    Lloyd Marcus is one of the strongest voices in the Tea Party movement. Those in the know understand that the Tea Party is made up of Patriotic Americans from all walks of life. Race, gender, and even political party affiliation, place no barriers on those who love their country and want to stop this out of control, drunk with power President, and Congress. As Stacy Drake pointed out recently, the radical left, the Marxist-democrats, not only use race as a weapon, they make up stories of racial tension, like those coming from the recent Tea Party protest in Washington, D.C.

    Folks don't like nobody being too proud or too free. So observes Celie, a character played by Whoopi Goldberg in her 1985 film debut, The Color Purple. The film is two hours of blacks holding other blacks down, with whites playing a supporting role. It demonstrates the curious phenomenon of lower classes policing their members to assure they remain lower class. This is done alternately by "taking them down a peg or two" with physical abuse or, more commonly, verbal berating. "Who do they think they are?" is a common refrain. This is a real life phenomenon which is...

    Abortion isn't a me issue. It's not a you issue. It's not just a woman's issue. It's a human issue. And with over 51 million lives lost since 1973, it is a human crisis. African-American women abort their children at over 3x the rate of white women and 2x the rate of all other races combined. And all, the while, Planned Parenthood profits from the destruction.

    In the midst of swirling rumors of a soon-to-be published bombshell story, New York Gov. David Paterson (D) said Wednesday that criticism of him has been motivated by his race. Paterson, who is black and blind, said on Imus in the Morning that he has been the subject of "outrageous rumors" the past two weeks centering around a supposedly damaging report to be published in the New York Times this week. "They're not really calling for different types of conduct and what I think is that I have been depicted in a way that has been racialized, sexualized, hyper-sexualized and...

    Glenn Beck may have stepped in it again. Sort of. The radio host and Fox News Channel commentator has folks in a minor uproar for even questioning the term African-American on his syndicated radio show Thursday. “African-American is a bogus, PC, made-up term,” Beck said, in a discussion about the new Census forms. “That is not a race. Your ancestry is from Africa, and now you live in America.

When I reflect on how my black father’s initiative, intelligence, and unflinching work ethic lifted our family out of a deteriorating Detroit suburb into a brighter future, I marvel at memories of him nevertheless lecturing me about “the white man” and my inherent racial disadvantage.

With Democratic Rep. Danny Davis signaling he’s ready to step down from the House after seven terms to run for president of the Cook County Board next year, there’s a real possibility that a non-African-American candidate could win the seat. “I think there is always that concern,” said Richard Boykin, a former Davis chief of staff who is mentioned as a possible contender. “It’s a fear that a lot of people have.” “There’s great concern,”...

    In my youth, I lived a wild and crazy life; drugs, women and partying, basically 24/7. Scholarships permitted me to attend art college where I hung with hippies. While the hippies preached peace and love, most were extremely angry at America. There I was, a black student from the ghetto of east Baltimore, who could not figure out what these spoiled white kids from well to do families were so p-o-ed about. However, their philosophy was free love and drugs. So, I said, "Right on!" I grew weary of my lifestyle and asked God to help me. He did. I...

    ALBANY — When Gov. David A. Paterson met recently with a group of mostly black legislators, he got an earful. They wanted to know his strategy for recovering from his disastrous first year. They complained that their constituents were furious over Mr. Paterson’s cuts to hospitals and schools, and that his administration had failed to consult with them on important issues. It fell to the Rev. Al Sharpton, a Paterson confidant at the meeting, in late March, to make peace. Better communication was needed, Mr. Sharpton said, but he added that lawmakers should stand behind Mr. Paterson — especially now....

She and her husband, John, patronize gas stations in Rockford and Phoenix, Ill. They travel 18 miles to a health food store in Chicago's South Shore neighborhood for vitamins, supplements and personal care products. The reason? They want to solve what they call "the crisis in the black commu- nity." They want to, as they say, "buy black." The Andersons, African-Americans who rose from humble means, are attempting to spend their money for one year exclusively with black-owned businesses and...

    About half of last year's 179 murders in New Orleans occurred in daylight, with spikes at the lunch and dinner hours, a fact that officials and experts say underscores the brazen nature of the slayings -- and may indicate that many are executions. Ninety people were murdered between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m., with 19 of them killed between noon and 1 p.m. -- more than any other hour of the day -- and 16 killed between 5 and 6 p.m.District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro said the daylight killings speak to a pervasive lack of respect for the justice system.

