THE SOCIAL MEDIA AGE

e4adf64e-b666-40d6-b9fe-c71fd004825b

How much are we engaged as a society in modern technology on a daily basis. Today it is practically impossible to function without utilizing some form of data from the internet.

To fill out employment applications, to apply to an educational institution, to find information on local businesses, the lists goes on into mathematical algorithms of an infinite web of the internet.

If you want to participate in this society you must be plugged into the grid of the internet and if you are not on the grid you are practically not participating in the society. Logging into this web you are functioning as an avatar interacting on a global scale, as different entities target you for advertising purposes for profit.

The interesting aspect is the web is shaped by its designers, meaning the originators are ultimately in control of the final destination of their program. How you function in that program, what you can and can’t do, so much so you will have long legal terms of agreements that ninety- nine percent of its users will never read.

Ultimately, participating in someone else’s program not knowing all of the rules, basically means participating in ignorance. Common sense tells us anything done in ignorance can have its consequences, especially when dealing with programs that are designed for profit.

Every social media platform is a new representation of you as a new entity. If you fail to engage yourself with this new age technology you are looked upon as regressive, strange. What we understand is that oftentimes those that were strange in history were found to be the geniuses. Ultimately, this new avatar is like any other program that should be taken advantage of to one’s benefit versus their detriment.

The question in laymen terms are you utilizing the web for your benefit or is it being utilized at your detriment…

Stay tuned for part two of this discussion, on “Today’s Information Age and Social Media…

A PRECIOUS COMMODITY: THE BLACK WOMAN

The mother of the children, the first teacher, the one that has been the backbone of the community of African descent since before slavery. Women such as Harriet Tubman come from this community, who has been historically known for forcing slaves to run for freedom by placing a gun to their head.

This mentality from many of the women of African descent has been at the very heart of the community, as they have made tremendous sacrifices for the future generation.

The woman has been the strength of the families in this community, as the men were suspended in an oppressed condition. Even in today’s society where males of African descent are disproportionately incarcerated at an alarming rate, so much so that one out of three males are under the control of the system, statistically. In some parts of the country that statistic is even worse, as the citizens view their living conditions as a police state. Not only are the males incarcerated but they have also been disenfranchised from receiving adequate employment opportunities because they possess felons on their records.

Sandra Bland was one incident that has awakened the world to the killing of the women of African descent because of the injustice and racism that is prevalent still in America. There are many other victims such as Shelly Frey, who was also murdered in the state of Texas and shot in the neck twice by overzealous law enforcement officers.

There are many other situations and untold stories in regards to the women of African descent being unjustly murdered. It is pass time that these stories got out to the world and it is pass time that these situations are bought to a halt. Anyone can be a victim because of their mere skin color or more so because of the injustice that exists within the fabric of our society.

The community of the world must remain vigilant in speaking out against these injustices, along with educating one another on the appropriate responses to being stopped by law enforcement.

EMPLOYMENT DISCRIMINATION

Employment discrimination is an ugly disease that is eating away at the fabric of our society and has been accepted for too long. Healthy men and women are unable to provide for their families because of a misfortune or infraction in their history. Let me reemphasize history, as double jeopardy is unconstitutional in our society from a legal standpoint; however, it appears to be practiced everyday through employment discrimination.

Let us change this double jeopardy that affects so many lives and stop employment discrimination today by overcoming the barriers that still plague our society. Every citizen regardless of race, religious preference or social background has a right to be gainfully employed. One of the key components to being a productive citizen in society is being able to able to be gainfully employed.

The decision is ours as a people, if we want the discrimination to stop now we can by standing against it. Stand up against discrimination wherever it exists and watch the change take affect…

Voting... A History of Fighting For Freedom

How much progress have we made since the times we were refused the right to vote… Are we on a continuous route to progression or regression… Just less then fifty years ago we were beaten and hosed down for attempting to exercise our rights as citizens…

THE REJUVENATION: OVERCOMING THE FALSE REALITY

Violence is increasing at new highs in some inner city communities. In cities like Chicago the number of deaths due to violent crime has reached peaks like never before. Unfortunately, the methodologies utilize to eliminate these crimes have been quite ineffective and because of this communities live in terror. This terror is not only caused by the so-called criminals but it is also caused by overzealous law enforcement officers.

Understanding the methodologies to move a community that’s plagued with violence from the youth requires dynamic innovation and sincere efforts. This innovation extends to vocational rehabilitation, job creation, and for elders in the community to take the place of their rightful position. Continuous incarceration with no rehabilitation is just a perpetuation of the injustice that victimizes the inner city community as these individuals will once be released to the same community they committed their crimes in. Which highlights it definitely takes a village to raise a child.

Institution building in the inner city community is necessary like never before in these disadvantaged areas, including an understanding of the mind state of these youth.  The book “The Rejuvenation: Overcoming the False Reality,” provides the essentials for understanding the youth in the inner city community.
