” As John noted yesterday, without question the most obnoxious story of the week was Starbucks proposing to have its baristas engage customers in a “conversation” about race, even though all such “conversations” amount to “agree with us or shut up.” I suspect underneath this is confirmation of my thesis that most majors in ethnic & gender studies find that Starbucks is their best employment opportunity with said degrees, so why not.  Glenn Reynolds suggests we take them up on it, but do so at the drive-through window at peak rush hour times with a long line of cars behind us.”

” Meanwhile, a Facebook pal in Colorado sends this note:

  If you take the total population of the zip codes in Denver where Starbucks are located (using the starbucks.com locator), those populations are about 6.0% black. According to the 2013 American Community Survey, Denver as a whole is 22.4% black.”

 

 

 

 

   If you needed further proof of Starbucks’ hypocrisy on the race issue a quick look at their management shows a stunning lack of color . Continued at Powerline

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bloomberg Poll: Race Relations Have Worsened Under Obama

 

 

 

 

” December 7 (Bloomberg) — The Bloomberg Politics Poll, conducted December 3-5 for Bloomberg Politics by
Selzer & Co. of Des Moines, IA, is based on interviews with 1,001 U.S. adults ages 18 or older.

  Interviewers with Quantel Research of Ogden, Utah, contacted households with randomly selected landline and cell phone telephone numbers supplied by Survey Sampling International. Interviews were administered in English.

  Percentages based on the full probability sample may have a maximum margin of error of plus or minus 3.1
percentage points. This means that if this survey were repeated using the same questions and the same methodology, 19 times out of 20, the findings would not vary from the percentages shown here by more than plus or minus 3.1percentage points. Results based on smaller samples of respondents—such as by gender or age—have a larger margin of error. Responses were weighted by age and race to reflect the general population based on recent census data.

Immigration Activist Suggests Race May Be Why GOP Opposes Obama Executive Action — Then It Was Trey Gowdy’s Turn

 

 

 

” Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) interrogated Marielena Hincapie, the executive director of the National Immigration Law Center, during a Tuesday House hearing on President Barack Obama’s executive action on immigration reform after she seemingly suggested race may be the basis behind the GOP’s opposition to the unilateral action.

“ I could’ve sworn in response to a question you received… you suggested race is the basis for why we may have this constitutional perspective,” Gowdy said to Hincapie. “Did I understand you correctly?”

“ I believe I was responding to the question about, is there an explanation about why…” Hincapie began before being cut off.

“ Well let me offer another explanation to you, OK? Not a single Republican who is here right now has ever served under a Republican president — not one. So I hope I do live long enough to hold a Republican president to the exact same standard that I am holding this one. But for you to run to race as the explanation for why we hold the position that we do.”

Is Loretta Lynch Another Eric Holder? Her Troubling Past

 

 

 

 

 

 

” The early signs are that Loretta Lynch may share some of the same troubling views as outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder, which makes it even more important that the Senate do a thorough review and vetting of her nomination by President Obama to be the new attorney general.

  This is particularly true for those who understand how important the rule of law is to our constitutional system, something that Eric Holder has damaged during his tenure.

  Lynch, who is the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York (which includes Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island and Nassau and Suffolk Counties), has made it clear that she would continue Holder’s war on election integrity.

  In a speech at the Long Beach Martin Luther King Center in New York in January, Lynch claimed that efforts to improve the integrity of the election process were an attempt “to take back” what Martin Luther King, Jr. had fought for and that state legislatures were trying to “reverse” the gains made in voting.  Lynch made it clear she approved of the Justice Department’s lawsuits against states such as North Carolina to stop voter ID laws and changes in early voting and same-day registration rules, saying such suits “will continue.”

  In her speech, Lynch apparently did not realize the irony of standing in front of a picture of Nelson Mandela while making this false claim against voter ID laws, given that South Africa has a much stricter voter ID requirement that was supported by Mandela.  Members of the Senate owe it to voters to question Lynch intensely on this issue and should be troubled at the prospects of anyone who would continue Eric Holder’s policy of going after states for trying to protect the integrity of the election process. “

 

Here’s an idea , how about we get an Attorney General that works for everyone and not just one race …

What’s Racist, What’s Not …. As Of Friday, Oct. 3, 2014

 

 

 

 

 

” Liberals tend to devote a significant portion of their daily lives to proving how not racist they are. One particularly expedient way of doing this is to declare that something a conservative has said or done is totally racist, and then to place oneself in opposition to the thing that was racist: “See, I’m not a racist!”

