Good morning Indiana! Last week, Circle City News Podcast ran into a technical weather difficulty. We want to urge everyone to remain safe and careful driving on hazardous roads, and know that if we can’t all be there for you in audio, you can count on us to find alternative routes to deliver you your Saturday news cast round up. We want to thank our sponsor, The Battery Man, Mark Nicholson of the Law Office of Mark Nicholson, for running this podcast.
On the international news front, tension continues to run high between Ukraine and Russian forces. Yesterday’s reports show the Russian military currently encircling at least 4 major Ukrainian cities. British intelligence updates us that Russia is increasing deployed forces to key cities, ie. not leading up in their fight for Ukraine ownership. We stand firmly against tyranny and pray for peace.
Grand corporations band together to support LGBTQ+ persons as USA southern states pass laws that jeopardize the safety of trans and non heterosexual youth. Apple’s Tim Cook, a member of the community, and Walt Disney’s Bob Chapek show public disappointment in Florida’s recent “Don’t Say Gay” bill. The two have paid for continual ads to run in Texas in support of the community. The state of Texas appealed its own judge to bureaucratically oppress a 16-year-old girl and her family. A 16 year old trans girl and her family are now being charged by the state of child abuse and endangerment for providing their own child with gender affirming treatments and medicine. Almost like the government thrives off of keeping marginalized, disempowered peoples marginalized and disempowered. Oh, why don’t you just go secede already? Google, Microsoft and Facebook are all in public alliance with LGBTQ+ youth. Hey Texas, when the corporations are behaving more civil than you are, find God.
On the local Indiana scene, we celebrate the community and history as we celebrate The Indianapolis Recorder’s 127th birthday. Since 1895, the Indianapolis Recorder has been an African American owned and operated news source. The news station has a longstanding legacy and reputation for reporting the truth. The news station celebrated their journey reporting history in Indiana. Withstanding hate, threats, and yet never deterred off the path of being a voice for the voiceless.
