Rohn Kenyatta is a native Californian that has three children, all of them girls and believes that all of the world's problems could be solved if "we were all just good to children". He raises the youngest child alone and has since her birth. He runs a small consulting firm that provides corporate legal documentation to various governmental compliance agencies. His artcles and opinions have been published by numerous newspapers and media outlets; including The Los Angeles Sentinel, CNN, Black Agenda Report, OpEd News and Russia News Now (RNN).

The United States is a nation that has refused to examine and accept the damage that it has done to an entire race of people. A nation that constantly tells the Black Person in America to forget and "get over it" when the very names that most carry are those of people who kidnapped, murdered and raped them. Mr. Kenyatta often says: "I am here to destroy the myth that Black People in America are poorly read, poorly spoken and incapable of eloquence and advanced thought of any type. I am no man's minstrel nor a gladiator for his entertainment, but I am a pragmatic warrior. I make it my business to point out the obvious."

There is a reason why the United States has never formally apologized for the enslavement of Black People in America. Hurricane Katrina and what took place in New Orleans made it abundantly clear that Black People in America remain second class citizens and Black lives do not matter. Never have, as one can never overcome being a commodity instead of a human. That is a legacy that can not be easily jettisoned and there is no existing model to compare it to.

Proud, Black and DEMO-crat: Foxes-v-Wolves For Black People in America, the political landscape is yet, and still, another venue to which they have no home. No one has left them out in the cold more than white liberals who smile as Black People in America freeze. Truth be told.

"Heroes", 9/11, Assassinations of Melanic People and Why The "Terrorists" Won Has the War on Terror placed the United States in a more secure place in the world? Or has it made the United States more of a target, and was that its intent? Rohn Kenyatta aks these, and other, questions in this thought provoking column.

Tears for Fears: The Morning After The Night Before Denial is not a destination, it is a journey and Donald Trump is the man in the mirror. How will the U.S. population digest the seeming inevitability of Trump's second term with control of all three branches of government?

Why I just Can't "Get Over" Slavery Recently the author was asked by an editor "why can't Black and White People discuss the issue of race?" In this article, Rohn Kenyatta takes a sledge hammer to the issue; beginning with its cause. For one can not break through concrete with a feather.

The Absurdity of Singling Out Trump as a Racist Donald Trump is being villified as Racist in Chief. However, his headdress as Chieftain is well worn as the author poignantly points out in this scathing rebuke of, yet another, American hypocrisy.

Bernie Sanders, Little White Lies and Terrorism Definition Racism Finally the United States has called out its own, home grown terrorists; the original terrorists. Has it truly and sincerely done so? Or is this a continuance of the usual psycho-social masturbation that the United States regularly practices?

Congratulations to The Greatest Nation on Earth! American Execptionalism has been on display in all of its glory in Gilroy, California, in El Paso, Texas, and in Dayton, Ohio. Exceptional is an understatement for the ages.

Where Does Criticism of Israel End and "Anti-Semitism" Begin? In a land of "free speech", that hallowed tenent is truculently circumsised when it comes to the "Holy Land". The platitude of "free speech" becomes oddly non-existant in deference to this U.S. ally.

Black People in America Can Not Be Racist (As Much As They Might Like To Be) Racism is the United States drug of choice and as we find ourselves, as usual, in the intoxicating throes of this national dope the question must be asked: who is addicted and who is not?

Blackism: Human Savings Accounts Very few people truly understand the economics of U.S. slavery. This ignorance is willful, and academically perpetuated. In this article Rohn Kenyatta is as subtle as a freight train in confronting, and exposing, the issue.

Collusion, Conspiracy and Crickets The deafening silence regarding the United States meddling in foreign elections is historic and a well known fact. Americans are incapable of seeing the hypocrisy in their actions (unlike the rest of the world). For there are none so blind as those who refuse to see. The reckoning cometh nigh.
