of the jobs created during Obama's presidency have gone to immigrants, legal and illegal.

Black preacher spreads the Word ... against Obama.  "We've got a sitting president who supports same-sex marriage, who never met an abortion law he didn't love," [Rev. Patrick] Wooden preached.  "Our definition of marriage doesn't come from the president or the Constitution.  We get our definition of marriage from the creator," he thundered, and a chorus of "amens" and applause pealed through the cavernous church.

Exodus: Inner City Blacks Fleeing Obama, Democrats.  After his meteoric ascent to the top of the American political arena in the country's history, we are now in the midst of witnessing one of the most stunning collapses of any man ever to hold the office of President of the United States.  Over the past few weeks we have begun to see the ultimate unraveling of support for the president, with women and youth fleeing from his side.  But what is even more surprising and perhaps unimaginable to the president and his faithful media cult is that he is now also losing members of his normally deemed "untouchable" base of support — poor, inner-city black Americans.

Four Reasons Black Christians Should Not Vote for Obama.  Outspoken and passionate in his faith, Maryland Bishop Harry R. Jackson, Jr. tells it like it is.  Speaking to his congregation last Sunday in Baltimore, the outspoken man of faith declared his reasons for opposing the re-election of Barack Obama this November 6th.  In fact, he offered four compelling reasons to make a stand against the first black president that may resonate strongly in the black Christian community.

Blacks should vote God's way — against Obama.  [Scroll down]  Mr. Obama has done very little, if anything, to help the black community.  In fact, he has turned his back on the very values that are the moral backbone of the black community.  The damage to natural marriage and family that he is attempting to inflict is going to be devastating to black Americans.

Pastor Challenges Fellow Blacks to End "Slavish Devotion" to Democratic Party.  A pastor in Virginia is taking on the Democratic Party's long-time strangle-hold on the black voting bloc, telling fellow black Americans that it is high time for them to end their "slavish devotion to the Democrat Party."  In a nearly four-minute video produced by the group Americans Taking a Stand, Bishop E.W. Jackson, pastor of Exodus Faith Ministries in Chesapeake, Virginia, nails the Democrats for their support of abortion and homosexual marriage, and for eschewing Christian values, in the process challenging black Christians to make a mass exodus from the party.

Obama Camp. Threatens NAACP Official.  The Illinois political director of President Barack Obama's campaign allegedly threatened a Chicago NAACP official because he did not support Obama's reelection campaign.  David Lowery, the president of the South Suburban Branch of the NAACP, alleged to CBS Chicago that Louis Raymond, the Obama official, threatened him during a phone call because Lowery did not support Obama.  Lowery felt Obama did not adequately address the concerns and issues of the black community.

What If Obama Were White?  Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Mo., the chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, said last year, "If (former President) Bill Clinton had been in the White House and had failed to address this problem, we probably would be marching on the White House."  The problem to which Cleaver refers is black unemployment.  At the beginning of the Obama administration, 12.7 percent of black adults seeking work were unemployed.  Black unemployment is now 14.1 percent.  Black teenage unemployment at the beginning of the Obama administration was 35.2 percent.  Black teenage unemployment is now 37.9 percent. [...] The head of the Congressional Black Caucus concedes that blacks suffer from a level of unemployment that would be unacceptable under a white president.  But because of Obama's race, Cleaver refuses to criticize him.

The Plight of Young, Black Men Is Worse Than You Think.  On the day Barack Obama was inaugurated in 2009, [Becky] Pettit said, "there was hope that perhaps the U.S. was becoming a post-racial society."  But it wasn't true then, and it's not true now.  The gap between blacks and whites remains wide in employment, income, wealth, and health.  And as Bloomberg's David J. Lynch reported earlier this month:  "The nation's first African-American president hasn't done much for African-Americans."

Blacks are abandoning the Democratic Party.  For more than 50 years, the black community has been the wholly owned subsidiary of the Democratic Party.  That may be changing.  In spite of the overwhelmingly liberal voting patterns of black voters, they are an essentially conservative community.  Americans of African descent are more pro-life and pro-family than the average white voter and as conservative on social issues as any white evangelical.  Democrats have managed to monopolize the black vote in spite of the vast chasm between the two on social issues.

Black Pastor Calls on Flock to Leave the Democrat Party.  "We believe that the Democrat Party has shown itself to be anti-Christian, anti-Bible, anti-family, anti-life and anti-God, and it's time for Christians to come out," Jackson explains.  "We are focusing particularly — not exclusively, but particularly — on black Christians who in our view have been held captive by the Democrat Party with a tissue of lies."

The Editor says...
Imagine that.  The black "community leaders" are finally figuring out that food stamps are slavery, inner-city abortion is genocide, and Democrats assume that blacks will vote for them no matter what.  At last, some are starting to wake up and look around.

Hope and Chains.  The nascent American progressive movement tied its fortunes to the Democratic Party early in the twentieth century because, like their Southern brethren, progressives were suspicious of what industrialization had wrought, including the formation of well-capitalized corporations so critical to growing economies.  As it happened, the nation's first progressive president, Woodrow Wilson, was a Southerner.  He was born and raised in Virginia and spent his formative years in the South.  In an era when social Darwinism fed into segregation's guiding principle, that all men are not created equal, Wilson fit right in.  He was an ardent segregationist, and his administration reinforced separation of the races in the public realm.

Obama Is Trying To Buy The Hispanic And Female Vote With Another Government Giveaway.  Now that the polls say that President Barack Obama's poll numbers with women and the Hispanics in the United States aren't as exceedingly high as they were previously, there is suddenly a new benefit to the farming — and rancher — community who are either female or Hispanic, who feel they were discriminated against in the not-so-distant past.  How ironic that this benefit to females and Hispanics is being offered right before President Obama's reelection date.  One might logically think that the timing of this benefit to these groups — who vote — is planned to sway their presidential election vote on November 6.  It's just one of the many, many methods in which an incumbent president can grab some extra votes in the eleventh hour.

Ann Coulter's Right: Democrats Are Dropping Blacks And Moving On To Hispanics.  It's a plain statement of fact to say that black Americans did better economically under George W. Bush than Barack Obama, isn't it?  Black Americans oppose gay marriage and Obama kicked them under the bus on that, didn't he?  Has he done anything to reduce crime that's hurting black communities?  No.  Has he done anything to keep abortionists from preying on black Americans?  No.  Has he done anything to reduce illegal immigration, which disproportionately impacts black Americans who are more likely to be competing with illegals for low skill jobs?  No.  What it all boils down is that black Americans are going to vote Democrat no matter what.

Obama's Legacy on Black America.  Will Obama leave blacks striving for the highest ideals, as did MLK?  Unfortunately not.  Obama will leave office with blacks behaving at their monolithic worst:  voting skin-color over innocent life, national security, the economy, and even their once-sacred relationship with Christ.

Univision Debacle: Obama Misleads, Condescends To Latino Community.  While everyone is talking about Obama's revealing comments yesterday admitting defeat when it comes to changing Washington DC from the inside, what struck me most after watching his entire Univision interview was Obama's condescending and deceitful answer when pressed on the issue of immigration reform.

Race-Bait-and-Switch.  The coverage at the third-tier cable outlet MSNBC this week has been no less than a hysterical fit over all the perceived "racist" slights that might possibly be construed from criticism of the president. [...] Speaking of Bill Clinton, America's first "first black president," he is slated to speak at the Democrat convention.  This is the same man who said, "A few years ago, this guy would have been carrying our bags."  But let's not single out Bill Clinton, because there are plenty of other arguably race-based comments by Democrats (and if they were Republicans, those remarks would be trumpeted as right-wing "racist dog whistles").

Bad News for Black Families.  When we assess the President's post-election performance and the effects of his redistributive and regulatory policies, we find that, like a falling tide, he is sinking everyone.  We also find that although Barack Obama has hurt all American families, he has hurt black families most of all.

Media Madness, and the Reckoning.  Last week a line was crossed, and full blown insanity manifested itself in the formerly-mainstream media. [...] Even if Artur Davis weren't black, how is it a non-story, when the guy who seconded Obama's nomination ends up with a prime time spot on the GOP Convention stage?

Forsaking the Democrat 'Plantation'.  The stars of the GOP curtain-raiser in Tampa weren't top-billed Gov. Chris Christie or even Ann Romney.  They were two young black conservatives the Democrats don't want you to know.

Obama Smear Machine Goes After Artur Davis.  How negative is the Obama campaign? So negative that its priority this morning has been attacking Artur Davis for joining the Republican Party and speaking at the RNC 2012 Convention.  There is nothing that Democrats hate more than a Black Republican.  That is an old hatred that goes back to the Reconstruction Era when Democrats lynched Black Republicans.  Now they lynch Black Republicans with words.

Black Conservatives Appear in New Documentary "Runaway Slave".  Former presidential hopeful Herman Cain and other black conservatives appear in the new documentary 'Runaway Slave,' which digs deeper into whether America's growth in entitlement programs has harmed and even "enslaved" African Americans to a permanent welfare state.

DNC Web video attacks Artur Davis.  A new Web video from the Democratic National Committee targets Democrat-turned-Republican Artur Davis, suggesting that his switch of parties was a purely self-interested move, not one based on political principle.  Davis, a former Alabama congressman and 2010 gubernatorial candidate, gave one of the nominating speeches for then-Sen. Barack Obama at the 2008 Democratic Convention.  Four years later, he will have a primetime speaking spot at the Republican National Convention Monday.

Obama and the Asphalt Plantation.  President Obama has done nothing to address the problems of the black community defined in a 1965 report by Daniel Patrick Moynihan.  And by doing nothing, he's made the problems worse. [...] When Barack Obama said "I'm not the president of the black America," he was telling the truth.  He hasn't been blacks' president, because he hasn't acted as the nation's president.

From Hope and Change to Dope and Chains.  As everyone in the galaxy has by now learned, our esteemed Vice President spoke before a group of Barack Obama's remaining supporters last week and included the following in his observations about Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan:  "Look at what they value, and look at their budget.  And look what they're proposing ... unchain Wall Street.  They're gonna put y'all back in chains."  This was no slip of the tongue.  It was in a prepared speech delivered with the aid of a teleprompter, and it is part of the trifecta of fear on which he and his boss are betting in the hope that a majority of the electorate can be frightened into voting for them in November.

Race-Baiting And The Resultant Subculture.  The network coverage of the London Olympics suggest that liberal commentators see only the color of a person's skin and their Pavlovian response is inevitably to interject race into their commentary.  Gabby Douglas may have been the first African-American to win a gold medal in the all around gymnastics but in his closing remarks of her bio segment Bob Costas had to suggest that she would be an inspiration to African Americans girls.  Why not all girls, Mr. Costas?

Biden: Back on the chain gang.  Vice President Joe Biden told a racially mixed audience Wednesday [sic - Tuesday 8/14/2012] that if Republicans take back the White House, "They're going to put y'all back in chains." [...] There's no reason for the Obama campaign to apologize because hacking at the raw wound of racism is critical to the Democrats' reelection strategy.  This race is about race because if it were about issues, Democrats would lose.  Mr. Obama's moribund economic record would guarantee that.

More about Joe Biden's continual gaffes.

White House defends Biden, says remarks not racist.  The White House launched into damage control mode Thursday to deal with the growing chorus of Republicans and at least one Democrat accusing Vice President Biden of race-baiting after Biden told a mostly black crowd in Virginia that Republicans want to "put y'all back in chains."  Biden's comments were "without question" a racial appeal, said former Virginia Gov. Doug Wilder, a Democrat and the nation's first elected African-American governor.

WH blows off first black governor's rebuke of Joe Biden.  White House Press Secretary Jay Carney dismissed a rebuke of Joe Biden offered by former Gov. Doug Wilder, D-Va., in response to Biden's "chains" comment.  Wilder, the first black governor elected in the country, faulted Biden for saying "they're going to put y'all back in chains" during a recent campaign stop.  "Slavery is nothing to joke about!" Wilder said yesterday [8/15/2012].

Artur Davis: 'Every black person in the room knew who y'all was'.  Former Rep. Artur Davis, a one-time President Obama supporter who campaigned for Mitt Romney earlier today [8/15/2012], slammed VP Joe Biden in an interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer earlier, keeping the controversy over his "chains" comment going.

Has Obama Been Good for Black Americans?  Please don't tell me that the first black President of the United States has helped black Americans.  Last time I checked, the rate of unemployed blacks, age 18-29, was 22.3 percent in July.  Not exactly what they and other blacks were anticipating when they voted en masse for him in 2008.

Blaming everybody but himself, as usual.
Obama Blames State and Local Governments, Congress for 14.1 Percent Black Unemployment.  In an interview with Black Enterprise magazine, President Barack Obama blames state and local governments, as well as Congress, for over 14 percent black unemployment.

Abortionist: 'Let me see you adopt one of those ugly black babies'.  The abiding creed of the left is that actions must be based on convenience, not morals.  Hence abortion practitioner Ashutosh Ron Virmani, of Charlotte, N.C. articulated his defense of the practice by citing the cost to taxpayers of raising children, and didn't hesitate to throw in a dollop of racism against blacks as part of the mix.

Raw Footage: Charlotte Abortionist Slurs Blacks.  Operation Save America, a pro-life group, confronted Dr. Ashutosh Ron Virmani, an abortionist practicing in Charlotte North Carolina, at his house.  They caught him on video telling the pro-lifers they should "adopt one of those ugly black babies" if they're so keen on trying to save them.

WashPost's Miller: Media Should Ignore 'Astroturf' Black Pastors Opposing Obama on Gay Marriage.  On the Saturday Washington Post "On Faith" page, columnist and Newsweek religion editor Lisa Miller insisted it was not a news story that black ministers came to the National Press Club and insisted Obama's support for gay marriage "might cost him the election."  It's not a story, Miller insisted, because Rev William Owens is "enough to make a cynic blush...  He's a figurehead in what political operatives call an 'Astroturf' campaign...  and his threat is not a threat."

Living Outside the Tiny Black Box.  My deepest heart's desire is to see fellow black Americans break free from the tiny black box in which Democrats and leftist do-gooders insist that they live.

Raaaaaaacists!  We're constantly being told we're racists and that conservatism is full of racist codes and dog whistles aimed at conservatives.  And yet the only people who consistently decipher these codes or hear these dog whistles are liberals themselves.

How Obama Has Failed the Black Community:  Now, almost four years later, it's clear that Obama has done nothing to improve the way of life among blacks as a whole.  In fact, statistics show that life has actually regressed for African-Americans under Obama.  As of June, the African-American unemployment rate is a staggering 14.4%, with Latinos and Hispanics having an unemployment rate of about 11.0%, while the unemployment rate for whites is 7.4%.  Compare these rates to December 2008, the final month before Barack Obama stepped into the Oval Office.  Whites were unemployed at the rate of 6.6% and Hispanics were at a rate of 9.2%, while blacks had an 11.9% rate of unemployment.

Obama — The Black Man's Burden.  Barack Obama was a no-show at the recent 103rd NAACP conference, but, clearly, he is being given a pass by the NAACP leadership. [...] If Barack Obama cannot attend the annual NAACP meeting, in an election year, on a day when he has no other pressing duties, when he has the opportunity to address almost 10,000 attendees, then how can it be a surprise to anyone that during the Obama Administration, Black Americans have experienced more set-backs than at any time in the past 30 years?

The Democratic Party as the Party of Race.  As someone who was a sixties civil rights worker, wrote movies for Richard Pryor (successfully) and Whoopi Goldberg (unsuccessfully), and has had the pleasure of working with many talented African Americans at PJ Media for nearly seven years now, I think I have earned the right to write what should be painfully obvious to everyone — most of the racism in America today is from blacks (aided and abetted by white liberals) toward whites.  In fact, it's getting to be outrageously so.

