Join me as we discuss how our personal issues can have an adverse affect on people around us. Every day in America members of the African American entertainment community are afforded an opportunity to make decisions and choices, which affects the lives of their viewing or listening audience. Over the course of the last week, the African American entertainment community has made choices, which at best, has raised serious concerns. Porsha Stewart was arrested; Kerry Washington continues to disgrace the office of the Presidency and African American women in her adulterous role as the personal sex toy of the alleged President of the United States, and Mimi of a reality show issues a sex tape. Aside, Shanesha Taylor cries in a mug shot as she is subject to arrest on allegations of child abuse. Her excuse: "Single Parenting"! She gets financial support from people like Amanda Bishop and others who feel sorry for her stating she had no other choice because she had to attend a job interview. SHOWS SAY AMANDA BISHOP (IT IS SHANESHA TAYLOR)

Is it acceptable for a person to speak at a college who has not graduated? Are they the best candidiate to teach people how to use a college degree in this market when they do not have a degree? Or is it best for them to speak at a high school graduation about alternatives to college?

George Washington must have been the most reluctant boy to man to become a hero to his countrymen: as an adventurer, surveyor, statesman, general, president or renowned distiller of his still famous bourbon recipe - George Washington's “White Dog”.
When looking at the life of this great American one begins to wonder if God above set him aside as a man of his times and one as an example for the ages. I ask you how many teenage boys ever put together a book much less one on rules for civility. He surveyed one Virginia’s natural wonders at Natural Bridge as a teenager as well.
It could easily be argued that without George Washington not only would the colonies have lost the war for independence; they would not have been able to keep an army together to defend this new nation. He then goes on to keep these new United States of America from becoming just one more Monarchy vs an elected and term limited presidency.
George Washington really desired one thing during his entire life. He wanted to live with his wonderful wife Martha and develop Mount Vernon on the Potomac River into their home and a thriving plantation. Something he rarely was given the chance to pursue as history continuously beckoned George Washington - the reluctant Hero.
The words impossible and can't are not in our 2 guests respective vocabularies.

He speaks truth and definately a force to be reckoned in Michigan politics. He is for restoring of the Middle Class and helping Working Families. He's not beholden to billionaire Special Interest groups and is grassroots to the core. https://www.facebook.com/TBJ4MIHOUSE

If Bernard Hopkins were a participant in any other professional sport, he would be lauded as not only as an all time great, but one who would hands down be considered as a once in a lifetime enigma surpassing the boundaries of all sport and logical comprehension.
I mean, this can be said of what he's accomplished as the middleweight champion of the world log before he moved up to the light heavyweight to accomplish after the age of 40 what most fighters would love to have done in the span of their entire career!
So for him to be fighting at the age of 49 at the championship level is something unheard of in most contact sports altogether. It becomes an even more mind blowing accomplishment when you realize that this was all done in what has to be considered the hardest sport of them all!
But for some reason the masses just don't seem to get it and will regret it when the career of Bernard Hopkins comes to an end. But most who haven't cared to understand that we havce an all time great in our midst will feel much better knowing that they can play catch up on all of the YouTube videos that have captured his greatness as well as the very informative and entertaining interviews that he is well known for.
Yes, 49 year old Bernard Hopkins may not be what he used to be 20 years ago, but you've got to understand that this fight is just a month shy of being 21 years after his first middleweight title bout with Roy Jones back in May of 1993. That fact alone blows your mind when you think that a person can fight at the championship level for so long and still maintain winning.
Maybe these other Performance Enhancing Drug using athletes could learn a thing or two from the former Executioner who now goes by the name "The Alien."
See you on fight night!
