The President Awards the Medal of Honor Posthumously to two World War I Veterans

Leave a comment

Hello Everyone:

Declaring it’s never too late to make things right, President Barack Obama posthumously bestowed the Medal of Honor on two World War I veterans whose heroic acts nearly 100 years ago went unrecognized in an age of discrimination.
In a tearful, joyful East Room ceremony recalling the battlefield triumphs as well as the prejudices of 20th century America, Sgt. William Shemin and Pvt. Henry Johnson were recognized with the nation’s highest military decoration for saving their comrades on French front lines. Shemin was Jewish and Johnson was black.

My friend, Annie liked and was really good about debunking untruths during the 2012presidential campaign.  I on the other hand liked promoting the good news about President Obama.

Each of us has a role to play to elect Hillary Clinton. She has a bunch of mean candidates, many clowns and numerous detractors and out right negative hateful people who want their person in the White House to take everyone back in time.
FYI:  If you come across an article, etc you want to send out to your associates as an untruth to debunk or even good news; please verify your information at least one or two times with other sources like a different news article, a radio or news announcement.  If you don’t know the author; check out their background on Google. If using the large portions or the entire article–credit the author and or news, magazine, etc.before releasing.

The short video clip below debunks the most recent untruths about Hillary and please note I’m not suggesting that Hillary has no shortcoming; however, compared to all the other yahoos (boorish); Hillary is the most qualified and has your and the country’s best interest in her heart and mind.

It was Marian Anderson who broke the racial barrier in opera, and it was through opera that the last three decades of Black American singers made their way. From the first great standard-bearer of that group, Leontyne Price, down to the present generation represented by Kathleen Battle and Jessye Norman, almost all of these singers have made spirituals a central element of their recitals

President Obama Took No Prisoners–What a Week

Leave a comment

WOW!!
– 
– 
What an emotionally filled past few days–starting with Congress granting President Barack Obama “fast-track” authority needed to move ahead on the Asian trade agenda on Wednesday, June 24th with one more part to be approved.
Yesterday, Thursday, June 25th the Supreme Court ruled to uphold theAffordable Care Act (ACA).  Today Friday, June 26th the Supreme Court  legalized same sex marriage in all 50 states.
Later today in South Carolina; President Obama’s eulogy for Rev. Clementa Pinckney was not only rousing and truth filled; but perhaps his best speech to date. The president ended the eulogy by leading everyone in Amazing Grace.  He took no prisoners.

Obama’s glad he used the N-word

Obama’s glad he used the N-word

 –
Politico.com
By Edward-Isaac Dovere 

President Barack Obama’s glad he said what he said.

And he believes America proved his point on Monday: Even in the wake of an amateur white supremacist shooting nine African-Americans to death in a historically black church in the hopes of inciting a race war, we still struggle to have a genuine discussion about race in this country.

Aides said that walking into Marc Maron’s garage to tape a podcast on Friday, Obama knew he’d probably get asked about race, and he knew roughly what he wanted to say. When the taping ended, he could guess that most people would focus on the president of the United States, the nation’s black president, using the most racially charged word in the English language.

When the interview went live Monday morning, the news went everywhere: Obama said “nigger.”

President Obama will travel to Charleston to eulogize Rev. Clementa Pinckney, pastor o fEmanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, whom the president considered a friend and who was a well-known leader in South Carolina, where he also served as a state senator.

Howard Schultz, still keen to talk about race, visits Starbucks Charleston staff & supports the victims families

Leave a comment

Hello Everyone:
A sign of true leadership is that leaders take action and that’s exactly what Howard Schultz, CEO of Starbucks did several months ago in which he had to abandon theRace Together talks a week later mainly because people couldn’t wrap their head around it at 8:00am as they ordered their coffee on the way to work.
The concept was courageous (see Paulo Coelho on NCM Blog post below) – only the format and time of day, etc. were problematic for people.  There should be no surprise that Howard Schultz is one of my favorite CEO’s and Starbucks is one of my favorite companies.
Along with former attorney general Eric Holder’s  “Nation of Cowards” speech back in 2009–Americans buried their heads in the sand especially the sad body of people called the U.S. Congress. (see NCM Blog  post below)
 –
As President Obama stated in his remarks on South Carolina last week–at some point the American people are going to have to reckon with the truth.   (see NCM Blog  post below)

the conversation left off in March 2015

Three months ago, Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz was widely ridiculed for his idea to get people talking, over Starbucks coffee, about race relations in America. Though he quickly backtracked on a piece of the plan that would have had employees directly engaging customers in discussions about race, he isn’t abandoning the issue.

On Thursday, June 18, Schultz sent a memo to Starbucks employees in the US about the mass shooting that occurred the evening before in a historic black church in Charleston, South Carolina. The memo began:

“My heart is heavy for Charleston today and the senseless hate crime that has impacted not only that community, but our Starbucks family and our nation as a whole. Emanuel AME Church is a historic place of worship which has played a strong role in the civil rights movement. And, in times like these, we search for answers for how such a horrific act could happen. Now more than ever, I feel the need to reach out to each of you and express my concern, my disbelief and my hope that we can be there for the community and with one another to unite and to heal.”

 –

Schultz was in Charleston, visiting two Starbucks coffee shops not far from the church and one on the campus of the College of Charleston.

A Starbucks spokeswoman says Schultz met with about 75 employees during his visit, and says the company is “working to see what support we can provide to the local community.”  

At least some of the responses to Schultz’s efforts to confront the topic of race relations seem a little more receptive this time around.

Starbucks Howard Schultz Visits Partners in Charleston; Pledges Support for Victims’ Families

In addition to meeting with partners in three stores and listening to their stories during a partner forum, Schultz pledged that the Starbucks Foundation will donate $100,000 to two funds in the community. A $50,000 contribution will be made to the “Mother Emanuel Hope Fund,” established by the City of Charleston to help family members of the shooting victims pay for funerals, counseling and other needs. The other $50,000 will be directed to Lowcountry Ministries – Reverend Pinckney Fund to be used to support vulnerable populations and youth projects that Reverend Clementa Pinckney was passionate about.
