America is a country of immigrants, but that immigration historically occurred within an enforced national policy on immigration. The arrival of immigrants to America and the legal enforcement of a national immigration policy traditionally went hand in hand.
Currently, there is a great divide on the immigration […]
Every American knows this nation was built by immigrants therefore, correctly, there is a huge sympathy for immigrants. We are a hospitable nation. At the same time we need to remember immigrants must be assimilated into this unique nation or the United States will cease to be a […]
I wrote this little essay to help me clear up my own bewilderment about racial issues. I hope it will also be useful to others
My brow is furrowed, and I have question marks colliding with each other in my brain. Oh, where to begin? Research is always […]
On May 1, Baltimore prosecutor Marilyn Mosby charged six police officers, including two black male officers and one female black officer, with 28 various charges, including murder and manslaughter over the death of Freddie Gray. Officer Caesar Goodsoon, the black driver of the van Gray rode in, was […]
Since it’s apparently time to drudge up the past transgressions of our ancestry in order to evoke divisiveness; perhaps those who seek to put a stop to it should recognize “John Brown Appreciation Day – A Day of Unity”
Once again, racial tensions have reached a fevered […]
Over the past week, I have watched with amazement, wonderment, awe, and shock as the funeral of one rather dubious Mr. Gray resulted in the riots, burning, and pillaging of Baltimore, MD.
I was in greater amazement, wonderment, awe, and shock by the statements of that great American […]
It is risky to take the rickety boat from Africa to Europe. Nevertheless, masses embark on a journey to a dream that dissipates once reached. Unshaken by the perils, the goal remains to enter an assumed paradise. The participants put themselves in harm’s way and antagonize […]
Espresso makes you hyper. When you’re hyper you sometimes make rash decisions. When you make rash decisions you usually regret it. Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz evidently chugged a Venti-five-shot-double-pump-skinny-vanilla-latte on Monday before announcing Starbucks’ new “RaceTogether” public relations stunt. As he describes it, the über-”progressive” head of […]
It was supposed to be a phone call for Obama administration ears only. But hear it the radio host did, she says. And what she heard should make your blood run cold — and perhaps your rage hot. Obama’s amnesty plan is to use illegal aliens as “seedlings,” […]
I had the opportunity recently to watch again the magnificent documentary on the Civil War produced by Ken Burns (hard to believe) more than a generation ago.
The series captures with power and clarity the contradictions of a war that was utterly brutal, and yet somehow civil; fought […]
For long, a plea for the recognition of a Kurdish entity has been in “Duly Noted’s” pipeline. The Kurd’s impressive valor and the injustices meted out to them to create “stable conditions” constitute a moral imperative to present this piece.
It is tempting to plead […]
Students at Benchmark Preschool and Elementary School in Phoenix
If you haven’t paid close attention to the school choice movement over the past 10 years, you might not realize how much it has changed. Due to lawsuits and other limitations, innovators have figured out that tuition […]
Rational discussions about National Socialism are often hard to come by. The word “Nazi” has become a vitriolic buzzword that only the Left has a license to use, especially against conservatives where many on the so-called political right are metaphorically and wrongfully characterized as present day fascists. All too many have since precluded that Nazism […]
America does not give up on those who do not give up on themselves. During this memorable Black History Month we must remember not to forget that Dr. Woodson wanted the month to coincide with the birthdays of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln. Those two figures are deeply embedded in Black History, but our […]
If you look for the worst in a group, you’re sure to find it. Using a twist on an Abraham Lincoln line, I made that statement on the Mildred Gaddis Show (Radio One Detroit WCHB AM) last Wednesday during a debate on “White Privilege: Myth or Reality.” […]
I had a non-Jewish girlfriend my first year at College some four decades ago. I remember being at her home one day and visiting with her and her mother. The mood was light and we were kidding one another, and then her mother said to me that […]
