I have long felt that the baby boomer generation, my generation, did not fulfill its potential after a promising start in the late 1960s. In her col...
Are you a real Christian who lives by what your bible preaches or are you a fake one who pretends to be virtuous while spewing unsullied animosity towards anyone who does not agree with you while you actively prevent the struggling lower class of America from enjoying the same kind of life that you feel that you are entitled to?
I've been researching Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) and the issues pertaining to their students for over 20 years. I have a new book out - Edu...
Progressive big hitters were out on the field Monday and they successfully swung for the fences. If only -- and it's a big if -- if only the party could liberate itself from the stranglehold of Big Money. For off camera, out of sight and (for the moment) out of mind, one could sense the corrupting presence of the lobbyists of corporate America.
Last week, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton announced Virginia Senator Tim Kaine as her running mate. Many Democrats are happy with Kaine, a respe...
Here they are! The mature female role models are rolling in, and I have to say I think they are fantastic; stronger and more powerful than almost any other generation before and after them.
There has always been a truth to the idiom 'where there is smoke there is fire' and Donald Trump's statements and actions seem to be fanning a huge blaze. His entire campaign, as evidenced by the Republican convention, is geared to incite the worst in the American people and to scare them into voting for him.
Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has five challenges she faces in her acceptance speech. Not one of them has to do with her GOP rival Trump. The first is personal, very personal. She has to make people want to vote for her not just because she's the most savvy, experienced, prepared and knowledgeable about foreign and domestic policy issues, which she is. But because they like her.
I humbly suggest that my "Bernie or Bust/Never Hillary" friends (of which I have several) try the same thought experiment: Are you ready? Close your eyes and imagine you wake up the day after the elections to discover that Donald Trump will be the next president.
This isn't a plea to ask Iranian-Americans to vote for Hillary Clinton. However, when it comes to minorities, it's unclear whether we stand a chance against a man who spews vitriol and rants about bans and walls.
I have been in denial through the years as I have witnessed the Clinton / Clinton shift to right wing foreign policies that parrot the fear-mongering drum beats perpetuated by the well-funded islamophobia industry. I say to Bill Clinton, listening to your speech last night where you romanticized your wife gave me some comfort in this political circus -- until you said what you said. And I'm not alone.
How useful will Debbie Wasserman Schultz be in Hillary Clinton's campaign? originally appeared on Quora - the knowledge sharing network where compelli...
In the presidential election, the choice is clear. Clinton and Kaine are the gun sense champions. They agree we can reduce the too-easy access to guns in America -- and reduce gun deaths -- without infringing on anyone's rights. They understand that freedom means being able to pray, go to the movies, go to a dance club, without fearing for your life.
My wife, a schoolteacher, watched the DNC for hours today, tearing up as Hillary Clinton was nominated for president. But my thirteen-year-old daughter didn't share the same emotion, wondering what the fuss was all about. She's now used to hearing about the accomplishments of women. And that's a good thing.
I am an idealist and I fight for what I believe in, but I am also a realist. Either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton will be elected president.
