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… Click here to view original web page at nypost.com Read More »

Liberal NPR’s Odd CPAC Commentary: GOP is ‘Still Awkwardly White’

The annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) wrapped up on Saturday and NPR’s Weekend Edition Sunday felt the need to slam conservatives and its CPAC attendees as “overwhelmingly white.”

It gets worse. Brakkton Booker, a producer for NPR's Washington Desk, posted an online version of the story with the obnoxious headline “Black GOP Stars Rise In A Party That’s Still Awkwardly White." Booker offered a lengthy recap of the party’s "abysmal" standing with minorities.

After detailing the different minority speakers at CPAC, including Dr. Ben Carson and Senator Tim Scott (R-SC), Brakkton railed against how jokes made by CPAC speakers...

Poll: Just 11% of Black Youths Say Life is Better for Them Under Obama

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.

Rasmussen Reports reveals that just 16 percent of likely voters believe life for young blacks has improved since Obama's 2008 election, while 22 percent say it has gotten worse. Some 49 percent said nothing has changed.

Among blacks, some of the results are worse, with just 11 percent believing life has gotten better for African American youths over the past five years. On the slightly positive side, only 8 percent believe it has gotten worse...

The Brother Barack Obama Doesn’t ‘Keep’

The goal of the president’s newest racially divisive effort, “My Brother’s Keeper,” is to set black and Latino male youth apart from white male youth.  It centers on recruiting businesses and foundations to donate $200 million over five years towards programs that will benefit young males of color.  Apparently, much like Barack Obama’s real brothers, needy boys with little or ‘no color,’ as well women and girls of any color, will have to tough it out on their own...

Dr. Ben Carson: Beyond affirmative action

As a child growing up in Detroit and Boston, I had many opportunities to experience the ugly face of racism and witnessed the devastating toll exacted by its mean-spirited nature.

I was a victim of the racism of low expectations for black children, but in retrospect, I can see that many of those attitudes were based on ignorance. Large numbers of white people actually believed that blacks were intellectually inferior, and there was a host of other inaccurate beliefs that whites held about blacks and that blacks held about whites.

Many of those misperceptions probably would have persisted if measures had not been taken to abolish the separation of the races. One of those measures was affirmative action, which was based on the admirable concept that we should take into consideration inherent difficulties faced by minorities growing up in a racist society...

Did D’Souza Hit a Nerve?

Ridiculed.  Lampooned.  Denigrated.  That was the reaction that Dinesh D'Souza got upon launching his thesis about President Obama's mindset in his 2010 Forbes article, "How Obama Thinks." He argued in effect that president Obama's mindset was locked and loaded with the blame-colonialism doctrine that is still alive and well in post-colonial Asia and Africa...

Former NYPD Detective: Media Concealing Anti-Semitic Elements of ‘Knockout’ Game Because It’s Black-on-White Crime

On Fox News Channel’s “Hannity” on Tuesday night, former New York City Police Department detective Bo Dietl explained why the “Knockout” game — an activity which involves sucker-punching an unsuspecting bystander with the goal of knocking them unconscious — is something the news media should be devoting more attention to, despite its racial aspects.

According to Dietl, the media has largely ignored the trend because it involves black-on-white crime...

My Fellow Blacks, Can I Criticize Dear Leader Now?

Before committing the blasphemous and daring act of openly criticizing Dear Leader, it is obligatory that I first purify my spirit by reciting Dear Leader's prayer.

 

That way, the Black community doesn't condemn my soul for placing critical thinking over Black solidarity. It's common knowledge that Blacks who criticize Dear Leader are considered "sell-outs" while Whites are labeled "racists."...
