Web Says White Supremacists
Hoping an Obama Presidency will
Spur a "Change in America"
Conventional wisdom suggests that racists are tossing and turning at
night over the prospect of a Black man in the White house. But, word is,
White supremacists are looking forward to a Barack Obama presidency,
The APreports.
Organizations like the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-
Defamation League, which make a living keeping their eye on White
supremacy activity, estimate that there are roughly a quarter-million
active hate-group members nationwide. One of those haters, 65-year-old
Richard Barrett, a member of the Nationalist Movement, believes that
Obama is just the catalyst needed to get White folks to unite. "Instead of
this so-called civil rights bill, for example, that says you have to give
preferences to minorities, I think the American people are going once
they see the 'Obamanation' they're going to demand a tweaking of
that and say, 'You have to put the majority into office,'" Barrett told The
Associated Press. Duke, in a recent essay posted on his Web site, titled,
"Obama Wins Demo Nomination: A Black Flag for White America,"
wrote that "Obama is a visual aid for White Americans who just don't get
it yet that we have lost control of our country, and unless we get it back
we are heading for complete annihilation as a people."

Don't Believe the Hype:


by J. Washington
The year was 1984, and the state
was Iowa. A white man who had
just voted walked out of his
precinct caucus and saw the Rev.
Jesse Jackson standing outside.
"I did all I could," the man told
Jackson ruefully, "but I just couldn't
bring myself to pull the lever and
vote for you."
L. Douglas Wilder laughs as he
relates the story Jackson once told
him, the sting eased by time and
Wilder's vantage point as the
nation's first elected black gover-
nor.
Now it's a quarter of a century
later, and the man everyone's talk-
ing about is Barack Obama, the
Illinois senator holding a slim lead
in many polls. But can the polls be

Velvet Teddybear Enlightens First
Coast on Sickle Cell Disease
Reuben Studdard of American Idol fame, spent the day on the First Coast
to enlighten citizens on sickle cell disease. Though not diagnosed with the
disease, the crooner became involved through his mother's advocacy of
sickle cell awareness. Sickle Smart Education Day was celebrated at St.
Paul Missionary Baptist Church and included a free Bar-be-cue and auto-
graph signing. KFP photo.


Florida's new state anthem: "Where
the Sawgrass Meets the Sky"
became law.
"This is a process long overdue,"
said Hill, who last year was the
driving force behind a statewide
competition to find a replacement
for the controversial "Old Folks at
Home," penned by Stephen Foster
and adopted as the official state
song by the Florida legislature in
1935. Also known as "The Swanee
River," the tune was seen by many


as racist because of its references to
slavery and plantation life.
"Where the Sawgrass Meets the
Sky" was written by Jan Hinton, a
music teacher who lives in South
Florida. It w as chosenas the contest
winner from among the 240 entries
submitted. The bill sponsored by
Senator Hill and, in the House, by
Rep. Ed Homan (R-Tampa) endors-
ing the winning tune as the state
anthem was passed during this
year's annual Legislative Session.

Theater for one day only. History buffs loaded the interactive bus through-
out the day to view artifacts and read historical memorabilia on Black
America. They also had the opportunity to record their own version of oral
history that will become a lasting part of history and the greatest oral his-
tory project undertaken.

S Govt. Survey

Says 78% of

Black Women

are Obese
A federal government agency
released the results of a study last
week which says that given "the
direction we are going" within the
next 40 years all adult Americans
will be overweight.
The study's conclusion drew a lot
of media attention with several
experts expressing doubt that such
a projection could actually occur.
However, drawing less attention
was an assertion in the study that
78 percent of Black adult women in
America are already overweight or
obese. The study was compiled by
the government's Agency for
S; Healthcare Research and Quality.
,One of the lead researchers Dr.
et Lan Liang cautioned that while
trends point to Americans becom-
ing increasingly obese, "genetically
S and physiologically, it should be
impossible" for all adults to
eds become overweight.
last The study was published in the
ers in current edition of the journal
Obesity and it warns that those at
high- greatest risk for becoming obese
are Mexican Americans and
African Americans.

