It pays to be a race hustler: Al Sharpton received $1M in pay from his own charity

He needs that big salary as he still owes $698,470.99 in back federal taxes for three of his companies.

From Fox News: He’s the million-dollar minister. The Rev. Al Sharpton raked in $1,046,948 from his own charity last year, according to National Action Network’s latest tax filings obtained by The Post.

Sharpton got a $324,000 salary — 32% higher than his 2017 pay in addition to a $159,596 bonus and $563,352 in “other compensation.”

The Harlem-based nonprofit — which Sharpton controls as president and CEO — said the extra cash was to make up for the years from 2004 to 2017 when he didn’t get his full pay. NAN said it hired an executive compensation firm that determined the good reverend was owed $1.252 million — but he was generously willing to take $500,000 less.

Sharpton and the nonprofit’s board also agreed “he has now been fully compensated for all the years he was underpaid and received no bonus,” the NAN statement said.

The sharp-dressing, silver-tongued preacher defended the windfall before taking the stage for his weekly rally at NAN’s House of Justice in Harlem, an event where attendees throw cash in the collection bucket at the reverend’s behest.

“Fifteen years, you are talking about since 2004 when I came back after running for president,” he said. “For anybody else it would be laughable.”

He said he also deserved the 2018 raise. “It’s a six-day-a-week job and several hours a day and when [the compensation firm] compared it to other companies, other nonprofits, that’s the salary that they would get,” he said.

The firebrand activist and MSNBC host was not exactly earning minimum wage in recent years. The last year he went without a salary was 2008, and he has made well into the six figures every year since, tax documents show.

He certainly wasn’t coveting his neighbor’s paycheck in 2017, when his NAN salary came to $244,661, or the year before, when he was paid $250,000 plus a $437,555 bonus. NAN justified the bonus at the time saying it was designed to make up for a lack of full compensation, including no retirement or benefits packages over the years.

The nonprofit also noted in 2016 that Sharpton’s average yearly pay of $283,543 from 2007 through 2016 fell within the competitive range of those who held similar positions.

In 2014, Sharpton got much more than the average pay — $348,244 plus a $64,400 bonus, tax filings show.

Seattle transit agency dropping term “red line” because of racist implications

If you are a woke progressive, you can find racism in everything.

Take for example in Seattle: The local transit agency, Sound Transit, has decided to drop the term “red line” for a north-south route. This is because of an association with the racist term “redlining.”

According to Wikipedia, redlining refers to “the systematic denial of various services to residents of specific, often racially associated, neighborhoods or communities, either directly or through the selective raising of prices. While the best known examples of redlining have involved denial of financial services such as banking or insurance, other services such as health care (see also Race and health) or even supermarkets have been denied to residents.”

Apparently Sound Transit heard from a lot of community members who are very upset with the term red line. From their press release:

“As the term Red Line became more visible we heard concerns from members of our community, that this term carries unfortunate associations with the punitive practice by lenders of “redlining.”

Redlining describes the historical practice engaged in by banks to withhold home-loan funds or insurance from neighborhoods deemed to be poor economic risks. These neighborhoods were primarily comprised of racial and ethnic minorities, who were denied the opportunity to build generational wealth through home ownership.

These discriminatory practices caused widespread damage and inequities that have had a lingering impact to this day. In response, we are going to identify a new system for identifying our routes. It’s the right thing to do, and we are grateful for the community members who encouraged us to take this action.

While numerous transit systems around our country have red lines based on the widespread practice of using primary colors to label transit services, at Sound Transit we want to build a system that welcomes everyone. The term Red Line clearly works against this goal.”

Read their whole press release here.

I’m curious as to what color they will name the new line. I’m assuming the following are out due to political correctness: White, yellow and brown (for obvious reasons), blue and grey (associated with depression), and orange (think #OrangeManBad).

No matter what color they end up with, I’m sure some woke progressive – somewhere, somehow – will find a reason to be offended.

