Males a distinct minority at HBCUs

February 8, 2012
By Ernie Suggs, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
It is not hard for Rodney Perry to stand out on the campus of Clark Atlanta University.  Impeccably dressed in all black and a crisp white shirt, he brushes back his shoulder-length dreadlocks as he mingles and laughs with fellow students on a recent freezing Wednesday morning.
A freshman class president straight out of central casting, Perry is part of a harder-to-find breed on college campuses - particularly historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) - a man.
The New Jim Crow Is An Instant American Classic
 "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!

"Spook Who Sat By the Door" Screening
"Shortly after it opened in theaters, the film vanished altogether - pulled by its distributor, some allege, bowing to pressure from the FBI. The narrative, about disciplined efforts to take down The Man through brain power and armed revolts, was intentionally controversial, and it doesn't take a leap of the imagination to presume the film made those in certain corridors of power nervous enough to "disappear" the movie altogether.

Thomas B. Edsall: Conservatives vs. Liberals: More Than Politics

Mitt Romney Can't Make Rick Santorum Go Away

The Big Story
Mitt Romney will still probably be the Republican nominee, but Tuesday night's caucus and election results proved that voters aren't thrilled about it. He may have done well in Colorado, but former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum, riding a wave of evangelical support, crushed him in the other two contests. Minnesota might be the most embarassing: Romney won the state in 2008 and had racked up the endorsement of former Governor and presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty. Last night, he finished third, behind Ron Paul. READ MORE

National Memo Template 2 300x250
powered by ad choices
While partisan politics hindering routine business in the United States Senate is surely nothing new, Republicans are blocking President Barack Obama's plainly qualified (and uncontroversial) judicial nominees longer than ever -- harkening back to the Southern states' attempts at nullification, or abrogation of federal law, in the prelude to the Civil War.

"This is an experiment under the radar," Noah Feldman, a legal historian and Harvard Law professor, told The National Memo. "It's analogous to the campaign finance absurdity that has emerged in the wake of Citizens United, except the public trusts the government to get this stuff right. The question is how far can they go?" READ MORE

The Obama re-election campaign, insisting it cannot "afford to play by two sets of rules," has announced publicly that it will encourage donations to Priorities USA, its allied Super PAC -- and is working hard to justify the decision in the face of inevitable media (and partisan) blowback.

The National Memo's Editor-in-Chief Joe Conason appeared on MSNBC's Jansing & Co. Tuesday morning to discuss the matter -- and questioned Republican outrage over Obama's choice. READ MORE

Featured Column: Gene Lyons
After being elected in large part because he'd opposed a "dumb" war in Iraq, President Obama finds himself confronting an even dumber one in Iran. Bombing raids alone can't achieve the alleged goal: preventing the Ayatollahs from acquiring nuclear weapons. Slow them down, probably. Stop them, no. Short of a full scale invasion and occupation of a nation three times larger than neighboring Iraq in population and five times larger in land area, that can't be done. READ MORE

Featured Column: Leonard Pitts Jr.
In the history of pro sports, men have done all sorts of things to commemorate their feats on the field or the court. They have flopped like seals, walked like gorillas, head-butted like bighorn sheep. They have high-fived, low-fived, dog-piled, chest-bumped, wept, kissed their own biceps. Yet Tim Tebow becomes a figure of national fascination, consternation and controversy because he takes a knee and bows his head in a gesture of Christian faith? READ MORE

Today In Stupid
Rep. John Fleming (R-LA) rushed to his Facebook page over the weekend, posting a link to an article titled "Planned Parenthood Opens $8 Billion Abortionplex" with the comment, "More on Planned Parenthood, abortion by the wholesale." The problem, of course, is that the article is a parody published by the satirical publication The Onion. The story cited by Fleming claims, among other things, that the Abortionplex can terminate a pregnancy every three seconds, and features such luxurious amenities as the largest rock-climbing wall in Kansas.
