What Makes This Person a Game Changer:  Wayne Bennett is the voice of the multi-award winning blog, The Field Negro.  While his blog is known for covering national affairs that affect Black Americans in an unconventional tone, The Field Negro is also known for letting its commenters voice their opinions on what is published on the blog without being censored.

  1. Field Negro is an interesting political website. The nice thing is FN does not restrict comments. Most of the comments are from those still love Obama…but at least The FN does give some space to the few who are on the opposite side.

  2. Just curious if anybody else out there had this guy as a Master in the Philadelphia Family Court System? What a disgrace it is to have this guy doing this kind of job that affects people’s financial well being. This guy couldn’t comprehend a letter that gave very simple instructions to terminate an existing order! Not once but twice!! The Philadelphia Family Court is the most corrupt,negligent, with nobody overseeing anything Court system in the country! This guy even took a letter from my opposing attorney after the case was heard! Would love to go on Fox News or 60 minutes to tell them how dumb some of these people in high places really are.
