The Other Woman Running for President - Rep. Cynthia McKinney

AAPP: Why is it that Americans are stuck on considering only Democrats or Republicans?

Why is it that the media is not covering the campaign of former Democratic Rep. Cynthia McKinney who is seeking the Presidency as Green Party Nominee? For that matter, why are black and other bloggers ignoring her campaign? OK Cynthia McKinney seems to have the Green Party Nomination Is the Green Party really going to support her campaign? Is Cynthia McKinney dealing with the issues that America needs to deal with and the other two major parties are not. so I have a lot of questions, Cynthia can you give some answers?

Former Democratic Rep. Cynthia McKinney
Source: Democracy Now

Cynthia McKinney is now seeking the Green Party presidential nomination. McKinney is among the most outspoken critics of the Bush administration, and one of her last measures in office was to introduce a bill for the impeachment of President Bush and Vice President Cheney. She joins us to talk about her new campaign and why she left the Democratic Party after more than a decade in public office. More HERE

Barack Obama keeps it real on the Crow Indian Reservation

“I understand the tragic history,” Mr. Obama said, addressing tribal leaders and members. “Our government has not always been honest or truthful in our deals.”

Source: The NY Times

AAPP: There is an interesting contrast going on in the presidential campaign. Barack Obama keeps it real on the Crow Indian Reservation. As reported in The NY Times, Senator Barack Obama campaigned for the presidential primary in Montana – one of two states that closes out the Democratic nominating process on June 3 – he was welcomed here by a few thousand people. In a private ceremony, he was adopted into the Crow Nation and bestowed the name, “One Who Helps People Throughout the Land.” More HERE

While in contrast Bill Clinton is keeping it unreal, trying to impact on how historians will write about him and his wife's presidential campaign. Now we learn from Politico.com's that Bill Clinton has been placing blame on enemies including a brazenly biased media that tried to suppress blue-collar votes, a powerful anti-war group that endorsed rival Barack Obama and weak-willed party leaders unable to stand up to either of these nefarious forces. Read More about
Bill Clinton’s attempt to blame liberals and anti war groups HERE.

I guess it's typical Bill Clinton style, you remember Bill Clinton:
"It depends on what the meaning of the words 'is' is." –Bill Clinton, during his 1998 grand jury testimony on his Monica Lewinsky affair.

Are White women voters turning away from Obama?

Do you think white women have turned against Obama? Or is it media and blogger hype?

According to Paul H. Kuhn of
Politco.com Barack Obama’s favorability ratings among white women has declined significantly in recent months, particularly among Democrats and independents, presenting an immediate obstacle for the likely Democratic nominee as he moves to shore up his party’s base. Is this true? did Hillary have something to do with this decline? I wonder? More HERE

African American Political Pundit Credentialed and will Blog LIVE at the Democratic National Convention

OK, my email box has been on full blast over he past few days. Thank you everyone for the congratulatory emails.

I'm a man of faith, and my mother taught me to always thank God for the blessings you receive. So today I want to thank God for the blessing I received. I am appreciative and proud of the fact that the Democratic National Convention staff have chosen me and other members of the AfroSpear (black blogger think tank) and the larger Afrosphere (black bloggers around the United States & World) to cover one of the most significant events in over 400 years of African American history.

A special congratulations and shout out to
Jack and Jill Politics, Pam's House Blend, What About Our Daughters?, culturekitchen, Dallas South blog, Oliver Willis, RaceWire who are also credentialed and will also blog at the convention. Like you I commit myself to providing the best coverage possible.

Factoid: In 2004, the DNCC credentialed about 30 blogs to cover the Convention in Boston - the first Convention to credential bloggers. Recently, the DNCC announced that 55 blogs focused on state and local politics were selected to be members of the DemConvention State Blogger Corps.

AAPP: I'm still concerned about the lack of
diversity in the State Blogger Corps, and will discuss it (giving my own opinion and not the opinion of the afrospear black bloggers think tank) in an upcoming post.

Again, I'm proud to have been selected, with afrospear bloggers and the over
120 bloggers for this historic event. I believe the DNC still has some work to do in order to truly make things right with the larger black bloggers community, and larger black democratic constituency. I will talk about possible constructive corrective action in my upcoming post. I'm sure black bloggers attending the convention and those activist interested in a constructive conversation about diversity, we will keep the lines of communication open. We can meet and resolve this issue, as America works to take back the White House.

NOTE: Altogether, the DNCC will credential more than 120 blogs for the Convention and many more individuals will blog the Convention via credentials issued through the U.S. Congressional Press Galleries.

The complete list of blogs credentialed blogs are listed at:
DemConvention.com/credentialed-blogs or check it out below:

To all the bloggers selected congratulations.

