Kevin Broadus and Binghamton University – food for thought

Friday, April 2nd, 2010

“…he (Kevin Broadus) expresses the importance of availability of opportunity for young people, including those with sports abilities. Coach does not believe that we should assume, for whatever reason that a young person, won’t be able benefit from education access, while allowing a person with athletic talents to reach for his or her own personal dream. Some dream to become leaders in academia. Others wish to become accomplished sports figures. As so clearly demonstrated in the recent hit movie about Michael Oher, “The Blind Side”; had some of the coaches, schools, and public taken the position they have regarding rigid “standards” that have been espoused in this case, that gifted young man would have been a casualty of society rather than the person he is with the accomplishments he has achieved.”

Crackers by Chris Rock

It’s taken 6 years for this music video to get out. If the title doesn’t give you a clue why it’s taken so long to get out, everything from 27 seconds on will. Oh it’s a parody of Outkast’s Hey Ya music video alright. And it’s dripping with sarcasm. I couldn’t stop laughing the first [...]

Robin Williams vs. Australia – Williams is right

Thursday, April 1st, 2010

Does Alabama still have problems? Sure does. But Prime Minister Rudd, if you don’t want Australians called rednecks I can easily come up with a few more salty and far more accurate names to use instead.

LL Cool J – the elusive Black Republican?

Wednesday, March 31st, 2010

Could you imagine that? Well obviously someone at Fox News media department did. Because he included an image of James Todd Smith, along with Jack Welch, and a Congressional Medal of Honor winner, in a promotional ad for an upcoming Sarah Palin special. How did they not see a problem coming? When I saw the [...]

Kevin Broadus has a common problem

Friday, March 26th, 2010

Imagine other coaches having their friends and colleagues investigated because of the color of their skin. Say a similar investigation was made on Jews, or Evangelists, or smokers. Would you say that was outrageous? Or would you say, as some have in Binghamton, that he is just overreacting?

5 black piano keys, a rich history and sound

Monday, March 15th, 2010

A friends sent me a link that I found really remarkable, and I want to share it with you. The thing about the video you will see (which I first viewed at http://pjcockrell.wordpress.com/2007/11/22/amazing-grace-just-the-black-notes) is that I doubt most are aware of spiritual songs created by African Americans during and after Slavery in the U.S. Sure [...]

Bill O'Reilly addresses Minister Louis Farrakhan

Wednesday, March 3rd, 2010

What’s the difference between Louis Farrakhan and any media supported Black “leader”? Nothing. It’s not a joke. There is no punchline. The fact is that I don’t see a difference. Whether it’s Rev. Sharpton, or Rev. Jackson, or Minister Farrakhan the net result is the same. An individual that owes their success to the division [...]
