It is a blog by members of the Black community and directed mainly at that readership as the main title would indicate, DAWNING A NEW DAY ,The Frederick Douglass Foundation Community Blog. However I do not believe that this group of bloggers/writers would object to "White folk" reading or even commenting on the blogs.
The article that perhaps attracted my attention the most was one entitled Another Civil War.
Many of us have written about the possibility of such but I have never read such knowledgeable input on the matter.
The writer begins the article with these statements:
My next statement is uncharacteristic of me because, as a former intelligence officer, business executive, homeland security professional and now an associate dean, my hallmark has always been prudence and ensuring my words are measured. But I feel it needs to be said.
I wonder if 2008 is the last peaceful American presidential election I will have witnessed in my lifetime. I find myself asking, “To what lengths will people go to ensure President Obama is reelected?”
Will President Obama step in and calm the waters, and if he doesn’t, does that beg the question of whether or not agitation to the point of violence is the Democrats’ strategy for victory in 2012?
I look around me and, like a geologist measuring the warning signs of an impending volcanic eruption, I’m disturbed and wondering if anyone else is picking up on the signs of disaster.
I invite you to read this informative , yet disturbing commentary and share your thoughts as to the authors opinions.
I also recommend another reading from this same blog entitled Back When We Were Negroes. You can find the link in the margin of the blog which I am featuring.
