Office of the District Attorney : The Most Important Race You Haven’t Heard Of…

By Ken Gulley

How We Got Here

In their never-ceasing efforts to “fundamentally transform America,” Democrats have employed various means to achieve their goals.

In the recent past, when Liberalism still proudly existed among Democrats, ideas were passed through the legislative process as an outcome of the dutifully elected in our Constitutional Republic.

When these ideas turned to take on a more dogmatic form, absent of statistical and factual basis, they readily employed “judicial activism” in an attempt to legislate from the bench the ideas the values they could not pass in the chambers.

Judicial activism has not gone away and it wont any time soon but with hundreds of conservative (read: Originalist-style) federal Judges put in place by the Trump Administration, they’ll find themselves losing more battles than they win.

Where We Are Now

In steps the District Attorney. Whether it is the County or State Government position, the majority of public prosecutors are elected by the general public through a simple majority vote. Only four states appoint their prosecutors.

As they did with Judges, Leftists have activated their ideologically-friendly DA’s to usurp the authority of lawmakers by failing to laws the people (through the legislature) have enacted or by over-indulging and exaggerating the elements of laws to meet their political end.

The AG is the Federal DA

You’ve seen that a multitude of times in the City of Portland, their so-called “top cop” simply refusing to prosecute crimes and thereby promoting Leftist violence. DA Schmidts policies are directly responsible for the death of Aaron Danielson by an Antifa extremist in August.

While we focus on Portland, an image of Kamala Harris’ America – fast forwarded into the future, similar issues exist elsewhere. Consider San Francisco where burglaries go unpunished and have become so frequent they’re almost ignored. Un-ironically, Inside Edition filmed a burglary in broad daylight while filming a segment on burglaries.

Of course, you’re probably already aware of the other type of activist DA that openly targeted law enforcement in a sort of twisted version or revenger against past perceived injustices. Thankfully, in the case of Baltimore’s Mosby, police fought back.

Mosby

DAs like this that fail to do their job – or openly attack police and politicize their work for their own personal gain – don’t only embolden criminals, they endanger police and the public, they encourage vigilanteism, and the discourage good proactive police investigations. After-all, why spend hours trying if its all for not?

The Heritage Foundation’s Charles Stimson and Zack Smith are covering the issue of “rogue” DA’s in a recent article. They wrote,

By refusing to hold criminals to account, Krasner and his ilk abuse the power of their offices and harm victims and their communities as a result…A straight line can often be drawn from their anti-cop attitudes and their radically dangerous policies to increases in violent crime. And in Krasner’s case, even to the death of a Philadelphia police officer.

While I echo the sentiments regard the dangers of their conduct, we on the Right need to actively engage in countering this assault on our communities. Further, we need to empower the communities themselves (especially the victims of this activism) to force DAs to be responsible for the resulting byproduct of their failures.

While it is easy to point to the ballot box and wait for election day, it is not always easy to delineate the office and person from the product. Afterall, isn’t it a prosecutors job to prosecute?

A Call to Action

“The prosecutor exercises the greatest discretion and power in the system. It is so important,” said Andrea Dew Steele, president of Emerge America, a candidate-training organization for Democratic women. “There’s been a confluence of events in the past couple years and all of the sudden, the progressive community is waking up to this.”

Masked in the undercurrent of verbose language, PAC money promising to promote “social justice”, “criminal justice reform”, and “racial justice equality” against so-called “systemic” issues, powerfully funded ideological groups have thrown millions of dollars at local prosecutor races.

Sith Lord Soros

While it’s somewhat obnoxious to pull out the names of dark nefarious sounding figures such as George Soros, the billionaire is in fact lurking in the background of many of these super PACs and social-justice based non-profits that supposedly promote racial justice.

From Philadelphia to San Francisco, everywhere Soros’ has gone, chaos has followed. This isn’t conspiracy theory material, it is the truth. Now his eye is set on the grandest prize, Los Angeles.

Lace Up Your Boots

America’s most populous County, Los Angeles boasts the largest District Attorney’s Office in the USA.

Already a liberal bastion, Los Angeles’ current DA, Jackie Lacey (D) has been a valiant stalwart against the hyper-partisan Progressive onslaught against police.

