    In no particular order, I've created this thread to post stories about the new era of racial harmony we are now living in after the election of our 1st "black" president.

    A man has been convicted in San Diego of making racially charged comments on the Internet during the U.S. presidential campaign about killing Barack Obama.

    Walter Bagdasarian of La Mesa posted the messages in October. Prosecutors say one on a Yahoo Finance board read, “He will have a 50 cal in the head soon.” Authorities say they found a .50-caliber rifle in his home.

    U.S. District Judge Marilyn Huff reached the verdict only an hour after the trial started Tuesday. No witnesses were presented.

    An attorney for the 47-year-old defendant said his client was drunk when he posted the comments. Bagdasarian faces up to five years in prison when he is sentenced Oct. 26.

    He is free on $100,000 bail.

    Racial threat puts Ohio college on alert, on edge

    NELSONVILLE, Ohio (AP) - An attacker could find many places to hide at Hocking College, a campus carved into a forest in the Appalachian foothills. And with the threat of a mass killing looming over black students at the community college, Allen Edwards is steering clear of the trees.

    "I don't feel too safe walking by the woods," said Edwards, a 19-year-old black student from Canton. "There's woods everywhere. And somebody could be out in them, and I don't know."

    The FBI is investigating a threat scrawled last week on a bathroom wall warning that black students would be killed Feb. 2. It bore the trademarks of just another casual—though chilling—threat of violence on a college campus, but students here aren't taking any chances.

    At least two black students have withdrawn permanently from school out of fear for their safety, and another dozen have moved out of the dorm where the threat was found, officials at the two-year technical college said. Some students seem unperturbed, but others say the threat has brought simmering racial tensions to the surface.

    The school confirmed Tuesday that the threat said black students would be killed Feb. 2. At least one subsequent note reading "kill the n------" was reported.

    Hocking covers hundreds of densely treed acres in the Wayne National Forest about 60 miles southeast of Columbus. The campus overwhelms Nelsonville, an economically depressed rural town plagued with heroin addiction and unemployment. About 400 of the school's 6,300 students are black, many of whom are foreign exchange students from the Caribbean.

    The college has provided temporary housing for students who are too scared to stay in Hocking Heights, the dorm where the threats were found. And for those wary of venturing outside until after Feb. 2, teachers are making allowances for missed classwork.

    Teachers in trouble after honoring O.J. Simpson, Dennis Rodman and RuPaul for Black H

    Three Los Angeles elementary school teachers accused of giving children portraits of O.J. Simpson, Dennis Rodman and RuPaul to carry in a Black History Month parade have been removed from their classrooms, a school district spokeswoman said Wednesday.

    Children from other classes at the school displayed photos of more appropriate black role models, such as Nelson Mandela, Harriet Tubman and President Obama, Los Angeles Unified School District spokeswoman Gayle Pollard-Terry said.

    The incident occurred Friday at Wadsworth Avenue Elementary School in South Los Angeles, where the student body is more than 90 percent Latino.

    District Superintendent Ramon Cortines placed the teachers - all white men who teach first, second and fourth grades - on administrative leave on Tuesday while an investigation is conducted, Pollard-Terry said.

    "The superintendent will not let anyone make a mockery out of Black History Month," she said.

    The issue was brought to district officials' attention by the Los Angeles chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People after the organization received a complaint early Monday, chapter President Leon Jenkins said.

    Jenkins said he felt the teachers acted in concert to mock black heroes and children's innocence.

    "These are not the people we want our young people to emulate or believe these people represent the best of the African-American community," Jenkins said. "It's hard for the NAACP to believe this was a mistake."

    BUSINESSMAN GETS INTO AN ARGUMENT WITH BLACK WOMAN AT A BAR . . . SO HE CALLS HER THE

    December 12, 2009. MediaTakeOut.com learned that a 37 year old Colorado man named Dustin Meadows, pictured above, is being charged with a racist attack on a Black woman.

    Here’s what went down, Dustin and the victim were both on the dance floor at a Colorado bar when Dustin accidentally bumped into her, spilling his beer all over her. The lady turned to him and said, “What, no apology?” And that’s when Dustin SPAZZED OUT!!

    According to police, he started cursing her out, calling her all kinds of B words and N words. But that wasn’t it. He then reportedly grabbed the lady by her hair, two handfuls, and dragged her out of the bar and onto the street.

    Bar patrons immediately called police. By the time they arrived at the scene, they found the victim sitting on the street with most of the hair ripped out of the right side of her head. The police report noted, “(The victim) had both of her hands full of her hair, and it was apparent that the whole right side of her head was missing hair.” See pics below.

    The racist idiot was charged with 5 counts, a felony bias-motivated crime for assault and four misdemeanors regarding harassment and assault. Dustin was released on a $2,500 bond.

    U.S. unemployment rate for blacks projected to hit 25-year high

    Unemployment for African Americans is projected to reach a 25-year high this year, according to a study released Thursday by an economic think tank, with the national rate soaring to 17.2 percent and the rates in five states exceeding 20 percent.

    Blacks as well as Latinos were far behind whites in employment levels even when the economy was booming. But throughout the recession, the unemployment rate has grown much faster for African Americans and Latinos than for whites, according to the study by the Economic Policy Institute. Moreover, the unemployment gap between men and women has reached a record high -- with men far outpacing women in joblessness.

    The national trend is playing out in the Washington area, even though jobless levels are lower here.

    In the District, researchers say, the unemployment rate during the third quarter of this year is expected to reach 6.1 percent for whites and 18.9 percent for blacks. Unemployment in Maryland is forecast to reach 6.1 percent for whites and 11.3 percent for blacks. And in Virginia, 6.3 percent of whites are projected to be out of work, compared with 13 percent of blacks.

    The rate for Latinos in Maryland is expected to reach 7.6 percent. Researchers did not include data on Hispanics in the District and Virginia because the samples were too small.

    Blacks, Hispanics and men have suffered the most mainly because they have been disproportionately employed in sectors hardest hit in the recession -- manufacturing and construction. For instance, the unemployment rate for blacks is expected to reach 27 percent in Michigan, which has been shedding auto industry jobs. Other states with jobless rates above 20 percent for blacks are Alabama, Illinois, Ohio and South Carolina.

    The rate for Hispanics is projected to reach 22.2 percent in Nevada, which has experienced a dramatic slowdown in construction.

    The results demonstrate that the Obama administration needs to do more to target groups with high unemployment rates, experts say. The Congressional Black Caucus wants the government to create training programs and jobs in low-income communities with the highest unemployment rates.

    Obviously from your posts there is no such thing as "the new era of racial harmony" and in fact the recent racial incidents will escalate as capitalism is in crisis and Obama the frontman for Wall St. will just serve as a target to throw the blame at for the meltdown of the imperial economy.

    "Obama is the front-man for Wall St. will serve as a great target to throw the blame at for the meltdown of the imperial economy."