Hill Poll: Most Feel Obama Has Changed The Country For The Worse.  I'm shocked, shocked I tell you, that most think Obama is ruining the country.  And I bet some people are surprised by this poll.  They might have listened when Obama said that he wanted to "fundamentally transform America" during his hopey changey run for the White House.  And they might have paid attention to his background, policy offerings, and political experience.  Amazingly, 92% of Blacks feel that the country has changed for the better, which is strange considering the unemployment rate for Blacks is 14.4%.

African-American jobless rate surges.  As the overall U.S. unemployment rate stayed at 8.2% in June, the rate among black Americans rose nearly a full percentage point.  The reason for the increase appears to have been a rise in the percentage of African-Americans looking for a job, rather than job losses.  The unemployment rate for blacks rose to 14.4% from 13.6% in May, the Labor Department reported Friday [7/6/2012].

Black pastors target Obama.  A large coalition of African-American pastors, snubbed by President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder in their demand for a meeting to discuss same-sex marriage, are calling on blacks to boycott the president and sign a petition demanding that the administration withdraw support for gay marriage.  "By embracing gay marriage, President Obama is leading the country down an immoral path," said Rev. William Owens, president of the 1,300-member Coalition of African-American Pastors.  "Some things are bigger than the next election."

The Editor says...
I've got news for you, Reverend Owens.  The next Democrat nominee for President won't be any better than Barack Obama.  You should consider switching to the Republican Party if you believe the Democrats are headed down an immoral path.  And they are.  And you said so.  So what are you waiting for?

Pandering to the Black Voter.  According to DeWayne Wickham, who writes for USA Today, on June 23, 2012, Valerie Jarrett, senior adviser to President Obama, met with a small group of black columnists at the National Association of Black Journalists and "decried Republican obstructionism that has kept Obama from getting more done." [...] As we head into the November election, get ready for more charges of racism to be hurled at America.  Because he has an abysmal record of achievement on the economic front — e.g., black unemployment stands at 16.2% — Obama must misdirect voters.

The Dictator in the Black Iron Man Suit.  [Scroll down]  To all you blacks who think Obama is one of you:  you are wrong.  Obama is not black.  Any loyalty he has to fellow people of color is trumped by his devout loyalty to his religion of liberalism.  For example:  liberalism says the planet / the environment is better off with fewer people.  This is why Obama supports abortion despite the genocide of blacks via abortion.  Blacks are being aborted at a faster rate than any other group.  Would a true black homey support abortion?

How Obama Bankrupted Black Homeowners.  The Obama camp's running a new ad reminding African-Americans of all he's done for them as they weather an economic crisis he "inherited."  Left out is his own role in their predicament.  The press has never questioned the president about his involvement.  But his fingerprints are there.

Obama Administration Undermines Black Education.  The biggest hoax of the past two generations is still going strong — namely, the hoax that statistical differences in outcomes for different groups are due to the way other people treat those groups.  The latest example of this hoax is the joint crusade of the Department of Education and the Department of Justice against schools that discipline black males more often than other students.  According to Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, this disparity in punishment violates the "promise" of "equity."

Seventy-Six Trombones and 8.2% Unemployment.  The Attorney General headed off to speak to black ministers ostensibly to advise them of what conduct on the part of the churches is legal.  In actuality he attempted to scare them into concerted action to get out the vote by suggesting that voter I.D. laws were no more than efforts to deprive blacks of their "sacred right" to vote.  And when Florida started purging its voting rolls of 52,000 deceased voters and 180,000 non-citizens (undoubtedly aided in election fraud by the ill-considered Voter Motor law), he dashed off a letter to the Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner demanding the state stop the clean up.

Religious leader: Obama's gay marriage support a 'slap in the face of black clergy'.  Bishop Harry Jackson, senior pastor at Hope Christian Church, is leading a coalition of 176 religious leaders against President Barack Obama's declared support for gay marriage and the repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act.  "We want to know whether he is going to use the bully pulpit of the presidential office to absolutely erase the image of biblical marriage from the face of the earth," said Jackson at the Capitol on May 24.

Barack Obama Campaign Funded by Planned Parenthood Blood Money.  Back in 2008 Obama was established as not only a pro-abortion candidate, but one that believes in infanticide as evidenced by his lack of support of an anti-infanticide bill in Illinois.  The bill, if it had become law, would have outlawed the killing of babies that survive abortion.  As a black candidate, and one very popular with the black community, it seemed like a contradiction, because Planned Parenthood was created by Margaret Sanger with the intent of using the program to wipe out blacks, which she considered to be an inferior race.  Abortion in America was originally promoted as a tool to kill minorities before they could be born.  For pro-life groups, the very thought of killing any child in the womb is murder, and by many is considered to be America's genocide.

Black-on-black crime in the suites.  For decades, it was presumed that having blacks in positions of political leadership on the local, state and national levels would serve as a safeguard to preserve the victories of the civil rights movement and ensure that the people on whose behalf those battles had been fought could benefit from the new opportunities that those victories afforded.  But in time, just the opposite has happened.  In an era where race has begun to serve as both a shield (rebuffing legitimate criticism as evidence of racism) and a sword (attacking dissenting opinions as racist) many black officials have entered zones of comfort insulated from responsibility.  In many cities, monopolies of opportunist leadership have reigned unchallenged for decades.

A Psychologist Analyzes The President.  Today the Democrats have placed all their hopes in Obama.  But this man could put an end to their party.  The great majority of blacks voted for Obama.  Only a fool does not know that their support for him is racially driven.  This is racism, pure and simple.  The downside of this is that if Obama turns out to be the disaster I predict, he will cause widespread resentment among the whites.  The blacks are unlikely to give up their support of their man.  Cultic mentality is pernicious and unrelenting.  They will dig their heads deeper in the sand and blame Obama's detractors of racism.

The Obama Administration's War on Poor Blacks.  The EEOC ruled [in April 2012] that employers risk violating the 1964 Civil Rights Act by considering the job applicant's past arrest or criminal conviction record, since blacks and Hispanics are more likely than whites or Asians to have run afoul of the law. [...] A far superior strategy would be to facilitate firing iffy black employees so that employers might take some risks in hiring them in the first place.

Black pastors bash NAACP for endorsing gay marriage.  The Coalition of African American Pastors announced Tuesday [5/22/2012] that it does not agree with the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People's decision to endorse the legalization of same-sex marriage.  CAAP launched a petition last week to oppose broadening the legal definition of marriage.

The Ultimate Appeal to Persuade Fellow Blacks to Stop Voting Democrat.  Every Democrat campaign is the same.  Vote for us!  Surrender all power to us!  We'll take care of you and protect you from the evil Republicans!  Meanwhile, under Obama, black unemployment has gone through the roof.  Black-on-black crime statistics are shockingly high.  The black male high school dropout rate is at an epidemic high; only 25% graduated in New York.  Fifty percent of black pregnancies end in abortion.  Since 1973, approximately 5 million blacks have died of AIDS, violent crimes, accidents, cancer, and heart disease combined.  By far, abortion is the greatest cause of black deaths at 13 million.  Blacks are committing a suicidal genocide.  Black America, how's that monolithic forty years of loyalty to the Democrats thing workin' out for ya?

Who Is 'Racist'?: Part II.  Black civil rights attorneys and activists who denounce whites for objecting to the bussing of kids from the ghetto into their neighborhood schools have not hesitated to send their own children to private schools, instead of subjecting them to this kind of "diversity" in the public schools.

Low-Rated '30 Rock' Makes Blackface Okay Again.  Much to my non-surprise, the very same media that has turned "food stamps," "basketball," and criticism of Obama into racism, seems to be just fine with what we've been led to believe is one of the worst kinds of stereotypes out there.

Negroes with guns.  Gun control laws were originally promulgated by Democrats to keep guns out of the hands of blacks.  This allowed the Democratic policy of slavery to proceed with fewer bumps and, after the Civil War, allowed the Democratic Ku Klux Klan to menace and murder black Americans with little resistance.  (Contrary to what illiterates believe, the KKK was an outgrowth of the Democratic Party, with overlapping membership rolls.  The Klan was to the Democrats what the American Civil Liberties Union is today:  Not every Democrat is an ACLU'er, but every ACLU'er is a Democrat.  Same with the Klan.)

7 Devastating Facts About the Obama Economy.  [#1]  Every fifth man in America is out of a job.  Indeed, black male unemployment is now at the highest rate it has ever been since the U.S. government began collecting statistics on the subject in 1972.  Just 56.9 percent of black men over the age of 20 are now working.  Indeed, according to Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), one out of every six African Americans, male or female, are now unemployed.

Stunning lack of diversity in Obama campaign, photos reveal.  A photo of Obama's "army" originally posted on the campaign's Tumblr site and run in conjunction with a BuzzFeed story on the Obama campaign reveals a stunning lack of diversity among the president's Chicago staff. [...] Yet the "army of twenty-somethings" campaign manager Jim Messina has assembled in the president's hometown is almost uniformly white, according to photos contained in a detailed BuzzFeed report Monday [4/9/2012].  Further examination of the Obama's campaign's Tumblr site over the past month reveals very few black individuals — apart from the president and his wife, Michelle — in the pictures posted in the feed.  One of the only featured pictures to include a black individual is one from a recent White House visit by Star Trek actress Nichelle Nichols.

A radical Obama mobilizes the troops.  If you show me the white people who are still oppressing blacks in America, I'll show you liberal Democrats and Marxists.

Race and Rhetoric.  Race is just one of the areas in which the rhetoric and the reality often go in opposite directions.  Political rhetoric is intended to do one thing — win votes.  Whether the policies that accompany that rhetoric make people better off or worse off is far less of a concern to politicians, if any concern at all.  Democrats receive the overwhelming bulk of the black vote by rhetoric and by presenting what they have done as the big reason that blacks have advanced.  So long as most blacks and whites alike mistake rhetoric for reality, this political game can go on.

Liberal Tactics: Just Lie, No One Will Check!  I have to say, at this point I am convinced that no one on the left really hates racism.  In fact, they love it as it is their most important tool with which to control gullible voters.  Cry racism and their mind-numbed acolytes dutifully echo the charge whether it is true or not — and it's usually not.

Obama's bleak view of African-Americans.  The administration document, "An Economy Built to Last and Security for African-American Families," highlights $831 million in the budget dedicated to prisoner re-entry programs run by the Justice Department.  The funding includes $21 million for substance-abuse treatment programs in state and local prisons and jails, presuming a significant number of these must be alcoholics and drug addicts.  The White House demonstrates a low opinion of young blacks by highlighting $85 million dedicated to reducing recidivism for ex-offenders and at-risk youth through counseling, job training and drug treatment.

Celebrate Black History Month: Slap a Leftist!.  [Scroll down]  This leftist witchcraft transformed the once-great gains of the Civil Rights movement into a virtually inescapable structure of government hand-outs and dependency, establishing the Democratic Party as masters of a new plantation with black front men like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton playing the role of go-betweens and overseers.  Unlike the original forms of slavery which the Democratic Party defended and upheld for so long, this program of dependency introduced a new wrinkle:  it enticed blacks into facilitating and supporting their own subjection.

'To Stop the Multiplication of the Unfit'.  If you aren't creeped out by the No Birth Control Left Behind rhetoric of the White House and Planned Parenthood, you aren't listening closely enough. ... When a bunch of wealthy white women and elite Washington bureaucrats defend the trampling of religious liberties in the name of "increased access" to "reproductive services" for "poor" women, the ghost of Margaret Sanger is cackling.

Eat, Pray, Love and Be Black but Don't Be a Republican.  Don't make the mistake as a black person like I did and choose to be a Republican because you believe in opportunity, educational freedom (school choice, vouchers, charter schools), economic growth and small government.  If you do, you will be called awful names by black Democrats.  You will likely be hunted down by the "black police" to determine if you're "black enough" and subjected to relentless name-calling and mocking such as "you just want to be white" or "how can you be a Republican."  To which, I respond, "How can you be a Democrat?"

Now We Know Who Was Right about Obama.  To the surprise of many, we now know that Obama does not pay attention to the black community — he doesn't visit them, talk to them, encourage them, propose policies to benefit them.  He hasn't helped this suffering community, and when he does go to speechify, this is what he says:  ["]Take off your bedroom slippers.  Put on your marching shoes.  Stop complainin'.  Stop grumblin'.  Stop cryin'.  We are going to press on.  We have work to do.["]  What work is Obama referring to — jobs for the black community?  No, the work is the re-election work he feels blacks owe him!

Obama has Failed African Americans.  Obama has added more debt in three years than all previous presidents combined, from Washington to Clinton.  As a result, he became the first President to preside over the downgrade of America's sovereign debt rating.  It is just my opinion, but I believe that among Obama's legacy will be the likelihood that it will be a generation or more before another Black politician is elected to lead the nation.

Is Joan Walsh The Most Bigoted Journalist in Media?  Calling the use of the term 'food stamp,' racist towards blacks, when a majority of those on food stamps are white, can only make sense in the mind of a bigot projecting their own true brand of racism.  Projection is a staple of the left.  It is why they continue to harbor some of the more egregious offenders on the topic, whilst playing the race card at every turn.

Will Obama steal the 2012 election?  The administration is trying to whip up minority frenzy, propagating the myth of widespread ballot suppression.  The goal is to foster a sense of racial persecution of blacks, intending to maximize voter turnout in November.  The results, however, will be to poison race relations further.  Mr. Holder is cynically playing the race card in order to achieve President Obama's overriding ambition:  re-election.

A Full Nelson on Voting Rights.  Those who don't believe it's going to be a long and nasty 11 months before Election Day should just look at how Attorney General Eric Holder and Democrats across the country are accusing Republicans of attempting to keep Democratic core constituents — minorities, young people, the poor, the disabled, etc. — away from the polls.  These charges are a symptom and preview of that party's campaign, which promises to be built on little more than attempting to gin up racial and social class resentments.

Race: The Ultimate Weapon of the Left.  If Herman Cain were elected president of the United States, racial politics, far from waning, would, if anything, gain in intensity — and so would be the case if any other Republican wins the presidency, or even if Obama is reelected, for that matter.  Whatever happens, the hardy perennial of race politics will survive and thrive.  It is utterly unreasonable to expect the left to lay down its tools and walk away from a claim it has been mining with such spectacular success for so many years.

Conservatism 101 for Those Not Paying Attention.  You and I are politically well-informed.  But there are many Americans like my family who do not follow politics as closely as we do.  Their political views are shaped by liberal media hit-pieces, spin, and sound bites.  About 99.9 % of my family are Democrats because Marcus family tradition taught us that the democrats are "for the little guy."  Republicans are "rich white racists."  Liberal media and the Democratic Party jointly support and promote this silly, simple lie, which still wins the Democrats 95% of the black vote.

Obama's Zip-a-Dee-Do-Dah Black Agenda.  After three years of ignoring his largest voter base, the White House held an African-American Policy Conference November 9th.  The White House also issued a report, in case you haven't been paying attention, "outlining how the President's policies directly impact the African American community."  Reading this report you would think blacks are living Zip-a-dee-do-dah days under the Obama administration.  This will come as a surprise to the Congressional Black Caucus and the 16% of black Americans who are jobless and on a downward economic spiral.  Obama is loath to refer to himself as black much less give audience to a black agenda.

Democrat says Democratic Party bosses use voter fraud.  Top Democrats are aggressively pushing the claim that Republicans' worries about voter fraud are an insincere excuse to suppress voting by African-Americans and Hispanics.  But former Democratic Rep. Artur Davis told The Daily Caller that anti-fraud measures are needed to protect African-Americans from corrupt political bosses — many of them African-Americans themselves — who run Democratic Party machines in the South.

