Apparently, theres a manual on how to act black floating around among black Americans and Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is guilty of not reading it. In the spirit of full disclosure, neither have I. This hate is leveled by blacks towards other blacks, who speak standard, not broken, English and are or either aspire to be educated and successful.
Where is President Barack Obama when you need him in a crisis? Pretty absent from the stage, unless he's pointing fingers (at Republicans), disavowing knowledge of "situations" such as Obamacare's website woes, the IRS scandal, and the horror show at Veterans Affairs -- or simply refusing to take responsibility by retreating from the world.
People love the perception of Hillary Clinton because her record is as thin as the bench of Republicans who have hinted at taking a run for president in 2016.
I dont know whats worse, Ravens football player Ray Rice knocking his then fiance, now wife, unconscious in an elevator, the NFL protecting him, or women defending Rice for punching an unarmed woman. All of the above are equally repugnant. But a woman, saying Rices wife Janay Palmer deserved it, is disturbing.
?If I didn’t know any better, I could have sworn President Barack Obama channeled his predecessor President George W. Bush in his statement authorizing air strikes on Iraq. After blaming Bush for his fledging presidency all these years, I guess Obama has Bush on the brain.
Just when I thought the District of Columbia government couldn’t stoop to new lows of incompetence and non-sensical behavior, it does. Apparently, self-defense spray is defined as a firearm in DC and must be registered by its owner with the Metropolitan Police Department.
?There’s nothing in the United States Constitution stating Americans have the right not to pay their bills. In fact, the Declaration of Independence, which gave birth to our nation, notes the only unalienable rights we have are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Yet thousands of Detroit residents think they have the right not to pay their water bills and demand their water remain on.
For all the flirtation Hillary Clinton has done with the news media over whether she intends to run for president in 2016, you’d think she would have performed better on her book tour/campaign dress rehearsal.
?As the news media cranked up the heat on the White House’s disastrous handling of the Veterans Affairs scandal, President Barack Obama decided it was time to change the subject and make the news about him again. So what does he do? Obama finalizes the release of five top Taliban commanders from Guantanamo in exchange for the Taliban’s release of one American soldier.
CNN described President Barack Obama's announcement of Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki's resignation "dramatic." I would call it a dramatic disgrace to our Veterans and another example of the president not holding his Cabinet Secretaries and other high level people in his administration accountable. The IRS’s Lois Lerner, director of the Exempt Organizations Division, and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sibelius were allowed to resign amid scandals when they got good and ready.
Listening to Attorney General Eric Holder and President Barack Obama address Al Sharpton’s National Action Network 16th annual convention last week, one would think Americans were living in the year 1964 not 2014.
Gays are trying to portray traditional marriage as an alternative lifestyle and those who support it as evil. It’s beyond despicable that Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich, purveyor of Firefox, resigned from his newly appointed post last Thursday because the gay mob found out he had the nerve to . . .wait for it. . . exercise his first amendment right and support traditional marriage.
?Republicans just can’t help reminding blacks why they should not consider voting for them, at least not seriously. In a Fox News interview, former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld compared President Barack Obama to a “trained ape” for his failure to sign an agreement with Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai on the number of US troops allowed to remain in Afghanistan after 2014 to help with security.
White House executive pastry chef Bill Yosses is throwing in the cookies and cream for a more healthful job in New York thanks to First Lady Michelle Obama’s green tooth. Apparently, Michelle’s obsession with the White House garden rubbed off on him.
Talking about race neither makes a black person a victim nor a white person a racist. It’s called a discussion and something conservatives need to do more of.
President Barack Obama enjoys the celebrity and uniqueness of being America’s first black president but loathes the accountability that comes with the job. Since day one Obama, has cried racism as the cause for his inability to work with Republicans in Congress or basically get anything meaningful done in five years of his presidency.
Well, well, well. When Republicans tried to delay the Obamacare individual mandate during the government shutdown, Democrats and President Barack Obama called them “meanies” and obstructionists.
The federal government shut down and right now House Republicans look really stupid but so do the President and Senate Democrats. None of the three want to do the jobs they were elected to do: serve at the behest of “we the people.”
Where in the world is America, as Syria descends into utter carnage? This is the question nations are asking of us. Like it or not, America is the world’s conscience, defender of humanity, democracy and warrior against evil.
It’s ironic America’s first black president, who has done nothing but further polarize race relations in this country, would use the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington to reflect on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s legacy.