Obama Campaign Going True Grassroots ,

with Salons and Barbershops
____^Mja ^i: .,", *"']'*f

Barack Obama's campaign went
looking for unregistered black vot-
ers in barbershops and beauty
salons across the state last weekend
in a new outreach effort to African-
Americans.
"There are nearly 600,000 eligible
but unregistered black voters across


the state," said Bobby Gravitz, an
Obama campaign spokesman. "We
dropped off posters, registration
materials, and we will continue
going in barbershops and beauty
salons until Oct. 6."
While the campaign is still organ-
izing its list of barbershops and
salons, staff members and volun-

teers worked shops in Fort
Lauderdale, Jacksonville, Miami,
Orlando, St. Petersburg, Sarasota,
Tallahassee and Tampa.
The nationwide campaign kicked
off last weekend in Atlanta. The
Obama campaign is trying to regis-
ter the more than 8 million African-
Americans who are eligible to vote
but not registered.
Sen. John McCain, the presumed
Republican nominee, faces a diffi-
cult task in trying to attract black
voters but will do some outreach to
African-Americans, his Florida
campaign staffers said.
McCain recently appeared at the
National Urban League convention
in Orlando. The campaign did not
give specifics on how it would
appeal to black voters in Florida.
Black voters in presidential cam-
paigns have overwhelmingly sup-
ported Democrats since 1964. The
McCain campaign is encouraged by
recent polls showing 15 percent of
black voters support him in Florida.
The Obama campaign also has its
challenges. For black voters to
make a difference for Obama, he
has to get them to the polls. Fewer
than 60 percent of newly registered
black voters went to the polls in
2004, compared with about 74 per-
cent of all new white voters.


Local Experts Say Options Are Available for Those in Forclosure Crisis


By Kortney Wesley
Like so many other homeowners
*Edward Smith (he asked us not to
use his real name) isn't in a good sit-
uation right now where his mort-
gage is concerned. About three
years ago he decided to refinance
his home. Even though Smith
admits he didn't completely under-
stand everything he was signing, he
said he really didn't expect his pay-
ments to jump more than two hun-
dred dollars a month. What's worse
is that Smith who's seen a cutback
in hours at his job could see his
payments climb even higher
because when he refinanced hle got
an adjustable, rate ,mortgage which


means his payments aren't stable.
"Didn't know
what kind of rate
we had until we
got a letter saying
the rate was going
E up," said Smith.
Two months
behind on his pay-
Carla Carter ments, foreclosure
expert Carla Carter from C Carter
Realty Group said the first thing
Smith and others who are in his sit-
uation should do is pick up the
phone.
According to Realty Trac, an
organization which tracks foreclo-
sures, Jacksonville ranks 33rd in the


country when it comes to foreclo-
sures; and for that reason, Carter
said what many homeowners don't
understand is that banks don't want
to take your home. With so much
inventory, Carter says its in the
banks best interest for the home
owners to keep their homes.
"It's important to talk to the mort-
gage company maybe they will
modify your mortgage so that you
can keep your home," said Carter.
Below are three options Carter
said everyone whose behind on
their mortgage should consider.
1). Don't procrastinate. As soon
as you realize you're going to be
late with your mortgage or as soon


as you fall behind call whoever
owns your loan and ask for help.
Carter said you need to ask for the
Loss Mitigations Department.
Carter said banks and mortgage
companies have teams in place to
address these sort of issues. She
said it's unfortunate that many
homeowners don't understand that
there are options to help them. For
instance you can inquire about refi-
nancing your loan. If your credit is
good you maybe able to get a better
rate and thereby lower your pay-
ments. Or your lender could do a
workout which would involve put-
ting you on a payment plan to help
you get caught up on your past due


