CAN NEVER TAKE AWAY HER SUPERPOWERS

You all know what happened

She is coming back after her pregnancy, post a life-threatening complication after developing a pulmonary embolism, a controversy about her compression ‘catsuit’ (custom-made by Nike), her decision to wear a tutu and the high stakes of the event.

To add insult to injury, she was fined $17,000.

And then, Mark Knight, Australian cartoonist, decided to rub salt in the wound!

I know what I think about her!

The 2018 US Open final between Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka will be remembered for all the wrong reasons

The match was guaranteed to make history no matter what.

Williams was gunning for her 24th Grand Slam tournament win, a number that would have tied the all-time record for the most Grand Slam singles tournament wins in history.

And Osaka was hoping to be the first Haitian-Japanese player in history to win a Grand Slam.

In the end, Osaka defeated Williams 6-2, 6-4, ensuring the latter – but her achievement was overshadowed by what happened in the match.

‘This Is America’ …. “🎼🎼 Childish Gambino …. Did you Catch all the Themes? 🎼🎼 …. “!!

THIS IS AMERICA VIDEO … IN A NUTSHELL

Did you catch all the themes in Childish Gambino’s “This is America”?

Quite a strong message.

The title is right on target:

This IS America!

Be forewarned.

Some content may be offensive to some who may shy away from the sad reality.

I had to look up the lyrics to get the full meaning.

How Childish Gambino’s ‘This Is America’ Indicts and Challenges Its Audience
The controversial new music video by Donald Glover and Hiro Murai has amassed millions of YouTube views while exposing viewers to the horrors of the black experience in America.

~IRA MADISON III~

Have you ever been grateful for something that you find aesthetically revolting?

The caustically violent “This Is America,” Donald Glover’s latest single and video under his musical moniker Childish Gambino, is exactly that.

The song, which blends jazz, hip-hop, and South African melodies to deliver a scheming-up mantra of “get your money, black man,” takes on an entirely different tone when paired with its Hiro Murai-directed music video that depicts Glover maniacally dancing while simultaneously murdering black people in pastoral tableaus.

Informative video but there were some other things I picked up/read about:

1. His pants are supposed to be similar to the basics of confederate army uniforms
2. SZA (the women at the end) is representing lady liberty passively watching this all going on, which is ironic since she’s the symbol of freedom.
3. The horse followed by the police car is a biblical reference “And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him.” – Revelation 6:8 “
4. The cars shown in the video are all 80s-90s make. They’re not like the typical rap cars you see in videos.
5. Kids on their cellphones represent how passive we are when things happen in front of us. There has been many occasions when something fatal could have been stopped, but people were too busy recording it on their phones.
Anyways! That’s a few takeaways I’ve had.

Good art always provokes thought and conversation.

I love how this video has done that.

Keith Olbermann, #107 …. “😡 More Moral Than Drumpf …. The Red Wings and the Torch Maker 😡 …. “!!

AMERICAN GROWN TERRORISM

The hatred, bigotry and racism, typical of the White Supremacy in the United States rises again.

To make matters worse, it’s endorsed and fed by the ‘so-called president of the nation.

Disgusting, despicable, deplorable!

 BuzzFeed News reporter Blake Montgomery

“Most white supremacist and Nazi arrived armed like a paramilitary force – carrying shields, protective gear, rods and, yes, lots of guns, utilizing Virginia’s loose firearm laws. They used militarized defensive maneuvers, shouting commands at one another to ‘move forward’ or ‘retreat,’ and would form a line of shields or a phalanx – it’s like they watched ‘300’ a few times – to gain ground or shepherd someone through projectiles. It seemed that they had practiced for this.”

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.

Keith Olbermann series called “The Resistance” continues.
He has posted installment #107.
The video speaks for itself.
If this resonates with you, good.
If it doesn’t, just scroll away to the next blog.
Thank you!

