Winners and Losers

(The below is a post that I made on my blog .) A few days ago while chilling at the internet cafe, I had a conversation with one of the owners. We discussed the hearts of champions. To him, true champions remain with their teams through thick and thin, if possible. To me, true champions make the best decisions for themselves. The owner roots for the underdogs. I root for the overdogs. He asked me why; “why do I root for the overdogs?” I told him that I root for overdogs because underdogs are...

Never Forsake Yourself for Others

(The below is a post that I made on my blog .) I decided to make this post because oftentimes I hear people--mostly women that go to school with me--that want to do something nonprofit related once they finish with all of their schooling. Now, this would not be an issue, except for the fact that I am a business major, so nonprofit is the exact opposite of business since business is all about making money. (By the way, I am aware of philanthropy, but for the sake of this post I am not talking...

Melissa Harris-Perry’s new job as Editor-at-Large at Elle.com’s

Even so, on many occasions I saw management promote employees, (both black and white) who only had high school diplomas into positions where the posted job...

Holiday Season's African's Perspective

Holiday Season's African's Perspective From eyes of Africans, today's world is a living legacy of western culture's dominance that is laden with misconceptions, distortions, along with misinterpretations. These holidays are from their point of view. Another spectrum, is global African communities (whom are descendants of slavery, as well as those born on the motherland) never investigate why they celebrate them. Only a few Africans research these traditions leaving an overwhelming majority...

The Lone Voice...

For many years, I've been in cyber, speaking about all the things that matter to me.  Often, I encounter souls who acknowledge what I say, the truth being the foundation of everything written about.  However, there are times when I wonder if...
