Peace Be Unto You/ 3-14-16,

Hello Everybody,

I’m Hasson Rashid, I reside at 820 Massachusetts Avenue, and my public comments relates to: Unfinished Business Item#,5 City Manager’s agenda Item# 2, Policy Order and Resolution List Item#1 and 4

I congratulate the City Council on designating the second Monday of October as “ Indigenous Peoples Day in Cambridge.” My great grand mother was a full blooded Micro -Algonquin, from among a native people that inhabited the Eastern Sea Board areas, south of Canada, and so I sympathize with the plight of the indigenous communities here in the western hemisphere. On the other hand, I’m sadden that Columbus Day will be removed. In Black American Muslim theology, it is written and stated, that Christopher Columbus was of mixed parentage,both black and white. I’m told that at the Italian city of Palermo, the birth place of Christopher Columbus, located at the office of vital statistic, his birth record can still be found, and it verifies that he was a man of color, I'm a man of color and that is why I’m sadden. But I do highly honor the moments when the Native American population is honored with justice, such as the commemoration as “Indigenous Day" here in Cambridge. I further feel that both occasions should share equal footing or a day.

The City of Cambridge once again just scored "Triple A" ratings from all three of the major credit rating institutions, this then implies that Cambridge is economically stable, and that it is mature enough for expansion of its political will, to effectively address our homelessness housing crisis, gap, and deficit, etc. At the "Finance Committee" meeting on March 3, 2016 I was invited to make a public comment, and my comment touched on the fact that ending homelessness made good economic sense, and how Cambridge’s budget supports a justice system, unfair and ineffective, for Cambridge’s homeless Americans. It doesn’t provide a plan to end homelessness, etc.

Last week on my TV program at CCTV, as part of "Women History Month Awareness," I engaged and focused, on conversation that described the troubles homeless women have with menstruation. I see that this week there is an agenda item calling for feminine hygiene products to be added to public rest rooms. For homeless women and girls, this is another issue relating to homelessness, that has been placed on the back burner by our city administrators and policy makers. As financially well off as Cambridge is reportedly to be, it should move forward on addressing the plight of it homeless citizens and homelessness resident.

I think it is good that the mayor has schedule a meeting between the City Council and the members of the school committee for march 28, I would like the city and the school board at this meeting, to address the idea of piloting a new curriculum that will help bring awareness of the links between poverty and homelessness to students. But since this is a roundtable workshop meeting, I’ll have to wait until public comment period to officially introduce this idea, for a new curriculum pilot that will help bring awareness of the links between poverty and homelessness to students.

Peace,

There is another report that Christopher Columbus was born in Genoa not Palermo.
