Free Speech Threatens Minorities at Universities – Yet Again

If you only read or listen to mainstream media, you would be unaware of the latest outrage on an esteemed American university campus. Threats to free speech that come from the left of political center conflict with the accepted narrative with which mainstream media is most comfortable, and therefore are overlooked. If it weren’t for…

USA, We’ve Got a Problem

I am back to the college and university campuses of my first blog where I find the chances have dwindled for opening the minds of our youth (i.e. future leaders(?) of America), and resolving our social problems via dialogue. The fear is spreading. Offering a viewpoint that differs from the increasingly constricted narrative of social…

The President and I Have This in Common

On Saturday, April 23rd, President Obama called out Black Lives Matter by saying you “can’t just keep on yelling” about issues it wants to change. This was reported in the New York Daily News on April 24th in an article by Jason Silverstein. He went on to quote President Obama: “Once you’ve highlighted an issue…

Imagine the View From the Other Side

In writing The Color of Character, I tried to show how race relations are not so black and white. Certainly, the original sin of racism – of one race believing itself to be superior to another –  lies squarely on the backs of the white race. But the way to progress on the march towards…

Three black female students at the State University of New York (SUNY) in Albany  created a maelstrom, when they claimed they were the victims of a racist attack by white men and women on a bus on January 30th. Soon, the well-meaning community at SUNY held a rally in defense of the black women. The…

I’m so pleased to attach a link to a performance by The Maccabeats and Naturally 7 on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial to honor Dr. Martin Luther King. There is the obvious satisfaction in seeing in perfect harmony (pun intended), Jews and blacks (assumed to be non-Jews in this instance, although not necessarily), two…

Should David Lynch be Allowed to Direct Movies Anymore?

Racism is serious. It’s real. If you’ve read The Color of Character or my blog posts, you know it’s on my mind, and something I would like to see diminished, at the very least, even if it can’t be totally eliminated. It will take rational people, interacting rationally. There are many discussions about racism on…

More to be Outraged About

The recent shooting of Laquan McDonald has anyone who has seen the video disturbed. It is difficult to find a reason why after one bullet to the shoulder brought the young man to the ground, it was necessary to fire any more shots. Knife or no knife, had Officer Van Dyke held his fire after…

Honesty at Your Own Risk

Until the problem of urban black crime perpetrated on whites as well as blacks is acknowledged, let alone ameliorated, we will not uncover some of the reasons for segregation, and the belief by many whites that blacks make our cities, schools, neighborhoods, and even our own blocks unsafe. We will continue to see whites resist efforts to put…
