While baseball fans prepare to celebrate the 74th anniversary of Jackie Robinson breaking MLB’s color barrier on April 15, 1947, few people know of another rumored to beat Robinson to it 42 years earlier.
Almost 90 years before Martin Luther King Jr. made his five-day, 54-mile trek from Selma to Montgomery, William Clarence Matthews made his.
Born in Selma on January 7, 1877, Matthews lived with his two siblings, Fannie, the oldest, and Walter (or Buddy), the second oldest. His father died in the 1890s, and his family moved to Montgomery, Alabama.
Where did this rumor start?
In his seminal…
How the two-party system, corrupt politicians, and MSM seek to destroy the rights of the middle class and minorities.
I’m going to start this article by doing something which few writers suggest. I encourage everyone to consider this fiction until you research these items yourself. It is essential to challenge the information we take in and investigate content ourselves.
THE FAILURE OF THE TWO PARTY SYSTEM AND WHY IT NEEDS TO BE ELIMINATED
In September of 2020, I moved down South after living most of my life in the Northeast. COVID and unfortunate events surrounding family left me roaming between friends’ couches from the end of March until early September.
The one constant in my life since October 2005 was my Bichon Sammy. Sammy wasn’t just my dog; he understood my heart. He knew how much his presence in my life helped me during rough times.
People around me during those times knew I wouldn’t accept an invitation without Sammy. Many times I didn’t attend family gatherings if he wasn’t allowed. He needed…
When 2020 enters the realm of conversation, my immediate thoughts explode in disgust. Looking at the irreparable destruction caused to families, individuals, marriages, relationships, businesses, and trust overall, my already fractured view of society increases.
What goes through the mind of a person dealing with loss? Does that differ from hopelessness? How does that relate to depression? Does that mental process affect the brain and activity?
When dealing with emotions, rational thought evades most of us — at least temporarily (which is why suppressing a series of disappointments leads to resentment). …
I need to post something to stand up for the everyday nobodies like myself. The lower-middle-class, trampled on for years by corrupt politicians, profiteers looking to exploit the working class for their gain, elitists who look down on us due to color, sex, gender, religion, sexual preference, etc. Lobbyists who manipulate the so-called “representatives” we send to fight for us in our home districts. (Regardless of political affiliation).
What is occurring now across the country is so damn disturbing. What does it tell you when a Rasmussen poll (https://www.bizpacreview.com/2020/11/21/rasmussen-poll-20-30-of-democrats-believe-the-election-was-stolen-from-trump-998438/) shows 20–30 percent of DEMOCRATS feel the election was fraudulent?
While our country prepares to suffer through anxious days of uncertainty, confusion, anger, resentment and create further separation, with the final result creating bitterness, what an ideal time to introduce compromise!
We all come from different backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences. Despite knowing this basic concept, how many of us subject others to judgement not applied to ourselves? How often do we understand how our own concepts and conclusions came to exist?
Let’s start with the basics. We all deserve respect. We all desire recognition in what and where we dedicate our time and energy. What personality, achievement, financial reward, social…
Week Four of SEC Football brings us the most anticipated matchup of the season. Georgia invades Tuscaloosa this Saturday.
Even without the news today of Nick Saban testing positive for COVID-19, this game had everyone’s interest.
While not having the best football coach (college or pro) on the sideline will be a change, Alabama’s accountability system shouldn’t miss a beat. I’m certain knowing his greater access to critiquing their mistakes might help inspire his players.
#3 Georgia (3–0) at #2 Alabama (3–0) 8:00 PM EST
Strength vs. Strength
The highest-scoring offense (51.0 PPG) squares off against the nation’s second-ranked defense…
The college football world first met Joe Burrow in 2015 when he re-shirted at Ohio State during his freshman season. After throwing only 39 passes in 10 starts, Burrow transferred to LSU after realizing he would sit behind Dwayne Haskins in his junior season.
In 2018 Burrow started all 13 games for LSU, leading them to a 10–3 record and 40–32 victory over UCF in the Fiesta Bowl. During the season, Burrow struggled in losses against Florida and Alabama, completing 37 of 69 passes (53.6 percent) for 376 yards, 3 INT, and did not throw a TD. Overall, Burrow compiled…
