P6 reviews The Beautiful Struggle…

Jun 30th, 2008 | By | Category: Social

I thought the book was a masterpiece … I stayed up all night last night reading it and fist-pumped the car air filter when I hit p. 177. I was too excited to sleep, and then I spent the morning alerting colleagues across the country, literally from southern CA to upstate NY. We are all […]

Notes on how to play yourself

Jun 29th, 2008 | By | Category: Politics

Bill Clinton continues to display his depthless self-pity and sense of entitlement. When Bill messed around with an intern and lied about it, it was all a vast right-wing conspiracy. Now African Americans take issue with Bill’s repeated, racially tinged comments and it’s Obama’s fault. Will this guy ever accept responsibility for anything he does […]

Please forgive me I Didn’t post for long. My current projects have taken all my sources. Below is a video on how I’m feeling right now.

I stopped reading Paul Krugman after…

Jun 27th, 2008 | By | Category: Politics

I’m steady trying to figure out what Krugman’s problem with Obama is. In any case, I did read the whole piece and I think Krugman is over-reaching a lot (and just plain wrong) when he says that pc-ness has driven “overt and strongly implied racism from out of our national discourse.” We’re still not anywhere […]

Kane vs. The God

Jun 26th, 2008 | By | Category: Social

am heartened to hear that you use hip hop to teach literature/poetry to the students you tutor. It is a shame that hip-hop so often gets dismissed as an art, when it really is the modern equivalent of centuries-old genres of poetry. Ever read any medieval poetry, particularly troubadour poetry? Take Shlomo ibn Gabirol, a […]

John Cole goes where I was too much of a chump to venture

Jun 26th, 2008 | By | Category: Social

I liked Tim Russert, even though I thought his BS gotcha nonsense was thorough idiocy and not helping the debate at all. He was a likable guy- friendly, always smiling. I understand it is a loss for the beltway folks, and he had a lot of really good friends and meant a lot to people, […]

Good post over at feministing

Jun 26th, 2008 | By | Category: Social

Black people should not be in bed with the DailyKos. I dont trust those fools one bit. They represent your typical superhip white liberal who probably feels comfortable using racial slurs amongst eachother’cause they are so “edgy”. I mean, they might as well be Pat Buchanan as far as I’m concerned. They just coming from […]

Megan and Mugabe

Jun 26th, 2008 | By | Category: Social

I heard an interview with a Mugabe supporter on the radio. When asked about farm nationalization, he said it was an unequivocal good. Was it? Clearly not. Mugabe isn’t the only crazy one. He’s a crazy figure head of a crazy segment of his society. Here’s a little controversy for you: Look at the impact […]

Obamas’so Black

Jun 24th, 2008 | By | Category: Barak Obama, Politics

As a white 20-something, we so, so got it. At least, myself and my 20-something friends did. We all we’re typing “FIST BUMP OMG” in our chat windows immediately. Followed by “dude, I want a relationship where we fist bump when I win the presidential nomination”. Also, Brian Jenning’s comment (“..was to be a small, […]

Today’s stupid analysis of Obama and blacks

Jun 23rd, 2008 | By | Category: Barak Obama

Obama’s formula for energizing blacks while appealing to whites relies in part on demonstrating independence from the more militant traditions of black politics and using rhetoric that spans race. He has opposed monetary reparations for descendants of slaves, for example. And he has said that he does not think his daughters should benefit from affirmative […]