Correcting someone’s grammar is now racist

Note: This post was originally published on December 15, 2013, but it was disappeared after WordPress took down this blog, Fellowship of the Minds, on August 15, 2018. Although I have been able to restore most of our posts by retrieving them from our “Draft Posts” folder and republishing them one by one, this post is among a handful that are irretrievable. Fortunately, I was able to find this post on the net because it had been re-blogged on other sites, including FromTheTrenchesWorldReport. I am, therefore, republishing this post today.

Did you know that if a professor — whose job supposedly is to teach — corrects a student’s grammar, he is being raaaaaacist?

Of course, the “someone” who is corrected must be a “person of color” — not just any color, but a person of dark skin color.  

The plain truth is that in today’s America, under the sway of Leftwing Tyranny, criticizing a person of color about ANYTHING is being racist.

That’s what Val Rust, a professor emeritus of education and information studies at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), discovered.

Robby Soave reports for The Daily Caller, Nov. 26, 2013, that members of an UCLA student group, Call 2 Action: Graduate Students of Color, launched a sit-in protest against Professor Rust because he had the temerity to — GASP! – correct the grammar, punctuation and capitalization in “minority” students’ assignments.

According to Inside Higher Education, some 25 students participated in the sit-in, including five of the 10 members of Professor Rust’s class. The protesters wrote this statement to the college:

A hostile campus climate has been the norm for Students of Color in this class throughout the quarter as our epistemological and methodological commitments have been repeatedly questioned by our classmates and our instructor. [The] barrage of questions by white colleagues and the grammar ‘lessons’ by the professor have contributed to a hostile class climate.

As an example of Rust’s egregious racism, Ph.D. student and sit-in organizer Kenjus Watson, said the professor told one student that she should not capitalize the word “indigenous” (as in “indigenous” or native American) in her papers. Watson claimed the correction was “ideologically motivated,” whatever that means.

Rust, who was guest-lecturing in China at the time of the sit-in, sent a letter to his colleagues in the education department, saying he meant no offense to “minorities”: “I have attempted to be rather thorough on the papers and am particularly concerned that they do a good job with their bibliographies and citations, and these students apparently don’t feel that is appropriate.”

Rust also apologized for making matters worse by not aggressively and proactively taking the side of a “minority” student who was engaged in an argument with a white female student. The minority student told the woman that she had no right to feel oppressed, and Rust did not express agreement either way.

Rust wrote:

Two weeks ago a Student of Color and a white female student got into a big discussion. She wants to use Standpoint Theory [a method of analysis coined by feminist sociologist Dorothy Smith, based on the idea that all knowledge is subjective and based on one’s position in society] in her dissertation, and the Student of Color told her she had no business claiming that she was a member of an oppressed group. She came back saying there are all kinds of oppression. I likely did not handle the situation well, because I chose not to stop the discussion between them, so it went on for quite a while, and the Students of Color apparently interpreted my silence to mean I wasn’t supporting them.

Here’s Professor Rust’s email address: rust@gseis.ucla.edu

Wall Street Journal wades in on Meghan Markle controversy

The toxin that is Meghan Markle (and her thoroughly- and willingly-emasculated husband, Prince Harry) is no longer confined to the British Isles. Even Wall Street Journal is weighing in on the unending controversies she deliberately has fomented.

Gerard Baker is the Editor at Large of The Wall Street Journal. A former Editor-in-Chief of Dow Jones and The Wall Street Journal (2014-2018) and former U.S. editor and an assistant editor of the Times of London, Baker covered economics for the BBC and worked as an economist at the Bank of England and Lloyds. He  holds a degree in philosophy, politics and economics from Corpus Christi College, Oxford University.

Below is Gerard Baker’s “An American Duchess Takes to the Barricades,” Wall Street Journal, November 1, 2019, which is behind a paywall. Fortunately, The Charlatan Duchess took screenshots of the article.

Meghan and her enabler Prince Harry blame her negative press on racism — the Left’s default catch-all excuse.

But it should be noted that before she snatched the British royal, Markle had never identified as biracial. Instead, her actress bio/resume identifies her as “Caucasian” (white).

