We Are Global Citizens

We Are Global Citizens
Transparency.org’s Corruption Perceptions Index, “which ranks 180 countries and territories by their perceived levels of public sector corruption according to experts(?) And business people…” states that no country is free of public sector corruption. Of course this comes as no surprise to the overwhelming majority of the citizens of any of these countries but it...

Going My Way?

Going My Way?
If after emancipation the goal was integration into main stream business, political and social life in America, we’ve made tremendous strides and we’ve reached that promised land. If the goal however was to create a respected, strong, secure and economically stable Afro American community we’ve actually digressed from where we were headed before the intervention...

Antithesis of the Wakandan State

Antithesis of the Wakandan State
To be honest I had little to no interest in seeing Marvels Black Panther when it was initially released in theaters. I’m just not into Marvel or any other comic book characters. But listening to members of my community articulating how the image of a prosperous and successfully ran Black Nation flooded them with hope... Read more »

Lets Get Our Moneys Worth
Robert Johnson sold BET (Black Entertainment Television) to Viacom and the majority control of RLJ Entertainment, which owns, UMC (Urban Movie Channel) to AMC. Congrats Mr. Johnson.

Instead Of Marching Lets Try This...
While watching the Putin-Trump 2018 summit I couldn’t help but notice the lack of representation of Afro Americans in that room. Not to suggest by any means that we have a place there or would want to be a part of this new dysfunctional world order, but our obvious absence nonetheless reminds me of the... Read more »

Incompetence On Display For All To See

Incompetence On Display For All To See
We are so much better than this! Is there any wonder remaining why we are where we are? 14.5% of the population of America. We spend over a trillion dollars a year in this country and leadership shuts down a major expressway to bring attention to what again? Have we honestly exhausted all of our... Read more »

Russia; The Capital Of White Supremacy

Russia; The Capital Of White Supremacy
What’s curiously absent from the arguments swirling around this president that has always been a fiery point of contention usually initiated by republicans and their allies are the accusations of a socialist, a socialist sympathizer or a socialist agenda. What’s curious is that this president boldly embrace and support the regimes of socialist and dictators... Read more »

Slow Down Sista Maxine

The Tribune reported that Congresswoman Maxine Waters “called for the continuing public harassment of Trump administration officials.” (http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/politics/ct-maxine-waters-trump-20180625-story.html) Did the Congresswoman just put a bullseye on our community? There is a good portion of Trumps base and allies who view the Congresswoman as the image and voice of the Afro American community. That being said I’m... Read more »

Wrong Side Of The Cross

It seems that there are more Afro American churches that support this administration because of its “pro-Christian” platform than I would’ve liked to assume. Some of the discussions I’ve had with congregants of these institutions based on this is very disturbing to say the least. Now by all means this is America and your vote... Read more »
