Whether it is Black Lives Matter who demand to be heard or others, Fox News will attempt to shout down the movement to protect their cherished vision of a monochrome America, instead of the messy, rigidly stratified America that so many face.
New York real-estate mogul and media personality, Donald Trump, is the odds-on favorite to win the Republican presidential nomination. Here are the top ten reasons why Trump will prevail.
There is a striking similarity between the GOP of the 1920s and that of today. Indeed, today's GOP resembles no other as much as that of the 1920s. As a political movement dedicated to never changing, conservatism has succeeded admirably.
Everyone has been thinking a lot about the astonishing rise to political prominence of Donald Trump. What a sad thing it is that our country is in this condition where such a man, saying such things, and acting in such a way, can inspire so many people to rally to his support.
Hillary Clinton blamed Donald Trump's rhetoric as the kind of speech that can "trigger someone who is less than stable." While she made these remarks after the Charleston shootings, they were before two Boston rednecks beat senseless an apparently homeless illegal immigrant.
As much as I have mocked the idea, and tweeted jokes about it, in a weird way that I am reluctant to admit (which is why this sentence is going on for so long) the idea of a Donald Trump presidency is starting to grow on me. Like fungus maybe, but growing nonetheless.
Perhaps black people will focus exclusively on eradicating black-on-black crime when white people focus exclusively on eradicating white supremacy. Until then, black folks will continue to focus on both issues, and make changing the policies and practices that contribute to crime in the black community a priority.
Only three candidates are willing to say that the system is corrupt: Bernie Sanders, Donald Trump, and Lawrence Lessig. But Trump has no solution to the problem, while the other two do.
I am convinced that if the traditional mainstream media decided for a week to not cover Donald Trump, we would see a complete transformation in his behavior, because he wouldn't be getting traction. As long as the media continues to cover him, they are depriving the American people from having a true democratic experience.
I honestly don't know if Donald Trump will win the Republican nomination. But he's not just show. He's offering something real, something very valuable to his party's electorate that can't be laughed off or dismissed. Expect him to be around for a while.
It takes only a moment of reflection to know when and why Donald Trump will end his campaign and will absolutely not run as a third party.
Democrats are doing one of two things, and neither one of them is very impressive. Democratic candidates are either so scared of being called a tax-raiser by Republicans that they do not support changing the problem at all, or they are secretly for changing it but don't want to say it.
So it is that I feel reasonably secure in re-stating my firm, unshakable position on this issue. If America actually elects Donald Trump as president, I am going to stay here. While loudly and continually telling everybody that I plan on leaving.
We have to come to terms with the dismaying truth that public opinion, in individuals and in aggregate, is only exceptionally the outcome of an informed and thoughtful process of deliberation.
So here we are. August 2015 and many people believed "The Donald" would have washed out by now. What should we be more concerned with at this point? Should we be more concerned "The Donald" is now a viable contender for the Republican nomination or the fact Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is not locked away in a federal prison yet?
