Imagine a future scenario in Houston, Texas.

Twelve-year-old Rick arrives home, breathless. “Mom, people are evacuating. The hurricane will be worse than Harvey.”

“You sure, Rick? Your father’s boss gets PanasonicWeather Channel. It’ll just be a tropical storm by the time it reaches us.”

“My friend says it’s all over the news on AccuWeather Channel.”

“Don!” Sarah calls out to her husband, tinkering in the garage. “We’ve gotta evacuate.”

Don emerges from the garage, wiping grease from his hands. “Where did you hear that?”

“I told you we should’ve signed up for AccuWeather.” Sarah glared at her husband. “Your stupid Sports Channel is all that matters.” She turned to Rick. “Get your sister. We’re going to your aunt in Austin.”

Mainstream Media, Politics and Law Enforcement – By Yvonne Sam

Mainstream Media, Politics and Law Enforcement

By Yvonne Sam

This comparison of the sexual victims of two men of means, is in no way meant to disparage or deprecate their experience, but to show instead in black and white how two similar situations are treated not only  by society in general, but by law enforcement and the news media.

Guyana Diaspora: Friendly Performance Art- By Verian Mentis-Barker

Guyana Diaspora Friendly performance Art

Wearing his signature casual fare, shirt sans neck tie, unbuttoned blazer with maybe matching trousers, President Granger delivered his Diaspora speech in predictable fashion; the usual buzz words, the reminder of a victory snatched, wending its way through some accomplishments then on to the crescendo with the call for Diaspora Engagement…this time with an attractively alliterative assembly of B’s“We don’t need more barrels, we need brains”, set to the chants and applause of a select list of invitees, all of a specific partisan persuasion, then neatly tucked under a news headline in the national news paper touting the President’s Diaspora Engagement.
