Although, the month of February has been set aside for our
country to acknowledge, reflect, and honor our Black American history and our
heroes both male and female, for which I am pleased. However, I believe that we
should remember, reflect, teach, and abide by this badge of honor throughout
our society every month of the year. For the USA, historical existence and its flag
have been and is as much a part of Black people’s history, since its reported
discovery of the Americas by “Christopher Columbus.
The Electoral College Voting Process
By Glendora Claybrooks
Ever since the November 08, 2016 election when the potential President-elect
was announced, I lost my faculties. And like the rest of the common sense
political thinking citizens in this country, I was shaken to my inner core. My
first emotion was sheer disbelief, and then anger. I needed to justify why I
was so angered by this outcome. Early on, I realized that Trump was a
presidential possibility. I attributed this possibility to several factors.
Our lived experiences,
cultures, values, and exposures indeed lead us to analyze, understand, and
interpret information differently. And sadly, more often than not, social
media, TV, influence us and those political newspapers reported articles whose
purpose is to keep us informed of our external government activities among
other developing occurrences. However, the contents are not always accurate and
fair in its depiction and description of its headliners. These same reported
details define public concerns, and they have projected negative images and attitudes
about Hillary Rodham Clinton’s personal and political integrity and dishonesty.
These conditions reflect the importance and purpose of the phrase "Black Lives Matter!" It explains root causes of Why Black Lives Matter...Scroll below and read all about it!!! #Believe it because we are still living in it!!!

Why Black Lives Matter
September 21, 2015
heart overflows with elements of passion, compassion, and justice, equality,
equity, and understanding, love, respect, and dignity, and acceptance of all
humankind. These inherent traits both define and drive me and have served me
well over time. Therefore, it is from this perspective from which, I express
sincere concern for supporting the statement,Black Lives Matter. There are those who say that all lives matter,
but of course, all lives do matter!
A Tribute to Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
I extend my right hand to thee in love and respect to thine
shrine and memory of you Dr. King. Your legacy has taught me to follow graciously
and humbly in your non-violent attitude of outreach and leadership while actionably
mobilizing and exercising my citizenship in the vain of sustaining and
maintaining my“certain unalienable rights.”Until at which time, the Spirit leads me toward the true light of awareness and awakeness by which, I too shall leave behind a better holy and righteous purposeful
self-untangled spiritual environment.
My understanding of a Grand Jury is
that it entails a process whereby citizens are selected to determine the
innocence or guilt of criminal behaviors based on evidence and not experiences.
When it comes to racial and social profiling, and selecting Jurors of your
peers in the United States, I am neither color blind, nor in favor of Juror
incognito (concealed identity). However, I am for acknowledging America’s racial
historical facts and their ongoing impact on our social and criminal systems of
the 21 century.
Overrepresentation and Underrepresentation
November 17, 2012
I am driven
by my ongoing socioeconomic and cultural inferior conditions, notwithstanding
the purported statistical minority progress of the 21 century. Too
many Blacks, African and Native Americans, Latinos, and other minorities still
live below the federal poverty line, given the small statistics, of which we
represent in America.
The two terms that internally motivate and incentivize me to comment on are overrepresentation
