Black News Directors, Columnists, Reporters And The Like. Rea my comment very carefully. A 70 year old Evolutionary Elder who is own publicity person, I ask where are the Simeon Booker's who once worked with our Black media ? I remember people like Calvin Rolarkand the late William Raspberry. I remember them because when people like me with good news, they reported it. Today, for me, I find it difficult to get a positiv story in the Black owned and operated media outlets. these are some of the responses I receive. " Call me back latter; I am about to leave for a meeting." for a meeting." Send me your press release. Your story idea is a good one, but it does not fit the theme of this weeks edition. Sorry, I did not received the books you sent me. We are short staffed. Can you send me a photograph" and the like. Should they all just go out of business and let the main streat media provide the Black community with the news it it needs? You see, I know some of the Blacks personally.

"Not that desegregation is wrong. But I never believed that you could cure people who are damaged by the American culture simply by submersing them in a situation in which they were the overwhelming minority. It didn't make sense." -- the late Pulitzer-Prize winning Columnist William Raspberry, who died several days ago; the quote was taken from a previously recorded interview by NPR's Michel Martin.

I lament the passing of columnist William Raspberry. Though he has been retired for several years and I did not always agree with him, I remember hiim as a champion of civil discourse, one who could argue a position without rant, who could understand opposing views, and did not vilify those who disagreed with him. David Brooks and George Will seem to be among the few left who carry on the tradition of rational thought (though GW shows more of William Buckley's beautifully crafted acerbic language).
He called himself a 'solutionist.' It's not what's 'right' or 'left' that counts, he would say; it's what works.
William Raspberry, the great columnist for the Washington Post has passed. He may have been the most fair commentator on politics ever. He took a position on nearly every important issue in the last forty years and that position was always his own. He will be missed.
Columnist William Raspberry died Tuesday. This is a column he wrote in 2005, shortly before his retirement. — the editor.
William Raspberry, a liberal columnist for the Washington Post, just died. He used to call Rush Limbaugh a bigot, racist, and all the names other liberals called him. That is until Raspberry actually listened to him. It just took a week of listening that turned him around. He didn't become a fan but at least understood that he wasn't a racist. That why so many people call Limbaugh names because they don't listen to him, they listen to others who stick their fingers in their ears and pronounce judgement. I dare anyone who actually believes Limbaugh is a racist to listen to him for a week and think the same thing. I think that if you believe Rush is a racist, you probably haven't listened to him.
"Organized religion must mean more than what the pastorate does. It must mean also what we do because we believe what we believe, and it must be because we take seriously the admonition, 'Feed my sheep.' That’s what we’re called upon to do, and if we do it through organized religion, so much the better." --William Raspberry (1935–2012), speaking at a Cathedral Sunday Forum in 2008. May light perpetual shine upon him.
"… in virtually every public controversy, most thoughtful people secretly believe both sides.The second, which has kept my confidence from turning into arrogance, is that it is entirely possible for you to disagree with me without being, on that account, either a scoundrel or a fool." - William Raspberry, longtime Washington Post columnist and Pulitzer Prize winner, with the two important lessons he said he had learned. Mr. Raspberry died yesterday at 76.
Bill Raspberry provided a voice for the hitherto silent.
I'll breeze right past the fact that the heaviest mail day of my career as a newspaper columnist came when I announced the end of that career. What I want to think about instead is something that is enormously flattering and still a little mysterious.

William Raspberry (October 12, 1935 – July 17, 2012) was a Pulitzer Prize-winning syndicated American public affairs columnist.
