Dem’s $30,000 A Plate Dinner At Red Rooster (update)
Posted on March 28, 2011 by Harlem World| Leave a comment
Here’s an update on President Obama and the Democratic National Committee‘s $30,000 plate dinner fundraiser at Red Rooster by Eddie Gehman Kohan at Obama Foodorama. Chef Marcus Samuelsson joins only a handful of chefs who have received repeat business from President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama. On Tuesday evening, he’ll be getting more, when the President headlines a Democratic National Committee fundraiser at Samuelsson’s hotspot, the Red Rooster restaurant on Lenox Avenue at 126th Street in Harlem.

The trip will be Mr. Obama’s first visit to Harlem since becoming president, though he’s visited the Apollo Theater before he was elected. Open for less than four months, Samuelsson’s and Rooster chef Andrea Bergquist American comfort-food menu is meant to be affordable, with entrees ranging from $16-$24. On Tuesday, prices will be abit higher: $30,800 per person, only about fifty people are expected.

lol they probably aren't invited anyway...

the rest of the article is even worst...

We understand the need for the President and the Democratic National Committee to compete for fundraising dollars. Here are four reasons why we think it’s bad timing:

1. Harlem’s unemployment at a record high of 50% for men.

2. The Secret Service is closing down Harlem street vendors during the president’s visit.

3. Harlem institutions in deep financial need; Rice High School, the National Black Theater, etc.

4. Harlem’s annual median income is $25,000, less than the $30,000 plate dinner for the night.

wth?

Oh no dear heart , he and Charles Rangel have a solution for all of that!!

As the president gave his speech today,
to work with dictators that kill their civilians for protesting for rights,
to attack another dictator,
for his oil,
and create a new war,
to keep the military industrial complex rich,

Rangel who more then likely will be one of the hosts,

has all of a sudden re-proposed a draft

that will
take care of the black unemployment rate!

Look at the timing of all of this

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.

Hello Moon Child, it's been a few years since we talked. Please let me know if you can do my chart for me, thank you. I'm in transition and really could help with some interpretations.
