SHOULD THE NFL KNEEL

SHOULD NFL PLAYERS KNEEL

Some say it's not helping their cause and 

They are disrespecting the flag, the military, etc. 


They are not protesting the flag nor the anthem.  Like the Olympian members before them, namely, Tommie Smith and John Carlos, did back in the day with the simple gesture of the raising of their fists, they found a peaceful way to bring attention to their cause. 

It's interesting how those who are not the victims in a cause can tell victims who are deep-rooted in that cause how they should respond. 

As for disrespecting the flag or military - Need I remind everyone that more Black men fight in the military per capita than White males.  Obviously they respect the military.  Need I also remind everyone that it was Crispus Attucks, a Black man who fired the first shot, and was the first person killed in the 1770 Boston Massacre - We obviously respect this Country and it's flag.  We have fought, died, (still die), and physically, creatively and massively assisted in the building of this country.  We have always pledged our allegiance and saluted our flag for centuries just - for the most part - to be treated as second citizens who pay first class citizen taxes.

It's interesting to note how these same people will protest, pass laws, and allow Whites to protest the killing of their womb babies by abortion, or by passing laws that causes Whites to peacefully protest the killing of their family members by unfair in-effective health care, etc.  When whites protest whether by violence, i.e., running cars into people and killing them, or by peacefully protesting - their voices are heard.  But when Blacks finally ask for respect, they are called everything but a child of God, and met with all arrogant speed, defensive posturing, and at times excessive force.

For these past many decades, Blacks have been talking/complaining/begging/crying about their "babies" being killed under questionable circumstances, namely by those who are supposed to protect them, and the powers at be has not cared until these young men did something to bring attention to the cause in a non-violent intelligent manner.  I add most Americans, no matter their ethnicity, agree this is an important issue, if not addressed, will exacerbate. 

Now, I am an avid supporter of law enforcement having work with them as a part of my career for more than twenty years.  I have had direct professional and personal contact with Chiefs of Police who would do whatever they could not to have that conduct under their watch, but no matter how hard we try, I call it "the human element" comes into play.  The environment that some officers are raised into, or entered into as an adult supersedes that of staff regulations and mandates.  They "re-act" on those human elements.

The kneeling is a non-violent way to say it's time for the powers at be to cease callous denial and address these human elements.  The time it takes to give these young men a call, or time that should be spent respecting them, asking them: "What should I know" and "How can I help" is minuscule...  Better still, "treat people the way you want to be treated" is what I was taught. 

John Carlos, one of the Olympians who raised a fist-Hero
There are words to a song that is appropriate, and I paraphrase:  "When the killing of a Black Mother's son is as important as the killing of a White Mother's son..." that's when the non-violent protests on this issue will stop.

BILL MAHER -SOMEONE ASKED: Are You Offended?

Bill Maher - Are you Offended?

No, I'm not offended.  Bill Maher immediately said he was joking.  He has been an advocate for minority groups and varying opinions.  He has offered the viewing audience what other news outlets do not, and that is a voice for both sides.  And, besides Bill Maher, among others like Bill Clinton, Kevin Costner, have been given by many Blacks a "Ghetto Pass" (if you don't know what that means - ask somebody).  I admire that he knows what the term "House N..." means (in a joking fashion, of course.  Keep up the good work BILL MAHER.

BILL COSBY FOUND NOT GUILTY: Judge Tosses Law Suit

IT'S ABOUT TIME

NOW WHEN IS THE "COSBY SHOW" COMING BACK ON TELEVISION

If we want to talk about "witch hunts", this has been one of the worst I'veobserved in my  ...something years.

I can't be the judge of all the accusations, but I questioned most and disagreed with the PRESS making this a mockery.  I question my observations of how Black men are treated differently than others.  I.e., Bill O'Reilly.  Never once did they follow him night and day, call him every name in the book but a child of God --- and more importantly haul him in front of the camera in handcuffs.  This man never left the country and if asked, he would have voluntarily walked down to the police station.  

Never again should the press and people rush-to-judgment just as they obviously didn't for Bill O'Reilly, and allow Black men to settle their private law suits privately  like O'Reilly and others do.

It has long since been my belief that this was simply an avenue for the removal of his great television show that has been such an inspiration, example setting, image building and career advancing revolution for Black Citizens.

Congratulations on this news, Mr. Cosby, (Dr. Huxtable).  I hope you will continue your great work in the industry where it's needed by you and our great pioneer public figures.

Everyone visit and read my several blogs on this very important issue.  https://wdorn.blogspot.com

WEARING HAIR BRADES GETS BLACK GIRLS DETENTION

EDIT UPDATE  ---   I SEE THE PARENTS TOOK MY ADVICE ON HOW TO HANDLE THE ATTACK ON BLACK WOMEN'S HAIR -  Read my blog an see what the parents did
http://www.newsweek.com/wearing-braids-sends-black-girls-detention-malden-charter-school-608303





NOTE!  DRESS CODES ARE ILLEGAL UNLESS THEY ARE PAYING FOR THE UNIFORMS.

