Hillary Clinton Admits her fear of Black Men in Hoodies…where’s the outrage?

I am currently making final edits on my book so I must admit I missed this Hillary Clinton tidbit. A few days ago she admitted that a lot of well meaning white people fear the black man in a hoodie. So should she be applauded for her honesty? Would this be a non-story if Ted Cruz or Donald Trump made the same remark? Clinton feels she has the black vote on lock and comments should give black folks pause.

Mike Huckabee compares Iran deal to the Holocaust…did he go too far?


Desperate people will say or do anything. Mike Huckabee’s remarks about the Iran deal qualify him as desperate. He wants to be on the debate stage next week and he will say anything in an effort to become a part of the conversation. Watch the clip and share your thoughts.

Trump Kids says Donald Trump is a great dad, but he is still a terrible candidate

“Our father, Donald J. Trump is a true visionary and a great mentor,” Donald Jr., Ivanka and Eric Trump said in the statement. “He is a brilliant negotiator with a proven track record of getting things done. Most importantly, he is an incredible dad and role model. He raised us to work hard and strive for excellence in all that we do.”

No one is questioning Donald Trump’s parenting style. Insults a war hero, tells a packed house and millions watching the personal phone number of another candidate and calls illegal immigrants “murderers and rapist”. Might be Father of the Year but will never be President of the United States.

Black Lives Matter but do you just want someone to say it?

Talk is cheap and we know politicians will say anything to get elected. At the NetRoots convention a boisterous crowd in the audience tried to get Martin O’Malley and Bernie Sanders to declare Black Lives Matter, but they would not just say that O’Malley said Black Lives Matter, White Lives Matter and All Lives Matter and this enraged the crowd, but did they really think either of them would make a racial declaration? The Democrats really don’t think they have to do much or say much to get the black vote. They are not going to bend over backward seeking something they already think they have. Blacks came out in record numbers for President Obama. In 2008 we made history and in 2012 we did it again. There was a collective sense of pride, but 2016 is a totally different animal. Hillary Clinton (heir apparent), Bernie Sanders (radical socialist) and Martin O’Malley (Smiley). There are other Democrats but no one among them is going to create the Obama level of enthusiasm. So what are the choices on the other side: Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, Lindsey Graham, Rick Perry, Ben Carson, Chris Christie and a bunch of other names that don’t come to mind. Each voter has to make a choice and we have the next year to watch and listen to all the candidates and determine what candidate can do more than repeat a hashtag.

Donald Trump learned a lesson today…don’t mess with a war hero

Donald Trump is an arrogant tough talking loudmouth. He is thin skinned and will attack anyone that crosses him. His blunt talk has been cheered by many, but today he might have let his mouth talk him into a fight he can not win. It is one thing to beat up and belittle the illegal immigrants, but it is another thing to belittle a POW. You can’t do it and most people with a modicum of good sense know it, but not The Donald. He thought it was going to just be another witty Trumpism, but it is not. A person who has never served a day for their country definitely has no right to question the service of someone who was captured by the enemy and lived to tell it. Trump is a know it all but obviously he did not know this is just wrong.

Should we erase the Confederacy from history?

The Civil War was not fought to free the slaves. The War was fought to save the Union. The North had to pay for their laborers and the South could buy their labor and own it for a lifetime. There were slaves in the North, but in the South they were the backbone of the labor force. The South lost the War, but they have held own to their symbols of their glory days. From flags to statues the south is adorned with relics from the good old days. The symbols that they worship are viewed as symbols of oppression for some. So the question is should all of these symbols be removed from the public square? Should schools named after Confederates be renamed? Do we want to erase the Confederacy from history?

Rick Perry said something the other day that is worth repeating

FROM PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE RICK PERRY:
I am running for President because I want to make life better for all people, even those who don’t vote Republican. I know Republicans have much to do to earn the trust of African-Americans. Blacks know that Republican Barry Goldwater, in 1964, ran against Lyndon Johnson, a champion of civil rights. They know that Barry Goldwater opposed the Civil Rights Act of 1964, because he felt that parts of it were unconstitutional. States supporting segregation in the South cited “states’ rights” as a justification for keeping blacks from the voting booth and the dinner table. As you know, I am an ardent believer in the Tenth Amendment, which was ratified in 1791 as part of the Bill of Rights. The Tenth Amendment says that “the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” I know that state governments are more accountable to you than the federal government is. But I am also an ardent believer in the Fourteenth Amendment, which says that no state shall “deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” There has been – and will continue to be – an important and legitimate role for the federal government in enforcing civil rights. Too often, we Republicans – myself included – have emphasized our message on the Tenth Amendment but not our message on the Fourteenth – an Amendment, it bears reminding, that was one of the first great contributions of the Republican Party to American life, second only to the abolition of slavery.
