      Let me warn you up front.  You might want to get your smelling salts out, as we are going to take the ‘long way’ around the mountain on a very sensitive topic.  Please make sure that your trays are in an upright position and keep your torches and pitchforks among your carry-ons as we take off into the wild blue.

The Ramey Commentaries (TM) By Mike Ramey

     I was catching up with a good friend of mine, when the conversation turned to the current social scene.  He brought up something very profound—but also troubling—on the issue of homosexuality.  “Do you realize,” he noted, “how quickly society has gone from ‘God made me this way’ to ‘it’s MY choice’, in a matter of a few years?”

     That was a ‘thought nugget’ that came over the plate like a fastball.

     One of the sure signs of the end times—just before the rapture of the church—is the fac

“You Americans are so gullible.  No, you won’t accept communism outright, but we’ll keep feeding you small doses of socialism until you will finally wake up and find that you already have communism”

“Socialism: The Real History From Plato To The Present”

Red and Dotie Auerbach share a laugh with Inside Sports host Harold Bell and telephone guest, tennis legend Jimmy Connors.

NBA legend Red Auerbach and abolitionist John Brown had more in common than the color of their skin. These two white men stood up for black folks when they could not stand up for themselves.

John Brown for example, is famous for leading a small group on a raid against a federal armory in Harper’s Ferry, Virginia (now West Virginia), in an attempt to start an armed slave revolt

Read about another outrageous and heinous "Black Wall Street" act against us that has been hidden until now.  It, too, is just as evil as was the first racist means to remove Blacks from power, authority, and self-determination.  This information makes President Trump's H.R. 1242 African-American History Commission Act more of a joke than ever.

Every time a Black man or woman is brutally gunned down by cops, the police are commended on their service to the public.  Nothing was any different with the two Black men murdered by cops in Baton Rouge and in Minnesota.  Without any investigation, police officers received accolades and nothing was said of the grieving family members. 

Constantly we hear about good cops, but are they still good cops if they turn a blind eye to the evils of racist cops?  How can we not forget the cop who took a s

Financial Revolution???

Democratic Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders is calling for a political revolution. Part of his proposed revolution is breaking up the big financial institutions on Wall Street.  His call has touched the hearts and minds of many progressive Democrats between the ages of 18 – 35. Let’s delve a little deeper into this proposal.

            First of all, we understand (somewhat) how this change would affect Wall Street, but what about us on Main Street?  Not much.  We who live on Main Street are

The Blacks Also Do Racism

Akinwale-Emmanuel-Giwa_2074097.jpg?width=350By Akinwale Emmanuel Giwa | Indeed, when you hear the word Racism, the first thing that comes to your mind is the superiority and dominance of the White race over the Black race. But the simple truth is that, Black people also do Racism. They also have a sense of superiority and dominance over other races,especially the Whites. A continent where the practice of black superiority exist, is Africa, the ancestral home of all black people, whether directly or indirectly. Hence, this article shall lo

Once again the United States Supreme Court raises its racist head making clear its convictions and principles for White supremacy and White superiority over Blacks.  We even have a Justice Thomas and his ilk in place to prove it.  This decision on Affirmative Action to uphold  a ban on Affirmative Action for any reason rings true that Blacks have no voice in this so-called system of justice and much less representation in the White H

Driving While BlackI firmly believe that America is the greatest country on the earth and it is truly a land of opportunity for all.  The American dream is alive and well and many people of all races have had tremendous success.  With these positives in place, it is no wonder why there have been so many incredible achievements by African Americans in the 21st century to include the obvious - the first black president.

It is also true howe

Many hands on the worldOne of the best aspects of the Internet is that there are so many authors speaking about so many varied and diverse topics.  As I read politically or racially charged pieces I often see this quote from a commenter: "I don't see race".   The writer usually says this like this is some badge of honor. "I don't see race so therefore I can't  discriminate".  Most people who write this are full of shit. 

For those who truly "don't see race" however I say that they are missing out on the very thing that

That Hated-On Man:  In Honour of Henry Rodrigues and Other Black But Not Black Men


La Vonda R. Staples


            I think the majority of Black men whom I speak with on a daily basis are not African American men.  I regularly interface, via phone and internet, with Nigerian, Ghanaian, Haitian, and Puerto Rican dark-skinned, thick lipped, and very well educated brothers.  This is in addition to the people I speak with on an ongoing basis over writing projects a

US Prison Labor is Very profitable


From the Ramparts                                               


Junious Ricardo Stanton                                          

    “The racism that pervades every aspect of life in capitalist society — from jobs, income and housing to education and opportunity — is most brutally reflected by who is caught up in the U.S. prison system. More than 60 percent of U.S. prisoners are people of color. Seventy percent of those being sentenced under the three strikes law in California — which requires

In The Mis-Education of the Negro by Carter Godwin Woodson, it states, "If you can control a man's thinking, you don't have to worry about his actions. If you can determine what a man thinks, you do not have to worry about what he will do. If you can make a man believe that he is inferior, you don't have to compel him to seek an inferior status, he will do so without being told and if you can make a man believe that he is justly an outcast, you don't have to order him to the back door, he will g

Paul Scott:

A broken, elderly black man limped into his doctor's office last Tuesday afternoon. His neck bore the scars of numerous lynching attempts and his back the whelps of years of severe beatings. Reflected in his eyes was the pain of seeing his mother and sister raped and being powerless to do anything about it. As he described in vivid detail his many thoughts of committing suicide, the physician just sat emotionless in her chair. Finally, she scribbled on her prescription pad, "take two

With the history of racism and discrimination in the U.S., black people have become very observant. These skills have become very honed and polished over the years due to inequalities in all aspects of life. This is a trait that has led to many a court case being brought to flush out racism, to the benefit of generations to come. Some people have tried to underestimate these observational skills by marginalizing them. This has spawned the phrase"playing the race card".
When black people point out
