Quoted from the article, these are things that Republicans are suing Democrats for: It's pretty pathetic that this is the best that black conservatives can do. The fact is that above and beyond any party affiliations, it is conservative ideology that was behind everything listed above. What does that say about conservatives that they are attacking Democrats because of their previous conservative positions?

I've only given a brief description of Dr. Steele's research. His research is much more complex than what's been discussed here. However, keep in mind that Dr. Steeele is a social psychologist. His work has been heavily influenced by scholars such as Kenneth Clarke, Jonathan Kozol, Amin Maalouf, and Daryl Scott, author of Contempt and Pity (1997). He has also co-written a book with Dr. Asa Hillard entitled Young, Gifted, and Black: Promoting High Achievement Among African American Students...

Look forward to hearing your review work4rymes Yes the film is an obvious parallel to what is happening today, but it is set firmly and convincingly in the 1950's. Rather than 'hitting everyone over the head' with his message, Clooney chooses to tell his story via the newsteam at CBS and in particular on air broadcaster Edward Murrow. I think the film was made more for those of us who weren't around in the McCarthy era, to prompt discussion and further reading. I don't think there was time...

The music stopped selling because we stopped hearing it. Records companies are shelling out BIG BUCKS to determine what you hear on the radio. You'll hear this song 45 times before you'll hear Jill Scott once. We are basically listening to Clear Channel's personal, payola-enhanced playlist every time we turn on the radio, no matter what programming format it is. Add to that people who apparently buy records because they like to hum to the background music or not take lyrics "too seriously"...

Re: Which is more important in the law: the truth or money?

It certainly is. I think a significant number of us tend to think all is well as long as "we know the truth, we know the real deal." Noble. But we don't get what we want or need. We get strapped to the electric chair "knowing the truth in our heart." Pfft! Why unfortunately? It's not as if it only works to the benefit of the Super Rich. All you have to do is have more money to spend than your opponent and your odds of winning dramatically improve. You don't need "truth" (what is truth?).
