Very big winners defense spending and contractors. The House and Senate Republican budgets add $38 billion More in defense spending above the Pentagon a request in fiscal year 2016. Instead of being up front and including it in the regular defense department budget it was added to a catch All War fund not subject to budget Caps. This is a budget gimmick some conservatives have decried As deceptive and fiscally irresponsible. The $38 billion additional defense spending could provide 2.5 million subsidized jobs to poor families with children lifting 1.2 million children from poverty and double the head Start program which serves Only 40 percent of children who need it for one year. The House Republican budget goes much further adding $387 billion in defense spending Between 2017-2025. This amount could lift 60 percent of our children out of poverty for five years. Very big winners very wealthy people.

Very big losers vulnerable children and Low and Middle income families. Under the Guise of balancing the budget and cutting the deficit recklessly unjust massive cuts of More than $3 trillion Over 10 years will undermine lifelines of stability and Hope. The House and Senate Republican budgets will Cut Grams for those who need help most and increase government welfare for those who need help least. Very big losers the millions benefiting from health coverage under the affordable care act medicaid and the children a health insurance program Chip. Both Republican budgets seek to repeal the affordable care act which prohibits discrimination against 129 million children and adults with preexisting health conditions helps More than 5 million uninsured 18-26 year Olds now covered under parental insurance plans and extends coverage for some Foster care youths to age 26. More than 10 million near poor adults in 29 states and the District of Columbia will lose medicaid coverage received under Aca.

Very biggest losers americans future dream and struggle to become a More just nation. Or. Martin Luther King or. Said at new York City a Riverside Church on april 4, 1967 that a we As a nation must undergo a Radical revolution of values. A True revolution of values will soon cause us to question the fairness and Justice of Many of our past and present policies. A True revolution of values will soon look uneasily on the glaring contrast of poverty and wealth. A nation that continues year after year to spend More Money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual a year later or. King was assassinated. At his death he was urgently calling for a poor Peoples Campaign to end poverty in the worlds largest Economy. How disappointed he would be to see us continue to take from the poor to give to the Rich the rising and huge wealth and income inequality gaps the bloated military budgets and 45 million poor americans including 14.7 million poor children in our midst. I Hope every american will break their silence and demand better fairer leadership from these leaders beginning with just treatment of the most vulnerable among us.

