Was Being brown Michael Browns crime?

Was being brown Michael  Browns problem?

 

It was a warn sunny day in July of 1999. The city was Fort Wayne, a medium sized town in the northeastern corner of Indiana.

If it were not for this great nation, and it’s commitment to higher education, I would have never…

THE FERGUSON RIOTS

THE FERGUSON RIOTS, ETC.

I guess everyone knows by now that I am very disappointed with President Obama for his lack of effort to be a voice for the human rights of African Americans, as he has been for Israelis and Gay Rights advocates.  In truth Blacks have been persecuted in this country under his watch, and it has taken – not the deaths of Black men at the hands of White…

Influx of Illegal Immigrant Children Likely to Strain Public Schools

 Each of the tens of thousands of illegal immigrant children pouring across the U.S.-Mexico border who remains in this country is legally entitled to a free public education. If President Obama allows large numbers of illegal alien children to remain in the United States, the public schools will have to manage an unforeseen and possibly unmanageable influx of new foreign children as early as this fall.

Beyond the Rhetoric: Africa Goes to Washington

Finally, President Obama extended an invitation to African nations to participate in a Summit.  It was rather short but yet it was a summit. He invited 52 of the 54 nations – omitting Sudan and Zimbabwe which he declares as being wicked.  I have seen no official news reports about the number that actually responded.  I heard anywhere from 40 to 50. One thing is certain.  This event was historical and has put the African continent on everyone’s mind.  Seeing thousands of people filling…
