Obama Speaks of Racism

Review of Obama's Volume 1

Recalling the arduous 2008 path that ultimately led to his first term in the White House, Barack Obama writes in his new presidential memoir, A Promised Land,that his campaign was careful to avoid leaning into any issues that might be construed as “racial grievance.” By this, of course, he means Black concerns about the lethal consequences of institutional white supremacist power.

The Joy of Afro-Futurism

Despite the Trump era, there have been excellent on screen images that promise Black survival.

"Black Panther" (2018) stands out as a joyful example of Afro-futurism and Blacks overcoming evil. Sadly, Chadwick Boseman is no longer with us but the power of the visual depiction remains.

Futility Of Reaching Out To Trump Supporters

An article in the NYT describes the frustration one man encountered when trying to reach out to Trump supporters.

73 million Americans voted for Donald Trump. He doubled down on all his worst vices, and he was rewarded for it with 10 million more votes than he received in 2016.

CANCELING FOOT HOOD

John Bell Hood was an inept Confederate commander who led troops that killed Union soldiers. Despite his ineptitude, he name is attached to Fort Hood. As a movement to remove the names of Confederate soldiers from United States military bases, the name of Green Beret Staff Sargent Roy Benavidez has been put forth as a replacement. The heroic actions of Benavidez, who was shot multiple times including in the face and the back, while saving multiple soldiers is detailed in the article. Miraculously, Benavidez survived his wounds and received the Medal of Honor from Ronald Reagan.

FDT

FDT is a high rated song on iTunes. FDT means F*** Donald Trump. The song actually played on CNN as a camera crew was dancing in the streets in Atlanta after Biden was declared President-Elect. It allowed people to express their frustration living 4 years under Donald Trump. Dancing in the streets to FDT. Relieving stress.It was a Saturday. The high road can be taken in houses of worship on Sunday, or in the future. Express joy. Nothing burned. Nothing broken. Joy.

CANCELING ALEXANDER HAMILTON

The Woke are at it again.

The question has lingered around the edges of the pop-culture ascendancy of Alexander Hamilton: Did the 10-dollar founding father, celebrated in the musical “Hamilton” as a “revolutionary manumission abolitionist,” actually own slaves?

Some biographers have gingerly addressed the matter over the years, often in footnotes or passing references. But a new research paper released by the Schuyler Mansion State Historic Site in Albany, N.Y., offers the most ringing case yet.

Remembering Dorie Miller

Some grew up hearing the story of an eager Black military that gleefully went of to war to save the world from Hitler. These men and women put the segregation they faced in the United States aside. This story is, of course, nonsense. Black men and women in the military were actively involved in the Double V campaign. The project was to encourage fighting aggression overseas and to fight for freedom at home.

Jimmy Kimmel On The Dueling Town Halls

During his late-night monologue on ABC Wednesday night, Jimmy Kimmel waded into the brewing controversy over dueling town hall events happening Thursday on both his network and NBC.

“You know, there was supposed to be a debate tomorrow night, but since Trump would not agree to the virtual format that they wanted to have because he tested positive for the coronavirus, he backed out altogether,” the host explained. “So because there was no debate, Biden agreed to do a town hall on ABC that night.”
