Mississippi Bush's ruthless ICE conducts the largest workplace immigration raid in U.S. history, and what do fellow workers do? Snitch and clap. The state of Mississippi has a long, dark history, and it seems its darker-skinned residents can still expect the same.

Watch out for Spring Break, Democrats In the Democratic presidential primaries, everyone's obsessing over Ohio, Texas, and the superdelegates - more or less following Clinton's own spin. But one of the most problematic and possibly decisive features of the electoral calendar has received little comment.

Spin squared Us poor ignorant voters aren't allowed to decide who we like by the old-fashioned method of voting any more. Instead, the media tell us who we're GOING to vote for, enabling them to choose for us.

Ron Paul's History of Virulent Racism (part 1) 15 years ago, Ron Paul's newsletter said, "Our country is being destroyed by a group of actual and potential terrorists - and they can be identified by the color of their skin."
