How Trump Hates Blacks.

The narrative is that President Donald Trump hates blacks or any other ethnic group that is not white. And because that narrative is thrust in the face of everyone almost on a daily basis by so called social justice warriors, ANTTFA, leftists, progressives and Democrats (which may be repeating ourselves,) it must be true, right?

Well, it is true unless you ignore the facts.

From left to right, UCLA basketball players Jalen Hill, LiAngelo Ball and Cody Riley

Let us introduce you to three basketball players from UCLA. Jalen Hill, LiAngelo Ball and Cody Riley were with their team in China for a game against Georgia Tech. Instead of representing their school and the United States in an honorable way, the three freshman thought it would be a great idea to shoplift from a store next to the hotel in which they were staying.

How much of an idiot do you have to be to shoplift in China, a country that watches everything with cameras and has what we would consider draconian laws on theft?

How stupid and entitled do you have to be?

The three were caught and were placed under house arrest. Depending on how the Chinese would prosecute the case, the trio was looking at somewhere between 30 days to ten years in a comfy place called a China jail.

As luck would have it, there was a large planned meeting of US State Department officials and the Chinese shortly after the arrests and confinement of the three players. The Trump State Department quietly pushed to have the charges of the three reduced. Allegedly, an agreement was made where the three would be held in their hotel for three weeks. They would still be in China while their team flew back to the US, but that outcome was clearly better than being in a China prison.

As more luck would have it, Trump himself was in the region as part of a scheduled tour to meet with leaders of nations in Asia. One of the scheduled meetings was with Chinese President Xi Jinping where during the meeting, the subject of the three players was raised.

The result of that meeting?

Racial Incident That Sparked Outrage At The Air Force Academy Found To Be A Hoax.

In late September, there was an alleged racial incident at the US Air Force Preparatory School. Five black students found racially charged writing on the message boards outside of their rooms.

The Prep School is on the ground of the Air Force Academy and it is designed to help prepare people to enter into the Air Force Academy itself.

After the incidents were reported, the head of the Air Force Academy, Lt. Gen. Jay B. Silveria, had some strong words concerning what had happened:

In a five-minute address in front of the academy’s 4,000 cadets and 1,500 staff members, Lt. Gen. Jay Silveria affirmed the Air Force’s belief in “the power of diversity” and insisted that “small thinking and horrible ideas” had no place there.

He was responding to racial slurs that were found on the dormitory message boards of five black students at a preparatory school on the academy’s campus on Monday, said the academy, which is investigating.

“If you’re outraged by those words then you’re in the right place,” General Silveria said. “You should be outraged not only as an airman, but as a human being.”

“If you can’t treat someone with dignity and respect–then you need to get out.”-Lt. Gen. Jay B. Silveria, Superintendent @AF_Academy pic.twitter.com/njCktv5Fmp

He then explicitly linked the discovery of the slurs to events like the demonstrations in Charlottesville, Va., where white supremacists marched with torches in August, and Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teenager by a police officer in 2014 set off protests across the country. He said that these events formed a backdrop that had to be addressed, and that to think otherwise would be “tone deaf.”

After calling for a civil discourse, he spoke of the power of various forms of diversity, evoking “the power that we come from all walks of life, that we come from all parts of this country, that we come from all races, we come from all backgrounds, gender, all makeup, all upbringing.”

He added: “This is our institution and no one can take away our values. No one can write on a board and question our values.”

We hope those values include a strong stand against lying and false allegations as the incidents have been found to be false.

Don’t Judge Blacks Differently.

An interesting perspective from Prager University.

Does race trump truth? In a confrontation between police and perpetrators, what is more important? Facts or skin color? When protests morph into riots, do we excuse bad behavior based on race? If we do, how are we ever going to end racism? Chloe Valdary, a student at the University of New Orleans, confronts these critical questions and offers a compelling answer.

“True Gentlemen?” Anything But.

OU-SAE-Wall-ROHThe University of Oklahoma has dropped its affiliations with the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity after a video (seen below) surfaced showing members of the fraternity singing or chanting what is a decidedly racist song.

In case you can’t understand the lyrics, they are:

There will never be a nigger at SAE
There will never be a nigger at SAE
You can hang him from a tree
But he’ll never sign with me
There will never be a nigger at SAE

A protest of the fraternity and the “song” was held on campus Monday. That event was attended by members of University sports teams as well as high profile coaches such as Sooner football coach Bob Stoops.

Also on Monday, University President David Boren released a statement saying:

To those who have misused their free speech in such a reprehensible way, I have a message for you. You are disgraceful. You have violated all that we stand for. You should not have the privilege of calling yourselves “Sooners.” Real Sooners are not racist. Real Sooners are not bigots. Real Sooners believe in equal opportunity. Real Sooners treat all people with respect. Real Sooners love each other and take care of each other like family members.

Effective immediately, all ties and affiliations between this University and the local SAE chapter are hereby severed. I direct that the house be closed and that members will remove their personal belongings from the house by midnight tomorrow. Those needing to make special arrangements for positions shall contact the Dean of Students.

All of us will redouble our efforts to create the strongest sense of family and community. We vow that we will be an example to the entire country of how to deal with this issue. There must be zero tolerance for racism everywhere in our nation.

