The American Dream Deferred By Stacy M. Brown NNPA Newswire Correspondent
 The American Dream is described as a national ethos: a set of ideals in which freedom includes the opportunity for prosperity and success, and upward social mobility for the family and children, achieved through hard work in a society with few barriers. That’s the Wikipedia definition. For African American millennials, the dream remains deferred – and in some cases, is a nightmare. “The American Dream, the idea that anyone can succeed through hard work, is one of the most enduring myths in this country. And one of its most prominent falsehoods,” Reniqua Allen, the author of “It Was All a Dream” wrote in a recent New York Times Op-Ed. “As I entered my 30s, still navigating what achieving the dream would mean, I wondered what other black millennials were feeling. I wanted to figure out what my generation of Black Americans thought about the promise of the American dream and how we can attain it,” Allen said. Keli Hammond, the owner and CEO of Washington, D.C.-based B Classic Marketing & Communications and author of “Craved: the Secret Sauce to Building a Highly-Successful, Standout Brand,” said Black millennials have an uphill climb to achieve the American Dream. “Unfortunately, this is a very true reality. Race is a touchy subject in this country – always has been, always will be,” Hammond said. “It’s funny because, even thought it’s part of our social construct, it’s still incredibly uncomfortable when it’s talked about.” Hammond, who holds a bachelor’s degree in Advertising from Temple University and a certification in Change Leadership from Cornell University, noted that race has a way of humbling dreams quite fast. “Although I believe that millennials in general are struggling to identify with the American Dream, for Black millennials it can often feel like a dream you can’t achieve,” she said. “We weren’t afforded the same job opportunities or raises, we don’t have the same networks, we’re not given the same leeway if we make a mistake, and we don’t have the same access to capital or generational wealth – it’s hard every day,” Hammond said. In a survey customized exclusively for NNPA News-

wire, Branded Research asked 452 African Americans which aspect of the American Dream is most important. A total of 30 percent said having a comfortable retirement; 21 percent said homeownership; 21 percent said setting up their children for success; 15 percent said owing a business; 7 percent said a college education; and 6 percent said having a nuclear family. When broken down by gender, 22 percent of men and 34 percent of women said having a comfortable retirement was most important. Twenty-two percent of men identified homeownership as most important as compared with 21 percent of

women. When broken down by age, 24 percent of those between 18 and 24 identified setting up their children for success was most important and 21 percent of the same age group said having a comfortable retirement and owning a business is paramount. Twenty-eight percent of African Americans between 25 and 34 identified home ownership as most important followed by setting up their children for success (27 percent); and having a comfortable retirement (19 percent). Overall, African American consumers are most likely to say that the most important aspects of the American Dream are having a comfortable retirement, homeownership and setting children up for success. African American women are more likely than African American men to say that having a comfortable retirement is the most important aspect of the American Dream. Younger African Americans value homeownership, setting up children for success and owning a business while older African Americans value a comfortable retirement most.   “The American Dream isn’t what I strive for [because] my goal is to be successful in my chosen creative path of singing and to travel the world doing that – not to be tethered to a job I don’t like, to pay a mortgage I don’t want in order to live permanently anywhere,” said New York musician Risa Branch. “I finally paid off my student loans. I want the freedom to be wherever I want to be,” Branch said. “If I did get the surplus funds to buy a house, I’d rent it out and use the investment to fund a more mobile lifestyle.” Hammond argued that Black millennials want equality, opportunity and freedom. “We want the same business and home loans, we want the same job offers, we want the same – everything,” she said. “I’m college-educated, well-read, and well-traveled. I’m a business owner and a homeowner, and even with all of that, I’m keenly aware that I am still very much an underdog,” Hammond continued. “Freedom means you don’t struggle financially or live paycheck-to-paycheck. Freedom means you’re able to relax sometimes and not worry about all the ways that you have to work to dispel racial myths and stereotypes.”

ly known as Obamacare, Democrats have also pushed a “Medicare-for-all” proposal that NPR noted has gained in popularity. Several Democratic presidential hopefuls are getting behind the idea, according to NPR which cited California Sen. Kamala Harris who said her aim would be to eliminate all private insurance. “Who of us has not had that situation, where you’ve got to wait for approval and the doctor says, well, ‘I don’t know if your insurance company is going to cover this,’” Harris said during a CNN Town Hall event. “Let’s eliminate all of that. Let’s move on,” she said. Harris was a co-sponsor of a 2017 bill written by Sen. Bernie Sanders, (I-Vermont), that would have created a national, single-payer health system, eliminating the private insurance system. Sens. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., both presidential hopefuls, also co-sponsored the Sanders Bill, according to NPR.

