Shouts out to Nathaniel Friedman of GQ.com for giving me some optimism on what can occur in the NBA this season. The scenario not only would shake up two teams, but also may give an outside chance of another team making the NBA Finals besides the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors.

By: Jarrod Horton

Staff Writer

The economic plan of Elijah Muhammad was something that was in full fledge during the 1960’S and 70’s. The Nation of Islam were the owners of several businesses, including a farm where they grew they own food. While he was a member of Nation of Islam, Malcolm X advocated these issues during his speeches. Not only did he talk about economic separation, but also political and social separation for Black people. Before his death, Malcolm modified his stance into a Pan-Africa point of view. He stressed the need for all Black people to unite worldwide. A lot of people associate Malcolm X with the picture of him standing at his window with a shotgun. They attribute his “Ballot or the Bullet” speech as the epitome of ideology. Read More

So You Mean to Tell Me Clair Huxtable (Phylicia Rashad) Never Won A Golden Globe….You Know That Ain’t Right!!

By: Jarrod Horton

Staff Writer

I first want to say congratulations to Tracee Ellis Ross on winning a Golden Globe Award last night. In doing so she became the first Black woman in 35 years to win the award in a TV Comedy or Musical. That feat deserves praise, but the people who have been passing this award should be shameful. You mean in 35 years, their committee haven’t found any Black actress of this award. What about Nell Carter from ‘Gimmie A Break?‘ What about Ella Joyce, who was Charles Dutton’s wife in the show Roc? What about Tisha Campbell in her roles on Martin and My Wife and Kids? And if that wasn’t good enough’ what about Phylicia Rashad in her role as Clair Huxtable on The Cosby Show?

Ironically enough, Phylicia Rashad sister, Debbie Allen, was the last Black woman to win the award. Her role in the TV show Fame, got her the award in 1982.

I don’t remember that much about that show, but I’m sure other shows with Black actresses have been comparable. I didn’t watch the Golden Globes last night and I can’t tell you the last time that I have watch the award show. Based on their history of disregarding Black actresses on television; it seems like the only thing I been missing is a prejudice award show.
