Re: Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson Agrees With Newt Gingrich, Says He Would Send Blacks Back 'To The Plantation'

No surprise coming from this contentious rabid Negro. I recall Rev Peterson on the Phil Donahue show back in the 90’s, ranting and railing against black women, stating they were " out of control" (his exact words) and how they are directly responsible for the disintegration of the black family. I have it documented on tape. He could never deny (which I doubt he would) saying it. I do agree that many of these government programs have served to some degree to undermine a culture of work ethic...

James Baldwin’s ‘I Am Not Your Negro’ will prepare you for the next four years

BEARING WITNESS 2 / 3 / 17 12:23 PM James Baldwin’s ‘I Am Not Your Negro’ will prepare you for the next four years To declare James Baldwin’s words and work “otherworldly” is a reasonable temptation. It seems like there is no other public intellectual who has written about race so prophetically. In The Fire Next Time from 1963, Baldwin wrote: “To act is to be committed, and to be committed is to be in danger. In this case, the danger, in the minds of most white Americans, is the loss of...

I posted this in the "tea partiers spit and call nigger/faggot" thread but it goes well here too, i think: I don't remember which republican politician said it, but during all the town hall melee and ensuing drama over healthcare reform, a politician said "This will be Obama's Waterloo"...

And in fact,...

One cannot pass judgment until benefits are reconciled with cost and or when the action experiences its full reaction. I think a truly civil and modern society should have Universal Health Care. I am not confident in this bill because the motives were all wrong. There was simply too much politics and ignorance that lead up to this. Much of the opposition to Health Care Reform was purely out of malice and spite. People wanted and want Obama and the Democrats to fail, including politicians and...

Sore Loser GOP Still Fighting Lost Health Care Battle It would be nice if Republicans could simply face the fact that they lost the battle of health care reform . But the party of privilege isn't used to hearing the word "NO" applied to anything they seek. So as President Barack Obama was signing in to law landmark legislation that will provide health care coverage for 32-million uninsured Americans, Republicans across the country were still trying to fight a battle they have already lost.
