The Fox News show Red Eye, which features the painfully unfunny Greg Gutfeld trying desperately to be amusing, is on at 3 am. Perhaps that’s why they thought they could bring on white supremacist Gavin McInnes to insult Neil DeGrasse Tyson and no one would notice it.

Walter Williams is a conservative economist who has long built his entire public image on pretending that racism no longer exists and that the right wing is correct about pretty much everything. In his latest Worldnetdaily column he clutches his pearls about the idea that public schools might discuss white privilege.

First Lady Michelle Obama gave a commencement speech in Topeka, Kansas, the school district that was the subject of the Supreme Court’s ruling in Brown v Board of Education. Unsurprisingly, she mentioned that ruling and the good that desegregation had done. That was enough to send Selwyn Duke into a total hissy fit.

One of the things that annoys me most about partisan politics is how it allows people to utter the most inane and ridiculous things and be taken seriously by their fellow partisans. Here’s a perfect example from former Speaker of the House Tom DeLay:

One of the three members of the police commission in the small town of Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, has no trouble making racist outbursts in public, loudly declaring that President Obama is a “fucking nigger.” You’d think when that went public he might at least act contrite, but he’s doubling down. He wrote this response to …

Donald Sterling is speaking out and trying to defend himself against accusations of racism. The result is a predictable mishmash of stupid statements, incoherent statements and a classic “if I said anything wrong” notpology. The interview was on CNN.

You may recall that Frank Taaffe was one of the George Zimmerman’s most vocal supporters. Now he’s trying to backtrack and say that he has changed his view of Zimmerman and concluded that he really did racially profile Trayvon Martin when he stalked and killed him.

Like that Princeton freshman who is getting far too much attention for bravely declaring that he won’t apologize for his white privilege, I won’t apologize for mine either. Or my male privilege either. Or my straight privilege. Or my middle class privilege. But guess what? No one has ever asked me to in the world …

If Larry Klayman didn’t exist, I’d have to invent him. He’s just such a reliable source of material for the blog that I don’t know what I’d do without him. In his latest Worldnetdaily column he says that the racist outbursts of Cliven Bundy and Donald Sterling only happened because Obama has put white people …

My dad likes to say that if it was announced that they were forming a new Confederate army, it would take less than a week to get a million men to sign up. David Firestone’s blog post at the New York Times about neo-Confederate views in the south suggests he’s right. But the key is …

Leave it to Bill Kristol to rush to the defense of racist Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling in the wake of his latest statement putting his bigotry on display. Ironically, Kristol says that we should judge Sterling by his actions rather than his statements:

If you thought Cliven Bundy’s racist tirade was bad, wait till you hear this one from Donald Sterling, owner of the Los Angeles Clippers of the NBA. It’s a recording of a conversation with his girlfriend in which he berates her for putting up a picture of herself with Magic Johnson.

After being caught saying that black people are lazy and shiftless and dependent on the government and that they would have been better off as slaves, his son is defending him with the usual list of excuses for racism — he was framed, it was out of context, he just isn’t articulate and by golly …

The more digging the media does on Frazier Glenn Miller, the former KKK leader who shot three people outside a pair of Jewish centers in Kansas, the more bizarre the stories get. A new station in North Carolina uncovered an arrest from the 80s where he was caught en flagrante with a black prostitute who …

I’m sure it will come as a terrible shock to find out that Cliven Bundy, the freeloading rancher in a tense standoff with the federal government, is also a racist. During his daily pep rally with supporters he went on a rant that began, “I want to tell you one more thing I know about …
