YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY! I’ve been around for ONE whole year!!!! YUP, it was a year ago today that my friend at Soul Jonz sat down with me and suggested I started a blog.

From voter registration frauds being alleged and Obama being tied to ACORN and still […]Read more "The Gloves Come Off: John McCain’s Combustible Campaign as Sarah Palin Fights Ethics Charges"

Yeah, I just came out an African American Church History class as I […]Read more "Obama Youth: To Step or Not to Step"
