GANTT

If you get thrown in the back of a paddy wagon and denied requested medical treatment, if you get lynched and hung, beaten and stomped, sodomized, choked or shot down by a law enforcement officer for a suspicious reason, it doesn’t matter what race, creed or color you are,...
The Gantt Report: Some people in America believe The White House has become the biggest Cat House in the world!

Ready for Persecution

The Gantt Report: It’s hard to be a do-gooder. Yes, it’s hard to be a freedom fighter, a freedom writer or a freedom rider!

Devilish Desperation

The Gantt Report: Even though devils like to kill innocent people they never want to have a fair fight...
The Gantt Report: Game recognizes game and I want young people to know how to investigate situations and come up with exclusives and scoops that other journalists can only parrot and copy...
Many Americans are beginning to feel that the 45th President of the United States is beginning to act as if he thinks he is a dictator...
It’s getting hot in here and I’m not talking about the Nelly rap song. When I write “in here” in this column, I’m talking about in the mean old world we live in. It’s Spring, 2017, and not even Summer yet but temperatures are rising and tempers are rising!

Depend on Yourself

African Americans complain a lot. So-called leaders are quick to blame the President, the Congress, the police, the bank, the judicial system or a variety of other institutions for personal or collective conditions in our communities...

America’s Black Sheep

I believe that today, more than ever before, America’s Black sheep, citizens of African descent living in, the United States, need a modern day shepherd that they can depend on! Nowadays, Black people don’t really have a leader anywhere in the world that is recognized and accepted by the masses as a true leader or shepherd of the “Black flock”...

Shaking the Black Head

Sisters went off for days...

Don’t Stop Resisting

African-Americans, seniors, mothers, women, the disabled and everybody else that wants and needs affordable health care must keep fighting for it.

That Church Cat

.....They want to be saved from that hood snake, the alley ways and the THOT spots!

Coffee And Pictures

The Gantt Report: There is nothing unusual about so-called Negro leaders being invited to state, federal and local government institutions to meet with newly elected politicians. Democrats do it. Republicans do it. Liberals do it. Conservatives do it. Politicians of all political persuasions and perspectives, at some time during the early...

Feeding the Hood

The Gantt Report: I’m probably paraphrasing a bit but Malcolm X once said something like, “A man can’t sit at the dinner table with an empty plate, watch everybody eat like a pig and call himself a diner”! In an economic sense, ever since the first person of African descent...

The Trump Trick

The Gantt Report: Sometimes a woman’s girlfriend will tell her, “I saw your man last night at the club hugging and kissing another woman!” When the woman confronts her man and asks questions about the allegation the man might say, “It wasn’t me. I let my friend use my car....

Rats on a Sinking Ship

The Gantt Report: A wharf rat is a large rat that is commonly found on wharves. These kinds of rats often sustain themselves by pilfering from warehouses near the seaside or from ships. When the rats board a ship, they don’t all line up like they were following the Pied...

Immigration Ignorance

The Gantt Report: Where would President Donald Trump, his ancestors, his wife, his business partners and other United States citizens of European descent be if Native Americans stood at the shores 400 years ago with bows and arrows and banned immigrants who wanted to come to America? Terrorism is defined...

Back In The Day Is Today

On January 20, 2017, in a lot of ways, African Americans will revisit their past. “Back in the day” will become today! Similar to the period of governmental and legal systems labeled “Jim Crow” (or nigger laws), it appears Black people in the United States today should consider preparing themselves...

Blacks and Fake News

The Gantt Report: At one time in history the only news that Black people could get was the news they got from Black media. Positive news articles back in the day about Black scholars, Black philosophers, Black entrepreneurs, Black socialites, Black entertainers, Black athletes and Black clergy could only...

Dating Donald

The Gantt Report: Internet dating sites are a quick way to see and consider men and women that appear to be relationship possibilities. It doesn’t take long, however, to realize that photos and information considered from afar, so to speak, are oftentimes far from looking and being good. To me, President Elect...

The Fidel Blacks Know

The Gantt Report: When politicians of any nation disagree with or hate another political leader the haters are quick to call their adversaries “thugs, tyrants or dictators.” Whenever western powers want to invade, colonize, rob or destroy, they justify it by calling the political leader of that country a despot. The way...

Political Dummies

The Gantt Report  After Hillary Clinton and many other Democratic candidates around the country suffered devastating defeats in 2016 elections, someone asked President Barack Obama what he wanted to do when President-Elect Donald Trump replaces him in the White House. I thought Obama would say that he was going back to...
A good shepherd takes care of his flock. The shepherd can lead his flock to a better pasture. He can feed his sheep. He can protect his sheep. He can heal his sheep when they are hurt or injured. If Black political and community leaders can be considered as our...

Obama X

The Gantt Report: President Barack Obama made quite a splash at a 2016 Congressional Black Caucus dinner. News reports say Obama gave his most fiery Presidential speech ever as he tried to fire up some political puppets before the upcoming fall elections. I say puppets because even if the President didn’t say...

Pharoah’s Police Force

The Gantt Report: I want to apologize in advance. This week I’m writing one of what I think is one of my most important columns but I am writing with a very heavy heart for a couple of reasons. First, I want to wish the Editor and Publisher of The Pensacola...

Easy to Lie

The Gantt Report: I own two businesses and I’m a Managing Partner in a third firm. At least 90% of the business people I deal with are perpetual liars! People wanting to trade in commodities lie about having, gold, silver, sugar or other commodities, they lie about having money to buy...

When People Try You

The Gantt Report: Stop getting mad when that man or woman who you’re dealing with tries you. All of us have the tendency to try people. It’s in our DNA. You cannot know how far you can go in life, in love or in business if you never take the chance...
The Gantt Report It’s 2016, an election year and also the year of the ballot or the beat down! If African Americans don’t stand up now and demand equal rights and justice for everybody living in the United States our parents, our children and our neighbors will continue to be...

The Crack Candidates

The Gantt Report Crack cocaine (crack) is a free base form of cocaine that can be smoked. It offers a short but intense high to smokers. The Manual of Adolescent Substance Abuse Treatment calls it the most "addictive" (effective) form of cocaine. A “crack candidate” is someone that is addicted to running for office! Every election year, political...

Parental Hatred

The Gantt Report I hope all of the mothers and fathers enjoyed their days of recognition in 2016. I feel sad and get mad when I see young people today that hate one or both of their parents! No one in the Black family is perfect. If you live long enough...
