Alanna Smith's dedication to her sport is profound. Just listening to the elite high school track star explain her training schedule is exhausting. Yet no matter how hard she trains, if she has to compete against biological males, she stands no chance of winning.

"There is simply a biological advantage that males have over females," explained the daughter of baseball Hall of Fame pitcher Lee Smith.

"Here is a perfect example," Smith told me. "I have a twin brother who is an athlete but does not run competitively for his sports. We raced against each other recently, and he beat me. Not because he trained harder, but because there are biological and physical advantages boys have over girls in some sports."

The issue of reparations to Black Americans as payment for damage done as a result of years of legal slavery and subsequent discrimination is back on the table.

The House Judiciary Committee just held hearings on H.R. 40, which would establish a commission to look into ways in which African Americans could be compensated, including possible payments of trillions of dollars to individuals.

The commission would examine the role of government in supporting the institution of slavery, "discrimination in the public and private sectors against freed African slaves and their descendants" and "lingering negative effects of the institution of slavery ... on living African Americans and on society."

When will Black History Month be ... history?

Apart from the bizarre notion that educators should set aside one month to salute the historical achievements of one race apart from and above the historical achievements of other races, Black History Month appears to omit a lot of Black history.

About slavery, do our mostly left-wing educators teach that slavery was not unique to America and is as old as humankind? As economist and author Thomas Sowell says: "More whites were brought as slaves to North Africa than Blacks brought as slaves to the United States or to the 13 colonies from which it was formed. White slaves were still being bought and sold in the Ottoman Empire, decades after Blacks were freed in the United States."

Former President Donald Trump captured the core of the problem in his official statement following his acquittal in the Senate impeachment trial: "It is a sad commentary on our times that one political party in America is given a free pass to denigrate the rule of law, defame law enforcement, cheer mobs, excuse rioters, and transform justice into a tool of political vengeance, and persecute, blacklist, cancel and suppress all people and viewpoints with whom or which they disagree."

Black Lives Matter was a faithful backer of the Joe Biden and Kamala Harris ticket for the 2020 election.  They went to the mat, protested police, burned down cities, and Black-owned businesses, all for Joe Biden and kamala Harris.

Both Biden and Harris were all for their support which by their belief pushed the campaign over the top to win.  The Black Lives Matter movement raised $10.6 billion in 2020 through their website.  The contribution interface is nothing more than a link to actblue.com, also known as the Democrat party donation portal.  BLM encourages visitors to donate to the cause of stopping racism and helping the African American community achieve social justice.

True Patriots understand that Covid-19 was used as a propaganda instrument by the Marxist element on our shores.  While the loss of life for those who contracted the China-Flu is heartbreaking, and those who were stripped of their civil liberties by the stroke of the Executive Order pens seem unimaginable, undemocratic,  unconstitutional, and palpably disturbing, there may be light at the end of the Covid-10 indoctrination.  One word:  EDUCATION.

PITTSBURGH -- One year ago, Lena Carson was pulling straight A's at the city's Creative and Performing Arts Magnet school, located across the river from her parents' home. She also swam at the local YMCA every day in preparation for the annual state competition and enjoyed the everyday social life of a teenager.

Today, she is sitting at home. Again.
