Here we go again, folks. This is just another example of how the NAACP and civil rights leaders really don’t care about the people they claim to represent. In fact, this shows just how hypocritical they are and willing to sell out the black community in exchange for a little bit of power, influence, and money.

So, in case you don’t know, the annual NAACP convention is happening in Las Vegas right now. Many of these black leaders have expressed concern about the dwindling African American turnout that seems to be a foregone conclusion in the upcoming November midterm elections. They are afraid this will lead to the expansion of voter identification laws, saying how these types of laws make it harder for their community to actually vote in elections.

The funny thing is that despite all of this concern, black voters turned out in record numbers during the 2012 elections. This helped Barack Obama to maintain control of the White House. Additionally, it is thought this was the first time in American history when black voters actually turned out in a higher rate than white voters. Of course, they also point to the fact that this was a presidential race. Going back to the midterm elections of 2010, we saw blacks voting at a much lower rate and this led to (or so these leaders will argue) the Republicans winning control of the House of Representatives along with many state and local offices.

Current polling data shows that black voters are much less enthusiastic than white voters. This also leads many to think more white and Republican voters are going to turn out. These sheer numbers could mean the Republicans will have a better than average chance at re-taking control of the Senate, while also maintaining (and possibly even extending) their majority in the House.

Obviously, this is an eventuality the NAACP and other black leaders want to avoid. After all, they certainly don’t want their own power and influence to languish under Republican leadership.

Many black leaders have also been arguing that the Republican control of the House and also many positions at the state and local levels, particularly in the south, have already led to a “wave of voter suppression laws” and voter identification rules. Jotaka Eaddy, the NAACP voting rights director, even told a panel that 22 states have passed laws to increase identification requirements before voters are allowed to actually vote.

Now, these very same black leaders are trying to scare their community members into thinking that Republicans are going to stamp out their right to vote. Of course, the best way to fight voter fraud is by increasing the identification requirements, since many times those who vote illegally have very weak or thin documentation. Certainly no one with a valid piece of identification is going to be denied their right to vote, yet this is what the brainiacs in the NAACP would have their members believe.

What has also impressed me about this kind of thing is the sheer lack of faith the NAACP and black leaders seem to express in their own community. They are basically saying they think black people cannot be expected to comply with simple voter identification requirements. How insulting!

What do YOU think? Is the NAACP doing a disservice to their own members? Is their opposition to voter ID laws really just a front for something else? Have many black leaders abdicated their responsibility and are no longer really effective in helping their constituents? Should voter ID laws continue to be implemented?

Widow of Cop-Killer Upset that he Didn’t Kill More Cops

Capture

July 15, 2014 By Greg Campbell

ZCampbell The widow of a man who ambushed a rookie police officer for, apparently, no reason is now upset that the focus of sympathy is on the slain police officer and not her husband and is also upset that her husband did not murder more police officers.

Ladies and gentlemen, buckle your seatbelts; this is a special kind of crazy…

Angelique Campbell told News 12 in New Jersey, “He should’ve taken more [officers] with him.”

Her husband, Lawrence, was wanted for a previous murder, waited outside a Walgreen’s after taking a security guard’s gun and ambushed and murdered 23 year-old rookie officer Melvin Santiago.

Authorities believe that the ambush may have been for notoriety as Lawrence Campbell allegedly told a bystander to “Watch the TV news later, I’m going to be famous.” The 27 year-old gunman was shot and killed when police responded.

Angelique, however, was not concerned with the needless slaying of a police officer by her criminal husband but was, instead, disturbed that people have focused their sympathies on the murdered officer’s family.

“Sorry for the officer’s family. That’s, you know, whatever,” Campbell told News 12. “But, at the end of the day, [Lawrence] got a family too. All they care about is the officer.”

Campbell made the comments at a makeshift memorial for her dead husband, where friends and families propped up photos and liquor bottle and messages such as “Thugs in Peace.”

