Who I’m NOT Voting For

Hello beautiful people, its been a while since I’ve written anything simply because I’ve been focusing on what I have to do in my life. We all know its difficult to help others when you haven’t helped yourself. But since its election time with perhaps two of the most despised United States presidential candidates in history, I’ve decided to tell you who I’m not voting for.

Before I get too deep the first question that I pose to the reader is, “Are you voting out of fear or are you voting our of hope?”

I asked this question because we should keep in mind that these campaigns are typically based on playing off of individuals fears, rather than their hopes and aspirations. For example, Trump has a lot of right-wing power because he preaches that Mexicans are murderous and rapist so a wall would cut down on America’s overall murder and rape problem. Many individuals are surprised that hes galvanized such a following, but it only makes sense. The Republicans have been pissed off since before Obama’s inauguration as President of the United States and for the past eight years have had an egg on their faces, while at the same time making Obama’s presidency as difficult as they possibly could.

Lo and behold the anomaly known as Trump….

Trumps rhetoric is definitely reminiscent of the times before affirmative action and his support speaks volumes. Its a direct reflection of what a lot of white right wingers talk about at the dinner table with their families, which is utterly sickening to think about. But what the Republicans don’t like about Trump is that he’s too honest and that’s bad for big business.

Our next contestant is Hillary Clinton, known for whipping a bottle of hot-sauce or two out of her purse. She coined the term “super-predators” and suggested that these animals be brought to heel, particularly the darker skinned individuals. If one were to closely examine the history of the KKK you would discover that it came out of a radical group of bitter southern Democrats bent on making life living hell for black people. In 1964 Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act and with that the Democrats had won over the black vote in its entirety.It was actually the Republicans in the North who fought along side slaves in the Civil War, these are minor details to know and should put these parties in a different light.

One should also note that under the Clinton administration the 1994 Crime Bill was initiated. It implemented the three-strikes  mandatory life sentencing for repeat offenders and $9.6bn in funding for prisons. Yeah they say crime was down, thats because everybody was getting locked the hell up for life. It left black communities shattered, in shards, nearly lifeless. In the 22 years since the bill was passed, the federal prison population more than doubled. In 1994, the Bureau of Prisons held 95,162 inmates; today that number is 214,149. I don’t want another Clinton in office but, we’ve been duped time and time again. Lets be honest, neither party has nothing on paper thats for the uplift of black people. We should be doing for ourselves regardless. If you are voting for Hillary are you voting for the stanky-leg dancing, hot-sauce slanging version or the round ’em up, lock ’em up version. Pick your poison.

Not only that you have to research who’s endorsing these candidates but in Hillarys case she’s getting funded by George Sorors. September 16, 1992, is also known as, Black Wednesday, the day that George Soros broke the Bank of England. It has been reported that he made a $1 billion profit that day, which cemented his reputation as one of the greatest forex traders who has ever lived. He’s also been known to speak out against gun violence only to buy up the stock when its dirt cheap. This hypocrisy should be noted and we shouldn’t be fooled by neo-liberal fascist with right wing agendas. Its not in the best interest of the people.

Voting for a 3rd party candidate is the only viable option because at least if the party gets 5% of the vote it forces to open up the debates and breaks the bi-partisan system.

As voters we should be taking the time out of our day to actually examine what each candidate has to offer, not just vote out of tradition or worse than that, fear. Go to ballotready.com and check out the candidates for yourself before you vote cuz this ain’t yo mamas election.

Remember a vote for the lesser of two evils is still an EVIL

Chicago’s Filthy Secret…Drink Up!

The Disgusting Problem


In the wake of the Flint, Michigan water crisis Chicago has its own problems to deal with and the proof is in the water. Well, more so the LEAD in the water that comes from outdated pipes that costs millions of dollars to repair. The problem with lead poisoning, for those that don’t know, shows a direct relation to decreases in IQ, behavioral disorders and even juvenile delinquency.

“In an interview, Dr. Needleman emphasized: “I’m not saying that lead exposure is the cause of delinquency. It is a cause and one with the biggest handle to prevention.” He explained: “Lead is a brain poison that interferes with the ability to restrain impulses. It’s a life experience which gets into biology and increases a child’s risk for doing bad things.”

The New York Times, February 7, 1996

To make it hit home even harder the Chicago Tribune reported, “Mirroring a pattern that dates to at least 2003, most of the homes tested last year are concentrated on the city’s Far Northwest and Southwest sides — areas where cases of childhood lead poisoning are rare.” This was over 13 years ago and its plain to see that even then they knew how bad lead poisoning was so they covered it up.The data from the 2003 study may show that there were extremely low incidences of increased but that’s only because the people in that area have access to lead free water!

