Tim Wise, “Fighting the Normalization of Inequality,” All Saints Church, Pasadena, 4/28/13

My presentation at All Saints Church, Pasadena, CA, 4/28/13, to discuss the normalization of inequality, and the intersectionality of race, sex, class, militarism, terrorism and environmental catastrophe

Tim Wise at Providence College, “Diversity, Racism and the Trouble With Colorblindness,” February 20, 2013

My entire speech at Providence College, 2/20/2013. By all means, watch the entire speech, rather than the snippets posted by various websites, which they are using so as to suggest that I “attacked the Catholic Church,” or demeaned Catholicism — both of which are absurd arguments made by liars…which is to say, by right-wingers. Same [...]

Hearing No Evil: The Amazing Obtuseness of Campus Conservatives

Seems like every young conservative with a phone cam thinks they’re James O’Keefe. Sadly for them, since there’s no Andrew Breitbart left to selectively edit and post their handiwork, thereby making it seem a lot more damning than it really is, they’re reduced to making even the most obvious, historically inarguable comments by those of [...]

What’s the Matter With White Folks? Race, Class and Voting Behavior in U.S. Elections

A radio-based presentation/seminar from 2006, in which I analyze the longstanding tendency for so many white, lower-middle class/working class voters to vote against their apparent economic interests — by supporting candidates whose economic policies benefit mostly the wealthy — and attempt to explain why this happens. Specifically, I explore the inadequacies of existing theories to [...]

Tim Wise MLK Speech 2010 – Fountain Baptist Church – Summit NJ

Here is my 2010 MLK Day Speech at Fountain Baptist Church in Summit, NJ. I posted this before, but I have just started using Soundcloud and uploading audio files there, so because this one sometimes doesn’t work on the old server where it was located, I have put it here.

Of Broken Clocks, Presidential Candidates, and the Confusion of Certain White Liberals

This commentary is rated MA for mature audiences. It contains some foul language, although honestly, only so much as is needed to get the damned point across. Parental discretion is advised… Attention to all self-proclaimed liberals and progressives. I would like to properly introduce you to a man about whom you’ve heard much — especially [...]

Child Abuse by Any Other Name: When Ignorance and Bigotry Become Parental “Rights”

Some things stick with you. I can still recall, vividly in fact, an exchange I had with a woman in one of my audiences seventeen years ago, who had come to my talk at Kansas City Community College: an address in which I examined the intersectionality of racism and heterosexism. The woman, who identified herself [...]

“Why Can’t They Just Say Stop It?” Reflections on Terror and the Cycle of Indifference

I knew it was a conversation that at some point I would have to indulge; and last night, amid commemorative news coverage of the events of September 11, 2001, it became apparent that the time had come. Although I had previously discussed the events of that day and the aftermath of those events with our [...]

New Report on Tea Party Movement: Racist, Christian Supremacist Ties Documented

For those who still refuse to believe that the Tea Party movement is thoroughly infested with racists, white nationalists, Christian supremacists and assorted extremists — and who cleave to the lie that they are only protesting “big government,” taxes and deficits – this report completely demolishes any legitimacy to the latter, sanguine view. Put together for [...]

Catching Up – News Bits and Bytes for the Past Week

I’ve been unable to post for a few days , due to hectic travel and difficulty figuring out how to embed links to the site using my iPad (which is all I had with me on the road), because for some reason the editing options for WordPress sites are different on the iPad than a [...]
