People in Camps

One of saddest stories is how tons of babies and toddlers (in the hundreds) are being housed in at least 3 facilities in South Texas. They are suffering without their parents. They are experiencing emotional trauma that they will last a lifetime. Some children will never see their parents again. Trump certainly has no empathy. We know he has no empathy for my people (black people) and he certainly has no empathy for babies based upon their nationality. He even wants to decrease legal immigration which shows his massive xenophobia. Tons of people have spoken up and desire a real change and real compassion shown to fellow people. Activists have found that kids, who are young as 3 or 4 years old, face a judge without great legal representation. This is totally inhumane. This is America and this isn't new either. Decades ago, innocent Japanese people were forced into internment camps and we have modern internment camps. It's a shame. That is why we will continue to fight for justice. Trump is a notorious liar. MS-13 wasn't created in Central America. It was created in Southern California. Also, the immigrants are not equivalent to MS-13. They are desperate for survival. They are asylum seekers. Congress can make legislation that addresses this and Trump can issue a phone call today to end this massive separation of children from their parents right now. Trump wants to punish countries suffering when the Central American nations are victims of imperialist foreign policy. These human beings from those countries do represent their best. The situation of the border is a humanitarian crisis. Many of the migrants are turned away from the ports of entry. They are escaping horrendous conditions and they desire freedom and hope for the future. His rhetoric is totally xenophobic and he has no respect from me at all.

Hoteps and white supremacists are unison in their hatred of immigrants. They ask us black people why do we care? We care because we are human and an injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. They forget that many immigrants suffering are of black African descent too nationwide. Many of the haters lecture us on borders, but those borders existed as a product of conquest and imperialist aggression not because of some fairly deduced process organized among both sides in a peaceful fashion. Dinesh is a person with greatly bad character. He even tried to justify the war criminal Christopher Columbus. Trump always have a tendency to pardon far right wing racist extremists. He or Dinesh made evil statements about the students from the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting. He compared social welfare to a slavery plantation. He's a total hypocrite. He ignores the corruption shown by Republicans Nixon and Reagan.

She is one actress who has stood the test of time as being one of the greatest actresses in history. Her monumental kindness and humbleness has been acknowledged by a wide spectrum of human beings. Yesterday, it was her Birthday and she is Sister Phylicia Rashad. She was born in Houston, Texas and her sister is the famous dancer, producer, and actress Debbie Allen. Phylicia Rashad is also a singer and stage director as she is intimately involved in the art of theater. Right now, she is 70 years old. She graduated from the famous HBCU Howard University magna cum laude in 1970 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. She was in the theatrical plays of the Wiz, Dreamgirls, etc. Her album Josephine Superstar had a disco sound to it. Always giving advice and encouragement to the younger generation is part of her magnificent legacy. Supremely honest and dedicated to excellence, Phylicia Rashad appreciates justice. She has many children and we all love her wholesome spirit. She was the first black actress to win a Tony Award for her role in the Raisin the Sun play. She also star in the Raisin in the Sun movie (which came out in 2004) as well. She continues to outline great acting in theater plays to this very day. A diversity of TV shows and movies has found her playing a key role in showing the myriad of emotions and other forms of human expression. She is a living legend who continues to inspire humanity.
I wish Sister Phylicia Rashad a Great Birthday.

On this week, it has been 50 years since the Poor People's Campaign of Resurrection City (in D.C.) was shut down by government forces. The Poor People's Campaign (as promoted by Dr. King, Ralph Abernathy, and Mary Edelman) wanted billions of dollars to be used in America to end poverty once and for all. The growth of economic inequality continues and this issue of economic inequality is one of the most important political issues of the 21st century. 2050 is less than 35 years from now. It is our cause to fight for the same goals that heroic people fought back then. We are for democratic rights. Today, many people are involved in a modern day Poor People's Campaign too. Days ago was the Birthday of a living legend. Her name is Sister Ernestine Shepherd. Her life proves that faith is real and that hard work shown in the positive direction always causes blessings. She is now 82 years old and looks decades younger than her actual age. Also, she continues to help women constantly in fitness. She is a spiritual woman who is unashamed of her walk with God. That's admirable. Also, she is a wife, a mother, and a grandmother with a great husband. She is inspired by her late sister to exercise and help her neighbors for years. Always determined for achieving excellence, Ernestine Shepherd has ran marathons, won competitions, and published a book. She lives in Baltimore and Baltimore is home to so many strong, great people like many of my relatives. I visited Baltimore before in real life and I love its architecture and its people. Determined, Dedicated, and Disciplined is her motto and it's a great truth. Those three words are prerequisite in getting dreams or aspirations transformed into fruition. We congratulate anyone who loves their occupations and who make it their life's work to make the lives of others more enriched. I wish Sister Ernestine Shepherd more blessings.

As other great people have mentioned, yesterday was a great holiday. It is Juneteenth. It is a day of celebration of our black people against tyranny and slavery. It is a day that realizes that the Maafa was the worst slavery inflicted on people in human history while celebrating our glorious victory against the Confederate enemy. Also, it is a time of camaraderie, love of family, eating great food, and realizing the point that black liberation is very key in causing liberation for the human race in general. So, on this Juneteenth, we celebrate and realize that the struggle continues at the same time. In the end, we shall overcome and be victorious against injustice. Dancing, the arts, music, STEM fields, literature, theology, sociology, athletics, and other aspects of human living encompass greatly the black experience. We honor those unsung heroes making a difference in our current generation too. We are one as Brothers and Sisters regardless of our nationality, our income level, and our sex. The recent events, as shown in the news, makes the real truth known that children shouldn't be stripped from their parents and placed into camps. I love my black African American heritage as I am black and comely.
Black Lives Matter
We Shall Overcome.
Happy Juneteenth Day
