Listen: MLK’s Niece Blasts Mizzou Protesters With History Lesson They Won’t Want To Hear

The niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said her uncle would likely offer one piece of overriding advice to the University of Missouri protesters: “We all must learn to live together as brothers (and I add as sisters) or perish as fools.”

In an interview with USA Radio News’ Russ Jones, Dr. Alveda King referenced the Bible verse Acts 17:26 as a crucial fact all should keep in mind when considering people of different races. “The communities across America, including at Mizzou, [the Bible] says we are one blood, one human race, so we have the ability and the capacity to love each other as brothers and sisters and to conduct ourselves accordingly,” the minister and Georgia state representative told Jones. 

“My uncle Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, ‘We all must learn to live together as brothers (and I add as sisters) or perish as fools,’” she added. “It’s wrong to charge us with racism when we simply want to educate young people.” Listen to her remarks below: 

As reported by Western Journalism, Jones is an alumni of the University of Missouri and was dismayed to see the school undergoing such turmoil earlier this month. “This is not the beloved Mizzou many know,” he said. “How are administrators, and the nation for that matter, supposed to take seriously issues of discrimination when the facts seem to say something very different?”

Jones founded the group TruthsMattersMU to examine and challenge some of the claims being made by Concerned Student 1950, the campus group which spearheaded the Mizzou protests. Truth Matters wants to provide a space for “a rational and reasoned response to racial tensions on the campus.”

According to the TruthMattersMU Facebook page, some of the facts it believes are true include:

-President Tim Wolfe was falsely accused and should not have resigned.

-Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin should not have stepped down.

-1st Amendment rights are being threatened.

-Protests are creating further division rather than embrace diversity. 

-Questions there is system-wide racism at the University of Missouri 

The TruthMattersMU’s page was briefly shut down by Facebook for “hate speech” according to Jones. Truth Matters stated it received a notice from the social media company stating, the page did not “follow the Facebook Terms and Community Standards.”

The notification read: “While people can use Facebook to challenge ideas, institutions, and practices, Facebook removes hate speech. Hate speech includes content that directly attacks people based on their race, ethnicity, national origin, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, sex, gender, or gender identity, or serious disabilities or diseases.”

Truth Matters appealed and Facebook reversed its decision calling it an “accident.” Jones told the News Tribune that the company probably meant “mistake.”

“He suspects groups or individuals supporting the MU protesters complained about the page, and it might have been automatically taken down without anyone from Facebook looking to see whether it indeed violated any policy,” the Tribune reported. 

“We used the Facebook speech tools to restrict incendiary terms that could be considered hate speech,” said Jones. “What seems absolutely clear is that there is a cultural movement to restrict intellectual honesty.”

Breaking: Mizzou Alumni Just Got Fed Up And Took Matters Into Their Own Hands

In response to ongoing civil unrest that has disrupted campus life and forced the ouster of two top administrators, a group of University of Missouri graduates have launched an effort to refute the claims being made by protesters. TruthMattersMU recently established a social media presence, punctuated by a press release issued Friday.

Its first campaign, called the #UNITYMU Initiative, is described as an effort to unite students and faculty by celebrating what they have in common instead of focusing on differences. Alumnus Russ Jones spearheaded the movement, lamenting that his alma mater has changed drastically since he graduated more than three decades ago.

“This is not the beloved Mizzou many know,” he said. “How are administrators, and the nation for that matter, supposed to take seriously issues of discrimination when the facts seem to say something very different?”

He went on to rebuke the idea “that student life in 2015 isn’t drastically better for minorities than it was in 1950,” pointing out that “silencing opinions which may differ from yours isn’t the way you give a voice to so-called marginalized students.”

Along with a call for unity, the group released a list of assertions regarding the campus revolt – including the belief that former President Tim Wolfe and former Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin were unfairly forced out of their respective positions.

Furthermore, the statement insisted that the First Amendment is under attack on the University of Missouri campus.

“Professor Melissa Click attempted to block a student photo journalist,” the press release stated, adding that the protests are “creating further division rather than embrac[ing] diversity.”

The protesters are redefining terms including racism, the group suggested, citing the admission of one protest leader that he lied about the presence of white supremacists on campus.

Google Puts Up This Tribute To Veterans, People Instantly Notice One Detail…

Google appears to have fun putting up creative doodles on various holidays each year. On Wednesday, the internet giant’s art celebrating Veterans Day had many questioning whether the company went a bit overboard in representing the diversity of the veteran population.

While white veterans make up well over two-thirds of the ranks of those who served, the Google doodle only had a lowly white man waving from the background. Meanwhile, there were two African Americans, and various other ethnicities represented.

According to the Veterans Administration, here is the breakdown my ethnic group of the veteran population as of 2013.

The response on Twitter ranged from highly supportive to critical of Google’s diverse image.



Perhaps, the online response to the Google doodle is because race has been in the news so much of late. Here is last year’s image:

‘Afrikan Black Coalition’ Reveals 2 Shocking Goals: ‘Stop White People’ and…

A multi-campus black college student group has two goals it seeks to implement in the United States: overthrow the Constitution and “stop white people.”

The goals are related, according to Campus Reform, which reported on the movement.

The Afrikan Black Coalition, lists the University of California, Santa Barbara, UC Irvine, UC Riverside and San Diego State University as “partner schools,” where presumably supporters of the group attend. UC Santa Barbara is slated to host the coalition’s next annual conference in February 2016.

In an article titled, A New Constitution or the Bullet, published on Nov. 4 on its website, the group pronounces, “It is our human right to overthrow a government that has been destructive to our people.” 