No Real Fix For Hillary Clinton

My Thoughts after Attending NAACP Leadership 500 Summit

I'm writing about my observations and thoughts regarding my experience at the 4th annual NAACP Leadership 500 Summit. - Looking Forwards

My thoughts after attending NAACP Leadership 500 Summit

There are a lot of great things that happened at the conference. I met some great people and did some real soul searching myself. The NAACP Summit provided me with an opportunity to think differently about how we come together as a people to address issues important to black America. Candidly I must co-sign with my good brother Kevin Myles, NAACP President from Wichita Kansas Branch as he has captured much of my experiences at the summit.
Check out some of what Kevin Myles has to say in his: Reflections from the 4th Annual NAACP Leadership 500 Summit.

I agree with Kevin Myles the summit was phenomenal. Yes, the speakers were timely and informative and each brought useful information.

I'm a new member of the NAACP and plan to work in good faith with Kevin Myles, Stephanie Brown (the Director of Youth and College) and with the full committed support of Vice Chair Roslyn Brock and the new President and CEO Benjamin T. Jealous to create positive expansion of the NAACP's efforts and methodologies.

Join me later as I share part III of my thoughts after attending the NAACP Leadership 500 Summit.

Democracy Space Addressing DNC Convention Blogger Black Out

Hat Tip to Julie Fanselow and the folks at Democracy Space who are asking the same questions folks inside the afrospear have been asking.

When will blogs reflect America?

Democracy Space writes: The Washington Post has a high-profile story today about how the pool of credentialed state bloggers at the Democratic National Convention is apparently nowhere near as diverse as the party itself. Its coverage follows recent stories by the Dallas Morning News and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The DNC announced its roster of 55 state blogs earlier this month. The Post's Jose Antonio Vargas writes, "To the frustration of black bloggers, the list appears to be mostly white - during a primary race in which black voters turned out in droves in Georgia, South Carolina and Mississippi. And, they add, this pool is for coverage of a convention that might very well see the first African American presidential nominee."

More bloggers will receive credentials to attend the convention, but they will not enjoy some of the perks that the 55 designated state blogs will receive, including better Internet access and seating with their state delegation. Bloggers of color who are questioning the DNC's commitment to diversity include Francis L. Holland, Pam's House Blend, and African American Political Pundit, although some black bloggers note that they did not apply for the state blog credentials since their interests are more national in scope. Moreover, the state blog corps applicants weren't asked for racial identity information, and since relatively few bloggers offer such information on their sites, the DNC probably had little way of knowing which blogs include people of color.

Nonetheless, bloggers are decrying the selection process. At her blog Anderson at Large, Faye Anderson noted the irony that Democratic National Convention Committee CEO Leah Daughtry - the daughter of a noted black clergyman - was quoted in a news release announcing the 55 bloggers saying, "I'm excited about the roles these bloggers will have in engaging an even broader, more diverse base of people from around the country in conversations not only about the Convention, but about the future of our nation." Anderson replied: "Black bloggers do not share Daughtry’s excitement. They are outraged over the lack of diversity."

It's true that the political blogosphere tends to be dominated by white men; among the biggest blogs, the most notable exceptions are Markos Moulitsas ZĂșniga, a Latino who oversees the popular progressive blog Daily Kos, and conservative Michelle Malkin, who is of Filipino heritage. But growing numbers of bloggers are people of color; a recent National Newspaper Publishers Association story reported that there are now 900 identified black-owned blogs, up from 75 in September 2007. It's not surprising that bloggers of all races are calling out the Democratic Party's claim to represent America's diversity if that commitment isn't adequately demonstrated in its credentialed convention blogs.

AAPP: Visit Democracy Space it's a great blog!

Democratic National Convention and Black Bloggers

International blogger Francis L. Holland is on the case regarding what he terms the Jim Crowing of black bloggers by the DNC.

AAPP: "I guess the DNC wants black bloggers to go along with their 'fairy tales of inclusion' and follow the DNC's Yellow Brick Road."

Over the past week, Aaron Myers, Director of Online Communications for the 2008 Democratic National Convention Committee, contacted Pam Spaulding (of the AfroSpear's PamsHouseBlend blog) and me, seeking to "clarify" the details of the new Democratic National Convention floor blogging [apartheid] system. My response to Aaron is here. (I requested specific demographic information about the bloggers to be credentialed and, although Aaron at first expressed an urgent desire to talk with me, he did not respond to my request for information by e-mail and did not call as promised.) At least one other member of the AfroSpear had the same experience with Aaron Myers over the weekend.

