IT WAS ALL GOOD
Fantastic Trifecta can best describe the events occurring in the last few weeks in the black community. First, came the Juneteenth celebrations and they were outstanding, That same Saturday came the 8-second Black Rodeo. That Black Rodeo thing was a surprisingly great success. Then came the Good in the Hood and Wow was it poppin’. I mean, was it just me ?, or was black people saying “Let us just be free to kick it”? It seems to me that black people were saying “Free at last, thank God almighty, Free at last from COVID and all that mask stuff. It was such a pleasant sight to watch Black people on all occasions just enjoying themselves together.
I can’t say enough about all those who organized these events. I was so proud of Vince Jones, Ashton Simpson and their folks at the Black Rodeo, Jenelle Jack and her crew at the Juneteenth events, and Simone Carter, Deborah Roache, Angela Harris, and all their crew making the best “Good in the Hood” I have ever seen.
Of course, I was doing my NAACP thang at all events. I was soliciting my butt off but I was so proud of Black people. Did I mention unless I am mistaken, with few exceptions, no measurable incidents of violence were reported? Hallaluha, Praise God.
