    Less than a few prominent and influential organizations have been working very diligently to advance their power of persuasion. Most notable are SPLC (Southern Poverty Law Center) and RWW (RightWingWatch). Sure, they expose some legitimate hate groups, but lately it's been difficult to separate the haters from the baiters. Nobody would argue that there are many groups that must rightly be considered legitimate threats to society in our day (i.e. Westboro Baptists, Nazi Skinheads ). But what are we to make of the growing tendency to falsely accuse and mischaracterize those who are simply offering factual, rational and justifiable concerns...

    The offices of the Atlanta Braves have been flooded with racist letters, emails, and phone calls attacking Hall of Famer Hank Aaron after his interview comparing the way Republicans treat President Barack Obama to the Ku Klux Klan. USA Today writer Bob Nightengale said the "sheer racism" of the attack against Aaron was similar to the racist onslaught that the African-American star faced in 1974 when he broke Babe Ruth's home-run record. Nightengale noted that the new hate mail messages came as baseball was celebrating Jackie Robinson Day, April 15, on Tuesday. One bigoted writer named Edward wrote an email...

    So "Racism" once more stalks among us! The Obama administration and its congressional minions are in full-court press style on the topic. The country's president and chief magistrate asserted the other day at a political rally put on by, of all racial demagogues, Al Sharpton that poor people and black people find it harder than ever to vote. Along came Atty. Gen. Eric Holder with his own tale of racial woe. A Republican-dominated House committee had roughed him up, he thought. "What attorney general," he asked the same political gathering, "has ever had to deal with that kind of...
  • A Different Take On Jackie Robinson

    Yesterday wasn’t just tax day, it was the 67th anniversary of Jackie Robinson breaking the baseball color barrier by playing for the Brooklyn Dodgers. For those games not washed away by rain or snow, teams wore #42 jerseys in his honor. ESPN, as usual, used the anniversary to lament the dwindling number of black baseball players. The number of blacks playing major league baseball has gotten extremely low in recent years. It goes right along with a massive decrease in the number of black kids playing baseball and going to baseball games. In many ways the decrease in black interest...

The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and...

    Even if racism were wiped out tomorrow, we'd still need to address pervasive racial wealth inequality. Here's why. Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in...

    Sadly, it has come down to this. When they assumed power in 2009, Democrats promised that a trillion-dollar stimulus package would invigorate the economy and create millions of jobs. It did not happen—all while trillions of dollars were added to the national debt which will become due when these current lawmakers are safely in retirement. The president of the United States and congressional Democrats promised that if they passed Obamacare, you could keep your doctor and your health plan while your premiums would decrease by an average of $2,500 a year. All of these claims were assessed and identified by...

In a study of America's evolving demographics, the Pew Research Center found 52 percent of people view Obama as being "mixed race." Less than a third view him as "black." More than half of white people view Obama as "mixed race," but more than half of black people view the president as "black."

    Attorney General Eric Holder said he was careful not to allude to a racial component when criticizing Congress’s treatment of him last week. "I didn't say there was a racial component. I was very careful not to say that," Holder told The Huffington Post on Monday. Last week, Holder told a civil rights group he and President Obama’s administration have been subject to "unprecedented" and "ugly" attacks. He asked what attorney general or president in history had to deal with the same. Instead of race, Holder said he was alluding to the "breakdown in civility" and the ability to cultivate...

    WHEN I WAS young, public service television commercials were not uncommon. One of the more famous ones featured an American Indian looking at a polluted landscape. At the commercial's close, there was a tear in his eye. Less iconic was a commercial about fair housing. A superintendent is showing a substandard apartment — it needs a lot of work. If I recall, he shows the bathroom and how getting a nickel washer from the hardware store would fix the plumbing. The commercial's goal was to educate people of color that there were laws protecting them against housing discrimination. I was...

    On the day before Jews prepared to begin their sacred holiday of Passover, a pair of horrible events cast a pall over the Jewish community. The Kansas Jewish Community Center became a tragic scene when a gunman opened fire. The gunman’s rampage also took him to the nearby retirement community of Village Shalom. The word “shalom” in Hebrew has three meanings. It translates to “hello,” “goodbye,” and “peace.” Now three innocent Americans were forced to say goodbye to the world. For their families, there will be no more peace. Hours before the shooting took place, another hateful individual was engaging...

It isn’t much of a stretch to believe that Sharpton is a liar and race pimp of the worst kind. He does little that does not benefit him directly.

    As you look through the long list (and its a very long list indeed) of issues that Democrats inject race and the perception of racism into the argument, the uproar over Voter ID Laws is the most hilarious and telling. One very simple concept, showing one's proof of identity at the polling place, is not only a common sense way to reduce voting fraud, but is a measure roundly supported by voters of all race and ethnicity. But to the progressive-left, this is yet another potential wedge issue to paint the Republican Party, and conservatives in particular, as racists dead...

