Appeasing Racist and Bigots: A Love Story About Dunkin' Donuts & Lowes

December 13, 2011 by Andrew17

Politics, government, healthcare, news, political news

It’s time to rethink our values and fight for what’s right! Over the past three years we have turned (all of us) a blind eye to clear and unapologetic racism from people, organizations and yes corporations towards Muslims. Back in 2009 Rachel Ray was in a major Dunkin' Donuts campaign, in the commercial Rachel Ray was wearing a Scarf that some viewers felt looked too much like traditional Muslim fashion.

If you recall conservative commentator Michelle Malkin (and other conservative bloggers) demanded that Dunkin' Donuts stop their campaign featuring Rachel Ray or risk a boycott. Why you ask? Well, Michelle Malkin and other conservative bloggers said Rachel Ray scarf in the commercial looked like a kaffiyeh, the traditional Arab headdress. They said it symbolize Muslim extremism and terrorism.     Read more

What Excuses Do We Have To Lose Faith In The Future?

January 27, 2011 by Nicholas Barrett

If you've read my (other) blog before you might have noticed a pattern, I hiss, groan and constantly moan about the state of a world that doesn't seem to be moving forward. I have little money and almost everything I see is trying to sell me something.    Read more

Living in a 'Post-Racist' Society

August 20, 2010 by Tina Dupuy

The MSNBC documentary series Lock Up ran a story earlier this month about a Maricopa County Jail inmate charged with identity theft named Cecil Kunkel. The 29-year-old Kunkel has a swastika tattooed on top of his "skinhead." He's covered in "white power" slogans and imagery. The only ink-free spot on him is an empty space in the shape of another swastika over his heart.    Read more

Race Against Time

Race Against Time
Overt acts of racism can be limited by laws or curbed by social pressure, but an actual shift in the nation's consciousness takes generations to accomplish

One headline after another seems to confirm that racism remains a serious problem in America. Yet, while deeply disturbing, the situation is neither unexpected nor necessarily an indication of a significant shift in the nation's character.     Read more

Tea Parties Mark a Milestone in Civil Rights

Milestone in Civil Rights
Their sentences were commuted on the condition they leave the state.

The most pivotal scene in our nation's recent civil rights history was not as some would assume, electing the more qualified, younger and dynamic presidential candidate (of a different party than George W. Bush) who also happened to be half African, - but it was, in fact, the self-proclaimed Tea Party protesters hurling racial epithets at members of Congress.    Read more

INCIVILITY? HARDLY – IT’S RACISM, PURE AND SIMPLE

March 24, 2010 by cherose228

I’ve been saying, ever since the Tea Party Movement started, that it was a racist organization. I’ve been to several Tea Party functions, and I have seen NO people of any colour other than white at any of them. Look at the photographs of their “convention”, for example. WHERE are the people of colour? And echo answers. I’ve also been saying that the Tea Party Movement is homophobic – and it is. If nothing else, the events of this Saturday and Sunday past prove that beyond any doubt, reasonable or otherwise. I'll add that I've also been told that A) I was lying; B) I was wrong; C) I was a conspiracy theorist and D) Well, you're a liberal, and you don't understand what's going on.

Wrong on all counts, folks. I understand what's going on, and believe me, I wish that I didn't.    Read more

The One About If You Want To Be Really Safe Go Live In A Bubble!

(This article originally appeared at The One About...)
Okay folks, I'm taking a little break for a couple of days from The Twelve Days Of Blogmas. It will resume though I promise. It's just that in some ways doing reposts can end up being more work than original posts. Funny but true. Plus, well no matter how much I may despise most of our politicians, it seems like they always manage to do something to get my attention.    Read more

Pardon for black boxer jailed for interracial dating waits on Obama

October 19, 2009 by THE POLITICUS

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The White House refused to indicate Monday whether President Obama will issue a posthumous pardon for Jack Johnson, the African-American boxing champion convicted in 1913 for dating a white woman.

The House of Representatives on July 29 unanimously passed a resolution urging Obama to grant a pardon; the Senate passed a similar measure by a voice vote on June 24.

The push for a rare posthumous pardon has been spearheaded for years by Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, and Rep. Peter King, R-New York, two of Congress' top boxing enthusiasts.    Read more

Katie Halper's Top 10 Reasons the US Isn't Getting its Panties in a Bunch Over Honduras

July 9, 2009 by Living Liberally

Crossposted from livingliberally.org
Let's face it. The news media isn't covering it. The US Government has barely mumbled a coherent word about it. But why is the US so unsure of how to react to the ousting of democratically-elected Honduran President Zelaya, his unplanned pajama trip to Costa Rica and the Honduran military's subsequent, violent clashes with protestors?

Laughing Liberally comedian Katie Halper posted a Top 10 to explain why the US has kept the Honduran coup and our shameful history of instigation in the region in the political freezer, as American concern for Latin American politics wrongfully continues to teeter on the edge of oblivion.    Read more
