Trump’s Bizarre Theory

“Trump’s theory is, apparently, that anyone can get any judge disqualified for ‘conflict of interest’ just by saying things that the judge finds offensive enough,” Volokh wrote. “Don’t like the Jewish judge on your case? Say things that are critical of Jews, and now the judge presumably has to step aside because of a conflict of interest. Don’t like the female judge? Say things that women tend to find offensive. Don’t like the judge who was a Republican activist? Say nasty things about Republicans.”

“For obvious reasons, that is not the law, because it can’t be the law. Judges can’t be disqualified from a case because of their ethnicity, or because of their ideology, or because you say things that are offensive to them or their ethnic group.”

No Offense…but…

“Look at my African-American over here.”!!!

I’m going to call the “Clue Clucks Clan” the next time I see one of them at a Trump rally.

I remember back in the day when someone wanted to talk about black people with me, they would start out with, “No offense but, those NIGGERS over there get on my nerves!”

Well, no offense but, if you “identify” as a republican, and actually support a man who isn’t even a republican, nor a conservative, you are just as dumb as he is. In fact, you’re an a$$hole and probably a racist to your ugly, rotten core.

Oh, did I offend you? Oh… I’m not talking about YOU, it’s those people!

Hey folks, enjoy the show. He has no plans on being president and he won’t last long if he wins. He’s in the news every day because the media loves this. He’s truly entertaining.


James Baldwin Debates William F. Buckley – 1965

One thing I’d love to do over the next few years is to be a moderator of a series of debates. I love intellectual challenges and enjoy hearing different points of view. It would be great to get public intellectuals with various points of view in a room and find out where there might be common ground.

It’s sad that in 2016 public discourse has turned into shouting matches.

Take some time out and check out this debate. It is a classic, and it is fascinating.


War on Boys

What ever happened to letting “boys be boys?” Take these two cases: In one, a seven-year-old boy was sent home for nibbling a Pop Tart into a gun. In another, a teacher was so alarmed by a picture drawn by a student (of a sword fight), that the boy’s parents were summoned in for a conference. In short, boys in America’s schools are routinely punished for being active, competitive, and restless. In other words, boys can no longer be boys. Christina Hoff Sommers, a scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, explains how we can change this.

The Other Side of the College Sexual Assault Crisis

  And excerpt from the cover story in Newsweek:   Colleges have recently ramped up their investigation of sexual assault accusations because a 19-page letter told them to do so. In 2011, the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil…

Angry feminist attacks Dr Umar Johnson in public

This interesting interaction between Dr Umar Johnson and a feminist in Kansas City was interesting to observe. It also gives us a lot to talk about when it comes to being able to draw a line between advocating for the black family vs. being anti-gay or homophobic.

The discussion is important for black people in terms of helping us to learn what role we as a community can and should play in the debate over women’s rights, gay rights and everything else. Rather than attacking the black community for not being in alignment with whites, it might be best for us to determine our own position.
