It’s Been 400 Years!

A lot of white people don’t realize this, but this year marks a shameful anniversary in the history of this continent and this nation. This year marks 400 years since the first black slaves were brought to this nation to … Continue reading

The Key to Winning 2020 and Beyond: Hope

I won’t even begin to predict the 2020 election, but I will state what should happen. Democrats should expand on our gains in 2018, and gain at least 10-12 seats in the Senate, another 20 in the House, the presidency … Continue reading

The Most Morally Reprehensible Budget in History

One thing I have noticed from the very beginning of his candidacy is that Donald Trump has been playing exclusively to one very specific (and relatively small) section of the American electorate. More than two years into his fluke term … Continue reading

I read an opinion piece this past weekend in which it was claimed that the Democratic Party was moving “to the left.” The author then proceeded to give the credit to Bernie Sanders and “white liberals” for moving the party … Continue reading

It’s Time to Remove the Mentally Ill Person From the White House

I happened across Donald Trump’s CPAC speech last night and made the mistake of starting to watch it. I made it through about 15 minutes of it, which is a minor miracle; I usually have a visceral reaction to hearing … Continue reading
