    James Pilcher of the Cincinnati Enquirer is reporting that umpire Angel Hernandez has filed a discrimination lawsuit against Major League Baseball. He also claims that there is racial discrimination in baseballís promotion and post-season assignment policies. Hernandez claims that, despite being rated highly in evaluations, he has been passed over to work the World Series. According to Pilcher, Hernandez hasnít worked a World Series since 2005. He was also made a temporary crew chief in 2005 and 2012 but his four applications to become a permanent crew chief were denied. As for racial discrimination, Pilcher notes that there are only...

    There are three things you need to know about modern American politics: (1) the black vote is hugely important to the Democratic Party, but (2) less than half of black voters actually agree with the Democratic Party’s view of government, and among those who do agree a great many are routinely mistreated by the very politicians they vote for; therefore (3) the only practical way to ensure that the vast majority of black voters reliably and enthusiastically turn out for the Democrats is to avoid debating real issues and focus instead on racial politics.Roughly one fourth of Democratic voters are...

    It's not just the stock market that is having trouble these days. In reality, everywhere you look there are just plain wacky things going on that somehow much of the media and political "intelligentsia" have failed to report or acknowledge. Back in April, this column, based on analysis of several readily available financial surveys, suggested that a major correction in our markets was likely, not in a matter of years, but in just months. Bam. It happened. The most troubling aspects are not the issues or problems that require a crystal ball and a lot of luck. More concerning is...

    The self-righteous indignation of liberals was on full display last night, as the Grand Jury announced their decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson over the death of Michael Brown. Strangely absent was a sense of concern over the violence, destruction, and social devolution that erupted in St Louis. Instead, as expected, there was a profoundly misplaced anger over the decision of a Grand Jury that was presented with facts, eyewitness accounts, and forensic evidence. 1 ¬Ė Ezra KleinEzra Klein is an idiot.

    When we pledge allegiance to the flag, we also pledge allegiance to the Republic for which it stands ó ďone nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.Ē The modern American left has put each of these qualities up for grabs. For example, implementing ďsocial justiceĒ would make it logically impossible to provide justice for all of us as individuals. The left is also unfavorably disposed to the idea of one indivisible nation. The Akaka Bill was a good example. As Gail Heriot and Peter Kirsanow explained, this legislation, which the House passed in 2010, would have enabled...

    Donít you just love classic Disney movies? Animated cinematic adventures that espoused the importance of life values, growing up, and racismÖ Well, thatís what some lefty professor is arguing at Syracuse University. Apparently, the Jungle Book is just chock-full of racism (and not because of ďman-cubísĒ strange desire to remain uncultured). Professor Robert Thompson told Yahoo Movies (umÖ this article was forwarded to me Ė like most people, I donít actually visit Yahoo Movies) that the Jungle Book is racist because of something to do with Louie Armstrong.

    There are many horrific stories to be told about the implosion of Detroit, once the nationís most prosperous city, today its poorest. There is the story of its corrupt public institutions, its feckless leaders, its poisonous racial politics, its practically nonexistent economy, the riots that have led to its thrice being occupied by federal troops. The most horrific story may be that of the death of its children.Detroit has the highest child-mortality rate of any American city, exceeding that of many parts of what we used to call the Third World........ .....Detroit represents nothing less than progressivism in its final...

    Hello fellow 2013 survivors, I've got a lot of irons in the fire, but this one struck me with a sense of urgency and so I banged it out - (don't read anything into that expression). † I'd heard about this latest flap over a gaggle of progressives having a chuckle about Mitt Romney with a black grandson on his knee and I couldn't help but see a bit of absurdity beyond the rather innocuous incident itself. MSNBC has, without thinking (surprise, surprise)-locked themselves into a box and now that it's too late to get out, are discovering they don't...

    Before you tell me that you don't give a rat's tushie about celebrities / entertainers and what they do and all their carrying's on and what not Ė let me agree with you. I don't either...but. What's the but? The but is that in as much as entertainers and celebs stick their noses into politics (usually liberal politics and more specifically, Democrat partisan politics), I occasionally write about them. Still, my interest is even more narrowly focused. It is particularly when one of them runs at the mouth about some sacred cow of utopianism and then shortly after, the world...

    Today we start with a quiz. Two politicians, one black and one white, have a disagreement on an issue. One airs an opinion, and the other responds with a racial insult. What will happen next? A) The politician who used the racial insult will be roundly and widely denounced and forced to resign from office. B) Nothing. The answer is: It depends. It's impossible to determine the correct answer without knowing whether the epithet came from the white politician or the black politician. In a society that treats racism, correctly, as a grave offense, it shouldn't really matter. But apparently...

    Are women equal to men? Are Jews equal to gentiles? Are blacks equal to Italians, Irish, Polish and other white people? The answer is probably a big fat no, and the pretense or assumption that we are equal -- or should be equal -- is foolhardy and creates mischief. Let's look at it. Male geniuses outnumber female geniuses 7-to-1. Female intelligence is packed much closer to the middle of the bell curve, whereas men's intelligence has far greater variability. That means that though there are many more male geniuses, there are also many more male idiots. The latter might partially...

    When the House voted last Thursday to find Attorney General Eric Holder in criminal contempt of Congress, members of the Congressional Black Caucus walked out. Why is the Black Caucus trying to make this about race? Itís about Holderís refusal to turn over Justice Department documents requested by the House Oversight and Government Committee in its investigation of the ďFast and FuriousĒ operation. ďFast and FuriousĒ was a ďgun-walkingĒ operation conducted by the Justice Departmentís Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF). ATF would allow known smugglers to purchase arms from dealers in Arizona with the idea that they would...

    Texas Gov. Rick Perryís clashes with conservative activists are nothing new: A bitter battle over racial preferences and liberal judges has raged in the tight-knit world of Lone Star politics since 2001. In the days following George W. Bushís election to the presidency, the newly minted Gov. Perry had a chance to prove his mettle by nominating justices to fill two Texas Supreme Court vacancies. Following Ronald Reaganís unsuccessful 1987 nomination of Robert Bork to the U.S. Supreme Court, conservative activists had been awakened to a new kind of politics ó the politics of judicial nominations ó and Perryís selection...

    President Obamaís campaign is developing an aggressive new program to expand support from ethnic minority groups and other traditional Democratic voters as his team studies an increasingly narrow path to victory in next yearís reelection effort. The program, called ďOperation Vote,Ē underscores how the tide has turned for Obama, whose 2008 brand was built on calls to unite ďred and blue America.Ē Then, he presented himself as a politician who could transcend traditional partisan divisions, and many white centrists were drawn to the coalition that helped elect the countryís first black president. Today, the political realities of a sputtering economy,...

    (CNSNews.com) Ė At a House hearing on immigration on Tuesday, Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) said the debate about the estimated 14 million illegal aliens in the United States is dividing the black and Latino communities. But one witness at the hearing said Mexican-Americans have nothing in common with people who have broken the law by being in the country illegally. ďThe notion that is underneath the surface of pitting African-American workers against Hispanic workers against immigrants is so abhorrent and repulsive to me that I want to get it on the table right now,Ē said Conyers, ranking member on the...

    Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour recently put his foot in his mouth as all potential presidential candidates do from time to time. His gaffe, which shows up in a Weekly Standard feature article, consisted of two parts. The first part of the goof was concerning racial segregation where Barbour says ďI just don't remember it being that badĒ. The author of the story, Andrew Ferguson, gave his take on Barbourís remark: "I don't think that he meant segregation wasn't that bad. I think he meant that it didn't roil the town the way some people might think it did." He added:...
