Watching Her Wake Up on Her Deathbed. Ratify the Equal Rights Amendment

UPDATE:. The 19th Amendment gave Women the Right to Vote but it doesn't go far enough. Let's celebrate 100 years of voting rights for women by ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment in 2020.

With the protection of the Equal Rights Amendment, Pop Culture would not be able to declare "Open Season" on women as has been done for DECADES in Music, in Movies & in TV Advertising.

On This Day, September 4, 2020 I honor the memory of my Mom Brenda Annette Stanley on her Birthday.

Born on 9/4/1942 in Gastonia, North Carolina, Mom died on August 12, 2012 just shy of her 70th Birthday.

My Mom's Mom was Ruth Elizabeth Brown. Ruth Brown had a brother named Jack Brown.

Mom's Uncle Brown OWNED a Radio Station.

Consider this, if my Mom's Uncle was a BROADCAST PIONEER - which he for a fact was - & white English-Speaking people are to blame for people "Speaking in Code," don't you think I would have been "Speaking in Code" my entire life???

If my Uncle Brown knew about this, if my Uncle Brown participated in this, if my Uncle Brown was a "Code Speaker," HE NEVER TOLD ANY OF US ABOUT THIS.

THIS is my motivation.

UPDATE. Today, March 19th is the start of "March Madness" so I thought I would highlight WHY we do still need the Equal Rights Amendment by looking at the MADEA Franchise' latest offering " A Madea Family Funeral"

PEOPLE are INDIVIDUALS - we are NOT our actors, good or bad.

Stuff like this does not improve our lives or make our lives better. In fact, it pisses people off, Madea.

When the viewing public sees or hears something that inspires feelings of anger, will the expression of that anger be Positive or Negative?

When we stand up & say "that's not right," we take positive action to right a wrong.

Case in point about those NAMES & NUMBERS: local TV News anchor Gina Gaston on ABC 13. I can't believe she's any too happy about her NAME BEING GASTON.


My Mother is buried at GASTON MEMORIAL PARK in Gastonia, North Carolina.

I'm not too happy about all of that GAS myself. In fact I was pretty angry, more like FURIOUS when I wrote this piece below, MADEA.

So what will we do with this information?

We express this in a positive way & TEACH HOW TO STOP IT.

People are NOT their Actors.

People are NOT their POLITICIANS.

PEOPLE are Individuals.

Learn to treat PEOPLE as Individuals.

Learn to treat INDIVIDUALS with RESPECT.
