No Ma’am, President-elect Donald Trump Does Not Deserve a Chance.
(Akiit.com) I was sitting at a Starbucks trying to mind my own business and right next to me two individuals were discussing the aftermath of the November 8th presidential elections. At one point, they began discussing the protests that have spontaneously spread across the United States in the aftermath of Donald Trump’s so-called victory.
I listened carefully when I heard them both express their... [Read more of this review]

(Akiit.com) “Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”— George Santayana
It is imperative we study and learn our history. History is the prologue to the present. We live in volatile times.

Why Hillary Clinton is Right to Back a Recount, But…..
(Akiit.com) Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is right to back a vote recount in the three states, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania that gave Donald Trump the White House. But there’s a big but after that. First, here’s why she’s right to support the recount and how it will work. She conceded too quickly on Election Night. Yes, President Obama reportedly urged her to concede... [Read more of this review]
When You Have Something Hard to Say, But You Just Can’t Say It.
(Akiit.com) There’s no question about it. The most successful people may not always have the most talent, the highest test scores or an Ivy League degree, but they do have a way with words. They speak differently – to others, to themselves, even in how they communicate through their appearance. And one of the best skills they master is the art of navigating a difficult conversation.

San Francisco 49ers Colin Kaepernick Sparks a Not-So-Silent Revolution.
(Akiit.com) A bold but simple gesture by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has catapulted him into the public spotlight for something other than his athletic prowess, stoking what some describe as controversy while generating support and considerable anger in some corners.
His decision to sit and then kneel during the national anthem earlier this year, and his reasons for doing so, has... [Read more of this review]

(Akiit.com) You’re excited, you’ve done your time and are trying to get your life on track by applying for a life changing job.

Black America – Politicians will not SAVE you!
(Akiit.com) Donald Trump’s surprise win has millions of Americans, many of whom are black, in a tizzy. Many, such as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, are writing about what it means to be black during a Trump administration even though Trump’s presidency has yet to begin. My argument has always been that the political arena is largely irrelevant to the interests of ordinary black people.
Much of the 1960s... [Read more of this review]
President-elect Donald Trump’s ’60 Minutes’ interview.
(Akiit.com) While watching the third presidential debate, I found myself screaming at Donald Trump when he addressed Chris Wallace’s questions regarding his Supreme Court appointments.
Donald Trump, I assumed, fell into the litmus test trap when he answered Wallace’s first question on gun rights. Trump said, “We are going to appoint justices that will feel very strongly about the Second Amendment.”

Donald Trump Won, But what’s next?
(Akiit.com) Just because “our guy” won, Economics 101 hasn’t been repealed.
Donald Trump is still a populist, not a fiscal conservative or a states’ rights federalist.
Trump’s waffling on minimum wage is as disturbing as him saying, as he did on “60 Minutes,” that we should keep “the strongest assets” of Obamacare — coverage for pre-existing... [Read more of this review]

The American Election and the Stock Market, a Roiled Dollar.
(Akiit.com) Some are calling it the “Trump Effect“; a scenario that has been predicted to cause a huge shift in the stock world. The market was initially trapped in the midst of two large opposing forces; Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump. But these two seem to be closing the gap that has existed between them for a while, forcing investors to move into safer ventures... [Read more of this review]
Open Letter To Black Voters…
(Akiit.com) I am pleading with the African-American community to go to the polls in order to defeat Trump and save this country from internal chaos and international disgrace.
To my amazement, newscasts report that Trump could squeak into becoming president due to the lack of interest in voting by African-Americans.
Know this: Trump only became a candidate to avenge himself on the humorous drubbing... [Read more of this review]
Sports Unite People, Politics Divide.
(Akiit.com) This election season has lasted far longer than any I can remember. Even for professional politicians, the constant emotional theater of controversy, fear and anger during the election has grown quite wearying. Undoubtedly, many Americans feel the same way – weary of the constant fighting and media natter and yearning for a neutral ground where we can forget about our trouble for a while...
