 Does Race still Matter? How Barack is rewriting…. (U.S. News & World Report’s)…No…How the Media is rewriting the rules.If I see another magazine cover with Barack Obamas’ face plastered all over it… I may just throw up…don’t you think the public is sick of the over exposure of Barack Obama and the under-exposure or cover up of world history- political pioneer Shirley Chisholm’s contributions to this country. let us not get into the issues of the dummying down of America by the media, but let us get into having the media publish the realities of the political history of this country.On the Issue of Race, let us not just publish the latest political celebrity on the cover page for the hopeful sake of sales.Let’s give America – the new generation,  a political leadership/history lesson on the person who was the original Change Agent and Broke down all of the barriers which Black Americans and women face and changed America forever…Congresswomen Shirley Chisholm.Now I know white America likes to live in denial of many things.But Shirley Chisholm took the old America of the past 50’s and 60’s and created a NEW ERA in American politics.Let us give credit and justice where credit is due….Although Barack Obama is the latest Black American political figure, he is very, very, very, very far from being the greatest…Shirley Chisholm gave America the change to become a united country so let us not keep the country divided covering up her magnificent, ground breaking and unprecedented campaign.She was the underdog who changed the Presidential Completion of America Forever and made world history, She brought Black America and Women into the world of Presidential and World Politics.. and let us admit and not forget that she may have not won the nomination but she was still a winner for those who were looking for change in the American political Landscape.

“Candidate of the People of America”

In announcing her presidential campaign on January 27, 1972, at the Concord Baptist Church in Brooklyn, NY, Chisholm said: I stand before you today as a candidate for the Democratic nomination for the Presidency of the United States of America. I am not the candidate of black America, although I am black and proud. I am not the candidate of the women’s movement of this country, although I am a woman, and I am equally proud of that. I am not the candidate of any political bosses or fat cats or special interests. I stand here now without endorsements from many big name politicians or celebrities or any other kind of prop.

Senator Clinton Honors Shirley Chisholm

Sponsors Senate Resolution Honoring Her Legacy and Service to the Nation

Washington, DC — On the occasion of the Congressional Black Caucus’s Memorial Service celebrating the life and legacy of the late Shirley A. Chisholm, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton sponsored a Senate resolution in her honor. Senator Clinton’s resolution calls on the United States Senate to pay tribute to her service to the Nation, her work to improve the lives of women and minorities, her steadfast commitment to demonstrating the power of compassion and her dedication to justice and equality.

“I add my voice to so many in New York and Washington who are mourning the loss of Rep. Shirley Chisholm of New York. Shirley Chisholm was a bold pioneer who fought for civil rights and equality with an energy that forever changed the way American politics deals with matters of race and gender,” said Senator Clinton in her statement for the Congressional Record accompanying the resolution.

The Senator today also honored the legacy of Shirley Chisholm with members of the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, of which Shirley Chisholm was a member. Senator Clinton met with members of sorority, including National President Dr. Louise Rice, as part of their 16th Annual “Delta Days in the Nation’s Capital.” The members met with Senator Clinton to discuss issues of common concern to African American women, men, and families, including their concerns about the privatization of Social Security, the need for election reform, and the need for greater support of the United Nations and efforts to improve the lives of those living in African nations.

“It was wonderful to meet with members of Delta Sigma Theta to discuss these important issues and to acknowledge the amazing legacy of someone who has inspired generations, Shirley Chisholm. Shirley always made a notable impression on everyone she met and she would have been proud of the great turn-out from the Delta Sigma Theta sorority members in her honor,” Senator Clinton said.

In further tribute to the life and legacy of the late Representative Chisholm, Senator Clinton will make remarks in Washington this evening at the CBC memorial service. A copy of Senator Clinton’s statement for the Congressional Record honoring Shirley Chisholm is attached.

Senator Clinton Statement for the Congressional Record Honoring Rep. Shirley Chisholm

I add my voice to so many in New York and Washington who are mourning the loss of Rep. Shirley Chisholm of New York. Shirley Chisholm was a bold pioneer who fought for civil rights and equality with an energy that forever changed the way American politics deals with matters of race and gender.

When she was elected to Congress in 1968, Rep. Chisholm became the first African-American congresswoman. She overcame the twin obstacles of racism and sexism to win election. But she didn’t stop there. When she reached Congress she spoke with a loud, clear voice, and she quickly lived up to her slogan of being “unbought and unbossed.” She was a co-founder of the Congressional Black Caucus in 1969, and she fought to improve the lives and opportunities of inner city children and families. She opposed the Vietnam War and the military draft. And she bravely declaimed the sexism and racism she encountered in a political world that, prior to her arrival, had been exclusively white and almost exclusively male.

Her positions on the issues and her statements about race and gender made her a lightning rod for criticism. But despite the intense pressure of being both outspoken and a “first,” Rep. Chisholm continued to blaze a path to greater equality. In 1972, she became the first woman to run for the Democratic presidential nomination. Despite being largely ignored by the media, her committed run for the Presidency, and the 152 delegates she won, proved to the entire country that a woman was up to the task of taking on a serious run for national office.

Rep. Chisholm was a powerful symbol, an “historical person” as she put it. But perhaps her greatest achievement was reminding us that the purpose of fighting for equality is not to simply make a point or become a symbol; it is to work for that day when we can all enjoy the quiet responsibility of being equal. As she explained in her 1969 speech to the House in favor of the Equal Rights Amendment: “A woman who aspires to be the chairman of the board or a member of the House does so for exactly the same reason as any man . . . She thinks she can do the job and she wants to try.”

