What This All Means To Me

Equality For All

Equality For All

As someone who has personally experienced, and who continues to experience racial discrimination at the hands of unsupervised racist who have been given too much power to discriminate at will, in the allocation of resources, services and funds to the disabled citizens of Maryland, namely DORS, (Division of Rehabilitative Services), and their contracted cohorts, RISE, (Reach Independence Through Self Employment), the inauguration of Barack Hussein, (yes that’s right Hussein), Obama gives me hope that after 6 years of fighting with these agencies, and filing complaint after complaint, with federal, state, and local officials to no avail, (including the Justice Department in Washington DC), that we will finally have someone in the Whitehouse who will see to it that when guidelines are set and met, rules and regulations are followed to the letter, and that the client, (that is me and other people of color), who have complied with all of this will not have to suffer endlessly because these racist are allowed to lie, cheat, and change the rules at their whim in order to keep African American Clients from receiving the technical, moral, and financial support that they have qualified for, and that there will not be separate qualifications for one segment of society, and another set for others.

 

In spite of the fact that I have been fighting to obtain funds for my business since 2003, after successfully passing the tests, completing the classes, and following the guidelines set forth by these people, (which they change at will), no one with whom I have filed a complaint with has recognized the fact that it is very strange that none of the African Americans that I attended class with were approved for funding after completing the requirements, and that 2 white clients had meetings set up for them by the instructor of the class with bank officers for funding, weeks before the class had even ended. 

 

I am not the only victim of this kind of obvious discrimination.

 

There are many people of African American Decent, who have, and continue to experience these kinds of double standards while pursuing services that are supposed to be available to all citizens who meet the requirements for these and other  types of programs, which in theory are designed to serve the people whom they are supposed to represent.

 

It is my hope that this president will make justice and equality for all Americans more then just a warm and fuzzy notion that has no practical application to the millions of people (such as myself), who have been denied access to these resources and services by unsupervised racist who are protected by more unsupervised racist, in order to keep certain segments of society from being treated fairly, simply because they can, because it is allowed.

 

There is no logical explanation for the fact that since 2003, none of the representatives of DORS, or the RISE Program, or for that matter, CAP, (The Client Assistant Program), which is the program that is supposed to be responsible for resolving problem cases such as this, have not been effective in doing so.

 

At the very least, they should have been able to determine if they could help me or not; but this has not been accomplished by them, by the many politicians, bureaucrats and department heads who have repeatedly received my reports on this issue.

 

These kinds of smoke screens have existed for years. Even going as far as denying people who have fought and or died for this country the benefits that they have rightfully earned. And many of these deceitful and hateful acts continues on the watch of many local, state, and federal authorities including , mayors, governors, congressman, senators, and presidents who are supposed to care about the people they represent.

 

It is my hope that with the cooperation of the American People who want a better country, and a better world; The Obama Administration will bring about the positive changes necessary to seek out and remove these types of people from agencies that are charged with allocating resources and services that have long term effects on people’s lives.

The Obama Whistle-stop Tour

January 19, 2009

USA-OBAMA/

Thanks to President Elect, Barack Hussein Obama II, for taking the time to retrace the route of Abraham Lincoln’s Historical Whistle-stop Tour, on his way to Washington DC, where he will be sworn in this Tuesday, January 20th. 2009,as the nation’s 44th.President, (and the first African American President), in this nation’s history.

 

 

From Philadelphia to Washington DC, and all stops in between, thousands of people full of love, hope, and pride lined the route to either hear President Elect Obama speak, or to just catch a glimpse of him, his family, and his Vice President and family, as they slowly rolled by.

 

Thanks to the over 1500 people who showed their love and respect for the new president in Edgewood, MD. I know that it was dangerously cold and uncomfortable, as I was standing with you on this historical occasion.

 

And I am so proud of the people of Baltimore, (my home town), who demonstrated how much this new administration means to them by filling up the War Memorial Plaza, and the Inner Harbor by the thousands to show support of the new president, and to be a living part of American History.

 

Even though there are those who are still afraid, full of fear, and in some cases hate for the new much needed changes that are currently taking place in our country, even they cannot dampen, downplay, or deny the power that is clearly in full force as the result of this movement created by the people of the United States of America, in conjunction with President Elect, Barack Obama, and Vice President Elect, Joe Biden.

 

Thanks to Barack Obama, Joe Biden, and the people of the United States for standing up to the powers that be, and the status quo, in order to bring about the positive change that this nation needs in order to insure it’s survival.

 

Above all else, I thank GOD that he saw fit to let me live to see these times.
