50 Years Later: Impressions of Selma


50 years later...the first Black president crosses the Edmund Pettus Bridge.

When President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama stepped down from Air Force One in Selma, Alabama this weekend, it represented a full circle moment.  From the cotton fields to the Oval Office.

Hmmm, Which Turkey Do We Pardon?

Elizabeth-Lauten-cyber-bullies-presidents-daughtersThe White House turkey was not the only turkey needing pardoning this weekend.  Elizabeth Lauten, the communications director for U.S. Rep. Stephen Fincher, found her neck on the chopping block for cyber bullying President Barack Obama’s daughters after the turkey pardoning ceremony at the White House on November 26, 2014.

The respect Elizabeth Lauten wishes Sasha and Malia, the president’s daughters, had shown for the sanctity of the White House is the same ordinary respect she should have shown for Sasha and Malia and their parents as living, breathing, feeling, ordinary human beings.

Because of racial inequality in this country, Elizabeth Lauten, a communications director (and many others like her who are less than communications directors), take regular, persistent, and unwarranted liberties with every aspect of Black Life.

The overwhelming disrespect President Barack Obama, this president in particular, has suffered is a direct result of this country having little or no respect for Black Life and is evidenced when the Elizabeth Lautens, whether she has three teeth in her head or a full set, open their mouths and show how black and foul their hearts are.

STILL President of the United States of America!

President Barack Obama re-elected in the 2012 presidential election.

A decisive victory for Democrats! A decisive victory for the United States of America, the world, AND Big Bird!

Congratulations to the Democratic and Republican winners of this 2012 election season. Now, it is time to get to work!  God bless the President of the United States of America!  And God bless America!  The people of the United States have spoken. Finally!

Cuyahoga County Board of Elections

Crowds gathering for early voting in Cleveland, Ohio today.

After a night of extended “wine tasting,” groggy and a little hung-over, I decided to take advantage of the extended early voting hours at the Board of Elections in Cleveland, Ohio.  I did not go willingly.

The Obama Effect

The Obama Effect

Ahh, yes, love is in the air!

During a visit Tuesday at the Daughters of Zion Jr. Academy in Delray Beach, Florida, President Barack Obama gets upstaged by a young Romeo.

No kiss-cam needed for this kiddie coupling.

Whether THEY Say So or Not

President Obama wins third and final presidential debate.The saddest thing to be learned about the 2012 Presidential Debate season is how soon people are willing to dismiss or completely ignore the accomplishments of the president.  

My What Big Teeth You Have!

Joe Biden wins 2012 Vice Presidential Debate with bite!

The Republican Party and their sympathizers are so desperate for their uninspiring candidates to win, they are, time and time again, choosing to completely ignore substance.  If Mitt Romney is rude, overly aggressive, and obnoxious to the host and Big Bird, it is lauded as “being Presidential.”  Now that their candidate has lost the Vice Presidential Debate of 2012, desperation dictates that the Republican focus turn to facial expressions.

Right At The Door

Presdient Obama addresses the nation.

Could the rapture occur during the time of Obama?

As if I am a voyeur, I see a tall black man standing in my uncle’s backyard.  (My deceased uncle’s name is Matthew).  The man is standing under a large tree (an oak or sycamore, though no mottling on trunk) and he is dressed in a brightly colored suit (either primary blue or purple).  The sun is shining.  It is obviously spring or summer, given the color of the suit.  Suddenly there is an abrupt change in the weather.  It begins to snow.

The scene changes . . .
