Donald Trump’s 1970s Racial Discrimination Rental Problem Comes Back to Bite Him

Well what do you know, it would seem Donald Trump’s racial discrimination problem has been revealed. According to Salon, early in Trump’s career, his New York real estate company was sued by the federal government for discriminating against potential black renters. This is a prime example of why his comments about “the blacks” and needling President Obama over his birth certificate and questioning his qualifications to get accepted into Columbia and Harvard, plus his “basketball court” quip, should be viewed as racist. Just yesterday he a black reporter, Inside Edition’s Les Trent,  “Look I know you are a big Obama fan.” Really? Does this idiot think every black person is a fan of Barack Obama? Isn’t that making an assumption based on race?

The New York Times reported (excerpted from Salon):

… the Government contended that Trump Management had refused to rent or negotiate rentals “because of race and color.” It also charged that the company had required different rental terms and conditions because of race and that it had misrepresented to blacks that apartments were not available.

Black Judge Ilona Holmes Ordered from Florida Home at Gunpoint After Police Mix-Up During Burglary Call

Black circuit court judge Ilona Holmes forced from Florida home at gunpoint after a police mix-up on a burglary call.

Florida circuit court judge Ilona Holmes, one of the only black justices in Broward County, was forced out of her home at gunpoint after a police mix-up over a burglary. She was reportedly holding a handgun when she came out of her home, that was surrounding by deputies with guns drawn.

It was only after she had placed the pistol on the front lawn that one of the officers recognized her and realized there had been a misunderstanding. The judge’s sister, Carmita Scarlett, told NBC Miami that the drama happened as the family was clearing away after enjoying a meal together on Easter Sunday.

At about 8.20pm, police received a call from a neighbor who thought there may have been a burglary in the house next door. The same neighbor also called the judge’s family to warn them about her suspicions.

So when police sidled up the side of the house thinking Carmita’s husband, Neville, who was washing dishes, was the intruder, the family were worried that they were the robbery targets.

Carmita looked out of the window and claims she saw a man pointing a gun at her. ‘There’s a man with a gun and he’s going to shoot me,’ she yelled. ‘I thought it was the robber,’ she told NBC. The judge, who carries a legal firearm, came running into the kitchen and pulled out her gun. Source

Shameful. This is the same type of over-zealousness by cops that led to the death of Katherine Johnston in her Atlanta home a few years ago. Then they wonder why blacks have a deep distrust of law enforcement. The black guy is always wrong in the eyes of many.

Superman to Renounce U.S. Citizenship After Consulting with President’s National Security Advisor

Superman to give up his U.S. citizenship. This is laughable but here’s an excerpt of an article from Comics Alliance:

The key scene takes place in “The Incident,” a short story in Action Comics #900 written by David S. Goyer with art by Miguel Sepulveda. In it, Superman consults with the President’s national security advisor, who is incensed that Superman appeared in Tehran to non-violently support the protesters demonstrating against the Iranian regime, no doubt an analogue for the recent real-life protests in the Middle East. However, since Superman is viewed as an American icon in the DC Universe as well as our own, the Iranian government has construed his actions as the will of the American President, and indeed, an act of war.

Briton Simon Ledger Arrested on Racism Charges for Singing "Everbody was Kung Fu Fighting" After Man of Chinese Descent Complains

British singer Simon Ledger arrested on racism charges for sing “Everybody was Kung Fu Fighting” after man of Chinese descent complains.

Oh no, say it ain’t so! British police arrested Simon Ledger on racism charges after a man of Chinese descent complained about his performance of the song “Kung Fu Fighting,” according to the Sun. Ledger and his band were performing the 1970s classic at the Driftwood Beach Bar on the Isle of Wight off the southern coast of England. Sorry, but that song, sung by Carl Douglas, has been around for decades and I can’t recall hearing any people of Chinese descent complain before now. What a waste of time.

First Ever All African American Team to Participate in 100 Year Old Ski to Sea Competition

First ever all African American team to participate in Ski to Sea competition Memorial Day weekend.

First ever all African American team to participate in Ski to Sea, slated to take place Memorial Day weekend. According to the Seattle Medium, this is a first in the 100 year existence of Ski to Sea.

A Ski to Sea team consists of 8 racers (2 in the canoe leg) for the seven race legs — cross country skiing, downhill skiing/snowboarding, running, road biking, canoeing, mountain biking, and kayaking. The award winning race showcases Bellingham and has become so popular that race organizers have had to put a limit on the number of registered teams at 500. The Ski to Sea weekend festival also boasts a grand parade the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend and even has a children’s version of the race the week prior to Memorial Day weekend. The present day Ski to Sea Race was started in 1973 which continued the tradition of the 1911 Mount Baker Marathon, America’s original adventure race.