Jackie Lacey

Despite being a black female Democrat, Soros’ money groups have targeted Lacey as “not progressive enough.” So Soros has pulled out his big gun and ushered George Gascon to the call.

Quite literally. Like a game of Dominoes, Soros called Gascon to quit the San Francisco DA position. Already warmed up for a new radical to take power, Soros’ orders set-up Gascon to challenge Jackie Lacey in Los Angeles. And with a flick of his wallet, Soros’ plan fell in order.

The Architect of Proposition 47 & 57, two landmark laws that flipped California’s crime upside down, Gascon is a former LAPD officer and more importantly, former San Francisco DA.

Together Prop 47/57 promised to better fund education and decrease jail over-crowding but instead they have created chaos on the streets. Re-writing certain crimes and punishment for said crimes, the same person could steal $949 worth of product from the same store 3 days in a row and only receive a ticket (order to appear in court) for his misdemeanor. In other areas, some crimes have been re-defined to be listed official as “non-violent” including date rape. Yes, rape, hostage taking, human trafficking and more!

Lacey is currently struggling to keep up with funding for the race. Where Lacey is backed by countless of Law Enforcement Associations around the state (given the gravity of her office), Gascon is funded by Soros himself, then other billionaires like Reed Hastings (money champion for Critical Race Theory heroes), Patty Quillin and many Hollywood elites.

If you don’t think Soros’ DAs are extreme enough, consider who is currently sitting in office in San Francisco. Chesa Boudin.

Boudin served as a translator for Venezuelan Socialist-Dictator, Hugo Chavez. His parents were Weather Underground terrorists arrested for murder, later adopted by other members including Bill Ayers, and grandfather was a Marxist who was Fidel Castro’s attorney… Red flags? Yeah a few.

The Los Angeles District Attorney’s Officer race between Lacey and Gascon is the most important race you have never heard of among the most importance races you’ve never heard.

While I cannot vouch for all of the policies touted by Democrats, this one of of the rare few times I am going to implore you to vote Democrat – a sane Democrat – in Jackie Lacey. Sadly, this message particular part of the message is strictly for Los Angelenos. If you know any, please share this article to them or at least warn them of the danger that lurks with Gascon at the helm.

Why Cant they Get it Right?

By Ken Gulley

Of late, Democrats have had an incredible Ability to distort the meaning and understanding of what Rights are.

From a philosophical standpoint to a legal disposition, Democrats have notoriously abused the idea of ”Rights” for political gain.

“Healthcare is a fundamental basic human right.” – BS

Consider the often quoted Bernie Sander quip of ”Healthcare is a fundamental human right.” The quip is a multifaceted distortion in that his meaning of ”Healthcare” is more correctly labeled – ”government funded health insurance.”

While you may have a right to care for yourself and your health, you do not posses a Right to health insurance. You do not have a right to someone’s skills as a clinician producing goods and services but you are more than welcome to purchase these things with risks and factors weighed.

Unlike Conservatives, Democrats believe Rights are both evolutionarily progressive and granted.

Whereas a Conservative understands that Rights are God-given (or from Nature / Natural) and must be guaranteed (read – protected) by Government; Democrats dictate that Right are given to the people by Government – making them items that can be added (as government expands) and stripped away (as government desires). This effectively makes government “God-like” for the Left. In the same vain, this deification of Government is why the Left pushes so hard to force their own version of Morality upon the populace

This understanding of differences helps us understand the above extended dialogue between Senator Rubin and Amy Barrett.

Senator Rubin and The Honorable Mrs. Barrett

Lets start by ignoring Rubin’s preface.

Sorry, lets not ignore it. Rubin, in so may words, called Barrett an ignorant pawn of Trump’s devices. He was underhanded and rude and even made a pitched attack at the President by stating Barrett’s appointment was an, “Orange cloud” over the proceedings.

These quips dictate Rubin’s arrogant attitude moving forward and thankfully leads him into an overconfident exchange with Barrett that exposed himself as completely “in over his head.”

As Senator Rubin dictated Barrett’s owns words to her, take notice of how he willfully misconstrued Barrett’s argument as a preference of Rights rather than a distinction of Rights.

