Go home Roger!!

The National Football League has now taken a nose dive backwards on the National Anthem stance. A short time ago Roger Goodell, the NFL Commissioner to what appeared to be a stand againt Donald Trump when Trump spoke out saying “Owners should Fire Players if they don’t stand.” Goodell seemed to back players, saying Trump’s comments were “divisive” and “demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL.” Now just this week he issued another statement and it is very luke warm. Goodell started by saying “We live in a country that can feel very divided.” This is a shame he putt in “FEEL” very divided. This is the portion of White Privilege that is very Trifling because how in God’s green earth can this country “Feel” divided when clear stats show us Polic Brutality, The discrimination in the schools, and the high rate of Prison inmates being Black. Not to mention the constant reports being done that continues to highlight Racism. So for Goodell to talking about FEELING is a disgrace and it is disrespectful. Goodell only placed that memo because he is more concerned with the sponsors, yet how easily they forget, without the PLAYERS the owners don’t get paid and neither does the Commissioner.  There was a time when Players did NOT have to leave the locker room for the Anthem and it wasn’t until the NFL was paid 5.9Million that they decided to have players stand. See White Supremacy is all about Money and Power. So we have to consider Jerry Jones may have called Roger Goodell and gave him an earful. Let us also remember Jerry Jones, the one who is so patriotic was and have always been an owner of the Dallas Cowboys, his teams also stood in the locker room during the national anthem and the Cowboys are supposed to be AMERICA’S team!

So the NFL is in for a battle on this one. It has always been yelled, “When are Black people going to come together?” Now we are doing it and now The White Supremacist are say “no not like that!” I am convinced and have been convinced for several years about Racism existing. I call you my readers to be clear within your life because within this world you have to be aware of Racism it seeps through that “Flag.”

In addition, the kneeling was not even about the Flag in the first place and the Kneeling was a suggestion from the Army Ranger that had a meeting with Colin last year. So live in Truth.

Dove’s Trifling Ad! Then apologizes

As you might be aware, Dove made the choice to share this ad. However, we have to step back into the make up of this ad from the first point. The idea was discussed and agreed upon by the general committee, they selected the actors for the commerical, they gave the scripts to the actors for them to SEE what they were going to do and this is what we have. So they can save this apology because this is not the first time this has happened with this company. As a matter of fact this is the third or fourth time.

This reminds me of “nothing new under the sun” because our society started with Black faces to mock our culture and now it has expanded to this ignorance and I have to say those words because that is truly what it is. Yes, we can declare a boycott of their products; however, that is only part of the issue. More of the issue is this passive apology from a company that will not only KEEP its leadership in tact, however, they will be considered protected under “1st amendment” freedom of speech. We cannot accept this apology because this room full of the decision makers carried high qualify education and they made a clear choice to be hateful and trifling.

My call to action is to address every discriminatory action headon with not only  a boycott, also make noise by bring attention to it through social media, newspapers and be direct with the action.

Danger Lurks In Hospitals For Black Babies

Only a few hours old, and already subjected to racism. Two Black infants have been abused and disrespected while in the care of trusted hospital nurses.

Treating a baby like a rag doll to the tune of 50 Cent, “In Da Club”, and calling a baby “mini Satan” while flipping the bird, are what we know for sure took place in a Navy hospital, where white nurses should have been providing care to infants.

As disturbing as the situation is, what’s even more horrifying is the thought of what they may have done off camera. The fact is that, we hope the Snapchat images show the extent of the violation, but only the babies and the offending nurses really know.

Hospital staff are entrusted with our babies when they’re out of our site. Unfortunately, the title of person says nothing about their mindset. We have no idea what they think of us, or our children, or how those thoughts will impact the care they give.

These aggressive acts against newly born infants is just another reason for more of us to engage in home births. Aside from the many benefits of having a child in your own home, or even a birthing center, the aspect of protection is major.

What’s guaranteed is that this isn’t the first or last incident of transgressions against Black children, and it’s not the only hospital or medical facility. We owe it ourselves and our children to find other ways, including a return to the age-old practice of our ancestors.

You and baby deserve to be mo better!
