Notes and tidbits on FB and Twitter. Part 75

Most of my brain power since I was born in West Baltimore (or Chicago west end) was directed to preserve my black body from being destroyed, annihilated, broken down… by police force, gang members, drug addicts.. in a fraction of a second.
Le dispositive idéologique et culturel de USA  est de faire croire qu’ils sont l’oeuvre de Dieu. Tous ces Noirs qui circulent encore prouvent que c’est la creation de l’homme.
Dans ce pays construit sur le racism, j’ai rejetté toute form de pensée magique et douté de la gloire predestine’ de USA. Non mon fils, ne prend pas pour acquis son innocence du mal fait partout.
Comment vivre avec un corps noir dans un pays perdu dans ses Rêves? Rêve de cabane dans les arbres, barbecue du Memorial Day, allées privées…
On rigolait de ceux qu’on craignaient leur fouet le plus: ceux qui nous aimaient le plus et avaient toujours peur, pour nous sauver de la destruction de nos corps noirs.
Black people in the USA live in constant fear since childhood, everyone of them, learning that their black body is meant to be destroyed by the white laws and the scared gang members on drugs.
Beware of these pronouncements such as Eleanor Roosevelt’s: “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” She was a white privileged person who blew much fumes on individual responsibility while the system was built to destroy every black or colored person.
La disculpation á grande échelle: les erreurs criminelles en chaines sont le résultat du manque de responsabilité individuel, bien que les intentions etaient peut-etre bonnes
Chaque fois qu’on se pose une question, elle devient plus clair: ce sont les comments qui génerent et clarifient les pourquoi.
La conscience politique est un questionnement permanent du comment qui aboutit á répondre au pourquoi des situations et conditions.
In the early 1990, the rap singers borrowed heavily on Malcolm X speeches and recording. “N’abandonne pas ta vie, preserve-lá. Si tu es forcé á l’abandonné, donner le change” par la facon qu’ils usent. “Le bulletin de vote ou le fusil”.
Black is Beautiful was meant to deter blacks from emulating the beauty stereotype of the white monopoly. No whitening of your skin, no surgeries for your mouth, lips and nose, keep your hair Afro…
Le system en Amerique est parvenu á fourvoyer les noirs de leur résistance originelle des 60’s dans des chemins obscures, dead ends. Plus de Nat Turner, Harriet Tubman, Nanny, Cudjoe ou Malcolm X. Les Black Flights des classes moyennes ont abandonnés les rues aux gangs and aux drug dealers.
Lebanese Expatriate Contractor Class ( arriving from the Gulf, Saudi Kingdom and Africa) are managing our contracted national debt that keeps increasing every years by leaps and bounds

Justice only means that someone will have to pay for the crime. Not necessarily the criminal.

Hundreds dead beneath the rubble in Mosul: A very few are rising from the dead. Over 50,000 civilians dead and 12,000 from the Iraqi fighters of Hashd sha3bi

Mind you that any new pedagogical method attracts only the highly motivated teachers: Not every teacher can be passionately above average

Blacks and Latinos, these minorities soon to become majority, do Not enjoy same job and financial opportunities wherever they decide to settle down in different cities. their dynamic mobility rate is low and remain in their respective ghettos

In 1973, Fidel Castro said: USA will talk to us when it has a Black president and a Pope from Latin America. The two combination opened the door

Using several accounts under various pseudonyms and feeling free to express everything that comes to mind is virtual reality. It is these virtual communications in social media that excite the prospective potential racists and extremist jihadists to bloom and expand

If you are Not angry, how do you live?

If Islam is to be held accountable for gangs of Muslim criminals Not elected as their representative, why should Western liberal democracies Not hold accountable for mass murderers like Tony Blair and George W Bush?

If you don’t have the courage to express your anger, raw and confusing, why anyone should read you?

So busy doing my job, I can’t get any work done. Just keep running away from home.

Stimulating choices among opportunities is different from stimulating desires. Choices is a stabilizing factor in a society. While stimulating desires can have a counter productive effects that bring chaos

What you do? I read, take notes and write. Why you do that? I know I’m No Coward

Every one, who considers himself a minority in a State, trying to comprehend the confusion in his emotions through investigating his ethnicity, is worth reading.



Why women are not in any dollar bill?

Why scientific achievements do not replace male figures on dollar bills?

Thinking forward: 2020 will mark the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote.

