I have a challenge for every African American who reads this status. (Why) we claim to be tired of being stereotyped as violent, no good, thieves, Ignorant, and loud. But scroll down your facebook, turn on the news! Seems like that's all we do. We will quickly repost a video of 2 black males fighting, we will tag everyone we know in videos of kids cussing. We will repeatedly my watch videos of our young women degrade themselves. We're seen taking lives not saving them. I challenge you all…Continue

Quoted King of 273 Records Inc.: (KING???) lol..A true leader, maybe because a fake leader is the one who wants to be famous, the one who wants to be praised by people, and I'm the exact opposite. I've become both the one who humbles himself and the one who doesn't eat and sleep well because of thinking of financial ways that would make others eat and sleep well... I asked and was blessed with everything up to this point from leading our team, to knowing fan needs/wants. God opposes the…Continue

“How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?” (Romans 10:14)
One of the things that I have noticed is that many professing Christians have an…Continue

I think, it is time to retire the words African American in favor of the words Black American or even better American. Words mean allot, and the words African American send the wrong message, and a message that hurts Black Americans, I think. The words African American send the message "that we are not really part of the overall mainstream of our society - and do not desire to be, we have our own thing going, and the rest of the mainstream society is not really welcome". As President Obama…Continue

In a way, the quote above says it all. However, I would like to peel this conversation in layers, like peeling an onion. I will take this opportunity to uncover why some people are only comfortable with smooth seas or…Continue
Anyone with an ounce of objectivity has to admit that the state of the nation is much better than it was in 2008 when President Obama was first elected. Yet critics and naysayers suggest that the United States is actually worse off today, and “going in the wrong direction” under the Obama administration. Many of those naysayers are Republican candidates running for congressional and senate offices who talk about “repeal” and “going back”.
The fact is you can’t go back. The sun doesn’t…Continue
When President Obama was elected president in 2008, and re-elected in 2012, much of the outcome was based on the fact that Black people in America made sure they exercised their right to vote. The 2008 and 2012 presidential elections were historic, and Black America was front and center making sure that its voice was clearly heard.
Now we come to the mid-term elections of 2014. Although President Obama is not on the ballot, it is imperative that Black folk get out and vote. We need to…Continue
Civil Forfeitures: IRS Seizing Bank Accounts from Innocent Americans without Charges or Trials
We’ve talked about the security of the banking industry many times in the past, but the story we found today should come as a huge wake-up call to those who think their money’s safe in today’s banking system.
The American Enterprise Institute ran a story earlier this week of a Family who had their entire bank account wiped out, after the IRS used civil forfeiture laws to seize all of…
I know what really happened between Officer Wilson and Michael Brown. I have watched allot of the media coverage and this is what happened. Michael was a young, large teenager and he was very mad about his life. He and his buddy robed the convenience store of a handful of cigars (everyone agrees with that). Then he wanted to show how tough he was by walking down the middle of the street (everyone agrees that he walked down the center of the street). This behavior that Michael chose attracted…Continue

In our society, we are taught to have an opinion and speak our minds. What we are not taught to do is listen. We are so focused on our opinion that we often fail to hear what is being communicated to us.
Sure. We are taught to pay attention to what someone says to us, whether in a public forum or in our most…Continue
