  • Obama to Black Pastors: Choose You This Day Whom ye will Serve

    05/14/2012 9:09:58 PM PDT · by publius321 · 18 replies
    After making his "historic" remarks on same-sex unions last week, President Barack Obama led a conference call with black church pastors to explain his support for gay marriage, the New York Times reported that the call was held with "eight or so African-American ministers. "They were wrestling with their ability to get over his theological position," the Rev. Delman Coates, a Maryland pastor who was on the call, told the NY Times. The title of the article was "Obama calls pastors to explain gay marriage support; black churches ‘conflicted’ "Conflicted"? There really is no reason to be conflicted. They either...

Rick Sanchez of CNN's League of First Time Voters expresses shock that three black men interviewed will not be voting for, Barack Obama. Sanchez goes as far as asking the men if they are "sellouts". He also questions one of the men as to whether "there is any source of pride" that would cause them to vote for Obama. Do you think Sanchez would ever ask a white person if there was "any source of pride" that would make them want to vote...

We are still seeing the most ridiculous reaction to the killing in Florida of the black teenager, Trayvon Martin, by the neighborhood watchman, George Zimmerman, who claims to have been acting in self-defense. The disgusting overreaction by race-baiting black leaders is grossly irrational, because these people are calling for violence and working their followers up into a senseless...

    Most of us have heard about how the media won't report on black-on-white crime. We also may know that authorities sometimes sweep it under the rug due to political pressure, usually with a wink and a nod. But not so in rural Alabama, where the police actually told a white crime victim that they "don't mess" with a local black motorcycle gang. The tragic event that led to this shocking admission occurred on March 28, as truck driver Nick Stokes and neighbor Johnathan Cooper were heading out of Birmingham hauling a portable cabin. While rounding a curve, one of Stokes'...

The family member believes the reason Holder hasn’t made those arrests is because he, like the members of the New Black Panther Party, is black. “I am writing you to ask you why, when...

One of the earliest scenes of the Autobiography of Malcolm X takes us to the Lansing, Mich., of 1929. Malcolm's father, Earl Little, a Baptist minister derided as "uppity" for aspiring to own a store and live outside the city's traditional black neighborhoods, shot a pistol one night at a pair of white men who'd apparently set the family's home ablaze. In the following weeks, the police regularly searched the new Little residence, "looking for a gun." The pistol, which officials...

Moore's friends say that he was zapped with a tazer and then stomped on after he fell to the crowd. The victim suffered several serious head injuries...

The company was owned by a local family. One day, one of the sons, a grubby high-school dropout, trudged past me, walked into the bathroom, then came out and ordered me to clean it. When I said that wasn’t in my job description, he replied, his voice low and rotten, “You know, we give you people a chance to work.” Then he turned and mumbled, “But you’re...

One of the front-page headlines said: "White-Black Disparity in Income Narrowed in 80's, Census Shows." The 1980s? Wasn't that the years of the Reagan administration, the "decade of greed," the era of "neglect" of the poor and minorities, if not "covert racism"?

    Mitt Romney was supposedly named after the mitt-shaped borders of Michigan. He needs to win Michigan or his credibility may vaporize. But he seems to be neglecting the one key area that could swing the vote over to him: winning the African-American vote in suburban Detroit. Bill Cosby's cousin, Merisa Davis, just released a book of how the average Black family in American is socially conservative. Most White people don't know this but most Black moms are pro-life. Mitt probably has not courted that vote, much to his peril. More insight on conservative Black families: “BILL COSBY IS RIGHT” book...

We also commemorate President’s Day as well as every lover’s favorite, Valentine’s Day. February has also been reserved as Black History Month. After doing just a little digging, I was struck by the significant role the Republican Party played in not only emancipating slaves in the antebellum South, but also in accepting and elevating them into American society. I was also amazed by how often the Democratic Party thwarted the GOP’s efforts.

Champion's parents Tuesday said while they don't think Champion was beaten just because of his sexual orientation they plan to sue Florida A&M, which their lawyer, Christopher Chestnut, said "has a 50-year history, a culture in this band, of hazing," WTVT-TV, Tampa,Fla., reported Tuesday.

It would hurt the employees of the stores. Of course, the Occupy mob does not care about them. Their goal is very simple. They want to crash the economy. The more people they can force out of work, they believe the greater will be the demand for revolution. We have to answer them. Our answer is simple.

    There has been a ton of backlash from the media for Michelle Obama being booed at the Ford 400 at the Homestead-Miami Speedway in Florida on Sunday.

Grateful for an opportunity to enlighten indoctrinated blacks, I asked the website publisher to publicly post my reply to the ill-informed subscriber's comment. Please do not think me rude or mean by stating the following...