Blacks Still 'Played' and Controlled by Tired Old Democrat Paradigms.  Many blacks erroneously believe the GOP consists of rich racist white people.  In reality, the GOP was founded to free blacks.  Only five years after slavery, there were black congressmen, all Republicans.  The KKK, Jim Crow laws, segregation, and denying blacks the right to vote where all birthed by Democrats.  Even today, Democrats are still "keeping blacks in their place" — telling them they need lowered standards, affirmative action, special programs, and freebies to succeed.  Democrats constantly send blacks the message they are not as smart was whites.  For example, Democrats say having to show ID when voting disenfranchises blacks.  his is merely a tactic by which the Democrats implement voter fraud.  However, in the process, they are saying blacks are too stupid to find their way to the DMV or other places to acquire proper ID.  This is just one example of numerous ways Democrats tell blacks they are inferior and need Democrats' help to succeed.

The liberal lynching of Herman Cain.  Liberals are determined to destroy Herman Cain.  The Republican presidential candidate is tied or ahead of the presumptive front-runner, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.  He has been running an anti-establishment, insurgent campaign that champions sweeping tax reform and a pro-growth agenda.  He is a Southern populist who touts his private-sector experience.  He also is an authentic black conservative.  For this, he is being politically lynched by liberals in the media.  All that's missing is the noose and the tree.

Top 10 Joe Bidenisms.  [#4]  Obama "articulate" and "clean":  During the 2008 presidential election, Biden seemingly discovered that blacks can have sound hygiene.  Imagine the howls of racism if a conservative had uttered this statement:  "I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.  I mean, that's a storybook, man."

The "Borking" of Herman Cain?  It has the feel of an ambush, this sexual-harassment story involving Herman Cain. ... The emotional response is understandable.  Ever since the orchestrated, scurrilous character assassination aimed at judge Robert Bork, conservatives have been perpetually on edge, waiting for the next slander of a public figure who represents a threat to liberal power.

Four Lily White Liberals Smear a Black Man.  Just as Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain predicted, he has become the most recent victim of the race-baiting left's high-tech lynching of prominent, conservative black men.  Days before the Cain sexual harassment smear emerged from the sewers of liberal trash journalism, MSNBC's Martin Bashir hosted contributor Karen Finney who proclaimed that conservatives only liked Cain because, "they think he's a black man who knows his place."

Morass of sexual harassment.  The accusations of sexual harassment against Herman Cain are so far small potatoes, and badly baked at that.  On a scale of 1 to 10, they're hovering around 2.  Looking back, the accusations of Anita Hill against Clarence Thomas weren't so weighty, either. ... But when you remember that a sitting president with a reputation as an aspiring lady killer survived in office after he was impeached for lying about sex with a White House intern, we haven't yet defined sexual harassment.  It probably depends on what the meaning of "is" is.

Barack Obama 'Acting Stupidly'.  Without saying anything, Barack Obama's silence speaks louder than all his empty words.  The President who likes to define himself as a champion of racial equality and promoter of civility has thus far stood by in silence as liberals attempt to lower the stature of Herman Cain by portraying him as a conservative version of Stepin Fetchit.  By failing to address the prejudicial remarks directed at Herman Cain, the President of the United States is revealing a side of himself that reeks of a form of discriminatory selectiveness that should further discredit his claim to be the purveyor of civility and racial justice.

"A Black Man Who Knows His Place".  Karen Finney is not just any Democrat; she was the spokeswoman for the Democrat National Committee, served in the Clinton White House, was the press secretary for Hillary Clinton's New York Senate race, and is a veteran of four Presidential Campaigns.  Tasked with analyzing Herman Cain's surge in the GOP's Presidential campaign for MSNBC last week, Finney offered up the most outrageous, insulting, demeaning single sentence we have ever heard — particularly by someone who supposedly speaks for an entire national political party.

Black tea partier calls Democrats the 'party of the KKK'.  Conservative activist Apostle Claver Kamau-Imani, founder and chairman of Raging Elephants, told the Daily Caller that abortion in the United States amounts to "genocide ... of African American babies."  And he sent liberals on MSNBC into fits of horror Wednesday [10/26/2011] after he spoke to a Houston tea party rally and called Democrats "racists" and "the party of the Ku Klux Klan."  "If anybody is racist it is the Democratic Party," he said.  "They're the racists, the party of the Ku Klux Klan, the party of Jim Crow, the party of Bull Conner, the party of segregation."  "They are the racists, not us.  We're their friends, we're the emancipators, we're the liberators, we're the ones who believe in freedom."

Top 10 Bad Signs for Obama.  [#5]  Maxine Waters:  It is cause for concern when the congresswoman from South Central Los Angeles goes on the attack against the first black President. ... Also disillusioned are black voters who live in areas with high unemployment.  Even a slightly depressed turnout in black areas will be a disaster on Election Day for Obama.

Can I Get an Amen?  The media has been invested in the control of the black vote.  As part of the brainwashing machine, for decades, they have allied closely with Democrats and liberals to halt any progress towards political independence among the minority voter.  How?  By coining the term "minority," which in the first place implies inferiority and in the second place replaces logical and sound counsel to solving problems with a paranoid and emotional underdog worldview.

Herman Cain to Blacks: Divorce the Democratic Party.  Cain is a clear and present danger to the Democratic Party — and their invaluable near-monolithic black vote.  Cain says things like:  "African-Americans have been brainwashed" into voting for the Democratic Party; "If you (Wall Street protestors) don't have a job or you're not rich, blame yourself"; "People sometimes hold themselves back because they want to use racism as an excuse for them not being able to achieve what they want to achieve"; and "I don't believe racism in this country today holds anybody back in a big way."  How do some influential left-wing blacks react?  Not well.

It's Hard To Be a Racist.  Black people are a one-party people in a two-party system.  That means Democratic politicians have learned to take the black vote for granted, and Republicans make little effort to get it.  That's not smart for blacks to set themselves up that way.

Arrogant White Liberal Tells Herman Cain How to Be Black.  When I see a characterless liberal political hack occupying my beloved country's Oval Office, I refuse to join the flock of black sheep worshiping him because we share the same skin color.  To my relatives who have thrown their Christian values, principles, and brains out the window to give their black idol a pass, you guys are the ones who should be ashamed of yourselves.

'Stop Whining'?  If there was ever any doubt that the Democrats take the black vote for granted, that doubt should have been put to rest when Barack Obama told the Congressional Black Caucus, "Stop whining!"  Have you ever before heard either a Democratic or a Republican leader tell his party's strongest supporters, "Stop whining"?  Blacks have a lot to complain about, not just about this Democratic administration but about many other Democratic administrations, national and local, over the years.

Blacks leave Obama.  According to a Washington Post/ABC News survey, [Obama's] favorability rating among African-Americans has dropped off a cliff, plunging from 83 percent five months ago to a mere 58 percent today — a drop of 25 points, a bit more than a point per week!

Wallace Kuralt's era of sterilization.  Compassionate.  Visionary.  A champion of women and the poor.  That's the reputation that Wallace Kuralt built as Mecklenburg County's welfare director from 1945 to 1972.  Today, the building where Charlotte's poor come for help bears his name — a name made even more prominent when his newscaster son, Charles Kuralt, rose to fame.  But as architect of Mecklenburg's program of eugenic sterilization — state-ordered surgery to stop the poor and disabled from bearing children — Kuralt helped write one of the most shameful chapters of North Carolina history.

Obama's Rehabilitation Tour, or 'I Promise I'm a Leftist'.  Poor President Obama.  His leftist backers have momentarily fallen out of love with him for not destroying the country fast enough.  Obama must ask himself, "What would Hugo Chavez do?"  Obama decided to embark on a personal rehabilitation tour.  He first stopped by the annual awards dinner of the Congressional Black Caucus and told blacks to "stop complainin'.  Stop grumblin'.  Stop cryin'."  Don't they realize that it's the Republicans' fault that black unemployment is nearly double the national average, at 16.7 percent?

Beating the Racism Card.  It's well-understood that the Democrats were the party of racism and the strongest force keeping segregation alive.  Many of liberalism's grand heroes were not only racists, but crazy racists, obsessive, unbalanced, and cruel.  Woodrow Wilson had blacks fired en masse from the Postal Service, where they had found an employment niche similar to that of the Irish with the police.  He attempted the same with the Navy, where blacks had found a place as ship's stewards.  Millard Tydings is a liberal hero for opposing the monstrous Joe McCarthy.  He was also a racist of the type who couldn't bear having a black individual enter the same room.

Black Unemployment Jumped To Staggering New Highs In August.  While the overall U.S. employment situation is dismal, today's jobs report shows the crisis is much worse for minorities.  The unemployment rate for black Americans spiked to a shocking 16.7% in August, up from 15.9% the previous month.  It's now the highest it has been during Barack Obama's presidency, up from the previous record of 16.5% in March and April 2010.

Would Democrats please drop the race baiting?  There's only one problem with Carson's comment.  (OK, so there are about a couple of hundred things wrong with Carson's comment.)  Carson is a Democrat.  When blacks were left "hanging on trees" during the era when lynching was prevalent, the folks doing it were members of his party, not Republicans.  Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., obviously determined not to be outdone, went Carson one better.

Blacks' Dilemma With Obama.  For the highly politicized parts of black America, the point has always been to keep race in American politics.  For black political culture that dominated after the civil rights movement, the point was not just equal treatment under the law, but special treatment under the law.  Plus the assumption that more black political power — defined by more blacks holding office — would mean that blacks would be better off.  In other words, post-civil rights movement black political culture embraced an agenda exactly the opposite of what the civil rights movement was about.

Obama Baits the Dependency Trap.  [Scroll down]  It's a mystery how anyone could honestly believe that strengthening the chains of dependency will produce self-sufficient citizens.  Fourteen point four percent of Americans use food stamps.  Of the households using food stamps, one in three is black, according to the liberal Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.  Getting free food from Nanny State surely takes the sting away from fatherlessness — and adds to the pressure for cradle-to-grave welfare.

Garofalo: Herman Cain a paid prop to 'deflect' charges of GOP racism.  Janeane Garofalo knows why long-shot Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain is in the 2012 race.  Not to be elected, or to shine a bright light on issues he wants to advance.  No, says Garofalo:  He's some sort of plant set up to insulate the GOP from charges of racism.

Garofalo: Herman Cain Is A Stooge For Racists.  Has-been comedian and Air America host Janeane Garofalo? turned up on Keith Olbermann's little corner of Nowheresville last night, to unload some really deep thoughts about Republican racism and presidential candidate Herman Cain.  Cain is an outsider candidate and successful businessman who worked wonders for Godfather's Pizza.  Oh, and by the way, he's black.  That's the most important thing — indeed, the only thing about him that matters — to the race-crazed Garofalo.

Janeane Garofalo's 'Racist Dogwhistle'.  Thanks to Barack Obama's failed presidency, the desperate Left is left with nothing to defend and can only personally destroy, and so they've created a world where the words "basketball," "clouds" and "food stamps" are all racist.  The only thing that's not racist, however, is actual racism, especially when that racism is directed at a Black Republican.

American Blacks Cannot Be Blamed For Barack Obama.  Here we have man with a white American mother and an East African father.  No connection to West Africa whatsoever.  He spent his early years in Hawaii, one of the most racially diverse areas in the United States.  He was raised in large part by his white grandparents.  He spent several years in Indonesia as the stepson of an Indonesian Muslim.  After returning to the U.S. he attended some of the country's leading universities including Columbia and Harvard.  Virtually his entire professional life has been spent among white elites.

The Number One Killer in the Black Community.  New York City, the home of Planned Parenthood, aborts nearly 60% of all black pregnancies.  Yet abortion activists denounce any effort to address this epidemic of abortion. ... With a $1 billion annual budget and $1 billion in assets, Planned Parenthood has historically targeted African-Americans with birth control through population control efforts.  Today, the nation's largest abortion chain kills 332,278 (disproportionately black) in the latest year reported, providing only 7,021 women prenatal care and 977 adoption referrals.

Why do blacks still let Obama off the hook?  A Chicago Sun Times article, headlined "The disappearing black middle class," reports on the disproportionate effect of these hard economic times on blacks.  According to the data, taken from the Washington-based Economic Policy Institute, median net worth of white households fell from $134,280 in 2004 to $97,860 in 2009, while over the same period median black household net worth went from $13,450 to $2,170.  The national unemployment rate stands at 9.2 percent, while black unemployment is over 16 percent.

Obama and the Coming Democalypse.  In 2007, best year of the Bush era, white households had a median net worth of $134,280, compared with $13,450 for black households.  Of course they did.  It was, after all, America's first black president, Bill Clinton, who pushed the sub-prime mortgage drug on the black community, with the help of Fannie Mae kingpin James A. Johnson and the ACORN street dealers.  When you lose your sub-prime dream home, your net worth takes a big hit.

Militant Blacks: Mr Bigshot, who do you think you are?  Black leaders from Louis "Judaism is a gutter religion" Farrakhan to Cynthia "Flotilla" McKinney are screaming from the mountaintops.  President Barack Hussein Obama, "their brother" has turned against fellow blacks.  But, they explain — and this is a big BUT, the mean ole' whites made him that do it.  No snickering allowed, now — I have the videos.

Holder's Justice Department bullying banks.  A cadre of racialists bent on achieving social justice via reparations from banks to minority communities has been installed by Eric Holder in the Department of Justice.  They are using legal bullying tactics to intimidate banks into once again loaning mortgage money to people who have no ability to pay it back.  Banks have even been forced to post signs in the facilities informing customers that welfare payments can count as income to apply to mortgage applications.

Holder Launches Witch Hunt Against Biased Banks.  In what could be a repeat of the easy-lending cycle that led to the housing crisis, the Justice Department has asked several banks to relax their mortgage underwriting standards and approve loans for minorities with poor credit as part of a new crackdown on alleged discrimination, according to court documents reviewed by IBD.  Prosecutions have already generated more than $20 million in loan set-asides and other subsidies from banks that have settled out of court rather than battle the federal government and risk being branded racist.  An additional 60 banks are under investigation, a DOJ spokeswoman says.

Democrats Should Know Jim Crow, They Created Him.  Likening Republican policies aimed at preserving voter integrity in states from Florida to California to poll taxes and literacy tests of the Jim Crow era proves Democrats are desperate.  Obama's tax-and-spend agenda stinks on ice.  So his segregation mudslingers — in this case, Clinton — must rely on shopworn clichés that stir racial animus to fire up his left-wing base.  Are Clinton and Shultz insinuating that minorities, college students and the elderly are all born Democrats, that they are more likely to vote for Democratic candidates than Republican candidates?  Is this what Democratic elites think of their constituents?  Do Democrats believe blacks and Latinos, old people and youngsters, are too stupid to acquire a photo I.D. by next November?

Blacks Hit Hardest by Obama's Liberal Agenda.  According to CBS News, while the national average is a depressing 9.1%, black unemployment stands at a dismal 16.2%.  Worse still, black teens 16 to 19 face 41% unemployment.  CBS News, noting the historical disparity between black unemployment and the national average, adds that these are "Depression-era levels."

DNC Chair: GOP Aims to "Literally Drag" the Country Back to Jim Crow Era.  Lost the maelstrom of Weinergate was this delightful piece of intellectually honest, measured rhetoric from new DNC Chairwoman, Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL).  Thank goodness for Democrats, our nation's self-appointed civility police force.

Voter ID is no Jim Crow — I would know.  Having experienced the psychological pain of Jim Crow laws first-hand, I won't allow those who likely only read about Jim Crow in history books to trivialize it.  That's why I'm outraged about a recent edition of TV One's "Washington Watch" in which host Roland Martin and Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) compared state-level voter identification rules to Jim Crow.  To the contrary, requiring valid identification in exchange for something as sacred as a ballot is a pragmatic approach to governing.

