BLACK-OWNED BANKS SEE SURGE OF NEW APPLICANTS

 Dr Umar Johnson on the value of protest:
Protest is the first stage of any political or economic struggle. Protest is your marketing program to let the world know what I stand for; what happening to me; and what I want. Protest allows you to control the public narrative of your struggle. Without protest the world doesn’t know why you’re doing what you are doing. Protest is important because it’s your way of putting out your message.  So you can’t do nothing without it.

ROMNEY ON TRUMP: TRICKLE DOWN RACISM

I agree with Romney’s concerns about having a thin skinned, misogynist, loudmouth, uncouth, ignorant bigot in the White House. But trickle down racism it is not. Since the election and re-election of our country’s first African American president, the racism from the GOP/Tea Party has been vastly more like a torrential downpour than a trickle.
