Baker’s dozen of the top articles at VASS – political commentary in 2012
The 15th Amendment did not allow freedom to choose within a singular political group. It did not promote ostracizing different views nor demand a unification of action based on race, creed or any other criteria. Blacks, POC’s and all citizens in America have choice. Only when we forget that does the nation suffer, because the best choice for all of America can never be realized when only some of the people are allowed, implicitly or explicitly, to have choice in an election.
Given that the First Lady knows the intentions of the President far better than we do, we would conclude that her interpretation is correct and all else is just political spin for votes. Because if it isn’t, then it’s just hype being sold to Blacks to gain a vote. Which we find to be the real insult.
Long-term readers of this blog and Black Entertainment USA are familiar with our consistent and comprehensive coverage of cases where abuse of justice has been coupled with racial tensions and prejudice. Over the years we have spoken out clearly and loudly about Oscar Grant, Sean Bell, Adolph Grimes, Amadou Diallo, Robbie Tolan and Megan Williams [...]

That people of color are too poor, too lazy, and/or too diminished in thought to either afford, value, or appreciate the need for a photo ID.

Discussions on the national debt ceiling caused President Obama to get on television and frighten seniors with a threatened end to SSI checks (which could [...]
The question of what was done to the title of the hunting camp is valid. If Gov. Perry was shown to be in support of the name and what it represents, then that is newsworthy and a just cause to not vote for him for those that care. But this is not the case.
The problem is, it’s a fabrication. The second part of his statement, the conclusion he comes to, is aribtrarily determined by he is own views. He makes that conclusion, not the Tea Party. He is injecting race into a political debate on the effectiveness of the current President. Which in itself is racist, or at least racial.
If those on the far-left have any question on why so many find their positions obnoxious, and their rhetoric silly, they only have to look to Janeane Garafalo. Oppressors? Racists? An organization that seeks to marginalize people of color, for the sole purpose of advancing an agenda. These are the words of Garafalo. A White [...]
There are a lot of tricks in politics that politicians use to get elected. Some are dirty tricks, some are evasion. When the news media is doing their job, they bring out the truth for the public to see. But when news organizations have a vested interest, the public doesn’t get the truth. They get [...]« Previous Entries
