Playing the Long Game

I love it when a good plan comes together.    Many who are dazzled by the media and may have missed the plot.    We must remember, we're a civilization rooted in story-telling.   We share information filled with iconic imagery, symbolism, and sounds.     Celebrities are no different.  They use the media to tell stories that voice their platform position or opposition.   Case-in-point, On December 5, 2017 "Beyoncé surprised free-agent quarterback

White Folks are the Biggest Hypocrites

It goes without saying; white American's are the main ones who do not take responsibility for their actions. Where do I start; the mass murders, the drug and domestic abuse and terrorism, the welfare abuse and fraud, or the wealth and economic inequality gap? They cheat in everything from wage earning to college entrance exams, to voting and generational privilege. They had a 400-plus year head start on all people of color who they have kept back three grades in life, oppressed and literall

The Power of Positive Black-Esteem

Self-Acceptance - To accept the fact that you are Black. Regardless of where you live, what school you went to, how much money you make, and how many white friends you have, you are Black. None of the above things make you white or any more white than you think you are. They make you a successful, well educated, prosperous, and sociable Black person, which is an achievement in itself, and not an accepted convert to whiteness. It is important that Blacks realize that they are and always will be B

7 Ways whites Have Brainwashed and Oppressed Blacks Without using Religion

The irony behind this message is that there are things Blacks believe and do everyday under the rule of white America that have nothing to do with religion. In fact, the Bible teaches a person how to come out from under these modern forms of oppression, yet Blacks refuse to read the Bible. Black America has unconsciously associated white oppression with the Bible, which is why many still linger in perpetual mental slavery...Read More

How to Increase Your Emotional Intelligence

Best Dissertation Writing Services  Write about Many Forms of Intelligence Intelligence is an important factor in making our way in the world. What we know and how we use our knowlege is part of our intelligence. It is usually termed as academic and verbal intelligence. Often we think how smart we are is only dependent on our ability to do math or science, how we write and speak, how creative we are. I believe even humor is a form of intelligence because things are funny when we are ab

Weekend Thoughts

Episode 20 Listen to "Weekend Thoughts from richard murray" on Spreaker.   I have spoken to Washington Spirit many time; looking to the end of the national womens soccer league regular season I find a few simple point, to them. First, the Washington Spirit had a woeful off season organizationally. The players like Krieger they let go, the desire to get Pugh they sacrificed for long term is an example to a gamble. this coming off season, I want to see what the plan is to build aroun

Black America can win the Psychological War against White Supremacy

To understand the current war Black America is fighting against white America's attempt to resurrect white supremacy, you must first understand the weapons being used against us. The foremost weapon is fear, backed by threats of death by violence and confinement by imprisonment. These are the main weapons whites have used most against Blacks throughout history. Whites base their entire existence and authority on the use of violence and confinement or the mass murder of people who are not wh

Reminiscent of Rodney King?

https://relevantmagazine.com/slice/jury-finds-police-officer-not-guilty-in-shooting-death-of-philando-castile/      I had to give this post a moment of silence. I really thought this case would be a slam dunk. The gun was on Castile's hip, a 4yr old child was in the back seat, the mother in the drivers seat. What was the terror in that? This man is Stupid and Free to gloat to everyone he encounters just like Zimmerman about how he killed a black man and got away with it. Just a few Day

Philando Castile: The story that inspired my Blog

This past Tuesday will be 355 days since Philando Castile was killed. To this day, after watching that video; I'm still in shock. Why this case is still going on is beyond me. The Philando Castile case has always stuck with me because with Social Media (which I have a love/hate relationship with, however deemed necessary) we wouldn't have been able to witness for ourselves the senseless killings of Black men that happens everyday. What were normally left with is the aftermath of what the News ha

My Writing Islands

Leah Cutter has this idea for a  island map where you use the coordinates for the genre you write in and make these islands So I first had to list my work, I chose only the work I have published on Kobo, I didn't choose everything I have ever written or had accepted in this that or the other. While that would be fair, to be honest, my mindset is, if I incorporate those things that I may have to add another axis and I didn't want this to be muddled too much.

African-American/Black or Negro? How do you identify?

Definitely not American.  Our society has a long way for this "unthinkality."  Just imagine, "500 Americans have so far been killed in Chicago this year..."  It's almost laughable.  It’s unimaginable, grouping us all together in this fashion.  But shouldn’t we be?  American is simply, White American.  Let’s face it, it is.  But I do have hope, I never imagined having a Black President.... African-American.  To me it's like the new "negro."  Non-threatening, soft, 'light in the ass.'  This t
