It is important to note that even though our families have a history of being "separated", still we rise recognizing the importance of mom, grandmother, dad, sister, brother, grandfather, aunt, uncle and extended family [slaves sold on Auction blocks, men and women forced to separate from family during key childhood growth to work for a Caucasian owner; our men sent away, men, children and women made to work in the fields for sharecropping (misnamed) and as domestics (whenever needed) to take care of Caucasian families while their children go lacking; to work without wages or proper wages, benefits and social security not paid; separated during Jim Crow with bombings, beatings and castration of our men and killing of African American men - placed with weights on them and put in rivers and/or hung-from-a-tree; African American women were separated from their husbands and sought for the sexual pleasure of the Caucasian owners; and young girls' virginity taken by Caucasian; separated when family members were sold separately as mother, father and child - depending on the desires of the Caucasian owner].
Today, it is the separation by double- and triple standards for selfish gains in the marketplace or targeted crimes for "misdemeanor" and "felony" crimes that disproportionately snag African American and other People of Color - Truth and Sentencing (heavy overuse and misuse). The separation by wholesale criminalizing and decade stocking of mega prisons (industrial prison complex) in small Caucasian towns and cites to boost their economy. Our men and women separated by many, many miles and family face difficulty to visit.
Then there are permanent separations caused by life sentencing (3 strikes you out drug crimes) and murders by homicides in the neighborhood by neighbors and by police. Separation of young males and females, men and women head of household (parents) have caused family "breaks", but no matter what, we stay connected. Then, there are the false cases found false after decades of imprisonment. I wonder how many of us are sitting in "prison" falsely convicted by those who failed to give "due process" because of bigotry and racism? How many have been put to death that were innocent?
Recently, we see a new phenomenon, "Stand your ground" law that has taken the life of two young African American males under 20. They were murdered. We have gone too far. Whether it is homicides at the census tract and neighborhood level by members of the same race or police. Or, Caucasian stalking - vigilante - privileged thinking that is more and more a threat. This is not right. We must stop it cold. It has become a "sick addiction" by some.
Milwaukee Professionals Association LLC is gearing up for ongoing response to the "open season", predatory and growing threats of the man-made diseases that prompt hate, psychopathic and sociopathic behaviors, distrust, and privilege-thinking.
MPA LLC RESPECT-4-RESPECT CAMPAIGN
The word-of-mouth campaign will allow LIKE-MINDS to join in solidarity to prevent and turn-off the lawlessness, violence, shootings, brutality, murders and economic sabotage for response to the diseases of racism, bigotry, discrimination, intolerance, exploitation, bullying and by-design Enduring Concentrated Poverty.
Milwaukee Professionals Association LLC knows that we can do better, if we choose to. This is your "Call to choose to".
Respect-4-Respect is another effort of AHOD/All Hands on Deck, WE CAN to re-define, re-brand and UN-trap hidden talent and vetted businesses at the census tract and neighborhood level, especially African American and other People of Color. These are the diverse populations that traditionally are burden with disparity and remain so far from deserved economics - even though People of Color work and pursue the rights guaranteed under the law. Even though they work two or more jobs to feed their families, pay their bills, plan to send their offsprings to college and the pursuit of happiness - Even though they are upright and law abiding - They remain with an infrastructure sub-level to what they put in the coffers.
Respect-4-Respect says, Enough already!
Respect-4-Respect says, Earth is the only planet known at this time a human can habitat for generations, it is wise that we get along.
Respect-4-Respect says, put yourself in the other person's place and see how you fair.
RESPECT-4-RESPECT says no one is Exempt.
Respect-4-Respect says, document criminalizing incidents with "Storytelling" and be sure to call names and give timeframes.
Respect-4-Respect says compete for a more aware and engaging neighborhood and world of ownership, citizenship, stewardship and accountability by ALL.
Respect-4-Respect says "put-in-check" inappropriate acts and remove those who fail to respect African American and other People of Color with "quickness" - this includes incarceration of elected-appointed-hired representatives, MEDIA pressure to print the ugly truth, use the tool of "recall" more often as well as joint and/or class-suits with "7-figure plus amounts attached".
Respect-4-Respect says tell the true stories so myths are corrected, rich and vibrant cultures are known and state-of-the-art wrongdoings are front and center for those who do not care, those in denial and those who do not know.
Respect-4-Respect says if you are a Caucasian Millennial that feel you have NO responsibility to what your forefathers did to enslave or your parent generation continued wrong to African American, you will need not only to "re-think your thesis" but you will need to benchmark your future with a leadership to correct the wrongs of "false and misguided" privilege behavior in the public square - this starts with not turning a blind-eye to wrongful acts that are unjust, how you treat African American and other People of Color and the vigorous change of LAWS that perpetuate racism.
