Where is the Justice for the Black Boy in America?

The verdict in the George Zimmerman trail has added to the question which has been going back and forth in our legal system since the days of Reconstruction. The question: What is the value of the Black boy in America? George Zimmerman being found not guilty I believe, has sent a clear message to America. That message is, killing an unarmed Black boy in the name of “self-defense” is justified and protected under the law. Zimmerman did not run after killing Trayvon. He didn’t cry out into the night saying “Oh my God I just shot somebody’s kid!” No Zimmerman, according to sworn testimony of those who talked to him right after the shooting, was calm and content. Zimmerman in his … Continue reading

The NY Times reports… Mr. Romney is facing mounting hurdles in these two critical states, which hold nearly as many electoral … Continue reading

Hazing McCain

Robert Stacey McCain doesn’t particular care for my reporting. McCain, who runs the blog “The Other McCain”, is one of the increasingly decreasing number of outspoken supporters of Ali A. Akbar, president of a group called the National Bloggers Club. I’ve written a handful of articles on the topic, and he took issue with one in particular – Romney Staffer Committing Charitable Fraud. First of all, he credits other people for my work. Then he apparently feels it’s relevant to include 750 words on Brett Kimberlin, the boogiest of boogie-men to the conservative blogosphere – not to mention someone I’ve never knowingly worked with, talked to, seen or even known much about. When he finally gets back to me, he … Continue reading
