Sex has gone from being private to public. Put simply, one's sexuality can confer social validation. Entire industries now spin on an axis of homosexual activism (think gay marriage movement). Being gay is an identity, and, like blackness or feminism, identity activism is sewn so deeply into our culture now, that we rarely consider the consequences of pouring so much energy into publicizing and popularizing sexual lifestyles.
The laundry list of "persistent problems;" single parenthood, teen pregnancy, the dropout rate, rising welfare dependence, crime and the misery they produce, are all the effects of and are reinforced by the very worldview that Harris-Perry and her father subscribe to. If it's fixed, Liberals have to find a way to break it. They simply don't know how to mind their own business.
Trayvon Martin is a household name for all the wrong reasons.
On February 26, while reportedly returning from a corner store, the 17-year-old Martin — who was visiting his father — got into an altercation with self-appointed neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman. Zimmerman, who pursued Martin against the warnings of a 911 operator, shot and killed Martin in what he claims was self-defense.
Martin’s shooting created an international firestorm because Zimmerman, the apparent aggressor, was never taken into custody or charged with a crime. What is making things worse is that Martin is black, Zimmerman is Hispanic and the now-former police chief of Sanford, Florida — where Martin’s death occurred — is white.

Last summer the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) passed a resolution condemning what it called “extremist elements within the Tea Party.” Stunningly, the national NAACP has never questioned the extreme practice of race-based abortions.
When given the chance to support a bill that would end the practice of race-based and gender-based abortions in the United States, the NAACP passed on the honor. In fact, it protested the bill.

Thank you, Politico, for dragging our already divided and depressed nation back to the “high-tech lynching” days of Justice Clarence Thomas’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings.
Sadly, Herman Cain is just the latest “uppity negro,” as Justice Thomas put it, to break the Eleventh Commandment: Cain dared to speak his mind, and because his message is anathema to the orthodoxy pervasive among liberal blacks, he is being bludgeoned.

President Obama is an OPM addict. Our commander-in-chief is addicted to spending “other people’s money.” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D.-Nev.) is his pusher. The establishment media are his enablers.
Consider what’s happening in Washington right now with the debt crisis.
"Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act."
In an alternate reality, 54 million blacks would be alive in America today. When adjusted for abortion, the number is 39 million.
The National Black Prolife Coalition says an average of 1,000 black babies are aborted every day. Nationally, nearly one in three black pregnancies ends in abortion each year. In New York City in 2009, 47%, or 40,798, of the city’s 87,273 abortions were performed on black women.
This led Alveda King, Martin Luther King Jr.’s niece, to declare that, “The most dangerous place for an African-American is in the womb!”
While the pundits try to figure out whether Obama’s decision to kill Osama bin Laden will benefit him politically, the average American—after some celebration—is really fixated on the economy.
Unemployment still hovers around 9%. Home values are still down, and the dollar is in a nosedive. Food and gas prices are soaring, and one in seven Americans receives food stamps.
Is this how we “win the future”?
Perhaps, but it’s hard to fathom.
Americans for Prosperity is here in Cancun as leaders from 192 countries and some 400 environmental organizations have found time in their busy schedules to board their private jets, and have flown thousands of miles to attend the 16th United Nations Climate Change Conference to discuss global warming.
Now in case you haven’t heard, the Earth’s temperature is rising and is getting hotter (faster than Barney Frank getting a full body cavity search) and only these leaders, most of them governing countries with failing economies myriad in mind boggling debt, can save it.
Boy, this has been a crazy couple of weeks, from border law protests from Arizona to Washington D.C, to a near fatal terrorist attack in Times Square, to a “methane triggered” oil rig blast on the Gulf of Mexico.
The mainstream media has had its hands full keeping up with the current events and reporting on them accurately……cough…cough.
You know it’s funny, the national media that took and ran with allegations of Tea Party protesters spitting on Congressmen is the same national media empathizing with the alleged attempted ‘Times Square bomber.” And again, ironically of course, the very same dinosaur media that made two weeks worth of news out of alleged racial slurs hurled at lawmakers during health care protest rallies, conveniently forgot to make such hay about the actual cases of vandalism and violence from Santa Cruz, California to Asheville, North Carolina brought on by Arizona immigration law protesters.
It’s so weird.
But given the other three examples (with some individual exceptions) are we to really expect accuracy and honesty form the so-called “forth branch of government?” Yeah, I didn’t think so!
Can someone explain to me why we have to sit and watch the Arizona illegal immigration debate and its narrative be steered by sports team executives and civil rights leaders?
Don’t get me wrong, I loved the Los-- I mean-- Phoenix Suns but I think I am going to have to side with Phil Jackson on this one: “If I heard right, it’s that the American people are for stronger immigration laws if I’m not mistaken. Where we stand as a basketball team, we should let that play out, let the political end of that go where it’s going to go.” In other words, (in my best Forrest Gump voice) “I am a basketball coach and that’s all I have to say about that.
And while we are on the subject of the Arizona illegal immigration reform act, what is the all the fuss about anyway? And why do we need civil rights victimhood vendors Sharpton and Jackson leading marches? I mean, considering the stellar job the federal government has done these last two decades, what is so wrong about Arizona securing its on boarders? Now I know what you are going to say but here’s a novel idea; the federal government should enforce existing immigration laws–laws that mirror the recently passed Arizona immigration bill. That said, hats off to Governor Brewer, the Arizona state legislature and the respective law enforcement agencies of the Grand Canyon State. On behalf of all sane, law abiding, taxpaying, common-sense, Americans, thank you for taking responsibility and doing what you were hired and elected by the people to do, in securing the economic and physical well being of your citizenry.
Now, to the mainstream media, Mr. Sharpton, Jackson, Congressman Gutierrez and an innumerable many other public figures who believe or defend the notion that the Arizona immigration law and to an even further extent, that there is a racist at the heart of all white people and the system is unfair and rigged for minorities to fail and for these and many other reasons, those who knowingly break American laws should not be arrested, prosecuted or deported–please wake up and smell the coffee.
Or please, for the love of Pete, report on the fact that Chicago lawmakers, like Arizona, are calling for the National Guard to help secure the economic and physical safety of its citizenry.
Yes, that’s right, you don’t see Mr. Sharpton and Jackson holding press conferences, airing on CNN, MSNBC, ABC and the likes about the gang-related violence, murders, and crimes that are beyond out of control in the streets of Chicago. Sadly protesting a law that makes what is already a federal crime a state crime is more financially profitable and politically beneficial.
While Phoenix is now the “kidnap capital of America,” Chicago is the 8th most murderous city in the country (2009), with murder rates in the first four months of 2010 putting the number one spot well within reach.
CNN reports that during the 2007-2008 school year, at least 20 students were killed, including 18 by gunfire. The year before, more than 30 students were killed, again mostly by gun violence and so far in 2010 there have been 36 murders.
Where are the unions or Shapton’s Nation Action Network or Jackson’s Rainbow Push Coalition or better yet, President Obama at on the weekly murders in his neck of the woods?
They are not coming folks because they are all too busy emphasizing with terrorists and illegal aliens, keeping that “boot” on the neck of British Petroleum, yukking it up at press dinners and working on their golf swing.
And on that note I would like to wish every mom and mother to be a happy Mothers Day. You are truly God's gift to the world.
