Y'all know I'm not the touchy-feely type but this weekends events in DC ( Glenn Beck's Restoring Honor verses Al Sharpton's counter ) sparked yet another " radical " notion: why not have a national, non-partisan event where liberal and conservative speakers can offer their ideas in the spirit of intellectual freedom and…

The Right comments ad naseum about the " liberal plantation "; " Welfare State " ( ironically built brick-by-brick by both parties ). etc.
This article isn't an addition to that well documented monologue. It's my assessment on a group of allegedly well-intentioned folks who left their high ground on civil rights in favor of new lows in exploitation.
We know the Imperial Left decreed all Black folks should be Democrats.… Continue

Jack Kemp was everything the Republican Party should be but isn't.
Genuinely inclusive; knowledgeable about various groups contributions to America and unafraid to denounce discrimination and shortsightedness on his side of the aisle.
Where is THAT kind of Republican and conservative after the Obama victory? We'd be hard pressed to envision…

Not satisfied with presidential defeat at the hands of the Democrats last term, the Imperial Right seems even more hell-bent to disqualify itself for national contention by continued promotion of state-sanctioned religiosity, the very thing thing they denounce within Islamic nations !?!
By the light of their ( rhetorically ) burning crosses, only a highly politicized version of Christianity and grudgingly, Judaism, would be… Continue

A SHORT EXCERPT OF MY THOUGHTS ON A RECENT POLITICAL EVENT:
At least daily I say: " My God, when people rally against building places of worship ( specifically the proposed Ground Zero Mosque ) the bad guys have won... in spades. " Image if terrorists trotted this out as a Trojan Horse to provoke this response for propaganda purposes? Appearing to be a nation of multi-hued rednecks doesn't quite help win hearts and minds abroad nor… Continue

An economy on life support; two ground wars going nowhere and a *( half ) Black president presiding over the biggest Black unemployment rate in an era, what's a brother to do?

This brother ( me )…

I used to tease my late maternal grandmother about how much I enjoyed the George H. W. Bush years. A Truman Democrat who bore little resemblance to her current party, she was a social studies teacher and as such a constant political companion.
The first President Bush was a moderate, as am I and others associated with a a GOP whose center seems…

As a communality policing advocate I occupy the No Mans Land 'tween liberals yearning to pull every Black community combatant to their heaving bosoms while also standing athwart conservatives who reflexively assume EVERY traffic stop or officer-involved use of force involving Black subjects is justified.

I'm not a law enforcement groupie nor a cop hater. Being Black, male and a concerned citizen means falling…