Good job Chicago!

The same article reported, “Most big cities, including New York and Boston, stopped using lead pipes during the 1940s and ’50s. Chicago’s plumbing code required lead service pipes until the day they were banned nationwide in 1986.”

Here’s an excerpt from the  Chicago Tribune:

“Banning lead in paint and phasing it out of gasoline has led to a steady decline in childhood lead poisoning. But a 2015 Tribune investigation revealed it remains a pernicious problem in the same poor, predominantly African-American neighborhoods on the West and South sides that have given Chicago a national reputation for violence and academic failure.”

The latter sentence is definitely offensive to my people and can I say it’s not true? No. But they forgot to mention the fact that lead poisoning at an early age contributes to an increase in aggressiveness and impulsive behavior not to mention an effort to maintain the myth of the super predator. It’s not that our people are savages or dumb the image of black people has been tainted by the media and we buy into it every time.

It’s important to take note that the areas with access to the cleanest water sources, are also the areas that receive the most TIF money:tif-moneys-600.jpgChicago Reader, 2016


The Solution

Obviously the overall solution would be to repair the pipes, but as a result taxes would have to go up if the city takes the bill. We should unify in arms just as Philadelphia did and file a class action lawsuit against the The City of Chicago and the Department of Water Management, since its been managed so poorly. >>>>> www.theguardian.com/environment/2016/jun/03/water-lead-testing-cheats-philadelphia-flint-crisis

In the short run what we CAN utilize methods of purifying water. One would be to apply a water filter onto every faucet in your residence, this should decrease your exposure to lead. Once your water is filtered you should alkalize it to regulate your pH. pH stands for “potential for hydrogen” and is important to our cellular growth. Keeping our bodies pH in an alkalized state is the first defense against disease since diseases thrive in acidic environment. Another option would to simply buy bottled alkaline water such as Essentia.

34 CPS schools with elevated lead levels:

Beasley (1 drinking fountain, 3 sinks)
Beidler (1 sink)
Blaine (1 drinking fountain, 1 area in boiler room)
Blair Early Childhood Center (1 drinking fountain and 3 sinks)
Brentano (1 drinking fountain and 1 sink for hand washing in kitchen)

Reilly (4 sinks, 1 drinking fountain)
Spencer Technology Academy (2 classrooms, a kitchen, 1 bathroom)

Wentworth (4 drinking fountains)

 

THERE’S NO DOUBT IN MY MIND THAT LEAD POISONING FROM BIRTH THROUGH ADULTHOOD CONTRIBUTES SIGNIFICANTLY TO AN INCREASE IN CRIMINAL ACTIVITY, NOT ONLY IN CHICAGO BUT NATIONWIDE. FURTHERMORE, WE MUST REMAIN COGNIZANT OF WHAT MAINSTREAM MEDIAS GOAL IS AND THAT IS TO DEMONIZE BLACK PEOPLE AS WELL AS OVER PUBLICIZE WHAT HAPPENS IN BLACK COMMUNITIES. INTRACOMMUNAL VIOLENCE IS PUBLICIZED MORE IN ORDER TO PUSH THE MYTH OF THE SUPER PREDATOR. WE’RE NOT SAVAGES THE SYSTEM IS SAVAGE FOR SPREADING CONFUSION AND MISINFORMATION!

In my opinion, it shows how the City of Chicago and the Department of Water Management has failed us and therefore be held responsible for their lackadaisical approach in distributing this pertinent information. When Los Angeles and New York changed their pipes in the 1940s and 50s Chicago should’ve followed suit. Chicago used lead pipes up until they were banned in the late 80s so it’s no wonder why we see exponential increases instances of violence in the Windy and nation wide. If any of this information disturbs you please call your local officials and Chicago’s Department of Water Management at (312) 744-4420.

Ashé/Ase (ah-SHAY)

Ashe is a component of the African philosophical concept through which the Yoruba of Nigeria conceive the power to make whatever one says happen, produce change and  command authority. It can be used in a variety of contexts and in my opinion is comparable to the Chinese philosophy of ch’i/qi (chee).
Ashe is in every living and non-living thing, it is the life force that drives. Its important to point out that this is a force that is transmissible; conducted by material or symbolic meanings and can be accumulated.
In it’s spiritual context it means “so let it be/ may it be so”. Depending on what you believe Ashe can be used interchangeably with amen.

