The ( Often Bloody ) Limits of White Benevolence

This weekend a New Orleans artist in the St Roch neighborhood, was attacked by a group of Black teens, one of whom he'd ironically taught at a local elementary school. This moment of White benevolence was moot as they locked eyes during the mass assault. It also graphically illustrates the ( often bloody ) limits of such benevolence in neighborhoods where its a form of masochism.
Liberal White folks, would-be " urban pioneers, "…

Should Black Folks Support Israel?











Since the late 20 Century, the state of Israel has been unfavorably compared to Apartheid South Africa and the southern fried apartheid of Jim Crow in the minds of American Blacks. This development…

Shamiya Adams Is Dead Because Of Stray Gunfire At Sleepover


Tragedies like this should evoke instant " cease fires " among not only inner city chocolate Klansmen who clearly don't care, but also warring political tribes popularly known as Black conservatives and Black liberals. When…

Can Brothers & Badges Unite In New Orleans?

The mixture of Black men & police is America's most dangerous public safety dynamic as evidenced by the growing outrage over the death of Eric Garner in Staten Island. Bringing it home to New Orleans, the picture isn't improved by the wall of silence from NOPD Superintendent Ronal Serpas regarding Black males and our police concerns.

Superintendent Serpas doesn't meet with the NAACP nor other advocates regarding brutality and racial profiling allegations.…

Liberalism Is A Step Down For Black Folks


Liberalism for Black folks, to me and other skeptics, means stepping down off a historic, high pedestal as America's perennial public test  of biblical and constitutional commitment to being little more than case loads progressives use for tax payer funded…

Invasion of The Black Church Snatchers

Like many old school/Old Testament Black men, I distanced myself from a Black church too quiet about Jim Crow-lite in  Democrat-led cities during the 80s; which also added insult to injury by excusing violence and thug culture as society's fault instead of the communities where it festers. I went from a United Methodist altar boy to an activist who changed his name to reflect status as someone born free from past enslavement.

 " What about Jesus?, " was my…

Black Conservatives & Inner City Crime

Last week, as a group of young Black men who'd just shot at someone pushed their way through a crowded bus stop ( on New Orleans world famous Canal Street's baddest block, the 1100th ), I saw yet another justification for opposing this mindset. Its random lethality re-enforces de-sanctifying inner city crime as Black conservative's top priority  The Left, led by White progressives, dutifully followed by Black Amen corners, offers reentry programs designed to line their pockets and…

Ray Nagin Gets Ten Year Love Tap


" New Orleans former mayor Nagin got a 10 year love tap today, for which I hope he'll be eternally grateful, considering 20 or more years was the maximum penalty. This shouldn't be spun into a moratorium on the fitness of Black mayors as a political class, nor fodder for…

Yet Another Cute Black New Orleans Baby Shot



Na'Tasha "Minnie" Thompson ( age 3 ), is yet another cute Black New Orleans baby who has been shot and those I call pro-crime activists will mentally press mute until the rare instance when non-Black culprits are involved. Two teenagers were also wounded in the attack and one would…

Why I Stopped Supporting Urban Events

I'm of the " School Daze " generation where urban events from high school and Black college homecomings to festivals were love fests where Black folks got together to celebrate themselves in Jim Crow-lite communities. We didn't have shootings, rape and gang attacks to worry about. The threat on the horizon back then were bigots who didn't like us peacefully assembling and police who enforced said opinion.

Fast forward to the 90s and beyond and it…

So What If Bourbon Street Suspect Is Asian!

( New Orleans ): As a hand wringing orgy afflicts those uncomfortable with the color of violent crime here and nationally, the ethnicity of the first arrest in the headline-making Bourbon Street shooting brings them some relief. He's not Black and thus can be used to ( unsuccessfully ) gloss over the clear majority of usual suspects, with the added benefit of smearing as racists any who thought he may have…

Scapegoating Lakeview Crime Prevention District

New Orleans has a world class crime problem and it's debatable whether the current US Department of Justice ( DOJ ) is helping correct this crisis or just is just playing ( possible mid term election ) politics? A recent New Orleans Advocate article about the Lakeview Crime Prevention District brought this once more to mind.


This community boasts a mostly White populace of 11,800 residents, who internally tax themselves a $110 annual…

Old School Black Men

The righteous Black man; the brother who wants to do right, in my opinion, yearns or lives the old school or Old Testament way of life. His soul aches for duties and moral absolutes which lift him to the zenith of God-given potential, as opposed to the lowly least common denominator of a hellish…
