Did Obama Do His Homework?

October 31st, 2015

If you listened to Barack Obama’s description of their relationship with his former? minister, Reverend Jeremiah Wright, you had been most likely impressed incidentally he managed the podium and spoke so eloquently. You’ve probably been used by their terms, especially when he started his speech with “We the individuals.” If he previously done his homework and reviewed the Black motion over the last forty-five years, he should have stated, You the folks. [My italics] Why? Since the self-anointed, movers and shakers of the Black Movement, like Reverends Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, cannot may actually want to be element of “We individuals.” Their rhetoric and hypocrisy have actually held the racial divide as wide once the Grand Canyon.

Some Blacks appear to wish to be segregated. They celebrate the Ebony skip America Contest, and Black Movie Awards; they will have unique magazines, Jet and Ebony and a host of other Black-only functions. They have their own schools. Just how many white attorneys do you know that have graduated from Howard University?

Basically began a skip White America Pageant or published a magazine called The Caucasian, the press, Reverends Jackson and Sharpton, and everybody else in the movement might have a battery pack of solicitors with restraining sales within my home in mins. Then their lawsuits would follow close behind.

When is Ebony America planning to start taking obligation for itself? If Dr. Martin Luther King had been alive today, do you think that Jackson and Sharpton could have the energy they’ve? Dr. King preached to pull your self up by the bootstraps and work out something of your self. In the event that you wait for the government, you’ll die waiting.

Throughout the 2004 Presidential competition, Senators Kerry and Edwards, cried away, “Help is in route!” Look right back at a few of the great black leaders in the united states whom couldn’t wait for federal government help and entitlements and did it on their own-Sen. Obama and their wife Michele included. Why is he advocating exactly how White America and also the government have unsuccessful the Blacks. He knows just how to pull himself up. Then lead by example.

The self-anointed leaders’ like Jackson and Sharpton’s rhetoric, assists in maintaining the racial issue inside limelight. They’ve also enlisted the help of the media in their quest. They would like to keep racial dilemmas in the vanguard even if they cannot exist. I believe the press helps you to stir up a hornet’s nest every time they have one thing to report. They select and twist things from context to match their agenda, particularly when it comes down to race-relations.

Why don’t we look back to 1997, when professional golfer Tiger Woods won the Masters Tournament.

For anybody that are not really acquainted with the tournament that occurs yearly, the prior 12 months’s champion hosts a champ’s supper the current winner. The host can be the person who chooses the menu.

At the end associated with the tournament Fuzzy Zoeller, an other professional golfer, was interviewed about Tiger’s victory. When asked for his viewpoint by the press, about Tiger, Zoeller stated, “That small child is driving well and he’s placing well. He is doing every thing it requires to win. Consequently, you know what you people do when he gets in here. You pat him on straight back, say congratulations, appreciate it, and make sure he understands not to serve fried chicken next year…”

The press had an industry day. It got so beyond control that Fuzzy Zoeller destroyed his sponsor. He was expected by the press to help make a public apology. Also Oprah got into the fray. Yet everybody regarding professional trip understands exactly what a jokester he is.

If padraig harrington were Italian and Zoeller stated next year tell him not to ever serve meatballs and spaghetti, or if he had been Jewish in which he stated it seems like bagels and lox for dinner, the press might have laughed along side him. However, their agenda raised its ugly mind, so that they went ahead and made it racial. Did anyone get harmed except Fuzzy? Ended up being the remark racial? I really do maybe not think it was. Every ethnic team has their very own nutritional pleasures so we make fun of those on a regular basis, without harm. How does the press constantly appear to exacerbate the situation? Whenever they intentionally make something racial from a situation, they move the Civil Rights motion backward by helping incite the motion’s leaders.

On March 21, 2008, during a speaking engagement, Barrack Obama said-“after plenty stops in the campaign and eating countless fried chicken dinners-Don’t you simply miss those chicken dinners?” Duh!

When Alex Haley’s book “Roots” aired as a mini-series on TV, it introduced a double-edge blade. First, it taken to the forefront the problems during slavery. The next and negative occasion it caused had been a movement that Blacks embraced, which said, we should go back to our African origins. Suddenly kiddies received African tribal names. Some educators were dressing in tribal garments. Because of this, they find it too difficult applying for employment whenever their new names resemble Kawani Lumumba Jones [Pseudonym] or they appear for interviews in a long robe and sandals. Yes, prejudice to some degree nevertheless survives in the us today. However, it is being exacerbated with what seems to be a Black agenda.

Therefore, in retrospect, Obama missed the mark and, in this, missed the message. He did similar in Ohio when he proclaimed that if elected, he can renegotiate NAFTA to create back the jobs to Ohio. How about the NAFTA created jobs inside sleep of America, will they be lost? If he wished to be honest, he would have stated, “NAFTA is wonderful for America. Often it may hurt some area of the nation, however, in big picture, it is good for the united states. It is up to you to move where the jobs are.”

When Toyota and Honda launched their flowers in Tennessee, these were hiring by the thousands. Just how many unemployed workers in Detroit relocated? There clearly was a Japanese proverb that says, “A wise willow bends within the wind.”

