Speaking Out: What a Leader should be

by Jacqueline Miles It’s amazing how we have lost track of words like integrity, honesty, morals and respect.  Have we become so desperate for the things of this world that we are willing to sell our souls for a few morsels of money, recognition and stature? When we stoop so low as to lie on …

Palin’ Around with Lunatics Runnin’ the Asylum

Jude Stewart It is no small irony that HBO’s “Game Change” hit the airwaves in the same week as Florida’s elephantine radio bloviator RushMouth apologized (because of an advertisers’ revolt) to a woman he called slut & prostitute.

Blacks Nab 4 Oscars, but Deserved More

by C. A. Jude Stewart Two weeks ago, “The Help” didn’t get all the help (Oscar votes) it needed to win the big enchilada (best picture). And as Fats Domino (& Dave Bartholemew) sang in their No. 1 hit single for Imperial Records (recorded in N’awlins, LA) in 1955, “Ain’t that A Shame.” Why? “The …

Romney’s “Free Enterprise System”: As Statist as Stalin’s Five-Year Plan

By Kevin Carson The rule of centralized state and bureaucratic machines is one of those things that the cultural reproduction apparatus teaches people to accept as “natural” or “inevitable” (“it must be more efficient, or it wouldn’t be this way;” “the people in charge make these rules for a reason”).

One Fallen Star, One Refreshed Heavenly Choir

by C. A. Jude Stewart Well, a shooting star in the black cultural firmament is gone. She’s another in a long line of elite black musical talents who perished prematurely because of her demons within. Strangely, Whitney’s “sudden” death at 5:55 pm Pensacola time (last Saturday 2/11) was — like a lethal hurricane gathering Gulf …

By: Calen Fretts C­­­itizens across our great nation are realizing that the Republicans and Democrats in Washington no longer represent their interests, and they’re ready for a severe change to the political status quo.

The Gantt Report: Same Black Candidates, Same Losers

By Lucius Gantt It’s 2012, another election year, and every Black community in America has candidates that always run for office and those same candidates always lose!
