CANCELING ALEXANDER HAMILTON

The Woke are at it again.

The question has lingered around the edges of the pop-culture ascendancy of Alexander Hamilton: Did the 10-dollar founding father, celebrated in the musical “Hamilton” as a “revolutionary manumission abolitionist,” actually own slaves?

Some biographers have gingerly addressed the matter over the years, often in footnotes or passing references. But a new research paper released by the Schuyler Mansion State Historic Site in Albany, N.Y., offers the most ringing case yet.

Remembering Dorie Miller

Some grew up hearing the story of an eager Black military that gleefully went of to war to save the world from Hitler. These men and women put the segregation they faced in the United States aside.

President Trump is sick. How can we pray for him when we hate his policies?

An interesting Christian view of praying for Trump's recovery

After news broke Friday that President Trump had tested positive for the novel coronavirus and would be admitted to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for treatment, I shared that I would be praying.

But I wasn’t surprised to hear from people who struggled with what I was saying.

“Good Lord Bird” Finally Reaches Television Screens

“The Good Lord Bird” has not received what you could call kid-glove treatment from Showtime. It was announced for Feb. 16 but pulled, then rescheduled for Aug. 9 and pulled again. It will finally premiere, without much fanfare, this Sunday.

Ibram X Kendi writes about how one can become an anti-racist. Kendi admits that he often fails. Apparently, he sits at his desk and realizes that Trump is trying to push through a new SCOTUS candidate.
