  • Fear of a Black President

    The Atlantic ^ | September 2012 | Ta-Nehisi Coates
    The irony of President Barack Obama is best captured in his comments on the death of Trayvon Martin, and the ensuing fray. Obama has pitched his presidency as a monument to moderation. He peppers his speeches with nods to ideas originally held by conservatives. He routinely cites Ronald Reagan. He effusively praises the enduring wisdom of the American people, and believes that the height of insight lies in the town square. Despite his sloganeering for change and progress, Obama is a conservative revolutionary, and nowhere is his conservative character revealed more than in the very sphere where he holds singular...
  • Empowerment Temple Calls a “Code Red” in Preparation for 2012 Election (Black "Leaders" in a panic)

    It’s Friday evening. The air is cool and the sky is clear. A group of well-dressed men and women gather at Empowerment Temple in West Baltimore at an event designed to spur people to register and vote in the upcoming election and those that will follow. Inside the church, a panel of distinguished guests has their audience's full attention. CNN commentator Roland Martin asked the panel--including the Rev. Jesse L. Jackson, former Rep. John Conyers, BET commentator Jeff Johnson, Bishop Vashti McKenzie and several others--what they perceived to be the biggest problem among Blacks and how that problem could be...

    Black history hasn’t taught us much, or so it seems when we see it continually reduced to a self-serving prop by those who regard it as a tool for advancement. Joe Biden telling a Virginia crowd of blacks that GOP policies are “gonna put y’all back in chains” is just any echo of shameless exploitations we’ve all heard before.
  • What Some People Hear When Mitt Romney Talks About Welfare [RACISM!!] (FreeRepublic cited)

    The Atlantic ^ | August 15, 2012 | Elspeth Reeve
    Why are Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan talking about welfare so much? It doesn't have anything to do with the economy. It's not a big part of the budget. And the claim that President Obama "gutted" the requirement that recipients try to find work is false. Yet they've mentioned it in several speeches, and the campaign has released ads about it. Why? Racism, according to some liberal reporters. It's not that Romney or Ryan are racist, it's that their campaign knows that a lot of white voters—but definitely not all—are, and they want to make sure those people vote for...
  • Can stuff like this cut into Obama's Latino Vote? (Vanity)

    It's common knowledge that there is much distrust and dislike between the Latino and Black communities; for whatever reasons. (For one thing, some Blacks feel like Latinos come here and cut into their Entitlements.) Now, I read an article today that says 7 Latino Elementary School students, in Camden, New Jersey, won a $500,000 lawsuit against a School District and a Black school vice principal. There is already "discord" among Blacks and Latinos in Camden (per the article). The reason for the lawsuit: A Latino child spilled water, and for punishment, 15 Latino kids had to eat off of tray...
  • Obama's latest election tactic: Judge Judy

    08/04/2012 10:43:38 PM PDT · by 2ndDivisionVet · 17 replies
    AMONG the ads for toothpaste and dish detergent, the loyal viewers of daytime television are seeing a new pitch: Support President Obama. Judge Judy, in fact, has become one of the favourite venues for the Obama campaign and its allies to reach sympathetic voters. When the courtroom reality show featuring a sharp-tongued former judge airs in swing states, it often comes with ads telling viewers that Republican candidate Mitt Romney uses tax havens and as a businessman has shipped jobs overseas. The show is considered an ideal vehicle for commercials pushing the president's re-election because such courtroom programs are watched...
  • Heads he loses; tails we win: Barack Obama’s walk down the Gay marriage plank

    As November gets closer, with few options open to him, Barack Obama has elected to gamble that he can walk on a very narrow plank to victory. In May when Obama “evolved” back to being for Gay “marriage” he was taking a calculated risk. He knew, or should have known, that he would face a strong backlash from his African American base. When the backlash came, was a lot stronger than anyone would have expected. In 2008 Blacks flocked to the polls to vote for Obama at a 95% rate. That surge was enough put him over the top and...

    It shouldn’t matter that I, an author with the audacity to select such a title, am black. The arguments presented should stand or fall on their objective merit. Nevertheless, I declare my racial identity at the outset to defuse any prejudice readers may bring regarding the motivation behind this piece. Indeed, it is in part because I am black that the following must be said. All things considered, blacks and the civil rights culture surrounding them are the most open and prolific purveyors of racism in America. This is an ironic travesty which spits upon the graves of history’s abolitionists...
  • Star Parker: Chick-fil-A protest could set back gay activism

    The current hate campaign being waged by homosexual activists against fast food chain Chick-fil-A, because of the firm's Christian values, may well turn out to be a bridge too far. The effort may prove to be a setback for homosexual activism. The vile attacks on the firm and its owners, the Cathy family, should make clear, finally, that the "gay rights" movement is not about refining and advancing American freedom, but about rewriting American values and advancing, not freedom, but the homosexual political agenda.--snip-- When Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy made his now famous incendiary admission that "we are very much...