Andrew Jackson’s portrait has held its place on the $20 bill since Jackson replaced Grover Cleveland in 1928.

For the organizers of Women on $20s, that’s quite long enough. “A woman’s place is on the money,” the Women on $20s campaign says. The new group has come up with a list of 15 women it would like to see on the $20 bill instead, including Rosa Parks, Eleanor Roosevelt and Harriet Tubman.

This group wants to banish Andrew Jackson from the $20 bill

Campaign organizers are targeting the 20 because 2020 will mark the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote.

But there’s another reason: Jackson’s authorization and enforcement of the Indian Removal Act of 1830 — which forced several Native American tribes to give up their land to white farmers and move to Oklahoma — makes his continued presence on American currency controversial.

Slate pitched the idea of doing away with the seventh U.S. president’s face on the $20 bill last year, writing: “Andrew Jackson engineered a genocide. He shouldn’t be on our currency.”

Jackson, Women on $20s executive director Susan Ades Stone said in a phone interview, also hated paper currency anyway – much favoring gold and silver. “The guy would be rolling in his grave to know that every day the ATM spits out bills with his face on it,” he added.

The Women on $20s campaign aims to “literally raise the profile of a woman in a male-dominated field,” the nonprofit’s founder Barbara Ortiz Howard wrote on the site.

Right now, the only woman on a currently circulating piece of U.S. currency is Sacagawea, on the dollar coin.

The U.S. Mint lists two other coins depicting women: Helen Keller is on the reverse side of the 2003 Alabama quarter, and Susan B. Anthony was on the dollar coin until 1981.

(That’s a great start)

Organizers are asking visitors to vote for one of 15 women they’ve selected as possible candidates to replace Jackson in a survey that is also doubling as a petition. The group hopes to collect enough signatures – about 100,000 – to justify sending a petition to the White House on the issue, asking the president to recommend the change to the Treasury. Stone said that the group collected about 8,000 votes in the past 60 hours.

“The goal is to get it done, but it’s not only about that. It’s about raising awareness and making sure people get to know these women,” Stone added. The group envisions the campaign lasting through March, which is Women’s History Month.

But, Stone added, “If President Obama says tomorrow that he wants to do this, we’re not gonna say no.”

Although the new campaign still seems a longshot, a similar petition also prompted Britain to announce in 2013 that it would put Jane Austen on the 10-pound note.

As Buzzfeed’s write-up notes, Obama has generally supported the idea of putting a woman on currency. “Last week, a young girl wrote to ask me why aren’t there any women on our currency,” the president said in a July speech in Kansas City.

“And then she gave me like a long list of possible women to put on our dollar bills and quarters and stuff — which I thought was a pretty good idea.”

The organization whittled down a list of finalists based on two main criteria – the individual’s impact on society, and the difficulty they faced in doing so, Stone said.

Here are the 15 choices of Women on $20s, which Stone hopes will, as a group, “tell a great American story of women not only helping other women but helping to improve the lives of all Americans despite facing enormous obstacles along the way:”

  • Clara Barton‎, the founder of the American Red Cross
  • Margaret Sanger‎, who opened the first birth control clinic in the US.
  • Rachel Carson‎, a marine biologist who wrote the hugely influential environmental book Silent Spring
  • Rosa Parks‎, the iconic civil rights activist
  • Harriet Tubman‎, the abolitionist activist famed for her journeys on the underground railroad
  • Barbara Jordan‎, a politician who was the first black woman in the south to be elected to the House of Representatives
  • Betty Friedan‎, feminist author of the Feminine Mystique 
  • Frances Perkins‎, the Secretary of Labor under FDR, who was the first woman appointed to the U.S. Cabinet
  • Susan B. Anthony‎, women’s suffrage movement leader
  • Shirley Chisholm‎, the first African-American woman elected to Congress
  • Elizabeth Cady Stanton‎, early women’s rights activist and abolitionist
  • Eleanor Roosevelt‎, human rights activist and former first Lady
  • Sojourner Truth‎, African American women’s rights activist and abolitionist
  • Alice Paul‎, women’s suffrage movement leader

At least one of those choices is already rather controversial, as noted by Breitbart, whose headline about the campaign reads:


Note: Every US President tried to chase out the native Indians. Jackson was better than many President in his achievement and standing out against the Rothschild financial enslavement of the US treasury and printing of the dollar.
