I disagree with putting Maya Angelou on U.S. coins, the same as I disagreed about putting Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill. The same country that enslaved us is now putting us on their currency? What a joke. Truly honoring and acknowledging wrongs committed against Black men and women will be returning our stolen wealth! Bump these symbolic, do-nothing gestures. The powers that be need to put their money where their mouth is — reparations, period.

One Nation?

The cover of last week’s Washington Informer was breathtaking. It’s true what they say that a picture is worth a thousand words, and a cracked American flag certainly tells it all about the condition of our country.
