Tweet ( Snake Eyes is a welcomed opportunity to see a cast of talented Asian actors dazzle. Even in an action franchise film built around a Hasbro toy doll, they excel. The film is an extension of a franchise started in 2009 with G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, when an elite military unit of special operatives (aka G.I. Joe) combated... [Read more...]

Tweet ( It seems as if the people who are doing the most productive work in black communities across this great nation are never the ones on TV complaining about how systemically racist the United States of America is.

Tweet ( There’s nothing new about the term critical race theory. The term goes back almost four decades. Then, a handful of Black scholars and writers came up with the term to name what for decades had simply been called battling racism. The reaction at first was, well really, no reaction.

Tweet ( One of the most repetitious yet bemusing moments that repeats itself in my courses occurs after I cover the indispensable contributions of Civil Rights attorney Charles Hamilton Houston’s fight for racial equality.

Tweet ( Disputes over COVID treatments and mandates are indicative of where the country is today.  Full of contradictions, hypocrisy, fear, anger and ignorance.  Vaccine mandates for children have all but wiped out infectious diseases like measles and polio in the school-age population.  Science works.

Tweet ( Truthfully, I can’t pinpoint where my belief that self-conception is crucial to politico-economic allegiance began. It could be that politicized parents raised me. Maybe it was reading Marcus “Mosiah” Garvey and W.E.B. DuBois’ calls for Black folk to turn inward and take care of their own, or perhaps it was my grandfathers’... [Read more...]

Filed under Business, Money, News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet ( Imagine a world where workers have real power. In this world, workers are paid a living wage, are protected by a strong union, and wield enough political clout to ensure Congress passes pro-worker laws. Corporations can’t treat them like robots and abandon communities to find cheaper labor elsewhere. It is a world of low... [Read more...]
