Carter G. Woodson, noted scholar, historian and educator, created "Negro History Week" in 1926, which became Black History Month in 1976. Woodson chose February because it coincided with the birthdays of black abolitionist Frederick Douglass and President Abraham Lincoln.
'When they go low, we go lower' must have been the mantra for Friday’s Hardball as host Chris Matthews and his opening set of guests denounced Republicans as “North Korean infantry men” led by “racist” President Trump, “sniveling and supine” Ben Carson, “decorative” African-Americans, and “pathetic” House Speaker Paul Ryan.
On Tuesday’s Morning Joe, economic analyst Steve Rattner used a series of charts and graphs to deliver a supposedly straight, facts-oriented report about President Trump’s federal judicial nominations to date. However, Rattner could not help but devolve into standard left-wing talking points impugning Trump as a racist patriarch looking to deliberately exclude non-whites and women from the bench.
Welcome to one of the holidays liberals hate the most -- Thanksgiving. When the alt-left isn’t hating on Christopher Columbus, bashing Christmas, disrespecting veterans or undermining the national anthem, they find time to target a national day when we give thanks. And when they hate, boy do they hate. This year’s target? The Pilgrims.
A young African American resident learns a necessary lesson in the November 20 episode of ABC’s The Good Doctor. She learns she must treat even the most difficult of patients because it is her job. Meanwhile, ABC wants you to learn the benefits of affirmative action through the evils of Nazism.
It is the sixth episode of CBS’s SEAL Team and the show is still trying to figure out what it wants to be. Are they going to question if we’re the good guys or are they going to show us as the good guys, because this back and forth isn’t working. In Wednesday night’s episode "The Spinning Wheel," they come right out of the gate playing the race card … then fold.
Let's throw out a few numbers so we can put in perspective the NFL players taking a knee during the playing of the national anthem. Many say they are protesting against police treatment of blacks and racial discrimination. We might ask just how much sense their protest makes. According to The Washington Post, 737 people have been shot and killed by police this year in the United States. Of that number, there were 329 whites, 165 blacks, 112 Hispanics, 24 members of other races and 107 people whose race was unknown.
FS1's morning dumpster fire Undisputed has been a clearing house for far-left sports punditry, so it was only cemented Friday morning when co-hosts Shannon Sharpe and Skip Bayless shamefully ripped Green Bay Packers fans as white people more interested in “heartland patriotism” than protesting during the National Anthem.
After engaging in character assassination against Green Bay Packers fans who chose not to protest during Thursday’s National Anthem, FS1's Undisputed co-host Shannon Sharpe did the same with the American flag, declaring it to be merely a racist “piece of cloth” that “nobody fights for.”
Like many of CNN’s town halls, Wednesday night’s NFL special featured multiple perspectives and balanced questioning, but the goodwill and dialogue was degraded by liberal filmmaker Spike Lee’s intolerant outbursts. Chief among them was Lee’s insistence that politics cannot be avoided in sports (and thus must be mixed) because of the country’s racist history and “genocide of Native Americans and slavery” plus dismissing concerns about NFL protests raised by a Gold Star family.
In the liberal media world, it’s fashionable nowadays to say that Donald Trump is a racist. So in the aftermath of the NFL anthem protest, the racism accusations only doubled in length and stupidity.
USA Today columnist Nancy Armour received front-page treatment on Monday, swooning over how “extraordinary” the anti-Trump, anti-National Anthem protests were during Sunday’s NFL games that made for “one of its finest moments” ever. Along with the gush and trashing Trump as a “racist,” she equated woke athletes with the actual heroics Muhammad Ali, Magic Johnson, Billie Jean King, and Jackie Robinson from years past.
