Duke professor post racial comments online and is put on leave…is this fair?

Wle often hear people say after every racial incident that we need to have a national conversation on race, but what does that really men? When you have a honest conversation on anything often people get their feelings hurt. Are we mature enough to handle the truth? A Duke professor, Jerry Hough is on leave for posting some racial comments on a NYT article. His comments are his personal opinion. I find them offensive but is racist the right description?

Bill Maher and Killer Mike a lethal and Dangerous Duel


NOTE:CLIP CONTAINS PROFANITY
Last night Bill Maher and his guest Killer Mike discussed the Baltimore riots and Killer Mike justified the burning of the CVS and the other unrest. He basically said the residents of the community felt no sense of ownership so they weren’t burning their own community because they really felt no sense of community. He also said that the CVS that was burned did not employ people within the community. Keep in mind that Killer Mike is a resident of Atlanta so I don’t know where he gets his facts from but i do know that his arguments don’t justify the fire or the riots. We have a right to protest wrongdoing but we don’t have a right or a justification for illegal activity and we have to say that. Maher and Killer Mike also took some shots at Bill O’Reilly. After listening to the exchange one is led to believe Killer was invited for comic relief.

Politicians Lie, Journalists Lie so why is it news when they are caught lying?

George Stephanopoulos is in hot water for not disclosing that he has contributed $75,000 to the Clinton Foundation. he is guilty of the sin of omission. So members of the GOP say Stephanopoulos is not fit for the presidential debates but is a donation a disqualifier? If he had made the disclosure on his own would it have made a difference?

Nike Law Enforcement Appreciation Day triggers boycott

Yesterday Nike offered 30% off merchandise to members of law enforcement. Some on Twitter were outraged. Many including Black Lives Matter felt in light of the Freddie Gray case and others this was a slap in the face, but is it fair to paint all police with the same brush? When we do this aren’t we doing what we claim the police do? Some are calling for a boycott. Read the linked article and share your thoughts.

Michelle Obama is no Angry Black Woman…she is simply telling the truth

We are all a product of our experiences and we often share it with the people in our circle. When you are the First Lady your circle is much bigger. Mrs. Obama is coming under fire from the right for sharing her experiences with racism. She was speaking to a majority black audience who identified with her narrative. She was passionate as she shared her life story, but that passion is being misidentified as anger. This is so familiar to so many of us. too often when a black woman shows passion she is called angry or intimidating, but when her white counterpart reacts the same way she is showing passion and confidence. The Obamas are nearing the end of their tenure in the White House and they are feeling a new sense of freedom. They are now speaking frankly about race the third rail. The movie A Few Good Men had a line I am going to paraphrase some on the right simply can’t handle the truth.