DRESS CODES ARE ADOPTED BUT NOT LEGAL




The parents and attorneys should write a letters to the school in question
And to their school district telling them several things listed below

THINGS PARENTS AND CITIZENS CAN DO

1.  ASK THE SCHOOL IF THEY ARE GOING TO PAY YOU TO GO TO THE HAIRDRESSER TO WEAR YOUR HAIR THE WAY THEY WANT YOU TO - AND THAT YOUR HAIR GROWS NATURALLY KINKY AND YOU HAVE TO PAY TO STRAIGHTEN IT - ASK "ARE YOU GOING TO PAY FOR THAT"?

THIS ARTICLE QUOTED "ANY UNNATURAL WAY"  - THIS IS KINKY HAIR'S NATURAL WAY - IDIOTS!

2.  Ask them to show you in the "District Rules", where they address hair styles.

3.  Tell them they must suspend/band/punish Whites and others if they wear braids (or one braid), and further tell THEM what hairstyles are forbidden for them and everyone else.

4.  The District rules must show the ONLY WAY THE STUDENTS CAN WEAR THEIR HAIR.

5.  Tell them ALL STUDENTS must be seen by the Superintendent before entering the prom doors as regards how the "District" will accept each student entering by getting hairstyle approval before entering prom room.

6.***GO TO THE SCHOOL DISTRICT OFFICE AS A GROUP OF PARENTS AND CITIZENS - DEMAND THE SCHOOL BOARD  PLACE THIS ISSUE ON THE BOARD'S NEXT AGENDA FOR URGENT HEARING.

I wrote a blog and several posts previously about  how 40 years ago friends were being fired from high powered positions because they were told how to wear their hair - and I was threatened about it, but you know i fought back and won - this is a NO! NO!

WHY MEN SHOULD HAVE TO PAY FOR PRENATAL CARE

Congressman John Shimkus Asks:


Why Should Men Pay For Prenatal Care



Here Are Some Reasons why these same-minded men should read this and listen to their constituents


FIRSTLY:

The Affordable Care Act requires all plans to cover maternity services.

Men should stop making women pregnant if they don't want to pay for their joy after the deed is done. 

We should make it a law:  if a man impregnates a woman or their wives again, he should medically have himself castrated so he would never have to pay for any health care, prenatal care, child support, child care, or any other expenses related to the child again. 

This is a comment I wrote after a same-minded legislator said we should make abortions illegal.  https-//www.facebook.co1151986
We should make it illegal for men to "desert" their children; which mean they should pay fair child support no matter what city or country the man runs to.
Before any father buys a new home or new boat, marry again, or have more children - their wages should be attached for every child they left behind... that's what "desert" means.  That's why women sometimes elect to have abortions because they know they won't get financial or parental help from the "baby daddy". 
WHY ARE THEY TOUTING THESE UN-HUMANISTIC CAUSES?

Your willingness to make men (yourselves) blameless, and not wanting to take any responsibility for these children you men enjoyed making - this creates a permanent second class citizenship. 

That's what establishing a government by oligarchy is - and that's unfortunate and just simply wrong - we can't do that.

They appear to be hoping minorities would procreate less.  

Well, gentlemen, let me go back before the era of successful birth control, when women were at the mercy of their husbands, their lying boyfriends, and their rapists.  CHECK YOUR FACTS.  More White women were having illegitimate children than other group. 

Dick Gregory was one of the most powerful leaders in the civil rights era.  Thank God he was not a premier leader or he would have been challenged and broken.  Take it from me, his voice was heard.  

On this issue, he had the most profound analysis that effected my self esteem and pride in my Black women. 

He analyzed back then:
  • Black women have the babies and the extended family raises the child.
  • White women HAVE ABORTION CHARGE CARDS. 
Today, there are more White women on welfare than any other racial group.  

So White women, are you ready to care for your children without help or support from these historically Muslim-tradition thinking men? 

When I 
visited a predominantly Muslim country in the early 90's, women still had to have, in essence, an honorary male citizenship in order to work because men were in control.  Let's not revert to that.  

We don't know what laws they will levy on to us if they get away with these two draconian laws:  
  • 1.  We don't have to take care of the babies you had better have for us because we want you to be under our dominate control - and we can't do that if you are independent and not on the poverty level, which is what women are relegated to after divorcing for the most part.
  • 2.  We can have as many wives and sets of children as we want and don't have to play a part in "your" children's lives - so we can move on to the next family.  Or, better yet:  Women, you have no financial choice but to accept our non-monogamy lifestyle.
