Shakespeare: Is there at least one dead white dude worthy of redemption?

Despite calls to cancel the Bard, NPR reports that black theater actors and directors are adapting Shakespeare’s plays in innovative new productions and interpretations, taking their place in a long, storied history of performances and a worldwide legacy that embraces all ethnicities.   Earlier this year, a movement was afoot to cancel, or at least greatly… Continue reading Shakespeare: Is there at least one dead white dude worthy of redemption?

Intersectionality is the Communist rallying cry “Workers of the World Unite” by another name

A brief history of the common themes between the original Communist Manifesto and today’s intersectionality and Critical Race Theory.  The same theories and the same policies repackaged for a modern audience will lead to a similarly disastrous result, which is exactly why proponents of these destructive ideas continue to lie about them. In their infamous… Continue reading Intersectionality is the Communist rallying cry “Workers of the World Unite” by another name

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

The odd way some liberals celebrate the Fourth of July

A former Senator, a current Congresswoman, a publicly funded media outlet, and an out of control activist all take aim at Independence Day and our Founding documents.  Instead of celebrating America, they insist on bashing it.  Can’t we just have a single day where America is great before we get back into our partisan corners?… Continue reading The odd way some liberals celebrate the Fourth of July

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.  In the meantime, the courts weighed in on provisions in the same coronavirus package to distribute restaurant relief based on ethnicity and it did… Continue reading Critical Race Theory: Coming to a school near you, though the courts might have something to say about it

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?
