Young people are enamored with "anti-racist" rhetoric because they think they are fighting racist systems in America. The TRUTH is they are fighting America itself and the very values the country was founded on. Dennis identifies the best thing we can do to help.

My wife use to tan but didn't like 2 bright areas. Working or relaxing you cannot prevent parts getting darker. So my wife use to tan all over just for that reason

My second wife is an immigrant and not white. Been with her for almost 2 decades and we raised her 2 kids when they were at school age. She has never worked for anyone but herself. I hated to go shopping with her in the beginning. She would look at everything, pick it up , stuff like that. At her fingertips and she could by it. She works for herself and does good. I am mad at her because she believes what she sees on tv. One network was her source back home and she keeps watching them.

2+2=4 has already been claimed to be racist by the left. Facts are racists because they don't have feelings. This is the world we live in now. The good thing is, the further down this pit they go, the harder it will be to return to the real world and by then, hopefully, they will either become the new flat earthers in society or they will take over the world and God can smite this planet and all the evil that is present on it.

The problem with W people saying they are color blind is that they say it mostly to black people. They don't say it to other W people or Asians. They certain recognize when they are too pale and need a tan on themselves and other white people. But some how they go color blind to the skin color of black people, which we are proud of and you tan for. W people say it black people to be noble. Well, black people don't think it's noble. But you don't want to know that. You want us to understand what you mean by being color blind. I here to tell you it's not our job to decode what you mean. This is why most black people don't want to talk to white people about race. The entire purpose is to make you feel better at insulting us. We are no longer having it.

I lost potentially 2 friends today, because the wife swallowed the left's agenda and thinks I've swollowed the rights "BS" not to mention that I'm a racist. I've known them for over 20 years. I sent them something that was truthfull. But the wife was insulted by the truth.

@David Lackie Ah shame. Truth be told, I actually am on the left, and was genuinely interested to know what you're wife claimed was racist. I felt like I couldn't trust your response if I told you upfront, so apologies for the deception. I figured if she was right and the thing you said was racist I could try and explain it to you in less aggressive terms, and if she was wrong then I could just be an example that not everyone on the left thinks like her. One final little thing that's less about this situation specifically, and more just advice in general. It's possible to say racist things, without actually being a racist. Most people who say things that are offensive haven't understood or considered why they would be. And you can't truly be "a racist" without that understanding, I don't think. Perhaps you need to consider if the things you say are racist, even if you know you yourself are not.

So the comment about immigrants coming here and doing better than whites is because we only import the most educated and wealthy people of other countries... thats a little known fact that puts a different spin on the type of blacks that are newly here vs the type of blacks who's ancestors were enslaved. I agree with the examples given but your message isn't promoting reconciliation... there are bigger issues out there other than brands... encourage people to listen with compassion because there are people like my black husband and my black kids who experience being different in a majority white community

This was a comedy bit! LOL! You are a genius Dennis Prager... everything is so absurd it becomes sadly amusing. Love your videos and talk show. 3 out of my 4 children (ages 23, 14, 8). We loved experiencing Passover at your table. We love coming into your home at your fireside. We have your books, as a family we refer to your Rational Bibles all the time, it’s changed our family. (Ready for more, lol). Your wisdom is truly valued in our household as is the truth. My 14yr old daughter watches Prager U videos not only for the information, but bc, as she would say, “they give me the words to explain to my peers the difference between right and wrong and the truth and feelings.” You, Dennis, enrich our lives. God truly uses you everyday more than you know. God bless. ❤️🙏🏼❤️

Racist accusations are merely an effort to force white people into compliance with the radical progressive political agenda, either by playing on white guilt or making them fear the consequences of non-compliance. But it's curious that Uncle Ben & the Redskins come under fire and statues of Lincoln & Fredrick Douglass get torn down, no one says a word about the namesake of Yale University, Elihu Yale, an actual slave trader.* *: Apologists for Yale University claim this isn't true, despite evidence to the contrary. But like so many things in the world today, there are double-standards applied, depending on what side of the political fence the offender happens to be on.

