So the LSM chooses not to cover these gatherings? And Tea Partiers are…nuts? I don’t think so.

Thanks to Zombie at PJM.

The Essence of Obama

My friend Newsbird blogged about the March 2010 cover of Essence magazine whose target readers are young, black females, it’s a good read. I wanted to learn more about the magazine and visited their website to read the articles…..afterall, they love their Obama covers, this was the third appearance.

So why then would Essence have an article trashing another magazine for being “too white” ? From the website:

Commentary: Does Vanity Fair Hate Black Girls?
Friday, February 12, 2010 | 7:20 AM
by Kimberly Seals Allers

Momlogic blogger Kimberly Seals Allers criticizes the Vanity Fair Young Hollywood spread for not featuring any Black stars. The writer asks, “What about Gabourey Sidibe from ‘Precious’ and Zoe Saldana?”

“I could have stomached the photo spread; I’m pretty much used to African Americans being excluded from mainstream Hollywood.” She continues, “But they really went too far with the descriptive language in the accompanying story with each waiflike actress getting her respective props for “downy-soft cheeks,” a “button nose,” “patrician looks and celebrated pedigree,” “dewy, wide-eyed loveliness,” or “Ivory-soap-girl features.” Ivory soap-girl features???”

Perhaps Essence will feature those very talented actresses, Zoe and Gabourey, on their cover in the near future. They are both inspiring and accomplished young ladies. Would Essence have put John and Cindy McCain on their cover had they won the White House ? Three times ?

Kudos to Essence magazine for celebrating “Black” Hollywood Awards ! Right?

A Tale of Two Ladies Helping Children

This lady had lots of publicity…and a White House Press Release

CBS News, AP, ABC News, Sacramento Bee: “Michelle Obama Donates To Toys For Tots”
Washington Post: “Michelle Obama plays Santa Claus for Toys for Tots”

….and this lady had none….

LOCAL Juneau Empire Gov. Sarah Palin meets with Juneau Girl Scouts to help sell cookies at Fred Meyer on Saturday. Last Sunday, two Girl Scouts were robbed by a masked assailant as they were leaving Fred Meyer with proceeds from their cookie sales. A 17-year-old suspect has been arrested for the crime. Juneau Fred Meyer Store Director Jaime San Miguel, on behalf of Fred Meyer, presented Girl Scout Troop 32 with a check for $800 to replace the money that was robbed. Fred Meyer also matched dollar for dollar all of the cookie sales for the time Gov. Palin helped the Girl Scouts at the store. The Girl Scouts sold 943 boxes of cookies for a grand total of $3772. (March 2009)

This post inspired by Newsbird and The Sarah Palin Blog.
