Starbucks has been under fire lately, seemingly for “racial bias” due to a video showing two black men being arrested at a Philadelphia Starbucks and another story of a black man being denied entry to a restroom. I won’t go into a whole lot of detail about it, just know that, according to the woman who recorded the video, the staff at the shop called the police because the men hadn’t ordered anything while they waited for a friend to arrive and another incident in which a black man needed to use the restroom, having not made a purchase, and was denied entry despite the fact that another man, who was white, also had not made a purchase but was allowed entry.
The first situation is rather strange, as the two black men seemingly were not doing anything wrong, just sitting in the shop and waiting for their friend. I don’t know what warranted the manager to call the police or what warranted the police to arrest the two men. Thankfully, they were both released some hours later, but you really have to wonder what could have been going on there.
According to witnesses, the two men weren’t doing anything.
Due to these two circumstances, Starbucks has been under fire, with the hashtag “#BoycottStarbucks” popping up, prompting Starbucks CEO to do some damage control and conduct a “racial-bias education program”.
Now, I’m not going to defend Starbucks in the least. They are progressive loons and I’ve been doing my own “#BoycottStarbucks” movement for a very long time for different reasons. But it’s very interesting to see a company that has a brand of progressivism seem so racist.
Of course, they’re Leftists, so maybe I shouldn’t be so surprised, but still. Their whole brand is that of “progressives” who are only biased against police and military. They don’t tend to show bias against black people, so it’s very interesting to see this.
But I really should be getting to the bigger reason I’m writing this article. I, for one, don’t really care for Starbucks’ reputation or what people think about them. That’s not the reason I’m writing this article. The reason for this article is that a black man shared a video on Twitter in which he, in essence, took advantage of the scrutiny Starbucks has been getting and managed to convince a barista to give him a free coffee.
The video shows the man telling the barista: “I heard ya’ll was racist, so I came to get my free coffee.”
The barista, who is a white female, responds: “I saw that!”
Prompting the man to say: “I heard you guys don’t like black people, so I came to get my Starbucks reparations voucher.”
The barista then said: “Is that a real thing?” It’s not. “I mean, I’ll give it to you, I saw that on my Twitter last night and I was like, what the f**k!”
The barista then proceeds to make the man the coffee and the man sarcastically said: “That’s what I’m talking about! This is justice.”
Now, there’s nothing malicious about this video or what I’m saying about the man. The man, whom I’ll refer to as Bryan Sharpe, his name, was simply taking advantage of the ignorance of the company and the barista. As a matter of fact, he even commented with: "Black privilege gets me free coffee. I love racism. Only in America." Clearly, all he was doing was trolling the barista.
All he had to do was claim Starbucks is racist and the barista complied, giving him free coffee, which is most likely a violation of company policy, but since this is “reparations” in the barista’s mind, it’s fine.
The barista didn’t want to make it seem as though she was racist herself, and so she complied with Sharpe’s request to get some coffee free of charge. It’s more funny than it is anything else.
But this does highlight how tightly wound the Left is when it comes to racial issues. If they appear to have been racist, even if they weren’t, they will immediately submit and apologize. The ironic part in their efforts to restrict free speech is that they end up restricting their own free speech some times.
I recall a time when Ozzy Osbourne’s daughter, Kelly, was on The View and proceeded to say something that was viewed as racist. This was back during the 2016 election and they were talking about Donald Trump. Kelly Osbourne said: “If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet, Donald Trump?”
Of course, she immediately had to apologize and attempt to rephrase it. Frankly, as a Latino, I found that to be more funny than offensive. Personally, I don’t really get offended if someone attacks my race. If someone refers to me as a Mexican, I’ll correct them since that’s a nationality, not a race, but I won’t get offended.
I’m not petty and shallow enough to be offended by something so silly. Someone could call me a “beaner” and I still wouldn’t care. But the interesting thing is that, Leftists do care about that.
They don’t ever want to offend anyone, unless that person is a Christian, conservative, Trump supporter and Republican, but they don’t want to offend other people. So, they restrict even their own speech.
Now, I’m not saying we should all start saying the N-word, or call gay people the F-word. It’s in pretty bad taste to do something like that. But people shouldn’t be so concerned about “offending” people. Cotton shouldn’t offend black people. A cross shouldn’t offend Atheists. Darwin’s Origin of the Species certainly doesn’t offend me.
The American flag shouldn’t offend people. Kelly Osbourne’s comment shouldn’t offend Latinos. It should be refuted, since she’s making the assumption that Trump wants to deport all Latinos, which is simply not true, but it shouldn’t offend people.
Likewise, the Starbucks barista shouldn’t risk her own job (though this being Starbucks, and given the reasons she gave free coffee to the guy, I don’t think there’s much risk anyway) just to “appease” someone who is very clearly taking advantage of the company’s situation.
Now, I’m not saying there shouldn’t be anything that offends us. Of course, there are legitimate reasons to be offended. I was certainly offended when Joy Behar insulted the Vice President’s Christian beliefs. I was also offended that it took her about a month to apologize.
I was offended at the “art” piece of Jesus Christ in a jar of urine. I’m offended every time NFL players protest the National Anthem. I’m offended every time someone burns the American flag or flies it upside down.
I’m offended every time someone is discriminated against for their Christian or Jewish faith, their conservative views or their support of Trump.
Why? Because these are legitimate reasons to be offended. Cotton is not something to be offended over. No black person today has had to pick cotton under the threat of a white master. No white person today has owned a slave.
The Starbucks barista shouldn’t feel as though she’d commit some sort of hate crime by denying the guy some free coffee. And notice how every time I refer to Sharpe, unless it’s important to take notice, I never refer to him as “the black man”? Just “the man”? That’s because, unless it’s necessary to point it out, I don’t care about the guy’s race. Same goes for the barista. I could’ve referred to her as “the white barista” or “the female barista”, but neither is necessary to point out every single time.
