Why Do Black Lives Matter Now?

Something has been bothering me since George Floyd’s murder.  What made this murder enough for white people to finally protest?  Blacks have been telling you about racism in the US forever.  There is this fantasy that since slavery is over and on paper, we are equal and that everything has been fine.  Stop complaining.  You see the statistics and you have even seen the videos but we always face the same questions.  What did the victim do?  What is his criminal record?  I truly believe if people were not forced to sit home and actually watch the George Floyd video that most of the world wouldn’t have protested.  It took a… Read More

Why Defunding the Police is Only Part of the Solution

What does defunding the police mean? It doesn’t mean abolishing the police.  It simply means moving money from the police and putting into other things that are for citizens wellness. We not only need more body cameras, but we need laws for officers that deliberately turn off their cameras.  What are they trying to hide?  Officers should be forced to intervene when they see officers cross the line or they themselves are complicit.  We need laws for excessive use of force.  The officer that killed Eric Garner used an illegal choke-hold but didn’t face any consequences.  Even when they are breaking the law the officers are not punished.  We need… Read More

We Demand Justice for Breonna Taylor

Breonna Taylor was an essential front line worker for her community. She should be celebrating her 27th birthday today. Instead she was murdered in March. A month ago, the Louisville Police Department performed an unannounced no-knock drug raid on her home while she was in bed. Not one of the officers announced themselves before breaking down the door and firing 22 shots, shooting Breonna 8 times. The officers not only had the wrong house but the man they were looking for was already in custody and had been arrested earlier that day. None of these officers have been arrested and it has been a month. Charges must be filed immediately.… Read More

America is Racist

I am an American and America is racist.  This is nothing new and America is what we thought it was.  So many people, especially whites, think racism has improved by great strides in America.  Oh, you mean because we are not sold and purchased anymore.  I guess we should be satisfied with that.  People say we have allies and whites have contributed to this change but there are some that the history books celebrate when they shouldn’t.  First of all, let’s clarify that racism and slavery are two different things.  You can be against slavery and still be racist.  Let’s investigate these white “allies” that people have praised in American… Read More

Michael Jordan: The Best Ever…

The Last Dance documentary by ESPN and has created more discussion ever about Michael Jordan being the best player to ever play basketball.  I admit MJ used to be my favorite player and I owned just about every pair of Air Jordans that were created before 2003.  But even I can admit that Lebron James is the GOAT.  People credit Jordan the most for everything.  But what did he accomplish before Pippen and Phil?  How many championships did he have?  Phil changed the way MJ played a bit when he took over as head coach and used Pippen more and moved the ball around to his teammates.  Armstrong, Kerr or Paxson hit a game… Read More

The 2019 UCI Road World Cycling Championships

The UCI Road World Cycling Championships took place between 21 to 29 September 2019 and North Yorkshire was on display to the world.  I had no idea how big this was going to be but this was bigger than the Tour de’ France.  Hundreds of thousands of people filled the small town of Harrogate to watch the races.  Traffic was redirected and streets were closed down.   The races brought a lot of former champions to town and many sponsors.  One of my local pubs was hosting a ride with ex world champion Johan Museuew from Belgian and I was contacted to take photos before they rode off.  The local pub… Read More