Leftism may be appealing but only for those with a shallow perception. The Left is not Virtuous, It is only hypocritically virtue signaling... It is not really virtuous as it is not love driven but hate driven. The left is not helping to raise the oppressed groups from oppression, it is merely trying to oppress the "supposedly" oppressors. Ridiculously those on the left also get to decided who are oppressors, based on their whim. The left does not love the poor, it merely hates the rich. Being Black does not mean you are, or even were, a slave. Being White does not mean you are, or even were, a slave owner. Being stupid however, comes in both colours.

I hope she has people to be sad with, and that eventually the good memories will bring comfort. We can be absolutely sure we will see our loved ones again, but we still miss them, terribly while we are apart. Grieving is important.

I love you, Dennis! I haven't had such a good laugh in a while, imagining a team called The Jews (The Fighting Jews? Maybe?) . I think it would work for the "Give me a J! Give me an E! " that cheerleaders do at games, but Hebrews was even funnier. Then my friend and I tried it with "Israelites", and that would be a longer cheer, but we like!! Thank you for being such an honestly decent gentleman, and for your great perspectives on important things. This Christian always cheers for the Jews.

How utterly absurd! NO one who marched in a demonstration this year or last year, marched so Aunt Jemima, Uncle Ben or the Redskins would change their names. No one. Communism, liberalism, fascism, conservativism, political idealism are not racism, not equal to it, not comparable to it. No one believes that buildings, police or statues are the cause of racism/white supremacy. They have also done nothing to solve the problem of racism, the practice & dynamic of which does impact Outcomes for all Nonwhite people-globally. If Nonwhite people find no better alternative than to leave their home nation states (concepts), for purposes of migration to the United States concept, then the universal dynamic most to blame for that sad condition is racism/white supremacy. Its power is real. Its Outcomes are certainly real. Its reach is global or there would be no people classified as White on the planet today. In fact, there would be no application forms asking that question of anyone. There would be no birth certificates designating one’s “race,” nor state IDs issued for purposes of so classifying human beings. Minimizing its impact is a luxury only affordable to the same race of people who invented “race,” who structure & maintain the racial system which produces systemic outcomes, consciously or subconsciously, in which the power dynamic is favorable to them-and only to them. No one else is benefitting, profiting, arriving at affluence, glorification, or privilege because of their “race.” All other people classified as Nonwhite can be and are subject to being harmed-for their “race.” To some degree or the other. Racism exists as long as melanin is assigned valuation of “good” or “bad.” As long as patterns in thoughts, speech, actions, emotional responses skew in favorable terms toward preserving and protecting the condition of being “white,” which biologically is certainly not a “race,” but which politically & socially is an advantage globally-in all areas of human activity. Corporate name changes are publicity stunts designed to manipulate, confuse, control & dominate people, for the ultimate purpose of mistreating Nonwhite people. If their reaction to their mistreatment is “violent,” so is the language used to justify the violence used against them. Just one more way to keep perpetuating & justifying harm. So is the systemic lack of outreach. So is their disinheritance. So is their mass incarceration. Their segregation into ghettos. Their systemic miseducation. Their impoverishment. Their removal from livelihoods. Their exclusion from all opportunity to establish businesses, to participate ‘equally’ in anything of material benefit. All of which are routinely blamed on those who ARE indeed victimized-by persons who rely on their skin to obtain every power, every privilege, every paycheck they get & whose eternal pattern of perception is that they “deserve” these benefits & that they “belong” everywhere, with an equal measure of perception that all Nonwhite people do not, according to their valuation on the color spectrum. And, as we have daily proof-nothing else. Not only blamed on Nonwhite people, but carried out, enforced & deliberately structured by those with FAR more power, privileges, & authorization than any Nonwhite person or group of Nonwhite people have ever had. Power means the ability to affect outcomes-NOT the ability to be confused, dominated, exploited & mistreated in the outcome. But for racism/white supremacy, according to logic, the Outcomes would have gone differently many centuries ago.🌱 🇺🇸