Now she wears her half-black racial identity as a badge of honor and wields it as a bludgeon against her critics, including the UK taxpayers whom she no longer fools. Just read the overwhelmingly negative readers’ comments on any article about her and Harry in the Daily Mail, such as here. See also “Brits sign petition to stop taxpayer funding of Meghan Markle & Prince Harry“.

Little known is the fact that Meghan is so proud of her black ancestry that she had cosmetic surgery to shave her bulbous negroid nose. Below are pics of her when she was a student at Immaculate Heart Middle School, a private school for girls in Los Angeles, California.

Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle Sr., had paid for her private school tuition at the Hollywood Little Red Schoolhouse and Immaculate Heart Middle School. Markle also paid for Meghan’s considerable tuition and expenses at another private institution, Northwestern University.

During a speech at the University of South Pacific in Fiji in October 2019, Meghan said she had paid for her Northwestern University tuition through scholarships, financial aid, and her campus job. That was a lie, one of many from the pathological liar.

In September 2019, Thomas Markle Sr. set the record straight. He told the Mail on Sunday (which Meghan and Harry are suing) what Meghan claims is “completely untrue” and that “I paid every penny of her tuition [at Northwestern] and I have the bank statements to prove it.”

Mr. Markle also paid for Meghan’s internship at the US embassy in Buenos Aires when she was a junior at Northwestern:

“I paid for her trips to Spain and England. I paid for her internship in Argentina. I always upheld my responsibilities as a father. Meghan’s comments about paying her way through college are offensive to me. I don’t want anything from Meghan or Harry but I’m not going to shut up until the whole truth is out there. I will continue to contradict anything said about me that isn’t true.”

Meghan’s parents, Thomas Markle and Doria Ragland, divorced when she was six. She was brought up entirely by her father, whom she has “ghosted” and didn’t invite to her London wedding. Although “climate-change activist” Harry doesn’t hesitate to fly on gas-guzzling carbon-spewing private jets, he had never bothered to meet his 75-year-old father-in-law, who is bankrupt, in poor health, and lives alone in Rosarito, Mexico.

Doria was the only member of Meghan’s biological family who was invited to the wedding. Meghan has “ghosted” not just her father, but also her paternal half-sister and half-brother, both of whom have warned the British royalty and the world about how destructive Meghan is.

Rapper YG kicks fan from stage for refusing to say ‘F*ck Donald Trump’

Last Saturday evening, October 26, at the Mala Luna Music Festival in San Antonio, Texas, a nobody rapper who calls himself YG booted one of his fans off stage, moments after inviting him up, because the fan refused to yell “fuck Donald Trump” into the microphone.

L to R: Rapper YG; fan.

After inviting the fan on stage, YG said: “I don’t know if I want to shake your hand. Hey, listen. I spotted you out in the crowd. I asked if you fuck with Donald Trump. You say you don’t know. So since you don’t know, I need you to make up your mind tonight. I need you to say your name. I want you to state your name, because I know your mamma, your daddy, your grandma, your grandfather’s watching. I want you to state your name, and yell, ‘fuck Donald Trump.’”

When the fan refused to state his name and curse the president, YG shoved him away, demanding that the fan “get outta here.” The crowd cheered.

YG ranted:

“No, you won’t? Get his ass outta here. Get him off stage. Fuck up outta here. He a Donald Trump supporter. Get his ass outta here. Don’t come to a motherfu**in’ show with YG on a motherfu**in’ billboard, Donald Trump supporter. Don’t let his a** back in the crowd. Tell ’em YG said so. Donald Trump racist, he don’t f*** with black people, so if you f**k with Donald Trump, you racist as f*** and I can’t f**k with you. Period.”

YG is the same rapper behind the song “Fuck Donald Trump”. In 2016, YG invited fans on stage to take sticks and beat a piñata bearing the likeness of then-presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Sources: Breitbart; Daily Wire

“Donald Trump racist, he don’t f*** with black people”?

Does YG not know that under Trump, the national unemployment rate for black Americans, ages 16 and over, is the lowest it has been in 17 years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics? (Western Journal):

  • The unemployment rate for black Americans decreased from 8% in November 2016 to 7.3% in November 2017.
  • Blacks’ labor force participation rose from 61.9% in November 2016 to 62.2% in November 2017.
  • In contrast, black unemployment rate during the Bush and Obama administrations fluctuated between 7% and 17%. (CNS News)

My only question is why this “fan” was even in YG’s audience in the first place. He is yet another useful idiot.

