Stone cold marketing ■ Selling alcohol to young African Americans BY WILLIAM COVINGTON OW CONTRIBUTOR

The former owner of the Payless Market in South Los Angeles, gleefully described how the Black community’s passion for malt liquor and his “unofficial grassroots advertising campaign” allowed him to significantly increase his store revenue within a few weeks and save his business. The store had a license to sell beer and wine, but to compete with liquor stores in the area, he happened upon the idea of painting on the front of his store a large sign that shouted “Cold Beer” (although thenCouncilman Mark Ridley-Thomas and community activist forced him to the remove it). He returned to the drawing board and put an old claw-foot bathtub filled with bottles of malt liquor under crushed ice in the middle of the store. The crude marketing ploy worked, and his malt liquor sales increased by 60 percent. Today, the marketing of alcoholic beverages to African Americans, especially their youth has become a lot more sophisticated. Drug, alcohol and tobacco counselor Tony Lavaughn Johnson, a former Shields for Families senior youth specialist, has heard it all. References to alcohol beverages have been noted in rap music lyrics throughout its existence. Given that listening to music is the one of the primary leisure-time activities of adolescents, along with texting, and the fact that most teenagers know nearly all of the lyrics to their favorite songs, music is one potential source from which young consumers of popular culture receive information about alcohol. Jay Z, Sean “P. Diddy” Combs and Ludacris are among the Hip Hop luminaries who have promoted alcohol, according to Johnson. Montell Jordan’s song, “This Is How We Do It” (1995) was in vogue particularly with gang members in the ’90s. Johnson said he would hold group therapy at Alcoholics Anonymous meetings locally and a lot of the clients would reminisce about how they would

hang out with fellow gang members and consume malt liquor on Friday nights, blasting the song while drinking 40 ounces, a reference to the 40ounce-size malt liquor bottles. This is how we do it. It’s Friday night, and I feel all right The party is here on the West side So I reach for my ’40, and I turn it up Designated driver take the keys to my truck Hit the shore ’cause I’m faded Honey’s in the street say, “Monty, yo we made it!” It feels so good in my hood tonight The summertime skirts and the guys in Kani All the gang bangers forgot about the drive-by You gotta get your groove on, before you go get paid So tip up your cup and throw your hands up And let me hear the party say I’m kinda buzzed, and it’s all because (This is how we do it) South Central does it like nobody does (This is how we do it) The song was a hit in the U.S and Europe for weeks, and Johnson also described how brewers would use it to market malt liquor to Blacks in France and Germany. American brewers in the past have used the Afro-German communities as test markets for their malt liquor, especially in Munich, Frankfurt and Cologne. Alfred “Coach” Powell, a drug counselor and author of the book, “Message in a Bottle,” writes that malt liquor is made from the very end of the brewing process and is known as beer scrap. He explained that some brewers have even injected menthol into the brewing process to make it more palatable. And it is known that low levels of formaldehyde are also used to control the fungi. Johnson feels young African Americans 12- to 20-years-old see far more alcohol ads on television and in magazines than youth in general, and this is confirmed by a report published last month by the Center on Alcohol Marketing and Youth at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. The report cited two key factors at play: many alcohol ads specifically target African Americans and African American youth who consume more media than youth overall. For example, African American youth watched 53 percent more television than youth in general in 2010, according to Nielsen data cited in the study. Despite the Johns Hopkins findings, young Blacks actually drink less than youth of other racial and ethnic groups. Researchers say this may be linked to factors such as poverty, social norms and religion which temper some of advertising’s impacts. But African Americans who drink seem to suffer more serious consequences, said David Jernigan, director of the Center on Alcohol Marketing and Youth, perhaps because they tend to have less access to healthcare and substance-abuse treatment, live in poorer neighborhoods

and are incarcerated more frequently. Alcohol consumption is linked to three leading causes of death among young African Americans—homicide, suicide and accidental injury. “There’s rationale for being extra careful,” said Jernigan, whose group receives funds from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and has put out dozens of reports on alcohol marketing to youths over the last decade. The findings suggest that young people’s substance use and aggressive behaviors may be related to their frequent exposure to music containing references to substance use and violence. A study conducted in 2006 called, “Music, Substance Use and Aggression” by Meng-Jinn Chen, Brenda A. Miller, Joel W. Grube and Elizabeth D. Waiters, states that music-listening preference, conversely, may reflect some personal predispositions or lifestyle preferences. There is also the possibility that substance use, aggression, and music preference are independent constructs that share common “third factors.” This intensifies the possibility for destruction when advertisers and culture exposes youth to drinking. Frank Coleman, senior vice president of the Distilled Spirits Council of United States, said the Center on Alcohol Marketing and Youth’s research on the topic is flawed. It “has repeatedly issued press releases saying the industry’s advertising is increasingly targeting youth,” he said, even as statistics show that underage drinking is declining. He pointed to a recent federal government survey showing that teenage drinking fell to a historic low in 2011, when only 25.1 percent of 12- to 20-year-olds reported using alcohol in the past month Jernigan’s study, however, stops short of claiming that advertisers are targeting Black youth. “I can’t call it targeting because targeting implies intent and I can’t prove intent,” the researcher said. Marketers’ messages are increasingly reinforced by Hip Hop culture, researchers at UC Berkeley reported in 2011. An analysis of rap lyrics showed 64 percent of the most popular songs released from 2002 to 2005 referenced alcohol. This marked a steep rise in such references. An earlier analysis of rap songs from 1994 to 1997 showed 44 percent contained alcohol references. Booze ads are also common in magazines read by Black Americans, said Lorreen Pryor, president of the Black Youth Leadership Project in Sacramento. “You keep flipping the pages and the (alcohol ads) are back to back.” The study comes amid efforts to ban alcohol advertising on public property in some cities. The Community Coalition, a local nonprofit, asked the Los Angeles City Council to ban alcohol ads on property such as bus shelters, and last year the company that manages the city’s bus benches agreed to disallow alcohol ads. Boston recently stopped alcohol advertising in public transit and advocates hope to extend the ban in other public areas. Minority youth frequently use public transportation and this would help shield them from alcohol ads, said Bruce Lee Livingston, executive director of Alcohol Justice, an industry watchdog. However, the new study suggests marketers are falling short on limiting youth exposure to alcohol ads. Young Blacks saw 32 percent more alcohol ads in magazines and 17 percent more on television than youth overall in 2009, researchers found. While African American youth were exposed to 26 percent fewer radio ads for alcohol than youth in general, they heard 32 percent more radio ads for hard liquor. In magazines, African American youth were 92 percent more likely to see ads for “alcopops”—cheap, sweet, fizzy alcoholic drinks that are of particular concern to anti-alcohol advocates because they appeal to youth. The Snoop Dogg—promoted Blast is a flavored alcoholic beverage sometimes called an alcopop, a colloquial term that describes certain flavored alcoholic beverages, including malt beverages, to which various fruit juices or other flavorings have been added. Others alcopops include Four Loko, Joose and Tilt. Alcohol advertising in magazines overall declined by nearly 20 percent between 2003 and 2008, researchers found, due likely to a general decline in magazine advertising. In contrast, cable television has seen a “major ramp-up” in alcohol ads, particularly for hard liquor, Jernigan said. The four largest television networks—ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC—do not advertise distilled alcohol. But African American youth saw 20 percent more ads for hard liquor than youth overall. “TV is going in the wrong direction,” Jernigan said. Members of the beer, wine and distilled spirits trade associations have agreed to avoid placing ads during TV programs with audiences made up of 28.4 percent or more people under age 21. Still, advocates

