Duante Wright Sr. shooting could have been avoided
The senseless death of 20 year old Duante Wright Sr. is yet another tragedy that could have been prevented. After all the other shootings in recent years that have brought us to this point and all the discussions, here we are again. The image of this handsome young man with his son Duante Jr. is heartbreaking to look at. Here is a child in his father's arms. A little boy named for his dad and who is clearly loved and cherished. Now he will grow up as a statistic of being another little boy without his father in his life.
Daunte Wright: The Loss Of Another Black Man
For those of you who have not seen the news Daunte Wright was a 20 year old man that was pulled over in suburban Minneapolis on a "routine" traffic stop which resulted in his death via the police officer that stopped him. It is still early in the investigation and they are still pulling evidence and collecting the facts but the chief of police released a statement stating that the officer meant to fire her taser and not her gun.
In Immigrant's Journey Through the Pandemic
A lot of people recently have been incredibly surprised to learn that my lockdown-related stress has had to do with my visa situation, and indeed have been incredibly surprised to learn that my residential safety in the UK was not instantly sorted the moment I married my husband Stephen. The fact is that the visa conditions for non-EU residents have been terrible since Theresa May established the current requirements in July 2012, often described as gargantuan and found to break human rights by the UN a few years ago, their defining quality being that they were intended to create a hostile environment for anyone looking to immigrate into the UK. All of this has been properly reported as such, and I think a lot more people in the UK are blissfully ignorant of said actions delivered by their own government to immigrants (whilst others openly celebrate them and fully included them in their reason to vote Brexit, but more on that later).
France Enter Yet another lockdown
Referring to Macron's pledge in his Wednesday statement that France might begin reopening in mid-May, Girard stated, 'I'm skeptical approximately a mild on the cease of the tunnel. They've been making guarantees for the beyond yr that have not been kept. I do not trust it, I do not trust it anymore. I do not know if we will get returned our vintage existence.'About a year ago, confronted with the primary national lockdown against a raging coronavirus epidemic, Parisians desperately jammed into trains in an exodus that became Montparnasse into an area of worry and anxiety, and the capital right into a ghost town.
Muhammad Ali Jinnah, an Epitome of Excellence!
"Although without Gandhi, Hindustan would still have gained Independence, and without Lenin and Mao, Russia and China, would still have endured Commu nist revolution. Without Jinnah, there would have been no Pakistan in 1947." -John Biggs-Davison
The Struggle of Aboriginal Women In Australia
Aboriginal women have faced tremendous difficulties since the British occupation of Australia in 1778. After this occupation, their relationship among themselves and with indigenous men changed significantly. They lost their independence, status, and value within the community. Their psychological state suffered dramatically due to their rights taken away.
Understanding The Struggles Of Black America
Black America is going through it right now. Although our ancestors have endured the horrible effects of slavery, Jim Crow, and reconstruction, today's African American population is encountering a combination of old-school oppression tactics and new-age designs to further manipulate black citizens' dangerous situation in the United States.
Vaccine related issues.
Vaccination remains an important tool to help prevent further illness and death and to control pandemics. So far, more than 20 million doses of AstraZeneca vaccine have been administered in Europe and more than 27 million doses of Covishield vaccine (AstraZeneca vaccine by the Serum Institute of India) have been administered in India.
I Remember My First Mass Shooting Like it was Yesterday
An ex-employee hid inside the bathroom of a local pizza chain and murdered four people after closing time. Three of them were teenagers. He shot another man as well, the bullet striking his jaw, sparing his life and labeling him “lucky” – an adjective forever accompanied by quotation marks.
This country asks for justice.
The right to the health was articulated by WHO in the Alma Declaration in 1978. The constitutional debate in Chile is an opportunity to reexamine this concept.
Bet you Didn't Know
Bet you didn't know. Bet you didn’t know that redlining is an illegal discriminatory practice in which a mortgage lender denies loans or an insurance provider restricts services to certain areas of a community, often because of the racial characteristics of the applicant's neighborhood.
There are no fair drugs
T. wants to quit smoking. Not because she is so shocked by the new pictures on the cigarette packets or because she once saw one of these encrusted smoking lungs. She is not pregnant either. “It is simply inconsistent when you live as we do,” she thinks. By that, she means: Eating organic, changing clothes, instead of buying and generally finding exploitation stupid. Hedonism in the form of drugs and tobacco no longer fits in with her political attitude. Smoking promotes exploitation and child labor, coke and other drugs strengthen cartels, prostitution, and life-threatening smuggling. We have known this not only since Netflix and “Narcos”.