amount. Lenders are also able to
apply your past due amount to your
principle so that you will be caught
up on your payments.
2) If you can't work out afford-
able payments with your lender
then another option is a short sale.
A short sale is when your lender
agrees to let you sell your home for
less than it's worth. With a short
sale the lender does indeed take a
loss but something for some lenders
is better than nothing.
3) Finally depending on how
much equity you have in your home
you may want to try and sell it.
Carter admits the market isn't what
it used to be adding that it's a buy-


ers market but it's better to sell your
home if you can instead of letting it
go into foreclosure.
"I've helped people with short
sales and I've just helped people
with their circumstances. I've been
able to help people with the options
they have," said Carter.
As far as Smith is concerned, he's
taking Carters advice. He's going to
call his lender and see what options
are available to him. Smith said he
realizes that his mortgage is his
number one priority and,, "[my]
mortgage situation is going to get
worked out. I have faith in God that
it is going to get worked out, "he

Elected Leaders Take Time to Mentor Future Politicians
While many people may think the only time they see our elected officials is during campaign time, they only
need to ask a local youth. Through participation in the Boys State program, youth have the opporuntity to get up
close and personal with the political process. Shown above between State Rep. Terry Fields and Councilman
Warren Jones is Eddie Bennett, a senior at First Coast High School attending an event for Barack Obama. The
aspiring politician is President of the National Honor Society, a member of Young Democrats in America and
Editor in Chief for the school year book. Councilman Jones a former Boys Sate member was eager to encourage
Eddie in his quest to represent the Florida American Legion Boys State, a "leadership action program" where qual-
ified male high school juniors take part in a practical government course. Boys State is designed to develop a
working knowledge of the structure of government and to impress the fact that our government is just what we
make it. Along the way young men have the opportunity to learn the political process. Each level of government
will be run by those delegates who are elected to serve. Instruction will be presented on the law and court system,
parliamentary procedure and Florida political history. Eddie acknowledged that Boys State has "allowed me to
understand the significance of State Government versus National Government". KFP Photo

It's definitely not dinner table con-
versation but maybe it should be.
The startling statistics rocking
Duval County say that there was a
92% increase in STDs reported


among African American males
between the ages of 15 and 19.
Even more disturbing, 25% of
Black females 15-19 is infected
with a sexually transmitted disease.
The free event, held at the First


Time is Running Out for Free IRS Money


Baptist Church of Mandarin includ-
ed speakers, information and frank
talk deemed "an intense discussion
of abstinence and sexually transmit-
ted diseases."
Organizers hoped the conference
served as a wake-up call on sexual
awareness highlighting the epidem-
ic rate of sexually transmitted dis-
eases among youth in Duval
County.
The open forum will included a
general session and age appropriate
break-out sessions for boys and
girls and a special break-out session
for parents. Students age 13 and
above along with their parents were
invited to attend.
Workshop topics included
"Abstinence: The Ultimate Goal",
"Making Wise & Healthy
Decisions", "STD 101", and
"Parents It's a Family Affair".
"The power packed sessions left
teens empowered and educated to
wait on becoming sexually
involved," said Cecily Amos, a 16
year old attendee.

Smiley Kicks Off Talented Tenth

HBCU Tour at Bethune C-U


We have all heard the phrase, if
something sounds too good to be
true, it usually is. Well in this case
there are no tricks. It is the govern-
ment stimulus package.
Recent press indicates millions of
low-income seniors on fixed
incomes, disabled veterans, dis-
abled people receiving Social
Security, and some retired railroad
workers, are all eligible for the
rebates. The problem is people
don't think they qualify because
they do not file tax returns.
There is no catch. Simply fill-out


a (1040A) form that asks basic
questions like: name, address,
social security number, and your
yearly income. Sign the form, and
mail it. THAT'S IT.
The refunds vary, but average
about $300. And wouldn't that be
helpful with easing the JEA price
increase, food bills, health care, and
skyrocketing gas prices.
Don't miss out. The filing dead-
line is October 15, 2008. For infor-
mation contact the IRS at 1-866-
234-2942, or you can go to their
website www.irs.gov.


