SPENCER IS A (DANGEROUS) WHINY LITTLE TWIT…

November 8th, 2017

Richard Spencer is a whiny little twit, but he’s a dangerous whiny little twit. That’s why Gary Younge finally decided that interviewing the wasted mass of human genome was important. In Why interviewing Richard Spencer was a risk worth taking, Younge explains: In July this year, I interviewed the American white supremacist Richard Spencer, for […]

THE WALKING DEAD AFRICAN-AMERICANS…

October 23rd, 2017

So, after the mass murder in Las Vegas I began to ponder the question: what are the people amassing these arsenals afraid of? The public trope has been that the weapon caches are to protect real Americans from the rogue forces of a socialist/communist/liberal government. I don’t buy that. I don’t buy that because, as […]

WHITE PEOPLE… WE NEED TO TALK…

October 10th, 2017

First, Michael Harriot: In the 241 years of America’s existence, we have purposely ignored the important topic that lingers over this country’s constant pursuit of happiness. Until we can come to grips with this pressing dilemma and confront it head-on, we can never hope for peace, justice and equality. For too long we have allowed […]

AMERICA’S TRACK-SUIT-SEX-OFFENDER…

October 8th, 2017

John Oliver almost gets there. He missed the opportunity for Americans to confront the reason, not the excuse, the reason why the Slavetocracy in the Confederacy was able to finally force votes to secede from the United States: wealth. The teaching moment came at timemark 08:59. Oliver dismisses the argument, but that is the central […]

IN AMERICA, TERRORIST IS NOW THE NEW BLACK…

October 6th, 2017

COINTELPRO, the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s infamous dirty-tricks gang, is back under the guise of the FBI’s Domestic Terrorism Analysis Unit and a declaration that: Black Identity Extremist perceptions of police brutality against African Americans spurred an increase in premeditated, retaliatory lethal violence against law enforcement and will very likely serve as justification for such […]

NOT THE WORST MASS SHOOTING IN US HISTORY…

October 4th, 2017

When I first heard the news from Las Vegas on Monday morning, the reports characterized the massacre as the worst mass shooting in recent history. The question that came to my mind was, well, what was the worst mass shooting in the history of the United States? The massacre at Wounded Knee, 1890, 150 dead, […]

I’M LISTENING TO TA-NEHISI COATES THIS EVENING…

October 3rd, 2017

TIMEMARK 7:25—Great writing is necessarily a selfish act. You have something inside you that you are trying to express, or a question that you are trying to answer and you hope that the answer you produce resonates with a wider audience. TIMEMARK 45:10—Joshua Johnson: What gives you the most hope? Ta-Nehisi Coats: I get this […]

THERE IS SOMETHING THAT YOU [WE] CAN DO…

October 2nd, 2017

While The Guardian continues Live Updates into a second day, please consider this: the slaughter in Las Vegas is the 1,516th mass shooting in the United States in the last 1,735 days. In the last 57 months, 1,719 Americans have died and 6,510 have been injured in mass shootings. Look at those numbers again. 1,516 […]

Jay Silveria had an important message for U.S. Air Force Academy cadets at a moment of crisis. Five black cadet candidates at the academy’s preparatory school […]

PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS REDEFINED EPIC FAIL

September 25th, 2017

Driving between students today I was blown away by how every, and I mean every, radio news show focused on one story: President Donald John Trump’s appeal to his minions with his fire the sons of bitches meme. You might argue that Trump has distracted us from yet another zombie blowing up, but I don’t […]

HOW FOX NEWS IS BLACKING OUT AMERICANS…

September 15th, 2017

Last year Colin Kaepernick revived a movement begun by Olympians Tommie Smith and John Carlos in 1968. Not only did Kaepernick and those who took up his cause survive the American football season, but recent events like the takedown of Michael Bennett in Las Vegas have fueled the movement and athletes have carried their silent […]

TRUMP’S IDEOLOGY IS WHITE SUPREMACY…

September 14th, 2017

So, if I had read this story yesterday, I might have read a paragraph or two and moved on. Today, however, I’ve read Ta-Nehisi Coates’ latest (see below) and I have to view the story through a different lens. I’ve said before, and I still believe my thoughts to be true and honest, that the […]

POLICE, NOT POLICE UNIONS, ARE THE PROBLEM…

September 4th, 2017

The tale of Colin Kaepernick, Rodney Axson and many, many other African American athletes who chose to exercise their First Amendment rights to free speech and peaceful assembly continues despite the opposition of fans and now local police. Angela Helm, writing in Cleveland Police Union Refuses to Hold Flag During Browns’ Opening Game, Calling Player’s […]

TAKING A KNEE IS ALIVE AND WELL IN AMERICA…

September 3rd, 2017

Last Fall I wrote quite a bit about Colin Kaepernick, Rodney Axson and a movement in protest of police murders of black men. Kaepernick, and others, continue those protests this season as they should because the murders continue unabated in Northeastern Ohio and around our nation. We can only expect the extra-judicial execution of people […]

MARTIN LUTHER COON… OOPS…!

August 31st, 2017

OUR MORAL RESPONSIBILITY IS TO ASK WHY AND
CLEARLY, LOUDLY DEMAND THE DAMN ANSWER…

August 20th, 2017

Sit down. Swallow any food or drink you may have in your mouth. Place any hot beverages safely on a flat surface away from your hands. President Donald John Trump actually spoke a truth when he said, well clenched his fists and read from the teleprompter: Hatred, bigotry and violence… have been going on for […]
