Obama Says U.S. Should Take Action In Syria, Will Seek Congress' Authorization For Use Of Force

While many are trying to make the Syria matter political, lets all take a step back and focus on the agreement that many countries (including Syria) signed stating that action should be taken against countries using chemical weapons against its people.

Thank you Christiane Amanpour for having the guts and reporting skills to accurately and clearly explain this to journalists, who are bent on making this entire matter political after months of march the American people to war with stories to scare the masses. If you are going to report the news report all sides truthfully and accurately.

As for the UN, at times they seem to be taking up space on the world stage.

De'Marquise Elkins GUILTY Of Murdering Antonio Santiago, Baby Shot In Stroller

Content of character. Where is it? Where is Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson? It is during crisis like this that Sharpton and Jackson should rally the battle cry of content of character. This would perhaps give them credibility with the masses. Don't just come out when you think a white person has wronged a black person.

I for one am tired of black youths doing wrong and are not admonished by the black community. This is just WRONG!

John Kerry Makes Case For Syria Strike, But Questions Linger

I can't say it enough the US must move cautiously.

The idea that the UK doesn't want to join the US has nothing to do with them not respecting out president, as some would think. I think they were burned severely by the Bush Administration that they want sound proof before stepping out. Can you blame them?

Church Sign Has AMAZING Message For Christian Homophobes (PHOTO)

So all this talk about a man is needed to raise boys should end. After all, who is the man in a lesbian relationship with boys? It takes committed loving adults to raise boys and girls.

Eric Holder Says DOJ Will Let Washington, Colorado Marijuana Laws Go Into Effect

Don't get it twisted. The DOJ isn't going against State's rights (where they have legalized the use of marijuana). This doesn't mean marijuana isn't against the law in other states and until it becomes legal those using it will go to jail. Also remember the DOJ hasn't lessen the penalties for those convicted of using marijuana illegally.

Black Single Mothers Are 'Biggest Impediment' To Progress, Journalist George Will Says (VIDEO)

Now if George Will can make the claim why can't other blacks do the same? I would also add that content of character is another impediment toward progress. The moment blacks realize this and stop playing the victim they will be a powerful force of prosperity and dignity to contend with.

2013 MTV VMAs: Everything Was Black, Except The Winners

Oh gosh! Here we go again with race. The media is in love with race and the seemingly down trodden black race. I find this article to be racist in somewhat aligning the over sexualization of the show and vulgarity of some of the performers as somewhat a black thing?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NAACP Keeping Up Pressure In Trayvon Martin Case

This isn't popular but: I hope the NAACP also keeps pressure on the broken black family and the youths who killed the Australian student and veteran. Horrific crimes! There is a problem and a bit of a double standard. Could those black boys have been the President's sons? I doubt it for he was and is the head of his household.

It is hard for me to sympathize with any of these situations when content of character of those involved is questionable. Yes, George Zimmerman did a bad thing, but under the law of stand your ground (which he did not claim as his defense) he is innocent. He wasn't tried on Civil Right's Violation. Heck! His family even came out and said the killing wasn't racially motivated (this was before the not guilty verdict). We must stop fooling the masses and pretending and really look at the man in the mirror!

NFL Pressure Said to Lead ESPN to Quit Film Project

Football is a contant support. Parents push their sons into the sport at an early age. If you can't deduct from the sport that the contact these gridirons encounter can be dangerous than you are an idiot! The players see and know the risk and if they don't they are dumb jocks!

Let's get real! people watch the sport for the contact and toughness.

It is time black people stop pretending and start addressing the real problem: accountability and content of character. I recently read a great article by LZ Ganderson. I would ask all to Google his name and read this important article for it will provide you with insight you will not hear from the current black leaders (who only come out when the matter is white on black crime).

Nidal Hasan Guilty: Soldier Convicted Of Murder In Fort Hood Shooting

Nidal Hasan is a terrorist and I wish the media would stop with this line of he wants to be put to death to be a martyr. A martyr for whom his fellow terrorist? Who cares what they think! Not putting him to death if in fact the punishment should be only allows the terrorist to dictate punishment and gives them more power. So instead of saying he will be a martyr how about saying he will not be a martyr to those who really count. To those who lost loved ones Nidal Hasan will be just another dead man walking.

Christopher Lane Killing Becomes Race Issue For Conservative Pundits

Don't they know it isn't newsworthy unless it is a white killing a black (so it seems). But trust me this killing will further divide and promote a stereotype of blacks being violate. This will definitely take hold in Australia where blacks are already viewed negatively by some.

Michelle Obama: Black Family In The White House 'Changes The Bar' For Kids

Having a black family in the White House has changed the psyche for many, but still there is a long way to go. Obama and family being seen in such a high profile manner will spark determination for many which is good, but until individuals start considering the content of their character and stop with excuses an Obama in the White House will go only so far.

'Harriet Tubman Sex Tape': Russell Simmons Issues Apology For Controversial Parody

Unbelievable! The content of character is what's at question here. Mr. Russell Simmons was wrong at his attempt to chastise Mr. Don Lemon (a CNN anchor) a few weeks ago, when he admonished young blacks to in essence have respect for themselves. Well, Simmons went into a horrible diatribe against Lemon. Some weeks later look at what the cat has dragged in. Simmons has ZERO credibility. He is profiting off the backs of black people. It is time individuals like Simmons be exposed for what they are enablers of crime and not allowing people to pull themselves up and move forward.

