The National Book Award goes to a ridiculous racist.

A Post-Racial Society is Racist and Other Things Ibram X. Kendi Taught Me

The 2015 National Book Award winner wrote that the police officers and firefighters who dashed in to save people in the World Trade Center on 9/11 were “menaces of nature” and “not human to me”.

After the National Book Foundation disgraced itself with its award to Ta-Nehisi Coates’s bizarre racist tract, Between the World and Me, in which white people, even if they’re saving lives after a terrorist attack, are not human, it decided to go one worse with its 2016 winner who insists that a post-racial society is a racist idea.

That’s Ibram X. Kendi, an assistant professor of African American History at the University of Florida, who won for Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America. Like Coates, Kendi appears to come from a black nationalist family and Stamped is another black nationalist tract.

Stamped from the Beginning claims to narrate “the entire history of racist ideas, from their origins in fifteenth-century Europe”. Apparently racist ideas had not existed for all of human history until the Europeans invented them around the same time as the printing press and the muzzle-loaded rifle.

Rex Murphy: A whiff of BLM grapeshot, and Niki Ashton waves the surrender flag (I dare not call it ‘white’, in this context)

It is a great wide world in which the strangest things bring people together. Two prominent feminists, from different political parties, one of whom is already a leader, the other seeking that status, have found themselves in the judgement court of the inquisitional Black Lives Matter branch plant in Canada. Just over a month ago, our pridefully feminist Prime Minister was left withering in the rhetorical wind from a blast issued by BLM Toronto’s megaphonic Yusra Khogali.

Local blogger says he had Don Meredith appointed to Senate just so he could “bring him down”

Don Meredith says ‘racism has played a role’ in his sex scandal

The senator said Wednesday he believes he has been the victim of racism since the allegations about his affair first surfaced in the summer of 2015. Where individuals of colour rise, he said, somehow they’re taken down — whether it’s “self-inflicted or orchestrated.”

“Absolutely, racism has played a role in this,” Meredith said. “This is nothing new to me. There is always a double standard that exists in this country.”

Damn right it did, every morning since I can remember the first thing on my mind was; How do I bring down Don Meredith?

Finally through a combination of white privilege and low cunning my plans succeeded.

In fact I had Don appointed to the Senate just so I could set him up.

It’s just the way I roll.

Gunfire Erupts At Convenience Store Protest For Michael Brown

On Sunday night, the day after a documentary film implied that Michael Brown, who was shot by Officer Darren Wilson in 2014, precipitating the riots in Ferguson, Mo., had not robbed the Ferguson Market & Liquor convenience store prior to the confrontation but instead had conducted a drug deal with the owner, violence erupted at the convenience store, with shots fired.

Black Leaders In Chicago Finally State The Obvious About Violent Crime

Chicago residents need to start taking responsibility for the city’s shootings, according to black leaders in the area.

The Chicago Police Department hosted an Operation Wake Up event Thursday where leaders urged residents to stop blaming the police, reports the Chicago Sun-Times.

“Here’s a fact: When it comes to violence and our children, there is no side. We are all on the side of righteousness and justice on this,” Glen Brooks said, speaking in response to a widely-held view that Chicago protests only focus on police brutality.
