Superman: Illegal Alien
by Saab Lofton

I'll make this short and sweet (as opposed to my usual, thousand word-plus pieces): The anti-Latin bigotry in Arizona right now is savage and intolerable, but I have a weapon that Latinos/Latinas can use against it ...

The Real Welfare Cheats
by Saab Lofton

"Probably the worst part of the S&L bailout is the message it sends to high-flying con men. It says, 'Plunder all you want. As long as your political connections are solid, you'll get to keep the money and probably won't suffer more than a slap on the wrist.' (Charles Keating only went to jail because his abuses were so extreme; he was the exception, not the rule.)"

Beware of False Prophets

In the comics, Spider-Man's superheroic career was often hindered by the libel of J. Jonah Jameson's Daily Bugle, and boy, can I relate -- be it online stalkers or right-wing hate mail, my reputation has taken more hits than a crack pipe, and as D.J. Casey Kasem would say, the hits just keep on comin' ..!

The Problem is White Women
by Saab Lofton

"The Negro's great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Counciler or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate."

Rewarding Bitchiness

"If white men in my day did badly by Negroes, white women did worse."
--page 88 of Roxanna Slade, by Reynolds Price

Ralph Ginzburg's book, 100 Years of Lynchings, compiles hundreds of horrendous newspaper articles, but this particular atrocity stands out ...

Target Demographics With Disposable Income by Saab Lofton

Target Demographics With Disposable Income
by Saab Lofton

One of the biggest problems with Barack Obama is the problematic paradox he presents: If Obama loses this November, the claim will be that Rev. Jeremiah Wright's brutal honesty contributed to his downfall. If Obama wins, then supposedly the path to electoral success will lie in denouncing the brutally honest. In either event, those who tell the truth in this world are fucked.

Since the days of old -- back when white women were put on pedestals by plantation society and kept from black men who could impregnate them with "mongrels" such as Oscar-winner Halle Berry (and Barack Obama, for that matter) -- all too many whites in America have gotten off on pretending as though they're made out of glass. The theory is white Americans are so fragile, if someone like Rev. Wright points out the existence of American imperialism, they'll simply fall apart.

"White fear is profitable. Bond issues for prison construction managed by major investment banks are more profitable than school construction bonds for improving the decrepit, crowded public schools like Taft High School in the Bronx. The prison construction bonds also depend heavily on a steady flow of young, brown bodies of former students of de-funded schools, as do the crowded barracks in Iraq's deserts."
