So where on earth were all the rich blacks? Why didn't they load their plans with food, water, and the other badly need provisions, send the cargo to New Orleans to drop, and maybe save some lives? For what flowers cost a week for some of these millionaires could have paid for a plane loaded water for the desperate, thirsty people at the Super dome and Convention Center. Why didn't the rich blacks charter boats, barges, canoes, or whatever necessary to help? They certainly could afford to. Just imagine what plans filled with provisions sent by most, if not all of the rich black could have accomplished.
Say in a fantasy world, the black millionaires would have turned on their televisions sets, and was so affected seeing the dire suffering of people from backgrounds such as theirs, that the rich blacks acted. Maybe not bought another $600 bottle of wine, another $1000 sheet set, $10,000 a night hotel room, another $35,000 worth of flowers, another $3,000,000 ring, or another million dollar gold plated bathroom in a multimillion dollar mansion. Instead of buying that stuff, bought warehouses full of soup, water, any non perishable foods, or just plain toilet paper. Arranged to have it distributed among the Katrina victims trapped in New Orleans. There would have been little need for the Government to respond. (Please don't get me wrong, the Government should and must respond any and all times its' citzens are in great need, especially when there are disasters on any size scale).
Most rich blacks today came out of conditions similar to the conditions the Katrina victims lived in. So the rich Negroes know what it means not to have the means to flee a disaster. Yet they did nothing to alleviate the suffering of those poor folks. They were to busying buying millions of dollars worth of diamonds from Africa, not giving a second thought to all the Africans who limbs were chopped off, even children, so that they could not steal that particular rock that a flashy black millionaire displays. No compassion for the thousands of South Africans Blacks buried alive in the gold mines, so that the rich blacks a world away can one-up one another with biggest gold chains.
No these rich brotherz and sistaz do little to help others who share their ethnicity. They, the rich, would rather make people from Europe richer, paying millions of dollars for gold and diamonds that Africans were paid three dollars to mine. To say nothing of the dangers the Africans face in mining the gold and diamonds.
With all that I have said here, I sincerely hope that this blog entry gets the attention of at least one of the millionaire subjects I talked about in this entry. Maybe next time there's a disaster that effects mostly their own kind, they will step up, lead, and give less fortunate black people bragging rights, and more real heroes.

It must be very hard to walk in a gay Repubilicans' shoes. Thanks to Karl Rove's obsession with making George Bush President, putting morals values at the forefront was a way to achieve that obsession. Stamping out gay rights was a most powerful weapon in their quest for power. Rove and Bush has made it almost impossible for their partys' politicians to be anything but Bible quoting, justifying, anti gay robots.
Before Bush was selected President, hardly anyone in the country gave a second thought to gays getting married. Bush and Rove needed an issue for so-called values voters. So they put gay marriage on the ballots of many states in 2004 which drew many of these voters to the polls. People who might not otherwise vote. (and evidently did not realized they were being played).
Rove and Bush had their cronies in Congress put forth congressional bills for gays rights on the floor for votes. So gay Republicans had to vote against gay rights and be hypocrites. These closeted gays were the ones making the loudest most anti-gay speechs during these votes. They were also be the people who would make the most hate filled, memorable speakers. Sen. Larry Craig, for example.
The people who mostly makeup the Republican party are mostly anti gay voters, who would never vote for any gay to represent them. So gay Republican seeking office have to hide their true sexuality. These gay Republicans probably have all the views of the conservative agenda, yet as openly gays they could never be sent to Washington as Republicans. This goes double for the older generation from the ruby red states. So a number of these men marry women to keep up appearances. They have to sneak around to be true to their sexuality. Cruising places such as airport bathrooms. This must be a lonely hellish life. I feel for Sen.Craig. He was forced to vote against every right that he, if was living as openly gay man, could have cherished.
Sen. Vitter phone number was found in client list of a she-pimp, and no Republicans were in the media calling for Vitter to resign his senate seat. They said was because Craig plead guilty to a crime, and Vitter never admitted to law breaking. I say the Repubilicans only get upset when Democrats cheat on their wives.(Bill and Monica) They gave Vitter the atta-a-boy. Craig got the you are outta-here-boy.

