The Haze of Life

Posted · Add Comment

Have you ever sat and contemplated why you were born? For that matter why any of us humans were born? I, for some reason, have been asking myself this question for years. It’s easy to get caught up in the haze of things that look good like bling, houses or cars. So many of us […]

Spring

Spring is the season of growing; it’s the season of fresh and clean. Since I was a child growing up in Chicago it’s been my favorite season.  Well, I guess when you’re from one of the coldest cities in the winter it only makes sense. Yet, I’ve loved it more for the newness then for […]

What say you white privilege?

What is America but a system of narcissistic privilege. So laced in greed and destruction it knows no morality. I have been a student of history as far back as I can remember. Because of this, I have grown with an understanding that in order to achieve greatness and not succumb to the culture, I […]

I travel often mainly for business. My travel tends to take me away from my family. I’ve noticed that I miss my family more each time I go away. Even when I’m traveling for pleasure. Not sure if it’s because I’m getting older or for some other reasons but I’ve noticed it nevertheless. What I’ve […]

This is the season of lions. Time to hunt and seize opportunities. To never give up on what it is you want. Like a lion hunts its prey, stay low to the ground and forever hungry; it’s the season of the lion and the lion will be fed. This is the season of lions. Being […]

I read an article about high black achievers like the first black billionaire Reginald Lewis and Black Enterprise founder Earl Graves. The article was asking the question why do so many high achievers that graduated from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) choose to send their children to Ivy League or predominantly white institutions (PWI)?

Bike Ride

Yesterday my wife taught our daughter how to ride her bike. You might ask why am I choosing this to write about? What is the big deal hundreds to even thousands of children learn to ride a bike every day? Well, for now, I’ll just say because of the word postulate. Two weeks ago at […]
