The Quick Scan by Mike Ramey



      Time again for a few thoughts from my ‘All American Trick Bag’; dedicated to bringing forth some historical items of note from the P-School Ranger era—that era of history BEFORE ‘Old School’.  You might want to bring along your smelling salts, as these were items that happened outside of your classroom.

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

A Bad Joint

August 4, 2011


Raynard Jackson


The Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies used to be one of the preeminent think tanks in Washington, DC.  They focus on issues of particular concern to the Black community.


Over the years I have participated in or hosted panels with them that were very substantive and informative.  They were a think tank in its truest form---there to provide unbiased analysis, not to promote and agenda!

Then again, given the paucity of talent in that once venerabl
