How an Understanding of Race as a Social Construct Strengthens the Call for Black Liberation

This begs the question of whether, by overtly celebrating and protecting my Blackness, I’m becoming a prisoner of the very box that I’m trying to escape. By solely organizing with Black people, am I participating in the race war that the Elites are creating from afar?

The Black young urban professional class must connect with the grassroots actors in their community and use their expertise, brain power, and resources to make our Nation more self-determined and economically independent.

No Matter Who Wins the Primary, I’m Not Voting for a Democrat. Here’s Why.

Frankly, we just have to create our own table, “centralizing, organizing, and coming as one” as His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I recommended to his fellow African leaders decades ago.

It’s Not Over!: Practicing Kwanzaa in the New Year

For those looking to AllEyesOnDC for enlightenment, understand that I too grow tired and weary from the mayhem people of African descent see in all corners of the world. That’s why I work as hard as I do to build a news brand that makes some sense of that.

I’m Tired of Protesting.

Anyone who says differently sure as hell hasn’t had the sense of hopelessness that I felt on the corner of 9th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue, contextualized by lessons life thrown my way about what it truly means to be a black man in America.
