California School Board Might Give The Mexican Children Air Conditioning Even Though They Are Mexican, Hooray!

Well yeah, it kinda is!
A lady on the school board in Martinez, California, name of Denise Elsken, made people very mad in March, by saying that this one elementary school, where the white kids go, needs all the A/C, and that this other school, where the Latino kids go, does not. Why? Because the brown kids are “more acclimated” to heat, because they are poor and Mexican, we guess. Here, specifically, is what she said: Read more on California School Board Might Give The Mexican Children Air Conditioning Even Though They Are Mexican, Hooray!…
 

Whether In Blackface Or Not, Mindy Kaling’s Brother Is Consistently A D*ck

The only time we've ever been tempted to do like Perez Hilton and draw a dick on somebody's face.
Mindy Kaling, the beloved comedienne who created and currently stars in The Mindy Project, is delightful. She catapulted into her current position after spending years as a producer, director, writer AND character on The Office. Mindy Kaling is not a dick, as far as we know. But this is not about Mindy Kaling. Her brother, though? Hoo boy! Kaling’s brother, Vijay Chokalingam, is quite a dick!

Here Are The Racist Emails That Landed Sh*tty Ferguson Officials In The Unemployment Line

Good thing they didn't send their emails to Strongbad, he would have gotten SO MAD.
If former court clerk Mary Ann Twitty, of Ferguson, Missouri, had been paying any attention to Hillary Clinton’s lessons, she might still have a job right now. Same goes for Rick Henke and William Mudd, who used to be police captain and police sergeant, respectively. Instead, it never occurred to them that “hey we send each other racist haw haw jokes all the time, maybe we should delete them, or maybe do this over Snapchat,” and they were relieved of their jobs in March. Well, now we actually get to see the emails! Were they talking about how much they wanted to lynch slaves or how Barack Obama should go back and live with the monkeys in Africa? Less of the former, more of the latter.

Army Unit Has ‘Racial Thursdays’ Tradition To Relieve Stress Of Not Being Racist The Other Days

Come to serve your country, stay for the constant racial denigration!
Who is in trouble for racism this time? Oh, hello, it is a platoon of soldiers at Fort Wainwright in Alaska who have allegedly been holding an unauthorized “Racial Thursdays” event, where everybody gets to say all the awful racist shit that they’ve been thinking the whole week, but have had to swallow, due to the pressures of being civilized human beings: Read more on Army Unit Has ‘Racial Thursdays’ Tradition To Relieve Stress Of Not Being Racist The Other Days…

Lawsuit Alleges Nice California Teacher Taught Students About Racism, By Being Racist

What? You were expecting a more creative picture here? Please.
Racial transcendence is alive and well in Brentwood, California, if the allegations in a new lawsuit are true. The case states that Steven Carnine, an 8th grade history teacher at Paul Revere Charter Middle School and Magnet Center, figured that the best way to teach his kids, several of whom are Not White, about racism, would be just to lob a bunch of racial stereotypes at them: Read more on Lawsuit Alleges Nice California Teacher Taught Students About Racism, By Being Racist…

Surprise! City Of Ferguson Run By A Bunch Of Grifty Criminal Racists!

Every time we read another nugget of information dug out of the Justice Department’s report on the gangster cartel that has run the town of Ferguson, it becomes more apparent that the town’s entire municipal court and police force need, to borrow a phrase from conservative plans for Obamacare, a root-and-branch repeal. Or, put another way, fire the entire apparatus out of a cannon into the sun. Read more on Surprise! City Of Ferguson Run By A Bunch Of Grifty Criminal Racists!…

Oklahoma Frat That Doesn’t Want Any ‘N*ggers’ Gets Its Wish, Will No Longer Frat At All

Over the weekend, a charming They Seem Nice video emerged of some frat bros just being frat bros on their frat bro party bus: Members of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity appear to be shown in the video chanting “There will never be a nigger in SAE. You can hang them from a tree, but they’ll never sign with me.” The video was tweeted by Unheard, “an alliance of Black students organized for change within campus administration and atmosphere” at the University of Oklahoma. Because the arc of justice needs to take its sweet time, the university’s president, David Boren, released a statement saying (more or less) “Whoa if true!” and promised to investigate: Read more on Oklahoma Frat That Doesn’t Want Any ‘N*ggers’ Gets Its Wish, Will No Longer Frat At All…
 