I know most of his supporters are blacks. I also understand that blacks in general don't trust law enforcement. And it's a well deserved distrust of the legal system. But please, Jefferson is guilty. He's not some under privileged black picked up by the cops, prosecuted because he's black, and any black will do guilty or not. Jefferson is a very privileged Congressman. He's a high ranking member of our government. He's not being railroaded, he had not one reason to take a bribe. He did it because he's greedy.
Black people had better wise up, and see these so-called victims for what they are: Self absorbed crooks, who think they deserve to get away with breaking the law. They view themselves above the law. They live by their own rules, therefore they don't need to respect society rules. They use the fact that black people have historically been victims of the law enforcement using the system to keep blacks in their place. William Jefferson does not fit in that category.
William Jefferson used his office to line his pockets. He was caught with $90,000 in his freezer. Why if he had the money legit would he freeze it? Why not bank it? He was hiding the money. Hoping his freezer would not be searched. He underestimated the FBI's tunnel vision. The FBI wanted to catch a big fish, Jefferson was the catch of day rightly so. I hope that black peopole will come to their senses, and see that he is out for himself. He didn't take the money to help out his poor constituency. He is not worthy of their support. He is just a plain old greedy crook.

Byrd joined the kkk in 1942. He was a "kleagle". A person who recruited members for the barbaric brutal racist organization. He recruited over 150 friends and associates, and they started a local chapter of the klan. The new recruits were charged a $10 joining fee and $3 for the hood and robe. As kleagle Byrd collected the fees.
Byrd said he joined the brutal racist organization because of its strong stance against communism. Even Though in 1943 the Soviet Union and America were Allys against Germany. In fact President Roosevelt was still calling Stalin Uncle Joe. Byrd's reason for his klan involvement does not pass the common sense test.
We can only guess the number of black that have beaten to death, hung to death, burned to death, and drowned to death by Byrd's barbaric brotherhood, the kkk. The number is certainly in the thousands. From early last century to well into the 1960s black were frequently terrorized by the klan. Black people were murdered just for sport. For entertainment after Sunday Church services. Klansman Byrd was a part of the barbaric uncivilized lynchings.In a letter Byrd wrote December of 1945 to notorious segregationist Mississippi democratic Senator Theodor Bilbo, Byrd complained about President Truman's efforts to try and integrate the military. Byrd wrote "A negro by my side, rather I should die a thousands times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again than see this beloved land degraded by mongrels".
In a 1946 letter (after Byrd claimed he had lost interest in the kkk) he wrote "the klan is needed today as never before. I am anxious to see the klan rebuilt in West Virgina."
In 1965 Byrd filibustered for fourteen hours to stop passage of President Johnson's Civil Rights Act. In 1967 Byrd voted against the nomination of Thurgood Marshall to be America's first black Supreme Court Justice. And as everyone knows in the year 2004 Byrd called lower class whites "whte niggers"
I must say that any living being weather human or animal should be treated humanely. Dogs shouldn't forced to fight to the death and killed in horrible ways such as hangings, electrocutions, or drownings. Females dogs shouldn't rape, and forced to breed. Their pups shouldn't be taken away. This goes for black human beings as well.
So I take all this outrage of Micheal Vick's treatment of dogs coming from Byrd for what it's worth. Byrd stood up for the barbaric racist who lynched so many black human beings. Micheal Vick should be punish for his crimes against animals. Byrd should also be punish for his crimes against humans. Now he is all morally outraged about the treatment of dogs. Well, maybe he is just outraged about the white dogs.

Passing the 9/11 commission recommendations. Passing the first minimum wage raise in 10 years. Passing legislation for stem cell research. Revamping pell grants so low income students can compete. Getting the interest rates for student loans lowered in half. So that students won't be saddled with high interest loans long after completing college. Earmark reform, which requires house members to publicly acknowledge specials projects they are seeking. Pay-as-you-go budgeting, which requires spending increases to be offset with revenue enhancements or budget cuts. Clean air act which repeals tax cuts for big oil companies and, to create a pool fund for renewable energy initiatives. Permit medicare to negotiate with drug companies to potentially lower prices to program participants. Ethics and lobbying reform. These are some of the bills the Democrats in the house have to passed. Of course President vetoed stem cell research.
And there are things the Democrats have not done. The have not gotten a timeline for getting the troops out of Iraq. They have not reeled the President on domestic wiretapping. They can't seem to get truth on firings of the 8 U.S. attorneys. Congress can't seem to get together on immigration. And they won't impeach Bush.
The public is down on the Democratic Congress. Maybe congress had better start paying closer attention to their true employers. The citizens of the United States. But maybe the public should be more accommodating also. After all the Democrats don't have a veto proof majority, and hardly any help from the Republicans in Congress. The Democrats must stop beimg afraid to stand up to Bush. If they would call Bush's bluff, and take him on they would see he's not such tough guy. After all he walked away from the chance he had to fight, he skipped Viet Nam.

