The subtext of Trump's nativist, xenophobic, counterfactual tweets should rock your world

The subtext of Trump's nativist, xenophobic, counterfactual tweets should rock your world
According to Fox’s Brit Hume, Trump’s ‘go back’ comments were nativist, xenophobic, counterfactul (sic) and politically stupid.   Hume apparently uses the word counterfactual when he means lying. He also says that Trump’s comments simply do not meet the standard definition of racist.  He may have his own definition of standard definition. Any unbiased observer would be... Read more »

Blue lives matter very much, but that does not equate to Black Lives Matter

Blue lives matter very much, but that does not equate to Black Lives Matter
In last week’s post, The Confederate flag is racist, Black History Month is not, I brought up the subject of Blue Lives Matter being equated to Black Lives Matter. Blue lives matter. Very much.  All lives matter.  Neither one of those, however, equates with or diminishes the message of Black Lives Matter. Michael Brown, an... Read more »

The Confederate flag is racist, Black History Month is not

The Confederate flag is racist, Black History Month is not
If you find the message in the above featured image offensive, you are not alone. In fact, I’m flabbergasted that this is a commonly held belief. Even if it’s not a commonly held belief, it is certainly a commonly repeated fabrication. The logic of the whole reverse racism thing is almost enough to make me... Read more »

Steve King, white supremacy and the word "schvartze"

Steve King, white supremacy and the word "schvartze"
Iowa Congressman Steve King presents a challenge to America on many levels. I’ve quoted fictional President Andrew Shepard in this space before: “America isn’t easy. America is advanced citizenship. You gotta want it bad, ’cause it’s gonna put up a fight.  It’s gonna say “You want free speech? Let’s see you acknowledge a man whose... Read more »

Donnie Drumpf and Cindy Hyde-Smith step up to a public hanging

Donnie Drumpf and Cindy Hyde-Smith step up to a public hanging
Donnie Drumpf had high praise for Republican Senate hopeful Cindy Hyde-Smith and held held two rallies in support of her candidacy. Walmart on the other hand, asked her to return their campaign donation.  As toxic as Hyde-Smith was to Walmart, that’s how important her vote is to Donnie Drumpf. The urgency of that need increases daily... Read more »

If you don't vote, you are part of the problem

If you don't vote, you are part of the problem
In 22 countries around the world it is illegal NOT to vote. Skipping out on your patriotic duty in Australia will cost you $20. I don’t know if that’s $20 Australian or U.S., but you can read more HERE. In 1773 the Sons of Liberty boarded three British ships in Boston Harbor and dumped 342... Read more »

Where Do You Fall on the Shithole Scale?

Where Do You Fall on the Shithole Scale?
The President of the United States wants to prioritize immigration based on his own cryptic shithole scale.  You may wonder where you fall on that scale. If you are not white or you are from a place where the majority of your countrymen are not white, you may find yourself pretty far down on the... Read more »

Will the Return of Slavery End Racism in America?

Will the Return of Slavery End Racism in America?
A few months after Donald Trump announced his candidacy in 2015, I conjured up the headline, “Is Donald Trump Enough of a Racist to Bring Back Slavery?” The title was pure hyperbole and the piece went nowhere. At the time, Trump was making ridiculous claims and bragging about himself in a stream of superlatives that... Read more »

Alabama Never Had No Race Problems Until They Elected a Black President

Alabama Never Had No Race Problems Until They Elected a Black President
You just can’t make this stuff up and it doesn’t hurt my head any less no matter how many times I read it: “Alabama Never Had No Race Problems Until They Elected a Black President.” That’s an actual quote from a Roy Moore supporter interviewed last week in Alabama.  It may have been Ann Eubank,...

Colin Kaepernick Should Stand During the National Anthem, but We Need to Defend his Right Not To

Colin Kaepernick Should Stand During the National Anthem, but We Need to Defend his Right Not To
NOTE:  The following was published last year, at the beginning of the #takeaknee brouhaha.  I still feel the same about the flag, but there is much about my country of which I am not proud, not the least of which is an unrepentant, untruthful, uninformed president who stokes the fires beneath that which is most...
