the rise of hate

Why Is Everyone So Angry?

image20

I am sitting in a public place listening to (or rather, having to hear) two young boys talk to each other...or rather one young boy as he bullies another...."shut up" he continues to tell his brother, only the bully knows how the video game they are playing  should be played; of course, he demeans his victim's character and intellect...no, not in that fun, brotherly way...for real. The younger brother, the mark, says nothing for a long while, then, he defuses the situation by simply playing along.  The bully is appeased. There is calm.  


America is in the same situation.  We can't "Un-brother."  


These two young boys will be brothers forever.  This fear-filled domination (it's the bully who is loud and whose voice is slightly trembling) followed by the endless dance of avoidance will go on for years.  Maybe, forever.

The calm ends. 

When the older brother starts up again, the younger brother begins bullying the characters in the video game.


Not one American in a million is wondering, right now, why I, an adult, said nothing to either child.

Abraham Lincoln Boarded A Train...

In August, the OU-Tulsa campus reacted immediately to the anguish writer Clifton Taulbert opened a panel discussion on THE RISE OF HATE by reminding an overflow audience on the campus of OU-Tulsa that "Democracy is an ongoing test, an ongoing job...." 

"We have embarked upon an incredible journey that no other nation on the face of the Earth [had ever tried]." Channeling the Gettysburg Address, Taulbert asked,  

"How long will we endure?" 

Taulbert pointed out the measure of courage and endurance maintaining our "new" nation will require.  And, the necessity for united visions, united goals. "We can't just have a BBQ with five friends....this is a lifelong process.."  

 

But, There Were Heroic People

At a church in Tulsa, writer and broadcaster Connie Conley helped establish, IRON GATE, easily the city's most famous and most revered Soup Kitchen.   And, pretty swiftly, anger came from all sides, even from the church pews.  "But, there were heroic people" as well, she said.  One young Cherry Street businesswoman told the congregation that she wouldn't want Tulsa to be a city that didn't care for everyone. Conley's revelations about the efforts to keep IRON GATE fulfilling its mission featured a common ally to hate: misconceptions.  

One future donor to the project visited the site to prove his belief that it was not possible, as he had been told, that the majority of people accessing IRON GATE were "White Men."   

HOUSE BILL 2253 IS SIGNED INTO LAW

LAW CLARIFYING CONDITIONS FOR VOTER ELIGIBILITY IS SIGNED

image23

Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt signed House Bill 2253 clarifying voting rights for persons with a felony.  Oklahoma State Representative Regina Goodwin (D73/Tulsa) co-authored the bill with Oklahoma State Senator Stephanie Bice (D22/OKC).  According to Representative Goodwin "this law was 4 years in the making. A man in a rocking chair, who had been out of prison for 35 yrs. and did not know he could vote, led me to author the bill."   Oklahoma State Representative Regina Goodwin sent out her appreciation to Donna Thompson, Rhonda Bear,  R.. Baxter, Tulsa City Councilor Vanessa Hall Harper, Pam Slater, Oklahoma State Board of Elections Secretary Paul Ziriax, Leah DeWhitt. and Nikayla      Source: Representative Regina Goodwin/Facebook

ANDREW YANG AND THE AMERICAN FUTURE

This is a long form text area designed for your content that you can fill up with as many words as your heart desires. You can write articles, long mission statements, company policies, executive profiles, company awards/distinctions, office locations, shareholder reports, whitepapers, media mentions and other pieces of content that don’t fit into a shorter, more succinct space. Articles – Good topics for articles include anything related to your company – recent changes to operations, the latest company softball game – or the industry you’re in. General business trends (think national and even international) are great article fodder, too. Mission statements – You can tell a lot about a company by its mission statement. Don’t have one? Now might be a good time to create one and post it here. A good mission statement tells you what drives a company to do what it does. Company policies – Are there company policies that are particularly important to your business? Perhaps your unlimited paternity/maternity leave policy has endeared you to employees across the company. This is a good place to talk about that. Executive profiles – A company is only as strong as its executive leadership. This is a good place to show off who’s occupying the corner offices. Write a nice bio about each executive that includes what they do, how long they’ve been at it, and what got them to where they are.
