President Trump Can Win on Race

Karin McQuillan, American Greatness

The Republican colorblind views on race are in line with the finest values of the civil rights era, the great heritage of our founding fathers, and Biblical teachings on equality and the brotherhood of man. Republican values on race would help black Americans flourish and improve their lives. We would all work together towards a harmonious and fair America, instead of setting each group against the other, as Democrats do. If liberal and older Democrats really understood the way Democrats have changed the meaning of “racism” they would no longer believe Democrat assertions that all Republicans are racist. They would realize that they side more with Republicans on equality, fairness, and race.

Editors, Washington Examiner

Fifty years ago this evening, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated. Since then, the nation has changed dramatically, and with respect to race relations, mostly for the better.

He sweeps into office with a clear and bold mandate from the people.

Colin Kaepernick, bench warmer

Editors, Washington Examiner

It's probably no coincidence that Kaepernick has developed his loud, publicity-gleaning social conscience just when his team is thinking of cutting him for playing badly. If he is booted by the 49ers, he can console himself and tell others that it's retribution for his brave stand — er, sit — for justice.

Sheriff Clarke: Obama is hallucinating on improving race relations

Michael W. Chapman, CNS News

As for President Barack Obama’s claim that his presidency has helped “mobilize America on behalf of issues of racial disparity,” Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. said the opposite is true and Obama is “hallucinating if he thinks he has improved race relations in America.”

Scholars Say “The Butler” Gets Reagan Wrong on Race

We agree with Craig Shirley, Kiron K. Skinner, Steven F. Hayward and Paul Kengor – films like “The Butler” can be good opportunities for a healthy consideration of our troubled racial history, but not if they persist with inaccurate portrayals of President Reagan's record and personal views.
