By Attorney Natalie Jackson Now is the time to get on the #AndrewGillum train. Don't be sad that your candidate lost to Andrew Gillum in the primary. They were good candidates but they were not going to win the general election (the ultimate goal) but Andrew Gillum will win if we all rally behind him. The Democrats had 5 great candidates with solidly democrat platforms. However, only Andrew Gillum is a true progressive and not just a "new" progressive.
Democrats have to win back the "Bernie Democrats" and they have to motive the 3.5 million registered independent voters to actually vote democrat. As nice as all the other primary candidates were, they were not going to do that. Andrew Gillum is the only real choice if Democrats are serious about motivating old and new voters and winning Florida back. Andrew Gillum is the only real "other" in the race, and for once "other" is a great thing.

by James DeShay After not completing my commitment to not watching NFL last year, I have to face a league that views it's business as it's own entity. The truth is that the NFL belongs to everyone that is willing to make it a part of their personal dreams in millions of ways. People across the country see these teams as their own, and millions of kids dream of playing for one of them.
By Lawrence A Robinson During Sunday Worship Service this week, a Black church in Orlando took the daring position of announcing it’s endorsement of the ‘BootStrapping Project.’ The congregation was asked to take out their phones and log into a prerecorded 4 minute presentation.
Before worship service begin, the ushers added a page to each member's program with instructions on how to login to the online community announcement update site.
