White Irony

Thursday, September 4th, 2008

Only 36 of the 2,380 delegates seated on the (Republican) convention floor are black, the lowest number since the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies began tracking diversity at political conventions 40 years ago. -- Wapo .01512605042%!!!  Republicans call McCain/Palin the ticket of change. Interesting direction.

From His Mouth to God’s Ear

Monday, August 18th, 2008

Yesterday I was at Mass, and the Homily was about racism. Father Robert talked about how when Kennedy was running for president, the prevailing meme was that he'd doom the nation to Papacy, and once elected would follow the Pope's edict and make America a Catholic nation. Sounds ludicrous now, ...

Pot vs. Kettle: OMG!! They’re Black!

Friday, August 8th, 2008

This ranks right up there with ‘teh stupid'. When a weary and jet-lagged Barack Obama took the stage on the last day of the UNITY Journalists of Color convention in Chicago last month, most of the attendees had already left. But there was still a healthy crowd of over 2,500 there ...

“Race” For The White House: Who’s Driving The Straight Talk Express?

Friday, August 1st, 2008

I suspect that John McCain is no longer the driver of the straight-talk express. I say as much in light of two developments. One, in the last few weeks, the McCain campaign has been retooled with a number of former Bush campaign operatives...operatives who cut their teeth under the tutelage ...

Is This Race All About The Race?

Sunday, July 27th, 2008

There is a perception that Barack Obama exudes a degree of hubris that may be viewed negatively by a number of voters. The unasked question is whether this impression has its origin in the fact that Barack Obama is actually an over confident candidate or simply a candidate who exceeds ...

Serving Masters, Serving Notice, & Serving Ourselves

Wednesday, July 9th, 2008

Have you ever wondered what a modern day slave would look like and how he or she might behave? Ever consider who might be the owners of plantations, staffed by these slaves, if they were "permitted" to exist today? Has it ever crossed your mind that the only thing that's ...

Signorile To Hillary Supporters: Don’t Be Stupid

Thursday, June 5th, 2008

I'm baffled. I want to know what Barack Obama did to so many of the Hillary supporters such that they would choose to vote for John McCain in November rather than vote for the candidate that obviously has their best interest in mind. In the following video, Michelangelo Signorile confronts ...

About Those Lazy Blacks…

Wednesday, May 14th, 2008

Tell me again why we need a black President in these United States of America... "I have a much broader base to build a winning coalition on," she said. As evidence, Clinton cited an Associated Press article that she said "found how Sen. Obama's support among working, hard-working Americans, white Americans, ...

Racism, Avoidance, and Hanging that Darky from a Tree

Tuesday, May 13th, 2008

I read this entire article through, and really, while not what you hope to see, hardly surprising. That's something Progressives would do well to factor. It's not a Southern thing, it's an American thing, and anybody who has had the good fortune to live in more than one area of ...

Shades of America

Friday, April 25th, 2008

 A couple of observations about race are rumbling through my brain today. First, one thing the credible Obama candidacy has done is free African Americans from a lot of political baggage. Obama's "yes we can" is as much about discarding a defeatist mindset in blacks as in the country as a ...