ond, the lead ant crosses barbed wire, which is not visible unless one pauses the tape to see it. This is another subliminal message that could infer prison or some type of barrier. Once the ants reach their colony the bottle is placed inside the opening, the drums stop and KC and the Sunshine Band’s get “Get Down Tonight”—“do a little dance, make a little love, get down tonight”—starts blaring. Ads aimed at White males portray a more subdued setting such as a sports bar or a living room while viewing a basketball or football game. But some of those ads also involve male silliness. A top beer-selling ad is the Most Interesting Man in the World commercial for Dos Equis, which is directed at Hispanic drinkers. Recently, Hispanic beer drinkers appeared to be the new frontier for brewers. Having the African American as major consumers of malt liquor, the industry is continuing to look for major growth in the U.S. market and are not about to ignore Latinos, who make up 16 percent of the U.S. population. As the Latino population grows, beer marketers are trying more nuanced ways of influencing this key segment. “They love beer,” says Jim Sabia, chief marketing officer for Crown Imports, which distributes such Mexican beers as Corona and Modelo. “Hispanics are 19 percent more likely to purchase beer than the rest of U.S. consumers.” On top of that, Hispanics will make up a large portion of the legal drinking-age population in the future.

from COVER STORY page 3 say these voluntary standards are poorly enforced. “The self-regulation pledge has not worked,” said Bruce Livingston, executive director/CEO of Alcohol Justice, a watchdog group that polices the alcohol advertising industry. The group would like to see government regulation of the industry. While advertisers often say they can’t keep youth from seeing messages that are intended for adults, Jernigan isn’t buying it: “The industry knows quite precisely what they are doing.” African American culture isn’t targeted by high-end alcohol companies. The producers of Cristal, an exclusive brand of champagne, were apparently not overjoyed when rap artists began mentioning the brand in lyrics. In an interview with The Economist in 2006, managing director Frederic Rouzaud of Louis Roederer, the maker of the wine, said he viewed the attention from rappers with “curiosity and serenity.” Asked if he thought the association would harm the brand, he replied, “That’s a good question, but what can we do? We can’t forbid people from buying it. I’m sure Dom Pérignon or Krug would be delighted to have their business.” The alcohol brewers have always produced elixirs that target a specific group, which is how they base their advertising strategy. When one sees ads targeting African Americans they are more often than not partying in the back yard or the club holding bottles of beer. There was one print ad that ran in Ebony and Jet magazines showing a Black couple embracing, and the beautiful female isn’t wearing a wedding ring and makes eye contact with the reader. The caption reads, “Life is good.” The ad, whose target is African American females, is a typical form of subliminal marketing. In 1996, a beer commercial won a Cleo Award for best commercial of the year. The commercial has Black ants carrying a bottle of beer across a desert-type landscape while African drums are playing.

— THIS IS THE FIFTH IN A SERIES OF OCCASIONAL STORIES ON LATINOS WHO SUPPORT BARACK OBAMA —

Rep. Linda Sanchez a staunch supporter of the president ■ Represents Lynwood, Cerritos, Lakewood, La Mirada, Whittier BY MANNY OTIKO OW CONTRIBUTOR

Rep. Linda Sanchez is the sixth of seven children born to Mexican immigrants in the city of Orange. She worked her way through college as an English as a Second Language instructor, later graduated from UC Berkeley and received her juris degree from UCLA Law school. She specialized in labor law and then went to work in the labor movement as a compliance officer with both International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and the National Electrical Contractors Association. Since 2003, she has represented California’s 39th Congressional District, which includes Lynwood, Cerritos, Lakewood, La Mirada, and Whittier. She serves alongside her older sister, Rep. Loretta Sanchez from Orange County, the only such sister pair ever in Congress. She serves on the House Judiciary Committee, the House Ethics Committee (where she is the ranking member) and on Veteran’s Affairs Committee. Sanchez is a strong supporter of President Barack Obama. Unlike many recent supporters of the president, Rep. Sanchez has been on his side since the early days. “I was an early supporter. I endorsed then-Sen.

Obama in January 2008,” Sanchez said. During the early days of the Obama campaign, Sanchez’s duties involved participating in press conferences and stomping for the candidate from Chicago in battleground states. The Los Angeles legislator is still zealous in her support for Obama. “I recently put out an op-ed in support of all that President Obama has done for the Latino community,” she said. Dated Sept. 17, 2012, it read in part: “President Obama has stood by Latino communities and set forth a clear road to recovery for Latino families and businesses. He has enacted policies that give hard-working Latinos a hand up, not a hand out. Unfortunately, despite the clear direction the President has given our nation, Mitt Romney has not only misrepresented the President’s record, he has yet to offer one idea that would create good-paying, stable jobs for the Latino middle class. “So in today’s speech, we’re guessing that Mitt Romney won’t discuss the 18 small business tax cuts that President Obama passed in his first term or the $3.8 billion lent to Latino entrepreneurs to open new businesses and develop currently existing ones. He won’t discuss the over 80,000 Latino jobs that were saved when the president rescued the American auto industry from extinction. And he won’t recognize President Obama’s clear, achievable plan for continued job creation and restore middle-class security for hard-working Americans. In

fact, with 50 days to go in this election, Romney has yet to offer a plan to create good-paying middle-class jobs. What we do know is that in the next year alone, the president’s plan will create 2 million more jobs than Romney’s policies would.” As a Latina, Sanchez is acutely aware of the issues facing her community, which she says are not unlike the problems facing many other Americans. “The issues that are most important to Latinos are the same issues that are important to most Americans—continuing our economic recovery, making sure our children get a quality education, ensuring that people entering the workforce have the skills and the job training to succeed, creating good-paying jobs in this country rather than shipping them overseas, and ensuring that our families have access to affordable and quality healthcare,” she said. “The president has a solid record on these issues because he’s been fighting for middleclass families since being sworn into office.” The Obama administration has passed several pieces of legislation that help the middle class such as saving thousands of jobs in the auto industry; the Affordable Health Care Act, also known as Obamacare; passing the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, and reforming and expanding college grants and loans. However, the president also promised immigration reform, and failed to get the DREAM Act passed. This was an issue brought up in a recent media appearance on Telemundo.

Linda Sanchez

Obama responded by saying that he was confident that after the election some Republicans would come over to his side and help pass comprehensive immigration legislation. Also, Obama signed an executive order that allows some children brought to this country illegally to apply for permanent residency. Sanchez says that the Latino community is solidly behind Obama. According to a recent national Telemundo/NBC News/Wall Street Journal, poll 70 percent of Latinos plan to support the president. “I would say that he enjoys stronger support from Latinos this year as compared to 2008,” Sanchez said, which agrees with an earlier assessment by Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. “As President Obama continues to fight to create jobs and help the economic recovery, I would expect him to enjoy even more Latino support.”

Second police department Crenshaw students talk with starts fund for shooting victims leaders from UC system ■ Hawthorne follows pattern of Inglewood officers CITY NEWS SERVICE

Efforts to assist survivors of a shooting rampage that killed a father and his young son and left three other members of their Inglewood family wounded gained momentum Tuesday with a second police department announcing a fund to benefit the victims. Filimon Lamas, 30, and his 4-year-old son were killed Saturday when suspect Desmond John Moses, their 55-year-old neighbor, opened fire in their home then set his own house ablaze, police said. Lamas' wife Gloria Jimenez, 28, and their 7-yearold daughter remained hospitalized on Monday. Jimenez, who was shot in both legs, was in good condition at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. Their 7-year-old daughter, who suffered a gunshot wound to the chest, was in fair condition at Mattel Children's Hospital UCLA, according to police and hospital officials. Their 6-year-old son was shot in

the pelvis and is now out of the hospital, while their 8-year-old son escaped injury. Authorities said Moses, a licensed security guard, opened fire around 4 a.m. Saturday in the home that Jimenez and Lamas shared with their four children in the 4900 block of West 99th Street. A body believed to be that of Moses was found Saturday night, a .38-caliber revolver in hand, in the smoldering ruins of his home. He ``had what appeared to be a gunshot wound to the head,'' said Inglewood police Lt. James Madia. A positive identification by the Los Angeles County coroner's office was pending. Moses blamed the family for the eviction notice he had received from their landlord, according to police. Police said he wore a painter's mask when he attacked and had body armor on when he was found. Lamas, who co-owned Chips restaurant in Hawthorne, according to published reports, was

Carson passes motion to establish a day for Dymally ■ May 12 would honor the late congressman BY MERDIES HAYES

■ College is for you, officials tell them BY RICARDO VAZQUEZ OW GUEST CONTRIBUTOR

More than 100 Crenshaw High School students and parents had the opportunity to hear directly from UCLA admissions and financial aid officials and to get personal advice on achieving their college dreams at a special Oct. 22 assembly and resource fair at the South Los Angeles campus. The event was part of Achieve UC, a University of California systemwide initiative designed to inspire students from historically underserved high schools to aim for and apply to college and to equip them with the information and resources they need to get there. “No matter your race, no matter where you come from, no matter how much money you have, college is for you,” Youlonda Copeland-Morgan, UCLA’s associate vice chancellor for enrollment management, told the crowd in her keynote speech. Copeland-Morgan, herself a Crenshaw High graduate and first-generation college student, challenged the young people to dream big and envision themselves as college graduates. But she reminded them that it will require hard work. “I’m not going to candy-coat it for you,” she said. “At UCLA, our expectations are high—very high. But the hard work and effort you are putting into school right now will pay off, because a college education is the surest pathway to opportunity and to full participation in the American Dream.” Since its launch on Oct. 18, Achieve UC has brought chancellors and senior leadership from every UC campus as well as the UC Office of the president to high schools across the state, reaching more than 10,000 students. The effort gives students the chance to meet directly with UC advisers who can help

explain application requirements, assess students’ preparedness for college and reassure them that there is a spot in the UC system for any qualified person who wishes to attend. UCLA Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Janina Montero and Director of the UCLA Financial Aid Office, Ronald Johnson, were also on hand at Crenshaw to offer advice and encouragement. Johnson reassured students that his job is to assist families in every way possible so that finances do not become a barrier to college, particularly for low- and middle-income students. In addition to Cal Grants and federal Pell Grants, Johnson said, the University of California has a program called the Blue and Gold Opportunity Plan, which guarantees that students won’t have to pay a penny of tuition if they qualify for financial aid and their family income falls below $80,000 a year. Following the presentations by the UCLA speakers, students and parents had an opportunity to ask the officials questions on a variety of topics, ranging from the depth and breadth of majors offered at UCLA to the number of student clubs on campus. The event also featured a college resource fair that included representatives from UCLA, UC Santa Cruz and several academic preparation programs.

One of the highlights of the Oct. 16 City Council meeting in Carson was the passage of a motion to establish May 12 as Mervyn Dymally Day in the city. Introduced by City Manager David Biggs, the resolution honors the late 37th-District congressman for his “career and contributions to the public sector, and the communities he represented.” In other matters, Rep. Laura Richardson (D-37th District), on hand to deliver her annual legislative update to the Council, was pressed by Mayor Jim Dear regarding funding for public works projects, particularly a new pedestrian bridge at 213th Street traversing the Dominguez Waterway. The elimination of congressional “earmarks,” however, may delay this funding request. “We did not have earmarks available at the time of the request for construction of a new bridge,” Richardson explained, saying she may consider writing Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood to request the $5 million needed. Richardson suggested that Carson may want to band with other nearby cities to nominate a representative to the Southern California Association of Governments, or city officials could encourage local membership to the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transit Authority board in order to secure more funding for transportation

She helped secure $1 million for the measure that promotes the safe/successful reintegration of criminal offenders into the community upon their release. The money will be split evenly between Carson and Inglewood. Briefly, the funds will help provide employment services, substance abuse treatment, housing and mentoring (for young adult and juvenile offenders) all designed to reduce the rate of recidivism.

MARYLAND Black Classic Press has announced the release of the book, “A Lie of Reinvention: Correcting Manning Marable’s Malcolm X.” The new collection of essays is a critical response to Marable’s biography, “Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention,” which was controversially acclaimed as the late scholar’s magnum opus and awarded a Pulitzer Prize this past spring. Though lauded by many, Marable’s book was also debated and denounced by others as a flawed biography full of conjecture and errors and lacking in new factual content. In Black Classic Press’ “A Lie of Reinvention,” editors Jared A. Ball and Todd Steven Burroughs lead a group of established and emerging Black scholars and activists who have taken a clear stance that “A Life of Reinvention” is a political reshaping—a contradiction and a distortion of the life and times of Malcolm X.

which will curtail the amount of money a city can receive from assessment fees. Local governments rely increasingly on other revenue tools to finance local services, notably assessments, property-related fees and a variety of general-purpose taxes. The intent of Proposition 218 is to ensure all taxes/charges on property owners be subject to voter approval. Carson, like many local cities, has increased some assessment fees in order to restore a dwindling city budget. This money would be restricted if Proposition 218 is enacted. Also, local governments will be required to provide notice to affected property owners of any new rate hikes. The Los Angeles County Sheriff ’s Department reported that a $150,000 grant from Carson has provided dividends in terms of crime reduction. Robberies and burglaries are down 17 percent and 55 percent, respectively.

Practical Politics ■ The presidential debate: a quick glance BY DAVID L. HORNE, PH.D. OW CONTRIBUTOR

OK. The third and final presidential debate came and went Monday night. Score: Obama-2, Romney-1. The president did not trounce the challenger in this last get-together, as he did in debate No. 2, but he scored at least three intellectual knockdowns in this last debate, mainly over foreign policy, and won convincingly, if not by a knockout. The challenger’s strategy seemed to be box, weave and clinch for dear life, as Mr. Romney surprisingly agreed with the president on almost every issue. Intellectually, this debate was roughly reminiscent of the Michael Spinks-Mike Tyson heavyweight championship bout of the 1990s, with Spinks, as the challenger, visibly shaking in his boots even at the fight’s introduction by the ring announcer. Mr. Romney appeared similarly nervous and uncomfortable from the start of the debate, ceding the president’s command of the foreign policy subject to be discussed. Once the Spinks-Tyson bout began, Spinks tried to box and clinch, but Tyson would have none of it, and the champion knocked Spinks out in the first round. Mr. Romney, apparently, had decided he would

The Racial Divide ■ Obama, Romney: Please play the race card BY ORSON AGUILAR EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, THE GREENLINING INSTITUTE

As the presidential campaign approaches the home stretch, it’s time for President Obama and challenger Mitt Romney to play the race card. I’m serious. We need a healthy discussion of race in America, and we aren’t getting it. What we’ve gotten so far from the candidates is, frankly, pathetic. The Romney campaign has put out misleading ads about welfare that carefully tiptoe around race while playing on common White misperceptions about Blacks and welfare. Some Democrats have complained, but have added little that was constructive to the discussion. And from the president, we’ve heard … almost nothing. That may be what’s most surprising. In 2008, when the controversy over the Rev. Jeremiah Wright threatened his campaign, Obama gave an eloquent speech about race. But since he took office, and most noticeably during the current campaign, his silence has been eerie and disheartening. We need better than this from the men who wish to lead our nation. We need constructive dialogue about issues that both major-party candidates have ignored.

not be publicly embarrassed like that, and immediately started agreeing with the president’s positions in response to the moderator’s first questions, from the decision to do a surgical strike to get Bin Laden, to the president’s Middle East policy in general, and how to handle the China problem. Mr. Romney did such ultimate flip-flops in this debate that the president had to remark that Mr. Romney demonstrated an incapacity to take a firm position on any issue, that he was all over the map. That, said the president, was not allowed in a commander-in-chief, who always has to be clear and unequivocal to the American military and both to American allies and enemies. Sending mixed messages in the international arena was dangerous to American interests. The president said that when parsing together the majority of Mr. Romney’s positions over the last 18 months or so, including his various campaign ads, Mr. Romney was not consistent on anything except mimicking the persona of a salesman who’d say anything he thought the customer wanted to hear in order to close a deal. In a president, said Mr. Obama, that was truly a fundamental flaw, and it would come back to haunt Mr. Romney, if he actually won on Nov. 6. Mr. Romney, in his final summation in the debate, even made an appeal for peace on earth and good will to all men as if he were a peacenik of some sort, completing his Halloween masquerade impersonating a serious presidential contender. Commentators after the debate said Mr. Romney appeared to be trying to woo more women voters with that performance, but the FOX News folks generally lambasted Mr. Romney for straying so far

For example, recent data from the Census Bureau show that 48 years after the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the racial wealth gap not only continues, it’s growing. For every dollar of wealth a White family owns, the median Asian family has about 63 cents, the median Latino family has seven cents and the median Black family has less than a nickel. People of color are less likely than Whites to own their own homes—another gap that is growing, not shrinking—and have been hurt worst by the foreclosure crisis. Why is this, Mr. President? How will you address it, Mr. Romney? Americans of all races deserve to hear from the candidates as to why they believe this is the case, and what they would do about it. No bland generalities, please, and no carping about the other side “playing the race card” if you don’t have the guts to talk about race honestly. Both candidates also need to explain how they would heal the racial and ethnic divisions in our country, divisions that seem to be growing. Last year, The Greenlining Institute analyzed data from the American National Election Panel Survey, the leading academic survey of U.S. political attitudes, and found that White and Black Americans live in almost different worlds. Fifty-nine percent of African Americans saw “a lot” of racial discrimination in U.S. society, compared to just 16 percent of Whites. While a solid majority of Blacks felt the federal government treats Whites better than Blacks, only 9 percent of Whites felt that way. Look at the stark racial and gender divide in the presidential poll numbers. One candidate seems to be the candidate of White men and the other the choice of women and people of color.

