By enforcing climate change denial, Trump puts us all in peril

September 21, 2018

North Carolina has been hit with a storm of biblical ferocity. Florence has left at least 17 dead there, 500,000 without power, with flash flooding across the state from the coast to the western mountains. Landslides and infectious diseases are predicted to follow. North Carolina is not alone, of course. We’ve witnessed the devastation wrought […]


Breaking the gubernatorial glass ceiling

September 13, 2018

“Now we have Black and White elected officials working together. Today, we have gone beyond just passing laws. Now we have to create a sense that we are one community, one family. Really, we are the American family.” – John Lewis, U.S. Congressman (D-Ga.) In the 241-year history of the United States, four African American […]


Kavanaugh must not join the high court

September 7, 2018

It is confidence in the men and women who administer the judicial system that is the true backbone of the rule of law.” — “Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, 531 U.S. 98, Bush v. Gore [Dissent], December 12, 2000 There are many words one could use to describe President Trump’s White House, but you […]


Black wealth plummeting and will be wiped out by 2053

August 31, 2018

For years, and particularly in recent months, major news outlets have heralded the nation’s robust economic recovery. From rising corporate profits, to lower unemployment, or rising stock prices on Wall Street, many consumers might conclude that financial stability not only returned after the Great Recession but continues to climb. But for people of color, and […]


Omarosa is not your dog, Trump!

August 24, 2018

I am no fan of Omarosa Manigault Newman, the mononymous diva who dominates the airwaves whenever she wants to. Her new book, Unhinged, which I won’t read, is billed as a tell-all on 45’s White House and its shenanigans. In making the rounds, Omierosie (my nickname for her) has played tapes that seem to corroborate […]


When will all the lying end?

August 16, 2018

I wake up in the morning listening to the craziness in the White House or one of the agencies in this administration or some weird activity over on Capitol Hill. I only write articles for publication once each week, but I truly feel sorry for press who are charged with analyzing, writing and talking about […]


Congress must act to strengthen election security

August 3, 2018

“It’s undeniable that the Russians are taking the lead on this. Basically, they are the ones that are trying to undermine our basic values, divide us with our allies. They are the ones that are trying to wreak havoc over our election process. We need to call them out on that. It’s critical that we […]


Who is the brother in the boat with George Washington?

July 26, 2018

We’ve all seen the painting. Gen. George Washington strikes a heroic pose, standing in a boat being rowed through an icy river on his way to win the Battle of Trenton during the Revolutionary War. But take a close look at Emanuel Leutze’s iconic painting of Washington crossing the Delaware and you might wonder who […]


Arrogant Supreme Court Justices trample the law in service of the rich

July 13, 2018

We are witnessing an astounding attack on democracy by the five male right-wing majority of the Supreme Court — “black robed rulers,” Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan called them, “overruling citizens’ choices” in a series of 5-4 decisions. These are right-wing lawless judges ignoring the laws and will of our elected representatives and trampling the […]
