The Media gave us Bill Cosby, a relatively unknown comedian who reached meteoric stardom. They made Bill Cosby and gave him certain privileges that they would not give to any other Black man during the 60's & 70's and like Fred Sanford would tell us, if the white man is doing it than it must be right. Remember how he wouldn't go to a black dentist? Well, during that time we too were struggling if we could trust a Black professional "anything" over a white one. Once Cosby was sanctioned by "white
'TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE ELECTION 2012
(based loosely on the rhythm & rhyme of Twas The Night Before Christmas by Clement Moore)
(c) NOVEMBER 5, 2012
Twas the night bfore the Election And in every house
The people were shouting Keep Obama in the White House!!
He helped us when the economy tanked and we were in despair
The Bushes were laughing and didn't give a care
Wall Street was pampered while Main Street was dead

Just received this piece from one of my Lincoln U Classmates, and thought it would be an interesting read and share piece. It was originally written by Mr. Andrew M. Manis in 2008; but has been re-circulated by the author as a wake up call to his fellow Caucasians.
Read, share, respond.
Stay Blessed &

It's 3:00 AM, and I'm going through my emails – something, being a night owl, I do routinely, in preparation for writing, or researching for my blog or a news article – when I see Bill Cosby's name in the subject line of an email. So, of course I zoom in on it because, anything about Cosby I'm going to read. He's one of my heroes.
What I read made me sad, then disappointed, and finally angry. It was an online response to an article that has been circulating the intern

This venerable event has been around now longer than most of Brooklyn's residents- celebrating 54 years and counting. It's full of wonderful, creative work from time honored and new artists – local and national. Interestingly enough, with June also being Black Music Month and Caribbean Heritage Month, there is a cross section of cultures converging on this tiny, yet highly signficant little part in Bed-Stuy – on Fulton between Lewis and Marcus Garvey Boulevards.
Regardless of what the cynics say, there is always something new under the sun, and that was definitely the case at the recently held Blogworld and New Media Expo at Jacob Javits Center.
Being a newly minted blogger – just entering my 3rd year in the realm of bloggerdom, but a veteran journalist, I was interested in finding out what was going on in the rest of the blog world. Needless to say, I was totally overwhelmed at how much there is to learn and do as a “blogg

Mayor Ernie Davis' swearing in as Mount Vernon's 21st mayor, and, as the first New York mayor to go back and successfully win his old seat (at least in Mt. Vernon's history), is a sign that this year is going to be absolutely fantastic - that is, if we do what we're supposed to do, individually and collective

I hope I have sufficiently shocked you to attention, because there is a disaster brewing right under our noses, right in the Black family community, that has been flying low under the radar.
As a matter of fact, I and others would probably not have become aware of it had it not been announced at Rev. Jesse Jackson's Rainbow Push 15th Anniversary Wall Street Initiative, during a panel discussion on the disappearing Black media.
Talk about a shock! When James L. Winston, Execut

Former presidential candidate, Herman Cain, proved that despite a load of God given talent, he was unable to be a serious contender for the highest office in the land.
In the immortal words of former British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, “to every man there comes a time when he is figuratively tapped on the shoulder and offered the chance to do a great and mighty work; unique to him and fitted to his talents; what a tragedy if that moment finds him unprepared

Rick Welts, “I’m gay.” Don Lemon, “I’m gay.” Will Sheridan, “I’m gay.” Uhhhhhhhhhh, ENOUGH!
Who cares? Does the public really care about their sex lives? Who these people choose to be romantic with is of no concern to me and should be of no concern to those who know them.
Rick Welts is the president of the Phoenix Suns professional basketball team. He is very well respected and is considered one of the best executives in all of professional sports. Don Lemon i

You didn't know me when you were here,
But through your words I feel you are near.
I was too young for the demonstration,
But I learned about you in my education.
You said we all were created equal,
But maybe now we need a new sequel.
Because I don't know what happened to the dream,
Nor the members of your team.
Yeah, Andy's made a name,
Jesse got some fame.
But what happened to the vision?
Seems it's been lost to indecisio
Today, veteran Black poltical activists Wallace "Gator" Bradley and Mark Allen accuse Illinois Senator Bill Brady of being non responsive to their overtues on behalf of few hundred Black community activists who said they would help expose Senator Brady and his campaign to Black voters who were upset and withdrawn their support of Governor Quinn and heard Brady on Black talk radio station WVON-AM that he wanted to reach out to Black voters in trying to earn their support.
