- I have a clean record. As a 30 year employee of the DWP, I’m not receiving the DWP retirement benefits I have earned, yet a convicted felon Samuel In, is receiving all of his City Pension Retirement benefits!
- If You are of Good Character, Sound Mind, Ambitious, and True to Your Fellow Man or Woman as Well as Self You Will Succeed no Matter Your Ethnicity, or Your Plight!
- Good Character, Telling the Truth Must be Meaningless. President Barack Obama is giving Praise to Danny Bakewell, Sr. and the LA Sentinel "Yellow Journal" Newspaper. Typically an inept Black community make heroes of this scum and keep them in business!
- Great Start to Immigration Reform: Convicted felonious illegal immigrants will work picking crops while incarcerated to defray taxpayer expense, very much like the "Chain Gang of the South". Deportation will begin at the end of the sentence served!
- Indeed Eddie Glaude. Also, it is refreshing to know that President Barack Obama, Valerie Jarrett, Colin Powell, Magic Johnson, and/or other prominent Blacks have not duped all US born Descendants of Slavery!
Well Sandy Banks, Blacks are Irresponsible and Dysfunctional for Making Heroes Out of Misfits like Barack Obama, Maxine Waters, Herb Wesson, Mervyn Dymally, Mark Ridley Thomas, Yvonne B. Burke, Kwame Kilpatrick, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Jr., etc.
Well Sandy Banks……
……… It is not racist to say that Black voters are irresponsible and dysfunctional for continuously voting for elected officials who have contempt for the Constitution and U.S. citizens or legal immigrants, and/or for making heroes or naming parks, streets, or schools after past or present disgraceful and treasonous individuals such as:
President Barack “the Magic Negro/Illegal Alien Bootlicking/Food Stamp President/Lying/Talking Down to Black men while doing nothing to serve law abiding U.S. born blacks” Obama
No good deceitful Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr
No good Los Angeles City Councilman Herb “Sleazy Wesson Oil” Wesson

Good friend of Reverend Jim Jones fraudulent Merv “Deceitful Illegal Immigrant” Dymally (I’ve been a registered voter for almost 40 years, and the article entitled “Mervyn Dymally dies at 86; former lieutenant governor, congressman and legislator”is the first time, meaning after the death of Merv Dymally, that it has ever been published that Mervyn Dymally is a U.S. citizen.
Prior to this article the Los Angeles Times, the Los Angeles Sentinel, and other newspapers or reputable sources only published that Merv Dymally is a native of Trinidad……native of Trinidad and U.S. citizen or legal immigrant not being synonymous terms…..meeting U.S. citizenship status and residency requirements being very important issues for any responsible voter in deciding the fate of any candidate who runs for political office.

Indeed, Darrell Nelson, the hypocrisy of FAME and our own no good black elected leaders, kicking U.S. born blacks to the curb and beyond, while the sheer ignorance of a primarily black congregation serves and feeds Hispanic illegal aliens, etc., etc., who take full advantage of every opportunity, including the ignorance of FAME…..which explains why U.S. born blacks remain and stay at the bottom, socially, politically and/or economically.

“Conviction for assault
In 1971, Karenga "was sentenced to one to ten years in prison on counts of felonious assault and false imprisonment". One of the victims gave testimony of how Karenga and other men tortured her and another woman. The woman claimed to have been stripped and beaten with an electrical cord. Karenga's former wife, Brenda Lorraine Karenga, testified that he sat on the other woman’s stomach while another man forced water into her mouth through a hose.
A May 14, 1971, article in the Los Angeles Times described the testimony of one of the women:
"Deborah Jones, who once was given the Swahili title of an African queen, said she and Gail Davis were whipped with an electrical cord and beaten with a karate baton after being ordered to remove their clothes. She testified that a hot soldering iron was placed in Miss Davis' mouth and placed against Miss Davis' face and that one of her own big toes was tightened in a vise. Karenga, head of US, also put detergent and running hoses in their mouths, she said. They also were hit on the heads with toasters."

