During last night’s Super Bowl, former South Carolina GOP executive director Todd Kincannon sent out a flurry of racially-charged tweets, stirring controversy among social media users.
Kincannon’s tweets largely involved “jokes” about Trayvon Martin, dick-sucking, Hurricane Katrina, and black people.
“JERUSALEM — Rocked by a scandal involving birth-control treatments for Ethiopian Jews, Israel’s health ministry issued new guidelines on the use of the injections known commercially as Depo-Provera.
In a recent letter to the country’s four HMOs reported Sunday, Ron Gamzu, director general of the health ministry, instructed gynecologists against renewing prescriptions in cases where the patient does not fully understand the treatment’s implications.
The ministry’s new policy comes in response to a controversy exposed last month by local investigative journalist Gal Gabbay, who reported that Jewish Ethiopian women awaiting emigration to Israel in transit camps in Ethiopia were coaxed into the treatment with little medical explanation and led to understand this was a condition for moving to Israel…”
The head of Maine’s Republican Party is claiming unknown groups of black people showed up in the state’s towns and cast ballots on Election Day.
“In some parts of rural Maine, there were dozens, dozens of black people who came in and voted on Election Day,” Charlie Webster told Portland, Maine’s NBC affiliate on Wednesday. “Everybody has a right to vote, but nobody in town knows anyone who’s black. How did that happen? I don’t know. We’re going to find out.”
Exclusive audio obtained by The Nation of a stop-and-frisk carried out by the New York Police Department freshly reveals the discriminatory and unprofessional way in which this controversial policy is being implemented on the city’s streets.
“Pat Rogers, a Republican National Committee (RNC) leader, is facing calls for his dismissal after telling the staff of Gov. Susana Martinez, R-N.M., that because she agreed to meet with American Indians, she disrespected the memory of Col. George Armstrong Custer.”

“Wait a minute, don’t touch my groceries. I can’t have someone negroidal touch my food. It’s against my creed.”
According to the lawsuit, Thomas went on to explain he meant a black person when he used the term “negroidal.”
“My question is, why after I told them how I felt and that it was against my creed did this negroid try to impress himself upon me and try to handle my groceries again.” Thomas said.
Thomas said his religious beliefs are based on Vedism, which he said encompasses Hinduism.
“Vedism translates into knowledge. I am not this way because I am ignorant. Ignorance is the enemy,” he said.
I’m laughing way too fucking hard. I just can not wrap my head around someone saying this in all seriousness. I’m pretty sure that’s a mental defense against the crushing depression that would ensue, though.
Oh mah jebus…I am utterly depressed to say that this area is where I was born and raised.
The new novel Saving The Pearls: Defending Eden sounds like something that someone made up as a prank. Victoria Foyt’s self-published novel takes place in a world where, due to global warming, most white people are dead. The world is ruled by black people, called “coals” in the book. The remaining white people, called “pearls,” are oppressed by the “coals.” But apparently this book is real, and its author chose to promote it with a video showing a white person in blackface. The internet, not surprisingly, was not amused.
