Gareth Henry Fights for the LGBTQ Jamaican Community

Saturday, October 13th, 2018

There are still 76 countries where same-sex relationships are considered criminal; people can suffer from persecution or even death in these countries. Jamaica is one of them. Gareth Henry who spends much of his time trying to save the lives of LGBTQ people from his home country of Jamaica.

39-year-old refugee Gareth Henry has said that 13 of his friends died from homophobic attacks. He helped report anti-gay hate crimes to the police and was an activist towards gay rights. He now lives in Toronto and was a former co-chair of the Jamaica Forum of Lesbians, All-Sexuals and Gays (J-FLAG).

He says that people in Jamaica live in constant fear because viciousness against the gay community is standard. Gareth Henry says that people try and live day to day. He experienced the violence multiple times while living in Jamaica and lived in hiding. Fleeing nearly for his life, he decided to leave his home country and went to Canada.

Gareth Henry works at Toronto People with AIDS Foundation in Canada. He volunteers at Rainbow Railroad which is a nonprofit that helps relocate LGBTQ people from the different persecuted countries around the world. Touched by so many of the sad and horrific stories that some of the LGBTQ people have gone through, he fights for them. Some of the people’s families have even tried to get their children out of these countries because they know what will happen to them.

Henry takes no pride in his former nationality of Jamaica, but other people have a different mindset. He has experience in communicating with LGBTQ people begging and pleading for help from the persecution that they suffer from. Many people are not aware of the gravity of the situation. In 2016 alone, he was able to help 60 refugees move to new countries, and many of them were Jamaican.

Gareth Henry believes that change comes from when a country bands together and supports the community. Many advocacy groups are challenging and striving to make a difference in Jamaica.

The End Citizens United and its Contributions to the USA political Landscape

Tuesday, October 9th, 2018

The End Citizens United holds that high levels of inefficiencies mark the American political and electoral processes. The group argues that those issues are linked to the role of big money in the electoral activities. Currently, there are no regulations on the number of finances that politicians can receive from donors to support their political activities. Consequently, billionaires and large corporations have seized this opportunity as being one of the ways that they can sway the elections to their favors. They undertake to support leaders who are keen in implementing policies and initiatives that favor their agendas. It holds that the leaders lack accountability and are less committed to addressing the issues facing the electorates. Read this article at Chronicle of Week to learn more.

The mission of the End Citizens United is thus to end the role of big money in the system. It undertakes to finance and support the candidature of individuals that are keen on pushing for positive reforms. In the past, the End Citizens United has pushed for the election of individuals such as Hilary Clinton, and Maggie Hassan. Although its contributions have been in only one election cycle, the group has managed to secure the support of many citizens and politicians. Through the support of the grassroots individuals, the group has been on the leading front in advocating for accountability and upholding of the rights of the electorates.

The End Citizens United V. F.E.C. Supreme Court Ruling

The Supreme Court Ruling in 2010 in the listed case changed the nature of the American politics. Unlike the previous settings where there were regulations on the number of resources that Candidates and political parties could receive from diners, the ruling upheld unlimited financing. Éclair on, The Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002 had sought to ensure that there was a limit on the amount of resources used in an election. The provision had the benefit of controlling the impacts that billionaires and large corporations had on the process. It is thus the goal of the End Citizens United to ensure that this ruling is reversed. It is only through such a setting that the American elections would record a high level of accountability, efficiency, and transparency.

Charlamagne Tha God Offers President A Memory…

Monday, October 8th, 2018

 

Charlamagne Tha God is a hip-hop producer and radio personality. Charlamagne runs his own company, CThaGod World LLC and co-host of Brilliant Idiots a favorite podcast. Charlamagne Tha God has directed and acted in movies like Bodied (2017), on the run eating (2018) and Grow House (2017) to mention but a few. That’s why Charlamagne took to social media when the president tweeted from the White House about the “..dangerous times” that young men currently live in.

In his tweet the president suggests that an otherwise perfect man can be completely ruined by false allegations. Charlamagne Tha God certainly agrees, but his choice of young men to reference was of particular interest. He referenced the Central Park Five. The radio host welcomed the president to “…the black man’s world!” After that, he suggested that now the president knows how the Central Park five felt.

Let’s rewind for those that are unaware of the young men referenced. The Central Park five were five African American men that were wrongfully accused in 1989 of raping a white jogger that survived the attack. Donald Trump spends almost $90k that year publishing a full-color ad in the press suggesting that then-mayor (Koch) bring the death penalty back to New York. See Related Link for more information.

His exact words were along the lines of “…I want to hate these muggers and murderers. They should be forced to suffer.” Long story short? The real perpetrator came forward, the five were exonerated (after serving many years) and the NYPD was forced to share what is perhaps the most blatantly obvious railroading of justice ever caught on tape; the interrogation of the five boys.

Charlmagne’s reference was a wise one indeed. No matter what one’s opinion on Kavanaugh or the Central Park 5 is, one thing is an undeniable fact. Kavanaugh had little trouble defending his position for the highest court of the land while the five young men went unheard for far too long. Another fact? Kavanaugh was applying for a career change while the young men in NYC really were guilty until they could scramble to prove their innocence. Unfortunately it took them 13 years to do this!

Another major feat for him was when he partnered with his fellow badminton player Samuel O’Brien Ricketts to win the men’s doubles gold medal. This was at the 2018 Central American and Caribbean games. Badminton is a game that runs in the family blood, it seems. This is evident when he made the team with his sister Geordine Henry. They went ahead to win the Jamaican National Badminton Championships Mixed Doubles for a record six times. Also, he is the winner of the BWF International Challenge/series in the category of men’s singles in 2014 and 2015.

Being a victim of harassment and beatings, he vowed to dedicate his time to save other J-FLAG members from discrimination, hatred and persecution.

Organization Gold Has A Coffee Culture That Is Different From Mainstream

Friday, October 5th, 2018

There is no doubt about the coffee culture that exists for Organo Gold today. This is most definitely a culture that is composed of coffee drinkers that do not want what is found in a typical grocery store. These are more so novelty coffee shop drinkers. This is what Organo Gold reaches out to. Bernardo Chua knew when he created a coffee brand that contained a ganoderma mushroom ingredient that contained a healing agent that there was a limited crowd that he would attract.

Ahhaahahaha

A post shared by 🇵 🇮 🇯 🇦 🇳 🇦 🐼 🇵 🇦 🇳 🇩 🇦 (@pijana_panda) on

Bernardo new that when he went into this that everyone would not exactly be on board. Bernardo Chua realized, however, that there was a coffee culture that existed inside of his company that would make this brand survive. He knew that there were people in place that we’re going to appreciate something that many other people that were satisfied with coffee from Starbucks or a typical grocery store would not exactly appreciate.

What Organo Gold has become is a brand of coffee that speaks to a generation of consumers that want something that does not fit into a box. They want a creative brand that challenges everything that they have ever known before. There were no coffee brands that contained healing agents before Organo Gold. This is something that is totally off the grid. It is something new and innovative, and that is the reason why it has managed to captivate so many consumers.

Bernardo Chua made a decision to utilize this creative spark as his marketing niche. His ability to connect with a coffee culture that often consists of college students and coffee shops and people that like poetry may have made him highly successful with the young millennial crowd. He did not have to conform to any type of standard to connect with his potential audience.
