by James DeShay Today's political climate is very disturbing. Eight years ago I felt we had turned the corner and were prepared to come together as a nation. No longer divide by gender, race, and economic; but reality has hit. It seems the unity was short lived. The divisions of the past is becoming very visible in the presidential elections of 2016.
By James T. DeShay It is hard to believe but no matter how long we live there will be things that will baffle Us. I am sure you remember the old saying how can the pot call the kettle black? Donald Trump has the nerve to call Hillery Clinton a liar. This man does not worry if anything that come out of his month is true.
by Attorney taleph H. Davis Tonight, I am a loss for words and truly heartbroken upon learning of the death of my legal colleague and one of my constitutional mentors, local Orlando attorney C. Chad Cronon. I met Chad professionally some years back, shortly after I was admitted into the Florida Bar, at one of the criminal court's many morning hearings.
by Attorney Camara Williams Confession; I actually forgot the debate was happening on Saturday night until 48 hours ago (thank God for DVR). I would feel bad about this but I think that DNC chair Debbie Wasserman-Shultz planned it that way. These debate times are designed for low viewing and fewer criticism. We are already half way through the debate schedule and less than half of America is even tuned into the Democratic side.
By Attorney Camara Williams Can you believe we are five debates in and we still do not know if the Trump shield of invincibility will finally come down long enough for other candidates to expose his weakness, at this point Trumps aura is the deathstar, and his opponents are the rebel faction tasked with fighting him. With the tragedies happening in both Paris and then San Bernardino, it was easy to predict that National Security and the topic of terrorism will take center stage tonight.
by Attorney Camara Williams Let us first address the dynamic of the "African American Preacher" and his congregation. It has been well expounded upon that after reconstruction era all the way until the end of the civil rights movement in the 70's. The Black preacher was considered the moral mouthpiece, heart, leader and often times "oral" newspaper for the community.
