PBS Talk Show Host Tavis Smiley and a variety of America's black leaders meet in Los Angeles, CA, for the 2009 "State of the Black Union." This day-long event is titled, "Making America As Good As Its Promise." This event will re-air on C-SPAN2, Friday, March 6 at 8pm (ET).
Is Mr. "no self segregation" Eric Holder in attendance?
When is the State of the Yellow Union up. Or Brown, or off grey or DARE I SAY WHITE? /s
>> “State of the Black Union.”
I thought we were all post racial and stuff now.
There ought not to BE any such thing as the “black union”.
There is only ONE union, and we’re all part of it. Right?
What am I missing here?
could it be that racism still exists — in the BLACKS attitudes?
I wonder what they think America has promised them.
I forget...when is the State of The White Union again? I also was looking for the date of the State of the Hispanic Union, but couldn’t find it either.
I’m just sayin’
And we need this why? Are my black neighbors not part of my nation as well? How do black American expect to be part of America if they constantly insist of excluding people who do not look like they do?
Oh and where is our post racial President. Shouldn’t he be helping with the healing or was his promise of a different dialogue between the races simply one more campaign con?
When will we have “The State of the White Union”? Although, I guess we know what that state is: Abused, Unappreciated and Broke.
Living in L.A. , the only times I see blacks are when they try to threaten passengers on the Red line and Blue Line.
And yes, Im not racist. I have witnessed it multiple times. So flame me..
12% of the population now not only wants, but EXPECTS to have their lives bettered by this President.
And it will never, ever be enough.
Squatters: That’s exactly what they are aren’t they. Amen?
Let me expalain your rights. You have the right to remain silent. You have the right to an attorney. If you can not afford one, one will be appointed by the court. . . .
Mortgage, Car payment and whatever else they need. Get out your checkbook.
The fact that these folks can get away with this crap without being called the racists that they are really speaks to the cowardice of this country on race relations.
But somehow I don’t think that’s what Holder’s talking about.
gas money...mortgage...free pie...
That 12% will riot in the streets and destroy their neighborhoods when Obama is defeated in 2012. Pretty hard to move forward when you let the lawless rule your life.
>The fact that these folks can get away with this crap without being called the racists that they are really speaks to the cowardice of this country on race relations.
But somehow I dont think thats what Holders talking about.<
Sorry, this was a semi-vanity post.
I can’t help it.
The sheer hypocrisy of it all really irritates me.
I’m with you...it’s VERY irritating,and wearing very,VERY thin.
Does this mean somewhere on the horizon, there’ll be a STATE OF THE WHITE UNION?
I thought we’re supposed to have yellow be mellow, let brown stick around, let white do what is right, I forget the others.............
I can tell you what this conference will conclude without hearing any of it. They will say that much progress has been made with the status of black people, but that much work remains to be done. They will say that the election of Obama shows what is possible, but that the election of a black president alone does not represent the final equality of black America. They will say that the promise of Brown vs. Board of Education has not been fully realized, and that schools need more resources. They will say that everyone needs to be active in their communities to fight against the problems found there. But they will say that government has a big role to play, with education and health care, to solve the remaining problems.
“let white do what is right”
Let black stop the attack...
Free houses, cars, welfare, and reparations for stuff that happened over a century ago...
