GOP goes funky UPDATE

Posted By on Thu, Feb 19, 2009 at 2:15 PM

New RNC Chairman Michael Steele, or maybe we should call him the Mr. B.I.G. of Today's Republican Party, promises to update the image of the GOP, in part by applying the party's principles to urban hiphop settings.

Looks like an opening for Philander Smith's hiphop president, Walter Kimbrough, to bring Steele down for his Bless the Mic lecture series.

UPDATE: Check the comments. Dr. Kimbrough is way ahead of me. Steele should be in Little Rock for an appearance at Philander in September.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
