BYH, Attorney General Sessions, if you are going to tout the bible, I sure wish you would read Leviticus 19:33....

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.

Spike Lee said “do the right thing,” but often kids don’t. They get in trouble. It happens when their self-actualization interests intersect with the rules in families and schools and laws in society.

The key is when a child makes a bad choice, there’s a responsible adult to…

It seems that both the vice president and the attorney general have misread the Bible when they use it to support President Trump's policy of taking children away from parents of immigrant parents as they reach the U.S. border.

Mathew 19:14 (KJV) reads, "And Jesus said, Suffer little children, and…

“What would [a coherent national policy that take’s the country’s war’s seriously] look like? It would probably look like rescinding the open-ended Authorization for the Use of Military Force and making the president regularly go before Congress to explain where and why he…

Outrageous!

There is no other way to describe the behavior of the Republicans who totally control the N.C. Legislature and whose leadership assembled a small group of Republicans to craft the 2018-19 state budget in secret and to package said budget in such a manner that circumnavigated entirely…

We live in a want-based society. As such, we have the opportunity to buy motorcycles, airplanes, 700 horsepower Corvette convertibles and speed boats. And we have the right to purchase firearms if we’re law abiding. Which brings me to Father’s day.

I was looking through the pages of the…

My father and I attended the recent NCAA Baseball Regional in Greenville. We would like to thank the folks of Greenville for the warm welcome and friendly treatment. I was welcomed to Greenville by at least six different people. Everyone — the staff inside the ballpark, the parking lot staff,…
