Al Sharpton's Link to Strom Thurmond?

I read an article in today's paper highlighting Al Sharpton's ancestors were once owned by the Thurmond family. Check this out at:

Sharpton wants DNA Testing
Sharpton's link to the Thurmonds

None of this surprise me as a Black woman, given that the Thurmonds were slaveowners, landowners, and segregationists. We cannot escape our past no matter what people say. We are tied in more ways than one. It's time for America to acknowledge the past connection so that we can move forward.

Outrage over Connecticut College "Student" Article

Women across the nation are outraged and rightfully so over an opinion piece written by a Conneticut college student defending violence against women. It's disgusting read but it's so typical of unprincipled conservative men with a "boys will be boys" mentality. I was angry when I first read the article on Wednesday and still is. Rape is a crime of power, not sex. It's not consensual period. Don't these people ever get it? Click article from Feministe here. Rachel's Tavern has the whole scoop regarding that creep's perverted view here.

Links for 2-7-2007

Huffington Report expose on the racist/sexist Washington Times. Mr. Coombs, the nortorious neo-Confederate, racist, sexist, and an avocate of birth control and abortion for People of Color is exposed for all to see. His views are a danger to America and the world at large. Click here.
Also read, "Hell of a Times" at The Nation magazine. I regret that I didn't post this piece earlier. The people who run that paper are evil and are a danger to America and the world.

Also disturbing are the blackface and "ghetto themed" parties by white students at colleges around the nation. Rachel has a lot of info. regarding such evil parties at her website. Click here, here, and here.
