Masked Up, Live at Juneteenth 2020 in the Miltown, Wisconsin

WHY AM I HERE? I'm glad you asked...

With due consideration and knowledge of the current state of affairs, locally, nationally and worldwide, I had to do some deep soul searching. Actually, weighty and meaty concern for truer (more authentic and unbiased) social justice has been surfacing in my heart for quite some time, presumably for such a time as this. Can you feel me?

Therefore, I'm posting here to speak of universal truth that resonates with the heart of God, irrespective of institution, doctrine, race, or creed. And let us not forget about our failures to bridge socioeconomic divides, which is that recurring stumbling block, the root cause for various strands of selective amnesia (conveniently failing to recall things that should arouse our conscience), when instead, the common human experience should speak personally to stir our spirit man to action. That's why I'm united with my people, including various ethnic groups on MLK, between Concordia and Ring.

But the cry for freedom, justice, equal opportunity, and equity goes in and out the ears of a majority nation that lacks the conscience or consciousness to consider the voice of one. And instead of instilling and investing in brotherhood, we too often get sidetracked by the allure of diamonds, pursuit of degrees and what is best for me. Yet with the absence or refraction of a unified vision (i.e. solution) and our over reliance on individuality, we fail to realize “the whole [ever being] greater than the sum of the parts” (Gestalt psychology). In other words, the people divided will always be defeated when we fail to admit the ultimate measure of our success is tracked by progression of the entire group and not solely by individual victories.

Again, we digress. So, let me say plainly, I dare not give credit for revelatory insight either to the COVID-19 pandemic or the spotlight moving to highlight police brutality in our sister state.

Certainly, it's no secret that oppresssion, greed and trickery runs in the veins of this, our great America. But we can and should fight for our redemption. So, I'm standing here on MLK to sow some money and love where it is much deserved and needed. It's been far too long since the last time I stepped up at such a time as this. What about you?

KNOW THEM BY THEIR FRUITS

While anyone with a platform and a promise can talk a good game, there's nothing like revealing the person behind the curtain. How does he or she operate? What are his motives? Can I really count on him to take ownership of my concerns and go the distance?

Vicki Dandridge is one of many lives touched in Richmond IZARD's daily walk. Her personal testimony brings out the "I" in IZARD:

"I've been knowing Richmond Izard for many, many years. He's a man with high integrity. He's a man with high morals and values for life and others." "I've had the pleasure of knowing him for many years, and I have watched him operate," says Dandridge in her video testimony about how Richmond blessed her personally.

Richmond IZARD continues to win the trust and confidence of countless men and women like Mrs. Dandridge who say, "Yes, I..."

What a unique and pleasant experience meeting three (3) Boy Scouts who attended tonight's Village Board Meeting with their troop leader, Cassius Henry.

The three teens of Troop 414 in Heart of Milwaukee District attended the public meeting as a means to acquiring certification requirements. However, based upon their commitment and conversation, I suspect the Brown Deer School District 11th grader & two 8th graders learned a lot about leadership opportunities and diversity in the district leadership. That made my day! 😊

Just like Amazon product reviews, your feedback will help empower Brown Deer residents to make an informed decision in the Feb 18th primary and Apr 7th general election.

Your collective reviews will help ensure voters that not only do I have the knowledge and experience, but also the character and right heart to be an excellent 5-star Village Trustee.
