    I always marvel at the Blackademics who say PBO needs to make a defining statement on racism. The statements are already made by the racists

    Love how PBO brought up that grad Ciera was accepted to Harvard but attended Howard. Slapped the Scalia “lesser universities” theory in face

    This is undoubtedly accounts for Ms. Tyson’s beautiful LONGEVITY.

    PBO quotes James Baldwin: “Eveything we face can be changed. Nothing can be changed until it’s faced.”

  7. Ametia says:


    “You can be completely RIGHT, but you’re still going to have to engage folks who disagree with you.”

    “I will take better everytime.”

    “I always tell my staff: “Better is good, because you consolidate your gains and then you move on to the next fight.”

      This is why Bernie Sanders needs to stay in until all the votes are counted.

      Like him or not, he has the right to stay in and the voters have a right to decide if they want to VOTE for him or Hillary.

      “Be confident in your blackness,” “there is no one way to be black … There’s no straightjacket, there’s no litmus test for authenticity.”
