Federal judge sends racist Obama email, files complaint against himself, apologizes

Federal judge sends racist Obama email, files complaint against himself, apologizes:

An appellate court will conduct a judicial misconduct review of a federal judge who sent an email to friends that contained a racist joke involving bestiality and President Barack Obama's mother.

I guess this happened because he offended the President of the United States. What happens when a Federal Judge misrepresents their office in other cases as suggested in my litigation in front of Magistrate Judge Maria Valdez? Small people like myself have to "pay" to go to the Appellate court...

13-Year-Old Black Girl in Rochester, New York Persecuted and Forced Out of School for Challenging White Teachers to Teach and for Challenging Her Black Classmates to Learn with Essay on Frederick Douglass 
Black Star Logo
 
In her essay, Jada Williams quotes part of the scene where Frederick Douglass' slave master catches his wife teaching then slave Frederick to read and tells her he (Frederick) would be useless as a slave if he were able to read. 
 
Miss Williams quoted Douglass quoting the slave master: "If you teach that nigger how to read, there will be no keeping him. It will forever unfit him to be a slave. He would at once become unmanageable, and of no value to his master."  She reflected on how the "white teachers" do not have enough control of the classroom to successfully teach the minority students in Rochester.  She sees the fact that so many of the other "so-called 'unteachable'" students aren't learning to read as a form of modern-day slavery. Their illiteracy holds them back in society. 
 
Her call to action was then in her summary: "A grand price was paid in order for us to be where we are today; but in my mind we should be a lot further, so again I encourage the white teachers to instruct and I encourage my people to not just be a student, but become a learner."

Please contact Rochester Superintendent of Public Schools Vargas Bolgen at bolgen.vargas@rcsdk12.org  or call (585) 262-8100 to voice your concerns about Ms. Jada Williams being force out of school because she wants her classmates to learn.

Students Suspended for Trying to Improve 
Prince Georges County, Maryland High School
 
Over 300 mostly Black and Latino students at Northwestern High School in Prince George's County Maryland planned a walkout and rally as part of the National Student Day of Action to protest unsanitary conditions in their school, enormous class sizes, cuts to the ESOL program, and denial of promised pay raises for their teachers.
 
The students also were asking for more teacher/parent/student input in the curriculum and demanding an apology for a group of Filipino teachers who were fired and deported after not having their work visas renewed.
 
The Administration at Northwestern discovered the walkout plan early in the day by trolling Twitter and put the school on lockdown. Police blocked the doors and canine units waited in the school's parking lot.
 
They held student leaders in the Principal's office all day, threatened them with expulsion, and at the end of the day suspended four students for 5 days requiring that when they return their parents must accompany them to classes all day.
 
 
Contact Superintendent William R. Hite, Jr., Ed.D., at 301-952-6008 or email william.hite@pgcps.org to register your support for suspended students.

What Research Says:
 
Researchers Karen Smith Conway, professor of economics at the University of New Hampshire, and her colleague Andrew Houtenville,Black Star Logo senior research associate at New Editions Consulting, found that parental involvement has a strong, positive effect on student achievement.  "Parental effort is consistently associated with higher levels of achievement, and the magnitude of the effect of parental effort is substantial. We found that schools would need to increase per-pupil spending by more than $1,000 in order to achieve the same results that are gained with parental involvement," Conway said.
 
Nomination forms are due in schools Thursday, March 8, 2012 by 3:00pm.

Black Star LogoWhen a girl's first date is with her father, all other men will have to measure up to that standard.  For many girls, a good relationship with their father leads to improved educational, social and physical outcomes. 
 
Fathers' investment in their daughters helps girls to be more confident, emotionally balanced and independent. The best way to guarantee that your daughter will have the high self-esteem necessary to choose a good mate is for you, her father, to be the model for her choice and decision making.

Chinese School Creates New Standards for "Cool" and "Hip"
Black Star Logo 
ZHENGZHOU - A high school in Central China's Henan province recently set a code of behavior for students to become "macho boys" and "cute and clever girls", which has become a hot topic among local teachers and students.
 
Zhengzhou No 18 High School, which specializes in art education, granted the titles "macho boys" and "cute and clever girls" to 44 students - 22 boys and 22 girls - at the beginning of the new semester, so other students would emulate their behavior.
 
Duan Yaping, 44, the school principal, said some students used to think that misbehavior like smoking would make them look cool, so the school has chosen role models for them, according to a report of Zhengzhou-based Henan Business News.

Michelle Alexander and The New Jim Crow
Social Justice Movement Arrive in Nebraska
on Saturday, March 10, 2010 
 
People in Omaha, Lincoln, North Platte and Grand Island, Nebraska;  Sioux City, Des Moines, Davenport and Iowa City, Iowa; Sioux Falls, South Dakota; Minneapolis and Rochester, Minnesota; St. Joseph and Kansas City, Missouri; Overland Park, Topeka and Kansas City, Kansas; Cheyenne, Wyoming; and Denver, Colorado are encouraged to attend this event.  
 
