Dilbert is done, but let’s not pretend Scott Adams wasn’t reacting to a disturbing development

The media would rather shoot the messenger, however inartful or incendiary, than acknowledge the troubling reality that race relations in the United States have gotten far worse since Critical Race Theory, intersectionality, and the woke mentality went mainstream ten years ago. Last week the creator of Dilbert, a popular comic strip skewering life in the… Continue reading Dilbert is done, but let’s not pretend Scott Adams wasn’t reacting to a disturbing development

What’s wrong with the kids today, revisited?

The data couldn’t be more stark.  Over the past ten years, teenagers are more depressed, more prone to thoughts of suicide, and more likely to attempt ending their own life.  Some think smart phones and social media are to blame, but I believe the problem goes much deeper and starts much earlier with the culture… Continue reading What’s wrong with the kids today, revisited?

The war on white apparently includes the word itself

Roald Dahl’s classic children’s books including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and James and the Giant Peach recently received a woke makeover that included the removal of the word “white” in instances completely unrelated to race or ethnicity.  Is the color itself suddenly problematic? Last week, The Telegraph reported that Puffin, a division of Penguin… Continue reading The war on white apparently includes the word itself

Bill Maher, Teddy Roosevelt, and the fear of progress in race relations

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

Black white supremacy goes mainstream in less than a month

The killing of Tyre Nichols at the hands of five black police officers is proof enough for progressives that white supremacy is now colorblind, afflicting black as well as white. Policing in its entirety is now a racist endeavor, apparently due to a mind virus of some kind. Earlier this year, progressives expanded the definition… Continue reading Black white supremacy goes mainstream in less than a month

Fantasy games and literature: The woke crusade against the genre continues

A recent article in Harper’s Bazaar concludes that fantasy has become a “stronghold for white supremacy,” starting with the work of J.R.R Tolkien, which can be reduced to “the story of white men reclaiming their world.”  This is a radical retelling of an incredibly complex genre, requiring the erasure of seminal fantasy authors such as… Continue reading Fantasy games and literature: The woke crusade against the genre continues

Jackie Robinson: Never take his name in vain

They’d never suspend a black player for poking fun at a white player for comparing himself to Babe Ruth.  Unless Major League Baseball plans to ban trash talk in general, what’s the difference here? Last weekend, the New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox were enmeshed in a bases clearing incident over comments made between… Continue reading Jackie Robinson: Never take his name in vain

Electric cars, inflation, and abortion rights: The everything is racist saga continues, as some say a Civil War is coming

Racism in America is apparently so rampant that everything we do and touch must be seen through that lens. In the past week, the mainstream media has covered everything from electric cars to inflation with abortion in between as a potentially racist issue. They’ve also found a new solution: Conservatives should just surrender and embrace… Continue reading Electric cars, inflation, and abortion rights: The everything is racist saga continues, as some say a Civil War is 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?

Senator Tim Scott prompts the question that many liberals refuse to fully answer for obvious reasons

Whether or not America is a racist country shouldn’t be a difficult question, especially when we live in an age where progressives continually repeat the mantra of “systemic racism” and “white supremacy” for everything from police violence to coronavirus. Well, which is it? Is America a racist country?  It’s a pretty simple question, but don’t… Continue reading Senator Tim Scott prompts the question that many liberals refuse to fully answer for obvious reasons