Moral Combat ■ The spectator sport of Black women bashing BY SIKIVU HUTCHINSON OW CONTRIBUTOR

In the 1990s, The O.J. Simpson murder trial polarized America and highlighted domestic violence as a national cause célèbre. At the center of the storm was Simpson’s wife, the blond Orange County-bred Nicole Brown Simpson, who’d suffered years of domestic abuse by an NFL legend deified as a pop culture god. After O.J. Simpson was acquitted of murdering Brown Simpson, White America wanted his scalp. Nicole was the perfect victim, the beautiful tragic heroine who died too young at the hands of a savage. The trial of the century hinged on redeeming a White woman’s honor and bringing her Negro killer to justice. Brown Simpson was grieved globally, transformed into a symbol of the deadliness of intimate partner violence and martyr of a legal systemsignified by the “dumb” biased Black female jury that acquitted Simpson run amok. The underside of the verdict and the valorization of Nicole Brown Simpson was the disreputable Black female abuse victim. Each year thousands of Black women are shot, stabbed, stalked, and brutalized in crimes that never make it on the national radar. Black women experience intimate partner violence at a rate of 35 percent higher than do White women. Intimate partner vio-

Yes on 34 ■ Death penalty ineffective and wasteful BY DARRYL STALLWORTH FORMER ALAMEDA COUNTY DEPUTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY

As a prosecutor, I tried dozens of murder cases, but all it took was one death penalty trial to convince me that the death penalty is wasteful, ineffective, and broken beyond repair. I support Proposition 34 to replace the death penalty with life in prison without parole. I know that a “Yes on 34” means justice that works—for everyone in California. As deputy district attorney for Alameda County, I was given a career-making case calling for execution of a young man involved in a bloody crime spree in Oakland. I proudly accepted the chance to send him to death row, but as the trial went on, his abusive and violent childhood was exposed. I learned that the crimes he committed mirrored ones he had experienced as a child. What once seemed like a simple case became more complicated and I saw that his violence was part of a larger picture of the violence he had grown up with and witnessed. I carried out my job and argued that he be given a death sentence, but I was no longer certain what would be accomplished by it. Eventually, the jury recommended life in prison without parole. Although I lost, I felt justice was done because he

lence is a leading cause of death for Black women, yet they are seldom viewed as proper victims and are rarely cast as total innocents. This is the backdrop to the tale of a group of White high school students in New York who thought it would be cool to don blackface and reenact the 2009 beating of pop star Rihanna by Chris Brown at a pep rally. Like the gleefully bloodthirsty White audiences that gathered to view 20th-century lynchings, there has always been a robust market for White consumption of Black pain. A big part of the White audience’s glee came from not seeing Rihanna as a proper victim. For White Middle America, intimate partner violence is only funny as a spectator sport if the person being beaten is viewed as other. From the rightwing’s Moynihanesque propaganda on Black welfare queen matriarchs to recent abortion-as-Black-genocide messaging, Black women’s bodies are fair game for institutionalized acts of violence, terrorism, and control. So for a lily-White school to find the brutal beating of a Black woman hilarious is par for the course in a misogynist White supremacist culture that deems Black women less than human. There is a deep connection between the current backlash against human rights for women and the White kids’ pep rally. During the recent presidential debate, gender justice issues were reduced to hollow rhetoric about equal pay. Mitt Romney prattled on about having “binders full of women” while President Obama tried to link the provisions of the Affordable Care Act with improving employment opportunities and equal pay for working women. Although Obama rattled off a few vital health and family-planning services provided by Planned

was no longer a threat to society. He would spend the rest of his life behind bars—just like every person in California sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole since 1977. Keeping him off death row, where he would get special housing and an expensive legal team, also saved taxpayers $1 million. After that case, I stopped seeking the death penalty. I now understand that the death penalty is an ineffective and wasteful response to the complex problem of violent crime. I know that the death penalty isn’t preventing crime, because I was saw plenty of other people go through the cycle of violence—experiencing painful tragedies in their lives and subsequently not caring about the consequences of their actions. We waste huge amounts of money on death row, rather than intervening before people get caught up in violence. Our limited resources would be better spent on programs that focus on stopping violence before it starts, such as preventing child abuse and drug addiction. We also should invest in solving crimes to keep our families safe. The solve rate for violent crimes in California is shockingly low. Every year, 46 percent of murders and 56 percent of reported rapes go unsolved. Murder cases with African American and Latino victims are even less likely to be solved, and yet we spent $130 million a year to prop up this expensive failure when we have a useful alternative with life in prison without parole. As it stands, we are on track to spend $1 billion over the next five years on the death penalty, even though only 13 people have been executed in California out of 900 death sentences since this 1978.

Practical Politics from OPED page 8 from the conservative pathway in the debate. There has also been little evidence that what he said attracted any more female voters. This was a very strange final debate, when one thinks about it. The president, however, for his part, brought his A-game again to the table and amply demonstrated that he is and should remain the commander-inchief. He dominated the discussion with intelligence, clarity and wit. If the old truism is still operable that the most dangerous man in America is an educated Black man, Mr. Obama is a heavyweight indeed, and had no peer in that last debate. He well-articulated in a direct way his vision for the next four years— something he had to accomplish in that gathering— and it made both logical and common sense to the 60 million viewers. The instant poll of undecided

Yes on 34 from OPED page 8 I can tell you that is never going to change, and certainly not without pouring even more money into a broken system when our state is nearly broke. The death penalty is staggeringly wasteful, and it is wrong to spend this kind of money on people who are already locked up for life. We should be spending this money on schools, programs for youth, crime labs, and technology to help us find and prosecute the criminals that are still at large. Finally, there’s the problem of innocence. Innocent people have been put on death row and innocent

Moral Combat from OPED page 8 Parenthood, the GOP assault on abortion rights went unmentioned. Violence against women comes in many forms, and by ramming through law after law of draconian anti-abortion, fetal homicide, and “personhood” policies through state legislatures nationwide the GOP has become the foremost lynch mob of civil rights. As the poorest, least compensated women in the workforce, women of color suffer disproportionately from the dismantling of reproductive healthcare. But they are also brutalized by both parties’ promotion of corporate handouts, tax cuts for the wealthy, and denigration of social welfare programs that specifically target poor and low-income families. Yet, violence against women of color is so far outside of the radar of social justice organizations, much less the context of mainstream politics, that it even elicits little outrage among many young women of color. Over the past few years, whenever I have classroom discussions about the Chris Brown/Rihanna incident students roll their eyes and snort in exasperation. Some girls dismiss the issue as an endless rehash. More insidiously, others express the view that

voters taken immediately after the debate gave Mr. Obama a 53 percent to 23 percent edge, and he led in every other poll taken that measured favorability, who could most be trusted in tight situations, and who looked most comfortable as commander-inchief. What now? In virtually every ancillary measurement, President Obama is the leading man for the presidency. With both candidates now back to the traveling campaign-stop grind, focusing intently on Ohio, Virginia, Florida, Wisconsin, and a few other states, the battle has been rejoined for handfuls of votes in disparate places. According to the calculations of those who’ve covered tight presidential races before, the candidate who wins Ohio and Virginia will win the presidency. Unless the Republican dirty voting tricks prevail, Ohio, Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania will almost certainly be won by President Obama. If that occurs, or even if only onehalf of that occurs, it will be lights out for Mr. Romney’s chances. The president will have accumulated more than the 270 electoral votes required to

