CNN Anchor Brings The Receipts For Black Trump Support Who Denies The Orange Overlord Is Racist

Source: Pacific Press / Getty Why these news networks continue to interview these people we never know, but as long they continue to waste time in doing so, they need to continue to hold them accountable on-air. Wednesday (Sept.30) on CNN, T.W. Shannon, the co-chair for Black Voices for Trump (yes, this really exists), made a complete fool out of himself on national television. Anchor Brianna Keilar tried her best to get an answer out of the Trump bootlicking coon when she asked him why  Donald Trump “did not condemn white supremacists” and basically weaponized the Proud Boys during his disastrous “debate” performance with Joe Biden on Monday. Like every Trump stumper, Shannon responded with a lie claiming that agent orange said he would condemn white supremacy “three times,” Kielar r...

Trump Supporting Convoy Rolls Through North Carolina Yelling “White Power!”

Source: Anadolu Agency / Getty At this point we have to conclude that if you’re still supporting Donald Trump’s re-election campaign it’s probably because you support his racism, xenophobia and overall agenda of living in an Amerikkka under the rule of white supremacy. Regardless of how many times Trump and his supporters deny being racists, his words and their actions continue to echo that of 1940’s Klansmen looking to scare the bejesus out of people of color and anyone supporting equality. Over the weekend while Trump supporting protestors tried to intimidate early voters in Fairfax, Virginia, a convoy of Trump supporting hooligans rolled through the streets of Elon in North Carolina to support the Racist-In-Chief’s re-election campaign and yelled out the basis of their support: white po...

MAGA Youth 101: Trump Announces ‘Patriotic Education’ Commission To Combat Education On Racial Equality

Source: Drew Angerer / Getty Donald Trump is proving that his administration is heavy on making America more racist, with the announcement of his new ‘Patriotic Education’ Commission. On Thursday (Sept 17), Trump announced that he would be creating a commission to promote “patriotic education” and adding that a grant program was developed to introduce a “pro-American curriculum.” The move is largely political — and a reaction to a growing push by some academics for schools to teach an American history that better acknowledges slavery and systemic racism. In the speech, Trump denounced racial equality education, labeling it as a “twisted web of lies” being taught in U.S. classrooms about systemic racism in America, before calling it “a form of child abuse,” reprising the themes from a speec...

That “Strange Case” in HBO’s Lovecraft Country We Can’t Stop Thinking About

Warning: This editorial discusses scenes depicting rape and sexual assault. HBO’s Lovecraft Country has been a wild ride so far. In just four episodes, we’ve seen haunted houses, vampiric monsters, and mysterious cults, along with the real world horrors of Jim Crow laws and white supremacy. The series’ fifth episode — this past Sunday’s “Strange Case” — manages to top all of that with one of the most disturbing scenes in recent memory. In a twist on Robert Louis Stevenson’s novella The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Ruby (Wunmi Mosaku), a Black woman takes a potion and wakes up in a white body. At first, she’s shocked and horrified, but begins to see the value in this new “currency” of whiteness. The potion eventually wears off, causing Ruby to violently shed her new skin in bloo...

Cops Called On Ex-NFL Star Brandon Marshall For Trying To Move Into His Own New House

Source: Al Pereira / Getty There is a deep-seated, racist sickness in America that rears its ugly head far too often. In the latest example, ex-NFL star Brandon Marshall had the cops called on him by security that was refusing to let him move into his own new home. Think about how outrageous that sounds, but it’s absolutely true. We know because Marshall shared footage of the incident on his Instagram. “This is the problem,” an irate Marshall can be heard, reading security the riot act. “I come here, you feel uncomfortable, my first day moving into my new house, because my name’s not on the list you call the cops.” Marshall also noted that he had two kids in the car, and that other Black people lived in the area in…wait for it…Florida. Regardless, calling the cops was wholly unnecessary. T...

Don’t Blame CTE: Brian Urlacher Slams NBA Players, Doesn’t Care About Black People

Source: Cindy Ord / Getty NFL legend Brian Urlacher doesn’t care about Black people. That’s the only way to explain a headass message the former Chicago Bears linebacker posted on Instagram where he expressed disdain for NBA players having the nerve to go on strike in order to protest racial injustice. It was nice of Brian Urlacher to let every black teammate he ever played with know their lives aren’t worth shit. Also, FYI, the knife was found after he’d been shot. The cops who shot him didn’t know about, or see, it. Also, cops are supposed to arrest, not kill, people. pic.twitter.com/W3SoQuGkzq — Bill McCormick (@BillMcSciFi) August 27, 2020 On Instagram, Urlacher invoked spectacular yet tragic on-field performance from Brett Favre, as evidence that Black basketball pla...

White Tosser Gets Proper Flattened On The Tube By Black Bruvs For Being A Daft Racist

Source: Screenshot / Screenshot A white man most likely needs to go see his physician after catching the fade on London’s underground railway system. The bigoted bloke went on a rather racist rant before a group of Black bruvs decided they had enough and knocked the chatty fellow smooth out. Metro published a story featuring a video of the exchange where the white fellow is seen shouting nonsensical nonsense saying that “this is my home” apparently in a bid to depict to the group of Black youth that they’re invading his precious land. One of the men in the group responded to the man’s zany rant, and a woman who filmed the exchange is heard on the video saying to the man, in short, that he looks and sounds like a dumb ass. Others also can be heard saying that the man has a death wish among ...
