My face book poetry

Tell me a story….. of
What has transpired as a tired old cliche “America is the Disney land of the world”
and the “Culture of make believe” as some smart intelligent people try to conceive of part time justice, while those who are touched and sodden with the weeping souls of the children of the night take flight in the stories of long lost heroes and sheroes
Listen as tales are told of the times when things use to be good in the neighborhoods, and the street urchins would be looked after by Mamma Rose
an overweight, house dress, wig wearing, queen ,who did not have a mean streak anywhere in her body or spirit as the story goes , or Mr. Cook janitor supreme who played a mean game of checkers among other things, and watched us from his porch, as we ran from one block to the next. That kind of love stood the test of time. The crime in those days was if you did not speak and everyone learned to turn the other cheek by sharing what they had, nobody was mad at being poor and no one locked their doors in fear, cause the notion of friendship in the community was dear to the hearts and souls of everyone; well nobody thought it was fun to shoot up the block,people would knock before they entered and say please, caring for others was not a disease that you would try not to catch, and folks would not think you were crazy if you grew a garden and kept busy, lazy was an attitude left for the rich, we all had an responsibility to clean up the mess, this selfish world has made of our lives, and heroes and sheroes thrive on finding good to do. So we were told to not let the dust grow old on your behind, find good to do because this world with all its problems , cares and troubles and joys is wholly Holy thine. learn to care and love others is how you need to spend your time here and life is simple “Just be kind”

Where do we go from here?

Historically this tragedy fits within the continued struggle for African Americans to find dignity and respect as a community.

We all need to ask this question. Where will this tragedy take us as a community?

Can we continue to function in this nation without a serious conversation about Race?

Major Inventions by African-Americans

  • By: Nailah Ellis Timberlake

Some of the world’s most popular inventions were created by African-Americans, dating back to 1820, when Thomas Jennings, believed to be the first African-American inventor to receive a patent, created a more efficient dry cleaning process. Many years later, Judy W. Reed became the first African-American female inventor with her hand-operated dough kneader and roller. Reed, who was illiterate, signed the patent with an ‘X.’

This is an invention made by Patricia E. Bath, M.D.

Laserphaco Probe
Year patented: 1986
Inventor: Patricia E. Bath, M.D.,
 (1942–), first woman to chair an ophthalmology residency program in the United States

A specialized tool and procedure for the removal of cataracts, the Laserphaco Probe increased the accuracy and results of cataract surgery, previously performed manually with a mechanical grinder. Created with highly accurate laser technology, the Laserphaco Probe combines an optical laser, irrigation system and suction tubes. The laser vaporizes the cataracts and lens material via a 1-millimeter insertion into the patient’s eye and a replacement lens is inserted. Its use has helped restore the sight of several people who had been blinded by cataracts for up to 30 years.
