A Southerner Speaks Out on the So-Called Confed...

As an American who had ancestors who fought for the Confederacy and a Southerner whose family roots in the South go back for over 200 years, I am aware of the history of the Civil War, what led up to Continue reading read more »

Who We Are

Congratulations to American voters on making Vladimir Putin the second most happy man in the world today. And they are owed a debt of gratitude by the British Government too: no longer is there a need to worry about how Continue reading read more »

It’s A Hard Life

Some weeks ago, when I posted in response to the terrorist bombings in Brussels, I titled my piece after what I had always known, until then, as a Nanci Griffith song, although it was actually written by Julie Gold   Continue reading read more »

Originally posted on Cute Girl With A Banjo:If they arent doing anything unlawful, then they shouldnt have anything to worry about.  Its a common refrain used by defensive white people who would like to pretend that minorities, specifically black people, are not targeted by law enforcement. Im sorry to say there was an ignorant time read more »

NO SHAME FOR THE MAJORITY

I read an article this morning (yes some of us still read the newspaper) about how the Nation of Islam ‘accused’ the Baltimore county police of having been trained by the Mossad and Shin Bet. For those of you who do not know what these institutions are, the Mossad is the Israeli equivalent of our [...] read more »

Save Baltimore, Save US

Friends, The war on Black Americans in Baltimore is the war on US. I will explain that. And I will explain how we need to react to this aggression. First, the racists riots are a continuation of Obamas Arab Spring Continue reading read more »

Sheriff Morgan on the "Super-Predator", Thug Co...

Since last week's video release from the Escambia County Sheriff to the black community, a number of comments have been raised. The video has gone viral. One has to question, why a man running for office would willingly go on camera and essentially dismiss a huge demographic that he would need to be re-elected? In doing some research, I went to Youtube and watched numerous publicly recorded speeches, interviews and press opportunities of the Honorable David Morgan for the last five years. I feel as if ... read more »

COME, LET US REASON…

As far as I can tell, both the hard left and the hard right need to be on some type of medication. I have made no secret of the fact that I do not like the policies of the person currently occupying the White House. What I have not made clear is that I do [...] read more »

I Can't Breathe. Thoughts I wrote in support of...

I hate when I have to write anything of a serious nature. I occasionally write about stories in the news, but I like to put a funny spin on whatever the subject is, add my own flavor in a way (ridiculous or not) that no one else could.Whenever I feel I have to write a serious piece, it's usually something very upsetting. If I can't even put any humor into a piece, I know it's serious. I had to write this piece, on the items in the news lately that revolve around the riots in Ferguson and protests nationw... read more »

A MODEST SUGGESTION

I am going to keep this short today. With the racial tensions at a height that I haven’t seen since the 1960’s (yes, I was around then) because of the recent incidents in Ferguson, MO and New York City it seems that the police everywhere in this country are now under attack for how they [...] read more »

OpEd: Eric Garner's Death Should Not Have Happened

By Jessica Thomas Lewis I am enraged about Michael Brown and Ferguson. I am enraged about Eric Garner. I am enraged about the 12-year-old boy shot in Cleveland, within two seconds of police arriving. I am enraged and saddened by the plethora of black men being shot in the streets by police officers, and in Eric Garner's case, choked to death. I want you to see this. Watch this video of Eric Garner, dead or nearly dead, on the street. Listen to the words of the man taking the video. Eric Garner was ... read more »

If you don't want to read, that's fine. I suggest you check out 'ruckuslike' on YouTube, whose most recent video is just so on point. It's been months since I've really gone into detail about major events which have reopened issues which to be honest, never went away. So let's talk about the case verdict which has unequivocally shown that racism is still very much a problem.

Welcome To Purgatory

So, it’s been many, many moons since I’ve written and posted anything to my blog. I’d tell you that I’ve been too busy but that would only be partially true. I believe that if it’s important enough, you make time. Frankly, it just hasn’t been important enough. What many people fail to understand is that [...] read more »

Stefan Zweig's Moral Dilemma

Last night I went to an event at The Center for Fiction for the release of a new biography of Stefan Zweig by George Prochnik. While it was a fascinating discussion in a lot of ways the thing that stuck in my mind was the moral dilemma posed by Zweig's confrontation with the Nazis.At a press conference in New York in 1935, Zweig avoided reporters' attempts to get him to condemn Germany. “I would never speak against Germany," he said. "I would never speak against any country.” He may have thought it was m... read more »

A World Of Hate

There are some things you never expect to see. Yesterday, in between goofing around with friends and a relaxing afternoon spent with my couch and trusty Netflix account, one of those things happened. My CNN app alerted me to breaking news. I assumed that, like the last 50 or so, this would be regarding the [] read more »

Why?

I hear people talking about the problems in our justice system, specifically blacks are over represented, and that is the result of prejudice. Why? Why are the people making that statement? What if they are actually prejudiced against blacks? Let Continue reading read more »

Engaged to Marry Someone of a Different Ethnicity?

