Jazmin's Pet Shop
By Mariela Bautista
Today the Departures class headed out to Richland Farms to get a couple of interviews. This day was particularly hot and sunny. We went to a very congested corner in Richland Farms in a strip mall. We walked inside a very busy Jazmin's Pet Shop where there were roosters, chickens, bunnies, and even dogs. When we arrived there we encountered a man by the name of Kenneth Earl Watts III. He has lived in Richland Farms since 1991.
Kenny works at the pet store. He was very strange and liked to talk a lot on how he is the some sort of peace maker and drama finisher in Richland Farms. He gave information on the community and gave information on the drama in the community.
We also interviewed a worker at Jazmin's Pet Shop by the name of Junior. He was sitting with his friend in the bed of a pick-up truck, on top of endless bags of feed in which he delivers to residents in Richland Farms. The interview was simple and he talked a lot about the horses - how he and his family own horses and that they like to ride them in the neighborhood.
Don't be afraid to talk to your children. This is the perfect time to talk about the beliefs you hold to be good and to encourage your children to be brave in the face of adversity.
Los Angeles County health and elected officials again highlighted disparities in COVID-19 deaths among black residents today and also warned that a recent uptick in transmission rates could result in a lack of sufficient ICU beds in coming weeks.
From the shoreline to downtown and beyond, thousands of Southland residents came out in force again today in protest of police brutality and in condemnation of the death of George Floyd while being arrested by a white police officer in Minneapolis.
This has been an emotional, powerful and historic week. We wanted to take a moment to share with you—our viewers and supporters—where we stand and what we can offer.
