First, learn what racism is, and what it’s not. I need White people to understand that all White people are racist.

Admit it, and let’s move onto the business of repairing and healing the country. We can’t do it without you.

Yes my dears, all White people are racists. All…

Black Folks Are Checking Out Of Politics

Black people are fed up with the broken promises of the Democratic Party. They are tired of Democrats not fighting for them. They need White people who will go hard in the paint for them the same way we’ve gone hard for them. We’re tired of cleaning up messes White…

Everyone in America Should Be Able To Afford A Decent Home, Except Black People

In America, poor Black and Brown people simply aren’t supposed to have anywhere to live, not for long anyway. Heavens forbid enough Black or Brown people can hang around in one spot long enough to make an entire community for themselves. We’re really in trouble. We're not supposed to have…

More School Board Meeting Opposition On The Way. Allies Are On Vacation

Older Lifelong Black Democrats Are Tired

My dad has been a lifelong Democratic party supporter. He’s always voted for Democrats in every election since he could vote. Living in South Carolina all of his life in one of the baby cradles of the Confederacy, he understood how politics worked and how Black people for far too…

Many Blacks In The Diaspora Have Anti-African American Views Like White Conservatives

Having traveled among different Black communities in the U.S. and as well as the opportunity to casual acquaintances with many African and Caribbean Blacks in the U.S. with various statuses, and having traveled abroad to a few Black countries, my personal experience is that many Blacks haven’t (and many still…