    Conservatives and liberals had entirely different reactions to the recent confrontation between Attorney General Eric Holder and Republican Congressman Louie Gohmert. After the event, Holder expressed his view that no previous attorney general or president had ever had to deal with such treatment and that the reason had to do with race. Gohmert, on the other hand, said he was just performing congressional oversight because he didn't think Holder was doing his job. This is the latest episode in an American tragedy that has been unfolding since the English first settled colonies in North America. In July 1619, the first...

    The context for this little chestnut of racial nastiness was a heated floor debate in the Illinois legislature over a proposed education reform bill. The fireworks started when Democratic Representative Linda Chapa LaVia, who is Hispanic, delivered a speech criticizing charter schools. Ms. Chapa LaVia was no doubt casting aspersions on behalf of teachers unions — who’ve contributed heavily to her campaigns, are bankrupting the state, and don’t much care for competition. In defense of the status quo — which traps far too many children, especially children of color, in failing public schools — Chapa LaVia appealed to her fellow...

    If I were outlining a racial history of the Obama administration, it would begin with policy: A housing collapse that destroyed black Americans’ wealth; a health care law attacked as “reparations” and crippled by a neo-Calhounite doctrine of “state sovereignty”; a broad assault on voting rights and access to the polls, concentrated in the states of the former Confederacy. Indeed, it would focus on the deep irony of the Obama era: That the first black president has presided over a declining status quo for many black Americans. In short, it would treat race as a real force in public life...

It was a week ago today as he drove his pick-up down the street. As he approached a vehicle parked on the right, a group of boys stepped out from behind it, directly in front of his truck. One of the boys was struck, an 11-year-old lad whose...

    Question: Who are the most prominent public purveyors of Asian stereotypes and ethnic language-mocking in America? The right answer is liberal Hollywood and Democrats. The wrong and slanderous answer is conservatives, which is what liberal performance artist/illegal-alien-amnesty lobbyist Stephen Colbert wants Americans to believe. Last week on his Comedy Central show, Colbert resurrected his "satirical" 2005 "Ching-Chong Ding-Dong" skit, in which he speaks in pidgin English with a grossly exaggerated accent. He used it in a boneheaded attempt to ridicule Republican football team owner Dan Snyder and others who defend the Washington Redskins' name. "Oh, I ruv tea. It's...

    The attorney’s letter describing how his client, his Italian-American client, was treated by a town’s “Professional” still hurts me. When I tried to sleep after reading it, on that one night, I got up to get an old teddy bear sitting in an antique chair that belonged to my mother. I brought the chair and the teddy down to what I thought was to be my great, new home in Florida. I crawled back in bed, pulled teddy up close, and turned on my side. But I no longer could pull my knees up under my chin. The letter stabbed...

    More details are emerging about what was presented at the "White Privilege Conference" held in Madison, Wisconsin, where tax money was spent to train teachers how to annihilate "white privilege" and "white supremacy" in American schools. One session insisted that whites can never be cured of their permanent racist attitudes. On March 30, Breitbart reported on the conference, now in its fifteenth year. Over these years, teachers have been told that whites have been pushing "white supremacy" on kids since the country was created, and that whites are so infused with racism that they aren't even cognizant of their crimes....
  • Ta-Nehisi Coates Disagrees With ‘Jonathan Chait,’ and So Do I

    Ta-Nehisi Coates and I started having a fascinating debate about the beliefs of President Obama. Coates has turned it into a less-fascinating debate about my beliefs, or what he calls my beliefs. The trouble is that I share almost none of the beliefs he ascribes to me. I write “almost” because there’s one exception, which Coates places at the end, but I’ll place at the beginning. Coates and I disagree about racial progress in America. Coates sees the Americas' racial history as a story of continuity of white supremacy. I see the sequence (I’d call it a progression, but that...

    You’d think every American would love free speech. Wrong. Some ultra sensitive liberals oppose free speech even when applied to their favorite TV hosts—as illustrated by the recent Twitter protest of Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report. Last Thursday night, Twitter began blowing up with the hashtag #CancelColbert. The online protest started when the Twitter account attached to The Colbert Report posted a tweet that at first glance seemed insensitive to Asians. In less than five minutes of research—more time than fragile protesters were willing to invest—I was able to learn three vital points: First, unsurprisingly, the quote was never meant...

    When Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Calif, went off on Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis, for his remarks that “We have got a tailspin of culture, in our inner cities in particular, of men not working and just generations of men not even thinking about working or learning the value and the culture of work,” the wrong part what she had to say got all the attention. The big buzz that Congressional Black Caucus member Lee generated was her accusation that Ryan’s remarks were a “thinly veiled racial attack.” But the part of her remarks I found most interesting was “…Mr. Ryan should...

    Officials with the Olathe School District issued an apology Friday after only black students were invited on a school outing. On Wednesday, a letter was sent to Olathe South High School students by Assistant Principal Candy Birch. In the letter, Birch said in her role as activities director that she wanted to give students an additional opportunity to connect with each other. "So we are planning an outing open to our African-American sophomores and juniors," she wrote. The event on April 5 would include a visit to the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum, the American Jazz Museum, lunch at Arthur Bryant's...
