Join us this Saturday, September 10th, to review the following:
On the local level, we have victory and defeat. First, brother Mamadu Diallo of the Bronx, who'd killed a man, who attacked his wife in their apartment, was not indicted by the Grand Jury. Interestingly, the man's family asked that he not be charged. While I am pleased by the decision, there's a part of me that aches, realizing the very likelihood that the man who was killed, Earl Nash, was suffering from mental illness. To that end, I pray that Allah forgives him of his sins and grants him paradise. I'm sure, many will disagree with me, but we must realize that many of our people are beset with the "demons", associated with mental illness.
On Labor Day in Brooklyn, at the J’ouvert celebration (hours before the grand West Indian Day Parade), 2 people were shot to death, while 2 others were injured. As I write, the debate rages, as to whether this activity needs to ended for good. To his "credit", Mayor Bill De Blasio dismissed such sentiments, suggesting that violence is a part of other NYC parades, which prompted sharp rebuke from supporters of the annual St. Patrick Day and Puerto Rican Day parades. In all fairness, there have never been instances of anyone getting SHOT at these or other NYC parades.
I must speak to the late, great conservative icon, Phyllis Schlafly, who seemingly singlehandedly, brought moral, cultural issues to the political forefront, the impact being felt, right up to today. Not surprisingly, no soulful statements from counter-culture icons, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
Join us to discuss these and other topics of the day and "days".
