Thomas Sowell: Black And White, Left And Right

A deeper look at politics and race.   Much is made of the fact that liberals and conservatives see racial issues differently, which they do. But these differences have too often been seen as simply those on the right being racist and those on the left not. You can cherry-pick the evidence to reach that conclusion. But you can also cherry-pick the evidence ... MORE

Thomas Sowell: Attacking the Truth: Part II

Merely applying the laws.       The case currently before the U.S. Supreme Court, involving racial double standards in admissions to the University of Texas at Austin, has an Alice-in-Wonderland quality that has been all too common in other Supreme Court cases involving affirmative action in academia, going all the way back to 1978.

Walter E Williams: Liberals' Use Of Black People - Part II

She is blocked in. She cannot move. And yet she is killed by heavily armed security officers. Her one-year old child witnesses  ... MORE

Victor Davis Hanson: Hate Thought

Self-appointed liberal referees will decide.   When do insensitive words destroy reputations? It all depends. Celebrity chef Paula Deen was dropped by her TV network, her publisher and many of her corporate partners after she testified in a legal deposition that she used the N-word some 30 years ago. The deposition was filed in a lawsuit against  ... MORE

Walter E. Williams: Racial Double Standards

Double standards now accepted as politically correct. Back in 2009, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said we were "a nation of cowards" on matters of race. Permit me to be brave and run a few assertions by you just to see whether we're on the same page. There should be two standards for civilized conduct: one for whites,  ... MORE
