Double Standard

Lately the press has done it's best to crucify Obama's pastor for the snippets of a sermon posted on You Tube. He was called a racist and a person that is not a true patriot. Jeremiah Wright served in the Marines and the Navy.
The real racist is Pat Buchanan.... In response to the Mr. Wright and Obama, Pat had tis to say "Barack says we need to have a conversation about race in America.

Fair enough. But this time, it has to be a two-way conversation. White America needs to be heard from, not just lectured to.

This time, the Silent Majority needs to have its convictions, grievances and demands heard. And among them are these:

First, America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known.Wright ought to go down on his knees and thank God he is an American.

Second, no people anywhere has done more to lift up blacks than white Americans. Untold trillions have been spent since the '60s on welfare, food stamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing, Pell grants, student loans, legal services, Medicaid, Earned Income Tax Credits and poverty programs designed to bring the African-American community into the mainstream.
Governments, businesses and colleges have engaged in discrimination against white folks - with affirmative action, contract set-asides and quotas -- to advance black applicants over white applicants.
Churches, foundations, civic groups, schools and individuals all over America have donated time and money to support soup kitchens, adult education, day care, retirement and nursing homes for blacks.

We hear the grievances. Where is the gratitude?"

If anyone did not pick up on this then what was slavery? It sounds as if my 600,000 ancestors came over here on a pleasure cruise. It was some add my folks responded to? You know learn about Christ and strip away your savagery.
Welfare, food stamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing, Pell grants, student loans, legal services, Medicaid, Earned Income Tax Credits and poverty programs is the salvation for my people a good gesture from white America.... Those programs were meant for people that are struggling. I have met plenty of people that benefited from these programs. I knew white guy that was getting the Pell grant, GI Bill and going to school for free because his dad is a disable vet. I wonder what Pat has to say in response. I have watched the news and nothing in response to Pat's comments. It is sad when double standards are so blatant and go unheard.
Read is all I have to say..

Obama's Pastor

You can judge a person by the company he keeps and after viewing the man he refer to as "Uncle" (Pastor) sermon. I am starting to warm up to Obama and he should not have to distance himself from Jeremiah Wright. That is some "bs"!!!! We have a corrupt system right now that obtain power through deceit and no one seems to care. There is New Orleans is still struggling and no one is saying anything. Everything Mr. Wright is saying is no different than what Cornel West has said for the past twenty years plus. I believe that there are some people that do not want to hear the truth about how black folk feel. 4th of July did not in it's original form include people of color and held women at a lower standard. New Orleans should have been the alarm clock.
Obama do not bow tell them to kiss your tail and keep rollin with Jeremiah.

Obama's Minister

I am still amazed at how little we as a people know about each other. Obama should not apologize for his pastor regardless of what he is saying. Matter of fact if Obama said kiss my butt I would have understood.
When the press started to fill the air waves with Reverend Jeremiah Wright Jr., saying, "God damn America" and suggesting that the country bore some blame for the attacks of 9/11 they honestly do not understand the black community and why some of us do not laugh at conspiracy stories.
Slavery & Segregation merits the reason for our not trusting the government. The Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment and MK Ultra are not a figment of my imagination. People wonder why people believe AIDS is man made. 9/11 statement is no different than El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz saying ""Chickens coming home to roost never made me sad".
The political structure past and present has practice human rights violations that possibly was guiding light for Hitler. The treatment of the Indigenous nations and Africans are examples of the cruelty this government is capable of. Lets not forget the crack epidemic that was fueled by the federal government and currently heroin is getting some help with this alleged war. Why is the health care system twisted and a person that serves their county to the fullest has to struggle. Why are kids in rural and urban areas coming up short in education. This government has failed to many individuals and that is why people are on the verge of anarchy.

David Patterson

I am in awe of this man. He is legally blind and black but is able to reach the summits peak. What he is able to accomplish is a true inspiration.

-1977 BA in history from Columbia University

-1983 Law degree from Hofstra Law School

-1985 - Elected to the New York State Senate at age 31, becoming Albany's youngest Senator at the time.

-2003 - Becomes Minority Leader of the New York State Senate; the first non-white legislative leader in New York’s history.

-2004 - First legally blind person to address the Democratic National Convention.

-2007 - New York's first African American Lieutenant Governor.

-2008 - First legally blind person to take the Oath of Office as Governor and New York's first African American Governor.

Regardless of how he came into office the fact remains that he is a unique individual that has earned his spot in history.

The Coincidence of Yeshua

Cesare Borgia (September 13, 1475 – March 12, 1507) son of Pope Alexander VI, and Vannozza dei Cattanei, sibling to Lucrezia Borgia, Gioffre Borgia Prince.
Read is all I can say. There is a reason why Muslims and people that practice Judaism shy away from using images of anyone in their religion.

Next President

The person that gets the "House" regardless the party need to invest in our kids regardless of economic, racial, gender or whatever category you want label them. I am tired of going to schools and seeing chaos. I am tired of the tired speeches given by politicians that claim they care. The other day I notice a Amber alert flashing across the billboard and to my surprise no one on the news seem to care. A 19 year old sexually assaulted a girl on a school bus. What sort of madness is this.
Today in class I had to break up a fight and question why a child was singing a song about sucking on a girls toes... These kids are in the eighth grade...
If America wants to be great then lets help Kenya were Sexual Offenses Act two years ago, the 2007 police crime statistics show 165 children were defiled every month, which translates to six minors daily. A total of 1,984 children had their lives shattered by rapists.(
Lets go to Memphis and shut it down. Lets hold everyone in the government responsible for Camden High (N.J.) juniors having a high failure rate in the state of New Jersey on the high school science test, a shocking 87.7 percent.
Effective crime prevention starts with early education. If a child cannot percieve a better life then they will fall into the system. America's downfall will not come from some bogyman with a turban. It will come from with in and unless we stand up and demand humanity from the three branches of the government.
