obama (137)

image001.jpgBy Raynard Jackson | In June of 2013 Obama tried to lecture Senegalese President, Macky Sall in front of his own people on accepting homosexuality in his country.  Before his trip to Africa, Obama was sternly warned by many, “do not talk about homosexuality in Africa.”

But as is his habit, Obama never misses an opportunity to lecture and talk down to Blacks in the U.S. and Africans abroad.  To his credit, President Sall quickly chastised Obama with these words, “We are still not ready to decrimin

PROJ21.gifWashington, DC - Commenting on President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address tonight, members of the Project 21 black leadership network saw a presidency lacking new ideas that suggested Obama may be “running out the clock” on his presidency without much vision but with plenty of continued class warfare and big government rhetoric.
“President Obama really did not offer anything new in his address to Congress. All he did was present the American people with the same old clunker policies spra

OPEN LETTER TO LAURA WASHINGTON REGARDING A BLACK AGENDA

Dear Ms. Washington:

This is in response to your article written in September 29, 2014 edition of the Sun-Times. My name is Jimmy Lee Tillman, II and I am an independent republican candidate for the US House of Representatives 1st Congressional District with a strong African-American agenda. I have not received much media attention from the mainstream or Black press. 
I have counted on the many voices in the grass root community to talk about

1) Barack Obama stepped to the mic and spoke of the importance of non-violence … for oppressed people. When any representative of the U.S. ruling class preaches non-violence, they mean non-violence for those who might get in the way of their empire. Obama was referring to people who had suffered under Jim Crow segregation and lynch-mob terror. This from the commander-in-chief of the global Amerikkkan empire, who has presided over more than 280 drone missile strikes, maintains a torture chamber p

 Why Black African Americas Should Care About Fracking?

by

C. Earl Campbell DA 3rd, MSW

The answer is clear. We too value clean air and water. Black African Americans have all too often been the victims of environmental racism caused by Corporate greed. Hydraulic fracturing is a process used in nine out of 10 natural gas wells in the United States, where millions of gallons of water, sand and toxic chemicals (poisons) are pumped underground to break apart Shale Rock in order to release the gas trap

President Obama: Please Call Home

Last week, I criticized President Obama for his anemic, voiceless, almost whispered response to the tragic death of Hadiya Pendleton.  She was a 15-year-old honor student who was shot and killed in Chicago two weeks ago after having performed at Obama’s inauguration.

To my total amazement, there was a torrent of criticism from within the Black community about Obama’s tepid public statement about Hadiya’s death.  I was proud that many in the Black community finally

Well, the Eagles have won the election, but the turkeys and buzzards are already circling to try to thwart the progress that has been made.  According to the communique below from the CEO of the International Association for Women of Color Day, Susan Brooks, 97 racist Rep-ugh-blicans have written a letter to President Obama claiming that UN Ambassador Susan Rice is unfit to assume the role of Secretary of State when Hillary Clinton vacates the post.

Every year some one of our politically savvy Black activist leaders will come up with question of whether or not we should be celebrating Thanksgiving.  And this year is no different.  That weird question  reared its ugly head in the guise of a joke, and there was the nervous laughter to open guffaws around the room, which set me thinking:

"Hmmmm...don't we - individually and collectively - have something to be thankful for in our lives?  Are we now so cynical that ev

Just received this piece from one of my Lincoln U Classmates, and thought it would be an interesting read and share piece.  It was originally written by Mr. Andrew M. Manis in 2008; but has been re-circulated by the author as a wake up call to his fellow Caucasians.
Read, share, respond.

Hello All:

Recently registered Rep-ugh-blican, Raynard Jackson posted a critical article stating that the Republican Party had abandoned him. And he took umbrage to some of their racist tactics. But, as you will read, he copped out in the end, and his conclusion left a lot to be desired.  So I wrote the following response to his statement.   You can read his complaint, and see if you agree with my response.  His article follows my response:

Hey You Guys!!!!!
You know, my good friend Jack D. sent these to me, and I tried to send them out to everybody via regular email; but apparently they didn't come through as I had intended.

So I guess this is truly a bloggable moment that could not be denied.


Most of the middle class, as well as those who are economically challenged, have grown up on Sesame Street.  We know and love Bert & Ernie; Big Bird and Grover, Oscar the Grouch, The C

NAACP Victorious in Overturning Voter ID in Texas

by Gloria Dulan-Wilson

Kudos to the NAACP for having won a major victory in Texas in the ongoing fight against the rep-ugh-blicans efforts to drag us backwards into the 19th century: the federal court struck down the Texas Voter ID law, stating it unfairly discriminated against “communities of color and was, therefore, in vioilation of Section 5 of the 1965 Voting Rights Act.”

Hopefully this will send a clear signal to other states that are trying t

With all the lies being swirled about by the meanstream press, Mitt-twits, Ryan, Akin, and others in an effort to undermine President Obama, I would be totally remiss if I let this day end without sending this wonderful message to the President via Joel and Victoria Osteen.

Everybody needs a boost every once and a while, and that is as true of President Obama as any of the rest of us. And since I know that Blacks in America are praying for him every day, I thought I'

It's 3:00 AM, and I'm going through my emails – something, being a night owl, I do routinely, in preparation for writing, or researching for my blog or a news article – when I see Bill Cosby's name in the subject line of an email. So, of course I zoom in on it because, anything about Cosby I'm going to read. He's one of my heroes.

What I read made me sad, then disappointed, and finally angry. It was an online response to an article that has been circulating the intern

Paul Ryan(Originally published at AfroDaddy.com)

After months of speculation, Mitt Romney has finally settled on his Vice President choice, Paul Ryan.  Of course many Republican conservatives are elated with this choice, as Ryan represents everything they like: smaller government, tax breaks for the rich, eliminating social programs, and a "dog-eat-dog" capitalism that leaves many poor, hungry and disenfranchised.

Democrats are equally pleased with the pick as Paul Ryan represents an easy target to rail ag
