It’s Part of America’s Troubled Cultural Legacy Supported by Past Tense For more than 180 years, racist stereotypes have been used to entertain. ByWil Haygood Feb. 7, 2019 He keeps showing up, like some slightly bemused and maniacal houseguest, usually intending to get a laugh but instead taking America back into a wicked time warp. The man in blackface stands there, frozen. The photo of him starts to ricochet around our race-haunted land. The outcry begins anew. We find ourselves in this situation again after a photo was circulated last week showing a man in blackface standing next to a man in a Ku Klux Klan robe on the medical school yearbook page of Gov. Ralph Northam of Virginia. At first, Mr. Northam admitted to being in the photo (without disclosing which … [Read more...] about Why Won’t Blackface Go Away?

When you head out to vote on Election Day, don’t forget to bring an umbrella. It’s going to rain. A lot.So, what does that mean for voter turnout?“If it’s cold, Republicans won’t come out to the polls. The rain keeps the Democrats away” is the old axiom, debated between various studies over the years, as the Washington Post reported. While one local expert agrees rain tends to diminish voter turnout, affecting Democrats more than Republicans, he doesn’t think it’s going to keep anyone away from the polls this year – no matter the party.“I think the voters are so enthusiastic, this election is conceivably going to break some midterm records,” said Terry Madonna of the Franklin & Marshall College Center for Politics and Public Affairs.Throughout much of central Pennsylvania on Tuesday, steady rain, with potential thunderstorms, is on the way.“The chance of rain really starts early in the morning, by 7 … [Read more...] about Rain won’t go away, what does it mean for Election Day?
Image via Shutterstock Kirk Effinger, a Realtor and writer from Escondido, gets very defensive in his letter to Voice of San Diego in response to a recent op-ed by Russell York. In Effinger’s letter, his aggressive tone would suggest that York hit a raw nerve by pointing out the fly in the ointment of the “build anywhere and everywhere” paradigm.

This is particularly true considering that we’ve only built 6.8 percent of our “moderate income“ housing goals, 13.5 percent of “low” and 7.9 percent of “very low” income housing. CoreLogic. This is happening throughout California, where the Department of Housing and Community Development recently noted we are overstocked on … [Read more...] about Ignoring the Problem of Housing Affordability Won’t Make It Go Away
MANCHESTER — Former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer said Republicans are likely to lose control of the U.S. House in 2018, but could then grab the majority back in 2020.The decision of House Speaker Paul Ryan not to seek reelection reminds him of 1994 when then-Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell’s unexpected retirement led to the GOP taking control in that chamber.“Mitchell’s abdication of the majority leadership was the coup de grace, it just sent all the signals that the Democrats would not hold the Senate and I fear the same signal was sent by Ryan stepping down,” Fleischer said.“There’s just a huge wave out there, a huge anti-Trump wave out there.”But Fleischer said Democratic leaders are captives of the far-left wing of their party and will overplay their hand if they win the House.“Democrats are going to have a huge problem if they take the majority unless they take it by 30 or 40 seats. They won’t be able … [Read more...] about Former White House press secretary Fleischer says firing Bob Mueller ‘won’t make investigation go away’
