Although it is not widely perceived within our culture, the control of social perceptions is something that has always been utilized to manipulate masses of people around the world, and this engineering of perceptions is a process whereby the controlling social powers sort to determine how the people within that society would consider, perceive and think about the very nature of their social construct.
The powers that be would send out many feelers, whose job would be to locate nonconformist, those who thought independently or those who considered the system with very critical observations.... (more)
Its fading pages wrinkled and disfigured, the aging book cover (his diary), the torn seams that once laced so tightly, so neatly, now appear frail and ancient, moth balls fall from its pleats as the book is opened one last time. In the entrance of the index our eyes wonder deliriously over the pages as if our lives depended on its valuable yet decomposing information, we dare not take our eyes off the pages, for we feared that the words that it contained would simply disappear; vanish like honeycombs of soap powered rings never to be read again. Not in the slightest way would we be able to recall... (more)
In our idle time a few of us dabble a little in the study of law and criminal sciences, these proclivities for acquiring such knowledge certainly doesnâ€™t empower one as an authority of these fields, even the best of us who are considered professionals and experts find it difficult at times to determine what is legally responsible or morally dignified as it pertains to dispensing criminal justice. This is never more meaningful than determining when and if civilian justice or services is either warranted or justified, in criminal cases where the civilian takes the law in his/her own hands and...

Nature has amply provided for all of its wild life giving to them the call to practice the reflexes and instincts which is inherent in them for survival sake, a trait I have found fascinating in the life of a wolf. It only grieves me to discover that there are some species of wolf (the Ethiopian wolf) that are in danger of extinction, and if they should perish the eco-nature of this world will once again change for the worst. Perhaps it is because each member of earthly living creatures represents a portion of stability of our environmental natural order, with this knowledge we understand that... (more)
Making free people into slaves required uncivil practices which allowed the slave makers trainings the ability to break the slave as you would a horse. Such teachings were instructed by William Lynch, slave master, plantation owner. Lynch was a British slave owner in the West Indies who came to the United States to tell American slave owners how to keep their slaves under control in addition to expressing how disconcerting it was to him to see them killing their slaves and losing their financial investments. It is alleged that the term "lynching" is derived from Lynch's name, and amply so I might... (more)
I donâ€™t know how to start this story because it is a powerful and emotional one, and it is so close to home it touches me personally, this issue Iâ€™m sure will also invade your private (touching you vigorously inundated among the recesses of your mind) space (comfort zone) as well. Within all of the problems that exist in and around the world, and among all of the people who have to deal with those problems I am unequivocally convinced that Black Americans have the most unique set of problems in the history of the world. You might not have guessed it but there is a war going on, in fact there... (more)

While there are many standards of progress that we can attribute our success or failures to as a nation and as human beings there is only one standard that holds the power to transform the world, and that is a motherâ€™s love. Without it (a motherâ€™s love) we can be assured of a world that has no leaders who love, rather who have a tendency to rob, incriminate the innocent, and murder them through the use of wars without just cause. So far we have seen the tragedy of kids shooting kids, killing teachers, and the eruption of world conflict throughout the ages, none of it makes any sense. In awe... (more)
Two champions step into the ring but only one man steps out victorious, seemingly unscathed. It was the night of all nights and one that will be remembered for a long time, as many fans from around the world stayed glued to the tube in hopes of witnessing something spectacular in boxing history. I know I was certainly surprised at the outcome as I had expected, (like every body else I imagine) that the brawler would win, that this powerful puncher would be triumphant as he had always been. He was forty three and zero, an impressive record while his opponent was thirty eight and zero, neither was... (more)
The conceptual ambiguity of freedom in its many forms has always exacted a price that has managed to escape the fullness of its own ideology.
There have always been men and women who have and who will continue to die for the freedoms that we profess to have, and in an ironic sort of way they continue to pay the ultimate price for our maximum political gains here in the states. For instance the right to free speech, which is an intrinsic part of the Constitution that is sealed with the force of law, and the Bill of Rights, this is a political gain for free people.
It professes... (more)
