High School Removes “Huckleberry Finn,” Cites Student Discomfort
A high school guided by Quaker philosophy has removed The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn from its 11th grade curriculum, citing students feeling “uncomfortable” with the book’s portrayal of blacks and the frequent use of the N-word. It is most certainly not the first time the book has come under attack, and Twain’s classic is one of the most frequently banned books in the U.S. The novel | Read More »
Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Racist Affirmative Action Argument
One of the most pernicious effects of Jim Crow is that it won’t go away. Before the 1964 Civil Rights Act, racist Democrats used the Jim Crow laws to secure their political base by preventing blacks from voting and generally participating in the economic life of the nation. After 1964, progressive Democrats used the Civil Rights Act and affirmative action as a means of wedding | Read More »
Spike Lee Smacks Down MSNBC’s Chris Hayes On Black-on-Black Crime [VIDEO]
Last night on MSNBC, Chris Hayes interviewed Spike Lee about his upcoming film “Chi-Raq”, a musical remix of Aristophanes’s farce “Lysistratawhich” that chronicles the violence, murder and mayhem occurring in the streets of Chicago every day. Lee has faced some criticism for the film, including from the left and particularly from the #BlackLivesMatter crowd over the fact that, to put it simply, it’s not all | Read More »
Mother Jones leads with an incredibly racist story against Marco Rubio
Mother Jones came out today with a racist article, and led their home page with it today. The publication has come out with an attack on non-violent convicted felons participating in the political process in Florida, because they think it’ll hurt . Don’t take my word for it though, that this very concept is racist. It was just last month that Mother Jones said that | Read More »
You are White, and You Should Feel Bad About That. So Attend This Retreat.
If anything tops my list of concerns in 2015, it isn’t addressing and correcting the so-called racial privilege of college students. But that’s just me, and I’m not the University of Vermont. Before the barbaric terrorist attacks in Paris last Friday, student protesters at Mizzou and elsewhere had been vocal about the privilege of white students compared to the oppression of black students. Since the | Read More »
Ben Carson’s Vetting By An Situationally Curious And Maybe Racist Media
This has been one of the most shameful weeks in the history of American media, and that covers a lot of waterfront. The scurrilous and obviously false attacks by POLITICO were only the worse. CNN dispatched people to try to find Carson’s 8th grade classmates to verify their memory of… wait for it… Carson’s memory. I have no idea how that works. I can give | Read More »
Fox’s Ken Rosenthal: Math is Racist.
In case you haven’t heard, the rules of running a Major League Baseball team have been rewritten over the last 15 years. In fact for decades, Bill James and other analysts had been honing mathematically-based tools for analyzing baseball, and predicting which players and strategies help you win more games. But it was only after the turn of the century that teams started to listen. | Read More »

Speech codes, but only for Whitey?
Sometimes we get an interesting look into the minds of the radicals. I limit my exposure to their rantings, but in preparing for Tech at Night posts, I have to read some of it, unfortunately. I ran into a hilarious juxtaposition of articles at the Daily Dot today, that highlighted the racism bubbling beneath the surface in the Social Justice left.
The New York Times’ Racist Attack on Clarence Thomas
It is interesting that a major newspaper would so blatantly call out the only black man on the Supreme Court for borrowing language in briefings. He is by far not the only one, and his average rate of language borrowed from briefings is not that much different from his peers. Over the years, the average rate of nearly identical language between a party’s brief and the | Read More »
The war is over. These men won it for Liberty.
Like most of us, Nikki Haley is lucky to be alive today. Had she been born 60 years earlier, she’d have had few civil rights, stuck under one-party Democratic Party rule enforcing a racist system of tyranny. Had she been born 150 years earlier, she might have had none at all, under one-party Democratic Party rule enforcing a racist system of chattel slavery. Yesterday she | Read More »

Racism in America: Trickle-Down Guilt?
In the days since the horrific events in Charleston, in which a racist, terrorist thug murdered nine people, the national conversation has taken a turn away from the dear souls lost to other things. Namely, the usage of the Confederate flag in South Carolina (and elsewhere), and America’s bloodstained past filled with slavery. This piece is not about the innocent lives lost on the night | Read More »
The Terrorist and the Pigs
I dedicate this Youtube video to anyone who has politically exploited the slaying of 9 churchgoers in Charleston by racist terrorist Dylann Storm Root. In Charleston, SC, we have beheld a manifestation of true evil in the persona of Dylann Storm Root. If the immediate reaction of our most obnoxious and aggressive opinion-makers is actually indicative of the true American Spirit in Anno Domini MMXV, | Read More »
