The Politics of Pan-Hoodism

by Min. Paul Scott | Contributing Writer | Mar 18, 2020 - 4:16:07 PM

Every four years, it’s the same thing. Political operatives come before Black folk with the same Chicken Little scare tactics that the sky is falling. »

Where’s Weinstein?

by The Final Call | Mar 4, 2020 - 9:55:35 AM

Harvey Weinstein, the fallen movie industry giant, is a convicted sex criminal. But where is he? Where are the Weinstein documentaries, where are the news specials, where is the national, wall-to-wall coverage of the conviction of a prolific, serial sex abuser? »

The Medium, the Messenger and the Media Mission Matter

by Final Call Staff | Feb 12, 2020 - 11:54:26 PM

When a video clip of powerhouse CBS interviewer Gayle King was posted online, it went viral for all the wrong reasons. In the clip, Ms. King is interviewing basketball legend Lisa Leslie and dredges up an assault allega- tion about the late basketball star Kobe Bryant. »

A nation on edge and running out of time

by The Final Call | Feb 4, 2020 - 11:17:08 AM

With the Senate essentially exonerating the president, an important episode in American history doesn’t end but a new chapter is just beginning. A brash president not held accountable for anything, while even some supporters concede he did wrong, isn’t going to back down. »

by Tingba Muhammad - NOI Research Group, Guest Columnist | Jan 29, 2020 - 10:19:58 AM

Be Careful, You Might Be an Anti-Semite If …

by Demetric Muhammad-Guest Columnist- | Jan 22, 2020 - 10:39:28 AM

I recently read an ignominious article published by the JewishPress.com. It republished blogger Vic Rosenthal’s astonishingly outrageous piece that attempted to associate the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and other Black activists with a recent series of violent attacks on members of New York’s Jewish community. »

A liar in the White House, danger for the country

by The Final Call | Jan 14, 2020 - 1:25:58 PM

Dear America, Your president is a liar.
It may seem impolite or indelicate to call him such, but too much is at stake to not speak the truth. This is especially important for news media, the so-called guardian of democracy whose lap dog repetition of Bush administration lies about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq helped lead to almost two decades of war, thousands of U.S. deaths, hundreds of thousands of Arab World deaths and wasted over a trillion dollars. »

Exodus or Extermination? Escaping the Trap in 2020

by Min. Paul Scott | Guest Columnist | Jan 14, 2020 - 12:41:16 PM

Bad things do happen to good people. This is perhaps one of the oldest clichés in the book, yet it’s true. However, the question that always seems to be before us is, why do these terrible things keep disproportionately happening to Black folk? »

Could American assassination, arrogance usher in Armageddon?

by The Final Call | Jan 7, 2020 - 12:47:19 PM

“We took action last night to stop a war; we did not take action to start a war,” declared President Donald Trump, speaking to reporters from his Mar-A-Lago resort in Florida as America hurtled toward a possible major and destructive military conflict. Neither his words Jan. 3, nor his actions made much sense. »

The Danger of the ‘ethno-nationalist’ state

by Bill Fletcher, Guest Columnist | Jan 7, 2020 - 12:46:58 PM

One of the most common features of right-wing populist and fascist movements is the demand for ethnic and/or racial purity. During the course of the 20th century we saw it in its most egregious forms in colonial and White minority regimes in the global South, and in the Nazi-led persecution and, later, Holocaust against the Jews. »

‘The Godfather of Harlem’ and the Corruption of Black History

by Demetric Muhammad-Guest Columnist- | Dec 31, 2019 - 9:22:40 AM

The motive of the entertainment industry today is to use entertainment as a weapon against the rise in youth activism that followed the killing of Mike Brown, Eric Garner and others, that ultimately gave birth to groups like Black Lives Matter. »

Lies, lies, lies: America’s presidents and the Afghan War

by The Final Call | Dec 23, 2019 - 3:07:46 PM

President Trump has lied so regularly and gas lit the American public so often that talk of lies barely raise an eyebrow at times. Lying seems to be the order of the day. But recent revelations about the war in Afghanistan uncovered by the Washington Post prove once again that lying and misleading is a core part of the way the American government operates. And, it doesn’t matter who is in the White House. »
