Watch Night

Tonight: "Watch Night" 150 years ago tonight was perhaps one of the most significant in the history of enslaved Africans in America.

Chris Matthews Forgot Obama Was Black

I’m not sure what his motive was, what he was trying to say or who he was even saying it to, but so-called liberal analyst for MSNBC, Chris Matthews stated that he “forgot Obama was black for one hour” after the President’s first State of the Union Address.



His statement is a clear and present indicator that racism is top-of-the-mind with the majority in this country and the notion that America is now a “post-racial society” because of Obama’s election is nothing short of ridiculous.… Continue

Re-Post "Actual Black History"

When it comes to black history most people don’t even know that our nation’s Capital would not exist were it not for the ingenuity and wit of a black man. Most Americans are aware that it was black labor, blood, sweat and muscle that built the city of Washington DC. They have been told that slave labor laid the foundation stones and that black men lost their lives during the building and construction of, not only the white house, but several of the huge monolithic federal government buildings… Continue

Hurt People, Hurt People-Fade to Black

When we say “it starts in the home” what does that mean? When we say, “he has no home training” what does that mean? I agree that it all goes back to the home; however it goes much farther than the home. Our problems are systemic and reach way down into our psyche. How did our homes become so disjointed, fragmented and broken? Why are so many African American homes in disarray? What causes our children to be so apathetic?

When we say “it starts in the home” we are only dealing with the… Continue
