In my many years of serving on faculty hiring committees, I have often heard the statement “minorities and women are encouraged to apply.” It usually follows in close proximity to the statement “our institution does not discriminate on the basis of race.” The two statements cannot be reconciled by logic. But, then again, logic is considered a form of white oppression at the postmodern university.
The left’s latest target du jour is ALEC, the American Legislative Exchange Council. ALEC is a nonprofit, nonpartisan membership organization for state legislators.
In wake of the recent tragedy involving the death of Trayvon Martin in FL, America has once again been thrust into the race debate. Trayvon was shot and killed by George Zimmerman, who was labeled a “white Hispanic” by some mainstream media outlets, and thus began a flurry of relentless racial attacks.
No matter whether Zimmerman is charged or convicted, a tragedy occurred. But is Jesse Jackson right, that the death of Trayvon Martin suggests "blacks are under attack," presumably by racist non-blacks?
“I have been affiliated with the Cuba Council of Churches since the 1980s,” boasted Rev. Jeremiah Wright in a sermon on July 16th 2006.
Remember when Don Imus saw his cushy CBS Radio and MSNBC career go up in smoke in 2007 when he tried very early one morning to make one of his fake misanthropic jokes about the Rutgers women's basketball team being "nappy-headed hoes"? Black activists demanded his firing. Advertisers fled. The corporate suits, appalled and fearful of the terrible publicity, canned him.
MLK’s Niece Alveda King refutes Jesse Jackson's comparison of the Occupy Protest with Civil Rights, and speaks for what her uncle would truly stand for.
Occupy Wall Street is made up of a bunch of European-style nihilists in the purest sense. Their stock-in trade is alienation, Jared Lee Loughner-style. They are talking revolution; extra-legal punishment; confiscation of property; the recognition of rocks and trees as people.
You may or may not know, but I am on the board of the National World War Two Museum in New Orleans, Louisiana. Lots of people say it’s “an honor” to do this or that, but to me this is an amazing privilege and opportunity to do something good for some people, and my country.
I have noted time and again that in a discussion of politics the first person to inject the topic of race into the discussion is often the racist. This time it was in a discussion of politics on MSNBC led by Lawrence O'Donnell, who interviewed Herman Cain, the surprising "non politician" who is fast becoming a powerful contender for the Republican presidential nomination.
What to do about Herman Cain? This question goes not to the Republican Party, where "establishment" candidates like Mitt Romney privately dismiss Cain as lacking the experience, gravitas and resources to beat President Barack Obama and then to soundly govern the country.
