For those that feel that racism no longer exists in America.

A young man went to ‘Journey’s’ (shoe store) in Kansas City, MO. He bought a pair of shoes and then saw an identical pair at a different store for less. As such, he bought the identical shoes from the cheaper store and took back the original more pricey pair to Journey’s. Later on that night, as we has reviewing the receipt, he noticed that the reason for the return was ‘Dumb Nigger’. When he took the receipt back to the store, they didn’t even apologize but did admit that said ‘reason’ was in the system

Please take the time to see “Earthlings”.

As we contemplate our future while discussing the merits of differing fuel sources, let’s also discuss how we treat the least among us, the animals we live with.  This is a very disturbing, but extremely important documentary.

I watched this 80 minute documentary last night and had difficulty going to sleep.  The images were too striking for me to dismiss as isolated events.  Understand that what is presented here is just the trailer.  I’ve read that the video is on Google Videos.  I haven’t checked so I don’t know for sure.

If you are strong enough to watch this video in its entirety, take the time to talk about it to the people in your life that you care about.

I apologize if you’ve already seen this, but…

I felt that you needed to see it again.  If for no other reason, the reasons outlined in the video should be enough to bring our troops home where they belong.

Genocide in Sudan continues daily.

A college student shot by Sudanese security forces because the color of his hair and skin resembled that of Darfuri rebels.

Paramilitary and security forces going from house to house, arresting men and boys, throwing them in trucks and speedingthem off to unknown destinations.

These are fragments of daily life in Sudan. This is more than a crime scene. This is genocide.

We cannot stand idly by as genocide continues. Nearly a year has passed since the U.N. resolved to send peacekeepers to Darfur - we need your support to make sure they don’t forget their promise.

We have only 5 days left to raise $200,000. Please make a secure online donation today.
https://donate.savedarfur.org/08/protect_darfur/nydMjcwpqHjqJ?

There are hopeful signs, and your activism has made a profound difference. The recent joint statement on Darfur from Senators Clinton, McCain and Obama was historic - the first time since World War II that presidential rivals have come together on a foreign policy issue.

But the people of Darfur shouldn’t have to weather seven more months of unspeakable atrocities until a new U.S. president takes office. We will continue to demand accountability from the current president, from those who want to be president, and from everyone with the power to address this humanitarian crisis.

But we can’t do any of that without your support.

We are still $165,000 away from our $200,000 goal for this critical campaign. Send a gift before the end of the month and help chart the path to peace for Darfur.
https://donate.savedarfur.org/08/protect_darfur/nydMjcwpqHjqJ?

Our common humanity demands action. There isn’t a moment to lose.

Best regards,

Colleen Connors

Chandra Leigh Brown is a guest on hyhradio.com

Hear a portion of her story and why she was recognized as the “International Chairperson for the Disabled 2006” for her hard work since her brain injury in 2002.

My daughter is a champion.

image

She entered her first dance competition and came away with;

1. One First prize trophy
2. Two gold ribbons
3. Two first place ribbons
4.  A future Star award.
6.  One Gold medal

I have no idea how she did all of this seeing that she competed in only two dances.  She was in a solo dance and a trio.  For some reason the judges felt she was awesome.

I’m not saying Barack Obama is the “perfect” candidate

The other day I was listening to Joe Madison on satellite radio and a caller and he were talking about Obama’s campaign.  Madison often talks about how black people are undervalued, underestimated and marginalized in politics and within American culture.  On this particular day, I heard both of them saying how if Barack Obama were to become president that we would no longer be undervalued, underestimated and marginalized.  While I heard this, I didn’t really listen (at the time).  Today, it really hit me. And I realized how powerful that statement was.  While I don’t believe things will change overnight, can you imagine the paradigm shift, if the most powerful leader in the world were a black man?  Our kids and grandkids would have a completely different mindset about what black people can and cannot attain.

What’s the matter with people?

Why don’t people understand what voting is all about?  I’ve been hearing more and more people say this or a variation of it, “I’m not voting for [insert candidate here] because I don’t think [insert candidate here] will win and I don’t want to waste my vote.”

What’s the matter with people?  Elections aren’t popularity contests!

The problem is that so many people pay too much attention to published polls that they forget the purpose of THEIR individual vote.  They feel that if a poll says that candidate X is ahead, then that candidate is the only viable one running.

NH is an example of the fallacy of that type of faulty thinking.  Obama was ahead in almost every poll yet he lost to Clinton.  This should be proof enough to explain it.

Has anyone else heard this mess?
