Cancel Culture is Problematic. But You Already Knew That.

The past couple of weeks have been quite a doozy. Dr. Seuss Enterprises decided they were going to stop printing six of their books, “And To Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street,” “If I Ran the Zoo,” “McElligot’s Pool,” “On Beyond Zebra!,” “Scrambled Eggs” and “The Cat’s Quizzer,” with the reason being these…

For the 46th Time..

Joseph R. Biden is officially the 46th President of the United States. What a refreshing thing to say! After the last 4-5 years of utter chaos, we finally have someone in the White House that’s calling for peace and unity. I saw my Facebook timeline filled with sentiments of joy (most of my conservative friends…

The Price You Pay for Being Aware

You mad? That phrase in all of it’s grammatically incorrect glory has been asked for centuries. Over the last few years, it’s been asked of me. Why, you ask? Because I talk about my racial experiences. Let me be transparent. The societal construct of racism has always interested me. Initially, it was due to my…

Sedition, Insurrection, and the Acceptance Thereof

Yesterday was one of the wildest days I’ve ever witnessed in American history. Trump supporters stormed the Capitol in Washington, D.C. to object to the election results. It is being reported that one protestor was shooting into the House chamber causing them to clear the floor and barricade the doors. The actions come after President…

What I Learned in 2020

Congratulations!! If you were blessed to be able to make it to the end of 2020, then you should be grateful beyond words. Seeing the end of this year is like beating Donkey Kong, Jumanji, and Monopoly at the same time. In less hyperbole, 2020 has been rough, but in that there’s been blessings. Here…

Don’t Talk About it. Be About It.

I’ve never been a fan of LeBron James. Ever. He had way too much hype coming into the NBA. His shot really wasn’t sweet. He bullies his way to the rim on offense and had the nerve to flop on defense. No finesse whatever (rip Kobe!). Then, the 07 Pistons series came and I saw…

So You Say You’re Seeking the Truth..

What up y’all? I’ve been slacking on the blogging tip. Not that I don’t still write (my musings are usually Facebook statuses). However, my guy Tony encouraged me to start writing in the blog again. I appreciate your encouragement, sir. More than you know. For those who are first time readers of A Fresh Voice,…

Leadership in the Midnight Hour: Where is President Trump?

If you’ve been paying even minimal attention to current events, then you know Americans are going awwwfff! George Floyd was slowly murdered by four (former) Minneapolis Police Department officers on May 25th, 2020. Bystanders recorded video of Officer Derek Chauvin kneeling on a cuffed and detained George Floyd’s neck. This caused causing a blockage to…

I Just Want to Live

I have plenty of people on my timeline who talk spicy to me about Black Lives Matter or racism in general. Faking need for understanding or feigning desire of discussion.  As of late, I haven’t really discussed race because I don’t feel like hearing the absolute foolishness the race discussion brings about. However, this event stirred…

The MLK You Were Taught About is Not Real

Yes. Reread that headline again. The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. you were taught about in school was not real. Oh yes, the man himself existed. He lost his life for the betterment of African Americans. However, the idea of this docile negro fighting for civil rights being loved and revered in his lifetime is…

Oh, The Places We Will Go: Part 2

Last time I left you my beautiful bride and I were enjoying our reception. As much fun as we were having with family and friends, we had to get up early in the morning. Our 7 day cruise honeymoon was to begin! I have pictures for days, y’all. Shout out to the makers of the…

Oh, The Places We Will Go: Part 1

What up A Fresh Voice readers? I’m sure you noticed that I was on a long hiatus this year. You may have asked, “Where’s the fresh view?” Well, I was tied up. For good reason, though. In fact, it’s one of the best things that’s happened in my life time. I got married y’all! God…
