The St. Petersburg branch of the NAACP staged a debate this past Saturday to allow black residents to familiarize themselves with the candidates in newly drawn Congressional District 13, and to allow the candidates to familiarize themselves with the residents and the issues that concern them.
Good Grief! I thought after 2014, black folks would have seen the last of the snake Chain Gang Charlie Crist slithering through our churches, slobbering on our kids and pretending to be Frederick Douglass reincarnated.
There used to be an old saying: "Bullets don't have eyes" -- which means anyone can get hit by a bullet once it's fired from a gun.
Hold on President Obama! We love you and all, but you stepped a little out of turn this weekend while giving your speech at the Congressional Black Caucus Legislative Conference annual Phoenix Dinner.
Remember the video of first-grader Kameria crying hysterically when she found out President Obama soon would be leaving office? Her grandmother, Caprina Harris, uploaded the video to Facebook and it went viral. Eventually, it was seen by President Obama and little Kameria and her family received an invitation to the White House to visit with the President and the First Lady.
You would have to be living under a rock in Florida not to know that I’m the FIRST one to call out racism against Black people. I call out racism so much that I have been called racist myself.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz has made it clear. She would rather do anything than spend time in Congressional District 23. The former chair of the Democratic National Committee used her position as chair to stay away.
She spent much more time outside the district than she did in. There are cities in her district, primarily the ones where minorities live, that NEVER see or hear from her. She chalked that up to being the head of the DNC.
Ok, Debbie, you WERE the head of the DNC. You aren’t anymore.
As the late, great poet and author Maya Angelou said, “When someone shows you who they are, believe them; the first time.”
For the first time in 24 years, Debbie Wasserman Schultz will not get the endorsement of the AFL-CIO.
Despite winning the recommendation of the Broward County chapter, Wasserman Schultz failed to get the required 2/3 votes to secure the endorsement.
Some state AFL-CIO chapters have stated there would be no endorsement of Democrats who voted in favor of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).
That includes Wasserman Schultz.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz is out as DNC chair. The only thing left for her to do is relinquish the title, because as of now, she has no power.