Silvestri: The Sneaky Salmon

On May 10th 2016 I was asked if I would like to voice my concern about a resolution proposed by Commissioner Silvestri, the Commissioner of the 9th District of Cook County . The major theme of the proposal was to change the position of Cook County Circuit Clerk from elected, to appointed. This would mean that the people wouldn’t have a say so in who they feel is the best person for the job, and only the Board of Commissioners would decide.

EP-710159938.jpg&updated=201010182154&MaxW=800&maxH=800&noborder

 The problem with this is that 17 people, who all have salaries over $100,000, couldn’t possibly represent the people in an effective manner with the Peoples’ interest in mind. This simple fact was all of the ammunition I needed to attack these fascists, though there was more evidence to bring to light. The hearing for Mrs. Dorothy Brown was on the 11th so I was hard pressed to find more information to back up what I would say the following day.

Keep in mind that this “resolution” was brought to the table shortly after Mrs. Brown asked for a raise; the last time her position got a raise was 16 years ago, and this after the Democratic Party, chaired by Preckwinkle, endorsed Michelle Harris.  How can you expect a person to do better than the previous year when expenses go up each year, and you won’t give them the resources they need to function effectively?

dorbro1

When the resolution concerning Dorothy Brown came up, Silvestri saw all of those African faces in there, and decided to cut his losses. It was at least 30 Dorothy Brown supporters in there, and he definitely didn’t want us to turn up! Though this was just to shut us up collectively because they don’t want certain messages broadcast (the hearings are live), and they don’t want YOU to THINK for YOURSELF!!! Once they told us that we couldn’t speak, I left, but this is what I wrote:

Good morning,

My name is Quintin Martins representing B.R.O.T.H.E.R.S. Inc. and I’m here to voice my concern regarding Mr. Silvestri’s proposal. This proposal would change the Circuit Clerks position from elected to appointed which means that  we would have to rely on the 17 individuals on the board of commissioners to choose a clerk that’s in the interest of the people. That’s 17 votes out of the 1,171,349 votes for circuit clerk, which is not even half of a half of 1 percent. This, Mr. Silvestri, is an absolute spit in the face of democracy and the fact that this is even up for discussion is disgusting. Lets be clear about what this is really about, the powers that be became disappointed that Ms. Brown rightfully won her seat as Cook County Circuit Clerk. When she asked for a raise she was declined and is expected to perform better than she did the year before, even  though she has 9 times as many employees as her associates. Its obvious that their priority is to stifle Ms. Brown in any way, but shouldn’t their priority be to the people and not the pocket? Maybe if the democratic party was concerned with representing the people instead of splitting votes then maybe, just maybe she wouldn’t have won. I have my own proposal, let’s focus on an appointed position we would like to see on the ballot in the future and petition for that!

 

The American 1%: Social Class Divide on Crack

Who Rules the United States?

The United States of America is supposed to be, by design, a representative democracy, but who really runs the United States? Two perspectives that hypothesize on who runs the United States is the functionalist and conflict perspectives.

Crucial to this question, is a sound understanding of the fundamental reasoning that make up both perspectives; the demand and supply of authority. Also key, is an understanding of citizenship, democracy, and capitalism. Lastly, it is imperative to have a strong grasp on the U.S. Political Infrastructure, and how all these factors are waged into the arguments of the functionalist and conflict perspectives. The first step in this inquisition is to come to an agreed definition of authority, which is the common goal of any government; the monopoly over power and the use of violence.

 

Authority and You!

Authority, is the extension of power by one group, or government, over the larger population of people within a defined territory. Functionalists view states, or governments, as having arisen from the necessity of social groups, to protect the masses of people from anarchy, which is unrestrained disorder and crime. Conflict theorists would agree that an unrestrained government is detrimental, but they differ in that they believe the current government to be functioning in a way that doesn’t contribute to the welfare and longevity of its citizens. There are three types of authority that societies recognize: traditional authority, rational-legal authority, and charismatic authority. Traditional authority is the type of authority that is extended over a social group by way of culture and customs. Rational-legal authority is a type of authority that is recognized by the people as legitimate due to its establishment in the laws of the land. Charismatic authority is the type of power offered to individuals based on their outstanding traits, which prompt others to follow them. This brings us to the question of the natural forces that bring people within a defined territory together; citizenship.

