US and China, Comparison « Quotes You Can Steal »

The U.S. might still be the 500-lb gorilla on the economic block...but China is the 400-lb gorilla lifting weights and drinking protein shakes.

Wonderful Stuff « Politics As Usual »

I'd love to see these issues addressed squarely and fairly by leading liberal voices. Or even just the "mainstream" news media. But we won't. Anyway, here are some quotes:

...what do you call it when black women are almost four times as likely as white women to have an abortion? What should we make of the fact that 94 percent of all abortion offices are located in metro areas with high black populations? And its not just blacks; Latino women are 2.5 times as likely as white women to have an abortion. Liberals denounce soldiers dying in Iraq as unconscionable and yet consider 1.3 million babies being aborted each year a cause for celebration. Its appalling.
...the black enough foolishness is another gambit liberals have foisted on blacks to ensure electoral obeisance. Its a way to define black authenticity, to keep individuals in predetermined boxes that do not allow for independent thought or action. Sharpton and Jackson are race brokers. Their job is to define black identity and then keep blacks in line to vote to the highest Democratic bidder that serves their purposes. Black enough is just another tool in the bamboozlers toolbox.
Bill Clinton had a black secretary. George W. Bush has a black Secretary of State.

I rest my case!

I think Don Imus bowing down to Al Sharpton is the perfect example of just how powerful identity politics have become. No doubt, what Imus said was deplorable. But is it any worse than what hundreds of rappers say day in and day out in their music? Not even close! Worse still: Does firing Imus do anything to address the near fatherless generation of black children 70 percent of them are growing up in out-of-wedlock homes? No. Does it address the racial gap in learning between black and Latino children and their white and Asian counterparts? No. Sharpton and Jesse Jackson dont want to talk about these things, though. Because that would require moral courage to hold people accountable for their actions. So the race-baiters pound away at Imus while turning a blind eye to the rappers, the breakdown of the two-parent family, and public education crumbling under the weight of liberal teachers unions. Thats not keepin it real. Thats keeping it real stupid.
