ATHLETIC EXPRESSION

… still applies to this day and age.

The 1968 Olympics Black Power salute was a political demonstration conducted by African-American athletes Tommie Smith and John Carlos during their medal ceremony at the 1968 Summer Olympics in the Olympic Stadium in Mexico City.

After having won gold and bronze medals, respectively, in the 200 meter running event, they turned on the podium to face their flags, and to hear the American national anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner”.

Each athlete raised a black-gloved fist.

FAST-FORWARD TO 2016

“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,”

Kaepernick told NFL Media in an exclusive interview after the game.

“To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”

Something to think about …. “Pictures Saying a Thousand Words”!!


TransM

~~May 24, 2016~~ 

BATHROOM BRAWLS

We all know the saying “pictures say a thousand words”.

These manly, burly men were born in a female body.

I don’t know their personal stories but I can barely imagine the steps they took to become who they really are.

What do you see when you look at them?

Do you think that these human beings belong in a ladies’ bathroom?

I think not.

I can’t let this topic go because it’s simply wrong and discriminatory.

There are many states that are pushing for anti-LGBT laws.

This has to stop.

What say you?

The imaginary predator in America’s transgender bathroom war

You have to pee.

If you’re like 99% of America, you look at pictograms, predictable gender binaries, to guide you toward the appropriate toilet. A person in pants on the left. A person in a dress on the right. If you’re a woman, it’s irrelevant that you have a vagina, are wearing jeans and can’t recall the last time you donned a triangle dress to a dinner party. You know to hang a right, while men go left. The signage isn’t literal, it reveals how culture wants your gender to look.

It reveals what door it wants you to walk through.

The bathroom is a bastion of segregation. It’s where we sort people. Civil rights battles have been fought there before — over blacks, over women, over people with disabilities. Now, with North Carolina and Mississippi passing laws that ban transgender Americans from using bathrooms that align with their gender identity, another battle has begun.

Bruce Springsteen …. Gotta love “The Boss” … !!

THE BOSS SPEAKS

This is old news by now.

I needed to recognize Bruce Springsteen’s actions and comments as they are very close to my heart.

I do not live in North Carolina. I live in Florida.

I am a member of the LGBTQ community and, as such, this law and others that may be coming down the pike, are very worrisome.

Huge steps were made this past year to assure equality of all LGBTQ citizens.

It all stems from the Obergefell v. Hodges SCOTUS decision.

Those pushing laws against a decision already made by the highest court of the land only show how small and petty their hearts are.

They claim “religious freedom”.

In my book, religion dictates kindness and love for all.

This law does the total opposite and shows the real “faces” of those behind such underhanded, scheming actions. Keep in mind that these are government officials elected to abide by the rule of law and the will of the people who got then there.

Thank you, Mr. Springsteen.

A Statement From Bruce Springsteen On North Carolina

APRIL 8, 2016

As you, my fans, know I’m scheduled to play in Greensboro, North Carolina this Sunday. As we also know, North Carolina has just passed HB2, which the media are referring to as the “bathroom” law. HB2 — known officially as the Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act — dictates which bathrooms transgender people are permitted to use.

Just as important, the law also attacks the rights of LGBT citizens to sue when their human rights are violated in the workplace. No other group of North Carolinians faces such a burden.

To my mind, it’s an attempt by people who cannot stand the progress our country has made in recognizing the human rights of all of our citizens to overturn that progress. Right now, there are many groups, businesses, and individuals in North Carolina working to oppose and overcome these negative developments.

Taking all of this into account, I feel that this is a time for me and the band to show solidarity for those freedom fighters. As a result, and with deepest apologies to our dedicated fans in Greensboro, we have canceled our show scheduled for Sunday, April 10th.

Some things are more important than a rock show and this fight against prejudice and bigotry — which is happening as I write — is one of them. It is the strongest means I have for raising my voice in opposition to those who continue to push us backwards instead of forwards.

~~The “Make ‘SMART’ Cool” movement~~

In late 2009 Prince Ea, upset at the present state of the music industry, decided to form a movement named “Make ‘SMART’ Cool”. The “Make ‘SMART’ Cool” movement (SMART is an acronym for “Sophisticating Millions And Revolutionizing Thought“) attempts to “promote intelligence to everyone, everywhere and integrate it with hip-hop.

To create and nurture, without discrimination or preference, a community of free-thinking individuals under the singular purpose of promoting the ideals of education, intelligence, unity and creativity throughout the world at large.”
