Wright - Melissa Harris Perry conducts an intelligent discussion concerning the distortion surrounding the prophetic preaching of Reverend Dr. Jeremiah Wright and Black Liberation Theology with her panel.

Monument in Palisades Park, N.J. Honoring World War II Korean Comfort Women, Irritates Japanese Officials - NYTimes.com

Monument in Palisades Park, N.J., Irritates Japanese Officials - NYTimes.com

Japan needs to face up to it's history of imperialism and human rigjts abuses. It's dastardly crimes against the people of Asia are part of it's past. Unlike Germany, Japan was not forced by the victorious Allies after World War II to atone for it's crimes against humanity. This was largely due to the fear of Japan succumbing to the spreading wave of communism in Asia after Mao Tse Tung's victory in the Chinese Civil War.

The legacy of the forced prostitution of Korean women is real. Japan should be loudly criticized, in the world community, for after sixty years still stubbornly refusing to acknowledge it's past. Acknowledging this history is an important step in preventing such atrocities from occurring in the future.

There are still comfort women alive today. They never received reparations for their forced sexual slavery. Japan,incredulously still maintains that these women volunteered to be serially gang raped by Japanese soldiers. Their legacy of suffering must be memorialized around the world. This must never happen again.

Are the rich America's job creators? Mitt Romney is running on his record as a really rich guy who created lots and lots and lots of jobs. How many? That depends on when you ask, but for the sake of sanity let's just say he claims lots. But back in March at the TED (Technology, Entertainment and Design) Conference in Long Beach, California attendees heard something wonktastically different. Nick Hanauer, one of the founding investors of Amazon gave an eyebrow-raising talk that casts quite a bit of doubt on Mitt Romney's biggest campaign asset — that the rich are super-awesome at creating jobs. Watch Hanauer's remarks in the clip above and catch the Amazon co-founder tonight in a Last Word exclusive.

The Psychological Profile of Liberals


"Just by virtue of their ideological stance, liberals can tolerate difference, they can tolerate not knowing, wondering ‘it could be this, it could be that.’ They can tolerate someone saying, ‘you’ve got it wrong.’ Liberals are just more open to all of that. It’s less of a problem, it’s less of a concern. They’re much more open to compromise, more open to experience—what would otherwise be threatening to people would not be as threatening because of their ideological disposition."

- Scott Eidelman, a social psychologist at the University of Arkansas

Romney is lying about people not talking about gay people in the 1960s. I was in prep school in the 1960s and it was a very common thing for boys to insult and demean other boys by accusing them of being homosexual. In addition I do not believe Romney when he claims he does not remember battering the young man at his prep school. He committed a crime and should have been arrested.
