Last night, I appeared on Larry King Live to discuss the recent health care vote in the House. The discussion, which included Aisha Tyler, Kevin Madden, and Stephen Baldwin, was both interesting and civil with one exception: Alec Baldwin. Instead of offering a substantive critique of the president or a policy, Baldwin elected to name call and throw out false claims. His comments last night represent all that is wrong with American political discourse at the current moment.

Tonight, Mo’Nique won the the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. In her speech, she was dignified, brief, and poignant. The light swipe she took at her critics –who lambasted her for allegedly bucking the tradition of promoting the film for free– will be sure to provide fodder for tomorrow’s headlines. Still, her Oscar victory and powerful performance should open up new possibilities for Mo’Nique, as well as other women of color in Hollywood.

Today marks the birthday of Miriam Makeba, the legendary South African singer and civil rights activist. Although she passed a away in 2008, her genius, courage, passion, and commitment to the liberation of oppressed people will never be forgotten! Rest in power, Mama Afrika!
