Laughingstock

November 23, 2016

Once again North Carolina is the laughingstock of the nation, this time thanks to Gov. Pat McCrory’s inability to fathom two very simple words – YOU LOST! Call it ego, call it shame, or call it whatever you want … Patrick Lloyd McCrory, outgoing one-term Republican governor (if nothing else shifty gets in the way) […]


The World is Not Enough

November 17, 2016

If you and yours are still reeling from last week’s shocking presidential election results, trust me, you’re not alone. A night hasn’t gone by since Donald Trump was declared the next president of the United States when thousands of people have taken to the streets of various American cities, expressing their profound disgust and discontent […]


Your Vote Matters

November 4, 2016

If you are experiencing high anxiety due to this year’s U.S. Presidential election, you are not alone. This tumultuous election cycle presents voters with two very different choices. One choice is Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, a woman who has spent her career working to make the lives of children and families better and whose campaign […]


Voter fraud and voter suppression

October 28, 2016

I watched the October 19 Presidential debate in both awe and horror. Awe – I truly do not understand Republican nominee Donald Trump’s temerity to lie, interrupt, sniff, sigh, and interject offensive comments (“such a nasty woman”) in lieu of disagreement. The horror came when Trump asserted that he would not necessarily accept the result […]


VOTE, VOTE, VOTE, early voting starts today

October 21, 2016

Early voting starts today, October 20. Get out there now and start voting. Every election we hear this is the most important election ever, and every election it is true, especially for people of color. If we don’t exercise our right to vote each and every time we have the opportunity we are saying it’s […]


The North Carolina Gubernatorial debate

October 14, 2016

Did you watch the candidates for governor debate? Republican incumbent governor Pat McCrory and Democratic challenger Attorney General Roy Cooper went at it pretty hard, right from the start and they made no bones about where they stand on the issues. House Bill 2, the controversial bill that requires transgender people to use the bathroom […]


Honoring Sojourner Truth: Courageous warrior for justice

October 7, 2016

It is important to recognize and honor those who have strived to fulfill the promise laid out in our Constitution to form a more perfect union. Those who fought in a different way for the ideals we cherish as a nation: justice, equality and freedom.– U.S. Navy Secretary Ray Mabus I was recently deeply honored […]


Cash in the Apple: The Debate

September 30, 2016

Yep, I was among the tens of millions of viewers (a record 80.9 million to be exact) who gave up Monday night to watch the presidential “Rumble in the Jungle” between Republican Donald J. Trump, and Democrat Hillary R. Clinton. I must admit, it was well worth the wait, and the watch. Despite all of […]


Cone Health’s declaration of accountability corrects sins of the past

September 23, 2016

On Thursday, September 15, 2016 Cone Health Board of Trustees celebrated the groundbreaking efforts of local African American physicians and dentists who sought to integrate the medical facilities at Cone Hospital in the 1960s. Numbering among the medical professionals, who sued the segregated hospital for access, was my father, Milton H. Barnes, a Greensboro dentist. […]


Republican Party rejects Black voters

September 19, 2016

Are Black voters so loyal to Democrats that their issues are ignored? Donald Trump suggests as much, arguing that Blacks have “nothing to lose” by voting for him. Now a column by Farai Chideya at FiveThirtyEight cites academics who make a similar argument. In recent elections, about 90 percent of the Black vote has gone […]
