Politics As Warfare

When President Obama took office in 2008, a manufactured political movement began, which coined itself – The Tea Party. Members of the Tea Party were so sure of their political cause, and bolstered by Republican backing, they didn’t think twice about showing up at rally’s, protests and town hall meetings accompanied by their side holstered handguns and fully loaded assault rifles. Some […]

The Lesser of the Two: Kirk vs Giannoulias

In one corner we have Congressman Mark Kirk, a man that was so desperate to win favor among the conservative Tea Party crowd that he at one time actively sought the endorsement of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin for the Senate candidacy. He did however balk at the idea of receiving an endorsement from Glenn Beck. When […]

Message To Gay Conservatives: Ann Coulter is no Judy Garland

I failed to criticize Ann Coulter last month when news surfaced that she had accepted an invitation to headline GOProud’s HomoCon 2010, the first annual gathering of so-called homosexual conservatives that took place at Pay-pal co-founder Peter Thiel’s estate in September. (I use the term “so-called” because it’s quite obvious that being homosexual is not exactly […]

Why Juan Williams Was Fired by NPR Then Hired by Fox

When I get on the plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous. I do a double take. I have a moment of anxiety of fear given what […]

‘Pastor’ Eddie Long: Pulpit Pimping, Abuse of Power & Muscle Shirts

Remember Ted Haggard? The anti-gay evangelical preacher who turned out to be as gay as Ricky Martin’s boyfriend. We all remember that his deck of cards came tumbling down so fast he had nowhere to land except in the arms of the second gay man he was accused of sleeping with after the first story broke. The […]

Black Women’s Interracial Dating Woes

I’ve been working on two blogs for awhile now. The first is about black women and interracial dating, the second is about race and culture and what I feel is a growing disconnect within the lesbian community. They are equally touchy subjects and since I’m one the few that has stepped outside the comfort of my cultural […]

Semenya Caster’s Back In Competition

Semenya Caster, 19, has been declared ‘fit to be female’ by the IAAF. Family and friends have always maintained her sex to be that of a female. However, at the insistence of the IAAF, and the international sports community, she was forced to undergo a series of invasive tests that attempted to determine her biological gender. Semenya was forced into an 11-month hiatus from athletics in order to “prove” a female […]

Tea Party Express Leader Mark Williams Booted For Racist ‘Satire’

Dear Mr. Lincoln We Coloreds have taken a vote and decided that we don’t cotton to that whole emancipation thing. Freedom means having to work for real, think for ourselves, and take consequences along with the rewards. That is just far too much to ask of us Colored People and we demand that it stop! […]

On Mel Gibson’s The Passion Of The Rant

So Mel Gibson’s an alcoholic, egomaniac, and a damn good actor with a mean streak. What’s new in Hollywood? Certainly not the violent verbal outbursts that have tapped into the consciousness of his most loyal of fans over the past few weeks. And honestly, it’s not like he’s showing a side of himself we’ve never seen before. Lethal Weapon and Braveheart were perfect examples of […]