Everyone would get a Medicare card and doctors would have to sign annual agreements to participate. For Moore, that would be ideal, particularly for those who suffer with life-threatening illnesses like cancer. “The mere suggestion that it could be cancer was anathema to me because nobody ever wants to hear the C-word,” Moore said. “All of the while that I was going through the diagnosis and the care that I was getting, I thought about the number of people that I knew who die needlessly from cancer because they didn’t get early diagnosis.” Moore continued: “It’s our job as legislators to ensure that no American has to choose between seeking treatment & providing for their families. “I personally know people who marched into the emergency room two weeks before they died because they didn’t have health insurance. I am just a grain of sand on a beach.”

Moore Reveals Cancer Diagnosis

By Stacy M. Brown NNPA Newswire Correspondent
 Wisconsin Democratic Rep. Gwen Moore has made a strong and very personal case for lawmakers to keep the Affordable Care Act. In a televised interview, Moore revealed her cancer diagnosis and where she believes she’d be if it weren’t for former President Barack Obama’s signature piece of legislation which allows her to afford the treatments and necessary medication to fight the deadly disease. “If I had to pay $15,000 a month for this medicine, I’d be here writing my obituary perhaps instead of talking to you,” Moore told MSNBC in an interview this week. She said her oral medication, Imbruvica, helps to keep her in remission. Without the insurance coverage, she’d be on the hook for $15,000 per month. Prior to taking Imbruvica, Moore said she had intravenous therapy twice a month at a whopping $20,000. “The GOP is always talking about the costs of the ACA: the cost of protecting pre-existing conditions, the cost of essential health benefits, the cost of the individual mandate,” Moore said. “But what about the value of life? The lives of your kids? Your parents? That’s the core of this debate,” she said, adding that she’s “alive today because of comprehensive insurance that covers most” of the money in medication costs per month she now needs. First diagnosed last summer with small lymphocytic lymphoma – a non-Hodgkin lymphoma where the cancer originates in the lymphatic system – Moore said the disease is manageable because she caught it early and she takes her medicine every day. After her MSNBC appearance, Moore spoke before the House Ways and Means Committee in which members held a hearing on protecting those with pre-existing conditions – a major component of the Affordable Care Act which President Donald Trump and most Republicans have fought against. Moore and other Democrats, who’ve now taken control of the House, have said they want to reverse the GOP’s decision to take away the individual mandate in the health care law. A decision late last year by a Texas judge who ruled the individual mandate unconstitutional, is currently being appealed and Moore said she hopes Congress will act to protect the law. In their attempt to maintain the law that’s common-

Public Policy is Problematic for People of Color

“Once you get a felony conviction, your life is practically ruined based off of the current laws on the books in many states,” said nationallyrecognized civil rights attorney Benjamin L. Crump while speaking to attendees and members of the Black Press at the National Newspaper Publishers Association (NNPA) Mid-Winter Training Conference last week in Orlando. “It is as if you are walking dead, but they just haven’t given you the death certificate.”

By Jeffrey L. Boney NNPA Political Analyst According to the World Prison Brief, which is a unique database that provides free access to information about prison systems throughout the world, there are over 2 million people in prison and jails throughout the United States, which is approximately 0.66 percent of the country’s entire population. Out of those incarcerated individuals, more than 50 percent of them are detained or convicted for non-violent offenses and roughly 56 percent of them are Black. It is, and always has been, a huge issue. One of the primary issues is the money associated with mass incarceration. Mass incarceration is a multi-billion dollar business — the annual cost of incarcerations is over $87 billion dollars. Many of the people who have played a major role in ensuring that this economic engine remains intact are legislators and other elected officials at the federal, state and local levels. This is why voting matters and elections have consequences. Speaking to attendees and members of the Black Press at the National Newspaper Publishers Association (NNPA) Mid-Winter Training Conference last week in Orlando, nationally-recognized civil rights attorney Benjamin L. Crump spoke passionately about the need to have people in office who care about the rights of people of color through public policy. “Once you get a felony conviction, your life is practically ruined based off of the current laws on the books in many states,” said Crump. “It is as if you are walking dead, but they just haven’t given you the death certificate.” In looking at each state and county, legislators and

