Obama Commits Microaggression against Mexican-Americans and Native Americans

Following on the heels of an infamous microaggression committed recently by Hillary Clinton against blacks, Barack Obama committed what could be described as a microaggression against Mexicans and Mexican-Americans, when he spontaneously broke into a song that celebrates the “frontiersman” Davy Crockett. (Trigger warning: Listen above to Obama praise white oppressor Davy Crockett in song.)

Incarceration of Adult Males Caused Baltimore Riots?

Consider this CNN article about the Baltimore neighborhood that was the scene of recent riots (h/t Zenway). The writer says, about an older man–a blue-collar worker–who once lived in the neighborhood:

He sat like a sentry, watching not just the games but the neighborhood as well.

I knew Mr. Shields’ routine because I was his neighbor. I grew up in the West Baltimore community that was rocked this week by protests over the death of a young black man in police custody.

It’s surreal to see your old neighborhood go up in flames as commentators try to explain the rage with various complex racial and legal theories. But when I returned to my home this week, the rage made sense to me. There were no more Mr. Shields — the older black men were gone.

I asked 28-year-old Zachary Lewis about the absence of older men. …

“There ain’t no more ‘Old Heads’ anymore, where you been? They got big numbers or they in pine boxes.” In street syntax, that meant long prison sentences or death.

As I walked through my old streets, it was filled with nothing but black young women, children and teenage boys. It was as if an alien spaceship had come in the night and spirited all the older black men away.

Maya Angelou’s Words?

Beginning as early as 2001, according to my research, perhaps even before, this quote by writer/illustrator Joan Walsh Anglund began to be falsely attributed to Maya Angelou:

A bird doesn’t sing because he has an answer–he sings because he has a song.

Barack Obama himself famously and falsely attributed Ms. Anglund’s words to Maya Angelou.

A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.

The above quote was posted on Maya Angelou’s facebook page without attribution on November 23, 2013. That same year, she was interviewed and she repeated the quote, without attribution, as if those were her own words. An op-ed in the New York Times was too cute by half to claim that this was not a case of plagiarism:

… it doesn’t seem that Ms. Angelou, who died last year, claimed the words as her own.

“It doesn’t seem?” Well, I beg to differ. Things are not always as some would wish them to seem to be.

Free Speech Rights for Some, but Not All?

These are Americans exercising their right to free speech, according to progressives and the media:

Outrage In Missouri Town After Police Shooting Of 18-Yr-Old Man

The Ferguson and the St. Louis County police departments, the MO Highway Patrol, the MO governor, virtually all the authorities in MO, as well as Barack Obama and Eric Holder, went out of their way to call these mobs “peaceful protesters” and to school law enforcement officers to take care not to infringe upon the First Amendment rights of these “protesters.”
