A photo of a student who had painted his face black to impersonate an African-American figure sparked outrage among Miami Catholic school alumni after it was shared online. The photo was taken during a Black History Month celebration at St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic School in Miami, the Miami Herald reported. Fourth-grade students had been asked to dress up as famous African-Americans while presenting on them. A student who chose former Secretary of State Colin Powell wore “blackface” as part his costume. (Snip) Archdiocese of Miami spokeswoman Mary Ross Agosta said the child had not meant to be offensive.

Comments:
The kids were asked to don costumes in homage of renowned Africans living in America, and thanks to the handicap of his melanin deficiency, one child is singled out for scorn and ridicule.

OUTRAGE is the knee-JERK response of those who seek any OPPORTUNITY to be offended even when no offense is intended. Such is the dysfunctionality of obsessive political correctness.

Way back when life was simpler my choral group put on Showboat. Since there were no black singers, half the company put on dark make up and sang the black songs. It was never thought of as offensive, far from it. It was a grand opportunity to sing some great music.

Black History Month, the operative word being "Black" and the assignment being to impersonate an "African-American" person one would think the first requirement would be to match the only different and distinguishing characteristic, the color of the skin. Only one student bothered to "answer the full question." Everybody else gets an "F".

Sarah Sanders was kicked out of a Virginia restaurant with her family on Friday night because the manager did not want to serve her following the backlash over Trump´s child migrant separation policy, it has been claimed. Jaike Foley-Schultz, a server at the Red Hen in Lexington, said the White House Press Secretary lasted just two minutes in the restaurant until his boss asked her to leave. ´I just served Sarah Huckabee Sanders for a total of 2 minutes before my owner kicked her out along with 7 of her other family members,´ he posted on Facebook.

An undocumented immigrant has been accused of raping and impregnating a 13-year-old nonverbal girl he was babysitting in Maryland. Reynaldo Mora, 41, of Bethesda, is accused of assaulting the teenager who communicates with ´gestures and writing´ and has the ´intellect of a first grader,´ police said, in the bedroom at her home, while her two siblings were there. Mora is currently charged with sex abuse of a minor, plus two counts of second-degree rape. Mora´s defense attorney told ABC 7´s WJLA that authorities arrested the wrong man and that pending results of a paternity test will show it.

Italy’s new hardline, anti-immigrant interior minister has refused port to a Dutch-flagged rescue ship carrying more than 200 migrants because it is now in Maltese waters. On Thursday, Matteo Salvini accused the ship, which is operated by German NFO Mission Lifeline, of acting improperly by taking on board the 224 migrants that the Italian coast guard had assigned to the Libyan coast guard to rescue. He claimed the rescue was in Libyan waters, which Lifeline denies. “I want to save lives but I’m paid by Italians to defend the safety of Italian citizens.

A man charged with murdering eight people on a New York City bike path invoked “Allah” and defended the Islamic State group in court Friday, reports said. Sayfullo Saipov, 30, raised his hand to speak out immediately after U.S. District Judge Vernon S. Broderick set an Oct. 7, 2019, date for the Uzbek immigrant´s trial. He said he cared about "Allah" and the holy war being waged by the Islamic State group. "So the Islamic State is not fighting for land, like some say, or like some say, for oil. They have one purpose, and they're fighting to impose Sharia (Islamic law) on Earth," he said. (Snip) Prosecutors had been seeking an April

General Motors Co is going ahead with its plan to manufacture the new Chevrolet Blazer SUV in Mexico, a spokesman for the automaker said, despite criticism by U.S. President Donald Trump over making vehicles abroad. Trump has been pressing automakers to build more vehicles in the United States under efforts to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). ´We remain committed to working with the administration on a modernized NAFTA,´ GM spokesman Pat Morrissey said, adding the decision was made years ago.

