Greetings On Line Family:

I received an interesting e-mail from one of our on-line family and I just had to share it with you because it makes a lot of sense.  I'm sure it was a joke, but there is a whole lot of reality in it, and a lot of things I have been saying for years.   Check it out below, and hopefully you will see some of these realities. 

The KKK Disbands: Leaves Their Job To Black Folks

The KKK leader stepped to the podium, his hood lowered around his shoulders and a look of disgust on his face. He said,  "Sorry guys but this will be our last meeting; we're going out of business."

A member stood up in back. "But why sir?"

The leader sighed, "Well, reverend, the niggers are doing a better job getting rid of themselves than we ever did, so we are no longer needed."

There were rumblings and protest. The leader raised his hand to silence the Klan members, and said, "Their rap music says more vile things about black women than we ever thought of."

The members grudgingly nodded in approval. The Imperial Dragon continued: " And their women write books and make songs that demean black men better than my two speech writers ever could, looking down at two men seated in front who lowered their heads.

"They shoot each other constantly ", he continued;" And as  a group, they spend a huge amounts of money on cars, liquor, that stuff they call bling bling, and the proliferation of rap music -- as they talk about all that shit in their magazines -- and nobody needs us to talk about how a lot of their sorry asses keep playing the race and victim cards while complaining that other groups are surpassing them in economic development and supposedly getting more attention in schools. Hell, they even support a so-called "Black Hair" DVD that a white man is making money on , in four sequels at $20.00 a pop, talking about how Koreans have taken over the "black hair" industry without acknowledging that Black entrepreneurs had 100 years to get a monopoly or intrenchment in the industry that Madam C.J Walker founded 100 years ago, but got out-hustled and out-strategized while spending investment capital elsewhere. Let's face it, they're being hoisted by their own petards."  

Some members went looking for dictionaries, while most members nodded as it hit them that their job was finished; that blacks had become their own worst enemy.

The leader shook his head. "It's time to go back to our regular lives as policemen, judges and congressmen, and leave the business of getting rid of niggers to niggers. They are just better at it than us."

He then threw his hood on the ground and walked off the stage. Thus ended the last KKK meeting.

As you must know from my commentaries, in Washington DC for most of the summer there has been a crime emergency in the city.  This is not the first time this has been put into place (crime emergency), but it's starting to get pretty tired, and that's one of the things the article above refers too...Black people killing one another.  Every day you turn on the news and there are stories about young black people being killed throughout the city and suburbs, and I'm sure we are only hearing about the ones who are killed, but not the ones who are wounded or the ones who are mentally traumatized by the effects that this has on our community.  These images that we see in the media are very negative and gives our whole race a PR Problem.  How long will it continue?  I am "sick and tired of being sick and tired" talking about it and hearing about it, so we must find a solution to these problems.  

Many of the things we are doing to ourselves are things the KKK has done to our ancestors, now instead of uplifting ourselves, families and friends, we have fallen into this trap that has been set, and there is no reason for us to fall into this trap, because we all have the same opportunities (which our fathers, mothers, grandfathers and grandmothers have  struggled and died for).  

The unemployment rate is low in the Washington DC area, and it's actually one of the richest areas in the country.  Our children all have the opportunity to attend schools for free, everyone has food on their tables, everyone has a TV, and all the luxuries that are available to us as Americans.  Did you know that the poorest people in America lived in homes with more living space than middle class people in many other countries?  Did you also know most of the people in America that lives under the poverty level all have televisions, all have food, cell phones, and clothes?  This is more than what can be said about what's happening in other countries around the world.  So there is no reason for us to shoot and kill one another.  

Again, I say it all starts at home, we have lots of broken homes, single family parents, and many of the parents have grown up a part of the hip hop generation and the images that their Children see at home are the garbage that they call music and videos now-a-days.  I know ART imitates LIFE, but there is more to life than fighting, killing, booty shaking, skimpy outfits, etc...etc...etc.  What's amazing to me is many of the young children growing up now-a-days instead of wanting to be doctors or lawyers, they would much rather be strippers, video chicks or pimps, simply because that is what they see glorified through the music and videos.  

Also, another reason for the escalation of crime and killings is what's happening in the world.  Our children are taught by example, when you have the President of the United States get on TV making statements like "we are going to hunt them down and kill them" (mind you I like our President), and maybe his statements are true, but sometimes a statement like that can be more destructive than helpful.  Let's not forget the Vice President of the United States mistakenly shoots his friend in the face.  Yes, they say it was an accident, but what do you think would happen to you if you shot someone in the face.  I don't think you would have an opportunity to leave the scene and then explain.  You would be trying to explain from inside a jail cell, and if you've ever been there then you know they don't listen very well.  These are the leaders, if they can make these type of statements and commit these types of acts, why can't we?  

