Many people blame racism for the grave problems that afflict a greater portion of black people than whites, including substandard educational outcomes, poverty, violence, incarceration, and poor health. However, comprehensive facts reveal no association between racism and these afflictions—much less evidence of causation.

In contrast, there are very strong associations between these scourges and leftist public policies and mindsets.

“You ain’t black if you don’t back me over Trump.” I cringed when Joe Biden, the Democratic Party’s presumptive presidential nominee, made this startling, demeaning statement about black Americans who dare think for themselves. His ugly, offensive remarks that I and other blacks who support President Trump are no longer black is a racist statement, period. It should be categorically rejected by all Americans. Read More
