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.

#SMH: ‘White Man March’ Protests Blacks Having Same Rights as Whites

#SMH: NYC ‘White Man March’ Protests Blacks Having Same Rights as Whites

A group of racist wingnuts organized a march, “White Man March,” that’s scheduled to take place on March 15 to protest what they call the “anti-white” agenda that “allows” blacks to have the same rights as white people. SMH. That’s all I can do.

Here’s the scoop from Gothamist

Runnin’ Scared picked up on the latest groovy happenings in the white supremacist world; the “worldwide” [White Man March] event, which has been scheduled for Saturday March 15th, was organized by 30-year-old Massachusetts resident Kyle Hunt. Hunt, who graduated from Amherst College with a double major in psychology and theater and dance, has written extensively about his hopes for the rallies:

“We are planning to show that White people are organized and impassioned, that we know what the anti-white agenda is all about, and that we are dedicated to waking up as many of our folk as possible. We will make it clear that we will not sit idly by as our race is discriminated against, mocked, displaced, and violently attacked, all of which amount to white genocide, according to the United Nation’s own definition of genocide.

This is why one of our big messages, which will be displayed on many large banners, is “DIVERSITY” = WHITE GENOCIDE (#WhiteGenocide). These banners will spread the message to the public at large in the most effective way possible.”

I guess they picked the wrong city to hold the “White Man March,” since New York City has some of the blackest white people in the country. Racism is alive and well. For those who thought we are in a post-racial America because we have a black president are sadly deluded.

The ‘White Man March’ sparked mockery of the organizer and the event:

Prince on Entertainment Industry Racism: Black People Don’t Get Second Chances

Prince on Entertainment Industry Racism: Black People Don’t Get Second Chances

Prince says black entertainers have to work a little harder than “general market” folks and aren’t given a second chance in film and music.  He spoke out about racism in the entertainment industry during an interview with the Guardian UK:

Prince has spoken out about racism in the entertainment industry, claiming that black people aren’t given a “second chance” in film and music.

During a Mojo interview with the singer at a Caribbean island hideaway, Prince criticised the music business, explaining, “It’s box office. I can’t have something like The Great Gatsby on my hands. Didn’t you know that black people don’t get a second chance?”

“It’s like Chris Rock said: Leonardo DiCaprio can make one bad movie after another, and he just keeps going. Chris Rock makes a bad movie, and he doesn’t work again. Black people aren’t allowed to make mistakes.”

Um, guess the Purple One wasn’t really feeling “The Great Gatsby,” was he?

3 White Ole Miss Students Could Face Charges for Hanging Noose on James Meredith Statue

3 White Ole Miss Students Could Face Charges for Hanging Noose on James Meredith Statue

The University of Mississippi said the students involved in hanging a noose around the neck of James Meredith statue could face criminal charges. The Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity said the men were part of its chapter at Ole Miss. The chapter was suspended.

The university said its inquiry led law enforcement officials to seek interviews with three students, all of them white 19-year-old freshmen from Georgia. But the students, whom the university did not identify because of an educational privacy law, refused through their lawyers to meet with the authorities unless investigators secured arrest warrants. Source:  NY Times

It’s no surprise that the three unidentified students have lawyered up and their attorney are refusing to allow them to be questioned without arrest warrants. Here’s more from WTOK:

Police on Sunday found a noose tied around the neck of the statue, along with an old Georgia flag with a Confederate battle emblem in its design. The design has since been updated to exclude the emblem.

University spokesman Danny Blanton said Friday the school’s findings have been turned over to the district attorney’s office. Blanton said the university will also proceed with internal disciplinary action through a judicial panel that consists of both faculty and students.

District Attorney Ben Creekmore did not immediately respond to a message left by The Associated Press. However, he told WMC-TV in Memphis that criminal charges would be difficult.

Creekmore said investigators and prosecutors have looked into several misdemeanors as possible charges, but he said criminal charges were unlikely by his office because the statue was not physically damaged, and the suspects did not appear to be trespassing.

The parents of the Phillipsburg High School wrestling team members must be really proud of their kids after a racist photo surfaces of them posing with a black dummy hanging from the ceiling. Two of the members of the wrestling team are also seen wearing pointed hoods like Ku Klux Klan garb.

