Tariq Nasheed Posts Photo Alleging Covington Catholic Students Wore Blackface, Easily Proven Wrong

Published

Anyone who is familiar with the work of black supremacist Tariq Nasheed knows that he is at the forefront of almost every “racist” event in America, crying foul against evil white people everywhere. Nothing has changed with Nasheed in 2019, as he attacked the boys from Covington Catholic High School on Monday afternoon, well after many normal people came to their senses and realized that the students were unfairly smeared by the media stemming from an incident in Washington, D.C. last Friday.

“Here’s a 2015 photo of ‘s fine, upstanding student body clad in blackface at one of their basketball games harassing an opposing Black player,” he Tweeted.

First, Covington Catholic’s school colors are blue and white. It is not uncommon for fans of sporting events to do “blackout” games, where the whole stadium dresses in black. If that were the case, and these were Covington Catholic students at a “blackout” game, then the kids were obviously not dressed in blackface as Nasheed claimed.

Most importantly, though, the player whom Nasheed says is being “harassed” (some call this cheering) is wearing a “Clark County” jersey. There is a Clark County, Kentucky, but after looking up the records on MaxPreps, which keeps track of these sorts of things, Covington County did not compete against a team from Clark County, home or away, in either the 2014-2015 season or the 2015-2016 season.

Covington did play Clark County’s High School named George Rogers in their season opener of the 2011-2012 season, but as already explained it was simply a “black out” that had everything to do with school spirit and nothing with race.

The lengths to which the political left will go to smear innocent children is beyond comprehension.

City of Denver Unanimously Votes to Rename Columbus Park “La Raza Park”

There might come a time when nothing in the US is named after Christopher Columbus.

Published

on

The Denver City Council unanimously voted to rename Columbus Park last week Monday, and now it will be named “La Raza Park.”

“La raza” is Spanish for “the race,” which has connotations with Latino identity politics. A Denver Post article tells us that the phrase “viva la raza” (long live the race) was the “rallying cry of the Chicano movement in the 1960s and ’70s.” The Chicano Movement encouraged Mexican ethnic and cultural solidarity with a particular emphasis on their indigenous heritage. The movement, however, rejected assimilation and thus the term “Mexican-American,” essentially branding themselves as the Hispanic version of the Black Power movement.

Councilwoman Amanda Sandoval claims that the unanimous vote was an act of officially naming a park that has “always” been unofficially called by its new name. “La raza is a word of unity and about celebrating community,” she said without a hint of irony.

The reason for officially renaming the park is about what you’d expect, namely because Christopher Columbus is irredeemably associated with colonialism and genocide and is thus not fit to be honored in any way, shape, or form.

Arturo Gonzalez, a retired professor, said that “Mexican Chicanos and Indigenous peoples have suffered genocide over the last 500 years. We live with that trauma. We continue to live with that trauma.”

Renaming parks, buildings, and schools that were previously named after so-called “problematic” or “white supremacist” historical figures is nothing new, of course, but the practice has accelerated over the past several months due to the hysteria following the George Floyd riots.

Big League Politics has covered many instances of this phenomenon. One of the most recent instances included a San Francisco school district renaming Abraham Lincoln High School because black lives apparently “didn’t matter” to him:
