"There is no other explanation for the cowardly Republican decision not to hold a hearing on President Obama’s budget. Holding a hearing on the President’s budget is a courtesy that goes back decades. The only reason not to hold a hearing on Obama’s budget is to disrespect the president.
Has this level of DISRESPECT EVER happened to another president prior to President Obama? NO!
Is President Obams's administration beset by scandal? NO!
Has President Obama EVER disrespected any Republicant member of Congress—House or Senate? NO!
Has President Obama ever called Republicants Liars even if they are? NO!
Has President Obama ever met with political cronies in dastardly meetings to undercut Republicant programs? NO!
Has the Republicant Party in the last 7 years EVER submitted a program or a plan or worked with President Obama for the good of the American People? NO!
So let's call this disrespect what it is. The constant in all of this Republicant BS is President Obama is Black and the lot of Republicants ARE WHITE with the exception of a few Black Republicant Lackey Dogs who are always seen and not heard. President Obama is Disrespected by White Republicants in Congress and they, in turn, encourage their White constituents —by their actions— to also disrespect the President.
Albert Einstein and Racism:
In fact, many significant details are missing from the numerous studies of Einstein’s life and work, most of them having to do with Einstein's opposition to racism and his relationships with African Americans.
Einstein continued to support progressive causes through the 1950s, when the pressure of anti-Communist witch hunts made it dangerous to do so. Another example of Einstein using his prestige to help a prominent African American occurred in 1951, when the 83-year-old W.E.B. Du Bois, a founder of the NAACP, was indicted by the federal government for failing to register as a "foreign agent" as a consequence of circulating the pro-SovietStockholm Peace Petition. Einstein offered to appear as a character witness for Du Bois, which convinced the judge to drop the case.
In the wake of the monumental effort to digitize Einstein's life and genius for the masses, let's hope that more of us will acknowledge Einstein's greatness as a champion of human and civil rights for African-Americans as one of his greatest contributions to the world.
This unique book is the first to bring together a wealth of writings by Einstein on the topic of race. Although his activism in this area is less well known than his efforts on behalf of international peace and scientific cooperation, he spoke out vigorously against racism both in the United States and around the world.
In May 1946, Einstein made a rare public appearance outside of Princeton, New Jersey (where he lived and worked in the latter part of his life), when he traveled to the campus of Pennsylvania's Lincoln University, the United States' first degree-granting black university, to take part in a ceremony conferring upon him the honorary degree of doctor of laws. Prior to accepting that degree, he delivered a ten-minute speech to the assembled audience in which he called upon the United States to take a leading role in preventing another world war and denounced the practice of segregation. Because mainstream U.S. newspapers reported little or nothing about the event, a full transcript of Einstein's speech that day does not exist — the only existing record of his words is a few excerpts pieced together from quotes reproduced in coverage by the black press:
The United Nations has no power to prevent war, but it can try to avoid another war. The U.N. will be effective only if no one neglects his duty in his private environment. If he does, he is responsible for the death of our children in a future war.
My trip to this institution was in behalf of a worthwhile cause. There is a separation of colored people from white people in the United States. That separation is not a disease of colored people. It is a disease of white people. I do not intend to be quiet about it.
The situation of mankind today is like that of a little child who has a sharp knife and plays with it. There is no effective defense against the atomic bomb … It can not only destroy a city but it can destroy the very earth on which that city stood.
As the authors of Einstein on Race and Racism noted, Einstein's comments about segregation at Lincoln University reflected his own experiences in both his native Germany and his adopted home in the United States and were part of a pattern of his attempting to ameliorate the effects of discrimination:
"Einstein realized that African Americans in Princeton were treated like Jews in Germany," said Taylor. "The town was strictly segregated. There was no high school that blacks could go to until the 1940s."
Einstein’s response to the racism and segregation he found in Princeton (Paul Robeson, who was born in Princeton, called it "the northernmost town in the South") was to cultivate relationships in the town's African-American community. Jerome and Taylor interviewed members of that community who still remember the white-haired, disheveled figure of Einstein strolling through their streets, stopping to chat with the inhabitants, and handing out candy to local children.
One woman remembered that Einstein paid the college tuition of a young man from the community. Another said that he invited Marian Anderson to stay at his home when the singer was refused a room at the Nassau Inn.
To sum it up, Einstein was making the point that segregation was not a 'Black problem', but a White problem in that it was born of a diseased mindset much like what became of Nazi Germany.

THIS ARTICLE SHOWS WHITE RACISM AND WHITE SUPREMACY AND WHITE HATRED OF "UPPITY NIGGERS" AT ITS WORST … WHICH IS COMMONPLACE USUAL FOR AMERICA.
VIOLENCE DIRECTED AT DR. MELISSA HARRIS-PERRY FOR NO REASON OTHER THAN YOU CAN AND GET AWAY WITH IT.
ONCE AGAIN, AMERICA LOVES TO SWEEP RACISM AND WHITE CORE RACIST ATTITUDES UNDER THE RUG. THEY WILL NOT STAY THERE!

Failed BLACK Logic after THEIR BLACKNESS put money in their pocket…
Blacks who proclaim RACE does not make a difference, yet they are hosting a TV show or they got their role on a TV show or they got a role in a movie specifically because they are Black. Do you think you can hide your hue of skin? Do you understand you are there because the suits—the bottom line boys—want to attract people who look like me to watch you?

THIS IS ABOUT POISONING BLACK PEOPLE. AND WHITE AMERICA SAYS NOTHING.
Another "Legacy" of American Racism. Unfortunately there is still no REAL OUTCRY from WHITE AMERICA because Flint is a predominantly Black City. "Kill a town of NIggers and their children. Who cares? It's OK."
AND FORGET ABOUT THE NATIONAL MEDIA. They are only concerned with their ratings. So incessantly reporting on the lunatic rantings of a wealthy White racist running for president is more important than reporting on a Republicant Governor and his poisoning and killing an entire city. This story DID NOT get any traction until Rachel Maddow started reporting on the story and the resulting and the inevitable genocide. Prior to that time everyone saw Murdering Governor Rick Snyder as some White Knight saving the citizens of Michigan from themselves …and especially in the Black cities of Detroit and Flint. More White folks saving the Coloreds from themselves. AMERICA!

President Obama DOES NOT have to repair the Breach in this country between Republicants and Democrats OR A SO-CALLED BREACH BETWEEN BLACKS AND WHITES. The Breach between Whites and Blacks was already there and a Black President inflamed the already simmering RACISM of America's Whites. Nothing New or surprising.
This is a national disgrace…a national scandal…environmental racism at its worst…and it is criminal. SOMEONE…and a lot of someones…should go to jail. Unfortunately, we know the lead laced Flint River used for drinking water as directed by the Governor et all will cause brain damage. It is irreversible and will occur in many Black children since Flint is 60 per cent Black. Unfortunately we have to wait and see how bad….yet we know the brain damage will happen….and we know it will be bad. QUESTION…DOES ANYONE GIVE A DAMN? The Republicant Governor of Michigan and his Republicant staff and the Republicant Legislature apparently DO NOT!

Anti-racism activist & educator Jane Elliot speaks to white citizens on receiving the same treatment as black citizens. "I want every white person in this room, who would be happy to be treated as this society in general treats our citizens, our black citizens. If you as a white person would be happy to receive the same treatment that our black citizens do in this society – please stand! – You didn't understand the directions. If you white folks want to be treated the way blacks are in this society – stand! – Nobody is standing here. That says very plainly that you know what's happening. You know you don't want it for you. I want to know why you are so willing to accept it or to allow it to happen for others." – Jane Elliot.
