BAYARD, IOWA, UNITED STATES, February 27, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ —
There’s a new social media that is making waves with people from all over and with all backgrounds. The site is called YoReSpot. Created and funded by Brandon Irlbeck of Bayard, Iowa, this site was started with the belief that all people can come together without anyone experiencing the widespread censorship that other sites enforce. Whether it’s for a meme that you post, a comment made to someone, or even for liking things too much, too fast; this censorship has gotten out of hand, and it is only furthering the divide between people. YoReSpot has many features for it’s users to enjoy, including going live, calling in messenger, games, blog section and so much more. Not only does it have a familiar feel, but it runs smooth and the peaceful community like feel is astounding. A site for unity, for peaceful interactions, no matter what your spiritual beliefs, political or personal views are.

Despite standing up for unity, this site has not been met by everyone with open arms, including some other companies. In November of 2020, YoReSpot decided to use PayPal, Inc. for a one time payment of $9.99 for an ad-free version of the social networking site. This option removes ads, and also helps support the independently owned company. After just one week of use, PayPal emailed Irlbeck, CEO of YoReSpot, to inform him they were permanently suspending his business account. PayPal emails stated they did not have to explain why or how they came to this decision of action. Naturally, wanting to know why, a phone call took place between Irlbeck and PayPal in December of 2020. The PayPal representative stated that the company didn’t want anything to do with a site promoting Save the Children and Fund Homeless Vets movements, then proceeded to hang up on Irlbeck. They have since refused to engage in further contact with Irlbeck or his team and are still holding the money. “PayPal put a hold on a pretty decent chunk of change and said they would not release it for 180 days,” Irlbeck states, “none of this makes any sense to me. We haven’t done anything against their Terms of Service.”

Following the PayPal incident, Irlbeck decided to switch to Stripe for monetizing. Stripe was founded by John and Patrick Collison, with Patrick as the CEO. Things went very smooth with Stripe for a couple months, and Irlbeck thought that those issues were all in the past. Then on 2/26/2021, Stripe emailed Irlbeck saying they have permanently canceled the account and are holding the funds for 120 days. When Irlbeck tried to get an explanation, he got the familiar response that Stripe has the right to refuse to explain why his account was suspended permanently. “Here’s the kicker though,” Irlbeck says, “Stripe will not even allow me to refund users, they have locked my account completely.” So, Stripe is not just holding the money, but refusing to allow refunds as well; they’re effectively taking control of money that isn’t legally theirs, without a word of why or any communication thereafter.

Irlbeck has emailed his team of lawyers and is waiting back to find out if YoReSpot can take any legal action. “They have already gone through every transaction,” Irlbeck states, “and have concluded that neither PayPal or Stripe’s Terms of Service were not violated, in any way.” Some of his users have asked if there is anything they can do, while others are even calling for a boycott of Stripe and PayPal, Inc. for this ludicrous action made against such a respected and hardworking businessman. Irlbeck has vowed to do his best to find a payment company that does not have these policies and won’t shut accounts down without just cause.

30 Years of Florida School Shootings

30 Years of Florida School Shootings

“School Shooting: A New Study” attempts to provide the most comprehensive study on gun violence in schools ever published.”

— Luis Aponte

WELLINGTON, FLORIDA, U.S.A., February 27, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — — February 14th, 2021 marked the third anniversary of the Parkland, Florida mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Florida librarian and MSD alumnus, Luis Aponte, has written a groundbreaking book chronicling every school shooting in the United States between January 1st, 1990 and January 1st, 2020, with the goal of having at least one copy of the book in every school library in the United States by February 2022 and has launched a crowdfunding campaign to meet that goal.

According to Aponte, there were at least 70 school shootings in Florida between January 1, 1990 and January 1st, 2020 with at least one person injured or killed. With a total of 1,205 school shootings documented across the United States over a 30-year period, “School Shooting: A New Study” attempts to provide the most comprehensive study on gun violence in schools ever published. In order to help prevent future school gun violence, this study investigates deeper than the conventional list of dates, school names, and number of victims. “School Shooting: A New Study” features additional relevant information, such as:

• Identifying the motives of the perpetrator
• Determining whether or not the firearm used was obtained legally
• The location on the school property or at the school-sponsored event where the shooting took place
• Potential known warning signs
• The perpetrator(s) criminal history
• The perpetrator(s) mental health history and history of drug use.

Aponte has launched a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to generate pre-orders of the book. With approximately 140,000 public, private, and postsecondary schools in the country, according to the National Center for Education Statistics, 10% of every school would set a fundraising goal of $770,000. Aponte emphasizes that 100% of all the funds raised in the crowdfunding campaign will go toward publishing and delivering the book to school libraries so that they may be equipped with information that may help prevent future gun violence in schools. Updates on the book’s publication will be posted on the crowdfunding site as well as www.SchoolShootingBook.com.

Dr. Marcus A. Hunter and Congresswoman Barbara Lee calls for Commission on Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation

The Commission will provide healing to the ongoing impact that institutional racism and discrimination perpetuates against people of color in the United States.

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, February 27, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Truth was spoken to power. Congresswoman Barbara Lee and Senator Cory Booker re-introduced legislation calling for the establishment of the first United States Commission on Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation (TRHT) through the legislation of H.Con.Res.100. The Commission will address the ongoing impact that slavery, institutional racism, and discrimination against people of color has had on individuals and communities across the United States.

“The murder of George Floyd and the current COVID-19 crisis plainly illustrate once again the painful and dangerous legacy that white supremacy has had in our country, and the desperate need to fully acknowledge and understand how our history of inequality continues today,” Congresswoman Lee said when H.Con.Res.100 was first introduced in June.

This re-introduction was lauded by the members of the USTRHT Leadership Group including founding member and co-chair Dr. Marcus Anthony Hunter of UCLA who coined #BlackLivesMatter. The coalition was formed in November 2020 to support the building of a movement for the establishment of a U.S. TRHT Commission. The legislation, which is supported by a broad coalition of more than 117 members of Congress as well as more than 230 civic and community partners, was originally introduced during the 116th Congress by Congresswoman Lee on June 4, 2020, and by Senator Cory Booker on December 4, 2020.

Dr. Hunter says this about the legislation, “The U.S. must seize this historic opportunity to achieve racial equity and racial healing to radically transform our society into one where the false notion of human hierarchy is finally obliterated. If this project is taken up seriously as an executive action accompanying legislative action within the new Biden-Harris administration, the U.S. can emerge on the global stage as a compelling example of how acknowledging and archiving the truth and achieving meaningful racial healing can create a transformed America where all people are treated fairly, are provided meaningful access, and receive first-class citizenship, thus preventing and mitigating future harms.”

In a 2020 report, Citigroup reported discrimination against African Americans ranging from businesses to education cost the U.S. around $16 trillion since 2000. And not acting to reverse discriminatory practices will continue to exact a cost. Citigroup estimates the economy would see a $5 trillion boost over the next five years if the U.S. were to tackle key areas of discrimination against African Americans.

Dr. Hunter is encouraging a wide range of civic organizations, business owners and people to support this legislation by joining the movement or reaching out to their local legislatures to pass the bill. He says, “real healing happens, block by block, neighborhood by neighborhood.” The more people who demand this legislation be passed the sooner we can get to healing this nation and repairing racial injustices.
