Thanksgiving 2017

It has been an entire year since the last presidential election in which the Electoral College of the United States again chose someone to govern the nation. Many are saddened that the Obamas are moving on to new endeavors.  What a class act the Obamas have been. With Barack Obama – the Electoral College got it right but the election of 2016 resulted in an ill-fated choice for America.

Praying like never before.  Black men, women and children matter as does all People of Color.

Barack Obama Completed His Presidential Terms

President Barack Obama has completed his presidential terms (2). He proved himself to be a man of honor, integrity, concern, knowledge, compassion and all the many other humane, loving adverbs and adjectives one can muster.  He is a difficult act to follow.  He and the First Lady, Michelle Obama, daughters Sasha and Malia along with First Pets – Sunny and Bo will be greatly missed.

Mr. and Mrs. Obama, you and your family have made the American people and the people around the world extremely proud.  Your service is more than appreciated and will never be forgotten. You have truly raised the bar.  What an inspiration.

Thank you! A million times over.  My the Lord above bless you all above measure.

Racial Unrest in Our Country in 2016

Wow, since there has been continual murdering of unarmed Black Men in Amerikkka, many have taken to social media, me included, to express our concerns.  Facebook, Twitter and other media sites have been consistently busy with posting updates surrounding the numerous marches taking place.

Castille, Sterling

In the following instance, Philando Castille was murdered – pulled over because his “nose is too big”.  The gall:

The media dishonestly reported Castille was wanted for armed robbery – this was false:

Verdict: NOT GUILTY in the Trayvon Martin Case

Really!  How is it that this jury handed down a not guilty verdict? Were we watching the exact same case? Is it true you and stalk someone almost to their front door, shoot and kill them and then scream self-defense?  Only in America is this kind of behavior acceptable. 

I strongly disagree with the verdict and here is why: After zimmerman wrongfully profiled Trayvon, he pursued Trayvon after being told not to. Zimmerman lied when he said he did not continue to pursue Trayvon.  Zimmerman also had several scenarios as to how he was able to get the gun and shoot our Trayvon.  These are just some of the inconsistencies in his story, along with zimmerman not having knowledge of Stand Your Ground laws— zimmerman took a course in it and excelled.  His entire story was fabricated.
