Antisemitism in America: Undeniable, Dangerous & On The Rise

America is rapidly becoming a more and more dangerous place for Jews. With recent attacks, rallies, and complacency from the White House, it’s more clear than ever just how extreme the hatred towards Jewish people has become. White and Christian supremacy hate groups function on the belief that Christians and whites are above all others. According to the KKK website, “Non-whites who reside in America should be expected to conduct themselves according to Christian principles

Blackface is Still Alive and Well: Just Ask OU Tri-Delta

Just as we hoped blackface would be left behind in 2018, a video of a white University of Oklahoma sorority student surfaced on Twitter.

There’s No Such Thing as “Not Black Enough”

In such a racially polarized environment, you’d think that people of the same color are more likely to stick together as a people. It’s obvious to recognize that this just isn’t true. In America, and other parts of the world, Black people take part in a society that doesn’t want much to do with them. We’ve faced centuries of discrimination and decades of segregation. We’ve been subject to all types of tortures and hardships. We’ve

How Racial Targeting Prevents Black People From Living Their Lives

It’s been an interesting year for African Americans who are simply trying mind to their business. Instead of coming out into the world to live their lives, they’re being subtly pushed away by their white counterparts.
