WENDYS WINDOW: It’s Hot, You’re Tired, But Stay the Course
August 13, 2020
Summer is just about over and many of us are feeling hot, tired, and wondering what’s next?  Where did summer go?  Fun in the sun, traveling, and enjoying a nice vacation with family and loved ones didn’t happen the way many of us are used to and we are frustrated. We usually look at this time of year as a time to relax and refresh ourselves to prepare for Fall and finishing out the year strong.  The school year will begin soon, and students and parents alike have no idea what that will even look like. Businesses are still contemplating if employees should work remotely from home, and most of us have no idea what this “new normal” is really supposed to look like. But no matter what, I want to encourage all of us to not give up or give in, but let us remain steady and stay the course.   ... read more »
“Recognizing Aurora as America Unmasked: No Exemption, Even For Our Children”
August 13, 2020
As the pandemic of COVID-19 continues to ravage our community and the country, the pandemic of the pathology of racist oppression continues to claim its victims among us also. And this is not only because of the inequalities in our life conditions, health access, working needs and circumstances, and other structural disadvantages, but also because Black people and other people of color remain targets of racist violence. One of the latest cases is from Aurora, Colorado, August 2, where the police targeted, stopped, terrorized and humiliated four Black girls and a mother, out to get their nails done at a salon. Not satisfied with drawing guns on the children, 6, 12, 14 and 17, causing them to fear for their lives and call for their mother and sister, the White officers, men and women, ordered them out of the car, handcuffed them, except the 6-year old, and forced them all to lay face down on the parking lot pavement. The repulsively transparent lie told for this unjustifiable act of targeting and terrorism was that the police mistook the family’s SUV for a stolen motorcycle with the same license plate number but from another state.  ... read more »
Director Shaun Mathis talks about new documentary ‘Miles in the Life: The Story of a BMF Drug Trafficker’
August 13, 2020
Don’t get me wrong. There are worse places to grow up than the crack-era Brooklyn during the 1980’s epidemic. For example, there are hard-and-fast war zones where bombs explode regularly, and being rounded up and executed in plain sight are a daily occurrence. So — Brooklyn in the ’80s is not as graphic but the impact is just as devasting because it is a war and there are direct casualties and significant collateral damage.  ... read more »