Obama Mentions Voting Rights At Selma, Conservatives Outraged Of Course

it's not playing the
On Saturday, your blackest president ever, Barack Obama, traveled to Selma, Alabama, to speak at the 50th anniversary commemoration of “Bloody Sunday,” when civil rights protesters were beaten by police when they walked across the Edmund Pettus Bridge. The events of Bloody Sunday and other protest marches in Alabama led directly to the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, so this is an excellent event to solemnly celebrate, and we are very happy that both Republicans and Democrats joined in attending the event, including former President George W. Bush and many congressional Republicans. Read more on Obama Mentions Voting Rights At Selma, Conservatives Outraged Of Course…

Justice Department Has Some Thoughts On The Ferguson P.D.

Sorry, dude.
On Wednesday, the Justice Department released two reports related to last summer’s events in Ferguson, Missouri. One report dealt with Officer Darren Wilson’s shooting of Michael Brown. The other dealt with the city of Ferguson being run by a bunch of racist shitheels who used the mostly black and impoverished civilian population as a perpetual revenue-generating machine instead of treating them like human beings. Guess which report the wingnutgentsia seems most interested in! Read more on Justice Department Has Some Thoughts On The Ferguson P.D….

Tennessee Lawmaker Lady Named Butt Not Racist, Just Loves White People

Gather round, little children, your Tennessee Wonkette has a nice story for you! It is about one of our august state representatives, a gentlelady by the name of Sheila Butt, who once said there would be no global warming if we used more hairspray, but this is not about that. This is about the fact that Sheila is Not Racist. Everybody is being mean to her and saying she is racist, though, because she went on the Facebook recently to comment on a nice note from the Council on American-Islamic Relations encouraging Republicans to stop hating Muslims so much. Butt said what we REALLY NEED is a “Council on Christian Relations” and a “NAAWP,” which some dumb liberal media types are dumbly and liberally assuming might stand for National Association For The Advancement Of White People, but they are wrong.

Decent Seattle Police Union Head Risks Getting Thrown Out Of Police Union Head Union

Rudy Giuliani Isn’t Racist, Just Can’t Stand That White Guy Who’s President

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani clarified his recent comments about Barack Obama yesterday, explaining that when he said that Barack Obama “doesn’t love America,” he was “not questioning his patriotism.” That’s actually true: Giuliani wasn’t questioning Obama’s patriotism; he was saying outright that Obama just plain doesn’t have any.

Rudy Giuliani: Hey, Did You Ever Notice Obama’s Not One Of Us? If You Know What I Mean?

Screw you too, pal
Apparently tired of being associated with competent mayoring on 9/11 and then never shutting up about it, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani seems determined to reframe his legacy. Why he’d decide that acting like the Second Coming of Lester Maddox is a bit of a mystery, though. At a private dinner for Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker Wednesday, Giuliani shared his suspicion that Barack Obama doesn’t really love America because he’s a weirdo foreigner. Giuliani was careful to note that he only pointed this out because he cares. Read more on Rudy Giuliani: Hey, Did You Ever Notice Obama’s Not One Of Us? If You Know What I Mean?…

Convicted Felon Dinesh D’Souza Calls Obama ‘Ghetto.’ From Jail.

D'Asshole
So there is this guy, Dinesh D’Souza, and he is a wingnut “writer” and “filmmaker” and philanderer and felon. And while he is sitting in his pretend prison halfway house for wayward wingnut felons — instead of being locked up in actual prison, where he belongs, for making illegal contributions in violation of federal campaign finance laws, which he pleaded guilty to, yet somehow insists he did nothing wrong, HUH — he is passing the time by tweeting really nuanced observations about President Obama.

