It's all through a project called The Market America Non-Profit Organization Program. It allows support ers of non-profits to shop on line at their favorite stores and receive special offers for doing so, while at the same time generating additional cash for their favorite non profit. Here's how it works. Non-profit organizations cre ate their own personal web site through Market America. Supporters of that non-profit then log on to the site and are able to link to their favorite on-line stores such as Wal-mart, Staples, EBay, The Home Depot and many others. They then shop for items as they normally would then complete the transaction by paying for their purchases. The non-profit receives roy alties based on the amount purchased. There are 3 ,500 on-line stores participating. Winifred Pope is one of the Bay area's Market Amer ica representatives. She says the more supporters shop and encourage their family and friends to the higher the earnings for the non-profit. But that's not the only incentive. "Supporters themselves receive cash back for purchases and a half per cent for the people they refer to the site. The non-profit then receives commission from that." The program is free of charge and can remain ongo ing for as long as the non profit organization desires. Proof of eligibility is needed at the time of enrollment.

Florida To Join The Wild, Wild West C I f Florida Legislators have their way, we may soon see (as early as July 1st) Florida citizens wearing hoistered guns on school and college campuses, in bars and c grocery stores, in shopping malls, and on the street. fJ) Why? The Florida. Republican-led Legislature is about to .,_ pass a law that will allow citizens with concealed weapons permits to openly carry their guns in public. Perhaps, the w name of our state will officially change from Florida to > Gunsmoke. w c In spite of opposition from Florida's sheriffs and po-: W lice organizations, State Legislators rolled the bill through committees to be voted on by the legislature with ::J deliberate speed. Their rationale was they wanted to proteet citizens with concealed weapons permits from being a.. arrested in cases where "a strong wind" might blow open z the weapon carrier's shirt and could reveal the firearm fjj accidentally. Bosh!! We cannot believe either legislators, ...J or voters would fall for such nonsense. S However, country like America where clearly milIII lions of citizens demonstrate poor anger management, ...J w z i= z w fJ) <( c a: 0 ...J adding openly carried weapons to the mix is tantamount to pouring gasoline on nitroglycerin and striking the match.

However, since that is NOT the case, and since there is still time left to vote, let me share 35 reasons why you should go to tlie polls and vote, today. On November 2, 1920, at least 35 Black people were either burned in their homes, were shot, or hanged in Ocoee, Florida, near Orlando, Florida. They were murdered in cold blood simply because of their attempt to register and to vote. Here's how Orlando, Florida news reporters de scribed the massacre, in the November 4th issue of the New York Times: "Reports tonight from Ocoee, near here, where an election day riot caused the death of two white men and a number of Negroes, indicated that quiet prevailed, that practically all Negroes had left the region, nearly all of them afoot; as there was no ex odus by rail. .. Estelle Perry, widow of the Negro who was lynched and whose demand that he be permitted to vote was said to have precipitated the riot, and her daughter was wounded during the fighting. They have been sent to Tampa by the authorities for treatment and to avoid further dis turbance." So, more than 90 years ago, 35 to 50 innocent men, women and children died in the Ocoee Riot simply for your right to vote (or should I say, for your right to stay home, on Election Day). Indeed, the riot was precipitated when Mose Norman and Julius "July" Perry, two wealthy Black landowners in Ocoee, registered Blacks in Orange County to vote, even paying the poll tax for Blacks who could not afford the cost. At that time, nearly half of Ocoee's population was Black. Sources state that a white Re publican judge, John M. Cheney, who was running for the United States Senate, was behind the voter registration campaign. Nevertheless, Klansmen in the area harassed Norman and Perry and even threatened Judge Cheney. Letter To The Editor Consequently, on Presi dential Election Day, November 2, 1920, Norman and Perry were turned away from the polls when they arrived to cast their votes. Reportedly, Norman returned to the polls and was refused a second time. On a third trip to the polls, Norman carried a shotgun, but was pistol whipped and sent running for his life. After word of the confrontation spread throughout the state, a lynch mob formed to find and punish both Perry and Norman for trYing to vote. That night, more than 250 Klansmen and white Ocoee residents set fire to the Black section oftown, causing Black residents to "flee for their lives into the orange groves, swamps, and neighboring towns." When the smoke cleared, 25 homes, two churches, and a Masonic lodge were burned to the ground. Among the 35 to so deaths was that of "July" Perry whose body was found hanging from a light pole. Perry had killed two white men who were trying to attack him. Mose Norman's fate was unknown because he was never heard from again. Land owned and abandoned by Blacks who fled was seized, divided up and sold for $1.50 per acre . Not until 1981 would Blacks come to live in Ocoee again. Today, November 2, 1920 is called the "single bloodiest day in modern 4Jnerican political history." Now, will you please go vote! Harambee! somebodv Ought To sav. Soinething Gov. Rick Scott told the Black Caucus he's about philosophy, not color," it appears that our new Governor, Rick Scott, managed to insult the sensibilities of every person of color in Florida, and particularly African Americans. Governor Scott's welcoming luncheon was anything but welcoming. He stated that he probably grew up in the same situation as "you guys," referring to the 20 Black CauCus members present. I think I am safe to say he was also referring to the over two million African Americans in the State of Florida. I cannot speak for all African Americans in Florida, but I, for one, know that his situation as a white child growing up was in no way comparable to mine.' His humble origins did not include being caned the "N" word each day as an eighth grader when in 1966, five Black boys -integrated Dowdell Jwiipr High School. Nor did his humble origins require of him to fight for hi. s survival and his rights to engage equally among his peers based on skin color. His "same situation" did not occur within the context of a racist 8ystem for which he was on the receiving end. Moreover, his failed attempt to relate as one who knows and understands, instead stereotypes all who were present who did not experience what he assumes to be the only African American expeiience. African American culture is not monolithic; it is diverse. It is frightening that he shows little awareness of, and insensitivity to those cultural nuances. Gov. Scott infornied aii of us that he is "about philosophy, not color." Let.me interpret the "coded language" that he and others like him appear to be speaking these days. The Southern States that wanted to succeed from the Union had a "philosophy;" Governor George Wallace and Bull Conners had simi--lar philosophies, the Ku Klu Klan has a philosophy, and now Gov. Rick Scott. says it's not about color, it's abOut his philosophy. While not boldly articulated, the implications of that philosophy are deeply felt: Black institutions of 'higher learnmg have no place in the St;ate of Florida's Healthcare for all Floridians is minimized "Obamacare," and any money coming from the Obama: Administration for jobs for the State of Florida is not welcomed. It is a philosophy that fails to recognize the need for Black leaders in key posi-tions. It is an oppressive and regressive philosophy, reminiscent of our past history. Gov. Scott's arrogance in speaking with the African .Ameljcan Legisla.:. tors should be the warning shot and the alarm that wakes up the African American community, especially the Black Clergy. ... .One of the reasons our Governor and others like him can be so bold is becatise very few in the Black community speak out and call his philosophy what it is. Our silence will continue to allow such individuals to reverse the legacy of our fore parents. Our.. Black politicians will continue to be of little effect to the political process until the -Black Clergy remove the chains of politeness and silence. 'Ole cautious memhers of our congregation$. may try to stop us from. speaking out, just as they did td Dr. King in his day. However, just as Dr. King and countless others of all races, genders, creeds; and colon raised up against the Scotts of It is now time. Somebody ought to say sOmething! REV.

