Don’t Vilify Like-Minded Individuals Who Refuse To Join Your Movement

What’s worse than an exclusive movement? An inclusive movement that vilifies those who would fall under its umbrella but refuse to label themselves as such. Nothing is more irksome than a movement that can’t handle those who don’t want to identify with them. Libertarians suffer from this, as does Black Lives Matter. One twitter user went on a tweet-storm about how BLM ostracizes blacks who refuse to … Continue reading Don’t Vilify Like-Minded Individuals Who Refuse To Join Your Movement

A Problem Of Conflicting National Interests

I’ll be honest. I don’t think Obama has it out for police officers, or that he tries to push #BlackLivesMatter at every opportunity. I think he’s a leader who’s dealing with two conflicting interests. Granted, they shouldn’t be conflicting, but the nature of American politics, especially on issues of race, has made it so. Whenever Obama mentions the concerns of the black community alongside those … Continue reading A Problem Of Conflicting National Interests

An Open Letter To The Divided States of America

Dear America, It has taken me a few weeks to fully gather my thoughts. It’s been a rough few weeks, and I think everyone will agree with that. I sit here considering what is going on around me, and had trouble putting thought into words. America, we are divided – no longer United – and we have failed. No matter where you stand on any … Continue reading An Open Letter To The Divided States of America

Hey Republicans, It’s Time For A New Strategy On America’s Racial Tension

Social scientists understand racism as a multidimensional and highly adaptive system—a system that ensures an unequal distribution of resources between racial groups. Because whites built and dominate all significant institutions, (often at the expense of and on the uncompensated labor of other groups), their interests are embedded in the foundation of U.S. society. If you just read the above quote, you’re probably angry or at … Continue reading Hey Republicans, It’s Time For A New Strategy On America’s Racial Tension

My Heart Aches for Our Nation

No entire group of people is good or bad. All white people aren’t good or bad. All black people aren’t good or bad. All muslim people aren’t good or bad. The list goes on and on. Stereotypes and generalizations of entire populations have without a doubt hurt us as a nation. From skewed thinking that all black men are threats to people who claim all muslims love ISIS, … Continue reading My Heart Aches for Our Nation

Police Shootings are a Deadly Manifestation of Big Government

Last week was the anniversary of the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, Missouri, and it has felt like déjà vu all over again. Protestors marked the occasion by taking to the streets – a few by committing violent crimes. Gunshots were fired at cops, and a state of emergency declared. The pattern has become all too familiar. Much ink has been spent interpreting the Black Lives … Continue reading Police Shootings are a Deadly Manifestation of Big Government

Black Lives Matter Unless They are in the Womb

August 9 was the one-year anniversary of the death of criminal Michael Brown which sparked the Ferguson riots as well as protests all across the country, not to mention the recent riots in Baltimore over the death of Freddie Gray. It also sparked the #BlackLivesMatter campaign. Another issue which has been hotly contested lately is abortion. The abortion debate has been reignited by the recent release … Continue reading Black Lives Matter Unless They are in the Womb

All Lives Matter: Even The Elderly

In light of the Planned Parenthood videos which have come to light, covered by Red Millennial’s Assistant Editor Garrett Humbertson, the discussion of the value of life has been reignited as well it should be. However, this discussion has focused on one stage of life, infancy. But don’t #AllLivesMatter? Not just babies. First off, let me clarify, I am pro-life and anti-abortion, I love babies! But … Continue reading All Lives Matter: Even The Elderly
