20 years ago, it was around 6 months that I had been in the US for the first time. My morning commute then was taking an @NJTRANSIT train from #Metropark to #NewarkPenn and then the @PATHTrain to #JournalSquare crossing over to another train to finally reach #Newport by 9 AM
On #LabourDay that year I had made my first online purchase - a @KonicaMinoltaUS camera on @eBay. How much I rue not having bought it before the #MemorialDay would come later. From the office on the 22nd floor of the #NewportTower, the #NewYorkSkyline was always breathtaking
On the #MemorialDay weekend that year, some of us friends, all in the US for the first time, went all across #Manhattan. From #TimesSquare to #NYSE and then to the twin towers of the #WorldTradeCenter all without a camera alongwith me. Always thought there will be a next time

#DidYouKnow that #Wales๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ท๓ ฌ๓ ณ๓ ฟ is 6% #Black, #Asian and #Minority #Ethnic? In 2011, this was 4%, and has grown by 2% over the past 9 years.
Over 50% of #Wales lives in or around Cardiff, Newport or Swansea...

#Cardiff is 20.6% #BAME
#Swansea is 10.8% #BAME
#Newport is 13.1% #BAME Image
We are a Welsh language speaking team of #PeopleofColour who have seen how conversations on race, ethnicity, and diversity are minimised because #Wales is "Only 4% #Black, #Asian and #Minority #Ethnic".

If you go to @GlamArchives, there's a wealth of information about the 1919 race riots in #Newport, #Cardiff and #Barry. Loads, and loads, and loads.

We visited recently to learn our history for ourselves. Here's a piece about the #aftermath of the #1919RaceRiots in #Newport
It reads "#NEWPORT RIOT SEQUEL COLOURED MAN WHO SIDED WITH WHITES

A further echo of the disturbances at Newport was heard at the local police court on Friday, when 24 coloured men+7 white men were brought up on various charges, including unlawful assembling and rioting
in George Street, #CommericalRoad+#RuperraStreet and assaulting police constable Nancarrow and various other people. One of the coloured defendants had fought with the Monmouthshire regiment in the war

2. As @renireni pointed out in Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race:

"Riots always seem to kick off in the summer." ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ
