Greetings On-Line Family:

Happy Labor Day

Happy 46th Anniversary of  the Independence of Trinidad and Tobago  TnTEmblem-2.jpg (14161 bytes) 


The women I admire the most...oh how I appreciate having the opportunity to examine two of them this week, and I must say what I have learned is incredible!  They are extremely passionate, brilliant, fantastic leaders, powerful and most importantly strong. Who else could I be talking about but Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton.  Both are so very admirable and absolutely splendid women!!!

      Michelle Obama, the wife of the nominated Democratic Presidential Candidate got me all “teary eyed” on Monday night as she spoke to the world at the Democratic National Convention in Denver.  For me, it was not so much her speech, but it was the image of this unique and beautiful African-American woman addressing the nation, and the exceptional position and mission she has been chosen to fulfill along with her husband. She was the image of magnificence, a loving mother and wife and was clearly her husband's friend and partner...she was indeed exceptionally inspiring.

The different emotions I experienced as she stood on the stage of the Convention while passionately delivering her speech to the nation, were overwhelming.  However, pride was mainly what I felt.  I imagined how proud her mother was feeling at that moment and all the American's particularly the older generation who never thought they would ever see the day in their lifetime when an African-American woman could potentially become the First Lady.  As the camera focused on Michelle's mother I did see the pride on her face, and most importantly I witnessed her eyes full of tears, but it was tears of joy.  What a night that was for many Americans...the night the potential First lady made us all cry (all races), with her moving speech of her family, her upbringing, her life, her love and support of her children and her husband.

  HILL-A-RY!!! What an excellent speech she delivered on Tuesday, August 26th at the Democratic National Convention.  I have come to respect this woman so much for her accomplishments in life and during the primaries; most importantly I admire and respect her for her persistence and "never giving up attitude", she is certainly strong and a fighter.   However, I have new-found respect for her because of her speech.  She completely captured me on Tuesday night 8/26/08 especially when she pointed out it was not about her.  Her statement was as follows: "I want you to ask yourselves: Were you in this campaign just for me?  Or were you in it for the young Marine and others like him?  Were you in it for that mom struggling with cancer while raising her kids?  Were you in it for the boy and his mom surviving on the minimum wage?  Were you in it for all the people in this country who feel invisible?"  Additionally, she "blew me away" on Wednesday 8/27/08 when on the floor of the Convention as they were going through the process of the  "Roll Call" Votes and as they got to the state she is Senator of (New York), this exceptional Senator placed a motion on the floor stating: "Madam Secretary I move that the Convention suspend the procedural rules and suspend the further conduct of the Roll Call vote -  all votes cast by delegates will be counted, and that I move Senator Barack Obama of Illinois be selected by this Convention by acclamation of the Nominee of the Democratic Party for President of the United States.See the video clip powered by YouTube by clicking here!  Of course the motion was voted on and passed!!!

I am, and was so moved as I followed the Democratic National Convention live on C-Span over this past week.  (I must commend C-Span on their non-interrupted full - live coverage of the Convention.)  So many positive speeches, and what was most rewarding was seeing the smiles from the happy faces of the different races - of these United States.  So very motivating and gratifying!!!

Every night for some reason or another during the speeches and just glimpsing the expressions on the faces of the crowds of people in attendance, I honestly couldn't help but shed a tear (as many others in the crowds, and probably many who were in their homes as they followed the convention activities on TV. ) I know I must sound silly and week, but this obviously means a lot to me.  I simply cannot find the words to express my feelings.  You know...the thought of the civil rights struggle - the marches for justice and equality, the segregation, the beatings, the killings, the assassination of Martin Luther King, and the many other wrongs the African-American people have endured.  I know the older generation is experiencing profound joy because of this historic time in American history, and is thankful for being blessed to have been able to witness (in their lifetime) this milestone.

  "It is with profound gratitude and great humility I accept your nomination for the Presidency of the United States."  says Barack Obama on August 28th, 2008 after a long series of applauds from the approximately 84,000+ jubilant, chanting supporters who attended the Democratic National Convention at the Invesco Field, Mile High Stadium in Denver Colorado!       BARACK OBAMA IS INDEED THE DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE.  Major history has been made this day: Thursday, August 28, 2008 - the First African-American nominated by a major political party as their Presidential Candidate.  Lord knows I never thought I would see this day come in my lifetime.  The speech Mr. Obama delivered as he accepted the Democratic Presidential Nomination on this 45th Anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King's "I Have A Dream" speech, was remarkable.   This brilliant man Mr. Obama dealt with a lot of important issues: the economy, taxes, health care, energy, national security, foreign policy and many other factors that many of us are concerned about, and stated "this election was not about me, it was about you" (the American people).  Most importantly he basically expressed to his opponent Senator McCain that "IT'S ON".  This is indeed one of the most defining moments of our nation, and this nomination is an absolute validation of Dr. King's dreams.   This is truly phenomenal!!!!  In a future e-mail I will share with you this exceptional speech.



HurricaneKatrina.gif (31266 bytes)   This Friday, August 29th marks the 3rd Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.  As you know Hurricane Katrina - a category 3 storm was one of the most devastating storms in the history of the United States.  The most destruction and deaths mounted from the storm surges that destroyed the levees which resulted in massive flooding throughout the city of New Orleans, and many surrounding cities.  So many lives were lost, so many families were separated and so many homes were ruined.  New Orleans had lost 1/3 of its population - approximately 1,500-1,800+ deaths, and the the city was completely devastated (approximately 81 billion in property damage!  For all of America the most sickening and worrisome thing that took place was the slow response for help from the Government. I will never get out of my mind the images I saw on the news/media, which was overwhelming, and which I never thought I would see happen on American soil.  The hauling of people into the Superdome as if they were not human beings, but were cattle; the dead that was laying in the streets, and the tears of grief stricken children, mothers, sons, fathers, daughters and entire families begging for help.

