The All Progressives Congress has released the names of judges in the Rivers Judiciary apparently being used to issue 'black market' injunctions against it by desperate politicians in the State.

 

They are Justice Opufa Ben-Whyte, Justice Okogbule Gbasam, Justice Chiwendu Wogu and Justice Fiberesima.

 

The APC in a statement signed and issued by its spokesman, Chief Ogbonna Nwuke, in Port Harcourt said that the actions of these judges have largely contributed to the wrong impression across the count

The underrepresentation of African Americans in tech has long been an issue and even today, many tech companies still struggle to address the lack of diversity in their hiring practices. This trend can be traced back as far as the 1970s when California's Bay Area became referred to and known as "Silicon Valley". Tech companies like Hewlett Packard, Xerox, followed by Facebook, Apple, and Google found a home in Northern Cali, yet few knowledgeable, capable Black IT, programmers, coders, and tech

Advocacy in black race has not really gotten the best of concern, accolades and support. Basically, it is because, maybe, the understanding about it is low or because to most humans in that race, any and everything should be and addressed with the same gloves used in contemporary politics. In other climes, advocacy groups pose as hope lines for the people and society. Advocacy groups speak for the people, put the government in check, make the government accountable t

Some businesses are 100% Black-owned and operated, like this platform. These brands outright identify as having Black founders and CEOs. Brands I love like Capital City Mambo Sauce, Uncle Ray's Products, and clothes from Black Vibe Tribe or hair care products from Black Naps (Natural and Proud Sistas).

 

Then some brands are majority-owned. Consider Tristan Walker who sold his multimillion-dollar men's grooming brand Bevel to Procter & Gamble in 2018 yet still remains the company's CEO. Rockstar

White racists hate black people and the knee-jerk reaction is to hate them back. This is the typical reaction  that our culture produces. Wait a minute. We are in a very desperate situation and as such knee-jerk reactions should give way to carefully thought-out  strategy.

The sad fact is that these racists are nothing but pawns of the notorious 1% that dominate American politics. One percent is a very small number, so how can such a small number dominate American politics? Of course, they have b

American Holocaust

 

One of the main defenses Germans made in their defense of allowing the atrocities committed by Hitler against the Jews is ignorance. “We did not know…..”. Well right now America is committing atrocities worldwide and most Americans know but do not seem to care.

War crimes are being committed without war. It is a war crime for a country to deliberately kill hundreds or thousands of innocent civilians to overcome the enemy.  America is killing thousands of innocent men, women and children all over

The Killing Culture is Killing Us

 

Crime is on a rampage in cities all over America. Every day we are confronted in the newspapers with more and more  cruel killings. It’s a disaster. Solutions are not working. They are not working because these killings are because of the accepted killing culture that we have established in which killing is fun.

When my grandson was only seven, he was killing over 20 villains per day in video games. I remember as a kid, we played marbles, checkers and scrabble. Now, instead kids are addicted to