Asking Voters for ID Is Not a Race Issue.  I don't get why [E.J.] Dionne thinks some people would have a hard time producing ID because of the color of their skin.  I can understand other reasons — homeless people might have a difficult time proving their place of residence, or illiterate people might not be able to fill in the paperwork — but to imply that getting and using an ID is somehow too difficult or onerous for some racial groups seems very condescending to me.  What does skin color or ethnic background have to do with it?  When we ask people to produce ID to get healthcare, as I had to, or to prove their identity to get an Amtrak ticket, no one says this is a return to segregation.

How's That Hope and Change Working Out for Obama Supporters?  Barack Obama captured a staggering 96% of the African-American vote in the 2008 election, an increase even above their traditional backing of the Democrats' candidate. ... When Obama took office in January 2009, the nation's unemployment rate stood at 7.6%.  For African-Americans, as a group, the unemployment rate was 12.6%.  Fast forward two-and-a-half years and, according to the latest data released for May 2011, the nation's unemployment rate is 9.1%.  The present rate of unemployment rate for blacks is 16.2%.  So, while the overall unemployment rate has risen by 1.5% since Obama took office, the rate of unemployment for blacks is 3.6% higher.

Chicago's Violent Flash Mobs.  The Chicago Democrats have controlled the city for more than fifty years.  The mayors Daley instituted policies that not only segregated the city and the schools, but also insured the survival of the Democratic Party at the expense of many neighborhoods.  The Chicago Defender newspaper documented how Democrat politicians in Chicago set up physical barriers to integration.  The Chicago Defender claims, "The Dan Ryan Expressway was conceived in clout and racism and born into a pattern of racial segregation that's earned it the reputation as world-famous symbol of how Chicago's politicians used to create ghettos." Barack Obama and the Betrayal of Black America.  When Barack Obama was elected as the president of the United States, black liberals dreamily believed that the numerous maladies in the black community would cease to exist.  They believed that his election was indicative of a vigorous wind of political and social change that was blowing across the country.  Barack Obama himself vowed that his election would demarcate the conclusion of grisly "politics as usual" from the commencement of political and democratic freshness.  However, as this administration continues on, it is abundantly clear that Obama has not only failed to deliver in a general sense, but he has also completely betrayed his most loyal constituency — the black community.

Who gets nearly free internet and computers?  Who are the lucky beneficiaries among all the Americans who fit this category?  Are you sitting down?  Poor blacks in Obama's hometown in Chicago are the ones getting the sweet deal.  Is it also a coincidence that Rahm Emanuel, Obama's former Chief of Staff, was recently elected mayor and may need to boost his reputation among this same group of people...

Obama's ineligibility: We know.  [Scroll down]  Both Obama and his minions see him as the reincarnation of Abraham Lincoln.  A more accurate likeness would be Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe.  In actuality, progress is an anathema to the left because as soon as individuals from any group improve their lives, they begin to migrate away from the left-wing.  So, in order for the left to maintain a constituency, they promote racial and ethnic polarization, exploit frustrated blue collar workers and open the borders to illegal immigration.  The left can only survive through unhappiness and pessimism.

Did someone mention Robert Mugabe?

Seven Of The Most Ridiculous Cries Of Racism Ever Made.  Black Americans have been voting heavily Democratic for almost 50 years and it has been an utter and complete disaster for them.  Never has any constituency in American politics been so loyal to a political party with so little to show for it.  Yet, all the Left has to do is say, "Those Republicans are racist," and it locks in 90% of the black vote.

Osama Bin Laden's strategy sounds familiar.  Captured documents reveal that Osama Bin Laden wanted to use race and class warfare to weaken America?  Isn't that what the Democratic Party has been doing for the past half century?

Liberalism, Black America's Greatest Enemy.  Liberal entitlement/welfare policies are exploitative.  They encourage a destructive cycle of out of wedlock births and government dependency.  Sadly, these poor souls created by government to be insecure in regards to their ability continue to vote Democrat to keep the freebies coming.

Why Liberals Hate Clarence Thomas and Sarah Palin.  Slaves who had the temerity to run away from their plantation "home" paid dearly if they were caught and returned.  Measures were taken to make them an example to others who might harbor similar thoughts about freedom.  Among those measures were brutal public beatings of rebels to which other slaves were forced to bear witness and digest with great clarity the price of rebelliousness.  Such is the fate today of those uppity souls who choose to challenge the authority and legitimacy of our inexorably growing government plantation.

Powerful Illinois Democrats, State Police Covering Up Racial Incident?  Breitbart Media has worked for days to get to the bottom of a seemingly highly-charged story allegedly involving racism from a high profile Democrat and now former law enforcement official that may reach into the upper-level of Illinois state government, including the office of Governor Pat Quinn.  Based upon sources in Carlinville, Illinois, at least on the surface, it appears as though powerful Democrats and perhaps even the State Police may be attempting to cover up a racial incident involving now resigned Democrat County Chair and former head of Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn's southern security detail, Kenneth Snider.

Democrats, environmentalists pushing Blacks out of their neighborhoods.  The black population of San Francisco is less than half of what it was in 1970, and it fell another 19 percent in the past decade. ... Blacks are being forced out of San Francisco, and out of other communities on the San Francisco Peninsula, by high housing prices.  At one time, housing prices in San Francisco were much like housing prices elsewhere in the country.  But the building restrictions — and outright bans — resulting from the political crusades of environmentalist zealots sent housing prices skyrocketing in San Francisco, San Jose and most of the communities in between.  Housing prices in these communities soared to about three times the national average.

Church group blasts Obama for abandoning Defense of Marriage Act.  A coalition of 34,000 black churches is blasting President Barack Obama's decision to stop defending the federal law that bans recognition of gay marriage.  The Rev. Anthony Evans, who heads the National Black Church Initiative, says Obama "has violated the Christian faith" by failing to uphold Jesus' teaching that marriage is between a man and a woman.

Razing Cain:  The age of civility, like the era of post-racial politics, is a mirage created by liberals to mute criticism of their policies by committed conservatives.  Otherwise, we wouldn't see the continued abuse heaped by liberals on women and minorities who dare to be conservative, members of the Tea Party or the GOP, or all of the above.

The Dreck Girl.  The Democrat Party, whose roots are in the Ku Klux Klan, big city machine politics, giant and corrupt unions, and fatuous Leftism provide few bright lights in American history.  Robert Byrd, chosen by Democrats to lead them in the Senate, was not an aberration.  Democrats appointed men who joined or planned to join three Klansman to the Supreme Court, one to be Attorney General, and even one President, Harry Truman, although when he found out the Klan hated Catholics, withdrew his application.

How Not to Help Blacks Find Employment.  Since the 1960s and the War on Poverty, Washington has spent billions, everything from job training programs, to tax incentives, to anti-discrimination laws to eradicate this gap, all to no avail.  Given a half century of failure, efforts to narrow differences have grown increasingly desperate.  The latest is the federal government's attempt to equalize how black and white job candidates appear to prospective employers even if they differ substantially — just ban employers from checking credit and criminal histories so as not to "unreasonably" disadvantage black job applicants.

Progressives Do Not Represent the Constitution.  While the Democrats search for ways to resurrect their failed agenda, Latinos all over the country are being coerced into becoming a radical force for change.  They want us to create chaos and civil unrest, only to help ensure that their leftist ideology will be perpetrated on the United States.  Latinos, beware — these are the same ploys that power-hungry rulers have utilized for decades to tighten their grip on our communities and make us pawns in their leftist socialist agendas that, in the end, fail to create jobs or bring opportunities that allow our families to prosper.

Welfare Creep in Laredo.  [Scroll down]  Poke around the Assurance Wireless web site a bit, and you find that this program, which is already available elsewhere and similar to existing programs, is made possible by the Universal Service Fund.  That was set up in 1996, ostensibly to expand communications networks.  At the time, some predicted that it would end up as some sort of welfare.  And so it has. ... Laredo's cell phone giveaway is an example.  The city is going for a one year grant from the USF, under the full and reasonable assumption that once the federal spigot is turned on, it won't be turned off no matter how dire our deficit situation gets.  Any threats to the free phone program will be blamed on the horrible, heartless Republicans, of course.  Democrats like [Veronica] Gonzalez believe that this is their party's route back to power:  drive up dependence, smear the Republicans for resisting, secure the Hispanic vote to the Democratic Party forever.

Why Do Blacks Still Buy The Government Plantation Lie?  Blacks still by and large see government dependence as the remedy rather than the disease, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.  They still choose to listen to left wing black political leadership and media who have careers in keeping it all going.  Consider that it was welfare state government policies that caused this economic collapse to begin with.  And that it was community activist groups claiming to represent the interests of minorities who lobbied for these policies.

Race and the 2010 Elections.  Will the NAACP be celebrating the arrival of two new black faces to the U.S. House of Representatives?  Don't hold your breath.  They certainly will not.  These two new black congressmen are Republicans.  There's a powerful message here that should and must be digested.  We have arrived in post-racial America but establishment blacks — lodged in the political left — refuse to accept it and are doing all they can to get black citizens to refuse to accept it.

Destroying Schools to Achieve Racial Justice.  [Scroll down]  This policy clearly panders to blacks, the sole demographic group not yet disenchanted with the president.  Arne Duncan even announced it on the 45th anniversary of the famous Birmingham, AL "Blood Sunday" civil rights march.  But, rhetoric aside, the measure will undermine education for many education-hungry blacks in racially mixed schools by subverting school discipline.  To be impolite, given a choice of helping blacks versus draping a destructive policy in feel-good historical rhetoric, Obama elects the anti-education option.  This sin is inexcusable — a sign of moral depravity, not just inept policy-making.

The Democrat Plantation.  How many black Americans know the Republican Party was formed in 1854 as the anti-slavery party — even as Democrats founded the Ku Klux Klan in 1866?  How many know President John Fitzgerald Kennedy, (who voted against the Civil Rights Act of 1957) along with his brother Atty. Gen. Robert Kennedy, had Martin Luther King wire-tapped by the FBI in the hope they could prove he was a Communist?  How many Americans of any ethnic persuasion know Martin Luther King was a Republican?  How many know it was Republicans who established the NAACP?

Let's Take This Country Back.  One thing is for sure:  Black Democrats love handouts.  They know that the Congressional Black Caucus will continue to fight for these handouts, which black Democrats now consider "entitlements."  Payback for slavery.  These days anything black Democrats want is considered an entitlement.  Gucci purses and 60-inch flat-screen TVs in their taxpayer-funded, government-gifted homes — all are entitlements.  For black Democrats, the government is supposed to provide food, shelter, clothing, cars (tricked out, of course), cable TV and PlayStations (the in-home babysitters), childcare, health care, and, of course, a check.

Is Black Support for Obama Racist?  Black approval of President Obama is virtually unchanged at 91 percent since his inauguration.  Now, unless we believe that 91 percent of blacks are truly as radical as Obama (and every indication is that blacks are far more conservative than he is), then what explains how Obama could have 91% approval, when even among Democrats as a whole, that number is lower at just 79 percent?  Worse, black poverty is higher now than under President Bush.  In fact, during the Bush years, black unemployment was actually lower than during Clinton's terms (you know, "the first black president"), at an average of 9 percent and certainly lower than the 16.3 percent it stands at today.

The Most Profound Victims of the Obama Hoax.  The Fourth Great Awakening in American history continues to expand among those who drank the Obama Campaign Kool-Aid.  Statistically, the most zealous believers in hope and change are the most profound victims of the Obama Hoax — poor, young, unemployed blacks.

African-American leaders express dissatisfaction with President Obama.  With President Barack Obama's approval ratings dipping below 50%, members of his strongest voting bloc have also started to voice displeasure with the way he has chosen to govern.

The Left's Lust for Black Gangstas.  Fox correspondent Erik Rush has just published a book, Negrophilia, with a profound premise.  A biracial conservative, Rush decries the Left's slobbering love affair with blacks.  Like necrophilia, liberals' obsession with black people is a sick and creepy fetish.  In 50 years, this country has traveled from segregating blacks to elevating them onto pedestals.  But not all blacks, of course; not Condi Rice or Thomas Sowell or Rush himself.  Liberals save their lust for liberal PhDs like Cornel West, as well the black urban underclass.

Stop Racial Pandering.  Harry Reid has stuck his foot in his mouth once again, this time suggesting he doesn't know "how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican."  Really?  You can't be both Hispanic and Republican?  I guess Marco Rubio, Susana Martinez, John Sanchez, and Brian Sandoval — to name just the top tier of Republican Hispanics who have won their party's nomination for statewide office this year — had either better quit the GOP or change their names.  This kind of racial stereotyping is offensive.

Obama's Race War.  The Ku Klux Klan was founded in 1865 by racist whites seeking to fight against radical Republican efforts to reconstruct the South.  The KKK targeted both blacks and white Republicans; they even targeted some Southern white Democrats who weren't sufficiently anti-black.  The KKK's argument:  Blacks, by their mere presence and attempts to participate in the political process, were destroying the dignity of the white South.

The Ku Klux Klan, Terrorist Wing of the Democratic Party.  Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) has falsely accused the Tea Party of having ties to the Ku Klux Klan.  Speaking at the NAACP convention, she said:  "All those who wore sheets a long time ago lifted them off to wear Tea Party clothing." ... It would have been far more truthful for the congresswoman to have admitted the fact that all those who wore sheets a long time ago lifted them to wear Democratic Party clothing.  Yes, the Ku Klux Klan was established by the Democratic Party.

The Democratic Party:  Keeping Blacks Down Since 1964.  Shortly after President Lyndon Baines Johnson announced an "unconditional war on poverty" in his State of the Union Address in 1964, his administration embarked on an expansion of bureaucracy rarely seen in American history.  Moreover, within two years of signaling the start of that war, LBJ interwove it with civil rights initiatives so that opposition to the War on Poverty could be branded "racism" by Democrats running against opponents of big government.  Time has shown that if there was any racism attached to the War on the Poverty it was the racism which Democrats brought to the table.

The Slave Mentality.  [Scroll down]  There is little argument that blacks are the biggest sufferers of the slave mentality today.  Most blacks believe the government will take care of us from the cradle to the grave.  What they don't know is that the government carefully guards that ratio of black votes versus black sycophants, employing stealth weapons like placing abortion clinics mainly in black neighborhoods, ignoring crime in black neighborhoods, and essentially ushering blacks to prison.

Are Liberals Breaking Up with Obama?  [Scroll down]  At the end of the day, every one of these folks who rallied the votes for Obama — based on nothing but his skin color and teleprompted eloquence — have done far more damage to the cause of African-American parity than if they had refused to indulge their identity politics and had looked at the candidate's bona fides with a skeptical, purely investigative eye.

Which is the racial, profiling party?  Because liberals consciously notice the color, the ethnicity, the gender, the class, the physical ableness of an individual before anointment as candidate, friend, colleague, employee rather than the person the answer is... liberals!

Helen Of Oy!  With the state of Israel facing an existential threat, journalism's grand dame advocates ethnic cleansing as a Mideast solution.  Liberal intolerance has come out of the closet.

Does Obama Hate Black People?  With his actions as an Illinois state senator, U.S. senator, and now president, Barack Obama has rightfully earned his title as the most pro-abortion politician in American history ... The president has expanded the welfare state, the unemployment rolls, and advocated against school voucher programs, all issues which disproportionately affect blacks.  His position on abortion is perhaps the most alarming because it has become evident that he is using all the resources available to him to ensure that black babies here and abroad never reach their first breath.  Yet, in the midst of all of these issues, Black Americans continue to blindly support the president and his radical agenda.

This is what liberals think of black men:
Bill Maher Disappointed Obama Isn't A 'Real Black President' With A Gun In His Pants.  Last night [5/28/2010], Bill Maher lamented President Barack Obama's "professorial" personality, noting with a hint of betrayal in his voice that he was expecting a "real black president" — you know, the kind that "lifts up his shirt so they can see the gun in his pants."

