40 Years of Service
A Positive Moment

Question: What do Motown Records, Soft Sheen and Johnson Products have in common?

Answer: Each one of these companies were Black companies that were sold after they had become successful.

Now I did not name these companies because I wanted to hold anyone in particular up for criticism. Indeed, as I did research for this article; I even found some things to compliment. For instance, Barry Gordy stayed on and took an active role in running Motown after he sold it.

In the red-hot debate over immigration, myth too often takes the place of truth. It is easier to rouse fears than it is to find common ground. It is time to step back, take a deep breath and reflect before we react.

The truth is often distorted in ways that feed our divisions. For example, many contrast this generation of immigration with the Europeans who came at the beginning of the last century. That generation, we are told, came legally, whereas this generation of immigrants is coming illegally. That generation learned the language, whereas this one is writing the National Anthem in Spanish.
