Trump, Landlord from Hell

How was Donald Trump as a businessman? Well, most of his business has been buying and selling real estate. Things he did as a landlord might be indicative of how he treats people and how he might act as president. In 1981, Trump purchased a 14-story building facing Central Park in New York City. His […]

Trump Supporters are Racist

Well, duh. But now we have proof. And I’m reporting it because it is ironic proof. As everyone should know, in a primary you are not voting for a candidate, you’re voting for delegates (picked by the candidate’s campaign, and pledged to vote for the candidate) who go to the convention and actually vote for […]

Walking in their shoes

Important story about how a community organizer who has been protesting police killings of unarmed people (especially blacks), participated in a police training exercise to get a better understanding of the situation: We have a bad tendency in this country that when a few people of a specific group do something really bad, that we […]

Take Back America!

This video from MadTV 20 years ago was satire. Now it seems to be politics as usual. Maybe she could be Trump’s VP?

Can’t Tell The Players Without a Scorecard!

© Adam Zyglis Anyone who thinks our country is not still incredibly racist isn’t paying attention. Either that, or you are so racist yourself that you are clueless as to what is going on. Like this situation, where an heavily armed group takes over a federal building by force and threatens violence. Now imagine the […]

Understanding

© Nick Anderson The artist known as Banksy just unveiled a painting in the refugee camp in Calais, France, depicting Steve Jobs as a Syrian refugee. The elusive artist released a rare statement to go along with the mural: We’re often led to believe migration is a drain on the country’s resources but Steve Jobs […]

Reality-Based Politics

I’ve posted in the past about how efforts to create the conservative Republican utopia have failed miserably – first in Kansas under governor Sam Brownback and then in Wisconsin under Scott Walker. I’ve also posted about how when progressive Democrats took over in California under Jerry Brown and the economy improved dramatically. Could that have […]

Sporting Trump

I’m so sorry, but I can’t help it. If Trump is as smart as he claims to be, how can he write such stupid things. Here’s his Truculent Trump Tweet du Jour: Just to jog his memory, here’s Trump receiving an award from Muhammad Ali: Meanwhile, Trump said he wants to ban all Muslims from […]

Why Do I Bother?

When Seth Meyers does a much better job of exposing the embarrassment that is Donald Trump, using Trump’s own words: I’m wondering if Trumps supporters are finally getting tired of him, or if nothing he says can sway them. When does the next poll come out? UPDATE: Great timing! A new poll just came out, […]

Remains of Racism

There was a recent interesting interview with Civil War historian and filmmaker Ken Burns on Face the Nation where he talks about slavery and racism. Here’s an excerpt from it: He points out that while revisionists claim that the Civil War was about “state’s rights”, the overwhelming evidence shows that it was absolutely about slavery. […]

Playing the Gay Card

Three time former GOP presidential candidate Alan Keyes is delusional. On TV a few days ago, Keyes said that he does not believe the shooting in a black church by a white supremacist was racially motivated. Seriously. Despite the statements of witnesses or the fact that the shooter himself published a racist manifesto online. Keyes […]

Flag this Error

Ann Coulter proved in just one sentence that she is not just hateful, but ignorant. Appearing on Fox Business Network, Coulter talked about efforts to take down the Confederate flag from the South Carolina state capitol, efforts that are supported by the South Carolina governor, Nikki Haley. I’m appalled by––though, I really like to like […]

Responding to Protests

© Tom Tomorrow I think if nothing else, Obama’s presidency has been worth it to highlight both how far we have come, but even more importantly how far we still have to go to end racism. I remember when it first became unfashionable to be racist. When people started using code words instead of being […]