A Young sister a Nash tagged me out of my silo re Itti ia1mnf Mai Faity a a a a a a a a a a i by Julianne Malveaux Nipa columnist when a colleague dropped the line a you can to has tag your Way to Freedom a i loved it i laughed out loud and promised that id not borrow the line but steal it because i was so enamoured of it. In be used it quite a few times since then and gotten my share of grins and guffaws. So i used it again and again always getting the same reaction. Imagine my Surprise then when Frenchie Davis 35, the Howard University Alumna who burst onto the music scene with her 2003 turn on a american idol a took me to school by telling me she thought my remark was i did no to mean to be condescending just to make the Point that there is a difference Between Sweeting and fighting for change. Has tags Are not votes. Even if a million people has tagged the hundreds of nigerian Young women abducted by Boko Haram Are still missing. Frenchie Davis thought my glib remark dismissed a form of communication that Young people find effective a form of communication that raises their awareness. She is right to Point out that electronic and social Media is far More consequential today than it was just a decade ago and that her generation relies on social Media More heavily than it does traditional Media. While Many people of my baby Boomer generation use electronic Media we Are not As immersed in it As younger folks Are. Reality Check. The median age of the african american recorded in the 2000 census was 30.4, compared to the National mean of 34.4. As of 2013, the mean age of . Bom Blacks was 29, compared to a National mean of 37. That Means the average african american is closer in age to Frenchie Davis than to me. Members of that generation too often disdained by their elders for their work ethic commitment to civil rights or style of dress Are the ones who will propel the civil rights movement into the future. So sister Frenchie was right to Call me on my Snarky funny remark about has tagging to Freedom. If the has tag takes you to a conversation and that takes you to action then the has tag May be a step in the right direction. My conversation with Frenchie Davis took place when i moderated a panel on a race Justice and change a As part of the Washington . Emancipation Day commemoration. By Way of background the compensated emancipation act of 1862 paid the owners of 3,100 slaves $300 each to emancipate them for the past decade . Commemorates this Day with an official Holiday. The other panellists Malik Yoba Doug e. Fresh and Mali music Are like Davis socially and politically Active artists who Are also concerned with ways to increase involvement in civil rights matters. Mali music 27, was the youngest member of the panel. His comments about Young Black male alienation offered an important perspective in a conversation structured to facing a officer Friendly while Black by Lee a. Daniels Nipa columnist without the video North Charleston . Police officer Michael t. Slager would Likely have gotten away with murder. Without the video we see officer Michael t. Slager have the shall we say presence of mind to quickly retrieve what appears to be his Taser and Plant it beside the lifeless body of Walter Lamar Scott. Without the video officer Michael t. Slager would no doubt have quickly been coached on the techniques of making himself appear in news Media interviews the victim of the lethal encounter with the Black Man he killed 50-year-old Walter Lamar Scott. Without the video the conservative pundit Cracy and talk show jockeys would be raging that the dead Many a action again proved that Black and Brown civilians Are a waging War on police. But we have the video one of the technological innovations that increasingly have helped suggest what people of color face from an alarming number of White cops and the first degree murder indictment of officer Michael t. Slager. And so we Are faced with a Long list of powerful questions Why did Slager pull Over Walter Lamar Scott a vehicle was it really for a broken taillight or was it because Slager feeding off the Power of his badge wanted to show some Black person any Black person who a Boss what then was going through Slager a mind that led him to not give Chase to the unarmed slow footed Scott when he ran but quickly and calmly pull his gun and fire eight times at the fleeing Man i think some part of the answer to these questions and the Many others that must be asked can be found in a recent instance of a police encounter with Black teenagers that did not escalate to violence but was nonetheless revealing. That incident captured on a police car camera occurred in Minneapolis March 18. Four Black teens of somali descent having just finished playing basketball at the Myca were driving Home when they were pulled Over by the police for making a a turn. The police ordered the youths out of the car at gunpoint and handcuffed them while they searched the car and ran background checks on the car to see if it was stolen and on the youths to see if any had criminal records. They found nothing. None of the youths had a criminal record and they were subsequently not charged. But at the beginning of this hour Long ordeal a police camera captured this Exchange Between one of the police officers and one of the youths he was handcuffing a Plain and simple a the officer says a if you profanity with me in a going to break your leg before you get the Chance to the youth responds a i never said i was going to the officer answers Back a a in a just giving you a Heads up. Just trying to be officer Friendly right a can you Tell me a the youth persists a Why in a being arrested the officer responds a because i feel like arresting is that it that some White cops need to show these a a coloured people a White Man can control their Freedom whenever he a feels like it is that the attitude that explains Why officer Michael t. Slager pulled Over the vehicle driven by Walter Lamar Scott in the aftermath of Scott a murder some Black North Charleston residents have said that police constantly racially profile Black Drivers there. Comedian Chris rocks recent social Media posting of his being repeatedly stopped by police while driving near his suburban new Jersey Home suggests that for Black and Brown Drivers that otherwise legitimate police duty remains laced with racist intent. Further we can go Down the Long address voting policing and organizing. Id not heard of the grammy award nominee before which perhaps reveals the generational silo i occupy. In a uncomfortable in my silo. Uncomfortable with How easy it is to join a conversation about generational differences without embracing generational similarities. A Aback in the Day a a phrase i probably should use much less Many of our radio shows or stations were called a the drum a after the drumbeat form of communication. Has tag can rightly be seen As another word for drum. And getting out of my silo its important that drummers or hash taggers both teach and learn. How do we get Young people involved in the civil rights movement Many already Are involved Check them out at . More than conversation this communication has galvanized tens of thousands to stay focused on continued police violence and the attacks on Black life. The has tag has connected people planning marches and protests. That a involvement. Are we insisting that Young people be involved in the movement As we know it new organizations and movements Are emerging and some younger folks wont embrace or engage in organizations they consider irrelevant. Has anyone marketed the contemporary civil rights movement to younger african americans do we feel that we need to do we expect people to show up where and Roll their sleeves up task undefined How do we get Young people involved ask them. Sit Back and listen really listen to their reply. And understand that there Are some not so Young who May also need a nudge to get involved. I am energized enlightened and privileged when i am pushed out of my silo. I am grateful to Frenchie Davis Malik Yoba Mali music and Doug e. Fresh for helping me connect the Drums with the has tags. The generational conversation is engaging frustrating and effervescent. It is an essential part of our movement for social and economic justices and its Many definitions and experiences. Julianne Malveaux is a Washington based writer and economist. She can be reached at . Long list of just recent controversial White cop Black or Brown civilian encounters and ask is that Why so Many of them have a palpable undertone of menace is it because the White cops Are acting on their a feelings a a final question How often does a Black or Brown persons Chance of surviving an encounter with a White cops come Down to whether that officer or those officers have decided to be or not be a officer Friendly at that moment to put that another Way How often does it come Down to whether the police officer or officers have decided at that moment to be a Public servant of integrity or a criminal Lee a.
