Topic: Racial Prejudice

Ted Cruz Tx
Cruz claims the single biggest lie in politics is that Republicans are the party of the rich. But is it really the truth?
The data show wealthy Americans are not universally Republican, though they tend to lean and vote that way. Cruz never really explains why he believes this is the “biggest lie.” Instead, he attacks President Obama for presiding over an increase in income inequality and says that the president’s policies, such as the health-care law, have negatively affected “young people, Hispanics, African Americans, single moms.
Alicia Menendez HuffPost Live
"A white family is likely to have about six times as much wealth than a black or Hispanic family coming out of the recession."
A study from the Urban Institute supports her statistic. Other research shows an even wider gap, further proving her point that race is a factor in U.S. wealth.
Matt Drudge Conservative Talk Show
Drudge Report says embattled "Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald "Sterling is a Democrat."
County records show that he is a registered Republican and has been for many years. His donations to Democrats took place two decades ago and were modest even by the standards of that time.
Rush Limbaugh
Limbaugh: 'Some of the wealthiest Americans are African-American now'
Of the top 400 wealthiest Americans, exactly one is African-American, Oprah Winfrey -- that’s 1/4 of one percent. Also, no other African-American is really all that close to breaking into the Top 400.
Ferguson Officer Photo
Graphic image claims to depict Ferguson, Missouri police officer, Darren Wilson, gravely injured following an altercation with shooting victim Mike Brown.
This photo, which was attached to the email, is not of allegedly battered Officer Darren Wilson, but rather of now-deceased motocross rider Jim McNeil who was killed in an accident in 2011.
Rudy Giuliani, NY R
"The conviction rate is almost exactly the same" for whites and blacks who commit murder.
There was no statistical evidence to support Giuliani’s claim,and even if there was statistical evidence it would have been cherry-picking data.
Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y.
Peter King says there are 'No Elements of Racism' in Eric Garner case. He said this wouldn't have happened if he were not obese, diabetic and asthmatic.
Garner may not have died if he had not been obese, but most agree that it is unlikely this would not have happened to a white man. Rep. King only wishes race was not involved.
Russell Moore
After Ferguson and Eric Garner decision, white Christians are taking a stand
There is nothing that is clearer in the New Testament than the fact that the gospel breaks down the dividing walls that we have between one another.
Charles Angeletti
Professor makes students recite 'Anti-American' pledge of allegiance
Angeletti's strong political statement against Christian and University values by having students pledge allegiance to a racist, homophobic, sexist America that is in the name of Jesus, that hates Communists and women who want to get abortions.
Chain Email
Says a man in Ferguson, Mo., was photographed holding a sign that said, "No mother should have to fear for her son's life every time he robs a store."

Rudy Giuliani Ny R
Giuliani: Says President Barack Obama has said "that everybody should hate the police."
The truth is Obama has continuously encouraged working with police to find solutions and has also repeatedly emphasized the importance of law enforcement and the fact that police officers have a dangerous job.
Newt Gingrich
Says President Barack Obama got "a pass" over controversial remarks by Rev. Jeremiah Wright, while a 12-year-old speech by House Majority Whip Steve Scalise has blown up into a national story.
The truth is less than a week after the ABC News broadcast reported the Wright-Obama connection in 2008, the story littered print and TV media. Meanwhile, a poll found that 85 percent of Americans had at least some knowledge of the matter.
Stop Discrimination
Department Of Justice investigation finds Ferguson police routinely discriminate.
The city relies heavily on ticketing practices to generate revenue for the city. Between 2011 and 2013, African-Americans made up 95 percent of those charged with improper “manner of walking in roadway,” 94 percent of those charged with “failure to comply,” and 92 percent of those charged with disturbance of the peace. Blacks account for just 67 percent of the city's population.
Lou Dobbs Fox Pundit
Because of President Barack Obama’s failure to "push job creation," the black unemployment rate in Ferguson, Mo., is three times higher than the white unemployment rate.
First and foremost, Dobbs’ numbers are off. The most recent and best available statistics say the black unemployment rate is 1.9 times higher than the white unemployment rate in Ferguson (16 percent to 8.5 percent). Second, that has little to do with Obama.
Megyn Kelly Fox News
Fox News says racist or offensive emails are "normal" in businesses in America.

She reviewed the outrageous racist emails circulated among Ferguson officers on the job, then showed clips of Fox News' Megyn Kelly saying such offensive emails were common.
Rudy Giuliani Ny R
Giuliani says, Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson Should Be 'Commended' For Shooting Michael Brown.
Giuliani attacks the Justice Department's scathing report of racial bias within the Ferguson Police Department, claiming that there was little evidence to prove racism within the department. On the contrary, most people can see plenty of evidence in the report.

