The Los Angels Time and the Proper Noun Black-Americans

Several articles in the Los Angeles Times have used the word “black” in reference to a race. When referencing race, it is a proper noun “Black”. Birth Certificates say that race is “Black” is makes it a proper noun. I noticed that the words African-American are shown as proper nouns, I am not African, I am a Black-American.

Literally I am not African, and going by my Birth Certificate and not my sister’s, I am “Negro-American”.

Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting: By  Tres Mali Scott

President Chavez’s hostility toward journalist makes me pray that he does not get paranoid, since he puts TV stations out of business and does not allow media that “he” criticized for involvement in the opposition movement against him.

The problem is international, the US  has the highest rate among industrialized countries of individuals “living with AIDS” (Scott, 2008). The better health care the longer individuals live (Scott, 2008).

The Amazonian jungles are located in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, which is bordering to Brazil and considered Latin America. President Hugo Chavez is a left-wing former army officer. As President, he has survived since 1998. Help the world survive!!!!!

Socialism is not American, it does not allow improvement. I pray that Hugo Chavez finds ways to include improvement, education, medical treatment, and employment opportunities. Much of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela lives in poverty. “Sex tourism” comes from deeply divided and largely impoverished areas (Scott, 2008).

President Chavez has the ability financially to assist in reducing the AIDS problem. Other countries do  have different the values that the USA has, I hope values “human life” as much as he does the world’s largest oil deposits, large quantities of coal, iron ore, bauxite, gold,petroleum, steel, chemicals, agricultural products, and basic manufactures which are his main exports (BBC, 2008).

The USA sees President Chavez as a security threat, being hostile toward journalist tells about treatment of people. The BBC News Reports his leadership is Cuban-style, a major concern!

The Caribbean, Americans and HIV/AIDS

Crisis Reporting by Tres Mali ScottTitle endorsed in part by: on Crisis Reporting by Tres Mali Scott This is a 3rd Place Pulitzer Center Citizen Journalist Award Winning Article (3/2008)

The Caribbean, Dominican Republic, and Haiti receive US dollars to help fight AIDS. These countries have "sex tourism". The US President’s Emergency Plan (Bush) (PEPFAR) for AIDS relief spent $6.4 million, on HIV/AIDS & The Caribbeanindividuals that condemn sex work $55 million in US dollars from PEPFAR flowed into organizations and agencies in Haiti. Critics state the pledge to condemn sex work reduces aid to those most at risk.

The rates of infection are dropping, Dr. Jean Pape (2007) states two reasons in the decrease in HIV infection from 8% to 2%:

  1. Promoting Condoms
  2. Screening for other sexually transmitted diseases

Many cases come from rape of young girls and adolescents. Sex tourism comes from deeply divided and largely improvised areas.

These sex workers service the penitentiary for less than $5.00 and tourist for about $85.00. In these penitentiaries AIDS is undetected or untreated. Infectious illnesses and deaths are not tracked for public health like the US, including AIDS. The data is difficult to get.

The problem is international, the US has the highest rated among industrialized counties of individuals The better health care the longer individuals live.
>


Young people are offered some programs to socialize. Many of them were sex workers. Once they contract HIV agencies and organizations like The Movement of United Women (Movimiento de Mujeres Unido) and International Harm Reduction Association assist them. They may return home.

Amon Parker: Entertainment Agent

Amon Parker, white trucks & Gold courses—–Inglewood, California.

Cousins and friends. When you are 17 years old, young and free, you never think you could die. One day me and Amon woke up and Phaedra L. Battle was dead.

“What do I want to be when I grow up?” That is the way to phrase it. We both went away to college, I went to Langston University in Oklahoma and he went to UC Davis in Northern California.

Amon became an agent for the WNBA and Motown Records, “Big Time.”

He died in a motor cycle accident. I am grateful I had an opportunity to know my cousin. When we were growing up, my uncle, his father, was in the military. We did not get to see each other that often, they were in Germany.

After we graduated from High School and before going away to colleg we got to “kick it”. Westwood was great!!!!!

A Black American Experience: Appreciation

When I was 17 years old, the year after I graduated from High School, my Best Friend died in a car accident. She was accepted to Linfield University in Oregon. It graduates the top 10 percent of the students that attend Medical School. She was a 4.12 Catholic School Graduate (Honor Classes). Phaedra L. Battle.

The night before she died, she had just returned from college for Christmas Break. I was i in my pajamas, she came and picked me up. We went to the top  of a mountain that we climbed prom night. She told me that, she know I am a good friend and she loved me for that.

The next night we were going out with my cousin Amon Parker. Shed died in a car accident before she picked us up. Two cars were racing down the street and ran the light.

She taught me to tell people I appreciated and love them before they are gone. My Mother, Dr. Jacqueline D. Parker-Scott, MBA calls it, “Enjoying every minute while you have it.”

I was married, most of the people I know, know my ex-husband. Most choose to talk to him because he is a TV and Radio Personality in Oklahoma.

I changed my career from working with “at risk” youth, school counseling, and management to writing.

Now that I am Internationally Awarded in writing, I have talked with some of them. The other awards I obtained are Professional International Awards.

Because I understand the importance of appreciation, I told everyone I love them, many of us have gone through a lot together, during our younger years many people died, “We are Alive!!!!!”

I may not see many of them, writing takes up most of my time, but I made sure they all know I appreciate all the great times.

I am now, multi-published and Internationally Awarded and Recognized in Poetry. I also have a second place Pulitzer Center Citizen Journalism Award.