THAT is what real progress looks like. What real EQUALITY looks like. Not looking at someone and referring to them as their race unless it’s absolutely necessary and certainly not taking advantage of my own race to make someone else feel guilty. I don’t care about the guy’s or the barista’s race or gender. But that is all liberals and Leftists can focus on.
If someone didn’t get a job in a company and they tell their liberal friend about it, they might think there’s race discrimination going on.
Remember the Canadian superintendent in the “white privilege” poster? That she claimed that her skin color had given her unfair advantages?
How is that in any way progressive? How is that in any way equalizing? How is a Starbucks barista giving free coffee to a black man “reparations” for at least the incidents surrounding the company?
How are reparations a way to move forward? All they are is an excuse not to try to be successful and asking for things to be given to you, forcing a member of another race to feel guilty for transgressions that had nothing to do with them and had everything to do with the Democrat Party.
The way to move forward isn’t to essentially put white people in the place of black people of the past. That would literally be regression. The way to move forward isn’t also shaming and attacking someone for being white. That’s also regression.
The way to move forward is to study history so that we may never again repeat it.
Alas, I digress. Returning to Sharpe, I’m not trying to call him out for anything. If anything, I’m calling out the fear and ignorance coming from the barista. She seemed like a nice enough kid trying to do the right thing, but she shouldn’t be so worried about appearing racist if she were to say “no”. If there’s a racial problem with Starbucks or its employees, that’s up to the company and the individual employees, not her necessarily.

During a CNN panel talking about the shooting at the high school in Florida, former Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders’ spokeswoman Symone Sanders made the attempt to make this matter not just about gun laws, but also race.
Sanders said: “If the Parkland shooter had been black or brown we wouldn’t be talking about the types of legislation we could or could not make happen. If he was yelling Allahu Akbar, Congress and the President would’ve been tweeting about it and they would’ve swooped in and did whatever they felt needed…”
Other panelists, such as Bill Kristol tried to make the point that no gun law change occurred after the San Bernardino shootings, with Sanders replying that we have a Muslim ban now.
I’ll get to that part momentarily.
First, I wanna focus on the elephant in the room. She said if the Parkland shooter had been black or brown we wouldn’t be talking about types of legislation. Either she’s insanely stupid or hasn’t been paying much attention at all about the shooter.
Ms. Sanders, I’ll put things in words that even someone like you might be able to understand.
The name of the Parkland shooter was Nikolas Cruz. Typically, that name is indicative of Hispanic descendance. Hispanics tend to count as “brown” people. If you look up his picture, you can see that he’s slightly brown. Admittedly, not too brown, but still of a darker shade than a typical white person.
My question to you then is: what in the absolute heck are you talking about? He may not be black, but he surely is brown. He’s Hispanic. And yet, people talking about this subject couldn’t care less about that. Well, everyone except you, seemingly.
That is why I believe she has either not been paying a whole lot of attention or she’s just that stupid.
Now, she did mention that he had trained with a white supremacist group. The thing about that is that it’s not true. Nikolas Cruz didn’t train with a white supremacist group. This particular fake news comes due to a report by the AP that a spokesman from Republic of Florida, a white supremacist group, “confirmed” that Cruz trained with them.
Later on, however, the story was debunked, saying that pictures taken of “Cruz” didn’t confirm his identity (the pictures showed someone concealing their face or a blurry picture) and the spokesman himself eventually said that there are multiple people in their group by the same name or at least variations of it.
So Sanders is either misinformed and spreading fake news or she’s an idiot and spreading fake news.
Now, let’s move on to the Muslim ban part of her short rant.
Do you know why we have a Muslim ban? Why we specifically disallow these particular people from certain Muslim nations from coming here? Because Islam is the only “religion” in the world that has constant problems with terrorism.
Buddhists don’t have a problem with Buddhist terrorists. Why? Because there are no Buddhist terrorists killing in the name of Buddha.
Hindus don’t have a problem with terrorists in their own religion. Why? Because there are no Hindu terrorists killing in the name of Krishna or Ganesh or Vishnu.
Jews don’t have a problem with terrorists in their own religion. Why? Because there are no Jewish terrorists that kill in the name of Yahweh.
Christians don’t have a problem with terrorists in our own religion. Why? Because there are no Christians that kill in the name of Jesus.
But Muslims have a problem with terrorists in their own religion. Why? BECAUSE ALLAH IS THE ONLY DEITY THAT ORDERS HIS FOLLOWERS TO KILL PEOPLE!
On top of that, the Muslim ban doesn’t even affect all of the Muslim nations in the Middle East, only a select few.
Now, I don’t think it’s necessary for me to go into too much more detail on the actual shooting and on why no form of gun control would work. I simply wanted to share this ridiculous statement made by an insane Leftist who clearly has no idea what it is she’s talking about.
To repeat myself, Nikolas Cruz IS brown, yet, Trump and his administration aren’t doing what Sanders would expect them to do about someone who’s brown in this case. In her mind, she’s probably thinking that Cruz would be sent to Guantanamo Bay or get deported if he were black or brown. Well, he’s brown and he’s still in custody. And likely will be sent to prison for life.
The comment she made highlights her raging ignorance on the subject matter and it also highlights the insanity of the Left’s minds. Whenever a Hispanic person is involved in anything, the Left expects Trump to immediately deport that person even if he or she is here legally. That’s how little they think of Trump and that’s how they view things such as illegal immigration.
I won’t get too much into that topic since it has nothing to do with this case, but it does point to the Left’s mentality. They simply can’t help but to think about people’s race. They are just that shallow.

I recall having ended my last article with a little reminder of who Democrats are: racists. And that extends to being racist against white people. And in case any of you didn’t know: yes, it’s possible to be racist against white people.
While Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. dreamed of a world where his children and his African-American brethren may be judged not on the color of their skin but rather on the content of their character, Chelsea Handler dreams a different dream. A world where people are judged very much so on the color of their skin,
Here’s what the lunatic tweeted: “Happy Martin Luther King day to a true hero. This day means more today than it ever has. We all must honor the spirit of his fairness and equality and tireless search for justice. It is up to white people to honor Dr King, and to think about what it must be like to not be white.”
