We must fight racism, bigotry, sexism and every form of hatred where ever it appears. At the moment it lives and breeds and is thriving within the American Republican Conservative movement, Im not saying that a majority of republicans are hate filled racially motivated bigots. However in today’s America, hate filled racially motivated bigots are Republicans.

I ’m often asked why I’ve focused so much more on anti-black racism than on Asians over the years. Some suggest I suffer from internalized racism. That might well be true, since who doesn’t suffer from internalized racism? I mean, even white people internalize racism. The difference is that white people’s internalized racism is against people of color, and it’s backed up by those who control societal institutions and capital. But some folk have more on their minds. They say that focusing on black and white reinforces a false racial binary that marginalizes the experiences of non-black people of color. No argument here. But I also think that trying to mix things up by putting non-black people of color in the middle is a problem because there’s no “middle.”
So there’s most of my answer. I’m sure I do suffer from internalized racism, but I don’t think…

Poverty rate for Children in the US sets at 22%. These are the most vulnerable among us. They cant speak for themselves. They don’t have lobbyists in DC looking after them. Who will fight for them? Will you? will I? We must. The republican party wants only to take their only lifeline. The TeaParty led GOP will gut the Farmbill if allowed, striping over 20billion in food allowances to these impoverished babies. Please call your congressperson and say enough is enough.
Conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly says Republicans are making a mistake by trying to court Hispanics with comprehensive immigration reform legislation.
“I think that’s a great myth because the Hispanics who come in like this are going to vote Democrat,” Schlafly told the Focus Today radio program in a clip obtained by Right Wing Watch on Wednesday. “And there is not the slightest bit of evidence they are going to vote Republican.”
“And the people the Republicans should reach out to are the white votes — the white voters who didn’t vote in the last election, and there are millions of them,” she advised.
Schlafly added that the Republican establishment had given the party a “series of losers” with the nominations of former Sen. Bob Dole, Sen. John McCain and former Gov. Mitt Romney.
“The propagandists are leading us down the wrong path,” the activist remarked. “There’s not any evidence at all that these Hispanics coming in from Mexico will vote Republican.”
Last month, Schlafly told Republicans that they would be committing “suicide” if they enacted immigration reform.
We Dems in Va. are excited about the GOP slate of Candidates for Nov. However the GOP isn’t. I think the Love affair with the TeaParty is over.

Yet another Democratic candidate has fallen asleep at the wheel in a special election from Massachusetts. John Kerry’s old senate seat is in play and I am convinced that we can do much better in this race. A poll shows Rep. Ed Markey up by 7 points. Let’s wake up and smell the republican in the race. He is a radical rightwinger who waffles on issues. How can we trust a guy who donated to president Obama in 2008. Gabriel Gomez is a typical republican who will be Mitch Mcconnell’s puppet.
Don’t be foolish and vote for a second Scott Brown.
