  • Media and Old Black Leaders Have Dishonored Trayvon Martin

    Members of the media and old black leaders have dishonored Trayvon Martin by portraying him as some type of defenseless child instead of the young man he was. Men like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton haven't used the b-word [hint it rhymes with Elroy] but they have implied it. At 17 Trayvon Martin was old enough to enlist in the army with parental consent. That made him a man. He was 5' 11" and weighed 158 pounds. We will never know for sure why Martin attacked the man named George Zimmerman, but it's possible Martin believed Zimmerman was stalking him...

    LOS ANGELES, July 25, 2013 — July 19 marked the 50th anniversary of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech. The commemoration of this powerful and world-changing oratory was co-opted for two reasons. One was President Obama’s impromptu ramblings on race a week after the Zimmerman acquittal. The other reason was the marches across 100 cities to protest that same verdict, and to put pressure on the Department of Justice to lodge civil rights charges against George Zimmerman. So how effective were the protests? If news coverage is any indication, not very. National papers like the New...

    Presently, the news cycles are being dominated by reports of the upcoming sequester. It is an important issue and one that I have written about myself, but frankly, I am a little tired of the hype it is receiving. There are other stories to write, other issues to discuss. Let's move from the financial scene of American government to something that is easily as important, the right of Americans to keep and bear arms. Yes, gun control is still in the news and black leaders are making their voices heard. If one listens to the narrative being told by the...

    Black community spokespersons tell us the black community is offended that all of Tiger Woods' mistresses are white. I find the whole black spokesperson thing absurd. The media runs to Sharpton, Jackson and others to get the official black America take on hot issues. Are we a tribe? Are these guys our chiefs? By the way, who are the spokespersons for white America? I am saddened that the sports icon is an adulterer and has destroyed his family and wholesome image. To the fact Tiger prefers white women, I say, so what? It is racist for these black liberal plantation...

    Black Leaders Question Remark - Clinton Defends Obama Comment WASHINGTON (Jan. 12) - The Clinton campaign moved Friday to try to quell a potentially damaging reaction to recent comments by Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton that have drawn criticism from African-Americans just as the presidential primary campaign reached Southern states with significant numbers of black voters. In a call on Friday to Al Sharpton’s nationally syndicated talk radio show, Mr. Clinton said that his "fairy tale" comment on Monday about Senator Barack Obama’s position on the Iraq war was being misconstrued, and that he was talking only about the...

    HYATTSVILLE, Md., April 29 (UPI) -- The television show "Commander In Chief" has angered black leaders with its depiction of a Washington suburb as poor and crime-ridden. In "Ties That Bind," which aired Thursday night, President Mackenzie Allen, portrayed by Geena Davis, sends 40 U.S. marshals into Prince George's County to stop a crime wave. The president makes a stop in Hyattsville, Md., where, standing in front of a soul food restaurant, she talks to local residents about high crime and a shortage of police.

    Rosa Park's legacy should not be compromised by civil rights leaders By Kevin Fobbs What Detroit and the nation saw with the funeral of civil rights legend Rosa Parks was not a celebration of her sainted effort to sit down for the freedom of generations to follow, but a marathon of speeches which were tied more to an agenda of liberal politics and causes than to the very simple, very heroic and very noble act which launched a civil rights revolution. I was perplexed by the length as much as I was mystified by many of the messages which were...

    “Over a decade ago, I began to realize that the so-called black leaders like Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan, Al Sharpton, and others were lying about why blacks are in trouble today,” writes a former welfare recipient-turned-ordained minister, mentor, entrepreneur and man of integrity. Reverend Jesse Lee Peterson, author of SCAM: How the Black Leadership Exploits Black America, has written a book in which truth fills every page. As I wrote in the first part of my review of SCAM, a black person who claims that black America’s biggest problem is not racism but its own immorality is a revolutionary in...

    In the early 20th century, black educational pioneer Booker T. Washington noted: "There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs - partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose their grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs." Sounds like Jesse...

Jackson's Rainbow Push Coalition is trying to rally the thousands of disenfranchised young Chicagoans unemployed or not in school. But a group of people unhappy with Jackson's leadership organized a protest of their own yesterday that sometimes drowned out the more-jobs message, reported WLS-TV in Chicago. With boos, bullhorns and verbal jabs, a group called VOTE said they had...

    Same-sex marriage is as controversial among local African-Americans as it is across the nation, but blacks are more likely than the population as a whole to oppose gay marriage, according to polls. "I'm glad there's a separation of church and state," said the Rev. J. Anthony Lloyd of Greater Framingham Community Church. "I'm not going to marry same-sex couples in my church." But the movement has gathered some high-profile supporters. The two African-American candidates for president, Carol Mosely Braun of Illinois and the Rev. Al Sharpton of New York, have previously spoken in favor of the rights of gays and...

    In an op-ed I recently wrote regarding the Kobe Bryant affair, I issued a clarion call to black leadership to begin holding black athletes and entertainers accountable for the destructive role models they set for the youth in our community. One of the points the op-ed makes is that the ongoing deterioration of values in mainstream popular American culture gives reason for an even greater sense of urgency among blacks to care for our own. The current dispute regarding display of a Ten Commandments monument in an Alabama courthouse supports my case. It says something about the moral state of...

    And our thanks to Townhall.com for bringing it to our attention today. Someone who calls himself "ransom" has a blog on the Internet. Last week he took some friends on a tour of D.C. and happened by the Lincoln Memorial just as some speakers were recognizing the 40th anniversary of Martin Luther King's "I have a dream" speech. Here are some of ransom's thoughts after that encounter:"I don't disagree that many black Americans remain oppressed, but I would argue that their oppressors are activist leaders within their own community. Some of them perpetuate victimization by ridiculing young black students who...

    Just once, I'd like to see black civil rights activists take to the streets to protest schools that miseducate black children. Just once, I'd like to see so-called black leaders up in arms about popular culture's casual acceptance of mediocrity (and worse) in black students. But that's not the typical story line of black protest in matters related to education. The plot, ever so predictable, usually goes like this: A black teacher or principal is fired. Black activists call a press conference to denounce the alleged racism of white school officials. Or, school officials propose that new teachers be required...

    Desperate times make black leaders more desperate This just in: The black "leadership" has spoken and war is not the answer. Though some 70 percent of Americans support the impending war against Iraq, you won't find a corresponding pro-American outcry from the black community. And it's no wonder: The reason that most blacks don't support the war is that most of their leaders are against it. Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, the Congressional Black Caucus and a cornucopia of embittered black church leaders and a slew of civil-rights degenerates have come out vocally and vengefully against the war. Let us go...

    David Paterson's election yesterday as leader of the state Senate Democrats is historic not only because he will be the first African-American to lead a party caucus in Albany, but because it may signal the emergence of a new generation of black leaders from under the shadow of Harlem's fading political old guard. It's about time. Look what happened in this month's elections to the old guard's leading lights: State Controller Carl McCall was trounced by Gov. Pataki. Denny Farrell, the longtime Harlem assemblyman and the state party chairman, couldn't get McCall elected with 2 million more registered Democrats than...
