Derek Jeter Becomes the First Black CEO of a Major League Baseball Team Says He's Fine With His Players Kneeling

October 23, 2017 - A group headed by 14-time MLB All-Star Derek Jeter and Florida businessman Bruce Sherman has completed its purchase of the Miami Marlins, a Major League Baseball team. Jeter, now a co-owner of the team, has also been named the team's first ever Black CEO. Will players kneeling during the national anthem be an issue? Not according to Jeter himself. He recently told the New York Daily News, "Everyone should be fine with that. They’re focused so much on the fact that they are kneeling as opposed to what they’re kneeling for."
He continued, "Peaceful protests are fine. You have your right to voice your opinion. As long as it’s a peaceful protest, everyone should be fine with that." Visit www.blog.blackbusiness.org for full article.

States that elected Donald Trump, including Florida, most affected by his health care decision

The Mayoral Morning After…

October 18, 2017 - This local election cycle has been remarkable in a number of ways. The Mayor’s race has set new highs (and lows) for money, misinformation and malice. Friends and even family members have split alliances among mayoral and city council candidates. Even President Obama has weighed in with an endorsement for Mayor Rick Kriseman. And throughout the campaign, social media has served up campaign news, and fake news, on a non-stop basis. But regardless of the election outcome, we must resolve to focus on the truly important issues that are impacting our community every day. Political campaigns come and go, but the morning after the election, our community will still be faced with significant challenges and opportunities that will determine our collective progress.
