Immigration vs. Black America

“You’re going to have this massive influx of immigrants into the country that are better equipped—they don’t have your legacies, they don’t have your disadvantages, they are walking across the border, they’re going to get a free lunch, they don’t have to pay dues.

Mind, Body, and Soul

Greetings Good People, I’ve recently made a conscious decision not to listen to the radio anymore as well as be more selective with which artists I choose to support. Not only is the majority of mainstream music terrible, but I always feel like my IQ drops by the time a song is over.

Author’s Spotlight: James Rollins

Greetings All, I wanted to shine a light on an author whose novels have really kept my attention for awhile now, James Rollins. New York Times Best Seller and action-adventure/thriller/history/science fiction extraordinaire, would be the best way to describe him.

Desensitized But Not Broken

I read an article in The Atlanta Black Star that discussed how the shootings of black men are psychologically affecting the black community. Clinical psychologist and Director of the Center for Mental Health Disparities at the University of Louisville, Monnica Williams, stated within the article “that these graphic images, coupled with lived experiences of racism, can…

Book Review
