Obama did so well among white voters during 2008 presidential elec was because of his light lexion and bi-racial In fact, Sen. Reid was honest and accurate two fronts. He exposed color consciousness of white community that still exists while, simultane ously, acknowledging his awareness of the versatility most Blacks have to exude when separating their per sonal lives from their profes sional ones. When Sen. Reid said that President Obama, didn't use the Negro dialect unless he wanted to/ he was referring to the manner of speech Blacks often use amongst themselves as e opposed to how they would communicate in a business related setting. While his use of the word 'negro' was anti quated at best we would be in serious denial if we didn't admit that at least a portion of his statement carried some merii:. For all the hoopla and controversy surrounding the 70-year-old senator, the fact remains that whether we like it or not, the man was telling the truth. All of the sensationalism that came along during the process is the result of political maneuvering by the right people up to further their o"n agendas, for the most part, '"e responded with a resounding care-less attitude. Not because we we're alright '"ith white people still holding deep-rooted prejudices, but because we're learning to pick and choose our battles more carefully. Senator Reid wasn't the first high-profile white indhidual to make question able comments regarding race and, unfortunately, he \ von't be the last. It seems that regardless of ho\v many achievements we accom plish or how much '"'e do to change history, we can never do enough to convince the world that their perception is not our reality.

"My responsibility as coordinator is to make sure the designated areas are covered and that crime is being deterred in those areas.

The reason those areas \Vere targeted is because law enforcement officials want ed to bring more resources into those areas that have not experienced crime reduction comparable with the rest of the city. "The grant is written where we put the officers in place and they do the rest," said Capt. Ratliff. ''The position of the site officers isn't funded by the grant, the city pays for that.

They argue that when Wade withdrew permission to license his name, he illegally squelched competition for valuable personalized items such as signed basketballs, T shirts and hats. Wade's attorneys told U.S District Judge Kenneth Marra that a celebrity has DWAYNE WADE never been accused in a U.S. court of wrongty monopolizing his own memorabilia market. Wade's decision to terminate his deal with part ners in the D. Wade's Place chain was within his rights to license his own image as he sees fit, attorney Robert Turken said.

This weekend, the AFC matchups were finalized with the Indianapolis Colts defeating the Baltimore Ravens 20-3, and the New York Jets surprising the San Diego Chargers 17-14. In the NFC, the New Orleans Saints took the Arizona Cardinals"to the woodshed with a 45-14 beating, and on Sunday, the Minnesota Vikings gave the same respect to the Dallas Cowboys in a 34-3 victory Now, the Jets will travel to Indianapolis, and the Vikings will visit the Big Easy Since the playoffs began, all of the home teams had been victorious until the Jets upset the Chargers. In that game, rookie quarterback Mark Sanchez tossed what turned out to be the game-winning touchdown early in the fourth qu a rter. In the Colts-Raven s game, Ravens quarterbac k Joe Fiacco has played 12 quar t e r s ag ain s t th e Colts o v e r the past two years, and hasn t won a game The Arizona Cardinal offense that stood to e -to-toe with the Green Bay Packers a week ago, could not overcome the first-half barrage of 35 points b y the Saints offense, although they opened the game with a long touchdown run.

Obama: Tiger Woods Can Get His life Back Together PRES. BARACK OBAMA President Obama is a sports fan and a passionate golfer so it makes sense that People Magazine asked Obama about Tiger Woods in the magazine's year-end interview with the President and the First Lady this week President Obama: I don't want to comment on his per sonal relationship with his wife, but I'm a strong believer that anybody can look within themselves, find their flaws and fix them. I'm sure he feels terrible about what hap pened, and I suspect that he will try to put his life back together again. The famously apolitical Woods took part in Obama's inauguration cele bration and the two men had talked about playing golf together. BEAUTY UNLIMITED .. :.

"We've waited for two years, and now we know he'll pay for killing my only son." "We did meet with the State TORRIE MCDUFFIE Attorney's Office a few days before he was found guilty, and I told them I wanted Bell to get 25 years to life in prison. They told me that would be their recommenda tion to Judge Fuente. Ms. Brown said she gives thanks to the Lord that her son s killer won't be able to hurt anyone else. "It's a shame the way our young men are killing each other. They've got to know that sooner or later they will get caught and they will have to pay."
