  • Differences in the Treatment of Young Black Children

    “For two or more centuries, America has marched proudly in the van of human hatred- making bonfires of human flesh and laughing at them hideously, and making the insulting of millions more than a matter of dislike- rather a great religion, a world war cry.” -W.E.B. DuBois Lately, I have been thinking about the differences in the treatment of young black children and young white children in our society. How is that when a middle to upper-class white child commits a crime their whole... READ MORE

  • A Letter To A Friend

    “Whenever we decide to change, we meet resistance. We are always challenged to see if we are serious . . . “ -Andrew Matthews A Change of Heart A change of heart is the essence of all other change. The more you find the truth about yourself, the more you will be set free– free from improper evaluations of your worth; free from false pride that seeks to cover recognized flaws. One cannot function at an optimal level with a tired mind and body. At times you need to take time to... READ MORE

  • The Mis-Education of Black Children

    “The marvel of the living mind is that when it is illumined it can move into uncharted territories. It is enabled to take this step not out of reaction to the hurts of the past, but through the miracle of liberation from them…” -Indira Gandhi I read somewhere that “one of the highest most universal freedom in the world is the freedom to educate your children to live free.” But that is a freedom consistently, systematically and viciously denied the children of African descent in...

  • 2016 Presidential Election: What do we want?

    “The opposite of fact is falsehood, but the opposite of one profound truth may very well be another profound truth.” -Neils Bohr I’ve been thinking about the 2016 presidential election and how blacks are too focused on who we want in office when we should be more focused on what we want for our vote. Democratic politicians simply expect the black vote, like it’s inherited from their predecessor, while ignoring our concerns. Their prospects depend in large part on giving... READ MORE

  • Love Eternal

    May God bless you to the depths of your heart’s desire and give you joy, peace and contentment throughout your day. I greet you in peace and love eternal. I want you to understand me and my position as I understand you and yours. It’s important that you know that I will never take you for granted or mistreat you. Your trust is not misplaced in me. I’m not that kind of guy. I believe deeply in a relationship where the journey leads to the establishment of an honest, sincere... READ MORE

  • Forgiveness: An Apology to All Women

    “If anyone will take these two words to heart and use them for her own guidance, she will be almost without sin and will lead a very powerful life. These two words are bear and for bear.” -Epicetus I bring a message of apology for all the pain we men have caused you, for abandoning you to a world that has no idea the magnitude of your greatness. I apologize that we have termed you our baby’s mama, instead of giving you the title you deserve, that of Queen. I know we men have... READ MORE

  • Manhood (Part 2)

    “If a man seeks greatness, let him forget greatness and ask for truth, and he will find both” -Horace Mann What kind of example are you setting for the little homies out there? And more importantly, who’s raising your sons? I hope it’s not the TV or Internet. If so, not only does your son run a 90% risk of going to prison, there’s also a high likelihood that he’ll be gay or indulge in some kind of homosexual activity. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all... READ MORE

  • Manhood (Part 1)

    “What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson The other day I was walking the yard with one of the lil homies and we happened to be walking behind a few guys who were talking. I could not hear everything they were saying, nor was I trying to. But as me and the lil homie walked past them, I heard one of the them tell another, “Man, y’all need to grow up and be men.” Who teaches young boys to be... READ MORE

  • Look at Me

    When you look at me — I’m more than the flesh you see. You see a person, but that’s not me. I’m what your eyes can’t see. I’m the spirit that occupies me. I’m more than me. I want you to get to know who I really am, outside of what your eyes may see. This body is something I use to navigate this existence because we existed before the body we chose to inhabit. We fall short when we associate who we are to the body we dwell In darkness, we navigate the... READ MORE

  • Hello Beautiful

    Hello beautiful, I greet you in peace and love eternal . . . Let me begin by stating that I understand your reluctance and your fear because you’re not alone in them. I too am afraid, but I can’t allow that fear to rule me or come in between what my heart tells me it wants. And what it wants is you! By your own admission you too would like to explore where this may take us, which means your heart wants the same thing as mine. Is there a risk? Of course there is, but what in life... READ MORE