Rubin intentionally mis-frames Barrett’s ruling in an effort to suggest she has a bias in favor of certain Rights we consider to be sacred in the US. The Right to Bear Arms and the Right to Vote.

Rubin doesn’t just pull this ruling out if a random hat. The anecdote was a strategic move to suggest Trump’s nominee was as “anti-Democratic” as he is, suggesting Trump and his hopeful associate Supreme Court Justice would be willing to suppress, dismiss, and toss out certain Rights while favoring others. Media understood the headline pitch made by Rubin and was quick to pick up, suggesting Barrett wanted Felons to have guns but not vote.

Much in the same way the media has falsely framed the GOPs apprehension about mass mail-in voting, Rubin’s framing of this ruling (juxtaposed to Barrett’s understanding of Voting Rights) was malicious and inaccurate. Most importantly, it was based in ignorance.

As the exchange continued, Barrett responded by educating Senator Rubin with tactful wisdom.

Barrett cleverly cuts through the political theater and completely nailed the gaping fallacy (a de facto Straw-Man) in Rubin’s argument.

Barrett clarifies her understanding of the most important aspect of the case – the precedent – not the bias Rubin openly displayed in his description of the plaintiff.

Barrett isolated the issue of Gun Rights as those classified under “Individual Rights” and Voting as classified under “Civic Duty Rights.”

In her clarifying response, Barrett dictated the importance of both Rights but notes how there is Constitutional (State and Federal) precedent for limitations on Civic Duty Rights like Voting but there are no equal precedents for limitations on Individual Rights.

In the case being heard, Barrett ruled that the plaintiff should have the ability to practice his 2nd Amendment Right to Bear Arms in spite of his Felony record – ruling in his favor specifically because his Felony (Fraud crimes) was not violent in nature and the plaintiff had already served his sentence.

Rubin repeatedly returned Barrett’s response, alleging that she effectively declared the Right of Vote as lesser or secondary Right compared to the Right to Bear Arms. In response, Barrett stuck to her guns (pun intended) and repeatedly educated Rubin on the focus of the case surrounding precedent and the conflict of opinions between Individual and Civic Rights.

If Barrett would have allowed herself to follow Rubin down a rabbit hole regarding the priorities of Rights, Democrats and media (sorry I know that is redundant) would have had a field day. But I am not Amy Barrett and I have no issue prioritizing these Rights.

Basic building blockd

The Right to Vote is neither Natural nor fundamental. This is not to say it isn’t important, rather, it’s not critical to the Liberties of an individual to live and prosper peacefully. What do I mean? Well, consider this thought exercise – What 5 Rights would you value most if the government was say, an Authoritarian-Monarchy? For me: Religion, Speech, Privacy, Property and Arms. With these, I would have Liberty in spite of the Authoritarianism and in return, the ability to beat back the Authoritarians in due times

Try living and prospering peacefully with the Right to Vote, Right to Health Care, Right to Housing, Right to Healthy Food, and the Right to Protest. All of these were Rights in the USSR (to some degree) and that didn’t turn out to well.

The Right to Vote is absolutely essential and critical to our Western

Republican-Democratic system and ideology. That given, the Right to Vote, still, is secondary to the Rights spelled out in the Bill of Rights which are intentionally inline with true basic Fundamental Human Rights. The Right to Vote is dependent on the type and authority of Government. For us, it is an engrained necessity but doesn’t make it Universal nor fundamental.

Be wary of those who run campaigns and declare their promises to be “Fundamental Human Rights.” If you lack them now and still live in freedom and prosperity, it’s was never fundamental but rather a luxury disguised and pitched as a need.

The Ultimate Objective Top 10 Movies of All-Time List and You’re a Racist if You Disagree

By Joshua Weigert
October 17th, 2020

As the title suggests, this is the ultimate top 10 movie list of all time. It is scientifically proven that this list is objective truth, similar to the scientific proof that a boy can be a girl and a girl be a boy. A lot of careful thought and mathematical calculations were put into the creation of this list.

*Be advised that the thoughts and opinions presented on this movie list is that of the writer alone and does not represent the opinions of PROOF Blog as a whole. *

10. Inception (2010)

Christopher Nolan. Does anything else need to be said? Nolan has a habit of creating beautiful and thought-provoking films that keep your eyes glued to the screen. This particular film blew my mind when teenager Joshua first watched it. The concept of controlling dreams and dreams within dreams within dreams was wild to me. Leanardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tom Hardy, and Cillian Murphy are only a few of the stellar cast in this film. If you haven’t seen it yet, what the heck are you waiting for?

9. Jurassic Park (1993)

Dinosaurs. Lots and lots of dinosaurs.

This Steven Speilberg film centered around a dinosaur island park that experiences some, uh, issues. The visual effects, story, and moral arguments about life makes this film one of the most universally loved films of all time. The movie score is also fantastic.

8. Schindler’s List (1993)

Another Steven Spielberg film makes this objective and scientifically proven top 10 list. This film centers around Oskar Schindler, a German businessman/industrialist during 1940’s Nazi Germany. Although initially motivated by profit, Schindler gradually becomes more and more concerned for his Jewish workforce’s well-being. This film stars Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, and Ben Kingsley, who all put in stellar acting performances in this masterclass of a movie.

7. 1917 (2019)

This WWI film changed the game when director Sam Mendes and cinematographer Roger Deakins decided to film this movie looking like a single continuous take. The style puts you in the trenches with two soldiers trying to get a message to the commander of a battalion several miles away, calling off a planned attack that would surely get the entire company killed. The acting from the two relatively unknown actors was superb, and the soundtrack was excellent. Go check this film out if you haven’t already.

6. Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)

do dodo do, do dodo, do do dodoooo do do do do do.

This film, another from Spielberg, was every guy’s dream. What’s not to love about exploring rough lands, fighting Nazi’s, searching for ancient secrets, and getting the beautiful girl? This film’s charm led to 3 other Indiana Jones films, although all but 1 (Indiana Joens and the Last Crusade) could not measure up to the original movie in the series. There’s not much more I can say about it besides it’s incredible.

5. Forrest Gump (1994)

” Life is like a box of chocolates…you never know what you’re gonna get.”

Truer words have never been spoken, Mr. Gump. This film centers around a mentally disabled man named Forrest and his life story. Although disabled, Forrest was able to join the army, become a ping pong champion, start his own business, become a multimillionaire, run across America, and invest in an up and coming fruit company named Apple. What’s your excuse?

4. Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)

All three films in the series are phenomenal. However, the first film is the best. The story has orcs, magic, elves, sword fighting, and scary zombie guys. Don’t be discouraged, ladies; it also has some sweet gold jewelry! The movie’s score alone makes it an instant top 10, while the stellar cast and visuals bring the viewer into the land of Middle Earth.

3. The Prestige (2006)

Did you think I was only going to add one Christopher Nolan film to this? HA!
Nolan’s best work, the Prestige centers around two competing magicians as they try to one-up the other. There is obviously a lot more to the story, but I’m not trying to get into spoilers, just in case you haven’t watched it. The storytelling and acting is the top echelon of film making. The film actually gets better and better the more you watch it, as you notice something new every time. I can’t stress this enough, if you haven’t seen this film, GO WATCH IT.

2. Saving Private Ryan (1998)

Well, another Spielberg film. This time, it’s his best one. Saving Private Ryan is the undisputed king of war films. The visual effects, cast, acting, story, and emotions of this film are second to none. The film is about a band of soldiers in WWII whose mission is to locate and bring back Private Ryan. It really is that simple, but not so simple at the same time. Tom Hanks’ portrayal of the leader is the best of his career, and that says a heck of a lot. This film is a masterpiece on every level. It’s the reason people go to the cinema.

1. Gladiator (2000)

“My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, Commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next.”

Alright folks, there it is. The OBJECTIVELY best movie of all time. Gladiator has it all: Swords, blood, acting, score, lions, barbarians on fire. It has it all. The film centers around a former Roman General turned slave and his quest for vengeance against the new Roman Emperor. Who would think an Aussie actor like Russell Crowe would become the greatest Roman Character of all time? We also can’t forget about Joaquin Phoenix and his performance as Commodus, the antagonist that makes everyone’s blood boil. Aside from the acting, visuals and story, this film boasts the best movie score of all time. Hans Zimmer is known for dozens of top tier movie scores, but this is his best. “The Battle” and “Now We Are Free” are pieces of music one can listen to for the rest of their lives.