Chelsea is in the lead for the “single stupidest tweet of 2018” award.
I can just picture Dr. King rolling over in his grave at this racist tweet. Chelsea, it’s not up to white people to honor Dr. King. It’s up to EVERYONE WHO WISHES FOR EQUALITY OF PEOPLE to honor him. His message was against judging people over the color of their skin. A point that Chelsea horrendously misses.
To address the last part of the tweet: I’m Hispanic and I feel pretty white. If being white means having a nice house, a decent job and living comfortably, then I feel pretty white. I don’t feel like a “typical” Hispanic. To Chelsea, a Hispanic typically is cleaning some rich folks’ toilets, mowing the lawn or doing any sort of medial housework for inhumanely low wages.
To Chelsea, a “typical” black person is someone who lives in the ghetto (a concept originated by the Nazis to “ghettoize” the Jews), is part of a gang, is having children at 16 if she chooses to keep the children and lives off of welfare.
To Chelsea, a “typical” Asian person is someone who is good at math, eats rice, is good in school and is an engineer working in Silicon Valley.
If “not being white” means being stereotyped as doing or being anything described above, that’s a horrible statement to make. The way I see things, a Hispanic can “live like a white person” if living like a white person means living in comfort. A black person can live that way. An Asian person can live that way.
You see, the point is that YOUR SKIN COLOR DOESN’T MATTER WHATSOEVER! You’d think I wouldn’t have to say that, but Democrats are so fixated on the color of people’s skin that they don’t care that they’re being the opposite of progressive.
If anyone is thinking backwards, it’s the Democrat Party and its advocates like this moron.
Thankfully, other Twitter users were quick to point out the hypocrisy and outright racism of her statement.
“OUT: I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. IN: White people are bad,” said one user.
“’I have a dream one day that people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.’ When you talk about whiteness, clearly you have failed to see this dream through, Chelsea,” said another user.
And my personal favorite: “Every time I read your posts, I think what it must be like to not be sane.”
I doubt Chelsea has the mental capability of recognizing the racism of her words, so I doubt she will think that these people are right. For that matter, I doubt many Democrats will think these people are right.
So many things that you see today are all about race. Harvard worries about their “diversity” in campus rather than getting the best students they can get. Democrats attack Trump for not “diversifying” his cabinet rather than think he’s getting the best possible candidate at each position that he can find.
The Left calls white people racist on a mere whim even if nothing remotely close to racism is ever said. They believe white people are horrible, should recompense black people with “reparations” and will go as far as to say that white people should die. And I’ll remind you, it’s white Democrats who are typically the ones who hate white people the most, as you can see here.
Chelsea HATES white people, though she’s white herself. But she excuses her whiteness by being “woke”, an honest-to-God idiotic term to support the Black Lives Matter movement (which coincidentally also goes against Dr. King’s wishes). Being “woke” is their excuse for being racist against white people while being white themselves. It’s their excuse for “living like a white person”.
Just as Bernie Sanders is excused for living like a capitalist by preaching socialism. Just like any Democrat is excused for being rich by pushing for higher taxes on the rich. Just like Antifa is excused for using fascist tactics of violence by claiming to be against fascism.
There is no bigger hypocritical entity in the universe than the Democrat Party. No greater racist entity. They were racist against people of color since Andrew Jackson founded the Party and continue to be racist against people to this day. Being racist against white people is just as bad as being racist against black people.
But the Democrat Party is so blinded by their hatred and racism that they fail to see that. They see defending anyone who’s white as being a “white supremacist” and “Nazi”. They don’t understand the meaning of racism.
If you’re against someone simply because of their skin color, that’s racism. If you’re against someone because of anything else, that’s not racism.
The Left would often brand people racist if they were against Obama. If those people were against him because Obama was black, then yes, they were racist. But if they were against Obama because of his policies and ideologies, then that’s not racist. The very fact that they would attack people with that was inherently racist.
All that argument made was that people should support Obama, if for nothing else, because he was black. Anyone who voted for him just because he was black is just as racist as anyone who voted against him just because he was black. Likewise, anyone who voted for Hillary just because she’s a woman is just as sexist as someone who voted against her just because she’s a woman.
I’ve made that point before, but I felt it was necessary to reiterate it since the Left has seemingly gotten dumber since the last time I said that.
So for Chelsea to say something like that exposes her true nature: that of a racist. Being racist isn’t just about discriminating against black people. Anyone who thinks that is, himself, a racist. If someone thinks black people can’t be racist, or Hispanics can’t be racist or any other minority can’t be racist simply because they’re a minority, they themselves are racist.
And that perfectly describes the Left. They make faux claims of not being racist while at the same time showing the world that that’s precisely what they are.
This is why I said racism flows through their veins. They can’t escape it historically. And certainly not ideologically. For all their talks about being “progressive” they are among the world’s most backwards-thinking group of people.

After last week’s reported comments about immigration and bringing people in from “s**thole” countries, the Left and the media have all gone into a frenzy to call Trump a racist. But there are plenty of people who don’t believe what he said was racist or that he is racist in general. And that includes Dr. Alveda King, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s niece.
In an interview with Breitbart, Dr. Alveda King said: “I agree that President Trump is not a racist. He has done so much… Just now, [Trump signed] the bill that was sponsored by Congressman John Lewis making the Martin Luther King Jr. historic site in Atlanta a national park – the first park to be named after an African-American man.”
You wouldn’t know about that from watching the fake news media. Had this happened during Obama’s tenure as President, this would be one of the biggest stories out there. “President Obama Signs Historic Bill Into Law, Making MLK Historic Site Into National Park – Marking This To Be The First Park To Be Named After African-American,” is what the headlines would say.
But what do the headlines read today? From CNN: “Why focusing on ‘s**thole* (and no, they didn’t censor it) totally misses the point – Trump’s sentiment toward nations populated by people of color is much more important than his word choice.”
From The Washington Post: “Trump says ‘I’m not a racist,’ accuses Democrats of impeding DACA deal.”
