Obama Haters Won’t Stop But He Keeps Rising

Black news from Pasadena - Editorial - Obama hatersAs America nears the end of the Obama years, there are those who just won't let go of their hatred of him.

Looking Back to Move Forward

African American news from Pasadena - Editorial - looking back to move forwardThe week began with my wife and I being honored by the Altadena NAACP with a Lifetime Achievement award. To the NAACP, our heartfelt thank you for noticing our work. In describing our work the NAACP used the words inspire, impact, influence and benefit the community, others, and each other. To that I can only say, I hope so. We have certainly worked hard to get here in what is our 25th year of publishing the Journal and our 52nd year of marriage, as of June 30, 2014. That is our real lifetime achievement. For that I say, thank you Miss Ruthie. Together we say, congratulations to Paul and Juanita DeVaughn on their receipt of the Community Service award for years of service they have given to the community. They have been married since 1950, a few more (12) years longer than Miss Ruthie and I.

For over thirty years, I have been suing the police for abuse of citizens. In 1968, the year I graduated from college, I was one of those young Black men who was beat-up by the police. That was before suing the police was the thing to do, and I was just glad to be alive, and not going to jail, and was able to put the event behind me.
