Midterm Election Day is November 8, 2022: Please Vote by this Day to Make your Voice Heard


Several days ago, I submitted my ballot by mail. It was simple and easy for me. My faith and trust are in the recipients of my ballot, with hope that my votes are counted and properly recorded. My guess is that many potential voters are still undecided as to who to vote for, which political party to choose and so forth. The choice is up to you. Nevertheless, for several of you who are still straddling the fence, the following ‘Vote Tracker’ may help you with your decisions. The Tracker reflects the results of how Republican members of the 117th Congress in the House of Representatives in 2021 to 2022 voted against many important subjects.

A Domestic Terrorist Attacks Grocery Shoppers in Buffalo, New York

May 18, 2022

On Saturday, May 14, 2022, a domestic terrorist opened fire on grocery shoppers and employees at a popular grocery store in Buffalo, New York. Investigators reported that the lone gunman targeted the location because the community is predominantly African American.

New policies and new laws to deter and to battle hate crimes, hate groups, hateful individuals, racially motivated crimes, and unregulated social media platforms in America (and beyond) will be very late in the country’s history but much needed at this moment in order for the world to create and capture value for all of the nations’ citizens; that is, to transition from its violent past and present to a country/planet of peace, collaboration, partnerships, whereby all human beings shall not have to live in fear of imminent death because of the colors of their skin.

Yesterday, a staff member of the non-profit ‘’ informed me that by sending in our contact information via their email address, a reply will include the safest way that we may send in a gift in kind and or another way to support the surviving family members of the domestic terrorist attack. Their email address is

On a personal note, I will be making a financial donation in two days, on my next payday.

January 17th is a National Holiday in Remembrance of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.


Tomorrow, in North America, including individuals worldwide, Americans will honor a civil rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Through acts of non-violence, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. gave numerous speeches; led marches, sit-ins, boycotts and so much more to help end racial segregation and to help end racially motivated mob violence in North America. In addition, Dr. King led numerous civil rights leaders and volunteers who were comprised of many ethnicities, all of whom strove to attain important legislation; a goal to secure voting rights, equal employment rights, other human and civil rights, including protections against racially motivated mob violence. Because of the color of one’s skin; that is, black or brown, and specifically, if the brown or black skin person(s) had his or her ethnic roots in the geographically massive continent of Africa— a multi-cultural, natural resource rich continent–many individuals and groups of white people, including their “enablers” (quotations mine), those who had political power, economic power, and hate were against full racial integration of all sectors of American society; that is, they were supporting segregation, voter suppression, racially motivated mob violence, and much more negativity.

In remembrance of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, and in honor of his Dream & Legacy, we can become involved in tomorrow’s day of action by going here (Click here).

In 2022, we are observing that the majority of members of the Republican Senate, along with two Democratic Senators [Senator Kyrsten Sinema (AZ) and Senator Joe Manchin (WV) —enablers], have NOT been in support of legislation that will protect voting rights for Black and Brown skin Americans. The ending of the filibuster is a major issue, as well. Let’s continue to observe the decisions that are being made by people in power. Are our politicians truly representing all of their constituents? Are they making morally correct decisions? Are they making political decisions based upon who and which organizations are sending them money? How much money? Why have the Republican Party and its enablers been involved in changing the voting maps in numerous states, weakening the voting power of minority districts, and continuously trying to make it difficult for Black and Brown skin people to vote? It appears that the majority of Republicans and their enablers are segregationists at heart, while the majority of Democrats are non-segregationist at heart. We certainly reside in a divided country based upon what we believe is right.

Clearly, there is much we can do as concerned citizens to transform our current situations into a land of integration and peace. One of the many recommendations that is shared by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) that I support is the immediate need for the enactment of the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act.

P.S. Recently, I’ve been utilizing the software program, Grammarly, to help me with my writing. So far, Grammarly has been a big help but I still must double-check the changes for possible “incongruencies” (an extra letter or two where it should not be). Nevertheless, most incongruencies (need for clarification and more errors) come from me. My apologies go out to you, the reader, for potentially suffering through some of my writing. The need for more proofreading by me is never too much to ask of myself. Please be patient with me, and thank you for reading my posts.

