    The Ruckus Room - Recreation, REALLY!!!!!!

    in Current Events

    This is the message that was sent out yesterday!!!!!


    PLEASE BE ADVISED! THE MAYOR AND CITY COUNCIL ARE TALKING ABOUT ELIMINATING ALL CITY RECREATIONAL PROGRAMS, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO BASKETBALL, BASEBALL, FOOTBALL, SOCCER, SENIOR CITIZENS PROGRAMS AND ETC


    Last night at the City Council meeting there was an uproar from the residents of Paterson regarding the possilibility of funds for Recreation being cut, how is this even a thought? Paterson is over-run with violence and crime and cutting programs from recreation will only add to the problem. We don't have enough for our youth to do as it is and now the administration wants to add to the problem by taking what little is there and putting them out on the street with nothing to do.


    “This is not a recreation issue, this is a human issue, this is an issue about the future of our city,” said Benji Wimberly. “This is not about football, basketball, and after school programs, it’s about our future.”


    When youth lack recreation they will be often be “raising hell” on the streets, said Kenyatta Stewart. He said kids need recreational opportunities.


    “I don’t think any council member will support any cuts in recreation,” said Morris. He said he does not want to be accused of cutting programs for city youths.


    Councilman Kenneth Morris said putting $585,000 into the recreation budget will not be an easy task. Wimberly’s letter to the mayor and city council members requests half-million dollars to bring recreation funding to the same level it was 17 years ago.


    And as usual......


    Mayor Jose “Joey” Torres could not immediately be reached for comments; a message was left with his secretary.

    Stop The Killing, Start The Building Pt. 4

    in Current Events

    I don’t condone the violence on our streets or in our homes or work places. I believe that anyone that commits a violent act against another except in saving his own life or the life of someone else, should be punished under the laws of their country. Violence in the Black community is the result of being put in a controlled environment and all necessities taken away and we are forced to survive.  Anger builds up as we are denied real jobs that can pay for food, clothing, shelter, and recreation.  This feeling of hopelessness is passed down to the younger generations.  Alcohol and drugs are introduced as a anesthesia to numb the effects of the reality of their present situation of being homeless, no money, no food, but everyone can put on for a cheap drink or a bag of reggie (weed).  Parents and children smoking and drinking alcohol creates a powder keg with a short fuse.  Generic food and medicine are introduced into this controlled environment and we become #1 in all health issues.  Then you flood the community with quick kill automatic weapons of mass destruction and make the readily accessible.  Distrust is at an all-time high.  You can’t trust the doctor, the police, politicians, justice system or each other.  You can’t relate to most of them because they don’t look like you and they can’t begin to image what you are going through.  and if they did look like you, you won’t trust them. Frustration, hopelessness, and fear mounts.....................
