Some people worry about the possibility of a race war starting. Others are not only hoping for it, they're plotting to make it happen. The FBI arrested several white supremacists in Virginia who were allegedly plotting to kick start one by bombing and attacking black churches and synagogues in the area. So far they've been charged with weapons violations, but more serious charges should be coming soon. … [Read more...]

Trump Endorsed by White Supremacist Child Molester


Even in the strange netherworld of white supremacist politics and the American right wing, this story is simply bizarre. A white supremacist with decades of involvement with the KKK and Aryan Nation was convicted of molesting two young girls, and during the trial he held up a sign that said "vote for Trump." And immediately after being convicted, he reiterated both his racial hatred and his support for Trump. … [Read more...]

Confederate Flag Lover Tries to Bomb Walmart


A Mississippi man who apparently has a serious Confederate flag fetish tried to bomb a Walmart after threatening the company, along with several others, for not being sufficiently supportive of that flag. Thankfully, the guy doesn't know much about bombmaking so it didn't cause a lot of damage or kill anyone. … [Read more...]

White Supremacists Change Names Again


White supremacists, always eager to deny that they're racist assholes, keep trying to invent new terms. First they said they aren't white supremacists, they're white "separatists" or "nationalists." They've tried "race realists" and other terms. And at a recent confab they offered up a new one: "identitarians." But they still want their own enclave where they can escape those nasty dark people. … [Read more...]

Another Study Confirms Racial Profiling in Police Stops


As if we needed it, we now have another study that confirms that black drivers are significantly more likely to be pulled over than white drivers, but that white drivers are more likely to be found breaking the law with contraband (usually drugs or guns) in the car. This time the study is of a bunch of different cities around the country, not just one department or one geographical area. … [Read more...]

KKK, Confederates to Rally Against MLK Memorial at Stone Mountain


The state of Georgia plans to erect a monument to Martin Luther King on Stone Mountain, already home to a giant stone mural of Confederate soldiers, and the far-right racists are quite agitated over it. The KKK, the League of the South and other racist groups are planning a protest at the park on November 14 to voice their disapproval of allowing metaphorical negro blood taint their racial paradise. … [Read more...]

Obama Perfectly Explains Why Black Lives Matter

President Obama participated in a panel discussion on criminal justice last week and was asked about the Black Lives Matter movement and why it wasn't All Lives Matter. He answered it perfectly, pointing out that saying black lives matter does not mean they're the only lives that matter, but that black people have a specific problem with law enforcement that other groups do not have and that must be addressed. … [Read more...]

What Year Is This Again, Racism Edition


In Lewiston, Maine, an Asian man named Ben Chin is running for mayor, prompting backers of the Republican incumbent, Robert MacDonald, to put up incredibly racist signs referring to him as "Ho Chi Chin" with a crude caricature of an Asian on the signs. The local newspaper tweeted out this picture of the sign: … [Read more...]

We Must Preserve the Heritage We Never Had!


Here's a story that really tells you all we need to know about the ridiculous argument that the Confederate flag is just a celebration of our "heritage" and "history." A county in Tennessee that is famous for having been on the union side during the Civil War is debating whether to fly the Confederate flag over the county courthouse. And guess what argument they're trotting out? … [Read more...]

Peterson: Racism Does Not Exist


Jesse Lee Peterson, the black preacher and world class jackass who thinks women should not be allowed to vote, thinks that there is no such thing as racism, that it's just an illusion and does not exist. I sure wish that fantasy world that exists only in his head were real because this guy is orbiting Pluto or something. And, of course, he said this in a Worldnetdaily column. … [Read more...]

Wiles: Obama the ‘Most Racist Man Ever to Occupy the White House’

Screenshot from Youtube clip

As a straight white Christian man, Rick Wiles obviously knows bigotry when he sees it. I mean, who else are we to listen to when it comes to racism except people like him (or me)? So when he declares that Obama is "the most racist man ever to occupy the White House," we obviously have to take his views very seriously. And why is he the most racist? Because he criticized Columbus for his treatment of Native Americans. … [Read more...]

The state of Georgia has approved a plan to put up a memorial to Martin Luther King in the Stone Mountain state park. Appropriately, it will be a bell tower noting the line from King's I Have a Dream Speech, "Let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia." Naturally, and predictably, the pro-Confederate racists in the state are furious about this and threatening legal action lest they pollute their holy KKK site with negro stuff. … [Read more...]
