Covering Cinema From All Across The African Diaspora


Now... ain't this a bitch?
Not film related, but worth sharing.

First - about 2 weeks ago, I learned that...

Alan Keyes files a suit in California Superior Court in Sacramento seeking to bar Secretary of State Debra Bowen from certifying to Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger the names of Electors, and from transmitting to each presidential Elector a Certificate of Election, until documentary proof is produced and verified showing that Senator Obama is a “natural born” citizen of the United States.

And now I hear that...

In a highly unusual move, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has asked his colleagues on the court to consider the request of an East Brunswick, N.J. attorney who has filed a lawsuit challenging President-elect Barack Obama’s status as a United States citizen.

Thomas’s action took place after Justice David Souter had rejected a petition known as an application for a stay of writ of certiorari that asked the court to prevent the meeting of the Electoral College on Dec. 15, which will certify Obama as the 44th president of the United States and its first African-American president.

The court has scheduled a Dec. 5 conference on the writ — just 10 days before the Electoral College meets.

What the fuck is going on here?

An immediate thought I had was whether this gives an entirely new meaning to "
black on black crime."

This is the kind of behavior one would expect from some of the nuttier, paler, right-wingers; not from these 2 "brothas."

    You seem to be forgetting that Obama didn't have much black support in the early days of his primaries campaign. Apparently, he wasn't black enough.

    Essentially, the argument seemed to be that he was more AFRICAN then American and so didn't really share the African-American experience/history/culture...

    And so he wasn't deemed qualified enough to run as a black candidate. Which is probably where most previous black presidential candidates failed. America isn't a black country, so you have to elicit white support if you want to get anywhere and make a change. Running for office and crowing about being black achieves very little - neither for the candidate nor for black people in America - other than the nominal role of 'leader of the black community' wherever that place might be located (probably somewhere between Urban Heights and Ghettoville).

    Personally, I think it's plain old jealously. Here are these supposedly upstanding black Americans and yet it took a half African raised by a single white mom and white grandparents, to bring about the first inspiring African-American leader (of America, not just of black people). I'm beginning to think that was why Jesse was crying - dude's out of a job.
