Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

'The sad fact is that the media do not care about dead black Americans, unless those blacks are murdered by whites.
Never mind the fact that blacks constitute 13.1 percent of the American population but 49 percent of murder victims.
Never mind the fact that black life in the inner cities is plagued not by white people stalking down black kids, but by black kids hunting down other black kids.
Such facts don't forward the leftist narrative that America is a terribly brutal and racist country requiring endless government interventionism to fix.
Such facts don't forward the leftist narrative that white folks, particularly conservative white folks who believe in judging people by the content of their character rather than the color of their skin, are the true threat to black success.
Such facts undercut the liberal agenda of ignoring problems in the black community in favor of cobbling together a coalition of people dedicated to fundamentally changing the system.
The left is committed to changing America in basic ways.
But in order to create enough support for changing the greatest and most tolerant nation ever to grace the planet, the left must portray America as an evil, nasty place. Doing that requires promoting the lie that non-black Americans hate black people, and would dig their old white sheets and burning crosses out of storage if given half a chance. Both the media and the Democratic Party are complicit in that propaganda effort. Building on the fact that America used to be a racist place, and ignoring 50-plus years of American transformation, the left has convinced many Americans, both black and white, that America is a grotesque and monstrous place.
For many Americans, it feels so good to buy into that notion. It provides an easy dose of unearned moral superiority -- "America is racist, but I'm not, because I believe America is racist."
It allows Americans to ignore real and pressing problems in favor of moaning about vague and undefined ones -- "forget about Darryl Green, let's talk about institutional racism."
Most of all, it carries with it an easy and dismissive solution -- "let's turn power over to a chosen few who can fix everything."
Meanwhile, more Darryl Greens will die. So will more Trayvon Martins, given the fact that Martin was the product of a broken home, had a criminal history and a history of fighting, and was caught up in drug culture -- all factors in his death, and all problems the media refuse to talk about. But the media don't care about those deaths.
All they care about is the larger goal: fixing America, one fake racial scandal at a time.
now I can agree with everything you said except for Martin's extracurricular activities having anything to do with his death. Was he gang banging that night? Was he high that night? Was he looking for a fight or, did the fight come to him?

Also, I don't agree with your theory of only leftist bigotry. I'm called a negro everyday in this thread by republicans or, righties. I'm having to explain to do called college grads or wannabe intellectuals about white privilege & racism still thriving in this country but, I do agree with most of what you said. Very well put!

Well if so then good. They will once again be healing people and not in it for the money. Homer suggests the quality of care will improve dramatically.

If Trayvon had been shot for looking at someone the wrong way while in any housing project, it would have not been news at all.

TUCSON, Ariz. A Tucson, Ariz., police officer has been fired after authorities say he pulled a gun on a gas station attendant while off duty and apparently intoxicated.

The Pima County Sheriff's Department notified Tucson police that 23-year-old Kyle James McCartin was arrested early Tuesday on two counts of aggravated assault.

Deputies were called to a Giant Gas Station and learned two men who appeared very intoxicated entered the store wearing bulletproof vests.

Authorities say one of the men pulled out a handgun and pointed it at the clerk twice.

Deputies found the men at a nearby apartment complex and the clerk identified McCartin as the man with the gun.
