When the subject of “black pride” comes up in conservative circles, it’s often met with criticism. The common response goes something like this: “if black or any racial pride is okay, why isn’t white pride?” The simplest answer? White pride is rooted in racial prejudices and hatred, and black pride is not. Heritage Versus Hate First, it must be said that there is nothing wrong with having pride in your heritage. From unique cultural foods to dances and song, culture is a beautiful thing. However, “white pride” is not merely a heritage movement: it is accompanied by the issue of superiority....Read More

The latest Netflix curated show to hit the streaming network is a bit unconventional. It’s not a light ‘dramedy’ like Orange Is The New Black, it’s not a documentary, or even much of a show at all. It’s titled 13 Reasons Why, and it’s a fictional tale about a young high school girl, Hannah Baker, taking her own life. 13 Reasons Why is an important commentary on bullying and harassment, but also on the exclusion and loneliness many teens experience and will continue to face. 13 Reasons Why should be important to the pro-life movement. You may ask why, because Hannah Baker isn’t a...Read More
Historically, America has had a difficult relationship with marijuana. From Reefer Madness, to Nixon dubbing cannabis ‘public enemy number one’, to the current War on Drugs, the government’s relationship with marijuana hasn’t always been positive. However, now that states have started legalizing it, both medically and recreationally, we can see a major change in perception of cannabis usage in society. So far the impact of marijuana legalization is undeniably positive. In 2012, Colorado and Washington (the first states to legalize the substance) made cannabis recreationally legal for people 21 and over. Just from the cannabis industry, Colorado’s state economy has...Read More
Liberals often talk about privilege, asserting that certain groups of people have societal advantages, special rights, or immunities. This so-called privilege comes from a variety of things, such as race, gender, sexuality, or even money. Modern feminism has sought to fight against this privilege as a part of its ideology. And on March 8th, also known as International Women’s Day, feminist women abstained from shopping, working, and “unpaid emotional labor.” This “Day Without Women” was a protest against privilege. However, this protest showcased a very specific type of privilege, as the liberal media would call it: anti-semitic privilege. Rasmea Odeh, who helped...Read More
On March 3rd, some rather interesting tweets resurfaced from the unlikeliest of places. Affinity Magazine, a teen-based liberal publication claiming to be pro-LGBTQ and for social justice, had a significant amount of racially charged and anti-gay tweets arise from the years 2012 through 2014, just three years ago. The publication has already issued an apology via twitter, but what is an apology worth when you compare black people to monkeys, calling them ‘unf**kable’, and refer to ethnic hair as ‘niggar hair’? It doesn’t end there, not from their publication, and definitely not for liberals. The liberal media’s hypocrisy is not...Read More
