         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. ...........

L. TODD WOOD: Russia to reap weapons windfall with Iran, destabilize Mideast

In April, Secretary of State John Kerry quietly met with Russian Vladimir Putin in Sochi. I've always wondered what the purpose and the result of that meeting was. Now as the president attempts to sell his Iran "deal" to Congress and the American people, we may be seeing the consequences ...

NINA RADCLIFF: A healthy breakfast really does a body good

The term "breakfast" is derived from the fact that we are "breaking" our "fast" and providing our bodies with fuel after several hours of not eating. And despite the proven benefits of eating a morning meal — more energy, improved ability to concentrate, and a decreased incidence of obesity, heart ...

LARK GOULD: Copenhagen for two days or two weeks

Copenhagen can be wonderful, indeed, if you skip the mermaid selfie and head straight to the city's hip meandering districts for some neo-Dansk design and adventures in New Nordic tastes.

Still a city built on fairytales, there is no better place to exchange modern-day myths than Copenhagen's outdoor bistros serving legendary the smorgasbord ...
