WESTCHESTER, NY — Political Analyst Robert Kesten attends the opening segment of Westchester On the Level from 10-10:30am. We explore the impact President Donald Trump’s timidity or reluctance to share his concerns and tribulations over the recent terrorist murders at the Gilroy, CA Garlic Festival, at the Walmart in El Paso, TX, and at the Dayton, OH downtown entertainment district imply. Is it appropriate to define Pres. Trump as a racist when rascism has been the historical fabric that divided the nation even as it won its independence from the British Crown? Is it appropriate and balanced to suggest that the Civil War was fought for economic capacity rather than civil rights? Did it not require Pres. Lyndon Barnes Johnson to remind the nation that bigotry needed to end? While there are certain to be racists in the present day, does America still cling to its racist concepts? Is America less biased now than before and after the Civil War? Less than after the end of World War II? Are the racists of today a blight on society as they are an anachronism in almost all communities in the nations of the world? How does one define a racist? Are American still being weaned on bias and bigotry? Does America recognize its bias toward African-Americans, Hispanics, Muslims, Jews, Italians, Irish, Haitians, the LGBTQI community? Is bias here to stay? Is bias a financial construct? When will bias and bigotry no longer define some of us. And lastly, why is there a need for bigotry? In what manner does it serve the individual and/or society-at-large? What does America envision for itself? Can America surmount its bias? If so, how and when? This segment from 10-10:30am
Mount Vernon Mayoral Candidate Shawyn Patterson-Howard speaks to the quagmire she finds herself. The constantly shifting political landscape in Mount Vernon City Hall, the uncertainty of the players who are mired in the dramas of their making, and how the Mount Vernon Democratic Primary winner intends to weather the dysfunction of City Hall? Can Mount Vernon survive until the winner of the November 5th General Election is declared? Has the lack of a defined future undermined Mount Vernon’s capacity? Mount Vernonites are seething in disgust. Will Mount Vernonites patiently await a change in governance expected to be known after the November 5th General Election results are tallied. This segment from 10:30am-11am.
Yonkers Tribune Editor-at-Large Hezi Aris continues thereafter immersed in breaking news concerns with commensurate analysis.
