    In her recent Vogue essay, model Emily Ratajkowski signals her most progressive beliefs, only to find herself wrestling with the pesky reality that is biology. Model, actress, and radical feminist Emily Ratajkowski announced her pregnancy in this month’s Vogue Magazine, writing an essay reflecting on the sex of her child.As is the case with many far-left causes and feminists, Ratajkowski signals her most progressive beliefs, only to find herself wrestling with the pesky reality that is biology. Like Tampax claiming men can have periods, or school districts ruling it fair for boys to compete in girls’ sports, leftist causes often...

    Smith College in Massachusetts is offering a course this fall semester called White Supremacy in the Age of Trump. The course will explore questions such as is White Supremacy a permanent feature of race in contemporary U.S. society? and how does one appropriately respond to its ideology and political power in the Age of Trump? Students will examine the relationship between white supremacy and white privilege, as well as analyze the history, prevalence, and current manifestations of the white supremacist movement, and learn how to build a human rights movement, which includes reproductive justice," so that students can counter the...

    Based on the recommendations of consultants they paid nearly half a million taxpayer dollars, the Loudon County school board recently approved an Equity Plan steeped in critical race rhetoric. Ever since the unfortunate death of George Floyd, corporate media, virtue-signaling neighborhood leftists, and politicians have been talking about “systemic racism” in America, even though there was and still is no evidence that Floyd’s death was motivated by race.This is emblematic of the growing concern about “critical race theory,” in which everything is viewed through the lens of race because, the theory claims, “racism is present in every aspect of life,...

    Rocker Jon Bon Jovi has called himself the poster boy for white privilege, adding that he had to be very careful while writing his recent single American Reckoning, which pays homage to George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter movement. Jon Bon Jovi spoke to CBS Sunday Morning about the song and the bands album 2020, saying that the new record is not meant to take political sides. During the interview, the 58-year-old rocker, who once called President Donald Trump an evil genius, also offered to atone for his race and economic status. If Im not the poster-boy for what...

    To reinforce the principles that strengthen our military, the Trump administration should vigorously enforce prohibitions on critical race theory programs. Imagine this: Army base streets or Navy ship decks are painted with tributes to Black Lives Matter, a movement whose lead organization self-identifies as Marxist. At the Army-Navy game, players take a knee instead of saluting the flag. Military officers are denied promotions if they do not fit percentage-based sex and race quotas. And, to meet “New Woke World” expectations, some promotable officers organize book clubs for subordinates to study best-sellers like “White Fragility.”Oh, wait — Navy Captain Hallock Mohler,...

    If White Privilege is a thing and Black Disadvantage a fact why do all these white women keep pretending that theyre black? Thats easy; because over time being black, or indeed any person of color in America, has evolved from being a distinct disadvantage to being an advantage in many lines of endeavor especially academia (and politics: Im talking to you Elizabeth). Current case in point: Jessica Krug, George Washington University African history professor who teaches introductory-level history and advanced courses on African studies. I would like to see a syllabus for Jessicas introductory-level history class; Im certain that...

    President Trump has ordered an end to training on white privilege and critical race theory in the federal bureaucracy. The directive is a good first step toward removing identity politics from federal operations. Next up should be the millions of taxpayer dollars devoted annually to cultivating race- and sex-based grievance in the sciences. The National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have all embraced the idea that science is pervaded by systemic bias that handicaps minorities and women. Those agencies have taken on the job of extirpating such inequity on the...

    I wended my way up the Walgreens greeting card aisle. I stopped dead in my tracks. A card featured a cartoon image of a white man with a mullet haircut. This cartoon character wore a baseball or seed cap and a sleeveless t-shirt, a so-called "guinea T," "dago T" or "wife-beater." The very names convey class and ethnic contempt, as the New York Times points out. "Is the vilification of working-class men fair?" The Times laments, in an op-ed entitled "Are We Really Still Calling This Shirt a 'Wife Beater'?" Over the sleeveless t-shirt, the character on the card was...

