Institutional racism. Systemic racism. Racism interwoven into the foundation of this country. It sure sounds like the U.S. is one big racist country. But is it really? Joining us today is Eric Kaufmann (manhattan-institute.org), Adjunct Fellow at the Manhattan Institute, who discusses his own detailed research into the subject. He conducted studies of how people perceive racism based on their exposure to media and politicians and his results are telling. He dives into how people of different races react to the subject and how none of those communities are benefiting from media narratives. When words and sensitive topics like this become weaponized, discussion is shut down and the problem only worsens.
A question often asked: why does the black community continue to vote for the same people who seem to do them the most harm? Author, columnist, and lecturer Vince Ellison (www.irontrianglebook.com) joins us to discuss his experience in dealing with the Democrat Party, who, he submits, are getting exactly what they want – 90% of the black vote – so why would they change anything?
Mr. Ellison shows that not all white people are racists, just like not all black conservatives are Uncle Toms. Moral values, honesty, and faith are the most important things, regardless of your skin color. He also gives a scathing indictment of the Democrat Party throughout history.
