"Symbols should reflect who we really are as a people.”He went on to say “Even though Robert E. Lee reflects a part of our history, he does not reflect what the city is or who the city wants to be”, Mayor Landrieu said.

TanyaFree.com/Urban Views Weekly Poll

When was the last time you had a pay increase? Chances are your employer won’t give you one if you don’t ask. Believe it or not, nearly 90% of Americans think they are entitled to one but only 54% are courageous enough to ask for one according to a survey. The survey also suggested that fear of rejection leaves many intimidated to ask for a pay bump and others fear the possible backlash of asking for a raise, including punitive measures by the boss.      

 
How about you? Do you think you are entitled to a raise? If so, are you courageous enough to ask for it?

Efforts to enact tougher gun control measures have consistently failed in recent years and recent polls have revealed that only half of Americans favor stricter gun laws.

We Celebrate Juneteenth

 Many Americans celebrate July 4 as the nation’s Independence Day, but for many African Americans, Juneteenth is the holiday that celebrates freedom and emancipation from slavery.  President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation on September 22, 1862, with an effective date of January 1, 1863, however the official end of the Civil War was not until April 1865.  In light of the slow methods of communication and minimal number of Union troops to enforce Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation, Texas slaves continued to live in bondage until June 18, 1865. 40 states and the District of Columbia have passed legislation to officially recognize Juneteenth. Today, many continue to work to pass legislation in Congress to establish Juneteenth Independence Day as a National Day of Observance.

 

Tanya Free and Friends celebrate our Juneteenth Independence Day.

Is It OK To Be Transracial?

African Americans passing for White have long been documented in our community, but how about Whites passing as Black?

Self described as partly African American, her birth certificate reportedly reveals that she was born to two Caucasian parents.


What’s Your Take? Do you have a problem with passing and is it OK to be “transracial?

Freedom of Speech?

Hundreds of Anti-Islam protesters rallied outside of an Arizona mosque as part of a “Freedom of Speech” rally last week. The organizer, wearing a t-shirt saying f--- Islam, encouraged protesters to bring guns just in case their first amendment rights were to come under attack. Some of the counter protesters wore shirts that said, "Love Thy Neighbor." Worshipers were warned to stay away from the mosque over fears the event could turn violent. Muslim leaders made it known that they are aware of their Religious Freedom and will not be intimidated.

What’s your take? How do you feel about freedom of speech being used to justify the restriction of religious freedoms?
