Standard Bearers

When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself.

Ever noticed more and ever more how standards change to suit certain groups?

Ever noticed those standards are based on the need to control groups, usually those perceived as the ‘undeserved poor’ or darkly pigmented?

Those were my thoughts as I was called an anti-Semite and all sorts of other unpleasant names (labels). Including sexist and sexually insulting. Why? For stating facts: Israel is a racist country.

Israel has crossed the line between war and unnecessary force, as well as torture.

The standard bearers, with Zionists leanings, proceeded to repaint me with labels such as anti-Semite which has legal implications.   All the labels used by these standards bearers have legal implications and that is why they are used!

Labels are pivotal tools used by standard bearers to redefine our understanding of the images we see, words we read and the sounds we make.

USA’s foreign policy is dominated by labels. Labels that are riddled with fear and threats have become part of the US foreign policy arsenal.

As much as the standard bearers tried, they could not deflect nor distract me. The key is to remember labels are tools to change scenarios. Do NOT let labels stifle or kill your voice.

The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people. – Martin Luther King Jr.

I am a first generation Jamaican immigrant whose experiences and accomplishments were made possible by the courage, sacrifices and the heroic acts of many whose bodies have rotted away in unmarked graves. Those are my heroes. Their sacrifices and death paved the way for my children and I. Failure to Listen is a token of my eternal gratitude. Failure to Listen is a tribute those generations of unmarked graves occupied by people of all races whose ultimate sacrifice of life opened the door for me and others, THANK YOU. Failure to Listen uses cultural lenses to appreciate and understand the relationships between current events and our values, beliefs and attitudes. Culture is everything without it we are nothing. Failure to Listen will take you on a journey to recognize the beauty of our differences as the seeds to creativity, innovation and resolving disparities. By sharing my personal and professional experiences, I hope to do justice to the perspectives of those who are rarely heard or listened to. This site is not to incite anger but rather to provoke thought. It is my hope that Failure to Listen will work to foster intergroup dialogues and motivate readers to step outside the box and get to know ALL PEOPLE. In the spirit of Martin Luther King, let's join hands and remember his famous speech about a dream... A small group of thoughtful people could change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. -Margaret Mead

  1. Just one week ago I had a close encounter with these intellectual perversions. A presentation on the US Power Elite I was to give at the Invitation of a lecturer at a Berlin University was widely disturbed by shouts and the attempts of smearing me with “Antisemitism” and “Rightism”. Those henchmen & henchwomen of the Empire were not shy to put me to the “right corner” though I was surrounded by a whole number of good African friends. An absurdity which could have killed the lecturer (a very engaged old Lady of Egyptian descend) by high blood pressure! Those were Nazi like methods!
