Greetings on-line family!  

I start of our E-Newsletter this week on a sad note because of the horror China is experience due to the sizable earthquake that struck there region earlier this week.  It has only been a few days since I last spoke with you via our newsletter and mentioned the many disasters taking place around the world, and here it is we are seeing the horror of this incredible earthquake that measured 7.9 on the Richter Scale.  It's awful witnessing the tears and sadness of the mothers who are grieving for their babies (who are buried under the collapsed schools); entire families just mourning for their loved ones who have been killed; and the suffering of many who were able to miraculously survive this quake with just injuries and without losing their lives.  What is going on...I ask again - with these many astounding natural disasters that is occurring around the world?  

This earthquake was so powerful that it flattened schools, shops, buildings and most importantly homes all across the region of China.  So many people are missing, people from entire villages and towns who are either dead or buried alive.  The most recent estimates state that the official numerical figure of the Thousands who are dead is 19,509 and counting.  There is approximately 12,300 who are still buried under debris and buildings, 14,000 are missing and about 102,100 have sustained injuries.  As you can imagine the aftershocks are hitting rapidly causing lots of folks to sleep outside of their homes in inclement weather, scared that if something else happens they would become trapped.

My heartfelt sympathy goes out to the many suffering from this disaster, and may the many who lost their life rest in peace.  I pray that the officials of China continue rescuing its citizens and most importantly pray that they are given the strength to do this in a timely manner.  CLICK HERE to read all the details - courtesy of Associated Press written by

This has been an interesting and exciting week in Politics.  Senator Hilary Clinton had an enormous win on Tuesday in the West Virginia primary, and of course she must be congratulated!  She received 67% of the votes compared to Senator Obama's 28%, which is a huge win!!!  Senator Clinton received 23 Delegates (20 Pledged and 3 Super) and Senator Obama gained 10 delegates (8 Pledged and 2 Super).  

This West Virginia Primary brought a lot of issues to mind after hearing Senator Clinton's interview with USA Today regarding the folks who are voting for her in West Virginia.  There is indeed a lot of work to be done regarding race.  Read about Senator Clinton's Interview with USA Today - Courtesy of MSNBC.  Please CLICK HERE!


I'm sure by now you know last weekend Senator Barack Obama gained several Super Delegates and surpassed Senator Clinton, now he is ahead with 17 Superdelegates.  Therefore, as of today the total count in this interesting race is as follows per CNN: Senator Obama: 1899 (1608 Pledged and 291 Superdelegates); and Senator Clinton 1719 (1445 Pledged and 274 Superdelegates).

Some of the Superdelegates who endorsed Senator Obama stated their reasons why they endorsed him, and I have place some of their comments below. 

"After careful consideration, I have reached the conclusion that Barack Obama can best bring about the change that our country so desperately wants and needs."
- Rep. Donald Payne (NJ-10)

"He has shown he can connect with Democrats, Republicans and independents across this country."

- Kevin Rodriquez (VI)

"It's time to come together as a party and support Sen. Obama and prepare for a victory against John McCain in November."

- Del. Jennifer McClellan (VA-71)

The most exciting thing that happened this week was Senator John Edwards (Democratic Candidate who was campaigning for the nomination, but pulled out some months ago) endorsed Senator Obama.  This is extremely shocking, but pretty tremendous! 

Senator Edwards during his endorsement speech in Grand Rapids, Michigan this past Wednesday stated "We are here tonight because the Democratic voters have made their choice, and so have I."  He further stated Obama "stands with me in a fight to cut poverty in half within 10 years", and that Senator Obama is "one man who knows in his heart that it is time to create one America, not two"   WONDERFUL SPEECH!  (Listen and View the entire speech below)

Now 3 of Senator Edwards Superdelegates have endorsed Senator Obama.  They are Reps. James McDermott of Washington and Henry Waxman and Howard Berman both of California.  Rep. McDermott stated: "I believe now is the time to unite behind Barack Obama so we can be in the strongest place possible to win in November".

Additionally, the United Steelworkers Union announced it would now support Senator Obama (they were backing Senator Edwards.)  This Union has 600,000 active members - blue color workers.

It's certain now that Senator Obama is extremely close to clinching the Democratic Nomination!!!  He is definitely on the road to becoming the next President of the United States.


I'm still hearing a lot of talk about the Michigan and Florida votes being counted.  I just don't understand how folks feel they need to defy the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and rewrite its rules, especially since it is so near to the "end of the game".  All candidates agreed to adhere to these rules and with the sanctions set forth on Michigan and Florida (to strip them of their delegates due to them holding their primaries early).  How could they now want to change things, which will result in moving up the total delegates needed to win the nomination to 2210 instead of 2025 (as it is now)?  Again, rules that all the candidates agreed to adhere to (and some did.)  I understand on May 31st, the DNC will have hearings on this issue, and will come up with a plan on how to resolve the fact that the voters in Michigan and Florida are not disenfranchised.  I guess we will have to wait and see what they come up with.  I do hope it will be a FAIR solution to this matter.

