The question

May 7, 2021

QUESTION: “To defund or not to defund?” From my perspective, I see that question as a distraction from the ‘real’ issue which is, “How do we reform ‘policing’ into true public safety?” I concur with those who advocate a realignment of law enforcement budgets to incorporate the employment of mental health and counseling personnel. De-escalation […]

A deal too good to pass up

April 29, 2021

We have an increasingly beneficial deal at our doorstep to close North Carolina’s health insurance coverage gap for hundreds of thousands of North Carolinians – just the kind of fuel our economy and pandemic recovery efforts need. The federal government’s new $1.9 trillion stimulus package makes significant additional funding available for states that close their […]

‘My Daddy’s going to change the world’

April 21, 2021

“My Daddy!” are two words which, arguably, identify the second most important person in the life of a child. Sometimes he is the most important. For many, “Daddy” is the first word spoken and, from all of my discussions on the matter, brings great joy to the person called by that name. From all visuals […]

This is not normal

April 15, 2021

On April 8 President Biden announced a series of executive actions to curb America’s gun violence epidemic that kills a child or teen every 2 hours and 36 minutes in our nation.

For the past year I have been coping with the death of Dr. Charles. H. Long on February 12, 2020.

The right to vote is the foundation of democracy

March 25, 2021

The right to vote is the essential foundation of democracy. Yet today, across America, there is a systematic campaign by one party to curtail the right to vote, targeted particularly at minorities and the young. As the Brennan Center for Justice reports, Republicans have introduced more than 250 legislative bills in 43 states that would […]

They don’t want our ‘Souls at the Polls’ line

March 18, 2021

The Souls to the Polls movement encourages African American church attendees to get out and vote. The churches that promote this movement cannot, because of their 501-c-3 status, endorse candidates. They can, however, emphasize the gospel of social and economic justice and preach the gospel of civic participation. People heard the message and got to […]
