Recovery Or Crisis?

Tweet ( According to MasterCard’s spending reports, consumers spent more than 10 percent more than they did in 2019 before the COVID pandemic even hit.

Tweet ( The unpredictability of COVID-19 shocked the entire world. In the United States, we were a country already divided due to politics and decades of cultural conflicts.

Tweet ( When running against Donald Trump for president, Joe Biden often made the now-ironic charge that any president who has allowed so many deaths from COVID-19 should never be in the White House. Today, there are more deaths from COVID under Biden than under Trump — and that is even with the vaccine. But it isn’t […]

White People Christmas Just Around The Corner And Black People Are Waiting With Open Arms.

Tweet ( Well, Merry Christmas to all my fellow African Americans who are happy to celebrate the white people Christmas and spent all your money and little wealth in stores, businesses and merchandise that are owned and produced by racist people who neither hire, employee, invest in the black community and neither promote black generational […]
