Tweet Gracie Gold, Ashley Wagner: USA Olympics Skaters In Glo-Blades? The Sochi Olympics in Russia have bashed from many American journalists and from those on social media (like myself) who aren’t even there. Thus, it should come as no surprise that Russian bloggers would look for any evidence of support of the Sochi Olympics effort. And who can blame...

Tweet Who had Google Glass, or looked like they had it, in 2012? The question comes because Sarah Price, of the Google Glass team was kind enough to respond back to my blog post ranting on the firm for basically fumbling the football when it came to distribution to African Americans (note, I’m specifically referring to black folks here), and also not taking...

Tweet There has been a lot of chatter why UC Berkeley doesn’t have a larger black student base. One recent publication reported that more than half of African-American students who are accepted at Cal don’t go there because “they feel unwelcome.” The LA Times featured a story on Cal freshman Kashawn Campbell, a straight A student from...

Tweet They are coming. The people involved made it very clear that they plan to recruit enough subscribers to start private patrols no matter what the rest of us think about it. They considered the other concerns a “different meeting”. This Thursday night a meeting was called in the the same church where we hold our Neighborhood Crime Prevention...

Tweet Oakland Mayor Jean Quan said this to the National Journal’s Sophie Quinton: “And so, you asked me what my challenge is. Well, my challenge is to let people know what the new Oakland looks like. Somebody just sent me an email saying, ‘Oh, you should have more black police since more than 50 percent of your residents are black.’ And...

Tweet Aaron Alexis, the Navy IT specialist who went on a rampage and killed 12 people at the Washingon Navy Yard on Monday, is part of a new, emerging breed of black male: one I called weak-minded, and willing to take extreme action against others over small issues. In the past, mass killings were considered something African Americans didn’t do, and...

Tweet Now that Tech Crunch Disrupt SF 2013 is history, I’m going to make this quick observation: there were more African Americans there, including Startup Battlefield presentations by two groups that had black entrepreneurs in them, and one, Monsieur, which was entirely black. That’s a good reason to cheer, because it means that the one factor...

Tweet President Obama’s Speech, courtesy of The White House. This is a transcript of the full speech given by President Barack Obama today, Wednesday, August 28th, 2013, and to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of The March On Washington and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have A Dream” speech at the same place at the Lincoln Memorial...

Tweet Famed Oakland Lawyer John Burris, once called “Oakland’s Johnnie Cochran,” once again talked to me about the George Zimmerman Trial – this time about the verdict. On Saturday, a jury of five white women and a Latino woman, found George Zimmerman not guilty of murder. The outcome was shocking to this blogger; not to some others...

Tweet On Tuesday, the U.S. Supreme Court, on a 5-4 vote, in deciding the case Shelby County v. Holder, elected to basically kill the Voting Rights Act, and put the whole deal in the lap of Congress to fix. What the majority of The Supreme Court did was say that the formula for determining the application of Federal approval for a state’s election process...

Tweet Jason Calacanis seems like a good guy, but after accidentally running across a Gawker blog post from February 6, 2013, called “Racism Doesn’t Exist in Tech Because White Tech Blog Millionaire Jason Calacanis Has Never Seen It,” I have to report about his inability to empathize with people of color in tech, and willingness to blow off this...

Tweet The U.S Unemployment Rate is at 7.7 percent, which is the lowest point it has been at since December of 2008, when the rate was 7.3 percent. The 7.7 rate also continues an overall trend of shrinking in the rate since the passage and implementation of the Economic Stimulus package in March of 2009. This is what the Bureau Of Labor Statistics reported...

Tweet Just recapping the Presidential Inauguration 2013 Sunday, and the San Francisco 49ers big-win and right to go to the Super Bowl, before getting dressed to go back to the Capitol for today’s public ceremonies. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fRC1lOqK4Y4 Sunday was this blogger’s day of arrival in Washington, DC. And thanks to sponsors like...

Tweet Oakland bars acting up after 2 AM and not closing down? Yep. Here we go again, sadly, at Room 389 on Grand Avenue. Another Oakland bar where the owners and managers abuse the safety of other patrons just to harbor their friends for late night drinks and whatever after 2 AM. I’ve blogged about this before, and sense the ahem, ah,”security”...

Tweet CNN just had a segment devoted to “Black Nerds” that was just completely annoying. The reason is, Carolyn Costello, the CNN Anchor over the telecast, was trying to push being black and being a nerd as something new, and the guest, some brother with the Tampa Bay Tribune, who’s name I didn’t catch, just went along with it. In his...

Tweet IT’S A DISASTER. Well, not really at Comic Con. I was given the pleasure of previewing a new movie by the LA comedy group called...

Tweet Well, just a few hours after this blogger declared him the “face of modern racism,” John Derbyshire, earlier today the Contributing Editor For The National Review, has been fired. I feel like breaking in song, singing “The witch is dead! The witch is dead! Er, wait. I just did. Here’s my video on John Derbyshire’s racist...

Tweet UPDATE: Mayor Quan Pissed Over April Fools Joke. Fans of Oakland Mayor Ron Dellums believed he was on a good track to recover what some others had said was a failed effort as Mayor of Oakland, and expected him to announce his run to be reelected as far back at late 2009. But, and while Dellums did hold out almost until mid 2010 to make an official announcement,...

Tweet Yes, I am Linsane, which means I am a member of the Jeremy Lin Fan Club, perhaps the fastest growing entity worldwide over the past 10 days or so. Before February 4, Jeremy Lin was an obscure professional basketball player, in his second season of the National Basketball Association (NBA), sitting on the bench (meaning playing very little) of the New York...
