China Newspaper Calls out Trump as Racist

Mirroring what news organizations and leaders from around the world are saying, with a particularly Chinese communist bent – China’s largest daily unloads on the Drumph..

China paper says rise of ‘racist’ Trump shows democracy is scary

Mussolini and Hitler came to power through elections, China’s Global Times reminded readers Monday. Now an “abusively racist and extremist” candidate is on the rise in the United States, it says. Maybe democracy isn’t such a good idea after all.

In an editorial Monday, China’s state-owned Global Times newspaper used Donald Trump’s rise to gloat about the fault lines in U.S. society and to argue that democracy was both a waste of time — and downright scary.

From the rise of a “narcissistic and inflammatory candidate” to the violence that surrounded his planned rally in Chicago, the paper said it was shocking this could happen in a country that “boasts one of the most developed and mature democratic election systems” in the world.

Fistfights between supporters of rival parties might be common in developing countries during election season, it wrote, but in the United States?

Trump, it said, has opened a Pandora’s box.

Black Memoribilia/Black Americana

BTx3 has a small collection of Black Americana. For those unfamiliar with the term, Black Americana are historical items having to do with black folks going back to the 1700’s. The items may be slave chains and handcuffs, or racist caricatures of black folks, sometimes mass produced from the 1800’s through the 1940’s.

Came across this piece at a recent auction (no, I didn’t buy it), which is sheet music from 1898. It is projected to go for over $1,000.

A description of the item(s)

WHEN A COON SITS IN THE PRESIDENTIAL CHAIR
[Sheet Music] 2 Titles. ++ WHEN A COON SITS IN THE PRESIDENTIAL CHAIR. By Geo. R. Wilson of the Famous Wilson Family… Chas K Harris, (1898). (Lower edge of first page and inside of front wrap: “Fred’k Pollworth & Bro., Music Typo’s, Milwaukee.” “5” cent price on front wrap. 4to, sheet music. [Front wrap], [ads on verso], [4pp musical score], lacking rear wrap. Front wrap separated and has a tear overlapping the “n” in “Wilson.” Smaller tear to right margin. Tiny chips and tears to edges of front wrap. The lyrics are an extended joke based on what Harris believed to be impossible: A black President. In keeping with that theme, the front wrap shows The Wilson Family in silly costumes, especially funny for a time when most blacks performed farm labor, housework, and other blue collar work. ++ JEROME & SCHWARTZ’S COMIC SONG FOLIO: A Collection of New and Well-known Comic Songs by these two popular writers. Shapiro, Bernstein and Company, (1902). “50c Net” price at lower right of front wrap. 4to. [Front wrap and blank verso], [title page], score 4-54pp, [rear wrap and blank recto]. Front wrap separated. Rear wrap and corners of leaves have creasing. Includes “There’ll Never Be A Coon Sit In The Presidential Chair” (pp36-38, inspired by the sheet music listed first above, but not the same).

Uncle Jason Riley…Fueling White Racists

This on is two articles. A piece by Uncle Jason Tomming for the man about Black History Month, and a white racist defending racist statements because she got them for Jason Riley…SHowing just how black Uncle Tom’s like Riley enable white racists.

This from the Lawn Jockey himself. Here Riley argues that Jim Crow was good for black people, and if they knew their places they would be better off.

An Alternative Black History Month

History Month, which began as Negro History Week some 90 Februarys ago, was meant to be temporary. Its founder, historian Carter G. Woodson, envisioned a time when black history would be incorporated with American history and no longer require separate recognition. Woodson’s optimism was warranted.

Americans today are led by a black president in the fourth year of his second term. Martin Luther King’s birthday is a national holiday. The likeness of Harriet Tubman or Rosa Parks might soon grace U.S. currency, if the majority of people surveyed prevails. And it has been decades since school curricula excluded black perspectives and accomplishments. Black History Month’s sunset might seem long overdue, but the celebration is too useful politically for that to happen anytime soon.

Woodson died in 1950, a few years before the civil-rights movement found its stride. In the post-1960s era, black leaders turned that movement into a lucrative industry, and Black History Month helps keep them relevant. February is not simply about highlighting the achievements of people like voting-rights activist Fannie Lou Hamer or the Buffalo Soldiers who served in the Spanish-American War.

It is also about using racial identity to advance groupthink and to discourage black individuality. It is about presenting the history of blacks as the history of their victimization by whites up to the present day—which explains racial disparities in areas ranging from school achievement and household income to rates of unemployment, incarceration and single-parent homes.

