This year at the BET Awards, the network honored six people whom they call “humanitarian heroes.” Among the winners is North Carolina 16-year-old Justin Blackman, the only student to walk out of Wilson Preparatory Academy on March 14. Students across the country walked out of classes that day, one month after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas […]

After initially declaring rather clearly that the death of Judge Sheila Abdus-Salaam, whose body was found floating in the Hudson River last week, was likely a suicide, the NYPD made a public pivot this week – announcing that Abdus-Salaam’s death was “suspicious.” While this may have been a shift for the NYPD, millions of curious […]

I love Atlanta. I moved here when I was 17 years old to attend Morehouse College. I got married here, my kids were born here, I bought my first house here, and it’s where I really became a man and a leader. Except for a few quick stops in California and New York, I’ve spent […]

I’ve never voted for a Republican a single day in my life, but as an American, I found what the Republican Party pulled last week to be deeply embarrassing. For the past 8 years they based their entire identity on opposing and repealing and replacing Obamacare. They held over 60 different nearly unanimous votes over […]

Have you ever heard of Relisha Rudd? Yesterday, through all of the noise about Donald Trump and his lies, I heard her name for the very first time. The sweet little eight year old girl, which is the same age of my precious daughter, Savannah, has been missing for three long years. She lived in […]

Before Donald Trump was ever elected, we knew he was a truly gross man — a liar and a cheater, a misogynist and a bigot, willing to play on the worst tendencies of this country for applause or votes. It was one thing when we knew of him that way as a reality TV star. It […]

From 1914 – 1918, Adolph Hitler was an amazing award-winning soldier in the German military. Later as President, he developed one of the most effective anti-smoking campaigns in the world. Under his rule, Germany revolutionized the jet engine. But, you know, and I know, that those facts don’t mean a damn thing. He was a […]

Jaylon Sewell is a good kid. Just 16 years old, he’s an active leader in his local church, a good student, and manager for the football team at Neville High School in Monroe, Louisiana.