Fake Hate Crime: Black girl admits she lied about being attacked by 3 white boys

Last month, this racially-motivated white-on-black hate-crime was widely reported by the MSM — that Amari Allen, 12, a black female student at the Immanuel Christian School in Springfield, Virginia, “where Vice President Mike Pence’s wife works,” said that on Monday, Sept. 23, 2019, she was assaulted by three sixth-grade white boys.

Allen claimed that she was about to go down a slide during recess when one of the boys grabbed her and put his hand over her mouth. The second boy grabbed her arms, while the third cut off some of her dreadlocks. Allen said, “They said my hair was nappy and I was ugly.”

 

Allen said that she was afraid to tell anyone until two days later, when a family member was doing her hair and noticed the missing locks. The girl and her grandfather told NBC4 in Washington, DC, that she broke down in tears as she recounted the assault to the family member. Allen’s grandfather said he was deeply shaken by her account: “My heart just broke. I was just paralyzed. I couldn’t get myself together.”

Allen said the same three boys have been bullying her since the beginning of the school year. The family reported the assault to the Fairfax County Police Department.

Insinuating guilt by association, MSM outlets (NBC News, Newsweek, New York Times, Washington Post, Daily Beast) made it a point that Vice President Mike Pence’s wife, Karen, teaches art part time at the private Christian school.

It turns out this is yet another instance of an entirely fake hate-crime.

On Sept. 30, 2019, Allen’s grandparents, who are her legal guardians, admitted that the girl had made the whole thing up. The grandparents issued the following apology that the school sent to the Washington Post:

To those young boys and their parents, we sincerely apologize for the pain and anxiety these allegations have caused. To the administrators and families of Immanuel Christian School, we are sorry for the damage this incident has done to trust within the school family and the undue scorn it has brought to the school. To the broader community, who rallied in such passionate support for our daughter, we apologize for betraying your trust.

We understand there will be consequences and we’re prepared to take responsibility for them. We know that it will take time to heal, and we hope and pray that the boys, their families, the school and the broader community will be able to forgive us in time.

But as Becket Adams of the Washington Examiner points out, the girl’s retraction will not be widely reported:

The reporters who tried to slime Pence with Allen’s allegation . . . know full well that the eventual correction almost never gets the same amount of attention as the original falsehood. Correction or not, the damage is already done. There will not be an end to this sort of sloppy and irresponsible reporting because the dirty not-so-secret is that a significant number of journalists see themselves more as being in the business of ‘resisting’ the Trump White House than keeping the public informed . . . . 

This keeps happening. Newsrooms keep embracing dubious allegations of harmful, bigoted behavior because too many reporters are not operating as reporters. They are operating instead as political activists. They’ve already drawn their conclusions about the Trump White House. Their goal now is to find supporting evidence, and things such as Allen’s since-recanted story are the perfect match.

Fake MAGA Crime: Former NFL player charged for spraying the “N” word and MAGA on walls to make it look like a hate crime

Faux victim Edwan Coughman

From Daily Mail: A former NFL player was arrested by police for allegedly wrecking two of his own businesses to stage a fake hate crime and be eligible to receive insurance money.

Authorities from the Gwinnett County Police Department in Georgia responded to a ‘burglary in progress’ call around 9.30pm on Wednesday when a witness reported a man damaging businesses.

The two businesses, Create and Bake Restaurant and Coughman’s Creamery, belonged to former NFL player and local business owner Edwan Coughman.

Inside the businesses, officers found ‘monkey’, the n-word, ‘MAGA’ and swastikas scrawled on the walls in fresh black spray paint.

‘The smell of spray paint was very fresh. When officers touched it, the paint appeared wet,’ a news release from police said.

The cushions were reportedly sliced open, mirrors were broken, wires were cut, TVs were missing and the surveillance system was broken.

According to a news release, the witness told officers the suspect was driving a Chevrolet Silverado with no license plate.

