This is a history lesson worth learning. A political shero worth knowing. Some viewers will wish Chisolm’s legacy was kept alive in a more unique and distinguished way. While some will be grateful for any introduction to her groundbreaking achievements.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s Hypocrisy.

The bottom line is he doesn’t really care about any specific vaping product or kids, he’s just using this argument to push regulators into taking a hard line on the product and expand the federal government’s power into somewhere new. And if he really cared about health, he wouldn’t be going after the most successful stop-smoking aid out there while advocating for filter-less smoke from pot. As a former smoker who quit with the help of vaping (who then quit that, by the way), the idea that Chuck Schumer has made the health care of kids a priority is laughable when you look at his actions to promote marijuana.

Politician Dianne Feinstein: Grit And Grace.

Many of us who stand with Barbara Lee chafe at Governor Gavin Newsome’s failure to appoint Congresswoman Lee. Still, we all have high hopes and wish much success for Laphonza Butler and his selection.   Governor Newsome’s appointment checks his box to appoint a Black woman to the next open seat in the Senate. His refusal to hear the many who asked him to appoint Congresswoman Lee will have ramifications in the long run. What might Dianne Feinstein have done had she been governor? Food for thought.

Film Review; Fast X.

It’s a formula that’s worked for 22 years, ever since The Fast and Furious premiered in 2001. Team up a crew of multicultural drivers and motorcyclists—aka street racers. Give em’ fast cars and bikes and an enemy to fight, then sit back and watch. This new edition follows that successful blueprint, reassembles the base cast and adds a few new characters.

The National Urban League wants to see black businesses and workers participate in the economic opportunity that renewable energy investments are creating. As the eminent threats of climate change continues to loom, we can no longer afford to ignore it. We have an opportunity to realize the clean energy transition in a way that creates a more inclusive and equitable economy, but we need to implement bold and innovative ideas to be part of it.
