When It Comes to the Debate on Racism, Both Liberals and Conservatives Get it Wrong

I have to confess, I absolutely loathe talking about racism. Not because it’s not a topic that needs to be discussed, but because most people really don’t want to have an honest conversation about it. What most people want to do nowadays is simply prove that the other side is wrong. It’s not really about […]

No, a Black Man in Michigan Was Not Racially Profiled by the Police Just for Walking with His Hands in His Pockets

While many liberal and conservative websites have devoted a large part of the last week covering the events that have gone on in Ferguson, liberal websites in particular have had a field day pushing just about any kind of anti-cop “story” that they can get their hands on. There are certainly legitimate stories related to Ferguson, […]

The Christian Right Weekly Round-Up: Pastor Pillow Pulpit Special: FERGUSON

Every once in a while I rip off my Scooby-Doo villain mask and address you not as Pastor Pillow, Chief Pastoral Officer (CPO) of the billion-dollar Cubic Zirconium Ministries empire, but as myself. Pastor Pillow is satire—although for those of us who grew up in right-wing Evangelical circles, the verbal cartoon hits pretty close to […]

Fox News’ Eric Bolling and Geraldo Have Epic Battle Over Ebola: ‘You’re Playing the Race Card’ (Video)

Unless you’ve been living under a rock the last couple of weeks, you’ve heard the news that the United States saw the first case of Ebola diagnosed within our borders. And I’ll admit, when I first heard this news I was a bit alarmed. Especially considering the patient in question, Thomas Duncan, was being kept […]

Hillary Clinton Finally Spoke Out on Ferguson and What She Said Was Absolutely Brilliant

For nearly three weeks, people from both sides of the political spectrum have asked, “Where’s Hillary Clinton’s comments on Ferguson?” Which is to be expected. She’s a very prominent public figure and likely 2016 presidential candidate (and probable winner). So, naturally, people wanted to know what she had to say. But, alas, it was nearly […]

Protests, Tear Gas, Riots and Looting: It’s Been Absolute Chaos in Ferguson

I’m going to once again attempt to write about Ferguson, Missouri.  Though I’ll be honest with you, I’m not at all sure where this piece might end up once I’m finished with it.  Because out of all the topics I’ve covered in my time writing, this one has honestly exhausted me. What can anyone really […]

Al Sharpton’s Seemingly Selfish Agenda Helps Nobody But Himself

I’m sorry, but I’ve absolutely had it with Al Sharpton.  I’m sick and tired of every time there’s some kind of incident that could be a racial tragedy, he swoops in to try to get his face on the camera somewhere. I don’t think he’s really trying to help solve these potential racial injustices.  I […]

Justin Bieber vs. Richard Sherman: The Great American Cultural Hypocrisy

An interesting thing happened today – Justin Bieber was arrested for allegedly driving while drunk, driving with an expired license, drag racing and resisting arrest. Oh, and he’s only 19-years-old which, as most of you know, is below the legal age to drink alcohol.  Not to mention that according to police reports he admitted to smoking […]

Seattle Seahawks Player Richard Sherman Unexpectedly Taught Me a Lesson About Americans

I, like millions of others, watched football this past Sunday.  It’s the NFL playoffs so you can expect things to get intense, especially when teams are one win away from the Super Bowl. Well, at the conclusion of the Seattle Seahawks vs. San Francisco 49ers game, Fox Sports’ Erin Andrews attempted to interview Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman. […]

President Obama: ‘Some Folks Don’t Like the Idea of a Black President’

I’ve argued for a while now that in politics we need more “blunt moments.”  The problem is, as much as Americans say they want honesty, they really don’t. Just look at the way we dissect everything these politicians say.  If one wrong word is used, the media is all over them and the American public is […]
