The South African Human Rights Commission has found  black and mixed-race students at Dr. Viljoen Combined School were subjected to racist abuses by the staff.

Children at the school alleged staff members called them racist names, such as baboons and monkeys.

After an 18-month investigation, staff members and the head teacher were found to have exposed students to dehumanizing and racist treatment.

Representatives of Dr Viljoen Combined School told the BBC they would not “comment at this stage.”

They said they had not seen the report and would refer the matter to the school’s governing body.

Representatives of the Free State Department of Education, responsible for the school, say they will study the report and would hold their own investigation before taking any potential disciplinary action.

The SAHRC is an independent body set up after the end of white-minority rule in 1994 to investigate allegations of human rights abuses and hold public institutions accountable.

SiriusXM has fired Anthony Cumia, one half of comedy show, “The Opie & Anthony Show,” after a racist tirade on Twitter after he got a beatdown from a black woman in New York City.

Cumia claims he was assaulted by a woman in Times Square on Tuesday. His racist tirade on his Twitter feed is just despicable. He said he was trying to take pictures of the area when the woman was caught in the fram. She allegedly started punching him after objecting to being in the photographs. He responded by calling her a c**t. He then took to Twitter and raged violently for hours.

During his Twitter rant, Anthony Cumia says “savage violent animal f*cks prey on white people.”

Here are a few of Anthony Cumia’s tweets that got him fired:

Sirius issued a statement confirming Anthony Cumia’s termination:

“SiriusXM has terminated its relationship with Anthony Cumia of the Opie & Anthony channel. The decision was made, and Cumia informed, late Thursday, July 3, after careful consideration of his racially charged and hate-filled remarks on social media. Those remarks and postings are abhorrent to SiriusXM, and his behavior is wholly inconsistent with what SiriusXM represents.”

Cumia, who also tweeted “I hope she gets shot,” has since posted a message saying he plans to think things over during the holiday weekend before signing off with “F— Sirius.”

SELL-OUT: Clippers’ Owner Donald Sterling Donation to NAACP Led to Latest Award

SELL-OUT: Clippers’ Owner Donald Sterling Donation to NAACP Led to Latest Award

SELL-OUT:  The NAACP continues to prove its hypocrisy in the Donald Sterling controversy. Leon Jenkins, president of the Los Angeles NAACP that was slated to give Sterling a lifetime achievement award next month, admitted on CNN that the Clippers owner had given the organization money. Yes, money in exchange for an award.

It should be noted that the NAACP had given Donald Sterling a lifetime achievement award in 2009. That’s despite the racist billionaire slumlord being sued twice for discrimination by the federal government and once by legendary basketball player and former Clippers executive Elgin Baylor. Um, the NAACP took Sterling’s money and looked the other way.

Jenkins said, “It’s an insignificant amount of money, and we’re going to return it.” Um, really? Why bother giving it back because you got caught? The fact is Leon Jenkins should step down. He has proven himself to a laughingstock and a spineless leader. How do you take money from the person who settled the largest fine in a housing discrimination case is beyond me.

CarMax is the first sponsor to drop the Los Angeles Clippers after owner Donald Sterling’s alleged racist comments to girlfriend V. Stiviano were released to public.

TMZ reports, a representative for CarMax said, “CarMax finds the statements attributed to Clippers’ owner completely unacceptable.”

“These views directly conflict with CarMax’s culture of respect for all individuals. While we have been a proud Clippers sponsor for 9 years and have support the team, fans and community, these statements necessitate that CarMax end its sponsorship.”

Virgin America also dropped the Clippers. A rep told TMZ, “while we continue to support the fans and the players, Virgin America has made the decision to end its sponsorship of the L.A. Clippers.” State Farm has also put things on hold, for now.

Rev. Al Sharpton said:  “We applaud CarMax’s choice to withdraw sponsorship, and State Farm’s announcement that they will pause their relationship,” with the Los Angeles Clippers – @darrenrovell

Also among the sponsors fleeing Donald Sterling’s team en masse AQUAhydrate, which sells enhanced water; energy drink company Red Bull; hardware flooring company Lumber Liquidators; Kia automotive and auto title loan company LoanMart, which wrote on its  are Facebook page that it’s suspending its advertising and marketing relationship with the Clippers and monitoring the situation.