From the New York Times: “Donald Trump’s Racism: The Definitive List.”
All the media outlets are focusing on Trump’s reported remarks. None have mentioned this bill. None have mentioned the falling unemployment rate for Blacks and how it's the lowest since the 1970s, when such a statistic was first recorded. And when it comes to the tax cuts that help everyone, the Left MOCKS the “chump change” businesses like Walmart give their employees.
“In terms of the bonus that corporate America received versus the crumbs that they are giving workers to kind of put the schmooze on is so pathetic. It’s so pathetic," Nancy Pelosi said about businesses giving their employees thousand-dollar bonuses.
Well, I don’t expect someone with a $30 million net worth to value a couple of extra thousand dollars. But to these employees, that’s a MASSIVE bonus. Some are even raising the minimum wage they give their employees to $15 an hour.
THAT is how you raise the minimum wage. Not through forcing it on businesses but through helping businesses grow and the businesses WILLINGLY raising the wages of their employees.
What’s so wrong with corporate America getting a big bonus if it helps a lot of people? What kind of jealous, evil person do you have to be to despise that? Short answer: a Democrat.
Returning to Dr. King, she continues with: “And there’s all other kind of legislation and things that President Trump is passing, including getting a lot of black folks out of jail – he’s working on doing that, believe it or not, and putting them back to work. And putting America back to work – African-Americans especially because our job rate or our hiring rate was so low and it’s going up along with everybody else’s rate. So President Trump is not a racist. He cares about America period. And he said, ‘No matter what color our skin is, we all bleed red.’ So he sees black people, all people as people. He sees Americans as the people he is supposed to serve and he’s doing that. And he is not a racist. I just really want to say that.”
While Obama saw the American people as his subjects, given his “Emperor of America” remarks, Trump sees the American people as his boss. He knows we put him there and he knows what we want to see him do.
Breitbart then went on to write: “King, who has been increasingly active in conservative politics and reportedly voted for Trump in his presidential campaign, backed him up by saying, ‘[Trump] cares about this country. He cares about the plight of everybody who’s been under-served, mis-served, mistreated, and he’s equalizing that. And he means that and I believe him, I really do.’”
As part of being increasingly active in conservative politics, she had been battling Facebook over a pro-life documentary about Roe v. Wade, which Facebook had been “taking it down, not letting the paid ads go forth and all that,” according to Dr. King.
Thankfully, Breitbart informs us that: “Facebook later yielded to pressure and allowed the team to crowdfund.”
I’m certainly happy to hear such good news.
But returning to the topic at hand, it’s truly significant for Dr. Alveda King to back up President Trump when it comes to the claims that he’s racist. Claims which had been made since the very day he announced he would run for President.
Upon his candidacy announcement, Trump talked about Mexicans crossing the border bringing crime, drugs, rapists and all kinds of bad people into the country. Despite being right, the media branded him a racist immediately, though at the time, they weren’t really taking Trump as a serious candidate either. But the point is that they’ve been calling Trump a racist since the day he ANNOUNCED his candidacy.
It didn’t work back then. It didn’t work when he became a serious threat to Hillary (even if they still didn’t think he’d come close to winning). It didn’t work on Election Day. And it hasn’t worked any day they’ve tried.
I think the Left might be running out of plays to use out of their playbook if they’re circling back to racism. Racism which is being heavily rebutted by the very actions he’s partaken and the people behind him, including a Hispanic millennial (yours truly) and Dr. Alveda King.
If you want to find evidence of racism within anyone, search almost anyone within the Democrat Party. Obama was a terrible president for everyone, but even more so for people of his own race.
Dick Durbin is making ridiculous and, frankly, racist claims that the term “chain migration” is racist towards black people because “they came to the country in chains.” Yes, claiming something is racist for a specific race when it’s not is racism in itself.
Responding to Teddy Roosevelt’s dinner with Booker T. Washington in 1901, Democrat Senator James Vardaman said: “I’m just as opposed to Booker T. Washington with all his Anglo-Saxon reinforcements as I am to the coconut-headed, chocolate-colored typical little coon Andy Dotson who blacks my shoes every morning.” Democrat Senator Benjamin Tillman added: “Now that Roosevelt has eaten with that n****r in Washington, we shall have to kill a thousand n****rs to get them back to their place.”
I’m not done.
Democrat Senator Theodore Bilbo during one of FDR’s reelection campaigns, said: “White people will be justified in going to any extreme to keep the n****r from voting. You do it the night before the election. I don’t have to tell you any more than that. Red-blooded men know what I mean.”
Here’s a quote from Democrat Robert Byrd (from when he was a soldier fighting in WWII) about fighting alongside black people: “I am loyal to my country and know but reverence to her flag BUT I shall never submit to fight beneath that banner with a negro by my side. Rather I should die a thousand times, and see this old glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimens from the wilds.”
It’s not just elected Democrats that have proven to be racists. Early twentieth century Democrat advocates also wrote racist books. Charles Carroll wrote a book titled: “The Negro a Beast” (1900). Robert Shufeldt: “The Negro: A Menace to American Civilization” (1907) as well as: “America’s Greatest Problem: The Negro” (1915). Charles Harvey McCord: “The American Negro as a Dependent, Defective and Delinquent” (1914).
I could go on, but I think I’ve made my point and I don’t want to make this article too long.
To reiterate my point: if you want to find evidence of racism within anyone, search almost anyone within the Democrat Party.
It’s truly a joke for any Democrat to call anyone a racist. Racism, bigotry and hatred courses through their veins.

Is there anything anyone ever does that is inoffensive to someone nowadays? You literally can’t go outside without being called a racist, apparently. And one student from Pitzer College, Malcolm McCann, makes known his beliefs that outdoor clubs in schools are fundamentally racist.
According to Campus Reform: “In a recent op-ed for the school paper, a white Pitzer student frets that the colleges’ outdoor programs, though open to all students and well-funded, are ‘predominantly white spaces’ that deny people of color ‘access to the outdoors.’”
