A New Year. What will be different?

Watching the news and the outrage over the comments by the president, is  disheartening but not surprising.    He continues to be the person that ran for president and I suspect he will continue to be that person throughout the remainder of his life.  The question I continue to ask is what is the fix or is there one.  Are

We’re better together

In reviewing the statistics it appears that African Americans are committing a majority of the crimes, and are a failure.   That is the narrative that permeates through every crack and crevice of this country.   The statistics are accurate, however there is more to the story.  People of color are disprortionately targeted, and in many cases lack the financial

Will racism ever die

A foundation is something we build upon and it is woven through so many areas of a culture.  We continue to fight against racism and bias, but it is very deeply engrained into the foundation of this country.  The Native American’s were called savages for fighting for their home.  The move Avatar depicted the situation so well, in clearly depicting

Loving the skin you’re in

I had a conversation the other day with a brother. We talked about a few things and begin talking about working out and swimming.  I told him I do not love swimming, but understand it is supposed to provide a full body workout.  He then begin to compare black and whites.  Why do whites swim much more than black.  I

Smoke and mirrors

The flag is a symbol supporting the words written in the constitution, which states all men are created equal.  Those that do not treat and see people as equals are dishonoring the flag.  However, their actions go unchecked and unchanged. There is so much focus on standing, sitting, and kneeling, that the spotlight is no longer on the issues of

I had a conversation with a group of colleagues and we discussed what is taking place in our world today. No different than many of you are having, of course. We were discussing how to make life better for people of color. We cannot ignore the many strides that have taken place in the  African American Community, and there is

Let’s fight for our lives

There are so many things happening in our community.  If feels there is a conspiracy  to destroy the black man.  Each time I turn on the TV I am seeing our young men murdered or thrown in prison.  If you look at the prison population one would conclude there is something wrong with black people.  But that is not correct

Us vs Them?

When my family and I get together, we always discuss politics and how to change the world.  Just like everyone we have more questions than answers. Our conversation typically starts with the problem.  And this particular day we chose to discuss the divide in our nation. You don’t need me to tell you just how divided we are as a nation.

What’s the vision?

In the previous two blogs I discussed love and forgiveness.  It is important to make sure we are free from hate and anger before we begin to rebuild and repair what was stolen.  The foundation can’t be tainted.  Now that we’re mentally and spiritually free let’s get to the business of change.  Every change starts with a vision.  I will

Choose Love

Like most I use my Facebook and twitter to check out the most recent  headlines. I typically do this on my way to work and somewhat throughout the day, depending on my availability.  I feel like there is a common theme that has been taking place, and I know it’s nothing new.  It just may be new to me because

Together Black

I believe it is important that black in America are able to see that we have accomplished in the United States, and be proud to be black in America. Change begins with us.
