Decoration Day

grave_decoration

When I was growing up Memorial Day was known as Decoration Day.  And it was not a day for remembering our veterans but a day when you went to the cemetery, cleaned up the grave site of your loved ones who passed away and decorated it with flowers.   Shows you just how much things change and change back. I remember doing this with my Grandmother, Nancy Lee Ankum.

Can the powers that be make it any clearer that there is NO justice in America for Blacks.

It looks like the Good Old White Boy’s Club is back in business.

And we, women – both White and Black – and all minority races who suffered through it during the sixties and seventies remember what that was like.  And if you don’t, I’ve listed two of my personal favorites.  Enjoy. Continue reading

April 3, 2017 Election Results

 HOORAY!  HOORAY!  HOORAY!

Citizens of Maywood, Illinois I salute you.  You voted for the future.  You voted to keep the Black suburb of Maywood, Illinois alive.  All around us, other neighborhoods and villages are prospering but we were falling farther and farther behind economically and socially.  You voted to stop the downhill slide.

You voted OUT Henderson Yarbrough, Readith Ester, and Audrey C. Jaycox.   Maybe now, Maywood will have a chance to grow instead of diminish.

And to Mr. Yarbrough, I say, why didn’t you  have those screaming mind-reading women going up and down the streets of Maywood screaming your name, if they’re so good for our community.  I know they inspired me.  I’m writing now more than I’ve ever done.

Ben Foot In Mouth Carson

carsonendorsestrump_si

Just when I thought it couldn’t get any worse when President Donald J. Trump accused former President Barack Obama of wiretapping, Ben Carson opens his mouth and inserts his foot.

Ben about the only thing the immigrant slaves were thinking was, “Get me the hell out of here by any means necessary.”
