Integration of the races and placating tactics like affirmative action, diversity & inclusion, and body cameras for police officers have led Black America to become complacent or turn a blind eye to the disparities that the civil rights movement vowed to eradicate.   The racial wealth gap is persistently widening, police brutality and racial animus is on the rise, and schools are becoming increasingly segregated to the detriment of our Black students. These disparities in economics, education, ...

For the first time, people of all races are stepping up on the frontlines of nationwide protests in order to protest police brutality against African Americans. Also for the first time, people of other races and especially white people, are witnessing first hand the sinister nature of police brutality, as since protests began police have been documented using extreme force against peaceful ...

From a young age, I had always stuck up for those that were being bullied or mistreated. My older brother is mentally disabled and I hated seeing people laugh at him or make fun of his disability. This led me to be overly protective of those that were being bullied in any way especially at school or on the playground. I would always step in to try and defuse the situation or stick up for the person that was being bullied. I always had to say something. It wasn’t until 2016 that my passion for s...

If many kids came home with a cold or fever back then, imagine how much more scared parents should be. Their child could come home with a life-threatening disease of which there is no cure.      States ...
