Culture Club

I have some exciting news! No, Boy George didn’t ask me to sing with him on a remake of Karma Chameleon. Even better!!! I’ve been asked to be a regular contributor to a blog I much admire...Diversity Ink. I can’t even tell you how excited and honored I am to be asked to write with this group.

Earlier this year, my friend Malcolm of Pop Culture Dish opened Diversity Ink along with several other top notch bloggers. His hope for Diversity Ink is as follows:

“One of the reasons the racial divide continues is that members of a particular ethnicity may talk amongst each other about race issues, but not to members outside their race. Also, because race is such a sensitive issue, people are reluctant to come out in the open with any of their views, questions, etc. My hope is that Diversity Ink might lead to the bridging of the divide and the breaking down of some of these walls.”

My first contribution to Diversity Ink is entitled Black and Blue and it's about the traffic stop involving Ryan Moats and a Dallas police officer. Head on over there, check it out and let me know what you think!

Many people in America have diabetes both Type I and II. The most common misconception is that life insurance diabetes is not available when in fact that couldn’t be farther from the truth. What Life Insurance Companies care about is that a person’s diabetes are properly controlled. If they are controlled the applicant can purchase a traditional medically underwritten policy most at a Standard rate.
