The Gantt Report – Swords of Violence

By Lucius Gantt

I want to begin this week’s column by thanking the readers and supporters of The Gantt Report. I truly appreciate your long time and dedicated readership.

Sadly, this may be the final time The Gantt Report will appear in newspapers and media outlets that do not value what is possibly the most widely read opinion column written by an independent Black journalist.

Dear Jeff Bezos, remember that charity begins at home

Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos asked for help giving away his billions. How about paying his workers a living wage?

Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos, soon to be the world’s richest man, needs our help spending his money.

Not on cars, houses, spaceships or overpriced grocery stores, mind you. Rather, on philanthropy.

Bezos hasn’t said precisely how much of his estimated $80bn net worth he plans to give away in the coming years. Unlike business titans such as Bill Gates, Warren Buffett and other members of the world’s 0.01 percent, who’ve declared their intention to give away the lion’s share of their vast wealth as part of “The Giving Pledge” project, Bezos has so far donated only a few tens of millions of dollars to charity.

Over 111 years, the boys reported physical and sexual abuse, forced labor, and some called it modern day slavery. The insanity of the treatment of boys in this school was well documented, but the system and culture always remained intact.

The Origin of Black Jesus

Formerly (How to Separate the Deified Jesus from the Jesus Within? (The Birth of Black Jesus)

There are a few people wondering why I advocate using the Lord’s Prayer even though I consider myself to be a follower of the Kamitic philosophy.  It is because as a shaman, I am concerned with what works because most of our ancestors were Christians and we come from a Christian background. But, due to misinterpretation, misrepresentation and misunderstanding about the ideas our ancestors had about Jesus Christ.  There is a lot of confusion circulating around.  This has led a number of us to turn our back on spirituality or worse become an atheist, which is totally out of sync with our nature and a true slap in our ancestors’ face.  So, let’s begin.

The Gantt Report – The White House Cat House

By Lucius Gantt
     When some men want to lie and cheat they go to a Cat House. A Cat House is a good place get freaky, grind and tap some behinds!
     Historically, international Cat Houses have been the destination of choice for ballers, crawlers, pick pockets, peddlers and passport carrying panhandlers.

Trump’s Other Russian Connection

Donald Trump just gave Putin a huge gift—and no one seems to have noticed.
