The Rev. Jeremiah Wright Is Preaching to the Democrat Choir. What He Says Sounds A Lot Like MoveOn.Org

The Democrat front runner, Barack Obama will clear things up this morning by distancing himself from his Trinity Church Minister, Rev. Wright. But why? Isn’t that the same hate speech that has been feeding the Democrat Party for the past 40 years?

This is the core of the Democrat Party.
Only the liberal elite, white leaders are to be the top of the ticket. Obama went beyond his station in life. He was to be Hillary’s “running mate.” Get to the back of the Clinton bus, Obama.
Rev Jerimiah Wright

“That anger” of black men like Wright, Obama said, “may not get expressed in public, in front of white co-workers or white friends. But it does find voice in the barbershop or around the kitchen table. … to condemn it without understanding its roots, only serves to widen the chasm of misunderstanding that exists between the races.”

Obama gets Kennedy endorsements and doubles Hillary’s votes in South Carolina

By Mick Gregory

This is a big story being downplayed by the Hillary Clinton machine and mainstream media which they pander to. In fact, Bill Clinton tried to persuade Ted and Caroline to hold off on their endorsements.

Why hold off on their own opinions? So that the Hillary machine can try and interfere in the big rust belt states and California to put up a final firewall against Barack Obama?

Senator Edward Kennedy will endorse Barack Obama for president tomorrow, breaking his year-long neutrality to send a powerful signal of where the Massachusetts Democrat elder sees his party going — and who he thinks should lead it.

Kennedy aids told the Boston Globe Sunday that the Bay State’s senior senator will appear with Obama and Kennedy’s niece, Caroline Kennedy, at a morning rally at American University in Washington tomorrow to announce his support.

This comes after Saturday’s triumphant win for Obama and very poor showing for Hillary and Edwards in South Carolina.

Obama is ahead on all convention-bound delegates awarded so far in primaries and caucuses. That’s because each state has its own method of counting votes cast into the awarding of pledged delegates. In Iowa, Obama got 38 percent of the vote to Clinton’s 30 percent, but that translated into only 16 delegates to Clinton’s 15. In New Hampshire, Clinton got 39 percent to Obama’s 37 percent. That translated into a delegate tie, with each candidate awarded nine delegates. In Nevada, Clinton got 51 percent to Obama’s 45 percent. That translated into 13 delegates for Obama and only 12 for Clinton, according to the Associated Press, a finding backed up by the chairman of the Nevada Democratic Party. That was because Obama did much better all over Nevada, while Hillary only did well in Las Vegas where her union bosses took charge. Now South Carolina gives 25 voting delegates to Obama in his landslide victory. Obama is well ahead. But is the mainstream media reporting this?
Obama is winning.

Next, the Clinton machine is trying to change the Democrat party rules in the middle of the game. She will try and win in Florida even though the party has decided against awarding any delegates to candidates in the Florida primary. That was a penalty for Florida’s delegates taking That is dirty machine politics and another blatant attempt to illegally win an election.

Major Media Fund Will End Race-Based Journalism Programs With Colleges. A Settlement to a Federal Lawsuit.

By Mick Gregory

White students were excluded until today. Race-based affirmative action program ends after 40 years.

The Dow Jones Newspaper Fund, a nonprofit organization supported by the Wall Street Journal, has agreed to cease operating summer journalism programs solely for minority students in response to a lawsuit filed by an advocacy group critical of affirmative action.

As part of a legal settlement announced today, the fund — which had been operating more than 20 program for minority high-school students in connection with colleges — agreed to open up the programs to members of any racial or ethnic group and to rename the programs to drop references to minority members. The fund has been awarding students of color only for four decades with the goal of inspiring minority students to pursue careers in newspaper journalism.

Today’s settlement comes in response to a federal lawsuit filed in September by the Washington-based Center for Individual Rights. The lawsuit challenged a summer program for minority student journalists operated by the newspaper fund, Virginia Commonwealth University, and the Media General Corporation, publisher of the Richmond Times-Dispatch. The suit alleged that the program’s race-exclusive eligibility criteria violated the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which guarantees equal protection under the law, as well as various federal civil-rights statutes, including Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits racial and ethnic discrimination by educational institutions that receive federal funds.

The plaintiff in the case had been Emily Smith, a junior at Monacan High School, in Virginia’s Chesterfield County, who submitted an application to participate in the Virginia Commonwealth summer program last March. The lawsuit alleged that Virginia Commonwealth initially notified Ms. Smith that she had been accepted for the workshop but then rescinded its offer after one of its faculty members called Ms. Smith, asked her race, and learned that she was white.

As part of the settlement, Virginia Commonwealth agreed to offer Ms. Smith admission to its workshop for 2007 and agreed that, if she accepted, she would “not be discriminated against on the basis of her race or because she filed the lawsuit.”

The Dow Jones Newspaper Fund’s guidelines for newspapers and colleges involved in its summer workshops previously had said that “each participant must be a minority (defined as U.S. citizens who are black, Hispanic, Asian or Pacific Islander, American Indian, or Alaskan Native).”

Among the other colleges involved in the race-exclusive programs last summer were Florida A&M, Kent State, Marquette, Monmouth, New York, San Francisco State, and Seattle Universities, and the Universities of Alabama, Arizona, Kentucky, Miami, Missouri, and Texas at El Paso.

In announcing the settlement of the lawsuit, Terence J. Pell, president of the Center for Individual Rights, said, “Virginia Commonwealth University deserves credit for taking the lead in promptly settling this case. Today’s settlement saves the taxpayers significant legal expense and ensures that this summer’s programs will be open to all, regardless of race.”
