“RACIAL PROFILING & THE CLIMATE OF RACISM STILL LURKS DOING DAMAGE TO OUR COMMUNITIES ACROSS THE US.” (video coming)
The meeting on racial profiling took place on Monday, June 29 from 6-9pm at the Burroughs Sadens Library, in Bridgeport, CT. The people of our community demanded responses to their desperate cries. The community eagerly stood up and spoke their mind concerning situations and issues continuing to plague on African American communities not just in Bridgeport, but across the country following the shooting that took place in South Carolina in the church were Dr. Martin Luther King stood to preach his sermons. This has caused a disturbing uproar. The African American, Jamaican, Hispanic, Haitian people are truly reached a peak and surmounts deep uneasiness of the deaths taking place by police brutality.
Those on the panel gave feedback to the frustrations and concerns of the inner city of Bridgeport and its majority community who are Black and Hispanic were city officials along with Mr. Tisdale, the CT Post, and others. The facilitator was George Mintz who continued to stress change. Others in attendance were the Greater Bridgeport Chapter of the NAACP including the new Youth Chair, Josh Horton, and the all new board which has been re-instated. Being the former Chair of Communications in Bridgeport, and doing a year as Chair of Communications in Stamford myself, and many people in this community are elated to see they’re making a new start with younger members in charge. Also, the Nation of Islam who patiently waited to be given the chance to speak; Charlie Coviello who is running against Mayor Finch in Bridgeport, and many others packed the room on the first floor of the library. DITR-DIAMONDS IN THE ROUGH…TALK 2 ME MEDIA (T2M) had to be present to get footage and coverage on dialogue that’s been long overdue.
However, the question still remains after dialogue and a better level of understanding is exchanged is–what action will be taken to resolve the issues relevant to its community which demands a CHANGE to prevent further acts of violence from police, reforming the Bridgeport school system, and becoming the village we once were as African American people once were?
