So What Is The Purpose Of The African American Caucus Of The NC Democratic Party?

So what is the purpose of the African American Caucus of The NC Democratic Party?

I have not seen them do one thing but meet so the President could get rid of the secretary in the group. So was there a meeting held to replace the secretary?

Damn so all they are about is dividing black folks because that is all that took place that day in my opinion.

Strip Clubs in Tampa Are Ready to Cash In on G.O.P. Convention – The New York Times

TAMPA, Fla. — Over at the back door of the 2001 Odyssey, a limo-size tent with flaps — especially designed for discretion and camera-shy guests — is ready to go up. Déjà Vu is welcoming extra “talent” from around the country in its V.I.P. rooms.

And Thee DollHouse is all Americana: women plan to slip out of red, white and blue corsets and offer red, white and blue vodka. The headliner that week is expected to bear an uncanny resemblance to a certain ex-governor from a wilderness state, known for her strong jaw and devotion to guns and God. (More)

FOX NEWS LEADS AMERICA TOWARD HELL AND DESTRUCTION THE CHURCH MUST PAY ATTENTION, SPEAK OUT by Curtis Gatewood Guest Columnist

IF I WERE A WHITE MAN SAYING THINGS WHICH BEST SERVED THE INTERESTS OF "WHITE ONLY", WHILE REPETITIOUSLY BASHING THE FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES  OF AMERICA EVEN WHEN HE IS RIGHT, I WOULD LIKELY BE PROVIDED A PLATFORM BY FOX NEWS WITH THE ABILITY TO REACH 300 MILLION LISTENERS AT LEAST TWICE A DAY, AND A MILLION/S DOLLAR PER YEAR CONTRACT.

CASE AND POINT, ANY NETWORK WHO PROMOTES AND/OR PAYS  MILLIONS IN CONTRACTS TO OBAMA-HATING ANTAGONISTS LIKE SARAH PALIN, SEAN HANNITY, GLEN BECK, RUSH LIMBAUGH, BILL O’REILLY, ETC. IS DESPERATE TO PROMOTE LIES, IGNORANCE, RACE-BAITING, AND GOVERNMENTAL SABOTAGE. 

FOX DOES EVERY THING IMAGINABLE TO HARM THIS U.S. PRESIDENT, INCLUDING REPETITIOUS CODE WORDING WHICH SOUNDS LIKE AN INVITATION TO ASSASSINATION AND/OR CALLS FOR CIVIL WAR, ESPECIALLY NOW THAT WE KNOW THERE ARE INDIVIDUAL FOOLS OUT HERE SUCCESSFULLY ORDERING AND RECEIVING 6,000 PIECES OF DEADLY AMMUNITION.

FOX NEWS ALSO ACTS AS THE FUNDRAISING COMMITTEE FOR GEORGE ZIMMERMAN, THE SHOOTER OF UNARMED BLACK YOUTH TRAYVON MARTIN.  FOX ANXIOUSLY EXPLOITED THE "NEW BLACK PANTHERS" EARLY INVOLVEMENT IN THE CASE ALTHOUGH THEY WERE PART OF A MUCH WIDER  AND DIVERSE RANGE OF CITIZENS SEEKING JUSTICE.  IT CAME AS NO SURPRISE THIS NETWORK WOULD BE THE  FIRST TO PROVIDE ZIMMERMAN THE NATION’S LARGEST  PLATFORM TO TELL HIS BOGUS STORY. 

BLACK MALES WHO ARE PACKED BY THE MILLIONS INSIDE PRISONS THROUGHOUT THE NATION NEVER GET THE OPPORTUNITY TO TELL THEIR SIDE OF THE STORY.  THEY ARE INSTEAD PAINTED WITH THE BROAD BRUSH OF "FAILURE", BLACK THUGGERY, AND WRITTEN  OFF AS HEARTLESS CRIMINALS. 