National show host Tavis Smiley
Influenced by the teachings of
W.E.B. DuBois, television and
radio talk show host Tavis Smiley
targets college students for the
future of Black leadership and
hopes to inspire new leaders from
five of the nation's universities.
The Talented Tenth HBCU Tour,
will kick off this fall with visits to
Bethune Cookman University,
Alabama A&M University,
University of the District of
Columbia, Southern University and
A&M College at Baton Rouge and
South Carolina State University. "I
created this tour to enlighten,
encourage, and empower students
to think about what their own lead-
ership legacy will be. That is what
they can do today that will echo
throughout their communities,


careers, and ultimately throughout
history," said Smiley.
"I'm convinced that the students
who attend these institutions of
higher learning are the scholars, the
exceptional the leaders of the
future. They possess the courage
and talent to set the standard for the
next generation of leadership for
our country."
At each of the campuses, Smiley
will lead a two-hour interactive dis-
cussion on the characteristics of
successful role models in the areas
of business, public service, religion
and academia. And, he will chal-
lenge the students to develop their
leadership guiding principles. The
title sponsor, the U.S. Navy, will
host a special session to examine
how leadership skills developed
within its organization has helped
many achieve a lifetime of success.
The special session will be open to
students on each campus.
Smiley's lecture also will address
the existing issues and challenges
of Black leadership, while empha-
sizing examples of ethical, effective
and transformational leadership for
emerging leaders.

Three Brothers One Wins and Two Lose


Gas Prices Falling,
but For How Long?
Is it me, or are gas prices going
down significantly? Who would
have ever thought that I would see
$3.71 a gallon gas and think that I
was getting a great deal?
What's the cause of this madness -
I had just gotten used to gas being
$4 a gallon and having to choose
between going to the movies and
dinner or filling up my tank.
We shall see just how far gas
prices decrease. Maybe it's because
President Bush is at the Olympic
games hob nobbing with world
leaders that prices have dropped.
Or maybe the oil companies have
run out of space to store all of their
record profits so they are giving us
a break.
Either way, it's a welcomed
decline.
Making History Without
Thinking About it
Speaking of the Olympics is it
me or are the games sort of fun to
watch go around. I find myself
glued to the TV rutting for any
American in any event. And to my
utter surprise Sunday night I found
out the US Swim Team included a
young black man who was not only
apart of the team, but help the relay
team when a gold medal.
I stand extremely impressed.


Cullen Jones is the young man's
name, and he became only the third
African American ever to win an
Olympic medal in swimming. We
all know that black folk don't really
excel in water sports.
In fact, most sisters don't even like
to get their hair wet! Yeah, I know I
will hear about this comment at a
later date.
In an interview with NBC, Jones
said, "I was told, 'You could change
the face of swimming by getting
more African-Americans into
swimming.' "
He added, "At first I was like,
'Really, me?' I never got into it
thinking I could do something like
that, you never do. I just liked to
swim."
Jones will undoubtedly become
and instant inspiration and hopeful-
ly more black youth will get inter-
ested in swimming. In fact, blacks
should really look beyond the tradi-
tional sports we excel in [football,
basketball, spades] and try sports
that are not mainstream.
And yes, I know that spades is not
a sport, but most of us play it like it
is.
Jones was the third leg of the team
that set a world record in the 400-
meter freestyle relay on Monday
with teammates Michael Phelps,
Garrett Weber-Gale and anchor
Jason Lezak.


