Where were you on September 11, 2001? Me? I had just came home from a 6 month Counter Drug Operation deployment in Central and South America. Yes, I was in the military...the navy. I was only home for 2 days and in New Orleans with my first wife buying food for my (step)daughter's birthday party. She was born on September 12, by the way. After the last plane crashed in Virginia I received a call from the government saying my leave was canceled and I was being deployed immediately to New York. My wife panicked in front of the Winn Dixie shoppers as they watched the news of the attack on TV. She was very upset that I had to go after being gone for 6 months. I gave her instructions on what to do if any other attacks occur. What scared me was I trained for the same attacks in...

Who has the authority to separate?

Who are the real owners of the place we call home? That's a question everyone should be asking in the next presidential election. I think of real common sense questions. Why is this so important? Well this photo was posted on another infamous website and linked to the page with a profile of me on it. What's interesting is this person wrote a caption stating the little girl in this photo was a criminal for being Black. Me, once again I totally disagree. Ruby Bridges would have lived a normal life but since she was forced to be among white kids is where all hell broke lose. This was during the Civil Rights movement. Educated Afrikans of the US today and during the movement agree that the Civil Rights movement was a farce. I'm 36 yrs old, my father told me how all his friends and family hated to be bussed...

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...
