Racism at Live Oak FL Econo Lodge motel

A group of students from a Flint, Mich., high school got a rude lesson in racism during a college tour trip.

Brittany Clerkley and a group of about 90 adults and teens were wrapping up a college tour. On their way back to Flint, their bus had mechanical issues. They ended up spending the night at the Econo Lodge in Live Oak, Florida.

Coordinator Blake Odum says right after dinner, is when the trip took a much different and disturbing tone. “It was owned by white people. And they started taking pictures of all the kids as we were walking in and out of the hotel,” said student Melissa Blacque. “I heard one of the ladies, she said, ‘If I see one more of them, I’m calling the law,'” Odum said.

Blacque says the students were peaceful, but felt uncomfortable at the hotel. “They were calling us the N word and called Blake the N word. We were just like ‘whoa,'” Blacque said. Source: ABC12

I try to ignore the right wing bluster, but sometimes I just can’t ignore the load of crap unloaded on Obama-hating Fox News. A suggestion was made to bring back the explicitly racist literacy tests.Um, anything to keep non-white people from voting.

After Fox News reporter Jesse Watters interviewed several New Yorkers who could not identify Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio, Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade observed that “studies show that Americans are poorly informed on government and politics.”

“So, is it time to revisit a test for people to be able to vote?” he asked. “Does it bother you that your vote counts as much as somebody who does not know what’s going on?”

“More than I can say,” Coulter agreed. “I just think it should be, well for one thing, a little more difficult to vote. There’s nothing unconstitutional about literacy tests. Instead, we have ballots being given in 124 different languages. And I’m pretty sure Senate debates will not be taking place in Urdu. So, what are they voting on?”

Fox News wants the kind of tests, like poll taxes, that only white people can pass, like back in the days of overt racial discrimination. And while they are at it, they would be happy if women didn’t bother voting either. They would also love it if property ownership was the an automatic qualifier for people to vote. So much for RNC chief Reince Priebus’ minority outreach. That’s all just lip service.

Of course, they will make the argument that it was the Democrats who engaged in “fake literacy tests” used “after the Civil War” to “keep blacks from voting.” Of course, they have taken over from the Democratic Party on that front.

Racist Cupcakes

Racist Cupcakes:  A court forced French baker, Boulangerie Patisserie, to pull cupcakes of a naked man and woman made out of dark chocolate with pink lips, saying they were inciting “racial hatred.”

On Thursday morning a court in Grasse, in the Alpes-Maritimes department of south-eastern France, ordered the town to force the baker to remove the offensive pastries from his boulangerie, deeming them an “attack on human dignity”, Le Parisien reported.

The sweet pastries in question, named “Gods” and “Goddesses” are in the form of obese people, covered in dark chocolate with over-sized sexual parts.

While the baker who sells the little men and women filled with shortbread and chocolate mousse saw the cakes as inoffensive, for one anti-racism group in France, they were anything but. Source: The Local

Figueroa, the host of “El Gordo Y laFlaca,” said in Spanish, “You know Michelle Obama looks like she is of the cast of “The Planet Of The Apes” while pointing to a photograph of the First Lady.

Whatever…Rodner Figueroa is now out of a job and Mrs. Obama remains a beautiful black woman.

Huffington Post:  “In an extensive open letter to the First Lady, Figueroa offered a formal apology for what was said but explained that it had been taken out of context.

Parker Rice ID’d as 1 of 2 Students Expelled from OU Over Racist Chants

Parker Rice has been identified as one of two students expelled from the University of Oklahoma over racist chants. OU president David Boren has also ordered the members of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity to move out of campus house.

Rice was described as the conductor of the sickening chant. No surprise that he graduated from an elite Catholic school. It is thought that he did not live in the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity house. He graduated from Jesuit College Preparatory School in Dallas.

Parker Rice is a freshman at OU.

Can’t wait to hear his parents get on TV and say their son isn’t capable of such racist behavior.

Rudy Giuliani Playing Victim After Getting Death Threats for Obama Comments

The right wing can dish it but they can’t take it. Rudy Giuliani is now playing the victim after his office allegedly received death threats over the despicable comments he made about President Obama not loving America and not being raised the same way as he and others. Are we supposed to feel sorry for him?

Giuliani doubled down, well, more like flailing to stay afloat. The latest is that he is saying Obama was introduced to communism at age nine. I didn’t realize Rudy Giuliani grew up with the president. So much for Giuliani’s reputation as “America’s Mayor.” That legacy is now in tatters.

Krispy Kreme Apologizes After “KKK Wednesday” Promotion Backlash

Krispy Kreme Apologizes After “KKK Wednesday” Promotion Backlash

Doughnut chain Krispy Kreme’s U.K. division issued an apology after it suffered an enormous backlash on social media for its latest promotion:  “KKK Wednesday.” Um, that was a really, really bad idea. Can you say Ku Klux Klan?

The sign was displayed at the store at St. Stephen’s Shopping Center. It included “KKK Wednesday” as part of the Krispy Kreme Klub. In case they have been living under a rock, KKK stands for Ku Klux Klan, the white supremacist group that terrorized blacks during the late 1800s to the 1960s.

Krispy Kreme released a statement saying,  “Krispy Kreme apologizes unreservedly for the inappropriate name of a customer promotion at one of our stores.” “The promotion was never intended to cause offense. All material has been withdrawn and an internal investigation is currently underway.”

All the social media manager at Krispy Kreme needed to do was Google KKK and he or she would see that wouldn’t be a good idea to use those initials.