I can barely remember the 2004
Olympics, so this year's excite is
much welcomed. I even enjoyed
seeing President Bush huddled up
with the U.S. basketball team
telling the boys to "Get a W for W."
Yes, it was corny, but kind of funny
in a conservative kind of way.
Bernie Mac and
Isaac Hayes Pass
Speaking of funny, my favorite
King of Comedy passed over the
weekend at a very young age. How
can it be?
I remember the first time I saw
Bernie Mac it was on Def
Comedy Jam. I remember saying
who is this funny talking dude with
the load colors on. I didn't realize
that he would become a comedy
icon and go on to become a major
entertainment star.
Mac, who was 50, died Saturday
from complications relating to
pneumonia. He also battled with
sarcoidosis, a chronic disorder that
can cause inflammation in the
lungs.
What made the weekend ever cra-
zier was finding out the next day
that Isaac Hayes had passed.
Hayes, 66, died Sunday after col-
lapsing at his home near Memphis.
We still don't know the cause of his
death, but regardless it was still
devastating to many fans, friends


and family.
He was one of soul music's top
songwriters in the '60s, and then
became a renowned R&B superstar
in the '70s and then began starring
in several movies throughout his
career.
The other eerie part about the
death of the two stars was that they
co-star with Samuel L. Jackson in a
movie coming out in November
called, Soul Men. The movie is
about two estranged soul singers
(Mac and Jackson) who reunite to
honor their deceased bandleader.
In Mac, a Chicago native, one
could argue that his best years still
lay ahead of him considering he
was sort of a late bloomer in the
entertainment world.
Hayes had a long career as a
musician and actor. I remember
meeting Hayes when is visited
Jacksonville with Congresswoman
Corrine Brown. I remember think-
ing that this guy is really as cool in
person as he is on TV.
Well, two great entertainers have
been passed in one weekend. My
grandmother says that deaths come
in threes; I am hoping that she's
wrong this time.
Signing off from the my family
room watching Olympic gymnas-
tics, which I can't believe that I'm
admitting to watching,

The Death of Black Politics


- Hardly


When I read Matt Bai's piece
in the New York Times with the
title above, I thought that he was
fooling, but it turned out to be a
serious article that put forth much
of the thinking that has passed for
this "post-Black Power" even
"post Civil Rights" generation.
On second thought however, I
am not so sure that this hasmuch
to do with generation, except for
the fact that some of the successes
of the previous generation ushered
in a new class of more affluent
Blacks who eschew the tactics of
the past, not because they are
unsuccessful, but that in the cur-
rent atmosphere, they believe it
cost more personally to deploy
them.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was
not universally loved by Black
people and was hated and feared
by many of the Whites who now
put him on posters. The primary
reason was that he and many of his
generation made the White estab-
lishment and the Black who were
connected to them uncomfortable
with the system of practices built
on a racist hierarchy.
The courage to challenge it by
some in that generation was not
universally exercised by most
Blacks because they felt they had
much to lose: jobs, prestige,


friends and even the support of rel-
atives. I can conceive of that being
a major problem today when a
larger Black middle class which
has always led the struggle for jus-
tice now feels that so entrenched
that it does not have to deploy the
tactics of the past, not because they
would not be successful, but
because they would be personally
vulnerable in the new corporate
atmosphere, embarrassed, or lose
the support of friends and relatives
even more today.
I appreciate the generational fea-
ture of the new digital revolution
and the use of the internet and
other electronic technology to do
modem organizing. But when all is
said and done and the information
is disseminated about the injustices
taking place, it takes courage to act
upon that information.
In fact, as a leadership scholar, I
have always felt that of all the
characteristics of leadership, the
courage to act was the most impor-
tant.
The courage to act produces the
pressure for change and it always
will. That is one of the laws of the
use of power.
It is the responsibility of civil
rights activists in any generation to
make the pain and suffering that
results from racist oppression visi-


