The Obama Presidency: Will Progressives Offer a Vision For a More Perfect Union?

Dr. Ron Daniels:

As it became increasingly clear that Barack Obama was poised to make history as the first African American President of the United States, it was also clear that this was potentially a big moment for the progressive movement – a time to articulate a vision for a new America and to organize to advance an agenda for reform and fundamental change. As the Obama presidency unfolds, the question is whether the progressive movement is prepared to seize the… Continue

New Sudanese terrorist alliance threatens a repeat of September 11

Abdullahi Osman El-Tom:

March 16, 2009 — It would be a mistake not to take the recent formation of an alliance of a “jihadist” group with due seriousness. By any measure, this alliance bears the hallmarks of a terrorist organisation with the potential for grave consequences, both nationally and internationally. Given Sudan’s strict control over its printed media, the lack of prompt and categorical dismissal of the news is a firm… Continue

N’COBRA: Open Letter to First Lady Michelle Obama

Dear Mrs. Obama:

It is with highest homage and admiration to you that I write this letter. I am the Northeast Regional Representative, and Board Member, for the National Coalition of Blacks for Reparations in America. The Reparations Movement, of which N’COBRA is a member, implores you to start a national dialogue on a reparations accord for Blacks in America.

Obama Drama

March 26, 2009

Raynard Jackson

Last year, President Barack Obama ran the closest thing to a perfect campaign ever seen in this country. There was no senior level turnover during the campaign. There was no public feuding from various factions within his campaign (unlike Hillary Clinton’s). Even the transition was extraordinarily smooth.

So, I am dumbfounded by all the drama surrounding the early days of his presidency. Seems like Obama went from a serious drama… Continue

Creative leadership the best way to overcome hypocrisy and treachery!

Freeman F Chari:

Before the current Government of National Unity, proponents of the theory of exclusive governance were of the belief that an MDC government in Zimbabwe would signal the end of Zimbabwe’s economic quagmire. This was premised on the assumption that once MDC gets into power, western governments particularly USA would pour economic aid into the government’s coffers. Today, we are wallowing in the realisation of the painful truth about the basic rules of engagement… Continue

Gom Jabbar, twenty divided by seven, Left Oblique

It was the moment I realized Ron number one, (Ron number one because there are so many of them, like Michaels and guys that chose the name Maliq that they must be numbered or described, because I don't like them well enough to remember them by last name or I dislike them enough to not credit them with full names) Ron number one, like me, like many writers was or is a lamprey of ideas. Latching onto to sharks of language until almost all recognizable elements of self disappears. I was sitting in… Continue

The Implications of Gender Critique In the film, The Matrix (transcript of a lecture delivered at Florida International University in March, 2001)

1. What is Feminism?

Good afternoon. We will begin by defining feminism.

Feminism is humanism. That is, feminism as a political and a social movement is a humanist movement. It is one of the more crucial strands within a collective history of liberation struggle here in America. Along with Unionism, the Amerindian and First Nation struggles, the Black liberation struggle, the anti-war… Continue

That the fire this time was in your hands

Dr. Rodney Coates:

When was the last time that you cried for the abused?

Was it then, that you saw that their plight was your concern?

Or did their plight become your problem to discern

Manipulate, transform, or perform some statistical,

Analytical, non-practical deliberations upon -

When was the last time that you decried the crimes?

Insanity, then masking as repetitious diatribes against

The sanity… Continue

UNDERSTANDING THE SUDAN - Understanding Museveni, An Unusual African

Dear Kwasi


Trusting this finds you in good spirits.

Few Africans, outside of east Africa have much understanding of the Sudan

issues. I met last week the Special Advisor to the Namibia Foreign

Minister/President, to discuss Sudan. I noted that his was the standard

OAU/AU view, which is determined by the geo-political considerations

of east Africa. He knew little, nor cared much in my view, about the situation

of Darfurians,…
