Found this video which is so enlightening to issues dealt with on this site earlier concerning Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Barack Obama.
PHYSICAL CONFRONTATION: 2:22
The gentleman in this video is confronting David Frum who constructed the “Axis Of Evil” speech that George Bush used to make a pre-emptive strike against Afganistan and Iraq. He asks From about being complicit in beating the drums for war that have turned out to be unfounded and causing thousands of deaths.
He simply asks him if he is aware that he is an accomplice to murder and Frum angrily pushes him and refuses to answer questions so eloquently brought up by Rev. Wright in his speeches earlier this week.
So all of you that read this blog please wake up and understand the statements made by Rev. Wright are not in a vacuum and are felt by people across all racial lines. Wake up people!! the real criminals and fanatics are in charge of this government and are war criminals in every sense of the word.
A very not so new trend of kids putting lines in their eyebrows reignited by the popularity of Souljah Boy has some school administrators thinking the style is “gang related”. They have demanded that kids remove their eyebrows or don’t show up at school at all.
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) Centennial administrators are telling students with the lines that they can’t return to school until they shave their eyebrows off. Assistant Principal Mark Porterfield said the students are not suspended, but they are not allowed in school until they cooperate.
School officials say the mark looks like a gang symbol.
Four students have been sent home. One returned with a bandage covering the shaved brow.
Police say gangs have co-opted the trend for their own use, with one gang’s members marking themselves by shaving one line into an eyebrow and three lines in the other to symbolize 13.
We all saw this coming. Barack Obama has now distanced himself from his former Pastor Rev. Wright. After Rev. Wright gave two very controversial speeches to the NAACP on Sunday and the National Press Club on Monday, Barack Obama did what his advisers probably have wanted him to do all along to save his campaign, distance himself from the man who basically gave him street cred and his oratory swag.
I have feelings on both sides of this issue and it has left me torn in my analysis.
Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama denounced “ridiculous” statements made by the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, using his strongest language to date to distance himself from his former pastor.
Obama cited Wright’s contentions, repeated yesterday, that the government may have had a role in spreading AIDS in the black community, that U.S. actions overseas were partly to blame for the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, and about the importance of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.
Wright’s statements “offend me, they rightly offend all Americans and they should be denounced and that’s what I’m doing very clearly and unequivocally today,” Obama said in a news conference in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

It appears the fallout is being felt after a report was released confirming people’s worst fears, that BET is bombarding youth with explicit imagery. Now Procter & Gamble, one of the networks biggest advertisers has set up a hotline number to gauge whether customers share those sentiments. Apparently advocacy group Enough Is Enough put the press on P&G and now the “people” are expected to play “judge.”
One of the nation’s largest advertisers, Procter & Gamble, is soliciting input from consumers whether it should continue advertising on MTV and BET.
The packaged-goods company is taking calls at an 800 number. Once dialed, callers are advised they have two choice(s) regarding advertising on the two cable networks: press one if they want P&G to make changes in its advertising, or press two to indicate support for continued advertising on the networks. Input will be forwarded to the proper P&G executives, the recording indicates.
