Unity in our Community

As many of you may have noticed... there's a very negative racial climate in our country.  and I know each and every one of us have their ways of dealing with this.  Just remember try to stay cool, calm, and collected. and let us not be apart or join the back and forth.

We still don't know the full outcome or this racial tension.  What I have noticed... is that young people are joining the fight... creating a whole new generations of that dislikes or hate in each other because of the color of their skin, their choice of religion or sexual preferences.

What American adults instead should do is become a positive role model for the new generation.

Like our Supreme Grand Master Teacher have said
"No one wins the race in racism"

Blackface Video Has Elite New York Private School in an Uproar

Two white girls in blackface grunted and swung their arms like apes. They jumped up and down to music playing in the background, moving in front of a camera, sneering as a third girl recorded them.

The six-second video snippet was recorded about two and half years ago, but it resurfaced this month, thrusting Poly Prep Country Day School in Brooklyn, one of New York City’s elite private schools, into the national conversation about racism.

On Friday, hundreds of Poly Prep students, dressed in black, walked out of an assembly, filtered into the hallways and staged an hour-and-a-half sit-in, which was first reported by the Polygon, the student newspaper.

That same day, on the eve of the holiday weekend honoring the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the video of the Poly Prep students was lumped on social media into a montage of other racist imagery from that day that swept across social media: white male students wearing “Make America Great Again” hats who had surrounded and mocked a Native American veteran of the Vietnam War outside the Lincoln Memorial, a viral video from the University of Oklahoma of a female student with her face painted black and using what sounded like a racial slur.

Teen taunt elder at Indigenous people's march.

For years, Native American advocate Nathan Phillips of metro Detroit has been fighting for the rights of indigenous people.

On Friday, his battle gained national attention, as social media videos captured his standoff with a group of taunting Catholic school students in the nation's capital. The video of Phillips, peacefully drumming and singing, while surrounded by a hostile crowd illustrates the nation's political and racial tensions.
