Jay Harold and Morgan Bouldin get you in the mood for the Holidays. The love and joy of friends and family helped you overcome the many problems encountered throughout the year. Frederick Douglass1 talked about these issues years ago with this quote from his speech on the twenty-fourth anniversary of Emancipation in Washington D.C.
“Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is in an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob, and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe.”
Was Frederick Douglass talking about 2017? The potential dark days of President Donald J. Trump2 lie ahead. A quote from W.E.B. Du Bois3 (The Souls of Black Folk) also talks about the tough times ahead:
“Herein lies the tragedy of the age: not that men are poor—all men know something of poverty; not that men are wicked—who is good? Not that men are ignorant—what is truth? Nay, but that men know so little of men.”
Despite all the problems that lie ahead of us, the future is in your hands to control. The time is now for you to take control of your life. Jay Harold and Morgan Bouldin hope this music provides you some comfort.
After all, we just experienced the good a black man can do for America in President Obama4 Here’s a quote from Henry Eyring that reflects Barack Obama’s attitude:
“Let us consider the nature of true greatness in men. The people who can catch hold of men’s minds and feelings and inspire them to do things bigger than themselves are the people who are remembered in history. . . . those who stir feelings and imagination and make men struggle toward perfection.”
Trump can’t stop thinking negatively about President Obama in Dec. 2017
President Donald Trump isn’t convinced Barack Obama was born in the United States after all.
“One senator who listened as the president revived his doubts about Mr. Obama’s birth certificate chuckled on Tuesday as recalled the conversation. The president, he said, has had a hard time letting go of his claim that Mr. Obama was not born in the United States. The senator asked not to be named to discuss private conversations.”