That statement reaches levels of stupidity close to the whole “a banana peel in a tree made people cry” incident a few months back.
McCann writes in his op-ed: “[The Pitzer Outdoor Adventure and ‘On the Loose’ outdoor clubs] claim to be accessible: while trips are open to any student wanting to go, not everyone feels the same ease in entering the outdoors. This discomfort is unfortunately caused by existing racial boundaries.”
I feel as though it’s necessary to remind you that McCann is white himself, so I have no idea how he would know how minorities feel when going outdoors. I’ve been offered to go hiking with some friends before. I turned down those offers not because I felt that my friends would automatically become racists the minute we got there but because I’m not really into hiking.
Likewise, I seriously doubt minorities’ concerns about joining an outdoor club center on how “white” the club is.
Regardless, McCann’s ridiculous sense of social justice is in full display for all to see. He continues his op-ed with: “Historically, white people in imperialist conquests have appropriated land as their own. North America rightfully belongs to indigenous communities, yet it has been taken away from them by force. Consequently, a false sense of ownership of nature permeates white America.”
I just love the way ignorant liberals often phrase things. He writes that the whole country rightfully belongs to indigenous communities, yet, I highly doubt he’d give up his house to some random Indian tribe. He believes the land belongs to the natives, yet he lives and thrives in land that is supposedly not his. Would that not make him a hypocrite?
What land would be his then? Some place in Europe that maybe his family owned before they moved to the colonies? Should he go there since the land his family now owns technically belongs to the natives?
But he’s not done. Not by a longshot. He continues with: “Similarly, the image of a modern outdoor enthusiast is white, as is the historical image of a naturalist. The great icons of nature – John Muir, Walt Whitman, Henry David Thoreau – are all white men. At present, most famous rock climbers are also disproportionately white.”
To which I must reply with: “so what?” What does it matter that those people he named are all white? I can make you a list of the 10 greatest basketball players of all time and I can easily say that only 1 of them is white. Does that mean the NBA is racist because of the disproportionate black to white ratio? OF COURSE NOT!
So why is it racist that there’s a disproportionate white to black ratio in outdoor activities? Often times, these things are about PERSONAL PREFERENCE!
Take me, for example. I’m from Latin America, where soccer (or futbol, as it’s called there) is the most popular sport there (and given the multiple countries with socialist governments, the best chance people have to escape poverty). I like it, but not nearly as passionately as fellow Latin Americans. My favorite sport (in case you couldn’t tell from the numerous references I’ve made over time) is basketball.
A sport that is most famous in 2 places: America and China. Off the top of my head, I can name 2 All-Star Latin American players (one of them retired and the other very close to retirement), so you can see that basketball isn’t nearly as popular for Latin Americans as soccer is. Yet, I love it with a passion.
I don’t care much for outdoor activities not because of the white people there, but because I’m just not into it. I’d rather be shooting some hoops than walking up a mountain carrying a 50 lbs. backpack or kicking a soccer ball.
And if I WERE into outdoor activities, I couldn’t care less about what skin color the other people around me are.
Still, I doubt one minority writer would convince an airhead such as McCann that most people aren’t so fixed about the color of people’s skin. Honestly, for someone to write an op-ed about how outdoor clubs are racist, they really have to be SEARCHING for a problem where none really lies.
And perhaps the funniest point he seriously makes (though that’s up for debate) is that aside from racial barriers, there are also financial barriers… which are also racial barriers, to this guy.
“Many National Parks are hundreds of miles from large cities. Consequently, only those with access to a vehicle and money for gas will be able to enjoy them. Similarly, only students with economic privilege have the resources to attend summer programs that teach wilderness skills.”
Does this guy not realize that he’s talking about COLLEGE CLUBS?! Chances are that the minorities attending such schools have the money to do so. Financial troubles are not something they have to worry about all that much. Granted, a student here and there might say “I can’t afford to go hiking”, which is fair enough. But that’s not a problem every single minority student runs into.
If I were attending college and had the chance to join an outdoor club, I wouldn’t join not because I don’t think I can afford to go to these National Parks but because I’m just not interested in those things.
And even if I WERE interested, my financial ability to go is not something I’d be worried about. Even if I couldn’t afford it, these kind of clubs are usually well-funded. According to Campus Reform: “At Pitzer College, the ‘Pitzer Outdoor Adventure’ club of which McCann is a member began this school year with over $7,500 of funding.”
So even the very club he’s A MEMBER OF is more than capable of funding any student who wishes to participate in the club’s activities. So McCann has exactly zero valid points to make.
Worst of all, not only does he come across as an absolute ignoramus, he’s also coming across as racist. I imagine the reason he wrote the op-ed is because he took one look at his fellow members’ skin tone and felt disgusted at the lack of diversity. He couldn’t get past their skin tone and thus concluded that outdoor clubs are racist and predominantly white.
While the white to black ratio may sway to the white side, that’s by no means a problem. It becomes a problem if the club’s main goal is to attract more minorities rather than focusing on the nature trips. It becomes a problem if the club becomes more focused on the skin color of its members. It becomes a problem if the leader of the school’s club denies entry to a white person wanting to join so that they can have open spots for minorities.
McCann’s op-ed solves no problems and only seeks to incite them. He looked for a problem in his club and decided to create one.
It’s similar to what some people think Congress has. They don’t think there are enough minorities in Congress. They don’t think they have enough women in Congress. Not enough Hispanics or Asians. My big concern isn’t about what a Congressman looks like. My big concern is about what a Congressman BELIEVES! How he works and what he wants done.
I’d happily vote for an African-American woman if she’s a Christian conservative. Same as I would a while man. Or a Hispanic man. Or Hispanic woman. Or Asian man. Or Asian woman.
The point is that I couldn’t care less about the way people look. But it’s clear that the Left does. I can assure you no conservative looks at Congress and thinks “it’s too white and masculine.”
On contraire, I challenge you to find much masculinity, especially from Republicans.