Cpl. Michele Pihera told Gwinette Daily Post: ‘We believe he used that possibly not to have the truck or identity of the truck return back to him.’

After authorities dispatched to look for the suspicious vehicle saw one that matched the description leaving a shopping center. Behind the wheel was Coughman.

Officers noticed several TVs both inside and in the bed of his truck that were still attached to brackets with damaged drywall. Coughman was also wearing a pair of gloves, the Gwinette Daily Post reported.

The 31-year-old told authorities he realized his businesses had be burglarized earlier in the day, but contacted his insurance company instead of local police.

Suspicious, police officers obtained a search warrant to search Coughman’s car on Thursday.They found cans of black spray paint and a crow bar allegedly used to pry open the back door to one of the businesses.

Coughman was arrested in the early morning hours of Thursday for false report of a crime, insurance fraud and concealing a license plate.

The police statement said: ‘It appears as though Edawn conjured a premeditated plan to damage his own property, attempt to make it appear as a hate crime, file a claim with his insurance company, and sell off the undamaged appliances and electronics.’

Cpl. Pihera told the Gwinette Daily Post: ‘We don’t know if he was trying to get attention for this. What we do know is, if that witness had not called us and if those officers had not responded as quickly as they did, we would probably be sitting here talking about a completely different crime in which Mr. Coughman would be trying to say he’s a victim.’

As the investigation continues, the number of victims will be determined.

‘We’re also looking into the fact that his insurance company could also be a victim, depending on if a claim was in process. … There’s also a possibility the owner of the building could also be a victim,’ Pihera said.

‘The case does not fit the mold of our typical criminal investigations, so we have to look outside of the box to see how many victims we truly have.’

Coughman was bonded out of jail.

8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reinstates North Dakota voter ID requirement

Democrats vehemently oppose voter identification (ID), claiming that requiring voter ID is a form of “voter suppression” because, for some inexplicable reason, requiring them to show their IDs especially would discourage and prevent people-of-color from voting.

But as The Daily Signal points out, voter ID laws are rooted in a desire to promote election integrity because election fraud has been and continues to plague U.S. elections, as can be seen in The Heritage Foundation’s election fraud database. Moreover, a recent study by the National Bureau of Economic Research shows that voter ID laws have no discernible effect on reducing the turnout of voters. Over the period 2008 to 2016, the researchers found that voter ID “laws have no negative effect on registration or turnout, overall or for any group defined by race, gender, age, or party affiliation.

North Dakota is the only U.S. state that does not require citizens to register to vote. In that state, without having registered to vote, a resident can show up on Election Day and vote —as long you show identification.

North Dakota’s state legislature stipulates that a valid form of identification must show the voter’s legal name, current residential address, and date of birth. Valid IDs include a driver’s license, a nondriver’s ID card issued by the state Department of Motor Vehicles, or an “official form of identification issued by a tribal government to a tribal member residing in the state”.

However, even if an individual cannot produce one of the three acceptable IDs, North Dakota would still allow him/her to vote if s/he produces a current utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, or a check or other document issued by a federal, state, or local government agency.

Moreover, a prospective voter who cannot provide either a valid form of ID or a supplemental documentation like a bank statement, may still vote. But his/her ballot would be set aside until the voter presents an acceptable ID either before the close of the polls that day, or within 6 days to “an employee of the office of the election official responsible for the administration of the election.”

Despite the reasonableness of North Dakota’s voter ID law, in January 2016, six members of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians sued, claiming that the ID requirement restricted the ability of tribal members to register and exercise their right to vote, in violation of the U.S. Constitution, state law, and Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

As described in Court House News, the 6 Native American plaintiffs — Richard Brakebill, Dorothy Herman, Della Merrick, Elvis Norquay, Ray Norquay, Lucille Vivier — claimed that the ID requirement places an unconstitutional burden on the right to vote of many Native Americans because Native Americans in North Dakota are “disproportionately homeless” and “often live on reservations or in other rural areas where people do not have street addresses; even if they do … those addresses are frequently not included on tribal IDs.” It must be noted that the six plaintiffs themselves all have residential addresses.

