As previously reported at Liberty Unyielding, Harris-Perry said in part that the word “Obamacare” was “conceived of by wealthy white men who needed to put themselves above and apart from a black man, to render him inferior and unequal, and to diminish his accomplishments.”
Forgive a third post on the idiotic ritual known as Knockout in a single day, but this video, hot off the presses, is the one you have been waiting for. Opposing Views has the skinny on the latest attack, which occurred in a Las Vegas shopping mall over the weekend. It also backfired.
The narrative follows Hoyle initially. A black male runs up behind a black female whose head he comes upside, but the tables are promptly turned on him.
One of the unwritten rules of the “game” of knockout is capturing your own cowardly attack on an unsuspecting victim using a cellphone camera. This enables the attacker to post a “trophy video” online.
Unbeknownst to a group of geniuses in Milwaukee, theirs was not the only camera recording the event.
Whatever: New reports of racial violence from New Haven, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Salisbury, Milwaukee, Oakland, Minneapolis, Brooklyn, Antioch, and other places are coming in faster than reporters can wish them away.
The video features Tulane University professor and MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry. If H-P is famous for anything, it is her capacity for seeing racism everywhere she looks.
The facts are pretty straightforward. On Thursday, the president issued an executive order that all flags on public buildings and grounds, military posts, naval stations, and naval vessels be lowered to half-staff through sunset Monday to honor the memory of Nelson Mandela. On Friday, Pickens County, S.C., Sheriff Rick Clark said no.
Did you hear the one about the skinny accountant who could bench-press 500 pounds? Me neither. Watch your stereotypes, but having grown up Jewish in a predominantly Jewish community and attending a high school that was 90% Jewish, I’m here to tell you that the chosen people are — how to put this tactfully? — not known for their pugilistic prowess.
George Santayana’s admonition that “those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it” has played out again, this time in the town of Lunenburg, Mass. As Renee Nal reported, back in November Lunenburg transformed itself into Looneyburg after a racial slur was found spray-painted on the home of a biracial member of the high school football team. School superintendent Loxi Jo Calmes immediately canceled the remaining two games of the season.
Instead of reflecting on what was seemingly a knee-jerk reaction to cancel the football season in the wake of racist graffiti aimed at one of the players that is looking more and more like a hoax, Lunenburg Public Schools Superintendent Loxi Jo Calmes defended her decision in a lengthy, defensive statement posted yesterday, eagerly “reminding” people that there is still racism being investigated at the school.
Credit where credit is due. Al Sharpton has spoken out against the “game” of Knockout and has launched a social media campaign urging that “players” find some other outlet for their pent-up hostilities.
According to CBS New York, Sharpton, joined by National Urban League president Marc Morial, hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons, and Jewish leader Rabbi Marc Schneier, has recorded a series of brief YouTube videos with the message that “The knockout game is not a game.”
In case you missed it, the big story of the weekend (apart from Obamacare) was a tweet posted by the Republican National Committee to commemorate the 58th anniversary of Rosa Parks’s bold stand against government-sanctioned racial discrimination. What generated heat was the reference in the message to Parks’s “role in ending racism.” It was the verb end that was the flash point.
