Transparency is Important

November 10, 2017

Greensboro voters have elected council newcomers Michelle Kennedy (At-Large) and Tammy Thurm (District 5) as representatives for the next four years along with incumbents Yvonne Johnson (At-Large), Marikay Abuzuaiter (At-Large), Sharon Hightower (District 1), Goldie Wells (District 2), Justin Outling (District 3), Nancy Hoffmann (District 4) and Mayor Nancy Vaughan. Win or lose, all of […]


Car buying with add-ons seldom a good deal

November 3, 2017

It’s that time of year again when auto dealers try to make room in their showrooms and lots for next year’s models. The seasonal clearance sales that come right before the holidays are just as tempting as ever, beckoning consumers to get that proverbial ‘new car fever.’ But don’t let those shiny new cars blind […]


Just wake me when it’s over

October 13, 2017

Remember that song by both the Supremes and the Four Tops – wake me when it’s over? The singers felt like they were having a bad dream – their partners were about to leave them for “the love of a stranger,” and all they wanted to do was be awakened at the end. Unfortunately, we […]


Garifunas in the African Diaspora

October 6, 2017

We first met at a new faculty orientation. Nodia had recently moved into a full-time Spanish-language teaching position at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro and I serve as Dean of the Honors College at the university. Our connection was immediate given Nodia’s background as a Garifuna (a person of African and Native American […]


This flag is drenched in blood

I am not sure why the “National Anthem” and the so-called American flag are part of our nation’s sports pageantry. Before 2009, while the National Anthem was played, sports gladiators were not required to suit up, stand up, and put their hands to their hearts and why should they? The song that is sung is […]


A New Poor People’s Campaign and Moral Revival is Coming

September 15, 2017

Channeling the incisive analysis of our best historians, TaNehisi Coates cut through the talking points of political pundits last week to name Donald Trump America’s “First White president.” Writing for The Atlantic, the National Book Award recipient made clear how there could be no Donald Trump without President Obama. The chaos from which the whole […]


Trump’s DACA Action is Un-American

September 8, 2017

President Trump has made the decision to reverse the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA program), putting more than three quarters of a million young people at risk for deportation. So how did we get to this point? In 2001 Congress introduced the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act, known widely as the […]


Ignoring race in redrawing districts big GOP blunder

To many legal experts, it’s hard to believe that Republican legislative leaders deliberately redrew new voting maps for the state House and Senate – as ordered by a three-judge federal court – without incorporating race as one of the nine criteria guiding the process. After all, it was the abusive, and according to the U.S. […]


Statues, monuments and memorials

September 1, 2017

Many people are highly insulted by Confederate statues and monuments, and they want them taken down and/or destroyed. Since the latest movement in New Orleans to eliminate these relics that commemorate folks who tried to secede from the Union, resulting in a war that cost 700,000 lives, some Black people have been asking the questions: […]


Confederate statues are falling, not economic racism

August 24, 2017

Cheers to New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, one of the first mayors to take Confederate statues down and to make the strong point that these statues represent nothing but oppression. More cheers to Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh who had statues removed in the dead of night to avoid Charlottesville-type confrontations between racist White supremacists (also […]