The irony is that black history in the first half of the 20th century is a history of tremendous progress despite overwhelming odds. During a period of legal discrimination and violent hostility to their advancement, blacks managed to make unprecedented gains that have never been repeated. Black poverty fell to 47% from 87% between 1940 and 1960—before the implementation of Great Society programs that receive so much credit for poverty reduction. The percentage of black white-collar workers quadrupled between 1940 and 1970—before the implementation of affirmative-action policies that supposedly produced today’s black middle class.

In New York City, the earnings of black workers tripled between 1940 and 1950, and over the next decade the city saw a 55% increase in the number of black lawyers, a 56% increase in the number of black doctors and a 125% increase in the number of black teachers, according to political scientist Michael Javen Fortner’s new book, “Black Silent Majority.” The number of black nurses, accountants and engineers grew at an even faster clip over the same period. “There are signs that the Negro has begun to develop a large, strong middle class,” wrote Time magazine in 1953.

You don’t hear much about this black history during Black History Month (or any other month, for that matter) because it undercuts the dominant narrative pushed by the political left and accepted uncritically by the media. The Rev. Al Sharpton and the NAACP have no use for empirical evidence of significant black socioeconomic gains during the Jim Crow era, because they have spent decades insisting that blacks can’t advance until racism has been eliminated. If racism is no longer a significant barrier to black upward mobility and doesn’t explain today’s racial disparities, then blacks may have no use for Mr. Sharpton and the NAACP. The main priority of civil-rights leaders today is self-preservation.

Many factors could plausibly explain black progress in the first part of the 20th century. The post-World War II economy was booming, and blacks were steadily increasing their years of education, which increased their levels of compensation. Mass migration from the South meant that more blacks had access to the higher-paying jobs in the North.

The black family was also more stable during this period. Every census from 1890 to 1940 shows the black marriage rate slightly higher than the white rate. In 1925 five out of six black children in New York City lived with both parents. Nationally, two out of three black children were being raised in two-parent homes as recently as the early 1960s. Today, more than 70% are not.

Black nuclear families used to be the norm. Now they are the exception. Jim Crow did less damage to the black family than well-intentioned Great Society programs that discouraged work and marriage and promised more government checks for having more children. But that black history is also kept largely under wraps by those who have a vested interest in blaming the decimation of the black family on slavery and discrimination.

Much of what ought to be studied, duplicated and celebrated in black history is often played down or willfully ignored. And so long as the media allow civil-rights activists and liberal politicians with their own agendas to speak for all blacks, that won’t change.

Now – the white racist School Board member…

School board member kicks off Black History Month by telling blacks they are ‘their own worst enemy’

Illinois school board member is under fire for kicking off Black History Month by posting a racist message on the board’s official Facebook page, the Daily Herald reports.

Elgin Area School District U-46 board member Jeanette Ward, wrote the post on Feb. 1 that began with the line: “Blacks have become their own worst enemy, and liberal leaders do not help matters by blaming self-inflicted wounds on whites or ‘society.’”

Ward was quoting from author Jason L. Riley’s book “Please Stop Helping Us: How Liberals Make It Harder for Blacks to Succeed.”

Ward’s post continued, “The notion that racism is holding back blacks as a group, or that better black outcomes cannot be expected until racism has been vanquished, is a dodge. And encouraging blacks to look to politicians to solve their problems does them a disservice.”

At a Monday night board meeting, speakers tore into Ward’s post, calling it “racist speech” and labeling it as “irresponsible,” particularly on the first day of  Black History Month.

“When we honor Black History Month, we ought to know what black history is all about,” stated Myrna Becker before adding that she was appalled by what she read.

According to Ward, who is white,  she felt she was offering different perspective on Black History Month.

Danise Habun, a member of the Elgin Human Relations Commission, disagreed.

“There was nothing respectful toward or celebratory of Black History Month contained in the passage posted by Ms. Ward,” Habun said. “If her words and the quoted passage from the book is indeed to offer a fresh perspective, it appears as if there has been a failure to communicate. It continues to blame the victim, and ignores institutionalized racism. As an official elected to represent all members of the U-46 school district, Ms. Ward is to be held to a high standard of behavior and conduct.”

Ward refused to back down following the public comments, but did state that the entire board should not be held accountable for what she wrote.

