Dr. Harry L. Williams Named President & CEO of Thurgood Marshall College Fund. Dr. Harry L. Williams Named President & CEO of Thurgood Marshall College Fund.

(Akiit.com) If you are like me, watching the Summer Olympics has always been a family affair. One of my favorite competitions to watch was track and field. Seeing legends like Florence Griffith Joyner and Carl Lewis made us so proud as they seemed to effortlessly run around that track, and win the gold medals. The relay race was always thrilling because, while each individual runner had run their... [Read more of this review]


Donald Trump Trick Bag – Stacking The Courts. Donald Trump Trick Bag – Stacking The Courts.

(Akiit.com) Two people reported to work at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau on November 27, both expecting to lead the bureau.

Simultaneously, 45 appointed Mick Mulvaney, head of the... [Read more of this review]


Movie Review; Mudbound. Movie Review; Mudbound.

(Akiit.com) Writer/director Dee Rees’ 2011 feature film debut Pariah was a depressing but touching look at black lesbian life. This follow-up film is no less weighty. The key difference is the budget ($10M) for this film is bigger and it is used wisely on a top-notch tech crew and fine actors that elevate this southern WWII-era epic. With the cast and crew as her clay, Rees molds all the right elements... [Read more of this review]


Movie Review; Quest. Movie Review; Quest.

(Akiit.com) They’re everyday saints. The Raineys are a loving family and community activists. They live in northern Philadelphia, an inner-city neighborhood that’s an archetype for lots of struggling, poverty-level American communities. Yet somehow, this endearing clan remains positive through the most challenging moments. Their resilience and family bond are the heart of this very moving documentary. Director... [Read more of this review]


Why I Reached Out To Music Mogul Russell Simmons. Why I Reached Out To Music Mogul Russell Simmons.

(Akiit.com) One week before screenwriter Jenny Lumet gave her very graphic account in the Hollywood Reporter of her allegation that music and TV producer mogul Russell Simmons sexually assaulted her, I had reached out to Simmons. We have the same interest ? no, passion ? in and for yoga. I’ve been a practitioner of it for several years. Simmons has been a virtual one-man crusader for yoga, spreading... [Read more of this review]


Donald Trump Is Winning. Donald Trump Is Winning.

(Akiit.com) This is one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to write and admit: Trump is winning. In the brief space of a week, he won a brief court fight to shove Mick Mulvaney to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Mulvaney wasted no time in unhinging a spate of consumer protection rulings, regulations, and personnel hires made during the Obama years. His SCOTUS pick, Neil Gorsuch,... [Read more of this review]


Some Americans Are Not Wanted Now. Some Americans Are Not Wanted Now.

(Akiit.com) I am the type of American they want to go away. I get along with cops, soldiers, preppers and country boys — the sort of guys who know how to shoot, know how to take care of themselves and would watch your back in a fight if it came to that. I don’t much like the government, but I do like small town government better than government in D.C. If someone has to be in charge, better... [Read more of this review]


Liberals Hate Being Wrong. Liberals Hate Being Wrong.

(Akiit.com) Aside from testosterone, the military, small businesses, the private sector, attractive women, private property, happily married heterosexuals, and people who refuse to conform to their Utopian-or-else drum circle mentality, there few thingsliberals hate more than being held to the rules they’ve set for others. When it happens, they generally react the same way – to scream like a teenage... [Read more of this review]


A Year Later, What Has Donald Trump Accomplished? A Year Later, What Has Donald Trump Accomplished?

(Akiit.com) In a few days it will be a year since Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election. Though I long supported many of the policies he eventually claimed as his own during his campaign, I was not one of the Trumpeters, confidently proclaiming that he was the changed man, chosen of God to “make America great again.” His life’s record, and his personally uncivil campaign “style,”... [Read more of this review]


Ex-Presidents Need To Fade Away. Ex-Presidents Need To Fade Away.

(Akiit.com) All five living former Presidents recently came together at a benefit concert for victims of this year’s devastating hurricanes. A month earlier, they broadcast an appeal for Americans to donate for hurricane relief efforts. Former President Jimmy Carter praised the generosity of Americans: “Across this great country, Americans have answered the call.” So did former President... [Read more of this review]


Not All News are Fake News: The Future of Elections. Not All News are Fake News: The Future of Elections.

(Akiit.com) It’s safe to say that technology has had a massive impact on our society. We check our phones as soon as we wake up in the morning, tell our loved ones goodnight over video calls before going to bed, and to keep à jour with everything that is happening in the world. Social media was around before the 2016-election, though, yet it rose to a level of prominence during both the Trump campaign... [Read more of this review]


Financial Industry Winning While Consumers Stay Losing. Financial Industry Winning While Consumers Stay Losing.

(Akiit.com) In the dead of night on October 24, Vice President Mike Pence struck a blow against consumers, further empowering the banks and financial institutions that he is beholden to.  He is, no doubt, following the direction of 45, who never met an Obama initiative that he didn’t want to overturn, or an Obama program that he didn’t want to abolish.             What happened? ... [Read more of this review]

(Akiit.com) There is no debate about the continuing historic importance and strategic mission and purpose of the nation’s 120-plus Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). During the 2017 homecoming festivities that are now occurring on HBCU campuses across the nation, I believe it is also important to salute and recognize the companies that financially contribute to the success of... [Read more of this review]


Donald Trump Makes Us All Miss Mr. Bush, and Obama. Donald Trump Makes Us All Miss Mr. Bush, and Obama.

(Akiit.com) I never thought I would miss our 43d President, George W. Bush. And I’ve never much thought of him as a great, or even good, speaker. But the speech he gave at a conference convened by the George W. Bush Institute was simply eloquent, excellent, thoughtful, and compelling. After keeping a low profile for the past eight years, he spoke up to decry the fact that “bigotry seems emboldened”.... [Read more of this review]


Taxing Situation in 2017. Taxing Situation in 2017.

(Akiit.com) Federal income tax was first introduced under the Revenue Act of 1861 to help defray war costs. Congress repealed the tax in 1871 when the need for government revenue declined, only to restore it in 1894 as part of the Wilson-Gorman Tariff Act. The public policy debate surrounding the constitutionality of income tax has been going on ever since. Given the government’s inventive ways... [Read more of this review]
