  • Extremism is the problem, not Muslims

    Extremism is the problem, not Muslims
    "I know this sounds racist, but ..." So goes the subject line on last week's email from Bill, a reader. It seems Bill has an idea. Given that "all of the radical terrorists have been Muslims," he wants the government to mount a program to surveil...
  • The curse of Redskins

    The curse of Redskins
    See if this makes sense to you: For years, I've argued with certain African-American people about their insistence upon using the so-called N-word which, to my ears, is, inalterably, a statement of self-loathing. They say I don't understand. They say...
  • Ignoring the real while fighting the imaginary

    Ignoring the real while fighting the imaginary
    It should've been the shot heard around the world. Chances are, you didn't hear it. An ominous sort of history was made last week near Austin, Texas, but it seems to have largely escaped notice. There was some media coverage, yes, but less than, say,...
  • In Florida, timely injustice

    In Florida, timely injustice
    At great political peril, George Ryan did the right thing. Not to canonize the man. After all, the then-governor of Illinois was later imprisoned on corruption charges. But that doesn't change the fact that, in 2000, stung that 13 inmates had been...
  • What was the IRS thinking?

    What was the IRS thinking?
    Well, this is a fine mess. After years of moaning about various "conspiracies" against them, conservative activists finally have a real (i.e., not manufactured by Fox or inflated by Rush Limbaugh) piece of evidence to take before the court of public...
  • In Texas, black means future danger

    In Texas, black means future danger
    If the state of Texas executes Duane Buck, it'll be because he is black. Well, mainly it will be because in 1995, he shot his ex-girlfriend, Debra Gardner, and her friend, Kenneth Butler, to death at Gardner's Houston home, and also wounded his own...
  • Deny terrorists their power

    Deny terrorists their power
    I have not seen the video. Not saying I won't, but for now, I've chosen not to. To rush online and seek out cellphone footage of two fanatics with machetes who butchered a British soldier in London on Wednesday, to watch them standing there, hands...
  • Not even the Boston bombing can unite a fractured America

    Not even the Boston bombing can unite a fractured America
    Ordinarily, I'd thank you for writing. But truth is, I am not grateful you wrote; your note last week was one of the more troubling things I have read. I do not blame you for leaving it unsigned. "We stand together," I had written. "We stand defiant....
  • Rand Paul gets schooled at Howard

    Rand Paul gets schooled at Howard
    Rand Paul did just fine at Howard University, thank you very much. Or at least, that's how he remembers it. Mr. Paul, GOP senator from Kentucky, told the Christian Science Monitor on Wednesday that his recent visit to Howard didn't go so bad at all....
  • A thirst-quenching blow for freedom

    A thirst-quenching blow for freedom
    Perhaps you remember when Dr. Doom conquered the world. Or perhaps you don't. Sadly enough, even in this day and age, not everyone is comic book literate. Suffice it to say, then, that back in the 1980s, Marvel Comics published a graphic novel in...
  • Progress undone on rape

    Progress undone on rape
    What we have here is a failure to communicate. Or at least, that's Rick Ross' story and he's sticking to it. The Miami rapper has ignited a prairie fire of controversy with a song called "U.O.E.N.O.," its title a phonetic spelling of an ebonic...
  • Wrong about racism

    Wrong about racism
    One day, many years ago, I was working in my college bookstore when this guy walks in wearing a T-shirt. "White Power," it said. I was chatting with a friend, Cathy Duncan, and what happened next was as smooth as if we had rehearsed it. All at once,...
