One week after its launch, the corporate coffee behemoth decided to cancel the first phase of...

Remember Austin’s “White People Only” sticker controversy? Last week, shop owners came in to find that their businesses had been branded with stickers bearing the Austin city seal and proclaiming that the premises were “exclusively for white people.”

Lean forward for a second.

I’m not going to come right out and say that MSNBC intentionally hires insufferable race-baiters to appear on its news spots, but one of their recent guests defied all sense of decency to such a degree with his comments on Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal’s (R-aaaaacist Republican,...

Teachers in the San Francisco United School District are concerned about race.

In an area where schools are almost 90% non-white, you’d expect that an emphasis on cultural diversity would happen by default, and that teachers wouldn’t need the help of an institutionalized curriculum to get the job done. But in...

Yeah, they went there.

“The killings of Michael Brown and Treyvon Martin clearly shows that we don’t live in a post-racial society as many expected when you were elected,” Ramos says.

Obama chuckled, “Well, I didn’t expect that. You probably didn’t either.”

“But many people expected you to do more on race relations, dealing...

“Hardly a day goes by that someone of prominence—a politician, a talk show host, an entertainer—doesn’t call a conservative, or conservatives generally, a racist.”
