Keep Swinging at Hurricane Harvey

IMG_20170830_194909

The Houston area is flooded on a scale that boggled the mind. Fortunately, people near and far are mobilizing to assist in rescue and recovery.

I gave a $ Super Power donation today to Terence Winkler, a friend’s brother, who lost everything, along with the eight children and four adults with him.

Here’s the link: https://www.paypal.me/twinkler1

He is a generous man richly deserving of generosity in return. I strongly support giving to the givers because their needs are so often overlooked.

Let’s keeping swinging at the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey!

#Super Comes in All Colors.

The above image ( my words and Justin Tyme’s digital magic ) is our response to the Charlottesville, VA., race riot.

As advocates inspired by heroic fiction, we shared a picture that seeks to bridge a widening divide in our body politic.

Some have been amused by it and others welcome it as affirmation of their own battered commitment to unity.

I define ” super ” as realizing ones unique potential and helping others. It transcends indentitarianism’s narrow focus on one group. We want the exceptional recognized in all colors and social categories.

When a couple of guys who call themselves ” Cap Black ” and the ” Redneck Superman ” tell America not to overlook who can be exceptional, people do a double take.

Two Cats & a Community.

#CapBlackRLSH pose with the Landlord

My ” sidewalk office ” near the automatic doors of the New Orleans Healing Center is an active one. While watching out for area neerdowells and opportunities to assist patrons, I’ve made the acquaintance of a pair of tuxedo cats, affectionately nick named the Landlord and Junior.

Junior was so dubbed by Sam, a great human and benefactor to neighborhood cats and dogs.

The cats graciously allow me to perform security and greeter roles in what is essentially their domain. In return, I ( along with their other humans ) feed them from the Centers food co-op, which sells organic cat and dog food.

I gave the larger feline the Landlord nickname because of her loud demand to be fed, up to and including following me to the Co-op’s doors, should breakfast not be served fast enough.

The Landlord and Junior enjoy daily affection and tasty tribute, as befits their high calling as community cats.

Patrons look forward to seeing them luxuriously sprawled on the sidewalk and honestly, the pair make my day as safety creator for the building.

I thought I’d share a few words about the Landlord and Junior, two cats who have a warm place in many hearts within the New Orleans Healing Center community.

Security Illiteracy

a-safety

A painful truth for many in what we call a civilized society is stubborn security illiteracy of many otherwise competent decision makers. By security illiterate, I don’t mean they lack credentials and certifications whose only use after failure to create safety is as improvised bandages. That’s not the illiteracy I reference.

Security illiteracy is willful refusal to personally or collectively take steps to deter proven threats around you. Alot of business owners fall into this category by ignoring persistent theft or even violent crime due to fear of having to spend money to combat it. I’ve seen club owners unconcerned about whether patrons dance through a gauntlet of known risk to buy drinks. So long as they made it to the bar, that was their only concern.

I recall one venue whose paralysis of analysis was so severe that local criminals robbed patrons like clockwork for years, confident nothing would be done. This made vendors feel like hostages, which they were.

Safety creation is not confined to the few in law enforcement and private security. Crime is too prevalent for the public to play the role of passive consumer. If a space you work in or frequent is run by security illiterates, don’t let their illiteracy produce your injury.

Create your own safety without apology!

Funding #CapBlack #RLSH’s Fight

a-cap-black-healing-center-blog-story

My Cap Black Street Patrol is a self funded, volunteer fellowship I created to deter street crime and involve people in creating easily accessible safety.

Primarily, I offer walking escorts to women in targeted areas. I also patrol streets ( and watch locations ) where repeated crime occurs, networking with victims, witnesses and other stakeholders.

Lastly, I advocate on behalf of victims who feel their cases have fallen through the cracks. This is done by contacting appointed and elected officials, in addition to media and other advocates.

People occasionally ask how can they contribute money to my calling. Here’s how:

Or

Mail a check or money order to: Nadra Enzi aka Cap Black P.O. Box 15585, New Orleans La. 70115.

I fund my fight through what I earn. Your support means I can fight in bigger, better ways. Lets create safety together.

#CapBlack #RLSH Mardi Gras March

a-cap-black-mardi-gras-2017

I marched in the 2017 Krew Delusion Mardi Gras parade on Saturday as a member of Guise of Fawkes, an activist themed krew. I secured our captain, who wore goddess Isis wings and a wagon float filled with trinkets called ” throws . ”

This was my inaugural walk in a parade ( after years of creating event safety and doing protest marches ) and I took a scenic two mile walk through downtown New Orleans, complete with a Cap Black cape to accompany matching hat; Cap Black Street Patrol t-shirt and new buttons. Yes, I was getting my RLSH ( real life superhero ) on while surrounded by costumed revelers.

After the parade I took me and my new cape on a first ever security assignment at a 24 hour store in the Marigny community, where my safety advocacy is focused.

Where else but the real life Gotham City of New Orleans can you have a day at the office like this?
