So, why do liberal Black groups â€“ the NAACP, the National Urban League, and the Congressional Black Caucus â€“ put so much energy in support of homosexual marriage and amnesty for illegals?Â These groups acknowledge the unemployment rate in the Black community is at an epidemic level, but their solution is to increase competition for the few low and unskilled jobs, in which Blacks are disproportionately represented.
African leaders constantly complain about how they are negatively portrayed in the U.S. media, about how Blacks donâ€™t invest in Africa, and about how there seems to be a disconnect between Africans and American Blacks
Current party chair, Reince Priebus has begun to change the makeup of the party by beginning to hire minorities throughout the Republican National Committee (RNC).Â My writings have reflected my support for some of these changes and a continued willingness to work with the party to help it get back on track.
But thatâ€™s something youâ€™ll never read on the Web sites of either The Grio or The Root. Both are White-owned entities masquerading as Black media. When I say White-owned, I am referring to NBC in the case of The Grio and theÂ Washington PostÂ in the case of The Root. It doesnâ€™t get much whiter than that.
As a result of Ohioâ€™s Republican Senator Rob Portmanâ€™s declaration last week that he now supports homosexual marriage, I am once again compelled to ask: Why are Christians and conservatives constantly apologizing for what they believe?
Many minority Republicans have become extremely frustrated with the constant lip service coming from party leaders over the years; they say, â€śweâ€™ve heard all this before.â€ťÂ They are absolutely right; it has been said all before.
To his credit, Jesse Jackson saw beyond the rhetoric and somehow had the ability to see deep inside of Obamaâ€™s soul and tried to warn us, however clumsy, of what we were getting.Â So, Rev. Jackson, again I was wrong and you were right. You saw a level of arrogance and detachment from the Black community that most of us were blinded to â€“ or didnâ€™tÂ wantÂ to see.
I have been extremely critical of President Obama for using the Black community as his personal political pawn. I have been just as critical of the Black communityâ€™s acceptance of that treatment. There are so many other issues I would like to write aboutâ€”Africa, economics, international trade, etc. â€“ but I feel compelled to speak out when there is an injustice being perpetrated against my community, especially from within.
The one thing that stood out with me from his speech was his wanting to increase the federal minimum wage from $ 7.25 an hour to $ 9 an hour.Â With a weak economy, you want to increase the cost of labor?Â Are you kidding me?
Last week, I criticized President Obama for his anemic, voiceless, almost whispered response to the tragic death of Hadiya Pendleton. She was a 15-year-old honor student who was shot and killed in Chicago two weeks ago after having performed at Obamaâ€™s inauguration.
