Daily assault targeting women and New Orleans impending Mardi Gras make this a perfect time to assert women’s right of safety.
This ceases being an abstract moral exercise when you listen to victims and ladies wary of leaving their homes.
Predators haven’t gotten the memo that women aren’t their personal clay pigeons. It’s up to the rest of society to send this message in no uncertain terms, verbally and literally, at work and play.
We must walk together; bike ride beside each other and promote women’s right of safety with the same zeal as other human rights causes.
Anything less means we accept this carnage as the cost of being born female- as bigoted a notion as any Americans have faced.

I won’t bore you with a recital of the insult being an American Black male competitor can be in the market place. I will offer my one technique for not accepting external limitations. Given grave speculation surrounding me regarding race relations under President Trump, perhaps this tidbit is timely.
I focus upon my potential and its expression to the exclusion of noisy, nosy naysayers. No matter how many doors slam in my face, I continually reach within to create new content or launch the next concept. Some readers will say this process is universal and thus not confined to one group. While agreeing with the universality of self-development, the Black variable is unique and demands specialization.
My autonomy angers some who refuse to acknowledge merit in someone like me. That is a gloomy fact whose silver lining is such economic visciousness isn’t absolute. A few in the marketplace welcomed me on my own terms, rewarding content and concepts I created.
The media and community embedding generated by my ” Cap Black ” safety creation brand name wouldn’t have happened if I waited to be hired to do this advocacy. Nobody let me be ” Cap Black ” and whether the new administration helps or hinders American Blacks, the final vote on who you are is yours alone. Protest if you must, but develop yourself at all costs. Even when ignored, you still must create in spite of exclusion. –

With an idea; a laptop; cell phone; lots of sidewalk time creating safety and a few super people, I created a humanitarian brand ” Cap Black Street Patrol ” to community build coalitions against street crime and homelessness in real time. I don’t do perpetual paralysis of analysis.
No one needed to attend lengthy academies nor does a big budget fund it. My premise is that the public can secure itself and help the needy with as little effort as simply taking a step forward to do so. Credentials, certifications and other time consuming practices often demotivate citizens and program us to rely upon often arrogant handfuls of professionals.
The simplicity of safety, especially in our uncertain time, says there’s hope that violence and need are within our power to address. I do it daily, alongside super people without badges or titles, except for the Street Patrol names I give them; open minds and big hearts.
That’s all that’s needed to create safety where none may exist.
