Devilish desperation is dangerous

Devilish desperation is dangerous

Everybody in the world has faced desperation at one time or another. Good people will rise up, stand up and figure out a way to improve their situations. On the other hand, the wicked and deceitful will lean on their animalistic and satanic instincts and resort to negativity, extremism, danger and violence! Rising violence Bombings, […]

President Trump’s cruel war on children

President Trump’s cruel war on children

Our nation’s budget should reflect our nation’s professed values, but President Trump’s 2018 Federal Budget, “A New Foundation for America’s Greatness,” radically does the opposite. This immoral budget declares war on America’s children, our most vulnerable group, and the foundation of our nation’s current and future economic, military and leadership security. Shreds safety net It […]

A timid GOP is mystifying and perilous

A timid GOP is mystifying and perilous

I have no doubt that much of the mainstream media and Democratic leadership were wishing that President Trump’s historic and successful overseas trip would be a failure or be marred in controversy. The country be damned! To them, peace in the Mideast; defeat of terrorism; reassertion of America’s leadership role in the world; and leaking […]

Trump kisses up to Saudis, kisses off Europe

Trump kisses up to Saudis, kisses off Europe

One of the many unseemly things about President Donald Trump is his longing admiration for dictators that I ridiculed as “dictator envy” in a previous column. But even I was left stupefied as I watched him play über dictator on the world stage last week. Specifically, Trump began his first presidential trip abroad at an […]

Brooks’ firing shows NAACP is clueless

Brooks’ firing shows NAACP is clueless

The NAACP used to be a storied organization that was a major player in the historic fight for full equality for Blacks in America. That was before they got bought out by the Democratic Party in the early 1970s; before they bowed downed to the alter of the homosexual community; and before they sold themselves […]

NAACP should continue to clean house

NAACP should continue to clean house

The national office of the NAACP has made a couple of significant changes lately; they dismissed Chairwoman Roslyn Brock and President Cornell Brooks.  Although I served in various capacities within the Cincinnati branch for nine years (2005-2014), through which we did excellent work for our community, I have not been a fan of the national […]

In the media, game recognizes game

In the media, game recognizes game

I moved to the state of Florida in 1975 and, God willing, I hope to move out of the Sunshine State in 2017. I’m not trying to move because I’m mad with the state. I just think it is time for me to return to my hometown, Atlanta, Georgia. I feel like during my stay […]

Random thoughts of a free Black mind, v. 300

Random thoughts of a free Black mind, v. 300

First Lady Omarosa Manigault Newman – Welcome, sister, to the Sunshine State! (For those who don’t know, she married Pastor John Allen Newman of The Sanctuary @ Mount Calvary in Jacksonville.) Questions. (1) Why do some Black people literally hate an HBCU graduate who, without being asked or paid, has decided on her own to […]

Chasing a boogeyman called Russia

Chasing a boogeyman called Russia

One of my favorite books is “The Black Power Imperative,” by Theodore Cross.  The author states that there is no more power than that of information and communication.  When there is a coup or revolution, the first things the victors do is seize all radio and television stations and begin their propaganda and dogma.  One […]

Sessions, Holder and mass Black incarceration

Sessions, Holder and mass Black incarceration

Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the deep-fried racist from Alabama, would like to turn the clock back to pre-Emancipation, but will settle for a return to the good old days of Bill Clinton, the mega-incarcerating con man from Hope, Arkansas. It is important to maintain an historical perspective on the actual policies that are being pushed […]
