Cliven Bundy Speaks the Truth, GOP Turns and Runs

Rancher Cliven Bundy, who became an overnight hero of conservatives when the feds swarmed his ranch (which was on federal land and for which he had not and has not paid grazing fees in twenty years), has stepped into some cow pie with the remarks me made to a New York Times reporter. To the non-thinkers, his statements sounded horribly racist. To the cowards, his statements made sense but required fierce, public rebuke. Here’s...

Uncle Thomas, Affirmative Action, and the Recent SCOTUS Decision

Recently, the Supreme Court decided to uphold Michigan’s ban of affirmative action as it applies to college applicants. In other words, the Supreme Court said that Michigan was allowed to look at college applicants entirely on merit, with no consideration of their race. The decision passed the Supreme Court with six votes in favor, two against, and one abstention. You would think most people would be happy about this. I mean, aren’t...

Some Republicans out there like to pretend that they believe New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez could beat Hillary Clinton in a 2016 presidential election. Admittedly, it would be more probable than Sarah Palin ever being president, but that isn’t saying much. These Republicans, however, forget that Democratic women are not looking for a female candidate per se, but rather a female candidate who is a Democrat; a candidate who...

Ethnic Diversity: University President Asks How They Can Make School “Less White”

The only kind of racism allowed these days is that aimed at whites. All whites are born privileged. They’re all inherently racist themselves, and there’s nothing they can do about it. Whites can be barred from “diversity” meetings, and there’s no scandal. Try even thinking about reversing the roles in those situations to make blacks or other minorities the targets, and just see what happens. Western Washington University President...

Airports, Government Buildings & Democratic National Conventions are Racist According to Holder’s Logic

US Attorney General Eric Holder has fought every attempt by Republicans to require a photo ID to vote.  He claims that it’s racist and discriminates against blacks and Hispanics.  Somehow in his warped logic, he doesn’t believe that poor minorities are capable of getting photo IDs so they can vote. I received an email from former US Rep. Allen West that showed just how flawed Holder’s logic is.  Michele Hickford wrote that she and...
