This book consists of seventy articles written about items in the daily news. They are 700 to 1,000 words each. The articles consider aspects of how Blacks are going backward rather than forward: educationally, politically, spiritually, socially, psychologically, and economically. Ideas were germinated from the Internet, TV, magazines, newspapers, and a lifetime of experiencing trials and tribulations. Most of these articles were my own creations. Some of the ideas are personal while some are more public, but all are captivating.