New York is freeing another
cop killer from prison

Another Black Liberation Army cop killer is getting parole — Robert Hayes, a cold-blooded thug who killed a transit cop in a senseless subway platform shootout in 1973, then turned a sawed-off shotgun on the five cops who later busted into his hideout. Transit patrolman and father of two Sidney Thompson, 37, lost his life for merely trying to arrest the then-23-year-old Hayes and a second BLA member for jumping a turnstile. Sentenced to 35-to-life in 1974 — before state law mandated life without parole for cop killers — Hayes will get out as early as July 24, The Post has learned.

Gangbangers peddle drugs in plain sight, hustlers resell cheap booze on the street corner — 50 cents will get you a capful — and prostitutes lead johns to the boarded-up husk of what used to be a Taco Bell. This is Tompkinsville Park on Staten Island’s North Shore in 2018 and, to area residents and merchants caught in its heroin and K2-infested vortex, this is a battlefield. “Every day you see muggings, prostitutes, people smoking crack and shooting up heroin,” said Xhafer Gjeshbitraj, 52, who owns a building across the street from the tiny, triangular park bounded by Bay Street

Starbucks may have appeased progressives with its social-justice workshops and open-bathroom policy, but such moves have failed to caffeinate the company’s bottom line. The coffee giant’s stock took a tumble Wednesday after CEO Kevin Johnson announced that Starbucks would close 150 company-owned stores next year instead of the expected 50, with an emphasis on underperforming shops in densely populated urban areas, and lowered growth projections.

Women will soon be getting their place among the city’s overwhelmingly male statues and monuments. Officials launched a push Wednesday to put up a monument marking women’s contributions to the city — and are asking the public to nominate women they’d like to see honored. “This is the day we finally start putting women where they belong — on pedestals,” said deputy mayor Alicia Glen, who joined Mayor de Blasio’s wife, Chirlane McCray, to make the announcement at Bryant Park — a rare spot that already has two monuments to women.

Three U.S. airlines said Wednesday they don’t want the government to use them to assist in some parts of immigration enforcement, in the latest protest to the family separation situation on the border. American, United and Frontier airlines, which have contracts with Homeland Security to fly people in immigration detention, said they have no idea if they are being used for the purpose — but lodged their objections anyway. “We have no desire to be associated with separating families, or worse, to profit from it. We have every expectation the government will comply with our request, and we thank them

The Trump administration’s decision to house children separated from their parents at the southern border in temporary “tent cities” is not only shameful, it’s expensive. It costs three-times as much per person to keep kids at the temporary facilities than it would to allow them to stay with their parents in detention centers, according to a report Wednesday. Housing a child or teenager in one of the newly-constructed tents costs about $775-a-night, officials with the Department of Health and Human Services told NBC News. It costs only $256 per person per night to hold children in a permanent facility like

Former Fox News contributor George Will says voters must punish Republican “poodles” during the midterm elections to “quarantine” the president. An op-ed in Friday’s Washington Post by the long-time political pundit and conservative calls for voters to end the “carnage of Republican misrule” in Washington. Mr. Will claimed the “most telegenic example” of a need to oust Republicans exists with the administration’s “zero tolerance” policy regarding illegal immigrants along the U.S. southern border. “The Republican-controlled Congress, which waited for Trump to undo by unilateral decree the border folly they could have prevented by actually legislating, is an advertisement for the unimportance of

Taxes: Whatever you think about the issue of taxing internet sales, the simple fact is that the Supreme Court has just guaranteed that people across the country will now be paying more in state taxes. It´s hard for us to see how this is good news. In its 5-4 decision on South Dakota v. Wayfair, the court overturned two previous rulings that prevented states from taxing sales of out-of-state companies. That meant a catalog company based in Maine didn´t have to navigate 45 state sales-tax laws to figure out how much each customer owed, and then remit that money to the

How´s this for sneaky? Sen. John McCain, not too long after seeking conservative and Republican votes in his failed 2008 bid for the presidency, went right after those same conservative voters without telling them, by egging on the IRS to ruin them. It´s the sort of political back-stabbing that defies belief, taking an active role in destroying the Tea Party, which was an authentic grassroots movement of local groups calling for smaller government. But sure enough, Judicial Watch has found McCain´s central role right there in the documents: Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen.
