Stop Re-gentrification Make The ‘Hood’ Great Again

By Lucius Gantt

Nowadays it seems like everybody wants to make something great again. Russians are trying to make Moscow great again. Environmentalists are trying to make the planet great again. Financial institutions seek to make predatory lenders great again.

And, klansmen, neo-nazis, skinheads and conservative bigots are screaming make America great again!

I believe people of African descent in America and around the world should unite and make the ‘hood’ great again!

Figuratively speaking, Black neighborhoods everywhere should rise from the dead!

Let Black Kids Just Be Kids

George Zimmerman admitted at his 2012 bail hearing that he misjudged Trayvon Martin’s age when he killed him. “I thought he was a little bit younger than I am,” he said, meaning just under 28. But Trayvon was only 17.

What may be most tragic about Mr. Zimmerman’s miscalculation is that it’s widespread. To many people, black boys seem older than they are: In one study, people overestimated their ages by 4.5 years. This contributes to a false perception that black boys are less childlike than white boys.

“The Gantt Report Live” – Live TV Show

By Lucius Gantt

“The Gantt Report Live” is not a television show but it should be and it will be if I feel like putting the show together.

I felt it was necessary for me to write a column about a Gantt Report TV show after reading news and internet accounts about a proposed Black Television News Channel (BTNC).

Republicans Winning and Democrats No Plan or Platform

By Roger Caldwell

Democrats can never win in America, without the Black vote, and a progressive platform.

Trump and the Republicans are winning with poll numbers in the thirties, and the Democratic leadership has no strategy to change the trajectory of this administration. The Republicans control the House, the Senate and the Executive Branch, and there appears nothing the Democrats can do.

The Democrats can filibuster, resist, and obstruct the Republicans policies, but when it is time for a vote, the Republicans win. In the House they win by 24 votes, and in the Senate they win by 2 votes.