District Attorneys have the power to decide which rights they can strip away from people once they have been convicted of a felony. Of course, many of those rights continue to remain stripped away even after those individuals have served time for the criminal offense that they were convicted of. On the flip side, legislators and District Attorneys also have the power to decide which rights individuals can regain once they are released from prison and/or are no longer on probation. This is extremely important across counties and states in the United States, where, according to a study done by the Equal Justice Initiative in 2014, roughly 95 percent of the 2,437 elected state and local prosecutors in the U.S. in 2014 were White. The study went even further to show that although White men made up 31 percent of the population nationwide, approximately 79 percent of the elected prosecutors were White men, and 66 percent of the states that elected prosecutors had no African Americans working for them in those offices. Although the rights of formerly incarcerated individuals are slightly different from state to state, there are some common rights that are customarily taken away*. Federal law states that any person who is convicted of a crime that is punishable by a minimum of 12 months in prison, is prohibited from purchasing or owning a firearm, regardless of whether that person actually served time in prison or not. Of course, voting is extremely important and voting rights vary from state to state. The majority of states across the country deny convicted felons the right to vote, although there a few states

where convicted felons are still allowed to vote while they are in prison or jail. However, once a person is released from jail, the majority of states continue to deny formerly incarcerated individuals the right to vote until after they complete some form of probation. Even worse, there are a few states that prohibit formerly incarcerated felons from voting ever again in life. There are several other rights that are impacted, such as prohibiting formerly incarcerated individuals from serving on a jury, stripping away their ability to travel outside the country, impeding their ability to obtain gainful employment in certain professions, impacting their parental rights, making it difficult to receive public assistance and housing, and many other quality of life issues that make life in America so much more manageable. The prevailing culture within America’s criminal justice won’t change overnight, and it won’t change at all unless there is a conscious effort to advocate for that change. Crump challenged the Black Press to “go to any courtroom across America and sit in the back of the room” to observe the visibly apparent disparate treatment that people of color often experience on a day-to-day basis. Crump also expressed the importance of working with the Black Press to raise awareness and push for changes in the criminal justice system across America. “We have to stand up for our children and speak up for our children,” said Crump. “We are together in this. The Black lawyers, Black law enforcement officials, and my Lord, the Black Press, are needed more now than ever before.”

Northam Apologies for Racist College Photo By Stacy M. Brown NNPA Newswire Correspondent
 Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam released a statement on Friday apologizing for an uncovered racist photo from his 1984 East Virginia Medical School yearbook that depicts him and another man in blackface and in Ku Klux Klan garb. An accompanying quote under the photo reads: “There are more old drunks than old doctors in this world, so I think I’ll have another beer.” CBS News reported that it conducted further research, uncovering another page in Northam’s yearbook at the Virginia Military Institute that displays nicknames listed underneath his name, including the word “Coonman,” a known racial slur. The photo and CBS’ discovery have led some to call for Northam’s resignation. Democratic presidential candidates Kamala Harris of California and former Obama Administration official Julian Castro as well as NAACP President Derrick Johnson have each called for Northam’s immediate resignation. Virginia Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine also demanded Ralph Northam meeting with volunteers in that Northam step aside. “This causes pain in a state and a country where cen- Blacksburg, VA (2017). turies of racism have already left an open wound,” Kaine “But I want to be clear, I understand how this decision said in a statement. shakes Virginians’ faith in that commitment. “I hope the governor ….

Virginia Governor Ralph Northam apologized Friday for an offensive photo in his 1984 medical school yearbook page.

“That photo, and the racist and offensive attitudes it represents, does not reflect the person I am today, or the way that I have conducted myself as a soldier, a doctor, and a public servant,” Northam said.

“I am deeply sorry. I cannot change the decisions I made, nor can I undo the harm my behavior caused then and today. But I accept responsibility for my past actions, and I am ready to do the hard work of regaining your trust.”

NAACP Challenge to 2020 Census Preparations

The complaint alleges that unless the Census Bureau significantly improves its plans for 2020, the upcoming census will drastically undercount African Americans and other people of color across the country. This undercount will contribute to unequal political representation and reduced federal funding for communities of color.

