    <p>The NAACP is blackballing black conservatives. Specifically, two black conservatives: Deneen Borelli and the Reverend C. L. Bryant.</p> <p>You missed this? Considering the state of the liberal media these days, one shouldn’t be surprised.</p> <p>But there’s infinitely more to this story than this, although the rejection of Borelli and Bryant personifies the reason the NAACP has long since lost its hard-won credibility. Credibility that came from a long, distinctly honorable record of standing against the most vicious racism the American Left — yes the American Left — could dish out.</p>

    Michael Jackson. Go ahead, crack a joke, sigh or shake your head. Michael's lifestyle and his current predicament inexorably lead to those reactions. There seem to be only two main schools of thought concerning the one-time "King of Pop": he's either guilty of molesting a young boy and ought to be tried, convicted and put in a cell deep under a prison or he's innocent. These groups also seem to be split into two other categories: black and other. A couple of white friends have asked me why this should be. I chalk it up to history and love. Our...

    Black America has a growing problem that needs to be addressed. It is, in my opinion, the most persistent problem facing us as a race in this country. Despite what "our" media-appointed black leaders tell us, this problem is not racism, reparations, affirmative action, President Bush or the Confederate Battle Flag. It's attitude. Overall, we have terrible attitudes. If we want our situation to change, our attitudes will have to lead the way. Many of our so-called leaders would like us to believe that we as individuals have absolutely no control over our lives. They want us to think that...

    WASHINGTON (Talon News) -- After nearly three years of political wrangling over the nomination of Judge Charles W. Pickering, President Bush exercised his prerogative to put him on the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals while the Senate was in recess. Senate Democrats stymied Pickering's nomination through procedural obstacles when they were in the majority and finally resorted to a filibuster when faced with the certainty of confirmation if a floor vote were taken. In a statement Friday, Bush said that he was using his constitutional authority to appoint Pickering because "a minority of Democratic Senators has been using unprecedented obstructionist...

Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs - partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose their grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs." Sounds like Jesse...

    Black Group Glad NASCAR Cut Ties with Jesse Jackson; Racing Organization Can Continue Minority Outreach, But It Doesn't Need to Pay Off Jackson 7/29/03 2:14:00 PM -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- To: National Desk Contact: David Almasi, 202-371-1400 ext. 106, for Project 21 WASHINGTON, July 29 /U.S. Newswire/ -- NASCAR has severed its financial ties to the Reverend Jesse Jackson and his Rainbow/PUSH Coalition, ending what members of the African-American leadership network considered little more than a shakedown of the professional auto-racing organization. Project 21 members encourage NASCAR to continue its outreach to minorities, but consider Jackson9s past relationship more hurtful than helpful....

    What’s up with Miramax? Miramax, the Disney stepchild that’s giving monetary life to a proposed Bush-bashing flick by Michael Moore, is releasing “Buffalo Soldiers,” a movie demeaning the American military. Is this Welcome to the Wonderful Brave New World of Disney? Because of the questionable subject matter, the movie’s release had to be postponed five times. Based on news reports about its content, perhaps the powers that be should have left the thing on the shelf. Franklin J. Henderson, a retired army colonel and past president of the Ninth and Tenth Cavalry Association, told the Kansas City Star, “The film...

       WASHINGTON, July 21 /U.S. Newswire/ -- Citing racial insensitivity and the inappropriateness in using the name of a highly-decorated group of black servicemen in a portrayal of corrupt soldiers, members of the African-American leadership network Project 21 are demanding that the Miramax Film Corporation and its parent company The Walt Disney Company rename its upcoming film ''Buffalo Soldiers.''    The movie ''Buffalo Soldiers,'' based on a novel of the same name by Robert O'Connor and set to open in theaters on July 25, sarcastically portrays the U.S. Army in Germany in the late 1980s as filled with smugglers,...

    On Nov. 12, 2002, Steve Hinkle, an undergraduate at California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly) in San Luis Obispo, was walking around campus, posting fliers advertising a speech by Mason Weaver, author of "It's OK to Leave the Plantation" (1998, National Center for Public Policy Research.) In that book, Weaver -- an African-American -- traces his own journey "from Berkeley militant to conservative businessman," and argues that dependence on government welfare programs puts many modern African-Americans in circumstances akin to slavery. Weaver asserts that "overseers" and "drivers" still exist on today's "mental plantation." He uses these terms to describe those...

  • Nor deny to any person

    Nor deny to any person… The Supreme Court’s affirmative action decision regarding Grutter and Gratz has had the country abuzz for the past week. And while either side of the argument may lay claim to victory, I believe the country has been dealt a significant defeat. The decision, besides striking down the University of Michigan’s undergraduate admissions policy, left much to be desired. The only thing clear when the two cases are viewed side by side is the incoherence of the decisions, particularly when one reads the opinions of Justice O’Connor’s. She apparently desired to be everything to all people;...

    The Reparations pipe dream and The Taxcut reality for Blacks Americans When I think I finally have the self-promoted and selected black leaders figured out they throw me another crave ball. While doing research online I came across Jesse Jackson’s weekly commentary in the Chicago Sun Times, where he is railing against taxcuts and carrying the Democrat Banner that taxcuts only benefit the wealth, funny that such an argument would come from a wealth man like Jackson, he goes on to state in his commentary that taxcuts put in danger social programs such as Medicaid and Medicare, as well as...

    (CNSNews.com) - As homosexual advocacy groups increasingly model their push for greater acceptance on the rhetoric and tactics of the civil rights movement of the 1960s, some black groups are beginning to take exception. The comparison between the two movements and the "rights" associated with them can be misleading, said David Almasi, director for Project 21, a group of conservative black leaders. "Homosexuality is behavior. It's not something you're born with," Almasi said. The homosexual movement identifies itself with a number of sympathetic causes, including the Holocaust remembrance and the civil rights struggle, to advance its effort to gain acceptance....
