Alt-Right, My Ass

I wasn’t sure how I felt about the suddenly-popular term “alt-right” at first, but now I flat-out reject it. Given that the Republican Party made a conscious decision to recruit racists and bigots into their fold way back in 1964 because they were tired of losing, how “alt” can the

The Modern GOP: Live by the Racists, Die by the Racists

Earlier this week, Rob Reiner was taken to task by MSNBC’s resident moron, Joe Scarborough, otherwise known as Morning Joke, for his claim that most media doesn’t follow up enough when they interview Donald Trump. Reiner definitely held his own and forced the hosts into a defensive posture, which  indicates

White Liberals, Stop Embarrassing Me!

Yesterday was unbelievable. It was certainly a watershed moment in the history of #BernieBro rage. (Once again, before I start, a disclaimer: I have nothing against Bernie Sanders. In fact, there is a great possibility I will vote for him in the primary and, if he wins the nomination, I

Good Thing These Terrorists are White

I tried to tell you this would happen and it’s happening. There are so many images swirling around about this armed standoff in Oregon, but the one I can’t get over is the fact that these are white people and so many people seem relieved by that fact. I mean,

Guess what, white people; America is not “Post-Racial”

If you are bothering to read this, you probably remember how you felt on Nov. 4, 2008, when Senator Barack Obama of Illinois, a black man, was elected president of the United States. To many, it seemed as if a country with racism in its DNA had become a greater nation, almost overnight.

Ferguson shows that America has a long way to go…

I asked this question in another post a couple of weeks ago; “When did America become so mean?” The answer, of course, is a bit complicated. That article mostly dealt with immigration, and discussed why we seem to have such a difficult time welcoming people into the country. As many pointed out,

Richard Cohen: How Does Someone So Clueless About Race Survive 45 Years in DC Journalism?

One has to wonder whether or not Washington Post columnist Richard Cohen is ingesting mind-altering substances before he writes each of his columns, because they are becoming increasingly bizarre in recent years. His last two columns show a lack of racial and historical awareness that is absolutely stunning for someone

Cutting the Crap on Bill O’Reilly’s Racist Rant

Really, is there anything more obnoxious in the world than a 63-year-old white guy who obviously has extremely limited contact with black Americans lecturing us on what the first black President should have addressed last week in his remarks about Trayvon Martin? Think about this; a few years ago, Al

Limbaugh Finally Admits It: Civil Rights No Big Deal to the Far Right…

You know, sometimes you see something that just makes your jaw come apart and fall to the ground. I had always suspected that the right wing didn't care about an individuals; not really, anyway. Oh, sure, they don't want anyone to mess with their guns. Of course, they don't want

Take the Country Back from the Right Wing Racists

You know, I have to be honest here. I really can't imagine most of the loudest members of the Republican right wing fart machine, like Beck, Limbaugh or Hannity, lynching a black man.  It's unlikely someone like  Tom Tancredo or Representative Joe Wilson (not to be confused with Valerie Plame's
