Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, who was accused by a United Airlines passenger of bumping her from a first-class seat, said in a Twitter screed on Tuesday that she believes the incident is all about race. “Since this was not any fault of mine, the way the individual continued to act appeared to be, upon reflection, because I was an African American woman, seemingly an easy target along with the African American flight attendant who was very, very nice,” the Texas Democrat wrote in a post. “This saddens me, especially at this time of year given all of the things we have
Comments: "The wolf came in, I got my cards, we sat down for a game. I cut my deck to the queen of spades, but the cards were all the same." Grateful Dead, "Dire Wolf"
FTA: "I am kind enough to simply say sorry,” Jackson Lee continued" [´cept she just knows that this is all due to her being Black so she refused]" "Sorry" is an insult. "I am sorry" would have been the polite thing to say. But Lee wouldn´t even say "Sorry". Lee has no doubt been throwing her considerable weight (figuratively and literally speaking) around for many years. Why do people keep sending such self-important self-aggrandizing worthless people to represent them in Congress. I wonder what she has accomplished for "her people" during her years in Congress? If she is like most CBC members, probably nothing. Except to foment anger and resentment and division and working to tear the social cohesion of our country to shreds.
most likely a decedent of slavery, eh, sheila? well you know lady, those slaves paid and paved the way for you. they paid the price for you to have come as far as you have. don´t blame whites so much. none of us own slaves. instead of playing your dammed race card, give a little thanks to your ancestors and then thank the usa for the privilege of living in the best country on earth. the problem is your people don´t want to get along. you are not nor do you deserve any more respect or privilege than a white, a hispanic, an asian, etc. you black folks have burdened yourselves with hate, stubbornness, refusing and encouraging your sons and daughters to disobey the law. you black folks have the most single moms (with a lot of babies with and daddies) i feel the slightest bit of my taxes go to support your lazy sons and daughters and feed your illegitimate fatherless babies. and then they grow up all the while being taught to hate white people and "the man". There is no hope for you as a people unless you assimilate with the rest of americans and thank God your ancestors suffered the birth pains to allow you to be who you are. I´m sure they would be proud of your accomplishments. learn the art of graciousness and use it!! Now get your fat arse out of the ladies seat.
That´s how trash got through school and the entitlement greed has never stopped. Jackson Lee mirrors the trash that votes her into office. There is no country on this planet, not even Africa, where "African Americans" are liked!

Since it was was a white person who gave up their seat to accommodate Sheila, it appears to me, upon reflection, because Sheila is an African American woman who is arrogant and believes, her skin color entitles her to special treatment especially atthe expense of white people.
Martin Luther King dreamed of the day when people would be judged not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. Sheila was not judged by the color of her skin but but by the rotten content of her character.
The fact she cannot get beyond race and sees everything as a racial issue is a sure sign she is rotten to the core.
What is totally bizarre. Black politicians, celebs, athletes, etc., constantly invoke the race card every single time there appears to be some slight to themselves or black male youths (usually criminals and Black Lies Matter groups)and any opportunity to bash white people. Well,don´t they understand that every time they invoke the race card real (rare) or imagined (usually the case) it only perpetuates the stereotypes that responsible blacks are trying to escape from.
Blacks who make it on their own and there are plenty are unfortunately labeled as affirmative action recipients, etc., even though they never garnered benefits from AA.
No surprise as that piece of work plays the race card at every turn. The reason she keeps doing that is that she has become used to then seeing a cloud of dust every time she plays the race card, as the wimpy Republicans run to hide under their mattresses. If instead they would tell her to drop dead that might get her attention and cause her to become completely unhinged, or she might stop with her race card gig.
Genuflection autonomonata- Race Card! It´s like Pavlov´s dogs- ring a bell,they salivate. Any trouble in a black racist´s life- "It´s ´cause of the whities is being racists!" Can´t read- Whitey is racist! Black killing blacks - whitey is racist! Can´t pay the mortgage for buying crack- Whitey is racist! Hillary Clinton loses two presidential elections- Whitey is racist!
