Black Leaders Remind SC Governor Nikki Haley That She’s a Minority Too Civil rights leaders in South Carolina have long been bothered by the far right wing stances taken by Republican Governor Nikki Haley, so much so that they are now reminding Haley that she too is a minority. Haley’s support of a stricter voter I.D. laws is just the most recent of what civil right leaders consider a new right wing offensive aimed at eroding the voting rights of minorities. Although Haley’s parents were...

Why did they even bother? Is that the issue in South Carolina? Really sometimes I worry about our next generation of black people.

Quote: "Although Haley’s parents were born in India and later moved to South Carolina, Haley does not focus much on her heritage. Black leaders are nowhighlighting how Haley’s actions misalign with her heritage." Believe me she does focus on her heritage, though it may be behind closed doors I betcha she celebrates Holi just like the majority of Indians in this country. DO not buy this line of cock and bull. And another thing that we need to stop doing as Black people stop trying to dictate...

The point is that she is systematically blocking and trying to dismantle gains of the Civil Rights Movement, like The Voting Rights Act and she is in lock-step with southern racist republicans that have been working to destroy each and every gain in equal rights, civil rights, and voting rights that have been granted to not only Black people/African Americans, but to ALL minorities in this country --- including HER. I'm glad that they pointed out that she is a minority. All of the minorities...

"Black Leaders Remind SC Governor Nikki Haley That She’s a Minority Too" She could care less and she is what she is...a far right wing Republican and crying minority? That train left the station a long time ago. You have to consider the bigger picture for Governor Nikki Haley. Serving as the Governor of South Carolina is just a career move up the political ladder. She is one of those select young Republicans being groomed to run for President in the future, possibly 2016 if Obama wins...

The percentage of African Americans voting in South Carolina is no less than African American voting in most all other states in America. And, irregardless, she should have been called out on this. But, knowing racist South Carolinians the way I do, she sneaked into that office because many Whites that voted for her were not aware of the fact that she was Pakistani/Indian, making assumptions based on her last (married name). I can assure you that if Nimrata Randhawa had been the name on the...

This article is a piss poor explanation of the issue at hand, Voter ID'ing and where Nikki Haley stands on it. I've seen better amateur blog posts. And I tried googling this subject and at best it was vague. If they are going to write about this topic they need to explain what the hell Nikki is doing. And I stand by my statement, REGARDLESS. If black people are so tired of other people coming into the U.S. and taking our set asides then we ought to do something about it. Johnny Cochran's...

"And another thing that we need to stop doing as Black people stop trying to dictate what other ethnicities heritages and norms are based on our group experiences. Sometimes we act like white people in that way. We are going to end up getting our collective feelings hurt." Brilliant! Too often, American Nergroes make the mistake of thinking other non-whites look from the same prism as they do. This is simply wishful thinking. They do not . Whether they are Indians, Africans, Asians, Latinos,...

I don't think that African Americans have any "pipe dreams" of all non-White people holding hands with us". But I'm glad that there are African Americans out there that don't mind reminding ANY 'immigrants' or 'other minorities' of the ONLY reason that they are here in the first place. African Americans should not lie down and take it while our contributions to racial acceptance, racial equality, rights to equal education, rights to not be discriminated against in hiring, education, housing,...

What does asking for id have to do with minorities? How does it represent inequality?