These arguments just take away from actual racism changing a brand or team name does nothing it’s just white brand owners claiming to be anti racist then other bigoted people say hey you’re dumb. NO SHIT how about focusing on the root causes of impoverished communities, lack of funding for education, resources etc. One of the benefits of being American is being able to stand up a call out its flaws without fear of repercussion.

"Racism is evil--okay? It's a given." Is it evil, or just a mistake? Nineteenth-century Europeans casting about for reasons why their basically white continent had somehow managed to subordinate the rest of the planet to its will, and having just been exposed to Darwin's new insights into evolution, were bound to hypothesize that they could be more highly evolved than the people they were dominating. A 'survival of the fittest' hierarchy with whites at the top made sense of all the data; it explained why whites were so far in the lead industrially, technologically, managerially, militarily and educationally, and why they lived in bricks and mortar houses on paved streets with public lighting and public transportation, instead of in grass huts with dirt floors indistinguishable from the dirt of jungle trails. Some white European homes even had books, and tenants literate enough to read them. Increasing literacy allowed white societies to share information and generate new ideas on a scale that put them in a different class than less literate societies. Inevitably, some whites exploited their advantages over nonwhites in unethical ways, mass enslavement being the most egregious example. But it doesn't follow that inferring that these advantages owed something to racial differences was evil; this conclusion seemed plausible and logical. If it no longer seems so today it isn't because we're dramatically less evil than our forefathers but because we know more about environmental influences on population groups. We also have a better understanding of the complexity of societies previously dismissed as 'savage,' and of evolution itself. We know we're all equally evolved.

As always, Dennis Prager and reality are not friends and the sad thing is that his brainwashed followers never fact check his lies. Uncle Ben was not an entrepreneur, the entrepreneurs name was Gordon L. Harwell, who is white. The image of "Uncle Ben" is based on black hotel employee carrying bags and the name comes from an African-American rice grower, who has nothing to do with the product. The absurd thing is, that no matter how many lies Prager tells, his following will always agree as long as he tells them what they want to hear.

"Half of what I read, I don't agree with." Frame it! For me it's even more than half... and the agreement/disagreement bifurcation is rarely categorical and certainly doesn't map political or ideological divisions. I'm a retired reference librarian with lifelong interests in philosophy, literature and intellectual history. If you want to live and die without having understood a single thing that ever happened to you, by all means go ahead and purify your reading. I'll continue to cannibalize right, left, men, women, gays, straights, management, labour, theists, atheists (etc.) indiscriminately for whatever insights are on offer. The ratio of chaff to wheat is always higher than one would like, but you can find kernels of wheat in the unlikeliest places.

Uncle Ben, Cream of Wheat's Rastus, Aunt Jemima, The Washington Redskins, The Cleveland Indians, The Atlanta Braves, and my mother's old school mascot was called "The Terror Tribe". Young people today are indoctrinated instead of educated now. Too bad they do NOT "'KNOW"' the truths about true socialism & communism. They are indoctrinated to believe that everyone is special and entitled to free everything. Socialist governments actually treat their subjects as dispensable & disposable chatle. This is the exact opposite as all of the lies that they have been told in school. You mentioned Pravda, and Pravda would somewhat prove that in the propaganda that it once spread.