Kumbaya era unravels in campaign against Obama, Election of the first black president hasn't loosened nation's grip on prejudice, particularly with GOP's call for a return to American values.
Sandy Banks, November 3, 2012
She seemed embarrassed to tell me that she's voting for Mitt Romney, as if the admission might suggest that she'd been hiding racist leanings during our long friendship.
Four years ago, she voted for Barack Obama and made sure then that I knew it. She was proud to vote for the black man, to celebrate the history-making and imagine an America breaking free of racist roots.
This time, she said, it's not about race: Been there, done that. Now we can all go back — with a feather in our cap — to politics as usual.
That's the party line, anyway. And that's what we'd like to believe.
But whether you do may depend on the color of your skin.
Our reporters hear it often on the campaign trail, at Republican rallies that are blindingly white and steeped in patriotic calls to return the country to American values with a real American at the helm.
When those flag-waving voters are asked what they mean, their take on the president makes it clear: He's Kenyan-born, he's a closet Muslim, he has European-socialist tendencies.
No one is using the N-word these days. The "foreign" label is its proxy — a signal that Obama is the "other" in a nation trying to come to grips with seismic economic changes and unsettling demographic shifts.
My friend, who's white, doesn't see it my way. A few nut jobs with "birther" banners don't tarnish the Republican Party, she says. People feel scared and dislocated. There's something comforting about businessman Mitt, with his five-point plan and promise to return us to simpler days.
But I feel betrayed by the contempt displayed in this campaign; our kumbaya era has unraveled with stunning ferocity.
It's not just the cutting "send Obama back to ... Kenya" comment by the campaigning son of Wisconsin's former governor. Or Sarah Palin's patronizing "shuck and jive" line about Obama's handling of the consulate attack in Benghazi. Or the guy in the "Put the White Back in the White House" shirt at a Romney-Ryan rally.
One of my Facebook friends keeps a running tally of racially insensitive remarks; the watermelon jokes may have diminished, but the "you people" stuff is going strong.
It descends to the absurd sometimes. Like the claim that Gen. Colin Powell, a Republican stalwart, endorsed Obama only because they share the same skin color.
Obama's race does indeed mobilize black voters; his vision coincides with our interests. But black voters don't always lean black. Ask Clarence Thomas or Herman Cain about that.
That's the sort of stereotyping that makes it so hard to talk openly about the impact of race on our actions and thoughts.
Listen to Kid Rock stumping for Romney-Ryan at a Detroit-area college last month: "I also wanna be clear that I'm very proud to say that we had elected our first black president, all right. I'm sorry he didn't do a better job. I really wish that he would have."
Nothing unfactual about that. Obama is black. He could have done a better job. Kid Rock and I apparently share, at least, a sense of pride that Obama was elected at all.
But he sees the black president as a failed experiment. And I see a leader who was shackled from the start by the GOP's chest-thumping pledge to block him from success.
It's hard to complain about racial slights without sounding thin-skinned. Just living life as a minority can breed a certain paranoia, a sensitivity to being dissed because of religion, nationality or skin color.
Still, it's not my imagination that Obama's ascent did little to loosen our nation's grip on prejudice.
Racial animosity has actually increased in the last four years. A recent poll on racial attitudesby the Associated Press found "anti-black sentiments" in 56% of voters, up from 49% in 2008.
Republicans were more comfortable expressing overt disdain; 79%, compared to 32% of Democrats, agreed with statements like "I think blacks are irresponsible." But the poll found that 55% of Democrats and 64% of Republicans harbor hostile latent feelings about black people.
If you've never been on the receiving end of those sentiments, you have the luxury of believing they don't exist. But I understand now what my mother meant when she used to say "I know it when I see it."
It's hard to explain to my white friends why I get teary-eyed sometimes just watching Barack Obama stride — like he owns the place — across the lawn of the White House.
My parents were raised in the segregated South. My father's family fled Georgia just ahead of a lynch mob. My mother came to Cleveland from Alabama, and used to marvel at the sight of "white and colored" socializing together.
And I still remember childhood visits to my grandparents' farm — being told to drink only from "colored" fountains and warned not to try on clothing while shopping.
I marvel at the road we've trod. How, in the space of just 50 years, has my country come so far?
In 2008, I didn't think it had. I didn't trust the polls putting Obama ahead. I drove to Inglewood on election night, because I couldn't bear being disappointed in Northridge. And when the winner was declared, every person in that restaurant cheered and applauded.
Some, stunned by the sight of a first family that looks like us, just grabbed the stranger next to them and bawled.
Those moments of pride overcame a lifetime of doubt.
Now four years later, my friend complains that hope has faded and not enough has changed to give Obama another chance.
And in the midst of this deeply polarized election, bound to reflect a race-based tilt, we're being asked to believe that the ugly Republican campaign rhetoric has nothing racial to it.
I don't. There's hope. But real progress will only come when we are willing to deal honestly with uncomfortable, homegrown truths.

"I have to agree with you here. You have not mentioned what Obama has done for the black community- which is considerable. I am sure that you speak for us as well, but please acknowledge some of the good things that Obama and any other candidate has done for AA’s, too." by Deborah.
"You have not mentioned what Obama has done for the black community- which is considerable".
And flocks of birds fly backwards against a strong tail wind too!
"Some of you blacks are straight idiots. You vote for a man, don’t state your demands but expect change! Numbers don’t lie, 1 in 4 black babies are aborted=genocide, 46% of black folk drop out of high school, the unemployment rate is 14% for blacks vs 7% for whites and blacks males make up 35% of the prison population. Keep in mind we’re only 13% of the U.S population. You d**n right I expect Obama to address those issues, especially being a black male. Black folk need to hold this negro feet to fire and demand change by any means necessary!" by Enlightened Blackman.
Indeed, Enlightened Blackman.
U.S. born blacks must have more than a few screws loose in the "old noggin" for voting for Barack Obama and continuously aligning with the Democratic Party, when both Barack Obama, the Obama Administration, and the Democratic Party have contempt for U.S. born blacks.

"These men have been doing a disservice for black people for 40 and 50 years.
Jackson has never had a JOB he is a shakedown artist, back in the day he talked us into boycotting different companies and he kept the money paid to him to call off the boycott. He is a rhyming womanizing clown. Al is an even bigger joke! Al was given the TV program to help insure blacks do not think for themselves and tote the Democratic party line. What do we do? Believe something must be true because they said it! Why have we not gone further as a people, Jessie and Al keep us with our hands out begging for rumbs. They got young people thinking if they can Dance, Rap, play a Sport they will be a success. Hey Al and Jessie, when will you pay back the money you stole when they told you to run for President to keep the blacks in their place?" by Onesilverbac

President Barack Obama thinks that he has the "black electorate" in his corner.
This time, Barack Obama will receive a huge awakening, because it won't be business as usual. Unlike 2008, many black voters who supported Barack Obama in 2008, are not willing to make the sacrifices to promote or vote in Barack Obama this time.