On August 1, 2016, the U.S. District Court for the District of North Dakota – Bismarck granted the plaintiffs’ motion for a preliminary injunction, on the grounds that voter ID imposes “excessively burdensome requirements” on Native American voters in North Dakota which outweigh the State’s asserted interests. The district court cited statistical evidence that North Dakota’s voter ID law would prevent 2,305 Native Americans from voting because they did not possess a valid ID.

North Dakota Secretary of State Alvin Jaeger appealed the district court’s decision.

On July 31, 2019, in a 2-1 decision, the 3-judge panel of the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reinstated North Dakota’s voter ID requirement and tossed out the lower district court’s injunction. The three judges are:

  • Steven Colloton, a G. W. Bush appointee.
  • William Benton, a G. W. Bush appointee.
  • Jane Kelly, an Obama appointee.

In Brakebill et al. v. Jaeger, Judge Steven Colloton writes for the 2-to-1 majority (it’s no mystery who the dissenting judge is):

  • North Dakota’s voter ID law “does not impose a burden on voters that justifies a statewide injunction” preventing the state from implementing the ID requirement because only less than 0.5% of all eligible voters in North Dakota do not have a valid ID or supplemental documentation.
  • Requiring voters to have a residential street address is not discriminatory. Judge Colloton cites former Associate Justice John Paul Stevens’ opinion in Crawford v. Marion County Election Board (2008), in which the Supreme Court upheld Indiana’s voter ID requirement: A “residential street address furthers North Dakota’s legitimate interest in preventing voter fraud and safeguarding voter confidence, so unlike a poll tax, it is not invidiously ‘unrelated to voter qualifications.’”
  • The 6 plaintiffs presented no evidence to support their contention that residents without a valid ID had “attempted to obtain a supplemental document and were unsuccessful.”
  • Colloton concludes that “In short, the evidence is insufficient to show that the valid form of identification requirement places a substantial burden on most North Dakota voters.”

The 6 Native American plaintiffs of the original lawsuit — Richard Brakebill, Dorothy Herman, Della Merrick, Elvis Norquay, Ray Norquay, Lucille Vivier — have filed an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court to vacate the Circuit Court’s ruling.

4 of the 6 plaintiffs have a criminal record. See “4 of 6 Native Americans who sued to prevent North Dakota from implementing voter ID law, have a criminal record“.

Rapper pulls out of “AfroFuture” festival after learning they charge white people a higher ticket price

What the festival is doing sounds both racist and illegal.

From MSN: Detroit-based rapper Tiny Jag pulled out of a Detroit, MI music festival this week after she learned that white concert-goers would be charged a higher price than people of color.

Jag, also known as Jillian Graham, told the Detroit Metro Times that she found out about AfroFuture Fest’s pay model when a white friend reached out to her and sent her a screenshot via Instagram that outlined the pay difference. The early bird POC (“people of color”) ticket was $10 while the early bird “non-POC” ticket cost $20.

“I was immediately enraged just because I am biracial,” Graham told the Metro Times. “I have family members that would have, under those circumstances, been subjected to something that I would not ever want them to be in … especially not because of anything that I have going on.”

The organizers of the event are upfront that they are charging different prices based on race, including sharing artwork on social media with a caption about early-bird tickets that reads, “Early Bird POC Tickets are $10 & $20 for NONPOC’s & on sale until JULY 17th.”

Jag said it was hard to cancel the show, and apologized to her fans.

“It’s not fun to withdraw out of shows, especially at home, especially in your hometown, and especially when your supporters have been so good to you,” she says. “It’s also not fun to do that to my fellow Black women, like that sucks too. It sucks that this is a thing that’s put a wedge here.”

AfroFuture Fest shared a message on their event page on ticketing site Eventbrite, explaining their price discrepancy. They explained that their ticket structure was built to ensure people in the community would have an equitable chance to enjoy the event.

Read the whole story here.

UPDATE from Breitbart: “AfroFuture Cancels Race-Based Ticket Prices After Eventbrite Demands Reversal”

Good on Eventbrite for putting an end to this nonsense!