Rapper Snoop Dogg Slams Clippers’ Owner: “White-Bread Chickensh*t Motherf*cker”

The reactions to Los Angeles Clippers’ owner, Donald Sterling’s racist comments to his biracial girlfriend, V. Stiviano, are strong. He told her he does not want her publicly associating with black people all the time, including NBA legend Magic Johnson. Rapper Snoop Dogg (Snoop Lion) profanity-laced reaction to the racist comments, is perhaps the strongest I have seen thus far.

Here’s Snoop Dogg’s reaction (NSFW):

“A message to the motherf*cker that owns the Clippers, you bitch-ass redneck white-bread chickensh*t motherf**ker. F*ck you, your momma, and everything next to you, you racist piece of sh*t. F*ck you.”

Snoop Dogg’s reaction comes as CNN host Don Lemon said “I felt like I was listening to someone from the 1930s, 40s, or 50s.”

Sky Ferreira’s Latest Music Video Promotes Racist Stereotypes of Black Men

sky ferreira video 350x205 Sky Ferreiras Latest Music Video Promotes Racist Stereotypes of Black Men

Sky Ferreira’s Latest Music Video Promotes Racist Stereotypes of Black Men (Screengrab from video)

Sky Ferreira, who is currently on tour with Miley Cyrus, is under fire for newly released music video for her song “I Blame Myself,” in which she plays the leader of a black gang in Compton, Calif.

Ferreira says the video isn’t racist and that it’s demeaning to the “well spoken & aware” black actors involved to claim it as such. But wait, isn’t that comment racially insensitive?

The furor erupted surrounding the video earlier this week  and Sky Ferreira was slammed on Facebook and Twitter.

I am guessing Ms. Ferreira isn’t a racist person, but the video is racially insensitive. Period. It plays on a number of stereotypes about young black men. For example, in the opening shot, two black guys in a car drive up, to another black guy leaning on a tree. He looks around suspiciously…”Sup fellas, whatchy’all want?” They give him a glare. One of them makes some gestures with his hands, some type of code. The other understands and exclaims, “F*ck you, get the f*ck off my block.” Sky Ferreira shows up to save her gang of black men from these glaring villains. Are you kidding me?

Sky Ferreira’s defense of the video is equally shameful. In a poorly punctuated and long-winded Facebook post she argued that she chose her all-black dance crew because they were the “best ones” that came to auditions. Um, I guess these guys were the best people to audition for the roles of black thugs and black guys driving a car with jacked-up hydraulics. Then she throws in the fact that she has a “half-black brother.” Um, so that gives her the right to make a racially insensitive music video. Whatever.

Ohio teacher Gil Voigt was fired on Thursday after his comment to black student that “we don’t need another black president,” led to his suspension.

Voigt, who had been on unpaid leave since December, was fired after a labor hearing ended with a recommendation for termination.

Cincinnati.com reports the Fairfield Board of Education received a state referee’s decision that “there is good and just cause to terminate the teaching contract” of Gil Voigt. The board voted unamimously 4-0 to end his employment with the Butler County school system.

There are also reports that the referee cited other incidents in which Voigt made other racial or insulting remarks over the years.

Gil Voigt allegedly told a black student at Fairfield Freshmen School, who expressed his desire to follow President Barack Obama as a president, “we don’t need another black president.” Voigt previously claimed he had been misquoted by the student, who he described as troublesome.

He later told Fairfield officials that he told the student, “I think we can’t afford another president like Obama, whether he’s black or white.”

4 St. Anthony’s High School Students Expelled After Blackface, Confederate Flag Incidents

Four students at St. Anthony’s High School were expelled for two racist incidents involving the Confederate flag and blackface. You may think this Catholic school is in the Deep South, but no, it’s on Long Island. Shameful.

Four Catholic high school students on Long Island have been expelled after two senior boys brought a Confederate flag to a school event and two sophomore girls posted a blackface photo on social media, the school said.

The two events were separate, according to Gary Cregan, principal of St. Anthony’s High School.

The boys allegedly brought the flag to a school gathering on April 9. Teachers immediately took it away, and the students were suspended.

Two days later on Friday, the girls posted a photo of one of them in blackface, along with racist language, the school confirmed.
