I love the picture of Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton with the defaced Confederate statue. That is truly one for the history books!

Cosby’s Saga Not Finished

It’s nice to see that there is still some media covering Bill Cosby’s case. Your reporter Stacy Brown has diligently covered Cosby and his fall from grace very well over the years. I’m personally shocked Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court has agreed to hear his appeal. Thanks for the information.

  1. I read the news article on Mr. Paris Dennard. I was not impressed with his interpretation of how the Trump Administration has done more for Black people than the Obama Administration? Trump maybe Mr. Dennard’s knight in shining armor, but he is not mine. I look at things realistically and do not see any improvement in the Criminal Justice System, where Blacks and other minorities have to live in fear of the police, who are sworn to protect. To me an executive order signed by the President has little weight or substance when reality shows how nothing has changed. Blacks, in all sectors of Government, Business, Medical, and Community are still treated as third class citizens. Funding approved and provided by this administration are lacking, insufficient and done only to say something was done, because of the upcoming election. My vote in November 2020 will be based upon fact, not fiction or half truths. Mr. Dennard needs to go back to the drawing board to find a working strategy.
