Who Cares About the Color of Obama’s Cabinet?
Tom weighed in on a trending story about the lack of color in President Obama’s cabinet. Tom isn’t at all concerned about the color of Obama’s employees, so long as they’re working together to turn this country around. Check out what our fans had to say:
Why Do Black Folks Especially Feel That This President is the second coming he is a human being just like the rest of us subject to mistakes and not putting more BLACKS and WOMEN in his cabinet is one of them,they were good enough to get him to the party but not good enough to help him get this country back on track!!!–Michele Inge
The president has so much pressure on him ad it is people. Pump your breaks. He already under a microscope. Be honest too many black folks in the kitchen something is bound to burn. Then there goes more complaints. Let the man try to do his job to the best of his ability. Cause if your not part of the solution then your part of the problem. IJS–Yoshicka Snow
It is not about Diversity, it is about selecting the best people for the jobs to get us out of this mess created by the last Administration. Patience is a Virtue, so give him cooperation to make this a better place for us and our children regardless of Race, Creed or color. Be Blessed!—Sarah Walker

Happy Birthday Sister President, Michelle Obama . You are my She-role. Thanks for taking care of our President.—Pamela Davis
Robin Roberts is Ready For Her Comeback
We all love Robin Roberts. The degree of strength and grace she has shown throughout her cancer ordeals is inspiring. Many of Tom’s Facebook fans are praying for Robin. Here are a few of our favorite comments:
I will pray for you sweet robin . My mother at 81 faced that , and recovered . She turned 94 this last September.—John Carrillo
Amen, U r another 1 of God’s miracles. Ur strength and determination r applaudible & gives others courage. Welcome back Sis!—Michelle Wyatt-Temoney
Robin, you are an inspiration. My co-worker and I were diagnosed with breast cancer a month a part. We both feel, if we had to have cancer at least we were able to do it together. Having another support person helped a lot.—Melanie Grizzle
Photo Gallery – Celebs Who Got in Trouble for Using the N-Word
The new movie “Django Unchained” has caused a lot of buzz, especially for its use of the N-word throughout the movie. This week Django’s director, Quentin Tarantino, also raised eyebrows when he used the N-word during a press conference. You had much to say about it:
My question is how can we expect others to respect us n we don’t respect ourselves! When a white person kills one of ours we’re outraged, when we kill one of our own its just another day at the office! Smh.—Dexter Harris
When our beloved Richard Pryor visited the mother land and saw what he did, he swore that a “N” like himself, would never use the “N” word again. No doubt it was used back in slavery, but to use it now is worth “A Mighty Ass Whipping” Ya Heard!!!!!— Waymon Gorham
NRA Video Targets President Obama’s Daughters
In an ad created by the National Rifle Association, the organization criticized President Obama for wanting gun control laws while using the U.S. Secret Service to protect his daughters. Did the NRA cross the line by using the Obama children in the ad? Many of you thought so:
The NRA will say anything to keep their flow of killing machines into the streets. Got Blacks killing blacks and then you have GZ’s gunning down blacks. If our youth aren’t dead they are in jail. It’s a annihilation of a race. No need for the KKK.—Crystal Dillard
