Elected New York legislator publicly insults sons and daughters of Africa
Brooklyn elected officials speak out against New York State Assemblymember Hikind's blackface appearance. S Ringel. MJoTA v6n1 p20130226

BROOKLYN, NY, Feb 25, 2013. Today, Council Member Jumaane D. Williams (D-Brooklyn) sent a letter to Assembly Member Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn) to express his dismay at his decision to appear in blackface yesterday, as part of a basketball player costume he wore at a Purim party hosted at his home.  He called for the Assembly Member to provide a "sincere public apology for the damage caused by this episode", as well as commit to "working with community leaders to improve cross-cultural understanding".


"It is understood that cultural celebrations such as Purim can be opportunities to appear in various styles of costume, and we have certainly been defenders of individuals' freedom of expression," wrote Council Member Williams. "As elected officials though, we bear a different responsibility for our role in the public discourse, whether we like it or not. Your costume is offensive to a significant part of our constituencies for its connection to the sordid history of blackface in American theater."


Council Member Williams was joined in his call by a group of elected officials from across Brooklyn, including Assembly Member Karim Camara (D-Brooklyn), chairman of the New York State Black, Puerto Rican, Hispanic and Asian Caucus, as well as other Brooklyn Democratic Council Members Lew Fidler, Sara Gonzalez, Brad Lander, Stephen Levin, Darlene Mealy, Diana Reyna and Al Vann. 


Council Member Jumaane D. Williams represents the 45th Council District, which covers Flatbush, East Flatbush, Flatlands, and parts of Midwood and Canarsie. He is the chair of the Oversight and Investigations Committee and co-chair of the Task Force to Combat Gun Violence. He is also the Co-Vice Chair of the Black, Latino and Asian Caucus and a founding member of the Progressive Caucus. He was first elected to office in 2009.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's South Africa Office Did Not Always Properly Monitor Recipients' Use of the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief Fund. Office of the Inspector General. MJoTA v6n1 p0226

Through its Global HIV/AIDS Program, CDC implemented the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), working with ministries of health and other in-country partners to combat HIV/AIDS by strengthening health systems and building sustainable HIV/AIDS programs in more than 75 countries. CDC's office in Pretoria, South Africa (CDC South Africa), is responsible for PEPFAR funds awarded to government agencies and for-profit and nonprofit organizations (recipients) in South Africa.

Our audit found that CDC South Africa did not always monitor recipients' use of PEPFAR funds in accordance with HHS and other Federal requirements. There was evidence that CDC South Africa performed some monitoring of recipients' use of PEPFAR funds. However, most of the recipient cooperative agreement files did not include required documents or evidence that CDC South Africa had monitored all cooperative agreements.

CDC South Africa did not have written policies and procedures to help ensure that it consistently monitored the cooperative agreements for recipients in accordance with HHS and other Federal requirements. As a result, CDC South Africa did not have assurance that PEPFAR funds were used as intended by law. Subsequent to the audit period that we reviewed, CDC South Africa drafted standard operating procedures for managing cooperative agreements, including monitoring. We did not test these procedures and cannot comment on their effectiveness.

We recommended that CDC South Africa implement standard operating procedures for monitoring recipients' use of PEPFAR funds. CDC concurred with our recommendation.

FEMA registration deadline extended for Hurricane Sandy survivors in New York FEMA. v6n120130226

Feb 26, 2013 The Federal Emergency Management Agency, at the request of the State of New York, has approved a 30-day extension for survivors to register for federal disaster assistance.

The agency – along with state and federal partners and voluntary organizations – is extending the registration period for an additional 30 days in order to best serve Hurricane Sandy survivors in New York.  

The new registration deadline in New York is March 29, 2013, which is also the deadline to complete and return low-interest SBA disaster loan applications to the U.S. Small Business Administration.

The extension allows survivors in the 13 New York counties designated for federal individual assistance more time to register with FEMA.

The designated counties are: Bronx, Kings, Nassau, New York, Orange, Putnam, Queens, Richmond, Rockland, Suffolk, Sullivan, Ulster and Westchester.

People living in these counties who sustained losses due to Hurricane Sandy should register with FEMA even if they have insurance. Applying by the deadline may help survivors avoid a funding shortfall if they later find that they are underinsured or have additional damages.

Survivors who register may be eligible for federal grants to help cover various disaster-related expenses, including rent, essential home repairs, personal property losses and other serious disaster-related needs not covered by insurance.

By returning the SBA disaster loan application, homeowners may be eligible for up to $200,000 to repair or replace their storm-damaged primary residence. Homeowners and renters may be eligible for up to $40,000 for replacement of personal property.

Businesses and private nonprofits may be eligible to borrow up to $2 million to repair or replace storm-damaged property.

Individuals can register with FEMA online at or via smartphone or tablet by going to or by downloading the FEMA app.

Survivors can also register by calling the FEMA Helpline: 800-621-3362 or  800-462-7585 from 7 am to 10 pm EST, 7 days a week until further notice.

To find the nearest Disaster Recovery Center, the following options are available: Text DRC and a Zip Code to 43362 (4FEMA), and a text message will be sent back with the address.

A simple and fast way to complete the SBA disaster loan application is online, using the SBA's electronic loan application. Go to

To locate nearest SBA center, or call 800-659-2955 (TTY 800-877-8339).

More information: SBA Disaster Customer Service Center toll-free number, 800-659-2955 (TTY 800-877-8339) or 

If someone you know has been discriminated against, call FEMA toll-free at 800-621-FEMA (3362). For TTY call 800-462-7585.

FEMA’s temporary housing assistance and grants for public transportation expenses, medical and dental expenses, and funeral and burial expenses do not require individuals to apply for an SBA loan.

Applicants who receive SBA loan applications must submit them to SBA loan officers to be eligible for assistance that covers personal property, vehicle repair or replacement, and moving and storage expenses.
