Hey Oprah, Have You Seen the Beat Down of a White Kid?
Oprah Winfrey compared the death of Trayvon Martin to the 1955 murder of 14-year-old Emmett Till who while visiting relatives in Mississippi was murdered for reportedly flirting with a white woman. Big tough guys picking on a 14-year-old cannot be compared to Trayvon Martin who bloodied George Zimmerman. After the
Oprah, Trayvon Martin, Emmett Till, and Malcolm X
I suspect that most people who are reading this don’t know anything about Emmett Till. Till was 14 years old when he was set upon by a group of whites and savagely beaten to death. His “crime”? He was flirting with a white girl. In an interview, Oprah said, “In
Shakedown Artist Jesse Jackson Says Boycott Florida — I Say ‘Buycott’
Jesse Jackson appeared on CNN to call for a boycott Florida campaign because of the George Zimmerman acquittal. Instead of boycotting Florida, I’m taking a trip next week for a “buycott.”1 I’m going to help the state as I buy something at the airport, rent a car, buy gasoline, eat
Racialists Are Overplaying their Hand and Turning Allies into Enemies
I can understand (sort of) how some blacks are upset with the result of the George Zimmerman trial. I’ve never lived as a black man. Being black, contrary to what homosexuals argue, is not the same as being a homosexual. Blackness is written on the skin; sexual proclivities aren’t. People
George Zimmerman Should Sue, Sue, Sue
George Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin in self defense. That’s what a six-woman jury determined. Racial politics forced this trial. If you’ve been following the case, you know the story. Here’s a short lesson for all of us to remember: “The first to plead his case seems right, “Until another comes
Did You Know that Republicans, the NRA, and Wal-Mart Are Responsible for the Death of Trayvon Martin?
Thom Hartmann is an American radio host, author, former psychotherapist and entrepreneur, and liberal political commentator. His nationally-syndicated radio show, The Thom Hartmann Program, has 2.75 million listeners a week. Hartmann is the poster child for the 40-year-old advertising campaign “A Mind is a Terrible Thing to Waste.” Looking for
It’s Time for the President to Mind His Own Business On Women and Race
President Obama needs to stick to being the President and stay out of everybody else’s business. As a law professor, he surely knows his limited powers as specified in the Constitution, although his recent comments on judicial review make me wonder. He is not the nation’s policeman. Remember in 2009
How Black Leaders Exploit Their People for Political and Financial Gain
The killing of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman is showing how liberals – especially blacks – care more about getting the political upper hand than affecting long-term change in black communities. Blacks are used as props to raise political capital. The shooting deaths of two British students — James Cooper
Evidence that Freedom of Speech Only Applies to Liberals
The New Black Panther Party is offering a $10,000 bounty for a citizen’s arrest of George Zimmerman. Zimmerman is accused of murdering Trayvon Martin. There have also been death threats against Zimmerman and his family. This is not free speech even though it’s being treated that way. The so-called New Black
Should You Turn the Other Cheek If Someone is Trying to Kill You?
The Trayvon Martin shooting has become a media event. It’s becoming evident that we do not have all the facts and liberals have turned the tragedy into something political. Hashim Nzinga, a high ranking member of the New Black Panther Party, announced on CNN that his group was offering a
How Liberal Democrats Use Tragedies to Divide Americans and Win Elections
The killing of Trayvon Martin is tragic. I suspect, however, that few people know the whole story. This doesn’t matter to Democrats who are using the tragedy to fire up their liberal base, especially among those in the Black community. Even President Obama has gotten involved. “If I had a
