I am a white American, and while I can’t pretend to understand what people of color have had to deal with since the beginning of this country’s history, I can feel pain about watching how they have always been treated and still are. A lot of white people have this misguided belief that racial tensions are a new problem. But that’s so far from the truth. I remember in the ’60s and when Martin Luther King Jr was murdered. But these problems go back to the mid-1600s when the first African slaves were kidnapped and brought to this country against their will. From that point on, they were treated as second-class citizens and even less than that. While I am white, I am inspired and encouraged by the members of my own family who are non-whites. They continue to teach me.

A friend recently said to me, “John, I’m so tired of hearing about white privilege. I get, enough already.” Not surprisingly, she was not a person of color. Being tired is an option for her. I know it is for me. Many people don’t get to make that choice.

If Black people having their rights and freedoms respected scares you, you’re admitting that your present rights and freedoms depend upon the denial of theirs.


Marvin Scott III was arrested in March on a misdemeanor marijuana charge. When he was taken to the county jail, officers restrained him, blasted pepper spray, & covered his head with a hood. He became unresponsive and was pronounced dead at a hospital

CNN Drops Rick Santorum After Racist Comments About Native Americans

CNN has terminated its contract with senior political commentator Rick Santorum after racist, inaccurate remarks he made about Native Americans, HuffPost has learned.

Santorum, a former Republican senator and two-time failed GOP presidential candidate, sparked outrage last month after claiming there was “nothing” in America before white colonizers arrived and that Native people haven’t contributed much to American culture, anyway.

“We birthed a nation from nothing. I mean, there was nothing here,” Santorum told students during remarks at a Young America’s Foundation event. “I mean, yes, we have Native Americans, but candidly, there isn’t much Native American culture in American culture.”

Prominent Indigenous-led organizations including the National Congress of American Indians and Illuminative have spent weeks demanding that CNN fire Santorum over his remarks. National civil rights groups have also called for his firing. CNN has stayed silent on the matter.

But on Saturday, a CNN senior executive told HuffPost that the network quietly ended its contract with Santorum this week. This executive, who requested anonymity to speak openly, said the decision to cut ties with Santorum came after he went on one of the network’s shows, “Cuomo Prime Time,” to explain himself shortly after he made his racist comments. He blew it, said this executive, and after that, nobody at the network wanted to keep him around.”

Republicans: The January 6th insurrection is unworthy of an investigation. Also Republicans: We must examine all of the ballots in Arizona for traces of BAMBOO.

If Republicans really believed “antifa” was behind the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, they’d want a Jan. 6 commission. They don’t.

Why are the people who scream the most about unity, the ones least likely to unify?
