The recent events has struck me in ways I just can't describe nor explain; every negative feeling & emotion has invaded me like never before! As I'm typing this,... I'm struggling big-time!
Change is an IMMEDIATE MUST; anything else WILL NOT DO!!!
Here's what I plan to push for moving forward with my platform:
Some...Components to help rid this Racial & Social injustice (Pandemic)
Police brutality – MUST have an extensive vetting & screening process system in place in selecting new law enforcement officers! Certain criteria MUST be met for all law enforcement positions! An annual mandatory training program should be in place for all existing officers that will address various components, i.e, community interactions,... building trust & respect throughout their communities and exercising self restraint during challenging times in the field. Law enforcement officers should be held at a higher standard (and accountability) than the individuals they swear to serve & protect… They should NEVER feel like they have an unofficial licence to hurt & kill! A database needs to be in place for officers who were sited and or reprimanded for previously infractions.
Racial discrimination & unfair treatment within the workforce – This starts from the very top executives to set the 'Right' culture within the company! Better vetting & screening process for hiring managers & supervisors; certain criteria MUST be met for these positions. An annual mandatory training program should be in place for all existing executives, managers and supervisors that will focus on, building trust & respect with ALL employees, provide an even & fair playing field to ALL employees for advancement within their perspective companies. The 'Buddy' system nor nepotism should NEVER be a factor nor reason for advancement! Not everyone is built to motivate, inspire & LEAD!
A voice & action from the 'Silent' - There needs to be more activity from ‘Individuals’ who are looking from the outside... & who are NOT impacted or affected by this racial pandemic. These 'Individuals' will no long be allowed to play on both sides of this fence... Their silence will no longer be allowed nor accepted!
NO ONE left behind - Providing the necessary means for areas that are economically challenged (i.e,.. healthcare, food, job opportunities, housing, etc...) is long overdue; this issue is a major agitator for the overall racial & social divide in this country. Once the black & brown people in this country feel like they actually 'MATTER'... only then will the healing begin!
We need to transform into ONE TEAM,... AND ONE FAMILY!!!
