Film Review: Comedian Kevin Hart Kills in New Stand-up “What Now?”
(Akiit.com) Has success spoiled Kevin Hart? Forbes Magazine lists him as 2016’s highest paid comedian with an annual income of $87.5 million, from June 1, 2015, to June 1, 2016. Unlike many of his cohorts (Jerry Seinfeld, etc.) Hart makes lots of his income from live performances in large stadiums where he can earn $1 million a pop. So, it’s fitting that his latest live concert film was shot outdoors... [Read more of this review]
2016: The Cost of Living.
(Akiit.com) Since our political discussions are now X-Rated, so much so that we must ask the children to leave the room before we watch the news, the speeches, and the debates, we need to add another concern to the X-Rated list: Social Security. Silly me, that pales in comparison to what’s really important, doesn’t it?
Hillary’s emails, Bill and Donald’s dalliances and sexual conquests are... [Read more of this review]
Donald Trump Thanks, The Democrats Can Take Back Congress Now.
(Akiit.com) GOP presidential contender Donald Trump has given Democrats something that seemed only the stuff of shop talk, wishful thinking, and even fawn dreams a year ago. That’s a real shot at taking back Congress. First, let’s get the presidential race out of the way. Long before Trump’s campaign came totally discombobulated amidst the sex charge stuff, there was almost no way that he, or... [Read more of this review]
2016: The Most Important Step to Getting Unstuck!
(Akiit.com) Why is it that we ignore the truth? Or even hide from it? You had an inkling that the person wasn’t who they appeared to be, but you got involved anyway – now you feel stuck trying to get out of the relationship. You knew instinctively it was not time to buy that thing you just knew you had to have, but you wanted it, so you got it. Now, you’re stuck with the bill, and... [Read more of this review]
Ole Africans vs. African-Americans – A White Supremacist Success.
(Akiit.com) I had a recent conversation with a young, intelligent, hardworking African-American during which he expressed deep hostility towards Africans. When asked why he felt that way, he told me of two incidents that occurred when he dated a young African woman from Nigeria and another from Ethiopia.
The Nigerian’s father exploded when she brought the young brother to her home. He demanded that... [Read more of this review]
2016, Advancing Diversity In Law Enforcement.
(Akiit.com) “Recommendation: Law enforcement agencies should strive to create a workforce that contains a broad range of diversity including race, gender, language, life experience, and cultural background to improve understanding and effectiveness in dealing with all communities. During these trying times when African American communities and law enforcement are grappling with a deep disconnect... [Read more of this review]
Bruce Springsteen and Soros and Blacks – Oh, My!
(Akiit.com) In a recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine, marginally talented loudmouth rock icon Bruce Springsteen excoriated Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, calling him a “moron” and accusing Trump of offering “simple answers to very complex problems.”
Statements like this in the context of addressing political issues always make me laugh, because this convention is not... [Read more of this review]
Why San Fran 49ers Colin Kaepernick Is A Fraud.
(Akiit.com) I would like to remind you the members of The Daily Rant community why Colin Kaepernick and those who are now monkeying his disgraceful display of disrespect to the land you and I love. I wrote the following syndicated article December 13, 2005. I repost it for you today, to confront Kaepernick, et al, in their duplicitous ignorance. If these historically illiterate and morally opprobrious,... [Read more of this review]
Donald Trump & Media’s outrage of such a gentle man.
(Akiit.com) Approximately every other week since he announced has been called “Trump’s worst week yet!”
– “In Trump We Trust: E Pluribus Awesome!”
Reviewing the state of the presidential race, I see that very little has changed for the past year. Every few weeks, the media roll out a new Trump “scandal” that has already been thoroughly covered, day in, day out, for the last 15 months.
In... [Read more of this review]
President Barack Obama & Shaming Black Voters.
(Akiit.com) Now that the dust has settled around President Obama’s comments at the Congressional Black Caucus Banquet, let me give you my take on the subject. In 2010, immediately following the midterm elections, in some instances, Black folks were blamed for the “Shellacking” as Barack Obama put it, of Democrat candidates. Again in 2014, the rancor directed at Blacks for failing to vote was... [Read more of this review]
South Africa, USA, Discrimination and Segregation.
(Akiit.com) I was invited, along with several other American professors, to deliver lectures at South Africa’s University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg in 1979. Pieter Willem Botha was the prime minister, and apartheid, though becoming a bit relaxed, was the law of the land. Under apartheid, intermarriage between blacks, coloureds and Indians on the one hand and whites was prohibited.... [Read more of this review]
Dem. Hillary Clinton Won on Nonsense, Rep. Donald Trump Won on Substance.
(Akiit.com) The overwhelming media consensus regarding the first presidential debate — Donald Trump vs. Hillary Clinton and Lester Holt — is that Clinton won.
If she did win it was because Trump, after a strong opening 30 minutes, allowed himself to get baited into emotional and tendentious self-defense.
And because the media have decided to focus on the tendentious, such as the utterly... [Read more of this review]
When It Comes to Black GOP’s, There Is No Surrogate for Experience.
(Akiit.com) “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us…”

Cops & Standards…
(Akiit.com) In quick succession, an El Cajon police officer gunned down an alleged mentally challenged man, a Tulsa police officer gunned down a distressed motorist, a Charlotte, North Carolina officer gunned down an allegedly combative suspect, Pasadena, California police officers violently restrained a distressed man who allegedly became combative and he died, and a Los Angeles police officer killed...

Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton – Alittle Advice for Second Debate.
(Akiit.com) Donald Trump scored a gentleman’s “C” in his first debate with Hillary Clinton. She was programmed, like one of those androids from the film “Westworld,” spewing out well-rehearsed sound bites, smiling (sometimes condescendingly), and even tossing in a few wiggles. It was all designed to make her look warm and wonderful.
As the saying goes, if you can fake... [Read more of this review]
