About The UPstander's Podcast with Dr. Omekongo

An UPstander is someone who sees something and takes a stand. Here we will explore issues relating to social justice. Some posts will be motivational, some educational. Some times I may drop a rhyme or poem! The goal is to share stories and opinions that help us build a human family. Share your thoughts and share with others!

    Les Brown said "If you wanna keep getting what you're getting, keep doing what you're doing." What did you do today in pursuit of your goals. Are you working towards your dream or slowly moving away from your dream? Do you still have a dream? Wherever you fall on this spectrum, you and I both know that you can spend more time investing in yourself and your message and mission in life. Stop building up others at the expense of yourself. Start now!

    As we have seen in this past election, our politicians are bent on highlighting what is negative about their opponents. They have forgotten how to compromise and bring out their collective good. You don't have to be like them! When you meet someone, do you first think of reasons why you can't get along or do you think first of your commonalities? I have learned in life that your relationships are prone to be more productive if you approach situations with trust before suspicion. It doesn't mean that you walk blindly into a situation, but it means that you should approach people from the perspective of what you can first build instead of thinking what you can do to tear one another down.

I support Kaepernick 100% but I believe that he can no longer be the litmus test for how black people move forward with the NFL. JAY Z's activism has earned him the benefit of the doubt. Let's see what happens!

[summary] =>

    The media is still killing Nipsey Hussle in two ways: 1) by painting his murder as only a gang issue as opposed to tying it to America's greater gun violence problem and 2) the continual airing of the killing of black people, which does not happen other people are murdered, like the white journalist who was murdered on air. TV networks said they didn't want to air it out of respect for the journalist's family but killings of black people stay on loop from Eric Garner to Nipsey. It's just wrong. We shouldn't be able to make playlists of black murder.

    We have spent the past few days shouting at each other about racism that we forgot how to talk to each other.

    Less than 2 hours after Rep. Ilhan Omar made her controversial comments, she apologized. It seems like every politician called for her to apologize or have bigger consequences but they continually allow President Trump, Reps. Steve King & McCarthy, and so many others to continually be made without being forced to apologize. Omar apologized and brings up real issues relating to lobbying. I believe she will help to build bridges and not divide as many republican leaders are doing.

    Happy 2013! Now is not the time for resolutions! Now is the time to focus on your entire life and be grateful that you have made it 2013. If you focus on being grateful that you've made it this far, you should immediately proceed with an attitude of gratitude. Resolutions are made to broken! Life is for the living and that is what I discuss in this video. Happy 2013!

    All of this talk about the fiscal cliff is driving me crazy! The media is working hard to keep us all in fear. It is truly quite tragic. You should focus on the things in life that YOU can control. Is your relationship with your mate or family falling off a cliff? Is your health falling off a cliff? Go into the new year focused on the real positive changes you can make in your life and leave the fear tactics to the media and politicians!