Senator Obama ended up being among the first to demand the dismissal of Don Imus, however, perhaps not of Reverend Wright. All Imus did was insult a basketball team-Wright insulted America. Do I hear the phrase hypocrite?

Therefore, it seems in my experience that Obama missed the mark. Men and women have to learn to simply help by themselves, not wait in line for entitlements.

I can picture Dr. King looking down from Heaven, viewing Obama talk. He’s pursing his lips and shaking their head laterally.

Michael Solomon is a previous NYPD Detective. He’s the recipient of 19 prizes for Excellent and Meritorious police work. During his tenure within the cleverness unit, he was assigned to safeguard the Shah of Iran, and Madame Chang of Taiwan. He’s got actually met four U.S. Presidents. He had been assigned as the intelligence officer on U.S. State Department during treaty negations between your United States and Turkey. He holds a Bachelors Degree Magna Cum Laude in Behavioral Sciences, from New York Institute of Technology and a Masters with Distinction in public places management from longer Island University.

In 2003, he had been cited by both homes regarding the NY State Legislature in a Resolutions as Humanitarian of the season for their charitable contributions to their community. – He has published two publications. “Triumph By Default”, – The Depersonalization Of Corporate America. His 2nd book “in which Did My America Go?” explores the hypocrisy in United states politics. – he’s been the subject of numerous magazine and news articles. In 2006, he had been named as Time Magazines “Person of the season.”

Blue Moon Cowgirls and Neptune’s automobile at Cellar phase
Event on 2015-11-13 20:00:00
BLUE MOON COWGIRLS: "A small bit invitin', slightly excitin', slightly ignitin'… that's my trademark," proclaims a classic song. And that's the Blue Moon Cowgirls, four Washington-area musicians along with their very own energizing approach to nation music. A shimmering trio of female voices backed by versatile acoustic instrumentation, the Blue Moon Cowgirls blend front-porch directness with neon-lit elegance while they sing about home and highways, paradise and honkytonks, heartbreak and hope. Their repertoire stretches through the 1920s Appalachia to the 1990s Ca, with stops as you go along at a few years' worth of prairie roadhouses and bayou dance halls. The sound of country music has become on the road, but its heart has remained in identical place, therefore the Blue Moon Cowgirls usually takes you here. Ann Porcella's musical style gravitates toward the gospel music she discovered at home from her preacher father and very big musical family members. The woman deep, powerhouse voice adapts well to a lot of different traditional styles, though harmony performing is her very first love. She has performed solo sufficient reason for many different ensembles at people venues around the nation, like the Augusta concerts and Folk on Broadway. Karen Collins, a coal miner's daughter from Southwest Virginia, was raised playing country music. Presently she’s fiddler and vocalist with the Washington area's popular Cajun musical organization Squeeze Bayou and plays with Ira Gitlin into the honky tonk nation group, The Backroads Band. She’s got been taking part in various types of old-fashioned music for many years and it has played and sung in bluegrass, old-time Appalachian, and early nation music groups. Lynn Healey is the newest member of the Cowgirls. A Washington DC native, Lynn spent my youth singing with her father and two sisters. She favors harmony singing and playing rhythm guitar. The woman back ground and love of bluegrass music is mirrored in her singing and playing. Lynn happens to be a part of a few area bluegrass bands, including New Girls Nite Out and Orange Line Special. She presently does as an associate of Rockledge bluegrass band. Ira Gitlin's guitar playing gets its down-to-earth drive from their long involvement in bluegrass, and its own sophisticated rhythms and harmonies from his fascination with western move and jazz. A WAMMIE leading multi-instrumentalist and former National Bluegrass Banjo Champion, Ira is in demand as a sideman and music teacher. He is able to also be heard in your area with Backroads Band, the The Oklahoma Twisters, Lulu's Fate, and The intense Travelers. NEPTUNE'S vehicle: Mix together a singer-songwriter from Massachusetts (Holly Hanson) with a guitarist-songwriter from brand new Hampshire (Steve Hayes), merge a dollop of Contemporary Folk with a dash of Old Timey-Country, a shared passion for lighthouses and historical biographies, therefore'll have the nautically called duo Neptune's automobile. (Neptune's vehicle ended up being a clipper ship with a female captain a genuine adventure of heroism regarding the high seas inside 1800s.) The duo has become understood for his or her intimate performance design, carefully crafted lyrics, good harmony performing, and exceptional electric guitar picking. "A breathtaking mixture of nation and folk… Holly's vocals are tender, hot and quite evocative with each track using the form of a story or story. Steve's electric guitar playing complements Holly's vocals perfectly giving each of the tracks depth and character… it really is worth taking time for you pay attention to the lyrics while they hold the key for this feast of musical delights… there are tips of Nickel Creek and Alison Krauss but Neptune's vehicle need not be in comparison to some other performers. This is certainly a solid musical duo whoever music can stay on its own two feet… The tracks are breathtaking and also the general atmosphere developed is perfect." ~ Maverick Magazine.
