There is a lot of political news going on. Right now, the Pennsylvania GOP primary is in a tight race between Oz and McCormick. Barnette is trailing in third place after a final surge. Pennsylvania Lt. Governor John Fetterman is recovering after the stroke. Fetterman defeated moderate Conor Lamb as it's a victory for progressive Democrats. North Carolina Rep. Madison Cawthorn lost his primary in the GOP. He was supported by Trump proving that Trump isn't enough to promote Madison (who is an extremist and a bigot). The election denier Mastriano won the GOP primary for the Pennsylvania gubernatorial primary. He will face the Democrat Josh Sapiro, the current state attorney general, in November. Shapiro is right to say that Mastriano is an extremist who wants to take away people's rights. Mastriano spent more than $3,000 from his campaign account to charter buses to Washington, D>C. to promote the Stop the Steal hate rally on January 6, 2021. The moderate Democrat Kurt Schrader voted against the American Rescue Plan, and he is facing the progressive candidate McLeod-Skinner in Oregon out west. We live in important times where we have a choice between a multicultural democratic American society or fascism. There is no other option. There are our choices. Either we have justice or not. We have to do our parts to defeat fascism worldwide as our ancestors fought back against injustices decades and centuries ago.


FOX News is lower than low including their puppet Tucker Carlson. Carlson said the lie that racism had nothing to do with the Buffalo shooting. Carlson blamed mental illness, Biden, and progressives for it. He is a disgrace. The murderer was a person who wrote a manifesto detailing his bigotry and racism against black people. He took the lives of 10 African Americans in a brutal fashion. The victims' families will suffer pain for the rest of their lives. This person Carlson wants to trivialize their deaths for the sake of promoting the known lie of replacement theory. Confronting structural racism is necessary. I do agree with President Biden that anyone silent on white racism is complicit in it. FOX News is complicit in allowing fascist propaganda to spread in the world. Many in the GOP leadership are complicit in spreading racism and xenophobia overtly. That is why Buffalo is owed more respect than the sick rhetoric from FOX News. The victims were some of the greatest men and women of our generation. They were parents, family members, and loved life. Their lives should always motivate us to do better in our own lives.



The Buffalo shooting and other events are realities. We have seen the Republican Party be not even more reactionary. It has been more fascistic. President Biden will be going to Buffalo today to speak on the fascist gunman who murdered 10 African Americans at a supermarket on Buffalo's east side on Saturday. The Republican Party is so extreme that many of its members advance racist, xenophobic, and anti-Semitic rhetoric. Payton Gendron, the murderer, had a 180-page manifesto filled with anti-Semitism and anti-black racism. The words in it were heavily copied by the Neo-Nazi fascist shooter Anders Breivik, who murdered 77 people in Norway. The gunman in Buffalo was never a "lone wolf," and he was part of an international fascist movement. Tucker Carlson believed in the false replacement theory view just like Gendron. Republicans like Matt Gaetz, Scott Perry, and Charlie Kirk believe in the racist replacement lie. Fascists on January 6, 2021, attempted a coup d'état against the American government. Trump agitated for the insurrection too. The GOP movement blames migrants and immigrants in general for issues in America in a bigoted way. They want to promote the anti-democratic Title 42, they have promoted the banning of books, they support voter suppression efforts, and they have whitewashed American history. Many fascists tried to kidnap or kill Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer.


The act of terrorism in Buffalo, New York is a political crime, a hate crime, and an act of terrorism. The community is hurting on an extreme level. First, it is clear that the far-right white racist murdered mothers, grandmothers, fathers, and other heroes who were just living their lives. This tragedy is certainly a wake-up call that societies worldwide must confront racism, economic oppression, and xenophobia if the world seeks to realize justice for all for real. Words are needed, but words aren't enough. We certainly have to be better people in our daily lives to not tolerate hate speech, to promote laws that advance justice, and end structural injustices period. That means poor and oppressed communities need resources, institutions, and other policies that advance racial and economic justice. That means we have universal healthcare and an end to racial profiling. That means reparations for black Americans that most African Americans support explicitly. This hatred has been enabled by many GOP leaders who advance such hate speech. Even Liz Cheney is right to say this. Brian Babin of Texas promoted the replacement theory lie. Scott Perry has promoted that lie too along with Ron Johnson of Wisconsin. Elise Stefanik has lied about migrant babies too.