Personally, the media has a lot to do with many of the problems we have today, just think about all the outlets we have now-a-days for news.  News is constantly on TV, in the past we really only got the news at 6:00 pm, now it's on all day long  and seeing these images plays a part in shaping our young people's minds.  Many of these children since they come from single family homes or homes where parents must work very hard and long hours to provide the luxuries that they are accustomed to, there only friend is the TV, and they are left with no one to explain what they are seeing, so this becomes their reality.  

Just last week I was having a discussion with a few of my friends about teenagers and working.  It's funny in Prince George's county Maryland (where I grew up many years ago), now instead of seeing teenagers working in the fast food restaurants, you now see adults working in these establishments, mostly Hispanic adults unable to speak English.  These were jobs that teenagers had, I remember when we turned 16 we could not wait to get an after school job or a summer job, but you don't see that anymore.  Why is this?  One of the things that was brought to my attention by my friends who have children is that teenagers don't leave the house, they stay inside and play video games and watch TV.  This is not a healthy childhood, and work ethic has to be developed at a young age, else you will not have one. 

I thought this was how it was everywhere now-a-days, but since I have moved out of PG County into a racially diverse community, everything is just like it was 20 years ago.  You go to the fast food restaurants and you see teenagers working, you drive through the neighborhoods and you see children playing (which is something I barely ever saw in PG County.)  So the problem is not the whole world, the problem is clearly just us!!!  

The solution is very clear, most of these crimes that are perpetrated in our cities are being committed by youths.  All youths are looking for is some attention and guidance, and all you parents out there, you are the first step in giving them this attention and guidance.  Remember, you decided to bring them into the world (one way or another), so as soon as you make that decision, you have got to be ready to make sacrifices, so this means you have got to find the time to give your children the guidance and attention that is necessary.  You have got to teach them to respect each other, love each other, work together.  Only you can teach them this, you can't expect teachers to do it, nor can you expect the television to teach them...ONLY YOU CAN!!!  I am very concerned about our future generation, because many people have fought and died for these opportunities and freedoms.  

Is there anything you want to share with me to enlighten my thoughts on these problems?  Since I have no children (I am not ready to make that sacrifice), I would like to know from those of you who are parents, especially in the inner city and Prince George's county, do teenagers look forward to getting after school jobs and summer jobs when they turn 16?  Do they play like we used to?  Those of you who are in other areas of the country let me know if you are facing these same problems, because there are solutions, and if any of you find it important, we can work together to change things.

 

 

On a positive note I would like to congratulate Adrian Fenty on his landslide victory in the DC Democratic Primary for Mayor of Washington DC.  He has a big job ahead of him, but he seems to have a plan.  I've had the opportunity to meet Mr. Fenty on many occasions, and from the first time I met him I recall saying that he is going to be the next Mayor of Washington DC.  Mr. Fenty is 35 years old and he has been the Ward 4 City Councilman for the last few years.  One of his main focus is the Schools and Education, which is very important.  I myself had the opportunity to visit the High Schools in Washington DC over the summer, and something really needs to be done to spruce up these buildings.  First of all, many of the newer school buildings look like they have been designed by the same people who designs prisons. There are no windows, you can hardly find the doors and they are very drab concrete structures that are not welcoming or friendly.  As for the older buildings, they are in such disrepair that it is ridicules.  As you know they have installed metal detectors in many of the schools, so when the students walk into the door, they are greeted with a negative non-trusting vibe.  I know this is probably necessary, but there have got to be a better way.  Another thing Mr. Fenty has said is one of his first priorities is to sit down and have a talk with Police Chief Ramsey, who has been the chief for 9 years.  Apparently, Mr. Fenty seems to think he is not doing a very good job, so it seems as thought he might be replaced, and I see why, because crime is out of control in the city.  Personally, I don't think it's the Chief's fault.  Hopefully, the two of them could sit down and work out a plan that can diminish some of these problems.  At least Chief Ramsey has an idea of what is happening in this city, and if they bring someone new at this point he/she will be trying to figure out what is going on, which will not solve the immediate problems.  Mr. Fenty is young and energetic and I'm sure he will be able to tackle this big challenge ahead of him, as long as he does not get caught up with the hype that goes along with the job.  Good Luck to Mr. Fenty!!!!

