Political racism and Pres. Barack Obama


On Feb. 1, 2012, the Huffington Post reported that Republican Kansas House Speaker Mike O’Neal forwarded an email stating the following:

“At last — I can honestly voice a Biblical prayer for our president! Look it up — it is word for word! Let us all bow our heads and pray. Brothers and Sisters, can I get an AMEN?

Psalms 109:8 – May his days be few; may another take his place of leadership. May his children be fatherless and his wife a widow. May his children be wandering beggars; may they be driven from their ruined homes. May a creditor seize all he has; may strangers plunder the fruits of his labor. May no one extend kindness to him or take pity on his fatherless children.”

The standard of beauty trends towards a more ethnic look

Women who desire a more “exotic” appearance are looking to the fashion world’s growing multi-culturalism for inspiration.

There was a time when the Caucasian girl-next-door looks of Christie Brinkley, Cindy Crawford and more recently Kate Moss dominated the fashion pages. Then came new fashion icons: Naomi Campbell, Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce – and then Giselle, Kim Kardashian and Shakira.
