Excavating an American

Ode to the Mac Man

One of the funniest comedians I ever heard in my life, Bernie Mac, died this past weekend. He was 50 years old. Overcoming life’s challenges is often not considered funny material. Black life in America is often recalled as sad but true. Bernie Mac had a way of relating our experiences in a way that [...]

E Pluribus Unum: You Say You Want an Evolution?

E Pluribus Unum Flag

Three small words and one very BIG idea: E Pluribus Unum – “out of many, one”. It is easy to say but troublesome to achieve. Our advancement inside the Party in the last four years has brought the Progressive movement to the brink of a broader leadership role. The question is – how will we [...]

The Bloodline Revenge of Mad King George III

In every political campaign, a successful candidate will confront racism, acknowledge economic inequality, and assure voters of all ages that their agendas will be addressed.
