The Internet has a long memory. Joe Biden has an Internet trail of gaffes with praises for segregationists and more sinister racial problems. In a 1975 Senate hearing, the legendary civil rights lawyer Jack Greenberg had something to say to freshman Sen. Joe Biden. Greenberg, longtime director of the NAACP
As soon as I heard about how two black men were arrested in a Starbucks because they would not leave, I made some predictions. First, there would be Leftist outrage. Second, there would be an overreaction by Starbucks. Third, the Left would not be satisfied. My fourth prediction is below.
If the nation is really serious about race, then it’s time we put our politics where our mouth is. The following article headline caught my attention: “Black caucus has had it with Trump, plans to discuss impeachment” Here’s the opening paragraph: The Congressional Black Caucus, a formidable bloc of lawmakers
Finally there’s something on which I can agree with the liberal student crybabies. Some students at Princeton University don’t like Woodrow Wilson – a Democrat – who served as president of Princeton from 1902 to 1910 and as the 28th President of the United States. They want his name expunged
Calls for digging up civil war generals and their wives, removing any symbol of the confederacy, and even painting over the confederate battle emblem on the Dukes of Hazzard show-care the General Lee are gaining steam. It’s all symbol over substance. Not a single black teenager will find a job
NAACP Spokane leader Rachel Dolezal claimed she was black, passed herself off as black, and got a job working for the NAACP because the organization believed she was black. She has since resigned from her position after her family finally outed her as a freckled-faced white woman whose “family’s ancestry
Rabbi Michael Lerner wrote the following in the Huffington Post: “I fear those fundamentalist extremists just as much as I fear the Jewish extremists who have threatened my life and the Christian extremists who are now exercising power over the U.S. Congress. Every form of violence outrages and sickens me.”
Donald Sterling has been fined by the NBA and is banned for life from attending any NBA games or have any contact with players. It’s amazing how swiftly justice is meted out when money is involved. Oprah said Sterling’s comments remind her of “a plantation mentality in the 21st century,
Donald Sterling owns the Los Angeles Clippers. I didn’t know LA had another NBA team, and I had never heard of Donald Sterling. It seems he made some bigoted remarks about blacks and Hispanics that his girlfriend V. Stiviano (who is half-black and half-Mexican) secretly recorded. Here are two of them.
Blacks have always been worse off under Democrats. So much of liberal legislative action to help blacks ends up hurting them and moving them backwards economically. There’s no doubt that many blacks survive the attempt to make them wards of the State. The black family has been nearly destroyed by
Liberals were out in force on the Sunday talk-show circuit explaining why Republicans lost and what they should do to reverse the trend. Why would they be trying to help the opposition party? These guys and gals know why the Republicans lost: They didn’t appeal to their conservative base. Knowing
While I don’t debate for a living, I’ve been involved in lots of debates over the past 30 years. Some of them have been before live audiences in a formal debate setting, on the radio with callers, books, and (mostly) with emails and comment posters. A few years ago I
The operating assumption of an organization like the NAACP is any criticism of President Obama is because he’s black. How many times have we heard liberals in general and blacks in particular play the race card any time either President Obama or Attorney General Holder is called on to explain
On December 18, 1956, Clayton Heermance, a.k.a. Bud Collyer, landed what would become his most successful game-show hosting job ever — ToTell The Truth. The show had three contestants who claimed to be the same person and a panel of four celebrity questioners who tried to determine which one was
