is

Whenever you hear a liberal politician talk about race these days, it’s a pretty safe bet that they’re not doing so in the context of issues like unemployment, inner-city violence, education, and the make-up of the American family – you know, discussions that could actually benefit minority communities. No, they’re typically just accusing Republicans and…

What would Martin Luther King think? What would Martin Luther King say? What would Martin Luther King do? Those are the kinds of questions we often hear tossed around by media personalities anytime our country recognizes an important anniversary pertaining to the iconic civil rights leader.

Every time I turn around, someone is calling me a racist.  A Facebook “friend” constantly ranted about the tea party people, calling them racists because they disagreed with our President.  Not being a tea party member, but agreeing with a lot of what they’re about, I “unfriended” her after I got sick and tired of…

So I’m reading the op-eds in the Sunday New York Times and the headline catches my eye:  “What’s Race Got to Do With It?”  I roll my eyes and say to myself, Here we go again. The column is by Lee Siegel, an opinion writer of the liberal persuasion, whose main point is – and…