"Much like a great explorer, Michelle Alexander has discovered another America--a bizarro world where prejudice and discrimination have replaced truth and justice. An America that is as intent on destroying young Black men as it is at proclaiming its passion for freedom and fairness. Even some of the most conscious and best-intentioned Americans can't see The New Jim Crow and their roles in supporting it. Michelle Alexander holds a mirror up to America and reveals a monster!"  - Phillip Jackson, The Black Star Project

Cenk Uygur: A Challenge to Rush: Prove Your Ratings
How many listeners does Rush Limbaugh have? Well, in the press there are only two numbers you'll ever see -- 20 million or 15 million. I've got news for you -- those numbers are a total fabrication.
Carolyn Maloney: The GOP Rush to Deny Coverage of Birth Control
I would like to suggest to our Republican friends that they drop the pretense that the subject is religious freedom. It is not. Birth control is directly and undeniably related to women's health.
Leo W. Gerard: American Workers: The Best Bet
Three years later, after President Obama placed his faith in workers, the nation's economic outlook is brighter. As is that of GM and Chrysler. President Obama wagered on American workers. And it paid off.
Menachem Rosensaft: Repudiating Limbaugh: A Matter of Integrity, Not Politics
It would behoove every one of us, especially those of us who are husbands, fathers of daughters or who have women as friends and colleagues, to also ask ourselves one simple question before we vote for anyone: Has he or she been willing to stand up to the likes of Rush Limbaugh?

Why Obama Is Winning Ohio

THE BIG STORY, BY JOE CONASON
When President Obama disparaged "loose talk about war" against the theocratic regime in Tehran, he wasn't minimizing the consequences of atomic weapons in the hands of the mullahs. The danger of terrorists acquiring a bomb would be multiplied by a regional arms race. The international nonproliferation regime would be crippled if not destroyed. The prestige of the United States would suffer fresh damage and yes, Israel would be gravely threatened.

Yet it is difficult to understand why anyone -- in Washington, Jerusalem, or anywhere else -- would dispute his view that sanctions, covert action, and diplomatic engagement should be exhausted before resorting to bombs and missiles. READ MORE

STUPID TUESDAY
The Republican presidential candidates and a few independent groups have spent nearly $10 million on television and radio ads in seven states that will vote on Super Tuesday. The Mitt Romney-backing Restore Our Future Super PAC, which is running spots criticizing Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich, accounts for more than half that total. The infusion of cash into this coming week's contests has swelled total ad spending in the GOP presidential race so far to more than $75 million. READ MORE

FEATURED COLUMN: LEONARD PITTS JR.
A few days ago, a U.S. Marine returned to the States after six months in Afghanistan. Spotting his new honey among the people waiting, he rushed forward and planted an enthusiastic kiss -- their first kiss, as it turns out. A friend snapped a picture and posted it on Facebook.

And all heck broke loose. READ MORE

FEATURED COLUMN: E.J. DIONNE
Kevin DeWine, Ohio's Republican state chairman, knows what the right formula is. "The eventual nominee would do well to hone his economic message in the Ohio primary," DeWine said in an interview. What he is looking for is not a philosophical disquisition, but "a mainstream" conversation. He is far too loyal a Republican to say so, but thus far the campaign seems to have been more about social issues -- and Santorum's record on earmarks -- than about restoring middle-class living standards.

BIRTH CONTROL
Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh apologized Saturday to a Georgetown University law student he had branded a "slut" and "prostitute," after advertisers began withdrawing from the show. His apology -- which did not mention that he doubled down on insulting Sandra Fluke after the first waves of criticism -- failed to stop the advertising exodus from his program. "Even though Mr. Limbaugh has now issued an apology, we have nonetheless decided to withdraw our advertising from his show," Carbonite CEO David Friend said on his company's Facebook page. "We hope that our action, along with the other advertisers who have already withdrawn their ads, will ultimately contribute to a more civilized public discourse." READ MORE

COLD FRONT
Vladimir Putin scored a decisive victory in Russia's presidential election Sunday to return to the Kremlin and extend his hold on power for six more years. His eyes brimming with tears, he defiantly proclaimed to a sea of supporters that they had triumphed over opponents intent on "destroying Russia's statehood and usurping power." Accounts by independent observers of extensive vote-rigging, however, looked set to strengthen the resolve of opposition forces whose unprecedented protests in recent months have posed the first serious challenge to Putin's heavy-handed rule. Another huge demonstration was set for Monday evening in central Moscow. READ MORE
