Racializing the Death of a Black Man by the Police, Part 2

February 10th, 2023 1:49 PM

Last week we discussed how many on the Left considered the death of a black suspect, Tyre Nichols, following a beating by five Memphis black cops, an example of police anti-black “systemic racism.” Columbia Law Professor Kimberle Crenshaw, a proponent of critical race theory, offered this hysterical perspective: “Anyone who knows the history of enslavement, anyone who knows the history of…

It became national, indeed, international news that five Memphis police officers grabbed, punched, beat, pepper-sprayed and stun-gunned a black suspect, named Tyre Nichols, who later died at the hospital. A picture of him in his hospital bed showing his swollen, battered and bloodied face went viral on social media.

In the wake of the “Twitter Files,” let’s revisit former President Barack Obama’s warning last April about the spread of misinformation: “You just have to flood a country’s public square with enough raw sewage. You just have to raise enough questions, spread enough dirt, plant enough conspiracy theorizing that citizens no longer know what to believe.”

My father’s wisdom: White customer to my father in my father’s cafe: “Did you hear what your leader said yesterday?” Randolph Elder: “Who are you talking about?” White customer: “Jesse Jackson.” Elder to the customer: “Who is your leader?” Customer: “I don’t have one.” Elder: “Well, neither do I.” “Democrats want to give you something for nothing. When you try to get something for nothing, you…

Stanford University’s Anti-‘American’ Wokeness

December 29th, 2022 9:12 AM

Stanford University put out a new list of words it considers to be “harmful language.” The 13-page “Elimination of Harmful Language Initiative” includes words like “immigrant,” which should be replaced by “person who has immigrated.” It advises against saying “walk-in hours” in favor of “open hours” to avoid discriminating against and hurting the feeling of those with disabilities. Stanford…

Fact-Checking ‘The Woman King’ and the Absurdity of Reparations

December 26th, 2022 12:46 PM

When it comes to the absurdity of American taxpayers giving “reparations” to black descendants of slaves, it’s hard to limit the number of objections. Apart from the fact that American slavery, though horrific, was legal; that it ended 157 years ago; that the government did not own slaves, the private sector did; that most Southerners did not own slaves; that nearly all slave owners were…

Elon Musk conducted a Twitter poll to ask whether he should reinstate former President Donald Trump’s account. The poll received 15,085,458 votes -- and Twitter issued its final results in just one day! Musk should stop wasting his genius on hobbies like Tesla and SpaceX and become the Maricopa County, Arizona, election supervisor. About that Twitter poll, what’s the over/under on when two-…

A Pro-Abortion Advocate Made This Case Against Abortion

November 28th, 2022 5:48 PM

Pundits, liberal and conservative, underestimated the impact on the midterms of the reaction to the reversal of Roe v. Wade. In states like Kentucky and Michigan, where abortion was on the ballot, restrictions to abortion were lost, and “protecting access” to abortion won. In California, voters voted on Proposition 1, a ballot measure to “codify” abortion by placing the right to abortion in…

Los Angeles Times’s Wrongheaded Recall Postmortem

October 28th, 2022 9:14 AM

California Gov. Gavin Newsom survived his 2021 recall election by 24 points, the same margin by which he won the election in 2018. However, to keep his job he spent over $9 per voter versus $6 per voter to get his job. I ran in the recall election, finishing first among the 46 “replacement” candidates with 3.5 million votes while carrying 57 of California's 58 counties, losing only San…

The Race-Obsessed L.A. City Council

October 21st, 2022 8:30 AM

In a leaked tape, three members of the all-Democrat (plus one independent) Los Angeles City Council, along with a labor leader -- all Latino -- used racist, homophobic, anti-white, anti-Asian, and even anti-Mexican slurs as they plotted to redistrict the city council to increase “Latino power.” LA is approximately 50% Latino, but Latinos control “just” 30% of the 15 council seats. For the…

September 1st, 2022 5:55 PM

To reduce inflation, battle climate change, reduce gas prices, stem rising crime and to protect our southern border, President Joe Biden has forgiven $10,000 in federal student loans and extended $20,000 in debt cancellation to Pell Grant recipients for borrowers making less than $125,000 a year. A study by the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School found that “Between 69% and 73% of debt…