As Public Servants, U.S.A. Senators have Important Responsibilities

November 14, 2021

Are U.S.A. Senators protecting the voting rights of all citizens? Well, a concerned group of civil rights organizations had recently evaluated the crucial votes of each U.S.A. Senator, and effectively graded their efforts to protect our democracy. Thus, ‘The Civil Rights Scorecard’ was created by the coalition of civil rights organizations, to inform the world about each Senators’ performance, based upon their level of support for the following:

  • The John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act
  • The For the People Act
  • The Senators’ efforts to eliminate the filibuster

All three have clear effects upon voters in 2022 and thereafter, according to the coalition of civil rights organizations. To observe the score that your Senator received, please go here: Civil Rights Scorecard

‘The Civil Rights Coalition’ is comprised of the NAACP, The National Urban League, The National Action Network (NAN), Fighting For Our Vote, ‘NCNW: Commitment, Unity, Self Reliance’, The National Coalition On Black Participation, and HIT Strategies.

Louisiana Black Veterans Fight to Keep Building

November 13, 2021

Two days ago, on November 11th, the U.S.A. celebrated a federal holiday that occurs every year, which honors military veterans who have served in the United States military forces; Namely, the soldiers and support staff who in the past and present have served in the United States Military, domestically, and or in foreign regions around the globe.

Further, a special thank-you goes out to all of the women and men, within the U.S. Military Forces (past and present), who have honorably served in the United States Armed Forces.

In 2021, sadly, there are U.S.A Veterans who are not being respected. Louisiana Black Veterans are currently fighting to keep a building that has honored their sacrifices for the past several decades.

Clearly, a special thank-you goes out to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), who had shared this important story with me. The following report was selected and written by an Investigative Journalist, Mr. Dwayne Fatherree. Please read the full story here: U.S.A. Veterans

Verdict Reached in Minnesota Murder Trial


I am very relieved to learn that the former Minnesota Police Officer, Derek Chauvin, was found guilty by the jury of all counts against him for the murder of Mr. George Floyd. It was in May of 2020, when Mr. Floyd died as a result of Chauvin having placed his knee on Mr. Floyd’s neck, while George pleaded to the officer that he could not breathe. “I can’t breathe”, Mr. Floyd pleaded while handcuffed behind his back, forced to lay face down on the pavement, with the force of Chauvins’ knee on his neck. Mr. Floyd was apprehended outside of a small convenience store, where he was alleged to have attempted to use a counterfeit twenty-dollar bill to make a small purchase.

Accountability was attained by the guilty verdicts handed down by the Jurors against Chauvin, all three verdicts; namely, second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter.

Further, in a Just society Mr. Floyd would be alive today, and in a perfect society Chauvin and Floyd would be friends. Would not the outcome have been positive on that day in May, if each responding officer had approached the store owner and clerks with a $20 dollar bill each from their wallets, after paying for whatever Mr. Floyd had wished to purchase? Then, requiring Mr. Floyd to work off the good deed by working part-time or full-time for their department in some capacity? Minnesota is known for having a large and beautiful park system. Mr. Floyd was a potential co-worker and a potential friend to the police department of Minnesota, as he was already a loved family member and a friend to so many folks outside the department.

In addition, my belief is that the intensive work by community organizers and by the many activist’s throughout America and the World, who protested in the streets and within social media, helped to keep everyone focused on the important issues faced by Minnesota, by all states and by numerous global regions. These issues, to name a few, are police violence against Black, Brown, and other marginalized members of society; the need for police reform, the need for affordable housing, affordable schools, improved infrastructure, more manufacturing plants in North America that not only benefit suburban and rural communities but more businesses that shall benefit communities that are Brown, Black, Indigenous, Asian–all folks.