So, the president’s campaign team now has to merely maintain the momentum achieved, not make any serious gaffes, and enjoy the victory on Nov. 6. Let no one fool you that your individual vote does not count. It does. Every vote counts. The winner of the popular vote in each state—part of a winner-take-all process—gets all of that state’s electoral votes, whether the win is by one vote or by thousands.

people have been executed. Most recently, a 2012 report found that Carlos DeLuna was executed because of mistaken identity. DeLuna had the bad fate of looking like the guilty man, also named Carlos. Experts can tell you that this problem is very common, especially when people are identifying a person of another race. None of the evidence that could have exonerated DeLuna was considered by police or the prosecution, and the likely brutal murderer went free. That is the ironic thing: because prosecutors were spending enormous amounts of time and money putting someone on death row, they actually let the real killer go free.

Rihanna was somehow complicit in her own beating. She must have done something, she must have hit him first, she must have provoked it in some way with her mouth, attitude, body is the typical blamethe-victim refrain. Not seeing themselves portrayed as worthy of human dignity, respect, and value has inured them to the unrelenting violence of explicitly anti-Black antifemale media images. According to a Pitzer College study, girls who are consistently exposed to “sexist violent rap videos were more accepting of teen dating violence.” Training young women of color to come to voice, to identify the normalized violence that they experience on a daily basis, is one of the biggest challenges of feminists of color organizing. Critiquing the pep rally incident, my Women’s Leadership Project students all agreed that the brutal beating of a Taylor Swift, a Britney Spears or even a Nicole Brown Simpson wouldn’t fly as spectator sport at a Black high school.

The following are OW’s descriptions, analyses and recommendations for measures on the Nov. 6 ballot.

MEASURE A ■ County of Los Angeles Appointed County Assessor BY CYNTHIA E. GRIFFIN OW MANAGING EDITOR

Measure A is an advisory vote to the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors answering the question: Do you support seeking to change the California Constitution and the Los Angeles County Charter to make the position of Los Angeles County Assessor an appointed position instead of an elected position? In previous elections, similar questions have elicited a resounding “no” from voters.

MEASURE B

MEASURE J

■ County of Los Angeles Safer Sex in the Adult Film Industry Act

■ Traffic Relief and Rail Expansion Ordinance

BY CYNTHIA E. GRIFFIN OW MANAGING EDITOR

Among the requirements of this measure are that producers in the adult film industry pay a fee to obtain a Public Health Department permit in order to make adults films in the county, and that all performers engaging in anal or vaginal intercourse during the making of such films wear a condom. Fees will be used to underwrite the cost of enforcement. Because credible scientific studies have shown that performers in adults films are far more likely to contract sexually transmitted diseases and then pass them on to the general public, supporters of this measure say this industry should be monitored more closely. They also say that because most adult film performers utilize public health facilities, the cost of treating the diseases is primarily borne by county taxpayers. On the other hand, opponents to Measure B say the proposed law would destroy the adult film industry in the county and impose new regulations at a time when the government is struggling financially. Additionally, opponents contend that if this measure passes, fewer adult film producers would apply for permits. Measure B, they say, is an unnecessary attempt to force people to engage in healthier sexual habits.

OW RECOMMENDATION: YES

BY CYNTHIA E. GRIFFIN OW MANAGING EDITOR

Measure J, sponsored by the Metropolitan Transit Authority, seeks to extend the half-cent sales tax (retail use and transaction tax) voters approved in 2008 (as Measure R) for another 30 years. Proceeds will be used to improve freeway traffic flow, accelerate completion of the county’s comprehensive transportation system, fix pot holes, repair streets and synchronize traffic signals in local communities. Supporters of Measure J say it will create thousands of jobs in the county over the next decade by speeding up local highway and transit projects. During the 30-year period 410,000 jobs are expected to be created and 260,00 will be accelerated. The measure would also speed up the completion of light rail, subway and airport connection projects so that they are finished in 13 rather than 27 years. Proponents also say the measure will facilitate improved traffic flow on 12 local freeways, including the 10, 110, 405 and 605. They say there is also a provision in the measure to speed up the earthquake repair of aging bridges, tunnels and overpasses in the county, and some of

the funds are expected to be used to keep bus fares low for seniors, students and the disabled. Opponents to Measure J, call it a deeply flawed, inequitable and ill-timed measure that is classic baitand-switch. They also argue that the measure relies on funding that is not guaranteed for some projects—for example the Green Line to LAX which can not be built without outside funding. They also say there is no money to connect rail to the Long Beach, Ontario, Bob Hope or Palmdale airports, as Measure J promises. Opponents also argue that no new jobs will be created by the measure that wouldn’t have been created under Measure R. The measure is inequitable say opponents because some county residents pay taxes until 2069 that will never be invested in their communities. Locally, the Bus Riders Union calls Measure J a blank check for Metro to continue its war on L.A. bus systems and bus riders. The Bus Riders Union charges that only 20 percent of Measure R revenue is set aside for the operation of current bus service, while up to 70 percent is available for expansion and construction of rail with no sustainable plan for current or future rail. Damien Goodmon, chair of the Crenshaw Subway Coalition and Fix Expo Campaign, is concerned that if Measure J passes, Metro says it still would not have enough money to add a station in Leimert Park Village or take the LAX line underground for the 11 blocks it travels through one of the Black community’s busiest regions.

RECOMMENDATION: NO

New homes along the Via The VIA 425 apartment complex in Carson has opened with hopes that this ultra-modern residential complex will encourage even more revitalization of this busy, mixed-use stretch of Carson Street at Grace Avenue. Once a vacant lot prone to weeds, loitering and litter, the $24-million development features 65 new medium-income apartment homes for families earning up to 60 percent of the area median income (about $69,000 annually). The complex has a 3,000-square-foot community center, which was included to host various social services, after-school programs and adult educational classes. There is a computer room, a fitness room, a children’s play area and laundry facilities. VIA 425 is a major positive step towards achieving the city’s vision for Carson Street,” said Carson Mayor Jim Dear. “The development provides first-rate affordable housing opportunities for Carson families, while also creating a vibrant and inviting street environment to enliven a key artery of our city.”

