The Case Against Reparations: Part 2

From the Right / Larry Elder /

With reparations, there is the issue of who pays. Do African countries owe reparations to Black Americans? After all, Harvard's director of the Hutchins Center for African & African American Research, Henry Louis Gates, wrote that 90% of those enslaved and shipped to the New World were sold by Africans to European slavers. All whites? Only ...Read more

What Left-Wing Educators Don't Teach During 'Black History Month'

From the Right / Larry Elder /

When will Black History Month be ... history?

Apart from the bizarre notion that educators should set aside one month to salute the historical achievements of one race apart from and above the historical achievements of other races, Black History Month appears to omit a lot of Black history.

About slavery, do our mostly left-wing educators ...Read more

If Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Is the Standard, What About Democrat 'Kingmaker' Rev. Al Sharpton?

From the Right / Larry Elder /

Because of offensive tweets posted by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., before she won office, House Democrats joined by 11 Republicans voted to strip her of her committee assignments.

If this is the new standard, can we apply this to the Rev. Al Sharpton, aka a Democratic "kingmaker," whose support was solicited by every major 2020 ...Read more

When did Democrats practice the "civility" to which they wish to return? (second part)

From the Right / Larry Elder /

Last week, we covered the challenge President Joe Biden faces in his supposed quest to return to an era of "civility." Democrats never practiced civility. We listed only some of the race- and Nazi-based insults used for decades by Democrats against the very Republicans with whom they now seek "healing." Here are just a few more examples:

Left-...Read more

When did Democrats practice the "civility" to which they wish to return?

From the Right / Larry Elder /

A 2020 Joe Biden campaign ad described the pending election as an "opportunity to leave the dark, angry politics of the past behind us." After Biden's election, he, Democrats and media urge a "return to civility." But when did the Democrats practice the very civility to which they seek to return?

Let's go to the videotape:

When Barry Goldwater...Read more

Why is my movie, 'Uncle Tom', being blacklisted by Hollywood?

From the Right / Larry Elder /

Actor Ben Affleck once explained why he found it difficult to watch Republican actors on screen. "It's ... hard," explained Affleck, "to get people to suspend disbelief. ... When I watch a guy I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn't like this person if I met him, or we would have different opinions. That (expletive) ...Read more

From the Right / Larry Elder /

Twitter explained why it decided to permanently ban President Donald Trump: "After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them -- specifically how they are being received and interpreted on and off Twitter -- we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of ...Read more

Right-wing conspiracy 'Insane' -- Left-wing conspiracy theories, not so much

From the Right / Larry Elder /

Democrats and much of the Republican-hating media call the Republicans' election challenge dead on arrival and say the effort hurt Republicans in Georgia. If so, why the outrage protestations from the left?

Many of the election fraud allegations made by team Trump have been ignored or downplayed by media sources from which much of America gets ...Read more

Media saves Joe Biden -- just as it saved Barack Obama

From the Right / Larry Elder /

Hunter Biden, President-elect Joe Biden's son, is undergoing a tax investigation by the U.S. Attorney's Office in Delaware concerning Hunter's lucrative work with Burisma, the Ukrainian gas company on whose board Hunter sat, despite a lack of energy experience and the ability to speak Russian or Ukrainian.

Walter Williams could never make the cut in 'Ebony'

From the Right / Larry Elder /

I met economist and professor Walter Williams when I interviewed him while hosting a local TV show in Cleveland. We discussed a number of topics but focused on race-based preferences, aka affirmative action. Williams adamantly opposed it, still an unpopular position to take, but especially back then and especially for a Black person. He calmly ...Read more