Yesterday was the Birthday of Sister Cynda Williams, and she is 57 years old. She is a famous American actress being part of TV shows and movies. She graduated from Ball State University. Many people know her as being a prominent singer. She was born in Chicago. Williams was raised in the Pullman neighborhood of the south side of Chicago. She lived in Indiana for a while, where she sang in her grandfather's church. She was in movies like Mo' Better Bules in 1990, On False Move, and Turning Point. She loves her child. I wish Sister Cynda Williams more Blessings.

Cultural Facts.

 

 



There are many people on my paternal side of the family who are related to my 5th great grandfather named Benjamin Brickhouse I (b. 1750). He married a woman named Polly Brickhouse (b. 1760).

All of these children are my 3 cousins. 

 




On my mother's side Charles Peeples and Fannie Brown had a daughter named Lizzie Peeples (1887-1964). Charles and Fannie were my 2nd great-grandparents. Lizzie Peeples married twice.

There are tons of Winter Olympic events that have stood the test of time. Bonnie Blair during the games in Calgary, Albertville, and Lillehammer collected six medals. She won the top spot in both the 500m and 1,000m speed skating races in 1992 and in 1994. She was one of the greatest speed skating athletes in history. Hermann Maier overcame a crash to win gold at the Olympics in Nagano in 1998. He won gold in the giant slalom and Super G games. There was the Forgotten Miracle in 1960 when the U.S. ice hockey team defeated Canada for Olympic gold. The U.S. came into the games as severe underdogs who some have said didn't have a chance against the Soviet Union and Canada. Yet, the naysayers were wrong creating one of the greatest Olympic triumphs in history. The U.S. repeated the feat in 1980. Frenchman Jean-Claude Killy swept the alpine skiing events at the 1968 Olympics. Nancy Kerrigan won silver during the 1994 Olympic Games in Lillehammer despite being assaulted by Tonya Harding's ex-husband. 

 


The racist terrorist attack on black people (including 2 white people) via a vicious hate crime shows us that the evil of racism must be condemned. It must be eradicated completely. The murderer had multiple 30-round magazines. The murderer had a 180-page manifesto that promoted the evil myth of replacement theory. This lie teaches the myth that there is a conspiracy by certain people to eliminate the white population from the face of the Earth. The murderers hated black people, Jewish people, and immigrants as shown in his wicked manifesto. He killed innocent people in a Buffalo supermarket on Saturday, May 14, 2022. This act was an act of racially motivated violent terrorism. His murders were shown on Twitch until Twitch banned it. Local authorities and the FBI are investigating the tragedy. A peaceful rally has existed to show compassion to the victims and their families. The Buffalo mayor is right to say that the murders are a racist hate crime period. The killer's name is Payton Gendron. He was not from Buffalo but an area many miles outside of the community. He is from Conklin, New York. Gendron used body armor and had three firearms. He has a semiautomatic rifle, a hunting rifle, and a shotgun. He had a head-mounted camera. On one weapon, there was a racial slur on it. The shooter shot 4 people in the parking out, then he shot people in the store, yelling out racist slurs at people. This proves that racism is not gone. We have an epidemic of racism in America plus throughout the world. Trump, far-right extremists, and far-right media propagandists have promoted this xenophobia, racism, and hatred for decades. Today, the biggest domestic threat in America is still far-right white racist terrorism. The police talked him down from committing suicide. Erie County D.A. John Flynn is looking into potential terrorism and hate crimes. The murderer (who threatened human lives before and warning signs were ignored) faces life in prison without parole as the maximum sentence. The worship of guns above the respect for the dignity of human life is the epitome of the philosophy of far-right extremism. The killer traveled over 100 miles to murder people because of racial hatred. That's evil. These liars even call legitimate gun regulations equivalent to gun confiscation of law-abiding citizens. That is a lie. We don't want law-abiding citizens to be stripped of their rights. We want regulations on guns, so lives can be saved. Geraldine Talley was one of the victims being only 62 when she passed. She was shopping with her fiancé. New York Governor Kathy Hochul has announced a $2.8 million in funding for the victims and their families. A heroic security Aaron Salter sacrificed his life to save others, and he was murdered by the gunman. Also, Buffalo has a long history of racial discrimination, segregation, and economic oppression. So, we must deal with the structural forms of oppression to make Buffalo and the world better.

