The Root Attacks ‘White’ National Review Writer… Who’s Actually Black

A left-wing website attacked a “white” National Review Online writer for his perspective on black history, failing to realize the writer in question is black.

Peter Kirsanow, a member of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights and a former member of the National Labor Relations Board, argued in a piece published Thursday that the New York Times‘s 1619 Project has an “obsession” with slavery at the expense of the rest of American history. Michael Harriot, a senior reporter for the liberal African-American publication The Root, responded in a piece titled, “Black History, According to White People.” Harriot referred to Kirsanow as white throughout the post.

“As white people are wont to do, Kirsanow framed his argument in the context of Martin Luther King Jr.,” Harriot wrote. “White people love to quote King because he is a mythical figure who has been whitewashed by the very version of America that Kirsanow wants to perpetuate … ‘The 1619 Project’s obsession with race, standing alone, is bad enough,’ Kirsanow writes, whitely.”

Kirsanow was surprised to discover that he is caucasian.

“Well, I guess if Elizabeth Warren can be Cherokee, I can be white,” Kirsanow told the Washington Free Beacon. “Wait till my wife finds out.”

Harriot did not respond to a request for comment.

National Review Online editor Charles Cooke mocked the error on Twitter Friday, tweeting, “Today I learned that Peter Kirsanow is white.”

Suspected Neo-Nazi Arrested Before VA Gun Rally Is Actually an Illegal Immigrant

I often suspect I’ve woken up inside a Tom Clancy novel when I open The New York Times app and hear about how the neo-Nazi threat is all around us. Granted, actual white nationalists are a legitimate problem we shouldn’t underestimate, but I suspect it’s more a question of a bunch of out-of-shape guys in…

Dem Candidate: Chuck Schumer Doesn’t Think a Black Woman Can Win in North Carolina

State senator Erica Smith (D., N.C.) is trying to become the third black woman in history to serve in the U.S. Senate. Unfortunately, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) doesn’t think a black candidate can win in North Carolina.

That’s what Smith, a former Boeing engineer, told a group of North Carolina voters at a recent campaign event while discussing the national Democratic Party’s endorsement of her white male primary opponent, Cal Cunningham.

“Sen. Schumer, for whatever reason, did not want an African American running for Senate in North Carolina,” said Smith, who has previously attacked the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) for breaking its pledge to remain neutral in the Democratic primary.

The national party’s endorsement of Cunningham in October, Smith said at the time, was “unacceptable” and “confirm[ed] [the DSCC’s] attempt to sway this U.S. Senate election away from the voices and voters of North Carolina.”

According to Smith, DSCC executives told her “unequivocally, that they were not, had not, did not intend to endorse in the primary,” before officially backing Cunningham’s campaign.

In the weeks before Cunningham, a former state senator, announced his candidacy, his campaign received $152,000 from donors based in New York, all but two of whom have also donated to Schumer. The New York donations accounted for more than a third of Cunningham’s itemized contributions for the second quarter of 2019, according to federal election records.

With Schumer’s help, Cunningham has raised more than $3 million since entering the Democratic primary in June, including $1.6 million in the final three months of 2019. Cunningham’s fundraising haul included a $2,800 maximum contribution from liberal billionaire George Soros. Smith has not yet reported her fourth-quarter fundraising total.

“It’s not always Republicans who are putting big money [into campaigns],” Smith said at the recent campaign event. “Somebody’s going to be beholden to Chuck Schumer and New York millionaires and billionaires.”

The DSCC previously endorsed Cunningham during his failed bid in the 2010 Democratic Senate primary. North Carolina secretary of state Elaine Marshall, who defeated Cunningham in a run-off that year before losing to incumbent Sen. Richard Burr (R., N.C.), lashed out in similar fashion at the party establishment’s meddling in the race.

“North Carolina Democrats do not appreciate Washington trying to handpick or anoint their candidate,” Marshall said during the campaign.

Whichever candidate wins the primary on March 3 will face off against incumbent Sen. Thom Tillis (R., N.C.), assuming he can fend off several challengers in the GOP primary. A poll taken weeks prior to Cunningham’s campaign announcement showed Smith leading Tillis by seven points, 46 percent to 39 percent. Even so, Democratic strategists at the time were raising concerns about Smith’s viability in a general election and attempting to recruit Cunningham to enter the primary.

One of the Democrats courted by party brass, state senator Jeff Jackson, a white man, was caught on tape recounting the strategic advice he received during a meeting with Schumer. Speaking to a politics class at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Jackson recalled telling Schumer that, if he decided to run, he would hold “100 town halls in 100 days” in each of the state’s 100 counties.

According to Jackson, the Senate leader’s response was: “Wrong answer—we want you to spend the next 16 months in a windowless basement raising money, and then we’re going to spend 80 percent of it on negative ads about Tillis.”

Colin Kaepernick Decries ‘American Terrorist Attacks’ in Wake of Soleimani’s Death

Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick on Saturday came to the defense of Iran in the aftermath of the killing of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani, decrying “American terrorist attacks.”

Kaepernick, a Nike brand ambassador and frequent critic of the United States, took to Twitter to express his opposition to the Trump administration’s decision to kill Soleimani, accusing the United States of targeting minorities “at home and abroad.”

“America has always sanctioned and besieged Black and Brown bodies both at home and abroad,” Kaepernick tweeted. “America [sic] militarism is the weapon wielded by American imperialism, to enforce its policing and plundering of the non white world.”

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Friday defended the drone strike that killed Soleimani, saying that it disrupted an “imminent attack” on U.S. diplomats and service members in the Middle East. The State Department also said Soleimani was responsible for a rocket attack on an Iraqi military base that killed an American contractor, as well as last week’s assault on the U.S. embassy in Iraq.

Soleimani led the Quds Force of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps which trained, funded, and armed Iran-sympathetic terrorist groups in Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, and around the Middle East, killing thousands, including hundreds of Americans.

Kaepernick’s tweets are only his most recent courting of controversy. The former NFL quarterback first attracted criticism for kneeling during the National Anthem before games to protest the American criminal justice system. Last summer, he successfully lobbied Nike to stop selling a shoe decorated with the Betsy Ross flag, claiming the flag was racist.
