An Awful Demonstration of Cruelty, Timidity, and Aversion to Change. Normal indicators suggest that Criminal Justice Reform (CJR) is not among priorities even on the Trump administration’s D- list. One might rightly conclude that the time and money expended so far, is either to appease the system’s critics or foot-drag the issue to 2020. Some […]
We have a choice: we either shape the world we daily inherit, others will.
The Crimes of Criminal Justice
Risks of Appeasement
I cannot say that I know exactly what prompted me to write about this. I respect the fact that lots of women are doing excellent advocacy, writing persuasively and causing change in some circumstances affecting women’s lives across the planet. Though I give deference women’s voices on the issue, it’s my studied belief that this […]
I can’t even imagine a situation where someone is being interviewed for ANY job, and the cadidate behaves like an overly stimulated pig, yet demands that he gets that job. Insult to injury, a member of the team, joins the intemperate pig and also insults the panel, threatens them and the dithering, toothless, chair sits, […]
Stand Against Police Violence and Injustice.
This is my blog and my voice. I manage my blog for free and would never publish hate or lies. I refuse to believe that an ant can’t get an elephant’s attention, if he, the ant, is nasty, dogged enough, persistently annoying and able to call up a swarm. I thought that would be an […]

I hope that they set aside positions stemming from frustration. I believe that Black people are oppressed and treated as non-citizens. Civil […]
Tucker Carlson works at FoxNews. He talks. What he disseminates would be unacceptably deficient at most high school student-volunteer broadcast rooms. Yet, he talks. Carlson has knocked about television talk shows as a guest representing conservative political views. A few times he hosted short-lived shows.

Check out this video on YouTube: Still believe that you must have done something wrong
I ask the above question on behalf of all the people who are teens and below. Those persons in the most optimistic phase of life. Those who have ideals they believe to be universal simply because those ideals are buttressed by what they know is ethically right. Look to history, stare it, and pray that […]
Congratulations Colin Kaepernick, on your achievement and international recognition. You are an inspiration and will long be remembered for your sacrifice and tremendous courage. Thank you. Someday a smart child somewhere in the world might be puzzled to find the reason why African Americans, who do so much for America’s prestige and advancement, are appreciated […]
Everyone has his version of the truth but seldom share it. Whether it’s the taste, the smell or whatever, the ugly thing can help you lose friends and create bitter enemies. I wonder if it’s because once acknowledged, the truth will not leave until you do or stop doing, a particular wrong. Our criminal justice […]
No one has the moral authority to kill another human being. Once we start from that premise and understand that capital punishment rests on a foundation of muck created by men, there’s nothing more that needs to be said. It is legal only because they say that it’s legal. It is legal because of citizens, who […]
