    On Thursday’s Countdown show on MSNBC, New York Times columnist Frank Rich charged that it looks "morally bad" and "idiotic" that Republicans have not elected a black candidate to federal office in six years. The Republican party also seemed to remind Rich of South Africa’s racist Apartheid policy of the past: "The fact is, this isn`t South Africa 25 years ago, this is a major political party that is essentially all white. And the hierarchy of it is definitely white. There hasn`t been a new black Republican elected to federal office, I think, in six years. And so, what does...

    MSNBC - First Read Page ^ | 10/29/08 | NBC's Dan Teague
    From NBC's Don Teague I’ve heard some things over the past few weeks that raise alarm bells in my head. Among the most concerning, coming from members of the media and pundits, is that racism is the only way Barack Obama can lose the presidential election. As a person who’s worked in “red states” for much of my career, I feel compelled to offer an alternative view. Specifically, I want to give you the perspective of my neighbor, Dan. Yes, you can call him “Dan the neighbor.” “Dan the neighbor” is not a racist. (snip) He’s also a conservative. He...

    "Using terms that would send Republicans into the history books, Jimmy Carter on PBS calls Barack this Black Boy" I couldn't believe it until I heard it for myself.

    Geraldine Ferraro was forced out of Hillary's campaign for commenting that Barack Obama was successful only because he is black. Cf. http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/us_and_americas/us_elections/article3541772.ece Joe Biden said the following about Clarence Thomas: "I think that the only reason Clarence Thomas is on the Court is because he is black."

    A special meeting about Dallas County traffic tickets turned tense and bizarre this afternoon. County commissioners were discussing problems with the central collections office that is used to process traffic ticket payments and handle other paperwork normally done by the JP Courts. Commissioner Kenneth Mayfield, who is white, said it seemed that central collections "has become a black hole" because paperwork reportedly has become lost in the office. Commissioner John Wiley Price, who is black, interrupted him with a loud "Excuse me!" He then corrected his colleague, saying the office has become a "white hole." That prompted Judge Thomas Jones,...

    TRENTON, N.J. - A local Republican Club in New Jersey has removed a slogan from its Web site that read, "Obama loves America like O.J. loved Nicole." The Pemberton Republican Club removed the slogan after Democrats alleged racist campaign tactics. The club's Web master, Ed Kuck, tells The Philadelphia Inquirer that he saw the slogan on an Internet site and copied it onto the club's Web page as a joke. The chairman of the Burlington County Democratic Committee says comparing Obama to O.J. Simpson was reprehensible.
  • Long Lost Sisters (humanity was genetically divided for as much as 100,000 years)

    TAU mathematician finds humanity was genetically divided for as much as 100,000 yearshe human race was divided into two separate groups within Africa for as much as half of its existence, says a Tel Aviv University mathematician. Climate change, reduction in populations and harsh conditions may have caused and maintained the separation. Dr. Saharon Rosset, from the School of Mathematical Sciences at Tel Aviv University, worked with team leader Doron Behar from the Rambam Medical Center to analyze African DNA. Their goal was to study obscure population patterns from hundreds of thousands of years ago. Rosset, who crunched numbers and...

    Dr. F. Javier Cevallos, president of Kutztown University, a publicly funded college located in Pennsylvania, is facing new pressure to step down from his post amid criticism from the university’s faculty union. The union’s leadership — which is comprised of a 10-member executive board — is planning to call for a vote of no-confidence in Cevallos later this week, claiming that he has mismanaged the day-to-day operations of the university, leading to an increase in class size, cramped office space and poor building conditions across campus. In addition, they charge that the morale among faculty is at an all-time low....

    With Virginia considered Hillary Clinton’s best chance in the Potomac Primary, Bill Clinton packed his schedule with three stops Monday in the Old Dominion, where he tried to convince voters that his wife’s experience trumps Barack Obama’s “smoke and mirrors” candidacy. Clinton’s first stop of the day was at the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, where he barely referred to Obama by name but alluded to him often as the lesser choice for the Democratic nomination, a candidate who has style but lacks Hillary Clinton’s substance. “You have to decide what this election is about,” Clinton told a room...

    Tempers flared and emotions erupted Tuesday at a meeting between U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen and a group of black ministers, stemming from the freshman congressman's support for a federal hate crimes bill. More than 100 ministers and guests showed up Tuesday for the weekly meeting of the Memphis Baptist Ministerial Association, where Cohen had been invited to speak. During a volatile question-and-answer forum that followed, many loudly commented that Cohen, who is white, can't adequately represent the primarily black Ninth District. "He's not black and he can't represent me, that's just the bottom line," said Rev. Robert Poindexter of Mt....

    When Eliseo Hernandez came to the United States 30 years ago, he thought he drove better after a few beers. Driving drunk had been normal back in Mexico, he said. But Hernandez, 54, learned of its perils firsthand. He quit the practice after falling asleep at the wheel and hitting a tree 18 years ago. Then, last year, a young Hispanic man who authorities say was drunk nearly killed Hernandez's only son, Diego, in a crash on a rural Johnston County road. Eliseo Hernandez's daughter, who was nine months pregnant, lost her unborn child in the accident. Hernandez has spent...

    West and Mike Myers had been paired up to appear about halfway through the show. Their assignment: Take turns reading a script describing the breach in the levees around New Orleans. Myers: The landscape of the city has changed dramatically, tragically and perhaps irreversibly. There is now over 25 feet of water where there was once city streets and thriving neighborhoods. (Myers throws to West, who looked extremely nervous in his super-preppy designer rugby shirt and white pants, which is not like the arrogant West and which, in retrospect, should have been a tip-off.) West: I hate the way they...
