Slaveowners’ flag burned in Baltimore

first_imgThis July 4, while millions were preparing for fireworks and celebrations, the Baltimore People’s Power Assembly held a rally to combat the racist legacy of slavery. Committed activists gathered in a park in the Charles Village neighborhood of Baltimore to speak out against racism, demand that Confederate monuments be removed, and finally burn the Confederate flag.Thrust into the national spotlight again after the racist massacre of nine Black people in a church in South Carolina on June 17, the Confederate flag has been the object of many progressive protests around the country. It has also attracted support from reactionaries and racists.In Dundalk, a suburb of Baltimore, many Confederate flags were displayed at a local “heritage festival” on July 3 — to the horror of Dundalk’s Black residents. There have also been reports of an increase in Confederate flags flying on trucks throughout the region. These events represent, however, only some of the latest in the racist campaign of terror against Black America unleashed by the terrorist attack in Charleston.In light of these national tragedies, the Baltimore PPA demanded at the rally that the city government remove all monuments in the city that honor the Confederacy. This city is 70 percent Black and historically one of the largest free Black cities during the era of slavery. That it still has nine monuments that honor Confederate figures is a disgrace and offensive to the Black community.Maryland has many great Black daughters and sons who deserve to be honored in Baltimore, such as Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass.Before burning the Confederate flag, activists highlighted the criminal nature of racism in the United States by reading an excerpt from Frederick Douglass’ famous speech, “What to the Slave Is the Fourth of July?”The action concluded with activists dousing the racist flag with lighter fluid and setting it alight to the sound of vengeful and hopeful cheers.Photo: Baltimore Peoples Power Assembly burns Confederate flag on July 4.WW photo: Sharon BlackFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Volunteers want to clean up image

first_img Facebook Previous articlePartnership secures transportation for seniorsNext article041919_Stations_of_the_cross_JF_09 Digital AIM Web Support Pinterest WhatsApp TAGS  Twitter WhatsApp Local Newscenter_img West Odessa Volunteer Fire Department logo The West Odessa Volunteer Fire Department is attempting to clean up its image literally and figuratively. Fire chief Richard Pease said via phone Wednesday the WOVFD is inviting the public to help clean up its station and he also wants to show the community it has moved past its two previous scandals. Prior to Pease taking the reins in September 2018, the previous two fire chiefs were arrested and charged with felonies. “We want to let the public know that we are still here and even though we have two black eyes, we are still doing the job,” Pease said. “There are some trust issues with the public toward us and we are hoping to turn that around fairly quick. “We are going to let our actions speak louder than words.” Pease said the major step to improve the transparency of the WOVFD was forming a seven-member board to ensure funds are properly handled. Pease said the department has 15 volunteer firefighters. He said any of the volunteers except for the fire chief and the assistant fire chief can be part of the board. Pease said he knows the minds of the public won’t change overnight, but he said the department will be there for anyone in West Odessa needing assistance. “We’ve turned a lot of things around,” Pease said. “We’ve implemented a lot of new things and we are doing everything we can to keep it from happening again. “We’ve got a full board in place, so nothing is left up to one man. West Odessa is not a one man department. Everyone has a voice. Every expense the board knows about and has to approve.” The WOVFD is hosting a cleanup day beginning at 8 a.m. Saturday at the station located at 2757 N. Tripp Ave. Pease said he doesn’t know how long it will take to clean up the site, but he said the location is in major need of help. WOVFD members will cook hot dogs for the members of the community who come out and help with the clean up. “It looks like a junkyard,” Pease said. “There’s 30 years worth of junk out there that’s leaving. That’s where cleaning our image starts, right there at our house and at our station.” In a span of about 13 months, back-to-back WOVFD chiefs were arrested. Former WOVFD chief Jimmy Ellis and his wife Sherry Ellis were charged with property theft over $150,000, a first-degree felony, on Aug. 8, 2017. Tim Mason, Andrews County District Attorney who will be prosecuting the case, said Thursday the state has provided the defense with all of its information and the defense is now looking through the files. Mason said there’s nothing scheduled as of right now for the Ellis’. Former chief Sean Dixon held that role for more than year before he and his treasurer Stacie DeMoss Proctor were arrested Sept. 17, 2018, after an investigation by the Texas Rangers. Dixon and Proctor were each charged with tampering with or fabricating physical evidence, a third-degree felony. Dixon received a grand jury indictment for property theft over $150,000, a second-degree felony, and was booked and released on March 28, jail records show. The listed date of the offense was Aug. 8, 2017. Dixon had a waiver of arraignment for both charges on Wednesday, while Proctor had an arraignment hearing on Monday.

In addition to contributing to, he is also the online editor for DS News’ sister publication, MReport, which focuses on mortgage banking news. The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Consumer confidence ticked up for the fourth straight month in August, rising once again to a new seven-year high.The Conference Board’s Consumer Confidence Index climbed 2.1 points to 92.4 in the group’s August reading, marking the highest level of confidence since October 2007.August’s increase was driven by an increase in Conference Board’s measure of current economic sentiment, which grew to 94.6 from 87.9 in July. Most of that was spurred by more promising reports over the spring and summer as business and labor market indicators improved.On the other hand, the expectations component of the index slipped, falling one point to 90.9.”Looking ahead, consumers were marginally less optimistic about the short-term outlook compared to July, primarily due to concerns about their earnings,” said Lynn Franco, director of economic indicators for the Conference Board. “Overall, however, they remain quite positive about the short-term outlooks for the economy and labor market.”Out of those consumers surveyed, the number of those anticipating more jobs in the coming months fell to 17 percent from 18.7 percent in July, though the number of those expecting fewer jobs also dropped to 15.8 percent.Wage expectations were worse, with only 15.5 percent of respondents saying they expect their income to grow—down from 17.7 percent—and 11.9 percent expecting a drop in their earnings.Overall, August’s report is one to celebrate, says Chris Christopher, director of U.S. consumer economics at IHS Global Insight.”There has been some good news on the consumer front, such as well received employment reports and falling pump prices, though the current rise in food prices is a downer for many low-income and middle-income households,” Christopher said. “[The report] indicates that consumer confidence is maintaining itself at elevated levels and starting to gain traction.”Scheduled later this week is the final August reading of the University of Michigan/Thomson Reuters Index of Consumer Sentiment, which has not fared as well lately. Economists expect Friday’s release to show the index climbing to 80.5 after a disappointing first look earlier in the month.