Now that you’ve gone through the top 10 best films of all time, what do you think? I’d also like to remind you that there isn’t any dispute about this list’s validity. The science is settled, and you’re a bigot if you disagree.

The Supreme Court Void – A Chance for Republicans to show their Spine

By Ken Gulley

Ruth Bader Ginsburg – a Titan of the Left – has passed away. In her wake, a massive vacancy is left on the bench of the United States Supreme Court.

She was no friend of originalism and conservatism but condolences, respect, honor, and public displays of mourning (ie. A lowered Flag) are due to honor her title and position in our government.

The United States Supreme Court

For the believer, like myself, condolences and prayer are expected, not celebration. We don’t take joy the death of enemies or those we vehemently disagree with.

When the powers are shaken, mice and men stir to fill the void. In the powers of the United States, the branches are supposed to balanced – whether they currently are (or even should be) is a matter of opinionated disagreement.

This year has shown us the utter character of the foundation of ideologies behind some of those powers.

Conservatism has shown itself to be stoic, steadfast, deeply rooted yet in philosophy and wisdom yet nuanced and bent toward the moral absolutes and pursuit of righteousness. It’s rigid traditionalism has found itself to be an outright enemy of the ever “progressing” views of the opposition.

Classical Liberalism on the other-hand is a refined gentleman, wise, educated, proper and tolerant. Sadly, it’s characteristic’s are all but dead on the Left.

Liberalism, bent toward utopic visions, is still staunch in its moral standing that it’s opposition should have the equal right to both practice and belief as itself. For this repugnant violation, it has become endangered among the party that onced championed it.

In the void left behind by Liberalism, Leftism has sprung up, rapidly consuming and devolving the minds of those touched by its tentacles. Disruptive, destructive, devoid of an anchor, arched toward materialism and its post-modern understanding; a plague that has devoured and dismantled everything it touches: the university, the arts, the sciences, and even sports.

Leftism

A proliferation of this pandemic has exacerbated the eagerness of emissaries to engorge themselves on power.

In pursuit of this very thing, in 2013, a short-sighted grab of power by then majority Democratic Senator Harry Reid, “the Nuclear option” was dealt. As a result, a simple majority, 51 votes (rather than 60), has now become the deciding number needed to approve Federal Judges – with the exception of the supreme court.

In politics, an unprecedented power grab is always met in kind. With patience, that response came at the right hour in 2017. In a dramatic, perhaps necessary move to end debate on then Supreme Court appointee Neil Gorsuch, former (and current )Senate Republican Majority leader McConnell extended the simple majority to Supreme Court appointees.

A rule change and power matching move that now looms ever-large upon the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Self Explanitory

Sowing and reaping is a basic lesson taught by wise theologians and the simple farmers. It is an ironic testimony against the Democratic party for their illiteracy of that very elementary task, as they figuratively and literally despise both noble professions.

For the past 80 years, a Precedent has stood for legislators to avoid appointee a new Supreme Court Justice in an election year.

Precedents are upheld by gentlemen. I am a fan of both precedent and gentlemanliness. Leftism is devoid of the very characteristic and liberalism as we know it is dead among the Left.

This year more than ever, Leftists have shown us how far they are willing to go to destroy our history, attack the foundations, and assault the institutions to instill their corrupt vision of society.

Leftism does not tolerate opposition, it attacks our very principles, and seeks to destroy our most hallowed Rights – from our means of defense to the very words we utter. They’ve employed totalitarianism in business, athletics, social media, policy, procedure and thought. To suggest that they do not aim to go further if they can is to be absolutely naive.

They employ the powers of states, legislatures, judges, influencers in music, television, media and law. They have already shown they are able and willing to seduce more people by expanding their horizons to seats of faith, and science.

Media Apologism

All this and still they summon the nerve to cry out for precedent and decorum when they themselves broke the natural check and balance placed within the Senate by using the so called “nuclear option.” The boldness to call out for fairness as they employ legions of marxist rioters demanding radical change.

The Right, from conservative to Republican-moderates (and other liberty bent folk in between) have played the part of the silent majority and etiquette oriented gatekeepers for far too long. We’ve fought in the ring with propriety and rules while our opposition has used eye gouging, groin kicks and their incisors.

