THIS IS WHY AMERICA NEEDS A GEORGE FLOYD TRUTH AND RECONCILIATION COMMISSION
George Floyd Picture Right and I Can't Breathe Sign Source Wikipedia

By Op-ed Contributor Tolson Banner


George Floyd was murdered at the hands of the police.  Floyd’s murder flips the switch on the floodlights that now illuminate all of the other murders of unarmed black people at the hands of the police who have sworn to protect and serve.

It is the police who represent  one of the first lines of government  that blacks encounter and that encounter have been brutal and deadly.  What we witness over and over again is police carrying out  policies and laws instituted by politicians on the local, state and federal levels allowing police to operate with impunity.
  
What the murder of George Floyd has done was to put America on notice about her historical treatment of blacks since the beginning of the Atlantic enslavement trade.  For those who think blacks are only seeking justice for George Floyd miss the entire picture.  America via slave trackers, vigilante groups, KKK, Jim Crow, segregation, lynchings, housing discrimination, redlining and gentrification keeps the historical knee on the neck of all black people.

ENTREPRENEURS LAUNCH ONLINE PLATFORM TO HELP AFRICAN AMERICANS GET STARTED IN REAL ESTATE INVESTING

Houston, TX  Real estate entrepreneurs Lena Claybon and Kayela Ceron are looking to create a path to financial independence for more African Americans via their new website, RockTheRealEstate.com, which helps new investors get started in real estate investing.

"Rock The Real Estate was born out of our frustration with seeing so many people in our community suffering financially and not feeling they have any options other than a 9-5 job," says Co-Founder and CEO, Lena Claybon. "Right now, with so many unemployed because of COVID19, that leaves them feeling they have NO options." Claybon goes on to say, "What we hope to do with this platform is give people options."

Claybon, who is a house flipper, wholesaler and landlord, is optimistic about the venture but remains grounded in reality. "Real estate investing isn't for everyone. It takes dedication and a willingness to learn and put in the work. Also, we're not telling people not to go back to work or to quit their jobs and do real estate fulltime. There are some who just want to supplement their income and there are others who want to eventually replace their income so that they have the choice to work or not. Whatever your interest for wanting to learn the business, we want to be a catalyst for making it happen."

SOUL SINGER RANDY HALL IS ON A HOT STREAK WITH NEW SOLO SINGLE "A NEW WAY OF LOVE" FOLLOWING VAULT HIT WITH LATE JAZZ LEGEND MILES DAVIS

Las Vegas, NV  After years spent in lucrative retreat from the spotlight, multi-faceted musician/singer Randy Hall is in the midst of a hot streak as a recording artist as hot as his home base: Las Vegas!

Randy Hall has enjoyed international chart-topping success with his solo single "How Do You Want Your Love" (co-composed with Kevin Toney, founding keyboardist of Donald Byrd's Blackbyrds band) which vaulted over superstars such as Charlie Wilson and Usher to hit the top of the U.K. Soul Chart and several others from Brazil to Germany. Next, Hall had the honor of hitting the top of those same charts with a song he originally wrote in the '80s for Al Jarreau to sing as a guest of Miles Davis on an album that was ultimately shelved for decades. That swingin' song, "I Love What We Make Together" (from 2019's jazz chart-topping posthumously released Miles album, Rubberband) also shot up the world charts.

FINANCIAL EXPERT WHO QUANTIFIED THE COST OF ANTI-BLACK DISCRIMINATION IN AMERICA RELEASES A PARADIGM SHIFTING NEW BOOK TO HELP CHANGE HOW YOU THINK ABOUT YOUR PERSONAL FINANCES

Southbury, CT  Shawn Rochester is an author, entrepreneur, investor and sought-after speaker who has spoken on Wall Street, in Silicon Valley, the United Nations and lectured at leading universities about the staggering financial cost of discrimination against Black people in America and advocates for a new economic framework to help create the millions of jobs and businesses that are missing in the black community.

In his highly acclaimed book, The Black Tax: The Cost of Being Black in America, Mr Rochester shows how The Black Tax (which is the financial cost of conscious and unconscious anti-black discrimination), creates a massive financial burden on Black American households that dramatically reduces their ability to leave a substantial legacy for future generations.
