“THE RENEWAL OF A VOICE FOR A CONTINUOUS SOLIDARITY BREAKTHROUGH DAY!”

                The whole of society is clamoring for change.  Change, which shall improve the lot of the imperfect people and the impoverished people, will not come as a result of a political election.  Positive change for the oppressed people, the disadvantaged people can only emerge by a united front of those who have been designated as second class citizens and relegated to a suppressed populace state.

                Today, www.blacksforchange.com invites you to help empower the Black People in America by registering as a member on this site.  Membership on www.blacksforchange.com is non-invasive into your privacy.  It will; however, present a display of potential as a powerful unified effort. 

                  WWW.BLACKSFORCHANGE.COM shall present an opportunity for Brothers and Sisters to interact with a common thread to raise Black Consciousness.  You will be asked to give up far less personal data than a number of people freely give away daily on Facebook as well as a number of other web sites or social media hybrids.

                WWW.BLACKSFORCHANGE.COM is an endeavor owned and operated by Blacks.  It has been created by Blacks to advance solutions for Blacks as part of the ongoing “Solution Strategy” of the Midwest Minority Think Tank for Public Policy, Leadership, and Service, LLC.  This unique pioneering tool has been designed to further the awareness of Black Consciousness, while presenting a unified voice of solidarity among Blacks in America. 

                It serves well to reiterate at this point that “the call to register” on www.blacksforchange.com should never be confused as a voter registration drive associated with any local, state, national primary or general election.  When you have registered on www.blacksforchange.com, you will have proactively acted upon a precision call to become a functional part of an ongoing campaign to set forth solutions that shall elevate all Blacks.  WWW.BLACKSFORCHANGE.COM shall directly impact the African-American community by opening access to a platform to every member in more than a symbolic gesture.  Each voice of descendants of African slaves living in America can now be heard.

                Once you, your family, your friends as well as your acquaintances, your associates, and your colleagues have registered on www.blacksforchange.com, you will have in essence released a preemptive measure to help build a solidarity voice for the people.  This solidarity voice campaign has a realistically obtainable goal of One Million Strong by Black History Month (February) 2017.

                Black people should not and do not have to fear change.  Change, positive change for Blacks in America, – when congealed through solidarity – is inevitable.  We, African-Americans/Blacks in America, must unpretentiously become the engineers, who will determine what the positive change will engulf and represent.  The outcome of this social/theoretical engineering shall reveal itself as a watchword to be etched into Black Consciousness.  This positive change shall impact Black lives for generations to come.  A Change Is Coming!

                I have over 1100 friends on Facebook as well as followers of my blog and other social media venues, I make an earnest and urgent appeal to each and every one of you (if you have not already done so, as many already have) – please register today on www.blacksforchange.com.  In addition, I am urging you to lift up the watchword to join this Black Consciousness movement by uniting with www.blacksforchange.com.  Join with me and countless others who have determined to make this a catch phrase going forward: “make today and every day – THE RENEWAL OF A  VOICE FOR A CONTINUOUS SOLIDARITY BREAKTHROUGH DAY.”

                I strongly implore you to invite ten (10) others from your formal and informal list collaborators, coworkers, partners, and teammates to register on www.blacksforchange.com.  Join with www.blacksforchange.com and be a part of this history making venture.

                Our strategy at www.blacksforchange.com represents an easily launched and clearly defined initiative that will make each and every day: THE RENEWAL OF A VOICE FOR A CONTINUOUS SOLIDARITY BREAKTHROUGH DAY!

REVISIT 2. – FELONS IN AMERICA – PART II – AN OPEN PASSAGE TO BREATHE

REVISIT 2. – FELONS IN AMERICA

PART II – AN OPEN PASSAGE TO BREATHE

Why is it that no sales associates will inquire if an individual has a felony conviction before concluding a purchase?  By the same token, no one has ever been asked at the time of purchase whether or not that the possessor of the American currency has a criminal record?  Yet, the same business will deny the same person a chance to earn American currency honestly, if the request or of employment has recorded a felony conviction.

Let us begin to think and reason together.  What steps must be taken to give everyone who has the desire and skill set to make a decent living in this country?  If the intent of the Criminal Justice System is only to carry out a mandate from the Judicial Branch of Government, and the Legislative Branch of Government, and the Executive Branch of Government, then those who have suffered (directly and in-directly) must speak to the system to give their follow human beings equal access to the right to exist in a quality state of life.

