O’Reilly, Bolling Ignore Racist Drug Enforcement

Horowitz’ Idiotic Claims About Race and Slavery

Hey Look, More Racist and Sexist Tweets from Roger Stone

Roger Stone has been trying to delete as many of his racist, sexist and homophobic tweets as he can lately but there's just so many of them.

White Supremacists and Nazis Getting the Band Back Together

This weekend Georgia was the site of a gathering of various white supremacists, skinheads and neo-Nazis, who are apparently trying to bury the hatchet from past splits and schisms.

SC Sheriff: NAACP is Just Like the KKK

A county sheriff from South Carolina -- a Republican, of course -- told a Republican women's group that the NAACP is just like the KKK and that the most racist people in the country are minorities.

Harriet Tubman on $20 Bill Drives Racists Out of Their Minds

The Treasury Department has announced that Harriet Tubman will replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill, which is a great choice. First, because she is truly an American hero.

Trump confidante Roger Stone has been banned from CNN and MSNBC, but not by Fox of course, after a long series of racist, sexist and homophobic tweets.

Trump Pastor: There Are No Black People

Why Didn’t Blacks Support Ben Carson? Because They’re Evil, of Course

Jesse Lee Peterson, the deeply misogynist black right-winger who thinks racism doesn't exist and that women shouldn't have the right to vote, told gun fetishist Larry Pratt that the reason black people didn't support the candidacy of Ben Carson is because they're "in an evil state" and listening to Satan. … [Read more...]

Greta on the Argument About Atheists in Prison

One of the very common and highly annoying arguments I hear from my fellow atheists is that something like 99% of prison inmates are religious and atheists are underrepresented, therefore atheists are more moral.
