Don Lemon rails against Rick Santorum after BS chat with Chris Cuomo: "I'm furious!"

"I'm furious!" CNN's Don Lemon said to Chris Cuomo in an emotional rant against CNN's conservative commentator Rick Santorum. (And, although he doesn't come out and say it, he also seems frustrated with Cuomo for his lackluster response after having the unapologetic Santorum on his show). — Read the rest

"This is a surreal depiction in which racism is concentrated everywhere. Everyone manifests racism, but then also a vulnerable human side."

"The characters' stories were nicely, complexly interwoven. I liked it — even when it skewed melodramatic. I liked that you were kept on your toes about which characters to love or hate, to respect or revile."That's something I blogged in February 2006, after watching the movie "Crash," which had just been nominated for the Best Picture Oscar. The movie went on to win that Oscar, a fact I'm contemplating this morning because I'm reading "The Oscars always get it wrong. Here are the real best pic...

Marjorie Taylor Greene's ugly comment about a woman in a hijab resurfaces

Many of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene's (Q-GA) racist or just plain bullying and hateful Facebook posts have been deleted, or buried so far down people who didn't know who she was in 2019 never saw them. Here is a resurfaced short clip from an hour-long video she took in front of a library that was throwing a "drag queen story time" event, in which she points to a woman wearing a hijab and says in disgust, "See that, right there? — Read the rest

"[I]t would appear that 'racist' means 'anything that a black person doesn’t like for some reason,' and we are to bow down and accept this..."

"... as post-Enlightenment, morally binding truth because black people have a hideous history. That is not a real discussion. It renders black people something less than human, in feigning that we are beyond serious critique. We are lying to one another and nervously hoping nobody will blow the whistle on what we are told to pretend is about 'social justice.' But lowering standards is not 'social justice,' nor is pretending that the standards have no value and calling for their elimination.... ...

"The implication that white people got better, that [George Floyd] served as a martyr for this country."

"The martyrdom of Black Americans is very prevalent among particularly white liberals and we see that, I think, in how we celebrate MLK and how a lot of these folks will uphold the whitewashed and martyred idea of Dr. King without actually exploring his radical nature and radical ideology.... [It was] the typical well meaning white liberal kind of paternalistic type of racism... She called to apologize in a way and it just really rang hollow to me.

Laura Ingraham says 'it sickens me' when Biden addresses systemic racism

Fox host Laura Ingraham did not take kindly to President Biden's desire to address systemic racism in the United States. But rather than just coming out and admitting her own racism, which is why his position would "sicken" her, she feigns an indignant reaction to his audacity. — Read the rest

"I believe Althouse wants to protect her blog from reprisal by the woke crowd, but I think the main reason for her prohibition of the-word-that-shall-not-be-uttered is that she is disgusted by it, and disgusted by people that use it."

Wrote Roughcoat in the comments to yesterday's post about the firing of a NYT reporter who had spoken the n-word aloud.  I said:  I think once you've been informed that something makes some other people feel bad, you need a good reason to keep doing it.  I learned the n-word was bad when I was a little child doing the "eeny meeny miney moe" rhyme, which in the early 1950s in Delaware had the n-word. As far as I knew, it was just another one of the nonsense words, like "miney" and "moe." Anot...

"[I]nsisting on this taboo [of the n-word] makes it look like black people are numb to the difference between usage and reference, vague on the notion of meta, given to overgeneralization rather than to making distinctions."

"To wit, to get [NYT reporter Donald] McNeil fired for using the N-word to refer to it makes black people look dumb. And not just to the Twitter trollers who will be nasty enough to actually write it down. Non-black people are thinking it nationwide and keeping it to themselves. Frankly, the illogic in this approach to the N-word is so obvious to anyone who does make distinctions that the only question is why people would not look on and guiltily wonder whether the idea that black people are les...

