Obama and Holder need a new deck of cards
In the Obama administration, the frayed-around-the-edges card with the word “race” on it has been played so often that it’s barely recognizable. Still, it hasn’t stopped Barry and his attorney general from playing it when the temperature in the kitchen starts to climb, such as it is right now with the resurgence of radical Islam in the Middle East and the disaster taking place on | Read More »
No, an Obama Presidential Library / outhouse float is not racist. …*Duh*.
Sometimes, the Left’s soft bigotry of lowered expectations isn’t actually all that soft.

Racism for Fun (and Profit!)
Personally, I’m opposed to the Washington Redskins’ name. And what I mean by that is that I find it personally grating and offensive, for reasons that are beyond the purview of this post. What I am even more strongly opposed to, however, is the ludicrous method by which the Federal Government is attempting to impose orthodoxy on the team by unjustifiably yanking their Trademark. Liberals | Read More »
If you call the president (or his wife) a monkey, you’re a degenerate boob who needs to grow up
I don’t get it. You have to be pretty darn obtuse not to realize that calling a black man a “monkey” is racially charged in a public forum. It’s idiotic. Imbecilic. Obscene. And yet, daily, in social media, I see it, some fool (often, multiple fools) referring to Barack Obama as a monkey, ape, vine-swinger, “jungle bunny”…. Ditto, his wife, who in addition to | Read More »
Michelle Obama lies to Kansas high school graduates…oh the irony
Oh the irony. Michelle Obama spoke to graduating high school students in Topeka, Kansas on May 16, celebrating the 60th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, which legally ended school segregation.
The lies come so easily. It’s Michelle Obama’s generation that is dragging our nation back into racism, a racism that is almost totally absent in most 18 year olds.

Reparations and perpetual shame
Reparations made it back into the news briefly last week, thanks to Ta-Nehisi Coates writing an Atlantic cover story on the subject. Kevin Williamson at National Review did a great job of deconstructing Coates’ argument, which was itself made with greater care than racial activists generally employ. Even someone wholeheartedly and unalterably opposed to reparations can find some food for thought in how Coates describes the lingering effects of | Read More »
The criminal population
Most people accept the basic proposition that a law-abiding citizen shouldn’t be harassed or punished by the government. The almost universal initial reaction to contact with a government entity is, “But I didn’t do anything wrong!” The vast majority of Americans would consider it outrageous if they were personally hassled, fined, or imprisoned without any legal violation. In fact, leaving aside legal principles about how “ignorance | Read More »
Donald Sterling, liberal hypocrisy, and warped priorities in Faux Outrage Land
Alright, I don’t want to comment on the overblown crime that isn’t a crime currently distracting from an economy that – thanks to Dear Leader – may soon fall behind China—I’d prefer to write about hemorrhoids, but since it reminds me of hemorrhoids, I’ll opine on the idiocy unleashed by Donald Sterling’s less than sterling yap. Yesterday, I stuck my toe in the water with the following insensitive and repugnant | Read More »
MSNBC: We Never Talk About Race Or Racism!
This is a new video from digitas daily, and it’s revealing, but exactly what you’d expect. Shown are clips from MSNBC in the days following the Cliven Bundy and Donald Sterling stories. Then the video breaks into a contrast, showing the different topics that MSNBC talked about prior to those stories. And by different, we mean totally exactly the same. With our without Bundy or | Read More »
Donald Sterling and Sodomy
First, let us agree that Donald Sterling is an awful human being. The subsequent paragraphs is in no way a defense of what Donald Sterling said, but rather a condemnation of the practice of attacking someone’s right to say what he or she wants in the privacy of their home. It is a condemnation of the practice of silencing speech. It is a condemnation of | Read More »
Government by sympathy
The controversy around L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling’s racist remarks was well past the boiling point before anyone in the media thought to ask an obvious question: “Was it a violation of his privacy rights for his young girlfriend to tape her conversations with him?” I believe it was none other than Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, writing for Time, who first raised the subject. Kareem is no defender of | Read More »
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 »

Obama’s poll numbers are down so you’re a racist!
Without even knowing what they are, I know Obama’s poll numbers must be on the decline, because the left has been wearing out the binding on their race-baiting bibles as they attack any and all criticisms brought by Republicans on the administration. This has become ever more apparent since the first of this year when, in a New Yorker Magazine article, Obama blamed his sinking | Read More »
