New Era Detroit

Greetings Everyone, When it comes to community outreach, I’ve noticed that the programs that are the most effective are the ones anchored from those same communities. Those sponsored and funded by elite corporations who are just looking to make money tend to get the most recognition, but they very seldom make a lasting impact. Which…

Greetings Good People, Are you located in the Carolinas and looking for a place to get some volunteer hours? Well, this past weekend I volunteered at the Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina, and I had to share their information for those who may be looking to help.

BLEXIT

Greetings All, For the past few months, I’ve been seeing the term BLEXIT trending on social media. Public figures like Kanye West and Candace Owens have helped popularize the word in the political arena, mainly to promote a “Black Exit” from the Democratic Party.

The Tulsa Real Estate Fund

Greetings Everyone, The topic of sovereignty within my community has been discussed throughout this blog in previous posts, and I wanted to continue highlighting viable solutions that will get us there.

S.T.E.P

Greetings Good People, A few weeks back I finished reading The Man-Not: Race, Class, Genre, and The Dilemmas of Black Manhood by Professor Tommy Curry. His book provided a detailed analysis of the disproportionate victimization of Black men throughout American history, as well as present-day. Although the information was substantial, I found myself disappointed with how…

Beyond Scared of The Circumstance, Not The Kids

“African-American youth, I mean, to a point where they’ve just about never done more poorly, there’s no spirit, there’s killings on an hourly basis virtually in places like Baltimore and Chicago and many other places. There’s no spirit.” – Donald Trump “I don’t know how you would characterize the gang leaders who got 13-year-old kids…
