Black Economic Empowerment: Get what’s right, not what’s left.
(Akiit.com) If you are serious about economic empowerment, you must dismiss the empty rhetoric of pandering politicians, the transparent ramblings of self-righteous religious pretenders, the oratory of warmongering money-grubbing government officials, and the unbounded pronouncements and musings of speechifying intellectuals. If your leaders are only talking about the problems and have nothing to... [Read more of this review]
Milwaukee, My Burning City.
(Akiit.com) My city, my hometown, is burning. This weekend, Milwaukee saw a riot on Sherman Blvd. Police and race relations in Milwaukee are fragile. The public is outraged and placing blame. With fingers pointed, the outcome is still the same. Families in Milwaukee who’ve felt victimized by the police haven’t gained resolution. In communities where there is no justice, the outcome is often no... [Read more of this review]
How Donald Trump can break Dems’ chokehold on blacks.
(Akiit.com) Donald Trump is doing something remarkable.
Something no other recent Republican presidential candidate has had the courage to do: He’s making a serious effort to break the chokehold Democrats have had on black voters for the last 50 years!
Trump has made some outstanding speeches this past week reaching out to black voters. Speaking in Michigan, Donald Trump lamented the death of American... [Read more of this review]
Rep. Donald Trump Peddles the Plantation Myth About Blacks and Democrats.
(Akiit.com) The GOP never tires of pitching the line in a presidential election year that the Democrats take black votes for granted and do absolutely nothing in return for those votes. The line goes that the Democrats’ alleged job killing, tout of entitlements, promotion of dependency and mind-numbing damp down of personal initiative have in effect created a modern-day plantation that traps blacks...

When the Suspect Is an Armed Black Man — and the Cop Is Blacky Black.
(Akiit.com) After the death of a young black man by a Milwaukee police officer, riots, looting and fires followed. In one instance, as a gas station burned, people watching chanted, “Black power!” Local news reported that the 23-year-old suspect was not only armed but that he also defied orders to drop his gun. The Milwaukee police chief refused to identify the officer involved, but did... [Read more of this review]
Ole Blacks Still Singing Same Old Song.
(Akiit.com) Repetition is an important part of learning. In lieu of the condemnable behavior and hate-filled racist screeds of race-mongers inciting malevolent sub-human behavior, I believe reposting my syndicated piece from February 25, 2014 speaks well to what has taken place in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The piece is now nearly two and one-half years old. My question to blacks and the media eager to... [Read more of this review]
‘Three’ Ways Successful Women Never Stop Learning.
(Akiit.com) There’s something in me that gets all giddy at the thought of learning new and fascinating information. It may explain why there are three open books on my nightstand as I type these words, each in the process of being read. It may explain why, in advance of a visit to Italy, my husband’s gift of an Italian language course excited me so much I had butterflies as I started listening... [Read more of this review]
Integrate Sports & Exercise Into Your Daily Routine.
(Akiit.com) We all know how important exercise is if you want to lead healthy lifestyle. Of course, there is a big difference between knowing it, and practising it. If you are like most people, you probably find that you do not get nearly as much exercise as you probably should. Even for those who have a serious interest in sports, it can be tough to work it into your life. The problem, for many people,... [Read more of this review]
In Praise of Republican Paul Ryan.
(Akiit.com) Voters in last week’s Republican primary in Wisconsin wisely supported House Speaker Paul Ryan, in a landslide, to continue to represent them in Congress.
Ultimately, in our beautiful democratic republic, members of Congress answer directly to those voters they directly represent. And those, like the speaker of the house, who achieve power as national leaders, still ultimately answer... [Read more of this review]
Please Stop Pestering Rep. Donald Trump to Speak to Blacks.
(Akiit.com) Here’s the selected checklist of black organizations, groups and individuals GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump has flatly refused to speak to, reach out to or even acknowledge exist. They include: The NAACP, the National Urban League, The National Association of Black Journalists, Black Pastoral groups, and a host of Black business groups and entrepreneurs most recently in Detroit....

Yes, Providing for the Common Defense, with Common Sense.
(Akiit.com) This past Monday, GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump delivered his speech on national security and his vision to defeat the Islamic State. The speech connected various talking points, but for the professional national security strategist it lacked a clear and focused doctrinal base. Mr. Trump would have been better served to break down the map according to the geographic AORs (areas... [Read more of this review]
2016, Is Free Trade Causing Job Loss?
(Akiit.com) International trade figures heavily in the presidential race. Presidential candidate Donald Trump said, “Hillary Clinton unleashed a trade war against the American worker when she supported one terrible trade deal after another – from NAFTA to China to South Korea.” And adding, “A Trump Administration will end that war by getting a fair deal for the American people....

Why We Say Black Lives Matter.
(Akiit.com) A friend of mine was conducting a diversity class for a group of police officers, mostly White, in a northern Ohio city. All was going well until he said, “Let’s talk about ‘Black Lives Matter.” He said the room exploded.
The officers were offended that he would bring up the hated term. They began to shout out, “Blue Lives Matter,” and offered their belief that the Black Lives... [Read more of this review]
Dem. Shirley Chisholm and the Fight for Equal Rights for All Women.
(Akiit.com) With a woman heading the ticket of the Democratic Party, it may be challenging for us to remember that women have had the right to vote for less than a century (and Black folks less that). But the 19th Amendment that gave women the right to vote was ratified on August 18, 1920, just 96 years ago. At Congresswoman Bella Abzug’s (D-N.Y.) insistence Congress designated August 26 as Women’s... [Read more of this review]
