Death to Our Future

In 1950, two million was the count for people housed in the city of Philadelphia. Since then, that number has done nothing but decrease due to the ploys used to keep the numbers beneath a particular quota. The Black Community, give the city a 44.3 percentage rate out of 100 according to the United States Census Bureau of 2012, which means that 55.7 percent are of other races (Latino, Caucasian, Asian, Korean, etc.). That does not include the folks who chose not to participate in the census, or the people who provide shelter to family and friends. The two, would give the Black Community a percentage rate well over the fifty mark it’s been kept under. Blacks possess a multitude of threats and must be contained and controlled by any means necessary. For one, if we are allowed to continue to reproduce in the numbers in which we do today then...

THE RIGHT VOICE OF THE NOVEL

While swimming, or walking Caesarian on the shores off Coney Island, I am reminded that less than a year ago,my precious ocean over-turned, and we were greeted by the fish and the mud and the debris of other shores.When my beautiful granddaughter, Aria, was born, and my second son married this past August, I thought about completeness. I thought GHOST RUNNERS and THE WHITE BRIDGE were also my legacy. When I collaborated with Anya Z to produce the cover for THE WHITE BRIDGE, I was elated.GHOST RUNNERS is a novel about the suppression of the American Dream. My dream was to TELL this story, to shout it from the highest rafters. The story took me 27 years to write. THE WHITE BRIDGE taught me never to be silent in the face of tyranny. THE WHITE BRIDGE is nothing unless it has the widest berth to transcend the scourge of fascism. Two...

Can We Talk About It?

You are not alone. The exact same thing that are heavy on your mind has been on the mind of others before. Yet, will you let that be a stepping stone or a boulder the weighs you down? The beauty of the internet is that you can reach out to someone. Free yourself to deal with an issue minus the uncomfortableness of actually exposing your personal issues.

I am looking for questions dealing with Relationships and Domestic Violence. Being that my next book approaches the subject like never before, I assure you a change has come. So, please join me tomorrow as we build a better tomorrow.

What is the definition of a "Successful" black man and by your or who else's standards?


     On another infamous social site this picture was posted.  It got about 1900 hits with half the number of comments, cool if you want to be popular.  What's just as disturbing is the captions that came with the photo.   The original or sub caption reads "INSTEAD OF TEACHING HIS SON HOW TO READ OR BECOME A SUCCESSFUL BLACK MAN........NIGGA TRAINING HIM 2 GO 2 JAIL EARLY!!!!"        Now I commend the person who posted the pic for trying to reach out but then I continued on to read the name of the alias of the person who posted it and let me tell you, that person maybe the person in the same picture or the person who took it.  Hey it's all about credibility.  Don't be mad, just saying.    The second captions reads "Even got lil bro in a wifebeater waiting for his chance at...

A failed system, or is it?


    Above is a picture of Frederico Bruno, he is accused of pushing his ex-girlfriend and 3 month old child out of a window three stories high.  He climbs down from the same window, finds a metal bar stool leg and beats her with it as she is lying on top of the 3 month old baby who broke her fall to a concrete ground.  Read that over again.  Take a deep breath.  Now who is the blame for this type of violence?  Before you go any further, let me add this too...the widow also had an air conditioner installed in it.  For real!  Who do you blame for this type of violence?  Violence has such a profound meaning.  It sure can sway any jury.  Oh did I tell you, he sliced up the victim's friend who attempted to call the police.  Yes sir!  He left them all for dead....
