Washington, DC -- The National Council of Negro Women (NCNW) selected Dr. Johnnetta Betsch Cole as its chair and seventh president during the closing session of their 58th Biennial National Convention in Washington, D.C. Ms. Ingrid Saunders Jones, who served as NCNW's chair for more than six years, will continue to serve the organization as the immediate past chair.

"At this moment when I have the exceptional honor of beginning my service as the chair of our beloved National Council of Negro Women, I am thinking of a proverb from the Swahili Coast of that great continent that is the cradle of humanity: Africa," said Dr. Cole during her acceptance remarks.

"It says, it does no harm to be grateful. My heart is overflowing with gratitude for this honor to serve as the seventh president of this organization that has been a voice of and for Black women since it was founded in 1935 by the amazing and grace-filled Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune and lead so brilliantly and soulfully for more than 50 years by the unconquerable Dr. Dorothy Height."

The Crash of the US Economy is Coming, "Let the Buyer Beware," Caveat Emptor


Yes, emphatically speaking, the next financial crash of our United States of America (USA) economy is coming sooner than you think.  One would ask, “How does this opposite the editorial (op-ed) page writer think?”

Observably, this is how he thinks: Looking back over the last 11 years, our USA economy is still recovering from its "Great Recession of 2007- 2009."  Which simply means, the stock market observable failures (pseudo or artificial values in the equities and other financial sectors; suppressed income and wages, overvalued real estate, and accumulative generational debt), are still with us in my opinion.  In my view from the helm, the USA economy is also sailing rapidly toward overcrowded metropolitan traffic; congested gridlock with failing and outdated infrastructure, and increased taxation.  
Now, are you ready for this Opinion Ed writer's observations and predictions for the USA economy?  Simply stated, our present economic recovery is merely temporary at best, if we are not more careful.  Because, we have gone to an 8th deadly sin: impulsivity, along with instant gratification, which means excessively buying those things we really want; instead of what we really need.  For many of us, we truly believe, the seven deadly sins are as follows: envy, gluttony, greed, lust, pride, sloth, and wrath.  However, this writer feels and strongly believes impulsiveness will eventually crash the stock market and this semi-fragile economy.  Moreover, our rising national debt, according to various news sources, the USA increasing federal deficit of $779 billion is ever so threatening!
Truly, today's technology is a "blessing and a curse," when it comes to shopping online, rapid delivery services and "quick buying habits." Seriously, this type of human behavior festers septically our innate ability to persevere; instead, we consume more than we can ever pay for or charge on credit cards and other lines of credit.  In addition, we have completely saturated another generation with a cycle of student loan debt, rapidly increasing rents, ballooning mortgage and car payments, over-priced goods and services, and increasing medical bills for the young, the elderly and the dying.

DEMOS RELAUNCHES EMERGING VOICES FELLOWSHIP WITH SCHOLAR, JOURNALIST CALEB GAYLE


New York, NY  Demos, a progressive public policy organization, announced today that it has selected scholar and journalist Caleb J. Gayle as its Emerging Voices Fellow for 2018-2019. Mr. Gayle will write commentaries and investigative articles on efforts to restrict the voting rights of people of color in states across the country.

Mr. Gayle will deliver fresh evidence and perspectives on the disenfranchising and intimidation of voters, while raising awareness of the deplorable tactics that marginalize the votes of African Americans, Latinos and other people of color. Mr. Gayle's articles and essays have appeared in many publications, including The New York Times, New Republic, The Guardian, Boston Globe, Boston Magazine, The Three Penny Review, The Hill, The Daily Beast, and others.


"Restrictive voting tactics and laws are an incursion of the basic tenets of a democracy," said Mr. Gayle, noting that his grandparents, who came to the United States from Jamaica, always looked forward to voting. "It's been an ingrained component of what I conceive of as a well- functioning democracy, and any incursion on voting, for any person, means that our democracy is getting weaker. That's troubling. And, it should be troubling to everyone."
