New blackface video roils Sacramento high school where racist science project was featured

Published

on

A Sacramento high school that was recently embroiled in a controversy over a racist Science Fair project is reeling again after several students filmed themselves using the N-word while in blackface.

According to CBS13 Sacramento, students believed to be attending McClatchy High School posted a video of themselves on social media wearing cosmetic mud masks and using the highly-charged racial slur.

In the first clip a teenage boy in blackface approachesa a bird cage, saying, “I don’t think this bird likes n***ers.”

A second clip shows a teenage girl and the same boy flirting with the teen girl, giggling, “Hi, n***er.”

While school officials are reasonably sure the videos were not shot on campus, they are concerned about the video coming on the heels of a student’s controversial science project in February that questioned the IQ’s of African-American students.

The school was criticised for approving the project proposal that stated: “If the average IQs of blacks, Southeast Asians, and Hispanics are lower than the average IQs of non-Hispanic whites and Northeast Asians, then the racial disproportionality in the Humanities and International Studies Program (HISP) is justified.”

According to Betty Williams, who heads up the Greater Sacramento NAACP, there seems to be a constant undercurrent of racism at the school.

“Now to hear the N-word, with two more students, I have to think it’s the culture of the school that makes white students fell it’s okay” she explained.

A spokesperson for the Sacramento City Unified School District said officials are looking into the video.

Florida Republicans concoct a new scheme to make it harder for students to vote

Published

on

Florida Republicans do not want to make voting easy for college students — a demographic that leans heavily Democratic.

Former GOP Secretary of State Ken Detzner, an appointee of Gov. Rick Scott, took that to the extreme in 2014, with an order banning county election officials from setting up any early voting sites on college campuses. Last year, following a lawsuit by the League of Women Voters, federal District Judge Mark Walker struck down that order as an unconstitutional burden on students' voting rights. As a result, some 60,000 people were able to vote early on 11 college campuses in Florida in 2018.

Trump flips out over ‘RIGGED’ hearings as Democrats grill Hope Hicks

Published

on

President Donald Trump ranted on Twitter while his former communications director testified before the House Judiciary Committee.

Hope Hicks complied with a congressional subpoena and testified behind closed doors to the Democrat-led panel, and the president raged online as word leaked out that a White House lawyer was objecting to many of the questions about her government service.

"The Dems are very unhappy with the Mueller Report, so after almost 3 years, they want a Redo, or Do Over. This is extreme Presidential Harassment," Trump tweeted. "They gave Crooked Hillary’s people complete Immunity, yet now they bring back Hope Hicks."

Soledad O’Brien shames the press for calling Trump’s lies about Central Park 5 a ‘controversial stance’

Published

on

Former CNN host Soledad O'Brien has once again called out media outlets for whitewashing President Donald Trump's blatant lies.

This time, O'Brien took issue with a USA Today headline that mischaracterized Trump's lies about five black men who were falsely accused of raping a woman in New York's Central Park in the 1980s, only to have their convictions vacated in 2002 after DNA evidence exonerated them and another man confessed that he was the man who committed the brutal Central Park rape more than a decade earlier.

Instead of calling out Trump for lying about the case, the paper simply called Trump's continued assertions of their guilt a "controversial stance."
