See Why NYS Senator James Sanders Condemns President Trump's Rescinding Of The Community Reinvestment Act

-------
From The Office Of State Senator James Sanders



State Senator James Sanders Jr. today condemned President Trump’s proposal to revamp or rescind the Community Reinvestment Act, something that would be detrimental to low-income and working class families.  The CRA is legislation, which states that banks should lend a certain amount of money to people who live in the neighborhoods where the banks are located.

Prior to this legislation, redlining was a common practice. Banks literally drew a red line around neighborhoods that they did not want to lend to – minority and so-called “high risk” neighborhoods – places where people had the most need.

“I would suggest that those in need of a loan get one right away, before the protective regulations of the CRA all come crashing down,” Sanders said. “Banking systems are necessary, but we must examine how much is profit and how much is greed.”

 Seattle, WA -- The authors of I am So Sick of White Guys do not hate white guys. In fact, Jim Corbett and Tim Jones ARE white guys. But when news of the political satire coloring book hit the wires, the far right hit the ceiling. (www.sickofwhiteguys.com)


The book was intended as a 'stress-reliever' that would provide a few laughs for liberals and progressives and people from any political alignment who are concerned about the direction in which the current administration is moving the country (e.g., 90+% of appointees for posts and judgeships are white males).

Co-author, Jim Corbett said, "In a way, the coloring book expresses the exact same sentiments highlighted by Oprah Winfrey in her passionate Golden Globe speech – 'Their time is up!'  "Is it all white guys who are the problem?"

Rep. Meeks Condemns Trump’s
Offensive "Sh*thole" Comment



"I am bitterly ashamed by our President’s abhorrent, bigoted, heaving ignorant comments about Africa, El Salvador, and Haiti without any regard for history or fact..."

Washington, D.C.—Congressman Meeks released the following statement on President Trump’s question—“Why do we want all these people from sh*thole countries coming here?”—in a bipartisan immigration meeting:

“I am bitterly ashamed by our President’s heaving ignorant comments about Africa, El Salvador, and Haiti without any regard for history or fact. I am not alone; people around the world awoke to another episode of Donald Trump diminishing the United States’ world standing with repulsive and blatantly racist comments. In the days leading up to the eighth anniversary of the earthquake in Haiti, when the President should have offered inspiring messages of rebuilding and Haitian resilience, he showed his true bigotry once again.

See How Marsha Duke Empowers Collective Business Success With The B.E.S.T. Networking Group

Southeast Queens Based Networking Group Looks To
Expand The Net Worth Of Area Entrepreneurs

By Kamau Austin


Marsha Duke, once a 20 year resident of the Rosedale, section of Southeast Queens, New York, does a deep reflection on her mom a pioneering women entrepreneur. She feels her mom's industrious actions coming from Trinidad & Tobago, and establishing a number of beauty salons imbued her with the entrepreneurial desire she has in her soul.

Her mom started off as a nanny, she worked hard putting herself through cosmetology school and became a talented hair stylist, later on owning her own salon - which grew to a few. Ms. Duke shares “I know that seeing her work hard, manage her own time and building a business subconsciously penetrated my brain as a child, it left an impression on me that I was not aware of until my own desire to do the same manifested itself in me.”

Marsha goes on to embellish her inner reflection “That burning desire to work hard for myself, manage my own time and be my own boss has been within me for years now.” Very similar to her mom, Duke worked herself upward in life. She moved forward as a paralegal who worked on the legal matters for real estate deals, to handling her own home buying process, and to now making a living as a real estate salesperson. Marsha Duke states “she just loves the process” when it comes to acquiring real estate.

Queens NY Based Rapper Araaz Gets The
Streets Lit With Inner Reflection

By Kamau Austin


A rap prodigy and product who hails from the three original epicenters of hip hop The Bronx, Brooklyn, and Queens, Araaz, is a complex rapper. He was introduced to his musical passion rap listening to his older sister and a friend when he was twelve years old. Araaz, who today still views her as a role model, was too shy then to join in with his sister and friends.

By 16 the emerging hip hop star was writing on a daily basis and starting "to develop his own style as an artist" recounts Araaz. Today he has certainly overcome his shyness and is becoming a thought provoking hip hop artist who looks to make people think about their life circumstances.  Araaz reflects more like a philosopher than a poet on his outlook on life...


"...My life is a challenge. The way the world is today and not feeding into negativity is a challenge because it is almost everywhere around us. Music is like medicine it is a way to release myself from the ways of the world."