ble to systemic leaders so that it
can be corrected.
That is why they are not loved,
either by those who control
American institutions, those who
shape media images or even their
own people many times.
Just recently, the courage to
mobilize the masses of Blacks by
civil rights leaders created the visi-'
bility of the oppression of Blacks
in Benton Harbor Michigan, high-
lighted Don Imus' racist insults to
the young Black women of the
Rutgers University basketball
team, demanded redress from the
federal government to the disaster
of Katrina, showed the injustice of
the killing of Sean Bell by the New
York City police, forced the nation
to look at what was happening to
six young blacks who faced a legal
lynching in Jena, Louisiana,
demanded the Justice Department
treat the emergence of nooses as
hate crimes and so on. The digital
revolution was important to these
mobilizations, but it did not place
the power of marching feet and the
pressure that created for corrective
action.
I understand the great yearning
for Blacks who have reached the
standard of American affluence not
to have to mobilize to demand jus-
tice. But until justice comes, that


will be their responsibility because
they have access to greater
resources than the poor. The myth
that electing a Black president will
resolve these problems, is created
by some uncomfortable Blacks, the
media and institutional leaders
who pine for the emergence of
non-confrontational Black leaders
because they work within the sys-
tems they control.
We need institutional Black lead-
ers, but they have other responsi-
bilities. I remember that in the mid-
1970s, the Congressional Black
Caucus had to make a proclama-
tion that they would hence forth
not be considered civil rights lead-
ers, but legislators, that they could
not take on those kinds of issues
and tactics. Their task was to pass
the laws that either corrected or
prevented them.
It is still true today. We need the
division of labor in Black leader-
ship to be understood and support-
ed, especially by Blacks, even if
the media does not. So, the only
circumstance in which Black
Politics disappears is if racism dis-
appears, so that those who suffer
from it need not take extraordinary
measures to achieve justice. In this
sense, we don't live in a "post"
anything era, because the chal-
lenges are still here.

Rice: US Would be
C ,f, ITiTnI d Oa-bll


I. / *llc' .
US Secretary
of State
Condoleezza
Rice says the
nation would be safe under a
Barack Obama presidency and
that she is ruling out a shot at the
vice presidency under either
Obama or Republican John
McCain.
In an recently released interview
with Politico and Yahoo News,
Rice was asked if she would feel
secure with a president Obama.
"Oh, the United States will be
fine," she responded. "I think that
we are having an important debate
about how we keep the country
safe," she said, pointing to the
Middle East and Iraq.
"Those are important judgments
for the American people to make."
McCain has vied to portray the
Illinois senator as a dangerous bet
for US security given his relative


niiuf e Vrama
inexperience.
During their primary race,
Obama's defeated Democratic
rival Hillary Clinton ran a now-
infamous ad that questioned
whether he had the right leader-
ship mettle to cope with a foreign
policy crisis in the dead of night.
Rice, occasionally mentioned as a
potential running mate for
McCain, demurred when asked if
she might serve as second-in-com-
mand to his Democratic rival.
"I don't need another job in gov-
ernment with anybody. Look, I'm
a Republican, all right? Senator
McCain is a fine patriot and he
would be a great president," she
said.
"But there's something to be said
for fresh blood," Rice added in
reference to the running mate talk.
"And I know that there are a lot of
very good people who could be
his vice president."

A special Recognition Reception
was held in the Conference Room
of the North Florida Council Boy
Scouts of America Building for a
presentation to the 2008 David H.
Dwight Sr. Memorial Committee's
Honorees. These outstanding
scouters/community leaders are:
Harley Brown, Assistant
Scoutmaster, St. Pius V Catholic
Church Troop 74; Catherine Clark,
former Cub-Scout Den #78 Leader
at Little Rock Baptist Church; and
the deceased Ishmon Johnson, for-
mer Scoutmaster and Cub Pack
#358 Leader.
The awards were individually pre-
sented. Mr. Brown's trophy was
presented to him by his son Darian
Brown, an Eagle Scout who came
to town from Camp Springs,
Maryland for the presentation. Ms.
Clark's presenter was Mrs. Carolyn
Bradley and Mrs. Ishmon Johnson

remarks highlighting the work of
these dedicated leaders of boys.

