The Land of the Tea Party Will Rise and Fall in One Day

A Parody of the Shutdown of Government

Black news from Pasadena - Editorial - Parody of Government Shutdown - Tag People - Tea Party Rise and FallOnce upon a time there arose a TAG of people from the trash heap of Texas, Alabama, Georgia, North and South Carolina; a group of people who call themselves the Tea Party (Tag people) and their followers, the Bag people. These people rose from the dust pod of life during the reign of King Baracko. They had existed since the time of slavery in the land of America, but legitimate power was never to be theirs.

Community Leadership

African American news from Pasadena - Editorial - Tyrone Skinner and Young African American Male Leadership conference lessonsMy hat is off to pastor Tyrone Skinner who has celebrated 20 years of leadership as pastor of Metropolitan Baptist Church in Pasadena. Under his leadership, the Young African American Male Leadership conference was created. This year's conference was held last weekend at Pasadena City College, serving over three hundred young men from this community.

I sat on a panel that talked about community leadership and where we go from here. A young Man, Wayne Jackson, who graduated from Howard University posed the statement that we need to unify and all head in the same direction. I thought of the fact that we were all there because of Pastor Skinner's leadership for 20 years. We were there for the purpose of leadership and to pass on the things we have learned over the years to the younger ones in the community and help them take on the leadership mantle.

Ben Jealous Leaving the NAACP

African American news from Pasadena - Editorial - Ben Jealous leaving NAACPThe NAACP continues to be an important piece of American history, and so it was a shock when Ben Jealous announced that he was resigning. He implied that a female was taking over.

I am not sure that it matters who takes over the organization which still is the most important organization in the struggle for equality in America. Unlike international organizations where leadership passes from one person to another, the NAACP leads the country's massive population in their struggle for equality in America. It is the oldest Civil Rights organization in America and the one that holds the largest amount of power in terms of leadership.

No to Another War . . . Where’s the Quid Pro Quo for Black America?

Black news from Pasadena - Editorial - No to another war - where's the quid pro quo for Black AmericaIf I were grading President Obama, I would give him an A minus. I would give him an A because he has achieved so many things that other presidents before him have failed to do. His primary legislative accomplishments have been the Affordable Care Act also known as Obamacare. I know it's a great accomplishment because the Republicans have dedicated their recent careers to trying to repeal it.
