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 […]

When will all the lying end?

August 16, 2018

I wake up in the morning listening to the craziness in the White House or one of the agencies in this administration or some weird activity over on Capitol Hill. I only write articles for publication once each week, but I truly feel sorry for press who are charged with analyzing, writing and talking about […]

Congress must act to strengthen election security

August 3, 2018

“It’s undeniable that the Russians are taking the lead on this. Basically, they are the ones that are trying to undermine our basic values, divide us with our allies. They are the ones that are trying to wreak havoc over our election process. We need to call them out on that. It’s critical that we […]

Who is the brother in the boat with George Washington?

July 26, 2018

We’ve all seen the painting. Gen. George Washington strikes a heroic pose, standing in a boat being rowed through an icy river on his way to win the Battle of Trenton during the Revolutionary War. But take a close look at Emanuel Leutze’s iconic painting of Washington crossing the Delaware and you might wonder who […]

Arrogant Supreme Court Justices trample the law in service of the rich

July 13, 2018

We are witnessing an astounding attack on democracy by the five male right-wing majority of the Supreme Court — “black robed rulers,” Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan called them, “overruling citizens’ choices” in a series of 5-4 decisions. These are right-wing lawless judges ignoring the laws and will of our elected representatives and trampling the […]

Families Belong Together

July 5, 2018

Editor’s Note: The following remarks were delivered during a Families Belong Together rally on Saturday, June 30 at LeBauer Park in Greensboro. Raise your hand if you yourself are an immigrant or if you ever had immigrants in your family. This is not just your story. This is our story, the story of America. The […]

Trump: The isolationist

June 29, 2018

Usually, I call him 45. Don’t want to feed the ego of a narcissist by calling out his name. But every shred of ignominy that is associated with this era needs to be associated with this putrid 45th President of the United States. So let’s call it, the Trump era. The era of indifference to […]

Separating children from their parents is cruel and must be stopped!

June 22, 2018

“Little kids are begging and screaming not to be taken from parents, and they’re hauled off. Parents are telling their older kids, ‘Be brave, be brave.’ It’s as bad as anything I’ve seen in 25-plus years of doing this work.” — Lee Gelernt, ACLU immigration attorney Once again Americans are at a crossroads struggling to […]

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 […]
