Ben Carson + Rap Ad = ZERO

I am pissed. Insulted. Exasperated. Horrified. Totally outdone.  The audacity of Dr. Ben Carson to either be used or allowed himself and black people to be made a mockery of during this presidential campaign by making a trifling, low budget rap ad is a new low, even for him.  I just can’t comprehend through all… Continue reading Ben Carson + Rap Ad = ZERO

The Presidential Debates: Void on African American Issues

While I lean mostly liberal in my political views, this time around I am expecting the presidential candidates on both sides of the aisle to speak specifically to the needs of the African American community.  I want them to touch on more than police brutality and the criminal justice system.

2016 Presidential Hopefuls and Their Silence on Black Issues

Maybe I’ve missed it, but have any of the 2016 Presidential hopefuls begin to articulate how they will address black issues?  Have they begin to answer any of the following questions: What are you going to do about the police officers who murder unarmed black men, women, boys and girls?

He Did That: President Obama’s SOTU Address Was Pitch Perfect!

My earlier post talked about expecting the President to come strong during his State of the Union Address...something I've coined as #2ndTermSwag.  Well, he did that and more!  As everyone has said throughout social media, the comment of the night was "I have no more campaigns to run.  I know because I won both of them"!… Continue reading He Did That: President Obama’s SOTU Address Was Pitch Perfect!
