    The 2016 presidential election will be the second since the court’s disastrous Citizens United decision and the first without the full protections of the Voting Rights Act in place. That means big donors will have more sway over elected officials to dictate the agenda. Already the wealthy are pouring money into the election: Politico reports that the 67 biggest donors, who have each given a million dollars or more have donated three times more than 508,000 small donors combined. A new report from Every Voice Center finds that individuals living in 1 percent of the nation’s zip codes (equal to...

    Cultural Marxism is called "critical theory" in many universities today. At Occidental College in California, where a young Barack Obama went after being tutored in Marxism by communist Frank Marshall Davis, "Critical Theory and Social Justice" is now an interdisciplinary department, "drawing on ideas from across traditional academic disciplines." The official department website describes Critical Theory as referring to "various bodies of theory and method—Marxism, psychoanalysis, the Frankfurt School, deconstruction, critical race studies, queer theory, feminist theory, postcolonial theory, and intersectionality—that interrogate the essentialist assumptions that underlie social identities." Courses include: • Mother Goose to Mash-Ups: Children's Literature and Popular...

    Whiteness takes over the 17th Annual White Privilege ConferenceA specter is haunting America. The specter of white privilege, white supremacy and whiteness. What is whiteness? If you ask the radical education activists at the 17th Annual White Privilege Conference,”whiteness” is the source of all human evil. Also it’s the race of the majority of the country. The conference with its 2,500 teachers, school administrators and counselors is a bizarre throwback to National Socialism’s ideological indoctrination of every part of society on the evils of one single race. Attendees wore the conference’s version of Nazi armbands with wristbands reading “Got Privilege”....

    A petition addressed to Adele, President Obama, and Billboard on demands that the singer admit that she has "little talent" and is succeeding mainly because of her white privilege. "Adele sold over 3.38 million copies of her album '25' and the media is praising her as if Adele's success has everything to do with talent," reads the petition, written by Rhianna Jones. "Rather, it's her white privilege that has put her on top," it declares. The petitioners also "demand that Adele donates her money to African-American causes such as #Blacklivesmatter."

My wife, my parents, my grandparents, and every member of my family, both living and deceased, are likewise a disease. But if you are reading this right now, and you are white, you should know that your children and all of your loved ones are also a disease. So implies a University of Colorado education professor, Cherly E. Matias, in the most recent edition of Teaching Education, a peer-reviewed journal.

Mizzou is, of course, just the most prominent example.

At the center of all these debates is another word: whiteness. At some universities, there are classes dedicated to understanding the...

    In the 1990s, when I lived in New York, a friend I’ll call Adam and I drove out to his house in Montauk, Long Island. A few miles into town, we noticed a police cruiser behind us. Adam, a stockbroker in his 30s, began to panic. “Crap, crap, crap!” Apparently, his car tag had expired — maybe his driver’s license and insurance, too. The cruiser turned on its lights and siren, and Adam pulled over. “Listen,” he said, “I may need you to bail me out.” I sat there, stunned and scared. The officer sauntered up to Adam’s window. “License...

    When the Provisional Irish Republican Army agreed to end its paramilitary insurgency (and/or terrorist campaign) against British rule in Northern Ireland with the Good Friday accords of 1998, it was unambiguously a good thing for the people of Ireland and their British next-door neighbors. It’s not like everything suddenly became hunky-dory in the long and troubled historical relationship between those islands, but the peace has largely held – splinter groups and isolated sectarian violence aside – and an era of relative normalcy and increasing prosperity has followed. Given the global context of the 21st century, an intractable religious-cum-nationalist dispute between...

It seems this white privilege thing is quite controversial, and while no two people who believe in this thing can agree on specifics, they all agree it exists. Apparently it’s not a physical creature at all but a ‘societal truth’. It’s kind of like...
