  1. One of these days, when there is a lull in the news, could someone ask Mr. Robinson about that piece of art behind him? I want to know who the artist is. I absolutely love this piece. 🙂

    1. During times like this groups started looking after themselves only. That’s why we can never get anything done. We could have ended WW2 before it actually got started if groups/neighbors did not do what they usually do and looked after themselves. Racism can be stoped or at least pushed under the house if EVERYONE speaks up if they see or hear racist behavior. Even if it’s a family member. Believe me it works. These politicians are afraid because the top voting groups are white Americans that usually vote republican. But now that group is dying out and being replaced with POC and young white progressives that will vote Democrat. That’s why they are changing voting laws. They will no longer be the majority and it scares them. It will get worse before it gets better.

    1. That’s a good end game goal to aim for but today in the United States of America that is not true

    2. @Demetria Karnavas “white men long ago established for themselves”
      You know, statements like that really show how narrow minded some people can be. Do you really think white people are the only one’s who do the kind of crap you criticize them for? Do you actually believe that before white people came to certain places that the native cultures were living together in perfect harmony without any wars or goals of conquering? Mankind has and always will fight, and no single color or demographic will ever be the sole suspect.

  2. much easier to feel fear and to be ‘against’ than to work toward a better overall society. The party of “I’ve got mine, screw you” knows how to message.

  3. Did anyone else think that Brian’s Quiznos comment was a subtle mention of Stephen Colbert?

  4. “Barack Obama is the first mainstream African American who is bright, articulate, and clean” -Joe Biden

  5. The front page news only shows the inmates but not the cage, while elections play with the public’s rage…

  6. “Racism isn’t dead, it’s on life support- being kept alive by politicians, race hustlers and people that get a sense of superiority by denouncing others as racist. ” – Thomas Sowell

    1. @SlyFan1993 Sorry, Thomas Sowell is flat out wrong here as he performs the Libertarian/Conservative fallacy, of both logic and English, of seeing the calling out of racists as a racist act.

      And the fact that Thomas Sowell can not see the major fatal flaws of Libertarianism, let alone the single greatest fatal flaw in his advocation of free-market capitalism….that is that there is no such thing as a free market, ever in the history of humanity, and never will be..just shows how blind conservative economists are to reality.

      American Racism is a feature, not a bug, built into American Capitalism, and has been since before this country was founded.

      And Thomas Sowell is willfully ignorant thinking otherwise.

    2. @James O’Gara So well said.. no pun intended. I can’t stand when people quote blacks who make such statements as if them being black makes them an infallible authority on such topics. Realize that black intellectualism was in its infancy so there was no healthy debate on topics that required “fleshing” out to truly accurately represent the movements of thoughts at the time.

  7. Fortunately a lot of young black people are waking up to the fact that white corporations like MSNBC don’t have their best interests in mind.
