    Nobody showed the hollow opportunism of Eric Holder's individual claim, and the
    collective claim of the black political class to be champions of justice, equity and civil
    rights more clearly than Rev. Michael Eric Dyson did on a panel discussing the
    outgoing Attorney General last Friday's DemocracyNow show. Unleashing his
    customary wall of words, the fast talking black preacher praised Holder as the “the
    second-most-powerful black person in the history of American politics...” but claimed
    that because they're black neither Holder nor the president could ever be reasonably
    expected to hold the banks to account for crashing the economy. Sure, he allowed
    crooks on Wall Street to get away with stripping trillions in wealth from black families
    through predatory loans and illegal foreclosures and get trillions more from the Fed
    itself. But those were issues “of the white left”, Dyson declared in his opening
    statement less, important to black folks than police brutality, voting rights and just not
    being locked up.

    No ... I'm not mad at you.

    You first had a little bit of the article, then you added more ... too much.

    Rule #11 - Respect People's Property - Include Only a Snippet and Link

    That's what happens when I see folk breaking this rule ... I edit the post ... it aint personal.

    But you do seem angry at this Brother or sump'n ... he seems heavy on your mind.

    Your thread mentions a black class of folk that are "powerful but powerless".

    As if there is a black class of folk ... "powerful and powerful" ... and you're one of 'em.

    I just don't understand why you're so mad at the Brother ... what he do to you?

    :heart:

    It is apparent that you do not read the articles I post, Destee.
    It appears you look at the title, at best read a few sentences.

    Now you wanna, what, psycho-analyze me? Really now...

    Here is what our rules require ... and have required since 2002

    Alternative Number One

    BEFORE adding someone else's property to this site, request their permission.

    INCLUDE that written permission in your post.

    Examples below:

    Slave Profits and The Roots of The Wealth Gap
    Open Letter To President Bush
    How Hip Hop Destroyed Black Power
    Biblical Timeline
    Differences Between The Three Major Religions


    Alternative Number Two

    It is not always easy to contact the owner, and receive their permission in a timely fashion. Therefore, we have provided an alternative to the above. You can include a few sentences of the property, and add a link to where it can be read in its entirety.

    Examples below:

    How Affirmative Action Helped George W. Bush
    Whites Swim In Racial Preference
    The Michigan Case and Affirmative Action
