Are You All In? ...Or On the Sidelines?

Posted by E. Joyce on Wednesday, September 28, 2011, In : News and Politics 
This will be an interestin­g election period. Most of us still can't discern one group from another, given that we suddenly have so many to choose from. So a moment of enlightenm­ent to define who some of the players are. Do you know what and who the "Professio­nal Left" is? The term “professio­nal left” denotes a growing industry that specialize­s in converting other people’s money into an ideologica­l product, while making a good living out of it in the process. They are ...

We can believe in change if we are a part of it...

Posted by E. Joyce on Wednesday, September 8, 2010,
Got into and out of a fairly useless conversation, where folks were criticizing the President from the sidelines.
People can sit and armchair quarterback President Obama forever, yet never have a clue to the complexity and difficulty of the job, further exacerbated by the color of his skin.  Where were all you folks and your opinions eight years prior? Because I don't recall seeing any of you expressing them.  This President has been in office under two years trying to redirect the nation to s...

Carter, Racism and the Republican Strategy

Posted by E. Joyce on Thursday, September 17, 2009, In : News and Politics 
Jimmy Carter, a southerner and a former President, shared an observation last night that reverberates through the media, parties and around the watercoolers today. He observed some of the behaviors at these public outings and town halls, as well as the infamous and inappropriate "You Lie" from Wilson --a congressman who knew better, and even his wife wanted to know "What nut yelled 'You Lie' in the middle of the President's speech?" -- were based in racism toward the President.

The President's Speech: What Were/Are They Afraid Of?

Posted by E. Joyce on Saturday, September 5, 2009,

State of the Union X

STATE OF THE BLACK UNION X

When your rhetoric
Turns into acts of true change
Then I will hear you.



In a place
In a space
Where I/you/we are
Where dreams are fading/ero

But we never asked what's amiss.
While we waited for the trickle to fall down on us.

New Chief in town.
And to their dismay, his skin is brown.
Time for ch...
