Check 1, 2...am I on the Air?


Recommended Posts

Thanks to those who've been kind enough to initiate threads on my behalf @Cyniqueand @Pioneer1

 

Brotha Troy has provided me with a canvas and wings to paint and soar respectively.

 

I've added my 2 cents to enough threads already for regulars and lurkers alike to read how I roll.

 

I've already been accused of commiserating and complaining and also of being sexist,  ageist, outdated. That's fine. I'm a big dude and Teflon too.

 

I'm gonna keep calling balls and strikes as I see it with a sense of humor. I know all medicine ain't for all patients. Let's get it.😎

This is great news and I look forward to all of your interesting topics!!!

 

 

@Pioneer1

 

Actually, 'twas I who accused you all of commiserating and complaining

when the two of you were moaning about how Blacks don't own anything.

Thanks @Mzuri.🙂

 

Until black folks pool their resources in order to own major institutions, franchises, corporations,  etc., I'm gonna keep calling it out.

 

For example, my money sits in a AfroAmerican owned bank. It  allows them to make loans to our folks.  We need more ownership.😎

You're welcome. Fasten your seat belt.  it might be a bumpy ride.   

 

 

It's all good. A seat belt is no fun. I prefer to ride suicide and fly by the seat of my pants.😎

I would have started a new thread but I cannot from this location:

 

https://www.npr.org/2021/11/02/1051720391/boston-mayor-michelle-wu-elected

 

https://triblive.com/local/gainey-grabs-early-lead-in-pittsburgh-mayoral-race/

 

https://abc7ny.com/mayor-eric-adams-new-york-city-mayoral-race-nyc-curtis-sliwa/11193424/

 

Michelle Wu (Boston) and Ed Gainey (Pittsburgh) are historical firsts in their respective cities as people of color and a woman (Wu)  to serve as mayor.😎

This is great news but it will be even greater when we are

not touted as the first this, that, and the other, but we are 

instead recognized and heralded for our accomplishments

without reference to our ethnicity and/or skin tone or any 

other irrelevant identifiers.

True.  But, we have a long way to go in that regard. 

 

Until then, the first inspires the next that it's not impossible. 😎

The jury has been selected for the Armaud Arbery case and the makeup is 11 white, 1 black:

 

https://www.npr.org/2021/11/05/1052435205/ahmaud-arbery-jury

 

I could have sworn we were in 2021 and not 1951.  Same shenanigans.  😎

 

 

I read in the news that the judge admonished the defense 

for selecting only one Black person, since that county 

consists of 50% Blacks.

 

Expect riots if these people get away with murdering an 

innocent person who was out for a jog.

 

They should all be executed.  

 

BTW, are you unable to start threads again???

It's like an old school TV antenna.  I can start  a new thread if I'm in one particular location, standing still and facing where the sun is shining. 😁

 

Otherwise, I cannot start a new thread when I'm in a different spot.  I could wait until the sun comes up but  that's no fun.😎

I was going to start a thread about the Arbery trial.

I will do it later after I do some research.

In about an hour. 

 

 

 

 

 

That would be great.  I'll save my commentary on the trial for that thread.😎
