Todd Starnes Show Recap - Aug 21
A Brooklyn Law School professor alleges the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse is racist -- because it happened in a region of the country sparsely populated by black people. Whether or not her Professor Ristroph was delving into satire -- well -- you be the judge:
"On August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse will arrive mid-morning on the coast of Oregon. The moon’s shadow will be about 70 miles wide, and it will race across the country faster than the speed of sound, exiting the eastern seaboard shortly before 3 p.m. local time. It has been dubbed the Great American Eclipse, and along most of its path, there live almost no black people."
The essay was published in the once-renowned The Atlantic magazine. You can read the entire article by clicking here.

The events in Charlottesville is really just "good versus evil," Falwell said, adding that we need to unite. "I was so proud of our president calling out these evil men by their name...He doesn't have a racist bone in his body."
"Our history is what it is...I don't know why anybody would want to hide what our history is...You teach them why it was wrong that slavery exists," Falwell said, "but it was the Democratic Party who supported slavery...Jim Crow laws..."
The President of Liberty University said "it's a joke" about grads who sent their diplomas back to LU over Trump comments. Falwell said the graduates will probably be using the diplomas when they apply for their next job.