Obama's Leadership Deficit.  Appearing on CNN with Anderson Cooper, film director Spike Lee implored President Obama to infuse his handling of the Gulf oil spill with more emotion.  Demonstrating the astute analysis we have come to expect from the director, Lee implored Obama to "one time, go off."  Perhaps he is of the same mind as Bill Maher, that the authentic black man is one who is always armed and resorts to violence and loud-talking when things do not go his way.

Fixed Race.  Comedian Bill Maher stereotypes black people as ghetto hoodlums and there's no outcry.  The long-standing racial double standard always shields the left.

The Error of Rand Paul:  The new left is appalled — appalled! — that Paul might suggest that in a free market society that supports private property rights, a business owner has the right to decide with whom he will or will not do business.  However, leftists are remarkably silent — even supportive of — community activists urging their black neighbors to "buy black;" Jewish and Islamic merchants who only buy from Jewish and Islamic venders; universities with segregated dormitories and graduation ceremonies; racial preferences in college admissions, or racially gerrymandered electoral districts.

Obama's Supreme Court Choice:  No Evangelicals Need Apply.  Justice Clarence Thomas was only the second black American to be nominated to the Supreme Court.  His confirmation hearings, however, were hardly the stuff of "let's make history."  Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Joe Biden, after promising Judge Thomas a fair hearing, enabled the worst kind of gutter rumor and "over the transom" innuendo to be introduced against the dignified and principled Clarence Thomas.  All of this was broadcast on national television.

Are Liberals Anti-WASP?  Not since Thurgood Marshall, 43 years ago, has a Democratic president chosen an African-American.  The lone sitting black justice is Clarence Thomas, nominated by George H. W. Bush.  And Thomas was made to run a gauntlet by Senate liberals.

From One Hispanic to Others — Arizona, You're Being Had By the Media.  Ask any American of every ethnicity how often they are asked for picture ID.  The answer is it happens on a daily basis — checking into hotels, using credit cards, at job interviews.  We should be used to this by now.  The only place we don't have to be documented is at the voting booth.  If voters had to prove their eligibility the Democrats would lose their base and their power.

Democrats reek of George Wallace.  Charges of intolerance are leveled routinely at those who question the administration's policies.  To listen to the accusers, one would think the entire history of racial discrimination and discord in this nation were properly laid at the feet of Republicans.  History teaches otherwise.

Hypocrisy in the Liberal Establishment.  It is absolutely clear that in 2010 conservative and Republican American blacks can't express their views without fear of reprisal and retaliation.  Is this the intent of the Civil Rights movement that blacks can only be free if they agree with the Democratic Party way of thinking?

Subsistence as Freedom.  The Democrats' political endgame requires citizens to accept subsistence as the new definition of freedom.  Democrats created a political and socioeconomic system where citizens are divided into racial, social, and economic classes.  Democrats concoct government programs, sold under the guise of compassion and equality, to an unwitting but fully complicit populace addicted to handouts, freebies, and benefits paid for by the sweat and equity of others.  Welcome to the 21st-century definition of freedom according to the Democrats.

Obama's Quiet War on Red States.  [Scroll down slowly]  The admonition goes that the poor will always be among us, but today's poor needn't become a permanent underclass, which has happened in big cities, especially those in blue states (think Newark, Philadelphia, Cleveland, and Detroit).  These poor — mostly black and Hispanic — are the prisoners of big-city Democratic machines, which, allied with leaders in minority and poor communities, have stymied the "up and out" dynamic that was once a feature of poverty in America.  The poor are always with today's Democrats because in exchange for subsidizing the poor, Democrats get whole blocs of votes in return — votes that perpetuate their political power.

Reversing race-based politics.  From the department of silver linings:  A bad ruling based on a bad law may lead to the bad law being overturned.  The bad ruling occurred after the black-majority town of Kinston, N.C., chose by a two-thirds vote — including a majority in black precincts — to switch to a nonpartisan voting system. ... In short, Ms. King said those black voters didn't have enough sense to understand their own interests when they chose to hold elections without party labels.

The Abolition of the Family:  [Scroll down slowly]  It is not by accident that over 70% of black children in America are born out of wedlock.  Almost 50% of young black men in America are unemployed.  And without a job, a man has no incentive to start or remain with his family.  The Obama administration has done next to nothing to stimulate those parts of the economy that provide employment for young men and, therefore, protect and strengthen the family.  This is the dirtiest and nastiest of not-so-secret secrets that no one seems to want to address.

Where are the black tea partiers?  Keith Olbermann has famously asked where the Black tea-partiers are.  The Associated Press writes that they are indeed out there.  They are brave to participate, too, given the hateful, racist rhetoric they report from liberals who want them to shut up and go away.

ACORN and the Ku Klux Klan:  ACORN does indeed operate like the Mafia, but it more closely resembles another organization that began as an affiliate of the Democratic Party, the Ku Klux Klan.  Aside from intimidating some bank executives, ACORN does not engage in violence, but like the KKK it has vote fraud as a top priority.  There have been two distinct organizations known as the Ku Klux Klan.  The modern-day KKK, with whom most people are familiar, was spawned in 1915 by the Hollywood epic Birth of a Nation, premiered at the White House by a Democrat president, Woodrow Wilson.  Cross-burning and other rituals were actually inspired by the movie.  The Klan came to dominate the Democratic Party so thoroughly that the 1924 Democratic National Convention was known as the "Klanbake." ... In some areas, leadership of the Ku Klux Klan and the Democratic Party were indistinguishable.

I have a dream, too.  Domestically, Obama is at odds with African Americans big time.  He allowed DC's successful school voucher program to lapse, which benefitted the Teachers' Union but not DC's African American children.  His Black voter base in California supported Proposition 8 (which defined marriage as the union of a man and a woman only).  Obama, on the other hand, seeks to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act.  Obama's staunch support of Planned Parenthood is baffling since Margaret Sanger, a eugenicist who targeted Black neighborhoods, founded that organization.

How the Left Reveals Itself:  I have recently come to the conclusion that leftists reveal their innermost thoughts when attacking those with whom they disagree.  This was perhaps illustrated most clearly when, after President Obama's recent State of the Union address:  MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews revealed that for an hour he forgot the president was black.

The Fraud of Progressive Nobility:  Forty years of Great Society-inspired welfarism have brought a 70 percent illegitimate birthrate among Blacks — a 218 percent explosion since the LBJ years.  The non-Hispanic white illegitimacy rate hovers below 12 percent.  Amid a finger-pointing blame fest, "minority advocates" still supply the crutches on which minorities lean.  For instance, affirmative action strengthens the haplessness in "protected classes" that motivated liberals to "protect" those classes in the first place.

Black History Month Should Be about Black History.  [Scroll down]  I mean, after all, it is a part of history.  But what is so wrong is that these race exploiters imply that current race relations in America have not come very far from the days of blacks being lynched.  Thus, Black History Month in reality is the liberal democrats' annual fundraiser and promo campaign for more entitlement programs.

Harry Reid's Negro Problem:  Democrats regularly say things that would end the career of any conservative who said them.  And still, blacks give 90 percent of their votes to the Democrats.

Soft Bigotry of Low Expectations:  "For an hour, I forgot that Obama was black," said Chris Mathews, the host of MS-NBC's "Hardball," after he finished watching President Obama's State of the Union address.  Did Mathews mean that he's not used to hearing from articulate blacks who sound just like educated whites?

Donny Deutsch, 'Coconut' Bigot, Typical Democrat.  In settings like MSNBC (but usually backstage) the term coconut (brown on the outside white on the inside) is generally used to castigate "Hispanics" who ignore marching orders barked by Democratic/MSM drill sergeants — same as "Oreo" for similarly uppity blacks.

Justice concludes black voters need Democratic Party.  Voters in this small city decided overwhelmingly last year to do away with the party affiliation of candidates in local elections, but the Obama administration recently overruled the electorate and decided that equal rights for black voters cannot be achieved without the Democratic Party.  The Justice Department's ruling, which affects races for City Council and mayor, went so far as to say partisan elections are needed so that black voters can elect their "candidates of choice" — identified by the department as those who are Democrats and almost exclusively black.

Justice Department Says Blacks in N.C. Town Can't Get Elected Without Democratic Party Label.  The U.S. Department of Justice is refusing to allow the town of Kinston, N.C., to hold nonpartisan local elections on the grounds that African Americans cannot win election without being listed as Democrats on the ballot.

Justice Department to blacks:  We know better.  Black voters across the land should be offended by the Obama Justice Department.  In a decision last month, the department effectively told black voters in the town of Kinston, N.C., that they are too stupid to choose their own elected officials unless the candidates are identified by party label.  In doing so, the department overruled Kinston's black voters themselves, who helped vote overwhelmingly to join most other North Carolina towns in holding nonpartisan local elections.

Libs Scold Black Conservatives.  The liberal media celebrates black achievement only when it comes from an I made it in spite of America's racism point of view.  Blacks who proclaim, "I achieved because America is the greatest land of opportunity on the planet for all who choose to go for it" are vilified by the media, branded Uncle Toms and traitors to their race.  The Left's message is clear.  To be authentically black and faithful to their race, blacks must not achieve on their own.  They must view themselves as eternal victims and reserve at least a minimal resentment against white America.

The Real History of Civil Rights.  [Scroll down]  When the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which would end segregation nationwide, came to Congress for a vote, a number of Senators did, in fact, threaten to filibuster the bill as Harry Reid stated.  What Harry Reid did not mention is that 80% of those Senators that threatened to filibuster the Civil Rights Act were Democrats.  In fact, 31% of Democrats in Congress voted against the Civil Rights Act of 1964.  That means about 1/3 of the Democrat Party refused to end segregation nationwide.

Reid's Teachable Moment.  Harry Reid is an obvious product of a government education that he and other Liberals are inflicting on the rest of America, and he should be the poster child for school choice.  In his recent comment regarding Republicans' efforts to block "healthcare" legislation, Reid invoked the ghosts of Democrats past, claiming that Republicans tried to block emancipation and civil rights for blacks.  I believe Reid gave America yet another teachable moment.

Reid Compares Opponents of Health Care Reform to Supporters of Slavery.  Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid took his GOP-blasting rhetoric to a new level Monday [12/7/2009], comparing Republicans who oppose health care reform to lawmakers who clung to the institution of slavery more than a century ago.

Harry Reid's main focus:  Harry Reid.  Harry Reid began the week in familiar fashion, by detonating an improvised literary device on the Senate floor.  It bombed.  Instead of merely scolding Republicans for their filibuster of the health-care legislation, he compared them to slaveholders and racists.

Peanut Farmer Allergies.  The Democrats know that without the support of black Americans their political party is doomed — at least until they can addict the immigrants who have arrived over our southern border.  Get them dependent on Fedzilla handouts, and the Democrats believe they can own their votes.  Meanwhile, the condition of black America continues to erode because our government keeps it so.  How sad.  How totally unnecessary.  But this is the heavy toll of genuflecting at the altar of Fedzilla for the past 50 years.

Why I am no longer an African American.  As a black woman in the Age of Obama, I don't see anything that reveals that Blacks in America have anything to celebrate. ... It is obvious that the inspiration for the classification of African American has nothing to do with those born of African descent.  It is a radical group of Black Americans who hold to the anti-American views of those shared by Jeremiah Wright, Professor Gates, Jesse Jackson, President Obama and many others who came out of the radical Civil Rights Movement.  Because of these things, I now part ways with the classification of African American because I hold no allegiance to Africa.

Who's a Racist?  Do Barack Obama and the Democrat Party foster racism and use it as a political tool?  The cold, hard truth that no one on the Left wants to admit is that they do.

Stop playing the race card.  As an American who happens to be black, I say to those who are playing the race card in the healthcare debate:  Stop it!  The very people who do all the hand-wringing about racism are the first to use it to divide us, and we are tired of it.  The racial denigration of those who show up at town meetings as "angry white folks" is disgusting.

Barack and Me.  I've been a committed conservative and, with the exception of one year where I listed myself as an independent, a registered Republican since 1978.  What makes that rather unremarkable statement more intriguing is that I'm an American who happens to be black.  Anyone who follows politics knows that puts me in rare and sometimes lonely company.

Democrats Jumping the Race-Card Shark..  A rather inconvenient fact, however, is that the only reported act of racial violence so far happened on Tuesday [9/15/2009] on a public school bus in St. Louis and the offenders were black, the victim white.  An apparently unprovoked attack on a high school student took place over — get this — a seat on the bus..  The irony is downright nerve-wrenching.  A black student beat the white student to the cheers of his black classmates and the bus driver supposedly did nothing to intervene.  KKK in reverse?  That's a lot more violence than Rosa Parks got over her seat on the bus.  In fact, Rosa Parks wasn't on the receiving end of anything more than arrogant stares.

Some Blacks Now Have Doubts About Obama.  According to the Pew Research Center, the president's approval rating nationwide is now 10 points lower than last April.  Included in this is a three-point drop in his approval among blacks.  You might say, Star, a drop in approval ratings among blacks from 95 percent to 92 percent is trivial.  But I say not so.  If we assume this reflects the 16 million blacks who voted for Obama last November, a three point shift means there are about a half million blacks who now have buyer's remorse.  This is meaningful.  You take real risks going against the establishment in black America.

The White-Racism Chorus.  Did Attorney General Eric Holder really want honest talk when in February he called for "frank conversations" about race?  "Honest" talk, as the MSM and much of the chattering Left defines it, consists of slamming most whites as racist. ...[Jimmy] Carter has concluded that Obama critics are "overwhelmingly" racist.

The race bullies:  When "communist" was the allegation of the day, it lost its sting in due course.  Today, in spite of sixty years of immense black progress since Martin Luther King and the Civil Rights laws, the media and Demagogues love to read "racism!" into the minds of ordinary, decent Americans.  It is pure a Stalinist tactic to shut up opposition.  It is done with malice aforethought as a power play.  For Democrats there are no "racists" on the Left, just revered old Ku Klux Klanners like Senator Robert Byrd.

Meet Your Lords and Masters.  It's bad enough that Robert Byrd is a former Exalted Cyclops of the KKK, but the earmark king of the Senate is also a 93 year old sick-bed senator who rarely makes it into work.  Unquestionably, he's too ill to pay attention to his job day-to-day, but you can count on his aides to wheel him in, beat the buzzards away from him with a stick and show him which lever to pull any time the Democrats need a key vote in the Senate.  Whatever may be said of Robert Byrd, one thing is for sure:  he doesn't belong in the Senate anymore, if he ever did in the first place.

Post mortem:
Sen. Robert Byrd not only was a KKK member but led his local Klan chapter.  A quick check of this morning's obituaries reveal that in the eyes of the traditional media, Byrd the Progressive Porker is much more important than Bob the Exalted Cyclops.  Byrd joined the Klan at the ripe young age of 24 — hardly a young'un by today's standards, much less those of 1944, when Byrd refused to join the military because he might have to serve alongside "race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds," according to a letter Byrd wrote to Sen. Theodore Bilbo at the height of World War II.

Good Riddance, Robert Byrd.  When Robert Byrd was a young man, he organized a local chapter of the Ku Klux Klan in his hometown of Crab Orchard and at the young age of 24 rose to the high office of "Exalted Cyclops."  He quickly climbed the KKK ranks, ascending all the way to "grand Kleagle," a powerful recruitment head.

Byrd Tributes Go Overboard.  [Scroll down]  The common interpretation is that Byrd's is a story of redemption.  A one-time Exalted Cyclops of the KKK, Byrd recruited some 150 members to the chapter he led — that's led, not "joined," by the way.  (If you doubt his commitment to the cause, try to recruit 150 people to do anything, never mind have them pay a hefty fee up front.)  Byrd filibustered the 1964 Civil Rights Act.  As Bruce Bartlett notes in his book "Wrong on Race," Byrd knew he would fail, but he stood on bedrock principle that integration was evil.  His individual filibuster, the second longest in American history, fills 86 pages of fine print in the Congressional Record.  "Only a true believer," writes Bartlett, "would ever undertake such a futile effort."