No one is asking the government to come forth with more handouts, it is simply the matter of removing the foot from the neck of someone already struggling to recover an open passage to breathe.

The convicted felon has lost the right to protect his or her family with a firearm (NRA your help is needed) as well as the privilege to secure a decent wage.  The absence of these two critical components of responsible adulthood means the surrender of respect within the family structure.  The authority that came with adulthood and parenthood has been dismissed, when an individual lacks the means to provide food, shelter, and clothing for those he or she loves.  Respect for authority has been lost in the jungle of the denial of personhood status, whenever the laws expel a human being from the opportunity to be all that the Creator endowed an individual to accomplish.

SPECIAL EPILOGUE – Today, I was official refused a job by a janitorial service due sole to my past record.  Never mind that I have paid my debt to society.  Never mind that I have studied at the Doctoral Studies level.  Please do not put down every Black male who does not have a job.  I have tried unsuccessfully for two years to find a job.  What is a man (or woman) supposed to do?  Enough of this pull yourself up by your bootstraps and work hard message.  An ex-offender can be pushed to the brink with all the forgiveness talk and the reality of the antitheses action.

All ex-offenders, their families, and their friends should immediately register on www.blacksforchange.com.  We need you to register today on www.blacksforchange.com.  Join us for VOICE OF SOLIDARITY BREAKTHROUGH DAY – FRIDAY, JULY 29, 2016.  We are asking each individual to invite ten (10) people from your acquaintances and associates (in addition to family members) to register on www.blacksforchange.com.  Together, let us make history.  We can start this historic strategy on – VOICE OF SOLIDARITY BREAKTHROUGH DAY.

 

REVISIT – FELONS IN AMERICA – THE BACKGROUND CHECK (A HIGH HURDLE)

IMG_0075

FELONS IN AMERICA – THE BACKGROUND CHECK
(A HIGH HURDLE)
In a nation, any nation, laws exist to protect the orderly function of that society. Without law and order there would be chaos and mayhem.
A felony conviction in America has turned into a life sentence and a living hell after prison release. This statement is not a misnomer. Even if the felony conviction has not resulted in a life sentence in an incarcerated state, upon release, freedom for an ex-offender comes with the inability to secure decent housing (background check), equal opportunity employment (Background check), and the right to vote (disenfranchisement in a number of states). Some perfect individual (out there somewhere in America), please explain to me, “how in the hell on earth does an ex-offender commandeer good credit (with no job or housing).
Paying the debt that society has imposed through the Judicial System has proven to be insufficient. The person, who has been convicted of a felony, has pay for the rest of his or her life. Many dood causes or organizations cannot permit well-meaning volunteers to participate in their structured programs (background check).
Too many people have suffered continuously (besides the victims or the victimizers), mothers-fathers, wives-husbands, and children-grand-children as a result of an individual’s felony conviction. All have experienced the loser’s pain in a nation that has appeared unwilling to forgive even after heavy penalties have been paid in full.
Has the tone of the nation bowed to life punishment for any error or wrong act?
How have the hypocrites formed such an alliance that the entire nation has suffered from the un-forgiveness syndrome?
If you are an ex-felon, have a family member who is an ex-felon, or have a friend who is an ex-felon, it is time to register immediately on www.blacksforchange.com. This is a Black Consciousness website that will give a positive voice to all ex-offenders and their families. This website, www.blacksforchange.com, will fill the role od advocate and lobbyist for the ex-offender population and all Black people and their concerns. WWW.BLACKSFORCHANGE.COM shall provide a positive direction that must open for those desirous of living a meaningful and productive life.
Who has the right to designate an individual to a permanent underclass status?
The call to register on www.blacksforchange.com should never be confused as a voter registration drive associated with any primary or general election. When you register on www.blacksforchange.com, you will have acted on a precise call to become part of campaign to set forth solutions. WWW.BLACKSFORCHANGE.COM shall directly impact the African-American community by opening a platform to every individual. Once you, your family, and your friends successfully register on www.blacksforchange.com, you will have taken a proactive measure to help build a solidarity voice.

