It’s no secret that black men are skilled athletes. While some may call it a stereotype, it is no less true. Significant achievements of black men in sports conform to the notion that they are naturally bigger, tougher and stronger. But the same thing that may give black men respect on the football field is met with fear on the street. Unfortunately, according to a study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, the world views black men as physically taller, heavier and stronger (and therefore more threatening) than white men even when the facts prove otherwise. These…

Persevere

Written by Thursday, March 09, 2017
On Wednesday, I was invited to tour the new and improved Centinela Hospital. A lot of positive changes have occurred since the hospital changed ownership, and this expansion is just one of them. Today, Centinela Hospital has a reputation for being one of the highest-rated health facilities in the area. Residents can be proud to claim the hospital as belonging to our city. In the 90s, residents had three nearby hospitals to go to: Centinela and Daniel Freeman in Inglewood, and Robert F. Kennedy in Hawthorne. The latter two were closed years ago, much to everyone’s disappointment. And while another…

While GOP leaders are pushing to roll out the new alternative to the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare by Easter, Democrats and some Republicans are saying “not so fast.” Critics say the Republican-sponsored healthcare bill, known as the American Health Care Act, would leave millions of lower income individuals without coverage. Currently, 20 million people have health coverage under Obamacare. About 1.2 million are enrolled in California. Subsidies from the federal government are used to…

To Sell or Not to Sell…That is the Question

Written by Thursday, March 02, 2017
By Glenda Brass, MBA There has been lots of speculation among homeowners in the Inglewood area about whether to sell or not. For some, the prospect of the impending stadium development has them paralyzed in anticipation of what they think might happen with values and the area. Many homeowners who need or want to move are torn and wondering if they can still move and simply maintain two residences. It’s a good question. Consider the…

You Haven’t Won Until It’s Done

Written by Thursday, March 02, 2017
On November 8th, millions of people were shocked beyond belief when Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election. All the polls indicated that she was sure to win. And even when she did win the popular vote over Donald Trump, she still lost the electoral vote, and therefore lost it all. On February 5th, the Atlanta Falcons surprised everybody, getting out way ahead of the favored New England Patriots, with an impressive halftime score of 28-3. At the end of the game, the Patriots came back to win it 34-28. On February 26th, “La La Land” was announced as the Best…

President’s Day Underscore Anti-Trump Sentiment

Written by Thursday, February 23, 2017
While schools, banks and government offices observe the holiday honoring our nation’s commanders-in-chief, President’s Day is, for most, lackluster. All that changed on Monday when thousands took to the streets in observance of “Not My President’s Day.” The national protest against Donald Trump’s policies and the man himself was a cry for help. They want elected leaders to stop the president from enacting new laws which they say are unconstitutional, such as repealing Obamacare, travel…
