The New Republic Settles for What's Safe, Avoids Real Controversy

Ace summed up the painful hypocrisy found on the front cover of the latest issue of the The New Republic (TNR). The Left of center (I’m feeling generous, today) magazine whose staff has historically been all-white-all-the-time, found it necessary to run a lengthy story entitled, The Republicans, The Party of White People. 

Much like most of the news media, TNR is out of touch with working class Americans. People are losing purchasing power. Our government’s incessant spending is slamming up against the concrete laws of economics and more Americans are suffering as a result. But to the editors at TNR, Hollywood’s lack of gay sex scenes, the GOP’s race problem and amnesty are all far more important stories. 

If TNR wants to continue to cover racial politics and peddle in controversy, they should stop avoiding the truly controversial, but well documented destruction of black America under the first black president. 

Here are just three areas that the race-obsessed writers at TNR can use to be relevant and shake up the conversation:  

  1. Does the First Black President Care About Black Unemployment? 
  2. First Black President Fails Black Women
  3. First Black President Still Silent on Out of Work Black Youth 

I’ll be over here, not holding my breath.