This is what happens when an undomesticated creature from the wild kingdom is allowed to live amongst the civil society. The stench and the stain they leave behind to mark their territory is their trademark.
Surprise, surprise, surprise. Isn´t this the Congresswoman who demands a limo pickup to get to work? She sho do be Miz High an Mighty. Gives honorable blacks a bad name. UA keeps shooting itself in the foot. What´s up with that? So glad I don´t have to fly commercial these days!
As I understand it the United Airlines main office is in her district. I don´t think the bumped passenger was aware of ho took her seat until she went to the front of the plane. SJL refers to herself as "Queen". I´ve come to expect no less from here and her ilk.
The Congresswoman called the woman a racist in the national press. Sue her for slander! Also, this was an unlawful taking (without due process) from a US Citizen solely for the purpose to provide it to a Federal Representative. Sue her for violating her constitutional rights.
I´ve read where Lee is now a millionaire thanks to her working the congressional pay to play racket. If she´s so concerned about her race, why doesn´t she donate those millions to her adoring voters? Show you care Lee!
Deadly bacteria could be lurking in your dishwasher, new research reveals. The kitchen staple can contain everything from E.coli, which causes life-threatening food poisoning, to other pathogens linked to infections of the urinary tract, skin and inner heart lining, a Slovenian study found. Although usually harmless, these bacteria can be fatal in people with reduced immune systems, such as those undergoing chemotherapy or organ transplants. Bacteria and fungi are thought to enter dishwashers via the tap water that supplies them, as well as through contaminated food, the research adds. Researchers recommend people reduce their risk of infection by allowing
President Trump is employing techniques “popularized by Joseph Stalin” to demonize the press and his approach could do great harm to the nation in the long run, Sen. Jeff Flake said Sunday. In an appearance on ABC’s “This Week,” the retiring Arizona Republican and outspoken critic of the president said he’s deeply troubled by how Mr. Trump attacks the media. “You can talk about crowd size, and this is pretty innocuous if there’s a falsehood. But when you reflexively refer to the press as the ‘enemy of the people’ or ‘fake news,’ that has real damage,” Mr. Flake said. “It
The former mayor and councilman of Lawrence Township has admitted to stealing thousands of dollars for unapproved salary increases while serving as the executive director of Asbury Park Housing Authority. Mark Holmes, 56, pleaded guilty to second-degree theft by unlawful taking and faces five years in state prison when he appears for sentencing before Monmouth County Superior Court Judge John Tassini on April 6, Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher Gramiccioni announced in a press release Wednesday.

As many people across the country recognized Law Enforcement Appreciation Day Tuesday, convicted spy Chelsea Manning took to Twitter to blast the men and women in blue. “F–k the police,” Manning tweeted out on Tuesday, followed by “#DisarmThePolice #WeGotThis.” Manning doubled down on her position, sending out a series of tweets with seemingly unsourced stats. Manning, who was known as Bradley Manning before transitioning in prison after her arrest in 2010, was convicted in 2013 of 20 counts, including Espionage Act violations, theft and computer fraud. (Snip) In his final days in office, President Barack Obama granted Manning clemency,
A New York Democratic assemblywoman was indicted Tuesday for allegedly defrauding government agencies out of tens of thousands of dollars, including the agency in charge of Hurricane Sandy relief. The Department of Justice announced that Pamela Harris, a New York state assemblywoman, was charged with wire fraud, making false statements, bankruptcy fraud, witness tampering and obstructing justice. The indictment also claims that when Harris learned that law enforcement was investigating her in 2017, she pushed witnesses to lie for her to FBI agents conducting the investigation. (Snip) According to the New York Daily News, Harris used the money for vacations, cruise tickets
A deranged attacker sprayed a woman in the face with a caustic substance on Staten Island Monday morning, yelling "Do you have the time now, b----?" police sources said. The 52-year-old victim was walking along Woodrow Road by Carlton Blvd. in Arden Heights, when another woman approached her from behind at about 11:30 a.m. “I didn’t know the person,” said Lizzie Dunn. “She asked me for cigarette and I told her no. “She then asked for money and I told her no and sorry.” (Snip) “She grabbed me from the hood of my coat and sprayed me with something
