I do not throw around the word great to much. Micheal Jordan was great. The late King Of Pop Micheal Jackson was great. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was great. Muhammad Ali was great. The late Whitney Houston was great. N.W.A was great. Former guest on “Music Inner City TV” Big Daddy Kane is great. Larry Bird was great. So many you can call great.
But a TRUE great person left us at the age of 86, Dr. Maya Angelou. When ever I saw a interview with her on TV I sat and listened. Because when she talked it was like going to school because I always learned something from this great African American lady.
Yes I was a little bothered when she came out and supported Hillary Clinton in 2008 instead of then Sen. Barack Obama. The first African American who had a chance to be President.
But she had her own reason. As did another great person “Magic” Johnson and another great businessman, Bob Johnson. But that did not stop me from having profound respect for Dr. Angelou. Her good friend and former guest on “M.I.C-TV” Oprah was not happy too because Ms. O was a huge supporter of Sen. Obama.
But anyway Dr. Maya Angelou was a towering force for African Americans. Just a flat out dynamic legendary person. A great great poet, a actor, a writer and much more. Maya would write a poem and read it and it will leave you crying. Just the way she delivered the poem. So emotional and so deep. So much thought put into it.
The world is a much better place because of the GREAT Dr. Angelou. That is for sure. RIP Dr. Angelou. We all love you. By the way I have to leave you with this. HEY YOUNG PEOPLE IF YOU HAVE NOT HEARD OF THIS GREAT PERSON…READ AND LEARN ABOUT THE GREAT DR. MAYA ANGELOU. Gordon Curvey

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey
As we all know by now, President Barack Obama won by a landslide re-election for four more years as President of The United States. And as a supporter I am very happy to see the President will get four more years. He has a lot of work to do to help folks obtain new jobs so they feed their families and pay their bills.
But what I am not happy about is the Republicans crying like big babies because Mitt Romney did not win the election. Have you seen the looks on their faces when they are being interviewed on CNN or MSNBC or Fox News when the discussion is about the President winning? The look very upset and mad.
So in that vain, we have the possible nomination of Susan Rice to replace current Secretary of State Hillary Clinton who is going to retire. But the folks on the right ain’t having it. They are fighting against her before the President can name his choice. And it has got out of hand.
The folks on the right are blaming Ms. Rice for saying lies etc on TV regarding the terrible and sad killings in Benghazi. The bottom line is Susan just spoke to what she was given to say. But the Republicans are blaming her for everything. This is wrong!
Sen. John McCain and many others on the right and of course Sean Hannity and Fox News are leading a terrible witch hunt against the highly intelligent and qualified Susan Rice. They refuse to back down.
In my opinion readers I have to say this. Many folks DO NOT want to see a African American President, a African American Attorney General and a possible African American Secretary of State. Let’s be real readers. I think I am right.
So it is VERY interesting to see who President Obama will nominate. Will it be Ms. Rice? Most people think so. If so, things will get very interesting for sure.
