Mother’s Day

No matter what I do to move on from this pain, deep down inside I will always know that I’ll never get to hug my mom again.

I miss you.

‘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.

The Macron-Trump Summit and the Dandruff Factor

The summit this week in Washington, D.C., between Presidents Emmanuel Macron and Donald Drumpf has caused an anxious transatlantic exchange between Francophile Americans and French observers of American life over a singular and urgent issue: the proper French translation for the word “dandruff.”

TRIP DOWN HISTORY LANE

HOW DID IT BEGIN?

It seems that a lot of effort has been placed in the celebration of our planet, Mother Earth.

In the United States, the ‘Environmental Protection Agency‘ was created to assure that norms and regulations were put in place to do this country’s part in the worldwide effort to protect this planet.

At the time of this writing, it looks like all those efforts are in the process of dismantling by the current EPA top official in association with the Executive branch of the current government.

That cannot be allowed. Grassroot efforts must be undertaken once again to assure that Mother Earth is protected.

In this instance, history MUST repeat itself.

Remember, there is no ‘Planet B’!

 “We need the tonic of wildness – to wade sometimes in marshes where the bittern and the meadow-hen lurk, and hear the booming of the snipe; to smell the whispering sedge where only some wilder and more solitary fowl builds her nest, and the mink crawls with its belly close to the ground. At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be infinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.”

I’m not British but I’ve been fascinated with the Royal Family since Princess Diana appeared on the scene.

After all the events during her marriage, eventual divorce and fatal death, I’ve followed their ‘happenings’.

This isn’t changing any time soon since Catherine and William married and started their family.

Best wishes, Little One!

~~Happy 4th Birthday Prince George!~~

~~Published on Jul 21, 2017~~

An official portrait of Prince George has been released to mark his fourth birthday

Prince George’s official title and style is His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge.

While his name was announced two days after his birth, he was, from birth, a British prince entitled to the style of Royal Highness under letters patent issued by his great-great-great grandfather, King George V in 1917, which gave the title and style to the eldest son of the Prince of Wales’s eldest son.

HEADS IN THE SAND

I literally translated the title from a very common Puerto Rican saying.

It basically means that, even if anything is right in your face, you won’t see it if you don’t really want to.

bury one’s head in the sand
and hide one’s head in the sand; have one’s head in the sand

Fig. to ignore or hide from obvious signs of danger. 

(Alludes to an ostrich, which is believed incorrectly to hide its head in a hole in the ground when it sees danger.)

I have a dear blogger friend who says the following (I hope he doesn’t mind that I borrowed his words).

It’s kind of  ‘imitation is the greatest form of flattery’.

“At this point it’s not about Drumpf.

I feel betrayed as an American by the House GOP. We expect both parties to protect and defend our Constitution. The GOP’s dereliction of duty is unforgivable.

If we manage to survive as a constitutional democracy, I want them to be punished for this.