However, on Saturday, Aaron called Pam Spaulding and provided more information verbally, indicating that the discrimination and that the DNC intends to institute and practice in Denver (and perhaps forever thereafter) is far more pernicious, intentional and significant than was previously known. Pam says,
I was contacted by Aaron Myers, the director of online communications for the 2008 Democratic National Convention Committee, and spoke with him a couple of days ago to ask him about the credentialing process, the details in level of access, and some logistics, in an effort to get some information on the record. Pam Spaulding, PamsHouseBlend, May 26, 2008.
First, the term "floor blog, the DNC admits, is almost synonymous with "white blog", since virtually all of the 55 DNC-selected "state blogs", save one or two, perhaps, will be white blogs. The DNC does not deny, but instead confirms, that virtually all of the blogs credentialed for the floor are white blogs.

The DNC refuses to release exact demographic data, claiming that it does not know the skin colors of the blogs that will be required to submit to extensive background checks as a condition of their attendance, and with whom the DNC has held conference calls as well as other formal and informal contacts.

However, the DNC says it does somehow know the skin colors of the blogs to be accredited as pool blogs, at least sufficient to assure members of the AfroSpear and afrosphere that the pool blogs credentialed will be more integrated. It is not yet known how or why the DNC know does not know the skin colors of the blogs the DNC accredited first, but DOES know the skin colors of the blogs that have not been accredited yet.

Here are the known benefits and privileges that will be accorded to and enjoyed by the 55 virtually all-white blogs on the Convention floor, but that few if any Black blogs will enjoy: More HERE

U.S. Senator Hillary Clinton Staying In Race Just In Case - Is She Involved In subliminal messaging RFK # 2

Have you all been checking out how it's now cool for news outlet talking heads to laugh about the assassination of a presidential candidate. Yes, this assassination stuff - started by Hillary Clinton it's getting real ugly. You know what I'm talking about, her sending out a subliminal message, designed to pass below the normal limits of perception. unrecognizable by white America's conscious mind, but understood by the conscious mind of black America. The message - knocking off a black presidential candidate. Read more: Clinton on "Assassination" -- Defending The Indefensible

No folks
Hillary's RFK comment was not a merely making a 'careless' comment, her message was calculated.

As reported in the NY Times,
Clinton Could Face an Uneasy Return to the Senate.

AAPP: And well she should receive an uneasy return. Too bad black politicians don't get it.

There is talk of a vice-presidential slot for Clinton, but guess what that prospect hopefully won't happen after Clinton’s remark last week about the assassination of Senator Robert F. Kennedy, which highlighted fears about Mr. Obama’s safety. Candidly this AAPP feels she needs to resign the Senate. One has to wonder why blacks on the CBC are not calling for her resignation ? Jimmy Carter seems to be showing more common sense than the Congressional Black Caucus. Black folks should be making her uncomfortable.

Now as reported by CNN we learn the Bill Clinton is at it again, this time throwing more garbage out into the Democratic primary season saying there is a
'Cover up' hiding Hillary Clinton's chances. Whatever Bill Clinton, Whatever!


Bill Clinton says his wife is ahead in popular votes, and Democrats will lose in November without her.

Hat Tip Electronic Village

Hat Tip Francis L. Holland

Liz Trotta, a conservative white woman commentator, was asked to comment on Hillary Clinton's suggestion that the word "assassination" is relevant in the 2008 presidential campaign. Trotta responds:
"and now we have what ... uh...some are reading as a suggestion that somebody knock off Osama ...uh..um..Obama [after being prompted by the FNC anchor]....well both if we could [laughing]"

NAACP - A Second Look - Part I

I'm back home after being in Arizona for the NAACP Leadership 500 Summit as a guest of my new best friend brother Kevin Miles, Branch President of the Wichita Branch of the NAACP, along with Ms. Roslyn McCallister Brock, Vice Chair of the National NAACP National Board. Who is also my new best friend.

I'm writing my observations and thoughts regarding my experience at the 4th annual NAACP Leadership 500 Summit with the following backdrop understanding:

Looking Backwards

My thoughts before attending NAACP Leadership 500 Summit

The mission of the NAACP is to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate racial hatred and racial discrimination. I've written previously that I'm not sure over the past 30 years the NAACP has had a realistic Strategic Plan to implement it's mission, while including black folks from the hood to the board room in the NAACP.

For years the NAACP has done a reasonable job at including the talented 10th, but has failed to include the poor. For some time I like a majority of black Americans have been concerned with the decline of the organization. For some time the NAACP has been wresting on its success in gaining support for Anti-Lynching Bill, Voting Rights, Brown V Board of Education and other issues of 50 years ago.

The NAACP has in my humble opinion failed to maintain its status as a champion of social justice. Yes it fought long and hard to ensure that the voices of African Americans would be heard, but it is an organization that has not developed a concrete outreach effort to engage black folks at a grassroots level to become members of the NAACP so that we as black Americans can work from all classes of black America to truly save lives and change many negative aspects of black American society in the 21st century. I attended the Summit to learn for myself if the NAACP is still stuck in a mind-set that worked 50 years ago but makes little sense today.

