Employment is improving, so why aren’t workers dancing?

June 15, 2018

The most recent unemployment rate report seems to contain nothing but good news. The overall unemployment rate is down to 3.8 percent, the lowest that it has been since 2000. The Black unemployment rate, at 5.9 percent, is lower than it has ever been. With the White unemployment rate at 3.5 percent, the ratio between […]

Centuries before Meghan, the ancestry of another Royal wielded far-ranging influence on the world

June 8, 2018

“Descended from the warlike Vandal race, She still preserves that title in her face. Tho’ shone their triumphs o’er Numidia’s plain, And and Alusian fields their name retain; They but subdued the southern world with arms, She conquers still with her triumphant charms, O! born for rule, – to whose victorious brow The greatest monarch […]

Silencing protestors is Un-American

June 1, 2018

When the voices representing us are silenced, what do we do? Many of us love sports and since most teams in almost every sport would be judged just another boring team without Black players, decent voices in sports have been silenced. Colin Kaepernick took a knee to protest police brutality. He was punished for doing […]

Fear can immobilize you

May 24, 2018

Every time we turn on television, we hear “Breaking News” and it’s always something worse than the last news. It’s beginning to make many fearful of what could possibly be next. Even former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson ventured out recently to say, “Without personal honor there is no leadership.” I think that was his […]

Golfing While Black: Five women asked to leave club for golfing too slow

May 19, 2018

On Saturday, April 21, I woke up excited, anticipating a round of golf at Grandview Golf Club in York, Pa. I was going to play with four ladies from “Sisters in the Fairway” (SITF), a group of about 15 professional, predominantly African American women in York County, Pa., who golf. SITF are women of various […]

National Museum for Peace and Justice opens

May 11, 2018

If we don’t know the whereas, the therefore doesn’t make sense. Witness the ovens in Auschwitz and Treblinka, and then you can understand the creation of Israel. Last week, the National Memorial for Peace and Justice opened in Montgomery, Ala., demanding a reckoning with one of this nation’s most repressed atrocities: the lynching of thousands […]

How do you mend a broken heart: The Cosby I know and the man who was convicted

May 4, 2018

I used to love me some Bill Cosby. Not only because he was America’s Big Daddy, but also because he was fun and funny. Most of the time that I was around him, I felt lifted. He had that deep, heh heh heh laugh, and that sweet smile, and then he loved some HBCUs, so […]

50 years after Fair Housing Act, still long way toward ending segregation

April 19, 2018

“The housing problem is particularly acute in the minority ghettos. Nearly two-thirds of all non-White families living in the central cities today live in neighborhoods marked with substandard housing and general urban blight. Two major factors are responsible. First: Many ghetto residents simply cannot pay the rent necessary to support decent housing. In Detroit, for […]

Will the HUD Secretary enforce the Fair Housing Act?

April 13, 2018

The Fair Housing Act was passed a week after Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated. President Lyndon Johnson encouraged Congress to pass the legislation as a tribute to the slain civil rights leader, who, along with several civil rights organizations (including the NAACP), strongly supported the act. African American veterans’ organizations (including the American […]