NATION BUILDER DAILY DEVOTIONAL – DAY 16

cropped-JPEG72_big.jpg

NATION BUILDER DAILY DEVOTIONAL

DAY 16 –

Scripture of the Day: “Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts.  They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts.” Acts 2:46 NIV

Quote of the Day: “Nation Building will never demand the historiographical similitudes of prior evolutions, when the foundational doctrine shall rest upon the preeminence of Christ.”

Message of the Day: With unity invoked and practiced, what was deemed lost shall discover a newfound mastery over former plagues.  Unity will breathe in vision and shall exhale success.  Not looking critically for cracks in another’s armour, unity can seal leaks and will strengthen vulnerable areas.  Unity shall broaden prospective and will narrow the chance of failure. Unity has the power to pour out life as showers and the mercy to absorb shortcomings into a river of opportunity.

Unity will rejoice and shout the victory in advance.  Unity shall enable the imperfect people and the impoverished people to extend an invitation to justice seekers, progressive individuals, and skilled laborers to join in a harmonious refrain: “Peace will be our administrator and righteousness our overseers.  Violence will not be heard in our land, nor devastation or destruction within our borders.  Our walls are salvation and our gates praise.  We will rejoice greatly in the Lord.  Our souls exult in our God!”

Prayer of the Day: Bless the imperfect people and the impoverished people to dwell in unity, seeking the greater good for all.  Amen. (And It Is So!)

A FLAWED VISIONARY: INTRODUCTORY STATEMENT

 cropped-JPEG72_big.jpg

A FLAWED VISIONARY: INTRODUCTORY STATEMENT

My name is Mark Carven Olds.  I am Managing Director of the Midwest Minority Think Tank. I would like to share with you, in the form of an introductory statement, my role as “A Flawed Visionary.”   Resilience has been my path of necessity.  The circumstances that I have encountered in life have forced me to find a way to rise above the escapades in life that have often attempted to my bury character and potential.  As result, I have learned to walk by faith.

For me, walking by faith has become a way of life and not merely a religious cliché.  Having the experience of overcoming numerous setbacks, I have become, as penned by the Apostle Paul, “more than a conqueror.”  This witness has originated, not out of arrogance, but out of the factual necessity to bounce back from my personal failures, conspiracies of  my fellow human sojourners, and the vicious demonic attacks thrust upon my pathway.

I have been impressed in my spirit to share several messages with you.  In the ceremonial announcement, I must introduce myself to some, present myself to others, and reconnect with still others.  My desire is to reach those who have suffered the most, possessed the least, victimized most often, and face a potential eternity without peace.

 I have experienced the fragile state of the peaks and valleys that occur in life.  These peaks and valleys experiences have prepared me to better serve and to possible help others to overcome their frailties and shortcomings.  To all my brothers and sisters who have fallen short or have failed miserably on numerous occasions, my message will contain hope for your success.

To those fortunate individuals who have everything going for them or have never missed the mark at any time, my message may not resonate with you.

And for those who can only receive instructions from the faultless, I will probably have limited appeal.  However, if you have been exposed to multiple life crises, you should find my words exceptionally helpful.  If you can receive directions from one who has overcome numerous mistakes and many occasions of misjudgment; perhaps, I can surely assist you.

My title, “A Flawed Visionary,” has not come by way of a religious presbytery, neither has it become a trendy sought after label.  In fact, there is no welcoming earthly coronation celebratory occasion.  You can only wear or receive this title by experience and suffering as decreed by a spiritual bond and a prophetic destiny sealed by the Father before the foundation of the world.

Therefore as an “A Flawed Visionary” – (Servant-Leader) – I must always utter hope.  The message of hope must fly like an arrow that has been meticulously aimed toward a target of ostracized people.  However, “A Flawed Visionary” will forge a message that can zoom along a passageway toward the heart of all humanity.  “A Flawed Visionary” must present a message that can illuminate the dark side of humanity as a stream of light that shall reveal life and power.  When properly navigated, a people can arrive on the shores of a status challenge (full equality)”

This shall serve as my introductory statement, I am Mark Carven Olds, A Flawed Visionary, Author, Clergyman, Convicted Felon, Entrepreneur, Life Coach, Servant-Leader, Social Theoretician, and Theologian.