  As result, the List of Things That Are Racist has grown incomprehensibly long.  The Free Beacon‘s devotion to public service obligates us to provide this list (not exhaustive by any means) of what liberals do and do not consider to be racist.

Poll: African Americans Think Race Relations Have Gotten Worse Since 2009

 

Obama Race Relations

 

 

” Fewer African Americans say blacks and whites get along well today than felt that way in 2009, according to a new Pew Research Center/USA Today poll. From 2007 to 2009, the number of black respondents who said blacks and whites get along “very well” or “pretty well” increased seven percentage points, to 76 percent. But since 2009, the share of black respondents who had a positive view of race relations has dropped twelve points, to 64 percent. Similarly, white respondents who thought blacks and whites got along well increased three percentage points from 2007 to 2009, but decreased five percentage points from 2009 to 2014. “

Modern Liberalism Explained By Evan Sayet

 

 

 

   This man explains liberalism as it exists in it’s present form . The above video is the condensed version of his speech . Below is the entire speech for those who’s interest is piqued .

 

 

 

Published on Jan 8, 2014

” According to David Horowitz, Mr. Sayet is, “simply the best political comedian working in America today”, and a more serious thinker. In the latter capacity, Evan delivered the speech to the Heritage Foundation which Andrew Breitbart called “one of the five most important conservative speeches ever given,” a lecture that is now by far the single most viewed talk in their history. Evan has written and/or produced in just about every medium there is, including TV’s “Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher” (for which he apologizes), the multiple festival award-winning documentary “Dodo” and authored The Kindergarden of Eden: How the Modern Liberal Thinks (Evan will be selling and signing his new book). He was also the original writer for the long-running, cult classic game show, “Win Ben Stein’s Money.” Evan lives in Los Angeles.”

Broken Down To A Science

 

 

 

” We’ve all been there: Stuck in a hopelessly circular argument with a liberal who won’t get to the point, acknowledge basic facts even exist, or get past juvenile name-calling in debates. It can be really frustrating.

  One thing people can do to fight back is just to code all the non-responses to logical or rational arguments. Cryptically flipping back “Give me a break with that number 5 nonsense” or “Man, number 3, again?” can really humiliate people whose stupidity is broken down to a science.”

Rep. Jackson Lee: Sequester is Like Japanese ‘Tsunami’–‘It May Come When We’re Away in Work Recess’

 

 

 

 

”  Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) on Thursday compared the series of automatic federal budget cuts that took effect on March 1 to the Japanese tsunami of 2011 that killed more than 15,000 people and left millions more without power and water, while sparking a nuclear reactor meltdown.

She also “warned” that this “tsunami” of effects from the cuts, known as The Sequester, could come at any time – even at a time when Congress is not in session.”

” 7 Examples of People Who Are Not Victims

Jun 19, 2012
   No matter how unfairly you’re treated specifically because you’re a white male, a Christian, a conservative, or a Republican, very few people are going to accept the idea that you’re a victim. That may be unfair, but on the whole, it’s a good thing. America is already awash in people who falsely believe they’re victims and it’s not a pretty sight to see: the blaming, the whining, the mediocrity, the sea of jackasses who believe their horrific behavior is justified because they’re “victims.” It’s time they learned that they’re not victims in any real sense ”

   Can you guess who he lists among his non “victims” ?  As well informed as our readers are , we doubt John’s candidates will come as a surprise but you never go wrong spending a few minutes with him .

Disagree and you are racist . Where have I heard that before ? Oh yeah , just about everywhere for the past 4 years . I think  that the left have maxed out their credit on the race card . 

And by the way , if it is racist to vote AGAINST someone based on melanin content then isn’t it just as racist to vote FOR someone on that same basis ? Just asking …

   ” Barack Obama won the 2008 election in an electoral vote landslide, but racism darn near cost him the election – and if he loses this year, its because: racism, says a doctoral candidate at Harvard University.

Google search data proves it, says Seth Stephens-Davidowitz, who is a candidate for a Ph.D. in economics, and wrote a post for the New York Times’ “Campaign Stops” blog entitled “How Racist Are We? Ask Google.” Unfortunately, the study is a classic case of confusing correlation with causation.”

  ” Before getting into the details, let’s stipulate: There is no doubt that, somewhere in America, there are some people who voted against Obama because he is black. But not many – certainly not enough to cost Obama the election, which he won with a hair under 53 percent of the vote, which is 10 points more than Bill Clinton got in 1992.”
