I’m saddened by the news boxing great, Muhammad Ali died June 3rd. The man I admired and viewed as a Black activist against the blatant racism that exist in America during his youth and mine. The white man wanted to break him wanted him to conform to their idea of what a Black man should be. But those who lived during those times found in him a voice and hero. I know I felt that way. He was going to be his own man with his own religion and it felt great to see what a REAL man looked like and sounded like. Ali fought the white man in the courts and won. And, we Blacks cheered! They hated him because he was loud, boastful and he belong to, what they considered, a renegade religious group known as the Nation of Islam. Rest In Peace!
Where I use to work they were going through a renovation and we could have suggestions on the design of our new work space. Hooray! But unfortunately, it got out of hand among the boss and one of her employees, not me! He insisted on a bigger office and the boss said no and thus began the man’s crusade for a couple of inches. We ended up with a design less adequate for our needs. Why? Because the boss was taken off her game and was being attack where she was the most vulnerable, resolving conflict. We went from one office with window for the boss and cubicles for us to everyone had an office and center area was open. What’s wrong? Well, where are we going to put our massive amount of equipment and noise? In the only place left, the center area where it was now necessary to buy a noise barrier because of the constant loud noise. Someone missed the BIG picture.
Saying all that to say, the Republic Party missed the big picture too. For the last 8 years they stopped everything they could coming from President Barack Obama. What happen? Republicans have control over Congress so why were you not planning for the next election for president?
Now, look what happened. Trump is the Republican Party’s candidate for president of the United States. This has been an interesting political season. The republicans have a candidate that they didn’t want. I guess that time has come and gone.
This political season is crazy! The Republican Party is terrified that Donald Trump will be their candidate for president and he is winning. Lawd, what they going to do! Well, the news reported that the number 2 candidate – Ted Cruz and number 3 candidate – John Kasich are plotting against the number 1 candidate – Donald Trump. Stay tuned for the Republican Convention. More excitement to come.
Is anyone shocked at the violence. I could see it coming. When Trump made statements that border on prejudice and racist this was bound to happen. How can you run for president and not be inclusive? Geez, I don’t get the logic in stating “I love the poorly educated.” Who are the poorly educated? Is this a political correct term?
I can’t believe what is going on in politics. Especially, the tomfoolery in the republic party. The republics don’t want Donald Trump as the candidate for president of the United States. They pulled out their big guns with Mitt Romney champing the parties cause. He has made it clear they don’t want Donald. But, he is winning. It takes 1300 delegates and the count so far is Trump – 329 Cruz -231 Rubio -110 Kasick – 25. We have a ways to go but trump is winning. Woe is the republican party!
