'Borderland' personalizes immigration, border security

image thumbnail - see full story for attributionsVideo
With True/Slant in its final days, I've decided to forego the sentimental (at least for now), and share a few more pieces with readers before the lights are turned off. Of the dozens of would-be posts in my publishing queue (and there are many), I've been wanting to post this [...]

Hip-hop promotes poverty? No, no y'all

image thumbnail - see full story for attributions
Since its inception, hip-hop has endured endless attacks – typically, but not always, wrongheaded – mostly because of references to violence and for celebrating a culture that devalues women. When a wealthy, white radio host used a derogatory term to describe members of the Rutgers women’s basketball team, other wealthy, [...]

Bust narco-traffickers, not Arizona's maids

image thumbnail - see full story for attributions
Arizona, where I live, has become ground zero in one of the most divisive issues of our day: immigration. There are two reasons for this unfortunate distinction. On the surface, the element that gave the issue traction here was passage of SB1070. The new law, which is due to go into [...]

Will the Sherrod and ACORN affairs finally help the Dems get a pair?

Everyone now knows that Department of Agriculture employee Sheryl Sherrod was unjustly forced to resign and vilified as a "reverse racist" by the Obama Administration and even the NAACP.  Ms. Sherrod, who is Black,  was filmed giving a speech at an NAACP banquet in March where she recounted how her [...]

Palin doubles down on mosque bigotry

Sarah Palin is doubling down on bigotry, with yet another Facebook post that brushes aside minor issues like tolerance and openness to get to what she really wants to say: Muslims shouldn’t have the same constitutional rights as other Americans.

Why conservatives should agree to shutting down the US Commission on Civil Rights

Adam Serwer has a great article up at the American Prospect reflecting on the role being played by the US Commission on Civil Rights in the risible 'New Black Panther Party' case that I blogged about a year ago when no one was paying attention. The testimony taken by the [...]

In response to Norma Lopez and 'Missing White Woman Syndrome'
  • Yet a-holes like Lindsay Lohan get tons of press. I think many people, including editors, don't care much. Crime rarely touches journalists personally so it's not something they identify with.read » T/S CAITLIN KELLY

Norma Lopez and 'Missing White Woman Syndrome'

image thumbnail - see full story for attributions
When 7-year-old Kyron Horman went missing from his Portland, Ore. school early last month, news outlets ranging from blogs to newspapers to TV stations raced to cover the story. His name quickly climbed up most-searched term lists and People magazine has been relentless in its documentation of each break in the [...]

Lessons from Mel Gibson's rage

image thumbnail - see full story for attributions
Hatred is corrosive, it almost always hurts the hater. While you don't always see it, sometimes the foundation of someone's character can get so worn away that the person's facade cracks and falls: like Mel Gibson. The story of his well-documented flame-out into a hate-filled, abusive former movie-star would benefit [...]

The 'mega-mosque' hate video rejected by TV

From the National Republican Trust Political Action Committee, this is the advertisement that was rejected by NBC and CBS. The fear mongering is so completely over the top in this little piece of hate propaganda, there’s not much to say about it. I’ll just point out that contrary to what the [...]

California and the case against affirmative action

image thumbnail - see full story for attributions
The best thing that can or should be said about Affirmative Action is what the Democratic civil rights champion Sammy Davis Jr. purportedly said when asked why he hugged Richard Nixon at a 1970 Republican fundraiser: “It seemed like a good idea at the time.” Why not fight racism with reverse [...]