I see now the Republicans, actually President Bush and Senator McCain are beginning to severely attacking Senator Obama.  During a speech the President made in Jerusalem for Israel's 60th anniversary, Bush suggested that some Democrats were acting in the same way some Western leaders did when they appeased Hitler in the "runup" to World War II.  He further called it a "foolish delusion" to think the U.S. can negotiate with terrorists (a blatant attack on Obama)  Part of his speech is listed below, but you can read all about this speech by CLICKING HERE TO READ THE ENTIRE ARTICLE - Courtesy of CNN: . Senator McCain wholeheartedly endorsed President Bush's veiled rebuke on Senator Obama that talking to terrorists and radicals" was no different than appeasing Hitler and the Nazis.

"As Nazi tanks crossed into Poland in 1939, an American senator declared: 'Lord, if only I could have talked to Hitler, all of this might have been avoided.' We have an obligation to call this what it is: the false comfort of appeasement, which has been repeatedly discredited by history," he said while speaking to Israel's parliament, the Knesset.

Finally, I was surprised to hear John McCain stated in a speech he gave in Columbus, Ohio, on May 15th; that the Iraq war can be won by 2013 and that most of the troops will be home by then as well (2013),  He further stated he envisions Osama bin Laden will be dead or captured during his first term as President.  Can you believe he stated the troops may be home in 2013?  THIS IS CRAZY!!!!  CLICK HERE TO HEAR SOME OF THIS SPEECH - Courtesy of NPR [3 min 43 sec] 


Remember this coming Tuesday, May 20th; Kentucky and Oregon will hold their primaries and Idaho's primary is on May 27th.  Please do go out and vote...vote...vote!!!!

As these primaries approach, please keep talking, sharing and coming up with solutions regarding the important "RACE" issue.  

I leave you with the same statement I have left you with every week.  "Please remember to judge Senator Obama on his words, his actions and the content of his character.   Kindly continue standing up and not accepting the same old tactics, rhetoric and old politics.  I encourage you to continue talking about race and the hurtful issues you might have experienced throughout life.  Most importantly let's continue building this movement and voting for Senator Barack Obama".  

With your support and votes Senator Obama will continue succeeding. We know he is "the one"..."the one" who absolutely has the ability and wisdom to move us forward;  "the one" who has the answers to all of the many issues plaguing America currently, and we know he is "the one" who can take us forward toward that change we are seeking in a positive manner.  I hope you are looking forward to the overall change as I am, so lets continue making history together!!!!"

Before I close I want to share with you an important correspondence I received from one of our On-Line Family, which was pretty thought provoking.  He wanted me to clarify some statements I made in my above weekly closing remarks about Senator Obama.  His questions are as follows: (1) "Building this movement" and voting for Obama - What movement? (2) "To move us forward" - "us"?  Who is us? and finally he stated (3) "I think, taken together, your statements are encouraging "race and separatism".  Is it because Barack Obama is Black?

Wow, I must say this gentleman really made me "check" myself for a minute.  Anyway, I think I need to share my response to him with you, so you too are clear on my position.

"Us"!   No Sir "Us" is not referring to black.  Therefore, using "Us" in this commentary does not talk about race. 

 "Us" is the people of this United States of America who cares about change in Government [the "movement" refers to this as well]; and Obama is indeed a candidate of change and represents all people.  He is new to the Government process and he has the ability to bring all people together (since he is of an interracial conception).  No one can logically say Obama is black because he is just as much white as he is black. (Probably more white than black since he was raised by his white mom and white grandmother and granddad).

Also, one of the biggest problems in America is race no matter how much you/we might want to overlook that issue.  It’s extremely evident when you turn on the TV or the Radio and hear all the racist remarks the hosts and commentators say about this political race and the one interracial candidate.  I even hear Mrs. Clinton now saying she has the “white blue color voters” and the “white uneducated voters” in her most recent speeches.  So no matter what, race is very much an issue and definitely alive in this campaign. 

This race is a major wound that is tearing America apart, and since Obama is a part of the black and white world (which is the base of the wound).  He therefore, has the ability to close and heal this terrible wound that flows through the foundation of America. 

We must not forget though, for 200 years America has been ruled by white folks, even though America is suppose to be a melting pot for all races.  It is only logical - since black people built this country through slave labor, and it is only fair that black folks receive equal representation in the leadership of this county.

If you think this is racist and insights separatism…so be it.  Then, you must ask yourself who is really the racist?

 

 

In closing keep in your prayers the people of China, the people of Myanmar (where cyclone "Nergis" slammed into last week); the people here in America who have lost everything in the fires in Florida and in the latest Tornadoes.  Lets pray that these natural disasters cease!!!!
