America's women veterans deserve better
Tuesday, November 25, 2014
More than a quarter-million American women served honorably in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. These brave women sacrificed much to keep us safe. Now that they are home, our country has a solemn obligation to help them transition back to civilian life. Yet there is mounting evidence that America is not fulfilling this obligation. Based on current available
 
The quiet life-saving success of the ACA
Tuesday, November 25, 2014
You’d never know it from the overheated political rhetoric of the right these days, but thousands of people in North Carolina have been signing up for health care coverage since the new enrollment period under the Affordable Care Act began last weekend. You haven’t heard much about the problems with the healthcare.gov website lately either, the
 
‘Friends’ desert Cosby when he needs them most
Tuesday, November 25, 2014
“Hey, hey, hey (in my best Fat Albert’s voice), please listen to what I have to say. My friend Bill Cosby is in trouble today.” Even Fat Albert knows Bill Cosby is getting a raw deal. As a public relations/crisis management professional, I have worked with some of the biggest names in sports, entertainment and business. So let’s
 
Passing the baton
Wednesday, November 19, 2014
In wake of the tragic plane crash that killed Pastor Myles Munroe, his wife, Ruth, and seven other passengers of the Bahamas Faith Ministries en route to a Global Leadership Forum, I came across one of his last interviews on Charismanews.com that resonated deeply with me.

Are Republicans ready to welcome blacks?
Wednesday, November 19, 2014
Since the Republicans takeover of Congress Nov. 4, I have received numerous emails and phone calls from many of my Democratic friends indicating that they are ready to join the Republican Party. My dilemma is that I am not quite sure the Republican Party is ready to receive them. I began to call these friends one at a time to discuss what made them come to
 
Workers are paying down NC’s unemployment insurance debt
Tuesday, November 18, 2014
North Carolina’s unemployment insurance debt is being paid down, but a little recognized fact is that it is workers who have contributed the most towards its repayment, not employers. The debt itself was a result of the historic job loss of the Great Recession and the tax cuts that were provided to employers during good times that left the
 
Time for black Democrats to switch
Thursday, November 13, 2014
The midterm elections are over, the final numbers are in, and they don’t look pretty if you’re a progressive. So, I am going to propose something our national African-American leaders should have suggested a long time ago: It’s time for us to switch. No, not to the Republican Party. That would be tantamount to drinking Jim Jones Kool-Aid.
 
What are you going to do for me?
Thursday, November 13, 2014
In the aftermath of the election, a lot of liberals are angry at candidates who ran away from President Barack Obama. They argue that Obama has been one of the most successful presidents in recent history. He saved the country from spiraling into a depression, he killed Bin Laden, he passed health care reform; he’s overseen the longest period of