Misplaced eulogies for Robert Byrd.  After Robert Carlyle Byrd died on Monday while trying to struggle through yet another record-breaking term in the U.S. Senate, the obituaries either ignored or downplayed what made him interesting, his egomania and his racism.

Robert Byrd & His Racist Party.  Being a liberal means never having to say you're sorry.  No matter how egregious one's sins against the stated principles of American liberalism, American liberals will welcome the sinner back as long as he atones through service to American liberalism.  So convinced of the goodness of their own cause, liberals self-servingly view liberalism as an indemnity against past transgressions, as proven by this past year's beatifications of one senator who left a woman to suffocate in her own air pocket at Chappaquiddick and of his longtime colleague who served as a recruiter for the KKK.  And why wouldn't a former Klansman such as Byrd feel comfortable in the Democratic Party?

It's not racism, it's being an American.  Charges of racism are among the most serious that can be made in America because of our nation's history on race relations.  There is no doubt America has come a long way in healing past wounds, but there is certainly more to be done.  That is why I am outraged that Democrats today, including former president Jimmy Carter, are injecting race into the debate over President Obama's policies.

The 'Racism' Canard:  In the wake of Joe Wilson's crude outburst, many network commentators (and Jimmy Carter, of course) are weighing in on the new racism that supposedly explains 1) rising opposition to Obamacare and 2) the president's sinking polls. ... To prove their charge, those who allege racism would have to show empirically that the present angry rhetoric eclipses what was said about and done to Bush.  It does not yet.  We don't see the word "hate" used in mainstream publications like The New Republic and the Guardian, as it was during the Bush years.

Why I must be a racist.  Because I was concerned that Barack Obama associated with domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, I am a racist.  Because I think that Joe Wilson's "you lie" comment was true, but they way he said it and the venue he said it in was inappropriate, I am a racist.  Because I am worried that the health care plans pushed by President Obama will diminish the quality of medical care for my Caucasian parents and children (and end up raising their taxes too) I am a racist.

Dear White Liberal America:  Thank you very, very much.  You see us poor helpless inferior blacks (oh forgive me, I must be politically correct, "African Americans"), and you want to help us using your superior intellect.  After all, we could not possibly succeed in this racist, homophobic and greedy country without your assistance.

The Democrats' own history with race.  For decades, it has been a template of the major media that Republicans are the party of racism.  It repeats uncritically any charges of Republican racism, no matter how unfounded.  Democrats, on the other hand, are always given a pass whenever they commit racist offenses.  Even a cursory review, however, will show that the media template is totally contrary to history.

The Myth that Liberals Care About Hispanic Americans:  The liberals will tell you they're the best friends Hispanic immigrants have ever had because they believe anyone who manages to sneak across the border should be made into a citizen.  Meanwhile, Hispanic immigrants in this country who spent years waiting and spent thousands of dollars in fees to get through a bureaucratic nightmare because they loved and respected this country, are being played for chumps.

The Other 'Hispanic' Nominee.  Then-President George W. Bush, in 2001, nominated him to the prestigious U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.  Had Estrada secured the nomination — and had Republicans retained the White House in 2008 — many would have placed Estrada on the list of possible future Supreme Court justices.  He, not Sotomayor, could have become that court's first Hispanic justice.  Instead, the "minority-sensitive" Democrats treated him like a child molester.

Barbara Boxer Exposed as 'Racial'.   [The video clip in this article] contains an honest, gut level outburst from an indignant black man who has obviously reached the limit of his patience with liberal white condescension.

Davis hits party wall in Alabama.  As he embarks on his bid to become the first African-American governor of a Deep South state since Reconstruction, Rep. Artur Davis (D-Ala.) is meeting stiff resistance from an unlikely source:  key members of Alabama's Democratic establishment.

Obama's shameful silence.  [Scroll down]  When congressional Democrats recently doomed the Opportunity Scholarship Program for poor children in the District [of Columbia], the education president didn't say a word.  Of the 1,700 students, starting in kindergarten, in this private-school voucher program, 90 percent are black and 9 percent are Hispanic.

Dr. Frankenstein, Meet Barack Obama.  Those on the Left actually believe that those of us who don't see Barack Obama in the same flattering light they do must be racists.  I'm certain they won't believe me when I say I don't know any Republicans who dislike or distrust him because of his race, but it happens to be the truth.  How is it that liberals figure we're racist for not adoring Obama, but don't regard themselves as racists when they bellow their hatred of Clarence Thomas, Walter Williams, Thomas Sowell, Shelby Steele, Condi Rice, Michael Steele and Ward Connerly?

Why the GOP Can't Win With Minorities:  Today conservatism is stigmatized in our culture as an antiminority political philosophy.  In certain quarters, conservatism is simply racism by another name.  And minorities who openly identify themselves as conservatives are still novelties, fish out of water.

Are liberal Jews secular millenarians?  Why do liberal Jews constantly vote for power-hungry statists, when Jews have a history of persecution by all-powerful states?  Like Nazi Germany and Stalin's Soviet Union, just to name two.  It's not just liberal Jews.  Christians who don't really believe much in their faith also tend to lean Left.  In Britain that's been an open secret for decades.  It is a staple joke in novels and political commentary.  Much of the Church of England hierarchy has become agnostic or atheist, and also statist, socialist, and pro-Islamist.  One follows the other.

Why American Jews Vote so Liberal and Why They Shouldn't.  Time and time again, I read in websites and blogs around the internet the question and puzzling paradox posed by Gentiles who strongly support Israel, how can it be that so many Jews continue to blindly vote for ultra-liberal causes that are inherently ultra-critical of Israel and even subliminally of Jews.

Soros Unmasked.  We have learned that J Street is not the grassroots group it has made itself out to be; rather, it is but one anti-Israel organization that George Soros had founded and funded.  It isn't simply $750,000 for J Street to advance its (or rather, Soros's) Israel-bashing agenda.  There is also Human Rights Watch.  As many others have documented, Human Rights Watch is another exercise in false advertising. ... The pattern is clear here:  where there is a well-funded group seeking to undermine the U.S.-Israel relationship, delegitimize Israel, or push for America's retreat from the world, it's a good bet Soros is behind it.

5 Reasons Black Americans Should Give Up On The Democratic Party.  [Scroll down]  For a lot of black Americans, a vote for the Democratic Party is a vote to lose their job to an illegal alien, trap their kids in a lousy school, and get criminals released back into their neighborhood.  Even someone like Louis Farrakhan, who has campaigned for numerous Democrats over the years, is in favor of corporal punishment, building small businesses, and he believes that welfare is a trap that keeps black Americans mired in poverty.  Incidentally — it is.

It's time for the Jewish vote to defect from the Democratic Party.  The Republican upset victory in the special election for New York's heavily Jewish 9th Congressional District has set off alarm bells in Democratic political circles.  The White House is launching an outreach effort to American Jews to convince them that Mr. Obama is the best friend Israel has ever had in Washington.  If that were even remotely true, there would be no desperate need for outreach.

The Man Who Would Be God.  To this day, FDR holds a warm spot in the hearts of most Jews for reasons I can't begin to imagine.  There is nothing in FDR's record that shows he had positive feelings about Jews.  Some people have even suggested that, with his patrician background, he probably had a negative attitude.  But the fact remains that he refused to let the Jews aboard the St. Louis disembark and instead forced the ship and its passengers to return to Europe, back into the hands of the Nazis.  For good measure, FDR, although urged by many, also refused to bomb the railroad tracks leading to the concentration camps.

House Leadership Takes Suicidal Stand Against Its African-American Base.  A nationwide poll exclusively of African-Americans nationwide just released by the National Center for Public Policy Research found that 76 percent of African-Americans want action on climate change delayed until after the economy recovers.  The 800 African-Americans surveyed were overwhelmingly Democrat:  80 percent self-identified as Democrats, 67 percent self-reported being "strong" Democrats.  Only 4 percent self-identified as Republican.

The Editor says...
No matter what the Democrats do to the average black voter, he or she will probably never vote for another party. It doesn't matter that abortion predominantly kills black babies.  It doesn't matter that the always-increasing minimum wage hurts blacks more than anybody else.  Ask black people on the street corner why they are loyal to the Democrat party, and they'll tell you it is because the Democrats are the ones who are perpetuating the welfare state.  Black Americans apparently don't mind depending upon Uncle Sam for a handout.  Just keep sending the checks, and no questions will be axed.

Powerful Democrat Calls Illegal Aliens 'Free Loaders and Scam Artists'.  Most liberals regard illegal aliens as "Undocumented Democrats" and a veritable gold mine of opportunity for holding on to political power by coddling to those here unlawfully.  For that reason, most Democrat politicians have abandoned patriotic concern about homeland security, the rule of law, stability of the American economy and social order, and preservation of American language and culture.  In fact, one can search high and low for a liberal with a patriotic, pro-America stance on illegal immigration, and that search will usually be futile.

Gospel of dependence from National Urban League.  Shouldn't it embarrass black Americans that one the nation's largest and most prestigious civil rights organizations offers a long list of proposals to improve black life in our country, and every single proposal is a government program? ... There's not a single proposal that I could find in a several hundred-page report about improving black life that does not start with government.  The civil rights movement once was about freedom and liberation.  Now it's about government dependency.  We should be ashamed.

America Apologizes to Britain for Obama.  In 1998, Bill Clinton offered apologies on behalf of "all of America" for crimes of the past. ... Clinton was infamously dishonest and unrepentant about his own lies and crimes.  But Clinton was all too eager to apologize for America on account of crimes which "America" never committed.  Democrats, not Americans, were responsible for slavery and for Jim Crow.  Democrats in the North as well as the South won white votes by their racial bigotry.  Clinton might well, as the leader of the Democrat Party, have apologized to the Republican Party for having defended slavery, opposed the enfranchisement and true emancipation of blacks, and for having men like Robert "KKK" Byrd as the modern leader of Senate Democrats, for having placed Klansmen like Hugo Black and Tom Clark on the Supreme Court.

Modern Feminists and their Folly:  [Scroll down slowly]  But perhaps the saddest aspect of the failed sexual revolution is what's been done to the aspirations of young minority women, who've come to believe that success can only come from their bodies rather than their minds.  My daughter teaches sixth grade at an inner city school and was shocked to learn that her female students are obsessed with sex and their greatest ambition seems to be appearing in a hip hop video with a rap star.  These are the ones that have the rapper fully clothed mouthing obscenities surrounded by naked gyrating teenagers.

Back on Uncle Sam's Plantation.  A vast sea of perhaps well intentioned government programs, all initially set into motion in the 1960's, that were going to lift the nation's poor out of poverty.  A benevolent Uncle Sam welcomed mostly poor black Americans onto the government plantation.  Those who accepted the invitation switched mindsets from "How do I take care of myself?" to "What do I have to do to stay on the plantation?"  Instead of solving economic problems, government welfare socialism created monstrous moral and spiritual problems.  The kind of problems that are inevitable when individuals turn responsibility for their lives over to others.

Remember Gonzales and Estrada.  [Miguel] Estrada has a compelling life story, perhaps even more compelling than Sotomayor's.  He was born in Honduras and immigrated to America with a limited understanding of English.  He still succeeded as a law student, U.S. attorney and member of the Justice Department prior to his nomination for the D.C. court in 2001.  His bid ended, however, after a two-year filibuster by Senate Democrats.  Due to the D.C. court's influence, Estrada could have become the first Hispanic on the U.S. Supreme Court when vacancies cropped up during Bush's second term.  But Democrats would have no part of it.

Will Holder discuss these five racial issues?  Here are five racial matters Americans must talk about but liberals avoid like leprosy:  [#1]  The 1965 Moynihan Report:  Also known as "The Negro Family:  The Case for National Action," the report noted the increase in the absence of fathers in the nation's black households and then predicted, with chilling accuracy, what the consequences would be if the situation got worse.  It did:  some 25 percent of black children were born out of wedlock; today that figure is close to 70 percent.  Black leaders in 1965 dismissed Moynihan and his report.  So much for honest, gutsy dialogue.

The Blood of Patriots and Tyrants.  Even the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was opposed by 35% of congressional Democrats, who controlled congress at the time.  It passed only because it was supported by 81% of Republicans.  Today, 95% of the black vote goes to Democrats who opposed the Civil Rights Act of 1964.  In 2008, 68% of the "youth vote" went to Barack Hussein Obama.  Neither would be true had either known anything about history.  Now they must learn history the hard way.

Democrats: The Missing Years.  The DNC website section labeled "Party History," … is in fact scrubbed clean of the not-so-little dirty secret that fueled Democrats' political successes for over a century and a half and made American life a hell on earth for black Americans. … So what's missing?  There is no reference to the number of Democratic Party platforms supporting slavery.  There were six from 1840-1860.  There is no reference to the number of Democratic presidents who owned slaves.  There were seven from 1800-1861.  There is no reference to the number of Democratic Party platforms that either supported segregation outright or were silent on the subject.  There were 20, from 1868-1948.  There is no reference to "Jim Crow" as in "Jim Crow laws," nor is there reference to the role Democrats played in creating them.

The GOP Is the Party of Civil Rights.  Everyone knows this, but it's worth repeating:  The Republican Party is the party of Abraham Lincoln and was established in 1854 to block the expansion of slavery.  The Democratic Party was the party of slavery:  Its two founders, Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson, owned large numbers of slaves, and every party platform before the Civil War defended the institution unequivocally.  After the war, it was the Republican Party that rammed through the 13th, 14th and 15th amendments to the Constitution over Democratic opposition.

False pride and the liberal imagination:  Is the election of Barack Obama a victory for racial tolerance and equality?  Or is Obama just a clever politician surfing the fathomless supply of white guilt, like the three famous Revs --- Jesse, Al and J-Rite?  Is Obama the bearer of post-racial forgiveness, or is he just good at the ole' slice and dice?  In a way it doesn't matter.  To liberals a black president equals goodness and virtue.

Obama And His Silly White Women Behind Him.  If anybody really believes that Race is not an issue in this 2008 election, then they are grossly deceived, because that denial is being used as a shield to deflect criticism from the Obamaniacs when they spew out their accusations of racism against whites and anybody else who won't go along with their predominantly black agendas, which many have yet to understand their agendas have been in place for decades.  And they have made no secret that those plans are in place to the exclusion of everybody else except the blacks and all those whom they now call "people of color."  But, is that what the majority of Americans want for America?  I believe not!

Democrats Should Fear the 'Brady Effect'.  As legions of Barack Obama's supporters (both inside and outside the mainstream media) wait with giddy anticipation to celebrate victory on November 5, they can't seem to block creeping doubt from their minds.  What if the outcome doesn't all fall neatly into place like their polls project?  How can such a scenario be explained?  Their answer is an old canard:  Latent racism in America.

Dem Playbook Shows Dirty Tactics.  Documents obtained by Townhall show the Democratic Party encouraged party activists to accuse the GOP of intimidating minorities on Election Day even if no evidence of intimidation existed in the 2004 presidential election.  The tactic is being used again in 2008, this time to downplay fraud charges against a predominantly minority non-profit supporting Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.

Are Christians Imprisoned By Obama Blackness and White Guilt?  Let's speak truthfully.  As I see it, Obama would never have been elected to this prestigious position, had it not been for the white vote.  Regardless of how many times Obama protested that (his) Race was not an issue in this 2008 Presidential election, he played the black folk like a fiddle.

