State Rep. Jason Spencer (R-Woodbine) of Georgia was featured on Sacha Baron Cohen’s “Who Is America?” Sunday night shouting racial slurs, flashing his naked buttocks, and making fun of Chinese people.
Baron Cohen, “disguised” as Israeli terrorism expert Col. Erran Morad, convinced Spencer to participate in an anti-terrorism training video meant for elected officials to learn how to protect themselves from terrorists.
“All you damn sand-niggers over in the Middle East, we are tired of you coming to America and we are tired of you trying to threaten us,” Spencer says in a post-credits video titled, “A Message to Terrorists from Rep. Jason Spencer.”
In addition to brandishing a knife, Spencer continues his rampage: “We will cut off your . . . (Read more)
Paramount Pictures Chief Executive Jim Gianopulos announced Thursday in a memo to staff that he fired the studio’s TV president Amy Powell, the Los Angeles Times reported.
Several people raised concerns about Powell’s lengthy rant, which prompted an internal investigation. At least four people heard the executive make offensive remarks about Black people, including stereotyping African-American women as angry and jabbering on about Black children being raised in single parent homes.
Powell was discussing a new program that will feature a predominantly African-American cast. Tracy Oliver, who wrote the Universal Pictures hit Girls Trip, is overseeing production of the upcoming program called The First Wives Club. (Read more)
Donald Trump is testing the institution of the presidency unlike any of his predecessors.
He disdains the rule of law and tramples norms of presidential behavior. He is ill-informed, self-destructive and brazen in his abusive attacks on the justice system and the press. Indeed, Donald Trump is chewing this country up and spitting it out in little pieces. The fear of not being re-elected has caused congressional Republicans to stand idly by while Trump tells lie after lie, alienates allies and enables racism to flourish unabated.
Donald Trump is a Bernard Manoff and Theodore Bilbo rolled into one. A con artist and a racist. He continues to successfully con his supports, many of whom are low information voters, into believing him in an unconditional and cultish manner. Many of Trump’s tweets and comments shine a spotlight on his racism and his appointment of people like Jeff Sessions, Betsy DeVos, John Kelly and Steven Miller further substantiate it. (Read more)

Republican Mississippi state Rep. Gene Alday asserted on Monday that he had been taken out of context by a local paper that published his remarks saying that “all the blacks” in his district get “welfare crazy checks” because they do not work.
In a Sunday article, The Clarion-Ledger‘s Jerry Mitchell reported that Alday had recently linked his opposition to increased education funding to social welfare programs.
“I come from a town where all the blacks are getting food stamps and what I call ‘welfare crazy checks,’” he declared. “They don’t work.” (Source: Read more)
Racist habits confirm the mentality that we are dealing with while some folks will say that we have come a long way. Really? Well I have a problem with what is happening in the now as it is being demonstrated directly and/or indirectly today. Curmilus Dancy II October 30, 2014
I get so sick of the ads that Thom Tillis are endorsing that is talking about nothing but US Senate Kay Hagan supporting President Barack Obama. Damn the President is a a Democrat and so is the US Senator so why would she not support the Democratic Platform?
Damn so what does Tillis want to do? It appears nothing but just to vote against the President he does not have much time left in office.
Vote Kay Hagan!
Oh but ain’t nothing racist about that though!
The Political Agitator response: Now I have experienced this most of my 52 years. I was born in 62.
It’s not just southern rednecks either. I graduated from Duke in the 60’s. Most of my southern classmates and all of my southern in-laws are well educated, well-to-do, white racists. They often deny or try to disguise it, but it can’t be hidden. John Stummer
