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. If anyone had told me before this hearing that Professor Jonathan Turley would have taken the positions he took, […]

World War II Rosies

December 5, 2019

All of my life I had seen a White woman, fist up, a red bandana around her head, determination on her face and words above her saying “We Can Do It!” I never thought much about it until I attended a program this past summer where there were no Black women or any women other […]

The rent is too damn high – and the presidential candidates aren’t saying enough about it

November 27, 2019

“Across the nation, families are struggling with homelessness and housing insecurity. We need to treat the affordable housing shortage like the crisis that it is. Housing is a fundamental human right. It’s time we as a nation acted like it and end the housing crisis once and for all.” – U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, introducing […]

Housing discrimination complaints have reached a 24-year high

November 22, 2019

As a candidate, President Donald Trump promised if elected that deregulation of the federal government would be an administration priority.

The Homelessness Crisis – We are Better Than This

November 8, 2019

I was returning from an errand when the skies opened up. The punishing rain came down with such vigor that despite an umbrella, the bottom inches of my pants were soaked. With my wash and wear hair, and just half a block more to walk, I shrugged the rain off, until I saw a woman […]

This race is ours to lose

November 1, 2019

When Sputnik circled the earth in 1957, Americans were agog that the Russians had beaten us into space. In Black barbershops, segregated classrooms of the South and other spaces where Black folk could speak openly, it was undisputed that America’s inability to focus on the “space race” was because of its obsession with the “race […]

To his wealthy donors, Trump is their grifter

October 18, 2019

To decipher President Donald Trump’s presidency, apply the basic rule of politics: Follow the money. Last month, for example, Trump performed at rallies in North Carolina and in New Mexico. He entertained adoring crowds, clad in Trump’s MAGA caps and t-shirts. The rallies got featured on Fox and other news stations. Then Trump flew to […]

Research finds homelessness is a national crisis

October 3, 2019

For more than a decade, economists, lawmakers, and others have heralded the nation’s economy. Often citing how unemployment has declined as new jobs have been created, or Wall Street trading and major bank profits rising, some might be led to believe that all is well in America. But as Sportin’ Life in the folk opera […]