Jokes aside, these are things only the Left worries about. That’s how shallow they are. That’s how shallow they always have been. They’ve always looked at black people as slaves. Either literally or financially. It’s no different today.
They claim they’re not racist, yet they use people’s skin color as an argument. Remember how people called you racist if you didn’t vote for Obama? If the fact Obama was black was the only reason some people voted for him, that makes those people racist.
They portrayed Obama (among other things) as “the cool black guy”… both times. And both times, he ran against a supposedly “racist” candidate just because they were white (I won’t defend either Establishment scumbag, but I remember the way people felt throughout the elections, mostly through 2012).
Race is a major issue for which the Left seemingly "wants" to rectify but never really will. The concept of “white guilt” is entirely created by the Left and entirely ridiculous. It serves no purpose other than to further drive a wedge between people using race.
No white person has to feel guilty about things they had nothing to do with (but Democrats should feel guilty about supporting and fighting for slavery). Likewise, no black person should victimize themselves for things that never happened to them. Cotton shouldn’t be something that offends them. They never had to pick any for their “white masters”.
Still, the Left can’t help themselves. They simply MUST divide people in any way they can. And so, stupid op-ed pieces like these surface. There was no racial problem in Pitzer’s outdoor club, but this guy wants there to be.

The term “white supremacy” seems to be the Left’s favorite term to throw around (along with Nazi). Anything involving a white person and a minority is considered white supremacy. And everything any conservative ever says is white supremacy, even if the topic has nothing to do with race.
And the Left simply CAN’T get past the topic of race. To them, a black person is nothing more than a minority to exploit. A Hispanic is nothing more than someone whose mind can easily be molded. The Left doesn’t care about these people, only that they eventually vote for Democrats.
But what exactly is the reason for me to be talking about this specific subject? Well, aside from the obvious answer that it’s a hot topic of discussion, it’s also the fact that it’s clear that the Left is insanely hysterical about race-baiting and calling white people “white supremacists” if they support Donald Trump or simply don’t share a liberal view.
For example, Hurricane Irma recently swept through the west coast of Florida. As a hurricane, it caused deaths and damage, not to mention people either decided to evacuate early, or were ordered to evacuate by Gov. Rick Scott.
And during times of evacuation, you occasionally see people looting stores or homes in order to 'salvage' things for themselves. It’s simply stealing, and there’s no getting around that. And the Miami police are very much aware of that.
On Sunday, the Miami Police Department twitter account tweeted: “Thinking about looting? Ask these guys how that turned out. #stayindoors.”, before sharing a picture of incarcerated criminals, likely being charged with looting.
Of course, there’s nothing wrong with that. Criminals should be punished for committing crimes… unless they’re black, according to author Sarah Jaffe.
In response to the Miami PD’s tweet, she wrote: “good morning, the carceral state exists to protect private property and is inseparable from white supremacy.”
It boggles my mind how people like that don’t realize that they themselves are being racist if they think black people that commit crimes should be allowed to walk just because they are black. Or that these people are being incarcerated just because they are black and not because they committed actual crimes.
It’s the same argument as saying that “if you don’t vote for Obama, you’re racist.” So I should vote for Obama because he’s black then? Isn’t that just as racist? I didn’t like Obama because he’s a socialist jerk. Same reason I don’t like Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and any other liberal. Race isn’t an issue to me, but it’s a massive issue to them.
Now, obviously, Sarah’s tweet received a fair share of negative comments. Among these are comments like: “They have prisons, crime, and private property in Nigeria too. And Egypt. And India. Nothing to do with white supremacy. Poverty/inequality.” Or “So you’d be ok with someone breaking into your house and stealing all your stuff to avoid a ‘carceral state’?” And my personal favorite: “You’re saying non-whites can’t help but steal, so they shouldn’t be punished? Seriously? Keep your racist opinions to yourself. #ShameOnYou.”
I’m thankful that someone specifically called her out for being racist. You see, in her mind, since she’s a liberal, she can’t possibly be racist. So anything she says can’t possibly be considered racist if it’s directed towards white people.
Another example of liberal hysteria (and quite possibly, a bigger example) is the massive twitter rant an ESPN anchor went on against the President.
Jemele Hill, a co-host on SportsCenter at 6pm, wrote roughly a dozen tweets against the President and his supporters. Now, she gets repetitive, so I won’t quote all of them, but here are a few:
She begins with: “Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists”. Ok, that’s b.s., but this is the exact same thing we hear on the news nearly every single day. Got anything else?
“The height of white privilege is being able to ignore his white supremacy, because it’s of no threat to you. Well, it’s a threat to me.” (Jemele is an African-American woman).
I’m sorry, but which of the two parties fought and killed to keep YOUR race as slaves, Jemele? Which recent former president said of the then president that he should be serving HIM coffee? To answer both: it was the Democrats and Bill Clinton, who said that of Barack Obama.
And let’s not forget one more crucial point: Jemele Hill is not the representative of every minority in the country. It might come as a shock to liberals reading these articles, but these articles are being written by HISPANIC PEOPLE! The author section might say “Freddie Drake”, but that’s not because I felt as though I should change my name to sound less “Hispanic”. I use that pen-name because I like the name “Drake”.
And the overwhelming amount of support for the President, love of this country and love of the All-Mighty Lord in this website doesn’t come from white people. It comes from Hispanics that love this country and would hate to see it turned into the very nation we so passionately wanted to get out of.
And who is trying to turn this country into the very nation I would hate to go back to? The Democrats. The Left. That’s one of the biggest reasons I voted for Trump in the first place. Because of his very slogan: “Make America Great Again.” I know what Obama was doing in his 8 years. I know what the Left wants to do to this country. And the ignorant people that call Trump a “fascist” have no idea what fascism truly is.
No, I can’t say that I’ve personally experienced socialism and fascism, since I’m very young. But I KNOW how terrible those things are. I don’t need to know how a car is built in order to know when one doesn’t work. Likewise, I don’t need to live under socialism to know it’s absolutely terrible and has failed everywhere it’s been tried.
