    Black People Politics : McCain To Obama: Welcome Home, Troop Hater

    John McCain is welcoming Barack Obama back to America with a hard right cross. The message of the Republican's new attack ad that debuted Saturday both perfects and makes more harsh a theme that his campaign has been developing for weeks: specifically, that the Illinois Democrat does not care...

    Black People : Lil' Kim & Foxy Brown Renege on Books

    This article stood out to me as someone that has written three books and knows how much time and effort it requires. Some people try for years to land a publishing contract.

    Black People Politics : Jesse's "favor" to Obama?

    Could it be that Jesse Jackson just won the general election for Obama. Nothing brings white voters together like being against Jackson. No amount of bowling, beer drinking or pool playing would give Obama the credibility of having Jesse Jackson taking a bold swipe at him. "The enemy of my...

    Black People Politics : NYT- “Obama New And Not Improved”

    I found this to be very interesting. Senator Barack Obama stirred his legions of supporters, and raised our hopes, promising to change the old order of things. He spoke with passion about breaking out of the partisan mold of bickering and catering to special pleaders, promised to end...

    Yesterday, Grover Norquist — an influential supporter of John McCain — did exactly what Obama predicted would happen, making a not-so-subtle reference to Obama’s skin color: http://thinkprogress.org/2008/06/28/obama-did-i-mention/ This election campaign is headed off of the rails and its...
