Florida’s Gubernatorial Primary and Memories of Howard Cosell

During a 1972 broadcast of an NFL game, Howard Cosell said of Mike Adamle, an undersized white football player, “Look at that little monkey run!”  History records no controversy following his remark. Eleven years later, during the broadcast of a Monday Night Football game, Cosell said of Alvin Garrett, an undersized African American football player, “That little monkey gets loose, doesn’t he?”  Controversy followed this time, with various people saying quite bad things about Cosell.  To which he responded, with emphasis, that he was ecumenical in calling speedy short people “monkeys” all the time, including his grandchildren, and that there was...

According to National Public Radio, “A division of the American Library Association voted unanimously Saturday to strip Laura Ingalls Wilder's name from a major children's literature award over concerns about how the author referred to Native Americans and blacks.” So let me get this straight: public libraries across the country are enthusiastically hosting “drag queen story hours” for small children this summer but they will not recommend Laura Ingalls Wilder to children.  So now librarians are cleansing literature. May I suggest you go out and buy a set of  Little House in the Prairie today in protest? And read it to your children and...

On April 26, the Minnesota Department of Human Rights (MDHR) announced that it has reached “collaborative agreements” with 10 school districts and charter schools which it claims discriminate against black and Native American students in disciplinary actions. The department bases its claims on the fact that black and Indian students in these schools are suspended at higher rates than their proportion in the student population.

The Latest Battle In the Statue Wars: Stephen Foster

A famous statue of Stephen Foster, often referred to as the father of American music, has stood in Pittsburgh for more than 100 years. (Foster was a native of Pennsylvania.) It was sculpted by Italian emigre Giuseppe Moretti: Today Moretti's statue of Foster was carted away by Pittsburgh authorities: A 118-year-old statue of the “Oh! Susanna” songwriter was removed from a Pittsburgh park Thursday after criticism that the work is demeaning because it includes a slave sitting at his feet, plucking a banjo. In October, the Pittsburgh Art Commission voted to take the Stephen Foster sculpture out of Schenley Plaza and find it...
