The cost of ignoring diversity in your business is greater than you think. The cost of ignoring diversity in your business is greater than you think.

(Akiit.com) We have some news for you: multicultural marketing isn’t niche marketing, it is mainstream marketing. The multicultural segment is the fastest growing of the U.S. population. They are 120 million strong and growing by 2.3 million per year. Hispanics, African-Americans, Asian-Americans, and all other diverse segments are the growth engine of the future. In fact, the Census projects they... [Read more of this review]


Sistas, We’re Better Than That! Sistas, We’re Better Than That!

(Akiit.com) I can’t remember a time in my adult life when I wasn’t working on justice issues on behalf of people in my community. I’ve worked for the benefit of women who shared my views and some who, but it’s rare that I’m embarrassed about something women are doing. Lately, I’ve taken the time to view a lot of videos on various rappers, and tried to give them the benefit of the doubt.... [Read more of this review]


Democrats — Trump Dilemma: Impeach, Imprison — Or Bluff? Democrats — Trump Dilemma: Impeach, Imprison — Or Bluff?

(Akiit.com) Is there any doubt that many Democrats agree with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi when she says she wants to see President Trump “in prison”? After the Mueller report, House Democrats seem to believe almost unanimously that the president is guilty of obstruction of justice. Their increasingly heated internal debate is whether to impeach Trump now or press for his incarceration after... [Read more of this review]


Praying (or Not) For Our President Donald Trump. Praying (or Not) For Our President Donald Trump.

(Akiit.com) Only the most partisan person would begrudge prayers for the president of the United States, but a recent visit by President Trump to the mega McLean Bible Church in Virginia has rubbed some congregants the wrong way. The White House informed the church with only a few minutes notice that the president would be coming to the service after finishing a round of golf at a nearby course. It... [Read more of this review]


Money, Money, Money… Money, Money, Money…

(Akiit.com) Look at the dollar bills in your wallet. They say they are “legal tender for all debts.” But are they? What makes them valuable? What makes them worth anything? Each bill says, “In God We Trust.” But God won’t guarantee their value. The $20 bill depicts the White House. Congress is on $50s. But neither guarantees the value of our dollars. I wouldn’t trust... [Read more of this review]

Those Right-Wing Disrupters. Those Right-Wing Disrupters.

(Akiit.com) Recently, I saw two separate stories about right-wing disrupters. In one case, a well-known bookstore in the Washington, DC area, “Politics & Prose,” was visited by right-wing disrupters during a book event focused on “whiteness.” In another case, a discussion of race and politics in the Dominican Republic was disrupted by alleged Dominican fascists who are allies of the grandson... [Read more of this review]


Which is Worse? College Corruption or Admissions SCAM? Which is Worse? College Corruption or Admissions SCAM?

(Akiit.com) Last week’s column discussed the highly publicized university corruption scheme wherein wealthy parents bought admission at prestigious universities for their children. That is dishonest and gives an unfair advantage to those young people but won’t destroy the missions of the universities. There is little or no attention given by the mainstream media to the true cancer eating away at... [Read more of this review]


The Democrats Unhinged Over Alabama’s Abortion Bill. The Democrats Unhinged Over Alabama’s Abortion Bill.

(Akiit.com) Alabama’s mostly Republican lawmakers and governor passed a strong abortion ban this week, and liberals are fit to be tied. “Today, I signed into law the Alabama Human Life Protection Act, a bill that was approved by overwhelming majorities in both chambers of the legislature,” said Gov. Kay Ivey. “To the bill’s many supporters, this legislation stands as a... [Read more of this review]


Defense Spending: On the Rise, But Not Really Enough. Defense Spending: On the Rise, But Not Really Enough.

(Akiit.com) We have a good news-bad news situation on our hands when it comes to defense spending. The good news is, it’s heading in the right direction: up. The bad news is, it remains too low to fix the spending holiday that afflicted our military for years — a failure to fund that has seriously compromised our readiness levels. Budget numbers released by Democrats, who control the House of Representatives,... [Read more of this review]


Really, War With Iran? Really, War With Iran?

(Akiit.com) Speaking on state TV of the prospect of a war in the Gulf, Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei seemed to dismiss the idea. “There won’t be any war. … We don’t seek a war, and (the Americans) don’t either. They know it’s not in their interests.” The ayatollah’s analysis — a war is in neither nation’s interest —... [Read more of this review]


PETA, PETA Is Beyond Parody. PETA, PETA Is Beyond Parody.

(Akiit.com) Let me just say from the start that I love animals, and I’m not just talking about the delicious ones. I drive my wife a little nuts by feeding the birds, squirrels, deer, rabbits, and pretty much anything else I know that wanders through our yard. But our kids love watching them and so do I. Plus, we have a bunch on the inside of the house, too. That being said, I have a lot of issues... [Read more of this review]


Don’t Let Mark Zuckerberg Kill Free Speech. Don’t Let Mark Zuckerberg Kill Free Speech.

(Akiit.com) This week, representatives from Facebook, Google and Twitter will join with European leaders and the prime minister of New Zealand to launch a chilling proposal to curb free speech across the internet. Americans should be alarmed. Internet freedom is being extinguished fast in Europe. How long will it survive in the U.S.? Social media titans such as Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg have more... [Read more of this review]

(Akiit.com) Elizabeth Warren had some pretty strong statements to make about Fox News on Tuesday when she explained she wouldn’t be appearing in any town halls hosted by the popular news organization. “I love town halls. I’ve done more than 70 since January, and I’m glad to have a television audience be a part of them. Fox News has invited me to do a town hall, but I’m turning them down—here’s... [Read more of this review]

(Akiit.com) The Democratic Republic of Congo’s daily hell of poverty, assorted wars, ethnic antagonism, frail government institutions, porous borders, cultural superstitions, meddling neighbors and corrupt elites provide a one-stop-shop example of the wicked conditions afflicting the globe’s less-developed regions, sub-Saharan Africa in particular.
