TONIGHT: Sat April 25, 2015 on NU Day "Justice For Rekia Boyd"
Don't let another get away with out right MURDER...
Darren Savin the off duty police officier who shot 22 year old Rekia Boyd in the head after he fired rounds into a park in Chicago filled with young Black females and males has been acquitted. Many ask, why and how could this be? And why is it that when it comes to the murder of Black women and girls, why is there so little said and less even done; thus such a minimum outcry for Justice We must also take a closer look at the increase of abuses that are now being placed upon the seniors/elders in the Black/African family and community. And ask, what can we do must we do to stop it. Tonight, as we examine the killing of Rekia Boyd's and other murders of Black females by police we will aslo look closer at the overall acceptance of gender related violations of African/Black women and girls in our communities and worldwide. Also: Updates on Mumia Abu Jamal. Actions Must be Take NOW !!! AND: From the "WE CHARGE GENOCIDE" Projecr Eugenics used on Black women here in the US during the last 50 years and presently today in Israel.
Schools are no longer a path to cultivation and a life of the mind; they are on a path of a job. Along the way, as schools became a training ground for corps of workers, they also became a means of furthering national interests. The debate about schools had become part of the debate about national power. Which brings us to the twenty-first century.
When George W. Bush announced No Child Left Behind (NCLB), his purported intention was to encourage a set of practices and institute a set of assessments that would ensure every child got the same good start at school. Implicit in that formulation was the now familiar premise that it was up to schools to close the income gap between the rich and the poor. In its most beneficent form, it could have made a powerful difference in the lives of many children. If NCLB had ensured that all kids would learn how to read and that no child would become disenchanted enough to drop out, it might have been wonderful. But that’s not how NCLB played out.
Within just a few years, teachers were rushing to make sure that each child got a higher score on the standardized tests than he or she had gotten the year before. School superintendents also felt compelled to see to it that their schools got higher scores every year. What had been promoted as a means of ensuring that all children received the fruits of our educational system became a relentless push toward improved test scores. With each year, more and more focus was on the scores themselves and less on the education the scores were intended to measure. At the national level, politicians threatened that if we didn’t educate everyone, once again our country might fall behind. The conversation was less about giving everyone access to reading, thoughtful engagement in civic life, or the pleasures of ideas, and much more about seeing to it that everyone could earn a decent wage.
Yes, you read that right. We're talking stretch marks. If you've had a child, fibroids, or weight gain/loss they're probably there. Some of us call it "the pooch".Join Tanya and ShyRosalind for the lowdown on this condition.
On Christian television, radio and other media, I am constantly hearing the message- something like, "Jesus is coming. Get ready!" This is in fact a Biblical message, and the urgency they felt 2,000 years ago when sharing this same "get ready" message is not much different from what we feel today! And yes, He is coming back! What a glorious day!. But the greater need for the Christian message, most pointedly, the message of salvation through Jesus Christ, is a message for this very day; it is one that must be declared now! The salvation of Jesus Christ brings hope, light and life into people's lives right where they are, in their despair and in their flawed and myopic self-diagnosis and ineffective self-medication.
Above all of this, the book of Hebrews says, basically: A person dies once, and then faces judgment. The odds have it that we, and people we know and love, will go before Jesus comes. Paul said to be absent from thje body is to be present with the Lord. Other Scripture implies that the dead wait for the return of the Lord, who will raise them up to their eternal reward. Whatever the mystery of this, it is only in our mortal lifetime that we have the opportunity to accept Christ's salvatoin, and to share Christ's salvation!!! This is urgent!!!
Finally, those not of the faith and those who contend against the faith, will take people away from the truth. They ask people to consider other "truth," to "imagine" realities different from what the Bible says. And whether intentionally or not, people often imagine themselves straight to Hell. Jesus said the way that leads to life is narrow, and few find it. Helping people find that path, getting them out of the world's philosophical and ideological traps, so they don't miss Heaven, is urgent!
We have our first Democratic nomination...Hilary Clinton. I don't think this was such a big surprise. What was her first political move; making the case for CEO pay vs middle class pay. She goes to Chipolte and forgets to leave a tip. I have heard all the arguments that Chipolte is not the kind of place where you leave a tip. Neither is Subway but if they have a tip jar I leave a tip. Since she is championing the middle class and better pay you would think leaving a tip would have been the first thing she would have done. I can't believe that no one in her camp bothered to do it or even mention it to her to do. I have been told that politics is more about public perception than the actual platform. We have a CEO in Seattle who has decided to take a pay cut so his employees can receive better pay. I don't have a problem since it is his company and he wants to provide an incentive to maintain his good employees but it sends the wrong idea to minimum wage workers who think they are worth more than their skills indicate. There have been other police involved shootings and people are marching for justice. You know how I feel about that but there are a few instances where I can see it being justified.