Arthur Ashe said that heroism “is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost.” Rep. Chisholm was a heroine. She knew that “there is little place in the political scheme of things for an independent, creative personality, for a fighter. Anyone who takes that role must pay a price.” She paid that price in order to serve Americans who were not being served by the political establishment. She fought injustice and discrimination and refused to be cowed by a history of exclusion. And in so doing, she served not only the constituents of her time but all Americans for all times.

Shirley Chisholm’s legacy is undeniable; thirteen African-American women served in the House in the 108th Congress. We are grateful for her life, and we are grateful for the doors she opened and the barriers she brought down on behalf of us all.

Beyond Barack Obama: The Revival & Rise of The Amazing…Shirley Chisholm- Presidential Candidate of 1972, The Original Catalyst of Change and Our Political Leader Forever.Let me set the record straight, Barack Obama is an African-American without an American name which makes him an African/Afro-American with direct African/Kenyan and White-American parentage,Basically African-Americans (Afro-Americans) African-Americans often have a distant white  person in their heritage due to being victims of American or British colonization/slave trade – slavery or American enslavement, and sometimes through regular relationships.African-Americans are people who have overcome the history of enslavement in America including African-American /Caribbean- Black-West Indian Americans who share the tragedy of coming from a history of enslavement by The (mostly) English speaking British/Colonial-American & Confederate American Complex.The Atrocity of slavery in America and the West Indies has come to define the shipment of the enslavement of people from African-heritage origin.African (Afro) Americans have had their original African names taken away from them centuries ago during slavery, while Barack still has his African name; African Americans have been given English/American names which disconnect then from their African heritage. So Barack Obama is different than most African-Americans…..Most African-Americans and their families heritage have created the more civilized side Americas bad history with black America, African- Americans have lead America to a new heights of science, technology and politics.So let us follow one of the most outstanding leaders in American History who challenged America to change and created World History during her 1972 Presidential Campaign.Shirley Chisholm created a new era in American history and is not only and American political pioneer but an icon of world history; she introduced the politics of inclusion the America.She represents African/Afro-America in world history and is a perfect example and articulate, diplomatic, outspoken model of a person who has broken out of the chains of slavery, oppression and atrocities of America and has created a New World for all Americans to enjoy.She is and always will be the political Leader of all America.

Position??She stated….(She is running for the Presidency of the United States…and you can believe that).Political Racism is still alive and we must look to our political LEADER SHIRLEY CHISHOLM Who addressed and conquered all of these issues and created much needed change in American so others like Barack Obama could follow in her footsteps.“You don’t make progress by standing on the sidelines, whimpering and complaining. You make progress by implementing ideas.”     -Shirley Chisholm (1924-2005) People are looking both Leadership and Change in the direction of the Country… so I would say Follow in the footsteps of Political Leader..Shirley Chisholm…and this will define the Victorious Candidate.In a career that boasted a number of impressive ‘firsts,’ Shirley St. Hill Chisholm seized upon and expanded the political opportunities available to women and African-Americans in the aftermath of  desegregation and the civil rights legislation of the 1960’sPower House, Shirley Chisholm, American politician, the first African American woman to be elected to the U.S. Congress, and run for the Democratic Nomination to the Presidency of the United States in 1972.“I am a candidate for the Presidency of the United States.

THE UNDENIABLE POLITICAL-LEADERSHIP OF SHIRLEY CHISHOLM

Follow the Chisholm Trail: The current (Democratic) Candidates lack the stage presence, articulate, and powerful electrifying performance of true Leaders such as Shirley Chisholm.

The original change candidate has already made history but the American press and political news media/shows seems to be in denial or non-recognition of the history of this – our American country

In the 70’s Shirley Chisholm founded the new America… which the media is trying to deny or destroy…

The similarities of Vietnam and Iraq and the Nixon era politics and Bush era politics and the politics of Black America cannot be denied… and therefore the founder of the Change Campaign of Shirley Chisholm (and democratic nominee George McGovern) cannot be neglected.

A Country that cannot build upon its past cannot construct a future.

In the memory and honor of Shirley Chisholm’s Groundbreaking and Landmark Campaign for Change, and as the 1972 Chisholm trail – Presidential Campaign – trail-blazed the path through-out this country for others such as Jesse Jackson and Barack Obama. I hope to set the record straight by establishing that the foundation, founder and catalyst for change is and was the 1st black/woman  presidential candidate Shirley Chisholm, and now hope that Barack Obama carries on the baton that has been passed to him for change in this country as well.

Shirley Chisholm revolutionized America and became a revolutionary woman known around the world as one of the top 10 most important women in the world which dismissed all negative notions of the potential of black America, as she constructed the foundation for a renewed and revolutionized American society.

TODAY….

Today Barack Obama has been accepted/adopted and popularized by white American media and society far ahead of getting any concrete facts and information of is presidential run.

American society has turned him into a pop-star (idiot) instead of a serious political candidate like Shirley Chisholm.

Hillary Clinton is a woman candidate who of course brings the potential of a woman candidate to the presidency of the USA, who naturally brings issues of black America to the presidency because of the shared Black America and women’s movements together because of the Shirley Chisholm presidential Campaign era of the early-mid. 70’s, where she carried the needs of everyone in the country.
