Democratic presidential hopeful Robert Francis ‘Beto’ O’Rourke told a group of immigrants, ‘This country was founded on white supremacy.’ Frederick Douglass has some words for him.
The nation’s leaders after the Civil War did not see a need to alter the flag’s appearance because they outlawed slavery under it. The American flag—the Union flag—was the victor in the Civil War.
Countless elites in the media this week have cited abolitionist Frederick Douglass’ infamous 1852 speech as a condemnation of American ideals. It in fact was the opposite.
History should be taught and scrutinized, but should never be sanitized, at least not in a country that aspires to learn from its imperfect past.
The evils of slavery are too great to be fixed with cash. Forgiveness cannot be bought, and no number of government commissions will make things right.
Today when I visit gravesites, museums, and landmarks honoring those who were enslaved in our country, I no longer feel that frustration I felt as a kid. Instead, my mind goes back in time.
‘I have always loved listening to the stories from ‘old times,’ and I am proud of all my family has accomplished despite coming out of the horrible sin of slavery,’ says Betty Anderson, 69.
Ambitious in its production scale and subject matter, ‘Amazing Grace: The Broadway Musical’ plays this summer at an unlikely venue in the nation’s capital.
Don’t let pro-choicers convince you it’s wrong to speak out. Offer your money, time, community, and resources to mothers who choose life.
The passage of New York’s Reproductive Health Act and the jollification that followed it mark a turning point on abortion, just as John Calhoun’s speech did about slavery.
Hiding behind the pro-choice view is revolting when applied to slavery, and it should be equally so for abortion. Human life should not be subject to another’s whim.
While both camps make their fair share of arguments, their reluctance to directly engage the other side makes it unlikely that society will progress towards a better understanding of this highly divisive issue.
No other group—not Hispanics, Muslims, or anyone else—have faced what black Americans have. Race in America is not about people of color. It’s about black people.
Rather than allow a white woman to perform a cultural touchstone of America, protesters shut it down. What a disservice that is to the creators of these works.
Jamelle Bouie gives us a critique of the Enlightenment from the Left, and it’s exactly what you were expecting: another excuse to call everyone racist.
There is nothing new under the sun, just different justifications for similar ideas. The Enlightenment had their own for racism, just as all ages have.
Douglass called out the horrors of slavery by affirming founding principles. Now leading voices in government and culture illuminate why his ideas matter today.
