Why everyone should vote “no” on all six amendments

October 19, 2018

You know, you have to give the Republican majority, and particularly the GOP legislative leadership in the N.C. General Assembly, credit. They pretty much know that the good people of North Carolina have had enough of their legislative double-dealing, and sinister attempts at voter oppression aimed at African Americans, so they’ve come up with a […]

Constitutional right to counsel is meaningless under dismal current public defender system

October 12, 2018

“Reason and reflection require us to recognize that in our adversary system of criminal justice, any person hauled into court, who is too poor to hire a lawyer, cannot be assured a fair trial unless counsel is provided for him. This seems to us to be an obvious truth … From the very beginning, our […]

To Be Equal

October 5, 2018

Enough Is Enough. Vote! Our rights are too hard-won to take for granted “Our first project was to become familiar with the voter registration process and all the impediments that kept down the number of Negro voters. These impediments were quite formidable and sometimes unpredictable. The stated registration process required passing a literacy test and […]

The Criminalization of Poverty

September 28, 2018

Cash Bail for Non-Violent Misdemeanors Perpetuates Unequal Treatment Under the Law “The rich man and the poor man do not receive equal justice in our courts. And in no area is this more evident than in the matter of bail … The man who must wait in jail before trial often will lose his job […]

Diversity Reimagined

September 24, 2018

Creating a Culture of Possibilities by Relating to Others as Partners, Fellow Learners and Builders There’s no doubt. ‘Diversity’ has gotten a bad rap. It has become increasingly equated with a kind of moralism or political correctness that is not helpful. The word tends to get people all wound up, bent out of shape, and […]

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 […]