The microaggressions you reference are a red herring to the discussion we should be engaging in about institutional racism. For all who love and uphold the American Constitution and its amendments, we should be appalled at the stories of Elijah McClain, Breonna Taylor, Atalianna Jefferson, Tamir Rice, Ismael Lopez, Duncan Lemp, Amadou Diallo, Aiyana Stanly Jones, Stephon Clark, Philando Castile, George Floyd and literally dozens of others. Fourth, Fifth, Sixth and/or Eighth amendment rights were trampled on in so many of these cases. There is a nationwide chorus of voices and evidence that constitutional rights of American citizens are not being equitably observed. It's the elephant in the room your video fails to address. Your video addresses discussions of slavery but not those of recent Jim Crow laws. Brown vs the Board of Education was passed in my grandparents' lifetime. Ruby Bridges is 65 years old today. We still have work today towards 14th Amendment rights violations in America which have lingered after the Civil Rights Movement. Redlining was banned in 1968, but the equity opportunities that were lost were never acknowledged. Why does our nations history books today sideline the stories of Crispus Attucks, William Hamilton, Benjamin Banneker, Richard Allen, and others? This video titles itself around a term coined by Ibram X Kendi without debating any of his thoughts or ideas. It's easy to attack a strawman.

Capitalist are pandering to the anti-racist left crowd and saying they’re for us and for people to say that “oh now America is less racist so you can stop fighting” it’s empty change. I have never met a single person who asked for any of these changes it’s pandering.

I disagree. Here is an example of why this man doesn’t get it. When you are hurting someone ( purposefully or not) and the person says “Hey you’re hurting me” The person doing the hurting doesn’t just get to say “No I’m not” or I was only playing or something like that because that person has still felt the pain of the hurting despite your belief that you were actually hurting them. The action causing the pain is what should be focused on. Not whether the person intended it that way or not.

One way to get people interested in learning is possibly by asking them which country is it that you would prefer to be in if you didn’t live in America… Then, you could explore what they like about the country and how that country runs… It will become apparent that what they’re thinking is inconsistent with what really is. Just an idea! We don’t want to convince them of anything… We want themTo do the work to convince themselves!

My grandparents on my father's side were Croatian most of their relatives moved to the US one moved back. The rest remained here and thrived. Now no one in this country even blinks to hear a Slav name except trying to pronounce it correctly.

The word Anti has another meaning. It also means “Substitute” or “Instead of”. Like the term Anti-Pope. So by definition, these “Anti-Racists” are truly living up to their name, which are “Substitute Racists”.

Von Neubauer are we then applying that logic to anti abortion? Anti gun reform? Anti gay marriage? Anti immigration?

You don't have to convince me the BLM movement is absolutely nuts. It's a movement based on emotion and not on logic.

I lost my job as a machinist back in 2010. I qualified for re-educuation under TRA, the Trade Requirement Act, because my company closed the plant I worked at and outsourced my job. I decided to go to college at age 53 (having never went) to earn a degree and hopefully start a new career. During the summer courses I took, I had a history class taught by a white woman who made it her agenda to bash white men at every opportunity. Now, I love history, and I thought this class would be one that I would enjoy... WRONG!! I love history so I participated in class as much as possible, I sat in the front of the room for every class but I eventually got so sick of hearing how the white man was the embodiment of all the evil on this planet. One morning I came in and sat in the back. When my instructor came in, she noticed and said, "Oh, I see you're in the back, are you getting tired of me hacking on the white male?" I replied, "Well actually I'm proud to be a white male". I then told her that I had worked with black men my age who had told me they did not want their children to marry whites. They were black, their parents were black, their children were black AND... they wanted their grandchildren to be black!! She told me "Oh yes, I've heard that as well". I then asked, "Do you know why that is?... It's because they wanted their future generations to retain their identity as black people. To which she replied, "Oh yes, you're correct!" I then asked, "So... why is it racist if a white person feels the same?"... SHE CAME UNGLUED BECAUSE SHE COULDN'T ANSWER!!!

Red Mesa High School Redskins: It's in Teec Nos Pos, AZ near Four Corners. I pointed it out to my daughters as we drove by as an object lesson. Growing up next to the Reservation I had lots of schoolmates who were 100% Native American. Not one ever complained about the term "Redskins."
