Thad Cochran was in a tough primary. He feared he would lose so he had to resort to desparate measures. For a Republican those measures included reaching out to the black community, and they reached back. they came out despite their party affliliation and voted against Cochran’s opponent, and Cochran won the GOP nomination. So was this actually outreach? No this was a man at the end of his rope and he used the black community as the knot. They saved him, but what did they get for their efforts?

ColorofChange.org, Members of Congressional Black Caucus and other civil rights groups Ask President for Federal Law Enforcement Guidance to Curb Racial Profiling
New York, NY – ColorOfChange.org, the nation’s largest online civil rights organization, urges President Obama to take immediate action to close discriminatory profiling loopholes for Federal law enforcement, and urges Congress to pass the Eliminate Racial Profiling Act (ERPA).
“While the President has the authority to reduce profiling abuses by Federal law enforcement, Congress can go many steps further by passing the The Eliminate Racial Profiling Act (S. 1038 / H.R. 2851), said Rashad Robinson, Executive Director of ColorOfChange.org. “This legislation provides an opportunity to fix a major broken piece of our criminal justice system and address a law enforcement culture that has forced millions of Black folks to live in fear and cast entire communities as suspect.” Targeted profiling by law enforcement across the country, including by federal law enforcement is part of a deeply racist, brutal culture that is in desperate need of reform. These discriminatory practices cause tremendous harm to Black families and communities and can lead to unlawful arrests, deportations, incarceration and in some cases serious injury or death. Blacks folks are twice as likely to be arrested and almost four times as likely to experience the use of force during encounters with police. “By taking a stand against discriminatory profiling, President Obama and Congress can send a strong message that they intend to protect the civil rights and liberties of our nation’s increasingly diverse communities, help rebuild the trust in law enforcement and go a long way toward ensuring equal treatment under the law for all individuals regardless of race or ethnicity,” said Robinson. Today leaders of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, Black Caucus, Hispanic Caucus and Asian Pacific American Caucus joined other members of Congress and civil rights advocates to call on the Obama administration to issue improved profiling guidance for federal law enforcement that closes current loopholes.

This is the story of 3 Cricket smartphones. Two were good and one was very, very bad. We have been trying to get the bad one replaced for months, but when you call the 800 number you are connected to people named Paul and Jane who barely speak English. You are given other numbers to call that are answered by automated voices commanding you to hit 1, 2 or 3 where you are greeted by other automated voices. If you get a real human response you are tempted to say Eureka, but that joy is short lived because they will direct you back into the land of 1 800 numbers. So my question is who do you call to get this phone replaced? Need to talk to someone who can really make this happen.
GOP and Dems Sing We Shall Overcome on the 50th Anniversary of the Civil Rights Act…is this what unity looks like?
When I saw this today I thought about something my pastor says,”you can tie the tales of two cats together and they will be unified, but they will not be in unity.”*
*No cats were harmed in this analogy.
