Monday Link Time
Howard Dean Gets A Gig - It's about time we get to hear from him. I still don't accept the excuse about not meshing or whatever excuse was used to justify Dean not being part of the Obama administration. Not when the agitators and combatants got positions and not when others with questionable ties and loyalties remain. Not when highly paid and wealthy officials decide certain laws are like a cafeteria menu that they can pick and choose which ones to follow are supported by the President. Something in the milk ain't clean.
African Nations Exchange White Oppressors for Asian Ones - By barring the Dalai Lama from entering South Africa for China approval. Meanwhile China is taking resources just as quickly as the Europeans did. You'd think some of these (mis)leaders would review a page from history and get a clue...but that seems to be asking too much!
History of Violence in Oakland: Will This Serve As A Wakeup Call to Blacks? Probably not the ones it needs to. While people are still raw about the Oscar Grant III shooting, some lunatic killed 4 police officers at a traffic stop this past weekend. What are the odds of the cops stopping to ask questions instead of shooting first NOW? It's not all about white racism. When will people stop harboring the criminals and ex-cons in their neighborhoods and stop making excuses for their behavior? They're not all "babies" or "misunderstood" or "otherwise good people".
Continuing with this conversation, the Mehserle preliminary hearing has been postponed by the judge. It feels like every accommodation to avoid prosecution of the former transit cop will be made under the guise of "justice".
If you're not using Twitter - STOP - and join now! I'm telling you it opens up your entire network and social circle in a way you'd never imagine. We need more people of color involved in technology ventures and you can't do that if you're not even in the loop.
