Bishop Desmond Tutu Announces Changes in South African Aids Policy

Your Black World Reports

Desmond Tutu -- former Anglican Archbishop of Cape Town, South Africa -- says South Africa should not be embarrassed about its policies to combat AIDS. 

"For many years we were embarrassed in international gatherings for what we were not doing in fighting AIDS. We therefore thank the Minister of Health, Aaron Motsoaledi, for the change in policy....It is a very rare privilege and honor for us the older ones to say we are passing the baton to you the young to carry on with the fight against this pandemic."  - Desmond Tutu

Glenn Beck Says “Let’s kill Obama, I mean Bin Laden”

Dr.  Boyce Watkins, Your Black World

In yet another interesting Fox News public gaffe, Glenn Beck recently made a comment about killing President Obama, by mistakenly making reference to the president when discussing Osama Bin Laden.

During one of his monologues, Beck was arguing that President Obama came off as arrogant in his speech about the death of Bin Laden, and that he doesn’t deserve as much credit as the troops who’ve been looking for Bin Laden since 2001.

Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson Speak on the Death of Osama Bin Laden

by Dr. Boyce Watkins, YourBlackWorld.comScholarship in Action 

I was on the radio today with Rev. Al Sharpton.  Of course the topic of discussion was the death of Osama Bin Laden.  The Reverend had some interesting guests on the show, including a woman who was in the building when the towers went down in 2001.  Sharpton, as a New Yorker, had some interesting thoughts about the situation, especially as it pertains to the Obama presidency.

Dr. Wilmer Leon: Lessons Learned from Osama Bin Laden

 

 

By

Dr. Wilmer Leon 

President Obama announced this past Sunday evening that “al-Qaida’s leader and symbol” Osama bin Laden had been killed, “Tonight I can report to the American people and the world that the United States has conducted an operation that killed Osama bin Laden…” This is a good thing. President Obama can now fly on to the deck the USS Abraham Lincoln and stand under the “Mission Accomplished” banner that his predecessor prematurely unfurled on October 29, 2003.

Black Unemployment More than Double Whites for Michigan Residents

 

Your Black World reports

A recent report by the Economic Policy Institute has revealed that the economic situation for African Americans is disproportionately bad for the state of Michigan.  According to the report, African Americans in Michigan have had an unemployment rate above 20 percent for every quarter since the start of 2009. Their 2010 annual unemployment rate was 23.4%.  White Michigan residents currently enjoy an unemployment rate of only 9.5% for last quarter.

The conditions are so bad that the lowest black unemployment rate since 2008 (12.2%) is only slightly lower than the highest unemployment conditions experienced by whites in Michigan (12.7%).  So, their terrible times are our good times and our horrible times don’t get attention from political leaders whatsoever.

Perhaps we don’t live in a post-racial America after all, since the unemployment picture is clearly different for blacks and whites.
