         LOS ANGELES, January 6, 2012 — There is a new epithet entering our vernacular, a new "N" word, if you will. That    new slur has become the word "Black." This new Black attack has been on the rise, most notably on the Republican presidential campaign trail. Rick Santorum is the latest and clearest candidate to express the cultural and political societal trait known as racism. 

No, he never says anything overtly racist. Rather, Santorum walks on the borderline of what one could call "Embedded Racism," a term used to describe the display of subtly racist tendencies or delivery of racist subliminal messages, oftentimes without the speakers knowing that they've said anything offensive.

On January 1, 2012, on a campaign stop in Iowa and in response to a question about welfare, Santorum said that he wanted to make Black people's lives better by helping them find employment, not by giving them welfare. The fact that Iowa has a White population above 90% and that 84% of state is receiving some form of welfare benefit, didn't seem to register with Rick.

At the time that he made his controversial comment, Santorum may not have known the questioner’s motivation, but his response clearly displayed signs of embedded racism. With Black people being very much the minority population in this country, Santorum does not grasp the fact that black people do not dominate out-of-wedlock births. When the questioner made a query regarding welfare, Santorum's mind immediately equated welfare with Black people. The word "welfare," therefore, forms a trigger point for Santorum's embedded racism to manifest itself. This was not an isolated .........incident........CLICK HERE ...to read  the end. ...........

Vladimir Putin threatens war with Ukraine to get sanctions lifted

ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Russian President Vladimir Putin doesn't want to bite off any more of Ukraine — he can't afford it.

That hasn't stopped him from making the world think he does, as 40,000 Russian troops mass on the Ukrainian border after a "trumped-up" border incursion by Ukrainian special forces. Perhaps in ...

Trump is half-right: NATO doesn't obligate U.S. president to defend member nations from aggression

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is more right than he knows about our NATO pledge to defend member nations from aggression. His many detractors on that score are ill-informed. They are echo chambers of the multi-trillion dollar military-industrial-counterterrorism-complex (MICC) terrified by the prospect of a quietus for presidential wars.   ...
