Michael Medved: “Black Conservative”: No Contradiction in Terms

To mainstream media, the designation “Black conservative” represents a contradiction in terms. Conventional wisdom insists African Americans must automatically identify as progressive, or even radical, to be true to their racial identity, But a bold new film explodes that patronizing assumption with passion, wit and a series of admirable examples.

Uncle Tom” features Black leaders like Allen West, Herman Cain, Robert Woodson, Candace Owens and my talk radio colleague Larry Elder—who’s also one of the film’s producers.

Without narration or an overarching storyline, the film provides insightful, sometimes intimate observations in vivid black and white, so the contemporary comments blend seamlessly with stunning historical footage.

Along with eloquent vintage photographs, these clips bring to life great figures from Frederick Douglass and Booker T. Washington to Dr. King himself. “Uncle Tom” is perfectly timed, making a much-needed contribution to the quest for justice and understanding at a moment of accusatory hysteria in race relations.

Bowyer: Do the Riots Make Any Sense?


Do the riots make any sense? While there is a clearly an understandable rationale behind peaceful protests over the death of George Floyd, what purpose can there be in looting, destroying businesses and engaging in more acts of violence against innocent people?

How is justice served by piling injustice on top of injustice?

There’s no logic to this except for that of mysterium iniquitatis—Latin for the ‘the mystery of evil’. The sacking and burning of businesses, the breakdown of order, the embrace of chaos is not rational. It’s not just destructive—it’s self-destructive.

Much of what is happening has nothing to do with race or economics or politics or ideology.

Some things are too big for us to handle on our own. It’s time for Americans to pray about the crises that have engulfed us.

Albert Mohler: Law and Order and the Death of George Floyd

The video of George Floyd, a black man in Minneapolis, held down by a police officer in an arrest with his knee on the back of his neck resulted—as we now know—in his tragic death.

Commenting on the video, Art Acevedo, who is the head of the Major Cities Chiefs Association said, “I haven’t heard anybody justify this.”

The sad reality is that George Floyd is now dead.

When you look at the protests and rioting in Minneapolis, it is an ugly picture everywhere you look—and now not just in Minneapolis.

But where does this story lead?

It all comes down to the importance of the rule of law. If the rule of law breaks down, there is no rescue.

Injustice documented before our eyes cries out for justice, but justice calls out for the rule of law—in the courtroom and on the streets of America’s cities.

Albert Mohler: Ahmaud Arbery and the Rule of Law

The death of Ahmaud Arbery—a young black man in Georgia—has highlighted some big issues in the rule of law.

Last week we saw an arrest of two white men charged with murder and aggravated assault and the fatal shooting of the 25-year-old.

Once video of the incident surfaced on social media, the story rightfully exploded all over the media and the public consciousness.

Many are rightly asking why it took 74 days between the shooting and an eventual arrest.

The Attorney General in Georgia on Sunday announced doing just the right thing, that Georgia would ask the United States government through the Department of Justice to conduct an investigation—as the DOJ is uniquely equipped to do.

This is exactly what the rule of law looks like and we’ll be watching the case closely.

For now, our prayer must be with the Arbery family and with that community as they grieve their loss and as we look for justice.
