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".

We should be focusing on the real pressing issue of cultural appropriation.

Lopes then took Chesna’s gun and blasted him several times in the head and chest before resuming his flight, authorities said. As other officers gave chase, Lopes allegedly squeezed off three more rounds, missing his pursuers but fatally striking an unidentified elderly woman

A 13-year-old girl in Alabama was beheaded because she saw her Sinaloa Cartel-associated granny stabbed to death by drug traffickers, authorities have said. Mariah Lopez, 13, and her grandmother Oralia Mendoza, 49, were killed on June 4 in Moon Cemetery outside of Huntsville, Alabama, prosecutors revealed in court on Thursday. The new details in the case came in a hearing for 26-year-old Yoni Aguilar, who along with 34-year-old Israel Palomino is charged with two counts each of capital murder in the slayings. At the hearing, investigators testified that the grandmother Mendoza had ties to the Sinaloa Cartel,

Please send your thoughts and Amtrak prayers for Paul Ryan as news emerges that his car has been devoured by a family of hungry woodchucks, a sharp-toothed member of the marmot family also known as a groundhog. The vandalism took place while Ryan was in Washington, and had left his Chevy Suburban parked at his mother’s house in Wisconsin over the winter. A family of woodchucks made a home in the chassis and gnawed their way through the wiring. (Snip) Ryan hasn’t actually driven the car for three years, as he has a security detail and is chauffeured around.

Her fake terminal cancer bought her two years — in prison. A wacko who tricked an entire Westchester community into believing she had terminal cancer was sentenced Friday for using her bogus affliction to scam people out of more than $50,000. Vedoutie Hoobraj, who was known as Shivonie Deokaran, even duped her boyfriend and two sons into helping her raise money off her phony terminal leukemia between 2014 and 2016. The cash flowed in through GoFundMe pages — and even a fund-raiser organized by her son’s teammates on the Ardsley High School football team. Prosecutors said more than 400 people

The gloves are off in the race for New York lieutenant governor. Incumbent Kathy Hochul slammed Democratic primary rival Jumaane Williams for having "not consistently supported" abortion rights in a web video ad released Thursday. “With President Trump attacking New York every day we must fight back. His recent Supreme Court nominee could end Roe v Wade and a woman’s right to choose. Cynthia Nixon’s running mate Mr. Williams has been socially conservative and has not consistently supported a woman’s right to choose,” Hochul said. A headline appeared quoting Williams, a Brooklyn councilman, saying in 2013, “I am personally not in favor

Migrants have threatened to kill the coast guard crews that rescued them if they take them back to Libya. The Italian coast guard ship - the Diciotti - carrying the migrants docked in Sicily earlier this week. But has since been refused permission to disembark its 67 passengers after two of them were accused of threatening their rescuers. Interior minister Matteo Salvini said he will not let the migrants off until there is clarity over what happened after an Italian commercial tugboat rescued them over the weekend. Italy´s transport minister said some migrants made death threats against the crew.

The Trump administration said Thursday that nearly half of the children ages 5 and under who were separated from grown-ups at the U.S. border can´t be reunited with their parents, mostly because many of the adults are violent criminals – and some lied about being the minors´ parents. President Donald Trump had claimed Tuesday that illegal immigrants and human traffickers were ´using children´ to manipulate America´s immigration system and make it easier for adults to enter the U.S. without papers and remain there. Of the 103 minors in the youngest age group, the administration has reunited 57 with parents, but the other

Prince Charles and Prince William reportedly ‘snubbed’ the US President during his visit to Britain - leaving the Queen to meet Donald Trump alone at Windsor Castle. The royal father and son apparently shared their desire to not take part in the arrangements during informal discussions regarding the president’s four-day tour. Trump’s trip was not a state visit and so only the Queen greeted the president and his wife Melania. However even on working trips dignitaries expect to see more members of the royal family than only the Queen. When deciding which royals to include in the meeting, senior courtiers shared concerns about

Strzok was asked “what action” he would take if he found out one of his subordinates was conducting an “extramarital affair.” “It depends,” said Strzok. “If it was against the FBI’s regulation in terms of if it was somebody in their chain of command, above or below them, which is inappropriate or not allowed by regulation, I would

The indictment Friday of 12 Russian military officers for the election hacks against the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign lends a surprising new detail to the 2016 election interference timeline: The Kremlin’s hackers apparently still maintained a foothold in the DNC’s network four months after the Democrats announced that they’d locked the intruders out. Until today, the story of the DNC hack ended promptly on June 14, 2016, when the Democrats went public with the intrusion in the pages of the Washington Post, and Crowdstrike, the security firm hired to respond to the breach, published a detailed technical account. Today’s indictment confirms

The man who co-wrote “The Art of the Deal” said Sunday he believes President Trump’s faculties are diminishing — and that he feels obligated to sound the alarm. “We are in a true emergency,” Tony Schwartz said on CNN Sunday. “And the accelerated rate at which his breakdown or decompensation is occurring is cause for us, and certainly for me, to come on to TV more often, to tweet more often.” Schwartz told CNN’s Brian Stelter that he felt comfortable making that assessment because he had “spent an enormous time with [Trump] over a period of 18 months.”(snip)Stelter pointed out that Schwartz

Anyone who has ever been to a recycling plant is invariably surprised at how dirty and nasty America’s favorite green activity really is. Trucks dump the material on a long conveyor belt, where a few dozen people pick through by hand what is supposed to be recyclable material, but more and more often is just plain old dirty trash. The recyclables used to be worth something more than bragging rights about liberal moral superiority. Plastic bottles, newspapers, and cardboard, were just a few of the favorites you could ship to China by the ton and make a few bucks along the

Americans are encouraged to embrace diversity and be culturally sensitive to those who have flouted our laws and invaded our nation. Meanwhile, illegal aliens arriving in America have no such requirement. Instead, trespassing tribes relocate, and when they do, rather than assimilate, they transfer habits and activities indigenous to the countries from whence they migrated. Thus, Americans suffer from illnesses that are easily traceable to third-world bathroom habits (TWBH) and lack of hygiene in the developing world. It´s not news that illegals work in restaurants as food-handlers. These restaurant workers migrate from

Watching FBI agent Peter Strzok battle with Congress, my initial reaction was pure anger. His repeated, arrogant insistence that he had done nothing wrong despite tons of evidence to the contrary convinced me he deserved immediate firing — if not the firing squad. Gradually, though, anger gave way to amazement as Strzok grew increasingly combative and condescending. Given his predicament, the sneering and smirking were stupid, and yet he persisted. Who is this jerk, I wondered, and how in the hell did he get to be a big shot at the FBI? And why are taxpayers still paying for the privilege of

The left-wing terrorist organization that calls itself Antifa is “freaking out” over a proposed law that would enhance penalties for anyone who “injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person” while wearing a disguise or mask. Throughout our country, and for a number of years now — and primarily because the establishment media fantasizes about, promotes, enflames and approves of the violence committed against the right (naturally, HuffPo opposes the unmasking law) — Antifa has been allowed to run rampant, committing countless acts of violence against everyday, peaceful supporters of President Donald Trump.
