I finally completed my name change yesterday and began notifying various organizations. I sent out letters and visited the credit union. It was fairly impressive that the credit union woman with the short-sleeved shirt had a scanner at her desk so she could scan my court document.
The actual legal proceeding took about ten minutes. The judge asked me a few questions. I have a state certificate that includes an initial for my… Continue

Talking about homosexuals without mentioning religion is impossible. As with many other subjects, the church unfailingly injects itself into a social… Continue

Gays in the Community
In many ways, the discrimination against gays brings about reminders of how whites tried to move away from blacks once segregation brought newly minted Negroes to the neighborhood. The media… Continue

Negro specific pamphlets, magazines and registries were common in black communities around the United States during the late 1800s up until the 1950s. One publication, The Negro Travelers’ Green Book was a travel guide series published from 1936 to 1964 by Victor H. Green. It provided Negro motorists and tourists information pointing out safe venues to stay, eat and sightsee during… Continue

Today, most folks wouldn't believe unless they saw it, but “The Negro Motorist Green Book” was a necessity for African Americans traveling around the United States during the Jim Crow era when discrimination against “people of color,” e… Continue

Members of the Congressional Black Caucus called President Obama on the carpet over the astronomical rates of unemployment in the African American community. The rates of unemployment in the black community is double that of the white community and if taken by city, it reaches nearly 30%, a number that escaped the record books. As a political move for the home folks--brilliant, but as a risky, back against the wall gutsy move--nada!
The Black Caucus is made up of black politicians… Continue

Just in time for the holidays and Black Friday! The five-minute Aunt Jemima Program: proof that in the Golden Age of Radio, "product placement" was not necessary, as the product WAS the show. Of course, since corporations are "persons," and "persons" have SUCKY memory skills, we may see this kind of entertainment again. After all, commercial encroachment into our minds has already been established; we… Continue

1. - Why is Atheism such a bad thing? Atheists: never burned others at the stake, never started/engaged in a Crusade and just want to be left alone for the most part.
However with the threat of FORCED CONVERSION
, anyone would be pissed and come out swinging. Likewise, do you think we would just allow you to publicly deface our belief and ESPECIALLY with such non-sense as you, Kirk Cameron, have presented as "fact"
? Why do Extremists think Atheism is such a threat to their… Continue

I did an internet radio/podcast with Deborah Cooper of Sucka Free Dating this week. It was unusual and fun to say the least. You can listen at this link:
The angle was very different than other podcasts I have done since it was more focused on how religion affects relationships and sexuality.

I firmly believe that the Black panther ,although these men were dressed up in the Black Panther's attire, did not sent this two over zealous individual to stand outside the poling station. On the other hand, one of the individual was a legal pol watcher. The fact remains, a night stick is a weapon, and standing in front of a poling station armed with a night stick is a extremely intimidating site for anyone. However, I firmly believe that the Black Panther's party had nothing to do with this… Continue

More reason to get rid of religion:
I have always been amazed listening to right wing's conservative Christians accusing people ,like Barack Obama, for example, who have pledged their life into helping better the lives of economic stricken working people as socialist and communist. Yet, these same right wing's conservative Christians put their faith and hopes in going to a place that is undeniable the ultimate welfare state ,called heaven, controlled by a communist… Continue
