White Supremacists Massacres

Tuesday, December 17th, 2019

Too often I hear “I never learned this” or “I never learned that in a history class.” First, people in general don’t want to hear the tales of Kings, Conquerors, Psychopaths from their own history. They prefer a “cleaned up” version. In the case of the United States, most prefer the Whitewashed version. Unfortunately, that […]

Fascism Builds Brick by Brick

Wednesday, August 1st, 2018

This is how fascism builds. Brick by Brick. Lies about foreigners taking over your country. Lies about how we need more control. Fake solutions to fake problems. Crowds cheering for fake solutions to problems. Demagogues burned down democracy. “You know if you go out and you want to buy groceries you need a picture on […]

Roy Moore’s Conservative Values

Friday, December 15th, 2017

Tuesday sure was exciting.  Doug Jones won a US Senate seat in the “Red State” of Alabama as a Democrat.  His opponent, Roy Moore, had the backing of President Donald Trump.  Moore also claimed to have the backing of God, but after his loss, I’m not so sure.  What could possibly have gone wrong? Much […]

DuBois in Paris 1900

Saturday, October 28th, 2017

Incredible story of scholarship and activism. “Since he became the first African American to receive a doctorate from Harvard, Du Bois had amassed a formidable set of statistics on the socioeconomic plight of black people in America in the decades since the transition from enslavement to freedom. But Du Bois had one pressing problem: How […]

My Presidents vs Not My Presidents

Friday, August 18th, 2017

Since people have a hard time understanding honor, let me offer this. Not all men are perfect. We know this. The question is simple: “Did they move America forward, or did they try to take it back?” I honor the men and women who made us a “more perfect union,” not the men and women […]

CSA Constitution

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

The CSA Constitution left most of the USA Constitution intact, including the supremacy clause. What did it change? 1) It invoked the favor of Almighty God (I guess He decided He preferred the USA). 2) It eliminated all reference to the “common” good or “general welfare.” 3) It created rights for slave owners. _____ Congress […]

“no institutional racism”?

Wednesday, October 5th, 2016

Don’t worry folks. Mike Pence told us there is no institutional racism in the American Justice System. These are not the droids you’re looking for. Under Texas law, a jury cannot sentence a defendant to death unless it unanimously concludes he poses a future danger. During the sentencing phase of the trial, Duane Buck’s own […]

Don’t Accept False Choices

Friday, September 23rd, 2016

Overt racism, sexism and bigotry were banished from polite society decades ago. Trump calls that banishment “PC.” The vast majority of Americans understand the threat to civil society caused by subtle discrimination. The white power movement wants a race war to push Trump over the top and “Take America Back.” Stand for justice. Anyone who […]

I will fear no evil

Friday, July 15th, 2016

If Newt isn’t a racist, why is his first response always racist? Is he just pretending to be a racist to win power and glory? “We should frankly test every person here who is of a Muslim background, and if they believe in Sharia, they should be deported. Sharia is incompatible with Western civilization.” I […]
