With COVID-19 impacting the world around us, American's have become less interested in the preservation of life and more interested in the preservation of their 401k, the economy and the stock market, that less than 20% of Americans participate in and where 89% of Americans, aren't benefiting from it in the first place. Eleven percent of the American population control 83% of the nation's wealth. Eleven percent.  Now, we understand the fear, the plight, and the uncertainty in which we live today. But we also understand that the second round of COVID-19 may treat America like a second ..read more

With so much happening during this critical year for social, economic, and political engagement and empowering; it sometimes feels like we're sleepwalking to an uncertain end. This country is in a National Pandemic, every state in the land is affected and impacted by the Coronavirus. And yet, this White House has become so negligent and careless in their handling of this Pandemic that no one can ever say or suggest that this White House has ever LEAD this country in any meaningful manner when they tell the American people, we don’t need to test everyone, and the states are responsible for ..read more

The 2020 Election is a binary choice. It’s Black and White. In 2016, the GOP made it about Hillary Clinton. Ironically, the script was flipped and 2020 has become just that. And if Black America and Democrats in this country want any chance of surviving Trump's era and turning the tide to recover what we’ve lost we must vote. Our country is in a crisis and we have to ask ourselves is this person we want leading us. America can't afford another 16,250 lies and another four years. Our lives literally will depend on it. If we don’t register to vote in our communities  ..read more

Donald Trump told Americans that he doesn't believe that the number of ventilators requested by NY Gov and others to ensure their ability to live is really needed. Then he said, that he wouldn't even call governors if they didn't praise him for his handling of this national pandemic. The grotesqueness of his statement means that innocent Americans will die unless governors from certain states bow down and kiss the ring. As someone who is supposed to be the leader of our nation, Donald Trump is more concerned with receiving praise for causing this national disaster  ..read more

With COVID19 reaching 41k confirmed cases across the country and more than 450 Americans dead, our nation is in a crisis! Now with an Administration that is clearly out of its league in governing our country, local and state jurisdictions have had to scramble to save their fellow countryman and states from devastation. The Trump Administration has yet to pull the trigger on his emergency declaration calling on manufacturing and other companies to produce goods for America's national interest. Instead, he's claimed the virus will disappear.  At a time when neighborhoods are suffering finan ..read more

Italy tips the scale with 300 deaths in a single day escalating the count to 182K and over 7k deaths, with the US toping the scale at this hour at over 4,500 cases and over 80 deaths.  More cases are expected and unfortunately more deaths are inevidable. The federal governments response to this deadly disease has caused more people to die and others to get sick with the virus. The continued messaging of the virus being a hoax or a tool for impeachment prevented thousands of Americans from being tested and quarantined as to not infect others. Unfortunately, leadership is not the strong sui ..read more

Beginning in the 1800s, women organized, petitioned, and picketed to win the right to vote, but it took them decades to accomplish their purpose. Between 1878, when the amendment was first introduced in Congress, and August 18, 1920, when it was ratified, champions of voting rights for women worked tirelessly, but strategies for achieving their goal varied. Some pursued a strategy of passing suffrage acts in each state—nine western states adopted woman suffrage legislation by 1912. Others challenged male-only voting laws in the courts. Militant suffragists used tactics such as parades, silent ..read more

Over the past three year's America has experienced a dramatic shift in its social, economic and political norms.  The Trump Administration's attack on civility and basic human decency has opened up a heightened level of insecurity among white men and women. In addition, their use of fake news to disseminate false and misleading stories and present alternative facts has caused the American public to question the very words that are spoken out of the mouth of the person who is supposed to be the leader of the free world. And yet, outside of a very small core group of tribalists, A ..read more

America's Democracy

In America, we are afforded what is known as a Bill of Rights. We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America. But in 2021, Black Americans don’t seem to have any rights. No Bill of Rights, no Judicial Rights, and certainly no Voting Rights. So, where does that leave us? We'll ask Dr. Wilmer Leon, III host of SiriusXM ..read more