 




There are many artists in 2022. One artist was Inayah Lamis. She was a singer, songwriter, and a person who is just getting started. She worked in the singing competition shows like American Idol and The Voice. She is from Houston, Texas. In 2022, we have a new generation of artists showing their views like Muni Long's Another, Normani's Fair, Kem's Stuck on You, and Lucky Daye's Over. On May 6, 2022, Ella Mai released her 2nd studio album named Heart on My Sleeve. This album has many ballads and vocals showing her maturity as an artist. The album is about the ups and downs of love plus romance. It even has the gospel singer Kirk Franklin and the R&B legend Mary J. Blige on the album. Her songs on Heart on My Sleeve don't place love in the sense that it's completely perfect. It doesn't sugarcoat how messy relationships are, but it does have the dream that true love can be attained. It's difficult to find true love, the songs want that quest to be fulfilled massively. When she was growing up, she was a fan of Lauryn Hill and Missy Elliot. Music continues to change and grow as we continue to live in the 2020s.  



Jesse Owens has always shown courage and militancy in track and field and outside of the sport. He refuted the Nazi myth of racial inferiority, and he is one of the best athletes of all time. That is why he won four gold medals at the 1936 Olympic Games. True militancy is not just saying words. It is also about using actions to form policies, programs, and institutions to benefit the people collectively. That is why Jesse Owens joined Abe Saperstein to help create the West Coast Negro League in 1946. Owens was the Vice President and owner of the Portland (Oregon) Rosebuds franchise. During one time, he didn't supported the black power salute by African American sprinters Tommie Smith and John Carlos at the 1968 Olympics. He changed his mind in his 1972 book called I Have Changed. He wrote that, "I realized now that militancy in the best sense of the word was the only answer where the black man was concerned, that any black man who wasn't a militant in 1970 was either blind or a coward." When you think about courage, Jesse Owens represents total courage on the track and in real life to the fullest. 


 



2022 in track and field is one of the most exciting years in track and field professionally in a long time. With the 2022 World Track and Field Championships coming up soon. We know tons of things going on. The 2022 Doha Diamond League results are still occurring. For the women's 200m in Doha, America's Gabrielle Thomas won gold with a time of 21.98, Shericka Jackson of Jamaica was second with the time of 22.07, and Great Britain's Dina Asher-Smith won third with the time of 22.37. For the men's 200m, Noah Lyles of America won first with 19.72, America's Fred Kerley won 2nd with 19.75, and Jereem Richards won third with a time of 20.15. For the 400m, Marilediy Paulino won first with 51.2 seconds (from the Dominican Republic), Stephanie Ann McPherson of Jamaica won 2nd with 51.69, and Shaunae Miller-Uibo won third from the Bahamas with the rime of 52.09. For the men's 400 m, Alison Dos Santos of Brazil won first with 47.49 seconds, Rai Benjamin won 2nd with 47.49 seconds, and Thomas Barr won third with 49.67 seconds.