Citizenship: Consented Violence

Citizenship is the concept that birth (residence or naturalization), is the basis upon which individuals are afforded basic rights. This is one of the great benefits of this country; this is the idolized land of opportunity. The place where anyone can become Steve Jobs. The part of the story they leave out is that during that struggle for opportunity, you will face unfathomable obstacles, and if you are a woman or a person of color, you will encounter far more pressing odds on your pursuit to the American dream. Poverty and social class divisions do exist in this country, which brings us to the concept of universal citizenship, which addresses discrimination with its emphasis on everyone having the same basic rights. Now, let’s focus in on the guiding principles of this country. Before we dive more into the country’s political infrastructure, let’s get an understanding of capitalism, and how it plays a role in our country’s social makeup.

corporate

Capitalism: The American Nightmare

Capitalism, is the concept around which the private ownership of the means of production, and the desire and pursuit of profit controls the supply and demand of economic markets. There are two types of capitalism that currently exist in societies: lassiez-faire capitalism, and welfare capitalism. Laissez-faire capitalism is unrestrained by government, and is commonly called hands-off capitalism. Welfare capitalism is a form of capitalism where government encourages the private ownership of land, but regulates capitalism to ensure the welfare of the masses of the nation’s population. Conflict theorists coined the name power elite, to refer to the 1% of Americans, made up of the super-rich, heads of military, top legislators, but most importantly, the heads of this country’s top corporations. They say that it is this small group of individuals who make the decisions that control the major functioning of the United States of America. This brings us to how both the functionalists and conflict perspectives view capitalism, as it relates to the U.S. political infrastructure.

The U.S. Political Infrastructure

The infrastructure of the United States political system is bipartisan, with several smaller roadways that we will collectively refer to as third parties. Minus the presence of these almost non-existent third parties, the U.S. political system is dominated by democrats and republicans. Democrats are associated publicly with advocating for the welfare of the masses of the population. Republicans are associated publicly with advocating for the interest of the wealthy. The supposed common denominator is that both parties adopt the philosophy of free education, a strong military, and the freedom of religion, speech, and assembly of the American people. Functionalists view this system of representative democracy, fused with the safe guard of this system’s checks and balances system, as sufficient and effective, as it grew directly from the need of the people to have a government. They also see capitalism as necessary, as both parties of this country’s bipartisan arrangement view capitalism as essential to the welfare of our economy. Conflict theorist, on the reverse, sees the influence of capitalism on policy, as an illegitimate form of control (coercion) of the people by corporations; the power elite, or ruling class. This power elite is comprised of the super-rich 1% of Americans, who head the country’s top corporations, are top ranking military officials, and are our country’s most influential elected officials. The conflict perspective also provides an analysis on the hierarchy of the power elite group. The three groups are not equal in power, but because all three segments of the group view capitalism as crucial to American economy, corporations wield more power in this group makeup.

power elite

In Context: Functionalist and Conflict Perspectives

There are two perspectives on who rules the United States of America; the functionalist and conflict perspectives. Authority is the extension of power over the people, fused with the exclusive monopoly on the use of violence. Key to answering this question, is the gaining of understanding around both the functionalist and conflict theories. Also important, is the understanding of authority, capitalism, and democracy. Lastly, you must have a sound understanding of capitalism, and how it is perceived to fit into the scheme of the United Stets political infrastructure. No one perspective covers each point that I believe is important and accurate, and no one party can represent all the ideals of every constituent, but understanding who makes the decisions in this country is key to understanding how to change the decisions that are being made to cause latent dysfunctions in our economy. Signing off, but never offline!

The Trump Effect and Its Global Implications

 

This report is about the “Trump Effect” what its done so far and what it will do in the future. It will examine the effects of Trumps candidacy on students, teachers, minority groups as well as its socioeconomic consequences on a national and international scale.

National Effects
Whether you know it or not the “Trump Effect” has unfortunately taken its toll on America and the presidential race. Its more than obvious that his toxic hate rhetoric has reverberated, even through different candidates desperate for support. Since he is the Republican front runner coupled with his influence, other politicians have adopted this outrageous hate rhetoric to garner more supporters. This inhumane rhetoric is mainly aimed at the Latino and Muslim American communities and unfortunately 31 states have implemented strategies to terrorize and alienate these groups.

In Texas, Gov. Greg Abbott has sued the federal government and a nonprofit relief agency to keep refugees out. Indiana’s refusal forced one family to seek refuge in Connecticut. Georgia is seeking to deny displaced Syrians federal benefits, like food stamps, and keep their children out of school.2 These are just a couple of the examples we’ve seen thus far so imagine how many more inhuman policies are being set in place by various politicians and their sponsors.

