I recall, when the GOP had fielded 16 contenders for the POTUS, it became the butt of jokes from a cross-section of personalities, most notably, Barack Obama, yet ironically, this may have been the been the best example inclusive, participatory democracy.
Of course over time, the field has greatly narrowed to just 2 serious contenders, with Kasich, Bush and Rubio being the holders-on; and I rue over demise of Dr. Ben Carson. So today, it’s Trump and Crux, which has proven to be a most acrimonious relationship.
Yet, on the Democrat side, we have a deck which includes a non-descript former governor and a 74-year-old senator.
No one else in the Democratic Party desires to become the nest president of the USA? What’s the real reason, Joe Biden decided not to run, after reportedly, his late son, Beau, on his deathbed, encouraged him to do so?
Of course, we hear the ‘age card” being thrown about, but in all fairness, a President Sanders would be over 80 years old, at the end of two terms (there have been presidents who have opted not to seek a second term). But, the point is made, in deference to a woman, at 68, who clearly not a “spring chicken”. Trump is 69 years old.
What I find most interesting, is how the deck has been so well stacked to assure a Hillary Clinton victory (i.e. no REAL opposition) – the most glaring example of AFFIRMATIVE ACTION, based on gender AND race.
But, this begs the question, “will the black community swoon again, for another “Messiah”? Will we finally begin to THINK, in assessing candidates? I dread the very notion of a repeat of the ideological letdown of 2008 and 2012.
Will the reminder of scriptural standards be met with indifference or hostility, as it was and is, when it comes to Obama?
Tune in this Saturday; invite your friends and neighbors to CRITICAL DISCOURSE.

Perhaps the most vital and historically resonant aspect of Michelle Obama’s stint at the White House is the most obvious one. She is a wife and a mother. And the Obama family’s visibility and prominence has done more to normalize and celebrate the black family than any policy measure or bill her husband could have crafted. At the center of all this is Malia and Sasha—two girls who have been and will continue to be exemplary role models for children and young adults, black girls particularly.

"We have to understand that an attack on one faith is an attack on all our faiths, the mosque outside of Baltimore, received threats twice in the past year. When any religious group is targeted, we all have a responsibility to speak up.Think of your own church or synagogue or temple, and a mosque like this will be very familiar,Our television shows should have some Muslim characters that are unrelated to national security" President Obama
Crossover appeal is a key to success in America's diverse society. Tonight we take a look at the phenomenal success of the Supremes, the iconic 1960's Motown group. They helped to shatter the racial barriers of their day thanks in large part to both raw talent coupled and the ability to take their soulful, R&B sound to a national audience. But success brought its own problems to the group, as it does to so many today. We take a look at the promise and pitfalls of the crossover phenomenon on today's political scene.
