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.

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...]

Guess What? The Criminal Justice System is Racist

Longtime readers of my blog will certainly not be surprised to hear that the criminal justice system is racist, but let's put more evidence onto the pile anyway.

Carlson: Pointing Out White Privilege is Racist

Fox News pretty boy and all-around annoying little twerp Tucker Carlson has no idea what white privilege is. He's been marinating in it his entire life, of course, but he has no idea what it means (ironically, that is what white privilege means).