NYPD official in charge of handling workplace harassment accused of decades of racist ranting

NYPD Deputy Inspector James F. Kobel has allegedly been posting racist messages under the name "Clouseau" on a popular NYPD message board for more than 2 decades, according to the New York Times: Between the summer of 2019 and earlier this fall, "Clouseau" posted hundreds of messages on the Rant, many of which attacked Black people, Puerto Ricans, Hasidic Jews and others with an unbridled sense of animus. — Read the rest

Ex-FSU Coach Bobby Bowden Says He Beat COVID-19 Just So He Could Vote for Trump & Keep White Supremacy Alive

College football coaching legend Bobby Bowden released a statement Wednesday (Oct. 21) endorsing President Trump for re-election, saying that he beat COVID-19 just so that he could vote for Trump and basically “Keep America Great.” The 90-year-old former Florida State University coach revealed earlier this month that he’d contracted coronavirus, but was doing fine. In his letter posted this week, he wrote that he wanted to be around to vote for Trump. “I’ve had the chance to get a lot of wins in...

Trump wouldn't condemn white supremacists, tells Proud Boys 'stand back and stand by' in Biden debate

In the first presidential debate, Trump refused to condemn white supremacists and racism. He said instead to these groups, and he shouted out the Proud Boys in particular, "Stand back and Stand by." Is that a command to his armed base to prepare for violence after Trump loses the election? — Read the rest

President Donald Trump Refuses to Denounce White Supremacy, Tells Proud Boys to “Stand Back & Stand By”

President Donald Trump outright refused to denounce white supremacy groups and appeared to use a dog whistle with his followers by telling the Proud Boys to “stand back and stand by.” During the first presidential debate for the 2020 election, held in Cleveland, Ohio Tuesday night (Sep. 29), moderator Chris Wallace asked Trump asked whether he would be willing to condemn white supremacist and neo-nazi groups (such as “The Proud Boys“) once and for all, and the POTUS danced around that question l...

Racial harmony, circa 1986: Everybody, especially Lou Reed, sings "Soul Man."

I ran across that this morning because the Jessica Krug story (see previous post) got me thinking about the old movie "Soul Man," which I've never seen, but remember very well, because it was about affirmative action in law school, in which a white guy misidentifies himself as black so he can qualify for a black-only scholarship at Harvard Law School. The movie is named after the old Sam and Dave song, and Sam participated in that remake with Lou Reed — known for, among other things, the song "I...

Army relieves officer of duties after holocaust jibe

U.S. Army 2nd Lt. Nathan Freihofer is a Tik Tok star with 3 million followers. After the 23-year-old field artillery officer delivered a humorless "joke" about the holocaust in his annoying narcissist hyena voice, the army took immediate action, suspending him from duty and launching an investigation. In the short video, Freihofer said he would never become a "verified" user because of the content that he shares before telling his so-called joke, which was about the Holocaust and Jewish peopl...

"A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 75% of American Adults think the term 'racism' refers to any discrimination by people of one race against another."

"Just 15% say it refers only to discrimination by white people against minorities. These findings have changed little in surveys for the past several years.... Eighteen percent (18%) say most white Americans are racist. But 25% believe most black Americans are racist. Fifteen percent (15%) think most Hispanic-Americans are racist, while nearly as many (13%) say the same of most Asian-Americans.... Blacks see themselves, whites, Hispanics and Asians as equally racist. Whites consider themselves m...

"No Republican president has done this. No Democratic president. We’ve had racists, and they’ve existed. They’ve tried to get elected president. He’s the first one that has."So said Joe Biden yesterday. He was answering a question in a virtual town run by the Service Employees International Union, The Guardian reports.

"When I compare the cultural, intellectual and historical heft of the three categories, 'Black' comes out well ahead of 'white' and 'brown.'"

"We have whole libraries of books and articles about 'Blackness,' world-beating traditions of music and literature, even entire academic departments 30 to 50 years old specializing in African American/black studies. Compared with blackness, whiteness and brownness are severely under-theorized.... [And] I considered the asymmetry of racial identities of blackness and whiteness — and how they function differently in American history and culture. These two identities don’t simply mirror each other ...

"The new anti-racism has a confessional, religious energy that the secular meritocracy has always lacked."

"But there is also something important about its more radical and even ridiculous elements — like the weird business that increasingly shows up in official documents, from the New York Public Schools or the Smithsonian, describing things like 'perfectionism' or 'worship of the written word' or 'emphasis on the scientific method' or 'delayed gratification' as features of a toxic whiteness. Imagine yourself as a relatively privileged white person exhausted by meritocracy — an overworked student or...
