Last week, when I wrote a piece about the Fourth of July, some morons came with what they know as the end all and be all of arguments: "Love it or leave it."

That even fell from the filthy lips of some confused Negroes.
That argument is old, tired and stupid.

When you gamble, at some point, all bets may come off the table, because for some, either there is nothing to lose, or there is nothing to gain.

As a people, Blacks may have come to the point where all bets are off.

We've reached a point where everyone knows that they don't really have to care about us. There is no incentive to do right by us on any level because we haven't done what we need to do to control our communications, our economy or anything that we actually could have controlled.

Monday Mover -- Scared
"...I'm alone in this trial, I'm scared and out gunned but I'm right."  Rudy - the young attorney from the John Grisham movie The Rainmaker. 

To those of you facing a major project, or end of the month goals, or a nefarious manager, or starting a new job, or the loss of a client, or non-supportive spouse, or a number of other situations ... remain active, alert and available to your potential.  By all means remain.

The United States Supreme Court ruled last week that public education officials may not use race to achieve integration in public schools. Yes, you heard it right. After 52 years, the high Court reversed itself on the venerable case of Brown v. Board of Education, five separate cases consolidated under one oral argument—then called “the Segregation cases.”

Black Agenda Report
Tavis Smiley's presidential forum, before a black audience, with questions by black journalists, focusing on the issues ignored or bypassed in the mainstream media, but vitally important to the African America community, was billed as a historic occasion. But what we got was something else --- a game show format, driven by shallow sound bytes, all of it summed up for us by the same Republican pollster who gave us the "Contract For America" and the "death tax." Tavis Smiley's presidential forum shows what we get when we confuse black celebrity with black leadership, and marketing with journalism.