Federal judge denies Census Bureau motion to dismiss suit over inadequate government preparations for the 2020 Census The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and its allies today won a major court ruling that allows them to proceed with a federal lawsuit challenging the government’s inadequate preparations for the 2020 Census. “[T]he census must be conducted in a way that will not thwart the goal of equal representation,” wrote U.S. District Judge Paul Grimm, in an opinion granting in part and denying a motion to dismiss brought by the Census Bureau. The ruling allows the case to proceed to discovery and potentially to trial. The suit,  NAACP v. Bureau of the Census, No. 8:18-Cv-00891-PWG, was filed last March in the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland by the NAACP, Prince George’s County (MD), the NAACP Prince George’s County Branch, and two county residents.  The complaint alleges that unless the Census Bureau significantly improves its plans for 2020, the upcoming census will  drastically undercount African Americans and other people of color across the country. This undercount will contribute to unequal political representation and reduced federal funding for communities of color. “It is imperative that the Census Bureau take steps immediately to minimize the undercount in communities of color and immigrant communities, especially given the

likely impact of the underfunded census,” said NAACP General Counsel Brad Berry. In his opinion, Judge Grimm emphasized the importance of ensuring adequate funding for census operations, especially given the recent 35-day government shutdown. “This ongoing state of uncertainty” makes it more likely that the Census Bureau “will be unprepared (in terms of funding, workforce, and testing) for the 2020 Census.” The NAACP and its partners brought this lawsuit because the ongoing underfunding and understaffing of the Census Bureau violates its legal obligation to conduct a full and fair census. As the plaintiffs explain in their complaint, the Bureau has severely cut back on door-to-door canvassing, community partnerships, and field infrastructure— all of which are essential to encourage participation from communities of color. The government has also cancelled crucial pre-census field tests, even as it attempts to use new technologies and implement a brand-new digitization initiative. “With fewer than 15 months to go before the 2020 Census, this decision comes at a critical time,” said Rachel Brown, a law student intern with the Yale Law School Rule of Law Clinic, counsel for the NAACP and other plaintiffs. “We look forward to holding the Census Bureau to its constitutional obligation to count everyone equally.” The plaintiffs are represented by the NAACP Office of the General Counsel, Jenner & Block, and the Yale Law School Rule of Law Clinic.

“I believe that we can build a country where no one is forgotten, no one is left behind, where parents can put food on the table. Where there are good paying jobs with good benefits in every neighborhood. Where our criminal justice system keeps us safe, instead of shuffling more children into cages and coffins. Where we see the faces of our leaders on television and feel pride, not shame,” said Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey, during a video announcing his bid for President of the United States.

Sen. Booker will join Sen. Harris, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), former Housing Secretary Julian Castro (D-Texas) and South Bend Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg, have all announced that they will run for the White House in 2020. Sen. Booker has already made stops in key primary states over the last few months. He now plans to travel more extensively as he joins the most diverse presidential field in American history.

Member: National Newspapers Publishers Association, Associated Press, Better Business Bureau Sen. Booker has already made stops in key primary states over the last few months. He now plans to travel more extensively as he joins the most diverse presidential field in American history.

By Lauren Victoria Burke NNPA Newswire Contributor Though much of the 2020 Election attention this week went to former Starbucks Coffee executive Howard Schultz, the end of the week held a surprise entry: Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey. It was widely expected that Sen. Booker would run, the former mayor of Newark with a high-flying social media presence and an affable personality has been rumored to be a contender for the White House for years. Booker, 49, is likely to project an upbeat positive tone at a time when President Donald Trump is winning comparisons to some of the worst presidents in U.S. history. If either Senators Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) or Booker win the White House, they would become the second African American president in history, after Barack Obama. Booker announced his candidacy via a video called “Rise.” The video focuses on many of the issues he confronted as Mayor of Newark such as housing and poverty. The video’s narrative features the New Jersey Senator affirming that he still lives in the inner-city Newark.  “I still live there today, and I’m the only senator who goes home to a low-income, inner city community. The first community that took a chance on me,” Booker says in the announcement video. “I believe that we can build a country where no one is forgotten, no one is left behind, where parents can put food on the table. Where there are good paying jobs with good benefits in every neighborhood. Where our criminal justice system keeps us safe, instead of shuffling more children into cages and coffins. Where we see the faces of our leaders on television and feel pride, not shame,” Booker continues.

