OPINION/POLITICS

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

SARAH PALIN:
DON’T GIVE A DOG A BONE

Every September my daughter’s elementary school sends home a notice from the police department with advice on keeping kids safe on the walk to and from school. Along with reminders about looking both ways before crossing the street, avoiding strangers, traveling in groups, etc. there’s a section on what a kid should do if she […]

TRUTHINESS AND COUNTRY FIRST

Maybe if I didn’t know the history of how this country came to be. Maybe if I wasn’t keenly aware of how we came to be here in this country to begin with. Maybe if the first ship arriving with its precious human cargo to this country hadn’t been forced to adopt the same […]

THE DISAPPEARING BLACK VOTE

Last summer while I was shopping at my local grocery store, I saw the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen in my life. I approached her and we had a great conversation walking through the grocery store shopping together. At the checkout line we exchanged numbers, I couldn’t wait to call her later that […]