The dummy appears to be wearing a wrestling shirt of the team’s competitor, Paulsboro High School, which is located just outside Philadelphia.

The school district has launched an investigation after the racist photo surfaced. Just so you know, Phillipsburg is located in New Jersey, 19 miles northeast of Allentown, Pa.

Was Alfred Wright, Brother of “American Idol” Contestant, Victim of Racist Murder?

Was Alfred Wright, Brother of “American Idol” Contestant, Victim of Racist Murder?

Was Alfred Wright, the brother of “American Idol” contestant Savion, the victim of a racist murder because he was allegedly having affair with relative of a white police officer? Wright was found dead last November with his eyes, several teeth, left ear and his tongue missing. The authorities claim he died from a drug overdose.

Alfred Wright lived in Jasper, Tx., which is known for the murder of James Byrd Jr. in 1998, after he was tied to the back of a pick-up truck and dragged for three miles along an asphalt road by white supremacists.

Radar Online is reporting that a source said Alfred Wright was dating the white relative of someone in law enforcement. The source said, “You can’t do that in East Texas. If you’re a black man, you’ll get killed.They still have cross burnings in that area!”

Wright’s wife said she found three charges that were supposedly made by him at local hotels while she and their children were away in the month before his death.

Alfred Wright’s father, Douglas Wright who was one of the first people on the scene when his body was found, told CNN that “he was just, if I might say, he was neatly laid. He was neatly laid.”He added, “what was weird about his sock” was that it “was clean and his sock was pulled up with his phone stuck in it as if he was in a Sunday school class. Neat. His tennis shoes was very clean.”

 

Michael Dunn Compared Himself to Rape Victim in Newly Released Jailhouse Calls

Audio Calls: Michael Dunn Compared Himself to Rape Victim for Murder of Jordan Davis

In newly released audio of phone calls made by Michael Dunn, who shot unarmed black teen Jordan Davis, said he was both the victor and the victim, even compared himself to a rape victim. He made racially charged comments about his fellow inmates. Why this stuff didn’t come into evidence during his trial is beyond me.

Recordings of nine calls from December 2012 released by the State Attorney’s Office Monday follows the earlier release of letters from Dunn disparaging African Americans. In one, he said, “The more time I am exposed to these people, the more prejudiced against them I become.” A jury found Dunn guilty Saturday on several counts of attempted second degree murder for shooting ten rounds into a car full of teens, but the jury was deadlocked on the question of whether Dunn was guilty of first degree murder for shooting and killing Jordan Davis.

In a call to his fiancée Rhonda Rouer, Dunn said:

I was the one that was being preyed upon and I fought back. It’s not quite the same but it made me think of like the old TV shows and movies where like how the police used to think when a chick got raped going, “Oh, it’s her fault because of the way she dressed.” I’m like, “So it’s my fault (laughing) because I asked them to turn their music down. I got attacked and I fought back because I didn’t want to be a victim and now I’m in trouble. I refused to be a victim and now I’m incarcerated.”

Dunn doesn’t explain how he was “attacked.” The shooting occurred after Dunn pulled up in a Jacksonville convenience store next to a sport utility vehicle with several teen boys. Tension erupted after he asked the boys to turn down their music. Dunn says he shot into the vehicle in self-defense because Davis threatened to kill him from within his vehicle and held up a gun, but no gun was found anywhere at the scene.

“I’m the f*** victim here,” he said, laughing, during one of the phone calls. “I was the one who was victimized … I’m the victor, but I was the victim too.”

During the call with Rouer, he also complained about being in a jail cell by himself, saying, “But I guess it would be better than being in a room with them animals.” He added a short while later, “I was in a room with three black guys,” CBS News reports. Source: Think Progress

Michael Dunn’s daughter, Rebecca Dunn, broke her silence last night, claiming her father isn’t the person they are portraying in the media. Um, how does she explain those racist letters and phone calls? How does she explain his disparaging comments about rape victims? It’s really unconscionable that the prosecution didn’t bring the jailhouse phone calls and letters into the trial or even talk more about Jordan Davis.

SHAME: Irina Rodnina, Who Tweeted Racist Photo of President Obama, Lit Olympic Flame

Russian figure skater Irina Rodnina, who sparked outrage with a tweet featuring a doctored and racist photograph of President Obama and Michelle Obama with a banana, played a prominent role in the opening ceremonies of the Sochi Winter Olympics.

