Blog: Get-on-the-Bus Tour: A Trip to 3 Black Businesses in Los Angeles County on 7-22-17

By Dr. Maxine Thompson

http://www.maxinethompson.com

maxtho@aol.com

When we look around us, as African Americans, we see so many problems in the Black community we don’t know where to begin. Poverty. Homelessness. Mass incarceration. Police brutality. Murder.

So, where do we start to help fix some of the problems? Like Booker T. Washington said in his autobiography, Up From Slavery, we start where we are. To this end, Dr. Rosie Milligan, as the chairperson of the West Coast Supporters of the Harvest Institute (http://www.harvestinstitute.org/ (Harvestinstitue.org.) under the leadership by Dr. Claud Anderson,) spearheaded another “Get on the Bus” tour to 3 Black businesses on 7-22-17.

This is not the first tour, but this is better because we now have social media. In Dr. Claud Anderson’s book, Powernomics: The National plan to Empower Black People, (2001), he proposed that, as a race, we do business with our own kind, just as we did before integration. This is nothing new. This is exactly what we did when we were segregated in America before we drank the Kool-Aid that “The White Man’s Ice was Colder.”

When Blacks could only do business with one another, we had Black Wall street, Black hospitals, Black hotels, Black schools, Black grocery stores, and Black hair care industry, just to name a few. Unfortunately, Black businesses are failing at an alarming rate because of a lack of support from the Black community. Many Blacks now will buy the same products, only from another race.

In an effort to alleviate this problem, Dr. Rosie Milligan initiated The get-on-the-bus tour on 7-22-17. It involved shopping at 3 Black businesses in the Los Angeles County area. First, we went to a Black Beauty Supply place, A Girl Cave. 1856 w. Manchester. Inglewood CA. (323) 875 8116, next, Ms. Ann’s Boutique 2633 W. Manchester, Inglewood, CA (320) 738 9528, and last, Grocery Outlet Bargain Market, Owner Kia Patterson, 2175 West Rosecrans Ave., Compton, CA 90222 (310)668-5527.

What is different now is we have social media to help spread the word. Please contact the businesses listed above or post on your social media walls.

Remember. No one can save us, but us.

This was an exhilarating experience. Hope we do it again soon.

Along this mindset, you can also now order Black made products from www.buyblackmovement.com.

If you would like to launch a “Get on the Bus” tour in your city, contact Dr. Rosie Milligan at, 1425 W. Manchester Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90047. (www.drrosie.com.) 323-750-3592.

*Dr. Claud Anderson is a noted black author who has successfully implemented social and economic change throughout his career. His unique background of experience is reflected in PowerNomics: The National Plan. To implement the strategy of industrializing Black communities, he has established a vertically integrated seafood industry that is currently operating and will expand into urban areas across the nation. His company is one of the few black-owned companies to make stock available to the general public through an initial public offering. In addition to his most recent seafood project, he owns a vertically integrated publishing company and was one of the first blacks to own a radio station in Florida.

Dr. Anderson headed two economic development corporations in Florida and was appointed by President Jimmy Carter as Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Department of Commerce and the head of the Coastal Plains Regional Commission. In that position, he worked with governors in the southeast states to develop and fund economic development projects, including seafood. He was Coordinator of Education for the State of Florida under Governor Rubin Askew during integration and has held a number of high-level positions in national and state politics. He is also President of The Harvest Institute, a black research, education and advocacy organization. He is imminently qualified to offer a plan to empower Black America.

Excerpt from my eBook, Affirmations and Essays for Melanoid People by Dr. Maxine Thompson (2016)

“Whether the media forgets, we should never forget. Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, Alva Braziel, Delrawn Smalls, Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, Michael Brown, and on the anniversary of Sandra Bland’s death, everything is the same. Let’s not forget Trayvon Martin, either. Do you recall any convictions for these murder victims? Do you expect to see any convictions for the more recent murder victims, Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, which were captured on video and live streamed for the world to see? Or more recently, Charles Kinsey, a behavior therapist, who was shot by police Monday, 7-18-16, with his hands held up in the air?” (July 2016)

Juneteenth.com: “Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free.

Note that this was two and a half years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation – which had become official January 1, 1863.”

Clarion Cry for Freedom!

By Dr. Maxine Thompson

Juneteenth Poem

June 17, 2017

(In Memory of Philando Castile)

Ever wondered how the ancestors survived
the boat ride from Africa to America?
Smells of everybody’s lives jumbled together
as they lay flanked side by side, in a cesspool
of blood, tears, and stool, dreaming the undreamable.

