TWO YEARS AGO TODAY

Tragedy struck in the early hours of the night

It was a night of fun and celebration at a Latin even at Pulse, a local LGBTQ night club in Orlando.

Most victims were Latino and Hispanic.

It was Pulse’s Latin Night. 

It was a horrible situation.

It was a huge hit for the Latino and Hispanic communities.

It was reported that 90% of the victims were Latino/Hispanic with 23 of the victims from Puerto Rico.

‘Slavery in America’ …. “🤨 Didn’t End after the Civil War …. A New Form of Enslavement …. Still Permeates the American Psyche 🤨 …. “!!


Slaves

SLAVERY ISN’T A CHOICE

It could never be!

Recently an American in the music sphere stated that ‘slavery is a choice’.

Interesting to note, he’s an African American himself.

The current political, social and cultural climate in America is such that it lends itself to this type of thinking. The mask is off. Racism, white supremacy, dominance, distortion of facts, ignorance of history or plain shameless self-serving.

You pick the reason!

I find it so difficult to wrap my mind around this type of thinking. I can’t fathom how this happens.

“When you hear about slavery for 400 years … for 400 years?

That sounds like a choice. You were there for 400 years and it’s all of y’all.

It’s like we’re mentally imprisoned.”

SlaveHands

Slavery might have ended on paper after the Civil War, but many white landowners did everything they could to exploit newly freed slaves well into the 20th century.

Thousands of black laborers across the South were forced to work against their will as late as the 1960s – a new form of enslavement that went on in the shadows of rural America.

On this episode of DAILY VICE, we traveled to Louisiana to meet genealogist Antoinette Harrell, the “slavery detective of the South,” who tracks down cases of modern-day slavery and abusive labor practices.

They talk to a man whose family was held on a plantation against their will into the 1950’s and Antoinette explains how she uses decades-old records to uncover how slavery was perpetuated long after the Civil War ended.

Real meaning behind the handshake …. or lack thereof …. “Believe me …. better for you, Chancellor Merkel …. “!!

AWKWARD

Merkel asks for a handshake, Drumpf doesn’t respond

Amid the chaos of President Trump and Germany Chancellor Angela Merkel’s first meeting in the Oval Office on Friday, March 17, a request was made.

Photographers wondered if the world leaders would shake hands.

Merkel turned to Trump.

“Do you want a handshake?” she asked.

Trump didn’t respond.

To be fair, it seemed loud in the room.

And then Merkel made a face.

I’m sorry, I saw the exchange.

I will NOT give Drumpf a pass with the excuse that the room was loud.

He did this on purpose.

He totally ignored the ‘current leader of the free world‘ because he doesn’t know how to deal with strong women.

That was a lack of respect and a demonstration of this ‘person‘ who sits in the Oval office and wanders the White House at night!