“He was a good man. He looked out for everybody on the block,” stated Campbell’s friend, Barbara Jones.

Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop was outraged by the memorial and the words of the callous widow, saying, “It doesn’t get much lower than this. [The memorial] won’t be there for the duration of the day.”
While there has always existed a criminal element in society, this level of callous disregard for human life is purely nauseating and a symptom of a society led astray. A man who served his community was viciously murdered in cold blood for, apparently, nothing more than a desire to have his name in the paper and the response by his widow speaks to a “me first” ideology that is present in 2 year-olds and remains too prevalent in society.

BOMBSHELL! Black Pastor: Thad Cochran Bought ‘Hundreds or Even Thousands’ of ‘Black Votes’

BOMBSHELL! Black Pastor: Thad Cochran Bought ‘Hundreds or Even Thousands’ of ‘Black Votes’

July 1, 2014 By Matthew Burke

Republican establishment-backed Senator Thad Cochran has been accused of dirty tricks and unethical tactics in the Mississippi GOP Senate primary runoff on June 24, but the accusations have just leapfrogged from the unethical to the highly illegal, making the validity of the election results questionable.

“They [Cochran campaign] told me to offer blacks $15 each and to vote for Thad,” said Reverend Stevie Fielder, a black pastor from the First Union Missionary Baptist Church, told Charles C. Johnson, in a shocking interview on Monday.

Fielder told Johnson (listen to interview below) that he brought “hundreds or even thousand” of blacks to the polls after being convinced by the Cochran campaign that Tea Party challenger, Mississippi State Senator Chris McDaniel, was a “racist.” Fielder says he was also offered $16,000 to by the Cochran campaign to pull off the vote buying scheme, but the campaign broke their promise and refused to pay him after he delivered the votes.

“They said they needed black votes,” Fielder said about the Cochran campaign’s scheme to buy Democrat votes in order to rig the election in his favor.

According to the report from Johnson on his Got News site, the vote buying scheme was implemented by Saleem Baird of the Cochran campaign, and Kirk Sims, a legislative aide to U.S. Senator Roger Wicker, Cochran’s junior colleague from Mississippi:
Text messages released to Got News and a recorded interview with Reverend Fielder confirmed that Saleem Baird, a staffer with the Cochran campaign and current legislative aide to U.S. Senator Roger Wicker, and Cochran campaign manager, Kirk Sims, were involved in a $15-per-vote cash bribery scheme to target members of the black community.

“They said they needed black votes,” said the Reverend Fielder on the phone. He says Baird told him to “give the fifteen dollars in each envelope to people as they go in and vote. You know, not right outside of the polling place but he would actually recruit people with the $15 dollars and they would go in and vote.” Fielder said he received thousands of dollars in envelopes from Baird and distributed them accordingly. Fielder also says he went to the campaign office on another occasion to pick up $300 in cash and was among a room full of people who were doing the same thing he was.
Reverend Fielder showed Johnson text messages from his cell phone, claiming they were from Baird, coordinating the money delivery in exchange for votes in favor of 76-year-old Thad Cochran, a 42-year Washington veteran.

Fielder told Johnson that Saleem Baird personally delivered the cash “from the campaign” to bribe the black voters.

According to the Cochran campaign, Cochran received 35,000 Democrat votes in the Republican runoff, but only 6,700 more votes than McDaniel overall, indicating that Democrats selected the GOP Senate nominee for the State of Mississippi.

It is illegal under several provisions of Mississippi law and federal law for campaign officials to bribe voters with cash. Such actions are punishable up to five years in jail. (MS Code 97-13-1; MS Code 97-13-3 (2013) (Federal Code 18 U.S.C. 597, U.S.C. 1973i(c)) Voter fraud schemes are not unusual for Mississippi. In 1999 Mississippi’s attorney general reported massive voter fraud allegations throughout the Magnolia state. In 2011, a Mississippi NAACP leader was sent to prison for voter fraud, according to the Daily Caller.

