Weekly "What's Happening" 


August 14th

Now Reaching Over 35,000 Weekly and Growing Worldwide!


We wish you a great weekend and we thank you for all your support.  Please remember we do appreciate you being a part of our on-line family and again, please know that without you there is no us!!!  

Until next week and please be safe, and enjoy this Weekend.  Again, thanks for all your support!

Greetings On-Line Family:

Congratulations to Judge Sonia Sotomayor who was confirmed and sworn into her position - Supreme Court Justice.  She is the first Latina and third woman to serve on the bench


These past few months we have seen so many historical things taking place in these United States of America.  It all started with an African-American running for the highest position in the land, winning his parties nomination, winning the very competitive Presidential race  and becoming the First African-American President of the United States.  Now, we have witnessed the First Hispanic Supreme Court Judge - Sonia Sotomayor being appointed and now confirmed as a Supreme Court Judge.  What an absolute historic landmark, as well as a profound and significant accomplishment for Hispanics.

On many occasions while viewing her confirmation hearings I became a bit disturbed due to some of the bizarre questions she was asked by the Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee, I actually felt they were quite unfair and prejudiced.  However, she was very pleasant and answered the questions with poised and with total confidence, which I was very happy to observe.

What an accomplishment for a simple woman from a simple life and simple upbringing, who was born to Puerto Rican Parents and grew up in a South Bronx public housing project.  At the early age of 9 Judge Sotomayor's father passed away and her mother who she describes as an inspiration was left to care for, and raise her and her brother while working 6 days a week.

Judge Sotomayor a diabetic at a young age, graduated valedictorian from her Catholic High School in New York, and won a scholarship to Princeton and graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa.  After finishing law school she spent 5 years working with the Assistant District Attorney in Manhattan as an assistant prosecuting violent crimes.  

In 1992, Republican President George H. W. Bush appointed her to the District Court for the Southern District of New York.  In 1994 she worked as in International Corporate Litigator in a private law firm handling cases involving everything from intellectual property to banking, real estate and contract law.  In 1998 Judge Sotomayor was nominated by President Bill Clinton to the  U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and was confirmed by bipartisan support.  She was the first Latin woman to serve in this position.

From my readings about Judge Sotomayor it seems in her three-decade career she has been in public service in nearly every level of the Judicial System, as a prosecutor, trial judge and an appellate judge.  I learned during 17 years on the bench she participated in over 3000 panel discussions and authored roughly 400 opinions.  

We at Arious know The Honorable Judge Sonia Sotomayor will certainly be an excellent Supreme Court Justice and we congratulate her.

August 17th marks the 122nd Anniversary of the great Marcus Garvey's birth, and all across the globe folks are celebrating with lectures, poetry, music and dance.   Please read and enjoy my tribute to this exceptional man, which I wrote some years ago. 

Marcus Garvey was born in St. Ann's Bay, St. Ann, Jamaica in 1887, and he was known as a black Prophet, Philosopher and an extremely influential speaker.  His vision, which he was determined to carry out was the liberation of his people.  Many believed he was a Messiah, a true Prophet, giving the prophesy of the coming of the redeemer who was going to "deliver the black man from bondage, and who had come to save a people who for centuries had been exploited by another race".  He promoted faith in the Almighty Creator of Africa and the Black race, "who created his Black sons and daughters in his own image and likeness".  

As I learned more about Garvey, it was clear to see he gave millions of Caribbean people a sense of pride and so enabling them to take their place in the world, Garvey stated "Never allow anyone to convince you of inferiority as a man.  Rise in your dignity to justify all that is noble in your manhood/womanhood as a race".  

Garvey dignified African beauty and promoted a "Back to Africa" campaign with a plan for resettlement in Liberia.  He was truly a powerful speaker and when he spoke it was electrifying, he was known to have a "silver tongue", and with this tongue and the words that came from his lips he inspired 11 million people to come into his Association -  The Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA), and African Communities League (ACL).  Garvey organized the UNIA-ACL to promote a spirit of race, Love and Pride; to administer to and assist the needy; to reclaim the fallen of the race; to establish universities, colleges and secondary schools for the further education and culture of the boys and girls of the race; and to conduct a worldwide commercial and industrial intercourse (to fund a strong Negro nation.)  The motto for the UNIA- ACL was/is "One God!  One Aim!  One Destiny", the association sought to unite "all the people of African ancestry of the world into one great body to establish a county and Government absolutely their own."  He promoted a steamship company "The Black Star Steamship, Co."  that would provide transportation for blacks to return to Africa.  

Garvey traveled everywhere observing the working conditions and the living conditions of blacks throughout the region.  He visited Costa Rica, Panama, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Honduras, Columbia,  Venezuela, London, and especially all across the West Indies; and clearly these poor conditions saddened him and made him more determined to obtain his goals.  He also witnessed in the West Indies the petty divisions that divided the islands, which he spoke about in his lectures and speeches "...You all know how the different West Indians despise each other, how the Jamaican despise the Barbadian and the Barbadian despise the Jamaican, and all the other islands hate each other.  The UNIA was founded in 1914 after my experience of travel in South America, in Central America, in all the West Indian Islands and in Europe seeing the need for greater unity amongst the black people of the World."  "Therefore, the American Negroes and the West Indian Negroes are one, and they are relics of the great African race which was brought into the Western World and kept here for 400 years".

Marcus Garvey through his plight to accomplish his goals endeavored lots of difficulties, as with every prophet throughout time.  Undoubtedly, it seemed he was loathed, criticized,  persecuted, maligned, scorned, and was even convicted (which his sentence was commuted by President Coolidge), and deported, but he stayed strong, held on to his celestial work with courage, resoluteness and strength, which enabled him to rise continually from whatever misfortunes he suffered.  He successfully built and consolidated the UNIA into an international organization, and because of his efforts by 1920 the association boasted over 1,100 branches in more than 40 countries (many located in the US which had become a base for the UNIA), he also had several branches in Central America and in the Caribbean countries.) 

Marcus Garvey was truly a good man, that gave hope to a lot of black people and the black race on a whole.  He is considered in Jamaica a hero and was proclaimed by Jamaica as its First National Hero.  After his death in 1940, he was laid to rest in London due to travel conditions during World War II, however his remains which was exhumed and taken back to Jamaica  now lies at a shrine in National Heroes Park in Jamaica.   I close my piece on Marcus Garvey with one of his famous proclamation "Look for me in the whirlwind or the storm, look for me all around you, for, with God's grace, I shall come and bring with me countless millions of black slaves who have died in America and the West Indies and the millions in Africa to aid you in the fight for liberty, Freedom and Life."
