In the last presidential election, the Democratic candidate for president, Hillary Clinton, dismissed the white American working class as the “Trump deplorables,” “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic – you name it.” Now Nancy Pelosi wants the House of Representatives to censure President Trump for sticking up for America and its white core population.

The issue of reparations for black slavery got an airing in Congress last week, curiously coinciding with renewed Main Stream Media drumbeating for the white-guilting Central Park Five Rape Hoax. I discuss reparations below, but first a word about an obviously-related news item that doesn’t seem to be getting any drumbeating at all. A 23-year-old... Read More

Today all manner of curiosities, as I once called them, propose that whites pay reparations for slavery. For example, our Democratic presidential candidates. Well, I am joining them. Yes. I am for reparations. It is only just. Once I lived in moral darkness, and thought reparations was crazy as Aunt Sally, that we kept in... Read More
Having embraced "Medicare-for-all," free college tuition and a Green New Deal that would mandate an early end of all oil, gas and coal-fired power plants, the Democratic Party's lurch to the left rolls on. Presidential candidates Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren both called last week for race-based reparations for slavery. "Centuries of slavery, Jim Crow,... Read More
Fred Awaits Acclamation from Grateful Nation
While grazing hither and yon around the glades of the internet, I stumbled on the Reverend Al Sharpton, who was demanding reparations for slavery. He was against slavery, I divined, and wanted money. I could hardly blame him, as I too want money. In truth, I confess that in the past I have written harshly... Read More
Maybe Some Things Aren't Somebody Else's Fault
I discovered recently in the Washington Post that a group of black lawyers, to include with the predictability of gravitation Johnny Cochran, is planning to sue for reparations for, sigh, slavery. Blacks want more money (I could stop the sentence here) from me and my children. Sometimes I feel like an udder. The case for... Read More
It must have been a tough decision for the editors of the Washington Post last week whether to lead on page one with the return of baseball to the District of Columbia or the story about the demonstration in Annapolis to acknowledge white guilt for slavery. As it turned out, the editors went with baseball,... Read More
Ever since September 11, 2001, the burning issue of reparations for slavery has flickered rather dimly. Now, thanks to blackneoconservative Senate candidate Alan Keyes, it may flare again. All by himself Mr. Keyes has added gas to the reparations flames in his race for the U.S. Senate in Illinois. Mr. Keyes is probably not going... Read More
Six months of putting aside partisanism and petty bickering to stand up against the country's enemies is quite enough, it seems. In the last week of March, the first lawsuit claiming reparations for slavery was launched in court, and it's entirely clear that the acrid taste for racial revenge (and racial booty) has now dispelled...

By the most curious of coincidences, just as the United Nations' pompously titled "World Conference on Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance" was about to leap from the earth in Durban, South Africa, the issue of "reparations for slavery" enjoyed a renaissance in the United States. First, Newsweek devoted a large portion of its... Read More
When South Carolina lawmakers voted last year to remove the Confederate Battle Flag over the state capitol in what then was termed a "compromise," there may have been some who really believed it would help pacify the racial-cultural revolution the attack on the flag represented. If that's what they thought, they were wrong, because Phase... Read More
Sells Out To Johnny Cochran
I see by the papers in the Yankee Capital that Johnny Cochran, and of course Jesse and Al, are wheezing and blowing like a county-fair calliope with a leaky boiler. They always are. This time it was about the need to pay reparations for the ravages trala of slavery. It got me to thinking. I... Read More
With Amnesty International having just issued a report that calls the practice of torture in African countries "routine" and with probably hundreds of thousands of Africans living in the most grotesque slavery, African nations are cranking up a demand that Western states should apologize and pay up for all the wickedness they perpetrated on their...

The drama of the week consists not in the politics of tax cuts in Washington but rather in the dynamics of raw racial power on the nation's college campuses. David Horowitz, a neo-conservative foe of black racism, has been trying to publish ads against reparations for slavery in college newspapers. Some won't publish the ads... Read More

Will It Work Forever?
Oh, Lord. I'd pull my hair out, if I had more.On the Web I find that Henry Louis Gates Jr., the chairman of Afro-American Studies at Harvard, is demanding that whites, pay reparations to blacks. It's because of slavery, see. He is joined in this endeavor by a gaggle of other professional blacks. I guess... Read More