The video posted on his site (and now on youtube) is a slap in the face to all Americans but especially to blacks, the Civil Rights Movement and to women. So sad!

Why We Need to March... Again

I think what is needed is an evaluation of the concept "content of character". You can do all the marching in the world but until that concept is understood marches are meaningless. This is evident in the book by Danielle L. McGuire "At the Dark End of the Street."

In a democracy such as ours with open borders and so much freedom there is a trade-off to stay protected. It is high time this "me generation" and other except and live with it.

Whe wouldn't defend themselves if asked if you are a racist? Man the media loves race baiting. And people commenting and attacking Rocker are falling for the media's games.

Oak Creek Shooting Victim: Obama Did Not Speak To Us (VIDEO)

What? Yet someone else trying to tell a black person (the president at that) how he should be the audience. The media created these monsters.

"He doesn't understand the gravitas of him being elected as a black president and what that means for Neo-Nazi groups and the Klan, which are recruiting heavily from the United States Army. The United States Army is exactly where the person who did this on August 5th came from -- and I do not say his name."

Jane Borock is no better than Ms. Leather. Both women make women look bad. They are the women's movement worse nightmare. If Ms. Borock was going to go all emotional and unhinged she shouldn't have shown up at the Weiner event. What was she hoping to gain? If Weiner is to lose the race let him lose at the polls when the voters (if they) reject him. There was no need for her to lose her dignity. So sad that she has become a pun of the media.

Tawana Brawley Rape Hoax Leads To Defamation Damage Payout 26 Years Later

There is more to this story than the headlines. Apparently, Mr. Pagones is willing to forgo the settlement providing Ms. Brawley issues a mea culpa. What she should do is issue the apology and then sue Al Sharpton and other lame civil rights leaders who were fanning the fire of this heated hoax for using her (a 15 year-old) as a pun to make a name for themselves and put money in their pockets. This is just further proof of how the media will unload a lot of racial garbage on the masses and fooling them only in the end to find out it was all lies.

The Problem In The U.S. Is Economic Mobility, Not The Minimum Wage: Quartz

Best article yet and vey informative. Why don't more of these types of informative articles appear to help people understand what is going on instead of the accusatory articles that seem to promote division? So many news stories last week about fast food workers protesting for higher pay and how bad the fast food industry was. No story breaking down the basics that if these jobs were required to pay a certain amount the jobs would cease to exist. Besides these jobs were created for people to get rich. If you have a family and trying to use the job to support them and can't then it is time to get another job and more skills to move on.

How much longer will the public survive on the selective information diet of the media? It is time to protest against the media!

Hillary Clinton's 1992 Wellesley Commencement Speech Tackles Issues Relevant Decades Later

Mrs. Clinton spoke about these same issues in 2008 when she ran for president. Prior to then Senator Obama entering the race many thought she was a shoe in. Once he entered the race Mrs. Clinton's her credibility became questionable. She and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, were even labeled as possible racist, by many in the media who didn't want her to run for office. Here message never changed but the focus on her being the president changed with the media.

Now that President Obama is in and for a second term and the media (not the people or voters as much) see how it is with a black man at the top (short term things really haven't changed all that much) now they are ready to refocus on Mrs. Clinton as president and savior until the next flavor of the month comes along and she loses favor.

The media seems to bambozzle the American public every time there is an election or on social issues it deems important. The public must do a better job policing the media.

Bradley Manning Sentencing Testimony Suggests WikiLeaks Not Responsible For Any Deaths

Please let's be realistic and stop trying to dress this breach of security and major espionage up to make it pretty. Common sense should dictate. Injury victims win law suits because of the longterm consequences the injury could cause in the future. While Manning's reckless actions may not be responsible for any deaths in the short term who knows the longterm damage his recklessness will have on our country. Manning is an enemy of the state and will and should be dealt with accordingly. He is no hero. A hero is Michelle Knight and the other young women who suffered at the hands of a monster. Don't get it twisted.

Don's a Lemon: Before You Go Back on CNN This Weekend, Read This!

Russell Simmons is so wrong! His political director Michael Skolnik, a pun of sorts, is no better. While Russell is living high on the hog young black men are killed at the hands of other blacks on a daily basis (quiet as it is kept). How often are black men killed at the hands of a white person. Why not look at the root cause of the problem. Why not have a symposium on nothing but this: Content of character? Content of Character the way MLK saw it.

Wearing saggy pants isn't out of frustration. Speaking slang isn't out of frustration. Ask any black youth why they do either and the answer would not be frustration. Please don't compare the frustration of the 60's or 70's to today's issues. Teens today barely know what the struggle of the past was about let alone any struggle of today. Why? Because they don't know their history. Secondly, many of them aren't in school long enough to know history.

Let's stop blaming the "man" and being the victim. Stop with the excuses and see the real problem. Only then can we move forward and onward. Talk that some don't want to address or talk.
