    Salve for the slavery woundKnowledge, it has been said, will set you free. It is a true statement, and should not be dismissed out of hand. Knowledge will also go a long way toward bringing American blacks and whites together as fellow countrymen, having full appreciation for what they have in common . . . as brothers, if you will. “What can be the content of this knowledge that would bring about this miracle?” you might ask. Answer: A broad knowledge of two topics:1. worldwide history of Black slaves, and 2. the images and ideas that are gained from a...

    It seems President Fox of Mexico does not like people pointing out why he is a failure. To hide his failure, he decides to not only insult Americans, but Mexicans as well. Just look at one of Fox's recent comments: "There is no doubt that Mexicans...are doing jobs that not even blacks want to do there in the United States." He said this in a speech broadcast in part on local radio and reported on newspaper web sites (Reuters, Fri. May 13). reports the comment this way: "There's no doubt that the Mexican men and women...are doing the work...

    Judaism growing among black Americans CHICAGO, June 4 (UPI) -- Growing numbers in a congregation of black Jews in Chicago has necessitated a move to a bigger synagogue, once a safe house for Martin Luther King Jr. Rabbi Capers Funnye leads Beth Shalom B'nai Zaken Ethiopian Hebrew Congregation, which this weekend moves from a 1902 synagogue to the larger facility, the Chicago Tribune said. Beth Shalom B'nai Zaken traces its lineage to a congregation founded in 1915. The flock is mostly African-American, though there also are two white families, blacks from the Caribbean and a Russian whose father was...

    The Courageous Patriotism of Triple NickelBy Michael | May 26, 2003 It is easy to be patriotic when you have benefited from everything your country has to offer. It is easy to love your country when your country has made you wealthy and successful. It is easy to say you want to defend your country and its way of life when you are living the good life.What if you are a second-class citizen in your own country? Would you love it just as much? What if you were not afforded the rights of other citizens-would you be patriotic? What...

    The Republican Party's Black ProblemBy Jamie | February 3, 2003 The “indiscretion” of Trent Lott reflected a problem that has long plagued the Republican Party: its consistent failure to court Black votes and to attract Black candidates. Many wondered how the Republicans could have allowed a Senator with ties to the Conservative Citizens Council to represent the party of Lincoln in the Senate. At the same time, many critics make the argument that it’s the Democrats who are the biggest hypocrites on race. Yet Republicans often fail to fight back when they are falsely portrayed as racists. So what is it, exactly, that Republicans must...

    A GOP Sweep: African Americans React By Stephanie A. Crockett, Staff Writer and Reuters News Service Posted Nov. 6, 2002 -- Republicans consolidated their hold on the U.S. government Wednesday after a historic sweep of both chambers of Congress gave President Bush new power to enact his agenda, including a war against Iraq. With Republicans in control, what does it mean for African Americans? To message board user Lifesaver, it shows that more Blacks are voting Republican."It makes a serious statement about the traditional Blacks and other minorities in America," Lifesaver wrote. "The common stereotype that all Blacks are Democrats has become more and...

    This is part 2 of this series. In the last part, we were discussing how to reach out to African Americans in our communities to help them see the light, proselytize if you will, about voting for Simon. Strategies include: known person by known person. People were saying 90% vote Democrat, etc. But the truth of the matter is that if only 75% voted for Davis, that would certainly help us elect our man. I wanted to give another (hopeful) example of why we should reach out to the American Black community, as there are a lot of elements of...
