Scripture To Think About: Hebrews 2:1-4

We must pay more careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away. (2) For if the message spoken by angels was binding, and every violation and disobedience received its just punishment, (3) how shall we escape if we ignore such a great salvation? This salvation, which was first announced by the Lord, was confirmed to us by those who heard him. (4) God also testified to it by signs, wonders and various miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will.

Scripture To Think About: Galatians 5:1

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.

McLaughlin Calls Obama 'Oreo'

McLaughlin Calls Obama 'Oreo'

Commentator John McLaughlin used the term "Oreo" in reference to Sen. Barack Obama on his TV show over the weekend.

McLaughlin, host of "The McLaughlin Group," was discussing Obama's relationship with the Rev. Jesse Jackson, in the aftermath of Jackson stating that Obama has been condescending toward black people.

“Does it frost Jackson, Jesse Jackson, that someone like Obama, who fits the stereotype blacks once labeled as an Oreo — a black on the outside, a white on the inside — that an Oreo should be the beneficiary of the long civil rights struggle which Jesse Jackson spent his lifetime fighting for,” McLaughlin asked.

Panelist Peter Beinart said such a description of Obama was "completely unfair." Fellow panelist Michelle Bernard said: "If Barack Obama is an Oreo, then every member of this generation of African-Americans is an Oreo, because we stand on the shoulders of the people who fought for our rights, and all of us say that you cannot blame 'the man' or white racism for everything that ails the black community."

Tony Snow: RIP See You In Heaven

Here's to a journalist who had the integrity to be real and honest. Many of us have watched Fox News Sunday since the beginning, and remember the friendly manner Tony Snow displayed, whether he agreed with his guests, or not.

Now what some people may not realize is this: Tony Snow was a man of faith. He lived his faith out publicly by always trying to be a gentleman, even if he disagreed with the guest. Prior to Fox's launching of Fox News Sunday, I had the opportunity to hear my former radio colleague Jane Chastain interview Tony Snow on the happenings of the Clinton White House. While Snow disagreed with the policies and the antics of the Clintons, he would report the things he saw while covering his Washington beat with class and respect. Snow had the fear of God instilled within him, and knew that when the time came for him to meet his maker (July 11, 2008), he would be rewarded for his deeds, and how he treated everyone he encountered while on this earth.

So Tony: well done faithful servant! Enter into the Glory of God's presence and His joy! Rest in His Peace my good brother, and we will all see you when our times come! See you again !

Chopping Nuts (Jesse Jackson)

Talk about politics...Jesse has done it again! I know you all heard it, and seen the video, so I won't repeat it. But before I go further, I want to acknowledge the response from Reverend Al Sharpton; at least he had the guts to say something when asked about it. He looked so uncomfortable when asked about Jesse's remark, but at least he had a respectable response. Also, Junior had the guts to speak out against what his father said. So to Al and Jessie Junior: Kudos!

Now what really disturbs me is this: Where Are The Rest Of The African American Civil Rights Leaders? Why haven't they spoken out about Jackson's comments about Obama? Where are you Earl Ofari Hutchinson? Why haven't you said a peep about it? Funny how these folks start yelling and screaming about that Kelly girl who made a joke around Tiger Woods, and how the leaders said she should be punished, even though she cleared the air with Tiger? How about those who condemned radio host Don Imus for his remarks, the same folks who went after that Kelly girl? How about the ones who are saying that those kids who pulled a prank with the Charter Oaks High School Yearbook should be prosecuted and sent to prison for a long time because they allegedly committed a "Hate Crime"?

How about it Earl, if you have the guts to read this blog? Are you giving Jesse a free pass because he's black and part of the community? Why haven't you gone after your own? Why are you bullying a bunch of high school kids who made a bad decision, and not going after Jesse for wanting to cut off Obama's nar nars? Don't forget that Obama is also part white.

Is Earl Ofari Hutchinson, by staying quiet, giving Jesse the nod to make a crude remark because Obama is part white? Or is Earl just being a big chicken about speaking out?

Chop Chop Earl!

For those of you who are wondering who Earl Ofari Hutchinson is, he is a writer, and a self proclaimed civil rights leader in the Los Angeles California area. He is known to be a loud mouth civil rights activist, and one of his last rants was about prosecuting a bunch of high school yearbook kids who made a bad judgment about swapping out some names on a page in a yearbook. Yes it was a bad joke, but Hutchinson stuck his nose into something that was none of his business. He has been noticeably absent in light of the nut chopping remark made by "Reverend Jesse".