Splitting blacks from white Americans was always part of the plan, according to Bill Ayers himself, and according to his radical buds like J-Wright. … So the Left had to find a new, miserable proletariat, and right there were the inner city blacks, uprooted from their Christian families and work ethic in the South, often feeling lost and vulnerable.  That's where Black Liberation Theology came in and the Black Muslims.  That's where ACORN recruited its heavies.  That's where the Democrats get their most obedient voters to this very day.

An Open Letter to Black Obama Supporters.  In two previous notably liberal administrations, socialist ideas were entertained:  Bloat government to its largest degree and cause people to become dependent upon it for their livelihood.  Under Franklin Delano Roosevelt the longest lasting experiment with Socialism was instituted.  Social Security has now become what people think of as a stream of money flowing from the government.  Perhaps in Urban America you know a number of people who get Social Security benefits who aren't even retired (which is what it was originally intended for) or disabled, or even in legitimate need of it.  Every check of Social Security that goes to an undeserving recipient plunges Black America into deeper poverty.

Democratic Congressman Warns Jews, Blacks to Beware of Palin.  Florida Rep. Alcee Hastings on Wednesday [9/24/2008] warned two minority groups to beware of Sarah Palin because "anybody toting guns and stripping moose don't care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks."  Hastings, who is black and a Democrat, made the comment in Florida at a panel discussion hosted by the National Jewish Democratic Council.

Obama Is Stoking Racial Antagonism.  I understand the rough and tumble of politics.  But Barack Obama — the supposedly postpartisan, postracial candidate of hope and change — has gone where few modern candidates have gone before.  Mr. Obama's campaign is now trafficking in prejudice of its own making.  And in doing so, it is playing with political dynamite.

How Can a "Fellow Black Republican" Oppose Obama?  Do you know that Democrats opposed the 13th, 14th and 15th amendments to the Constitution — abolishing slavery, granting citizenship rights to newly freed slaves, and guaranteeing the right to vote (at least on paper) to blacks, respectively?  Do you know that most of the politicians who stood for segregation were Southern Democrats?  Do you know that the Ku Klux Klan was founded by Democrats, one of whose goals was to stop the spread of the Republican Party?  Do you know that, as a percentage of the party, more Republicans than Democrats voted for the Civil Rights Act of 1964?

Democrats Have Kept Racism Alive.  There was a big problem with Barack's mea culpa speech in Philadelphia, defending his racist pastor, Jeremiah White.  He failed to mention that over 300,000 white Americans gave their lives to end slavery.  He didn't mention that in 1854, abolitionists left the Democratic Party and founded the Republican Party specifically for the purpose of ending slavery and giving equal rights to all those who had been in bondage.

Obama the Magic Negro-Gate:  When will the GOP — on the issue of race — go on the offense?  After all, for 100 years, the Democratic Party showed its tone deafness to the rights of blacks.  Democrats opposed the 13th Amendment (freeing the slaves), the 14th Amendment (making ex-slaves citizens) and the 15th Amendment (that, on paper at least, gave blacks the right to vote).  Democrats founded the Ku Klux Klan — some even call it the "terrorist wing of the Democratic Party."  And a greater percentage of Republicans than Democrats voted for the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Get Back in the Kitchen, Sarah!  If you're a liberal icon like Jimmy Carter, you can refer to Barack Obama as a "black boy" without anyone batting an eye.  If you're a liberal like Joe Biden, you can "praise" Obama as clean and articulate or joke about Indians and Dunkin Donuts' with barely a whisper of disapproval from the monolithically liberal mainstream media.  If you're a liberal cartoonist like Ted Rall, you can caption Condoleezza Rice as the president's "House Nigga."  If you're a liberal talk show host like Sly Sylvester, you can refer to her as Aunt Jemima. … And the quickest path to the top of the liberal class is to ridicule Justice Clarence Thomas.

The Party Of Anti-Achievement.  [Sarah Palin's] selection should have been celebrated from sea to shining sea.  But the coordinated attack on Palin and her family proves once again that the Democrat Party is the antithesis of everything they claim to champion.  They ARE anti-woman and anti-minority, that is unless that celebrated woman and minority are Democrats.

Clinton's diminishing of black voters.  [Scroll down]  Yet here is Clinton dancing all over stereotypes.  There is no way you can say in the same sentence, "hard-working Americans, white Americans," without diminishing black Americans as lazy. ... All the love built up between the Clintons and black folks became love and war when a black man stood between them and their castle.

The Slavery Apology Backfire:  News flash: the Democrats will not be wasting any time at their Denver Convention apologizing for slavery — or segregation either.  They aren't even ashamed enough to apologize for giving a double thumbs-up to lynching African-Americans.

The Tragedy of Campaign '08.  Democrats have kept their liberal and black base together by claiming that their policy differences with Republicans over entitlements and other domestic matters are the consequence of the alleged racism of white Republicans.  It is a false charge but it has helped the Democrats at the polls, even as it has made many blacks unnecessarily sensitive about their minority status.

Planned Parenthood Puts A Hit Out On Black Children.  Planned Parenthood Facilities around the country have been accused of accepting contributions from racist donors.  A group of concerned people conducted their own "sting" operation which has exposed a willingness of Planned Parenthood employees to accommodate racist donors.  In fact, clinic personnel in Ohio, New Mexico, Idaho and Oklahoma have been captured on tape pandering to a potential donor with a racist agenda.

Bamboozled Obama's big black lie:  It was the Republican Party that fought for the freedoms of blacks in Congress following the conclusion of the Civil War.  State chapters of the Republican Party were started by blacks in most southern states.  The first black congressional members, some of whom had been former slaves only months previous, were all Republican.

Two Cheers for Obama.  As author Bruce Bartlett details in Wrong on Race:  The Democratic Party's Buried Past, Democrats have a long history of anti-black statements and sentiments that far exceed the so-called code words of Nixon's alleged "Southern strategy," in which the phrase "law and order" somehow magically converted white resentment into electoral votes.  Too bad this primary's rhetoric was not that benign.

Visitors from a Weird Planet:  Back in the 1960s, the Democrats went in for social engineering in a big way.  They concentrated particularly on black Americans.  One of the first things they did was to increase welfare, but only to those homes that didn't have men living in them.  That not only created dependency on the part of black women and children, but, inevitably, led young blacks to grow up without male authority figures around to keep them in line.  The results weren't too great for the grown-ups, either.

Digging Up Democratic Skeletons:  Democrats ... supported slavery, opposed civil rights legislation, instituted the "Black Codes," and created the Jim Crow system.  The Republican Party, in contrast, was founded in opposition to slavery, and supported post-Civil War and Civil Rights Movement-era legislation.

Obama's Trap:  The truth is, liberals don't find Reverend Wright shocking.  Liberals find themselves nodding in silent agreement with much of what he preaches.  Furthermore, they aren't offended by the notion of rewarding a domestic terrorist from the 1960's with professorship at a major state university.  Even more damaging is the notion that they really don't practice zero tolerance on racism and bigotry — they're happy to ignore it if it's being practiced by part of their base.

It's Time to Call the Democrats on Race Demagogy.  The Reverend Jeremiah Wright is a very popular preacher of racial anger in Chicago.  So is Al Sharpton, Louis Farrakhan, Cynthia McKinney, Professor Nikki Giovanni at Virginia Tech and far too many others.  They always get favorable media coverage, because they are speaking for the Left.  If you look at conservative blacks, you see exactly the opposite….  So the Left, and its mouthpiece the Democrats, have chosen the destructive demagogues and not the peace makers.  So be it.  But it's high time to call them on it.

Did someone mention Jeremiah Wright?

Racially Stacked New Deal.  [President Franklin Delano] Roosevelt was the first president to put a Klansman on the U. S. Supreme Court — a move that Woodrow Wilson is never known to have contemplated.  Although FDR proclaimed ignorance of this colorful aspect of Hugo Black's past when asked about it in the 1930s, the justice himself offered a far different recollection in a 1968 memo.

The Democratic Party's Stealth War On Black Americans:  If you look back through American history and find a black American being enslaved, lynched, railroaded, or persecuted, 99 times out of a hundred, you'll find a Democrat behind it.  The hated and feared KKK?  Throughout most of its history, it was little more than a hooded, thuggish arm of the Democratic Party.

The Real Agenda of Black Liberation Theology.  In an article in the Washington Post, unnamed ministers commented that black liberation theology "encourages a preacher to speak forcefully against the institutions of oppression…"  And what might these institutions be?  They are not specified.  But it is safe to say that they are not the welfare state or the Democratic Party.  Given that black liberation theology is a product of the dreary leftist politics of the twentieth century, the very vehicles employed by the left to advance statism certainly can't be the culprits.  For the left, black liberation theology makes for close to a perfect faith.  It is a political creed larded with religion.  It serves not to reconcile and unite blacks with the larger cultural, but to keep them separate.

Insulting Blacks:  Commemorating a key point in American history is one thing, but a white person mimicking black dialect is demeaning and insulting.  And, if it buys her votes from those in attendance, not much flattering can be said about them. … Mrs. Clinton is not alone in demeaning talk to black people; she's in good company with Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, who talk of "going from the outhouse to the White House" and "from disgrace to amazing grace" and other such nonsense.

The Clinton strategy?  Having polarized blacks and whites, the Democratic primary campaign was already becoming sleazy.  And now that Latinos have been added to the mix, it's become surreal.  We're being told that Latinos won't vote for Barack Obama because he's black.  The implication is that Latinos are racist.

Primary Colors:  In 2001, President Bill Clinton was honored as the nation's "first black president" by the Congressional Black Caucus.  Ironically, his co-president and now Sen. Hillary Clinton is trying mightily to keep Sen. Barack Obama from becoming the genuine article, and both have become embroiled in a controversy over race and who should get credit for the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Bill's Red Neck:  In the acrid aftermath of the South Carolina primary, I think it is safe to say that novelist Toni Morrison was dealing in fiction when she pronounced Bill Clinton our first black president.  After watching him huff and puff up the issue of race in a way that Americans have not seen since the presidential campaigns of the late George Wallace, the former Boy President, rather than being our first black president, is our second redneck president.

Bill Clinton Plays the Race Card — and Loses.  By invoking Jesse Jackson's name, Clinton attempted to portray Obama as the "black candidate."  Clinton knows that the race-driven Jackson polarizes people.  By branding Obama as Jackson-esque, Clinton hoped to peel away Obama's support from white voters and thus — pardon the expression — ghettoize Obama's candidacy.

Stung by political correctness.  Hilarously, the frontrunners for the US Democrats presidential candidacy — Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama — are now enmeshed in a web of political correctness spun by their party's reliance on race and gender politics for much of its popular appeal.

What an Obama Presidency Would Mean:  The Democratic Party has for years given lip service to the African-American community.  They have talked about prominence without fulfilling the promise.  They patronize without empowering.  Worst of all, this unholy bond has done more to decimate and deplete our community than slavery and Jim Crow laws ever could have accomplished.  This allegiance has destroyed millions of our children; children created but denied access to the American dream, children aborted.  The Democrat Party has been a major contributor to the African American slippery slide down the slope of depravity.

Liberals demean blacks again.  It is obvious that liberals are hanging onto a nostalgic vision of blacks as a victim group in need of protection by liberals.  Nothing could be more patronizing and ultimately dehumanizing.  Blacks are not a endangered species, and certainly don't need liberals fretting about where they choose to live their lives, as if they were a herd of Arctic caribou.

Hillary's Plantation Politics:  It was Clinton who introduced race tension into the election.  After Obama told a crowd in South Carolina at the time of Martin Luther King's birthday that the slain civil rights leader's crusade was not a "false hope," Clinton stepped in to point out that President Lyndon Johnson (the white patron) got the Civil Rights Act passed.  And then, of course, the senator's surrogate, husband Bill, minimized Obama's landslide victory in South Carolina as a black thing, pointing out that Jesse Jackson also did well there in 1984 and 1988.

Bill Clinton is not black.  It seems odd that I would have to make that statement; I have nothing against Bill Clinton, but I do have something against those who, for whatever reason, have convinced themselves that Clinton is not only black, but was also, "The First Black President."

Obama's Oblique Race Card.  While Republican candidate Mike Huckabee has gained the most media attention for using religion to promote his candidacy, Barack Obama has made the most effective use of speech patterns from American church sermonizing.

Black Dreams, White Liberals.  The analogy Clinton was implying was obvious:  I'm Lyndon Johnson, unlovely doer; he's Martin Luther King, charismatic dreamer.  Vote for me if you want results.  Forty years ago, that arrangement — white president enacting African American dreams — was necessary because discrimination denied blacks their own autonomous political options.  Today, that arrangement — white liberals acting as tribune for blacks in return for their political loyalty — is a demeaning anachronism.  That's what the fury at Hillary was all about, although no one was willing to say so explicitly.

Bill Has A 'Dream'.  Bill Clinton showed yesterday [1/21 or 1/20 ??] why he made it into the book "The Art of Napping."  During an appearance at the Convent Avenue Baptist Church in Harlem, the former president was caught nodding off.  Clinton was there during a service to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., while his wife was nearby at Abyssinian Baptist Church, where she was endorsed by its minister, Rev. Calvin Butts.

Bill gets some shut-eye at MLK day event.  He's been a pit bull when it comes to Barack Obama, but yesterday all Bill Clinton could manage was a cat nap.  And it was, to say the least, poorly timed.  According to the New York Post, Clinton took a snooze in the middle of a service to honor the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. at the Convent Avenue Baptist Church in Harlem on Sunday.

Blaspheming Hillary plays up to Harlem Baptists.  How can these parishioners sing "What A Friend We Have In Jesus" while at the same time shaking hands and clapping applause for the devil's agenda?  That's what goes on when Hillary steps inside a Christian sanctuary — it's called anathema.  It's known in biblical terms as "hypocrisy."

Racial Role Reversal:  When the accuser in the Duke case charged rape, the district attorney — in the midst of a tough primary election — saw an opportunity to curry favor with Durham's black community and exploit the town-gown tension found in every college town.  He ran with it, inflaming public opinion against the accused at every opportunity.

Did someone mention the Duke Lacrosse Case?

Lott avenges media double standard.  Just days before the recent elections, Congressman John Lewis (D-Ga.) and former Congressman, Ambassador and Mayor Andrew Young lent their voices to a radio ad designed to promote the African-American Democratic candidate for chairman of Fulton County, Georgia's largest.  The ad partly said and partially hinted that should the Republican candidate be elected, blacks would see their lives returned to the days of being fire-hosed in the streets, among other Jim Crow-type sufferings.

The Importance Of Being Ernesto: After Hurricane Katrina, Democrats exploited a natural disaster that devastated predominantly white and black areas in both Louisiana and Mississippi as an example of Bush administration racism.  National Committee Chairman Howard Dean marked the disaster's anniversary by charging that "Katrina ended any effective ability by Republicans to appeal to African-Americans."

Bamboozled Obama's big black lie:  It was the Republican Party that fought for the freedoms of blacks in Congress following the conclusion of the Civil War.  State chapters of the Republican Party were started by blacks in most southern states.  The first black congressional members, some of whom had been former slaves only months previous, were all Republican.

Low black voter turnout — who's to blame?  Twice as many blacks, according to a recent Pew Research Center report, now say they have little or no confidence in the voting system, compared to 2004.  And 29 percent of blacks believe their vote will not be accurately tallied, compared to 8 percent of whites. … But who told blacks that devious Republicans steal their votes?  Jesse Jackson, perhaps the most widely quoted "black leader," accused election officials in 2000 of stealing the black vote.

Selective race-baiting.  Going back to the Nixon era, Republicans have gained office in the South not because of their record on national defense or abortion or taxes but because every conservative victory is proof of Southern racism successfully exploited. … There is no fairness, no balance.  There is only the rational conclusion that the "news" media have decided once again that one party must be supported and the other must be defeated.

