Senator Kamala Harris could become president of the United States. Joe Biden, who enjoys wide leads in national polls and battleground-state polls, may well win the election.

Puzzle for a retired scientist
The Office of Human Rights in Eugene, Oregon, my home town of the past 60 years, reported a peak in total hate crimes for 2017.

Black 17-year-old Jazmine Barnes was shot dead on December 30, 2018 in Houston, Texas. Her murder became a huge story because witnesses said the killer was a white man.

Jussie Smollett
Downtown Chicago is full of Trump-loving, ski-masked racists. At least, that’s the assumption made by people who believe the incredible hate crime tale of Jussie Smollett. Smollett is a gay black man who stars in the popular black television series Empire. He is also a rapper. Smollett claims he was beaten in the early morning... Read More

If one’s reality derived entirely from the mainstream mass media, one would conclude since Trump arrived on the political scene America is awash in the modern-day plagues of Biblical proportions :the hatreds of racism, sexism, homophobia, Islamophobia, xenophobia, anti-Semitism and, no doubt, a few others to be named later. Further add how mere disagreement over... Read More
Football Is Not Worth America’s Future
Capitulation, self-abasement, groveling—are the words even strong enough to describe the actions of Tim Wolfe [Email him] president of the University of Missouri, who has just resigned because of pressure exerted on him by what amounts to a black lynch mob?

More Legal Lynchings of White Men

Today comes news that in what The New York Times delicately called an “unusual legal maneuver,” the... Read More
CounterPunch Diary
We’ve got the Hate Crimes Bill, aka the Matthew Shepard Act, aka the Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act, before Congress and far advanced on its repellent journey towards the statute book. On Thursday the Senate Judiciary Committee held a hearing on the bill, which passed the House of Representatives by a 249-175 vote... Read More
The truly deplorably tendency to regulate behavior by codifying and punishing inappropriate views as "hate crimes" will no doubt accelerate after the killing of the abortion doctor in Kansas and the Holocaust museum guard in Washington. What is worse, perhaps, is private sector attempts to anticipate such legislation by purging themselves of all objectionable content.... Read More
"Hate crimes" are always good for a headline, even when they're fake. Last week the Los Angeles Times confirmed what many have long suspected and in some cases known—there are a lot more phony"hate crimes" padding the count than the bare numbers reported tell us.

Now if it's racial hatred you're looking for, I happen to have on hand about as much as you can handle. It's not hatred of non-whites but of whites, and I didn't write it -- one of my peace-loving, world-saving crackpot readers did. I assure everyone he's not typical of my readers in general, most...

Some time after Trent Lott's 157th apology for what he said to Strom Thurmond last month, the U.S. Supreme Court took up the not-very-burning issue of cross burning, and the New York Times splashed the news all across its front page the next day. A case before the court is challenging a statute of the... Read More
If it's a "hate crime" you're looking for, the New York Times seems to have found a few in West Hollywood, California.

Only a week or so after a debate in the U.S. Senate about Sen. Ted Kennedy's hate crimes bill,[PDF of bill text] a real hate crime actually took place in New York City, but probably neither most of the senators nor most Americans even heard about it. As the New York Timesheadline described the crime,... Read More
With the federal indictment of a man last week for the murder of two lesbians in a national park six years ago, "hate crimes" are suddenly back in the national news.

With a verdict of guilty returned by an Arkansas jury last week in the case of a 13-year-old boy kidnapped, raped and murdered by homosexuals, the murky political mission of much of the national media becomes a bit more transparent than it was before. Despite the horror and shock the Arkansas atrocity offers, virtually no... Read More
I Wonder Why The Protected Groups All Vote Democratic
The continuing effort to expand laws against hate crimes is not, I think, good for either the police or the country. Let me tell you why. To begin with, the effect is to create political crimes.
