The Price of Mutual Respect

When The Legal Team Puts A Price Tag to Resolve Illegal Emotional Trauma

When I first realized that the system was tainted in greed was when I had a situation that had my representation by Alex Hernandez Law at I just ended up getting evicted which was because the apartment complex manager stated “I didn’t want any problems” after I told her health was declining due to the mold exposure I was living in for a year, which being told that it was my doing, ended up getting a Nest Thermostat that ended reading that the home humidity was consistently 70% for the last four months and would not lower any lower in my apartment home which having a Ring doorbell had evidence of the apartment complex covering it up by painting the external part of the home immediately after the semi remodeling they did which was the means of paint. I ended up submitting a request for Alex Hernandez Law Firm and was immediately charge for the services, which I said to put a note in to determine if I wanted to fight. The day of the court case, they were MIA. When I called back, they immediately said it was non refundable, which now homeless, dealing with toxic mold syndrome, and now being told the infection was going to take my life, I ended up and adding another notch of trauma to the laundry list of traumas I was forced to resolve, which the biggest hurdle was fighting for my self respect back, as I mentioned in previous blogs was told last minute that my case which Speilberger Law did not disclose when I hired them. They said they won cases like mine before and that it was a sure shot. Thanks to a chance encounter with my existing one woman legal team during a Valentine’s Day night in 2019 at my favorite local eatery “The Dunvale Hideway” I ran into this female fatale drowning our sorrows away that ended having me do something more greater than I could ever imagine. Not only did her push to write to the Attorney General about my situation with the apartment complex help shut down the FEMA fraud they were doing, as the apartment renovations that they tried to do was way over due since Katrina and now Harvey that they pocketed but also helped have others stand up for themselves as they also were victims of discrimination, retaliation, sexual harassment, and sexual assault at my old job. Which rumor has it is why the merger ownership changed last minute.

Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob and degrade them, neither person or property will be safe.

Frederick Douglass

Frederick Douglass set it best when it comes to this sort of treatment. You would think that since Douglass’s time in the world from 1818-1895 that the world would have changed since then. But it hasn’t. It seems like it just worst and much more violent. We live in a world where we feel we can’t truth those entities that were made to protect the people. Risk perception and social norms are to be blamed for that. We all assume that if the person is in a perdicament, they obviously provoked it. But that is not true. The act of turning a blind eye is the reason why these things happened. With the crucifying of the cross to an entire entity instead of holding those responsible accountable is the reason why these things occur. Do to the guilty by association theory, we have an entity covering up for those people not because it’s favoritism, but because of the fact that they are trying to protect the entire entity, only enabling those to feel they got away with it causing more issues and potentially killing someone in the process. The theory behind that act is once you kill someone, they have a taste for it, they want more. Which in the bigger spectrum of things, it becomes the result of unresolved emotional issues and traumas they deny and refuse to resolve, thus making someone a good person into an evil and corrupt one at that. In their risk perception, they feel in their mind that they are cleansing the earth. The problem with that is that they now play God and due to a troubled mind of normally a life of trauma, become filled with hatred due to fear. Causing those along in the crossfire to be in danger. Which in an irrational response, will quickly act on what I feel in irrational rage, which fueled in entitlement will not have any remorse in the sin that they committed.

We define justice as the rights that were wronged to us when we fight irrationally, but in order to fight a fair and just fight, we have to fight in selflessness, in righteousness, in hoping that one day we will make a difference for everyone involved. Maybe that is why I am fighting a pointless fight that seems like it goes nowhere quickly. WIth social norms having people believing in assumption of the motive of people, makes my job harder. Why? Because of the fact that people think it’s for selfless intent. If they would stop assuming and have a conversation, they would realize that the motive was very simple. I was tired of seeing people wronged. If we want to go further I was tired of people letting these things happen and was tired of seeing those currently fighting doing it in selfishness. The Black Lives Matter movement had a lot of respect until they began putting people in danger and actually killing innocent people in rage. Those who don’t see what I see tend to assume that it’s out of racist intent. But when you begin putting others in jeopordy, you become a terroist plain and simple. Do I think that the whole organization is a terroist group. Not at all. What I do know is those who in their heart feel that the movement has shifted into a group that it was intended to be, a peaceful group fighting for the rights of everyone are for some reason afraid to speak up and stand up against the injustice, which allowing these behaviors just taints the group into being something that they intentionally wanted to be which was a beacon of hope. Which band wagoning is to blame on this.

“Property is intended to serve life, and no matter how much we surround it with rights and respect, it has no personal being. It is part of the earth man walks on. It is not man.”

Martin Luther King Jr.

Martin Luther King Jr. is my favorite civil leader for so many reasons. In his persona to the public, he was fighting for everyone involved. Not making it about race, but about seeking fair treatment for everyone involved. Cesar Chavez was great until he allowed the opinions of others interfere with the selflessness he intended, which I know I am going to get kick back from my Latin community, but my grandmother who admired him so much where talking about why she feels he failed as a civil leader was a lack of consistency. Which you better believe she’s on my ass as my family is starting to have a beacon of hope in me. Because it’s not about Latin lives, it’s not about black lives, it’s about fairness of all lives. All lives deserve fairness which is my slogan moving forward in my journey. it doesn’t matter if your female, male, transgendered, gay, fairness is a treatment that we still struggle with attaining at the end of the day. Because without fairness there is no justice. Without justice there’s no hope. And without hope there is no life. Which regardless of what comes my way my “courage of conviction” will keep going on this journey. “Go hard or go home” I say. But in the end no matter win or lose, I will die knowing that I at least tried. Which if the Universe is in my favor, will be a stepping stone to secure it completely. On a unserious note, don’t be surprised if conspiracy theories develop about this chick. Because band wagoning is the first step in trying to stop this chick from completing a mission. And all I have to say since I am certain that I will remain consistent and transparent b”ring it on mofos.”
