Does Truth Still Exist?

From the Woodlawn Villager
By Joni L. Reynolds
Back in the good ole days the truth was not a subjective concept. It was bold and emphatic and you had to agree with it. Black was Black. Up was up, and down was down, but those days are gone. The truth has become a subjective concept subject to individual interpretation. I can remember watching Oprah and her saying the guest was “speaking her own truth”. What is her truth? Isn’t it just truth? We now live in the land where everyone has their own truth. Absolutes are challenged and we see this everywhere especially in our politics. We have been introduced to “alternative facts”, which are facts that conflict with the accepted proven facts. We now have the ability to watch news that affirms our opinion.
The days of Walter Cronkite are so far gone he has been replaced by Sean Hannity and Chris Matthews. Each one speaking the truth to their particular audience. So, both audiences walk away armed with their own truth and ready to defend it. How did we get here and is there any way we will ever accept one real truth?
Over the past few weeks we have seen President Trump accuse President Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower during the election. He had no evidence to support this information he tweeted to the world. This was his truth and he sent his minions and several government agencies in search of evidence to back up his truth. So far none has been uncovered, but Trump still holds fast to his truth.
So, we are left wondering where is truth and will we ever all be able to say in unison the sky is blue.

Billy Bush and Fox Analyst Judge Napolitano paid dearly for their Trump association

Billy Bush lost his NBC Today Show job after the Access Hollywood tape emerged showing him play the straight man to Donald Trump’s lewd conversation. Trump went on to be president. A few days ago Trump claimed the British were in on the “wiretapping” of Trump Tower. When pressed Trump said he heard it form a judge on Fox News. Judge Napolitano has been suspended from the network and Trump is still president. Association with POTUS can cost you your job.

If you have read any black history you have heard the story of Emmitt Till. Till was a 14 year old boy who took a trip down south in the 1950’s. He was from Chicago and he made the mistake of whistling at a white woman. Later that day he was dragged from a relative’s home and he was brutally murdered.

Now 50 years later Dana Schulz a foreigner makes the decision to do an abstract of the mangled corpse. Is there nothing sacred? This is offensive. Share your thoughts.

In 1995 the n-word was popularized during the OJ Simpson trial. The euphemism was used so the jury would not be offended by the amount of times the word was used throughout the trial. Since that time it has been adopted as a way of saying the word while not saying the word. Now the NBC Carmichael will air in episode this spring the n-word will be flying. This all black cast feel they have right to use the word, but do they? Read the linked story and share your thoughts.