You must know up until last year (2 years after the storm) we all were disheartened that the city was still struggling, and the citizens of the city were still suffering tremendously.  I remember wondering and expressed my feelings  to you my on-line family and ask why?  "Why was it that an American city was still struggling.  Why is it that the residents are still practically homeless and continues enduring so much pain from their loss?  Why is it taking so long to recover and rebuild this city?"  Some of the problems that the citizens were enduring last year (the 2nd anniversary) are as follows:  (1) a high number of homelessness; (2) approx. 42,250 families living in formaldehyde contaminated trailers provided as emergency housing by the government; (3) the failure of federal funding; (4) very little government aid; (5) none or very little rebuilding especially in the predominantly black Lower 9th Ward; (6) Crime being extremely rampant; (7) Insurance costs escalating and the companies were wheedling their way out of paying for insured losses; (8) taxes going up (property); (9) The city services were low and not of good quality; (10) Mental health problems "skyrocketing"; (11) difficulties finding jobs, and finding decent housing (which the Federal Government had threatened to cut off assistance to folks), and (12) a high number of suicides.

On this 3rd Anniversary I learned that recovery progress is still very slow.  Additionally, I learned that: (1) 6 in 10 Katrina survivors the lives are in the most part back to normal and see recovery moving in the right direction; (2) 4 in 10 say their lives are still disrupted; and (3)  7 in 10 say they see very little or no progress in making housing affordable or in controlling crime.  Many others feel there are little or no progress in making medical services available, strengthening public schools, and attracting jobs or rebuilding neighborhoods.  Actually, many residents are dissatisfied with or angry about the lack of progress.  I learned that at the end of May the FEMA trailer park "Renaissance Village" that housed the formaldehyde contaminated trailers in which hundreds of families lived, was closed.  This left many to move into hotels.  

I also learned earlier this month Federal investigators raided the downtown offices of a city chartered nonprofit agency accused of abusing a federally financed program that was crated to clean up houses damaged by Katrina.  This agency was hired by the city to run the 3.6 million program, which was intended to help elderly and poor residents gut and board up their storm-damaged houses and to mow their lawns.  Instead it was discovered money appeared to be gone to politically connected contractors who did little or no work on the houses.  

From all what I have learned through my research of the progress of the rebuilding of New Orleans, I am lead to believe that not much have been done in this year (the 3rd Anniversary,) and most importantly not much have been done for the people of New Orleans.  Of course some have rebuilt and is recovering, but many others are still living in trailers and hotels, and really not much have been done to help them return to their normal life.  Clearly, 3 years later progress must have been slow and I am sickened by it.  I am more upset to learn that Hurricane Gustov may strike New Orleans in a few days from now...how awful!!!

I say to you my on-line family please do everything in your power to help those who are suffering in New Orleans, talk to your Congressman and Senators and even the Presidential front-runners.  I'm not sure if it will work, but we can all try, maybe with all our voices being heard something will be done to fix this problem that continues in New Orleans.  For up-to-date news on Katrina click the following link: http://www.hurricanekatrinanews.org/

Caribbean-Americans Band Together to Celebrate Culture, Democracy and Barack Obama!


On August 31, 2008, Caribbean Promoters United (CPU) will present "Wine for Your Life," a large-scale fundraiser concert at Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn, New York. The event will feature not only seasoned and renowned artists from the Caribbean but also major U.S. artists. The event will serve to raise awareness on the power of the vote, as well as a substantive contribution to Sen. Barack Obama's election campaign.


Caribbean culture celebrates reveling for carnival, and many of life's other pleasures, but it's time that a stand is taken on an important issue: the political process. "Wine for Your Life" was designed with that purpose at heart, and is the first event of its kind in the Caribbean community.


Desma Bidjou-Adams, a founding member of CPU said, "The project was inspired by a growing concern that I had regarding the perception of Caribbean Americans within my age group. Although many of us are heavily involved in the preservation of our culture and participate by promoting events, attending carnivals and the like, we have greater concerns which are overshadowed by our fun-loving nature. Which results in the perception that we (Caribbean-Americans) 'ent' serious, and frankly, that is just not the case. With "Wine for Your Life," we are showing staunch support for Sen. Obama in his presidential bid and underscoring the importance of having the voice of our people heard in the upcoming elections. Not only can we fete for fun, but we can fete for freedom to vote and the issues that matter most."


The members of Caribbean Promoters United have come together to combat the prevailing stereotypes of apathy and wanton thrill-seeking in the Caribbean community. With this event, CPU seeks to start a change in the public face of the Caribbean-American.

About Caribbean Promoters United

Caribbean Promoters United (CPU) is a non-profit organization consisting of a team of eight established and highly-motivated Caribbean event promotion groups based in New York City: CMA Promotion, Focus on Divas, In & Out Promotions, Marcus Crew, OPP Crew, PMJ Promotion, THC Entertainment and Wide Shut Entertainment. The organization was created to empower young people to aspire to political office and raise the standard of living within the Caribbean American community.