“They sold me on the fact that he [Chris McDaniel} was a racist,” said Reverend Fielder, explaining that his motivation for cooperating in the scheme wasn’t the money, but was to keep a “racist” from being elected. Fielder admitted he had no information to indicate that McDaniel was a racist, other than the assurances he received from the Cochran campaign.

“I thought what I did was wrong,” Fielder said apologetically.

Will Harry Reid Tell This 100% Navajo Indian High School Their ‘Redskins’ Mascot is Racist?

Will Harry Reid Tell This 100% Navajo Indian High School Their ‘Redskins’ Mascot is Racist?

Red Mesa High School, located on the Navajo Reservation in Red Mesa, Arizona, is a public school in which nearly 100% of it’s students are Navajo Indian.

Their mascot and logo?

The “Redskins.”

Yes, that’s right, the eeeevil and raaaacist term, the “Redskins.” It’s exactly the same name the Washington football team, the Redskins, have called themselves for seven decades.

The high school’s website even has a a tab titled “Redskins News” and features this logo:

Red-Mesa-Redskins

Oh my, how “racist” is this Harry! How could this be Harry?

Why would a 100% Native American school name use as their own mascot a “racist” term?

Maybe Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid should be asked this important question of the day.

Harry Greed and other white elitist communists latest distraction/obsession is with forcing the Washington Redskins to change their name because they’ve determined, after decades of being silent on the word, that the term “Redskins,” a term that was chosen to HONOR Native Americans, must now be banned.

As the Middle East implodes, Obama’s restocking enemy terrorists, more Americans are dependent upon government handouts and out of the work force than ever before, Americans are being targeted by the Obama IRS for their political beliefs, and a plethora of other important issues of the day, changing the name of an NFL team is the focus of anti–free speech Democrats.

But will Harry force Red Mesa High School to change their name too? But then after the anti-free speech Democrat forces them to change their mascot, will he then force them to take the word “Red” out of “Red Mesa High School?”

Because we all know that word is racist too, right Harry? Tell us which words we can and cannot say, will ya Harry?

Michelle Obama Wants Students to Monitor Family Members for Racial Insensitivity

Michelle Obama Wants Students to Monitor Family Members for Racial Insensitivity

by Jason DeWitt | Top Right News

First lady Michelle Obama wants students to police their families for any “racially insensitive comments” they might make, and to challenge those comments whenever they’re made, asking them to “drag” their presumably racist relatives into the “fight against racism.”

Huh?

You heard right. The lady whose husband has taken every opportunity to fan the flames of racism, from the Cambridge police, to Arizona’s immigration law, to the Trayvon Martin case, and on and on, wants everyone else to stop being so racist.

The first lady spoke on Friday to graduating high school students in Topeka, Kansas, and in remarks released over the weekend, Obama said students need to police family and friends because federal laws can only go so far in stopping racism.

“[O]ur laws may no longer separate us based on our skin color, but nothing in the Constitution says we have to eat together in the lunchroom, or live together in the same neighborhoods,” she said. “There’s no court case against believing in stereotypes or thinking that certain kinds of hateful jokes or comments are funny.”

To address these limitations in the law, Obama asked students to take steps to “drag my generation and your grandparents’ generation along with you” in the fight against racism.

“Maybe that starts simply in your own family, when grandpa tells that off-colored joke at Thanksgiving, or you’ve got an aunt [that] talks about ‘those people,’” she said. “Well, you can politely inform them that they’re talking about your friends.

While Obama praised the Topeka student body for being “racially diverse”, she said segregation is happening again in some parts of the country, as some people are moving away and leaving city schools. She said that is leading to segregation that is as bad as it was decades ago.

“So today, by some measures, our schools are as segregated as they were back when Dr. King gave his final speech,” she said.