Look at the Soviet Union, a nation that wasn’t stable enough to see its centennial anniversary of death and destruction. Look at Cuba, the nation most famous for selling their brand new ’57 Ford Taunus. Look at Venezuela, where the 1% are the people who can find brand-name bread at the supermarket. Look at North Korea, where they have massive paved streets where no cars other than government vehicles can drive.
So I don’t think Trump is a white supremacist. I think the white supremacists are the socialists whose very HISTORY is that of racism and slavery.
But now, to answer the title question. I think that the election of Donald Trump was so unprecedented that it’s almost literally blown a fuse in liberals’ minds. Seriously, they’ve gone insane. Or maybe they were always this insane, but they’ve managed to control it, knowing one of them was president.
Either way, it’s truly concerning to see so many people harbor and spout so much hatred for a man they’ve truly only seen on the Left-wing media. They hate the man, not knowing who he is. Having never held a conversation with him or having never heard him speak himself without liberal bias thrown in to make things look bad.
The Left truly is insane. But beyond that, the Left truly is evil. Hysteria creates hate. And hate creates evil. Evil deeds and evil thoughts. The Left hates this president and gleefully and openly speaks of tearing him down by force. Their evil hearts drive them to the point of near (or actual) insanity.
And the sad reality is that they are more than happy where they are: at the hands of the devil. They not only reject Christ, but also hate and mock Him. But I guess some of these people just weren’t meant to be saved.
“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to His purpose. For those whom He foreknew He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, in order that He might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those whom He predestined He also called, and those whom He called He also justified, and those whom He justified He also glorified.”

With the recent events in Charlottesville, we've seen the latest protest by the KKK and neo-Nazis in the United States. And the Left is quick to lie to the world and claim that they are against the KKK and that these racists are all Trump supporters and Right-wing Republicans.
However, did you know that it was the DEMOCRATS who founded the Ku Klux Klan? Did you know that their objective back then was no different from their objective now: to KILL freedom, and anyone who defends it JUST to expand THEIR POWER? You know what the KKK is about. Why would they conspire to kill ANYONE, as history has shown us, unless their ultimate motive was YOUR subjugation? 'Do as I say, or else...'
In its website the Democrat National Convention (DNC) says ‘for decades, Democrats have stood with the African American community in the struggle for equality’…This, my dear friend, is unfortunately not true. The fact of the matter is that Democrats for more than 150 YEARS have KILLED and ENSLAVED African Americans!
Let's take a look at some of the facts:
Here are some prominent KKK Democrats:
Democrat US Senator Robert Byrd voted against both African American Supreme Court Nominees (one Democrat, one Republican) and filibustered the Civil Rights Act of 1964
Democrat Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black built his winning Senate campaign around multiple appearances at KKK meetings in Alabama
Democrat Senator Theodore Bilbo revealed his membership to the Klan in a radio interview. He said ‘No man can leave the Klan. He takes an oath not to do that. Once a Ku Klux, always a Ku Klux’... so the next time you hear someone say that Byrd USED to be in the KKK and regretted having been a part of it, use that quote.
Democrat Governor Clifford Walker of Georgia revealed membership to the Klan in 1924
Democrats have been lying to the people of the United States for over 150 years. They’ve used minorities to advance their own political ambitions.
Democrats have MASSACRED African Americans, becoming the first home grown TERRORIST GROUP, the KKK.
And the recent tearing down of Confederate statues is nothing more than the Left's attempt at trying to bury their history. Because for as long as those statues are up, they will serve as a cruel reminder to them that they have a horrid history of hatred and racism coursing through their Democrat veins. And they can't let the truth be known by ANYONE.

On August 15th, 2017, ESPN aired a live fantasy football auction draft in which a select group of “owners” bid on players to add on to their fantasy teams… And apparently, that’s racist. The draft consisted of having multiple players’ faces on sticks and each person in the auction would bid a certain amount of money to add those players to their fantasy teams.
Now, I won’t go into the details of how fantasy football works, since it's not all that relevant for the purpose of this article. The important thing is that this is auction draft is something that’s been happening for a while now, not just on that particular Tuesday.
Among the players auctioned in that draft were Odell Beckham Jr. (large part of the reason why this is even a big deal right now), who tweeted that he was left “speechless” from seeing a cutout picture of his face on a stick. Another player that was in that auction draft was 5x Superbowl champion Tom Brady, who was sold for $20… oh, and is White.
But that’s not what matters here. What matters is that the Left sees something as tame as an auction draft and deems it offensive because they don’t really know much about it. Even ESPN has said that “Without that context, we understand the optics could be portrayed as offensive, and we apologize.” The Left went haywire on ESPN for the auction draft, not knowing that it’s pretty normal for a fantasy football draft, and bullied ESPN into apologizing.
Now, I won’t defend ESPN, mostly because they are almost as bad as any other MSM source out there with their left-wing politics. But this is not something that anyone should have to apologize for. According to the UK Daily Mail, “one shocked viewer said: ‘ESPN sold Odell on an auction block to a crowd of White people. In 2017.’” There’s a couple of things I want to address here.
First, I love how this twitter user purposefully avoids giving the proper context to make this seem far worse than it really is. When you see someone tweeting that an organization has sold a person on an auction block, your mind would immediately think of a slave auction. This person purposefully made it seem that way, because if he/she were to give the proper context, it wouldn’t seem like such a big deal. In today’s world, we’re taught to react emotionally and avoid critical thinking. That you should avoid questioning sources and just take information given to you as though it were sacred. No one is taught to critically think anymore.
When you read that kind of tweet, many won’t think “Hmm? What are you talking about here? What’s the context of this scenario?” No, many will think “WHAT?! HOW DARE THEY DO THAT TO ANOTHER HUMAN BEING?! HOW?!” People will react emotionally first and will avoid critically thinking to better understand the context of the situation. It actually reminds me of something I saw on social media during the 2016 election…
This was before the nominees had been named on either party and Hillary Clinton was going up against Bernie Sanders. Someone on Facebook had shared what seemed to be a poster promoting Crazy Bernie, and among one of the many promises the poster made that would happen with a President Sanders, it said that he would “end racism”. I’ll admit, I started cracking up at that. “How is Bernie Sanders going to ‘end racism’ as the poster promises?”, I thought. I might’ve been the only person that saw that poster that actually thought about it. When you see a poster that promises this person will end racism, most people will think “awesome!” They are not taught to think “well, how is he going to do that? Because there are many people that are, indeed, racist.” *ahem* the Democrats *ahem*.
