A winter night in Riverside may reach 35 degrees. To put into a perspective 35 degrees is the same temperature that water may freeze. Imagine being stuck outside in such a cold. Imagine living that reality for months.

Homelessness is a community issue of that deserves a much larger sentiment and dedication toward some resolve.

The homeless population and the dynamics that lead to it connote some very inaccurate assumptions by those who may be unaware. Not all homeless persons are alcoholics and drug abusers. Not all homeless people may live directly on the streets. Not all homeless people have bad hygiene and not all homeless people are bad people. Many are just as good of people as you or I.

The point is that Homeless persons are not just the hardest cases that we may see living directly on the street. The population of homeless persons
is much wider than and much broader than the average person may initial assume.

Homelessness consists of many different cases just as stressful psychologically.

Mark Anthony Howard “The Gritz”

Mark Anthony Howard “The Gritz” is the author of the 2014 release “The ABC’s of a Black Man’s Principles.”  Through many ups and downs and personal struggles,  Mark or “grits,” has found his true voice in his writing.  His many failures in ambitious persuance of his en·tre·pre·neur·i·al goals give him a practical perspective of how-to, and especially how-not-to in life.

His Gritty style of writing and strong convictions make his perspective a most interesting literary consideration.  The book “The ABC’s of a Black Man’s Principles” is Mark Anthony’s first and addresses a need for both collective and personal growth within the community of Black American Males.

The Book contains 46  principles which Mark Anthony writes definitively as reflections of his own quality.  

“I’ve really been through alot in my young lifetime.  Most people go through things and dismiss or omit the unpleasant emotions that they’ve  experienced.  I’ve been blessed with a curse of retention.  I am really able to reserve emotion and process thought into the application of beneficial lessons or principles.  This book is my first share of what I’ve always known of myself as a distinguished and orginal perspective.  I hope the consideration of my writing encourages the same personal growth in others that Ive experienced for myself.”

The book “The ABC’s of a Black Man’s Principles” is now available on with promise to be a bestseller in its social science/ specific -demographic/ Black studies categories.

Huey P. Newton –

Newton was born in Monroe, Louisiana. He was the youngest of seven children of Armelia Johnson and Walter Newton, a sharecropper and Baptist lay preacher. His parents named him after former Governor of Louisiana Huey Long. In 1945, the family migrated toOakland, California as part of the second wave of the Great Migration of African Americans out of the South to the Midwest and West.[4] The Newton family was quite poor and often relocated throughout the San Francisco Bay Area during Newton’s childhood. But, he said his family was close-knit, and he never went without food and shelter as a child. Growing up in Oakland, Newton stated that “[he] was made to feel ashamed of being black.”[4] In his autobiography, Revolutionary Suicide, he wrote,

“During those long years in Oakland public schools, I did not have one teacher who taught me anything relevant to my own life or experience. Not one instructor ever awoke in me a desire to learn more or to question or to explore the worlds of literature, science, and history. All they did was try to rob me of the sense of my own uniqueness and worth, and in the process nearly killed my urge to inquire.” Read the rest of this entry
