Was being brown Michael Browns problem?
It was a warn sunny day in July of 1999. The city was Fort Wayne, a medium sized town in the northeastern corner of Indiana. My mother saw me off and wished me well, as I drove due east to visit a college in an effort to ascertain a basketball scholarship. Paying for college was not even an option.

Finally, President Obama extended an invitation to African nations to participate in a Summit. It was rather short but yet it was a summit. He invited 52 of the 54 nations – omitting Sudan and Zimbabwe which he declares as being wicked. I have seen no official news reports about the number that actually responded. I heard anywhere from 40 to 50. One thing is certain. This event was historical and has put the African continent on everyone’s mind. Seeing thousands of people filling…Continue

I am so mad! “Who are you mad at” I ask myself. I am mad at them AND us! I am mad at all of the young girls who fell for the okeydoke that boys in heat tell them to satisfy their sexual curiosities. I’m mad when the girl’s best friend or mother suggests that they get an abortion and they say “No I…Continue