18058245844_5be9789231_trump

According to an article published by the LA Times4, Donald Trump in office would be detrimental to the nations’ as well as the global economy. The reason being is because his policies are “vague, grandiose or politically unfeasible”. A major sector that would plummet is healthcare because he wants to repeal the Affordable Care Act otherwise known as Obamacare.

Over the past four years under ACA the S&P Healthcare index has risen 86%. This means that any disruption of growth in that sector would most likely have a negative impact on healthcare stocks.

Mr. Trump also plans on enforcing tariffs on exports from China and other nations. A tariff is “a tax or duty to be paid on a particular class of imports or exports”. With that being said China and others, may impose their own tariffs in response, which would most likely result in a tax war. Right now rice is $2.44 a pound, now imagine if it jumped up to $7.80 post-Trump. Puts it in perspective doesn’t it?

Trumps tax proposal is extremely far fetched because he’s proposing tax cuts across all income levels. It sounds good on paper, but what wasn’t said is that it’ll create a $9.6 trillion federal deficit over the next decade which would directly affect federal spending.5
On April 13th, 2016 the Southern Poverty Law Center1 released a study that examined the effects of Trumps’ presidential campaign on students as well as teachers. The survey was conducted by Teacher Tolerance and ranged from K-12 both teachers and students alike. Here are the highlights:

• More than two-thirds of the teachers reported that students—mainly immigrants, children of immigrants and Muslims—have expressed concerns or
fears about what might happen to them or their families after the election.

• More than half have seen an increase in uncivil political discourse.

• More than one-third have observed an increase in anti-Muslim or anti-immigrant sentiment.

• More than 40 percent are hesitant to teach about the election.

Unfortunately his campaign is effecting how our children will think in this country for decades.

This effect can be seen beyond twelfth grade as seen in Southern Illinois University at
Carbondale where racial tensions have increased with Trump’s hate rhetoric. He makes it cool to be discriminatory and prejudiced which is detrimental to stability of our society. One instance describes how Leilani Bartlett, a freshman at SIUC, attended a political forum in her dorm and racial slurs began to be thrown around. A short time after Leilani posted a video on Facebook that’s garnered attention. Another instance at the university describes how two black fraternity members attempted to enter a white fraternity’s party and were denied entry. Who really knows what those reasons were.

1457808470_734002_1457855873_sumario_normal

International Implications

On an international scale if Trump becomes president he would damage the global economy and the small ties we have in the Middle East will indefinitely be severed. In an article published by The Guardian an organization called the Economist Intelligence Unit updated their list of global threats, and in twelfth place was the possibility of Donald Trump being sworn into America’s presidential office. The Economist Intelligence Unit an independent business within The Economist Group providing forecasting and advisory services through research and analysis, such as monthly country reports, five-year country economic forecasts, country risk service reports, and industry reports. Trumps anti-Muslim hate speech and his talk of putting troops on the ground in Syria to fight the Islamic State, coupled with his ban on all Muslim travel to the US would result in an increase of jihadist groups. “The spread of IS [Isis] and its influence poses a dilemma for global policymakers, who are under pressure to intervene militarily to suppress the group in its strongholds in the Middle East [especially now that hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees are seeking sanctuary in Europe], but which in turn would risk reprisals in their home countries by radicalized IS sympathizers.”7 The instability of Greece and the spread of IS may result in more countries leaving the European Union. The spread of Isis would create ripples all over the world and it seems like Trump has some stock in weaponry. Trumps trade policies also have the potential to escalate into a trade war with China.

“A hard landing for the Chinese economy remains the biggest threat to the world economy, according to the EIU. It said China’s manufacturing and service sectors were continuing to deteriorate, hampering the government’s efforts to tackle bad debts that had built up since the financial crisis. Recent plunges on the Shanghai stock market – down 17% so far this year – have undermined confidence in Beijing’s ability to manage the crisis.”

What we need to do!
With the information presented its obvious that something drastic need to be done in
order to keep Trump out of office, but its definitely bigger than Trump. Trump is just a part of a system that allows him and others like him to do what they want to do. The capitalist system is not for the people, it’s for the dollar. Knowing this, we all need to unite as one to combat the system and its various tentacles. The system is for the dollar but we’re for the people, hence the #HUMANECAMPAIGN. The #HUMANECAMPAIGN is for anyone that wants to promote life and have a safer future for our offspring. Whatever your motivation is there a place for you to express that, from police brutality to the school to prison pipeline. These examples are just a few of the issues that affect us nationally as well as globally, change and accountability is needed in order to secure our future.
