The Catch 22 of Living Paycheck to Paycheck

By Venchele Saint Dic
Jim is an air traffic controller living in New York. He and his wife have four children. His wife is a stay at home mom raising their four children.  Jim earns $60,000 dollars annually. The extent of his education is a high school equivalency test. He has worked for his agency for 30 years. They own a home and depend on one income to pay the expenses incurred monthly for the household. 

Carla is a single mother of two children. She works as a contractor for a trucking company based in California. Due to the lack of support afforded to her, she rarely dedicates time for self-care because she is working two jobs to pay the mortgage and child care expenses. She has been working with her company for five years. Carla earns an annual salary of $50,000 dollars. 

The assumption here is that both cases rely on one income. Therefore, it is safe to say that without an income stream coming every month, it would be increasingly hard for Jim and Carla to maintain their respective lifestyles in the states they live in. At first glance, they are in two different tax brackets and salary ranges. They live in different states with their own unique topography, economic and social capital. As it is common knowledge, this is a very typical situation wherein the net income you earn determines whether you can afford the commodities and lifestyle in a particular state.

BLACK-OWNED TRAVEL AGENCY, SISTERS AND SUITCASES, PLANNING 2019 JOURNEY TO GHANA FOR WOMEN TRAVELERS
Last year's group as they were just arriving to Accra, Ghana
The trip is in commemoration of the country's "Year of Return"

Little Rock, AR -- A Black-owned travel agency called Sisters and Suitcases has announced that it is offering a once in a life-time opportunity for female travelers to experience the "Year of Return" in Ghana. The trip will commemorate the 400th year anniversary of the first enslaved Africans arrival to English Colonial America from Ghana in 1619. The trip will be led by the company owner, Tamaya Walker McClendon, August 9-15, 2019 or August 22-28, 2019.

"The Year of Return is the commemoration of the diaspora's return to the continent and the opportunity for women of all backgrounds to experience Accra and how Pan-Africanism is a true part of Ghanaian culture," Walker McClendon said. "People have come to have a negative connotation of Africa. I want to unlock this hidden gem and allow women to experience Ghana and have a taste of Africa they have never seen before -- breathtaking views, loving people, delicious cuisine, cool places filled with lots culture, music and so much more."

Ladies embarking on this journey will immerse themselves in Ghanaian culture by exploring Jamestown and High Street through the beginning of Accra, visit design houses, take part in part in cooking lessons and Batik making as well as enjoy high life music and special events such as the Chale Wote Festival. They will also get the chance to participate in a naming ceremony, explore the heart of the ancient pre-colonial Ashanti Kingdom in Kumasi and hike through Kakum National Park. The highlight of this adventure will be a visit to Elmina and Cape Coast Slave Dungeons-two important reminders of the Transatlantic Slave Trade and the Door of No Return.

The cost of the trip starts at $2,897.00 for double occupancy.

SEE HUMAN ZOOS: THE SHOCKING DOCUMENTARY EXPOSING AMERICA'S HIDDEN HISTORY OF SCIENTIFIC RACISM PREMIERING FREE ON YOUTUBE
 Ota Benga

Washington, DC -- It's a sordid chapter in American history that many scientists would rather not talk about. Thousands of indigenous people from Africa and elsewhere were put on public display in twentieth century America, often touted by scientists as "missing links" between humans and apes.  To see the full movie: click here

Perhaps the most shocking display of all was the exhibition of African man Ota Benga in a cage in the Monkey House at the Bronx Zoo in New York City.  The scandalous story is exposed in Human Zoos, an award-winning documentary from Discovery Institute being given its YouTube premiere this week as part of African-American History month.

Human Zoos also explores the history of eugenics, the crusade by scientists and doctors to breed a "better" human race by applying the principles of Darwinian evolution.  Film director John West says he hopes his film will help Americans avoid the mistakes of the past. "

CONCERNED MOM WANTS HER SONS AND OTHERS TO COME HOME ALIVE!
Sanya Gragg and her bookcover

Their Dad references a catchy chant taught to him by his mother to help remember the five things to do to "come home ALIVE". A to the L to the I-V-E! Come home ALIVE... That is the key!

WHEN A SCHOLAR PUTS HIS ENGLISH LIT DEGREE TO USE, THE RESULT IS... "ALL OVER THE PLACE"
Author Robertson Greene and his bookcover
Oakland, CA -- Nearly two decades after completing undergraduate studies in English Literature and Theater, Robertson Greene releases his debut title, All Over the Place. Like so many students with an intense passion for the literary arts, Robertson, a gifted poet, reached a fork in the road and opted for an unrelated field. His life choice led him to pursue technical writing as a career and his words have anonymously become content that has been seen by millions.

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost has meant much to many English majors in the United States. Many whose passion for literature had stirred them to earn a college degree in this area have found themselves torn between aspirations of being the next great novelist or poet emeritus, and the security of a paycheck.

The dilemma becomes even more compelling when one's aptitude and affinity for prose and verse show great promise, but not enough to overcome preconceived notions and the assumption that the career writer will be relegated to the starving artist.

Marietta, GA -- As we celebrate Black History Month, inventor of the PuffCuff® Hair Clamp and the first black woman to hold two natural hair accessory patents, Ceata Lash, stands out as a living legend who is blazing a new path in the hair industry. Her rise to success is chronicled in her newly released mini-documentary, which is accessible at www.ThePuffCuff.com. This documentary offers viewers a raw, honest story of how Ceata Lash turned her idea born out of personal frustration into a global empire for textured and curly hair accessories.

About 12 years ago Ceata decided to stop chemically straightening her hair. "I actually had no idea what the hair growing out of my scalp would look like, so I didn't know how to take care of it... Ever since the days of Madam CJ Walker, all we've ever known was straight hair," Ceata states in the opening of the mini-documentary.

After much research on natural hair styling, she found that most of the current hair accessories were designed with a bias towards straight hair. Ceata felt it wasn't fair and realized she was facing a problem bigger than just her.

FORMER FEDERAL AGENT TO DISCUSS CRIMES, RACISM, AND INJUSTICE IN AMERICA'S LAW ENFORCEMENT

Denver, CO -- While distressed relationships between law enforcement and African Americans are at an all-time high in America, Matthew Horace offers an unforgettable account of the racism, crimes, and color lines that permeate America's law enforcement, and lays out an urgent call for change. He will discuss and sign The Black and the Blue: A Cop Reveals the Crimes, Racism, and Injustice in America's Law Enforcement during his speaker tour at the Blair Caldwell African American Research Library in the historic Five Points community in Denver, CO on Thursday, Feb. 21 at 6 p.m.

Horace was an officer at the federal, state, and local level for 28 years working in every state in the country. Yet it was after seven years of service when Horace found himself face-down on the ground with a gun pointed at his head by a white fellow officer, that he fully understood the racism seething within America's police departments.

Using gut-wrenching reportage, on-the-ground research, and personal accounts garnered by interviews with police and government officials around the country, Horace presents an insider's examination of police tactics and dissects some of the nation's most highly publicized police shootings and communities highlighted in the Black Lives Matter movement and beyond.

Based on 2015 publishing statistics compiled by the Cooperative Children's Book Center at the School of Education, the University of Wisconsin-Madison on the percentage of books depicting characters from diverse backgrounds.

These statistics are validated with a quick search for children's cartoons available on popular platforms such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Video and YouTube will quickly reveal only a handful of cartoons with at least 1 character of color.  A.D. Largie says that "at the root of racial intolerance and unconscious bias is a lack of diversity in kids content manifesting in adults."
