(Akiit.com) “Every man is our brother, and every man’s burden is our own. Where poverty exists, all are poorer. Where hate flourishes, all are corrupted. Where injustice reins, all are unequal.” – Whitney M. Young The Main Street Marshall Plan, the National Urban League’s comprehensive blueprint for addressing lack of opportunity and economic inequality in America’s urban communities,... [Read more of this review]


Movie Review; Solo – A Star Wars Story. Movie Review; Solo – A Star Wars Story.

(Akiit.com) Two things hit you over the head once this 2hr 15m Star Wars edition finishes: 1.) It’s cool that it coyly pulls together characters, in their younger selves, that will know each other in the future. 2.) Given so much goodwill and creative capital, why did the filmmakers squander the moment with a weak script, dull direction and dreary visuals.  The characters may pull the lever for... [Read more of this review]


National Foster Care Month; Protecting The Black Community. National Foster Care Month; Protecting The Black Community.

(Akiit.com) In the late 1980s and early 1990s, our community was under a full-fledged attack. Crack was in our streets, it was in our schools, it was in our parks, it was in our playgrounds, and for some, it was in our homes. The epidemic wasn’t just affecting one part of the community; this impacted the entire community, leaving sons without fathers, daughters without mothers, and parents, ultimately,... [Read more of this review]


Guns, More Guns In School… Guns, More Guns In School…

(Akiit.com) Following the horrific and truly heartbreaking mass shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas last Friday, it is no surprise that gun control advocates and the political left have once again mobilized to advance increased gun control measures. Sadly, this phenomenon is in itself almost a big yawn, in that we’ve heard the tired, misguided rhetoric too many times. Some people would argue... [Read more of this review]


NFL & New Anthem Guidelines Shall Solve Nothing. NFL & New Anthem Guidelines Shall Solve Nothing.

(Akiit.com) We’re getting close to the time of year when I usually start to anticipate football. The draft is over, training camps are just a couple of months away, and the NHL and NBA postseasons are soon to conclude, leaving only mid-season baseball to fill my sports appetite. Here in North Texas, that means following the generally mediocre Texas Rangers. So, I should be getting pretty stoked... [Read more of this review]


MS-13 Gangs Terrorize Black Californians. MS-13 Gangs Terrorize Black Californians.

(Akiit.com) President Donald Trump doubled down on calling members of a notorious street gang “animals.” Good for him for not backing down and for shining a light on an outrageous phenomenon, especially in Southern California: Latino gangs that target blacks, whether or not they belong to gangs, for death. Trump, during a roundtable discussion last week with state and local officials from... [Read more of this review]

(Akiit.com) Donald Trump is now deep into trade negotiations with China and NAFTA 2.0 negotiations with Canada and Mexico. We are strong free traders, but we believe that Trump’s plans to negotiate better trade agreements that reduce trade barriers abroad are right on the mark. He also has to make sure those deals fully protect U.S. intellectual property, or what is commonly called know-how. American... [Read more of this review]


The Republican’s Fear Factor. The Republican’s Fear Factor.

(Akiit.com) When President Franklin D. Roosevelt famously said, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself,” he could not have foreseen today’s Republican Party. A bill authored by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) that would require the federal government to balance the budget each year was soundly defeated last week in the Senate. Even Paul admitted he thought the bill had no chance, but... [Read more of this review]

(Akiit.com) The latest school shooting in Santa Fe, Texas brings out the same tired rhetoric from the left. They’re blaming guns, the NRA, and President Trump. What the left isn’t doing, however, is offering new and pragmatic solutions. Legislators can’t pass up opportunities to score political points in the aftermath of tragedies, especially mass shootings. They flaunt their sensitivity, a... [Read more of this review]


Roe v. Wade Coming To An End? Roe v. Wade Coming To An End?

(Akiit.com) Just a few weeks ago, Iowa passed the most restrictive abortion ban in the nation since Roe v. Wade. Although it does contain several exceptions, the law generally bars doctors from performing abortions after the baby’s heartbeat can be detected, which is usually around six weeks. If you’re thinking that this law directly conflicts with Roe v. Wade and subsequent Supreme Court decisions... [Read more of this review]


The East Coast Black Age of Comics Convention. The East Coast Black Age of Comics Convention.

(Akiit.com) Comic books have been around in the US since 1933. Superhero comic books as we currently know them came into popularity in this country in 1938 with the introduction of Action Comics and the creation of the Superman character. The so called golden age of comic books from 1930’s to around 1950 did not include people of color as subjects or heroes. During this era Blacks rarely appeared... [Read more of this review]

(Akiit.com) A recent column by a black Republican activist in the Washington Informer included the following: “But to my liberal friends who constantly ask ‘When was America great?’ I simply say that America was great when Lincoln freed the slaves. America was great when we passed the Civil Rights Act of 1964. America was great when we passed the Voting Rights Act of 1965. America was great... [Read more of this review]

(Akiit.com) Republicans and Democrats alike have thrown everything at President Trump but the proverbial kitchen sink. And yet, like “Old Glory,” i.e., the American flag, flying proudly over Fort McHenry as it withstood the relentless assault of enemies committed to robbing American citizens of their freedom and subjugating us to bow before the Throne of England, President Trump soldiers on. I... [Read more of this review]


Film Review; Deadpool 2. Film Review; Deadpool 2.

(Akiit.com) In the pantheon of comic book hero movies, Deadpool set itself apart from the herd. It was ultra-violent, pansexual, hysterical, unapologetically sarcastic, frenetic and broke the 4thwall down with a sledgehammer. The deeply droll and irreverent Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds played the vomit-faced superhero. The script by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick took audiences down a dark alley and... [Read more of this review]


Individualism Can Sometimes Be A Bad Thing. Individualism Can Sometimes Be A Bad Thing.

(Akiit.com) “Now, an army is a team. It lives, eats, sleeps, fights as a team. This individuality stuff is a bunch of crap. The bilious bastards who wrote that stuff about individuality for the Saturday Evening Post don’t know anything more about real battle than they do about fornicating.” (Gen. George S. Patton’s Address to the 3rd Army, as rendered by George C. Scott in the movie “Patton”... [Read more of this review]
