Obama Admits He Didn’t Create a Post-Racial Society
President Obama is in the legacy-building portion of his administration. He wants to be seen as the cool guy who inhabited the White House for eight years. Among his “successes” is the failure known as Obamacare, foreign policy blunders, economic stagnation, and an increase in racial tension. But he wants you to know – after the fact – that last one wasn’t going to change anyway. The | Read More »

The Casual Racism of the Left
Both The Washington Post and The New Republic have something in common – Bobby Jindal just isn’t Indian enough.

Starbucks’s racial conversations claims its first victim
You could see this coming. It was as visible as a thunderhead on the prairie. The only people who couldn’t see the logical outcome of Starbucks’s utterly benighted plan to encourage untrained “baristas” start conversations on race with people they didn’t know was the people who came up with the idea. Yesterday, my colleague, Moe Lane, set up the potential for hijinks: I do not | Read More »

Race: A Conservative View
The recent events in Ferguson, Missouri, ought to cause us to pause and reflect on the issue of race in America. It seems like after every incident similar to what is happening in that St. Louis suburb, we hear calls from our friends on the Left for a “national conversation on race”. It is a conversation we have needed to have for decades, and it | Read More »

While we’re redefining gender and marriage, why not redefine everything else?
Words have meanings. Meanings have consequences.
What about cancer? Let’s redefine cancer as anyone who says they have it. Then I could ask on Facebook for people to donate to my cancer treatment, check in to a hospital and lay in a bed while the donations roll in. Then when I decide I’m better, I can call myself a cancer survivor, and thank everyone for the donations I can now use to buy houses for myself and other self-identified cancer survivors.
That’s offensive? Why? My body is the most personal thing I have, and if I say there’s cancer in me, then by God it must be there. If I say it’s gone, then I’ve survived the cancer.

Diversity or Reversity?
DIVERSITY? “Unleashing the Power of Our Diversity”. That’s the slogan used by some dear friends of mine, to promote their course for diversity education. I suspect that it also describes what many in corporate America hope they’re getting with their investment in diversity education, though the primary motivation for this investment still seems to be avoiding discrimination-related litigation. Sadly, though diversity has been increasingly emphasized | Read More »

50 years of change Sam Cooke wanted and some he didn’t
Fifty-one years ago, Sam Cooke and his band were denied rooms at a Holiday Inn in Shreveport, Louisiana thanks to that state’s adherence to racial segregation laws then prevalent throughout the South. Fifty years ago this week, and just ten moths before he would be shot to death at a motel in Los Angeles, the prolific gospel-soul artist penned the anthem of the civil rights movement, | Read More »
