Buckley, Conservatives and Race

Jul 31st, 2008 | By | Category: Politics

WFB was a brilliant with a sharp, keen, and astute wit. His comments were intended to be fashioned as a mockery of Jackson’s politics and agenda, and certainly not his race. People like you are like an individual whom I came across at a bar one time; when asked if I supported President elect Obama […]

Really now, Barack as Paris Hilton?

Jul 30th, 2008 | By | Category: Social

“On a day when major news organizations across the country are taking Senator McCain to task for a steady stream of false, negative attacks, his campaign has launched yet another. Or, as some might say, ‘Oops! He did it again.’ Our dependence on foreign oil is one of the greatest challenges we face. In this […]

Obama and Affirmative Action

Jul 30th, 2008 | By | Category: Barak Obama

Senator John McCain said today that he supports the Arizona Civil Rights Initiative, which would ban preferences based on race, ethnicity, and sex in the state’s public contracting, education (including university admissions), and employment programs. Essentially identical initiatives will be before voters this fall in Colorado and Nebraska, and have been enacted in California, Washington, […]

Ludacris attempts to make hip-hop more irrelevant

Jul 30th, 2008 | By | Category: Entertainment

It’s turning out to be a tabloid kind of day for Sen. Barack Obama. First, John McCain’s campaign manager, Rick Davis, suggested on a conference call that depicting the Illinois Senator alongside Britney Spears and Paris Hilton in a campaign ad is merely comparing “apples to apples.” At the same time, a line out of […]

Bob Barr Collards and Coltrane

Jul 29th, 2008 | By | Category: Entertainment

Take a look at this: Barely more than one month into its first term, and the administration of President Barack Obama is entering the rarefied world of Never-Never Land —- the mythical world of Peter Pan where wishes magically come true and in which the normal laws of nature do not apply. How else, for […]

Loury and McWhorter on the Obama/King comparison

Jul 28th, 2008 | By | Category: Barak Obama

Loury’s curious article won’t leave anyone indifferent: To my mind, commentary about Obama’s ‘race’ speech in the press has been superficial and overtly, unreflectively partisan. (It was a fine speech, to be sure; don’t get me wrong. This guy is not only a brilliant politician, he’s a genuine intellectual. He has integrity. And, he’s brave, […]

To stimulate the left and right brain…

Today I won’t speak on serious stuff. Just want everybody to relax and have some rest:

Is this really racial profiling?

Jul 28th, 2008 | By | Category: Entertainment

Poverty and Racism are two most horrible social events that African Americans live with today in one of the strongest and powerful countries. Some people seem to care and are interested in struggling for changes. Alas, the majority still doesn’t care. One possible reason why does it happen is that the class and race of […]

The stupidity of polls

Jul 27th, 2008 | By | Category: Politics

As long as the polls lump older Cubans (primarily anti-Castro Republicans) in with Mexicans and Puerto Ricans (and other Central and South Americans), you are going to have stupid polls. For voting (polling) purposes, a catch all “Latino” designation doesn’t tell the whole story. As half-Cubana, and an early supporter of Obama, I can’t say […]

Obama’s NAACP Speech
