Join Us: Write For BreakingBrown

Breaking Brown Facebook Cover

If you’re tired of the drivel that fills up the pages of many black news websites and publications, then you’ll be thrilled to learn that now you can play a key role in African-American news content creation.

BreakingBrown is currently transitioning from a closed site to become an open source platform. We’ve embarked upon the transformational journey of becoming the first black news site which aggregates news articles and editorials from African-Americans across the country, offering up original content on politics, business, culture, technology, media, local news, crime and other issues which impact the African-American community.

You need not be a professional writer to join the  BreakingBrown team, but we are looking for people who are interested in posting consistently and are passionate about what they’re writing about.

At present, BreakingBrown gets over 100,000 page views per month and has over 5,000 Facebook fans. Our growth has been 100% organic. If you’re interested in becoming a part of the solution and transforming black media, email Yvette Carnell at editor@BreakingBrown.com with the subject line “Write for BreakingBrown.”

We look forward to working with you to build a stronger and smarter black media platform!

I just came across this sight , may I shouldn't have !!!! All this talk is a bunch of crap ! Race should have nothing to do with this ! I have been and I am still in small biz , I enjoy what I do very much , it's not easy at all , I have lost my car , I have lost my house and wife which became an alcoholic and destroyed my confidence . But I kept my child and took the life chalange ! I was sleeping in my car for a year and still kept my daughter in private school with ten dollars left to my name . Picked up jobs in freezers and the food industry for two years with all minority's so I worked with all Hispanic and blacks great ppl they worked hard for the most part , but no most didn't go the extra mile they would complain about salary and working hard ! You see not me I worked harder than I'm supposed to made the company money ! So yes I advanced after a year ! I don't feel I'm owed anything in life like they complain about ! One more year I went back in biz and never worked so hard in my life and I prevailed ! Sent my daughter to a great university so proud ! Well I never collected a dime from the government because they suck also , when I lost everything they said I owe state tax 30,000 I didn't agree so they made it 60,000 so I was told I have to sign cause I couldn't afford a good attorney now it 450,000 lol ! It would have been better dealing with the mob ! Any way I do well now ! I don't think anyone should get government assistance unless they are crippled or a child needing education I'm sorry but if I did it anyone can ! It's a desease that keeps spreading from generation to generation ! I grew up working hard first generation American and that's a better sickness to have it works ! It's not race that thinking just can distroy someone's life ! I know many black and Hispanic doing great and from the first week you meet them you can tell ! Sorry for boring everybody !! Also the government is really it bad shape but that's anouther story ! And don't forget I did it in four years and there are many people better than me I'm sure !

I'm 58 years into this world and I can't believe what i'm seeing and hearing we have a Black president and our top cop Eric Holder and both turn a blind eye and a deaf ear,i'm out of Chicago but now live in Seattle and you can believe i remember the 60's and how the police systematicly destroy our information centers that at the time woke me up to what was really going on and cops did not act like Adam 12 since I've been growing up in amerika  I've notice no end to cop shows seems like every season we have a new cop show from the untochables to maimi vice to law and order,stalker and person of interest,yet I have not seen in reality anything like what happens on tv in reality I mean you as a black gets arrested and you can spend anywhere from a week to 6 months in jail just waiting to see a lawyer,cops are now in my oppenion out of control why is it that when cops now see a black he's got to figure out how he can escalate the situation in his favor of course to justified in what ever he or she does to shoot a man in a store with a toy gun or to pull a man from a car on the passenger side who was not driving and wife had to call 911 to get other cops to help them while their daugther films the who thing my veiw is is that cops only have three things they offer a black man an ass woping jail time and his death with impunity cause up till now i've never seen any white cops go to jail for killing a black man and don't be surprise of the out come for this Wilson cat either if Zimmerman got a free pass and he was only neighbor hood watch and was told not to follow or to engage and he did it anyway they did not even bring that up in the trial had I did that and disregarded what the police had told me I would be on Death row right now let a black man kill a seventeen year white boy under the same circumstances and see what happens to him,its like martin and malcolm never lived we in the age of JIM CROW if don't reconize it wake the hell up

@Johnw11 @Brazell thank you I'm not fully clear on these computers but I'm trying a lot of us my age are scare of this box we call a computer but if we don't learn it we will be left behind so forgive me atodds for not putting commas punctuations and so forth, pay attention to the people in the Gaza strip and see how they are treated and you will see similarities on how we are treated here as black men ,I mostly go on with my knowlege of my past and what I lived through in Chicago Il I moved there in may of 1968 if you know your history you'll know the powder keg had not blown completely up ,this is after Martin's Assassination and before Bobby's after that day June 6 1968 the whole world changed and chicago blew up they landed troops in Washinton Park so the southside would not be a problem , we had C5 ,Cid ,State troopers and Chicago pd and oh yes C5 was a division out of the Chicago pd but they rode around four deep in one unit unmarked ,if you had an encounter with them you had a 9 and 10 chance of surviving the encounter ,they were in my view the first true punkers cause if you did not bow down , if stood up for yourself you got your behind wup or shot to death depending on how bad the situation got ,now its a new game (can I talk to you ) is the thing and if you don't well the situation can become out of hand were seeing all the people who tech thats how the news is catching this stuff now but what of the people who don't have this tech how many have been at the hands of Mr jim crow their story never gets heard the ones you see on the news is nothing compared to the ones you don't see

@Brazell @Johnw11  You hang in there, sir. I admire your courage.

Don't worry about what ignorant "trolls" say. You are sharing your life experiences. That's always a good thing, from which others may benefit.

No one can benefit from an ignorant "troll."

Hang in there!
