President Biden, Please Ignore the Former President

By Dr. Julianne Malveaux

By Julianne Malveaux — The previous President, also known as 45, or the Orange Man, or the Nutty Narcissist, kept our nation with his insanity for more than four years.  President Biden is best advised to ignore his predecessor and should not even stoop to mention his name.  Why not?  The nation, even his rabid supporters, know the former was out of line, out of order, and out of control. …

A Very Bad Day

By Dr. Julianne Malveaux

By Julianne Malveaux —  I have bad days, even very bad days, as we all do. Example. I woke up late on a day when I had an 8 am meeting. Most days, I’m up before 6, but this day I just blew it. So I’m in a rush, and the new pair of pantyhose runs at the touch of my unmanicured nail. Gotta find a new pair. Go out…

Black Women’s Organizations Matter

By Black Women in History, Dr. Julianne Malveaux

By Julianne Malveaux — March is Women’s History Month, and this month is the perfect time to uplift the Black women’s organizations that make such an essential difference in our lives.

Thanks to COVID, neither organization had the opportunity to celebrate in the way they…

Lessons From Texas

By Dr. Julianne Malveaux

By Julianne Malveaux — Texas was freezing, and Senator Ted Cruz was looking forward to sizzling his way to a Cancun vacation. People didn’t have drinking water and were advised to boil anything that came out of their faucets. That’s easy enough to do when you have no power. Some resorted to burning their furniture, fences, and anything else they could get their hands on. A woman and her two…

When Will Workers Get A Break?

By Dr. Julianne Malveaux

By Julianne Malveaux — Now that the impeachment trial of the 45th President is over, perhaps our legislators can turn their attention to working people, or more accurately, those who used to work and are not now working. There were 18 million more unemployment insurance claims now than a year ago, and nearly 10 million fewer jobs than before the pandemic. The first Friday report that the unemployment rate has…

What if Women Didn’t Talk?

By Dr. Julianne Malveaux

By Julianne Malveaux — Patriarchy baffles me as much as white supremacy does. How do the men, birthed by women, consider us inferior? When we raise our voices, we are irrational or hysterical. When we are emphatic, we are hostile. According to former Japanese Prime Minister Yoshiro Mori, we talk too much in meetings when we talk. Mori offered this weak excuse when questioned about the scarcity of women on…

Back to Normal? What’s Normal?

By Dr. Julianne Malveaux

By Julianne Malveaux — I got my first COVID vaccination last week. No big deal, an achy arm, but otherwise, just like a flu shot. The young lady who administered the shot smiled and said, “after you get your second shot, you can get back to normal.” I wanted to ask her what was normal, but the man in line behind me seemed impatient, so I smiled and made my…

What a Difference a Day Makes

By Dr. Julianne Malveaux

By Dr. Julianne Malveaux — It took only one day, one inauguration, for the shift between pessimism and optimism. Just one day to anticipate new opportunities, new possibilities. The skies opened up on the day that President Joe Biden and Vice-President Kamala Harris of the inauguration, and the sun of truth and light shone in. I had a mixtape running through my brain.

Was the insurrection an inside job?

By Dr. Julianne Malveaux

By Dr. Julianne Malveaux — If you watched the disgraceful invasion of the United States Capitol and the horrific destruction that took place on January 6, you observed a legion of limited-intelligence low-life louts. But you’d be mistaken if that’s all you thought of the Trump-incited mob. Those people could not have infiltrated the Capitol without the help of some “law enforcement” officers in the Capitol. Somebody had to open…
