President Barack Obama

Raynard Jackson

January 22, 2009



Now that we had inauguration day

I have something I want to say

Let’s take a look back at history

And try to unravel a wonderful mystery



Now that Obama is President

I know he will represent

The great red, white and Blue

That includes me and that includes you



They said it could not be done

Why in the hell would he run

Is this boy crazy… Continue

Re-examining Nigeria’s Relationship with Other Africans

A letter titled “Nigerians and Botswana” published in The Guardian of Sunday 18th January 2009, and sent in by Ifeoma Ogbodo from Lagos caught my eye. The letter basically drew our attention to the treatment being meted out to Nigerians by the Government of the Southern African country of Botswana. The letter recounted that the Government of Botswana in January 2008 banned the employment of Nigerian health and other professionals in their public sector including doctors, pharmacists, lecturers… Continue

My LITERARY LIFE

I never set out to be the first black writer of fantasy and sword-and-sorcery fiction. The position had remained open for quite a while, and when I began to write for the purpose of publication (as opposed to school assignments and personal scribbling), it was still there, and mine for the taking.



The road that led me there featured plenty of twists and turns, but the direction in which it led was always plain. I started reading science fiction in the late 1950s, when I was what is… Continue

Reparations / Celebrations and Struggle

As African-Americans prepare celebrations for Dr. King’s Birthday and Black History Month, we are taken away from the ideals of what both occasions called for. Dr. King’s life did not revolve around celebrations. Dr. King’s life was mirrored by the Civil Rights Movement. He was beaten by the police on several occasions as he led boycotts, freedom rides, marches, protests and sit-ins against discrimination and injustice. Blacks should realize statistics show they are far from equality, so there… Continue

Inauguration Day, Tuesday January 20, 2009, will be one of the proudest days my life. It is also one of the most important transitions in the history of this country.

Barack Obama & Black America

In the sixties we had the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and we had a president named John F. Kennedy. At that time we as a people (African American and Caribbean) people knew what it meant to be a proud people. We stood together and fought for equality. We broke down racial barriers in peaceful demonstrations even though we were hosed, beaten, arrested and set upon by dogs.

In recent years however, we have become doggish towards each other. We no longer think that fighting to make a better… Continue

Will We See Change We Can believe In?



“Since the 1960's black’s consistent level of voter participation indicates that they steadfastly believe that their voting power can significantly change their life conditions. This will not happen, though much effort and expense go into black voter registration and get out the vote projects. Blacks have successfully put black and white candidates into high government offices… Continue

An Open Letter to Martin Luther King

by Philip Emeagwali

emeagwali.com



Walk with me down memory lane. The time: 1968. In 30 months, one million dead. The setting: a dusty camp in Biafra where survivors waited and hoped for peace. The survivors: Refugees fleeing from the “Dance of Death.” My mentor: One of the refugee camp directors, whom I called “Teacher” out of respect.



“Martin Luther King has been killed,” Teacher said, with a pained voice and vacant eyes. I looked… Continue

Senate Republicans, Eric Holder, and the Black Community

Raynard Jackson

January 15, 2009



Once again Republicans are showing how tone deaf this party really is. This time, the stupidity is emanating from the United States senate. President-elect Obama has nominated Eric Holder to be the next United States Attorney General. He will be the first Black Attorney General in our country’s history. Holder has served as a former Superior Court judge of the District of Columbia (appointed by,… Continue

Within the Internet lies Africa’s clay of wisdom



by Philip Emeagwali

emeagwali.com



According to history books, gun-wielding European slave traders kidnapped one in five Africans and transported them across the oceans to the Americas. A less visible, but no means less drastic technological tool of suppression, is the compass, a device used worldwide for navigation. In the same way that Britain used its maritime knowledge and the US harnessed… Continue

Council superior de l' Audiovisuel (CSA) a front for cultural genocide of the Black populations in France

by Mbegane NDOUR

France



We speak definitely about cultural genocide of the black populations in France. How not to speak about genocide when the only forms of cultural expression broadcast are skinned of cultural values and identity? How steps to speak strong genocide facing a sous separated, to think that we do not know that to run quickly, to type one in balls, to dance and to move with the frenetic rhythms of drums or hip-hop beat? how marginalized and stigmatized populations… Continue
