I am interested in politics and current events. This blog provides me the forum to write about issues that we all face on a daily basis. We encourage feedback as we discuss issues in an intelligent, respectful way.

Donald Trump tweets about Dwayne Wade’s cousin’s death…it backfires

Donald Trump’s tweet-“Dwyane Wade’s cousin was just shot and killed walking her baby in Chicago. Just what I have been saying. African-Americans will VOTE TRUMP!”
As Nykea Aldridge laid in the morgue Donald Trump tweeted about her death. He saw it as an opportunity to say to the world that he was right about black neighborhoods, but it was seen for what it was. An attempt to capitalize on a death for political reasons. He was immediately called on the tweet by the Twitter world, but what does this say about Trump? Share your thoughts.

Is Hillary Clinton a bigot? Is Donald Trump a racist? Are those the biggest issues facing us?

Donald Trump has branded Hillary Clinton a bigot, and Clinton says Trump is a racist. They both have produced adds to support their points, but are these the two biggest issues facing us or all of us being punked? Have we merely become unwilling participants in a horrid reality show. Is our attention span so short that we can not tolerate a discussion of real issues? Are we getting what we deserve? If we demand more our candidates will it actually require more from us? Share your thoughts.

Is NBC mad at Al Roker for calling Ryan Lochte a liar?

When did wrong become right, and when did a lie become a misrepresentation of the facts. Last week we watched Ryan Lochte try to explain his Rio lies. Billy Bush and Al Roker had a heated exchange in which Roker declared Lochte a liar, but Bill Bush tried to soft pedal the offense. It seems like the real world sided with Roker but the NBC brass seemed to take umbrage to Roker’s reaction. Roker was right. We can’t tell our children not to lie but then try to justify the lies of the rich and famous. Lochte is an Olympian medal winner and he is also a liar and that is the truth even if as the NBC brass attempts to search for euphemisms.

Al Roker Is not letting Billy Bush “whitesplain” Ryan Lochte’s lies


You go Al Roker. You called a lie a lie not an embellishment. You didn’t “calm down” like Billy Bush suggested. You kept it real and kept it truthful.

Donald Trump’s appeal to black folks, “what do you have to lose”, now that’s a winning strategy


Nobody respects the black vote. The Democrats take us for granted and the Republicans ignore us. Well, The Donald polling 1-2% in the black community has articulated a new strategy, and that is the “what the hell do you have to lose: strategy. Not really offering anything new. Not even coming into the community to articulate it. Just standing in front of mostly white crowds he just screams his new words. Is this truly the way he should be talking to black folks? 2016 is a different kind of election. Hillary Clinton is no Barack Obama and black people are not going to come out in those Obama numbers for her. So my advice is they both need to learn not all blacks live in poverty. We are like all Americans…different, and they need to address us that way.