My thoughts after attending NAACP Leadership 500 Summit

The Good, The Bad and Ugly

The Good

The Leadership 500 Summit is billed as a unique opportunity to transform the NAACP brand into action for a new generation of civil rights activists.

When I arrived at Leadership 500 Summit I was greeted by Kevin Myles, and was immediately introduced to NAACP National Board of Directors Vice Chairwoman Roslyn M. Brock. OK, I must say I was surprised that the Vice President is actually so young. I was happy to see that a woman is in the V Chair position. I had an opportunity to meet with her throughout the summit. V. Chair Brock is truly a great visionary who is preparing for the road ahead.

Ms. Brock believes "leaders are not born; they’re developed either because of opportunity or necessity,”and as conceiver of the summit she is prepared to build and broaden NAACP membership and build effective leadership through careful thought, consideration and strategic action. Ms. Brock assured me that she is eager to partner with the afrospear and other black bloggers who are prepared to unite around common interest. I'm eager to work with Ms. Brock and the staff of the NAACP to make that happen. I've even become a new dues paying member.

Please join me as I post more About my experience, and share the good, a little about the bad and just a little of the ugly in my next installment of The NAACP - A Second Look - Part II.

Election o8, Hillary's RFK Comment Merely 'Careless' or Calculated?

Alec MacGillis has an article in The Washington Post that talks to the issue of Hillary Clinton's RFK assassination comments and Barack Obama's response. Alec writes that, Barack Obama spoke publicly today for the first time about Hillary Clinton's invocation of Robert F. Kennedy's assassination, telling a Puerto Rico radio station that he took Clinton's word that she meant no harm.

"I have learned that when you are campaigning for as many months as Senator Clinton and I have been campaigning, sometimes you get careless in terms of the statements that you make, and I think that is what happened here," he said in an interview with Radio ISLA. "Senator Clinton says that she did not intend any offense by it, and I will take her at her word on that."

AAPP: What the hell was Hillary thinking when she said, "We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California." Well as Alec noted in the article, speaking to reporters yesterday, Clinton sought to clarify the comment.

"Earlier today I was discussing the Democratic primary history, and in the course of that discussion mentioned the campaigns that both my husband and Senator Kennedy waged in California in June 1992 and 1968, and I was referencing those to make the point that we have had nomination primary contests that go into June. That's a historic fact." she said. "The Kennedys have been much on my mind the last days because of Senator [Edward] Kennedy, and I regret that if my referencing that moment of trauma for our entire nation, and particularly for the Kennedy family, was in any way offensive. I certainly had no intention of that whatsoever."

AAPP: OK so now we know it is not the first time, as reported in The Washington Post there have been "several previous instances in the past three months when Clinton referred to Robert Kennedy's assassination in discussing her decision to stay in the race for the duration." It appears that Hillary Clinton is truly a calculating woman who would rather see Obama end up like RFK.

Hillary creating a level of fear - Did Hillary Just Call for the Assassination of Barack Obama?

What is so disgusting Hillary is probably aware (as reported by Anne E. Kornblut), "a Washington Post-ABC News poll taken in March, nearly six in 10 Americans said they were worried that someone might try to harm Obama (Ill.) if he were the nominee -- more than double the percentage who said they were worried about the same for Sen. John McCain (Ariz.), the presumptive Republican nominee."

Get this, Among African Americans, the concern was even greater: More than eight in 10 said they would be worried about Obama's safety, including 55 percent who said they would be "very concerned" (20 percent of whites said they would have that level of fear)."

AAPP: Hey get this I'm not the only blogger concerned about Hillary's madness. Check out the post by,Electronic Village, Francis L. Holland, Jack and Jill Politics, The Unapologetic Mexican, Pam Spaulding at Pam's House Blend and Pandagon, My Private Casbah, Ultraviolet Underground, All About Race and many others.

Come on folks, we all know the underlying thought behind Hillary's comments. Hillary was calling out every bigoted redneck, every White Citizens Council member, every KKK member, every Aryan Nation member to do what? Francis L. Holland sees it very clear. Did Hillary Just Call for the Assassination of Barack Obama?

This woman makes AAPP sick, she does not deserve to be in the running for anything. How can she run the United States government when she cannot control her tongue with all this assassination talk, and she surely had problems controlling her man in the White House. Would she ever be able to control him if considered for the Vice Presidential role? I think that Obama would be a fool to select her as a VP running mate. He would have to have food tasters around him 24/7 as he surely could not trust her.

"Hillary Clinton's assassination comments must be taken seriously.
There is beginning to be a pattern developing here." - Pastor Kyev Tatum, AfroSpear Member Blog
