ROOTS OF PREJUCIDE

DRUMPF HATES PUERTO RICANS BECAUSE THEY TOOK OVER NEW YORK

Many of you know that Puerto Rico is my country.

I was born and raised there. I didn’t move to the U.S. of A. until 1999.

I left the Island because I managed to transfer to Jacksonville to continue to work with the federal government.

Both my Mom and Dad met in New York City and married there in the early 1930’s.

When I told my Dad about my transfer to Florida, he was happy for me and concerned, at the same time. He told me that prejudice was rampart and everywhere. I didn’t get his concern. Why should I be worried? I’m an American citizen.

Puerto Rico is part of the United States. 

After watching this video, my Dad’s concerns came back to me. Here is part of the explanation. I assume that while in New York City, during the 1930’s, he was a recipient of it. I recall that Puerto Ricans were known as ‘spics‘ … a derogatory name stemming from the fact that Boricuas pronounced ‘speak’ as ‘spic’.

“I don’t ‘spic’ English!”

That was it.

I feel this is important information about what is happening in the Republican Administration lead by Drumpf and what we need to be aware of.

‘First Amendment Defense Act’ …. “FADA …. be informed …. it’s coming …. “!!

‘FADA’

Would Be ‘Devastating’ for LGBTQ Americans

Yes, it would be devastating!

After all the work, advances and attained goals, with this simple bill, the beginning of discrimination against a group of the American fabric would be openly and brazenly attacked and stripped of their human rights.

We must stand up and fight!

Earlier this month, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas and Senator Mike Lee of Utah, through his spokesperson, told Buzzfeed they plan to reintroduce an embattled bill that barely gained a House hearing in 2015. But this time around, they said, the First Amendment Defense Act (FADA) was likely to succeed due to a Republican-controlled House and the backing of President-elect Donald Trump.

FADA would prohibit the federal government from taking “discriminatory action” against any business or person that discriminates against LGBTQ people. The act distinctly aims to protect the right of all entities to refuse service to LGBTQ people based on two sets of beliefs:

“(1) marriage is or should be recognized as the union of one man and one woman,

or (2) sexual relations are properly reserved to such a marriage.”

Ironically, the language of the bill positions the right to discriminate against one class of Americans as a “first amendment” right, and bans the government from taking any form of action to curb such discrimination – including withholding federal funds from institutions that discriminate.

FADA allows individuals and businesses to sue the federal government for interfering in their right to discriminate against LGBTQ people and would mandate the Attorney General defend the businesses.

NO SE PUEDE

Carolina Moreno
Editor, The Huffington Post

On Wednesday, October 19, when moderator Chris Wallace asked Trump about immigration policy and reform, he began, as he often does, painting undocumented immigrants as violent criminals. (Despite research repeatedly proving native born citizens are more likely to be linked to violent crime than immigrants.)

Then the GOP nominee moved on to drugs, drug lords and, again, the need to deport “bad people”:

We’ll get them out, secure the border, and once the border is secured, at a later date we’ll make a determination as to the rest. But we have some bad hombres here and we’re going to get them out.

Politics aside, the language Trump uses is just as important as what he is, or rather isn’t, saying. Sure he’s repeatedly spoken about immigrants as if they were a biblical plague of sombrero-wearing, mustachioed criminals yelling “arriba! arriba!” as they run across the border with taco bowls filled with drugs.

But on Wednesday night he turned to Spanish to make his point. 

bluebor

When Trump casually used “bad hombres” that night, what he was trying to do was use our own language against us.

Off-the-cuff or not, that’s just all sorts of WRONG! … to put it in the Donald’s own language.

While many reacted with quips and memes to Trump’s awkward use of “bad hombres,” what I heard was a corruption of something I felt to be mine. My mother’s tongue, the language in which I uttered my first word as a child, the language that feels like family, culture and home in my mouth, being used by a man set on vilifying my community and immigrants.

And in this case Donald, no se puede.

Something to think about …. “Make America White Again? …. Why?


WhiteNATRad

~~September 4, 2016~~ 

AMERICA WASN’T WHITE INITIALLY

This country has never been ALL white!

The degree of obvious racism and white supremacy sentiment, which has always been hiding in the wings of this society, has come forth and continued to grow.

Mexicans, Muslims, Latinos  and many other people of color have been the target of plenty vitriolic comments.

When whites arrived in this country, they had to “dispose” of the “red man”.

The policies of this belief have continued undaunted.

The current political climate has done nothing to stop it.

It reminds me of “Manifest Destiny”.

It seems to me that ‘the way’ has been lost!

MANIFEST DESTINY

In the 19th century, manifest destiny was a widely held belief in the United States that its settlers were destined to expand across North America.

Historians broadly agree that there are three basic themes to manifest destiny:

The special virtues of the American people and their institutions
The mission of the United States to redeem and remake the west in the image of agrarian America
An irresistible destiny to accomplish this essential duty

Historian Frederick Merk says this concept was born out of “a sense of mission to redeem the Old World by high example … generated by the potentialities of a new earth for building a new heaven”.

During the months of June 2016, a Donald Trump-inspired congressional candidate has sparked outrage by plastering “Make America White Again” on billboards in eastern Tennessee.

Rick Tyler, an Independent running in the 3rd District that includes the city of Chattanooga, almost immediately started catching hell for his racist spin on the presumptive Republican presidential candidate’s slogan, “Make America Great Again.”

