Richard Sherman’s post-game comments overblown by information bubbles




The information bubble-blowers are ever on the job. In case you forgot, an information bubble is produced oftentimes by the media, sending out information that confirms any misbeliefs fans already have about a certain person — and usually that person is Black. I watched Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman’s post-game comments. If you are among those who don’t know what the young man said, here is the gist of it:

“I’m the best cornerback in the game,” said Sherman. “When you try me with a sorry receiver like [San Francisco’s Michael] Crabtree, that’s the result you are going to get.”

Sherman afterwards has been called everything but a child of God. Continue Reading →

Our team has taken over others areas including Wisconsin, Kansas and Illinois teaching instructors to teach permit to carry and use of a weapon in self-defense in the home and/or in public.

Traditional marriage and voter IDs at issue


Traditional marriage is a very important proposed state constitutional amendment in the company of voter IDs. Secretary of State Mark Ritchie got a lesson in civics when our Minnesota court tossed out his legal attempts to delay both amendments being on the November ballot (see my last column). I predict both the voter ID and traditional marriage amendments shall pass. Let me advise you that as quiet as it is kept, many Blacks, mainly Christian Blacks, will vote in favor of marriage between a man and woman despite Obama, football players, entertainers and others jumping out in favor of gay marriage. Why? Continue Reading →