Over 500 years ago the Christians used the same reasoning to seize a very large parcel of land between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. By any means necessary, the genocide of millions of natives in a bloodthirsty orgy of extinction on a massive scale. The victims of this version of the Christians carrying out this version will of their God were the American Indians. Manifest Destiny, the territorial seizing of Native American land, because the land is obvious (Manifest) and certain (Destiny) to the white Anglo Saxon by their God.
Once the conquerors laid eyes on this plush resource rich land: The Native Americans didn't stand a chance. Not because it was willed by God. Just plain and simple human greed. The murdering conquerors had to have the land. The only will they were putting in place was the will of the invaders. Not to better the lives of the native people, or to teach them the true ways of God , but to murder, rape, rob, and most of all brainwash the people into submission. Those who resisted were labeled savages. And very rapidly put in their place.
In the 18th , 19th, and 20th century. The Christians carried on to fulfill their God's will as the destined chosen ones, they did it in Asia, Africa, Australia, New Zealand, oh... to many places to name. Lets just say, the entire world. They did their God's will always in the most perverse violent ways. The chosen felt nothing for the people who originally occupied these lands. Because their God sent his Christians to civilize, and assimilate all the Black and Brown People of the earth. The Christians had their God given right to take the native peoples land and do with it as they wanted. After all, white Christians were destined to save and rule over the earth.
Today the Christians carry on. They supply the Jews with all the high tech weapons that the Jews need to destroy the Palestinian people. In God's name of course. They praise the Jews as they treat the Palestinians as second class citizens. The Christians cheer the Jews on when they bulldoze the homes of the Palestinians. Leaving untold numbers of them homeless, desperate, and living in the streets. The Christians say it's good when the Jews imprison thousands of Palestinians men leaving mothers to care for countless children alone. The Christians watch and say nothing as the Jews bomb Lebanon to dust, a country which is modern, and leaning pro western when it was bombed, maybe no more. Yes the Christians and Jews say ..er.. believe they are doing all this the name of their God.
Ask yourselves this question, why is there no mentioned of the Americas in the Bible? If the "New World" is the land God granted fair skinned Christian to rule over the Earth from, I am thinking, then surly God would mentioned this land and it's original people in his written word? It's a simple answer, the Americas are not mentioned in the Bible because God didn't write the Bible. Humans wrote it, and the Americas was not included in it, because the humans who wrote the Bible did not know America existed at the time they wrote the Bible. The Bible was written before Columbus sailed, got lost, and stumbled upon the American shores.
I am a true believer, I know God is. My belief in God's existence is total. The only explanation for the universe, and most of all, all the life that lives in the universe Is God. There is a Creator, there is a God. Either we humans were created through evolution, or molded from dust with Gods' bare hands. The method does not matter. The universe and all nature's magic was made by God. I can't, however, believe in their version of God. The God they tell me to believe in is a God who sees me, and all dark people as less than our light Europeans counterparts. I am much to proud and conceited to ever think that.