London – A couple, who met on a dating site and began researching how to make homemade explosives and the deadly poison ricin, were found guilty on Monday of plotting Islamic State-inspired chemical and bomb attacks on Britain. Munir Hassan Mohammed, 37, from Derby in central England, began sharing extremist material within weeks of meeting Londoner Rowaida El-Hassan, 32, who in turn helped him find information on making ricin. “This then rapidly escalated and El-Hassan, a qualified pharmacist, readily passed on her knowledge to Mohammed giving him the technical assistance he needed in preparing for a terrorist attack,” said Detective Chief Inspector
Orlando — Restaurant busboys, in line to earn a little more dough this year as minimum wage hikes hit across the country, are instead losing their jobs as chains look to cut costs. One chain axing jobs is Red Robin, which hopes to save about $8 million this year by eliminating busboys at each of its 570 restaurants, the company said Monday. (Snip) The Colorado-based chain already eliminated so-called expediters — who plate the food in the kitchen — and realized a cost savings of nearly $10 million last year, it said. “We need to do that to address the
Bartlett, Tenn. - It was a movie theater melee. Cell phone video of the brawl was shared thousands of times, and viewed well over 100,000 times on social media. The man who recorded the video, told FOX 13 the fighting stemmed from an argument over a boy. Moments later multiple girl fights broke out.

A prominent donor to the Democratic Party says she is considering withdrawing support for senators who urged their colleague Al Franken to resign after he was accused of sexual misconduct. The donor, Susie Tompkins Buell, has been one of the Democratic Party’s most generous supporters for decades. In particular, she has been a champion of female politicians, including Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Maria Cantwell of Washington. (Snip) “In my gut they moved too fast,” she wrote. Franken “was never given his chance to tell his side of the story.” “For me, this is dangerous and
Washington — The federal farm bill is up for renewal this year at a time when farm incomes are dropping and food stamp demand remains high even while the economy improves, worrying some advocates who see Republicans in the White House and Congress looking widely for ways to cut spending. (Snip) The farm bill distributes about $100 billion a year to agricultural programs in the form of crop insurance, commodity subsidies, rural development and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. That program, more commonly known as food stamps, consumes about 80 percent of farm bill funding; the program’s total recipients in Minnesota
NBC plans to televise any players who refuse to stand for “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the Super Bowl, but there may be nothing to show. It appears that NFL players are no longer taking a knee during the national anthem, namely because none of the teams with still-active protesters has qualified for the postseason. By the end of the regular season, only five teams featured at least one player regularly sitting or kneeling on the sidelines for the anthem: the Seattle Seahawks, the San Francisco 49ers, the Miami Dolphins, the New York Giants and the Oakland Raiders. None of those franchises made the
On Monday’s broadcast of CBS’ “Late Show,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) stated that President Trump can begin to prove he’s not racist or bigoted by supporting the bipartisan immigration compromise. Schumer said Trump’s comments “over and over and over again can be described as nothing but racist and obnoxious. He says he’s not a racist. Well, … I have a challenge for Donald Trump. Okay, actions speak louder than words, if you want to begin, just begin that long road back to proving you’re not a racist, you’re not bigoted, support the bipartisan compromise that three Republicans and
Mitt Romney took a swipe at Donald Trump on Monday, condemning the crude comments the president was said to have made about Haiti and African countries -- calling them “inconsistent (with) America’s history and antithetical to American values” with a reference to Martin Luther King, Jr. The poverty of an aspiring immigrant’s nation of origin is as irrelevant as their race,” Romney tweeted. “The sentiment attributed to POTUS is inconsistent w/America’s history and antithetical to American values. May our memory of Dr. King buoy our hope for unity, greatness, & ‘charity for all.’”
This Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the NAACP wants man-made global warming to be seen as a civil rights issue, arguing King’s vision of a society free of racial injustice can’t be achieved without addressing warming. “We see climate change as a civil rights issue,” Jacqueline Patterson, head of the NAACP’s environmental and climate justice program, said in an online radio spot for the Yale Center for Environmental Connection. Environmental activists have been increasingly framing global warming as a matter of “environmental justice,” since “minority and low-income populations are disproportionately affected by global warming,” Patterson told Yale’s online radio Climate
The most recent attack on the president is designed to throw him off balance during the debate on immigration. Senator Durbin, doing his best Claude Rains imitation, stated, "I cannot believe that, in the history of the White House, in that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday." Durbin was responding to Trump´s alleged comment that Haiti, El Salvador, and certain African countries are "s---holes." Many of the reports omit mention of El Salvador because it does not fit the anti-black allegations. Senator Durbin is not a young man, and he
Ever since Donald Trump entered the political arena, his intelligence has been viciously attacked and his supporters have been labeled as moronic deplorables. In a recent Trump tweet, the president responded to the most recent attack by saying he is a stable genius. The mainstream media never bothered checking evidence of Obama´s intelligence before one historian declared him "the smartest man with the highest IQ ever to be elected to the presidency", even though his academic records were sealed. What these attacks do prove is who the real brains are and who are the dummies: Alan Dershowitz may be for real
This is the shocking moment a massive brawl broke out in a California pizza restaurant over a missing iPhone that turned out to have been in the lost and found the whole time. Police were called to John´s Incredible Pizza Company in Newark´s NewPark Mall on Saturday night after violence erupted. It broke out after a girl missing her phone had approached a group to see if they´d seen it but quickly descended into chaos, with video showing two large groups of people exchanging blows and screaming at each other. Newark police officers had to call in officers from the Fremont Police Department
Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) on Monday announced she plans to boycott President Trump´s State of the Union address to Congress at the end of the month, joining a handful of other Democratic lawmakers who are skipping the annual event. "I´m here on Martin Luther King Jr. Day to say I will not be going to the State of the Union," Jayapal said in a video posted on social media. "I think it is absolutely unacceptable to see the racism and the hatred coming out the White House in a way in which this president is fueling the flames of divisiveness across
TRENTON, N.J. — Days before his inauguration as New Jersey’s 56th governor, Phil Murphy had Hollywood on his mind. The 60-year old Democrat had just read a headline about reshoots on “All the Money in the World,” which had been done in a hurry to remove disgraced actor Kevin Spacey from the movie. (Snip) Murphy is ready to end his obscurity. On Tuesday, when he is sworn in, New Jersey will become one of just eight states where Democrats run every branch of government. If Murphy has his way, New Jersey will become a proving ground for every liberal policy
From his perch in the Ohio governor’s mansion, Republican John Kasich is keeping a keen eye on President Trump’s every move and showing a willingness — some say eagerness — to hurl rotten tomatoes toward the leader of his party when he gets upset with the act.He has become a go-to anti-Trump source for the media and often doesn’t even wait for the press to call. Instead, he leaps in to pile on after presidential missteps.While insisting he wants Mr. Trump to succeed, Mr. Kasich has pointedly refused to rule out mounting a primary challenge against the president in 2020.
Florida Rep. Frederica Wilson added her name to a growing list of Democratic lawmakers who say they are fed up with President Trump and will boycott his State of the Union address at the end of the month. (snip) “For the first time since I began serving in the U.S. House of Representatives, I will not be attending the president’s State of the Union address,” Wilson said in a statement late Sunday. “I have no doubts that instead of delivering a message of inclusivity and an agenda that benefits all Americans, President Trump’s address will be full of innuendo, empty
Why would my 22-year-old brother be calling so early on a Saturday morning? I’d ignored the first call. But the second time the phone rang, I picked it up. He was panicking, his voice trembling uncharacteristically: He’d just received the emergency alert warning of a ballistic missile that was heading for Hawaii, where I’m from, and where he and my family still live. “THIS IS NOT A DRILL,” the alert read. My brother was alone, and had no idea what to do or where to go. And he wouldn’t have had much time to figure out a game plan—some estimates
