Disaster and the ‘Free Press’

John Maxwell:

The British did not invent hypocrisy, they simply manage it better than anyone else. Americans, Israelis and Jamaicans appear to believe that euphemism and a tortured sort of ersatz gentility are adequate.


Real hypocrisy should be attempted only by certified experts. And having toiled in a BBC newsroom for five years as a copytaster, I must be presumed to know whereof I pontify.

The Director General of the BBC was last week caught out in an act of… Continue

Why I Write About Nigeria

Several times I have had cause to question myself on the reason why I write (and indeed, worry) about my country, Nigeria, or why I feel like contributing to several issues relating to the country on websites, blog-sites, and what not. I do not consider myself extraordinary or different to most of my fellowmen or women or fellow citizens, or an intelligentsia or a philosopher. In fact, I am very much unknown and rather anonymous amongst Nigeria’s estimated 140 million citizens. And honestly,… Continue

Economics: The New Slavery in Black America

Brandon Brice:

Last Sunday as I sat in the congregation of one of the most prestigious churches in Harlem, it mesmerized me to hear the praises, chats and applauses for President Barack H.

As a black man, it was an incredible moment in history to see someone who shared my same features, living on 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Interestingly, statistics show that a large majority of Americans feel that racism no longer exist,… Continue

Letter to Dr. King

In reading some of my previous columns, I ran across this particular one from January, 2005. I was quite stunned at the provocative words I wrote more than 3 years ago about many of the issues relative to our community. Of all the columns I have written over the years, this is by far my favorite one. As you read this, please keep in mind that it was 2005, Bush was president, Bill Cosby was being attacked, and the radical left Blacks (Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and Julian Bond) were… Continue

From The Ramparts

Junious Ricardo Stanton


“If the School of the Americas concentrated its training on protecting country borders from foreign aggression or safeguarding citizens from invasion by outside enemies, it would be considered an exemplary institution, worth the cost of American tax dollars and US prestige. But, the SOA has very different goals. Its curriculum includes courses in psychological warfare, counterinsurgency, interrogation… Continue

Economic 9-11

From The Ramparts

Junious Ricardo Stanton

Economic 9-11

“As in the case of 9/11, when the Bushies launched an invasion of a foreign country in the name of a national "emergency," our economic 9/11 has now become the occasion for a massive invasion of government into the private sector. The nationalization of the banks, the auto industry, and even, it's rumored, the newspaper industry, augur ill for the cause of individual autonomy and for the social base of… Continue
