The Electoral College’s Racist Origins

The race-consciousness establishment—and retention—of the Electoral College has supported an entitlement program that our 21st-century democracy cannot justify. If people truly want ours to be a race-blind politics, they can start by plucking that strange, low-hanging fruit from the Constitution.

White teen girl detailed plan for racist attack on black churchgoers in ...

Gainesville City Schools Superintendent Jeremy Williams said the girl’s alleged actions should not reflect on the school system.

“As a school system that celebrates our diversity, we are beyond stunned with the recent development,” he told CNN. “However, we are extremely proud of our students notifying school administration of a possible off-campus threat.” The FBI is assisting Gainesville police in their investigation, but it is unlikely authorities will bring federal charges against her because she is a minor. Jackson, the bishop, told the Journal-Constitution that he wants to see the girl tried as an adult. “To plan this kind of event,” he said, “is not that of a childish mind.” Full Article: https://www.whytheracecardisplayed.com/post/white-teen-girl-detailed-plan-for-racist-attack-on-black-churchgoers-in-notebook-police-say

Racist Manifesto Lands on Syracuse Students’ Phones, Deepening Crisis

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — It was an ordinary cram session, around midnight, when the screed appeared on students’ phones. A racist manifesto, sent to a small clutch of people sitting at a Syracuse University library on Tuesday morning, warned of “the great replacement,” a right-wing conspiracy theory that predicts white genocide at the hands of minority groups. It was just the latest example of racist activity that has left the private university besieged, with officials confronted by student sit-ins and harsh critiques from faculty members and federal agents crawling the campus. The incidents, which began less than two weeks ago, have included racist graffiti, swastikas and hate speech hurled at black and Asian students.

How American Racism Influenced Hitler

The Nazis were not wrong to cite American precedents. Enslavement of African-Americans was written into the U.S. Constitution. Thomas Jefferson spoke of the need to “eliminate” or “extirpate” Native Americans. In 1856, an Oregonian settler wrote, “Extermination, however unchristian-like it may appear, seems to be the only resort left for the protection of life and property.” General Philip Sheridan spoke of “annihilation, obliteration, and complete destruction.” To be sure, others promoted more peaceful—albeit still repressive—policies. The historian Edward B. Westermann, in “Hitler’s Ostkrieg and the Indian Wars” (Oklahoma), concludes that, because federal policy never officially mandated the “physical annihilation of the Native populations on racial grounds or characteristics,” this was not a genocide on the order of the Shoah. The fact remains that between 1500 and 1900 the Native population of U.S. territories dropped from many millions to around two hundred thousand. Full Article…

Why NBA legends like Zach Randolph are pouring millions into the NBL

AFRICAN AMERICANS DIVEST IN AMERICA Jason Cadee believes the game is in a strong position to continue its upward trajectory, having proven itself as the second-best league in the world, from a players' perspective. "I think the quality of basketball we have, the way the league is structured, the entertainment side of it, the owners, the professionalism, I think it ticks boxes everywhere," he said.

Holocaust experts “have some concerns” over Taika Waititi’s ‘Jojo Rabbit’

Wiederman, meanwhile, said that the film could prove helpful in teaching a younger generation about the Holocaust. “With satire, the challenge is balancing the absurd with the real,” she said.

By 1775 Saint-Georges was so well established as a composer, soloist and orchestra director, that he was considered for the post of artistic director of the Royal Academy of Music at the Opéra. According to Baron von Grimm in his Correspondance littéraire, philosophique et critique (1776), Saint-Georges’ nomination collapsed in the face of strong opposition from some of the female artists at the Opéra, including the famous singers Sophie Arnould and Rosalie Levasseur. Baron Grimm described Saint-Georges to his readers as: Full Article: https://www.whytheracecardisplayed.com/post/before-there-was-mozart

Character that is mixed-race and visibly Black in comics was played by a white actress in Bat Woman

What I find funny is that whenever a character is changed from white to another race, most of the time Black, we are told that “if a Black character were turned white, cats would lie with dogs and the rivers would run red with blood.” And yet, Batwoman did that, and it happened with not even a whimper. Yes, we brought it up here, but the race bending issue was largely ignored by the rest of the internet. It’s almost as if people actually don’t care.

People who do this thing, who practice racism, are bereft?

I revisit this Toni Morrison/Charlie Rose interview for many reasons. “Don't you understand that the people who do this thing, who practice racism, are bereft? There is something distorted about the psyche. It's a huge waste, and it's a corruption, and it's a distortion.”

The Sun and Daily Mail accused of 'fueling prejudice' in report on rising racist violence and hate

It cited Katie Hopkins’ infamous column in The Sun, where she likened refugees to “cockroaches” and sparked a blistering response from the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, and the same newspaper’s debunked claim over “1 in 5 Brit Muslims’ sympathy for jihadis”.  “ECRI urges the media to take stock of the importance of responsible reporting, not only to avoid perpetuating prejudice and biased information, but also to avoid harm to targeted persons or vulnerable groups,” it concluded.  Full Article: https://www.whytheracecardisplayed.com/post/the-sun-and-daily-mail-accused-of-fueling-prejudice-in-report-on-rising-racist-violence-and-hate

General election: Tory suspended after saying Holocaust events were 'exaggerated'

He said that in the discussions seven years ago, when he was 20, he referenced the views of discredited historian and Holocaust denier David Irving but had made clear in subsequent posts that he was not defending them. Mr Houghton said in a statement on Monday evening: "I apologize unreservedly for any hurt now caused by these comments and have been in contact with members of the Jewish Community in Aberdeen." He said he had "never held anti-Semitic or intolerant views". Full Article: https://www.whytheracecardisplayed.com/post/general-election-tory-suspended-after-saying-holocaust-events-were-exaggerated

Buttigieg Campaign Used Stock Photo of Kenyan Woman to Illustrate Plan for Black America

The photo of the woman kneeling and talking to a child, selected from an assortment of stock photos available for public reuse, was first posted over the summer as part of the rollout of Mr. Buttigieg’s “Douglass Plan,” billed as “a comprehensive investment in the empowerment of black America.” The plan includes health care, education and voting-rights reforms as well as proposals to address discrimination in policing and criminal justice. Mr. Buttigieg has failed to gain traction among black voters — a critical constituency in the path to the Democratic nomination — even as polls show he is building support in largely white Iowa. A poll of likely Democratic primary voters in South Carolina, released Monday by Quinnipiac University, found that Mr. Buttigieg had the support of less than 1 percent of black voters.

Abolishing whiteness has never been more urgent

The majority of Jews embraced whiteness as it became more readily available to them from the 1960s onwards, believing it offered unprecedented protection against any possible resurgent anti-Semitism. Ignatiev, however, saw the solution to Jews' problems, and those of the US at large, in abolishing it.

Why Colin Kaepernick wore a 'Kunta Kinte' shirt to his NFL workout

When Kaepernick arrived at the workout location, he was wearing a black t-shirt with the name "Kunta Kinte" written across the chest. Kunta Kinte was a character in the 1976 novel, "Roots," and chronicled the story of an African man enslaved and taken to America. The character may have been fictional, but the events were obviously not and Kaepernick wearing the shirt made a big statement as he took the public stage for the afternoon.
