A Vote Against Ignorance   BY CLARENCE BARR, II          Ron DeSantis can’t win the upcoming governor’s election.

A Mother’s Burden   BY CLARENCE BARR, II   When I was 13 years old my parents decided that they no longer wanted to be married to each other. And, as is typically the case in those types of situations, my mother ended up with sole custody. At the time, mom was still a young…

Clarence Barr's Reality On Ice-'Tears On A Rosary'

Clarence Barr’s Reality On Ice-‘Tears On A Rosary’

Tears On A Rosary   BY CLARENCE BARR, II   I have a question. Is there something about the Catholic priesthood that turns men into pedophiles or do pedophiles become priests because getting away with molesting children is a perk of the profession?

Clarence Barr’s Reality On Ice-‘This Is America’

This Is America   BY CLARENCE BARR, II   I have a question. When exactly did the idea of white men using the word n—– to refer to Black people become so shocking?

Clarence Barr’s Reality On Ice-‘Trump’s Bitter Pill’

Trump’s Bitter Pill   BY CLARENCE BARR, II         If there’s one thing I give Donald Trump credit for it’s that he’s consistent when it comes to spewing his B.S.

Clarence Barr’s Reality On Ice-‘They Keep Going Over The Edge’

They Keep Going Over The Edge   BY CLARENCE BARR, II   I think it’s safe to say that the Florida Mental hospital won’t be closing its doors anytime soon. In fact, at the rate we’re going, they may be forced to erect a new wing in order to accommodate its growing number of residents….
