The Glover Report: The Black Wall Street Awards: Dottie Hector is Among Honorees
To me, she exemplifies the black business professional in the 21st
century. Her son, Robert, and her daughter, Robin, are a part of an industry that also raised me: The funeral industry. They call us UKs, short for Undertakers’ Kids. You see, for the uninitiated, my father was a funeral director and mortician. Before he passed in ’03, he had proudly served as President of the club. To say the least, I was around it, or it was around me – all of my life.

The Glover Report: Black Political Progress Lacking in 2012 Maryland: Pushing Qualified, Committed Black Leadership
Be clear: I am for ALL people getting their due benefits. And that's exactly why I, as a servant of the community, push a black agenda.
Time and time again, when I have raised these pertinent concerns – I hear every excuse in the world as to why black folks cannot get their needs addressed. Every time, somebody else’s agenda supersedes ours. Like Fannie Lou Hamer said, "I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired." Read in Full >>

The Glover Report: What Would Dr. King Say Today? I Think He'd Tell Black Folks to Stand Up for Our Rights!
And while the Republican presidential candidates vet their platforms for the party’s nomination, they really and truly know that it’s all for naught. How quickly they have forgotten that the President’s first term was filled with cleaning up debacle after debacle that was primarily concocted by the previous presidential administration.
Be that as it may, black America is still in a world of trouble. Educationally, health wise, spiritually – I fear the masses of black folks in this country have become increasingly more disconnected than ever from the beautiful, bountiful and majestic history that inextricably binds our pasts – and a history that can also powerfully forge our future, if properly utilized.
Having a black president alone is never going to change black America. Black America has to change itself – for the better – so as to better control its destiny. This means the church, for one. And the masjid. It also means the black politician must be reconciled with the tradition of those who stood for something more than a paycheck. Read in Full >>
Guest Editorial: Senator Catherine Pugh's Letter Concerning Maryland Democratic Party Luncheon :: Steny Hoyer
Make no mistake; these sentiments have nothing to do with a preference for any candidate. This is about our values, respect and our contribution to the forum of Party unity. We need only take note of the contentious, political cannibalism on view with the republican candidates for President. Self interest and a disregard for their Party’s larger goal may very well prevent them from victory. Read in Full >>
