My Nephew Voted for Trump, And Will Do It Again, Here’s Why

By Commentaries/Opinions

By Earl Ofari Hutchinson — It was another raucous moment at the family Christmas dinner table when I asked my nephew this question. “You voted for Trump in 2016. Will you vote for him again?” He quickly blurted “Four more years.” That ignited the barrage of whys, how could you, and are you off your rocker, again from other family members. He was unfazed by the assault. He rebutted with…

Obama Cast Long Shadow over Harris and Others Too

By Commentaries/Opinions

He is a staunch protégé of McConnell. Both…

Yes, Trump Can be Indicted While in Office, But…

By Commentaries/Opinions

By Earl Ofari Hutchinson — It’s said so much that it’s become almost a political urban legend. The “it” is that Trump could shoot someone in broad daylight with gobs of witnesses on in the middle of New York’s Fifth Avenue and get away with. During sparring in a New York court over Trump’s tax returns, his attorneys seemingly made that political fiction official. They brazenly said that he was…

Make Climate Change the New Civil Rights Battle

By Commentaries/Opinions

By Earl Ofari Hutchinson — Every Democratic Presidential contender is falling over each other to wear the mantle of top climate change warrior. With a few tweaks mainly involving how much to spend and what timetables to slap on implementation, their plans pretty much boil down to the same things. They want carbon caps, total emphasis on alternative energy sources, end to fossil fuel subsidies, bans on drilling on public…

Pantaleo May Be Out But the Chokehold Isn’t

Earl Ofari Hutchinson: I Oppose The Execution of Dylann S. Roof

By Commentaries/Opinions

By Earl Ofari Hutchinson — Dylann S. Roof is an avowed white supremacist. He wantonly, brazenly, and unapologetically slaughtered nine African-Americans in a South Carolina church in 2015. He’s under a federal death sentence. He’s the kind of heinous mass murderer that almost no one other than maybe his mother could have an ounce of human sympathy for. Few would say that if anyone ever deserved the death penalty for…
