touching:  http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/11/06/AR2008110603948.html?sid=ST2008110604101&s_pos=.

be sure to read very end.

Oh my word...what a sad ending!  It was going along so nicely, then bam!

I know right!  Did you have a chance to launch the photo gallery?  I liked looking at all the other pics.  Worth 1000 words!

Hello everyone. This is my first post. I've  looked at medians and 25th/75th percentiles to get a pretty good idea where I'm competitive. However, I am having trouble determining where I can realistically expect a full tuition scholarship. ( A stipend would be great too).

HAPPY BLACK CHRISTMAS!

ok!  People are going to start hanging framed pictures of Obama next to their pictures of Jesus.

I already put mine up.

Long as you don't put Tupac or Biggie up there then cool.

ITA!!   :D

P.S. I think I should have ordered some Obama gear!  Hope the price doesn't rise before I can place a few orders!

I don't know whether to be happy or disappointed that I was able to vote in less than 5 mins.  I came like I had packed for a day trip, and there wasn't even a line.  :P

I would be happy to see if my friend who's a 3L at AU (black female) will talk to you about her experience there.  PM me your first name and email address, and I'll pass it along to her.

Quote from: Economist endorsement
At home he would . . .lessen the tendency of American blacks to blame all their problems on racism.

I immediately picked up on that, too.  I had to roll my eyes twice!  Either way there needs to be a "some" in there, either before the word "American" or in place of the world "all."  If anyone thinks that an Obama win in this election is going to somehow magically change conditions that black Americans face on Nov. 5, then he is delusional.  I think the most that can happen is that attitudes -- both of white and black Americans -- may begin to shift in ways that could mark progress for this nation.  This is an important first step, but it is, admittedly, only the first.

Wow, the Economist really screwed this endorsement up for me. If anything, this election has confirmed that racism is still very prevalent in this society, not just with white skinheads, but with joe sixpacks and sarah hockeymoms who will use words like muslim, socialist, communist, marxist and terrorist sympathizer in place of n*gger. Even Bill formerpresident tokenized African-Americans while liberal campaign insiders darken photos in campaign ads to remind voters that he is still half-black. So when a black person can run for president during a time of economic prosperity and none of the above happens, then i will concede the point.

Very well said!

For the first time  in thiselection season, I actually feel sorry for Palin.  I don't think those radio jockeys should have called her like this...  :-\