This, says the woman whose own daughters attend one of the most elite private schools in the nation, which is overwhelmingly white — while her husband killed school vouchers for poor Black families in D.C. to be able to get their kids out of their disastrous schools.

Is there no end to the Orwellian hypocrisy of the Obama cabal?

Watch these Teachers Explain White Privilege to Young Students

It looks like these teachers haven’t read this Princeton student’s account of his own “privilege.” That, or they didn’t want to become confused with the facts.

Teachers Diana Reeves and Rosemary Colt held a session titled “Examining White Privilege and Building Foundations for Social Justice Thinking in the Elementary Classroom” at the 2014 White Privilege Conference in Madison, Wisconsin. It seems they wanted attendees to find “opportunities to begin to insert social justice, anti-racist information for even little kids to understand.”

One of the lessons they offered for attendees to consider focused on the United States Constitution. A worksheet asked if it works well for everyone, to which one student wrote “No because some people have different beliefs.” It’s not clear what that is supposed to mean other than perhaps that multiculturalism somehow makes the Constitution irrelevant.

Another question asked what it means to be privileged.

“If you are privileged you are white,” another child responded.

And the teachers played a video they made with their students.

“Do you remember that word that I used when we were talking about our previous role play, where it’s sometimes hard, if you are this, to think about people who may not be so. It started with a P –pri…” one said.

A student answered “pretending” and the teacher replied that pretending was what they were doing, not what she was talking about.

“Sometimes you have a lot, and you’re not even aware of how much you have. And it’s sometimes called privilege”, she said.

In the video, eight-year-old students spoke about what they learned.

“White privilege is when people that are white get an advantage to the people who are people of color,” one student explained. “So if there was like a job, and a person of color was applying, and a white person was applying, and the owner was a white person, they might pick the white person just because of the person’s color, even if the black person was better.”

Any NBA fan might question this since 78 percent of players are black, even though the league has just one black team owner.

“White privilege is something that white people have, meaning they have an advantage in a lot of things and they can get a job more easily,” another student said.

Meanwhile, one student realized what a “racist” he was at the end of the conference.

“I can talk about how the racism inside me, I feel like I’m going to go home and tell my parents that I’m a racist and I’m not proud of that but I’m proud that I can say that,” he said.

What do you think? How would you react if your child was exposed to something like this?

Sports-Michael Jordan Admits To Being A Racist As A Kid

Sports-Michael Jordan Admits To Being A Racist As A Kid

The face of professional basketball, Michael Jordan, was a self-proclaimed racist as a child. In a new biography about number 23, ”Michael Jordan: The Life,” he says he was very upset by racism during his childhood, and in turn, that caused him to hate white people.

Author Ronald Lazenby documented a time that a white classmate called Jordan the n-word. Jordan said, “So I threw a soda at her … I was really rebelling. I considered myself a racist at the time. Basically, I was against all white people.”

In a statement to ESPN, the book’s publishing company that Jordan had not been contacted for the process of writing the book. They said, “Michael Jordan made those statements in a 1992 interview with Playboy magazine, referring to a specific event from his childhood. This is reported in Lazenby’s book, which is a definitive biography of MJ’s life and covers Mr. Jordan’s childhood thoroughly, but Mr. Jordan did not make those statements to Lazenby for this book. As stated very clearly in previous interviews, Mr. Jordan did not participate in ‘Michael Jordan: The Life” by Roland Lazenby.’”

As the Donald Sterling racism story broke, Jordan, now the owner of the Charlotte Bobcats, said in a statement, “As an owner, I’m obviously disgusted that a fellow team owner could hold such sickening and offensive views. There is no room in the NBA , or anywhere else, for the kind of racism and hatred that Mr. Sterling allegedly expressed. I am appalled that this type of ignorance still exists within our country and at the highest levels of our sport. In a league where the majority of players are African-American, we cannot and must not tolerate discrimination at any level.”