Sadly, we are observing ongoing threats against voting rights in this country in the form of voter suppression efforts, newly proposed bills, and newly proposed legislation. All of which are creating a more difficult pathway to equality, peace, and justice for all in this country.

Nevertheless, I shall continue to support our communities as best as I can. As early as in the 1950’s and certainly in the early 1960’s, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. had stated or asked, ‘Where Do We Go from Here: Chaos or Community?’, which is the title of one of Dr. King’s several books. Chaos is not good. Even more, I shall continue to write as much as possible to support the work of our communities with my dream for justice, accountability, equanimity, and love in the world to become the norm.

Love, Peace, and Togetherness to the George Floyd Family,

The State of Georgia Representative, Ms. Park Cannon, was Arrested at the Georgia State Capitol Building, yesterday.

March 26, 2021

State Representative Park Cannon was arrested yesterday while knocking on the office door of Georgia Governor Brian Kemp. Representative Cannon was not given permission to enter the office, where several men were observing the Governor, as the Governor signed into Law, SB202, that will make the process of voting in future elections to be a very difficult process for many Georgians. Many African-American voters and other marginalized communities of voters are expected to suffer the most. In a Nation that is comprised of many cultures and colors of people, there has been a wave of new, potential laws that many members of the Republican Party are attempting to pass, which are laws that are designed to make voting a hardship and a difficult to nearly impossible task to complete. SB202 is one such Law. Instead of attempting to earn the vote of all Americans, many members of the Republican Party and its enablers have been attempting to, and are ongoingly attempting to prevent many voters of color and others from easily casting their votes in the near future. The Stellar i Observer (SiO) is outraged by the obvious voter suppression activities that one sees in the state of Georgia and many voter suppression activities have been observed to be moving like a tidal wave across North America, and according to reports out of Washington, D.C., the Voter Suppression movement has been engineered by the Republican Party and its enablers. My question’s are several:

  1. Where is the outrage?
  2. Who were the men that were photographed yesterday, standing alongside Georgia Governor Kemp, as Kemp was signing the Voter Suppression Law?

The reason why I ask is due to the fact that the men must be connected to a University, a Corporation, a Sports Team, and or at least one organization where persons of color (Brown, Black, Indigenous, Asian, etc) attend the school, work at the corporation, play on the sports team, etc. The passing of restrictive voting laws adversely effects the livelihood of minority voters, and diminishes their voting rights in Georgia.

In the state of Georgia and within all states across America, let’s hope that we soon hear from the many Superintendent’s, President’s, CEO’s, Business & Civic Leaders of (Walmart, Amazon, Microsoft, Home Depot, McDonalds, Hospital’s, and more), who may all clearly and hopefully say that we do not support these new restrictive voting laws that make voting very difficult for the families of our students, employee’s, co-worker’s, etc.—whose skin color is brown, black, etc., all who want to easily be able to cast their individual vote for candidates who are caring, ethical, honest, trustworthy, and deserving of their vote; Namely, a candidate(s) who is effective and sincere enough to safeguard as well as to help improve the lives of all Georgians, of all Americans, not just a chosen few. That type of candidate will win more votes. SiO says, “Earn their vote, don’t suppress it”.

SiO Stands with the Asian Communities


The Stellar i Observer (SiO) stands with the Asian-American community in protest of the recent and apparent ongoing, violent, deadly attacks, perpetrated by people filled with hate. In recent days and months, many young and elderly Asian-American’s have become victims of racially motivated crimes. The crimes are physical attacks that have been occurring in many parts of North America–on the west coast, in the northeast, and in the south. Several attacks have led to death. In recent days, one street protestor held up a sign that read, “Hate is a Virus”. In agreement, my belief is that many resources (in Trillions of dollars) and many personnel (both governmental & non-governmental) must be utilized to prevent hate and to fight hate when it appears within all of our communities–Asian; Jewish, Latino, White, and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color). The battle against hate must be fought in every region of the Globe, until hate is fully quarantined and then eradicated from this planet.
