I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
In 1963 Mitt Romney’s Dad led a march in Detroit suburb to highlight housing discrimination against blacks.
Mitt Romney’s father pressed an aggressive agenda on the issue of civil rights. The Democrat race card is a joke.
NAACP welcomes top political figures, but Obama notably absent
July 10, 2012
An array of prominent political figures are converging on Houston this week for the NAACP’s annual convention.
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder spoke Tuesday, Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney speaks Wednesday and Vice President Joe Biden is scheduled for Thursday. But one person is noticeably absent: President Obama himself.
Political experts say this is an indicator of just how confident the president is that the majority of black voters will go his way.
“Granted, the novelty and historic dimensions have faded,” says political expert Mark Jones of Rice University, “but I believe the president feels the African-American community will turn out in force to elect him.”
Indeed, polls show the president enjoys almost as much support among African-American voters now as he did four years ago. Still, if it’s a close election, experts are keeping their eyes on a few key swing states like Florida, Ohio and Virginia — states where a surge of African-American voters could make a difference for the president.
Attendees of the NAACP convention are determined to get as many voters out to the polls as possible. They’re organizing and developing plans to leave the convention, go back to their communities and reach out to those who haven’t yet registered.
How many times has Obama been back to the South Side of Chicago since he has been elected? When running for POTUS, Obama was so proud to be from the South Side. Gang violence in Chicago has grown exponentially. Where is Obama’s bus?
Black Unemployment Increases From 13.6% to 14.4%
July 6, 2012
The long, sad faces you’re seeing from our corrupt media has nothing to do with the bad news the unemployed received this morning (my wife among them). Nope, the media is sad for Barack Obama because job creation in June was way below expectations and the overall trend is downward. Thanks to Obama’s failed policies, this great big beautiful country of ours created only 80,000 jobs last month, way below estimates that ranged in the 100,000 mark, some as high as over 150,000.
Hit hardest were the unemployed in the black community, where the unemployment rate increased from 13.6% in May to 14.4% in June. For black youths aged 16 to 19, the unemployment is now an astonishing 39.3%, up from 36.5% last month.
After an increase from 10.3% to 11.0% in May, the unemployment rate among Hispanics remained stuck at 11.0% in June.
According to CNN this is the weakest job quarter in three years.
Liberal group calls Romney too white for blacks to like
In advance of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s speech Wednesday to the NAACP, a liberal group headed by a former New York Times reporter and ex-Media Matters executive have produced a video “satire” that claims blacks don’t like Romney, who they dub so white he makes “Wonder Bread look like pumpernickel.”
The YouTube from “The Message,” an online “media hub,” is described as a satirical video of Romney getting advice on what to say to the civil rights group. Or, as they said in a release, the video “lacerates Romney and his advisors as they prepare for his speech to NAACP in Houston on Wednesday.”
The lead “advisor” in the video is described as the brainchild of the 1988 Willie Horton ads and the 2004 swift boat campaign. He states bluntly that “blacks don’t like us and we’re about to give a speech to a whole lot of them.”
He also says to the candidate, “you are so white, you are extremely white, you make Wonder Bread look like pumpernickel,” before advising the Romney actor never fully seen to “go on out there and get all Mormon, Martin Luther King on them, you’re going to be great.”
According to a news release, The Message said it plans to use videos to “say things that Democrats are afraid to say, connect with young voters-many of whom are alienated by today’s political climate, and give smart and insightful voices an opportunity to contribute to the debate.”
The group is directed by Razor & Tie co-founder Cliff Chenfeld, former Media Matters for America president Eric Burns, former AOL chief creative officer and co-founder of theknot.com Michael Wolfson, and former New York Times journalist Andrew Zipern/

BLACK POLITICAL HISTORY: THE UNTOLD STORY
What was the Party of President Lyndon Johnson, who called Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. “that [N-word] preacher” because he opposed the Viet Nam War; and President John F. Kennedy who voted against the 1957 Civil Rights law as a Senator, then as president opposed the 1963 March on Washington by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. after becoming president and the FBI investigate Dr. King on suspicion of being a communist?

The Truth About MARGRET SANGER(This article first appeared in the January 20, 1992 edition of Citizen magazine)
How Planned Parenthood Duped America
At a March 1925 international birth control gathering in New York City, a speaker warned of the menace posed by the “black” and “yellow” peril. The man was not a Nazi or Klansman; he was Dr. S. Adolphus Knopf, a member of Margaret Sanger’s American Birth Control League (ABCL), which along with other groups eventually became known as Planned Parenthood.
Sanger’s other colleagues included avowed and sophisticated racists. One, Lothrop Stoddard, was a Harvard graduate and the author of The Rising Tide of Color against White Supremacy. Stoddard was something of a Nazi enthusiast who described the eugenic practices of the Third Reich as “scientific” and “humanitarian.” And Dr. Harry Laughlin, another Sanger associate and board member for her group, spoke of purifying America’s human “breeding stock” and purging America’s “bad strains.” These “strains” included the “shiftless, ignorant, and worthless class of antisocial whites of the South.”
Not to be outdone by her followers, Margaret Sanger spoke of sterilizing those she designated as “unfit,” a plan she said would be the “salvation of American civilization.: And she also spike of those who were “irresponsible and reckless,” among whom she included those ” whose religious scruples prevent their exercising control over their numbers.” She further contended that “there is no doubt in the minds of all thinking people that the procreation of this group should be stopped.” That many Americans of African origin constituted a segment of Sanger considered “unfit” cannot be easily refuted.
While Planned Parenthood’s current apologists try to place some distance between the eugenics and birth control movements, history definitively says otherwise. The eugenic theme figured prominently in the Birth Control Review, which Sanger founded in 1917. She published such articles as “Some Moral Aspects of Eugenics” (June 1920), “The Eugenic Conscience” (February 1921), “The purpose of Eugenics” (December 1924), “Birth Control and Positive Eugenics” (July 1925), “Birth Control: The True Eugenics” (August 1928), and many others.
