Rev. Barber’s Poor People’s Assembly and Moral March Will Be “Generationally Transformative”

February 20, 2020

“There’s no way we can inspire people to move with the normal politics that doesn’t fully address poverty. When you can work a full-time job at minimum wage and still not be able to afford a two-bedroom apartment anywhere in this country, that’s poor. And if we can’t see that and if we don’t acknowledge […]

Hair discrimination is alive and well

February 13, 2020

Andrew Johnson, a high school wrestler, was forced to submit to the humiliating act of having his dreadlocks shorn or have his New Jersey team forfeit their match to the opposing team. A gleeful White woman seemed too pleased to invade the young man’s person, and his team won, but at what price? When this […]

Black America’s Housing Crisis: Homeowners to renters

February 7, 2020

No matter who you are, or where you live, there’s a central concern that links consumers all over the country: the ever-rising cost of living. For many consumers, the combined costs of housing, transportation, food, and utilities leave room for little else from take-home pay. From Boston west to Seattle, and from Chicago to Miami […]

Detractor-in-Chief overstates economic progress

January 30, 2020

Donald John Trump has been impeached, and to let him tell it, that isn’t bothering him, and we’d believe him if he hadn’t posted more than 130 tweets in just one day. But his persistent overuse of the word “hoax,” both to refer to impeachment and to anything else he doesn’t like (see: climate change), […]

Dear White People: Stop worrying about becoming a minority

January 16, 2020

Why are so many White people afraid? Why is there terror in their eyes when they hear that by the year 2050 White people will be a minority in this country? I am here to tell all those concerned White people not to worry. When you become a minority we will never insist on you […]

Will money rule in the U.S. Presidential race?

January 10, 2020

Democrats started this Presidential campaign season with more than 20 candidates. Eventually, it dropped to about a dozen, with, so far, only five of those “qualified” to appear on the next debate stage. But debate performance doesn’t seem to matter much. Both Senator Kamala Harris and former Obama cabinet member Julian Castro having had excellent […]

Looking to 2020 — Put your vote to work!

January 1, 2020

If you work for a living but are somewhat up in the air about who to vote for in 2020 or for that matter, if you should even bother getting to that crowded polling place, I’d like to ask that you indulge me for a minute. Because I’ve got a story to tell you that […]

Trump is leading a revolution that is destroying America

December 26, 2019

The House has indicted the president for abuse of his office — trying to enlist a foreign government to intervene in our election by announcing an investigation of his potential opponent in the upcoming presidential race and for obstruction of justice in his extreme efforts to block the congressional investigation of his abuses. This is […]

President Trump’s war on the poor

December 19, 2019

Donald Trump is famed for his head-snapping reversals. One day he’s taking troops out of the Middle East; the next he’s sending more in. One day he’s on the verge of an agreement with China on trade; the next he’s tweeting about holding off until after the election. On one thing, however, Trump and his […]

House judiciary impeachment hearings

December 12, 2019

Last week brilliant constitutional law professors testified in Congress on the grounds for impeaching the President of the United States after hearing the facts coming from the Intelligence Committee under the direction of Chairman Adam Schiff.
