Message to the White House: Mr. President We Need You to Consider…

The outbreak of racial violence in recent years, culminating – to this point – in the massacre of nine people while studying the Word of the Lord at Emmanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC makes it clear that Black people in America haven’t gotten anything lasting from having a Black man in the White House. I’d imagine he’s feeling that now as well…as he’s winding down his tenure in the White House. And if it’s […]

Rethinking the Mandate for President Obama after the Status Quo Election

A polarizing election leaves us polarized in its wake.  On the Left, the stance is that Barack Obama’s victory serves as a mandate.  On the Right, the stance is that the President’s victory is no mandate.  Both sides have arguments to prove their point.

Negroes, We are Free to Use Our Natural Minds in Electoral 2012

I continue to receive emails from fellow Black Republicans trying to sell me – and others – on support for Mitt Romney.  The most recent was from the Chair of a Black Republican organization entitled, “Prominent Black Mormons.”  The email (and post) is styled as an attempt to dismiss charges of racism against Mormons.  The defense used by the author is that there are Black Mormons.  Hence the title: “Prominent Black Mormons.”  My response is…SO WHAT? So, […]
