Sunday, September 28, 2014 | The Only True Free Credit Report - Federal Trade Commission Ad

The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) requires each of the nationwide credit reporting companies — Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion — to provide you with a free copy of your credit report, at your request, once every 12 months. The FCRA promotes the accuracy and privacy of information in the files of the nation’s credit reporting companies. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the nation’s consumer protection agency, enforces the FCRA with respect to credit reporting companies.

  A Warning About “Imposter” Websites

Only one website is authorized to fill orders for the free annual credit report you are entitled to under law — Other websites that claim to offer “free credit reports,” “free credit scores,” or “free credit monitoring” are not part of the legally mandated free annual credit report program. 
In some cases, the “free” product comes with strings attached. For example, some sites sign you up for a supposedly “free” service that converts to one you have to pay for after a trial period. If you don’t cancel during the trial period, you may be unwittingly agreeing to let the company start charging fees to your credit card.
Some “imposter” sites use terms like “free report” in their names; others have URLs that purposely misspell in the hope that you will mistype the name of the official site. Some of these “imposter” sites direct you to other sites that try to sell you something or collect your personal information. and the nationwide credit reporting companies will not send you an email asking for your personal information. If you get an email, see a pop-up ad, or get a phone call from someone claiming to be from or any of the three nationwide credit reporting companies, do not reply or click on any link in the message. It’s probably a scam. Forward any such email to the FTC at

Holder a fighter who would not cower (Opinion) -

Holder a fighter who would not cower (Opinion) -

Let be said, let it be heard and be know, Eric Holder is the one of the bravest and greatest Attorney General in history.

A proud Afro American who stood against the Neo-Confederates century long quest to deny a people humanity.

"People should understand that there's steel here, and I am resolved to
oppose any attempts to try to roll back the clock," Holder told CNN's Jeffrey Toobin in an article for The New Yorker.
"I wouldn't walk away from that speech," Holder told ABC News.
"I think we are still a nation that is too afraid to confront racial
issues," rarely engaging "one another across the color line [to] talk
about racial issues."
... in 2013, Issa and Holder talked over each other, with
the attorney general concluding, "That is inappropriate and is too
consistent with the way in which you conduct yourself as a member of
Congress. It's unacceptable, and it's shameful."
In another
back-and-forth, Holder trash-talked Gohmert with lines that could have
been taken from a comedy routine. "You don't want to go there, buddy.
You don't want to go there, OK?" "Good luck with your asparagus" as Holder ended the conversation.
He pressed Credit Suisse, and the Swiss bank eventually paid over $2.6 billion
to settle claims it was illegally helping wealthy Americans avoid
paying taxes. Holder took the lead in pushing banks and other financial
companies involved in the mortgage crisis to pay $25 billion to federal and state governments, a record civil settlement.  -
Let is be know Fast an Furious was a failed policy put in action by the Bush administration. Just as the Iraq war and the Financial crisis.

American Experience: The State of Mississippi in 1964 - Today, America's Reality

American Experience: The State of Mississippi in 1964

Events from the past that reflects today's unjust reality. The only difference, its no longer geographical, these policies permeates and enacted all over the nation in many forms. Note how White Citizen Council parallels the Tea Party and Republicans claims in which their rights/freedom to enslave or deny the rights of other is under threat by the Federal Government. The same propaganda disseminated via the Media by the Tea Party, Republicans and powerful elites  to justify denying Afro and Latino Americans the Right to Vote and Live without Fear of Death for none compliance.

State Sovereignty Commission which funded White Citizen Council is equivalent to the organizations like the Gestapo created by Hitler. Like today's use of the Police Force to promote State Sponsored Terrorism and the State justice system to incarcerate that refuse to comply . Every attempt to deny School funding and voting are action propagated by today's city and state councils in which anyone that support the advancement of Afro Americans are boycotted.

Get Light or Die Trying | Dr. Yaba Blay

- this Ghanaian woman’s death was caused by a type of skin cancer, which later spread to her lungs, and was attributed to her ritual practice of skin bleaching for more than 20 years of her adult life.

(Addo, 2000, 144)
  According to the CDC

The graph below shows that in 2011:
  •  Among men, black men had the highest rate of getting cancer, followed by white, Hispanic, Asian/Pacific Islander, and American Indian/Alaska Native men. 
  •  Among women, white women had the highest rate of getting cancer, followed by black, Hispanic, Asian/Pacific Islander, and American Indian/Alaska Native women.

Skin Bleaching, Self-Hatred, and “Colonial Mentality” | Dr. Yaba Blay

If one doesn't him or herself, neither will anyone else. Note the following form DR Yaba article.

...if the media indeed understands the colonial mentality, then they should
understand the power of dominant imagery to affect the consciousness of
the society. In the same way that the colonial order projected images
of Europeans and advertisements for European commodities in an effort to
construct and further validate a superior White identity, it appears
that in the press’s continual projection of European (read: White)
beauty ideals, that they too continue this legacy of White supremacy.
Yet it is skin bleachers who suffer from “colonial mentalities?”
Instead of asking women why they bleach, why aren’t we asking men why
they “prefer light skinned women?” Or why they feel emboldened to make
public statements about their preferences. - Dr. Yaba Blay

The following Punks and their ignorant cohorts of the Hip Hop Media Industry are a threat to the future of Afro Society. Every notice Rapper spend most of their time talking out the side of the necks about how though they are yet, at the same time running from the cops. The vast Majority speak to mindset of self destruction towards Afro Americans while instead of standing up, running from the man.

Women Attitude towards themselves reflect this cycle of the children they bare and ultimately the Punks they raise.
 Knowledge Is Key - Stop Supporting Those and Entities that Mocks the Most Valuable Entity In Your Life, Your Mother. Use your money and efforts to help yourself and your people, not a Self Destructive  Industry.

Why Are There So Many Black Athletes, Compared To Other Professions?

Why Are There So Many Black Athletes? - The Root

This topic arose in a recent conversation with a colleague. Compared to more critical career fields,  sports and entertainment is highly glamorized, especially within Afro American and people of color communities..

According to Dr. Gates, "The short answer: There aren’t!" many when compare to the total Afro American workforce, the percentage that are athletes is minimal. I would argue lots of waterfalls are being chased within the communities of interest among many who see the physical as the idea route to success as opposed to mind over body.

The following quotes clearly echoes the importance of family in planting the seeds of success and a need for a united effort to ensure the knowledge required to harvest the crops is decimated across the valley and above the mountain tops. .

 ...although my brother became an oral surgeon and I chose to become a
professor, it was our parents’ dreams and ambitions that took him to
dental school and me to Yale, and then to Cambridge, where I was
empowered to choose to become a different kind of doctor.  - 

As “the father of black nationalism,”
Martin Robison Delany, said all the way back in 1852, just over a
decade before emancipation: “Our elevation must be the result of
self-efforts, and work of our own hands. No other human power can
accomplish it.” - The Root

U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team: Cybersecurity needs its own CDC.

U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team: Cybersecurity needs its own CDC.

Let’s start treating cybersecurity like we treat public health.

As computer continue to emulate mankind the susceptible they become to the very Virus like ailments that afflict humans.  Unfortunately, like human Healthcare neither is high on the list for those that place profit over human existences. The corpus shall continue to seek greater profits while negating the level of protection needed to sustain humanity just as it ignores human Affordable Healthcare.

Knowledge is Key - we can imagine, build and protect it, we have the technology.
