    22 Apr 2015 | 7:34 pm
    As you might -or might not- know, a couple of "black intellectuals" are at war with each other right now. On one side of the battlefield is Dr. Eric Dyson, and on the other side is Dr. Cornel West.The oratorical reciprocation and verbal jostling has been fun to watch.Fortunately we have some brilliant black writers in the middle who can break it all down for us."I began reading Michael Eric Dyson’s lengthy essay for the New Republic, “The Ghost of Dr. Cornel West,” with some trepidation. By the time I finished it, I was sickened. Framed as an impartial assessment of…

    21 Apr 2015 | 6:54 pm
    I am starting to really dislike St. Louis and its surrounding areas.There just isn't any good news coming out of that area recently. I just read about the poor woman who took over as mayor in the town of Parma and a bunch of city employees quitting because she is...wait for it, black.And now that the city of Parma has elected its first black mayor, the town of about 700 residents is suffering another kind of abandonment: Six of its 11 employees — including the police chief, city clerk and water department supervisor — have resigned.“I don’t understand,” said Tyus Byrd, who was sworn…

    Been following this Britt McHenry story a little bit. If only because I am always fascinated at the way our culture glorifies certain types of people, and then turns on them with equal venom when warranted.Britt is your classic entitled prima donna with what I like to call a Scarlett O' Hara complex. The way she went off on that poor woman was painful to watch. Most people believe that she crossed the line, and that her suspension was appropriate. And, not surprisingly, quite a few people believe that she should have been fired. Personally, I am still not sure where I…
  • The "hypocritical pretense" of the American man.

    Chris Christie (he of the one percent) says that he is "not wealthy". Go figure. Although now that the rest of us are starting to catch on, politicians from the left and the right are trying their best to shed that rich guy label. But is it necessary? Americans still look up to the wealthy because we believe that with just a little hard work we too will be in their position one day. Articles like the one below, however, says otherwise."The American way of life—more simply, the American way—is charged with affirming our American ideals of “life, liberty and the…

Salon has an extensive interview with Michael Dyson about his effort to "ether" Cornel West.The Root also has an audio interview with Dyson about his falling out with West.In keeping with the professional wrestling trope I suggested in this piece, West must now cut a promo back in response to Dyson.If I were booking the Dyson versus West program, West would surprise Dyson at first with the ferocity and intensity of his counter-strike. Dyson is the student turned master. West is the master. Dyson would then strike back in a way…

Few analogies are either more powerful or more universally understood than comparing a public figure to an iconic fighter. Dr.

    Last evening, I had the pleasure of attending comedian Dick Gregory's concert at the Promontory restaurant and lounge in Chicago.He is a legend. Gregory is also a legend who delivers on the promise of his title and reputation. One must wonder does he have the secret of youth? Did he obtain if through a nefarious bargain? Or is Gregory's vitality the result of good living and a fortunate roll of the genetic dice?Opening for a legend is difficult. It is also an honor. Some of the younger comedians who stepped out on the stage before Gregory are very early in their training. They are journeyman…

    "If you haven't heard Oliver and his boys you haven't heard real jazz. It is loud, wailing and pulsating. You dance calmly for a while, trying to fight it, and then you succumb completely, as King makes his trumpet talk personally to you – and the trumpet usually doesn't say nice things. Hip dancing is carried out wholesaledly between the customers. Native jazz has no conscience."- Variety (Review from the 1920s)King Oliver's story reads as if Shakespeare was dared to come back and write a jazz tragedy. There is the high note of ushering the New Orleans sound into Chicago. Plenty of lows,…

    5 Apr 2015 | 12:00 am
    1This is not an attempt to appeal to the sensibilities of yesteryear, a clarion-call for the new Charlie Parker, the new Al Green, or even the new Nas. Outside of a few universal concepts embodied by each of those artists (namely, a kind of modernist inventiveness useful in all ages, an insistence on the power of love, a dedication to an honest assessment of human struggle, in that order), none of them have anything uniquely contemporary to say to the listener today. Hip-hop itself has begun to compromise its own relevance by growing ironic in relation to its most noteworthy period (i.e., the…

    4 Apr 2015 | 10:00 pm
    IntroductionThe aim here is to trace the origins of the use of ancient Egyptian iconography in black American music. It can be found as far back as the 1950s with artists such as Sun Ra, continuing with Alice Coltrane in the 1960s, through to Earth Wind and Fire, X Clan, KRS One, Erykah Badu, and a host of others in-between and after. While Western composers such as Mozart and Verdi had made reference to ancient Egypt in their work (The Magic Flute & Aida), a unique set of historical circumstances led to black American artists doing the same.Thus I wish to draw attention to artists whose use…

    I was not yet born when many of music's most respected and celebrated pioneers were experiencing the fast life and restless times at the pinnacle of their careers. Nonetheless, the common trait between the musical icons that seems to resonate with me most, was their ability to possess a noticeable peace with aging or being wherever they are in life. Bill Withers spoke presciently on the subject during Damani Baker and Alex Vlack's documentary, "Still Bill": "One of the things I always tell my kids is that it's OK to head out for wonderful, but on your way to 'wonderful,' you're gonna have to…

I had thought once this holy season was upon me that I would just settle in naturally and be at home with God.Well, none of this is remotely true. As a matter of fact, I am not feeling holy in the way that I was hoping to feel holy. And truth be told, my prayer life sucks at the moment.

I don’t have any personal views about Hari. She probably wanted more orifices gobbling healthy eats (good!), but maybe she was a bit uninformed? “Our food education is woefully inadequate,” Salon smartly notices. “Many people still don’t know what makes a meal genuinely healthy.” I know certainly didn’t until relatively recently!

Question #11 gives it away: Take four minutes and tell your partner your life story in as much detail as possible. Apparently, we’re all such sad, broken, happy, fragile, interesting, contradictory, strong and confused little individuals that piecing together those tiny, intimate fragments with someone is exactly what makes them care for us.

We didn’t have the kind of money that covered family vacations, so I didn’t dip my toes in an ocean or sit in a plane’s cabinet until later in life. As I kid, I just thought: My life will be what it always has been. I support internationalism and exchange programs because they expose participants to different worlds.
