Think outside the box

In reference to the column by Walter Williams talking about Kanye West being a problem for the Democratic Party, I admire Kanye West for standing tall and speaking his heart. I don't think most people, if polled, would agree that they like change.

If your friends told you that you could do certain things on a job and it would be OK even though your heart told you otherwise, you would be left with the question, do I think for myself or do I let my friends’ influence make the call for me?

I think young people are influenced by their peers more than their parents. It’s hard to be on a college campus and be outspoken as a conservative because the media and college professors have literally brainwashed America to believe its the Democratic way or the highway. If I knew a proven natural cure for cancer (they are numerous), but you had listened to a doctor's detailed advice to proceed with chemo and radiation that kills your good cells along with the bad, nine times out of 10 you’d side with the doctor.

Why? Because he's got the degree. Know what else he's got? The threat of the medical community. If he were to push natural cures, he'd probably be axed. 

This is the same way with politics. We're being indoctrinated into believing that the Democratic Party can deliver black America from its poverty and social assistance programs. Where is that happening? Where has it ever happened?

It hasn't and it won't as long as your vote is ringing up in November. It is a merry-go-round fueled by the lies and deception forced fed from generation to generation. For black America to pull itself up to where it believes it belongs, it takes thinking outside the box.

My spiritual director once told me if your God image is no longer helpful to you, get a new one. I was raised Catholic and loved the church. When I went to college in the 1970s my Catholic education did not prepare me for the realities of history.

When I learned of the church’s complicity in…

Recently the Greenville Advocacy Team of the Friends Committee on National Legislation (FCNL) met at Congressman G.K. Butterfield's Wilson office for a conference call with his legislative director in D.C., Kyle Parker. Also on this call was the FCNL team from Durham. The purpose of this call was…

I read with considerable interest the Associate Press story by Lindsey Tanner headlined “Deaths from falls …,” on Sunday, June 9, page B2.

In addition to the suggestions she offers, we may also want to consider learning to fall and to practice falling, which in fact are…

Recent flash flooding of downtown vehicles and businesses is, unfortunately, not the first nor last flooding threat to our safety, quality of life and economic development. Fortunately, downtown flooding threats will be alleviated by the massive Town Creek Culvert Project now underway and put in…

I believe, in general, Republican legislators in the state and federal government don't give a darn about the well being of the people. They have recently reduced the regulations on air and water quality, saying that they are too restrictive, and that reducing them is “good enough.”…

The anti-God, anti-American Democrat party is presently working to get back into national power by any means necessary.

Democrats have always been the party of slavery and now they coddle the communist, socialist, Marxist and the Muslims. Put all of the above groups together and you have a force…

In regard to the deceptively and antagonistically titled letter, “Image of GPD defies reality” (Public Forum, June 9), I offer the following:

There are many definitions and uses for the word “piece.” In music, literature, art, drama, dinnerware, pottery, games and a whole…

When I was pregnant with my youngest son, Elias, I was told at 16 weeks that if I continued my pregnancy, I was risking my own death and leaving my sons and husband without me. “If it comes down to it,” my care team asked, “Do you want us to save you or your unborn child?…

Good health is a requirement for all of us. When someone is sick, they can’t work, learn or be a fully engaged in the community.

Unfortunately, too many of our neighbors don’t have the health insurance they need to stay healthy. Approximately 6,577 people in Pitt County alone have no…
