TO REBUILD A PEOPLE
Every few years, it seems, a group of Blacks get together to come up with ‘The Black Agenda’. The cameras flash and speeches are made…but nothing seems to get done. Recently, I happened to sit in upon such a gathering, and was sorely disappointed with the discussions. You see, those of us who have a touch of gray in our hairlines, and have lived through the turbulent sixties know full well that we, as a people, successfully fought for--and won--many rights that were due u

A true story to lead off in our batting cage warm-up session.
A young man, out for his first political office, won the primary and defeated his challenger from within his party by a two-to-one margin. He was looking forward to taking a few weeks off and resting up for the campaign trail to the general election in November. Life--and his party--had other plans. The incumbent of his party that held the seat he was campaigning for suddenly resigned, and vacated the seat. Remember how I menti
“When we’re faced with someone else’s success, it makes us think about why we can’t do it instead of how the other person did do it.”
--Author Chris Hogan “Everyday Millionaires”
There have been three great books on the subject of wealth that I have been blessed to read over the years. The first one: “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill. The second: “Think and Grow Rich: A Black Choice” by Dennis Kimbro, Ph.D. The third one is the newcomer “Everyday Millionaires” by Chris Hogan (2019, 250 pages,
One of the places where local party officials get access to a wealth of untapped volunteers comes--ironically--from your local school house. Students who take high school courses in Social Studies, U. S. History, Civics or American History are given the opportunity to earn extra credit by ‘working the polls’ during the primary and general elections.
Don’t be fooled. The ‘dirty little secret (DLS)’ is, while the ‘mainstream mess (MSM)’ cries about the ‘low scores of students’ IN public e
Those who gripe about politics don’t necessarily want to see problems solved.
They just want to talk about the problems and hope the problems will resolve themselves, with the least amount of damage to themselves and their families.
Those of us who are Men of color have just as much right as to run for elective office as the next person. The problem is that there are few in the way of resources available to encourage men TO get involved in politics; to build and coach men in the way
One of my favorite ‘toons from a bygone era featured ‘Droopy’ the dog. This canine would be in impossible situations, and through sheer determination would defeat his adversaries with comical dispatch. In one of these MGM classics, Droopy was in a series of Olympic-type competitions. Droopy won every event. However, his opponent had tricked Droopy into signing a confession that our hero cheated in every event. Well, of course, the judges threw out Droopy’s victorie
Anthony Agbo uses Bible to explore Africa’s history.
Author claims God cursed Africa, aims to prove theory in ‘Africa: The Glory, the Curse, the Remedy.
As a career politician and Christian, author Anthony Agbo – a senator in Southeastern Nigeria – often reflected on why Africa and Africans are so widely different from the rest of the world. This difference, he says, is a negative one.
According to a 2012 Gallup International survey about religiosity and atheism, Ghana is one of the most religious countries in the world. At first glance, there is some evidence for this: when you land in Accra, you’ll notice churches everywhere you go. If you look even closer, you’ll see Mormon missionaries on their bikes throughout the country.
For most people in the world, to be photographed carrying a bible is harmless and cannot be elevated to a noticeable event. No so in Al-Bashir’s Sudan. This is the story of Hawa Abdalla, an ordinary Darfuri woman activist, working in the IDP camp of Abushouk, Darfur, where she is employed as a civilian member of UNAMID peace-keeping authority. In May 8th, 11, the infamous government Sudan Media Centre (SMC), otherwise known as Sudan’s intelligence mouth, published
Am I the only one in the U.S. who is amazed by the media coverage of the person in Florida who wants to have a Koran burning party on Saturday, September 11th? Unlike the media, I refuse to name him because I will not contribute to his getting 15 more minutes of fame!
Even conservative media and talk show entertainers like Laura Ingraham have contributed to this circus. They have been very critical of the media coverage. So, what do they do? They have guests on the
