The Decision to Handle Rejection

The Decision to Handle Rejection

Rev. Manson B. Johnson

The Big Idea: Endurance is the key to achieving challenging goals in life.“Man’s rejection can be God’s direction.  God sometimes uses the rejection of hateful people to move us to a new place or assignment–where we wouldn’t have thought of going on our own.

Tight North Carolina Race Could Determine Control of U.S. Senate

Written by Afrique I. Kilimanjaro, Special from The Carolina Peacemaker on Monday, 11 August 2014 16:05.

RALEIGH, N.C. (NNPA) – U.S. Senator Kay Hagan has been reaching out to communities and constituents across North Carolina galvanizing support for her re-election campaign. The Democratic Senator from North Carolina and her campaign are full steam ahead as they face Republican opponent, current N.C. Speaker of the House, Thom Tillis. The Tillis campaign, according to Hagan, is being aided by $20 million in out of state advertising spending from conservatives such as Charles and David Koch, and Republican political strategist Karl Rove. The Hagan campaign says, these out of state entities “believe North Carolina’s Senate seats can be bought.”

Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Returns $4.6 Billion to Consumers in 4 years

Written by Charlene Crowell on Monday, 11 August 2014 16:03.

(NNPA) – In recent days, many policymakers and analysts have noted the July 21 anniversary of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). It  marked the anniversary of President Obama signing the historic Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Act into law. The cornerstone of the law’s reform was the creation of a new bureau dedicated solely to ensuring that when it came to financial services, consumers would have a cop-on-the-beat, fighting for and ensuring transparency and fairness.

Changes to PLUS Loans May Help Blacks

Written by Freddie Allen Washington Correspondent on Monday, 11 August 2014 16:02.

WASHINGTON (NNPA) – This fall, the Department of Education plans to announce changes to PLUS loans that officials say will make it easier for parents to qualify for the financial aid program that thousands of Black college students rely on every semester. In an effort to combat a rising number of parent loan defaults in 2011, the department began to enforce more strict borrowing guidelines, a move that disproportionately affected Black parents, especially ones that lost homes and jobs and were burdened by high levels of debt incurred during the Great Recession.

Voter Suppression: The Countdown to Showdown

Written by Peter Grear on Friday, 08 August 2014 14:28.

Educate, Organize and Mobilize: It’s a little more than a year since the US Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and the countdown to the November General Election is underway.  As of August 8, 2014 there were 86 days left before the elections and voters are being mobilized.   I continue to wonder, as I look for signs, whether Black Voters will respond to the most dangerous threat to our Civil Rights in 50 years.  I have to wonder because if the response is there I don’t see it.  And, if I don’t see it I doubt very seriously if it is adequate.
