Race and False Hate Crime Narratives

Race and False Hate Crime Narratives

The reaction to the mass shootings in Boulder, Colorado, and Atlanta, Georgia, over the last week has revealed how invested the Democratic establishment is in one all-powerful narrative. Both shootings produced an immediate response from the media, Democratic politicians, and activists—that the slaughters were the result of white supremacy and that white Americans are the biggest threat facing the US. That interpretation was reached, in the case of the Boulder shooting, on the slimmest of evidence, and in the case of the Atlanta shooting, in the face of contradictory facts.After the Boulder...

Defunding the NYPD is madness after the thousands of black lives they have saved

Defunding the NYPD is madness after the thousands of black lives they have saved

Thanks for contacting us. We've received your submission.Close“How lovely when we see the police! They are my friends.”So burst out an elderly lady attending a police-community meeting in the Bronx several years ago. Her voice is representative of the thousands of senior citizens, middle-aged workers, and small business owners who fervently support the New York Police Department. These vulnerable New Yorkers want more police presence, not less; they view officers as their only protection against predation.What will the activists seeking to tell these law-abiding residents — that they are...

Opinion | Woke Science Is an Experiment Certain to Fail

Opinion | Woke Science Is an Experiment Certain to Fail

Skip to Main ContentSkip to SearchByPresident Trump has ordered an end to training on “white privilege” and “critical race theory” in the federal bureaucracy. The directive is a good first step toward removing identity politics from federal operations. Next up should be the millions of taxpayer dollars devoted annually to cultivating race- and sex-based grievance in the sciences. The National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have all embraced the idea that science is pervaded by systemic bias that handicaps minorities...

Opinion | I Cited Their Study, So They Disavowed It

Opinion | I Cited Their Study, So They Disavowed It

Skip to Main ContentSkip to SearchByThe Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences is a peer-reviewed journal that claims to publish “only the highest quality scientific research.” Now, the authors of a 2019 PNAS article are disowning their research simply because I cited it. Psychologists Joseph Cesario of Michigan State and David Johnson of the University of Maryland analyzed 917 fatal police shootings of civilians from 2015 to test whether the race of the officer or the civilian predicted fatal police shootings. Neither did. Once “race specific rates...To Read the Full...

The Deadly Costs of Extended Shutdown Orders - American Greatness

The Deadly Costs of Extended Shutdown Orders - American Greatness

ore than a dozen governors extended their economic shutdown orders recently into May and beyond. Those officials should have publicly addressed the following questions first:Instead, the announcements of the prolonged shutdown were representative of government decision-making during the coronavirus crisis: opaque, lacking in criteria for measuring success and failure, and bereft of any attempt to measure the benefits of mitigating one particular health problem against the costs—including other health problems.New York’s tele-ubiquitous governor, Andrew Cuomo, for example, announced on April...

Opinion | The Myth of Systemic Police Racism

Opinion | The Myth of Systemic Police Racism

Skip to Main ContentSkip to SearchByGeorge Floyd’s death in Minneapolis has revived the Obama-era narrative that law enforcement is endemically racist. On Friday, Barack Obama tweeted that for millions of black Americans, being treated differently by the criminal justice system on account of race is “tragically, painfully, maddeningly ‘normal.’ ” Mr. Obama called on the police and the public to create a “new normal,” in which bigotry no longer “infects our institutions and our hearts.” Joe Biden released a video the same day in which he asserted that all...Sponsored Offers

There Is No Epidemic of Racist Police Shootings

There Is No Epidemic of Racist Police Shootings

The Democratic presidential candidates have revived the anti-police rhetoric of the Obama years. Joe Biden’s criminal-justice plan promises that after his policing reforms, black mothers and fathers will no longer have to fear when their children “walk the streets of America” — the threat allegedly coming from cops, not gangbangers. President Barack Obama likewise claimed during the memorial for five Dallas police officers killed by a Black Lives Matter–inspired assassin in July 2016 that black parents were right to fear that their child could be killed by a police officer whenever he...
