There is trouble in oil paradise. It seems that all the elements of an already explosive geopolitical concoction are getting vigorously stirred. The palace coup in Saudi Arabia, conducted by King Salman’s own son, Prince Mohammad bin Salman, on June 21, 2017, should be understood as the second salvo of a potentially hot war between two Sunni blocks: on one hand, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and Bahrain; on the other hand, Qatar and its allies of circum

Donald Trump can always be counted on for a certain perspective. So when he - several years ago, before he was president - without context, asserted that our nation’s violent crime problem generates almost exclusively from the Black and Hispanic communities, it came as no surprise. The then-New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg seemed to echo Trump’s remarks. We see his thinking at work in the decision to send ATF agents to Chicago like a foreign occupying army. What these st

No, I haven't lost my faith and I haven't surrendered to hopelessness, but, yet, I have tried to view my present circumstances with an understanding that this too, someway; somehow will pass. Yes, I know it's a genetic disease for which there is no cure or treatment - although there are things that can be done to help manage it better. Nevertheless, I still believe in the miraculous. This disease has moved in, against my objections and my will, like the psychotic dorm-mate fr

Every so often I have to talk to my brothers & sisters who don't quite understand where I stand. So, instead of writing over again that which has already been written, I'm re-posting this from 2014. "The National Black Day of Silence has passed and I guess I can now speak my piece regarding some of the nonsense that I've seen and read. 1. It's not my job to explain to my fairer-skinned brothers and sisters that recognizing and observing a day of silence, for what is OVERWHELM

I suppose this should considered a RMG News Rant. This was in the aftermath of the verdict of not guilty on all charges for Officer Yanez in the MURDER of Philando Castile. Yes, I was heated. During this broadcast I was not a journalist or reporter, I was a Black man with half a century of anger & pain. I can't, and won't, apologize. #racialprofiling #racism #news #currentevents #politics #PhilandoCastile #murderbycop #lawenforcementracism #trial #jury

Two extremely important events have taken place in Latin America in past few weeks. Of course we all know of the death of Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez, but there has been little attention paid to what’s taking place in Argentina.
A trial that began last Tuesday, March 5, in Argentina, is poised to reveal new details about how six Latin American countries coordinated with each other in the 1970s and 1980s to eliminat

Republican Party darling Mike Huckabee, during a recent speech, decided to dispense some tough love to a predominantly white audience when he voiced his concerns about the state of affairs in American white communities. "The epidemic of whites involved in drunk-driving fatality accidents is deplorable," Huckabee said. He cited the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's 2000 statistics that showed that white male drivers between the ages of 21-34 constituted the larg
