Willie Wilson and his "Whitey" remark--I tried to warn you!
It was exactly one week ago that I was inspired to write Willie Wilson an open letter to try to prevent something like this from happening. But it’s done now. What we feared, he’s done. He’s shown he’s not ready for public office. Those who were courageous enough to speak out days ago knew this... Read more »

5 simple things that can help the Willie Wilson campaign

Since Willie Wilson supporters didn't like my open letter, I created "Cookie Pope" from two of America's wildly popular and sensational iconic black females because everybody knows, when Olivia and Cookie talk, people listen.
Okay Willie Wilson supporters. You win.  I read your comments that you so kindly shared with me after writing what I thought was a heartfelt open letter to Dr. Willie Wilson. (Click here to read my letter.)  You are absolutely right. I am not a politician. I do not live in the city anymore, thank God.... Read more »

Remembering Bobby Womack: His death lifts the lid off my heart
Death is inevitable. We know this. But there are some people when you hear about their passing, it just hits you hard.
