True concern for the children of Marcus Smith

February 4, 2021

Being honestly concerned about taking care of Marcus Smith’s children is reasonable but in reality, the Greensboro City Council has no legal say on whether they can legally receive any settlement or judgment proceeds. Smith was a 38 year old African American man who was killed in September 2018 from what the N.C. Medical Examiner […]

There’s a lot left to be done

February 3, 2021

February is Black History Month – and Black people just made a whole lot of history. Joe Biden is our president and Donald Trump is not because Black organizers and voters decided that they would not be denied their right as American citizens to be heard at the ballot box. Kamala Harris is our history-making […]

Consumer advocates push President Biden in his first 100 days

January 28, 2021

As President Joe Biden begins his term of office, the nation and much of the world are waiting and watching to see how his promises become policies and practices that relieve long-term and widespread suffering.

We cannot not lose sight of the historic milestones

January 21, 2021

Martin Luther King Jr. Day feels complicated this year. We have new reasons to celebrate. High on that list is the election of Rev. Raphael Warnock, pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church, where Rev.

Take the COVID-19 vaccine

January 7, 2021

People who don’t know Black history have probably heard more about the Tuskegee syphilis “experiment” in the last month than they have in their whole lives. The chattering class has used the debacle of allowing hundreds of Black men live with untreated syphilis to monitor its effects to explain the resistance that many Black Americans […]

Inadequate COVID-19 relief akin to sending firefighters in to clear up embers

December 31, 2020

“I wish they would put themselves — the White House and Congress and everybody else making these decisions — in the shoes of us, the normal working people, who need help due to no fault of our own. I’m asking to be able to keep my apartment, to be able to live, and not live […]

The concept of enough

December 24, 2020

In Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community?, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. wrote about Dr. Kirtley Mather’s 1944 book Enough and to Spare. Dr. King said Enough and to Spare “set forth the basic theme that famine is wholly unnecessary in the modern world. Today, therefore, the question on the agenda must […]

Biden should revive the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights

December 16, 2020

A new president takes office with the sense of possibility that comes with a new dawn. This is particularly true for Joe Biden, taking office after the divisive turmoil of Donald Trump’s years in office. Biden inherits truly fearsome troubles — among them the spiking pandemic, the collapsing economy, corrosive inequality, catastrophic climate change and […]

It’s way past time to lift every child in our wealthy nation above the scratch line

December 11, 2020

My dear and much beloved preacher teacher friend Dr. Samuel DeWitt Proctor was a great historically Black college president, Peace Corps leader in Africa, and pastor of the historic Abyssinian Baptist Church in Harlem, New York.