Smashed in Memphis

[The guitar] will be placed temporarily in the National Museum of African American Music (NMAAM) in Nashville, where visitors can view this smashed guitar – with its neck and fretboard still intact – for themselves.

Jimi Hendrix guitar headed for National Museum of African American Music By George Tillman Special to The New Tri-State Defender Many years ago, I started a project to bring HIV and AIDS awareness to the Memphis community. In 1998, I coordinated a World AIDS Day awareness benefit and that’s where my journey to owning a piece of Jimi Hendrix’s guitar began. John Tigrett, the owner of Memphis’ Hard Rock Cafe, opened his doors so a community of Stax musicians and singers could put together a fundraiser for World AIDS Day that year. This is where I met Larry Lee, a guitarist who played with Jimi Hendrix, Al Green and many other great stars. And as fate would have it, we would meet again. This next meeting was happenstance as Larry happened to be living in the same rooming house as my girlfriend at the time. He called me over and said, “I want to give you something.” I said OK, and when he came out of the back room, he had something wrapped in this black towel, just as you see in this photo. I unwrapped the towel and saw a broken guitar. I asked, “What is this? Is this some kind of joke?” “No,” he replied. “You know whose guitar this is?” I told him no and then he said it was Jimi Hendrix’s guitar. I asked him if he played with Jimi Hendrix and when he said yes, I was shocked. Of course, I wanted to know more about how he ended up with the guitar all these years later. He said they were on stage playing and Jimi was

breaking up the guitars and breaking up the equipment and doing what he always does at the end of playing. Larry said the guitar broke and part of it hit him on the leg. After the show, he picked it up and kept it. I was amazed to hear this history and touched at the same time. To this day, I’ve never really talked about it for fear something would happen to it before I could share this story and precious artifact. Now it will be placed temporarily in the National Museum of African American Music (NMAAM) in Nashville, where visitors can view this smashed guitar – with its neck and fretboard still intact – for themselves. “Jimi Hendrix is one of the most important figures in American pop culture, not just American music,” said Dr. Steven Lewis, curator at NMAAM. “This guitar provides a physical reminder of the power of his music, his personality and his brand of self-expression that was as influential in the 1960s as it is today.” NMAAM, set to open this year, is envisioned as the only museum dedicated to educating, preserving and celebrating the influence African-Americans have had on music. I am happy to contribute to this endeavor. Along with the guitar, NMAAM will feature the guitar in its Crossroads Gallery along with other items of Jimi’s, vintage concert materials. George Tillman, a screenwriter and filmmaker, has been in the entertainment industry for 40 years.

Film Review:

Tika Sumpter in An Accessible Loss

An Acceptable Loss By Dwight Brown NNPA Newswire Film Critic Nothing about An Acceptable Loss screams, “Pay $12 bucks for me at the theater because I’m worth it.” This isn’t an artistic breakthrough (Roma). It doesn’t expand the thriller genre (A Quiet Place). The drama on view is never deep (Leave No Trace). The ensemble performances won’t win prestigious awards (The Favourite). The screenplay by writer/director Joe Chappelle (TV’s Chicago Fire, CSI: Miami, The Wire) pulls in some topical political themes, adds touches of suspense and revenge, but the storyline never amounts to anything extraordinary—and neither does the direction. Under the intense scrutiny of a theatrical film critique, the movie flounders. But looked at through the perspective of a smaller screen, its general intrigue will make it a better experience on-demand, streamed or on cable TV. Controversial ex-U.S. security advisor Elizabeth “Libby” Lamm (Tika Sumpter, Southside, Ride Along, Sparkle) becomes a visiting professor on a liberal college campus. Under her guidance, and at the insistence of the aggressive VPOTUS Rachel Burke (Jamie Lee Curtis, Halloween) and chief of staff Adrian (Jeff Hephner, Interstellar), a bomb was dropped during a war against terror and thousands of lives were lost. Libby is shunned by faculty members, abhorred by some in her class, but still, at least on the outside she remains poised and at peace with her actions. One student, Martin (Ben Tavassoli, Overlord), stalks and spies on her. Why? Libby is off the grid, writing her explosive memoirs in longhand in a series of composition books and not using a cell phone. Who is she trying to evade? Is someone else tracking her? Joe Chappelle models the Libby character on former Secretaries of Defense Robert McNamara and Donald Rumsfeld, architects of the Viet Nam and Iraq wars respectively. In hindsight, the former admitted to his blunder. The latter never took responsibility for a bogus war over weapons of mass destruction that didn’t exist. Chappelle starts with an engrossing premise with far-reaching political implications. As a TV series director,

