“According to the 2004 FBI National Crime Victimization Survey, in most instances of interracial crimes, the victim is white and the perpetrator is black. In the case of interracial murder for 2004, where the race of victim and perpetrator is known, more than twice as many whites were murdered by a black than cases of a white murdering a black. The failure of civil rights leaders, people like Jackson and Sharpton, as well as politicians to vocally condemn black-on-white crime — and the relative silence of the news media in reporting it — is not simply a matter of double standards. It’s dangerous, for it contributes to a pile of racial kindling awaiting a racial arsonist to set it ablaze… “
Walter E. Williams is a professor of economics at George Mason University.
The Huffington Post ran an article (June 18th) shortly after the senseless shooting in Charleston, South Carolina noting that men and women around the country who are aligned with the white resistance wanted to “distance themselves” from the barbarous act. And it is for good reason.
We represent thousands of good, loving, decent, men and women, and families, who find the murders of innocent people, in a church no less, to be unjustified and morally reprehensible! The actions of Dylan Roof are to be condemned by every liberty loving American. He receives no sympathies here.

ADELAIDE, Australia, June 19, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) — A South Australian community is in uproar after Adelaide’s City of Marion local area council voted 6-5 to permanently fly the homosexual movement’s rainbow flag. The flag had previously been flown periodically in conjunction with the Adelaide homosexual Feast Festival.
Bruce Hull is one of the councillors who had voted in favour of flying the flag permanently. A decade ago he had experienced a similar furore when he voted to have the Aboriginal flag flown and views the rainbow flag as much the same process. He sees the flag as “a very important token gesture to acknowledge that we have diversity in our community with regards to their sexual orientation.”
Hull is resolute that the gay community needs to be acknowledged in the face of a lack of acceptance and understanding. “We need to mature as a society and just be fair and reasonable,” he said.
He can see that the issue is going to cost him personally and he has already had disagreements with friends over it, but is prepared to keep his stand on the issue. “If they feel strongly enough they can vote me out at the next election.”
ST. LOUIS, MO, June 19, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) — If the US Supreme Court decides to redefine marriage in the next couple weeks it will not stop the nation’s bishops from proclaiming the truth, says the archbishop serving as point man on the issue.
“Regardless of what happens at the end of this month, nothing the court says can change what marriage truly is and we will continue to promote and defend it,” said San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone, chairman for the USCCB Subcommittee for the Promotion and Defense of Marriage.
The archbishop quoted Russian novelist Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn to illustrate the point for his fellow bishops at their Spring Assembly earlier this month in St. Louis.
“Let the lie come into the world, let it even triumph. But not through me,” said Archbishop Cordileone. “The simple step of a courageous individual is not to take part in the lie.”

Is a Sikh’s request for special accommodation an issue of religious freedom – or military effectiveness?
Iknoor Singh, 20, who will be a junior next fall at Hofstra University on Long Island, wanted to enter the school’s Reserve Officers Training Corps program. After a lawsuit, U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson issued a ruling saying adherence to Singh’s religious beliefs wouldn’t diminish his ability to serve in the ROTC unit.
Sikhism requires its male followers to wear a turban and beard and keep their hair uncut. Adherents can seek waivers on a case-by-case basis to wear religious clothing. Approval depends on where the service member is stationed and whether the change would affect military readiness or the mission.
A new yogurt commercial that markets much more than yogurt is drawing attention and causing controversy.
The Chobani yogurt ad features two nude women in bed covered only in a sheet. Monica Cole, director of American Family Association’s OneMillionMoms.com, says the ad crosses the line.
“They’re pushing the envelope here by glorifying sexual perversion,” she contends.
The commercial, she adds, features the line, “To love this life is to live it naturally.”
“Chobani’s newest ad is supporting same-sex marriage, because the two women are wearing matching wedding bands,” Cole asserts.
But she has another concern.
“We know it’s being aired during ‘Full House’ on Nickelodeon — a children’s network — also on TLC during a family-friendly program, ‘The Willis Family,’ which is about a Christian family, a large family that has wholesome values,” Cole reports. “This Chobani commercial is anything but wholesome.”
OneMillionMoms.com has launched a campaign urging Chobani to pull the commercial and remain neutral in the culture war.
An Oregon school district is paying $100,000 per year to convince white teachers they’re racist. Instead of giving hardworking teachers a bonus or even hazard pay for the litany of abuse they put up with, they are getting treated to a week-long seminar.
Students and administrators at the Gresham-Barlow school district must take the “Coaching for Educational Equity” training conference where they are provided materials that tell them in order to be “anti-racist.” Teachers are told that they should come to the following conclusions.
“All white people are racist. I am a racist.”
“Despite my best intentions I will still act out of racism and people of color may have reason to be angry with me.”
It’s more of the White Privilege movement sweeping the country. The seminar points out things about white culture that are interpreted as American, but are outside of the realm of black culture, therefore American culture is unfair. White or American culture stresses independence and “working hard for personal gain” whereas black culture is collectivist or socialist.
Instead of emphasizing that just maybe America rose to greatness because of the white culture and people who created it, they now want to dismantle America and its designers because it doesn’t fit with the inherent concepts of non-whites. And they will spend whatever it takes to make every white person feel guilty for the accomplishments of their ancestors.
Open letter to Community in River City, KY by Fraternal Oder of Police Pres.
Consider this an open letter to the public we serve, the criminal element in our city, and the self appointed spokespersons who choose to remain blind to reason, who use misinformation and who sensationalize tragedy at every opportunity to forward their political agendas.
Know this: The members of River City FOP Lodge 614, who serve and protect Louisville every day, will no longer stand on the sidelines while anyone continues to assault and demonize us.
To those of you that support us while we serve and protect you — Thank You. Although you are not chosen for media interviews, we know that you understand we are here for you and your families. We know that the vast majority of you see that ninety-nine percent of police officers serve with integrity and courage. Although we know in our hearts that you are the silent majority, sadly, that may not be enough. Soon, we may have to ask for you to rise with us against the small, but very vocal group of people in our city who resist everything we all strive to attain — freedom, safety and the ability to live our lives happily and without fear.
