The Image of the NYPD Cop That Made Me Smile

I am notorious for writing about the NYPD in a bad light. I have constantly been against stop-and-frisk and other tactics that are used mostly against the Black and Latinos in the community. I have witnessed the way they interact with us, which has caused the majority of distrust in those same communities. The NYPD’s […]

Chris Brown Has To Realize, The Standards Are Different When You Black

OPINION – I remember when R&B and sometimes rapper (depending on whom you ask) Chris Brown came onto the scene with the boy next door persona, captivating hearts and ears. Brown’s boyish good looks was the icing on the cake to pull off the Double Mint gum ads, the movie roles and music that wasn’t […]

Truth Should Never Hurt

We live a world where far too many people do not embrace truth.  Many people love to run from truth and make excuses about it.  When you fail to face truth candidly, directly and willingly, you will find yourself living a life saturated with problems.  Most of those problems are self-imposed.  One of the fundamental […]

I have recently said that Facebook has been all about sharing too much information.

I ran across a status update that […]

Racial Profiling

The Case of the International Version of Racial Profiling

LONDON – The police in the United States aren’t the only ones who get all excited to profile and violate a person of color constitutional rights; it is also the norm all over the world.

Phil Jackson

Now That Phil Jackson Is With The Knicks, I need Dolan to Fade to Black

OPINION – Being a Knick fan has to be one of the most painstaking affiliations in all of sports. I’ve been a Knick fan since Kenny “Skywalker” used to literally sky high with his deaf defying dunks (did I just reveal my age?). Nevertheless, I have watched countless disappointing seasons and playoff and finals losses […]

Dozens of packets of heroin were […]

Every year we see the flyers making their way on social media, depicting Martin Luther King in a way that is shameful and downright disturbing to celebrate MLK day. This year, the flyer has MLK chucking up the deuces with a gold chain around his neck, and if I didn’t know better, he is sagging […]
