by Palooke I cannot stress this enough: If you are called to jury duty DO NOT TRY TO AVOID IT!! I know you're probably thinking you have better things to do. In reality, as a citizen of the United States, few responsibilities are more important than serving on a jury, especially if you are a minority.
by Jill-Capri Simms Whether in a private club, career, political arena, community or even church organization, if you have a nagging suspicion that you've been blackballed, there's a pretty good chance you have. Here are five sure-fire ways to effectively and efficiently deflate the ill effects of this invisible nemesis.
For starters, blackballing is not to be confused with public ridiculing or open slandering. In the political arena or even at a comedy house, mudslingers and hecklers are quickly identified. The heckler actually wants the center-stage; they want the video tape to roll; they thrive on attention. These brash and staunchly opinionated opponents posture their own truths by brazenly challenging anyone who should differ. They continuously gab and blab because they want to be heard by all that want to listen, and even those who would rather tune them out.
CLEVELAND — After more than a year of investigation, a grand jury declined to bring charges against either of the two police officers involved in the fatal November 2014 shooting of Tamir Rice, a 12-year-old boy who was playing with a toy weapon in a Cleveland park. (Washington Post)
by Attorney Natalie Jackson Farrakhan proved to the US government that HE is the only (POC) leader that can rally one Million Black, Latino, Native American and Muslim (mostly young) people (the people most discriminated by and disenfranchised by this government). Yesterday, he made an arguably successful bid to prove that HE is the only elder leader that the young, angry, and disenchanted can respect as being unbought and unbossed and unapologetically so.
by Pam Keith - Candidate for U.S. Senate Just when I think I can't be any more outraged at the prevalence of police shootings, just when I am sure that I have maxed out in terms of shock, sadness and outrage, something happens to make me even MORE enraged. The video of the shooting of Laquan McDonald is shattering. It shows an officer shooting a young man SIXTEEN TIMES, who was nowhere near the officer, not lunging or making any threatening move, and .....several other officers on the scene WHO DID NOTHING!!!!
by Cynthia Wheeler I am unsure if people are aware Florida Supreme Court created a Commission to address the "crisis in civil courts" aka family court. I have been communicating with the Commission and advocating for the Commission to create a committee within the Commission for people like myself that want to play a role in improving the Crappy Dysfunctional court system we presently have.
