Real Life Friday the 13th (Without Jason)

It was a Friday on March 13th that then-President Donald J. Trump signed a declaration of national emergency over coronavirus. Indeed, with the signing of this declaration, who would have thought almost one year later we would be in a predicament we find…

Statistics Can Lie

Years back when I was in graduate school working on my master’s degree, I took a statistics course and I learned a couple of things: 1) I hate statistics, and more importantly, 2) statistics can lie if not properly put into context.

Regarding the so-called Covid-19 pandemic, the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test is the key to…

A False Reality?

The notion that a mask will save us all and that it protects us from the all mighty and all-knowing COVID-19 virus is absurd. The science behind whether or not face coverings (stop) or slow the spread of coronavirus is questionable. In fact, there have been studies that suggest wearing a face covering is not very effective to combat the spread of such a small particle virus such as SARs-Cov-2. Another study by researchers argued that:

“the biggest threat from the coronavirus by far is what…

Trigger Warning: To be clear, don’t read this article if you are easily offended. Or if you think that government is all about protecting the citizenry and doing what is in their best interest this article may disrupt that notion. Furthermore, if you are a COVID clout chaser, coronabro, or a leftist liberal, you probably will not like what I have to say. In fact, you may call me a conspiracy theorist. Either way, I’m all about facts over feelings. Now, let’s get to it.

The Narrative

The social consciousness of the criminal justice system challenges the sanctioned killing of a human being. Indeed, many issues are surrounding the use of capital punishment, mostly the social power society exercises regarding human life (Foucault, 1977). The focus of the criminal justice system is retribution. When an individual is executed or sentenced to prison, the state is saying this individual no longer has human capital. This short paper attempts to analyze three aspects, 1) the components of organizational structure, 2) the notion of human capital, and 3) how the criminal justice system, particularly corrections, can maximize human capital.

Death the Great Equalizer

As we bring in a new year and start a new decade, I am thankful I am still here to enjoy my life. Every day, people die who are not celebrities and were ordinary people living their lives until their demise. These people may be our mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, cousins, aunts, uncles, son, daughter, and the list goes on. …

Young Girls Aspire to Be Like Cardi B — Yikes!

In a 2017 interview with Billboard, Cardi B vowed to be a “better example for young girls”. She continued, “I realized, after Halloween, a lot of little girls, they be looking up to me”. Yikes! To think that young adoring girls look up to Cardi B is frightening if you are parent. Nothing against Cardi B, but with recent videos of Cardi B resurfacing on social media, describing her past exploits with men, it’s cringe worthy to think that young girls look up to her.

It’s not surprising though that…


Update: This story was originally published in 2019. Currently Joe Biden is President of the United States and he signed an Executive Order Preventing and Combating Discrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity or Sexual Orientation. This EO effectively allows biological men to compete in women’s sports. Thus, my original article was quite prescient.

How could this happen? Why wasn’t more done to vet the individual who would be reading to children in a public library? To flip burgers at McDonald’s even requires a person to receive a basic background check, let alone reading books to impressionable children at a public library. Why hasn’t this convicted sex offender been arrested? These are just a few questions that should be answered after a convicted sex offender was allowed to read to children in the Houston Library dressed up as a woman.

There is no denying that President Trump’s tenure as president has been rife with controversy. In fact, prior to him becoming the Commander and Chief, he was a polarizing figure in the real estate game as a savvy businessman. Notwithstanding, Donald J. Trump became a television icon of sorts on his hit show The Apprentice.

Now that President Trump has been in office a little over two years, I have noticed several things that I find odd about his presidency. I will only focus on two things.
