March 8, 2018
In the midst of the wide-spread euphoria about the debatable real and actually imagined qualities, achievements and benefits of the fantasy movie, “The Black Panther”, it is good to remember that no matter how long we stay in the theater and no matter how many times we return to cheer, clap and dance in the dark, sooner or later the lights will come on, and we will have to exit and confront the off-screen, cold-water reality of America. ... read more »

Trump’s Mind, Mouth and Fecal Matters: Racism’s Red Meat and Raw Sewage
January 18, 2018

And his vulgar and morally reprehensible offense must not be dismissed as normal and diminished as unimportant nor rightful criticism be diverted in other ways.

Indeed, he has waded in the squalid swamp of racist comments and practice for decades, viciously attacking as citizen, candidate and president the various peoples of color: Africans, Native Americans, Latinos and Asians. ... read more »