Mashable: Friday’s rather spectacular opening ceremony for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, was capped by the ceremonial lighting of the Olympic Cauldron. This is a huge honor, one that Russia bestowed upon acclaimed figure skater Irina Rodnina and hockey legend Vladislav Tretyak. Rodnina is also a member of parliament of Vladimir Putin’s United Russia political party.

The lighting itself went smoothly, but another problem soon arose: In a matter of minutes, people began realizing that Rodnina posted a racist, doctored photo of Barack and Michelle Obama on Twitter just five months ago. The tweet, which has since been deleted, caused a stir when Rodnina first posted it on Sept. 13, 2013. The photo depicted the Obamas sitting together at an event, the president with his mouth apparently full of food. In the photo Rodnina tweeted, an image of a banana had been superimposed onto the foreground of the photo, making it seem as though the Obamas were staring intently at the piece of fruit. In some parts of Europe, including Russia, it’s not uncommon for black soccer players to be insulted with fruit and monkey sounds by fans at matches.

Rodnina tweeted the photo without any added commentary, then deleted it soon after backlash flared.

Sandy Rios: “Bitter Black People” Are the Blame for White Americans’ Racism

Sandy Rios: “Bitter Black People” Are the Blame for White Americans’ Racism

Right wing evangelical hatred:  Christian radio host Sandy Rios claims “racist black people” are the ones constantly bringing up race and that white Americans were no longer racist. Um, right.

All Voices: Last week, we were treated to the rantings of a Christian radio host who argued vehemently that white Americans were no longer racist. But, just in case they are, it is no fault of their own. Rather, “racist black people” by constantly bringing up race have brought out the racist demon in white folks.

Her name is Sandy Rios, of American Family Radio. She was downright offended when a caller accused her of racism:

“I think the racist garbage coming from the—uh, a lot of blacks right now who are just filled with bitterness and rage is just amazing to me,” Rios said. “It is racism, I am seeing it constantly here in D.C., you know, I think—and it’s causing white citizens to become more racist than they ever were.”

And then she dipped her toe into a little historiography, referring to the original white people of America’s Germanic tribal heritage—those British Puritans/Pilgrims who were the original thieves of Indian lands and slave masters and dealers in African flesh. These severely devout people justified, and thanked their Christian God for, their obvious superiority, their separateness, their whiteness, and their “civilized” condition vis-a-vis the red “savages” by whom they were surrounded. They thought it only fitting and proper — ordained — that those selfsame savages had no choice but to patiently show them how to cope with the raging and unforgiving “wild” land, the wilderness, as it were:

“I think for the most part, the American Anglo-Saxon crew really has moved past racism, they did it quite a long time ago,” she said.
It should come as no surprise that Rios is a Fox News contributor as well. She then expounded upon precisely why white racism is no more, a mere unfortunate chapter in America’s otherwise glorious past. You see, white supremacy had demonstrably ended with the end of racial segregation. But, even more, white America had elected a black president.

“I mean, they did elect Barack Obama twice, so I think it’s not nearly the issue in the white community that it was in the ’50s, sure it isn’t, or the 60s—it just isn’t,” she said. “But it seems to be raging, racism seems to be absolutely raging in the black community.” And so, black racism accounts for the “recent” rise in racist feelings among whites. “I think what’s causing it is people like Barack Obama and Eric Holder, who can’t say enough and stir the pot enough to create anger and hatred and bitterness,” Rios said.

She equated the rise of black racism with feminism: “You know, they do the same thing with women, it’s the same thing in feminism, that’s why I’ve never been a feminist. I hate feminism.”

Michelle Obama Continues Hawaiian Vacation, Breitbart Readers Spew Racist Venom

The wingnuts at Breitbart couldn’t help but scare up some racist frenzy over First Lady Michelle Obama staying over in Hawaii as a birthday gift. Joel Pollack couldn’t help himself, he just had to throw it out for the site’s racist fans to have a feeding frenzy. All you have to do is utter the name MICHELLE OBAMA and all hell breaks loose.

Here’s an excerpt of the Breitbart racist freak-out from Little Green Footballs:

Look, if you were a gay-man who was married to this knuckledragger…
