It has been a week since reports came out that Donald Trump referred to immigrants of Haiti and African countries as being from “shithole” countries. And like many of the things Trump has said, there was a very calculated playbook utilized to deal with the comments. We have seen it time and time again from […]
The reason many hate Donald Trump is not because he’s a bigot, racist or alleged sexual predator, it’s because he doesn’t go about it in the right way. Donald Trump didn’t just become the president on November 9th 2016, he became the President long before, when Americans all over the country decided he was a […]
One of my favorite rappers and the urban philosopher, Jay Wayne Jenkins aka Jeezy once stated, “if a nigga lie to your face, how you respect him.” That bar has always stuck with me for because it speaks to some of the most basic truths of life.

It’s important to note that people can say stupid things regardless of […]
The War on Drugs in the United States is a sham to put it nicely, an affront to people who truly struggle with drug abuse and a way to control the social upward mobility of primarily, young minority male suspects. In July 2014 I wrote a short two-part series on the War on Drugs and […]
Six years ago Today, we lost maybe the most important figure in American music history. Michael Jackson who’s undisputed title as the King of Pop, was soon to go on tour when the world got the devastating news of his passing. So, in his honor today if no other, play that Mike Jack one time. Rest In […]
Today marks the day 238 years ago, when the United States decided that they would be a free nation, where people would come to have a better life than they once had under the British monarch. More than two centuries later, the question for some remains, who is the country free for?
A military coupe which removed Egypt’s first democratically elected President Mohammed Mursi from office has caused the country to go into a state of chaos and turmoil. This turmoil has seen the death toll in Egypt rise to 628 and counting over the past three days, as there seems to be no end in sight […]
The rich keep getting richer. In 2012, the median pay for a CEO of a large public company was $9.7 million, a 6.5% increase from the year before. The increase in pay only begins to tell the story.