his instincts are solid. As a theatrical filmmaker he’s unable to pan out his style and intuition onto a broader canvass. The tech crew doesn’t help his cause. Production design (Daniel B. Clancy), sets (Jamers Hartnett), costumes (Susan Kaufmann) and cinematography (Petra Korner) make what’s on view look like a B-movie. Nothing visually stands out. Nothing is memorable. The narrative weaves in and out, including a love affair, an allegiance between two antagonists and an assassination attempt. Those crafty devices are thwarted by a very surprisingly shallow performance by Jamie Lee Curtis, which makes all the scenes between Rachel and Libby seem hollow. Adrian’s feeble relationship with Libby would have been better left for a Cinemax late night movie; hard to believe they are really doing the do. Flubs in basic logic add more imperfections: Libby buys a safe to protect her manuscripts and puts it in her bedroom. In broad view! Anyone can see it. Wouldn’t a really smart former government official find a hiding place? As Libby is hounded by adversaries, your interest gets piqued just enough over 102 minutes to carry you to the very clever ending. It’s also helpful that Martin’s motivation isn’t clear until far along into the film, which further sustains your curiosity. Sumpter is quite beautiful and the camera loves her face. Unfortunately, the script doesn’t give her a wide range of deep emotions to play, so her slight paranoia and tepid defiance towards those who plot against her never takes the viewer to a place of extreme fear or anger. Ben Tavassoli, as Martin, has the benefit of being an enigma. You stick with his stealth character until he is ready to reveal his motives. Alex Weisman as Martin’s confused and suspicious roommate is perfectly animated. Clarke Peters (The Wire, Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri) is only in a few scenes as Libby’s dad, but is great. If you see An Acceptable Loss in a movie theater, you might regret the money you spent on a ticket. Watch it on TV or a mobile device and you may stay totally absorbed.

Recipe of the Week

Cheesy Enchiladas Hopefully by the time you read this your favorite team will have won the title. Superbowl Sunday for me is meant to eat one of my favorite meals which is Enchiladas. There hasn’t been a time yet that I make a pan of these and they last long because my family loves them. They are simple to make yet very rich in flavor, so let’s get to cooking. Ingredients 2 lbs. Ground beef  36 corn tortillas  1 can beef broth or 1 cube of beef Bouillon  2 tbsp of flour  1 large pan (or condense to whatever size or portion you may need) 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (or whatever kind you prefer) 1 small chopped onion 2 cloves of garlic  Cilantro (optional) Taco seasoning  Salt & pepper  Onion & garlic powder 2 large cans of enchilada sauce (I used Mild La Victoria)  Green onion Olives Instructions: (1). Brown ground beef and drain off fat. Add onions,

garlic, salt & pepper, cilantro and taco seasoning. Cook according to directions. You can also add some of your enchilada sauce. Once your meat filling is done set aside. (2). In a warm skillet (lightly oiled), sprinkle with flour allow the flour to brown but being careful not to burn because if this should happen, trust me you will have to start all over again. Whisk in the beef broth and continue to whisk until it becomes thick. Add in a little water at a time if the mixture is too thick. Pour in the enchilada sauce. (you will need to reserve some just in case you may need more for later) Once it has reached your consistency, set aside. (3). In a warm skillet (lightly oiled), begin adding the tortillas. (cook no longer than a minute on both sides because you will need them to be pliable enough for rolling) Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  (4). Spray pan with cooking spray. (5). Add filling to the tortillas and continue until all tortillas has been filled and rolled. Tip: Don’t want any meat then use pinto or black beans and cheese instead. (6). Once all has been poured over with prepared enchilada sauce mixture top with cheese, black olives, and green onions. (optional) (7).  Cover with foil (to prevent sticking spray foil with cooking spray).  Place in preheated oven for about an hour or so until cheese is bubbling. (8). Remove from oven and allow to sit for ten minutes (if you can) Sour cream goes well with these. Enjoy!
