Don’t Call It A Comeback: Obama Leads America To Another Victory

This past Sunday the world witnessed one of the greatest comebacks ever in the history of professional football. I know I have the tendency to hyperbolize athletic events, but this was one for the ages. In just under 8 minutes Michael Vick sliced and diced the New York Giants defense to lead the Philadelphia Eagles […]

Michael Vick & The Constitutionality of Obamacare

Just 3 years ago, life seemed to be over for Michael Vick. The first round draft pick who dazzled crowds with his blazing speed and cannon arm seemingly reached the nadir of his life. When defensive ends blitzed Vick, his agility and uncanny vision usually helped him evade tackles and pick up huge chunks of […]

Why Sarah Palin Is The Political Version Of Soulja Boy

To say the meteoric rise of Sarah Palin in the political world has been unexpected would be an understatement. Less than 10 years ago Palin was the Mayor of a small town in Alaska with a population of barely over 10,000 people. Before she was making a living off of political gaffes, she was winning […]

Kickin’ It Old School: The Roots Of “Sneaker Head” Culture

Ever since Spike Lee and Michael Jordan graced my television screen and told me to “just do it” back in the early 90’s, I’ve been following sneaker culture. As a youngster I can vividly remember having verbal spats with my fellow peers at lunchtime about whether the Bo Jackson Nike Air Trainers made you run […]

Can A Lame Duck Give Birth To An American D.R.E.A.M.?

The struggle for immigration reform in the United States has been a long, tumultuous battle that has been marked by legislative deadlock and caustic rhetorical skirmishes. This salient issue is polarizing for a plethora of reasons, much of which deals directly with politics. The sparring that has taken place on the congressional floor is just […]

Rapperticians: Rhymefest’s Run For Office

Rappers have been making political messages ever since DJ Kool Herc had the “Boogie Down Bronx” going crazy in the late 70’s. As hip-hop scholar Bakari Kitwana notes in his book Hip Hop Generation “[people born in the hip-hop generation]worldview has been shaped by globalization, legalized de-segregation, public policy in the criminal justice system that […]

Let’s Have A Toast To #RealTalk: Why Kanye Is Right.

Why should I waste this blog space to talk about a pretentious, insecure, scumbag who pats himself on the back so much that his shirts have handprints? Why should I defend the “jerk” as President Obama would call it, that stole a poor innocent girl’s spotlight on national television? Why should I go to bat […]

Midterms, Free Snicker Bars, and Democracy.

Every Sunday morning after I thank the Big man above for waking me up I usually roll out of bed and turn on the Sunday political talk shows. Like a caffeine addict, I usually need my political fix around 9 am.  I’m not much of a coffee drinker, but if I was I would probably […]

Don’t Whip Your Vote Back And Forth: The Case For Alexi Giannoulias

I did not intend to write a political blog this week. After watching Kanye West’s Runaway short film I was fully intent on blogging about the creative genius of the Louie Vuitton Don. I watched the 34-minute film three times, and meticulously took notes on the subliminal messages evoked by the ballerinas in the all […]

Is That A Whale Or A Congressional District?

As a youngster I always ate more than my share- literally. Growing up in a traditional Southern Black household, my diet would have probably brought Michelle Obama to tears. Collard greens, macaroni and cheese, turkey wings, neckbones, black eyed peas, and peach cobbler were frequently on my dinner table (I should probably stop listing foods […]
