“Universal Declaration of Human Rights”

International Human Rights Day, December 10

Human rights are “commonly understood as inalienable fundamental rights to which a person is inherently entitled simply because she or he is a human being.” Human rights are thus conceived as universal (applicable everywhere) and egalitarian (the same for everyone). These rights may exist as natural rights or as legal rights, in local, regional, national, and international law. The doctrine of human rights in international practice, within international law, global and regional institutions, in the policies of states and in the activities of non-governmental organizations, has been a cornerstone of public policy around the world. The idea of human rights states, “if the public discourse of peacetime global society can be said to have a common moral language, it is that of human rights.” Despite this, the strong claims made by the doctrine of human rights continue to provoke considerable skepticism and debates about the content, nature and justifications of human rights to this day. Indeed, the question of what is meant by a “right” is itself controversial and the subject of continued philosophical debate. Read the rest of this entry »

“Get Involved, Be the Difference”

Everyone has their own reasons for giving back. For me, it’s simply about making the world a more fair, equitable and little better place than what I found. I know I have been blessed to grow up where I did, when I did. I believe everyone deserves the chance to live a healthy, productive life. Those are the values I learned from my family, and they’re why I started UDiON Foundation. Read the rest of this entry »

World AIDS Day!

What is World AIDS Day?
World AIDS Day is a day dedicated by the international community to raise awareness about HIV and AIDS, to demonstrate support for those living with HIV or AIDS, and to remember those who have died.   World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day and the first one was held in 1988. World AIDS Day is important as it reminds the public and Government that HIV/AIDS has not gone away – there is still a vital need to raise money, increase awareness, fight prejudice and improve education.

It is time for Electorate to take Institutionalized Racism Seriously in FL!

Here’s a scary thought: the electorate doesn’t take institutionalized racism seriously anymore.

Private ownership of land occupies a central position in American law. In the nineteenth century a link emerged in West Coast states between property ownership and race, exemplified by the 1859 Oregon Constitution, which declared that no “Chinaman” could ever own land in Oregon. During this period, “race” was legally constructed along a white-nonwhite binary, with Chinese immigrants categorized as “nonwhites.” For the Chinese in the United States, this subordinate racial status entailed strict labor and residential segregation from whites, as well as a vulnerability to mob violence. Their inability to become citizens only compounded their subordinate racial status. Read the rest of this entry »

NAAPAC Leadership Summit Speech!

A very good evening to all of you.

It is with grateful of good citizenship and personal privilege for me to be here today among all the distinguished community leaders. No impersonal representation of a culture or ethnicity can fully communicate its reality to others who have never known its living substance. Through personal relations – our curiosity can be fulfilled by a sense of knowledge; cynicism can give way to trust, and the warmth of human friendship to be kindled. Read the rest of this entry »
