Rosa Parks, a Civil Rights Icon, Passes at 92

Rest in Peace, Ms. Parks, and thank you for showing us true courage in a dark time. May we all learn from your dignity and shining light.

She did show courage - she was also fed up at being humiliated day in and day. The two sentiments make a powerful combination.

Thanks Stolie. I'm sorry I haven't made it over to your place. Tonito pointed it out awhile back.

I don't do much blogging actually. When I do blog, I blog here.

Stop by now and then, Callie - we all miss you.

Thank you for blazing such a wonderful path for strong African-American inspirational women like Conzoleeza Rice.

Brahahahahahaha!!!! Rice wouldn't survive one minute among her own peeps. You must be kidding! Those women would rip those $1000 shoes right off her pointy little feet and beat her over her bucktooth head with 'em!!!

Speaking of spelling a name right. Go back to grade school, Bubba!

That's right, Condoleeza must have wandered too far off the plantation. Bad, bad African-American!! **smack** get back where you belong, as a 'slave' of the Democratic party!!

It sure is ironic that it's the GOP president nominating black women and Hispanics as judges and the Dems who are attacking them as unqualified.

If and when a black woman runs for VP on the GOP ticket, will that be enough to convince any of you? Doubt it.

Make you a sucker doesn't make you qualified. It just makes you a sucker!

Well, that's what I get for rushing that post.

Lovin' it, aren't you the same one, who just a little while ago, said that because you won all these elections you get to nominate anyone you want?

Um, yeah, not like we've had a chance to see what Dems would do after 30 years of your so-called DOMINION!

Callie - Start winning some more elections and go for it. It all starts with convincing the majority of your fellow citizens to see things your way.

The "conservative" movement has reached its apex with the sorriest excuse for a president of the United States that we've ever produced

we've no where to go from here but up.

I think some conservatives are going to start eating some crow!