Now they ask us to follow a set of rules that do not exist for propriety and fairness sake? How bold. Mitch and friends will be called hypocrites for holding tight to Precedent in the past. That is fine. Wear the title, if it means fending off the radicalism that may be headed to the bench if they have their way.

In 2016, though I often stand on the importance of Precedent, I never made an argument for it. I simply understood that the Senate – especially the majority in opposition to the Executive – has no responsibility or obligation to approve whomever the President wishes to appoint.

While some may hang on the emotional argument of Ruth’s “last wishes,” they should also know that the same person shirked established precedent and urged the Senate to replace her former colleague Antonin Scalia, saying

“There’s nothing in the Constitution that says the president stops being president in his last year,” she said when asked if the Senate had an obligation to vote on Judge Garland. “That’s their job,” she said.

Justice Scalia

Senator Ted Cruz has eloquently explained the importance of filling the vacancy by explaining the necessity of the Supreme Court in adjudicating what looks to be a contest election. An election where Democrat leaders have already called for Biden to refuse abdication. But when have the Left ever listened to reasoned and sound argument?

We’re at a doorway, an impasse, with Leftism and right now the best way to hold the lone against the loss of liberty is through the high court. If Republicans have a spine, they’ll do the job we elected them to do. So with 2 months to go, ram it through Mitch! “Breacher up!”

Five Points to Consider: The Shooting of Jacob Blake – Kenosha, Wisconsin

By Ken Gulley

As Wisconsin reels from riots following the viral shooting of Jacob Blake; media, politicians, celebrities, activists, and athletes have not missed an opportunity to condemn America all over again. Major sports have canceled their activities in one big virtue signal, coming to their own conclusion that the officers involved are guilty of wrongdoing before the facts come to light

The story they pitch is the same, “Police kill black people for no reason.” They offer up a new holy martyr on the mantel Social Justice as means to allow Marxist-Leftist policy creep.

The Soft Bigotry of Low Expectations

By Ken Gulley

“Our enemy is the soft bigotry of low expectations.”

Condoleezza Rice borrowed this phrase to ignite a fire in certain underserved education communities.

Today, the phrase is best used to describe Leftist treatment of minority communities, as if dealing with an ignorant and unruly child: “Lowered expectations.”

No, You Should Not Be Ashamed to Celebrate the 4th of July

By Joshua Weigert
July 3rd, 2020

For the past several days, there has been much talk about “canceling” the 4th of July. The idea behind canceling Independence Day is not a surprise: America is a terrible, awful, no good place. The reasons for this canceling are equally not surprising: Racism towards African-Americans, Native Indians, and general anti-LGBTQAAIIPEIEIOAT&T sentiments. 

Yes, the history of America was not always great and, at times, profoundly evil. Slavery and Jim Crow laws are examples of how systemic racism and bigotry were able to run rampant. However, this does not mean that America, the American Constitution, or the Declaration of Independence, is rooted in racism and/or evil. Few more profound words have ever been written than “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that ALL men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” 

THIS is what America was founded on. THIS is what America strives towards. THIS is also what leftists are trying to destroy.

More Fake Noose

By Ken Gulley

As America continues to reel from the dilemma posed by the purely political response to Covid-19 and nationwide protests against perceived racial injustice, a sudden rash of “Fake Hate Crimes” have gained national attention.

If you remember the mid-20-teens and the rash of fake hate crimes after the first Black Lives Matter movement after Ferguson, you probably remember this website tracking confirmed fakes: lickity-Link.

Well the new spurt of fake hate crimes seem a bit different. They’re not being falsely perpetuated by the victim but rather being stoked by third parties and the media.

Yes, White People CAN Talk About Race Issues

By Joshua Weigert
May 31st, 2020
(Header Image by Paweł Pająk)

I don’t know who needs to hear this, but you have a voice and CAN talk about race issues. Whether you are white, black, yellow, purple or neon orange, no one has the right to tell you to be quiet and that your voice doesn’t matter.

As a white male, I have been bombarded with posts on social media about how my white voice needs to “shut up” and listen to the voices of African-Americans and other visible minorities. I think listening is important. But I will not be silenced.
