    Today being the 50 year anniversary of Martin Luther King's famous 'I have a Dream Speech' prompted another Washington DC rally last Saturday and just today Obama giving a speech on it. MSNBC covered the Saturday rally most of that day and today re-playing that entire speech and all day recapping how it all came to be with guest after guest very romantically and nostalgically. "He changed America" So just a few minutes ago I flipped to that channel for a minute and caught Martin Luther chanting 'Let Freedom ring' in that speech and thought how ironic it is. This...
  • To you Stand Your Ground (Trayvol Martin) Florida boycotters: Do it the right way

    With the racist ruling by that all-white Zimmerman jury and Stand your Ground laws making Florida open season on our children, Moveon(.org) and Stevie Wonder are calling for you to boycott the state and not even go on vacation there. ‘We all are Trayvol Martin’ now and Florida will be sorry when we refuse to visit the state to spend our $$$. But that is not enough. All of you who live in Florida and joined the Martin injustice protests are still contributing to the racism by living there and supporting $$$ the economy by buying your hoodies and skittles...
  • Should President Obama have a Black Agenda for America?

    Ann Arbor Examiner ^ | March 8, 2010 | Kevin Fobbs
    Does PBS host Tavis Smiley have it right in stressing that President Obama should launch a Black Agenda for America? Or is Rev. Al Sharpton, a civil rights activist and one not known for backing away from controversy, correct in proclaiming that Smiley has it all wrong? Smiley seems more than a little perturbed that some black leaders feel that with the election of the nations first black president coupled with the civil rights anthem of the 1960s We Shall Overcome Someday means Black America has largely overcome. America particularly African Americans has to focus not on race...

    America is notorious for its culture of gun violence. Guns sometimes do cause terrible harm, and many kids are killed every year in gun accidents. But public service announcements and news stories make it seem as if the accidents kill thousands of kids every year. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, however, fewer than 100 kids 15 and under are killed in gun accidents every year. Of course that's horrible, and I understand why demonstrators say we need more gun control. But guess what? The Centers for Disease Control recently completed a review of studies of various...

    Al Sharpton, once labeled a racial polarizer, has recast himself as the soul of the Democratic Party. One rainy fall day, Sharpton paid a visit to Rolling Stone's offices to explain to us why he's running for president and how he fears the Democrats are about to blow it again. A decade ago, Sharpton was one of the most hated men in New York, accused by his critics of stoking racial fury and inciting near-riots. But since then, he has mellowed considerably, trading his track-suit-and-big-medallion look for tailored suits and flashy cuff links. In mainstreaming his appeal, Sharpton is reaching...

    Sharpton Blasts Favorite Son Plan Says Democrats Are Afraid of Him BY BENJAMIN SMITH - The Rev. Al Sharpton, moving ever closer to a run for president, yesterday blasted a leading Democrats plan to steer black voters away from him in 2004. Al Gores former campaign manager, Donna Brazile, says she may push popular black officials to run for president in their home states as favorite sons. That strategy, she says, would increase black voters impact, while pulling the rug out from under Mr. Sharpton in key southern states. Ms. Braziles plan and Mr. Sharptons response mark the...

    Toogood Reports [Wednesday, October 30, 2002; 12:01 a.m. EST]URL: http://ToogoodReports.com/ Well, I guess I had it all wrong. It seems that race was a non-factor in the Beltway Sniper case. I know that, because New York Daily News columnist Pete Hamill told me so. In a race-obsessed column, Hamill informed the reader again and again, that this was not about race. "During the three frenzied weeks after the first sniper killing, almost none of the media profilers and experts suggested that the sniper might be black. The American imagination was filled by images of crazy white people, snarling and enraged,...

    NEW YORK -- It's Rev. Al Sharpton vs. the Empire State Building. The preacher and the management at the 102-storey midtown Manhattan landmark are feuding over the 48th-floor offices of Sharpton's National Action Network, where a city eviction notice was hung on the door. Sharpton was booted from the building for non-payment of rent over the last six months, said building spokesman Howard Rubenstein. The activist's organization signed a 10-year lease three years ago, he said. However, Sharpton maintains that he wasn't evicted. He said he moved out because the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks made it difficult to do business...
