More rats will jump off Trump’s sinking ship

A wharf rat is a large rat that is commonly found on wharves. These kinds of rats often sustain themselves by pilfering from warehouses near the seaside or from ships. When the rats board a ship, they don’t all line up like they were following the Pied Piper and get on board all at once. […]

‘Pathfinders’ for Black History Month

When I wrote my book, “Surviving and Thriving: 365 Facts in Black Economic History,” I hoped that some folks would touch the book each day and talk about the many ways African-American people have shaped our nation’s economic life, from building this country, to being the basis of our bond system.  Despite my work, and […]

Democrats’ rhetoric risks violence

CLARENCE V. MCKEE, ESQ. GUEST COLUMNIST Before Democrats jump for joy and do high fives celebrating the attempt by protesters to block Education Secretary Betsy DeVos from entering a District of Columbia middle school – amid reports that police are investigating whether she was assaulted – they had better realize how dangerous their leaders’ inciting […]

Some folks have Trump Derangement Syndrome

HARRY C. ALFORD GUEST COLUMNIST There is something going around throughout the United States that is causing anger, almost to the point of insanity. It is turning our media into a fake news machine.  You can turn to Fox News and get one story and then turn to CNN or MSNBC and get a different […]

Resist Trump and resist the Democrats

Resistance is the new watch word for millions of people who oppose Donald Trump and his administration.

Is Obama the Republicans’ little helper?

Editor’s note: This Gantt Report commentary was originally published in the May 10, 2013 issue of the Florida Courier-more than three years before Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump. It is not unusual for editorial readers to disagree with The Gantt Report opinion columns. People don’t like it when I write about […]

Random thoughts of a free Black mind, v. 292

Kenny Kinsler, 1955-2016 – As 2017 begins, I’m writing another obituary for another schoolmate. This time, it’s my high school basketball teammate Kenny Kinsler, who died last week at age 61. He was a year ahead of me at Seabreeze Senior High School in Daytona Beach. We were some of the first Black “jocks” to […]

Donald Trump’s immigration ignorance

Donald Trump’s immigration ignorance

The president’s recent executive order was allegedly a political policy aimed at making Americans safe by banning entry into the United States by people from seven predominately Muslim countries that seek to enter U.S. cities.
