Greetings On-Line Family

Even though there are lots more important issues to discuss I thought I should mention the following because of its crucial matter, and what is being done to remedy the problem.

Many of you may recall all the controversy that arose after Ex Talk Show Host Don Imus made some negative remarks/comments on the air about some African American female athletes, as well as the gutter words used by actor Michael Richards during his comedy act in Hollywood.  You may also recall as a result of all the discussions and controversies, rap lyrics were scrutinized, targeted and partially blamed for lots of the problems regarding the disrespecting of black females.

I learned recently that a major movement has been taking place around the country headed up by the Reverend Al Sharpton through his National Action Network (NAN) regarding eliminating the use of three derogatory words in music and media (1) the "N" word, the "B" word and the "H" word, which blatantly disrespects women and the African American Community.

The National Action Network (NAN) is one of the leading civil rights organizations in the nation and works extensively to promote a modern civil rights agenda which includes a standard of decency for all people regardless of race, sex, social justice for all communities, and improvement of race relations.  Through (NAN) Rev. Sharpton has established "The Decency Initiative of the National Action Network", which is led by Ms. Tamika Mallory, and which was established in order to address standards in the media and entertainment industries, and whose goal  is to eliminate the use of those three words in music and media ("N"; "B" and "H").  

A couple days ago (8/7/07) Rev. Al Sharpton, Ms. Malloy and their team organized and led rallies, along with dozens of activists across the nation for "A National Woman's Day of Outrage" in more than 20 cities across the US,  demanding that rappers cease use of the "N-word" and degrading lyrics in their music.  The rallies/protests were held outside of major music distributors to (1) stimulate the public to stand united in defense of decency in music; (2)  to mount public pressure on the music industry to adapt a universal standard of respect for all people, and (3) to send a strong signal to the music industry that the people will no longer stand by idly while public airwaves are used to promote disrespect.  These rallies/protests were held in several cities including New York City-NY, Newark-NJ, Los Angeles- CA, Detroit-MI, Atlanta-GA, Miami-FL, Washington DC; Dallas-TX, Jacksonville-FL, Chicago-IL, Las Vegas-NV, Kansas City-MO, Phoenix-AZ, Stamford-CT, Pennsylvania, PA, Columbia-SC, Houston-TX, Richmond-VA, Baltimore-MD, Augusta-GA".

Rev. Sharpton, Ms. Malloy and the many activists around the country have demanded that the music industry eliminate the use of the offensive words "nigga", "bitch" and "ho" in recordings.  NAN stated "No other ethnic group is subjected to denigration for profit by the music industry and the Decency Initiative will continue to demand a universal standard of respect, particularly for all women and African Americans.  

On the day of the rallies/protests Rev. Sharpton led a demonstration at the Motown Museum in Detroit, and during his speech he stated "I'm here at Motown in Detroit as a symbol of when music was not denigrating and was entertaining"  He further asked for  the withdrawal of government-run public pension funds from entertainment companies such as Viacom, Time Warner and Vivendi that "won't clean up their act", he further stated "The opposition has tried to use the argument of free speech, but they don't have the freedom to use peoples' pension funds against their own will and interest".

Clearly, the issue against the use of derogatory words in music and media is certainly alive and well, so If any of you are interested in joining and/or finding out more about these rallies check out the following sites for more details: www.nationalactionnetwork.net or www.nationalactionnetwork.net/html/decency_initiative.html

Congratulations to the Jamaican Embassy and the Jamaican Nationals Association of Washington DC, they really planned and executed a host of events in celebration of Jamaica's 45th Independence!  The weekend was full of great performances by Jamaican artists, wonderful galas and balls, and many special events and concerts.  The most exciting was the great performance by Reggae superstar Shaggy who closed out the weekend celebrations.  A full day of fun, food, drinks and music was held at the Organization of States huge back porch/yard last Sunday.  Of course, we didn't make it to catch the full day of performances, but when we arrived what we experienced was very nice.  A few minor issues came up while greeting and talking with folks from the community regarding DJs of Jamaican decent and bands that primarily play reggae music not being hired to be a part of these celebrations (especially since it was Jamaica's Independence).  After giving it some serious thought we wondered ...if one was celebrating America's independence would one hire a Chinese DJ or band to perform at the celebrations?  I think not!!!  Therefore, this is a valid issue that should be addressed and rectified for next years' event.  All in all what we experienced was great, which was really nice for the 2nd year.  Look out for this exciting event again in 2008, I know it will be just as nice!!!!

Don't forget to check out the Baltimore Trinidad and Tobago Association's "T&T Days in the Park" in Baltimore Maryland this weekend.  See the Flyer below for all the details or check our "Events" Page.

Thanks for reading and your support...enjoy this weekend and the upcoming week!!!
