The%2BCosby%2BSaga-Pt1-Racial%2BBias-Jury.png?width=320NB Commentary: Personally, I don't think it's about race. I am sure they will be hard pressed to find a jury that either didn't hear about the allegations or never heard of Bill Cosby. I mean next to Oprah and Barack Obama, what other internationally known Black person have we heard of coming out of Hollywood especially during those days. Not to mention his TV series and commercials. If anything, folks will be more lenient even tolerant or maybe even disbelieving in the allegations due to his no

The%2BCosby%2BSaga-Intro.png?width=320NB Commentary: Bill Cosby is about to be back in the news. After a little over a year or so, the media attention will be focused on him once again. Unless of course they give us something else to focus on. Which is quite likely.

I am going to create a video playlist… and hopefully I won't get too distracted from this project. But I have written several blogs on this topic and I wish to share my thoughts with you on some of the topics that I covered in my blog.
This is a weird adventure for me beca

It's a subject we can never discuss too much about because it is an issue that has grown to be an epidemic among the youth of today. The senseless murder of Atlanta resident Christopher 'Skywalker' Walker this past Monday was befitting of this very topic which circled local news. Chris, at age 19, was found shot in the back of the head in his drive way in

The Man in the Mirror

The church used to be the mirror that society looked into to see its reflection.  But, now the church has become the reflection that mirrors society.

Last month, embattled preacher Eddie Long made an out of court settlement of the sexual charges made against him by 4 teenage parishioners.  The settlement is reported to have been for $ 15 million (t

Raynard Jackson

 

Essence Magazine used to be the preeminent magazine for Black women in the U.S.  They, like many Black publications, have lost their relevance; and in the process become an embarrassment to the very group they claim to target.

 

Essence was founded in 1968 by Ed Lewis, Clarence Smith, Cecil Hollingworth, Jonathan Blount, and Denise Clark.  Their initial circulation began at around 50,000 per month and now is estimated to be over 1 million per month.  It is a monthly pu

Is Visiting Africa A Stretch?

January 13, 2011 

Raynard Jackson

Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. (father of the former Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court with the same name) once stated, “A mind that is stretched to a new idea never returns to its original dimensions.”

I think the sooner African leaders come to understand this, the better off the continent will be.  Everytime I meet with African leaders, they always complain about how Africa is portrayed in the U.S. media.  But yet, they never seem to understand the need to have
