Colin Kaepernick & Charlottesville; My Thoughts. Colin Kaepernick & Charlottesville; My Thoughts.

(Akiit.com) I rarely write about sports because while it is mostly viewed as a form of recreation and entertainment at its core it reflects the values and consciousness of our society and folks don’t like to be reminded of that. Some say sports is a form of tribalism a vicarious way for males (and increasingly females) to engage in a form of ritualized combat, group identity and belonging. In... [Read more of this review]


Twitter And Journalism Intertwined. Twitter And Journalism Intertwined.

(Akiit.com) For years now the “gods” of style when it comes to the written word have encouraged educated people to be obsessed with simplicity in speech and writing. They worship at the altar of writers like Ernest Hemingway and Jack London, idols of the 20th century’s obsession with what became the “journalistic style” of writing. The “Twitter culture” epitomizes the demands of this... [Read more of this review]


GOP Can Keep Winning. GOP Can Keep Winning.

(Akiit.com) I’m no saint, nor have I ever professed to be. There are too many people currently living who could give testimony to the contrary should I ever decide to, so I won’t here. With that out of the way (it’ll make more sense later in the piece), there is an area on the issue of this country’s drug laws where Republicans could both do the right thing and win some support. Let’s be... [Read more of this review]

Welcoming Immigrants Keeps The United States Of America Great. Welcoming Immigrants Keeps The United States Of America Great.

(Akiit.com) President Donald Trump was elected on his pledge to make America great again. Yet, for all of his rhetoric, he seems to have forgotten the men and women, from every corner of the globe, who have worked so hard to build the great country we see today. President Trump leads a nation of immigrants, yet part of his plan involves suspending our country’s refugee program and barring immigrants... [Read more of this review]


Six Signs You Have an Unhealthy Sense of Responsibility. Six Signs You Have an Unhealthy Sense of Responsibility.

But what happens when you don’t just take responsibility for your tasks, but for other people’s as well? It’s called over-responsibility, and it just might... [Read more of this review]


Donald Trump’s Lies!! Donald Trump’s Lies!!

(Akiit.com) I’m a product of the “Southern Experience.” Many of my views are shaped by the “mother wit” and logic learned growing up there. There’s something unique to the down-to-Earth “common sense” of the “Old Folks” as they reckoned with and evaluated their circumstance and environment. One of the frequently repeated axioms I distinctly remember goes like this: “If you lie,... [Read more of this review]

Why O.J.  Simpson Should Be Freed—And Why It Matters. Why O.J. Simpson Should Be Freed—And Why It Matters.

(Akiit.com) O.J. Simpson won’t go away. I posed the question on my Facebook page “Should O.J. be paroled? It drew an avalanche of responses. Even while respondents hotly protested they didn’t care, they still debated, raged, and fumed on the page about him. He still touches a sore nerve. There is, and never will be, any proof that Simpson is really serving a 9 to 33- year sentence, not for robbery,... [Read more of this review]

It was... [Read more of this review]


Slavery In Ancient Times. Slavery In Ancient Times.

(Akiit.com) Too many people believe that slavery is a “peculiar institution.” That’s what Kenneth Stampp called slavery in his book, “Peculiar Institution: Slavery in the Ante-Bellum South.” But slavery is by no means peculiar, odd or unusual.
