Just blogged on the Rattler Publishing Feed by David Rattler .


Dear younger me:

Do you remember the first time we met? It was at the crossroads. Remember how we stood for what seemed like days pondering the path to take. I remember you telling me, as you pointed to the left and saying this way is crowded and even though there was safety in numbers, everyone looked the same and follows the same patterns. But I remember the unhappy expressions plastered on their phiz, as if they pondered their own individual worth based as they continued to sacrifice. Remember how we were thrown aback at the sight and how it seem like we didn't move for day, maybe even weeks,  watching them day after day, with pretty things, money, hearts filled with dreams they had not dreamed. Remember the words they spoke and it they confused us, it was if they read them from a script, one that purposely made us feel worthless, because we had no pretty things, our things were old and raggedy and sometimes torn.
Remember the day we choose a path with only a lantern in our hands to light the way. Remember how with tears in our eyes we tread through the storms while the others took shelter on back porches casting reflections and telling the stories not their own.
Remember how each day we prayed with tired feet and how our reflection, although; still a shadow took each step we took, with little money, and no pretty things, but our dreams are our dreams and our story, our story. Do you remember? I can.  It seems like only yesterday we stood at the crossroads, and even though we've made many steps since, cried many tears since that day suffered many trying times and heartbreaks. We've seen hope die in the darkest of the night and the coming of the dawn, but no matter the hills and valleys and with only a lantern to light the way we continue.  And I'd like to say how grateful I am to have taken the journey with you.
Thank you

Our Melanated World (Pilot)

Apparently there was conflict between the programming of the feature pilot program and the MCR Studio programming software. The program was to air yesterday. The conflict was realized yesterday by Ms.Reyes of Najia Group, and an inquiry was sent to Nasrene Muhammad (admin) and William Malisett (MCR-Studio) by David Rattler regarding the conflict. Neither was aware the collision control and avoidance software had malfunctioned.
We apologize for the inconvenience and are rescheduling the program for a later date.

The Saturday Meeting on the Rattler Publishing floor

If ever a definition of an uphill battle was described the Saturday morning meeting at Rattler Publishing redefined that meaning. As Stephen Crichton argued point on the building economic empowerment program, he realized quickly it was going to be an uphill battle and that David Rattler (CEO) of Rattler Publishing Global and Tammi Herenichi (President of Gemini Corporation) were prepared for battle.
Although Stephen's argument is a valid argument, he failed to sway the two top executives on key points in making the MCR project apart of the economic empowerment program. His idea would split the MCR matrix and also pull Rattler Publishing and Gemini into financing additional parts of the programs. Stephen argued that making the MCR project part of the economic empowerment program would expand the project globally would complete the agreement between Rattler Publishing and Gemini, and it would give both Rattler Publishing and Gemini greater control over the e-learning center when training new host, station managers, producers and staff to come on the network.
Ursula Turray (President of Rattler Publishing) argued in favor of the expansion, but warned it has more risk if not controlled with a firm hand. She sited past MCR problems with Station Managers and Program Host, and potential hosts, but did add that it is possible.
William Malisett (Executive Officer of Rattler Publishing) was concern about security of logos, emblems and trademarks that could become renegade items if not carefully maintained and conterolled.
Tammi Herenichi's concern was about Gemini's interest which included the rising cost to Gemini and would this new program decrease the level of support Gemini receives from the project concerning website design and hosting specials; she also reminded Stephen that Gemini does reserve the right to pull support at anytime without notice, but would continue to honor the agreement to customers gained through the MCR project.
Nasrene Muhammad (Vice President of Rattler Publishing) remained silent for most of the meeting but did state that it going to be an uphill battle if he gets approval. She didn't believe people of colour (Descendants of Africans) here in the US are at the level needed to develop a by us for only us mind set at this time. But did say it has promise as she referred to how Ms. Reyes is leading the way with MCR-Caribbean and test model of economic empowerment projects. 
David Rattler opposed the change until several questions Stephen failed to provide sufficient answers for are answered. How to gauge the forward motion of each individual stations and how to track global supply chains for each station, and the operational matrix of each person and station.
I think this battle will be raging on the Rattler Publishing floor for almost as long as the MCR project was.
If Stephen is approved for the new program the argument then moves to the Gemini floor where Nasrene then will be CEO and David will be Vice President and the argument would take a new twist in the form of demands.
Stephen has his work cut out for him.

Now is the Time

For years it seemed our forward motion as a people was stagnated and sometimes even stalled, but is recent times I have seen a resurgence in cultural searches that could only lead to the awakening of the great people, The Children of the Sun" but now is not the time to sign alliances with your natural enemy, but to seek to to to him as they have done to you. Now is not the time to place your fate in the hands of other to determine the our come. If anything, now is the time to realize, the one without eyes haven't a chance to see, nor do they want to see you and the beautiful melanated people that your are. Open your eyes and for the first time see what your ancient ancestors has called the cursed. Isn't it apparent even their God has no love for such a lowly creature, first he placed them in caves, to hide them, he stripped them on melanin separating them forever from his creation. But when they were discovered he gave them only eight generations to exist and for to rest of humanity it was the darkest of the night. 
But now the dawn comes and mark's the end of the plague that has leeched off humanity for centuries. Hold tight to that rising inside you, and watch as he that cursed them destroy them
