Remember, there are 5 A’s in RAAAAACISM!!1!
Comedian and podcaster Adam Carolla and talk radio host and author Dennis Prager made waves a few months ago by conducting a live on-stage talk before an audience. Hard to believe? Not really, once you’ve heard them when they get rolling.
Carolla had Prager on his podcast two days ago, and trust me, you need to listen to this episode of the show. It’s both funny and thought-provoking.
At the top of the show, Adam talks about his enjoyment of Dennis Prager’s book, ‘Still The Best Hope’. The guys talk about their upcoming tour together, and why their on-stage chemistry is so charged. Adam then talks with Dennis about a variety of issues in America, including the hypocrisy of beliefs, the importance of parental care, and why we’re really the least racist society in human history.
Later, Adam talks with Dennis about earning your self-esteem as opposed to just being given a trophy for arriving. Adam also talks about the unnecessary step to get fingerprinted to coach his kids’ baseball team, and Dennis discusses the ‘sin’ of offending people. The guys also chat about the ineffectiveness of diversity training, and the mistreatment of smokers in our society. As the show wraps up, Adam praises Dennis for his patience and respect when talking with people who disagree with him.

Professor Derrick Bell was one of the earliest and most strident advocates of Critical Race Theory:
Bell believed then, as he does to this day, that whites would support civil rights protections for blacks only if those protections would also promote white self-interest and social status. Since Bell maintains that racial minorities are a permanently oppressed caste — and that racism is a normal, permanent aspect of American life — he reasons that equality before the law is unfair to blacks, whose moral claims are superior to those of whites. He has endorsed a journal dedicated to the “abolition of whiteness,” called Race Traitor, whose motto is “Treason to the white race is loyalty to humanity.”
According to Professor Bell and his fellow Critical Race theorists, existing legal structures are, like American society at large, racist in their very construction. Critical Race Theory suggests that to combat this “institutional racism,” oppressed racial groups have both the right and the duty to decide for themselves, which laws are valid and are worth observing. Critical Race Theory also promotes the use of storytelling narratives in law-review articles to better reflect the “oral traditions” of black experience. Bell has used the technique of placing legal and social commentary into the mouths of invented characters extensively in his writings. While acknowledging that this “style of storytelling” is “less rigorous than the doctrine-laden, citation-heavy law review pieces,” he employs it nonetheless.
He was also a mentor to a young Barack Obama, who idolized the aging racist and organized at least one student demonstration supporting him while the future president was a law student. Selectively-edited footage of that demonstration leaked today, but the raw footage will air tonight thanks to Andrew Breitbart’s happy warriors.
3/8 Update: More on Bell and his past.
3/8 Update 2: Well, look what we have here.
Newshound brings up the uncomfortable topic of Ken Blackwell’s race, and wonders how much of a liability it is among voters who would otherwise find themselves supporting him.
I wonder about this myself. A researcher named Ebonya Washington recently published a study called “How Black Candidates Affect Voter Turnout” … I guess I’ll be forking over the money to get myself a copy.
As the race-grievance industry continues to hector the public about the federal government’s response to Hurricane Katrina, we’ve all by now heard the oft-repeated slander that the feds were slow to react because President Bush “doesn’t care about black people.” Now Hurricane Rita is heading into the Gulf and everybody from New Orleans to Corpus Christi is ducking and covering. Unless I’m misinformed, there isn’t any major metropolitan area there that has a higher percentage of black residents than New Orleans.
So … a prediction. If Rita follows its predicted track and hits anyplace other than New Orleans, here’s what’ll happen:
- Stung by criticism over their response to Katrina, FEMA and other federal agencies will leap into action.
- President Bush will fly down to the impact area as always, and will have an extra-sympathetic speech ready to deliver.
- The race hustlers will immediately point out the fast response, wryly shake their heads and say “See? Bush only cares about white people.”
You heard it here first.
