“From 1973 through 2011, nearly 53 million legal abortions occurred. 30% of 53 million means that almost 16 million black babies were aborted during those 39 years. This means an average of almost 408,000 black babies were aborted each year. In comparison, the US Census reported the 2011 estimated deaths among blacks for the year to be only 291,406.”Read More
Hank Aaron broke Babe Ruth’s home run record the old-fashioned way: he earned it.
Unlike Mark McGuire or Barry Bonds, Mr. Aaron never used steroids. He hit an amazing 40 home runs when he was 39 years of age. He added another 42 after his fortieth birthday.
Aaron had to withstand ugly, racist threats from some neanderthals who didn’t like the idea of a black man breaking the Babe’s revered record. So, you can understand if Hank Aaron has something of a chip on his shoulder on issues of race. The 80 year old Hall of Famer said that he holds onto the nasty letters he received …

Two years later, he advanced to a local university and earned a Bachelor’s Degree …Read More
Are we capable of truly having an honest dialogue discussion on race? I wish we could, but, I have my doubts. We don’t talk the same language. We can’t hear each other talk. We see the world through a different prism. When I say “we,” I’m talking in the context of liberal/conservative world views as much as black/white differences. Nonetheless, let us try to begin a constructive conversation. The upside is worth it …Read More
By Tom Quiner Nine out of ten blacks are going to vote for Barack Obama. Maybe more. Conservatives understandably bristle when they see these polls. Suppose 90% of whites voted for Romney, they grouse. Wouldn’t that be proof of racism? Well then, goes the argument, why isn’t it racist for blacks to so overwhelmingly vote…Read More
By Tom Quiner It started with Juan Williams. The likable and liberal Fox News contributor asked Newt Gingrich about his comment that black Americans should demand jobs, not food stamps.
