For All Points-Of-The-View.

Now that Romney is the defacto nominee for the Republican Party, I have been reflecting on the state of the presidential race as it enters the final stretch. As a political strategist, I understand the necessity to run to the right during the Republican primary and then migrate to the center during the general election.
It is common knowledge that Romney has no intention of…Continue

Last week I wrote a column entitled, “Roland Martin Is Not GLAAD.” In that column, I discussed the unfair treatment of TV personality, Roland Martin.
I thought I was finished writing about this issue and was prepared to move on. But, after receiving tons of phone calls, voicemails, and emails about Tom Joyner’s “Letter to Roland: Make It Right,” I feel compelled to make another comment about the Martin…Continue

I originally had absolutely no intention of writing about the recent flap surrounding TV personality Roland Martin, but because of the unfair treatment he has received; and his seeming inability to defend himself, I feel compelled to speak out.
Martin is a syndicated newspaper columnist, a political analyst for CNN, and host of his own TV show on TV One. During last Sunday’s Super Bowl, he tweeted: “Ain’t no real…Continue

As America celebrated Martin Luther King Jr. ‘s birthday this week and is getting ready to celebrate Black History Month in February, I have reflected on the state of liberalism and its impact on the Black community and have concluded that I am very confused!
What am I confused about? Before Obama’s election as president, no one thought we would ever see a Black person elected president because of…Continue

How many of you fly on airplanes or frequent government buildings? If you do, you know you must show some type of government I.D. to get on a plane or enter into a government building.
To my knowledge, I have never heard anyone claim they…Continue

Last week, as I was riding the local train in Washington, DC, I began to ponder on the thoughts that had begun to flood into my mind.
I was president of my senior class at Soldan High School in St. Louis, MO. I had a lot of my friends who worked hard to get me elected. So, during this train ride, I wondered how my classmates would have responded if I decided to put all my energies into…Continue

As the two supposed premier civil rights groups gather this week and next for their annual conventions (the N.A.A.C.P and the National Urban League, respectively), I want to challenge their agendas and then pose a few questions for them to answer.
When civil rights are discussed in the media, you never have the reporter define what civil rights are? When you see Jesse Jackson…Continue

How long will the Black community continue to allow the Obama administration and the Democratic Party to insult them and then blame it on Obama not wanting to be perceived as a “Black” president?
Let me give an example. You have invested in a business project, Obama Inc.
There were 4 classes of investors: class W, which comprised 74% of the total stock; class B, which comprised 13% of the total stock,…Continue

In agriculture, if the root of the plant goes bad, so goes the rest of the plant. Above the ground, the plant may be very beautiful, but internally it is dying.
This reminds me of “The Root” online magazine (www.theroot.com). According to their website: “The Root is a daily online magazine that provides thought-provoking…Continue

Last year I wrote a column about how President Obama totally disrespected Black America (during Black History Month of all times) and there was no outcry from within our community. You can read that column at:

Having received so many calls this week on the approaching anniversary of Michael Jackson’s death June 25, 2009, 1:25 p.m. (LA time), I decided to re-run the column I wrote last year in the aftermath of his death. This was my tribute to Michael and his family. I will have an exclusive announcement about this very soon, so be on the…Continue

Can you imagine Michael Jordan seeking advice on basketball from a ping pong player, or Tiger Woods seeking advice on his golf swing from a rugby player, or Bill Gates seeking advice on technology from a Buddhist monk?
Even Hollywood, with all its creative energy, could not have come up with such a script. Even if they did, no one would believe them. They would be run out of town. But, what would you say if I told you of a…
