White Supremacy will only end at the hands of Black Power

5/15/2018
More
When it all comes down to it, the end came is dismantling White supremacy... There is no justice in this world... There is no Beloved Community, so long as White supremacy has breadth. Right? But how do we put White supremacy to an end? Can we just wait on White folk to end it? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mggph8o_RNM&feature=youtu.be In this last episode for the Spring 2018 season, we'll explore why Black Power is the only thing that will ultimately dismantle White supremacy. If White...

Black Redemption: The Foundation of True Racial Reconciliation

5/1/2018
More
All the talk about racial reconciliation ignores the role of Black redemption. And, without Black redemption there is no way to achieve racial reconciliation that is anything more than further conditioning Black people to become reconciled to their own oppression. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=85e0LZH4_4g I'm sold that racial reconciliation can only happen as a result of Black redemption. That's why, when people ask me what I speak/present on I say: "Black redemption and racial...

Wakanda & Ethiopia: The Myth and the Hope of Black Power

4/17/2018
More
Wakanda forever was the cry... But forever is such a very long time. And our attention spans are so short. Yet, there's such hope in Wakanda-mania. It shows us the great potential of when a myth becomes reality... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wRfXhazPdS8 I enjoyed Black Panther... And by box office numbers, it seems most of us did... Beyond the movie, what was very powerful was the countless Black folk proclaiming "Wakanda Forever!" Especially coming from the Black elite... I mean, you...

Black Christianity is the Authentic Christian Witness of America

4/3/2018
More
Black Christianity is different from White Christianity... Shouldn't be...but it is. It's the reality created by the sin of White supremacy. But more than simple conjecture...beyond simply throwing out some charged statement, what is the basis of this claim? What makes this claim undeniable? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RB8nad-vSJ0 "Slaves be obedient to your masters..." That's the legacy many of us think belongs to Black Christianity. And when - even in 2018 - I see Black Christians...

Ancient Egypt & Lessons on Black Identity in America

3/20/2018
More
Ancient Egypt, the Sphinx, the Pyramids... They are incredibly fascinating and draw us back to the greatest civilization. All "great civilizations" of the West have modeled themselves after Egypt. Ancient Egypt serves as the foundation for the idea of greatness. And it's greatest lesson for Black Identity might also be the most disturbing... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f9JelHgDWgA But what else do we learn from Ancient Egypt? What do we learn about ourselves as Black people in America...

Black Power Mission: Dismantling White Supremacy

3/6/2018
More
In publishing my book, Black Power: Our God-Given Call to Make America Great, I ended up taking a hiatus from producing this podcast. And that hiatus has helped reframe the show in transformative ways! And in this episode, I share how those changes will be transformative for you! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oA2tC8AvyWo We've got to be more intentional about everything, if we're going to be prepared for the political and economic struggles facing Black people in America and beyond. And...

Afro-Latinos: The Forgotten Hispanics…the Forgotten Blacks

1/16/2018
More
Afro-Latinos...how many times do you consider the in the equation of #BlackLivesMatter? When Hispanic groups ask for Black American assistance in their fight for equality, do you take stock of the issues from the perspective of Afro-Latinos? It's a conversation we definitely need to have... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ow2KkHQ0Gw When I worked on Capitol Hill, I focused heavily on the issues affecting Afro-Latinos. So, I'm familiar with the issues. And it's always been baffling that...

Public Health, Policy & Black Empowerment with Okey Enyia

12/4/2017
More
Public Health concerns are a critical piece to understanding the complexities of the Black experience. It's part of the issue that keeps us from creating a cohesive socio-economic political agenda to advance the Black community. Consider it like this: who can think straight when they are sick? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6v0SSqC2XmA And like Malcolm said, Black people in America are "sickest of all politically." That sounds hyperbolic...sounds like exaggeration. But, look at our social...

Fear of a Black Identity

11/19/2017
More
Black identity has always been threatening to American Society. It's long been debated and suppressed. Black folk ourselves are the worst purveyors of this fear of a Black identity, because at several checkpoints in our American sojourn we have - en masse - encouraged each other to deny our Blackness in favor of the "American melting pot." And this fear is the subject of a recent FBI report that should have us concerned. (Article continues below) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9zJi2pTVuLo...

