Trump continues urban outreach

By John Ruberry Yesterday Donald Trump continued his outreach to black and inner city voters by speaking at Great Faith Ministries in Detroit's Barton-McFarland neighborhood.

What Professional Black Leftists Are Hiding

by baldilocks In panning Ta-Nehisi Coates’ open letter to his 15-year-old son, Between the World and Me, Randall Kennedy expresses something which every thinking black American has considered, even those who call themselves liberals. [Coates] insists that behind apparent black racial pathology is the omnipresent reality of white domination—in this instance an act of white supremacy … Continue reading What Professional Black Leftists Are Hiding

Where are the protests? Murders jumped in Buffalo in 2014

By John Ruberry One of the slogans of the anti-police protesters is "Black lives matter." By the way, I don't know anyone who thinks otherwise. As I wrote in this space last week, I have doubts about the real motivation of the anti-cop movement, which I view as a proxy for the real fight of leftists--socialist … Continue reading Where are the protests? Murders jumped in Buffalo in 2014

Pieces of the Dream

by baldilocks I'm guilty of many things, but one is talking about race and Things Black too much. The reputational demise of public astrophysicist Neil Degrasse Tyson elicited a great deal of Schadenfreude, but it depressed me for one reason: I liked seeing a black person talk about something other than race, being black, or … Continue reading Pieces of the Dream

Anyone who maintains that abortion is a service to the poor needs to read this story out of NY: Pro-aborts from NARAL, Planned Parenthood, and the rest of the abortion industry accused us of “targeting minorities,” “preying upon women,” and “endangering women’s right to choose.” They expressed outrage that we open our clinics in the … Continue reading Over 900,000 abortions in NYC in the last decade, Minorities hardest hit

DaScienceGuy looks at the evidence…

...and finds the neighborhood wanting: Here is the part to me that says something about us societally. Obviously multiple gun shots. Just look at the number of dead people. NO ONE CALLED THE COPS. The police were alerted by a device called Shot Spotter. If it weren’t for the technology how long might it have … Continue reading DaScienceGuy looks at the evidence…
