ATHLETE AND ACTIVIST COLIN KAEPERNICK RECEIVES AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL’S AMBASSADOR OF CONSCIENCE AWARD

The Ambassador of Conscience Award celebrates individuals and groups who have furthered the cause of human rights through acts of conscience, confronting injustice and using their talents to inspire others.

The USA is a country where people can freely disrespect the flag using it as a thong, underwear, condom, disposable plates, bras, napkins, etc. but people got a heart attack just because he kneeled down silently and that is so “disrespectful” to the flag.

Really?

Kneeling down is a form of respect and humbling yourself before someone.

I fully agree with Chino and his statement.

The award was officially presented at a ceremony in Amsterdam, Netherlands, on 21 April 2018, to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the opening of Amnesty International’s national section in the country.

“The Ambassador of Conscience award celebrates the spirit of activism and exceptional courage, as embodied by Colin Kaepernick. He is an athlete who is now widely recognised for his activism because of his refusal to ignore or accept racial discrimination,” said Salil Shetty, Secretary General of Amnesty International.

“Just like the Ambassadors of Conscience before him, Colin Kaepernick chooses to speak out and inspire others despite the professional and personal risks. When high profile people choose to take a stand for human rights, it emboldens many others in their struggles against injustice.

Colin Kaepernick’s commitment is all the more remarkable because of the alarming levels of vitriol it has attracted from those in power.”

“I would like to thank Amnesty International for the Ambassador of Conscience Award. But in truth, this is an award that I share with all of the countless people throughout the world combating the human rights violations of police officers, and their uses of oppressive and excessive force.

To quote Malcolm X, when he said that he, ‘will join in with anyone – I don’t care what color you are – as long as you want to change this miserable condition that exists on this earth,’ I am here to join with you all in this battle against police violence,” said Colin Kaepernick.

“While taking a knee is a physical display that challenges the merits of who is excluded from the notion of freedom, liberty, and justice for all, the protest is also rooted in a convergence of my moralistic beliefs, and my love for the people.”

Colin Kaepernick explained why he sacrificed his career in the NFL to stand against systemic racism as he received Amnesty International’s highest honor.

REST IN PRIDE

~Rainbow Flag Creator Gilbert Baker Dead at 65~

Thank you Gilbert for giving our community one of our greatest gifts.

You are a trailblazer for #LGBTQ youth around the world.

You will be missed!

It Gets Better Project

Gilbert Baker (June 2, 1951 – March 31, 2017) was an openly gay American artist and civil rights activist who designed the rainbow flag in 1978. Baker’s flag became widely associated with LGBT rights causes, a symbol of pride that became ubiquitous in the decades since its debut.

The colors on the Rainbow Flag reflect the diversity of the LGBT community.

When Baker raised the first rainbow flags at San Francisco Pride (his group raised two flags at the Civic Center) on June 25, 1978, it had eight colors, each with a symbolic meaning:

Hot Pink: sexuality
Red: life
Orange: healing
Yellow: sunlight
Green: nature
Turquoise: magic/art
Blue: serenity/harmony
Violet: spirit

STOLEN SCOTUS SEAT

Does Congress really think that the people they serve have a short attention span or an attention deficit disorder?

Do they think we are stupid?

Don’t they know that there is written and visual evidence of what they say and do?

Perfect example depicted!

~The Supreme Court stands at a crossroads~

As the court prepares to hear its first cases of the 2016-2017 term next week, Senate Republicans’ unprecedented blockade of Chief Judge Merrick Garland’s nomination has resulted in a state of dysfunction at our nation’s highest court.

This upcoming term demonstrates both the incredible importance of the Court and how it has been dangerously hobbled by the lack of a ninth justice.

Democratic senator accused the GOP of “theft” for blocking President Barack Obama’s nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court so it can be filled by the Drumpf administration.

“We really have to pay attention to the Supreme Court seat.

The seat that is sitting empty is being stolen,” Sen. Jeff Merkley told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes on Thursday night, January 27.

“It’s being stolen from the Obama administration and the construct of our Constitution. And it’s being delivered to an administration that has no right to fill it.”

President Barack Obama stood in the White House Rose Garden back in March to announce his nominee, Merrick Garland, for the Supreme Court seat emptied by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia.

But Republicans who control the Senate have refused to grant Garland a hearing, saying it should be up to Obama’s successor to pick a replacement for Scalia, who died in February 2016.

I’ve always loved this woman.

Guess I love her more now.

I saw this video during the weekend and it really left and impression.

Just think … a 19 years old girl from Tennessee wrote these words!

There’s hope for the new generation.

Michael Moore was in for a surprise during the Women’s March on Washington on Saturday when Ashley Judd interrupted him to read a politically charged poem

“I am Ashley Judd,” she declared as Moore reacted in shock, “and I am a feminist.”

She proceeded to recite a poem written by a 19-year-old named Nina Donovan from Tennessee. The contents of the writing included references to Trump’s election, mass incarceration, LGBT rights, the wage gap, and more relevant issues.

At one point, the poem compares Trump to Adolf Hitler.

The poem repeated the refrain “I am not as nasty as…”

at one point attacking Trump’s relationship with his daughter, Ivanka.

“I’m not as nasty as your daughter being your favorite sex symbol,” Judd said.

VOTE LOVE, NOT HATE

This weekend has been quite troubling for me.

I’m sure many of you know the reason why.

The latest ‘wrench thrown in the process’ is another batch of emails that may or may not be significant.

By all counts, it seems that history will be the only way that the effect of this revelation with change/upset the results of this most important American election process.

Presidential Election 2016

To me, it’s not only America.

To me, it’s the whole world.

Remember the saying …

‘cut off your nose to spite your face
to hurt yourself in an effort to punish someone else’

Today, more than any day, we need this kind of powerful message.

Alicia Keys is urging fans to “Vote Love” in a powerful new video endorsing Hillary Clinton.

In the video, produced in partnership with MoveOn.org Political Action, Keys discusses the importance of voting for Clinton and how it can help us “wake up in a more perfect union” as it relates to trans equality, gender equality, sexual equality, and racial equality.

“I’m fighting for a woman who was never meant to have a seat at the table,” she says. “A woman who never quit–who never got too jaded for hope.

She endures because she has faith in our kindness.”

Keys is one of more than 100 high-profile celebrities who have joined MoveOn.org’s #UnitedAgainstHate campaign to ensure Americans vote against Donald Trump in the upcoming election.

Ali

~~June 4, 2016~~ 

THE GREATEST

Muhammad Ali, the silver-tongued boxer and civil rights champion who famously proclaimed himself “The Greatest” and then spent a lifetime living up to the billing, is dead.

Ali died Friday at a Phoenix-area hospital, where he had spent the past few days being treated for respiratory complications, a family spokesman confirmed to NBC News.

He was 74.

After a 32-year battle with Parkinson’s disease, Muhammad Ali has passed away at the age of 74. The three-time World Heavyweight Champion boxer died this evening,” Bob Gunnell, a family spokesman, told NBC News.

Ali had suffered for three decades from Parkinson’s, a progressive neurological condition that slowly robbed him of both his verbal grace and his physical dexterity. A funeral service is planned in his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky.

Thoughts for today, #369 …. “#DemocraticWhores …. Ouch”!!


John

~~April 18, 2016~~ 

DEMOCRATIC WHORES 


Better get our asses in line and stop this insane bickering and worse attitudes between the supporters of the two candidates in the race who are real, have common sense, experience, education and the best interest of this country than any other.

We have already seen enough of the “others”!

There isn’t ONE who is a saint, who is “virginal”, who is untouched by corporate America.

They all have houses made of glass.

Make sure that we stand united.

There’s strength in union.

Divided we fall!

…. and what are we going to fall to?

We don’t even want to imagine.

People Outraged Over the “Democratic Whore” Comment Made at Bernie Sanders’s Rally

April 14, 2016

By LISETTE MEJIA

Bernie Sanders is distancing himself from comments made by one of his surrogates at a rally at Washington Square Park on Wednesday night.

Dr. Paul Song is a physician and activist for universal healthcare, and before Sanders took the stage in New York City, Song told the crowd:

“Medicare for all will never happen if we continue to elect corporate Democratic whores, who are beholden to big pharma and the private-insurance industry instead of us,” according to NPR.

After pressure to denounce Song’s “whore” comment came from many Hillary Clinton supporters, including her communications director, Sanders tweeted that the comment was “inapporpriate and insensitive.”
