The 1968 Olympics Black Power salute was a political demonstration conducted by African-American athletes Tommie Smith and John Carlos during their medal ceremony at the 1968 Summer Olympics in the Olympic Stadium in Mexico City.

After having won gold and bronze medals, respectively, in the 200 meter running event, they turned on the podium to face their flags, and to hear the American national anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner”.

Each athlete raised a black-gloved fist.

FAST-FORWARD TO 2016

“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,”

Kaepernick told NFL Media in an exclusive interview after the game.

Khashoggi–The Story That Will Not Go Away


It seems that the break from reality and truth has spread from the West (aka USA) to the Middle East … it seems that the death of this journalist will be whitewashed … if it starts with:
‘Our Dear Supreme Leader is acting as the front man the PR agent for the Saudis … ‘ seems to me this will all be placed under an Arabian rug!!
What a world … humanity seems to have lost its way!!

In Saner Thought

That is what the Saudis are thinking…..and guess what…it should not go away!

***This is a lot to read but please give it some time for there is much to be learned***

Our Dear Supreme Leader is acting as the front man the PR agent for the Saudis…..

President Trump Tuesday criticized rapidly mounting global condemnation of Saudi Arabia over the case of missing journalist Jamal Khashoggi, warning of a rush to judgment. In an interview with the AP, Trump compared the situation to the allegations of sexual assault leveled against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearing. “I think we have to find out what happened first,” he said. “Here we go again with, you know, you’re guilty until proven innocent. I don’t like that. We just went through that with Justice Kavanaugh and he was innocent all the way as far as I’m concerned.” Trump…

1968 Olympics: An Afrikan-Amerikan Summer of Love and Reckoning


Resisting since then … has anything changed?
‘The 1968 Summer Olympics were 50 years ago this week. Tommie Smith’s and John Carlos’ raised gloved fists were many African Americans’ Summer of Love – and Pride, and Reckoning.’

The 1968 Summer Olympics were 50 years ago this week. Tommie Smith’s and John Carlos’ raised gloved fists were many African Americans’ Summer of Love – and Pride, and Reckoning.

In the summer of 1967, 100,000 fashion-forward and social-forward youth gathered in San Francisco in what has famously been called the Summer of Love. Similar gatherings occurred throughout the US, Canada, and Europe, all in an effort to reject the Vietnam War, consumerism, and governments who had proven less than forthright, while promoting the ideals of love, kindness, and compassion. The Summer of Love has been branded and celebrated as a symbol of the 60s. African Americans had another name for that summer: the Long, Hot Summer of 1967. During that time, 150 black communities burned in…

~~WORDS FAIL ME ~~

I’ve known for a while that America isn’t perfect.

I’ve researched and read about the many actions around the world that are contrary to the ‘greatest nation on earth, the benefactor of everyone, the police of the world’ mantra.

As I’ve gotten older and matured, reality has hit me like a ton of bricks!

Jamal Khashoggi tortured with bone saw for 7 minutes while Saudi killer drowned out screams with music.

(Turkish Source)

Journalist Jamal Khashoggi was tortured and dismembered over seven minutes while he was still alive, according to a Turkish source who heard an audio recording of the murder.

The Washington Post columnist was abducted Oct. 2 from the consul-general’s office at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul and dragged into a study next door – and a witness downstairs heard horrendous screams, reported Middle East Eye.

“The consul himself was taken out of the room,” the source told the website. “There was no attempt to interrogate him. They had come to kill him.”

The screaming stopped when Khashoggi was injected with an unknown substance.

The head of forensic evidence in the Saudi general security department, Salah Muhammad al-Tubaigy, was among a 15-man squad who arrived in Turkey earlier that day by private jet.

The source said Tubaigy started to cut up Khashoggi’s body on a table in the study while the journalist was still alive – and the killing took seven minutes.

Tubaigy put on earphones and listened to music as he dismembered Khashoggi’s body with a bone saw, and he advised other squad members to do the same.

 “When I do this job, I listen to music,” Tubaigy said on the recording.

“You should do that too.”

Lightly Child, Lightly


Enchanting indeed … a beautiful sight to wake up to!!

Some moments become enchanting with the addition of words,

others are completely killed if you try to describe them.

It’s the difference between a tiny bird flittering above your open palm

and a closed fist crushing wings.

In Punta Santiago, It’s A Microcosm Of A Battered Puerto Rico


The Puerto Rico story after Hurricane María … there are still plenty of stories to be told … ‘Arroyo embodies three things that so many Puerto Ricans faced over the last year – death, destruction and the heart-wrenching decision of whether to abandon the island for the mainland.’
Don’t expect help: Carolinas and FL panhandle!! At least don’t hold your breath … you are on your own!!

Repeating Islands

A report from WNPR.

A middle-aged woman sat over a pail of water, a blue umbrella shielding her from the scorching sun. Surrounded by a wreckage of branches and twisted metal sheets, Angelina Arroyo Rivera salvaged what remained of her belongings — some silverware and some plastic containers, a blue tarp, a red purse, a white blouse.

It was two weeks after Hurricane Maria had made landfall, not far from the town of Punta Santiago in the southeast of Puerto Rico, and Arroyo still hadn’t heard from her partner, who was in grave condition with a failing heart. She said he’d been transferred to a hospital in another city, the day before the storm, and with communications down across the island, she hadn’t heard from him in weeks.

A year later at the same spot — with the image of her under the blue umbrella ingrained in our minds — we found…
