    Members of the University of Michigan Black Student Union said they would have to resort to “physical action” if a list of seven demands issued on Martin Luther King Day are not met within seven days, The Ann Arbor News reported. “If negotiations are not complete we will be forced to do more, beginning to increase valiantly our activism for social progress and take physical actions on the University of Michigan’s campus,” said senior Shayla Scales to a group of students gathered on campus, according to the Ann Arbor News. The seven demands, read aloud by an activist associated with...

    Mayoral front-runner Bill de Blasio stood silently by as celebrity booster Harry Belafonte compared the Tea Party-supporting Koch brothers to the Ku Klux Klan inside a Harlem Church on Sunday — then let the inflammatory attack slide as he spoke to the overflow congregation. De Blasio warmly embraced Belafonte after the liberal icon called the Kochs “white supremacists” and “men of evil,” and repeatedly praised the actor during his own speech from the pulpit of the First Corinthian Baptist Church. Belafonte, 87, viciously tore into billionaire energy moguls and political activists Charles and David Koch as he introduced de Blasio...

    Appearing on MSNBC, singer and former civil rights icon Harry Belafonte told President Barack Obama how he should take control of the political debate. His answer? Jail opponents. “That there should be this lingering infestation of really corrupt people who sit trying to dismantle the wishes of the people, the mandate that has been given to Barack Obama, and I don’t know what more they want,” Belafonte told race hustler Al Sharpton. “The only thing left for Barack Obama to do is to work like a third world dictator and just put all these guys in jail.”

    Harry Belafonte in recent years has been positively Kanye-esque in his outspokenness. The 85-year-old singer — a revered icon in American pop music, the King of Calypso, the resonant voice behind the 1956 classic “Day-O (The Banana Boat Song)” — has tallied headlines for his frank opinions on matters ranging from U.S. foreign policy to race relations. In 2002, Belafonte likened Secretary of State Colin Powell to a “house slave” for his acquiescence to the invasion of Iraq. He called President George W. Bush “the greatest tyrant in the world, the greatest terrorist in the world” during a 2006 meeting...

    During an appearance on the program of MSNBC’s race-baiter-in-chief Al Sharpton, entertainer Harry Belafonte lashed out at Republicans, saying that their continued presence in Washington, DC constituted an “infection” of sorts. He also told his host that the only thing left for Obama to do with opposition figures who continue to disagree with him was to “Work like a Third World dictator and just put all these guys in jail.” Belafonte’s totalitarian prescription elicited a laugh rather than horror from Sharpton.

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Singer and activist Harry Belafonte will be given this year's Living Legend Award by the Indiana Black Expo in July. Black Expo President and Chief Executive Tanya Bell says the term legend is sometimes casually applied to celebrities, but says Belafonte is genuinely legendary. The 85-year-old performer has pushed for political and social change for years. Belafonte worked closely with the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., and once bailed him out of jail in Birmingham, Ala. Belafonte also helped fund the inter-racial "Freedom Rides" that challenged Southern segregation, and helped organize the 1963 March on Washington. Indiana...

Today, it took only a few hours for him to respond to Cornel West and Harry Belafonte who, respectively, called for him to get off the “symbolic crack pipe” and stop being a “bad apple.” On Hannity tonight, Cain accused West of being “out of touch with the real world” and told Belafonte, “I left the Democratic plantation a long time ago.”Cain began addressing his harsh comments against the Occupy Wall Street protesters,...

    Is Barack Obama jealous of Harry Belafonte and Sidney Poitier?

About a month ago a member here posted a 2007 speech by Obama made at a church in Selma, Alabama, in part: What happened in Selma, Alabama and Birmingham also stirred the conscience of the nation.

    HE is a media darling, a paparazzi target and a source of inspiration for millions of Democrats who dream of retaking the White House in 2008. But Senator Barack Obama, the charismatic African-American who is shaking up the presidential primary race, has not impressed some of America’s most powerful black activists. Civil rights leaders who have dominated black politics for much of the past two decades have pointedly failed to embrace the 45-year-old Illinois senator who is considering a bid to become America’s first black president. At a meeting of activists in New York last week, the Rev Jesse Jackson,...

The event was held in the Duke Chapel, which seats about 1600 people. Every seat was filled plus about 200 more people sitting or standing. Many in attendance where adults from the Durham community, but there were certainly a fair number of students there as...

    Mitt Romney: The November Surprise by Carol Turoff January 14. 2006 An unlikely package of contrasts emerges from Leftachusetts. In a state that has kept dependable liberals Ted Kennedy (first elected in 1962) and John Kerry (1984) in the senate and Barney Frank (serving since 1980) among its congressional representatives, an atypical political figure has emerged on the Massachusetts horizon. Never previously having held elective office, Gov. Mitt Romney was elected in 2002 with a decisive margin. The son of George Romney, a former Cabinet member who served three terms as governor of Michigan, Mitt presents an intriguing Republican persona...

    Why God chose the Jews By Andrew Klavan THERE IS ONE good thing about anti-Semitism: It lets you know who the bad guys are. Right, left, black, white, freak or straight, the minute someone starts rattling on about the evil Jews, you know your train just pulled into Slimeball Station. All bigotry is wrong, of course, but there's something about this particular form of prejudice that's weirdly reliable as a sign of deeper wickedness. Perhaps it's because the Jews contributed so much to humanity's moral code that to hate them as a race is to despise the restraints of morality...

    _________________________________________ _________________________________________ Harry's latest 'boo-boo'--------------------------------------------------------Posted: January 13, 20061:00 a.m. Eastern© 2006 WorldNetDaily.com Just when you think the folks who comprise America's entertainment world can't sink to a new low in America-bashing, one of them goes and opens their mouth. The latest individual who seems to think the grass is greener on the totalitarian side of the world is crooner Harry Belafonte. Belafonte was leading a delegation of Americans to Venezuela to praise the nation's leader, leftist strongman, Hugo Chavez. Chavez has implemented a socialist takeover of Venezuela, and he sees himself in the style of one of his political...

    Sen. Hillary Clinton narrowly avoided political disaster yesterday by staying at least 15 feet away from Harry Belafonte at all times during the Children's Defense Fund lunch in the Rainbow Room. That, presumably, was a safe distance. With any luck, New York's junior senator won't be captured in any photographs - even those taken with a wideangle lens - cozying up to the tough-talking activist, who last weekend on a trip to Venezuela called President Bush "the greatest terrorist in the world." In Caracas, Belafonte also lavished praise on Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, saying: "We respect you, we admire you"...