The big ships at JAXPORT carry more than coffee, computers
and cars. They also bring 50,000 outstanding, well-paying
jobs and an annual $3 billion boost to our area's economy.
That's like hosting TEN Super Bowls-each and every year!
And that means those big ships deliver one other thing:
a brighter future for all of us.

Experts suggest the
problem is linked to slavery. When
Africans were brought to America,
neither they nor their children, were
allowed to swim for fear they
would escape. Later, segregation at
beaches and pools kept African
Americans out of the water. That
compounded with the fact, that few
pools were built in African
American communities, and they
were not encouraged to swim
resulted in a disproportionate num-
ber not being able to do so.

We all know we're supposed to
drink eight, 8oz glasses of water a
day, but how many of us really do?
The excuses I've heard, for not
drinking water, range from "I don't
like the way it tastes" to "I'd drink
it, but it makes me go to the rest-
room too much." These excuses are
trivial in comparison to the benefits.
Water, makes up 50 to 60% of our
bodies, regulates body temperature,
helps our breathing, transports
nutrients, carries away waste, pro-
motes clear and vibrate complex-
ions and helps our muscles func-
tion. Even with all of these benefits,
water is still one of the most neg-
lected parts of the African
American diet. Some of us go an
entire day without one glass!
An often overlooked benefit of
water, is its ability to aid in weight
loss. The more hydrated you are,
the quicker your metabolism works.
When you are dehydrated even
before you start becoming thirsty -
your liver has to help the kidneys
function and can't metabolize fat as
quickly. Your metabolism slows
down, causing some unwanted fat
to remain.
If your body is used to not getting
water, it actually stores more in
ankles, hips and thighs. In other

Take a water break instead of a

realizes the water will keep coming,
your body will get rid of the stores
and you'll lose weight!

The Factor of Race in Polling Could Prove Troubling


Continued from front
-ic and cultural changes in play, this
question is contributing to an
almost unprecedented air of uncer-
tainty surrounding this year's polls.
In 1989, Wilder polled as many as
15 points ahead in the days before
the election for Virginia governor,
but squeaked into office by a
minuscule 6,700 votes. David
Dinkins had a similar experience
that year, when he became New
York City's first black mayor. And
the phenomenon was first noted in
1982, when Tom Bradley endured a
stunning defeat in the California
governor's race after exit polls indi-
cated he was the winner.
The reason for these disparities? A
significant amount of white people
did not admit that race played a role
in their voting decision, pollsters
and academics say. Another factor:
When the person asking the ques-
tions was black, respondents were
more likely to say they favored the
black candidate.
In the recent Democratic primary,
exit polls in 28 states overstated
Obama's actual share of the final
vote.
Andrew Kohut, president of the
Pew Research Center, doesn't think
people are lying to pollsters today
about their support for Obama,
"because I don't think there's a lot of
stigma in saying you're voting for
John McCain." Kohut said it's not
like polls are asking, "Do you want
to vote for the white guy or the
black guy?"
But he did see potential for error
based on the people who decline to
participate in polls, whom he
describes as largely lower-income
whites more likely than the popula-
tion at large to have racially intoler-


ant views.
"The real frailty of our polls is that
we get very high refusal rates, and
we survive because the people who
we interview are like the people
who we don't interview on most
things," Kohut said. "(Racism) is
not one of them."
So are current polls accurate? "I
don't know," Kohut said, "and to be
honest with you, this is something
every pollster I know is concerned
about."
Wilder, now the mayor of
Richmond, Va., said his internal


polls during the governor's race
showed it to be much closer than
most people thought. "It was clear
that people were having the first
opportunity to vote for an African-
American, and there was uncertain-
ty," he said. "You know, 'Is he going
to be fair, is he just going to look
out for his own people. And who
are his own people?' I think we've
come a great distance from that. I've
seen the progress."
So is Wilder ready to bury the
Wilder Effect?
"No, I won't say that," he said with


a laugh. "I won't go that far."
Daniel J. Hopkins will. The
Harvard University postdoctoral
fellow examined data from 133
gubernatorial and Senate elections
from 1986 to 2006 and concluded
that the effect vanished in the early
1990s as racially divisive issues
such as crime and welfare reform
receded from the national stage.
Hopkins said that race could play
a larger role if it is injected into the
campaign as it often is in the wan-
ing days of close contests involving
black candidates.

