    You probably know from his weepy reminiscences that the speaker of the House, John Boehner, once worked as a bartender and a janitor, and took seven years to get out of college. Maybe you’ve heard that Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin is a preacher’s son who churned out burgers and fries at McDonald’s. And you had to catch that bit from Senator Joni Ernst about putting bread bags over her shoes while growing up kind of poor in rural Iowa. People from humble beginnings often carry an extra load of empathy through the success of their later lives, a sense...

    Earlier this week the current President of The United States saw fit to invite the Reverand Al Sharpton to a sit-down in the Oval Office only hours after getting hammered in mid-term elections. The MSNBC commentator confirmed that he was working with the President on Eric Holder’s replacement and met with Lynch to discuss her thoughts on Eric Garner who died at the hands of a New York police officer who is now the subject of a police brutality investigation. The Reverend was quoted discussing his work with the President recently “We are engaged in immediate conversations with the White...

    Hillary Clinton claimed that, at the moment she and her husband were signing up for $18 million in book deals, that they were “dead broke.” Harry Reid (who lives in the Ritz-Carlton Hotel) said liberals are getting bullied by Republican billionaires but the Democratic Party “doesn’t have many billionaires” behind it. Joe Biden (family earnings: $407,000 last year plus a free house, driver, meals, etc.) claims he “I don’t own a single stock or bond. . . . I have no savings accounts . . . I’m the poorest man in Congress.” (Triple fail: Joe isn’t poor, isn’t in Congress...

The two-time presidential candidate and former North Carolina senator is scheduled to appear June 6 at a private retreat in Orlando, Fla., for lawyer clients of the marketing firm PMP. A records check with the N.C. State Bar shows Edwards has also reactivated his license to practice law, which had been inactive for more than a decade.....

    Last night, on the eve of the first and perhaps most important debate between President Barack Obama and Gov. Mitt Romney, the Daily Caller released the first “October surprise” of the 2012 election in the form of an unedited 2007 video of Obama speaking at Hampton University. Dubbed by the Drudge Report and the Daily Caller as “Obama’s Other Race Speech,” the video promised to show the President describing America, in the Daily Caller’s words, “as a racist, zero-sum society, in which the white majority profits by exploiting black America.” Indeed, the raw footage of Obama exposes odious racial hatred...

    In fairness to Vice President Biden, I supposed I should have a full post for our collective crazy uncle in the attic turned Vice President. The man from Delaware claimed that Republicans want to put people back in chains. Considering there is only one group of people ever put in chains in this country, it is clear he was race baiting. I have no doubt this was orchestrated by the Obama campaign, which immediately is again screaming that the old fool was taken out of context. It is remarkable that the party that thinks “states rights” is racist code thinks...

    KALAMAZOO– Blaming former President George W. Bush or “radio talk-show hosts” won’t deliver the votes this November to maintain Democrats’ control in Congress, says Chicago civil rights leader The Rev. Jesse Jackson. Instead, Jackson told an audience of about 100 people here Saturday that voters are looking for “job benefits, not jobless benefits". “No statewide (Democratic) ticket can survive with a 12 percent (African-American) voter turnout in Detroit,” said Jackson. “You’re going to have trouble when campuses can’t be inspired.” Jackson acknowledged the federal government has passed a series of stimulus bills aimed at aiding homeowners and lowering joblessness. But...

    Rainbow Coalition Also Wants Comcast/NBCU To Spend 25% Of Ad Budgets On Minority-Owned Firms The Rev. Jesse Jackson's Rainbow/PUSH Coalition wants Comcast to set aside 10% of its basic tier for networks "owned and controlled by people of color." The organization also wants both Comcast and NBC Universal to spend 25% of their ad and marketing budgets and the same percentage of "vendor dollars" on minority-owned firms. "We want to make sure that independently owned and controlled minority cable networks don't find it harder to gain carriage if this deal happens," said Jackson in written testimony for the July 8...

In South Los Angeles, the First African Methodist Episcopal Church held a special prayer service Sunday. The Rev.

Al Sharpton promised Wednesday to re-create it in Arizona if a new immigration law takes effect, filling the jails here with protesters engaged in civil disobedience. Sharpton, in a speech to an overflow crowd at the Pilgrim Rest Baptist Church, said the first effort will be to overturn the law, known as SB 1070, set to...

    In Barack Obama's first year as president, African-Americans have struggled to bridge a wide equality gap with whites, in particular in the area of jobs, a report said Wednesday. In the annual "State of Black America" report, the National Urban League (NUL) said black unemployment numbers were nearly double those of whites as "the ravages of the recession" hit minorities much harder than whites. "These are tough times in America and they require a powerful and immediate response," said Marc Morial, president and CEO of the 100-year-old civil rights group. The "already struggling" African-American community risks falling "deeper into poverty...

    Created in 1926 by black historian, scholar, educator and publisher Carter G. Woodson, it began as "Negro History Week." By 1976, it morphed into Black History Month -- a celebration of the contributions of blacks to America and their struggles to overcome. From Africa to slavery. The Civil War. Jim Crow and lynchings. Sit-ins and marches. Brown vs. Board of Education and the Civil Rights Act. Assassinations. A historic presidency. With history yet to have its full say regarding President Obama, we interviewed a broad spectrum of his fellow Chicagoans and prominent visitors on what the month means to them...

    SAN DIEGO – The Rev. Jesse Jackson, in San Diego Tuesday for a national gathering of African-American lawyers, called last week's White House “beer summit” between a black professor and the white police officer who arrested him a distraction from more complex issues of racial profiling. “This incident has gone on down the road as a media event, completely ignoring racial profiling in housing, jobs, health care, access to capital,” Jackson said. “We must keep our eyes on the bigger public policy question.” Jackson was on a panel of African-American leaders discussing the roles of black lawyers as social...

    It's difficult to recall the 2004 Democratic presidential primary, given the personalities and duration of the 2008 battle in the party. But who will ever forget the comic relief provided by the Rev. Al Sharpton during his 2004 bid for the White House? Now, five years later, the Federal Election Commission (FEC) has reached a settlement with the outspoken black preacher and his campaign totaling $285,000 in civil penalties. Also named in the settlement were campaign treasurer Andrew Rivera and, among other enterprises, the National Action Network, a nonprofit Mr. Sharpton founded and has served as president. The FEC-initiated case...

On the eve of the Million Man March, a rally organized by the Nation of Islam, the organization's youth minister was ready with rhetoric and venom. Angered by Jewish protests over a conference dedicated to "the black Holocaust," 24-year-old Quanell X told the gathering that offended Jews "can go straight to hell," then expounded on his sentiments to a Chicago Tribune reporter. "The real deal is this: Black youth do not want a relationship with the...

    SYLACAUGA, Ala. -- Sylacauga community leaders are preparing to boycott the city's school system. During a community meeting Sunday night, area pastors asked parents to pull their kids out of school this week. Organizers are protesting what they consider inequality in the teaching ranks. They said fewer than 10 percent of the city's teachers are black while black students make up 38 percent of the district's enrollment. The boycott is expected to start this morning with organizers hoping to keep more than 200 students out of the classroom for the rest of the week.
