The DICHOTOMIES, THEN SOLUTIONS! Podcast is finally complete, launched today, May 14, 2020. Anticipation has built into a crescendo. Excitement is in the air. Events are happening so fast within this pandemic society that there will always be a topic that needs to be corrected.
DTS is the platform for anyone who has a rational, executable solution for a societal problem to speak their piece to the world. We will also follow-up with that person; not just throw them to the wolves after the shock value wears off and the news cycles move inextricably forward. We want to know did it work or not. Your regular feedback on topics that interest you [we hope that’s all of them!] is crucial to providing the best content that we can.
So much time is spent in lamentations – crying about what’s wrong, who did what to whom, extreme reactionaries [not the new definition but the original definition – sitting on your butt until you move because of what someone else does, but not doing anything yourself]. Today, the time has run out for such mess. We are all about survival today, because someone thought we were expendable. They have a surprise coming.
Today in 2020, try to find a bank owned by people of color in any major city; maybe two or three. And when a Black-owned bank came out with a Harriet Tubman card last year, all we could do was critique the artwork, rather than support them with deposits. We have built cars, trucks, SUVs, boats, planes and trains for everyone else; however, are there any manufacturing plants for same that are owned and run by people of color in this country? I think not. There is one guy, I believe, in Nigeria who’s building beautiful SUVs. That’s not enough, considering the number of vehicles we purchase every year.
Right here, right now, is the time to FIX the problems, not whine about them any longer. Your opposition sure isn’t sitting around crying when something doesn’t go their way [except the Occupant, and he does something crazy when that happens]. The cavalry isn’t coming to save us, we have to save ourselves. If you don’t like what Zuckerberg is doing, get a group of programmers and start creating some competition. Why not? You were kicked out of Starbucks? Open your own coffee shop or support the one that the brother owns in your ‘hood. We give up our power much too easily, which is one of the primary reasons for what we go through.
The children with the guns live right down the street; the question then becomes, who’s running their households? We’re going to deal with them, too. They are us – they just went the wrong way. Are you thinking like the system and say they can’t be redeemed? Then you’re part of the problem. Someone redeemed you, so why do you think it can’t happen for them?
This is worth waiting for; I don’t believe there are any other broadcasts that offer selections as described above.

“Many people don’t focus enough on execution. If you make a commitment to get something done, you need to follow through on that commitment.” — Kenneth Chenault