She had a ninth-grade education, was married at 17 and widowed early. In 1938, she purchased at $22 bus ticket and left Arkansas for California. In Los Angeles, she joined Mount Corinth Baptist Church, and a friend found her employment as a housekeeper at thirtythree cents an hour. She managed to save enough money to purchase her parents a home in Arkansas. In 1941, she married Howard Haynes. The two purchased a home in the city. The couple had no children of their own, but they opened their home to foster children. Her husband died in 1949. She united with New Greater Hope Baptist Church on Sept. 14, 1997, and celebrated her 100th birthday there. She is survived by a daughter, Barbara Franzone, four grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.

The Business Mind ■ Jack out of the box BY SHAUNE B. ARNOLD, ESQ. BUSINESS STRATEGIST

Many of my clients have asked me over the years how they can best bring investors into their companies. As a threshold matter, I make sure they understand the importance of following the securities registration exemption guidelines set forth by the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) for approaching investors and offering those investors stocks, membership interests, or other securities in a business. The SEC’s regulations do allow for a very small amount of carefully considered creative financing in the public offering space. A creative financing opportunity recently presented itself that worked wonders for my client, Jack, the owner of a small, privately-held information technology firm. Jack had struggled for quite some time looking for an investor to infuse much-needed capital into his business to help complete the development of some new, innovative technology. The challenge was that Jack’s company was an unknown entity in the marketplace. Neither banks nor individual investors wanted to take that chance while the banking markets were recently in deep distress. Jack met a potential investor with a deep pocket at a networking event, and came to me to help him

figure out a way to do business with the investor. Jack, the potential investor, and I sat down with an underwriter and devised a “reverse IPO.” In this situation, Jack’s young, vibrant company that held innovative technology would merge with a publicly traded technology company that formerly enjoyed a stellar reputation in the marketplace, but which had been swept overboard during the dot com bust of the late 1990s. That company went from being heavily traded on the New York Stock Exchange during the dot com boom, to being barely traded on the Overthe-Counter markets (commonly known as penny stock traded on the pink sheets) after it all came crashing down. Jack sold his company, new technology and all to a newly formed corporation, and the ailing public company did the same. The new corporation was then infused with the investor’s cash and cash from a bevy of additional investors. In this way, life was breathed into the resulting company, and the two old companies each ceased to exist. The investors each then purchased blocks of stock in the new corporation for significantly less money than the public would pay later on. The underwriter then guided the release of the newly formed company into the marketplace with an initial public offering. This caused yet another wave of capital to pour into the new company from the public. They now had plenty of cash to complete the development of Jack’s newest technology, and everyone’s stocks increased significantly in value. Shaune B.

Memorial services for city’s first Black assistant fire chief ■ Paul A. Orduna dead at 85 BY OW STAFF

Memorial services will be held on Saturday, Oct. 27, for Paul A. Orduna, the Los Angeles City Fire Department’s first African American assistant fire chief. Orduna died on Oct. 5 at the age of 85. The services will beheld at the African American Firefighter’s Museum located at 1401 Central Ave. at 1 p.m. Orduna served in the U.S. Air Force for two years where he received specialized training as a diesel mechanic. He was stationed in the Philippines for nine months and received an honorable discharge from the Air Force in 1946. In 1952, Orduna joined the Omaha, Neb., Fire Department where he remained for four years. He was offered a position as a firefighter with the Los Angeles City Fire Department in 1957. Orduna’s career as a firefighter in the racially tense ’50s and ’60’s was punctuated by isolation, hardships and indignities. Yet, his drive and commitment to succeed never wavered. In 1974, he was promoted to Captain I and supervised some of the busiest fire companies in the city. He was also recruited as an instructor at the department’s Recruit Training Academy. In 1978, Orduna

was promoted to the position of Captain II and was transferred to the community liaison office, becoming the department’s affirmative action officer and equal employment opportunity coordinator. Paul A. Orduna In June 1980, Orduna was promoted to battalion chief, a major accomplishment because he was only the second Black battalion chief in the department’s history. With the goal of becoming assistant fire chief, he returned to school and obtained a bachelor’s degree in management. In February 1986, he became the first Black assistant fire chief, and was eventually given an emergency appointment to the position of deputy chief. Orduna retired on Jan. 26, 1991, after 33 years of service. He is survived by his daughter, Gloria O’Quinn; two grandsons, Michael Holmes and Charles O’Quinn IV, and a sister, Amelia Donaldson.

Arts organization serves at-risk youth ■ Group plans to foster international program BY JULIANA NORWOOD OW STAFF WRITER

Create Now is a nonprofit organization that serves vulnerable youth ages 2 to 25 who have been abused, neglected, abandoned, orphaned, homeless, runaways, teen parents, substance abusers, victims of domestic violence, children of prisoners, gang members or incarcerated. “The youth we serve come from poverty-stricken families with histories of violence, substance abuse or neglect. These forgotten children are tucked away in group homes, shelters, detention facilities, special centers and schools throughout the Southern California region, under the radar of the general public. We have served more than 28,000 of the neediest youth in the region in 16 years,” said founder Jill Gurr. Create Now has developed an extensive database of more than 1,000 youth facilities throughout Southern California that enable the organization to match volunteers with high-risk or at-risk kids in their own neighborhood, based on the youths’ ages, genders, challenges and other preferences. Mentors are trained to help them to customize their curriculum and create appropriate materials for their youth workshops. “Through our five program areas; music, art, writing, performing arts and cultural excursions, highrisk and at-risk youth learn to express themselves in a positive manner versus the destructive ways that they have in the past. Creative expression has been proven to be very therapeutic, especially for traumatized children. Create Now programs develop youths’ talent and abilities. They build teamwork, self-esteem

and confidence,” said Gurr. Create Now provides programs and services to youth who are at shelters, group homes, Title 1 and special education schools, detention facilities and other

centers for vulnerable kids. Each year, Create Now also brings thousands of these kids to free concerts, plays and other cultural events at premiere venues throughout the region. These field trips not only educate youth

while exposing them to new types of music, theater and art, but also bring them relief and joy. In addition, Create Now arranges general mentoring, like one-on-one “Special Friend” relationships, and teaching life skills to small groups of youth. “We send out regular notices about jobs, internships, scholarships, free books, computers and other materials to the partners in our extensive network. Create Now is a conduit for individuals and businesses in the community to give back to thousands of the neediest youth in the region,” said Gurr. The newest project that Create Now is working to bring together is Arts xChange, which is a unique program that is bringing together students in Rwanda with students at an alternative continuation school, Youth Build Charter School in Compton, through Internet technology. The organization has developed a special curriculum with the Western Justice Center in Pasadena. “Sixteen youth from each country are discussing issues of poverty, violence, conflict and acceptance on a private Facebook page. At the same time, we have given them art supplies and video cameras to create drawings, paintings, sculptures and videos,” said Gurr. Create Now is planning to put on two arts exhibitions in Rwanda and L.A. with prizes for all participating youth.

