Republican strategist Steve Schmidt called out both Trump and Roseanne Barr for intentionally and seriously using racism to divide the country and bring back the worst cultural toxins in American history.
Remember when some pundits were singing the praises of John Kelly? They praised his work at the Department of Homeland Security, of which ICE is a part.
The administration can whine all they want, but this president has poured gasoline on America's racial divisions.
Trump accidentally complimented a Washington Post column that discussed the pattern of racism behind his attacks on African-American sports figures.
This particular feud between Trump and LaVar Ball is clearly a stunt by both men to get attention and stroke their own egos. But with Trump, it's just the latest in his long history of attacking minorities.
Trump has cleverly enlisted the help of closeted bigots who gleefully embrace his Jim Crow idealism and ushered them into the light. Racism is now front and center in our country, and the maestro of this mayhem is the President of the United States of America. However, if our fate as a country is left in the hands of Mr. Trump, these states will no longer be united and divided we will all fall.
The anatomy of reporting on mass shootings depends on the perpetrator’s race. If the shooter was a white male, like Stephen Paddock, we are urged to wait for the facts. We don’t assume that mass shooting was a terrorist act when the shooter is white.
President Donald Trump said on Fox News's Fox & Friends that (note: mostly white) owners of National Football League teams are afraid of their (note: mostly black) players.
Claiming that he is friends with many NFL owners, Trump said, "They say, 'we are in a situation where we have to do something.' I think they're afraid of their players, you want to know the truth. And I think it's disgraceful."
When Donald Trump tweeted for a boycott of the NFL if team owners didn’t fire players for protesting racism, Trump may have broken a law that is punishable by a fine, jail time or both – and Trump may have further disqualified himself from serving in public office.
Let me say it as clearly as I can: The anger being expressed by many (white) people over NFL players kneeling during the national anthem is transparently phony.
In a stinging tweet, former Democratic Rep. Donna Edwards she hopes "every NFL player" will take the opportunity to stand up to "the white supremacist who squats in our White House."
The former Secretary of State did not definitively call Trump a white supremacist, but it's rather stunning that she refused to say he isn't.
Anyone who was paying attention knew that Donald Trump is a racist, misogynistic narcissist.
"The leader of the free world can’t continue to use language that legitimizes the actions of extremists groups that promote hate."
The meeting could have given Trump an opportunity to learn something about race relations in America, but he only made things worse.
Asked whether he would like to be the next U.S. President, Clooney joked, "That sounds like fun!" and Damon cut in: "Can I just say I would like anybody to be the next President of the United States, right away please."
Disasters have a way of erasing all markers of division and bringing people together revealing the best of our shared humanity.
"The pardon was a sign of pure contempt for every American who believes in justice, human dignity and the rule of law."
"The President has the authority to make this pardon, but doing so at this time undermines his claim for the respect of rule of law as Mr. Arpaio has shown no remorse for his actions."
Thousands of Americans are in Boston to stand up to Trump and his white supremacist supporters to say in one voice: This is not what America stands for.