BRENTWOOD Sherrine Davis, Inez Girardeau and Martha Bell Glattli


by Michael G Shinn, CFP
Contributing Writer
As a kid, I remember listening to
Arthur Godfrey, a 1950's TV Star,
crooning the song Count Your
Blessing. Godfrey's craggy voice
forcefully belted out the refrain,
"when I'm worried and I can't sleep, I
count my blessing instead of sheep
and I fall asleep counting my bless-
ing." When you went to sleep last
night, were you counting your bless-
ing or were you tossing and turning,
while worrying about your problems?
Do you have friends that complain
about the inadequacies of their
spouse, or the lack of achievement of
their children or the problems on their
job or the flaws in their home or
shortcomings of their friends or even
the failings at their church? They are
probably like most Americans that are
media conditioned to feel inadequate!
According to the media, we all should
be skinnier, sexier, healthier, wealthi-
er and wiser. Our kids should be like
the Beaver and our home life like
Ozzie and Harriet.
We are conflicted when the media's
projection of the "good life" meets the
reality of our "real life" and we per-
ceive ourselves coming up short.
Even with all of their supposed inade-
quacies, our spouses, children, jobs,
homes, friends and even our churches
are in most cases a blessing in our
lives and we are a complimentary
blessing to them.


What is a blessing?
A blessing is in the eye of the behold-
er. To be able to see is a blessing to
the blind; to be able to walk is a bless-
ing to the crippled; to have a home
and family is a blessing to the home-
less; and to live in freedom is a bless-
ing to those under persecution. What
are your blessings? How do you
count them? Why is this important
and where do you start?
Start counting your blessing right
now. If you are reading this column
you are more fortunate that almost
two billion people in the world that
cannot read. Get a piece of paper and
start your list. First, look at yourself,
next look at your relationships and
finally look at your family's outlook
for the future. Where are your bless-
ings and how can you be a blessing to
others?
Mental and physical fitness
How are you blessing your body'?
What you read, listen to and watch
will significantly impact your success
or failure. You can think your way


into failure or success to a large part
depending on what you allow into
your mind. Likewise, our bodies will
respond to what we eat, drink or oth-
erwise ingest. Like our minds, our
bodies, if not exercised regularly, will
operate at less than peak efficiency.
Family and relationships
Our family and relationships define
who we are. Last year, I attended a
funeral that had more than a thousand
people in attendance. The deceased
was not a celebrity or public official;
however he had touched the lives of
many through several community
roles that he had performed. The pro-
gram was fairly normal, with the
exception of tributes by several of his
nieces, nephews and close friends.
All expressed their gratitude for his
positive attitude, his ability to share
and the blessings that he bestowed
upon them. Who are you blessing ?
Career and finances
Most of our adult life will be spent
on a job. If the job is one that you
enjoy and you are good at, it will be a


blessing. However, if it is one that
you don't enjoy, you will only go
through the motions until the end of
each day. Is your job a blessing? If
not, how can you change it to be more
exciting or do you have to move on to
something more in line with your
motivations?
Your finances allow you to provide
for your family's security and well
being. Have you established personal
financial goals? If so, are you on a
track? If not, what can you do to pro-
vide for your family's long-term secu-
rity and well-being?
Life is a journey, not a destination.
Live each day as if you will die
tomorrow, but plan as if you will live
forever. When you go to bed tonight,
count your blessing and when you
wake up tomorrow be a blessing to
those around you.
