“Cherishing and Challenging Kamala Harris: Issues of Commitment and Accountability”
November 26, 2020
There is no doubt that the nomination and election of Kamala Harris as Vice President Elect of the United States of America is of great importance and meaning to us as a people. Indeed, it was a hard-won victory, not only at the voting box, but over the numerous evil, oppressive and varied attempts to deny our vote and voice before and after the election. Like the election of President Baraka Obama, it is for Black people an historical achievement born of a constant and committed work and righteous and relentless struggle to expand the realm of freedom, justice, and equity in this country. ... read more »

“Ask Dr. Jeanette” At Success On “The Way”
November 26, 2020
Well, it occurs to me that if there is to be continued LockDown, it needs to be those of us who say we are special people of a chosen generation already locked down and locked in to our Creator. That’s the first thing. Let’s establish who we are and to whom do we belong? Do you think you are in and of yourself alone? How could that be? Is that possible? ... read more »

Senate Runoffs in Georgia Offer A Clear Choice
November 19, 2020
On Jan. 5, Georgia will hold a run-off election for both of its Senate seats. The races capture national attention because control of the Senate is at stake. If the two Democratic challengers, Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock, both win, the Senate will be effectively split 50-50, with Vice President-elect Kamala Harris breaking the tie. If one or both lose, Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell will retain his ability to obstruct the incoming president. ... read more »
Democratic Blue and Peoplehood Black: Necessary Distinctions Between People and Party
November 19, 2020
It is said that the defeat of Donald Trump signals that the country is ready for a change, but we have not been given on the nightly news, on social media or by mail, anything that resembles a comprehensive view of what the change might look like.

But we know from the ample evidence of history and the lived experience of our daily lives that whatever it means and promises for White folks and others, it will not mean or promise the same for us. ... read more »

November 19, 2020
The world would have us believe everything is “out of order.” It is not. The order ordained by The Almighty is in place. His plan is “outreach, wanting all to be saved.” What are we to do? Communicate with the Only One who knows omnipresent and omnipotently what is going on and what is happening. ... read more »
