If Dylann Storm Roof Was Black, Police Would Have Killed Him

  OPINION- Another mass shooting in the United States, and this time the targets were Black people in a Black church. Something of this nature hasn’t occurred in a Black church since the bombing by white supremacists of four little Black girls in Birmingham in 1963. I wasn’t even born yet and now let’s fast […]

What Does The Black Church Do, With All That Money?

OPINION – The Black Church is a big business, whether one likes to admit it or not. The Black Church alone has accumulated well over 400 billion dollars in the past 30 years. I came across an article dated back to May of 2013, concerning this staggering number. I can imagine that number has been […]

Learn To Leave The Hood Behind: The Chinx Story

OPINION – I was up bright in early this past Sunday morning when my newsfeed on social media declared Queens rapper Lionel Pickens who goes by the stage name Chinx was shot and killed in Queens. As a trapped in the 80’s and 90’s hip-hop/rap fan, I wasn’t familiar with Chinx’s body of work. All […]

Stop running around trying to make it seem like the problem is someone else. Even when you do underhanded stuff to attempt to make the real problem seem like it’s […]

I Wish Fight Videos & Disturbing Pictures Are Banned From Social Media

Share

OPINION- When I joined social media it was a direct link to staying in touch with family, friends, associates, former co-workers, and enhance networking opportunities. As the years went by, my social media feeds no longer just stayed with the cute pictures and videos of one’s baby taking their first step, graduating pre-school, high school, […]

Jason Kidd Shows The Nets That Loyalty Is Obsolete

Share

OPINION- I am going to get straight to the point. Jason Kidd, who should be a first ballot hall of famer, was literally traded to the Bucks by the Nets for 2 second round draft picks (one in 2015 and another in ’19) and a quarter water (well not really) in order to sign on […]
