The Pact

“No one can tell me that I can’t succeed. I’ve come to believe that every goal in life is obtainable and that the only limitations are the ones you set for yourself. For some, the road to success is merely based on taking advantage of opportunities provided to them. For others, the road is much…

Nature vs. Black America

As hopeful as this clip was, I still found myself annoyed—not with Hurricane Harvey survivors, the Richard family, but with the circumstance. Because this scene and the results are all too familiar. For the past few weeks, there have been several debates on climate change, chemtrails, and even spiritual-based theories regarding the natural disasters that…

Words From The Wise: The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan

“Don’t you lose hope, get some hope. But if you give up because you had a setback, you’ll never win. Nobody goes forward in warfare and doesn’t have to make a retreat, a strategic retreat, to develop where they were weak to come back strong. But when you give up and punk out; ‘there’s no…

Color Blind or Blind To Reality?

Initially, I wasn’t going to address the topic of interracial relationships. But after seeing my community’s response to Dr. Umar Johnson’s Roland Martin interview, I would be doing a disservice if I didn’t finally get some things off my chest. Before I delve into my personal views on this topic, let’s go back in history…

Be Nice, Children

“Children are ultimately born to the community because they will influence the nature of the community. If the children that are born in the community are self-hating or have problems with their identity or self-controlled or destructive and so forth, you will see a community that will fall apart, a community that is at odds…