    On Monday, January 19th, America commemorated the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr. His dream of an equal America is in many ways personified in Barack Obama, whose inauguration as our first African-American president took place the following day. Obama's triumph is a monumental achievement for black Americans. It is also a watershed for America as a whole, a final repudiation of an era when black men and women were not afforded the inalienable rights endowed to all persons by God as expressed in the Declaration of Independence. But while Obama's ascendance to the White House has been almost uniformly...

    By William Owens, Jr. In a crisis situation, people without a North Star are reactive. Unable to proactively remedy a situation, they desperately fall back on old themes, old playbooks, and old mentalities that worked in the past. As John McCain continues to surge in the polls, a panicked Barack Obama will once again focus on the race issue. Obama’s race propelled the inexperienced State Senator to the national stage and sustained him through a bitter primary against a female Presidential Candidate. Once Obama became the presumptive nominee, empty rhetoric and platitudes of “hope” and “change” were only able...

    Obama and the Black American Family DonÂ’t Jibe By William Owens If Black Americans honestly believe Barack Obama truly has the best interests of their families in mind, then Black Americans had better pay attention to Obama on paper and not merely on skin. Barack Obama has consistently shown his opposition to several key factors that protect the Black American family: On Gay Marriage: By a large margin, Black Americans widely oppose same-sex marriage. 67% of Black Americans favor a constitutional amendment that would define marriage between that of a man and a woman. A national survey by the Pew...

    They are not natural politicians, but people from all walks of life who have a grounded understanding of the issues and propose well thought out and common sense solutions. One of them is significantly worthy of mention. He’s Dr. Marion Thorpe Jr., former Chief Medical Officer of the State of Florida. Dr. Thorpe is a community leader and finds himself in a rare seat that the GOP can realistically pick up (The district, while heavily Democratic and currently being served by Democratic Representative Alcee Hastings for 16 years , has a very low voter turn out. Recent migration of large...

    During his six years as New York’s schools chancellor, Joel Klein has spent many a Sunday morning speaking from the pulpit of a black church about his efforts to reform the public school system and to help African-American kids get a better education. “We have to make education the civil rights issue of our time,” Klein asserted in a speech for Al Sharpton’s National Action Network in Memphis this year. “In America today, we have a racial achievement gap that is the shame of this great nation, and until we get right on education, we are not going to be...

    Barack Obama's liberal policies are the enemy of black Americans By William Owens, Jr. Barack Obama does not think too highly of Black America. Whether liberal puppet-masters in his campaign are prompting this or Obama, himself, lacks a real connection with the Black American struggle, one thing is clear: Barack Obama and his party do not want us to leave the oppressive plantation mindset that has exploited the Black vote for years. Obama is far more liberal than he is Black. His elitist views that Black Americans cannot succeed, contribute to society, or take care of our families without government...

    The biggest consumers of rap music in the United States are not ghetto black youth, but rather, white youth of the suburbs. But quite different from black youth, white youth do not kill each other. They have immunity to murder. They use the music to posture as being deviant or rebellious, in their high school years. Then they play it in their dorms in university, and after graduation they simply grow out of it, as they seek to carve out wholesome lives in safe neighbourhoods. Black youth in the American ghetto chide their friends who show interest in mathematics as...

    *Now that I have your attention, you have to know that the title is far from the truth. At least it is for any sane person, but not for a growing number of Black women who are now using the R. Kelly acquittal to bolster their claim that Black men hate Black women. Before I deal with that, let me tell you a story. It was the mid-nineties and I was hanging out with Jermaine Dupri at the Santa Monica airport in California, where R & B group Jagged Edge was filming one of their videos. It was Summertime and...

    The Poetry and Music of War By Yervand Kochar Being the first modern war, the American Civil War was, in a sense, the last romantic one. In spite of having highly distinct political and economic motivations, the war was essentially about something different. It was about a lifestyle changing, a whole Southern micro-civilization transforming. As a result, the spring of slavery, which was moving the Southern mechanism, popped out of the machine. Emotions suppressed, expressions silenced, flowed out of the plantation soil and the sound accompanying liberation was that of the first uniquely American music: the Negro spiritual. “Spirituals were...

    "The move was seen by political pundits as a bold albeit misguided attempt to bolster his popularity amongst African-Americans, young voters, and elements of the criminal sub-culture — all groups with which he is trailing badly in the polls." Read more here: http://www.crazyforum.org/
