POLITICAL WOMEN PLEASE

More women, international political leaders, are what the world needs. On the African continent it’s an urgency. Political men have outlived their useful… uselessness.   When I’m not in church on a Sunday morning, I use the time to partake of the religion of politics by watching and listening to the ideological ponderings of diverse characters that saturate network television. And there’re enough characters every channel espousing individual political and ideological perspectives to nourish and satiate viewers’ political bents. I especially like CNN’s Global Public Square (GPS) hosted by Fareed Zakaria, an award-winning journalist, political scientist, and author. And his …

Montreal’s economy booms. Blacks continue to lag

We watch as the good times roll Montreal is booming. In fact, it was the top economic performer among all Canadian cities and at the same time out-performing almost every American city in 2018. It’s unlike anything seen in this city’s recent history as almost every sector of the economy fires in overdrive, bringing jobs, stimulating the real estate market and boosting arts and culture. And the progress parade is expected to continue as forecasters are projecting Montreal’s gross domestic product to rise by at least 4.2 per cent, while unemployment drops to 5.5 per cent, the lowest it has …

Be The Change…

Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself: [L. Tolstoy] It’s so easy to look at someone and decide that they need to change, but it’s not quite as easy to look within and realize that you might be the one that actually needs to make some adjustments. Mathew 7:3-5  tells us:  “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?  How can you say to your brother, let me take the speck out of your eye, when all the …

Crimson love for the Black race: You are worth dying for

It is such a beautiful sight when one witnesses the diversity of our races in one setting. We are almost five months into the year but I am convinced that, together,this year 2019, we are going to change the perspective that, we the Black race has had  about ourselves. We have to learn to appreciate our race, our beauty, our intelligence, our worth and value; even the color of our skin. Your skin, no matter what it’s shade, is beautiful in the sight of God; because he created it that way. We are living canvases to display the creative and …

The province’s notion of inclusion is turning into a nightmarish delusion.

Quebec’s Bill 21: Secularism and Antagonism The leader of the American civil rights movement and Baptist minister, Martin Luther King Jr. once said: “Nothing in the entire world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.” Currently, Quebec is lending truth to the statement as the government and the people become enmeshed in the brouhaha surrounding religious symbols. The act and its accompanying fact were clearly spelt out in the CAQ’s campaign promises. Now everyone is beginning to shout as the premier shows what he is all about. First the say and now the play. On October 1, 2018 …

Community Activism. Generations apart

The divide between old and young on the battlefield of racial and financial freedom in the age of social media Nowadays, nostalgia has become a disease among our elders contributing to an illness that’s making our community sick to its bones. Listen to those elders speak; it appears as though they have given up on the current generation, accusing these younger folks of abandoning the struggle for self-determination and their well being. My response is to question whether social, political and economic empowerment could be possible in this divide? It’s something we all have to wait for. But we know …

When, where, how will the hate end?

On March 27, the CAQ government finally delivered on its promise to restrict the wearing of religious garb and symbols of any kind  where government business is conducted. This (restriction), known as Bill 21, only applies to the employees of the state: health care professionals, teachers, police, and so on. At the source of this religious symbol angst and conversation is religion, specifically Muslims, practitioners of the Islamic faith and what’s perceived (by some)as creeping Islamisation of Quebec society – hijab, niqab, etc., and then there’re Jewish religious symbols – Star of David, yarmulke, Kippa… The only reason why the …

Quebec Religious symbols bill IS WITHOUT MERIT

Opposition mounts Everyday Quebec grows a little more intolerant of its minorities and less accommodating, to the extent it’s on the road to becoming a global spectacle when it comes to xenophobia and hate. Who would have thought that in a global environment where big-time hate-emitter Donald Trump is spewing so much bile about immigrants that Quebec would be today’s poster child for alienating minorities? That’s what it has come to with the proposed legislation tabled by the governing CAQ in the National Assembly on Thursday, March 28, which aims to ban public servants in positions of authority, from wearing …
