Harry Reid and slavery

The classical poet A.E. Housman wrote, “For nature, heartless, witless nature…” He might have said the same thing about history which like nature is neither cruel nor kind, right or wrong; it is simply indifferent.  It has, as they say, no dog in the fight.

Oprah's next big success

(NNPA) - When Oprah recently announced she would be leaving her syndicated talk show in 2011 to start her own cable network, I was reminded of the impact her phenomenal success has had on the lives of millions of people around the world.

Historic Health Care Bill passed in House, now Senate must act

(NNPA) - After winning this year's American League Eastern Division championship, the New York Yankees faced a gauntlet of 11 more games before they could claim their 27th World Series title. Each playoff victory took the team closer to its final goal, but as Yankee legend, Yogi Berra once said, "It ain't over till it's over." The same can be said about health care reform.

Thanksgiving means lifting up each other

(NNPA) - The last five weeks of the year, the days beginning with Thanksgiving and moving through the New Year, are days when we all wind down.  Some of us don’t want to admit it, citing business as usual. But the fact is that from the first thanksgiving party to the last holiday gift exchange, we have collectively decided that the year is over and we can’t do much about it.

We cannot sit idly by and watch our innocent children die

(NNPA) - For decades now, I have traveled across this nation to listen, learn and absorb the concerns and frustrations of the community.  I’ve marched with victims of police brutality, consoled families who have viciously lost loved ones and called for transparency and proper judicial proceedings for those that have been wrongfully victimized by our system.