Preserving a vision:  Both the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 had a higher percentage of Congressional Republicans voting for their enactment than the percentage of Congressional Democrats.  You can check it out in The Congressional Record.  As for black economic advances, the most dramatic reduction in poverty among blacks occurred between 1940 and 1960, when the black poverty rate was cut almost in half, without any major government programs of the Great Society kind that began in the 1960s.

Hey, Liberals!  Lecture me about racism when you've stopped creating more of it.  All of their theories, of course, are predicated on the idea that Tennesseans, and all Southern conservatives, are troglodytic racists who are boorish enough to vote against a man because he's black and simultaneously sophisticated enough to pick up on very subtle coded political messages about his race.  I just don't buy it.

Why Liberals Still Think Like The KKK.  When the party of left-wing America founded the Ku Klux Klan they did so because they wished to seize the rights of an entire people group, intimidate them into voting for the candidates they decided, and for anyone so messy as to get in the way they became people who did not deserve to live.  One of the sitting members of the Unites States Senate who participated in Klan activity still sits seated by the same party that founded the Klan.  His name is Robert Byrd.

Cultural Whiplash:  Take for example the remarks, a couple of years ago, of the long-time senator from the great state of West Virginia, Robert Byrd.  Old Bob, the former Ku Klux Klan member, used the "N" word a couple of times while being interviewed on television.  Now, you might think that all hell broke loose; that the Washington Post headlined the event with a front-page story (upper half), or that Dan Rather and the CBS News opened their broadcast with Dan tearing his garments in protest.  Alas, if you thought that you'd be wrong.  You see, Bob Byrd is a neo-Marxist Democrat, and, well, things are just different with those folks, and one of things that are different is that they get a pass when it comes to the charge of "racism," even when they are "racists."

History of America's Racist Left:  Bilbo, Faubus, Wallace — all the memorable political bigots were Democrats, not Republicans.  Today, a remnant of that Democratic Party survives in West Virginia Senator Robert Byrd, who can boast of having served as both Majority Leader in the Senate and Exalted Cyclops in the Ku Klux Klan.

The Republicans Passed the 1964 Civil Rights Act.  the chief opponents were Democrat Senators Sam Ervin, of later Watergate fame, Albert Gore Sr., and Robert Byrd. Senator Byrd, a former Klansman whom Democrats still call "the conscience of the Senate", filibustered against the civil rights bill for fourteen straight hours before the final vote.  The House of Representatives passed the bill by 289 to 126, a vote in which 79% of Republicans and 63% of Democrats voted yes.

The Decline of Affirmative Action:  On February 8, 1964, Congressman Howard W. Smith [Democrat] of Virginia made a colossal miscalculation in the House of Representatives.  In an attempt to block the CRA, he suggested inserting the word "sex" after the word "religion" whenever it appeared in Title VII, which guaranteed "fair" employment practices.  By tying it to the then controversial women's movement, Smith hoped to kill the Civil Rights Act.

Byrd is about to be the longest-serving senator.  Byrd admits his obituary will include a personal blemish — his time spent early in his life as part of the Ku Klux Klan and the more than 14-hour filibuster against the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

Fighting dirty for the black vote.  Donna Brazile is uneasy.  She has noticed something highly threatening to her party, and she's sounding the alarm.  In a column for Roll Call newspaper, Brazile, Al Gore's campaign manager, warns her fellow Democrats that Republicans are seeking to make inroads into the African-American vote.  "Once they (black voters) start listening to Republicans, some may even like what they hear."

ACORN:  The largest radical group in America, with 175,000 dues-paying member families, and more than 850 chapters in 70 US cities.  Implicated in numerous reports of fraudulent voter registration, vote-rigging, voter intimidation, and vote-for-pay scams during the 2004 election.  Maintains close ties to organized labor.

Democrats Plan Race-Based Campaign Against Black Candidate in Maryland.  Democrats plan a race-based campaign against a candidate who aims to be Maryland's first black man elected to the U. S. Senate, according to a confidential Democratic Party campaign document obtained by The New York Sun.  The target of the emerging smear campaign is Michael Steele, the Republican nominee for a seat vacated by Paul Sarbanes, a liberal Democrat who has represented Maryland in the Senate for 30 years.

The credibility of black conservatism.  Liberals, particularly black liberals, will claim this incident simply confirms what they have known all along. … In their view, liberalism is coded into black DNA.  It is a genetic impossibility for a black to actually believe that government should be limited and that every person, regardless of circumstance, must take personal responsibility for his or her own life.

The recurring politics of race exploitation.  There are far too many people, in their ideological confusion, who believe conservatism is inherently racist.  That's presumably why they don't feel they're required to produce evidence to prove their claims.  They've already tried and convicted conservatives of racism; the particular infractions they cite are merely symptomatic of their prejudice.

Stop and think:  Part III.  No special interest group within the Democratic party has as much influence — domination might be a better word — as the teachers' unions.  The top priority of the National Education Association and the American Federation of Teachers is their members' jobs. ... Parents may think that public schools exist to educate their children but, to the teachers' unions, these schools exist to provide their members with jobs, with iron-class tenure, and with pay increases based on seniority, not performance.  If maintaining that status quo means sacrificing the education of a whole generation of young blacks, the teachers' unions will do it.

Failing their own:  I'm thinking of a cabal of radical legislators who don't reflect the views of average Americans or even the interests of their own constituents.  They use wedge issues, play the race card and push their party to the ideological extreme.  They collude with outside activists, many of whom use religion as a Trojan horse for a radical political agenda.  Sound like those perennial paladins of villainy, the congressional GOP?  Guess again.  This is the Congressional Black Caucus.

The Attacks on Condoleezza Rice:  The attacks on Condoleezza Rice by some of the Democrats is something to behold.  It's been nearly half a century since a white person, any white person, dared criticize a black person.  And the criticism here is not polite.  It is about as harsh as it gets in the public arena — repeatedly calling a person in a high level government position a bald-faced liar goes way beyond a difference of opinion.  It is even more unusual not to hear a loud chorus of black people and black organizations, supported by the national media, coming to her defense.  Most of the time, there is a black organization or black person on every corner poised to scream racism whenever a white person criticizes a black person.  Where is Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, the NAACP, the Congressional Black Caucus, and others?

What about the Religious Left?:  For years the Reverend Jesse Jackson has asserted that political engagement from the pulpit is an essential part of the church's moral responsibility.  In 1988, Jackson's presidential campaign was financed in part with cash donations openly collected in black churches.

The All American skin game:  How'd we get here?  Well, that's a long story.  But let's start with Bush's victory in 2000, which presented a real dilemma for Democrats who'd spent the 1990s playing the race card like it was an expiring coupon. … Having been shellacked by this approach to politics for so long, many Republicans have bought into it. … If the standard created by Democrats is that ideological diversity is meaningless, and only skin color and gender count, your best shot at putting conservatives on the court is to find blacks, Hispanics and women who agree with your philosophy.

Of Ants and Immigrants:  Of course, since these immigrants are largely uneducated, largely poor migrants coming here to make a better living, they will give their loyalty to whomever offers them the most — which means their children will be loyal Democrats because the Republicans cannot compete with Democrats when it comes to booty doled from the public treasury.  Who can blame them?  Conservatism is for those with a greater stake in society.  These people came here for economic reasons, and the Democrats will give them more.

A tale of two incumbents in Georgia.  For years, the GOP has felt that it was under-represented in Georgia's U.S. congressional delegation.  In a state that voted overwhelmingly for George W. Bush twice, the congressional districts had been gerrymandered by the Democratic General Assembly to provide more Democratic seats that demographics realistically allotted.

Don't let Democrats get away with race-baiting.  There they go again:  The Democrats are race-baiting — attempting to suggest that the Republicans purposely excluded or miscounted the votes of African-Americans in the 2004 election.  And why not?  It worked so well last time around.  The myth that African American votes went uncounted in Florida has achieved the status of conventional wisdom — never mind the little detail that it is completely false.

Senator Reid only betrays his ignorance.  I was around during [Supreme Court Justice Clarence] Thomas' 1991 confirmation hearings.  I remember that black Americans overwhelmingly supported his nomination.  I was told about the focus group meetings where the Democrats discovered that they could discredit Thomas by focusing on his marriage to a white woman, and by labeling him unqualified.  After that, every time a Democrat appeared on TV, references to Thomas' white wife and charges that he was unqualified poured out of their mouths.  The Democrats tapped into a latent river of racism.  It worked.

Speaking of Liberal Disrespect for Blacks:  Even if you don't want to characterize some of these infernal liberal cartoons lampooning and demeaning Condoleezza Rice as racist, could we at least agree that white liberals treat blacks disrespectfully when they engage in such expressions?  Don't they just assume they will get a pass when they refer to Dr. Rice as "Aunt Jemima" and Secretary Powell as an Uncle Tom?  What makes them think they can say such garbage with impunity?

Dean and the Democrats are frozen in a time warp.  Surely [Democratic National Committee] Chairman [Howard] Dean knows that our secretary of state is an African-American woman from Alabama.  Or that there are now three black CEOs of Fortune 500 companies.  I wonder if he appreciates that the percentage of black households earning over $75,000 a year has more than quadrupled over the last 40 years.  Or that there are now over 1 million blacks in this country with advanced degrees.  Perhaps Dean didn't take notice that 1.5 million blacks voted for George W. Bush in 2004 — double the black vote that he got in 2000.

More nuance and flipflops.  The Democratic Party keeps agonizing over why it lost the election and how to recover.  Let me suggest this:  Quit undermining the electoral process in the name of protecting it.  And quit exploiting African-American voters by stirring fear in their hearts over fraudulent claims that Republicans want to disenfranchise them.

The Democratic party:  Modern day slave master.  The Democratic Party, the liberal "mainstream" media and the rest of the cultural elites are having a very hard time handling Dr. Rice's rise to power.  They've waged a disgraceful, racist and cowardly back-door assault against her.  Why?  Little Ms. Condoleezza has wandered away from the plantation.  She refuses to slave in the cotton fields of "progressive" ideology.

Why Democrats are tagged as the party without values:  To most Americans, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are race-baiting demagogues.  Yet they are heroes to the Democratic Party.  Most Americans do not see their country as the bigoted and racist nation regularly depicted by both black and white Democratic leaders.  To most Americans, a man who wears women's clothing to work is a pathetic person in need of psychotherapy.  To the Democratic Party, he is a man whose cross-dressing is merely another expression of multiculturalism.

When liberals play the race card:  Look at the treatment of prominent black Republicans like National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice and Secretary of State Colin Powell.  Liberal critics pull no punches in using race to criticize them.  Political cartoonists Pat Oliphant and Jeff Danziger drew political cartoons accentuating Dr. Rice's black features and depict her speaking in rural Southern dialect.  Garry Trudeau referred to her as "Brown Sugar" in his comic strip, "Doonesbury."

Conservatives, liberals and blacks:  If there is one general characteristic of white liberals, it's their condescending and demeaning attitude toward blacks.

Is the Democratic Party racist?  The Democrats have successfully maintained their power base on the backs of black people.  Without them, the Democrats would go the way of the Whigs.

Dems fire minorities without a conscience:  The Democratic Party is taking blacks for granted.  Again.  The Associated Press is reporting that the Democratic National Committee laid off 10 black staffers this week.

"Black History Month" Renamed To Promote Anti-War Agenda:  Liberal Democrats in New York City have renamed Black History Month to reflect the anti-war sentiments expressed by protest groups and political leaders such as presidential candidate Al Sharpton.

Democrats:  Party of Angry White Men?  Where are all the good ole' boys?  They sure aren't over at the White House, where Ann Veneman, Gale Norton, Elaine Chao, Rod Paige, Colin Powell, Norm Mineta, Mel Martinez and Christy Todd Whitman make up almost half the president's cabinet, along with inner-circle advisors Karen Hughes and Condoleeza Rice.  And they aren't at the Supreme Court, where Republicans appointed the first woman and second black man.  And they certainly weren't at GOPAC, where JC Watts and a cabinet of women now hold the GOP future, running the entire Republican farm system.  Contrast this to the blatant tokenism of the Clinton cabinet which boasted such luminaries as Janet Reno, Hazel O'Leary and Jocelyn Elders.  Apparently, the battle to see which party makes the real commitment to a color blind meritorious nation is over.  And Republicans won.

Conservatives, liberals and blacks:  According to a Washington Times story (July 14, 2004), Democratic hopeful Sen. John Kerry, in a speech about education to a predominantly black audience, said that there are more blacks in prison than in college.  "That's unacceptable, but it's not their fault," he said.  Do you think Kerry would also say that white inmates are faultless?  Aside from Kerry being factually wrong about the black prison population vs. the black college population, his vision differs little from one that holds that blacks are a rudderless, victimized people who cannot control their destiny and whose best hope depends upon the benevolence of white people.



The Coretta Scott King Funeral

This event took place in February 2006, but the information below is presented here in an effort to keep it from going down the media memory hole.  Mrs. King's funeral was called Wellstone II because of its striking similarity to the funeral for Senator Paul Wellstone in October 2002, where a solemn ceremony was turned into a cheap political rally benefiting the Democratic Party, just because the major news organizations were there to cover it.  (See Honor & Civility, RIP.)

Video:  Coretta Scott King Funeral Turned Into Bush Bashing Event.  Only liberals can get away with using the funeral of the wife of a civil rights leader to preach your Bush hate and anti-War rhetoric, and only liberals would do so.

Paul Wellstone II:  The Coretta Scott King "Funeral".  Today's "funeral" service seemed like it the Paul Wellstone "funeral", or as Instapundit called it, a campaign rally.  Ed Driscoll similarly said that this was a 'pep rally'.  The only thing different today was that the President didn't walk out, like then Gov. Jesse Ventura did.  If President Bush and the First Lady did walk out, I would have supported them 100%.

Wellstoning the King Funeral:  [Jimmy Carter] never has a good word for anyone but himself, or a third world dictator, and he has never managed to behave in a classy manner — not when he can do the easier, trashier thing and get his accolades from the usual suspects, and lots of coverage.

Dad Slams Attack On Bush At King Rite.  Former President George H.W. Bush has expressed dismay and anger at attacks on his son, President Bush, at the funeral for Coretta Scott King.

Back to the peanut gallery, Jimmy.  Carter, in case you haven't heard, didn't mention WMDs but did bring up federal wiretaps and racial discrimination. … This coming from the man who a little over a year ago traveled to Cuba and appeared at a baseball game with Fidel Castro — and they were wearing matching shirts, by the way.  And of course Carter went out of his way to insinuate that President Bush had somehow contrived to discriminate against thousands of black folks in Katrina's aftermath — and on and on and on.  I was ashamed to be from the same state.

A class act.  In some form or fashion, I have known the players in what I am about to describe as a series of regrettable moments at the funeral of Coretta Scott King.  The one I know least, President George W. Bush, won both my sympathy and respect for gallantly enduring the slings and arrows pointed directly at him during what should have been a celebration of a great woman, but instead turned into a political rally.

Turning a funeral pulpit into a political soapbox:  It's sad to say but it must be said.  It should be clear to anyone who watched the tasteless politicization of Coretta Scott King's funeral by a black minister and by a former president why the black community remains, after all these years, as troubled as it is.

Showtime at Coretta Scott King's funeral.  The "funeral" of Coretta Scott King turned into an ugly, disrespectful political rally. … There stood Oprah Winfrey, the most powerful woman in television, with her net worth estimated by Forbes magazine at $1.3 billion.  And she recently signed a $55 million deal with XM Satellite Radio.

Jimmy Carter's Values:  While some commentators took former President Jimmy Carter to task for his misleading and political comments at the Coretta Scott King funeral about wiretapping, his ridiculous claims about the victims of Hurricane Katrina went largely unchallenged.

And now... here's Wellstone III.
