ON SPIKE, STAR TREK AND SARAH

WHEN THE SAINTS COME MARCHIN IN…
Directing the ambitious World War II epic “Miracle at St. Anna” presented Spike Lee with several daunting challenges. Filming in the steep, rugged mountains and narrow, rough-hewn village streets of Tuscany, Italy presented a host of logistical problems and, since he speaks only English, Lee had his hands full directing […]

POLL THIS!

The bad news, I am no longer in the running to win this nation’s popularity contest. The good news, ask me if I care…I’m still going to tell it like it is.
For the record, I’m not one of those people that get overly excited over polls…at least not the ones that end in double in […]

THE NEGROS MUST BE CRAZY

Last Friday at a rally in Florida, Barack Obama was heckled by a group of about 20 protesters about him being endorsed by the KKK. It baffles me that Blacks still believe nonsense being shoveled by the Neo-Cons running the Republican Party. Obama handled it like the statesmen he is, saying:
“Hey young people out there […]

OBAMA: ICE COLD

A friend of mine summed it up pretty well when he said, “Now I can truly say I’ve seen everything,” after I called him on the phone and told him to quickly turn on his television. Our man Barack Obama was addressing a crowd of thousands in Coral Gables, FL when a group of about […]

WHO YOU CALLIN’ SOFT?

So I was sitting at my desk minding my own business like I normally do (although I “observe” the goings on around me) and found myself in the middle of a very intriguing conversation I want to further explore with you.
The conversation was between a black heterosexual man and a black homosexual man about black […]

WHY JOHNNY, WHY?

Dear John McCain,
Why are you doing this to us?
Is it because Bush and his Rove-led pit bulls treated you like an outsider during your past campaigns? Is it because they made you feel like rotted smelly fish, un-worthy of all the years of service you have given to the U.S. Senate as its self proclaimed […]

PALIN PICK REVEALS REPUBLICAN RACISM

Condoleezza Rice isn’t feeling Sarah Palin. When she spoke to CNN recently, the Secretary of State smiled like a loyal Republican as she praised Palin’s convention speech and dodged questions about the 18-month Alaska governor’s lack of expertise in foreign policy. “There are different kinds of experiences in life that help one to deal with […]

SPORTS: THE UNSPOKEN DRUG

As I was driving to return a rental from a long weekend trip a few weeks ago, I listened to hours of talk radio sounding off on Don Imus and his statements regarding the NFL player Pacman Jones and the whole Shaq vs. Kobe rap song. People were calling in to offer their views. A […]

HEALTH CARE IN BLACK & WHITE

The better part of my last few days have been spent with my left knee elevated, lying on my back, and trying to be remotely productive while “tweakin’” off a pain medication that could probably knock out one of those Budweiser Clydesdales. Drifting in an out of consciousness between sessions of icing my surgically repaired […]

YOUR PAIN WAS NOT IN VAIN

One would think this photo is from the 1950’s but it’s not. On November 25, 1969, some 2,000 students boycotted their classes and marched down University Avenue to a rally outside the offices of the Alachua County School Board to have the all black school known as Lincoln High integrated. You see, even though Brown […]
