Not Black Like Me

Monday, October 31st, 2011

I don’t know if I’ve ever told you this story, but when I was in law school, I was the Vice-President of the St. Louis University Black Law Student Association.  I know it may sound shocking, but I was.  Now I have never been a joiner of organizations that define themselves by race, however the […]

Living in a LiteBox*

Sunday, October 30th, 2011

Someone asked me what I thought about the recent controversy surrounding LiteBox.  For those of you who may have been out of the loop, LiteBox is the pet project of Bob Yanigahara, an California-based entrepreneur who announced last he was bringing his company to Indianapolis and creating 1,100 jobs in the process.  The problem with […]

When Playing the Race Card, Deal From the Bottom of the Deck

Saturday, October 29th, 2011

The Marion County Democratic Party’s internal polling must not be looking to good these days.  The party is dropping several thousand flyers in predominantly black neighborhoods insinuating that Mayor Greg Ballard is a racist.  I’ve embedded a copy of the flyer in this post (both the front and back).  I got it from my barber […]

Your Arms Are Too Short to Box With God

Thursday, October 27th, 2011

It seems that every time we get near the end of an election season, idiocy goes into overdrive.  Sometimes  it is over the top claims by candidates or ridiculous behavior by campaign staff.  However, this time, someone may have taken things a bit too far. If you read this blog you know several Black pastors […]

Can Kennedy Be Trusted?

Wednesday, October 26th, 2011

Although Democratic Mayoral candidate Melina Kennedy and I don’t agree on much, I always held a certain amount respect for her and her desire to serve the public.  Lately, I have come to the conclusion that Kennedy’s ability to be honest and tell the truth is about the same as the Indianapolis Colts’ ability to […]

Urban Warfare

Monday, October 24th, 2011

The Greg Ballard Mayoral campaign is fighting back against Melina Kennedy’s radio ads on urban radio.  Kennedy has used Black pastors in her commercials to attack the Mayor, so Ballard is fighting back.  In this 0:60 ad to air Tuesday several Black ministers come out in support of Ballard. Ballard Commercial with Black Ministers I […]

The Other Money

Monday, October 24th, 2011

A lot attention was raised this weekend on how much money was raised by Republican Greg Ballard and Democrat Melina Kennedy in the race for Indianapolis Mayor.   However, there wasn’t much reporting on how much the political parties raised nor individual City-County Councilors. I decided to spend some time this weekend looking through reports and […]
