Let me tell you about America’s Black sheep

During his final days, the Lord Jesus Christ was perhaps at the lowest point in his life. If you know the story – Jesus was marked for death before he was born, so his life wasn’t a bowl of chocolates or cherries. Time to die As the end approached, Jesus informed his so-called friends, much […]

Random thoughts of a free Black mind, v. 296

Random thoughts of a free Black mind, v. 296

Getting what you pray for – You want something (or somebody) SO BADLY. And when you finally ‘win,’ you’re in hell, or you don’t know what to do with what you’ve got. It’s like a dog chasing a car that finally stops – or marrying somebody who’s truly nuts. Now what? I’ve seen that happen […]

Time for Black Greek organizations to lead

Time for Black Greek organizations to lead

Remember the scene from “New Jack City” when Nino Brown (Wesley Snipes) told Scotty (Ice-T), “This ain’t personal. This is business”? And at the end of the movie, Scotty said to Nino, “This IS personal,” as he proceeded to give him a beatdown. Well, this article is both personal and business. It’s a call to […]

Lessons from FOX and O’Reilly

Lessons from FOX and O’Reilly

Former FOX News anchor Bill O’Reilly, the man whose lofty ratings were responsible for the growth of the network, is no longer on the air. “The O’Reilly Factor” dominated the 8 p.m. weekday hour, drawing more viewers than any other cable network.

Blacks, Hispanics overdue for intense dialogue on race

Thanks to former Florida State Republican Sen. Frank Artiles, D-Hialeah, the scab covering Black-Hispanic tension in South Florida has been ripped off. Artiles, a Cuban-American, was bold, arrogant and dumb enough to launch a racist and sexist tirade in the presence of two Black senate colleagues at a favorite watering hole of the power elite […]

Trump, depending on China, leads from behind

Trump, depending on China, leads from behind

Here’ an excerpt from an April 21 newspaper story in the Asia Times: “President Obama reportedly warned President-elect Trump that dealing with a belligerent North Korea will be his most urgent and vexing foreign-policy challenge. “Sure enough, the consensus among world leaders today is that North Korea poses an existential threat not just to its […]

What kind of foolish hater are you?

What kind of foolish hater are you?

Unfortunately, many children at one time or another say they hate one or both of their parents. This behavior is unacceptable. But it’s understandable for toddlers, adolescents and even immature teenagers. Maybe Mama told you not to eat cookies and candy and preferred that you ate fruits and vegetables. Perhaps Daddy told you to be […]

Random thoughts of a free Black mind, v. 295

Bill O’Reilly is no longer a ‘Factor’ – It was about the money, not the sexual harassment charges.  Fox did cost-benefit analysis and dumped O’Reilly when advertisers dumped his show, a contagion that could spread to the network. Which brings me to… Florida legislative apologies and ‘beg-pardons’– Don’t let that Florida sunshine and the smell […]

Trump joins Democrats in the ‘War Party’

Trump joins Democrats in the ‘War Party’

In 2016, Donald Trump turned the political world upside down, and not just because his victory prevailed against conventional wisdom. Trump claimed to want a new direction in foreign policy. Gone would be the trade deals that sent American workers on a race to an endless bottom. He said that he wanted a new relationship […]
