Leonard Pitts: Sometimes, race is more distraction than explanation

Posted 4/23/2016 in National Columns

Dear white people: As you no doubt know, the water crisis in Flint, Mich., returned to the headlines last week with news that the state attorney general is charging three government officials for their alleged roles in the debacle. It makes this a convenient moment to deal with something that has irked me about the way this disaster is framed.

 

Kathleen Parker: Dear Bernie Sanders: Black votes matter

Posted 4/23/2016 in National Columns

African Americans in the South can't get a break when it comes to voting, as history can't deny. After all they've endured through slavery, Jim Crow and the fight for civil rights, their voices are still treated dismissively by tone-deaf politicians who would ask for their votes.

Patrick J. Buchanan: America's imperial overstretch

Posted 4/16/2016 in National Columns

This week, SU-24 fighter-bombers buzzed a U.S. destroyer in the Baltic Sea. The Russian planes carried no missiles or bombs. Message: What are you Americans doing here?

 

Jamie Stiehm: New book offers fresh perspectives on Lincolns, Abe and Mary Todd

Posted 4/16/2016 in National Columns

It's high Lincoln season, bittersweet as it can be in remembrance of the slain Civil War president. Into the spring mix, noted author and journalist Sidney Blumenthal brings a breathtaking new view of Abraham Lincoln in his forthcoming book, "A Self-Made Man: The Political Life of Abraham Lincoln." (Yes, that Sidney Blumenthal of email fame and furor, a senior adviser to Hillary Clinton and earlier, to President Bill Clinton.)
