Nelson Mandela On Life Support (REPORT)


The Right To Die: By Paul Laurence Dunbar



I have no fancy for that ancient cant

That makes us masters of our destinies,

And not our lives, to hold or give them up

As will directs; I cannot, will not think

That men, the subtle worms, who plot and plan

And scheme and calculate with such shrewd wit,

Are such great blund'ring fools as not to know

When they have lived enough.

Men court not death

When there are sweets still left in life to taste.

Nor will a brave man choose to live when he,

Full deeply drunk of life, has reached the dregs,

And knows that now but bitterness remains.

He is the coward who, outfaced in this,

Fears the false goblins of another life.

I honor him who being much harassed

Drinks of sweet courage until drunk of it,--

Then seizing Death, reluctant, by the hand,

Leaps with him, fearless, to eternal peace!

Rachel Jeantel, Trayvon Martin Friend: Teen Was Trying To Escape George Zimmerman


She was 18 when Trayvon was murdered and is only 19 now. Clearly she isn't as astute as some of us would like to think we would be under pressure and testifying. But to her credit she is being truthful and clearly hasn't been coached, for that she is holding her own as much as possible.

Obama On Immigration: Time For Excuses 'Is Over' (VIDEO)


Stop blaming Obama for all the ills in society. It isn't his fault. Blame all those voters, who in 2008 voted for him not because of his ability but out of their emotions. The same way he got the Noble Peace Prize the following year. Now you diehards are reaping the benefits of your emotional vote. Granted 2012 allowed him to come back into office but that vote was for the right thing: he was the lesser of two evils.

Paula Deen Scandal Continues As Employees Tell Rainbow/PUSH Coalition Of Alleged Discrimination


HA!!!! Now run to Rainbow and PUSH. I guess someone wants Al Sharpton and Jackson to protest outside Paula's home. Folks give it a break. I am more concerned about the death rate of blacks by other blacks in gun riddled Chicago.



As for Paula, go on Oprah and be redeemed.

White Men Discuss Their Attraction To Black Women In 'Dark Girls' Documentary (VIDEO)


Interesting. Now if a black man says he exclusively dates white women and gives his reasoning he would be considered a traitor. Different rules for different people.



I like red popsicles and not blue.



It's confusing!

Edward Snowden Leaves Hong Kong For Moscow: Newspaper


If Snowden felt he was in the right, why run? If he felt he was helping the good of mankind, why run? What I don't get is how people feel they have a right to expose confidential or secret information when things don't go their way. Can you imagine the things that would be revealed in the military or courts. You don't have to like the direction of your employer but to come out and reveal sensitive information is WRONG! What if workers in the most sensitive of places revealed personal information about all of us because they disagreed with management?

Paula Deen Defended Southern Attitude Towards Race In Fall 2012 (VIDEO)


Absurd! Paula made the comments then and only now they are coming up for further interpretation. This is sick! And this statement is true: "I think black people feel the same prejudice that white people feel."



Wake the hell up America and have a real discussion about race! All jumped on the bandwagon when then Presidential contender Obama talked about this in March of 2008.

Paula Deen Fired: Food Network Cancels Show After Racism Scandal


Someone has been gunning for Paula for sometime. So what if she made a mistake in her use of words. There is nothing new here. John Mayer and Gwinny Paltrow do it all the time; yet they are embraced. Heck! Rap musician and Pop tarts use the word non-stop and their careers keep flourishing. We can't forget Quentin Tarartino. When will the double standard stop! Black people??
