Gun Rights or Gun Whites?

© Matt Bors I’ve noticed that reasoning — “he had a gun” used as an excuse for the police shooting someone (even to the point of police planting a gun on a dead person). So if that is considered a good reason for the police to shoot someone, then how can the NRA keep telling […]

Slavery and the Civil War

Those of us who have lived in the south have seen in person that some people there are still fighting the civil war. They think that losing the actual war was a temporary setback that they will someday overcome. It has almost turned into a religious war, which is why the KKK had such religious […]

Reality is Strange

© Tom Tomorrow While it is true that the world is a better place than it has ever been in the past, it is still sad to think that we are doomed to continue fighting racism, sexism, and other forms of bigotry and intolerance for a long time.

The Hypocrisy of the NRA

The National Rifle Association usually doesn’t mince words when defending the right of Americans to arm themselves. But we now have a case where a person, legally licensed to carry a concealed weapon, was stopped by the police for a broken taillight. He informed the officer that he had a firearm. The officer asked him […]

The New Newt?

The most pleasantly surprising response to the recent racial tensions came from Newt Gingrich, while he was participating in a Facebook live chat: It took me a long time, and a number of people talking to me through the years to get a sense of this. If you are a normal, white American, the truth […]

Reaping what we Sow

It is time for people to stop hating and arguing against each other and realize that neither side has exclusive rights to the truth. Being a policeman is a tough job, and a dangerous job. Mistakes will happen. Most police deserve our respect and admiration. But a few police are criminals and should be removed […]

Trump goes into Siege Mode?

Donald Trump is going off the deep end over the whole Trump University scandal and lawsuit. As if calling the judge in two of the cases against Trump U “a hater” and saying that the judge should be removed from the case because “he’s a Mexican” isn’t bad enough. First of all, the judge is […]

Racists, Bigots, and Trump

There are many theories of why people support Donald Trump. One theory is that the voters are angry and hate the political establishment. Middle class workers have been hurt by the economy and are desperate to find someone who can shake things up. Or at least stand up to the special interests who are sucking […]

White Entitlement?

I’ve been having conversations recently with Bernie Sanders supporters and have felt a kind of desperation coming from them. Like if Sanders doesn’t win (and most of them are still holding out hope for that unlikely outcome) they will be very depressed or angry. Some are saying that they plan to vote for Trump if […]

The Good Old Days

Do you remember the “good old days” that Donald Trump speaks about? I do. If that’s what Trump supporters hanker after, I want nothing to do with it.

Politically Correct?

I’m not totally sure if I agree with what this is saying, but it is true that it is politically correct to not say racist things in public. But I really posted it because it is funny.

Voting Against Their Own Interests?

The New York Daily News (yeah, I know) has an interesting article, where they interviewed some Trump supporters. But these weren’t regular Trump supporters, they are members of groups that tend to not like Trump very much. Americans like women, Muslims, Blacks, Asians, Mexicans, and from India. People who have been insulted by Trump in […]

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 […]
