Why I Am Suspicious of All Yard Sales

Dr. James L. Snyder One of the passions that I really do not have is going to yard sales. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage is another story. It is my sincere belief that yard sales were created with her in mind. There is not a yard sale within a 150-mile radius she does not know about. If she does not know about a yard sale, it probably is not a legitimate yard sale. Long ago I have come to the point ...

In the social justice world, it’s piranha eat piranha

By Printus LeBlanc In today’s hyper-sensitive world, a simple observation or sentence can get blown out of proportion and make worldwide news. The advent of social media has allowed the PC police to monitor and act twenty-four hours a day whenever someone’s feelings might be in jeopardy. But what happens one person with a victim card offends someone else with a victim card? In a recent press conference, Car ...

Vietnam – The Worst Years of our Lives – Part I

During the past two weekends Kay and I “binge watched” the PBS documentary special on The Vietnam War.  It is factual, well produced and is necessary for all Americans to view and take to heart.  Caution:  If you remember the Vietnam days like I do, it will be strong medicine to take.  It showed that our leadership (elected officials) is not a thing of perfection.  In fact, it is as faulty as humanity can b ...

One Good Deed Deserves A Kick In The Pants

Dr. James L. Snyder Have you ever had the feeling that any good deed you try is counteracted by a good swift kick in the pants? I recently grabbed a quick lunch at a local restaurant. I don’t like eating at fast food restaurants, but, occasionally, I don’t have much choice. Then, once in the restaurant the menu doesn’t give me much choice, either. I ordered my lunch and settled at a corner table. About half ...

The American Flag Is Soaked in Black Blood

By Julianne Malveaux (NNPA Newswire Columnist) I am not sure why the national anthem and the so-called American flag are part of our nation’s sports pageantry. Before 2009, while the national anthem was played, sports gladiators were not required to suit up, stand up, and put their hands to their hearts; and why should they? The song that is sung is an insult to people of color. When I hear “the land of the ...

Coming Out As a White Nationalist When It Comes to Immigration and Free Trade, I am a White Nationalist

By Raynard Jackson (NNPA Newswire Columnist) A few years ago, I wrote one of the most difficult, most personal columns I have ever written. I was totally terrified about going public with that particular column, because I didn’t know how strangers, my family, or my friends would respond to it. In 2013, I came out of the closet and out of the shadows. I publicly admitted that I was heterosexual. Wow. I tell ...
