Friday Fave: A Brief Political Detour

I don’t have a lot to say about the politics of the day. My latest book review probably reveals plenty, but I ran across a video from the insightful Jason Whitlock of Outkick, and I decided to share a snippet of it here. I will add a link to the entire video for those who may be interested.

However, in the interest of expediency, I am offering a small 2 minute portion that beautifully encapsulates my political stance in this contentious election year. It’s a great rebuttal to those people who insist that people of particular ethnicity (or sex or age or whatever) must belong to a particular school of thought.

I couldn’t have said it any better, honestly. You can find Mr. Whitlock’s full rebuttal to the WaPo hit piece on him and his colleague here.
Edited to add: Not sure why my embedded video didn’t show up in the post, and my IT guy is at work. So, you’ll just have to click the link. But I promise it’s worth the 1 minute, 20 seconds. It really is. He even mentions Booker T. Washington not once, but twice! Twice! In 80 seconds.

    Good for him! 🙂

    It’s telling that someone who dares to think for himself / herself in our times, who dares to be independent-minded and not follow the herd, is somehow ‘controversial’.

    How absurd!

    @ Will S.

    I recently read where someone accused people like me, Jason Whitlock, Candace Owens, etc. of being “white supremacists masquerading as black folk”.

    Because you would profit so much personally from victorious white supremacy, LOL…

    A new way of calling people ‘Uncle Tom’, ‘coconut’, ‘Oreo’, etc., I guess… But a rather stupid one, at that…