Kim Harris, a member of a local African-American professional group in Bellingham called BASOW (Brothers and Sisters of Whatcom County), dreamt of participating in Ski to Sea and decided to pitch the idea to BASOW for the team. Five months later, The One Point 5 Percent was born. Team #414 consists of Kim Harris (Cross Country Ski), Freddie Payne (Snowboard), Vinson Latimore (Road Run), Ivan Patrick (Road Bike), Russell Harris Jr. (Canoe), Fred Payne (Canoe), Lysander Hubbard (Mountain Bike), and Lahaji Thomas (Kayak).

We wish all the participants the very best and congratulate this team of African American trailblazers!

Reeve Boleware, 12, Charged with Murdering Mother’s Fiancee Jeffrey Reece For Threatening Family

Reeve Boleware, 12, inconsolable after telling 911 operator he killed his mother’s fiance, Jeffrey Reece, after he threatened he & his mother.

SHOCK: Reeve Boleware, 12, has been charged with murder after killing his mother’s fiancee, Jeffrey Reece, in Sunbury, OH. According to the Daily Mail, Boleware called 911 after allegedly shooting Reece at least once behind the ear with a .22 caliber pistol.

The blond youngster told the operator: ‘I’m 12 years old. I just shot my step daddy. He was threatening me and my mom.’

Reeve’s mother, Wendy, told the operator her son shot Mr Reece twice. ‘He shot him and then when he shot him again … because, he said, “I don’t think he’s dead”,’ she said.

In the background of the call, Reeve can be heard comforting his hysterical mother. ‘He was threatening us. Nothing’s going to happen,’ he told her. Both Ms Boleware and her son told 911 operators that Mr Reece had threatened them. Ms Boleware said: ‘He said: “Your life is in danger.”

‘He said, “y’all need to get the F out of here.”‘ Source

Words, can’t explain the sadness I feel for this child. Still, he took matters into his own hands rather than calling the police to get help. I have to wonder out loud if Mr. Reece was previously abusive to the family and the child just reacted to what he thought was coming?

Facebook Feud Leads to 12 Year Old Boy Being Shot by 14 Year Old Outside South Side Chicago School

Facebook feud leads to 12 year old fighting for his life after being shot by 14 year old outside South Side Chicago elementary school.

A Facebook feud has left a 12 year old Chicago boy fighting for his life after being shot in the back of the head. According to the Daily Mail, the boy reportedly exchanged insults on Facebook with a 14-year-old a short time before the shooting Tuesday afternoon. Where this 14 year old got a gun remains to be see, but he allegedly opened fire on the younger boy as classes were dismissed at Cook Elementary School in South Side Tuesday. Pandemonium broke out after the gunman started shooting before fleeing the scene. He has since turned himself in to police and it is said both boys were in gangs.

President Obama Releases Copy of Long-Form Birth Certificate, What Now?

The White House has released a copy of President Obama’s long form birth certificate. What now? Of course, we all know they will move the goal post and find an issue with this document. The question already floating out there is whether it’s authentic or not. No matter what he provides to prove his citizenship, his critics will keep moving the goal post. Of course, Donald Trump is taking credit for the latest move by the White House to wave a white flag to its critics. I wouldn’t have released a damn thing. The more the right pushed this flawed argument, the better it is for Obama, given the abysmal poll numbers for the Republican presidential hopefuls. Obama capitulated to the birther movement, led by Trump. He gave in to his critics. Some say he took the high road. Maybe so, but I wouldn’t have caved to this windbag.

Donald Trump is calling for him to release college records. Since when is that a requirement for presidential candidates? John McCain, George W. Bush and George H. Bush certainly weren’t asked to release theirs. This is about race, plain and simple. It is unfathomable for us to have a black president, in the eyes of some people. People like Rush Limbaugh, Donald Trump, birthers, Franklin Graham, Mike Savage, Andrew Breitbart, Michele Bachmann, Sarah Palin, Ann Coulter and others, will try to discredit him by any means at their disposal. It’s all about race, pure and simple. The Drudge Report was only too happy to run with the caption “Donald Trump takes credit.” What these rich white people are saying is that a natural born black man has no right to even dream of being president of this country, much less actually winning such a feat. Some message being sent to our kids.

All “the blacks” on “Celebrity Apprentice” (Lil Jon, Dionne Warwick, Star Jones, Nene Leakes and Latoya Jackson) need to walk of the set and tell Donald Trump to kiss their a** and stop with the racist BS. President Obama said it best, “people can’t be making stuff up and providing sideshow and carnival barkers.” That’s just what Donald Trump is, a “CARNIVAL BARKER” and an egotist. Bring it on Donald. I hope you will be the Republican presidential candidate in 2012. Please pick Donald with his history of bankrupting companies, poor relationship skills and loud mouth who capitalized off his father’s name and legacy. Release your transcripts from University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business. What they really want to talk about is that Obama attending Harvard and Columbia courtesy of affirmative action. Yeah, another code for racism being tossed around by his critics.

Donald Trump tells President Obama to “get off his basketball court” and go after OPEC.

Isn’t the reference to “basketball court” a dig at Obama’s race? Why not say golf course? CLICK HERE to watch video.