So when I see that tweet about the auction draft, I thought “what’s the context here?”, but I doubt many other people thought that as well.
The next thing I want to cover is the fact that that twitter user mentioned the crowd was “White”. You’d think it wouldn’t matter what color the purchasing group is if they’re “buying human beings”. What does it matter that they were White? Would it have been better if the crowd had been mostly black or Hispanic? Would that have made this not “racist” according to them? If you see human beings being “sold” to people, what does it matter what the color of the customer’s skin is? But this is the point of identity politics: White people are the worst and are always to blame no matter what.
If a white person runs over a crowd of people, killing one and injuring a dozen others, he’s a hateful domestic terrorist and represents all white people. If a Muslim runs over a crowd of people with a truck, killing multiple people and injuring many more, it’s not a representation of the rest of their “peaceful” religion.
And the last thing I want to cover is the fact that the twitter user finished that tweet with: “… In 2017.” Ahh, yes. The fact that it’s 2017 definitely means something. To me, it means that it’s no longer 2016 and it’s almost 2018. To the Left, it’s a valid argument to tell people they’re offensive and intolerant and that they should be more progressive. That gays should be allowed to marry, men be allowed to use women’s public restrooms, illegals are not criminals, and that Muslims just want to hug you. All a bunch of b.s. The fact that it’s 2017 doesn’t matter in the least. Yes, we’ve made progress since the last couple of centuries with the abolition of slavery and desegregation (to the protest of the Democrat Party), but the fact that it’s 2017 doesn’t really mean anything.
In 2018, some people will still be racist. In 2025, the Left will still be crazy (if not crazier, by then). Point is, times may change, but people scarcely do. When someone says “it’s 2017”, all that really does to me is let me know that the other person is aware of the concept of time. It means next to nothing else to me.
But my point is that people have been taught to only react emotionally and leave critical thinking out of every situation. ESPN didn’t have to apologize for airing a live auction draft of NFL players and people shouldn’t have overreacted to such a non-issue. That auction wasn’t racist, it’s a part of the fantasy football draft process for the upcoming NFL season.
As another Twitter user with some actual sense said on the matter: “Not everything is racist.”
“I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them.”

White guilt is something that the Left loves to use. They tell white people that their ancestors, if they owned slaves, were horrible people that deserve to burn in hell. They love to remind people of the mistakes of the past. Much in the same way the devil does.
Students in Western Kentucky University voted to allow for free tuition for African Americans as reparations for slavery. Andre Ambam, one of the people to fight for this resolution in WKU, told the WKU Herald that racial inequality is the basis for economic inequality. Basically, it’s white people’s fault that they’re in the mess they’re in. As of 2016, 24% of the African American population lives below the poverty line. Apparently, even 50 years after the end of segregation, it’s white people’s fault that black people are poor.
To the left, if someone is poor, it’s not their fault, it’s someone else’s.
But let’s go back to the subject at hand, not of poverty percentage, but of racial inequality and white guilt.
While the Left claims to be ‘progressive’, they sure love to remind people of the past and tell them it’s all their fault. The Left looks at slavery and segregation not as atrocities that they themselves supported, but as tools to deceive people into having a negative emotional reaction: guilt. After all, it was the Democrat party that founded the KKK. It was Bill Clinton that thought Obama should be serving him coffee. And it was a Democrat that said, upon appointing African American judge Thurgood Marshall to the Supreme Court, that “Son, when I appoint a *N-word* to the court, I want everyone to know he’s a *N-word*.” And that same Democrat often referred to the Civil Rights Act of 1957 as the “*N-word* bill”. That Democrat was noted racist Lyndon B. Johnson.
If the Left wants to blame anyone for the situation black people are in today, it should be them. It was John Wilkes Booth, a southern Democrat, who killed Abraham Lincoln for freeing the slaves. It was the Democrat South that seceded from the Union because Lincoln wanted to free the slaves. It was the Democrat party that imposed Segregation in the South the minute they regained power in that part of the country, after mass killing black people through their KKK arm. It was Martin Luther King Jr., a Republican, who wanted equality and integration for black people. It was Abraham Lincoln, the literal founder of the GOP, who wanted to free slaves. And it was the Left back then that wanted to stop him and the Left now that wishes he had been stopped.
But, like Satan, they use the mistakes of the past to guilt people into doing certain things. They say white people need to make reparations for black people, even if they had absolutely nothing to do with slavery. Leftists like Dr. Adam Kotsko think that white people must commit “mass suicide” for what white people of the past did, even if their ancestors didn’t own slaves.
Satan loves to remind you of the mistakes you made in the past as reasons you can’t move on to a better future. If you did poorly in school, you have no chance of being successful in the real world. If you hurt someone in the past and feel sorry for it, you shouldn’t even think that whatever you did could ever be forgiven by anyone. If your ancestors owned slaves, your heritage is racist, and must do what the Left says in order to be forgiven.
None of that is the case.
God knows there’s evil in Man’s heart. It was evil that made white slave traders do what they did. But He also knows that Man is capable of good. When Satan says that you can’t do something because of your past, God says you CAN do it, because of Him. When Satan says that what you did is unforgivable, God says that if you simply ask for forgiveness, He will forgive and forget what you did. And when the Left says that white people must make reparations to black people for what their ancestors did in the past, God disagrees with them wholeheartedly, as evidenced by the fact that the “White Guilt” doesn’t generate their desired result: votes.
So, if you’re white, the next time someone tries to guilt you into thinking slavery and segregation were your fault, point towards the Heavens and say: “It’s your word against His.”
“For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.”