Hollywood & Heaven ■ Bishop and Mrs. Ulmer marry homes to health at Faithful Central Church BY GAIL CHOICE OW CONTRIBUTOR

Faithful Central Bible Church recently honored Bishop and Mrs. Kenneth C. Ulmer for 30 years of inspired leadership to the church and to various organizations and people around the world. The beautiful celebrated 35 years of marriage, and Bishop Ulmer rang in his 65 years of life in a big way. If I said it was a night to remember, that would be an understatement. The energy, smiles and good will that flowed through the large gathering made one feel all warm and welcomed. Cameras flashed, men in their finest suits and ladies in lovely gowns, posed and hugged and laughed. Celebrities showed up here and there, but it was clear that the center of attention was Kenneth Ulmer. Church members, friends and supporters were there to honor him for his vision, wisdom, and love; through his energy and drive, Faithful Central Bible Church is touching the lives of thousands of individuals here and around the world.

‘Mimi’s Village’ ■ By Katie Smith Milway, illustrations by Eugenie Fernandes BY TERRI SCHLICHENMEYER OW CONTRIBUTOR

So how are you feeling today? If you’re feeling well, that’s great! But think about the last time you felt really sick. That’s when Mom took you to see the doctor, who looked down your throat, checked your ears, and sent you home with some medicine. But what if you didn’t have a doctor nearby? What would your family do? What would you do? In the new book “Mimi’s Village” by Katie Smith Milway and Eugenie Fernandes (c.2012, Kids Can Press, $18.95 / $19.95 Canada, 32 pages), a little girl thinks about that, and then she has a dream . . . . It’s a sad day in the village where Mimi Malaho lives. Last night, a baby died and his mother is weeping with the village’s other women. Mimi is too young to sit with them, so she quietly goes home. She worries about her mother, and the baby Ma is expecting. Her family has been lucky; nobody has gotten sick so far. But then something horrible happens! Mimi’s little sister, Nakkissi, drinks some dirty water. She was thirsty and though Mimi knew she shouldn’t do it,

others? And what could be more precious to give than a home, or having your home made safe inside and out? Thus begins an inspired partnership between Faithful Central Bible Church and Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles. This new initiative—Celebrate Home & Health—was launched in the spring of 2012 and created to promote and develop healthy homes and healthy families within the community and around the world. Exactly what does that mean? They will build homes, and clean up blighted areas by making properties habitable. With the help of their corporate and civic partners and thousands of caring individuals throughout greater Los Angeles area, they plan to build or renovate homes within the local community. In addition, through the Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles’ global network, Faithful Central plans to build and renovate in economically challenged regions of South Africa. What better way to get the ball rolling than to have a benefit concert? I’ll say this, ‘ain’t no party like an old school party!’ And nobody can do it better than Gladys Knight and Frankie Beverly and Maze. Gladys Knight kicked the evening off, singing her all-time favorites, concertgoers singing right along with her. Even her older brother Bubba sang a couple of songs, jokingly stealing the spotlight. Gladys, of course, was vibrant, and shared life lessons with the audience in between songs. And she has some nice dance moves courtesy of “Dancing With the Stars.” The well-directed and produced program under the control of Paula Bond, First Option Entertainment, also gave concertgoers an intimate look at the life of Bishop Ulmer outside the church in a videotaped series of questions asked by Shaun Robinson of “Access Hollywood.” Plus we got a tender look at the role Bishop Ulmer has played in the

she gave Nakkissi a drink by the river. That night, Nakkissi felt awful. The little girl moaned. She couldn’t keep anything in her tummy, so Ma and Pa wrapped her in a blanket and put her in their cart. The whole family started walking down the path to the next village, where there was a clinic. It took an hour. The next morning, there were lots of people lined up at the clinic. Nurse Tela took care of everyone, including Nakkissi and all the babies. As Mimi watched Nurse Tela weigh each baby, she learned that the next day was vaccination day. The Malahos decided to spend the night at the clinic so they could get vaccinated. They wanted to stay healthy. When she got home, Mimi heard her father talking about malaria, which was making lots of the village’s children sick. Mimi knew that was true, and she was thinking about a wish she’d made the day before. She was thinking about it when she went to bed and that night, she had a dream. Her dream led to an idea. Her idea led to a project. Her project led to something very good for Mimi, her family, and her whole village! Even though your child is small, you can bet she’s listening. Surely, she knows that healthcare is a big issue these days. “Mimi’s Village” takes that knowledge to the next level. Inspired by real events and real people, author Katie Smith Milway explains a grown-up issue in a kid-friendly way, and children will definitely identify with a girl like Mimi. Smith gives kids more information about Zambia healthcare workers and healthcare in general, then she and illustrator Eugenie

lives of many of our favorite celebrities, from Steve Harvey and Blair Underwood to Niecey Nash and LL Cool J. They all had words of praise and thanks. The concert continued with Frankie Beverly and Maze; these men are just magic, pure magic. Everybody was on their feet. Folks with canes, and walkers were moving to the piercing, soulful voice of Beverly. Even Bishop Ulmer and Lady T were cutting a mean cha-cha on the dance floor. We all literally danced the night away . . . line dance, Chicago TwoStep, the Temptation Walk, the Four Corners, I could go on and on. Let’s just say we danced for a wonder-

ful cause. It seems these days there is a lot of negative talk about the Black church and churchgoers in general. But that’s because these naysayers are on the outside. The church has always been the pillar of the Black community; teaching the word of God, serving the underserved, and encouraging our youth. Judging by the members of Faithful Central Bible Church under the leadership of Bishop Ulmer, the Black church remains in strong hands, helping to make our communities and the world a better place.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee

for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 714573-1965 for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this Internet Web site www.priorityposting.com for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case 20120134001615. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.
