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
More
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
More
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

8/20/2017
More
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?

8/13/2017
More
"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...

At the Feet of the Elders: John Wills on Empowered Black Men

7/23/2017

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. The wisdom must be deep with John Wills, who built the Black Empowered Men Facebook group to over TWENTY THOUSAND members! We talked about the various reasons that went into him creating the group and his thoughts on what it means for Black men to be empowered. Of course, questions about...

How to Make Marriage an Aid to Black Power

7/16/2017
More
Marriage is a tool that can enhance our journey to the Promised Land, if we use it well. It is also a tool that can leave us in a ditch alongside the Way. As Black people, with a spiritual/metaphorical relationship with "the Plantation," we should particularly understand how a strong marriage can keep you on course to Liberty and keep watch over your blindspots so you aren't captured by the hounds. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2hswzpHAQeM This week, Sonya and I are on retreat: to give...

Reparations has the Power to Makes Black Lives Matter

7/9/2017

What if we already have the power we need to put an end to the madness and make Black Lives Matter? I'm talking reparations. It always comes around to this. But usually approaches to reparations consist of demands we don't have the power to enforce. Let's talk about a different way... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uCYWMLH_bDg The reality is that something has got to change, right? Clearly, what we've thought we had accomplished isn't quite accomplished. The system we've used to get this...

And why should a Black boy show concern? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2QqIxQTW7OA Black girl development is the subject of a lot of research, including this Georgetown Law Study.

Crowdfunding is a game changer...but we have to use it effectively. And when used effectively, crowdfunding becomes a critical tool for making Black lives matter in America. It's time to take matters into our own hands and stop waiting. I've identified three steps you can take to begin making Black Lives Matter. You can check it out for free here. Crowdfunding is critical because one of the biggest justifications for racial disparity is access to resources. You've heard that excuse right?...

Black slave turned black cop is not logical - KRS-ONE With police brutality running rampant in Black communities, this song from KRS-ONE has become relevant again. If you haven't heard it, take a listen. KRS-ONE says it's not logical... The logical question is: why would a Black person sign up to be a Black cop? It's a tough question to answer. And as the son of a Black police officer, I have personally had to...

We Will Shoot Back to Make Black Lives Matter

Almost a year ago, Micah Xavier Johnson decided to shoot back. Between war in Afghanistan and the rash of racially motivated violence that leaves us all questioning if Black lives matter in America, Micah Johnson struggled with mental illness. Now, that's no excuse for his actions... But a more important basis for his rage is what James Baldwin alluded to in The Fire Next Time. The title alone should say enough. But Baldwin spoke as a "transcendent Negro" to his nephew - angry in the face of...

Hennessy is Beneath You: Je’Wesley Day Helps Get Your Drink Game Up!

Hennessy is the drink of choice for many in the Black community. Nas, Rakim and several other rappers have endorsed it. Many more rappers have made tracks laced with references to Hennessy...aka da Henny. Personally, I prefer Jack Daniels, but even that will be discussed. On the road to success, many people will tell you many things. One thing you'll likely hear is that you need to improve your golf game. Deals are made on the golf course, they say. And if you can't play - or don't play -...