For over the past five years, I have worked with couples of different backgrounds from around the world. This includes black, white, mixed and other. Modern weddings incorporate both the bride's and groom's religious affiliations or customs. If you are looking to marry soon, there are a few fundamental considerations you should be making now. Get organized about how you want to the wedding to be remembered. Consider how your wedding party will look, your guest list and the flow of the ceremony.Design you... read more »

Classifying and Pigeon-Holing People

I look at objects and situations and categorize, pigeon-hole, and classify pretty much everything I encounter. I'm sure a lot of other people do this too, but probably only a small portion of the population do it to the same extent that I do. From an day-to-day standpoint, this serves me well, it could be orienting myself by observing sun-faded paint on south facing storefronts or looking at low clouds moving or landed seagulls out the window to determine the prevailing wind direction. It could be mak... read more »

Zimmerman is a marked man...

*This picture was taken outside of the courthouse in Sanford, FloridaLet me start by saying this: I believe justice was served with the not guilty verdict in this case. My husband and I have been in a heated debate over the last two weeks in regards to the Zimmerman trial. He was advocating for a conviction, I was advocating for an acquittal. Our reasons have nothing to do with race on how we looked at this case. Death threats are already flooding the internet against Zimmerman. I feel... read more »

Oops! Excuse my accidental racism

My 70's class from Pearl River Central, Carriere, Mississippi Have you ever just said the wrong thing? Have you ever been so comfortable with your own skin that you made an off color joke about someone else’s? Or, do you harbor deep thoughts of ill will and dislike that eventually the inside darkness spills out into sunlight, the thoughts become words or actions, leaking out the poison that is within your skin cells? Then you might be a racist. Tracy Being Southern, talking all c... read more »

How I deal with being Black with mixed children...

As you can see from my family's photo, that light skinned man (his mother is Hispanic, his father is white), is my husband, and all of those light-skinned little ones (or high-yellow as my sister jokes) are all of my children. My husband came across a story yesterday morning that made my blood boil, and I came straight to the computer, without eating breakfast, or drinking my morning coffee, so bear with me.Virginia father says he was suspected of kidnapping his kids by Walmart security -- due to his chi... read more »

Open letter to the President of the United States

Mr. President Barack Obama,As the leader of the free world I'm sure you are a very busy man, so I will try and make this brief. I am a young mother of six beautiful children. I am a Pro-Life wife, a devout Catholic, and an Army veteran. I know you have very little respect for the opinions or values of pro-lifers like myself, and I'm sure that what I have to say will not move you in any way whatsoever towards the plight of the unborn. However, since we still have free speech in America, I cannot stand by ... read more »

Guns and Races

Hey, Al Sharpton you race baiting pig...

You, Marc H. Morial, andBen Jealous can shove it!!! The current congressional hearing against Eric Holder has nothing to do with race. You guys are irrelevant, and need to go and find a nice quiet place to retire. You all are the reason that the race issue is even being talked about today. Are you so afraid of being obscure, that you will throw the word racism about to see where it sticks? The obvious answer is yes. If this exact same incident happened under Bush, and he enacted Executive Privilege to co... read more »

In one word: Apathetic.WARNING: GRAPHIC ASSAULT AND LANGUAGEThese people are barbaric, and I hope the police don't try to sugarcoat this situation. If the tables were turned, and it was a black man being attacked, beaten, robbed, and then stripped naked, while a bunch of white people stood around and laughed and videotaped it, I'm sure Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, would be all over this story. They would scream about racism, and demand someone be held accountable. So are these attackers racists? Is thi... read more »

Travon Martin, Disenfranchisement, Truth, Recon...

This is merely a suggestion. We have never had a Truth and Reconciliation Process here. If it works in South Africa and Rwanda, why not here? The only strike against us is that it should have been done 100 years ago. Another perfect time would be when the Civil Rights Act (1964) and the Voting Rights Act (1965.) In spite of the best efforts on the right, strongholds of the Democratic Party, like students and minorities, are being disenfranchised now. But I refuse to think it's too late. In fact, it may b... read more »

For Whitey's Eyes Only!

"I'm going to stick to my guns because I think I have the right as a business owner to reject service to anyone," insists Mark Prior of Abbotsford, Wisc. Before he opened his strip club, he posted a sign out front: "No Negro's Allowed". Of course, such discrimination has been illegal for decades (since the Civil Rights Act of 1964), but Prior either doesn't care, or doesn't think the law applies to him. "If I've got a problem with you it's going to be on the front of my store," he says, and he'll defend... read more »

Dr. Laura's Broader Message

Dr. Laura Schlessinger has a large following of listeners for her radio program. Her devoted fans believe she offers advice that is full of tough love and expressions of vivid opinion. To others, she is also an excellent example of the entitlement and arrogance some Americans have, no matter what their personal histories may include. I have a special interest in Dr. Laura because our paths crossed indirectly many years ago. Dr. Laura's on-air use of the n-word recently brought to light once again her bli... read more »

On why they should build it

He told me once that he had become accustomed to running home from the train station in order to avoid not only the racial slurs, but threats and violence, broken bottles, bricks, etc that greeted him when he emerged from the train station. Because his hair was long and his skin was olive, he was a terrorist. He was responsible for the 9-11 tragedy. He and all other Muslims. read more »

On hair

I used the word "mess" on purpose, though I don't think it's a mess (I used to, but the right products can work miracles); if I were to leave New York, my hair would make me a virtual outcast. My professor told me once that New York is unique that way. "You could have a bird's nest on your head. Cats would be like 'nice bird's nest.'" read more »
