EXAMPLE OF COURAGE, for the Educated, nonRacist America


Rev. Jackson diminished O’Brien’s efforts and accomplishments by telling her that she isn’t Black enough. Numerous Black Planet readers have expressed that they too share Jackson’s sentiment; in that they feel she isn’t “Black enough” to represent Black people, while many others feel that the complexion of her skin or genetic background doesn’t set a precedence in her connection to the Black race.

Soledad O’Brien RESPONSE-----I am immediately upset and annoyed and the even more annoyed that I am upset and pissed off. If Reverend Jesse Jackson didn’t think I was black enough, then what was I? My parents had so banged racial identity into my head that the thoughts of racial doubt never crossed my mind. I’d suffered an Afro through the heat of elementary school. I’d certainly never felt white. I thought my version of black was as valid as anybody else’s. I was a product of my parents (black woman, white man) my town (mostly white), multiracial to be sure, but not black? I felt like the foundation I’d built my life on was being denied, as if someone was telling me my parents aren’t my parents.

come on butterflys and sweetLittle old ladies ---- even kings and queens -- TOUCH THAT...

I find the Rev. J.J. to be the biggest hypocrite of contemporary time. After all, what can you expect from a lap-dog of Wall Street.

Mrs. María de la Soledad Teresa O'Brien----American Courage

"It's hard to be the lone ethnic face in the room.

People look to me to explain a community that is diverse and ever-changing, a community with which sometimes I don't have a great deal in common.

There is so little in-depth reporting on people of color that I set the bar high for myself and the people around me.

I see the job I have now as my opportunity to get good reporting about black and brown people on TV, as a chance to bring people together, and to tell a fair and accurate story of communities of color, not just rehash stereotypes for the sake of drama."

".....My ethnic roots are relevant when you look at the broader picture of who brings us the news.

Who you are matters oh so very much when, according to the National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ), just 6 percent of the people working in TV news and 4 percent of the newspaper reporters in this country are Latinos.

The NAHJ presents a report on media diversity called the "Brownout Report," and it determined that less than 1 percent of the stories aired by the networks include Latinos, and that tiny amount is heavily concentrated on immigration, crime and drugs.

I have a chance to bring people together, and to tell a fair and accurate story of communities of color,

not just rehash stereotypes for the sake of drama. »

Again...Thank You dearest Lady.....

My Life in Black and White

Chapter 1

My......father began teaching fluid mechanics at..State University of New York ...

We grew up among well-educated white kids, with a nice home and good schools, and
pursued a life that seemed limitless. My parents hoped that the fact that

one of them was white and the other black would not define us.......

My siblings also went to Harvard, and now my sister Maria is a law professor, Cecilia is a corporate lawyer,

Tony heads a documents company, Estela is an eye surgeon and Orestes is an anesthesiologist.

We may have not blended into Long Island, but when it came to academic achievement we didn’t struggle.

This ragtag, multiracial gang from Smithtown did all right.

At BIA, African American Family site GENESIS

....we had MANY African American LatinoHispanic Commentators --- THAT made our Family Better

Oh le ruego al creador que regresen y enriquezcan nuestras vidas una vez más, gracias de nuevo...

Un pequeño tributo a la mayor BIA African American Lady

Otra vez... Gracias señora querida.....

La historia de María de la Soledad Teresa Marquetti O’Brien tiene el sazón perfecto para ser

demasiado caribeña, para ser perfectamente latina. Su madre nació en el corazón de la Habana Vieja,

Cuba en 1930 y se casó con un australiano, relación de la cual nació esta niña con un toque de allí

y otro de allá.

Para ponerle más sabor a la historia, el abuelo cubano de María de la Soledad reconoció el potencial

que tenía abrir un bar en la calle Obispo, una de las zonas más céntricas de la Habana Vieja, entonces

el perfecto refugio de poetas, músicos, políticos y locos. Posteriormente, ese lugar se convertiría en el

famoso “Floridita”, que se inmortalizó en la pluma del célebre escritor norteamericano Premio

Nobel de Literatura Ernest Hemingway.

Ésta es una parte de la historia personal detrás de Soledad O’Brien, la periodista que por años fue cara

de la cadena CNN y quien ahora impulsa su proyecto personal a través de Starfish Media Group,

una compañía de producción y distribución de material periodístico.

Why would you post a blog comment in Spanish, when only few of us can't read what you had said?
