In a sign that the GOP is really going off the rails Rick Santorum called President Obama a snob for wanting all Americans to go to college. What’s even more surprising is that republicans who are always talking about pulling one’s self up by their boot straps cheered for this. Isn’t going to college one way of pulling yourself up? Now suddenly going to college is a bad thing? Read more and watch the video here: Rick Santorum calls Obama a snob for wanting all Americans to go to college

Did CNN exploit Whitney Houston ” homegoing” coverage?

Did CNN exploit Whitney Houston ” homegoing” coverage?

Like many I watched CNN’s coverage of Whitney Houston’s “Homegoing” coverage. I was happy that they aired the event because not only was it a great sendoff for Whitney Houston but it gave the entire world a positive view of what goes on in the black church. At the same time some of my friends had the uneasy feeling that CNN was exploiting Whitney’s death for their own benefit. I think it’s a very close call here between exploitation and covering an event. I don’t think it was exploration at all. What do you think?

White Nationalist to Speak from Podium at CPAC 2012

I would like to say thank you to Devin Burghart of Irehr.org for sending this to me. I wonder why this is not and will it become a story in the main stream media. The cynic in me believes that those at CPAC know Bob Vandervoort’s past and chose to ignore it thinking no one else would find out about it. The fair minded individual in me wants to give them the benefit of the doubt on this and says that they didn’t know. Let’s hope it’s the latter.

Comedian in blackface ask BYU students about Black History Month.

Here’s a very disturbing video be comedian Dave Ackerman who dons blackface to ask BYU students about Black History Month. While many are and should be upset about Ackerman in black face we should all be more upset by the responses of the students to his questions about Black History Month. When asked about some historical Africa Americans names like Will Smith and Samuel Jackson were dropped. I can’t make this ish up. Watch the video here: http://aareports.com/2012/02/comedian-in-blackface-ask-byu-students.html

Allen West doesn’t want to give Obama credit, challenges black unemployment numbers

So this is what it has come to?

Instead of simply congratulating President Obama and his administration for the drop in unemployment overall and the dramatic drop in black unemployment from 15.8% to 13.6% Congressman Allen west has chosen to play politics and question the numbers. He goes so far as to suggest that someone may have tampered with the numbers although he has no proof to back up such a statement.
