“Racism and this 2016 Election” Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


untitledFears of heightened bigotry and hate crimes have turned into reality for some Americans after Donald Trump’s presidential win on Tuesday November 8th. And the list of incidents keeps growing.

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, they’ve counted more than 300 cases of hateful harassment or intimidation in the U.S. since Election Day. “They’ve been everywhere — in schools, in places of business, in stores like Walmart and on the street,” SPLC President Richard Cohen said Monday.

While Trump has been accused of fostering xenophobia, hate, racism and Islamophobia, some people have used his words as justification to carry out hateful crimes. In recent days we have witnessed ugly episodes of racist or anti-Semitic pro-Trump graffiti along with threats or attacks against Muslims.

The Confederate Flag….A Symbol of Slavery or Racism? On the next “Conversations Of A Sistah”


battle-flag-2a

As you know, the uproar over the Confederate flag began last month after photos surfaced online of church shooter Dylan Roof waving the flag. It was the execution of nine (9) individuals in a church in Charleston, South Carolina to change the wave of this conversation.

The South Carolina Senate voted Monday to remove the Confederate flag from a pole on the Statehouse grounds, though the proposal still needs approval from the state House and the governor.

The bill requires a two-thirds vote in each chamber; the Senate approved it 37-3. Gov. Nikki Haley has said she wants the flag to come down and will sign the bill.

Monday’s vote comes less than a week after the 15th anniversary of South Carolina taking the flag off the Capitol dome where it flew since the early 1960s and moving it to beside a monument honoring Confederate soldiers.

“Racism in America”…Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


 

Racism.1

So here we are about to embark on Christmas 2014. Racism still taints the American dream. Race relations are more prevalent now since a black president was elected into office in 2008 and more black men have been murdered or gunned down unjustly.

African Americans came from a history of sit-in, bus boycotts, marches, protest and the transformation of civil rights laws, giving us full civil and legal equality in this country. Yet prejudice and racism still exists and rears its ugly head in todays society.

It was one thing back in the day when the government decreed that blacks couldn’t vote, couldn’t patronize restaurants or couldn’t apply for certain jobs, that sort of racism shames everyone. But when you have cops killing and brutalizing young black men where prosecutors wink and grand juries allow these cops to walk, while refusing to indict, this is a deep rooted seed of racism.

GOP Haters going after Michelle Obama

No I don’t want to talk about the Grammy’s which aired last night because I didn’t watch! Some of the young artist of today lack talent, class and a sense of decorum and I’d rather not waste my time.

I do however; want to address the Facebook page that was created for the sole purpose of rejecting Subways partnership with Michelle Obama. The image above was listed on their page and is an indication of the racist intent to insult the first lady behind the guise of their gripe.

The creator or creators of this page have twisted the message and the meaning as dictatorship and a deplorable way of insulting the first lady’s efforts. Yet obesity has been cited as a contributing factor to approximately 100,000–400,000 deaths in the United States each year.

With high blood pressure, diabetes and other weight and health related diseases on the rise, how can Michelle Obama’s initiative be so misconstrued?

The bigotry of these individuals are bold  and their ignorance heralds the sadness of their misguided reasoning to reject the positive results of the first lady’s initiative’s in the first place.

How sad!!