A Puerto Rican Moment …. “It Happens …. Bandera, Pava & Machete …. PR symbols …. “!!


LadyLib

~~March 27, 2017~~ 

“PUERTO RICAN-NESS”

These are very recognizable symbols of the Puerto Rican people.

The ‘pava‘ is the straw hat used by the ‘campesinos‘ while working the sugar cane fields using their ‘machetes‘.

The Puerto Rican flag is the utmost symbol of our Island.

The ‘mono-estrellada‘ … one star only.

The Statue of Liberty is also a very important symbol to the Puerto Rican diaspora.

Many Puerto Ricans moved to New York in search of a better life,

(my parents included in the 1930’s).

All memories etched in my mind, heart and soul!

BREATHE AND PUSH

I found this video yesterday.

As it frequently happens, I found it by chance.

Scrolling through Facebook.

It’s a bit long but it’s worth every minute.

It’s a very badly needed message.

This is a video from New Years Eve 2016.

It applies more and more … as these 50+ days of ‘leadership‘ have gone by.

I think it’s a gem!

Always hang on to hope.

~This is the message I have been craving to hear~

My ears ache after listening to line after negative line in the news, reading the political drama on Facebook, and reading my family’s and friends’ opinions.

These words are weighing me down with heavy, uneasy feelings about the future.

We’ve marched, signed petitions, and called our senators, and the news is not changing. People are tired. I am tired. Life doesn’t seem fair.

We need a pep talk – and I’ve found one.

Valerie Kaur‘s powerful and uplifting look at our world today is so refreshing in this chaotic climate.

As an award-winning filmmaker, civil rights lawyer, media commentator, Sikh activist and interfaith leader, Kaur’s work of storytelling inspires social change. This video from New Year’s Eve has the call for 2017. I needed this passionate and beautiful speech. Hers is a realistic voice asking me a valid question:

What if this is our nation’s great transition?

Sikhism is a monotheistic religion, and the basic Sikh belief is represented in the phrase Ik Onkar meaning “One God.”

Sikhism was founded in the Punjab region in India in the 15th century by Guru Nanak Dev. Sikhism broke from Hinduism due, in part, to its rejection of the caste system.

SIKH SYMBOL

It consists of three weapons and a circle: the khanda, two kirpans and the chakkar which is a circle.

It is the military emblem of the Sikhs.

It is also part of the design of the Nishan Sahib. A double edged khanda (sword) is placed at the top of a Nishan Sahib flag as an ornament or finial.

~What is the goal of A Day Without a Woman?~
The goal is to highlight the economic power and significance that women have in the US and global economies, while calling attention to the economic injustices women and gender nonconforming people continue to face.

 We play an indispensable role in the daily functions of life in all of society, through paid & unpaid, seen & unseen labor.  

We must have the power to control our bodies and be free from gender norms, expectations and stereotypes.

We must free ourselves and our society from the constant awarding of power, agency and resources disproportionately to masculinity, to the exclusion of others.

We must end the hiring discrimination that women, particularly mothers, women of color, women with disabilities, Indigenous women, lesbian, queer and trans women still face each day in our nation.  

We believe that creating workforce opportunities that reduce discrimination against women and mothers allow economies to thrive. Nations and industries that support and invest in care-giving and basic workplace protections – including benefits like paid family leave, access to affordable childcare, sick days, healthcare, fair pay, vacation time, and healthy work environments – have shown growth and increased capacity.

We believe in Gender Justice and the protection of the human rights of gay, lesbian, bi, queer, trans, Two-Spirit and gender nonconforming people.

We believe in an economy powered by transparency, accountability, security and equity.

We believe that all workers must have the right to organize and fight for a living minimum wage, and that unions and other labor associations are critical to a healthy and thriving economy for all. Undocumented and migrant, farm workers and domestic workers must be included in our labor protections, and we stand in full solidarity with the sex workers’ rights movement. We recognize that exploitation for sex and labor in all forms is a violation of human rights.
