They want to make an addition to the Constitution of the United States of America. It requires two-thirds of the House and Senate to approve of the proposal and send it to the states for a vote. Then, three-fourths of the states must affirm the proposed Amendment. It has only been done 27 times…

Blacks Schooled to Stay in a Daze

I was flipping through the TV channels last week and came across one of Spike Lee’s best movies, "School Daze."  This was a 1988 film written and directed by Lee.  The movie took an inside look at some of the internal issues that go on within the Black community—issues like dark skinned Blacks versus light skinned Blacks; Blacks that have “good”  hair versus Blacks with “nappy” hair; Blacks from wealthy families versus Blacks from poor families.   The movie was funny and serious at the same…
