Solid Gold Study of the 1992 Rodney King Riot

Brenda Stevenson The Contested Murder of Latasha Harlins: Justice, Gender, and the Origins of the LA Riots Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2013 The Rodney King Riot is now more than two decades past. With such distance, it is possible to examine the riot and see what the long-term effects really were. The conflict started on the afternoon of April 29, 1992, after the four white Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) officers who had been filmed beating the riot’s eponymous black motorist were acquitted by a Simi Valley jury. However, the Rodney King Riot was really the culmination of black-Korean racial …

How Israel Swindled Its Way to an Atomic Bomb

Roger J. Mattson Stealing the Atom Bomb: How Denial and Deception Armed Israel CreateSpace, 2016 There’s a great deal of talk about “weapons of mass destruction” proliferating across the Middle East. The mainstream media has sounded the alarm about Iran’s nuclear weapons program since the 1980s (and yet no Iranian bomb has appeared). The supposed purpose of the Iraq War was to eliminate the nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons programs that Iraq was falsely alleged to have had. To keep their rivals from developing a bomb, Israel attacked nuclear facilities in Iraq in 1981 and in Syria in 2007. To …

An Alt Right Take on Jeff Sessions’ Confirmation Hearing

Senatorial procedures show how the conflicts of the day play out in the official political sphere. So when the confirmation hearings for Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Alabama) to become Attorney General occurred, I watched much of the live stream to see what would happen. It became clear to me that although Senator Sessions is a popular, well-regarded figure in the upper house, his nomination struck a nerve at America’s existing – and future – racial conflict.

The San Francisco Zebra Killings

Clark Howard Zebra New York: Richard Marek Publishers, 1979 A central unexamined political issue in the United States is the failure to manage its African population since the end of the Civil War. This problem is foundational to every American public policy issue and every social problem. In the 1960s, Americans were still on the high of becoming a world power after having won two World Wars. While in that state, they looked to solve their race problem. Most (but not all) of America’s wealthy businessmen, actors, ministers, university professors, and other notables got behind the “Civil Rights” movement that …

Everything to Everybody The Election of 1896

Karl Rove The Triumph of William McKinley: Why the Election of 1896 Still Matters New York: Simon & Schuster, 2015 The presidential election of 1896 has a deep influence on American culture. The classic book, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum, first published in 1900, may have been an allegory of the election.[1] The election re-aligned political coalitions which gave Republicans the White House (minus the Woodrow Wilson exception) from 1896 until 1933. McKinley’s election also swept away much of the lingering bitterness of the Civil War.

The Pro-Colonial Trilogy: 55 Days at Peking, Zulu, & The Sand Pebbles

3,686 words 55 Days at Peking (1963), Zulu (1964), and The Sand Pebbles (1966) aren’t part of an actual trilogy, and aside from Zulu, the films aren’t necessarily about colonialist projects in the strictest sense. Additionally, the movies are produced, written, and directed by entirely different people. However, they are remarkably similar in some ways, and they all have a pro-white rule vibe. The 1960s were a radical, change-filled decade. Part of the reason for this change was that the last of Europe’s Empires started to break up during that decade. France was driven from Algeria in 1962, and Portugal dealt …
