Passing the baton
Wednesday, November 19, 2014
In wake of the tragic plane crash that killed Pastor Myles Munroe, his wife, Ruth, and seven other passengers of the Bahamas Faith Ministries en route to a Global Leadership Forum, I came across one of his last interviews on Charismanews.com that resonated deeply with me. He said, “Politically speaking, I think we are in a leadership dilemma. We are
 
Are Republicans ready to welcome blacks?
Wednesday, November 19, 2014
Since the Republicans takeover of Congress Nov. 4, I have received numerous emails and phone calls from many of my Democratic friends indicating that they are ready to join the Republican Party. My dilemma is that I am not quite sure the Republican Party is ready to receive them. I began to call these friends one at a time to discuss what made them come to
 
Workers are paying down NC’s unemployment insurance debt
Tuesday, November 18, 2014
North Carolina’s unemployment insurance debt is being paid down, but a little recognized fact is that it is workers who have contributed the most towards its repayment, not employers. The debt itself was a result of the historic job loss of the Great Recession and the tax cuts that were provided to employers during good times that left the
 
Time for black Democrats to switch
Thursday, November 13, 2014
The midterm elections are over, the final numbers are in, and they don’t look pretty if you’re a progressive. So, I am going to propose something our national African-American leaders should have suggested a long time ago: It’s time for us to switch. No, not to the Republican Party.

What are you going to do for me?
Thursday, November 13, 2014
In the aftermath of the election, a lot of liberals are angry at candidates who ran away from President Barack Obama. They argue that Obama has been one of the most successful presidents in recent history. He saved the country from spiraling into a depression, he killed Bin Laden, he passed health care reform; he’s overseen the longest period of
 
Will conservatives overplay their hand or heed cooler heads?
Thursday, November 13, 2014
There’s no getting around the fact that when North Carolinians went to the polls on Nov. 5, they gave a thumbs-up to the conservatives who’ve been in charge at the General Assembly for the last four years. Republican victories might not all have been overwhelming (putting aside those districts rendered virtually immune from competition by GOP
 
Overcoming homelessness to become an A-student
Tuesday, November 11, 2014
“I decided that my education was the most important thing that I could ever have, because without your education, you can’t do much in this world. Some people find out the hard way. I did not want to be one of those people.” – Diamond May Seventeen-year-old high school senior Diamond May is devoted to her education. She takes all
 
Watching the elections from abroad
Wednesday, November 5, 2014
JERUSALEM — On Election Night, I usually stay awake as long as my eyelids are willing to cooperate. But this year was different. Instead of alternating between watching CNN and tracking results on the Internet, I was in the Holy Land, nearly 6,000 miles from my office in Washington, D.C. With daylight saving time going into effect last Sunday, I was