Here are a few ways the Clintons helped blacks. While running in 1992, candidate Bill Clinton left the campaign trail to personally sign the death warrant, and oversee the execution of Ricky Ray Rector, a young black man in Arkansas. Rector was sentenced to death for killing a police officer in 1981. Rector shot himself in the head after killing the officer, and became retarded with an IQ of around 70. Before being put to death Rector asked if he could save his dessert until after his execution.
And then there's Haiti. Candidate Clinton promised political refuge for Haitians fleeing their poor country. This was a promise President Clinton had no intentions of keeping. The day after taking office he revoked that campaign promise. President Clinton said the reason for breaking his promise was that there were to many new blacks coming into the U.S. from Haiti.
Bill Clinton also helped blacks with the 1994 crime bill. Which took money from education to build hundreds of new prisons. Clinton helped with the three strikes law. Now there are many people across this country severing life for stealing candy bars. This statement is not to imply blacks commit more crimes than other groups, but to say that blacks more likely to be convicted of crimes. And please, let's not forget the differences in the sentencing penalties of power verses crack cocaine. Power cocaine users, mostly whites, get sentenced to rehab. Crack cocaine, precieved to be possessed mostly by blacks, get sentenced up to life in prison. A stroke of a pen by Bill Clinton could have changed that stupid difference in sentencing.
And of course there's Rwanda. This is the saddest of all help Clinton gave blacks here and in Africa. Over 800,000 slaughtered in a few months in 1994. While the "first black President" watched, and did nothing to stop the bloodbath. Of course he was up for re-election in '96, and I am sure he did not want to anything that might hurt his chances (say,.. like maybe stop the mass killings of black people) He did later send troops to Yugoslavia (which was the right thing to do).
And now Hillary Clinton is being very helpful by calling the only black man whose ever had a decent chance of being elected President "naive and irresponsible". I am sure Hillary only said these things out of concern for the safety and security of the country. It's only a coincidence that this particular black man is the biggest threat to her becoming the party's nominee for President in '08. She's not just playing into some of the country prejudices, and stereotypes that black people are "naive and irresponsible".
This is just a sample of what the Clintons did to help black people. Not only in America but around the world.

Hillary thinks it's her birth right to be President. She does not care about the country. Nor does her Husband. They will do anything for power, that's why Hillary voted for the war. She didn't give second thought to the lives that would be lost, even if the war had gone well for the U.S. military. She didn't read the prewar report. She didn't have the long term vision to plan for a bad outcome. She like Bush assumed the U.S. would have an easy victory. And now she doesn't have the character to admit she was wrong.
Democrats, why do you want her? I am especially talking to black Democrats. She is going to stab you in the back. Just like her man did. If you black people want Hillary simply because she is Bill's wife, you are as dumb as she seems to think you are. She will tell everything you want to hear, but if she is elected see how many of your black asses are invited to sleep in Lincoln's bed. Or taken for a ride on Air Force One.
I call this entry a American Tragedy, because it's tragic that black people are so easily fooled, and by not so smart people. After all she was not smart enough, or strong enough to vote against the most tragic foreign policy failure in half century. The invasion and occupation of Iraq.

He says, according to the Washington Post, he wants to relax and spend more time with his family, his son who's in college there. And of course he will write a book, and make millions in speaking fees. I say surly all the widowed families of the Americans and Iraqis killed in this war would love to do the same. Relax and spend time with their deceased loved ones. Did I say he served his country well? I should have said he served his "God" well. George W. Bush. From the files of the Master himself, Keith Olbermann. Karl Rove, the worst person in the world.

Barack is Harvard educated intellectual, he could have went to work anywhere, yet he started his career on the south side of Chicago as community organizer for black churches. He was a civil rights attorney. He has worked very hard to help ex-felons get reincorporated in the community. And as we know most ex-felons are black and brown. He could have married any blond, yet he married his equal, the Harvard educated ebony Michelle. They could have lived in any affluent neighborhood, yet he and Michelle chose to raise their children in Chicago's south side. So what's the criteria of a persons' blackness? If Barack had not received a Ivy League education, would this make him black enough? Does the idea that he prefers arugula lettuce over iceberg have a bearing on his black credentials? Or in the case of my daughter who was recently told because she had never watched the 70's black television sitcom "Good Times" she was not black.
I hope that black Americans see this phony controversy for what it is. A load of crap. I especially hope that the black youth take heed of this. Everyone who is born in this country with black African heritage is "black enough". Whether a successful well educated senator running for President, or a high school dropout down on his luck. If one's roots began in Africa, then one's being black enough is not in question. Complexions don't matter. Bloodlines do. So who sets the rules for one being black enough in America? The answer to this question is: the heritage the of at least one of two people who conceived the offspring in question. Yes, Barack is black, inside and out.

Now that the media has finally did it's primary job, and investigated Hillary statements saying that nuclear weapons were off the table, and that America should unilaterally go into countries to hunt for terrorists. The right wingers pundits, and the media in general have been quiet about her making those statements. By the way, why have former Presidents G.H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton gotten so close? Hum... stay tuned.
