Constructing The Blueprint for Black Male Success

Constructing The Blueprint for Black Male Success

Prior to September 12th 2009, had someone told me the blueprint for Black male success would arise from the state of Iowa I would have labeled them mentally deficient. Invited to share my expertise on the topic “The New Grinding: Expanding Your Consciousness as Your Life’s Work,” I was nonetheless excited to impart the merits of entrepreneurship to a group that seldom receives this message. It mattered not that this Fall retreat, titled “What’s Stopping Us Now?”, was being hosted for an assemblage of less than 50 students. I was eager to participate in The Hubbard Group’s revolutionary approach to fostering a sense of Black collegiate community.

The Politics of Machine Gun Machismo

The Politics of Machine Gun Machismo

AR – 15s were designed for the US military to quickly and accurately strike enemy forces on the battlefield. This lightweight machine gun’s sole intent is to kill. Despite these facts, radical 2nd Amendment enthusiasts find it acceptable to suddenly exhibit their gun “rights” in opposition to Obama’s healthcare proposal. This is very odd considering that healthcare has absolutely nothing to do with the 2nd Amendment. So what is the deeper message being conveyed by these fanatical pistol pushing partisans? Upon closer examination of their actions, it is apparent that they are fighting to uphold White supremacy and social inequality.

Death of Auto-Coon: The Movement

Death of Auto-Coon: The Movement

Negative images of Black culture in the media has finally pushed us over the edge. We’re fed up with the stupidity and ignorance. How much longer will we allow corporations to force feed the general public images of Negroes that do nothing more than degrade our race? While we do not feel there should be one monolithic thought process that persists in the Black Community, we feel the intelligence, sophistication, and ingenuity of our people should be broadcast for the World to see.

Racism Still Exists In The Age Of Obama

Racism Still Exists In The Age Of Obama

With REO needing relief from the corporate plantation and me needing some fresh air and a Red Stripe, we decided to join the festivities at The Baker St Pub. Little did we know that the night would end in frustration, disbelief, and anger over blatant racial discrimination…

Michael Vick And The American Double Standard

Michael Vick And The American Double Standard

As the owner of two loyal pit bulls, I felt no sympathy for Michael Vick when the laws hauled this dimwit off to the penitentiary. Vick got what he deserved. Anyone that promotes the unnecessary destruction of living creatures is a heinous, vile individual. Finding pleasure in the violent demise of animals trained to rip flesh from bones is despicable. However…

World Day: Michael Jackson’s Eternal Legacy and the Reason for His Death

World Day: Michael Jackson’s Eternal Legacy and the Reason for His Death

Many of my friends have asked me why I waited so long to post an article on my childhood hero Michael Jackson. The truth is, until today I didn’t know how to absorb the news. Every time I tried to sit down and write how I felt about Michael’s passing, I became too overwraught with tender childhood recollections of watching Moonwalker.

What The Senate's Apology For Slavery Really Means

What The Senate’s Apology For Slavery Really Means

You probably missed it, (I know I did), but the United States Senate issued a formal apology for slavery a few days ago. [Begin Sarcasm] Thank you Uncle Sam! This news made my Juneteenth shuckle buck all the more livelier, as I not only celebrated my ancestors learning of the 2 year old Emancipation Proclamation, but now the great-great-great grandsons of their slave masters unanimously concluded “My bad.” So now that the federal government has come clean after 144 years, I guess everything is all good. Break out the tea and crumpets, chicken and watermelon, gin and juice… celebration time Negroes! [End Sarcasm].

Generation Xed Out

Generation Xed Out

I hardly watch TV since I feel guilty about the multiple other tasks I could be completing while sitting in front of the boob tube. In the same amount of time I could allow the television to draw away my attention, I could be writing a new chapter in my book, finishing a lecture, improving a marketing plan, or curiously researching a fascinating topic. Therefore, catching ABC News’ Earth 2100 was indeed a rare and inadvertent event. I just happened to be looking for the following day’s weather forecast, when I stumbled upon the program and was immediately drawn in, as if I were standing on the event horizon of a black hole. Earth 2100 painted the picture I had in my mind of capitalism’s dire consequences.