Doitall to Change the Political Landscape

10/29/2017
More
Some Doitall to be the Chief Rocka, and that's certainly cool. But once you've established your position as one of the illest to rock a mic, what's next? Once you prove you can move the crowd to uncontrollably nod their heads and shake their bodies, what's the next challenge for a true Emcee? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dneyrzknTrw Back before hiphop had the club going up on a Tuesday to pop bottles and skeet all over the walls, the art form was known as the Black CNN - informing the...

Pledging vs. Hazing: The Thin Line between Construction & Destruction

10/8/2017
More
Pledging is the answer for everyone, when that is the choice. No one wants hazing, right? But surely skating isn't the answer either. Both skating and hazing have produced lackluster brothers and sisters incapable of living up to the high moral standards of our various Fraternities and Sororities. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rXSbvMemylA In these days of racial turmoil, we need strong leadership that has been prepared for the battles we must face in the fight for freedom and justice....

Black Star Relief & Development: Up Ye Mighty Race!

9/17/2017
More
The Black Star line needs to be reborn. Many of you won’t know what that is…and that’s cool: that’s why you have me! LOL In the 1920’s, the Honorable Marcus Mosiah Garvey had amassed a global membership of more than 12 million members in the Universal Negro Improvement Association and African Communities League. It scared a lot of people…a lot of White Supremacists and Lamb Chop’s Play Along Negroes who had a vested interest in protecting massa’s house....

Redemption Song: The DUPLicate authentICTY of a Hiphop Junkie

9/10/2017

Redemption: thanks be to God, it's a possibility. I mean, if we're stuck being the people we once were...if we're stuck with the reputations we foolishly established, who of us could be good? Right? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tt-ZCgK8X9M But, the reality of redemption isn't license for foolishness. Redemption isn't some sort of magic potion, given to those who learn to say "Jesus." It's a journey that we must walk. Like a new instrument - or maybe a set of turntables (or whatever folk...

Confederate Monuments & Letting White Supremacy off the hook

9/3/2017
More
Confederate monuments have become a major topic of discussion lately. Some people want to see them come down. Others want to see them stay up. What is the best way forward? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bIVZozGGRM8 I've always thought the Confederacy was treasonous. I've always found it strange that somehow Americans were able to justify treason and graft it in as a celebrated part of history. And I've always thought that Confederate monuments were in fact monuments to treason....

Colin Kaepernick: How Do We Really Support Him?

8/27/2017

Colin Kaepernick is effectively banned from the NFL - not for criminal activity...not for domestic violence...not even for dog fighting or performance enhancement drugs. Kaepernick is banned for having a conscience and resolving to be more than a dumb jock. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gW_iktgFyaM I know there are people trying to force the NFL to lift the silent ban on Kaepernick. I agree with what Shaun King is saying in this article. But I don't feel like begging the NFL to give him...

Training Them to Be Great: Teaching Youth to Find & Follow their Dreams

Training effectively is the key to being on the top of your game. And, with the racist White Supremacist terror of the past week, I think it's become clear that we have to change course...we have to play the game differently and better...become more self-reliant. When only 51% of the Country believes President Trump's response to White Supremacy was weak, we have to consider how safe we are - as Black people - with the other 49% of America. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=36t0Ol7_B0w In...

What’s “the Real” Power of Social Media?

"The Real" is a daytime talkshow similar to the View, but features a cast that is all women of color. Shows like this are powerful in shaping popular culture and the discussions that we have in Society. Even if you don't watch them, you should know that TV talkshows are deconstructing Society and shaping the future of culture. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w_1J0eLOI3o "How," you might ask? Well, take this excerpt from Penn State's archives: As we watch, listen, and are entertained, TV...

Why We Need Black Republican Commentators

8/6/2017
More
Ain't no reason or explanation for a Black Republican... That's what many of "us" would say. And as a result, Black Republicans spend their time defending themselves for being Republican rather than sharing how they see themselves sharing in the progress of our people. So, I wanted to give Kimberly Klacik her opportunity to freely share her perspective so you can get to know her. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y900TIud1xA Now, typically when we see a Black Republican s/he is selling out...

Our elders pave the way...it's because of them that we are where we are...even if we aren't there yet! LOL There's wisdom with the elders and we should take care to hear from them and learn from them.