Deep in the bowels of a slave ship,
where many made their tomb,
a mother’s tears flowed from dried-eyed ducts,
for the suckling babe snatched from her breast,
while hating the enemy whose seed now grew in her womb.

Wait a minute, that’s my old poem, ‘The Middle Passage,’ 1992, regarding crack babies.
Scratch that.
Have things gotten any better in 2017?
Yesterday, I went to Leimert Park for a write-a-thon outing
and stumbled onto a Juneteenth celebration.
Revolutionary poet spouting words about “Police brutality”
Signs saying Stolen Legacy,
Liberation.
Libations.
Mass incarceration.
Sounds of Michael Jackson in the air
Michael Jackson impressionist moonwalking in golden gym shoes
Smells of alcohol mixed with medical marijuana wafting on the wind
Harambee’s Nag Champa Incense
Rivaling smells of smoked Barb-que
Rastafarian dancers singing and performing on the stage
Black men playing chess,

Our hair boasting Afros, Twists, Naturals,
Black to Blonde to Silver dreadlocks,
Dashikis Colors/green/red/black/yellow/brown.
Skin colors, sable browns to ochre to magnolia,
African Drummers
Down-home Blues bumping.
Thin alcoholic woman twerking.
Our melanin belies the years of razor-cut faces, eyes fox-fire red,
Reflecting years of pain,
Men popping fingers.
Here we are, part of the Diaspora,
I love my people.
We love, we care, we die…too soon,
Terrorism is right here on American soil
for Black blood which runs in the street
At the hands of those who are to protect and to serve.
Let us not forget how the killer of Philando Castile has gone free
On Juneteenth.
Where is the justice?
A Mother’s Tears…
Juneteenth…..Freedom.

Blog: Why are the Homeless Invisible?

By Dr. Maxine Thompson
http://www.maxinethompson.com
http://www.maxinethompsonbooks.com

In my moment of silence today, I want to write about a woman I see who lives on the streets near my home. About 15 years ago, this woman was beautiful. Maybe she was in her mid-thirties at that time. Statusque. Shiny long black hair. Good looking by anyone’s standards.


However, I knew something was wrong when, one night, she came up to our car at the gas station and asked for money. She was holding a blanket, which supposedly had a baby in it. Of course, there was no baby in the blanket. She was just hustling.


Today, I see this same woman and she could pass for a beat-up 90-year-old woman. All her hair is gone. All her teeth are gone. She is gaunt. She sleeps on the ramp going up into the post office. I see her sitting on the curb, drinking beer in the morning. Sometimes, she is with other friends. I’m assuming they are substance abusers, when they get in a huddle and smoke crack on Friday nights. But, often, she is alone. I see her when she gets on the city bus, reeking of urine. She rides for free. She talks to herself. When she disappears, she is gone to jail. Then, she shows up again, when she is released. To many people, she is invisible.


It brings me to this question. Why are our homeless people invisible? All over the city, I see homeless people. I always say, “But for the grace of God, go I.” Perhaps some of these people used to work and lost their jobs. Rent is extremely high in L.A. People have begun to prop up tents on the sidewalk. I’m sure everyone is not a drug addict like the woman I described.


So what can I do? I understand the city has money to help the homeless. The missions in downtown LA are full. So where is this money going? Maybe it’s too late for the lady I see stumbling around in the street, but some families with small children could use the help. It could change the trajectory of their lives.


I’m just thinking out loud.


Here are some statistics for homelessness in California:


http://streetsteam.org/awareness/causes/?gclid=CKyL0JT-gdQCFQqDfgod2mEGvw


United States:


• In January 2014, there were 578,424 people experiencing homelessness on any given night in the United States
• Of that number, 216,197 are people in families, and 362,163 are individuals
• About 15% of the homeless population (84,291) are considered “chronically homeless” individuals
• About 9% of homeless people (49,933) are veterans
California:
• California hosts a total of 113,952 homeless individuals
o This represents 20% of all homeless people in the United States
• There are approximately 15,179 homeless veterans
Santa Clara County, California:
• In 2013, there were 7,631 homeless individuals in Santa Clara County
• By contrast, in 2015 there were only 6,556, representing a 14% reduction in homelessness in Santa Clara County.
o 4,654 of them were unsheltered
• There are approximately 683 homeless veterans
Did you know that homelessness costs Santa Clara County $520 million a year, an on average cost of $62,473 per chronically homeless person? Other consequences of homelessness