WHILE NO ONE IN HIS/HER RIGHT MIND BELIEVES ZIMMERMAN’S REVISIONIST RECOLLECTION OF THE "FACTS" WHICH TOTALLY CONTRADICT WHAT HE WAS RECORDED AS SAYING ON THE  911 CALL, THESE EPISODES ARE DESIGNED TO SHAPE ZIMMERMAN’S  STANDING IN THE  COURT OF PUBLIC OPINION AND POSSIBLY CREATE A PUBLIC DISTURBANCE IF ZIMMERMAN IS RIGHTFULLY CONVICTED. 

I WOULD IMAGINE ZIMMERMAN’S CURRENT LIST OF DONORS CONSISTS OF A DISPROPORTIONATE NUMBER OF WHITE SUPREMACISTS AND OTHERS WHO THEMSELVES SHOULD BE INCARCERATED.  THOSE WHO RUSH TO FINANCIALLY SUPPORT THE KILLER OF A DEAD UNARMED YOUTH CARRYING SKITTLES AND ICE TEA, REPRESENT A DANGEROUS AND UGLY SIDE OF AMERICA THAT SHOULD NOT BE TAKEN LIGHTLY. .

CONSEQUENTLY, FOX IS MOVING FULL SPEED TOWARD SERVING AS THE  CENTRAL  COMMAND CENTER FOR DOMESTIC TERRORISM RIGHT HERE ON AMERICAN SOIL.  WHETHER IT IS JUST PLAIN RACISM OR  WHETHER FOX IS BEING INFLUENCED/SUPPORTED BY A FOREIGN ENEMY, FOX CROSSED THE LINE OF "FREEDOM OF SPEECH" LONG AGO AND HAVE SINCE ENTERED THE GUTTER OF NATIONAL/GOVERNMENTAL BETRAYAL.  SPEWING "SPEECH" CAPABLE OF INCITING VIOLENT RACE RIOTS, DOMESTIC TERROR, AND/OR INSTIGATING A VIOLENT OVERTHROW OF THE GOVERNMENT ARE BECOMING MORE THE NORM AT FOX. 

WE HAVE SEEN THIS MOVIE BEFORE.  IN 1898, REPETITIOUS AND IMFLAMATORY RACIST MEDIA COMMENTARY PLAYED A MAJOR ROLE IN BRINGING TO FRUITION THE NATION’S FIRST AND ONLY COUPE D’ETAT WHILE KILLING/DISPLACING HUNDREDS OF SUCCESSFUL AFRICAN AMERICANS.  FOX NEWS IS POSITIONED TO DO THE SAME ON A NATIONAL/LARGER SCALE IF THERE IS NO SERIOUS INTERVENTION.

WHILE CHURCHES ARE  QUICK TO KICK GAYS MERCILESSLY; DENOUNCE TROUBLED BLACK YOUTH WITHOUT HESITATION; BLAST POOR “SINNERS” WHO HAVE LITTLE OR  NO POWER; BUT CHURCHES CONTINOUSLY TURN A BLIND-EYE TO EVERY FORM OF RACISM IMAGINABLE NO MATTER HOW CONSPICUOUSLY DEGRADING, ENSLAVING, OR DEADLY IN ITS AIM TOWARD THE "LEAST OF THESE." 

CHURCHES WHICH PRETEND AS IF RACISM TARGETS THE OPPRESSED DOES NOT EXIST ARE AIDING AND ABETTING THE EVIL FORCES OF RACISM. ALL TOO OFTEN, CHURCHES OPENLY PUT "PROSPERITY" BEFORE TRUTH. BUT TODAY’S CHURCH MUST ASK THEMSELVES THE SAME THING JESUS ASKED – "FOR WHAT IS A MAN PROFITTED IF HE GAINS THE WHOLE WORLD AND LOSES HIS OWN SOUL."  FOX NEWS HAS BECOME THE  MOST APPARENT EXAMPLE OF A POWERFUL ENTITY WHO DANGEROUSLY LOST ITS SOUL IN SEARCH OF RATINGS AND PROFITS.  CONSEQUENTLY, FOX NEWS IS IN THE PROCESS OF LEADING AMERICA TO HELL AND DESTRUCTION AS THE  CHURCH SITS SILENTLY AND GOES ALONG FOR  THE RIDE.
