OP-ED: The Emotional Roller Coaster We Face As The Murders Continue To Rise #TerenceCrutcher

Yesterday, a former high school classmate of mine (Who is very active in the movement of social injustices) wrote a status on Facebook. The question was: "How are y'all feeling this morning?" I knew why he was asking. Yesterday we all woke up to more news of an unarmed black man being killed. His name was Terence Crutcher. He was a loving father, student, brother, and God-fearing man.

OP-ED: Is substance abuse lyrics in hip hop culture really a cover up for depression?

In today's hip hop culture we hear a lot about drug use. You won't be surprised to hear lyrics about someone sipping on lean or taking molly, Xanax, or even cocaine to stay high all the time. Have you ever wondered why some hip-hop songs with drug influenced lyrics are so popular? Or, why do so many people in this younger generation relate and do many drugs themselves? One of my favorite hip-hop songs to date "03 Adolescence" by J. Cole has a verse that really makes you think about this topic.…See More

The Price of Prayer: The Absence of Mental Health in the Black Church

Posted on September 13, 2016 at 4:30pm 0 Comments