One of the highlights of the celebration is known as the "Parade of Countries." During the parade, the stu dents speak, walk and per form m their heritage languages.

____________________ ________________________________ 50 Years Later ... Storv Of Freedom Riders Comes To The Big Screen Freedom Riders 1 BY TAMECA JOHNSON Freelance Writer The year was 1961. The Civil Rights movement was in full swing. From May through November of that year, hundreds of Blacks and whites joined together to defy laws of the Jim Crow South, enduring brutal beatings, jail time and the threat of death. Their crime was simply riding together on. buses through the Deep South. Whites sat in the back of the bus, Blacks in the front. At rest stops, whites would go into Black only areas and vice versa. Their actions were met with violent mobs and bitter racism, forcing President John F. Kennedy to take action. Millions of Americans watched the story unfold back then on television. However, the story is now being retold to a new generation, debuting on the big screen next month in Tampa. Freedom Riders pre mieres Wednesday, April13, 2011 at the Tampa Theater. The film recounts the harrowing and inspirational story of six months that led to history making change in the country. WEDU is sponsor ing the event. Those who attend will have the opportunity to meet several of the original Freedom Rid ers, as well as Dr. Ray Arsenault, author of the book Freedom Riders: 1961 and the Struggle for Racial_Jus tice. The film is partially based on that book. WEDU President and CEO, Susan Horwath tells the Sentinel she 's proud to bring this story to the Tampa community. '' This comple ments our role as a valuable resource for amazing stories like this one.

LOS ANGELES Lakers coach Phil Jackson has no idea how the NBA did the math that resulted in Andrew Bynum receiving a two-game suspension for his flagrant foul on Minnesota's Michael Beasley. Jackson just knows the absence of the shotblocking center is a big negative in the middle of the two-time champions' defense. Bynum, who has little prior history of hard fouls, missed Sunday's game against Portland and will sit out Tuesday's meeting with Phoenix under the suspension announced morning by the NBA. Jackson said he agreed ANDREW BYNUM with the flagrant foul and Bynum's ejection last Fiiday, but thought the resulting penalty was "excessive." Bynum will lose roughly $250,000 during his suspension without pay.

;; Entertainment Jermaine Jackson Stranded In Africa Due To Not Paving Child Support c en w :::::1 .... c JERMAINE JACKSON Jermaine Jackson is stuck in Africa. While taking a trip to Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, Jackson realized that his passport expired, a situa tion that would normally be remedied by a trip to the U.S. Embassy. But because Jackson owes almost $10o,ooo in child support, he is currently stranded on the other side of the world until he either pays up, or the government makes an exception for him. In May 2008, the mother of Jackson's baby, Alejandra Oaziaza, filed a child support order against Jackson to pay $3,000 a month. As quickly as the order was filed, Jackson balked on the order, pushing his overall back payments to a staggering $91,921. In Califor nia, when someone owes more than $2,500, Child Services informs the FBI of the delin quency -a situation that can freeze a passport renewal. Jackson's passport will be renewed once he makes good on his debt, though the Amer ican Embassy has been known to make exceptions for U.S. citizens by issuing temporary papers in cert-ain circumstances. c: LL c z <( Missv And Keri Denv lesbian lover Allegations c en w :::::1 .... fi: w > w c w ::r:: en ::::i m :::::1 ll.