 

 

Before I close out, I just want to let everyone know our annual trip to Miami for the 2 Carnivals are upon us.  Columbus Day weekend, the Miami and Broward Carnivals takes place.  This is always a great weekend in South Florida.  Many people from around the country converge on Dade and Broward Counties for a weekend of Caribbean excitement. Last year we attended the Miami Carnival, and this year I think we will check out the Broward as we did several years ago.  Both are usually well attended.  One thing I've noticed is a lot of people go to Miami because it's the Caribbean weekend, but when they get there no one seems to know where to go (where the parties are at).  You turn on the radio and of course since there is really no Caribbean radio stations (other than the pirate radio stations which only advertise events that they are affiliated with,), it's hard to get an idea of all the things/events that are happening in the two counties.  So, if you are having an event, or if you have a business in those areas please contact us because we are offering a Carnival Special so that our on-line family will know what to do when they arrive in your town.

As you all were aware this past weekend was The Original Baltimore Carnival, and we attended.  I honestly don't have much to say about this event, but I must recognize the efforts the Organizers have put into making this possible. Good Job!!!!

We also saw 3 of my favorite reggae artists this past weekend, Buju Banton, Capleton and Gregory Isaacs, at the One Love Festival that took place at Crossroads.  Of course this show was great, the attendance was overwhelming, and the performers were outstanding as well.  All I must say about this event is that for a while we were a bit disoriented and very disappointed about the support our music receives by the poor attendance to the shows.  However, the attendance to this show proved that the audience is still there, which we are truly happy to see.

I got some feedback from our on-line family about New York Carnival, and it seems we are getting old and grumpy.  Many folks said they had a nice time.  Of course lots of people were in attendance and yes, there were lots of police and barricades, but "in a nutshell" it was nice.  Some negative things transpired, but everyone felt it was good this year.

This week I was a bit humbled, and for this I would like to "Big Up" Mr. Keith Preddie one of my friends who I previously worked with at DC Caribbean Carnival (board member).   To Mr. Keith Preddie, I thank you so much for taking such an honest and bold stand, and most importantly for voicing your positive opinions on my behalf.

Mr. Keith Preddie would like all on our on-line family to know about a tribute he has planned for one of our friends - Pannist Micheal King, Former leader of T&T Steel Orchestra.  This tribute will take place on October 1, 2006, here in DC at the Trinidad and Tobago Club House, 5123 Georgia Avenue, N.W. Washington DC.  Look out for more details in the upcoming weeks.

Synopsis

Johnny (Vinnie Jones), trying to escape a violent past in Ireland, hides out in Brixton, London, in the world’s least-safe safe house, sandwiched between a drug den run by a Jamaican gangster (Eriq La Salle) and a pirate radio station belonging to a Rasta DJ (Lennox Lewis) .When Johnny’s former comrade (Patrick Bergin) escapes from Brixton Prison determined to derail the Irish peace process, Johnny faces being dragged back into violence and away from his new love (Samantha Mumba). Johnny’s actions ignite a simmering war on two fronts with his drug-dealing neighbor and his former boss Jimmy (Roger Daltrey). Johnny faces questions of race, morality, loyalty – and ultimately survival - played out against a great reggae sound track from legendary DJ-producer Adrian Sherwood

 Miss Trinidad & Tobago New York.

The Miss Trinidad and Tobago New York takes place at the Fashion Institute of Technology, Haft Auditorium, West 27th Street at Seventh Avenue, in Manhattan, set to begin at 7:00 pm.  A dozen young women will be competing for the title.

This year - the 10th year, founder Renee Cummings will pay special tribute to the work of T&T born master hair weaver Clem Lue Yat who will receive a Lifetime Achievement Award along with legendary T&T queen maker Jacqui Koon of the famed House of Jacqui Modeling Agency.

Miss Trinidad & Tobago New York, says Cummings, is celebrated not as a beauty pageant but as a developmental program for young women of Trinidad & Tobago heritage living in New York. The T&T-born Cummings has spent the last decade branding the pageant, adding, "There is nothing more beautiful than an educated woman."  And she has strived to redefine the word beauty. "There is this big myth that beauty comes in a particular, shape, size, and hue but not at Miss Trinidad & Tobago New York," said Cummings. "We embrace diversity and encourage difference. We do not look for generic or archaic cookie-cutter images of beauty. We look for real women with a real contribution to make," Cummings added.

For a preview of this year's line up log on to http://www.missttny.com. Tickets for the show are $40 in advance..
