Steven Pinker coined the phrase “progressaphobia” to describe the fear of believing real progress has been made on race relations and racial equality in the United States, but one need only pick up a history book to see how far we’ve come. History is frequently horrifying because of the progress we’ve made. On October 16,… Continue reading Bill Maher, Teddy Roosevelt, and the fear of progress in race relations
Critical Race Theory: You’re being lied to by teachers and the mainstream media, it’s coming to a classroom near you whether you like it or not
The largest teachers’ unions in America finally reveal the truth by voting to bring CRT and anti-racism into classrooms around the country and funding it with tens of thousands of taxpayer dollars, even as a recent survey of teachers claims none of this is happening. I guess we’re not supposed to believe our lying eyes.… Continue reading Critical Race Theory: You’re being lied to by teachers and the mainstream media, it’s coming to a classroom near you whether you like it or not
Racism is real: What can we do about it?
For argument’s sake, let’s assume that everything the Critical Race Theorists and their anti-racist allies claim about institutional racism in America is true. The question is whether or not their goal of establishing a new racial hierarchy with white people on the bottom would truly solve the problem. Hint: It won’t. For argument’s sake, let’s… Continue reading Racism is real: What can we do about it?
The woke can’t even stand the woke, but that’s not even the worst part of what’s coming
Lin-Manuel Miranda prostrating himself before the woke crowd for not being woke enough is this week’s entertaining aside, but the real fight is over the nature of truth and traditional liberal values like equality before the law, free speech, and the free exchange of ideas. The battle lines are being drawn and the mainstream media… Continue reading The woke can’t even stand the woke, but that’s not even the worst part of what’s coming
Honest question: Is there anything you can’t say about white people?
A lecture at Yale University claims white people are psychopaths and demented, violent predators, fantasizes about shooting them in the head, and concludes that no good white people exist on the planet. Yes, that Yale University. It gets better: The speaker also believes white people don’t eat bread. What could possibly explain this madness? “This… Continue reading Honest question: Is there anything you can’t say about white people?
Critical Race Theory: Coming to a school near you, though the courts might have something to say about it
The battle over CRT in classrooms is underway in at least 20 states and the Federal Government is now involved, using funds from coronavirus relief for anti-racist training of all things.

Can the mythical middle win the war against the woke? Tyler Perry and Tulsi Gabbard speak out!
“We’re demonizing white people for being born,” a private school principal lets the truth slip out, while Mr. Perry steals the Oscars and Ms. Gabbard trends on Facebook. Will speech be enough however? It’s also time to consider using the courts: Discrimination doesn’t have a color, demonizing kids for being born is wrong and likely… Continue reading Can the mythical middle win the war against the woke? Tyler Perry and Tulsi Gabbard speak out!
Anti-racism: What if I’ve done the work and still disagree?
A few honest, good faith thoughts on the root cause of racial disparities and the potential room for disagreement in a world increasingly polarized on topics of race and equity. Where do we go from here? As far as the average person goes, I consider myself pretty well read and well informed. I’ve studied the… Continue reading Anti-racism: What if I’ve done the work and still disagree?
Unprovable accusations: Whatever happened to basic fairness and objectivity?
From Buckingham Palace to The Bachelor, claims of rampant institutional racism abound with no means to verify or resolve them and little ability to mount a defense. Imagine, for a moment, if we treated real crimes this way... Buckingham Palace is a hotbed of racism. The Bachelor and Bachelorette exploit rather than protect people of… Continue reading Unprovable accusations: Whatever happened to basic fairness and objectivity?
Cashing in on Anti-Racism
The billions we’re spending on ineffective diversity and anti-racism training is just the marketing and public relations campaign before the real dollars start flowing for woke union workers and guaranteed government goods in the name of equity.
