Random Thoughts 

Dr. E. Faye Williams, Esq.

 In the past six months, I've frequently complained that developing events, consequential to the administration of #45, leave us inundated and overwhelmed with negative outcomes of his governance or lack thereof.  Weekly, I attempt to give an enlightened perspective on a newsworthy and timely topic; but I'm often conflicted and feel that selecting only one topic does my readers a disservice.

For anyone concerned with the national welfare, these past…

What Shall We Do 

Dr. E. Faye Williams

TriceEdneyWireService —There are few surprises in Washington, DC politics.  We've been reduced to exhausting ourselves determining when this Administration is being hyperbolic, using “alternative facts” or attempting to use “facts”—without adding “alternative” to their assertions.

Dr. E. Faye Williams

TriceEdneyWireService.com – One of my most important teaching activities was time spent in review with my classes.  My classroom experiences taught me that in every unit of instruction there were elements of the subject matter that would not be understood, would be misunderstood, would not be prioritized/ordered appropriately or forgotten.  The classroom review was an effective tool for test preparation and a determination of subject matter…

Black Women Made History 



Dr. E. Faye Williams, Esq.


In 2008 and again in 2012, Black women played a key role in electing President Barack Obama.  That was one of our proudest moments in history.  We came back again in 2016 and did all we could to save America. Unfortunately, we were not successful. 94 percent of us stood together and voted for the person we believed would be most helpful to our community. Unfortunately, bigotry and an unhealthy amount of sexism took over where even…

Why Black North Carolinians are not Showing up Early for Democrats:
Hillary Clinton’s Barack Obama Baggage


By Amos Jones


RALEIGH, N.C., Nov. 2, 2016 – The Democrats have known they are in hot water with a substantial portion of blacks this year, and in the last days of campaigning they are pulling out all the stops to mobilize this group for party standard-bearer Hillary Rodham Clinton.


Careful analysis of past elections shows that Democrats simply cannot win the key states housing large black…

Why Black Men Don't Go To Church 

‘If the conversion rate continues unchanged, Islam could become the dominant religion in Black urban areas by the year 2020,' according to researchers.

A demographic study of Black Muslims by C. Eric Lincoln  revealed some startling insights into who responded to Elijah Muhammad's message. The majority of those who joined the Nation of Islam were young, economically disadvantaged, African-American males from Christian backgrounds. Up to 80% of a typical congregation were between the ages of 17 and 35…

Baltimore Community Policing 

How to improve community policing ?

The Baltimore Police Department routinely violated the constitutional rights of citizens, used excessive force, and discriminated against African Americans, the U.S. Department of Justice said in a detailed investigation released Wednesday.

“The relationship between the Baltimore Police Department and many of the communities it serves is broken,” the 163-page report states. “Officers seemed to view themselves as controlling the city rather than as a part of the city…

Hip Hop's Impact On Your Church 

Michael W. Waters

On August 11, 1973, a party in the recreation room at 1520 Sedgwick Avenue in the South Bronx became the unlikely birthplace of a movement; hip hop. Forty years removed from its genesis, hip hop remains vibrant, influencing everything from linguistics and politics to music and fashion. To fully understand hip hop – and its historical and present-day contributions – it is important to note the context that shaped it and that ultimately catapulted it internationally.

On April 4, 1968, the…