She also defended the post by pointing out that original author Jason Riley is black.

“I want all people to succeed. There is one race — the human race. Did I not honor that African-American author by quoting him? I stand by quoting Jason L. Riley,” she said.

Faux News – “That Monkey Actress”

It is unbelievable the scum that Faux News trolls up to be their “guests”…

Vice co-founder and frequent Fox News guest Gavin McInnes refers to Jada Pinkett Smith as that “monkey actress”

Vice co-founder and frequent Fox News guest Gavin McInnes was attempting to praise his son’s verbal and intellectual dexterity on “The Gavin McInnes Show” earlier this week, but ended up revealing more about himself than his progeny.

“My son,” McInnes began, “says all this awesome shit and wife gets to enjoy him more than I do. He was watching some documentary about those monkeys that are most like us — they’re monogamous and cool and they wear suits and they go to work and they use umbrellas and they play cards.”

“They are the most human-acting apes,” he explained. “Anyway, my son’s watching it, and he’s eating popcorn, and he thinks he recognizes one of them from another movie.”

“He goes, ‘Oh, I like this,’” McInnes said with a lisp, adding that his son has one, so he’s simply making fun of him on a nationally syndicated radio program. “‘Oh, I like this monkey actress’ — which is what I said when Jada Pinkett Smith did her video about the Oscars.”

Crystal Valentine – “Questions for Fox News Regarding the Race Card”

Slam!

A Few Burning Questions For Fox News Regarding The ‘Race Card’

“Will this race card give me health benefits?”

Poet Crystal Valentine has perfectly summed up the absurdity of the so-called “race card.”

The Bronx-born slam poet performed a poem titled “Questions for Fox News Regarding the Race Card,” in October at the Individual World Poetry Slam. She had some poignant things to ask of the network that often accuses black people of “playing the race card.”

“If in the event that I am stopped and frisked, can I pull out my race card? Will this race card increase my chances of survival?”

In a video of the performance, posted by Button Poetry earlier this month, Valentine goes on to emphasize the ways in which “pulling the race card” (i.e. calling attention to racism and oppression) often does nothing to actually help black people.

“Will this race card give me health benefits?” continues. “How about Obamacare? Will it reimburse me for my cousin’s casket? Will it unbury his body? Will it remove his name from a tombstone?”

Tavis Smiley Obliterates Donald Trump on Don Lemon’s CNN Show

Don was searching for an angle to support his boy, Trump…But it didn’t work. Tavis UNLOADS!

Trump’s attack on Tavis Smiley backfires when PBS host skewers him for pandering to racists

Tavis Smiley, author and public television talk show host, hit back at Donald Trump for calling him a racist, noting that the GOP presidential candidate had failed to condemn the white supremacists who support his 2016 campaign.

The host of Tavis Talks on PBS went on the ABC talk show This Week and said Trump is an “unrepentant, irascible religious and racial arsonist” for his comments calling undocumented immigrants criminals and calling for a ban on Muslims entering the country. In response, Trump tweeted that Smiley is a “hater & racist.”

When asked about his comment by CNN host Don Lemon on Monday night, Smiley repeated it and also said the news media is asking the wrong questions when it comes to Trump’s prominence among American voters.

“What troubles me quite frankly is that we keep talking about… Trump rising in the polls as if somehow this is happening miraculously,” Smiley said.” It’s happening in part because, as your lead-in shows with these now white supremacists supporting him — it’s happening because he’s appealing to a certain base voter in this country. He’s appealing to the dark side, the night side of America and that’s why he’s rising in the polls. And we ought not cover him without condemning him for doing that.”

Smiley then chided Trump about his tweet.

“First of all, for a guy with a Wharton degree, he’s got to do better than ‘hater and racist,’” Smiley said. “Can we just remove the word ‘hater’ from our lexicon?”

He then question how Trump could conclude that Smiley was a racist after failing to condemn a white supremacist group for making campaign robocalls for his campaign.

“I’m on your program tonight because I made a comment about Donald Trump yesterday on a morning show,” Smiley said. “And within a matter of hours, Donald Trump had tweeted about me… So if that story broke over the weekend about this white supremacist — again, he can’t be responsible for who is supporting him. But how can he get around to calling me a racist and a hater in less than 24 hours, but since the weekend he hasn’t gotten around to condemning a white supremacist for supporting his campaign.”

He then pointed out that “nobody in the media is asking these questions.”
