Leonard Pitts: Where will Trump's believers go when he implodes?

Posted 10/8/2016 in National Columns

I used to love "The X-Files." Like millions of Americans, I unfailingly followed FBI agents Mulder and Scully's search for the truth in a labyrinth of conspiracy.


Leonard Pitts: Donald Trump is a 'BS artist'

Posted 9/22/2016 in National Columns

We've called him many things. We pundits have overworked our thesauruses and our imaginations to describe Donald Trump.


Leonard Pitts: Is Trump a reflection of us?

Posted 9/17/2016 in National Columns

I know you are, but what am I?"


Leonard Pitts: American protest is an act of faith

Posted 9/14/2016 in National Columns

It keeps getting bigger. One might have expected last month's protest by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, his refusal to stand for the national anthem, to have blown over by now.


Leonard Pitts: A postcard from post-factual America

Posted 9/11/2016 in Local Columns

"Why haven't you reported that Colin Kaepernick's actions are due to his radical Muslim beliefs? Why are you covering this up?"


Leonard Pitts: Not my place to absolve Nate Parker

Posted 8/31/2016 in National Columns

I had decided not to see Nate Parker's new movie.


Leonard Pitts: 'Hillbilly Elegy': a portrait of America's unseen

Posted 8/27/2016 in National Columns

His name doesn't even appear in the book. But make no mistake. "Hillbilly Elegy," the new best-seller by J.D. Vance, is, in a very real sense, about Donald Trump.


Leonard Pitts: How conservative pundits helped break reality

Posted 8/24/2016 in National Columns

Ordinarily, I might gloat. Last week, a prominent conservative pundit conceded a point yours truly and countless others have been making for a long time.


Leonard Pitts: Racism pervades our institutions, yet all are 'innocent'

Posted 8/13/2016 in National Columns

We will get to Baltimore in a moment. First, let's talk about innocence.

Posted 8/11/2016 in National Columns

"Then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free" --John 8:32 Or maybe not. Far be it from me to correct Jesus, but to survey the modern political landscape is to see precious little evidence of the truth setting anyone free.

Let me tell you how I got in trouble with ladies.


Leonard Pitts: Open letter to the Republican Party

Posted 8/3/2016 in National Columns

Dear Republican Party: Congratulations. By now, one thing is beyond dispute: You have produced a candidate for the ages.


Leonard Pitts: Battle between left and right no longer a contest of ideas

Posted 7/25/2016 in National Columns

Well, that was sure ugly. Last week's Republican conclave in Cleveland came across less as a nominating convention than as a four-day nervous breakdown, a moment of fracture and bipolarity from a party that no longer has any clear idea what it stands for or what it is. Everywhere you turned there was something that made you embarrassed for them,


Leonard Pitts: Cop killers serve no cause

Posted 7/22/2016 in National Columns

How can anyone ever explain this to Mason? He's only 4 months old, so that moment still lies years in the future. Still, at some point, too soon, he will ask the inevitable questions, and someone will have to tell him how his dad was shot to death for being a police officer in Baton Rouge.

Posted 7/21/2016 in National Columns

Here's something I never thought I'd have to say. People should not play Pokemon at Auschwitz.


Leonard Pitts: Police are not the problem, we are

Posted 7/16/2016 in National Columns

Leonard Pitts: Police are not the problem, we are

Leonard Pitts: America has gone mad and there's no place to hide

Posted 7/9/2016 in National Columns
