NEW BLACK GOP MAG -- CONDI, SISTER OR NOT? -- BLACK FAMILIES -- REPARATIONS PART DEUX

8.22.2005


There's a new Black Republican Web site on the block, National Black Republican Association. It's a resource of black GOP info and a home for a new magazine. The inaugural issue has Condi on the cover. I wonder if they'll have profiles of prominent black Republicans. That would be a short series. Honestly, they have a good slate of regional black candidates running in '06 so it might be interesting.

On their list of Black Republicans, they have celebrities such as Sammy Davis Jr., Denzel Washington and oh yeah, Don King.

Speaking of Condi, E.R. Shipp at the Orlando Sentinel, says As a possible 'sister,' Condi Rice disappoints. Oh, the nerve.

There's a black blog called Successful Families which discusses the pros and cons of spanking and advocates black families leaving the public school system behind among other things.

"This blog aims to provide to African-American, African and Caribbean-American families a forum to discuss, share and exchange ideas about successful family life, including, but not limited to childrearing, child development and the preparation our kids for academic success from birth to college."

Read the post on "How Black Parents Fail Their Kid." It's the first in a five-part series.

I told you this was going to happen, didn't I? The State: Black lawmakers say Wachovia's donations not enough.

"The Charlotte-based bank apologized in June because two of its predecessor banks owned slaves. The bank later pledged $10 million over five years to scholarship programs and various civic organizations."

The reparations movement is not satisfied with acknowledgements, apologies and donations to scholarships. They want more, more and more. They won't stop which is why companies have to stop buying into this "we just want an acknowledgement" B-S.