    Leftists are outing themselves as racists complicit in perpetuating systems of oppression. Maybe it's time we started believing them. Black Lives Matter is the operational arm of “critical race theory,” the postmodern philosophy of “critical theory” applied to race. Critical theory suffers an inescapable epistemological conundrum. It’s the Liar’s Paradox: If a Cretan says all Cretans are liars, is he to be believed?Or, in the case of critical theory: If a theory denies objective or universal truths, claiming that the powers-that-be subconsciously construct “reality” by projecting their will to power onto the transcendent screen of axiomatic certainty, all to perpetuate...

    In 2018, the median income for white households was $65,777. This is substantially higher than the worldwide median household income, which in 2013 was listed as hovering around just $10,000. Ask a conservative and they’ll point to this as evidence of how great and privileged it is to be an American. As anyone else and they’ll point to white privilege and systemic advantages.   No doubt, a median income of $65,000 affords a lot of opportunities. Even after accounting for taxes that siphon approximately 25% away from the principal, an average mortgage payment of $1,100 in 2020 and average monthly...

    Given that Im assigned to cover sports as delivered by TV, two recent developments have become dominant, repetitive themes: 1) If you dont have a bet or bets on the games, youre out of touch with sports, especially how they plan to sustain viewership and TV billions by suckering the young and vulnerable. How would MLB now welcome Pete Rose to the Hall of Fame? Come on in, Pete! Gambling on baseball is good!

    Must everything be about race? Can nothing be about merit? Can owners of a sports franchise no longer hire the person they believe is best qualified without making it into an issue of race? Im talking here about the claim of the popular (and controversial) sports commentator Stephen A. Smith that the hiring of NBA great Steve Nash to coach the Brooklyn Nets can only be explained on the basis of White privilege. To be sure, Smith loves Nash as a person and has the highest respect for him as a basketball player. In no way is he criticizing Nash,...

    The Trump administration has instructed federal agencies to end racial sensitivity trainings that address topics like white privilege and critical race theory, calling them "divisive, anti-American propaganda." In a letter to federal agencies Friday, the director of the Office of Management and Budget said the president recently became aware of the racial sensitivity programs, which encourage frank conversations about race in the workplace and discuss potential actions to combat systemic racism. The memo, issued by OMB Director Russell Vought, reads in part: "All agencies are directed to begin to identify all contracts or other agency spending related to any training...

    What would you think if your 8-year-old came home and told you that “white privilege is something that white people have, meaning they have an advantage in a lot of things and they can get a job more easily”? You would have heard that at the recent 15th annual White Privilege Conference in Madison, Wisconsin, attended by 2,500 public-school teachers, administrators and students from across the nation (http://tinyurl.com/lkoqj9b). The average parent has no idea of the devious indoctrination going on in classrooms in many public schools. What follows are some of the lessons of the conference. In one of the...

    Stephen A. Smith, ESPNs controversial talking head and hot take artist, of course had an opinion on the Nets hiring of Steve Nash, the Hall of Fame point guard. Smith didnt like it, not because of Nashs lack of experience, but because he felt it was an instance of white privilege since more experienced black coaches such as Tyronn Lue and Mark Jackson were available. This is one of the toughest positions Ive ever had to take, Smith said on the air. Ladies and gentlemen, theres no way around this. This is white privilege. This does not happen for a...

    The Communist Roots of “White Privilege” You’ll never be radical enough. Americans are struggling to come to terms with the significance of the ongoing insurrection on America’s streets. How does one understand the motives of those who chant “Black Lives Matter” while demanding to topple a statute erected by freed slaves to celebrate their own emancipation?After 9/11, American citizens were encouraged by leftists to ask, “Why do they hate us?” Today the same people, trained by years of victim-blaming to hold themselves accountable for terrorism both foreign and domestic, are asking a similar question. “What flaw of ours makes these...

During the prayer on Sunday at St. Xavier Catholic Church worshippers repeated the words of Father Kenneth Boller, who had adorned the alter with giant portraits of George Floyd, Breanna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery. This was a strange sermon at a Catholic Church?! Does New York Cardinal Dolan know about this?

    Former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton talked about how she is working to "erode" white privilege out of her children during a conversation with Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) about voting rights in America. The conversation was part of a "Women for Biden" online event. "You know, congresswoman, certainly my children are young, but we believe they're young but still citizens so we talked about the ratification of the 19th Amendment and women's equality day but how fundamentally incomplete that victory was," Clinton said. According to the former first daughter, the 19th Amendment was a "flawed victory" because "indigenous and black women...
