I've been rolling this concept around in my mind, and I've come to the conclusion that it's better to be a pro-actionary than a re-actionary.

Memo To Romney

June 29, 2012

                       

Raynard Jackson

 

Now that Romney is the defacto nominee for the Republican Party, I have been reflecting on the state of the presidential race as it enters the final stretch.  As a political strategist, I understand the necessity to run to the right during the Republican primary and then migrate to the center during the general election.

 

It is common knowledge that Romney has no intention of focusing on the Black vote during the general election.  From a raw po

Hello All:

I am forwarding a copy of a petition sent to me and other signatories, urging (insisting) that the Supreme Court reverse their so called "Citizens United" law, which makes it possible for corporations to contribute to political campaigns as though they were individual human beings, instead of entities in perpetuity.

Below is my cover letter, the link to the petition, and an article from the online publication, Reader Supported News.  Read it, sign the petition, pass it on to all your co

Mayor Ernie Davis' swearing in as Mount Vernon's 21st mayor, and, as the first New York mayor to go back and successfully win his old seat (at least in Mt.

By Gloria Dulan-Wilson: Hello All: I recently had occasion to respond to an individual who is a "self-styled activist" who had invited me to participate in a protest demonstration against President Barack Obama, which would have taken place in Harlem in front of the Apollo while the President participated in a fund raising concert held in his honor.

The email which I received on January 17,2012 was so hostile that I immediately shot back an email to the author, Nellie Hester Bailey, informing he

“Iraq was always a war of choice. As I never bought the argument that Saddam had nukes that had to be taken out, the decision to go to war stemmed, for me, from a different choice: Could we collaborate with the people of Iraq to change the political trajectory of this pivotal state in the heart of the Arab world and help tilt it and the region onto a democratizing track? After 9/11, the idea of helping to change the context of Arab politics and address the root causes of Ar

Democratic Blackness vs. Republican Blackness

By EZRAH AHARONE ~

Ever since Republican Herman Cain, a self-described "Black conservative," remarked that two-thirds of Black Democrats are "brainwashed," the question of his "Blackness" has been contrasted with that of President Obama. Beyond the resentment from brainwashing claims, this issue should prompt discourse and partisan introspection to determine if Blackness "politically exists" in either party.

First, what is Blackness and how is it measured? Originally, before its 1960s incarn

President Obama's Mission Impossible

By H. Lewis Smith ~

Upon Barack Obama's election to President of the United States, euphoria, jubilation and an aura of disbelief simultaneously enveloped the Black African-American community. Perhaps, it could even be said that many saw him as a Messiah and the primary power-holder to make life and living better for Blacks. Seemingly, Black African Americans became complacent and blinded by the historical, unprecedented election of America's first-recognized Black President, thinking him the

How long will the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) continue to behave like a person who has been diagnosed with erectile dysfunction (ED) and has been prescribed Viagra by his doctor?

 

The male psyche is extremely fragile and when the doctor prescribes Viagra to him, initially it is a huge blow to his ego.  Then, there is an initial state of denial, followed by acceptance.

 

So it is with the CBC and their relationship with President Obama.  Obama has all but ignored

Obama has got to go

The ruler of the world has spoken. “Kaddafi has got to go.”  So US and other North Atlantic Terrorist Organisation (NATO) bombs rain down on Libya killing men, women and children in alarming numbers. So the US and NATO, primarily Great Britain, France and Italy, despite their collapsing economy, spare no expense to try to kill Kaddafi. “If we can’t kill Kaddafi, let’s kill his daughter, his son, his grandchildren, his fellow Libyans.”  Despite the demonizations, bombings and the merciless killi

Open Letter To Tom Joyner

July 7, 2011Raynard JacksonI have known Tom Joyner (nationally syndicated radio host) for many years. We are not hanging out buddies, but we have always enjoyed talking and joking with each other. He is an “old school” soul who has done a lot of good in his life. But, in recent years, his very public fight with Tavis Smiley (journalist) and now Cornell West (college professor), threatens his standing in many communities (not just the Black). So, I decided to use this week’s column as an open let

What Would Malcolm Say About Obama

From The Ramparts                        
by Junious Ricardo Stanton ~                                          

    “The real religion of Islam doesn’t teach anyone to judge another human being by the color of his skin. The yardstick that is used by the Muslim to measure another man is not the man’s color but by his deeds, his conscious behavior, the man’s intention and when you use that as the standard of measurement you never go wrong. But when you just judge a man because of the color of his

SEAL of Approval

Raynard Jackson

 

Of course all the talk this week has been of the killing of Osama bin Laden in Pakistan by the elite Navy SEAL Team 6.  I was hoping, at least in the U.S., that this event would allow America to come together, if only for a moment, and reflect on what makes America such a wonderful place.  But, I guess I was a bit too optimistic!

 

The word SEAL is an abbreviation for SEa, Air and Land.  They are part of the Naval Special Warfare Command (NSWC).  They were formerly refe

TRUMPED

April 28, 2011

 

Raynard Jackson

When Donald Trump began to make public overtures about his possible interest in running for president of the U.S., I thought he could be a substantive wild card in the race. 

 

I thought Trump could be a viable candidate because he does have a successful track record as a businessman.  During next year’s presidential campaign, the economy will be the number one issue—this would have played right into Trump’s strength.

 

But, Trump has allowed himself to be hijacked by h
