In Chicago’s Bronzeville, residents are repurposing historic buildings and pushing to play a role in the future of their neighborhood, particularly after an announcement last year that President Obama’s library, museum and foundation complex might locate nearby ...

Fox News opens Black History Month by insulting black voters: “Blacks have shown a slavish support for the Democrat party”


Fox hosted a black conservative to call black voters "political dummies"



While most morning news programs devoted much of their Monday coverage to tonight’s highly anticipated Iowa caucuses, Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” took some time to examine the importance of the African American vote on this first day of Black History Month, only to blast black voters for “slavish support” of the Democratic Party ...

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.
