How did the NAACP wrap up its national conference this weekend without saying a mumbling word
about the genocidal bombing of Gaza? Why did Moral Monday's Rev. Barber appear on HBO's Real
Time with notorious Islamaphobe Bill Maher and not speak to the morality of apartheid in Israel?
Why are the black political class and the black church, invisible on the invasion of Gaza and the fact of
Israeli ethnocracy in general?

Sometimes a silence can be the loudest sound in the room. The silence of our numerous and powerful
US black political class, not just on the current massacres of civilians in Gaza but on the
incontrovertible fact that Israel has become a full fledged racist ethnocracy is deafening.

As Israeli troops massed around Gaza this weekend, the NAACP wrapped up its 2014 annual
convention
in Las Vegas this weekend without a mumbling word of solidarity with bleeding
Palestinians. Moral Monday's Rev. Barber was a guest on HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher Sunday
night as well, but could not spare a single breath to discuss the morality of occupation, house
demolitions, or Israeli apartheid to his notoriously Islamaphobic host. Al Sharpton is on MSNBC
nightly, and can't find time to cover the murderous assault on Gaza in any meaningful way. You don't
hear so much as a peep from the Congressional Black Caucus or the National Urban League, the
National Action Network, Rainbow PUSH, big time black pastors and business people or the rest of
that crowd.

Our black political class of preachers, politicians, big time academics, pundits and aspirants have not
been silenced by threats or fears of economic retailiation. Maybe you can say that about
entertainers and athletes, but not our so-called leaders. People like black members of Congress, Al
Sharpton and Rev. Barber are where they are because they don't need to be told what their masters
require. What they fear is something deeper, something that threatens the very foundations of their
careers and legitimacy.

What is "The Black Church?" Where's its central headquarters? What's the name of it's Pope-like head of church? What's the name of its news organ that issues edits on world affairs?

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
