(video) MSNBC's Chris Matthews: "He is post-racial by all appearances. You know, I forgot he was black tonight for an hour. You know, he's gone a long way to become a leader of this country and passed so much history in just a year or two."
Use of the word Negro to describe a black person has largely fallen out of polite conversation — except on the U.S. Census questionnaire. There, under "What is this person's race?" is an option that reads, "Black, African Am., or Negro." That has rai
When Joz Wang and her brother bought their mom a Nikon Coolpix S630 digital camera for Mother's Day last year, they discovered what seemed to be a malfunction. Every time they took a portrait of each other smiling, a message flashed across the screen
Grab your children and teach them the real history of MLK and not the watered down politically correct stuff they learn in school these days. We remind people how effective mass civil disobedience is and examine Martin Luther King's Strategy. We r

But there was another woman, named Claudette Colvin, who refused to be treated like a substandard citizen on one of those Montgomery buses — and she did it nine months before Rosa Parks. Martin Luther King made his political debut fighting her case.

Once again, major violence between Raza and African prisoners has erupted within the United States Concentration Camp (Prison) System, this time at Chino California State Prison. Beginning at 8:20 on Saturday evening, Aug. 8, African and Raza (Latino) prisoners, in the most brutal fashion, slashing, cutting, hitting each other with anything that could get their hands on, battled for more than 11 hours. Over 200 were hurt, several critically, with severe head injuries or stab wounds. Blood was spilled everywhere. Many of those involved will be scarred and maimed for life, both physically and mentally.

Do the noisy protests directed at President Barack Obama's health care plan reveal something uniquely sinister about the American right? A surprising number of liberal pundits seem to think so. "Let's be honest with ourselves," progressive blogger Josh Marshall declared, "the American right has a deep-seated problem with political violence....The ideological pattern is clear going back at least thirty years and arguably far longer."

It is a backlash against social liberalism and it's rooted in libertarian support for unregulated capitalism and white people holding onto power, and, if they see themselves losing it, trying to get it back." Now, it's certainly true that the United States has
Last week I wrote a spirited article about an encounter with senior citizens. It was a lively piece since these octogenarians were once staunch Obama supporters. They pulled no punches and had some hard questions with both the Democratic and Republican Parties. In any event these survivors of the last Depression had both eyes on the road, their hands on the wheel and were of most ethnic groups other than celestial, I think. In any event it was an honest slice of Americana and they did not mince words nor sugarcoat their opinions. Harmless enough eh, just another news story that will not see much daylight from the mainstream. I’m used to getting mail from people who do not share my opinion and that is a good thing since they have an opinion of their own. After all it’s a free country, right? Some are more spirited than others and that’s how it goes. But never before had I received such vial and contemptuous hate mail as I did from Obama hardliners. They showed me that if you don’t sh
One very good reason. He was the first political leader to challenge slavery effectively. As an institution, slavery was then as old as Western civilization, and one that had already invaded this brand new colony.
President Obama said police in Cambridge, MA, "acted stupidly" in arresting a prominent black Harvard professor after a confrontation at the man's home.
"I don't know, not having been there and not seeing all the facts, what role race played," [but I'll comment on it anyway] Obama said while taking questions after a White House news conference.
Cambridge authorities dropped disorderly conduct charges against Henry Louis Gates Jr. on Tuesday.