Not-Racist Mississippi Gent Very Sorry Now For All That Not-Racism

According to his notes, he's very sorry now
Hooray, we have defeated racism once again! It seems like it was just days ago that Mississippi state Rep. Gene Alday (R-Even Though Democrats Are The REAL Racists) was still trying to justify his charming reflections on coming “from a town where all the blacks are getting food stamps and what I call ‘welfare crazy checks.'” Oh right! That’s because it was on Monday, of this very same week, that he said those comments were supposed to be “off the record.” Plus, the reporter who’d cornered him into saying that stuff had called him “late at night,” and everyone knows how easily racism rolls right off the tongue after sundown. Not that it was racism, mind you, because as Alday was insisting up until a second ago, “I didn’t do anything wrong. The guy made me look like a fool.” So, per the standard procedure of Racist Dude Says Racist Thing, after “out of context” and “I’m not sorry cuz I didn’t do nothin’ wrong,” we have the sincere and very credible apology: Read more on Not-Racist Mississippi Gent Very Sorry Now For All That Not-Racism…

Fine Mississippi Gentleman Lawmaker Definitely Not Racist About Welfare And ‘The Blacks’

he steams nice.
Mississippi state Rep. Gene Alday (R-Circa 1844, Most Other Years) is not a fan of a new state education bill under consideration, which would prevent third grade students from advancing to the fourth grade if they don’t reach a certain reading proficiency level.

Deeply Stupid Small Business ‘Seasalt & Co’ Will Sue You For Bitching Bout Its Sweet Lynching Ad (Updated)

What? It's just a picture.
Update: Since this story broke, Seasalt & Co. has removed all posts after February 14 from its Facebook page. See end of post for more. So here’s a nice little case study for your How Not To Do Corporate Communications, Ever textbook, and if Yr. Dok Zoom were still teaching business writing, he’d probably get at least one or two class periods out of it. You got this little Florida-based computer graphics concern called “Seasalt & Company,” where you “offer Photographic Editing Tools to help artisans creativity thrive.” Which is to say, you sell Photoshop add-ons that adjust the lighting and color of photos. You have a new package of somegodddamnedtechthing coming out (really, REALLY unclear, Seasalt & Co!), and you announce it on your Facebook page with the big mysterious teaser pictured above.

Racist Mississippi Judge Indicted For Assault and Racial Slur, Probably Isn’t Even Racist

Well, who is this happy bro, with the smug and smiley mug shot? This is Mississippi Justice Court Judge Bill Weisenberger, who was just indicted by a Mississippi Grand Jury for felony assault on a vulnerable adult. Weisenberger is accused of smacking Eric Rivers, a cognitively disabled 20-year-old black man, and then yelling “run, nigger, run!” Read more on Racist Mississippi Judge Indicted For Assault and Racial Slur, Probably Isn’t Even Racist…

Bobby Jindal Can’t See Race, Not Even In The Mirror

Dang, still looks nothing like him.
So last week or so, there was a thing Wonkette was going to type about, concerning a certain “official portrait” of Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, shown above, that, um, did not look like him, not even a little bit. I mean, judge for yourself, but that is not what Bobby Jindal’s face looks like, not even close, and SOME PEOPLE ON THE INTERNET pointed out that, PERHAPS, Bobby Jindal’s skin is quite a bit darker than that, because they are not racially transcendent. One headline asked, “Was Brown Paint Busy When They Created This Bobby Jindal Portrait?” But then everyone was made aware that it was NOT an “official portrait” at all, but just some thing one of his constituents made for him after school one day, so we didn’t write a thing about it.

Vermont Proposes Official Latin Motto, Wingnuts Tell Vermont To Go Back To Mexico

Now write it down a hundred times. If it's not done by sunrise, I'll cut your balls off.
Here’s a sweet little story of Democracy in Action. A bright eighth grader writes to her state legislator with an idea for a law: Vermont doesn’t have an official Latin motto, so why not adopt one? And for that matter, make it a reference to history? Neato! Read more on Vermont Proposes Official Latin Motto, Wingnuts Tell Vermont To Go Back To Mexico…
