    While the crowd was indeed diverse, some students at the event questioned the practices of Mrs. Obama’s event coordinators, who handpicked the crowd sitting behind Mrs. Obama. The Tartan’s correspondents observed one event coordinator say to another, “Get me more white people, we need more white people.” To an Asian girl sitting in the back row, one coordinator said, “We’re moving you, sorry. It’s going to look so pretty, though.” “I didn’t know they would say, ‘We need a white person here,’ ” said attende....

    Date: 03/17/08 Category: LEADERSHIP What Kind of Pastor Condones Homosexuality, Killing Babies, and Racism (Acts 17:26,27, Rom. 10:11-13) What kind of pastor condones the sin of homosexuality, killing babies, and preaches a gospel of racial division? The pastor for 20 years and spiritual mentor of Democratic Presidential candidate B. Hussein Obama! I found it amusing the past few days that all of the news media is focusing on the racially divisive and anti-American rhetoric of Dr. Jeremiah Wright, who for over 3 decades was the Senior Pastor of the Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, Illinois. For those who...

    Chip Wall can't help but zero in on the little stuff whenever he watches Barack Obama on TV. It's his old pal Stanley. For Wall and a few dozen others, Obama on the campaign trail often brings to mind Stanley Ann Dunham, Obama's mother and a strong-willed, unconventional member of the Mercer Island High School graduating class of 1960. "She was not a standard-issue girl of her times... "She touted herself as an atheist, and it was something she'd read about and could argue," the only child was a ... daughter of a father who wanted a boy so badly...

    The dress, a purple shift, is almost ludicrously simple. The pearls around her neck are fakes, each one the size of a gobstopper, and deliberately so. It is clear that the woman gazing out from the cover of Newsweek magazine has a message for anyone caring to glance at the news stand. Yes, Michelle Obama is a glamorous lawyer with a big salary, a bigger house and a husband with one hand on the Presidency, but never forget that this is also the little black girl from Chicago who overcame the odds to change the face of American politics.

    Why are so many people saying that U.S. Sen. Barack Obama could become the first black president? If by that they mean that he would become the first African-American president -- meaning his father was from Kenya and his mother from Kansas -- it would make sense. But I don't think that's what people mean. Despite the deaths of legal segregation and Jim Crow, apparently most Americans still embrace the one-drop rule. F. James Davis, a retired professor of sociology at Illinois State University, defined the one-drop rule as the belief that any person with ''any known African black ancestry''...
  • Union Delegates Urge Obama To Run For President

    AFSCME Greet Senator With "Run, Obama, Run" Signs (CBS) CHICAGO -- Is Sen. Barack Obama edging closer to a run for president? Officially, the answer is "no." But on Monday, thousands of union delegates seemed to say "yes." CBS 2 Political Editor Mike Flannery reports Obamas speech filled the hall with wild cheers. While some waved signs urging him to run for president, virtually all 6,000 convention delegates of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees were cheering Barack Obama's message. Invoking memories of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s march with garbage workers in Memphis, Obama asked...
