Black History Reflections

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

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.

A Native Black Woman’s Perspective

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.

Why Black Lives Matter

Why Black Lives Matter
By Glendora Claybrooks
September 21, 2015
 
My 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.

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.

Grand Jury Race and Outrage

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


Overrepresentation and Underrepresentation Perspective
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 and underrepresentation.
