MJSMQOTW: Should Illinois Restrict Transgender Bathroom Use

While North Carolina has received international backlash, for a similar bill, Illinois Republican State Representative Tommy Morrison has introduced HB4474 in Springfield that would restrict the bathrooms that transgender students can use in schools, field trips, and school sponsored overnight stays.  While the bill makes the restrictions “optional” it would allow schools to adopt the policy, which LGBT groups claim is discriminatory.  Tune in to The Matt McGill Morning Show on WVON 1690-AM for The Maze Jackson Social Media Question of the Week, where I will ask:

Should transgender students in public schools be able to use the bathroom of the sex that they identify as, or what it says on the person’s birth certificate?

Should the Chicago Pay for Employee Gender Reassignment (Sex Changes)?

The Chicago Sun-Times reported that the City of Chicago is finalizing a plan to cover gender reassignment (sex changes) as part of their healthcare plan. As we continue to discuss the pension issue, school closings, and a budget mess, the city announces sex changes are a priority?  This morning on The Matt McGill Morning Show on WVON 1690AM – The Talk of Chicago,  The Maze Jackson Social Media Question of the Week was:

“Has the LGBT agenda trumped the common sense agenda? Why is the city even discussing gender reassignment (sex changes) in the midst of the pension crisis we claim to have?”

What do you think?  Should the City of Chicago insurance cover sex changes?  Is that a moral issue or is it just a new age medical issue that we need to get used to?  If so, I think the City should the city pay for breast augmentation, tummy tucks, and booty lifts?  What do you think?

 

 

If We Need the Body Camera It’s Already Too Late!

 

 

Once again we the police have committed MURDER with police officer Ray Tensing shooting the unarmed Samuel DuBose, a Black man. Meanwhile, we have become so used to these killings that the shooting of Cecil the Lion IN AFRICA (I find that quite ironic by the way) is a bigger story.

Not only did Tensing and his fellow officers killed the man, they did not call for life support, collaborated on an alibi, filed a false report, and slandered the dead man’s character. If you as me what is the difference between those police and  a gang terrorizing a neighborhood.

This morning on The Matt McGill Morning Show on WVON 1690AM – The Talk of Chicago, The Maze Jackson Social Media Question of the Week was:

“What can Black people do to protect themselves from the police? Who do we call…law abiding or not?”

Body cameras are not the answer in my eyes. While I think they are necessary TO SOLVE POLICE INVOLVED MURDERS, that’s exactly the issue. IF WE NEED TO LOOK AT THE TAPE OF THE BODY CAMERA, IT’S ALREADY TOO LATE. You’re dead and they are trying to figure out why.

Also, pay attention to the media assault on Samuel DuBose. White media has already begun the character destruction of Mr. DuBose, who is the victim. At the same time, they will present the MURDEROUS POLICE OFFICER TENSING the most positive a light as possible.  The States Attorney called him “asinine” which sounds a lot nicer than “cold blooded murderer.”  How long before we learn that DuBose “had marijuana in his system” to justify the murder?

How Black people see Samuel DuBose.
How White media needs White America to view Samuel DuBose to rationalize his murder.

After watching the Sandra Bland video, it is clear that she knew her rights and exercised them, almost to textbook perfection in dealing with the police officer. She was still arrested and ended up dead. Tune in to the Matt McGill Morning Show on WVON 1690AM – The Talk of Chicago for The Maze Jackson Social Media Question of the Week, where I will ask:

Did Sandra Bland’s attitude get her killed? If not what could she have done to save her life?

The Maze Jackson Social Media Question of the Week 7/16

 

Every day we are bombarded with stories of murder and violence in the Black community, and we very rarely hear stories of positive contributions of Blacks outside of a historical perspective. Tune in to The Matt McGill Morning Show on WVON 1690AM – The Talk of Chicago for The Maze Jackson Social Media Question of the Week, where I will ask:

Have all the negative stories of Black people in the media negatively affected how we as Black people view ourselves? Do we actually believe the worst about ourselves?”