    HIV-AIDS is affecting black gay men in the United States on a scale unseen among any other group in the developed world, said a report issued Wednesday ahead of the International AIDS Conference. So grave is the crisis that in some US cities, one in two black men who have sex with other men are HIV positive, according to the report from the Black AIDS Institute, the only national HIV-AIDS think tank focusing on African Americans. "AIDS in America is a black disease, no matter how you look at it," its president and chief executive Phill Wilson, who is himself...

    Tulsa police are investigating a deadly double shooting near the Best Buy at 5520 East Skelly Drive. According to officers, around 2:30p.m. Saturday, a car pulled up to the Best Buy and a man inside got into an argument with another man standing out front. The man in the car pulled out a gun and shot at least nine bullets towards the store, said police. The man involved in the argument was hit, along with an innocent bystander. The bystander was inside the store with his 4-year-old granddaughter.

    The New American ^ | 13 July 2012 | Selwyn Duke
    One of man’s faults is that he always swings from one extreme to another, without taking more than a pit stop in that lonely land called Enlightened Distinction. For example, it’s understandable that the French Revolutionaries would have adopted “égalité!” as part of their battle cry, coming as they did from a society in which class distinctions trumped all. But now we’ve come full circle, from preserving group-defined inequality regardless of merit — to enforcing group-defined equality regardless of merit. A case in point is a recent ruling mandating that New York City must hire unqualified black and Hispanic firefighters....

Nonetheless, the audience greeted Romney respectfully when he first stepped to the podium. That tenuous respect, however, quickly dissipated when Romney began to talk about Obama. Murmurs of disapproval ran through the crowd when the...

    On a late June Friday evening, Marc Heinberg, a 61-year old man, was walking home from synagogue along Gravesend Neck Road; Neck Road to the locals. Neck Road is classic Brooklyn; a scattering of modest brick houses along a tree-lined street, but a short walk down “The Neck” takes you to Nostrand Avenue and from there to the Sheepshead-Nostrand housing projects where crime is common and life is cheap. Sheepshead-Nostrand, where drug deals go down, shots are fired and gruesome murders are a local tradition, and the tree-lined portion of “The Neck” where Marc Heinberg was walking home, are two...

    Relatives of four men arrested for allegedly attacking random people in Wrigleyville Sunday morning said the group was shooting a music video. Family members said the group, which goes by the name Chicago Maverick, was shooting a video for a song called "Take a Sip." They said the group was being taunted by people on the street and was the target of racial epithets. The comments came after a Cook County judge on Monday ordered Corry Simmons, 32, of the 1800 Block of South Ridgeway; Donald Robinson, 31, of the 1800 Block of South Ridgeway; and his cousin Edward Robinson,...

    After sharing in-depth research and the perspective of Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) on the controversial — and painful — topic of reparations, NewsOne readers processed that information in a survey that asked tough, pointed questions on the subject that has long haunted Black America. To conclude our series, we asked for the invaluable expert opinion of Dr. Ivory Toldson, associate professor at Howard University School of Education, senior research analyst for the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, and the editor-in-chief of the Journal of Negro Education, and Attorney Kia Baldwin Richardson, a criminal lawyer practicing in Louisiana. Their perspectives on reparations...

    I woke up this morning asking God if I could make a trade. Similar to the NBA, when you have one player on the team who isn’t performing at the level you’d hoped, you try to get someone else who fits the criteria necessary to help the team find victory. In this case, we are playing for Team Black America. Of course I know that America is not the kind of country that would elect someone like Father Michael Pfleger as its president. Father Pfleger is the kind of pastor that becomes the nightmare of anyone who chooses to live...

    How to get kicked off black radio station. Turns out, it is not that hard. Just follow these directions. First, write a book about race. In my case, the book is “White Girl Bleed a Lot: The return of racial violence to America and how the media ignore it.” Then write an article for WND about how Chicago is Ground Zero for this new epidemic of racial crime and violence.
  • James Q. Wilson (2008): Do Blacks Treat Jews in the Same Manner in Which Jews Treat Evangelicals?

    06/28/2012 10:07:31 AM PDT · by pinochet · 168 replies
    The late conservative sociologist and evangelical Christian, James Q. Wilson, made an interesting observation on the manner in which Blacks, Jews, and Evangelicals relate to one another. Here is his fascinating 2008 article: Here is a summary of his article. White Evangelical Christians are the strongest supporters of Israel in America, and their support for Israel comes from their religious beliefs that Israel is a fulfillment of scripture. But most American Jews have never been great fans of evangelicals, despite great efforts on the part of evangelicals to reach out to Jews. Jews are the one white ethnic group,...
