What is democracy? The dictionary describes it as a system of government by the whole population or all the eligible members of a state, typically through elected representatives. But what does that really mean?
Georgia state Rep. Vernon Jones, a Black man from the Deep South, delivered a speech in support of President Donald Trump at the Republican National Convention. His appearance, and what he said, was criticized by many Black Americans. Jones wrote an op-ed for CNN explaining why he chose to leave the Democratic party. Here are some excerpts from his letter.
Fans around the globe are mourning the loss of iconic "Black Panther" actor Chadwick Boseman, who died Friday from colon cancer at the age of 43.
Our "Forever First Lady" Michelle Obama did a TKO on President Donald Trump in her powerful speech for the 2020 Democratic National Convention. She was poised and to the point while she laid out the case against Trump and the importance of, frankly, getting him out of office. Here are some of our favorite highlights from her speech:
When a leader demands "law and order" it is usually in a plea to reduce crime, get drugs and guns off the streets or increase police patrol in areas of need.

California Sen. Kamala Harris has made history after former Vice President Joe Biden selected her to be his running mate in the 2020 election against President Donald Trump.
For generations, the fight when it comes to our children and schools have been about integration, better resources, bridging the educational gaps between whites and minority students and, over the last few years, conquering the digital divide when it comes to students in underserved communities.
Just when we thought that President Donald Trump couldn't go further off the deep end with his bizarre statements, he -- like the Energizer Bunny -- just keeps going and going and going. Let's take the top three statements that flew out of his mouth over the last couple of weeks.
The word they use is "negotiating," but it is more fitting to flat out call it what it is --fighting -- as Democrats and Republicans are trying to reach a decision on what to do about unemployment benefits during this pandemic.
Racism is not "child's play," and President Donald Trump -- no matter how juvenile he acts -- is nothing to play with, nor is this election. But before we let you go about the business of your day (some blind to what is happening right before your eyes) we must take you through a walk in time to show you how ignorance of the past dooms you to ALLOW others to SNEAK a REPEAT on you.
