Ms. Deborah Danner

Ms. Deborah Danner was 66 yrs old. A documented history of mental illness that the police were aware of. Multiple officers in the apartment. She had a bat. They shot her twice and murdered her. They could’ve tased her. They could’ve tackled her. They could’ve talked her down. If you’re that afraid, you should never become a police officer. This is a horrific disgrace and a true representation of the hate and fear that lives in the spirit of our country.

We need IMMEDIATE police reform! Right now!


Eyez on the Prize

Trump is a disgusting person. He represents all that is “nasty” and ugly about America past and present. I can’t wait for him to go away. He is not a decent human being.

Unfortunately as long as we follow any form of media,they will be around to report the despicable things he says even after he loses. Smh. I look forward to working locally and nationally to build an America beyond what Donald Trump represents.

I look forward to riding the momentum of our first black president, to our first women president, and toward an America that meets the ideals of the language in our constitution. I look forward to building a new America, and I know it starts with me in my community.

When Hillary wins, I hope that she’s able to close the economic divide, and help schools and healthcare to thrive. I also know that my city councilman, state senator and assemblyman, US congressional representatives and senators, are all vitally important to the quality of living in my community. Most importantly, I know that organized people, those of us who currently don’t vote or aren’t registered to vote because life happens, must more forward collaboratively to make transformative change in our communities. If we are not taking these actions, what is life really about?

Hillary’s Strength and Grace

I have always believed that women have special powers. Maybe it’s because of my awesome mom Pauline Bowman or my amazing sisters Deanna Bowman Dawn Bowman and Denise Bowman-Washington. That belief has been reaffirmed by my wife Melissa Oppenheimer Bowman and many women that I have worked with throughout my life.

Those special powers were on display last night for the world to see. Hillary Clinton withstood the misogyny, immaturity, incompetence, and downright disgusting behavior and presence of this “man” with unflinching grace, strength, and brilliance. He attacked her husband and his infidelity, her choices as a public defendant in her early life, pointed his finger at her while “mansplaining,” and disregarded answering questions directly just to continuously attack her. He even threatened to throw her in jail if elected, another new low in our country’s history as stated by Michael Elliot.

Despite his desperate attempts to unravel her, she dismantled him last night.

She answered every question directly, clearly, and spoke with an authenticity that I personally have not seen from her. She displayed a vision for bringing people together while he wants to tear us apart. She represents possibility, while he represents fear. He is the American past, she, the global future.
Hillary Clinton was a great example last night for women, children, and everyone else watching. Her special powers were on display last night and she exemplified what being presidential looks like.
