An intelligent enemy is worth more than a stupid friend.

Honestly, American conservatives are going insane! Since America has elected the first man of color, every initiative coming from the White House is subject of controversy. The election of Barack Obama was a miracle for those like me who did not believe that America had reached a level of accepting a non-white man leading the […]

Pastor Steven Anderson‘s death prayers against President Obama have media attention. For a president who has an unprecedented high rate of death threats, this not a big surprise. The first president of color surely expects to face death threats. Four of his white predecessors were killed in office, and many others escaped assassination attempts. This […]

The fly had life even before the dog had its wounds.

President Obama invited Sergeant Jim Crowley and Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr., to the White house for a beer. Even though the gesture is good and symbolic, America still has a long way to go when it comes to race relations. This case was just a reminder to the collective that race is and will […]

There is no better mirror than a best friend.

President Obama has been criticized for using the word “stupidity” after the arrest of the well-known Harvard professor, Henry Louis Gates,Jr. His comment lit up the controversy that is overshadowing an important matter dear to the president: health care reform. It is difficult to say if the president reacted as a black man or as […]

If man is a river, then woman is a bridge.

The nomination of judge Sotomayor as Supreme Court Justice is certainly the news of the moment. I have been reading about her life and am very inspired by it. From where she was to where she is today, I have say it is a great achievement. She has been nominated not because she is a […]

The lion’s power lies in our fear of him.

The Chinese government’s campaign of terror and intimidation toward any country that sympathizes with Tibet seems to be working well. Many voices were raised against Madam Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, when she visited China, because she did not denounce the human rights abuses by the government in Beijing. China is certainly a big player […]

He who throws a stone in the market will hit his relative.

The New York Post apologized to those who felt offended by the cartoon of the two cops shooting the chimpanzee. I don’t understand why the New York Post believes that there are some opportunistic people who are exploiting this situation. I honestly don’t believe that anyone has an interest to benefit from this regrettable incident. […]

An insult is but a short garment: it reveals the one who wears it.

The New York Post is in the news for a cartoon. Clearly when a cartoonist wants attention, he has to come out with something controversial. The picture of the two cops shooting a chimpanzee doesn’t have anything to do with the stimulus plan. Some people sees it as invitation to shoot the president. Even a […]

Ashes will always blow back into the face of the person who throws them.

Today is a great day for democracy in America. The McCain campaign lost the elections. Sarah Palin must learn from her mistakes. The American people reject the race card and reject taking the dark road to win an election. As the Ashanti of Ghana say, “Ashes will always blow back into the face of the […]

You don’t fear the rain because the sky is dark.

More sad news in American politics. Ashley Todd from Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, a young female volunteer for the McCain campaign, was charged for filing a false police report. She claimed that she was attacked and sexually assaulted by a Black man because she had a McCain/Palin bumper sticker on the back of her car. C’est du […]