Mike Huckabee
Mike Huckabee mocks transgender people saying he wished he could have pretended to be transgender in high school “when it came time to take showers in PE.”
Most people feel it is Christian to treat others with respect and love, even if you don't understand or agree with them.  These sentiments by former governor Mike Huckabee, a favorite of Christian conservatives, show total disrespect and ignorance, as well as inappropriate desires.
Steve Doocy Fox And Friends
Fox, Steve Doocy claims the Charleston shooting is an attack on faith, not race—calls for pastors to arm themselves.
Charleston Mayor Joe Riley said, "Hate is the only reason someone would walk into a church and shoot people who were praying."  But Fox News, Doocy says that the murder of nine people at the historic Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina is really an attack on faith. The gunman allegedly told the victims before the shooting, "You rape our women and you're taking over our country. And you have to go."
Hillary Clinton
American schools are "more segregated than they were in the 1960s."
The United States has taken two steps forward and one step back, but hasn’t quite reverted to pre-Civil Rights levels of segregation. Hillary has a strong point that the country has fallen back from the high levels of diversity that existed from the 1970s to the early 1990s.
Did Abraham Lincoln plan to send ex-slaves to Central America after the Civil War?
 Lincoln did not envision forced deportations of ex-slaves. Voluntary colonization was effectively dead by the time the Emancipation Proclamation was issued on Jan. 1, 1863 -- more than two years before Lincoln’s assassination.
Donald Trump
"The Mexican government forces many bad people into our country."
There is no evidence of any Mexican policy that pushes people out of Mexico and into the United States. As it has been the case for decades, a combination of economic and family factors accounts for most of the migration from Mexico to the United States.
Ben Carson GOP Candidate
GOP Candidate, and neurosurgeon, Ben Carson, got most Google hits on these points in the debate.
"There is no such thing as a politically correct war."  "The skin doesn't make someone who they are."
John Oliver
Oliver calls on federal government to end LGBT discrimination
The Supreme Court’s ruling on gay marriage was a historic milestone, but it didn’t put an end to discrimination against same-sex couples. On HBO’s “Last Week Tonight” Sunday, John Oliver called on the federal government to extend basic civil rights protections to the LGBT community because, as he put it, “same-sex couples can get married and return to work only to find they’ve lost their jobs or housing because of it."

Bernie Sanders Vt Senate
Saunders says, "African Americans are twice as likely to be arrested and almost four times as likely to experience the use of force during encounters with the police."
A criminologist’s analysis of the 2013 data does show that blacks are twice as likely to be arrested as whites.  Blacks are about three times as likely to experience force during encounters with police.
Ben Carson Gop Candidate
Birth control pioneer Margaret Sanger "believed that people like me should be eliminated."
While Sanger indeed supported the eugenics movement, substantial evidence shows that she was not racist and in fact worked closely with black leaders and health care professionals.
John Henson Nba Milwaukee Bucks
Milwaukee Bucks' John Henson was a victim of racial profiling at jewelry store.
Henson was humiliated when he went to Schwanke-Kasten Jewelers in Whitefish Bay, Wisc. to purchase a watch. The staff saw him coming, locked the doors and hid in the back. Police officers questioned him and ran his plates.  The only reason for the drama was his race.
Lawrence Lessing, D
Larry Lessig: "Black Lives Matter" movement is a response to tyrannical "Taxation Through Citation" system
Political activist, Harvard law prof. and Democratic Presidential candidate said that America's "fundamental inequality" disempowers people, and "life is not respected, so you are actually risking your life to be a black person driving in certain areas."
Income Inequity
Income inequality is a religious test. We must reclaim the Heart of our Humanity.
Jim Wallis, who spoke to the Parliament of the World's Religions said, if you believe that every human being regardless of religion or nationality, is made in the image of God, is a child of God, and if you believe in loving your neighbor then income inequality is a spiritual issue, a moral issue, and a religious test of our belief.  We can address inequality through human dignity, stewardship, and the common good.
Donald Trump
Trump claims crime statistics show blacks kill 81 percent of white homicide victims.
A day after a black activist was kicked and punched by voters at a Donald Trump rally in Alabama, Trump tweeted an image packed with racially loaded with fictitious murder statistics.  The stats show that 82% of whites are killed by other whites -Not 16% as Trump stated; and 15% of whites are killed by blacks- not the 82% Trump fabricated.