ARIZONA LATINO VOTE 

Rachel discussed the fact that 31% of the Arizona population is Latino.

AZ is a deeply red state which has the potential of become blue in 2016.

There’s a local movement intensely trying to register locals in time to be able to vote for the Presidential elections come November 8.

Rachel explained the situation and interviewed Francisco Heredia.

Take a look at the TV ad which has been airing locally.

It’s an effort of many television personalities, who have put aside their differences and competing TV stations.

All with the purpose of activating registration of the Latino vote.

New Spanish-language TV ad in Arizona designed to boost Hispanic voter registration

A first-of-its-kind media campaign launches in Arizona on Wednesday, August 31, in hopes of boosting Hispanic voter registration to historic highs

A new public service announcement co-produced by the state’s largest Spanish-language television and radio stations is set to air roughly 2,500 times through Election Day on Univision and Telemundo television stations and will feature DJ’s and talk show hosts from some of the state’s most popular Spanish-language radio stations, according to organizers.

The campaign is the brainchild of Mi Familia Vota, a nonpartisan voter registration group that is seeking to register roughly 95,000 new Latino voters in six states this year.

While volunteers are rounding up new registrants in California, Colorado, Florida, Nevada and Texas, Arizona is seen as the crown jewel of the effort this year.

That’s because no other state has been on the front lines of the years-long immigration policy fights and Hispanic leaders are eager to demonstrate their community’s growing political clout in the state.

No matter how a new voter registers, Mi Familia Vota is hoping to boost the numbers with its new ad campaign, which stars Spanish-language television and radio news anchors and morning talk show hosts. 

The ad begins with anchors asking whether the viewer is 18 or older and registered to vote. It reminds the viewer that voter registration continues in Arizona through Oct. 10.

Lat

“We are extremely proud of our Latino media partners,” said Ben Monterroso, executive director of Mi Familia Vota. “They are making history in an already historic election by continuing to help build political power for the Latino community.”

The campaign is backed by Azteca America; the Phoenix and Tucson affiliates of Univision and Telemundo; Univision-owned radio stations Que Buena 105.9 FM, Mas Variedad 106.3 FM and Latino Mix 100.3 FM; Contacto Total, a Phoenix-area radio station; stations owned by Entravision Radio, including La Tricolor 103.5 FM, Jose 106.9 and 107.1 FM & ESPN 710 AM; Mary Rabago Productions LLC; Mujeres Unicas LLC; Onda 1190-AM; Prensa Hispana; Teleritmo; and UniMás Arizona.

To start the day …. “Dixie Chicks – Not Ready To Make Nice …. “!!


Dix10

~~August 18, 2016~~ 

REMEMBER WHEN?

The Dixie Chicks were an up and coming country, bluegrass roots and rock ’n’ roll music band who were really taking off as musical performers.

That all changed when a simple comment appeared to insult the then president of the United States.

Many fans, radio stations, individuals turned against them because of a single comment.

The lead singer was exercising her “freedom of speech”.

The aftermath was  very negative including death threats towards them and their families.

Not Ready to Make Nice” is one of my favorite songs from the Taking the Long Way album.

It expresses still their feelings some time after “the incident”.

I can barely being to imagine how they felt.

Yet …. they are back!!!

GoldSwirl

The Chicks, whose bluegrass roots and rock ’n’ roll spirit broke down country music barriers and made them the best-selling female band of all time in the United States, were in the middle of a lengthy hiatus. The trio had not been heard from since scaling back a 2006 tour that suffered from continuing reverberations from “the incident”:

a remark the singer Natalie Maines had made about President George W. Bush a few years earlier.

“As it appears in … full read/full credit”

GoldSwirl

Not Ready to Make Nice” is a song co-written and performed by American country music band Dixie Chicks.

It was released in June 2006 as the first single from the band’s seventh studio album, Taking the Long Way. It remains the band’s biggest hit in the US to date. The song was written by Natalie Maines, Martie Maguire, Emily Robison, and Dan Wilson.

“Not Ready To Make Nice”

Forgive, sounds good
Forget, I’m not sure I could
They say time heals everything
But I’m still waiting

I’m through with doubt
There’s nothing left for me to figure out
I’ve paid a price
And I’ll keep paying

I’m not ready to make nice
I’m not ready to back down
I’m still mad as hell and
I don’t have time to go round and round and round
It’s too late to make it right
I probably wouldn’t if I could
‘Cause I’m mad as hell
Can’t bring myself to do what it is you think I should

I know you said
Can’t you just get over it
It turned my whole world around
And I kind of like it

I made my bed and I sleep like a baby
With no regrets and I don’t mind sayin’
It’s a sad sad story when a mother will teach her
Daughter that she ought to hate a perfect stranger
And how in the world can the words that I said
Send somebody so over the edge
That they’d write me a letter
Sayin’ that I better shut up and sing
Or my life will be over

I’m not ready to make nice
I’m not ready to back down
I’m still mad as hell and
I don’t have time to go round and round and round
It’s too late to make it right
I probably wouldn’t if I could
‘Cause I’m mad as hell
Can’t bring myself to do what it is you think I should

I’m not ready to make nice
I’m not ready to back down
I’m still mad as hell and
I don’t have time to go round and round and round
It’s too late to make it right
I probably wouldn’t if I could
‘Cause I’m mad as hell
Can’t bring myself to do what it is you think I should

What it is you think I should

Forgive, sounds good
Forget, I’m not sure I could
They say time heals everything
But I’m still waiting …
