Justice Clarence and Ginni Thomas: Modern Day Heroes

 

If anyone doubts whether we still have hateful racists in this country, we only need to listen to the words and study the actions of the political Left. Everything they demand of Americans in terms of equality, everything they purport to condemn such as racism, every idea that they celebrate about fairness and equity has been negated by their own lies and contradictions.

Justice Clarence Thomas and his wife of 35 years, Ginni Thomas, are the epitome of opportunity and pursuit of freedom in the United States of America, and if the political Left were not determined to misrepresent the Left’s political goals for this country, the Thomas’ would be their celebrated couple.

What Lives Don’t Matter?

 

My progressive Christian relatives tell me that she is happy in the liberal world. (God convicted her when she was a prideful conservative reminding her that liberal means generous). Abortion is not the only issue, she says.

True enough. And I wish the issue was as simple as saying we on the Christian right will work on the abortion thing while you on the Christian left deal with the racism thing. But it isn’t that tidy.

Kenny Xu, author of An Inconvenient Minority: The Attack on Asian American Excellence and the Fight for Meritocracy and the president of Color Us United, joins the podcast to discuss whether Harvard discriminates against Asian applicants in its admissions process (a case about which will soon be considered before the Supreme Court). They also cover related issues about race in America.

Everything in the BLM movement calls on whites to change, to pay reparations, to examine themselves, and to accuse themselves of wrong doing.  Only if whites do this, according to BLM, along with more favoritism in hiring and college admissions, will black and brown people be saved.  BLM seems to say that the way things […]

Othering Your White Uncle Was Just the Beginning

 

I nominate Matthew Boose’s article, Apologize to Your ‘Racist Uncle,’ for Post of the Counter-Revolutionary Moment. Some hard and tragic truths are spoken here:

“But nobody defended him. After all, he didn’t go to college. He never worked at a think tank. He wasn’t an expert. He watched Bill O’Reilly. What did he know about politics? Political correctness, he failed to understand, was about decency, not control. “Reverse racism” was incoherent; you can’t discriminate against white people! Your uncle didn’t understand how racial hegemony works. He hadn’t read Angela Davis (or a facsimile of a facsimile of Angela Davis, anyway). He was just uninformed, or maybe he was just selfish. He was afraid of losing his advantages. He was irrationally afraid of Muslims and Hispanic immigrants. He bought a gun to compensate for his insecurities. He was the butt of every comedian’s joke, a stereotype of ignorance and hatred.

https://victorygirlsblog.com/you-might-be-a-racist-if/ It is a commonplace to observe that Democrats, and leftists generally, regard anything of which they disapprove as racist.  I’m surprised to see so few attempts on the part of conservatives to turn the tables on the leftists.  Here is my list:  You might be a racist if you … Preview Open

I Didn’t Have White Privilege Growing Up in Inglewood

It took thirty years to build the Century Freeway (later named the 105) that cut through Inglewood on the way to the Los Angeles Airport. Three governors, including Ronald Reagan, toured the site. In the interim between the planning and completion, the 119th block, a few blocks from my house, was purchased and made into low income housing. Suddenly, we were integrated. Not just black and white. But those who successfully lived through the horrors of the depression and World War II and set out to make a new, prosperous life in the tract-house suburbs of the early 1960’s and those of single-woman families on welfare in the projects.

What’s Wrong With This Picture?

 

This screenshot is from The New York Times website on April 25, 2019. It was nestled among other stories. So, how do you think this lede got by the brain of the person who posted it alongside this photograph? Really?

You are looking at the school principal. Look at her. Now read the last sentence of the summary, intended to induce you to click and read more. “The dress code has been criticized as racist and elitist.” Roll that around your tongue. Swish to get all the flavor notes.

Consider the description of the clothing banned. Does it really describe poor white garb, rather than poor black or Latino? Think for just a moment.

The Important Thing to Remember About Sarah Jeong

 

Sarah Jeong has written a lot of hateful, bigoted, racist things. She has a deep-seated animus toward white people in general and white men in particular. “[T]he world could get by just fine with zero white ppl,” she has written. “Let’s fund a study on whether killing all the white people would make black people safer,” she has suggested. “”Are white people genetically predisposed to burn faster in the sun, thus logically being only fit to live underground like groveling goblins,” she said. There are literally hundreds of similar statements. The New York Times looked over this woman’s body of work and decided that “this is exactly the kind of person we need on our editorial board.”

The important thing to remember, though, is that neither Sarah Jeong nor the Editorial Board of the New York Times represents the majority of Americans. Outside of the boardrooms and faculty lounges, most Americans are not obsessed with race, do not hate other people based on race, and just want to get along with one another.
