SENIORS AGAINST A FEARFUL ENVIRONMENT
"Seniors Against a Fearful Environment (SAFE), a nonprofit corporation, was begun by the Black Panther Party at the request of a group of senior citizens for the purpose of preventing muggings and attacks upon the elderly, particularlywhen they go out to cash their meager social security or pension checks. Prior to approaching the Black Panther Party, the seniors had gone to the Oakland Police Department to request protection. There the seniors were told, to their dismay and outrage, that they "should walk close to the curb" in the future. Mrs. Van Frank, founder of the East Bay Legislative Council of Senior Citizens and the state of California's Outstanding Senior Citizen for 1971, commenting on the dangers experienced by the senior citi zens, has remarked: "The fear engendered among us old people by these mug gings almost makes us prisoners in our own homes."
A section of a recent funding proposal for the SAFE Program substantiates these claims. A comparative crime study was done over a period of six weeks (August 21 to October 1, 1972) and details conclusively that the age of the victim does bear a de nite relationship to the type ofo ense committed. Ofthe com bined total of 249 victims of strong-arm robbery and purse-snatching, 48 per cent ofthe victims (118) were overthe age of y. During this same period, only 13 percent of complainants in armed robbery cases fell into the senior citizen category. The conclusion, then, is that an elderly person is more likely to be physically attacked, whereas the younger, more agile person, who is more able to a defend his- or herself, will more likely be the victim of an armed assault. The fact has also been established that 33 percent of all crimes committed in the city of Oakland are committed against senior citizens."
A recent Motley Fool essay by Morgan Housel raises a question we have asked many times before: Why Does Pessimism Sound So Smart? (Especially when things are so good.)
Housel suggests several possible reasons:
1. Optimism appears oblivious to risks, so by default pessimism looks more intelligent.
2. Pessimism shows that not everything is moving in the right direction, which helps you rationalize the personal shortcomings we all have.
3. Pessimism requires action, whereas optimism means staying the course.
4. Optimism sounds like a sales pitch, while pessimism sounds like someone trying to help you.
5. Pessimists extrapolate present trends without accounting for how reliably markets adapt.
Generally, pessimism benefits from being both more serious than optimism and way cooler.
But that doesn't mean it's the right way to look at things!
Hosts Phil Bowermaster and stephen Gordon provide numerous examples of how the pessimists get it wrong time after time, and why optimism is the most realistic and, yes, serious way to approach the world.

What exactly is the Spiritual stance of the Black Panther Party? THE SON OF MAN TEMPLE was created by Huey P. Newton which had a purpose in the spiritual lives of the Panthers through the acceptance of all, but mandated no religious preference. It is stated as follows by Huey in the “STATEMENT OF PURPOSE”
“We have always hoped that we could establish a place in our community where hundreds of ideas could grow and flourish, where people could feel free to say and do the things that seemed most natural to them. The Son of Man Temple was created for that purpose, to serve in humankind’s development.
However, the place in which we come together to espresso our humanity is not a church in the most traditional sense. We do not practice a religion; we are not Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu, or Moslem. We do not honor one God or one reverend. This does not mean that we negate any religion; we all have differing philosophies and jews of our world. We are all part of everything and it is a part of each of us.
Our belief is that every human being has the right to be free. We can all agree that we are not. Therefore, we come together to express our agreement on the belief every Sunday at the Son of Man Temple. It is a place where we can come to discover and learn. If we begin the week with this kind of unity and understanding, we can carry through each day our concern and an enthusiastic felling about our survival and our freedom.
The ways in which we express this agreement about our desire to break away from our common problems—oppression—may differ. Some of us might sing or dance about it, some of us might play music about it, or some of us might speak about various aspects of our problem. It does not matter what we do if it is done with sincerity and in our people’s interest." Huey P. Newton