“A Constitution written by only white men will never serve the interests Black [sic] people. The Constitution was written for the ruling class of white men which constructed whiteness to be more valuable than any other race,” the Coalition argues. “When we discuss institutional racism, it is essential that we realize the Constitution created it.”

It is not clear what aspects of the Constitution the group would seek to change in a new governing document. While the charter made provision for the institution of slavery (as a compromise to hold the nation together), the post-Civil War constitutional amendments ended it and sought to eradicate its effects. The 13th Amendment made slavery unconstitutional; the 14th Amendment guaranteed equal protection under the law, regardless of race; and the 15th Amendment guaranteed African-Americans the right to vote.

The nation continued to work out making the promises of those amendments the reality in all states for all for the next century and more, but their provisions are sound and consistent with the Declaration of Independence. Martin Luther King, Jr., Frederick Douglass and many other civil rights leaders pointed to the Declaration of Independence as containing the ideals to which the United States was called to strive.

The Afrikan Black Coalition also offers this threat: “If America fails to allow all people of this nation to write a new constitution, then it will be the bullet. Revolution is inevitable in a society that does not value the lives of all people.” In another post Nov. 9, the group made the call to stop “white people” from ongoing oppression of blacks. The article listed five reasons:

-White people have trouble respecting boundaries (see: world history, interpersonal relationships, and religious indoctrination). -White people have trouble minding their own business (see: colonialism, war, and anthropology). -White people have trouble stealing from other people, including unjustly stealing the lives of other people (see: slave patrols/police officers, music, and fashion). -White people have trouble shutting the up (see: everyday of our Black lives, particularly in the workplace and academia). -White people have trouble listening to hear rather than listening to respond (see: social media interactions, in-person interactions, and U.S. policy for Black folks & people of color).

The author of the article confessed that he once was a “white apologist,” but no more. “I would defend individual white folk without realizing I was actually justifying systemic racism,” Anthony Williams writes. “The byproduct of a white supremacist world is internalized racism within people of color.”  The group has been active on Twitter showing its solidarity with the recent student protests at the University of Missouri.

Who’s Burning Black Churches? Oh.

Here we go again: another liberal narrative burned to a crisp.

Over a two-week period in October, an arsonist targeted seven churches in the St. Louis area — including several in Black Lives Matter protest hotspot Ferguson, Missouri. The Atlantic magazine, invoking the “long history of terrorism against black churches in America,” lamented that the crime spree had been “slow to get the same attention” in the local and national media as another string of church arsons that occurred earlier this summer.

Reminder: Several of those hyped hate crimes against “black churches” had been committed by black suspects; a significant number of the “black churches” were, in fact, white churches; and the complex motives behind the crimes included mental illness, vandalism and concealment of theft.

Reminder: The same hyperventilators who stoked fears about this summer’s church incidents had also stoked hysteria about the 1990’s black church arson “epidemic” that fell apart under scrutiny and ended with USA Today admitting that “analysis of the 64 fires since 1995 shows only four can be conclusively shown to be racially motivated.”

Undaunted, agitators did their best to fan the flames over the latest alleged wave of race-based black church burnings in October. On Twitter, social justice activists resurrected the #WhosBurningBlackChurches hashtag. “Black churches are burning again,” Oklahoma State University professor Lawrence Ware lamented in Counterpunch. The far left propaganda outfit U.S. Uncut concluded unequivocally: “Racists in Ferguson Burn Down 5 Black Churches in 9 Days.”

Except, they didn’t. Again.

Last week, police charged 35-year-old David Lopez Jackson, who is black, with setting two of the fires. “Forensic evidence linked him to the fire on Oct. 18 at Ebenezer Lutheran Church, 1011 Theobald Street,” the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported, and “video of his car near New Life Missionary Baptist Church, 4569 Plover Avenue, links him to the fire there on Oct. 17, police Chief Sam Dotson said.” Jackson is a suspect in the other fires and additional charges are pending.

The arrest follows another black church hate crime spree-gone-bust in my adopted hometown of Colorado Springs. In late June, after a pair of churches received menacing notices (“Black men, be aware, you are the target,” read one), black suspect Vincent Broughton admitted to posting the ugly signs. And yes, Colorado Springs is also the home of the January 2015 NAACP office bombing that wasn’t.

The smoke-blowing never ends.

In Texas last week, a professor who cried “racism” against police officers was exposed as a fraud when dashcam video showed the cops politely asking her to move to the other side of the street while exercising — so she wouldn’t get run over.

In Berkeley, California, this week, high school and University of California students cranked up the protest machine and walked out of classes en masse over dubious “KKK” messages discovered on a school library computer. The texts threatened a “public lynching,” used the n-word, and referenced a hanging in a backyard. Of course, suspicion is warranted: Almost a year ago, Berkeley students similarly exploded after effigies of blacks hung from nooses appeared on the UC campus. It turned out they were hung by a “Bay Area collective of queer black and PoC [People of Color] artists” to raise awareness.

Unrepentant race hustlers go bonkers when advised to approach these alleged hate crimes with caution. Anyone showing an iota of skepticism or journalistic responsibility is branded a bigot or collaborator. If you’re a racial or ethnic minority who expresses doubt or hesitation, you’re a sellout or Uncle Tom/Aunt Tomasina. This is nuts. There’s a long, shameful trail of hate crime hoaxes exploiting racial division in America that can no longer be whitewashed by the media and academia. The real sellouts are the phonies and fraudsters “of color” who must manufacture racism for attention, clicks and career advancement while victims of all backgrounds pick up the pieces.