The National leadership of SAE released a statement on the incident and the closing of the OU SAE chapter saying in part:

Who Are the Racists: Conservatives or Liberals?

We had this video set to go before the Walpole / Academic Magnet School story came to our attention, but this video now takes on a more timely viewpoint.

To call someone a racist is a serious charge. A racist is someone who believes that one person is superior (or inferior) to another person simply based on their skin color. It’s a belief that is both foolish and stupid. But conservatives are accused by progressives of being racist on an almost daily basis. Is it a fair accusation? Or, is it just political posturing? And, if it is political posturing, what does it say about the people making the charge? Derryck Green of Project 21 has some provocative answers.

Perception Of Racism.

boston-bruins-KKK-ROHThis past Wednesday night, the Montreal Canadians beat the Boston Bruins in double overtime 4 – 3. With 4:19 left in the second overtime, Montreal defenseman P.K. Subban fired a slapshot past Boston goalie Tukka Rask for the game winner.

Canadian fans were ecstatic. Bruin fans, not so happy and took to Twitter to voice their displeasure.

The target of the fans anger was the aforementioned Subban, who is black.

Tweets from fans rained down against Subban using racial terms and epitaphs that would make a sailor blush.

It was vile, stupid, wrong, and every other adjective we can think of that would decry this type of bigotry. You would think that after a week of the mess with Donald Sterling, people would know better.

It is okay to dislike a guy because of the uniform he wears, but don’t hate a man because of the color of his skin.

The Bruins organization, for their part, released a statement condemning the racism:

“The racist, classless views expressed by an ignorant group of individuals following Thursday’s game via digital media are in no way a reflection of anyone associated with the Bruins organization.” – President of Boston Bruins Operations Cam Neely

What is missing from the condemnation of Sterling and the Bruins fans is the overall condemnation of whites, of males, of conservatives and of Republicans if the incidents had taken place south of the Mason-Dixon line.

You would have heard that Sterling was typical of the people in the south – racist, white and conservative. Yet Sterling is from Los Angeles, a town that leans to the left politically. Sterling himself is a supporter of liberal and Democratic causes.

Boston is a city than decidedly leans to the left yet no mention of the political leanings of city or the state is made.

If the same tweets had occurred while the Canadians were playing the Nashville Predators, the Carolina Hurricanes, or the Atlanta Thrashers, would the city, the state, and the fans have gotten a pass as Boston and Sterling did? Would the press had dug deep into other racial incidents with owners, teams and fans if these incidents had happened in the south?

You bet they would have.

And that’s the problem.

Talking About Racism And Racist Words Now Deemed Racist.

“Well, in all my years I ain’t never heard, seen nor smelled an issue that was so dangerous it couldn’t be talked about. Hell yeah! I’m for debating anything.” – Stephen Hopkins, Rhode Island Delegate, from the movie 1776.

“Nigger.”

Or, if you’d prefer, “nigga.”

There. We said it. It is forever locked into the annals of the internet and this blog for all time – never to be erased or lost. Somewhere, someone will have a record of the day the word appeared on this blog.

That being said, we find the word offensive. In today’s world and modern landscape, there is no need or purpose behind anyone using the “n-word” in public or polite conversation when directed at or describing another person. While we have been a consistent supporter of the First Amendment, the purpose of the First Amendment is to encourage debate and discussion. When used as an invective, the “n-word” has the effect of shutting down conversations. Points of view are no longer exchanged. While a person has a right to use the word, in most cases we believe they should not.

One of those cases when the use of the word is acceptable is when it is used in a discussion of the offense it causes, the perception it has, or the stifling of debate. The only way to discuss how the word does these things is to use the actual word, as we are doing here. We used the word here because we are talking about the word itself and not directing it at anyone.

Which brings us to teacher Lincoln Brown of Chicago. Brown teaches at the Murray Language Academy located on the south side of Chicago. His 5th and 6th grade writing and social studies students are mostly black children.

We would bet that Brown had no idea when he went to work one fateful day in October there would be an incident in his class ending up being his being suspended and his reputation impugned, resulting in him filing a lawsuit against the City of Chicago.

Two “Well Known” Memes Go Up In Smoke. Leftist Heads Explode.

Damn those Southerners. From the time the United States of America was formed, the South has been hostile to minorities. It is always the states in the North that are models of tolerance and equality. After all, look at Jesse Jackson who rails against racism in the Southern city of Chicago. Uh… sorry. That can’t be right. Well, then we have Al Sharpton who constantly points to racism in one of the South’s biggest metropolises, New York. No wait. That can’t be right either. Chicago and New York aren’t southern states.

Okay, it is those Southern redneck guys that are racists. You know, the ones that live in small to mid sized communities. They must be the ones that are keeping minorities down. Right?

Wrong.

Many people that travel across the country and have lived in multiple places will tell you that racism is much worse in the northern areas of the country than in the south. That is not to say that race relations are perfect south of the Mason Dixon line. What is being said is the idea of northern states being less racist than their southern brothers is am outright lie. It is the elitism of intellectuals from the North who like to look down their noses at those in the South and proclaim superiority in racial matters without a basis in fact.

Their continued sense of superiority is proof of that adage “if you tell a lie enough, people will believe it as truth.”

The Florida Today newspaper summarizes a report commissioned by the Urban Institute:
