ENDURING LEGACY

It is so comforting to hear this voice associated to the topic that President Obama is speaking about.

The tone, the sense of protection, the equanimity, the strength.

All that we need to go on. 

We must stand tall.

There’s no going back.

We will do so to honor those who came before us, for our generation and for the younger generation coming up.

We will do so also in gratitude to this amazing ally, President Obama!

Millions around the world took part in parades and marches in honor of National LGBTQ Pride Month, but these celebrations may not have been possible if not for a group of LGBTQ activists who 48 years ago stood up in a local New York bar and fought back against hate.

On June 28, 1969, when New York City police began again harassing LGBTQ patrons of the Stonewall Inn simply for congregating, those patrons decided they’d had enough. They began bravely fighting back against the consistent oppression and brutal intimidation they faced. From those early demonstrations grew a modern social movement determined to rid the nation of discrimination against all LGBTQ Americans.

Exactly one year later, the first Pride marches took place in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles to commemorate the anniversary of the historic stand against injustice at Stonewall.

The significance of the events at Stonewall, and their influence in shaping the national conversation surrounding LGBTQ equality in America, cannot be overstated. Last summer, then-President Obama acknowledged the historic contributions of the events of 1969 by designating the Stonewall Inn as the country’s first LGBTQ national monument, a place essential to telling the story of the LGBTQ community’s struggle for equality.

“We can’t rest, we gotta keep pushing for equality and acceptance and tolerance, but the arc of our history is clear,” said Obama.

“It’s an arc of progress and a lot of that progress can be traced back to Stonewall.”

The LGBTQ community hailed Obama’s announcement, which recognized what many consider the birthplace of the LGBTQ movement, providing a public acknowledgement of Stonewall’s much-deserved place in history.

Though Stonewall’s legacy is cemented in history, LGBTQ progress remains on shaky ground in the Drumpf Era

HRC takes inspiration from the brave members of our community who stood up for themselves – and all of us – at Stonewall, and remains committed to ensuring all people, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, are treated equality and with dignity under the law.

~~Announcing the Stonewall National Monument~~

~~Published on Jun 24, 2016~~

“I’m designating the Stonewall National Monument as the newest addition to America’s national parks system.

Stonewall will be our first national monument to tell the story of the struggle for LGBT rights. I believe our national parks should reflect the full story of our country – the richness and diversity and uniquely American spirit that has always defined us. That we are stronger together. That out of many, we are one.”

~President Barack Obama~

On June 24, 2016 President Obama designated the site of the Stonewall uprising and birthplace of the modern LGBT civil rights movement the “Stonewall National Monument.”

This new monument is a testament to the diversity, inclusiveness, and individual freedom that make America great.

There’s no reason to continue on the bandwagon of appeasing this ‘little, orange man-child‘.

It’s time to stand up and call things are they are.

No more alternate facts, no more alternate universe.

The emperor is indeed naked and we all see it. 

The nation, Republican legislators, the sycophantic base, the elected Democrats, the media and some others may be added.

There are secondary gains for those who hold this position. The country is burning and they are waiting for a better position down the road.

Trevor Noah’s Devastated Monologue … Philando Castile dash-cam footage …. ‘It broke me’ …. “!!


Trevor

~~June 23, 2017~~ 

JURY OF YOUR PEERS

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT

Trevor Noah isn’t an American.

Trevor (born 20 February 1984) is a South African television and radio host, and comedian, known for his role as host of The Daily Show on American network Comedy Central since September 2015.

He is a Black man … he knows how this feels.  

America should be ashamed but then again, there is so much to be ashamed for, that this is only a small drop in a huge bucket.

Sad!!

HortyRex©

BLine

On Wednesday night’s episode, June 21, of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” Trevor Noah devoted the second half of his monologue to his devastation after seeing the just-released dash-cam video footage of the Minnesota police officer who fatally shot Philando Castile during a traffic stop last year.

Last week, the officer was acquitted on all charges, including manslaughter.

Philando

I won’t lie to you.

When I watched this video, it broke me.

It just – it broke me. You see so many of these videos, and you start to get numb, but this one? Seeing the child, that little girl, getting out of the car, after watching a man get killed, it broke my heart into little pieces.

Like, I thought of every joke people make about “Oh, the most confusing day in the hood is Father’s Day”:

“People don’t know where their parents are, ha-ha. Black dads.” That’s a black dad that’s gone.

That’s a child that grows up not knowing what it’s like to have somebody in their life.

It’s one thing to have the system against you – the district attorneys, the police unions, the courts – that’s one thing. But when a jury of your peers, your community, sees this evidence and decides that even this is self-defense, that is truly depressing. Because what they’re basically saying is in America, it is officially reasonable to be afraid of a person just because they are black.

And that’s the truth of what we saw with this verdict.

~Dear Evan Hansen Song in Memory of the Orlando Victims~

In recognition of the one-year anniversary of the attack at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, where, on June 12, 2016, 49 people were killed and 53 others were wounded, the creators of mashup music videos #HAM4BEY have released their newest collaboration: a moving rendition of “You Will Be Found” from Dear Evan Hansen in memory of the victims.

The music video series was created by artist Michael Korte.

The performers featured are Mario Jose, Vincint, Danielle Withers, and Eric Lyn.

The track was arranged by David Rowen, with vocal production by Alexander Blake. The video was filmed and edited by Baxter Stapleton.

On June 12, 2016 – the same day as the Tony Awards – a gunman opened fire around 2 AM in Orlando’s Pulse gay nightclub, where more than 300 people were inside.

The attack marked one of the deadliest against the LGBTQ community in the nation’s history.

Of all the piercing questions hanging over the West Wing, one of the most pressing is whether Drumpf has a taping system that captured his conversations with James Comey.
But to many inside the White House, in other parts of government as well as to several close associates of the ‘so-called president, there is far less urgency or mystery.

Nearly a dozen people from all of those walks of life told CNN they suspect it’s merely Drumpf bluster and there’s no such taping mechanism.
