The East Coast is known as the birth place of Hip Hop. The next rapper up to bat is Javin Copeland a/k/a Chase$tacks, born August 12th with the heart of a lion. Paterson, NJ provided the environment to write the best songs to the soundtrack of Chase$tacks' life. We sat down with Chase$tacks and asked, "When did you realize that this is what you wanted to do?" He replied, "Once everyone started telling me to keep going and don't let nobody stop you! That's when I knew this was for
Often, when we discuss the African freedom struggles during the 1960s and 1970s, the discussion centers around the struggles, achievements, and people who were active in the Civil Rights Movement. During the same time, there were many other movements. One was the Black Power Movement. A number of leaders in that movement remain unsung heroes. In the following articles I will present twelve (12) African Americans Leaders in two parts. The first part will be a summary of their organization. The se
I have been asking and will continue to ask, where are the Black Republicans? Race will be one of the top issues in the 2016 elections and none of our presidential campaigns have any Blacks in the media representing their respective campaigns.
Why in the hell do Republicans continue to have white staffers try to address racial issues within the Black community? Are these campaigns really that stupid?
Black Republicans have absolutely no presence in the media when

Listening to conscious black talk radio programs as I often do, I am struck by the frequency with which callers, and occasionally even the guests, make statements about what “we” need to do about some issue of concern to black people. Invariably, actions they call for would require that “we” be organized as a prerequisite to any potential success; thus my question: How do “we” expect to accomplish anything that requires “us” to become
Ferguson, Missouri - One Year Later
by Charles E. Campbell, Founder & CEO of The Quiet Resolution, TQR, Inc.
A clear example of Black Leadership Failure at every level one year later after the murder of Michael Brown. From The White House of President Obama and his Administration to Black Mayors, Black Preachers and Black Organizations, who have done nothing to address the "Apartheid-like" conditions under which Black African Americans live in America in 2015.

If we are to win Black Power in MertoEast in Saint Louis, Missouri, we must deal with the issue of crime there. I have decided to go for it. I need your feedback and input. I think this is the right approach is for no other reason that it is unavoidable. Every time I deal with Brooklyn or Washington Park, I am confronted with corruption and prostitution. I have concluded that prostitution is at the root of nearly all of our social problems in the African community, out of wedlock childb
Contrary to the refrain from the tragic Ferguson, Mo., shooting of Michael Brown, we know that keeping your hands up does not mean you will not be shot. Assata Shakur had her hands up when she was shot on the New Jersey turnpike by a State Trooper, Oscar Grant was laying face down on a subway platform when he was shot in the back by a Bay Area Transit cop, Sean Bell was executed in a hail of bullets by a half dozen N.Y. city cops while sitting in a car, and Trayvon Martin fought to defend himsel

I have so much to share that I really do not know where to begin. Right or wrong, I will start by saying that “Cheryl” did great by posting “Africans and their obsession with other people's religion”. I do not know “Cheryl” and never heard of her, and I don’t yet know what all she believes. Nevertheless, the information she brought forward is right on
Chicago Tribune say candidate Jimmy Lee Tillman, II "aligns with the GOP as the party that ended slavery and desegregated public schools." and "...would be African-Americans' voice in the majority in the US House"

Democratic Rep. Bobby Rush, who has been in office since 1993, isn't much of a presence in the district or on Capitol Hill. He took a leave of absence to deal with his wife's illness, no doubt a big reason he missed more than a third of votes in 2013. Bu
Dear Ms. Washington:
Black Activists Call 50th Anniversary of Civil Rights Act Enactment "Bittersweet" Occasion, Since Many Fail to Recognize the Progress That Has Been Made.
"The Civil Rights Act changed American culture... racist sentiment became largely outdated and unacceptable ...black people... are now the masters of their own destiny."
"Today, black Americans and other minorities no longer face the daunting obstacles that existed prior to 50 years ago. The public square and corridors of commerce are overwhelm
Eliminating animal use from your life can seem quite straightforward at times, while at others it may seem challenging. For instance, opting out of animal use in entertainment is as simple as not supporting activities that use animals (zoos, circuses, rodeos, etc.). However, once you start looking at food and clothing labels, it can be surprising how many of them use some sort of animal product.
Contemplating the Transition to Vegan
When it comes to clothing, new vegans may find it challenging to
SO, “12 DAYS A SLAVE” WON AN ACADEMY AWARD! NOW, LET JUSTICE BE SERVED, AND LET ALL THE CULPRITS RESPONSIBLE BE NAMED IN THIS BARBARIC HOLOCAUST, ESPECIALLY “THE MOTHER OF ALL SLAVERS”! FEW PEOPLE KNOW THAT THE BIBLICAL ISRAELITES WERE BLACK, AND THAT THIS IS THE REASON THE USURPERS OF GOD’S LAND AND IMPOSTERS OF OUR IDENTITY HATE BLACK PEOPLES SO MUCH! MOREOVER, IT IS MAINLY THESE USURPERS WHO HAVE PREVENTED PAYMENT OF REPARATIONS TO DESCENDANTS OF SLAVES
From the 2013 Native American Music Awards, Mwalim DaPhunkee Professor, a soul- funk- jazz musical artist and member of the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe took home two Top Nominee medals and an offer from Donald Blackfox to join the Spirit Wind Records family of traditional and contemporary Native American recording artists.
Mwalim, a veteran songwriter, producer, session and touring musician has been recording and releasing albums on his own LMMGM label since 1990, interrupted by a stint at a major la

Last week a piece circulated the internet written by a young woman about the three months she spent in India. She'd travelled there as part of the University of Chicago Indian Civilizations Program. That in itself isn't the part that made the story viral – it was her description of the sexual harassment and physical abuse she suffered at the hands of Indian men that got everyone's attention.
The young lady in question recounted frightening tales of having her breasts and crotch clawed at by total
Why Black African Americas Should Care About Fracking?
C. Earl Campbell DA 3rd, MSW
The answer is clear. We too value clean air and water. Black African Americans have all too often been the victims of environmental racism caused by Corporate greed. Hydraulic fracturing is a process used in nine out of 10 natural gas wells in the United States, where millions of gallons of water, sand and toxic chemicals (poisons) are pumped underground to break apart Shale Rock in order to release the gas trap
