Fine, the Black Man Can Be On Top: Obama/Clinton 08

"She is tireless, she is smart. She is capable. And so obviously she'd be on anybody's short list to be a potential vice presidential candidate," said Obama, who inched closer to winning the nomination by routing Clinton in North Carolina and almost defeating her in Indiana on Tuesday.

Some Democrats are saying Obama and Clinton would be a formidable team against Republican John McCain in the race to the November election.

According to a CBS News/New York Times poll released last week, a majority of both Obama and Clinton voters say they would favor a so-called "Dream Ticket" involving both candidates. -Reuters

Yes, that's an inflammatory statement from a radical black bisexual woman who rejoices in all sexualities and laments the obvious statement liberal America has made to women. It's no wonder, the only people of note even vaguely still in favor of Clinton are women, we who wanted a chance too. A split ticket becomes our damn chance, not just yours or mine; I'll continue to fight for this possibility. It might fucking save the world, and I'm almost positive it's what Al Gore wants (or sees as the best possible outcome). The dismissive statements from Obamafawnia* had indicated a snowball chance in hell, and on the other side--firmly entrenched in the Clinton camp are women, queers and scientists. I think one of the only variances between the two is Clinton's push for increased space spending.

As a black woman, I beg of you. I know it might not make a difference, but I wanted to try.

As I've remarked before, it's not unprecedented this level of veracity and it does indicate growth in our democracy. And I think she'll take it, and I think he'll ask. Whether or not it was planned this way from the beginning, I'd hate to speculate. NOT!

*Whiteboy and girl fandom that reeks of possible Uncle Tom ignorance, a'la some of what made Morgan Freeman so popular in Driving Miss Daisy (e.g. redemption from white guilt, salt and pepper hair, sharp but seemingly cheap suits...)

STATEMENT BY THEFAYTH ABOUT THE BISEXUAL COMMUNITY

STATEMENT BY THEFAYTH ABOUT THE BISEXUAL COMMUNITY

By thefayth, BiNet USA President
With additional edits/support from Juba Kalamka, BiNet USA VP

Bisexual communities have been notified of my intent to remove my networks, support and help from those who center white supremacy or practice trans exclusionary radical feminism. Simply put, I do not believe bisexual exclusionary communities (or beci's) to represent the bisexual community.

When I emailed, messaged and tweeted at "Jayne Shea" and messaged her last Tuesday, I did so because I'd seen Seattle continuing to thrive with TERF's, or people who exclude trans people.

It occurred to me, that the same group reported to BiNet USA for allowing cis only women was possibly closely associated with Jayne Shea; this has now been confirmed. And now the rest is history, Black-bisexual-intersex-trans history as I, thefayth, recently became more public in my transition from assumed cis female to known intersex trans multi-gender…

No, I didn’t attempt to steal the bisexual pride flag

No, I didn’t attempt to steal the bisexual pride flag
(but people I knew said I did, so did "the news")
By the artist formerly known as Faith Cheltenham, and the activist formerly known as thefayth

With my stepping away from bisexual community; I am returning home to those who love me; not something always found in bisexual, or LGBTQIA communities. The true upheaval for me personally is most profound in that I turn away from the concept of giving, entirely. thefayth is no more as I must admit I have no faith in humans, if I ever did. Further, I decline to serve with my body, my mind or spirit to provide such faith to humans without benefit to me first and always.

My bigger shame? Direct donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to advocacy between 2004-2017 focused on bi communities worldwide, while also working for free at same time; I should have picked one or the other!

My shame is particular, in that I feel, I may have been treated better if I’d been giving only to peopl…

DEATH OF KHALIL LAWAL BY PHILLY COP JAMES POWELL 

PHOTO OF KHALIL FROM www.socialistalternativephl.org
On January 29th, 2018, after accidentally hitting a pedestrian, Khalil Lawal was approached by Philadelphia Police Officer James Powell—who was off duty at the time—and shot 15 times mere seconds after the encounter. James Powell shot Khalil first at point blank range and then several more times as Khalil was already laid on the ground.

Khalil was unarmed and had not been committing any crimes when Powell approached him from behind with his gun already in hand. Khalil was shot directly in his left eye, his temple, his neck, chest and legs but succumbed to his injuries almost 2 hours after the incident.

In April, the Lawal family discovered that the Philadelphia Police Dept. still had not taken a statement from Powell—about 3 months following the s…
